We’ve all seen classes and gear hit with the nerf bat from time to time in MMOs — hey, it’s a fact of life! But actually giving players foam weapons seems like the devs are grossly overstepping their duties.
Minimalistway shares this World of Warcraft evidence: “Sometimes the game asks me not to kill mobs but to lower their health, for a high level player that’s impossible, i can one-punch most low level mobs, so right now the best weapon i have is this Soft Foam Sword, for when you need not-to-kill a mob. The monkey with a fez is my pet Charles.”
“I took part in New World preview and I was pleasantly surprised how many armors, how different they look and how good was dyeing system,” shared Kinya. “There was one set from faction vendor, where hat looks like colonial wig — and I love it.”
One thing that I learned last week is that if we want to get record One Shots submissions, we just need to ask everyone to show off their super-duper-awesome weapons.
“In Guild Wars 2, my necromancer has an obvious identity problem at the moment,” shared Toy Clown. “She’s wielding the Lorekeeper’s Greatsword, which I love so much that she’s identifying as a dark paladin for now.”
Mysecretid took us back to a very familiar locale: “I returned to City of Heroes via the Homecoming servers and resurrected one of my old favorites, my martial arts street scrapper, Code Red. While it feels surprisingly good to be back in the game world, and the gameplay mechanics remain surprisingly versatile and player-friendly, I confess that the game’s graphics have aged more severely over time than I expected.”
Of course, the most epic weapon of them all is one that any self-respecting citizen of the Shire is going to have hanging up in his or her kitchen. Stormwaltz pulled the cover off of this closely-held secret from Lord of the Rings Online.
“Jenaisse, stalwart postal worker and part-time Bounder (afternoons, weekends by appointment), wields the ancestral weapon of all Hobbits: the cast-iron frying pan., cosmetically equipped over a stout club.”
What do you see a million times every week in your MMOs? Dead monsters, of course, because you’re an amazing keyboard warrior. So for this week’s screenshot challenge, share a pic of a (morbidly?) interesting dead mob, whether big or small!
