Artiee tries to Adopt

Carrie from Mythic sent via Twitter a Code for a Present for a WAR Player. Well I just happen to open my browser when I saw the message pop up. So I quickly went to the Account Center.. Copied and Pasted the code into account and clicked clicked clicked clicked. Just briefly scanning it the page. I learned before you have to click quickly.. I once had a code, I was on the last confirm screen and lost it because I didnt knowed the last confirm.

Well what I got was the Heald Pet Pack.. When I logged on to Iron Rock, I checked my mail and got Adoption papers.

Is it wise for me to Adopt?

When I look at the Adoption papers, I find out its a Snotling. Hmmm a snotling.. I could use it for punting practice.

A Snotling!!!

When I went to Adopt the snotling, I looked and look for the merchant.. I think the merchant hasn’t arrived in Altdorf yet. The Adoption instuctions are confusing. The mail letter said a merchant by the Library.. But the Adoption papers says the stablemaster. Hmmmm. No biggy yet.

The Pet Pack is one of the items that Mythic said would be in the new Feature Packs coming soon. As soon as I’m able to adopt I’ll post my new pet.

Artiee visits the barber.

We know one of the future additions to WAR is the ability to change your appearance. I beleve this is a RL dollar transaction. You buy it off EA Store and then you get a token in game mail. This is only speculation.

There is a preview of the Barber’s on PTS server. So I’m giving you all a sneak preview of the Barber.

Once you have a token, On Order you will need to find the Barber Surgeon, Toddy Sween. Thats a kwel name. One guess where the name comes from. Just look out for the trap door. Toddy Sween is in the Market Square in Altdorf.

Toddy Sween the Barber Surgeon

On Order once you open the barbershop it looks like your sitting in front of a barber mirror. As you can see, atm, you wil be about to change your Face, Hair style, jewerly, hair color, eye color, skin color and jewerly color respectively.

Boy do I need a make over.

On Destro, the barbers name is Karven Nurfayc. Karven is located by the Apex in Inevitable City.  **edit ** HAHAH.. Karven Nurfayc. I get it!!! Funny!

Karven Nurfayc in the Apex

The barber shop atm looks just like Orders.. I hope they make it more destro like.

Only a face a mother can love. (If I had a mother)

Remember is is on PTS.. Its a test server anything can change.

Artiee laughs at Greenskins

While leveling I always started in the Drawf-Greenskin pairing.  Adventuring in the Drawf-Greenskin pairing was always fun.   This pairing has funny jokes going on.

 While running around in Marsh of Madness one day, I was wading in the swamp when I came up to submerge barrels. 

Exploring the Marsh

When I moved closer to them I got a popup about it was a Really Empty Barrel.

Finding a Really Empty Barrel

When I opened the barrel I got a Histroy & Lore Unlock and I learned about Greenskin Stupidity.

Greenskin Stupidity

I can just see greenskins being scared of the ghosts in the marsh, climbing into the barrels and drowning.   LOL

Nordenwatch is an old and fun scenario with lots of places to punt. This is the only scenario that I know of that you can punt someone to get them out of action for a few minutes without having to punt into a area that you can’t get into anyways.

Let’s start at my favorite punting area.

The Fort. This area has several punting areas that will put a player out of combat for a few seconds to a few minutes.

The Order Bridge is a few seconds out of combat. Punt to the center of the map and they can easily run back around to the bridge. Punt to the North (or water side) and they will have to run under the bridge and back around the hill via the fort to get back into combat or they will just run along the cliff and into your back line.. Both distances are about the same time. If you’re really lucky, you may be able to punt them pass the trail and into the water, here they have a nice long swim to Order camp.

On to the other side, (Destro path to the fort). Only one side is an area to take them out of combat for a while. While punting them in the direction of center of the map does help, it doesn’t take them out of combat very long. The edge between the fort wall and slope of the hill is the prime spot. A lot of destro healers seem to like healing from this area.. It does put them away from the front line fighting, but it also puts them into a punting area. If punted correctly, they will miss the lower path and will fly down to the beach. While they run back via the barracks, you can giggle knowing that they are getting sand in their boots.

Giving Shammy a ride to the beach

The Fort wall. This spot is great area for strategic reasons. Most players are linear so they will not see that healer or range dps shooting down on them. But it’s one of the best places to punt from. Any punts off the wall will put that player out of the area for a few minutes. One healer over can be the difference between winning or losing the fort.

Healer about to get a free ride over the edge.

Light House
I think the light house is a nice area to fight. It has a small path around the back of the light house and rocks to the sides for fight off of. This area does have some punting potential, most the punting is to the south, over the small cliff.. While there is a larger funnier cliff to punt off of, it’s harder to get destro over to that area.. If one does fly over, it’s a long swim to get back.

The barracks is fun area until you push to the destro war camp. It’s on a flat area, but there’s buildings to fight among, that’s IMO makes it fun. There no real punting areas to get players out of combat. There is the path from the fort that easy to punt ppl off of. And if get a unlucky punt around the barracks, you can put one of your enemies on top of a building.
