Warhammer Online Wrath of Heroes

Hot news! Bioware/Mythic is working on Warhammer Online: Wrath of Heroes – newest BioWare that puts us in a fight in competitive PvP arena combat.

Game mixes the player-versus-player combat of Warhammer Online with the champion system of games like DOTA to create a unique free-to-play competitive online experience. Bioware noted that this game is intended to provide an experience other from Warhammer Online so it won't have RvR competitive gameplay. Instead, Wrath of Heroes offers, extreme scenario-based combat built on 3 teams of 6 players each, where rounds last 15 minutes and we can change heroes on the fly. It also emphasizes leaderboards, cool and unique heroes, and a tiny download client (around 1GB). Currently developers are testing beta.

This is the legendary Warhammer Online like you've never seen it before where to emerge victorious and claim your rightful place atop the leaderboards, you must live to fight.

Features include:

Accessible Gameplay: Fast fierce fun that takes the best from Warhammer Online and delivers dynamic 3 Team PvP scenarios all for free.

Explosive Three Team PvP Combat: Experience innovative 6 v 6 v 6 battles where the competition is fierce and strategic alliances are made to be broken .

Swap Heroes on the Fly: Change the tide of any battle by selecting a new hero mid-game - confound your foes and dominate the battlefield.

How game is looking? Well pretty nice, but isn’t this not what are we waiting for?? It’s not a surprise that we are all waiting for free to play Warhammer Online, second game set in Warhammer universum is alright I guess, but it’s still NOT what I want right now…After Lord of the Rings Online free to play, Age of Conan: Unchained, it’s time for Warhammer Online free to play + big expansion with all kind of new ideas and content and more more more more for all WAR community. Warhammer Online need resuretion, need new life and with F2P model it’s possible. In other hand I’m wonder, how Bioware will manage with shop, pay options – it’s very easy to destroy the game and turn great Warhammer Online, into pay to win crap…


Check out the best war games

Welcome! Today I would like to present several, very good free online war games. I need to have a longer break from War online you know…

Galaxy Online is a two dimensional Sci-Fi, space, browser-based, MMORPG where players are forced to puzzle together a galactic empire single planet at a time. Begin in your personal sheltered solar system dubbed ‘home’ and build up your materials until you’re sure enough to send forces to the rest of the world.

It’s great result in free online war games genre.

Berserk Online can be told as a really marvelous strategy game, given its mix of classical practice card games gameplay and its special board games elements which make the gaming title even more strategically. The universe in Berserk Online is being split into two Realms: Light and Darkness – typical in online war games.

As they discover more, they are finding out their own relation to the fallen city. Atlantica Online offers gamers turn-based combat, a mercenary system and city/country administration systems like in best free online war games.

Altis Gates is a free to play and enjoyed in turns, 2.5D fantasy MMORPG.It is set in almost forgotten world of European stories and legends. The stories are set in the zone of Altis, an universe that takes. Altis is amazing online game named Altis Gates.

The MMOG Open Beta Version presents the player with a vast game universe developed of two hundred solar systems with four thousand and five hundred regions divided into five galaxies.

WAR patch 1.3.5

Welcome! Our friends from Mythic are working very, very hard under 1.3.5 patch for Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning. In upcoming version 1.3.5, both Contested Altdorf and Contested Inevitable City “will be receiving a massive overhaul”. One of the hottest changes are connected to endgame campaign in WAR. The endgame content for the Campaign, after this patch will be 100% RvR-driven.
Check out some of changes in 1.3.5
General Information

- All PVE instances within the Contested city will be disabled
- City sieges will now be a 24 versus 24 battle.
- Defenders and Invaders will both have a chance to get some of the best items available in the game, including our most favorite Sovereign equipment! Oh yeah I love this item set haha
- City sieges will now last a maximum of 2 hours.

- All present at the conclusion of any Stage within the Contested City will have a reward lockout timer applied to character. This reward lockout timer will force us to opt out of Public Quest loot for that specific Stage for the duration of the timer. Gamers will be able to be part of Contested City battle even if you have a reward lockout applied to our avatars and rewarded with spoils in the form of Crests.

- The Contested City after the setup phase will have all 3 Stages reward lockout timers applied to our avatars. This is to discourage gamers from leaving a Contested City battle midway through if it appears his or her Realm is going to lose the struggle.

