    Which Faction to choose for PvE.

    Choosing your Faction for PvE is the most important thing in this game, Each Faction has a differnt playstyle and Differnt Advantages / Disadvantages in PvE or PvP. This Topic will hopefully help you decide which Factionto play. There are 4 basic Factions in the game . Green(Nature) Red(Fire) Purple(Shadow) Blue(Ice) Each of those Colors plays differnt then each other. There are also Factions which require orbs of two differnt basic Factions. Twilight Cards use Fire and Nature. Lost Cards use Frost and Shadow. Stoneking Cards use Frost and Nature. Bandit Cards use Fire and Purple. Green/Nature Nature is probably the easiest thing to learn in PvE and I personally recommend Nature to every person who wants to start out with PvE. Nature focuses on healing , crowd control abilitys and a little bit on indirect damage. Healing cards are used for keeping your and maybe your teammates units healthy and can turn the battle in your favor.Examples for Healing cards would be:Shaman , Ray of Light and Surge of Light. Crowd Controling cards are used to control the Enemy in someway or another. Rooting Enemys to the ground , or transforming Enemies into stuff that cant attack.. Examples for Crowd Controling cards would be: Dryad , Curse of Oink and Ensaring Roots. Indirect Damage dealing cards dont follow the casual rules of "Deals extra damage against type X unit" but deal their regulare damage against all kinds of Enemies . Examples for cards like these would be : Spirit Hunter , Envenom , Windweaver. Red/Fire Fire is fairly aggressive , obviously most of the cards support that idea. Other then that , Fire has some really unique units that help with the aggression. "Unique" cards for Fire inclue: Global Warming (A Spell that melts Ice shields , isnt really good tho.) Sunderer, a Tier 1 Large unit. Fire Dancer , the unit with one of the biggest Attack Ranges in the Entire game. Disenchant , A spell which removes all buffs from an enemy , or debuffs of a Friendly unit. Earthshaker , a spell that focuses on taking down buildings. Purple/Shadow Shadow cards focus on Sacrificing your own Units to get some sort of benefit, using corpses to benefit themselves, and some teleportation. Some cards that work by sacraficing would be: Motivate , by sacraficing a unit using this card , all other units of the same card deal 50% more dmg. Forsaken have an ability which makes them deal more dmg for some time , but afterwards they die. Decomposer is a building which you can use to kill one of your own units , the benefit of this is that you get 30% of their Manacost into your Manapool , and the other 70% go back into the Voidenergy. Some cards that benefig from corpses are: Embalmer´s Shrine , a building which you can activate to incraese the Value of corpses by 70%. Shadow Phoenix , a flying unit which suicides into the target , and revives it self if enough corpses are around. Necroblaster , a turret which attacks by absorbing corpses. Some cards involving Teleportation would be: Portal Nexus , a building which can build a teleport station near one of your ground units, after the station is placed units can teleport between the nexus and the Station. Phase Tower , a turret which you can teleport to another location nearby. Nether Warp , a spell which creates a temporary one way Portal to a place within a certain Range. Blue/Ice Ice cards focus on using Ice Shields , Freezing enemies and Buildings(Every race has buildings , but Frost has more cards that Synergyize with them) Some cards that use Ice Shields would be: Shield Building , which gives a temporary Ice Shield to a building. Avatar of Frost , which gives itself an Ice Shield every 15 second. Area Ice Shield , which gives up to 3 friendly units within the Area a temporary Ice Shield. Some cards that involve Freezing/Frozen enemies would be: Cold Snap , which freezes up to 5 enemies for 15 seconds. Maelstrom , an aoe Dmg spell which also freezes enemies within its range after some time. Northland Drake , which has an Aoe ability which deals extra damage to frozen units. Soome Cards that Involve Buildings would be: Wardens Sigil , a building which can give an Ice Shield to other buildings. Kobold Trick , a spell which repairs buildings. Construction hut , which makes every building in its range be build faster and cost less mana. A Special card I wanna mention would be Juice Tank , a building which basicly makes energy wells within a certain range 40% more mana. Red/Green Twilight. Twilight ground units have the Abiltiy transforming into other Twilight units for which you meet the Orb requirements , some cards involving this would be: Twilight Air units: The units can grant any of your ground units the Twilight Curse , making them able to transform. Vileblood , a unit that if transformed releases a liquid , which either heals friendlys , or damages enemies depending on the affinity of the card.Mutating Frenzy , a unit which if transformed triggers a hex , which makes enemy units unable to be healed , and depending on the affinity of the card , makes the enemy units unable to be buffed or use their Abilitys Green/Blue Stonekin Stonekin units ALL take less damage , and some of them Benefit from having friendly units nearby , or benefit friendly units nearby. Some cards involving that would be: Grinder which regenerates HP depending on the amount of friendly units nearby. Earthkeeper , which has an ability that reduces the damage one of your units takes , and shares this damage between all Stonekin units nearby. Blue/Purple Lost Souls Lost Units all have the Ability to ressurect themselves after death for some time. Other then that , most of them have the same advantages Shadow and Frost cards have in some way , for example : Lost Wanderer can create an Ice shield. Lost Reaver absorbs energy from Corpses and if enough is absorbed , it can temporarly summon some creatures. Purple/Red Bandits. Most bandit units have lifesteal , which adds a certain % of the damage they dealt back to their HP. Other then that , Bandits share alot of stuff with Fire and Shadow cards, for example: Warriors Death , a spell that buffs a unit , which makes it immune to most debuffs , depending on affinity makes it deal 50% dmg or take 50% less damage , but after the duration is over it dies. Tortugun , a unit that needs to eat your own units , and if it doesnt get fed , it will run amok and feat on units until it has eaten enough. Windhunter , a unit which can take buffs from Enemies , or debuffs from friendlys depending on affinity. Tiers There are 4 Stages of the game , Tier 1 , Tier 2 , Tier 3 and Tier 4. The Tier you are in depends on the amount of Orbs you grabbed. Depending on the current tier the Colors have Strenghts and Weaknesses Here is a list with in my opinion good cards for the Tiers depending on the Colors. Monocolored Factions Fire T1 Probably Stongest Attacking force in T1 , Good aoe Dmg with Eruption , but defending isnt as easy as the other Factions Mine:It's cheap, does nice damage, and knocks back small units Sunderer a Tier 1 Melee LARGE unit. Fire T2 Strongest Siege on T2 with Firedancers. Good Aoe with Lavafield Fire T3 Juggernaut and Magma Hurler both are Very strong T3 Unites Fire T4 Good Units in Form of Fire Worm and Fire Dragon , and a Long Range AOE building inform of a Magma Catcher. Frost T1 Probably best Defnsive T1. Units are Very cheep compared to the other Factions.Frost Mage , a unit that knocks back small units. Home Soil which makes all units nearby a friendly building deal 40% more dmg , to use that offensivly you can use the card Ice barrier. Frost T2 Aoe Freeze in form of Coldsnap, Good Flyer in form of War eagle . Awsome Tier Unit in Form of Lyrish Knight. Frost T3 Access to Avatar of Frost , one of the Strongest T3 Units. Decent Flyers in form of the Northland Drake. Frost T4 One of the Weaker T4s Stronger Units Include Dreadnought , BattleShips and Constructs. Nature T1 Strong Archers in form of Windweavers which attack 2 targets at once. . Healing unit in form of Shamans. T1 Flying Unit in form of Manawing . Healing Spell. Dryad with Frost Affinity , since it reduces the damage taken from your units by 25% Nature T2 Unit with awsome Ability : Deep One. AoE Crowd Control with Curse of Oink. Good Defense with Living towers. Burrower for Sieging. And a Building which decreases the Costs of your units : Breeding Grounds Nature T3 A Strong Standalone unit in form of the Deepcoil Worm. Long Range Attacker with Razorleafs.Good Air with Swamp Drakes. And last but Certainly not least: Wheel of Gifts a Building which buffs all friendly units on the Map. Nature T4 Green has alot of Scary big T4 Units : Grimvine , Collosus , Forest Elder and Giant Wyrm. Shadow T1 Decomposer: A building in which you can Sacrifice a unit to gain 30% of its costs back , the rest of the costs go back into the Void Energy. Forsaken , probably one of the scarier tier 1 Archers because of their Ability , which will make them deal 2x Dmg , but they die afterwards.good T1 Turrets with LifestealTower and Phase Tower. Shadow T2 Strongest Standalone T2 Unit in form of the Harvester.Shadow Phoenix: A Suicide unit , that revives itself if enough corpses are around.Darkelf Assasins: Archers which can immobilse themselves to deal more dmg. Shadow T3 Stanael : a Unit which summons in more Units.Strong AoE with Soulshatter. Good Melee with Mutating Frenzy.Ashebone Pyromancer, A Unit that takes dmg every 2 seconds , but has 30% liifesteal.Utility in form of Fallen Skyelf. Shadow T4 Overlord: A Healer which transfers its own life to allies , but gets Health from Corpses. Very Strong Unit in form of the Shadow Worm. And last but Certainly not least: Rifle Cultists, with an awsome ability. Duo Colored Factions Kepp in mind , that even in multicolored faction decks , you can play Cards which dont require 2 differnt Monuments. For example : Just because you play Twilight , that does not mean that you cant run Cards from Fire or Nature. Fire/Nature Twilight Twilight T1 Not existent , choose either Fire or Nature T1 Twilight T2 A Flying unit in form of Deathgliders which can either Knockback small units , or make units unable to go onto walls. Also acess to the combo Vileblood (red affinity) , letting the enemeys attack it , nearly let it die , cast Curse of Oink on enemies , transform Vileblood into a Slaver. Now Vilebloods