New Site - PLEASE READ

Hello All,
My name is Ashley and I am the one that moved the forum to its new hosting location. This was done for security reasons and try to keep the forum from going down every other day. I understand that the new forum looks very different from the old one but I promise almost everything you had before you still have it might just be in a different place.

Items that are gone due to a limitation of the new hosting/ forum update:
- Awards
- Flags

As I was going thought your posts I was able to fix a lot fo the issues you were listing. Below is kind of a running list of issues an what is fixed and what I am still working on.

Items that I have fixed from your comments:
- Smilie are now working.
- Color/Theme changes
- Signature are now showing up. (Here is how to edit them https://screencast.com/t/OJHzzhiV1)
- Ranking is now showing up.
- Private messaging is now working.

Some issues I am still working on are:
- Missing items from the Calendar
- Like button the posts is giving an error.

One other note I have seen a lot is theme/color related items. I know this is important to all of you but at the moment the most important thing was getting you back a functioning forum with as many features I can get you back from before.

Theme/color is something we can change but it the moment I do not have the time and resources to fix all of the issue and design the site. I did do some theme updates yesterday but it is very time consuming. Please just be patient with the forum as we get it back to as close as I can to what you had before.

If anyone has any issues that they are running in to please let me know in the post below. Please give me as much detail as possible .

    Welcome back.

    I endeavor to present material which, in some manner, is different from what has come before. Over the last couple of days I found myself fortunate enough to be presented with just such an opportunity.

    Swordmasters are unique breed. Ok, sure, I am a bit biased, as the class has always been my most favorite and cherished with which to take the field of battle. Since inception I have found the rotation mechanic engaging and fun, the inherent challenge to craft a sequence of attacks which will prove effective against most opponents. Not that you will always prevail, of course, but winning a battle as a Swordmaster has always, to me at least, constituted a expression of art as well as form, resulting in a subtle object of beauty.

    Witch Hunters and Witch Elves benefit from this same phenomena, however given the class mechanics painting their art can often be a bit more...uncomplicated. No offense, but Swordmaster play can often be defined as much by what abilities you don't have as opposed to those you do. Swordmasters are an in-your-face class, their play characterized by the need create an opportunity to grapple with the enemy and hold them, until one or the other of you is dead. Escape is rarely a viable option. And the truth is, I wouldn't have it any other way.

    We also tend to be rare. Which brings me to this video.

    Presented here are six scenarios all sharing one commonality, in that each features at least four or more Swordmasters in play. Three of the proffered engagements feature a six Swordmaster force structure, an manifestation which, at least in my experience, is almost as rare as a slow Shammy sighting. Given the plethora of fellow Defenders of the Everqueen who materialized for these fights, I thought them worth both recording and presenting for the viewing pleasure of the membership at large.

    Oh, and there were some other guys along as well.

    Segment One features a battle in Stonetroll Crossing, featuring I, your humble narrator, accompanied by fellow Swordmasters Ralphael, Taipanic, and Tianming. Also present were Dwarves extraordinaire Arthur Arnbitter and Krunched. I always love it when Arthur shows up.

    Segment Two features another struggle for Stonetroll Crossing featuring fellow Swordmasters Ralphael, Tiapanic, Tianming, and Celegion.

    Segment Three features a fight to dominate Howling Gorge featuring fellow Swordmasters Ralphael, Malulabar, Angel, and Tianming. Also present were the man, the myth, the legend Zaxxed and the hyper-active Mspuddin.

    Segment Four features yet another fight in Stonetroll Crossing featuring fellow Swordmasters Celegion, Tianming, Angel, Fuuki, and Malulabar. Zaxxed and Mspudding make additional cameos.

    Segment Five features a romp in Howling Gorge along side fellow Swordmasters Angel, Malulabar, Taipanic, Tianming, and Ralphael. A Warrior Priest of few words, Xtz, helps keep us all alive.

    Segment Six features an energetic fight in the Battle For Praag, featuring fellow Swordmasters Kytula, Mrgod, Radikal, Taipanic, and Yncarne. The Dark Horse was a Shadow Warrior named Skalier. Excellent damage output.

    All individual scenarios are separated by fades to black. Additional edits account only for respawn timers.

    Music selections follow the order of the individual scenarios.

      A couple of months or so ago someone began a thread featuring screenshots taken from various locations around the Warhammer world. I thought that well done, and enjoyed the results. As a consequence of that thread I considered undertaking a like effort, only employing video. And so I have.

      This video features no combat of any sort. It is a composite of short segments featuring staged captures of landscapes, vistas, and creatures scattered around the Warhammer world. Video postcards, if you will.

      Someday this war is going to end, as all things do. I thought a visual memory worth preserving.

      Featured music is from the following sources.

      Worakls - "Blue" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_y9-tBQ0anQ

      Worakls - Salzburg https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_tTber0f8qc

      Klangomad - "I Am What I Am," featuring Asaf Avidan's "Is This It" and Peer Kusiv's "Someone Told Me."

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9q2h6oGD6UA&t

      Again my gratitude to all of the Devs, GM's, and all others who keep this game alive. Respects to all of you, my fellow players. And as always, thanks for watching.

