Top 10 WAR F.A.Q for New Players
With the launch of the highly acclaimed MMORPG Game, Warhammer Online, many mmorpg players from all of the world are starting to populate the world of WAAAGH!. With this in mind and having the privilege to play from open beta, we thought that it could be helpful to make a Top 10 WAR F.A.Q for New Players.
1. Which server to choose?
It important before choosing the server, to see the population balance between the faction, so it advisable to get on a high to full server (preferably for Order and Destruction), even if you stay on queues, because in this game it important that the server to be as populated as possible.
2. What’s the best faction?
While numbers matters usually, from my experience with open RVR, the group that coordinates the best wins, even if they are half in numbers then the enemy, so choose whatever fits you, tho people are saying that order have lower numbers, which is not always true.
3. What’s the best class?
While WAR is a RVR game after all, where big armies fight for fame and supremacy anytime in the world, it important to understand that it a team based game, so choose what you like to do when participating in this clashes. From healer, tank, damage dealer, ranged damage dealer, etc. Also with time you can become a hybrid if you want, by specializing in the dps, tank, support trees. Healers can do damage in this game, and also they are hard to kill if you’re a not a damage dealer.
4. What’s the best way to level, gain rank?
The beauty and the success of this game is that you get xp from about anything you do, so sometimes you will notice you leveled without even knowing. If you are PVE player you can level from the normal quests given by NPC, Public Quests which are great, exploring and unlocking the world, and by just playing and reading the Tome of Knowledge you can find out that you can get xp for anything you do, and you choose what to do next. On the other side you can basically level by doing RVR scenarios and some outdoor RVR. You get enough xp from participating in RVR so you can only do that if you really want to.
5. How do I get PHAT LOWT!?
You get equipment by doing normal quests, you get good rewards from participating in public quests, and finishing all stages, thus getting rewards for each stage where the last two give the best rewards. You get random world drops in RVR or in PVE which sometimes are great. I got some nice shoulders from a RVR scenario. And last you get to buy Renown Gear from Renown Merchants in the cities, which are accessible if you level up in Renown Rank which is basically the PVP – RVR rank. The more you participate in RVR, Scenario and Out Door RVR, the faster you will level your RP rank, and by killing enemies and conquering RVR Objectives, Keeps.
6. Where is the Renown Merchant for rank/level 10?
Until level/rank 8-9, you will be able to purchase Renown Gear from Merchants from your War Camp in Tier 1 (deselect Filter Usable to see all items), after that your next Renown Gear Merchants you will find them on the top floor of the Keeps in the Tier 2 lands. But if your faction doesn’t own the keep, well get in a Warband and Conquer the Enemy Keep! You’re still here?!
7. What happens when a territory is controlled by a faction?
In tier 1 (first map where you start), if your faction controls that territory, all players there will get 20% Renown Bonus, 20% Influence Bonus (with this you advance trough the stages of the Public Quests), + 5% Buy Discount at all Merchants, – 5% Sell Discount at all Merchants, and the chance to piss your enemies off =)) . In Tier 2 it gets more dramatic, besides the bonuses if your faction doesn’t control a keep, well you can’t buy Renown Gear, so no PHAWT Loot! But you still can get decent to great equipment from PVE and RVR Scenarios. Tier 3 and 4, well we are not there yet, but it something similar.
8. When I can buy my first mount?
You can buy your first mount at level/rank 20, and it costs 15 Gold. So far we know that Chaos have Horses, Orcs have Pigs, Goblins have Wolfs, and DarkElfs have Dinosaurs to ride. What about Order? No idea, Pink Ponies maybe.
9. How do you visit other lands?
You can visit other lands from your faction by visiting a Flight Master, usually located on the War Camp, last village in your area, close to the RVR objectives. From there you can fly to your Capital, or visit the Tier 1 lands of your allies and get back of course.
10. How do i meet or play with my friends from the other allied faction?
Well until you get to the War Camp with the Flight Master, you can group with your friends from the same faction, and participate in RVR Scenarios. The one who joins the scenario from his territory will automatically take the party members with him in that RVR Scenario from that territory and vice versa.
