Finally got a chance to check back in on the beta.
I made it through the intro scenario. Success! It was interesting – mostly a zergfest of continuous combat. As I was running at about 3 fps, and also hadn’t hotkeyed all of my abilities, I didn’t do a whole lot of damage and I died a lot. Broke all my armor, in fact, before the end of the scenario. I’m looking forward to seeing this scenario again when the game is live so I am on my own character and I have a better computer.
I made it as far as finding my way to my Class Hall. I won’t spoil it, but it was neat. I have the quest to get my artifact weapon. Then… bugs. The NPC I have to kill to advance the questline is missing. So I am at a standstill until it is fixed.
All in all, doing some fresh questing was a welcome change from standing in my garrison.