        Recorded over a period of time from November 2017 to January 2018.

        Welcome back. One of the aspects I love about this game is the strategy inherent in achieving, or at least in the attempt to increase your chances to achieve, victory over the enemy. Note I am not speaking to renown builds, gear builds, and/or skill rotations. I am talking about the more esoteric endeavor most appropriately categorized as how to create, manipulate, initiate, and influence the fight via alternative factors.

        There are actions one can take, strategies and tactics one can employ in game, whether attached to a group or running solo which can and often will help tip the combat equation in your favor. There are other players who know this, I see them out and about on occasion. They are the warband leaders who understand the use of terrain, and thus know to deploy their forces in locations favorable to an ambush, a defense, or a general attack. They are the group players who understand the use of, and have the patience for, hide positions. And they are the solo players who understand in order to isolate and create the fights you desire, time, terrain, and most important of all patience, are your best friends.

        Again, I make no claim to be the best in this game at anything. But I do know how to hunt. In addition I know how to read a scenario and apply, however best I can, tactics to help increase the chance and opportunity for my side to win.

        That is the essence of this video, a simple attempt, for whatever it may be worth, to illustrate some of those tactics. As always I appreciate all who watch, for whatever reason. However in the case of this particular offering my endeavor was to create what I hoped would prove a useful training video. In that spirit take from it what you will. Or take nothing. All of you are intelligent people, but on occasion I have learned a trick or two from watching the play of others so perhaps the reverse may also prove true. Irregardless of applicability, ultimately I am just someone who enjoys playing this game.

        Fight sequences run the typical gamut. A complete time-index listing for all fights, to include those fighting along with me combined with a few appropriate associated details, may be found below.

        Featured music attached to individual segments as follows:

          Welcome back.

          As I have stated prior on multiple occasions one of the primary reasons I began posting my videos and then later crafting them into themed events was to promote not only the game but those who played it. Over time I have published videos specifically recorded to feature and named for particular players, principally Indacut, Tion Black, and Dansaran. A few other videos followed that pattern, with a specific series recorded solely for and dedicated to the Bitterstone Thunderers. Those were fun times.

          Recently I realized a significant period of time had passed since I last crafted a video materially designed to feature and promote one specific Return of Reckoning superstar. Other than me, of course. "Swords of the Everqueen" approximated that goal, but was class-centric on Swordmasters as opposed to any individual. Therefore over the last few weeks I have been attempting to capture in game footage which, as best as possible, is hallmarked by the play of another. This video is the first result, and I hope you all enjoy.

          The video incorporates combat captures from four different scenarios. The second scenario featured was by far the most fun, however all were engaging and ultimately rewarding. To fully appreciate why I included footage from the forth scenario please read the scenario chat during the period we are all just standing around.

          This is a great game, with some great players in it. My continued appreciation to all involved, and please enjoy my latest attempt to promote our communal guilty pleasure.

            Anyone who has or may be thinking of signing up to play this game, I suggest a quick look at this video. Pay particular attention to the White Lions. It is fun class to play, good damage output, and you get to leap through air to smash people with your battle-axe.

            I recorded this video to highlight the four White Lions participating in this SC.

              Welcome back.

              Before the frivolous matter of my next video offering your indulgence please concerning another issue. As a former school teacher my heart breaks in regard to the recent events in Florida. Unfortunately, I know and understand only too well the feelings associated with losing a student as the direct result of senseless violence. Therefore my deepest sympathies for all who suffered loss in the wake of this horrific event.

              In game related news I am still unable to log into my account. Wargrimner has been helping, but to date nothing attempted has rectified the problem. The issue must be a file corruption of some kind but one so specific as to be elusive in regard to the standard remedies. I will get back in at some point, even if I have to go out and buy another computer.

              In the meantime:

              I am rather fond of this video, especially given the manner in which it formed. Some of the individual footage seemed made to order, the opening sequence particularly, and lent itself well to the finished product. Video editing isn't hard, but it can prove rather tedious and time consuming. The subject matter, of course, often serves to offset such concerns, and such was the case here. Not since "Looking Glass House" have I had so much fun just editing a video together. The total content I originally planned to include eventually had to be reduced in deference to time concerns. Hang in there Weedhala, in a few days I will publish your efforts as a stand-alone offering.

              I met Angela Mao once. In regard to the film industry in the Orient she was a break-through star, the first woman to be featured in lead or lead supporting roles in Chinese history. But she didn't much care for the fame. When I told her I was a fan of her movies her only response was to smile slightly and nod her head. All of Hollywood could take a lesson. For those who may not be aware of Angela Mao and her film history, she is featured in two of the transition segments of this video.

              As always a complete time index listing for all fights is included below. Respects to my worthy opponents, with a particular nod to TheOddOne. Kitana went this way...one can smell her perfume.

              In addition the final segment featured I included solely for my in-game friend Celegion. Hopefully he will appreciate the message.