ability triggers , dealing dmg and killing both your Slaver and some enemies , the slaver will also now explode dealing extra dmg. Twilight T3 Good melee units in form of:Mutating Maniac and Twilight Creeper, Twilight Hags: Casters which can AoE stun Male units. Twilight T4 Just like Nature , Scary big T4 Units : Abomination , Skycatcher and Nightshade Plant. Also an Aoe Spell in form of Twilight Pestilence , which A: Deals Dmg to enemys , B: Friendly Twilight Units get either healed , or take 50% less dmg. Frost/Shadow Lost Souls Lost T1 Choose either Frost or Shadow T1 Lost T2 With Lost Reaver , Lost Wanderer and Lost Shades definetly one of the Stronger T2. Lost T3 Good defensive Long Range unit in form of Lost Vigil. And a Good tank in Lost Grigori who has a Taunt. Lost T4 With Lost Dragon and Lost Spirit Ship definetly one of the Strongest T4 Flying units. Also a good Melee unit in form of Lost Warlord. Fire/Shadow Bandits Bandit T1 Choose either Fire or Shadow T1 Bandit T2 Good Debuffer/Decurser inform of the Windhunter. Overall decent T2 because all Bandit T2 units have Lifesteal. Bandit T3 Good Air with the Corsair which can either Spawn Commandos or Banditos.A good Melee unit: Soulhunter. Bandit T4 Amok: A Spell which makes every unit in the area attack the unit next to it , even friendlys. Bloodhorn , a melee unit that either can debuff itself , or double its own damage. Frost/Nature Stonekin Stonekin T1 Choose either Nature or Frost T1 Stonekin T2 Agressor: A Good ranged fighter. Crystal Fiend: A Flying Healer. Eathkeeper : A Unit that can Split the Damage between your units. Stonekin T3 Rageflame , Aoe Unit that freezes enemies after attacking for 7 seconds. A good melee unit : Stone Warrior. Stonekin T4 Grinder: Tanky unit with a single target Taunt which regenerates HP based on the amount of Friendly units nearby. Things to consider while deckbuilding.(This is not "How to build a deck" , just some things to consider) First of all : What kind of PvE do you want to play ? rPvE (Randomly generated PvE maps) or regular PvE (Campaign maps)? I recommend everyone to playthrough the campaign atleast once. rPvE rPvE is , playing randomly generated PvE maps either alone or with 1, 2 or 4 players.. Those randomly generated PvE maps can have multiple Enemy types for example Bandits and Stonekins. Since you play on a randomly created enviroment , you cant really prepare for any rPvE maps. I´d personally recommend the guide of fellow user "Treim" : http://forum.bfreborn.com/index.php?/topic/752-treims-battlegroundrpve-speedrun-guide/ He explains alot of stuff concerning rPvE which I couldnt even think about it. Regular PvE (Campaign maps) Reasons to play Campaign: 1.You can farm certain upgrade cards depending on the mission. If you go to this website: http://allcards.bfreborn.com/ , search for a card and hover over it you can see the maps name which you need to complete in order to get the upgrade. The upgrade´s level will depend on the difficulty you play on. Level 1 upgrades on the lowest , Level 2 on the medium , and Level 3 on the highest difficulty setting. Keep in mind tho , that you NEED to apply a Level 1 upgrade before you can apply a Level 2 upgrade. On the topic of Upgrades: If you upgrade a card to Level 1 you can also add charges to it if you own more Cards of the same type. Per level you can add 1 extra card to add charges. 2.The Story , while not the greatest , is definetly not a bad one , so "Stay a while and Listen". 3.The Campagin maps feature differnt sorts of fun (or annoying)gimmicks. First of all , the most important thing about normal PvE maps is the following : In case you loose , you can adjust your deck and try the same map again but with another deck. So there is no reason to feel bad just because you failed , it happens. For example:If you had problem killing a XL sized unit , a Twilight Dragon for example , you should consider getting some cards in your deck just to counter this one thing which gets you stuck. A single card change can make a map alot easier. An example for this would be : The map Crusade on the highest difficulty , once you reach the north , mobs will spawn after some time , there are spawns that only spawn air units , so dont feel ashamed taking an Anti Air turret just for this one place. Things you also might wanna consider: Knowing what your teammates have in their deck can help you in making decisions. So dont feel scared to Ask for their decklist (there is a function when rightclicking the player). For example once one of my friends had a weak T2 but an awsome T3 (for that certain map), letting him take the first 2 Monuments made the map go much faster then it would have in case we both would have taken one monument. Currently it might be the case that its to early for such a thread to exist , but better too soon then never. Also , if I forgot some cards , a topic like this already exists(Couldnt find it in that case) your opinion on which cards to use is other then mine. Feel Free to respond. I bet I forgot a lot of Important stuff , but with your help , we can make this list something good. I´m open for any sort of Criticism and will continue to improve on this topic.

    soundtracks for playing

    "The World ends With you" might be interesting, I really like it. The Fire Emblem series also has great soundtracks. Warcraft 1,2,3 and World of Warcraft also have pretty good soundtracks. Depending on your taste, Pokemon can also be failry relaxing, espacilly the newer ones. But hey, those are some I like, you don't gotta like em.

    What Does "Kevin" Mean? [Poll]

    In english it's just "Home Alone" Anyhow, I personally connect the name Kevin with a multitude of things, ofc the Sterotypical idiot named Kevin, but from my personal experience I've gotta say that most Kevin's I know are insane in one way or the other.

    So the program itself is not the problem. But your usage of it. (How the hell is one active on 21 discord servers anyhow? I'm on 2 rn o.o)

    How the hell does Discord cause any RAM issues? 4GB ram here and Discord runs smooth and doesn't decrease my performance at all. It's really, really lightweight.

    [Strategy Game] Conquer Lyr (Recruiting)

    @Clusterwink the host of this game hasn't been online since September 14, 2016 I kinda doubt that this game will start. The only way I see this starting would be in case @DyonisX (since he already wanted to host this one originaly but Cluster took over with his ideas instead)or someone else would take over.
  21. He probably meant Phenomic.

    Guild Wars 2 : My new addiction

    Yeah it used to be buy to play, but the core game now a days is free to play while the expansion costs money (and not having the expansion limits you in some stuff like mentioned in the OP)
  25. So, Last Tuesday I started playing Guild Wars 2 and I´m hooked. Homepage: https://www.guildwars2.com At the point I make this post, the expansion is 50% off (23€) First things first: Guild Wars 2 is a Multiplayer Focused (Yes I needed to point that out) MMORPG. You can play it for Free till level cap, but can´t enter the Zones that the expansion provided and are restricted in some other ways, like not being able to leave the starting zone pre level 10. entering World vs World pre level 60 and most imporantly: You are really restricted on trading. Imo the core features that make Guild Wars 2 differnt from most MMORPGs I´ve played are following: Your Level get´s adjusted to the zone Level you are in (IF you are a higher level than the zone that is) and you get % based experience instead of flat amounts. What does this mean? Well, If I were to go into the human starting zone with max level and killed a random Monster, I´d get the same experience % that a Lvl appropriate player would get. But what does this mean for gameplay? Well, If you really wanted, you could help out your new friends who just started out the game, while not running around one shotting everything and you´d still get experience for it! (Even at max level there is a sort of "experience" bar). How are group play and parties in this game? Parties in this game, other than for dungeons/raids/personal story (gonan talk about this one a little bit later) are pretty unnessacry. Why? Well, Quests progress on YOUR participation, you only get progress based on things YOU do, you do not get XP for monsters your party members kill and everyone gets their own loot. But doesn´t that make group play unattractive? Not at all. While quest progression is tracked individually, everyone still receives the same amount of XP from mobs as they would when playing solo. The greatest thing about this is, you don´t even NEED to be in a party for this. Some guy killing a rare monster nearby? Participate in the kill and you get loot and XP aswell. The same goes for events. What are Events? Well, events are basicly repeatable quests that respawn after some time. Depending in your participation on them you get a rank for it from