What's the chat schedule looking like for tomorrow?

Also really hope the Wrestlemania stream holds out. I read somewhere that they were gonna base it on how the HOF stream went. That seems kind of foolish.

Anyways pretty hype for tomorrow, though I feel like I may be expecting too much considering the rumors surrounding Austin, Punk, Sting, etc. I'm probably setting myself up for a huge downfall. Guess we'll find out.

Oh and I'm not sure how legit it is, but it sounds like spoilers for the match winners are out there already. I obviously won't say who wins and won't even hint at anything. Just keep a look out and be warned.

Weird seeing so many people claim to be fans of him, when I'm almost positive people have ragged on him for years. Just how these things work I guess.

@kishinfoulux: Do you have a PS4 because the PS4 beta is this weekend and everyone can play for free up to level 20 and carry over progress to the retail game. Might let you see if you're in the mood to play for free.

Nah I was playing on PC. I'll probably give it a go, within a few days. I'll just have to remember and adjust to things again.

I'm somehow still in the guild so that's good. And are Glamours on a per armor piece basis or is it just a general overall character appearance change? I'm assuming it's like the Mystic in Diablo III.

So I'm guessing I should still be following the same end game path I was supposed to? I think I'm supposed to beat Ifrit and go do one of the harder dungeons (I forget the names, its been awhile). I could've swore I read something to the effect of returning players will be able to gear up quicker so they can get caught up on things, but I don't really know specifics. Thanks for answering also.

Glamours are on a per piece basis, and are divided between different crafting classes/item levels. So, if you wanted to make your Drachen Mail (iLvl 50) look like the Foestriker's Tabard (iLvl 17), you would need to cast a Glamour on the former using a Grade 1 Glamour Prism (Leatherworking). It sounds a bit convoluted, but once you do your first one, the system will immediately click.

The relic quest chain you're talking about is still the same (beat Chimera, Amdapor Keep, mobs, Hydra and the three hard mode primals). As far as endgame gear is concerned, they've removed the Allagan Tomestones of Philosophy and removed the cap for Allagan Tomestones of Mythology, meaning that the path from iLvl 50 to iLvl90 is much quicker than pre-2.2. Additionally, you can also run through Crystal Tower to get iLvl 80 gear, but hardly anyone does it these days and it's often full of people trolling the raid.

So what happens to any Tomes of Philosophy you had? Just gone completely or converted into Mythology Tomes? There was an NPC in one of the towns that you traded those to for some kind of gear, if I'm remembering correctly right? I'm guessing that's still a thing.

@nodima: Nick was an intern?

And yeah, first Max and now Adam... Rev3 has lost a lot of its draw for me recently.

Yeah Max leaving was a bummer, but at least Adam was there. Now he's gone too. I like Tara, but not enough to really give a damn anymore. They need to get some new talent ASAP. Max ended up going back to D-Toid too, which makes me wonder if something is going on there.

Anyways best of luck to him.

So I played around launch time and had an awesome time. Unlike a lot of MMO players I enjoy the journey to the end game and don't just rush it. I took my time and enjoyed it. That's probably also because I'm not really a hardcore MMO player either so I'm a bit of a casual when it comes to the genre, in some respects. Anyways I got to the point where my characters (a Lancer/Dragoon) reached max level and made some headway into my Relic weapon quest. If I recall I believe the last thing I was doing was trying to defeat Ifrit (I guess a harder version?) to get a new weapon or something. I didn't make much of a dent, if at all, into the end game. Partly because it sort of intimidates me and also because there's just so much to it.

So patches 2.1 and 2.2 have come and been implemented now. I've gotten the hankering to jump back into things. Thing is jumping back into a game like this, after such a long break, is a bit of a daunting prospect. It also doesn't help that I'm obviously going to be waaaaay behind the curve at this point and really have no idea what I should be doing.

So I ask of you, what are the important changes and whatnot that I should be aware of if I jump back in? Are things different now? Should I be taking a different path for the end game? I feel like if I jump in, without asking a bit first, I'm just going to be completely lost. I'm also worried about how many people will be doing older content, that I have to be caught up on.

I've skimmed some of it and saw things like "Echos" and "Glamours" and whatnot as well. Basically the TL:DR version is: What do I need to know/do to get caught up to where people are at now and what are the important changes I should be aware of?

***edit***

Also forgot. Is there no way to get a full years subscription? I notice you can only get up to 180 days.

triple h needlessly buried fandango and then he showed a video package burying basically everyone and it was awesome? what is happening where am i

I thought it was fucking awful. I know Trips thinks he's cute by poking fun at the reality of him actually burying peoples careers, which is a scumbag act in of itself, but it's really not. It just illustrates that what everyone says about him is true. He's not the wrestling god in the ring or mic that he thinks he is and held down others that were. He IS only where he is because of his marriage and I'm sure deep down he knows it. In his deluded dream world he thinks himself among the GOAT's. He'd be wrong, in every single facet. You're not a good wrestler, you're not as good on the mic as you think you are, you aren't some masterful heel, etc. Your wife is no better. Hell most people only like her because they, for whatever reason, think she's hot. When people say she's good a promo I die on the inside. That's an insult to the people that actually ARE good at speaking. She isn't one of them.

The cherry on top is that Vince lets him get away with it. He's no dummy. He'd be wise to bring the hammer down, but I guess he's content with letting those two cancers ruin his business.

Saw this a few days ago. Was LOL'ing the whole way through. Also strike weapons are too fucking OP.