              Music segments feature the work of the artist listed below. As always all music remains the property of the individual owners and is used for entertainment purposes only. Cast in order of appearance:

              Combat Segment Five: DJ NightStar, from Progressive Trance Mix 2016 Light & Love. A couple of notes here. As some of you will recognize I have utilized bits from this set in prior efforts, but given back then I was recording both audio and video simultaneously I was never able to give the opening segment of this particular mix the justice I thought it deserved. Given a few videos back I separated those efforts I now can, and have. Additionally, if any of you ever watch the video associated with some of NightStar's work, specifically this one, know I used to be one of those people you see dancing around half-naked in the middle of the desert with a drink in their hand. Then I grew up. But I still like the music.

                Hello again and sincere felicitations and appreciations to all who peruse this post.

                As you all know my play style tends to favor solo roaming, but every now and then I manage to secure a slot in a roving warband or an invitation to join a pre-made six-man group. This video highlights just such an occasion, an opportunity I enjoyed to participate in Scenario and open RvR action with a group of exceptional players. In actuality we only ran together for about an hour, but during that time we managed to make what I considered a memorable impression.

                The video below features me, your humble narrator, endeavoring to assist five deserving Order players. We hooked up in Discord, did a few SC's, ran around Kadrin Valley for awhile, all while generally harassing the enemy and having fun. I hope to prosper from additional future associations with these individuals, as the experience constituted one of the more enjoyable sixty minute periods of game time I have invested since the Mortal Combat tournament.

                I have a White Lion character named Zaratiel. While editing this video I thought geez, perhaps I should spend more time player her. Put her in Zaxxond's new guild. Yeah, thats the ticket...

                The players primarily featured here include Hellokitty, Catfood, Martillo, Maybell, and Norsemanherra. White Lion players still leveling up may want to watch this video for an idea of how well the class performs. Warrior Priest players still leveling up may want to watch this video for the same reason. These two particular Warrior Priest were again, exceptional in their ability to keep us on our feet. Of course given the design inherent with any video recording program my fellow group mates are not always on screen, and on one occasion I did revert to my old habits and went chasing after the bomb carrier headed for Talebec Dam. However my group-mates are omnipresent, and certainly on screen long enough to effectively showcase their talents. My respects to them all, and of course our worthy opponents.

                  I made this video primarily as a promotional tool for both the game and the guild to which I belong. Consequently the opening seven minutes are unique, and alone worth watching. At least in my opinion. If you do watch please let me know what you think.

                  The descriptive verbiage which follows mirrors that posted on the Warhammer Forums.

                  -------------------------------------------------------------------

                  The primary reason for becoming involved in any game is to have fun.

                  The opening segment for this video is a bit outside the norm for a variety of reasons, but it isn't designed to make fun of anyone. It is designed to be humorous, if you get the joke. I have been told my humor tends to be subtle, an assertion which is accurate. But it is humor none the less.

                  What follows constitutes both a promotional video for and a tribute video to my fellow guild members. Since joining Zaxxed I have enjoyed more than a few opportunities to hack and smash on the enemy while supported by a cadre of good, effective players. It has been fun, and for those of you out there longing to enjoy the benefits of participating in pre-made groups, consider signing up.

                  The introduction segment of this offering highlights the history of Warhammer leading to my joining Zaxxed...in a...comical...manner. Following that the battle sequences featured comprise the standard fare of roaming for fights and slugging it out in various scenarios. A complete time index listing for all fights is, as usual, posted below.

                  As always respect to our worthy opponents and to all of you for watching. Special thanks to the "Winter is Coming" crowd, without whom portions of this video would not have been possible.

                    Welcome back.

                    I have decided to take my videos in a new direction, in regard to a couple of what I feel to be appropriate reasons.

                    The montage videos were fun to craft and I always attempted to render them entertaining by applying a unifying theme throughout. However my thought is they may have become repetitive, and thus boring. While constructing the recruiting video for Zaxxed, this idea was born, a series of video scenario guides designed in a humble attempt to continue serving the purpose of promoting the server and in the additional hope they may prove useful to some within the player base.

                    These videos were not constructed in the belief I know everything there is to know about Warhammer Online. They were constructed in the belief I know, via experience and intuition, some measure of viable and relevant information. Others have, I am aware, crafted written scenario guides. However as a retired school teacher I am also aware that reading is often an endeavor many will pass on if offered an alternative. And here we are.

                    At the time of this posting I have completed eight of these video guides and am working on the ninth. Please feel free to leave feedback or commentary either here or on our Youtube page. Discussion is welcome, if any are so inclined.

                    Once this project is complete I may diversify again, as I have been asked specifically to craft a video dealing with stratigies in combating a particular class of Destruction opponent. I may do that, depending on how well these efforts are received.

                    How does one get to Carnegie Hall?

                            If you have to watch one video today, make it Avengers Infinity Wars.

                            However, if you watch two videos today...

                            The missing Episode Eleven, dedicated to the pawn sacrifice which is Talebec Dam.

                            Introduction background music entitled the Danse Macabre, accredited to Camille Saint-SaŽns.

                              I have done a few more of these because producing them is fun and is far more beneficial to my health than arguing politics.

                              Maw of Madness, which is truthfully an SC I despise but a video I had great fun editing together:



                              Doomfist Crater, an episode which addresses more than just the Scenario:
