F2P … Hahaha …
Crap! Crap! Is he still there? NO! Don’t look at him! Just nod or something … okay, he’s still there? That wolf’s been following me for the … yeah, he’s my companion. I made it until login the third day and then I HAD to spend money to get a companion, just had to. But I mean you’ve got to admit she looks scared to death.
I think I made some terrible, wrong, choices at the character creation screen. Either that or a Half-Elf is supposed to look that way. I’ll have to look into it. Maybe she’ll throw the bad guys off with that look, they’ll think she’s easy pickings and underestimate her, yeah, could work out okay.
So I’ve been having a good time trying to figure out what’s going on. I imagine at some point I’ll have to spent oodles to respec the mess I’m probably making. Got to level ten and got access to professions so I’ve been logging in and out making stuff and then I occasionally go kill some bad guys.
I saw people running around with what looked like maybe Hunter pets, investigated and found you could have a fighting companion. I must have one! I told myself it was only fair to plunk down some real money since I was having fun with their game, but really I don’t think it was that I was feeling altruistic towards Cryptic, I really just wanted a wolf to run around with.
Yeah, I’m a F2P sucker. The word will probably get out. HERE SHE COMES! Break out the pets! She falls for it every time! I’m not big on spending money on clothes for standing around town but I’m hell on those pets.
Neverwinter’s most interesting feature to me so far is The Foundry. Player-created content. Have you ever thought you could have made a better quest? Here’s your chance. I’ve done one Foundry quest so far, it was excellent. One of my pet peeves in games are those quests where you stand there scratching your head wondering what to do next, I’m looking at you scenarios. The player-authored quest I did flowed smoothly, was engaging and yay, loot!
It’s like I’m on summer vacation! Anyway, time to get back to Azeroth and once again assault the denizens of Serpentshrine Cavern. So far Morogrim Tidewalker refuses to hand over that pet and Lady Vashj? I can’t get past three tainted cores. Maybe the eleventy hundredth time will be the charm!