I picked the most important ones. You can check out all patch notes on official website

When this fantastic patch will be released? Is being released now!I’m thinking about break from Warhammer Online 2-3 months without WAR should be very nice for me. What is interesting, Mythic dudes are talking about mutation changes connected to my sweet career - Marauder to make him dual-wield class – as you probably know, now Marauder off hand is “mirror” of his main hand. Is it worthy? Why not? After that I have to farm another weapon and I hate scenarios! Scenarios are good nice but when you need to farm around 800 of them to achieve your goal it's really pointless. After few hundreds Reikland Factory I’m really sick when I see this scenario...

See you again on my weblog!

WAR patch 1.3.4

Welcome on my blog! According to latest news we will witness new patch for the Warhammer Online very soon. 1.3.4 Warhammer update should be on the test servers by the first week of February.

WAR Update will introduce an entire new line of weapons earned via Realm vs. Realm, change some of scenarios (they want to remove all less popular ones), and add a change to the way the campaign functions (hurraaay!!!!)

Weapons changes – all new weapons will be purchasable via a vendor with completely new currency system earned via Scenario game play from tiers 1-4. Sound fantastic right? I just can’t wait to change my weapon, because I’m using good but old Scalebreaker Mallet (60 DPS, +32 strength, +11 initiative, +23 toughness, +3 critical chance and talisman slot) – I know its great weapon for Marauder but I need something far more deadly than this one. My latest drop is nice weapon from Warlord Quests, which is Crusher of the Unending Violence (63 DPS, + 39 strength, + 24 wounds, + 21 melee power + talisman slot). These new upcoming weapons will be probably so hard to get that we will need more than 4 months of farming to get one of them. Farming, farming, farming…it’s all about farming and subscription…anyway let’s get back to our subject.

Campaign changes – Another interesting change is that once a Contested City flips into the Captured state (or Stage 2 – it’s the same thingy) the Open RvR Campaign will restart. Then we must decide, return and defend our realm or kill king/finish Warlord Quests? I think it’s good idea – no more Order blocking the way to king ;-) or vice versa!!!

Scenarios changes – they will completely change the current structure of Scenarios by removing some of the less popular and streamlining the tiering of Scenarios.
Sound cool right? Well, I just can’t wait for more and more action! Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning is kinda best MMO RPG available!

See you again!

What Warhammer Online needs

I've found lately very interesting post on Werit blog, where author writes about what Warhammer Online need. I think it is safe to say most WAR players want Mythic to release an expansion soon. What does WAR need to do in a hypothetical expansion?

According to his blog, first important part is...

Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning will be attacked by Skavens! Yeas rodents will attack everything on their way as a new race! While last year was technically the Year of the Rat, the rodents seem to have taken over this year as well in the form of the Skaven. All were excited when it was first announced that Warhammer Online would at last feature new, fancy Skaven race, even there would be certain limitations…. Like other races, the Skaven have 4 classes unique to them. Warlock Engineers deploy boost magic & action points equipment while fielding powerful effects borne of Warp, Gutter Runners (ninja dps or something) stay in the shadows & sabotage fortifications, Rat Ogres (tanks or something like that) can sow confusion and panic with their strong frames, and Pack Masters support the nearby Rat Ogres and spur their comrades forward! Yeah Warhammer Online rule!

More Renown Ranks! As you probably know, the Renown Rank cap is 80 and a bunch of gamers have reached it (farmers...). Mr Werit - In an expansion, this cap should be raised by 20 to 100 and he suggests that best reward is a new tactic slot would be an excellent reward. In my opinion rising to level 100 Renown Rank is too much. Maybe to 90 is a lot better idea, but I can’t tell you much how much renown our characters get in future expansion. If more, I say – hell they should rise to 100! Mythic is also adding the Doomflayer (RR 90) and Warpforged (RR 100) sets. The set bonuses for these upcoming shinnies are currently still in development and not yet set-in-stone, however this should give everyone a great idea of what to expect as I doubt we’ll see them change too much from what they look like right now.

Author has also another good idea, when expanding the RR cap you must keep all the low level folks in mind (casual players). In order to help them keep up, I envision a new loot drop which gives X amount of renown. I think this idea is really awesome and will helps many players with very dull renown rank leveling.

