WoW or EVE - Page 9

post #81 of 156
I haven't had any problems like that.

I had one problem where the warp graphics were showing up really strong and weird for some reason, but I blame my constant alt/tabbing + running the game for a good 9 hours straight.

If one were to start playing EVE... where is a good place to learn the tricks... I have read the site.. and as with wow... it does not give you a good idea on what race to pick and what the advantages are with each thing.

I am looking for any information that will help me decide on if I am going to pick up this game.

Take the trial, read the charachter screen and do the tutorial.

Like most MMOs, how you set up your char depends on what you want to do.
You can be a good buisnessperson, a leader, a fighter, a smart engineer type, a corporate worker.
I went with Caldari Achura for missile capability and Blueprint manufacturing, which i ended up not doing.
Most likely the first person you set up will not be what you want in the long run so dont feel afraid to start again once you explore the game a bit.

Also, the tutorial isnt as helpful as having a friend just explain it to you. You can pick it up in a few hours that way or spend a whole day on the tutorial. Plus a friend can loan you 500,000ISK to get you started.

I don't know last time you did the tutorial, but they changed it. It only takes an hour or two, tops.

Also, how you choose your character isn't so important, and everything you need to know is listed in the descriptions for each in the character creation.
You don't pick a class, you can do anything at any time, all you have to do is train the skills. Your starting skills aren't so important except to help you get started. After that you can train whatever you want and completely change what your character is best at, if you wanted to.

Caldari - Hybrid weapons, missile whores , tank shields
Gallente - Hybrid weapons, Drone whores , tank armor
Amarr - Energy weapons, lots of grid and maybe cap, tank armor
Minmatar - Projectile weapons, speed demons, tank shields

There are a couple ships that could tank either or, but for the most part thats what you will be using for each class's ship. Also, your not limited to just those weapons for that class, although you need the skills for it.

Woo hoo! Just got into my Myrmi not too long ago

Sexy BEAST!

EDIT: Can anyone else connect to the server? Says something about proxy and sol?
EDIT2: Nvm... SQL database failed on them, back up now.

what is the various benefits / drawbacks to choosing the races?
post #89 of 156
only thing to look at is the attributes: Intelligence and Memory for everything not combat related. Perception and willpower for everything combat related. Charisma for trade and leadership.
Gallente tend to have more non-combat related attribute points, Caldari combat related.
I don't know about Minmattar and Amarr tough...
