The Secret World fans prepare ‘investigation RP event’

    
20

The Secret World has always had a vibrant roleplaying community, and now these players are creating the next big event for the game. A group of roleplayers are planning for a large-scale “investigation RP event” for April 18th called The Visible Dark and are inviting any and all to participate.

According to the description, “The Visible Dark is a full in-character RP event. You’ll need to solve all the dark secrets behind the number of mysterious murders and reveal some gruesome conspiracies within and between the secret societies. You’ll need to use all you’ve got and more to get to the end of the bloody thread stretching from dark dungeons, candlelit halls of London, cold concrete of New York sewers and rainy streets of Seoul.”

If you’re interested, check out the rules and directions that the event team has posted.

As for the official team, it’s been posting teaser images of the next issue’s cover art, so perhaps we’re on the verge of the big content release!

melissamcdon BrotherMaynard That does not sound like the community I know at all. Sure, we have our elitist jerks as every game, but they are in a much smakker quantity than other games.

But you made me curious, what sort of build did you have?

BrotherMaynard melissamcdon No, you don’t need the standard group combo for any of the dungeons. In fact, some of them are quite much harder if you try a standard holy trinity.

delay 5000
/chat join Sanctuary
/chat join noobmares

/chat join otherchannelnames…

And you will join them automatically each time you log in.

treemonster Actually, since the revamp of the starter experience, the mobs in the zones have a much more manageable ramp up in difficulty, especially as you are getting your feet wet in the beginner zones.  Also the tutorial and rewards have been tweaked so you are better equipped as you go through the zones.
The community is pretty darn good about keeping things spoiler free, and the Sanctuary channel [/chat join sanctuary] is a “no spoiler zone”  Can’t promise there won’t be spoilers but the community keeps an eye on it. 
Also you may want to check out the beginner guide on TSWDB if you are going to jump in:

melissamcdon BrotherMaynard I would check out a few places for casual players and don’t spend too much time in Agartha general or LFG chat.  The Sanctuary channel [/chat join Sanctuary] and the noobmares channel if you are looking to start out nightmares [/chat join noobmares].  Also the LFG tool generally has pretty nice people in it [Shift+C].
Also, finding a good casual guild always helps too — there’s quite a few of them, and you can sign up over on the forums:

BrotherMaynard melissamcdon unfortunately i was actually ridiculed for making a character that had a broad smattering of skills.    I honestly can’t recall that happening in any other game before.   Maybe it was during spring break and the Middle School kids were all playing.

melissamcdon True, for dungeon runs (especially nightmare) you still need the standard group composition, bosses have aggro and thus need someone to soak the damage and then someone else to kill them and one more to keep everyone alive. But aside from that, I haven’t really experienced a situation where I was forced to go for a specific build – only one boss that I’ve been doing regularly comes to mind where you have a sort of requirement, but then it’s not that strict either… And in solo content you can do anything you like, really. Some abilities will help you more, some less, but it’s your choice.

Perhaps you ran into people who tried to force you to do what they wanted, but apart from a handful of elitist runs it’s definitely not as strict as you experienced it. Even in nightmare modes you have lots of relaxed groups who would not dream of asking you to spec XYZ, or else…

I’ve never really gotten into TSW’s RP scene, this might be worth trying out.

rottenrotny avatars aren’t very pretty, for sure.   clothing system is awesome but too few choices.
