Not sure if I'm remembered at all... even though I've been playing off and on around 10 years, I have never made a giant impact IC. Here and there. Thinking again of making a comeback and there are just so many changes. IC I grew up Sentaari and then was a Bard when those were new, and kind of sticking around Cyrene ever since. I remember when auto-class and Houses went in, and took the opportunity to play around with other classes while remaining in Ty Beirdd just because... it was kind of my home.
Now I'm not sure anyone remembers me, and apparently Houses are going away, and I'm not sure what to even do if I come back. And there are two new shiny classes full of shiny toys. I apparently landed on Serpent class because, well, a lot of fun utility (primarily wormholes to travel around, and hypnosis to mess with folks).
So I guess my actual questions are, I got a rundown from my first foray back into the game as to what's going on these days (Shallam fell into the drink, Blademaster and Alchemist came along, Houses go away)... but I always seek new and interesting things. I'm looking at different classes even, just to branch out (as I was never a very good Serpent).
And of course I wonder about places I've never been. I landed in Cyrene just because... I had friends there (I don't any more) and it was a natural fit after Shallam. But Hashan is kind of... on the decline maybe, and it could be a good place to make a difference. And so I guess my questions are just: how are the new (to me) classes... Alchemist and Blademaster, from a bashing/getting back into combat/utility front? And I know that tradeskills are going more mainstream, so alchemist may change completely. And what's Hashan up to anyway? Looking for new blood, or just basically resigned to their fate?
I guess it remains to be seen, but word on the street is that Ty Beirdd will soon be no more, which leaves me... adrift, IC-wise, but I'm kind of jonesing to come back. And anyway, what do we all think of the whole game anyway? Should I just stay away and leave my past behind me?
Thoughts are welcome, though probably I'm just a random oldster who was never anything interesting, so who cares to give me advice?