These sets are found on the standard token-based armor vendors in your Capital City, however they are purchased with new tokens. These new tokens are:

=> Captain’s Medallions
=> Doomflayer Crests
=> Warpforged Crests

One can only assume they are earned in the new Dungeon or by killing Skaven-players in RvR.
He also suggest New Crafting – they should also fix old one, because crafting system is bad, More Guild Ranks – now guild can achieve rank 40 and of course - New RvR Zones. This is the big feature of the expansion.

I really hope that Mythic in expansion will add this kind of content...oh yeah I really do...

Aion Online

Did you heard about fantastic upcoming MMORPG game called Aion Online: Tower of Eternity. Is this Warhammer Online and World of Warcraft killer? Aion created by NCsoft’s Aion Team Development Dept, a major Korean game developer. Well, if you are bored with Warhammer Online, you can always find out more about Aion. This game already won the award “Best Korean Game of the Year”. Korea are talking that Aion Online has the epic scale, immersive story, and stunning graphics and sound design.

Well, game is looking really nice, but people are complaining about all farming and leveling stuff (second World of Warcraft with grinding, grinding, grinding...etc...) just like in other similiar games from Korean - Lineage or Lineage 2 ehh good ol days of Lineage :-). Aion has also very huge character customization capabilieties, you can create avatar who is looking just like you or even Chuck Norris! Yeah its true!

Game is already huge hit, especially in US where is nr 1 selling game in 2009! And what about Warhammer Online? It's hard to say where WAR is going to...I hope in better place...

PS. I'm playing in Warhammer Online as Marauder and my good old character is already on 60 renown rank. Farming renown is kinda dull these days, but I really love my character and it's hard for me to leave Warhammer and play in Aion Online :/

Warhammer Online Land of the Dead and Bioware attack!

Welcome! As you already know, few weeks ago has been released special free expansion for Warhammer Online, Land of the Dead. Well, I already been there and I'm little bit disappointed, because this new area is small and you need only few hours to discover most of it.

In comparision with Lord of the Rings Online: Shadow of Angmar, where Turbine added enormous areas like Forochel, Land of the Dead is kinda microscopic - “much ado about nothing”. I don't want to be cruel, but if Mythic want to popularize Warhammer Online, this kinda way, well Warhammer will fall soon.
I was very excited when I read about other thing, that Bioware will be involved in Warhammer Online, and this probably best thing I read this year!!!(related to Warhammer Online of course..)

I hope that this way, Warhammer Online change into better online MMORPG, because EA Mythic well, they they are lack of ideas.

You can check out more about Lineage - this fantastic game is one of the best.

Personally I need some time off and rest. Warhammer Online toke, larger part of my life. Anyway i played a lot as Chosen, Magus and Marauder + Knight of the Blazing Sun and Bright Wizard. I've got Marauder on 40, Magus on 20, Chosen on 10 and KotBS on 19 + Bright Wizard on 15.

Warhammer News

Welcome! The Heavy Metal event has begun and we are able to play little bit sooner as the Knight of The Blazing Sun and The Blackguard. Yupi! Also some info for NOOBS! Well if you want to go AFK while doing Public Quest areas or during keep battles - you will no longer receive contribution credit towards those encounters! Yeah that true and this is part of Patch 1.0.5! Another cool thing is that players will no longer appear mounted when they are not. Yeah they are fast..i know this bug around 3 months or something...

Anyway latest patch is little bit small, there is also improvement: several issues have been addressed that previously allowed players to get to locations they were not supposed to be able to reach. Also this one is good for anyone

And in this movie, our friend, Paul Barnett is telling us details about Knight of the Blazing Sun. Knight is looking quite cool in his gold armor and gold everywhere fancy look :D just listen Paul he's knows!

Anyway I'm still leveling my dear Bloodthirster, powerful Marauder of Chaos. I'm not interested in Black Guard or Knight of the Blazing Sun, because playing as a tank is far less interesting then playing as dps. Of course you can use doublehanded weapons and be spec like dps, but I already picked my favorite character :-)


Warhammer Online patch 1.0.5

On official website for Warhammer Online, i found some information about upcoming very big update. In Patch 1.0.5 we will be able to test all in-game improvement on Beta reaml with copied characters beforehand. I must say that this update is one biggest update ever released for Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning.
The patch has many improvement, most of them are related to specific class. I found some interesting updates for my Marauder :-) :

Skill Tainted Claw, from patch this ability will now be increased in duration by Ailments, not Cripples.

