Tell me what your main goal is going to be in-game

Greetings everyone,

I'm sure we're all excited for the game and have a pretty solid idea of what each of us is going to do. One is becoming an alchemist, the other one becoming a tinkerer and someone else wants to become the best mage there is for example.
Now my question is: What is your main goal going to be?

Why I ask this question is because there are so many aspects to the game, that I can't make a decision on what to do.

What is your main focus going to be and why? And how are you going to accomplish your goal? What is the benefit from achieving the goal? Who is going to help hold you accountable and provide support, motivation, and coaching along the way, if you need it?

I'm really curious!

I hope I can learn a thing or two from your motivations!

Thank you in advance.

    The beauty of an open world game with PVE and PVP influencing more than just personal character progress is that you can go where the wind takes you. Actions and, indeed, non-actions can have impacts in the environment, your fellow characters and the world at large. And there-in lies the beauty in its design. Find your niche, change it, craft, build a local trade empire only to have to defend it from raiders, competing nodes. The potential is pretty limitless and is only held back by your wishes. Be a bold adventurer and you will smile in success and languish in the setbacks. And that is compelling!

    Good luck in your upcoming journey...

    That's a good motivation right there. You're right, It's one of the things that makes this game so good and special.

    Thank you!

    My main goal playing this game would be to HAVE FUN! seriously, I don't really mind what I do as long as I enjoy it. PvE, PvP, Questing, Grinding, Crafting, Exploring, I'll do it all as long as it's enjoyable to do.

    Major goal; To catch the biggest fish with my smallest reel-n-tackle. After all, what is life worth if one can't relax by the river and just watch ones bobber drift along with the current?

    Minor goal; Rule the world. Ain't even that difficult - Just invite everyone to a good fish fry now and then. Their gratitude turns into votes and, viola!, mayor of all known lands and settlements.

    Gotta keep one's priorities properly lined up, eh.

    I really like the node system, I'm gonna do everything I can to level up the nodes and see progress in the world, but in the end I'll just try to do everything this awesome looking game has to offer.
    What seems special about this mmorpg apart from others is the ability to affect the world, and how to world will constantly change.
    I believe that seeing your actions change the world around you will feel very rewarding and satisfying.

    I'm torn between the idea of being a "bounty hunter" as I <strong>love</strong> pvp >:) the idea of killing people for money <em>grin</em>. Ehm, and the healer role. But the fact we can cross the classes fits me right. So yas, that's the plan.
    <em><strong>Best healing bounty killer.</strong></em> >:)

    Forget the "Tea Party". I can tell, that you are a true mercenary, wishing for a free life, a soldier of fortune.

    I think I am going to focus on the economy aspect^^ I really enjoy the caravan system and I think if you are able to properly organize them you can make much money out of this :D (and you easily stay in connection with a lot of players/guilds)
    Depending on how powerful they are going to make the crafter I think this also could be worth focusing on because you can travel around the world, collect resources and you´re able to craft powerful items (for your own or to sell them on the market)

    I want to be a lizardman that can have a dragon/giant reptile as a pet/mount. Pretty much that is my number 1 priority. After that, we'll see.
  • Options
    My focus will be on perfecting my crafting profession and build up strong trade routes. I will mostly accomplish this by the help of my guild. Hopefully there will be many willing to gather and process materials so I can craft them into fine gear, then selling it off far away for maximum profit.

    I hope to get in touch with other merchants in other guilds to establish strong connections that will benefit everyone. Looking forward to how this will work in game.

    I want to be that one corrupted player that kills Bounty Hunters.

    For me it will depend largely on what my guild needs. If we have a bunch of crafters I'll gather. If everyone rolls a gatherer I'll craft......though if the pet/mount training is any fun I might have to look into that at least a little bit...............oh and of course try to take over the world
  • Options
    I don't know yet, but I want two characters... One will be for group play like PvE, defending caravans, helping nodes, etc.
    Second one will be for solo play... I wish solo play will be better than in different games... I wanna be something like a mercenary... :)

    <joins the teaparty with his own tea flaggon> HUSSARH!

    Well, what can I say, I'm a humble man and only have humble goals. My number one priority in this game, is gathering a few people to storm that castle that overshadows all the others and make it my new home.
    Sadly a castle will only consist of the castle related stuff, I guess, so part of the goal would be to build up a metropolis in the vicinity too so we have all we possibly need for entertainment and services to make your life go smooth in a littles ride away.

    I guess that covers it, all I want to do is build a nation.

    I have a hard time narrowing it down to one main thing. Something I am very excited for is actually getting to explore a new world, and this world sounds like it's gonna feel rather large so it's going to be a lot of fun to climb all of the mountain tops, and explore all the forests, cities as they form, and even the darker underground areas. Add on to it that the game looks like it's going to be gorgeous and that definitely makes exploring even more exciting.

    I'm also really excited about the entire artisan system. I love gathering, and it's going to be interesting to see how limited resources that aren't on a constant respawn loop turns out. Plus I just love making that money money off all my gathered mats.

    Probably the most exciting thing for me tho is to delve into the classes. I love theorycrafting, min/maxing, and finding weird quirks to classes, and I can't wait to play with a whole new class system. Brand new game, no eastern release where tons of people are super far ahead in learning classes because they have dredged through untranslated text. Plus the enormous scope of how many class/augment combinations there is. It's just wonderful to think about.

    I sure you will Shiroe. Just don't forget that between all the strategy games, you also have to check Nyan-san on fleas!

    I would like to be the character that finds something interesting. Whether it is the ore that takes magic better, the temple of a long forgotten god, or the perfect ambush point for a future trade route. Of course the ultimate might be to get a shoutout from the powers that be that i've done something they didn't foresee.

    My main goal is to keep an open mind about the role playing aspect of the game. Normally, I just play mmorogs without immersing myself into the lore, npcs, and quests, but I think for me to truly enjoy this genre once again, I have to actually step into the role playing aspect.

    I for one will be doing crafting (what? I'm a craft-whore D: ) and PvE mostly, but along with my paladin friend we'll dish out plenty of ragequits among players. :D

    Ensab Anur, archanist extraordinaire at your service. Knowledge is my first passion, power will come along nipping at its heels shortly there-after. *sips wine*
    Of course there is always knowledge to be found in the intent studying of forestry, plants and minerals. *drinks wine*
    Then again, perhaps animal husbandry and the study of magical beasts, I'm sure there is quite a bit of wisdom locked away in those pelts. * gulps wine voraciously*
    But alash (hic) it doesh all boil down to power then, yesh.

    Make the game as immersive as possible, and of course be the best :3

    I was thinking about PK... But I have no idea if it's possible... Need to know how PvP works 1v2, 1v3, 1v4. Because if player has no chance to kill two or three players against him, then that's kinda pointless to do it solo :(

    My main reasons for playing MMOs are PvE and Roleplaying.

    So I guess my main reasons work with my main goals. Something like that!
