I gave my fair shot at the game, the world just doesn’t fit with the gameplay for me. I hear there will be series, I look forward to watching them, but this as a game, and an MMO at that, not fun one bit for me.

I’ve seen people in Blue Mountain chat asking how to get rid of the appearance of that CDC respirator mask or the hazmat suit so many times! Click on the violet icon above your health bar.

Tip for handing in mission rewards, once you’ve hit 50 expertise on your main weapons keep another pair of weapons in your inventory and swap them in so the mission turn-in xp gives expertise to them. Just remember to swap your main weapons back in before entering combat again, not that I’d ever forget to do something like that of course… *embarrassed cough*

When I’m redoing missions for my daily challenges, I’ve started going for the ones with revenants in (The Raven in Kingsmouth, Jack’s Back & Dear Reader & The Strange Boat House in the Mist in Savage Coast, one in BF & one in CF) so I can someday upgrade my museum, getting the other 2 side missions I need from area bounties along the way.

The CotSG statues do have item icons rather than people icons, there are only 2 people icons on the whole map!

I was expecting the influx of Aurum from people transferring their Funcom points to drop its price on the Exchange, but instead it seems to have gone up. My guess is that the loss of goodwill from the dreadful way Funcom’s handled it has actually made people less willing to spend real money on Aurum?

Good tips there, thx.
They went up due to a massive injection of currency, thankfully they put a limit on Funcom point transfer or nothing would be affordable anymore.

Yes, I did enjoy Blue Mountain; the haunted house, the stealth missions in the mine and the Orochi camp, the Wabanaki quests, to say nothing of the Tyler Freeborn quest chain.

But, speaking of Egypt, I was feeling all smug and satisfied that I was nearly finished with City of the Sun God and ready to move on to vampire land, when I came across one last mission in the north not far from the Orochi camp which lead to the veritable quest chain from hell. It was annoying almost every step of the way, culminating in the worst, most excruciating tomb crawl I’ve ever experienced in a game, even when referencing a Youtube walkthrough. It was a ‘sorry I ever took up PC gaming moment’ for sure. In fact in someone’s blog on that final quest (In the Dusty Dark), one person in the comments called it a new kind of hell, and another said he was ready to kill himself over it!!! Now that’s saying something. Consider yourself warned. ;-)

Anyway, I love the dark brooding X-file-ish/Deus Ex ambience of the game, and the story is very good bordering on great. That said, although many of the quests are amazing and way above what other mmo’s I’ve tried have to offer, a few of the quests (like Dusty Dark) have been beyond annoying. Definitely a love hate relationship with me.

Lots of people seem to hate the Egypt zones and the Call of the Nameless / Dusty Dark mission chain, but I really like both the zones and those missions. For me, Dusty Dark has fantastic atmosphere, awesome lore and some great puzzles!

I think you misunderstood me. I love desert maps; I think I’m one of the few who liked Tatooine in swtor, and am very much looking forward to Paths of Fire in GW2. Also, Egypt has some of the best NPC’s I’ve seen in SWL. Loved the banter between the sentinels and their father the priest of Amun, and that particular story was rather poignant in places. That said, my point was that it is always a bit of a downer when you think you are finished with something, only to find that you are not done by a long shot.

Anyway, I do have a dog in this hunt as it were. After finishing those tough puzzles in Dusty Dark, I could not get past the mummies. I would try to sprint past them, but as soon as I reach the entrance to the big room it was like ‘freeze’ followed by one shot kill. :( I don’t get it? In the vids I watched it shows the players sprinting past them, so why can’t I? I have yet to find a solution to this on the web.

That mission leads to one of the best solo fights, though.
