Warhammer Online: Age Of Reckoning Discussed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Warhammer Vault has posted a new interview with Andy Belford, Community Coordinator for Mythic Entertainment, about the fantasy themed MMO, Warhammer: Online. Belford discussed a variety of topics including patches, gameplay, classes, and gear.

Warhammer Online features Realm vs Realm combat and allows players to enter a grim fantasy world where the armies of Order (Dwarves, High Elves, and Empire) and Destruction (Greenskins, Dark Elves, and Chaos) collide to determine the fate of nations.

Dunes: "The 1.3 patch cycle has had a monumental effect on the game's gameplay. Between performance issues being addressed, mass changes to T4 and the Capital City changes and much do you feel the patch cycle has been going? Good? Could be better? Something you wish you could have done but didn't have the time?"
Andy: "Overall, we’re pleased with how the 1.3.x patch cycle has progressed. We’ve seen some great changes and addressed several long running issues, especially with performance and stability. We’ve added great features and made some much needed Combat and Careers adjustments. That’s not to say that it’s been without missteps, but the results of 1.3.x have been much more positive than negative."

Dunes: "When we can expect the new (graphically updated) sets?"
Andy: "We received a pretty varied response on the armor art changes. Some were positive, some negative. Based on that, we’ve decided that we want to make changing the art on the armor sets an option rather than automatic. Right now we’re working on figure out the best implementation of a system to give players the option."

Dunes: "How do you feel the endless free trial has gone so far? Have you seen a large return of players coming back to enjoy T1 and this offer?"
Andy: "The response to the WAR Endless Free Trial has been outstanding. Players, both new and returning are coming out and having a great time on the Festenplatz. We saw an uptick in new Endless Trial users in December and players are excited over the level of GM interaction in the new player guilds (kudos to our amazing Customer Service team for providing this great service to our New Player Guild members.)"

Dunes: "Will the level cap ever be raised?"
Andy: "That's certainly something we've discussed."
