Sword and Bored: Area of effect

MMORPGs aren’t about solo gameplay. Sure, there are activities that you can do by yourself, but a lot of content becomes great only when you group up with another player to overcome obstacles. And we saw in the last story arc that Mo can do that, but now he’s found another type of content that might require grouping with other players.

When Jef presented me with this particular comic storyline, I did a fist pump. This is a great direction to take Mo’s character, and the storyline is totally an MMO thing that you don’t find in other kinds of games. Let me show you what I mean in this week’s comic…

The archer should abandon this crappy MMORPG and start playing real MMO for real men. Where he has Multishot, Explosive trap and Barrage.

wolfyseyes It’s one of those great mysteries, like how to VeggieTales play guitar without any hands?

That takes me back to my Nanotechnician in Anarchy Online. Some Enforcer runs past mongoing (AoE taunting) and stealing all my team’s mobs. I grab my NT and thank the enfo for neatly rounding them all up for me before AoE nuking them all before the enfo’s friends can get a lookin.

Was that from StrikerS? It’s been awhile since I’ve seen that. o.O
….but I’ve always appreciated Nonoha’s use of pink wings on her stave. <3

Without getting into a weird and pointless No True Scotsman about this, I would point Madoka is close to a spell slinger, save the fact she can materialize her weapon magically. Kinda in part what makes her a mage. But one that conjures weapons, as opposed to casting a Frostbolts (WoW), drawing magic circles (Dresden) or using a wand as a foci (Potter). So let’s not get too technical about this, shall we. Ta. <3

ManastuUtakata samruck Mage and magic girls are pretty different from each other.  And also Madoka was an archer.

CrowingOne BalsBigBrother well lets see wolfyseyes  could come along and cover the catering …. um …. provide sparkling conversation and swap beer chat with DK :p  You can never go wrong bringing along a little person in pink with pigtails so ManastuUtakata too. 
As you say though there are too many good people here and I have a hard enough time keeping track of my own name or what day it so apologies from me too.
Thorsday right?

And that’s why I love mage and play all the time in mmos. Not to mention you get to wear a robe instead of armor and stay in fashion too.
