    Its fun seeing fresh real estate/ new content. although i've spent most of my time leveling up my third character just because i enjoy campaign mode. did spend about 1/2 hour exploring southern pier on world tier 1 tonite. lots of gold loot drops, nothing extraordinary.

    So from my wanderings, I've found it's a tough world out there. They are definitely harder than the old map areas which is a nice change. I still haven't gone far in the new area. There's three new blocks. If you see a mob and kill them, a new mob might spawn in if you stand around for a minute and they will already be alerted to your presence. Mob's are really spread out, too. Many times, encircling you if you're not paying attention and doing a 360 scan when the screen lags as they spawn in. There are also mini-missions which pop up automatically. I think it's nice for groups who can't decide what to do. I'm sorta holding off exploring too much till I get a group together. The fell is a lot more like the DZ. The PvE looks interesting too.

    I think most of us, other than Dave are behind by atleast one or three updates. My build is 1.6 still and was hosed with 1.7 so I’ve got to get all new gear as well. We just need to get a group together and sweep through the new zones and do HVT’s.

    Ugh, the servers have been lagging hard. It's completely unacceptable to have a FPS slideshow where the NPC's are warping around you. This is made worse when the NPC's are surrounding you.

    I got a Delta error the day before. More than a year out and people are still getting Delta errors! I think there's a large wave of people coming back and for a good reason. The additions make it fun again. Though I think it's probably more fun as a group. Solo'ing can get you dead once a swarm is alerted and you have a weak build.

    Someone on the chat was bragging they got to level 80.



    Darren and I played a few hours last night rolling around the new area. I think we covered most of it. We got rolled over a few times but overall it was more fun than the regular open world. Seems NPC's scale up when more people play. I think I was seeing 5 per cluster but when we were playing it seemed like there were maybe 8. I recommend not running around too much. Looks like if you take a group out and encounter another group they will be immediately alerted to your presence.

    Darren, Dave and I played some Resistance. Darren and I fumbled around and tried not to die while Dave yelled at us. I'm still forgetting what buttons does what and I'm sure Darren is in the same boat. Actually be might be the Captain. I think we made it to Level 15. The second time was a scrub at 11, I think. It's fun but it really you have to have your get sets in order and Optimized. I have a lot of Enemy Armor Damage rolled into all of my gear and it seems to help a lot. Problem I had with Resistance was running out of ammo. I never really picked up the credits but did a lot of the killing. Running Alpha Bridge is a real handicap if you're not pickup up credits.
