After not really playing that much during the free first month (kind of stupid, but I really didn’t feel like gaming so much x_x), I decided to buy another month of game time and give it a more serious try this time. And it’s a whole lot more fun! Might have something to do that I switched factions and characters, because being on the Dominion side just made me feel sick sometimes. Not really what I want from playing a game. ._.
The other reason probably is that I started off as a Mechari in the beginning, the race I was most interested in when looking at the available options for the first time and also why I chose that faction at first. Normally I’m never someone to choose the bad side because it’s just not my nature. Once again it proves that I don’t feel at home there.
The awesome thing about the Mechari is their insect-like look that somewhat reminds me of the Qiraji in World of Warcraft – that’s also the reason why my Mechari got the name Zarivess (if other signs than letters were allowed in naming, she would have been Zari’vess). But the downside of this race is that I absolutely hate their feet and the way they move – their running animation looks somewhat derpy and comical. Since it’s really important for me to feel ‘in tune’ with a character, that kind of ruined the whole experience for me. So I let it slide and didn’t really get to know much of the game before the first month of game time expired.
For the new start, I decided to let Zarivess go.
She’s awesome and I love that green thing on her head, but something else was needed to keep me interested, and I decided to give the opposing faction a try – the Exiles.
So now I’m off to a great new start – new character, new race, new class. And I’m having a lot of fun already! 🙂