Bronze to Gold, depending on your rank you get more % XP. Some of em feel like regular quests, some are just "Kill this monster!" while some go as far as being World Bosses. And don´t forget: Someone is already doing the event? You don´t need to join his party, just participate and depending on your participation you´ll get rewarded! (Even if you leave before the event is finished, or die during the event!) What happens if I die? First of all, if you go down in battle you aren´t dead yet. You still have the possibility to fight while being down, but only for a limited amount of time and that time can get reduced by taking damage. You now have 2 possibilites to get up. 1. Participate in the death of an enemy nearby, this will revive you with around 50% HP. 2. Have someone help you up (All players and sometimes even NPC´s can do this!) If you don´t get up in that time frame, you die. When you are dead there are 2 ways to get back to live: 1. Have another player or NPC revive you. 2. Teleport to a Waypoint What are Waypoints? Waypoints are points on the map you can discover. And at any given time, unless you are in combat, you can Teleport to any Waypoint you´ve discovered. How many classes are there? 8 without the expansion and 9 with the expansion. Ranging from the typical Warriors, to the Illusion abusing teleporting Mesmers. Also, in this game they are called "proffesions" What is the personal Story? Based on your Race and background story you choose you´ll start of the story differntly, and you´ll be able to influence the story in some ways by having the ability to choose between multiple options. What endgame features are there? Fractals, Raids and Dungeons for PvE players and for PvP plaers there are World vs World and multiple PvP modes. How important is crafting in this game? (Proffessions in others) Well, depending on the Craftmanship you learn, you´ll be able to make money with it! (Who knew!) You´ll also be able to forge Legendary Equipment. Does the world you choose matter? The only thing it really matters for is World vs World. Other than that? You can freely play with anyone from any World. What ways are there to level up your charachter? You can level up by the following ways: Doing Events, Questing, Exploring (You can get a pretty decent chunk of levels just by doing this), World vs World (This is only aviable for free players from lvl 60 onward) grinding mobs, or even doing proffessions (You can get level cap slowly by just gathering ore/wood/herbs) Why do I recommend this game? This game is unlike most MMORPG´s I played. You feel like you are part of a massive world where everyone wants to help everyone and has no reason not do assist you when you have problems. Even in some starting zones there are MASSIVE events and world bosses that get you hooked really fast! (Like the Shadow Behemoth in Queensdale) You´ll fall in love with some Zones (Despite the level cap of Kessex hills ending at 25, I leveld there until 35 and even went back into it for my final Level up because it was that fun and memorable. While leveling, I never felt like being a free to play player ever disadvantaged me, and it was well worth getting the expansion, the features that it adds are extremely fun, and even just grinding out zones with events I´ve done like 30 times still feel fun because of the fluid gameplay. So yeah, do you guys play it? Do you guys enjoy it as much as I do? Are people in here possibly interested in creating a Guild for us to play together? And last but not least: What is your tag ingame and what are you interested in? (username.2353 for example) Once I´m home I´ll add my name for the list and for now it´ll be empty. Username and tag Interests Shotty.4823 Atm the game as a whole. ImperatorSK.3705 Pandemonium.2061 (PublicFrenemy)