Wave of Mutilation: The amount that stats contribute to the damage of this ability has been slightly increased to make it consistent with other damage over time abilities.

Deadly Clutch: The Value of this debuff has been reduced to 50%. In addition, 25% of the value the target is healed for (after debuff) also affects the Marauder.

Rend: The amount that stats contribute to the damage of this ability has been slightly increased to make it consistent with other damage over time abilities.

You can read about other improvements right here. I found also two interesting general in-game improvements:

- More penalties and offsetting for players that try to garner renown and XP by going afk in Scenarios and Public Quests.

- Morale abilities should work more reliably.

Warhammer Online reviews and patch info

What about reviews about Warhammer Online? Well I've found some information about that on wikipedia and i can say that Warhammer was acclaimed very well:

Warhammer Online, small review

Hi guys! So we are after premiere of Warhammer Online :-) i was really sucked up by this great mmo, EA Mythic created top quality MMO for everyone. Now we are able to fight against other players in extreme player-vs.-player battles in special scenarios or fight on contested territory in a never-ending struggle for supremacy.

I was thinking long time which character is best for the beginning and after few hours i finally.. Became blood-thirsty, savage Marauder of Chaos! My other option was Chosen of Chaos or Witch Hunter, but powerful melee dps, Marauder was best choice (of course in my opinion).
Ok so what is so cool in Warhammer Online? First of all i like it that every item is without any durability! Yeah it's maybe a detail but i was sometimes really frustrated during the game when i was on some kind of raid and half of my inventory was broken. NO MORE!

Another thing is very dynamic combat. Everything in Warhammer Online is faster then in other MMORP games. I played a lot in World of Warcraft, Lineage 2 and Lord of the Rings Online and i never fought as fast as in Warhammer Online.

Last things are scenarios and Public Quest. It's very good idea and i think playing with other players never has been so easy, now players can hang around in scenarios or at Public Quests and have a lot of fun, grinding together! There is a lot of scenarios in Tiers 1-4, from large ones to smaller one with more intensive PvP action (i think these scenarios are the best to farm renown points fast).

My character is called Bloodthirster and I'm currently rank 26. Leveling is kinda a fun, but the most fun is to play on Realm vs Realm areas where you need to siege castle and lock (or dominate) zone with other players of your faction. If you succeed it, you will earn renown reward - around 3,500 renown points - which is quite large amount of these points…

Another thing is...Ever heard about Skirmishes?

This is probably the most basic form of Player vs Player available to any player in Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning. Skirmishes consist of 1 on 1 (or group vs. group) combat that will see each side combat until one or both sides die, or run away. Because skirmishes are open world combat they do not follow any structured rule set. This means that players can attack a single opponent as a group (ganking) attack a gamer of a much lower level, or attack while another player is fighting a mob. Because there is no rule structure, we can and will do anything within their power to win the fight. It’s pretty fun. It’s maybe one of the most entertaining activity in WAR – I enjoy this kind of playing, but you must be strong enough to beat most of your enemies, or you will be ganked, kicked – you will lose many times. If you die few times, try to change tactics and attack your enemies from ambush, or join gank parties (roam party). You can earn a lot of needed Renown and this way get better and better gear (Annihilator, Conqueror, Invader, Warlord, Sovereign…and maybe more in the future!). I mean greater item sets.

Skirmishes can and will be fought for any reason – when you are bored or looking for more renown. Whether someone holds a grudge against another dude sees an opportunity where they hold the upper hand, or decides that they wish to Player vs Player at that moment, eventually every player will find themselves skirmishing in orange Player vs Player Zone. You must remember, because of the overall purpose of Player vs Player within Warhammer Online, winning a skirmish is helpful to your side of the conflict. With every kill in a skirmish a gamer earns victory points to aid realm and lock zone. This makes open world Player vs Player great, especially since the nature of skirmishes allow for the initiating to quickly and with little effort score victory points (VP) to win. What can I say more? Just play in Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning and seek out for more skirmish fun!
