WCPI Spotlight

February 25, 2009

Recently we have joined the uber secret club of awesomeness initiative on Warhammer Alliance to help promote other community members, thus giving it the name WAR Community Promotion Initiative. I highly encource people active in the WAR community to check it out and participate. You get some perks as a forum member, but aside from that it’s a great way for people to become more aware of the community and what is going on. So clicky the link!

For our first week, we’ve chosen to feature Ferrel’s article on crafting over at Epic Slant. It was a great trip down memory lane, recalling past ways of going about crafting in MMOs. He points out that in WAR crafting is very much an after thought, which I love. I don’t dread having to find/buy recipes to craft. It’s simplified, compared to other games where in order to make one piece of armor you need to waste a week preparing everything. Instead of crafting for an afternoon, I can smash faces in ORvR instead. Ah! Much more appealing. Also love the D&D theory he creates at the end. Though I must say, sifting through mail and putting an inventory filled with gear up on AH isn’t my ideal way to have fun in D&D, but I get monies! I miss those good ol’ days where you went on this epic campaign with your friends to eventually obtain a weapon that is beyond anything you can make.

For more on Ferrel’s views on crafting and other happenings in the MMO world, check out the blog!

    Thank you kindly for the mention!

    You’re absolutely right though. Selling things on auction houses isn’t exactly that great for the D&D metaphor. I was going to write a skit about this for sock puppets but time was short! Perhaps I’ll get to that in a week or two.

    Puppet socks! =O

    You could also bribe Pancakez with a cookie or two and I’m sure he’ll do a circle animation to compliment it.

    And you’re very welcome! If anything, thank you for making an awesome article.
