    Hello again,

    Are you expecting seamless transition between zones or a hard zoning process with a loading screen?

    This has been seen and answered, there are hard zone lines. This doesn't mean the zones are small, zoning will be similar to EverQuest.

    Question for Joppa:

     

    Could you remove the soft-focus/beauty filter from your webcam?   It's not working.  You'll never be as pretty as Ben.

     

    LOL....

    I was just wondering if u could emphasize a little more details about the Founders Conclave. Been debating on bumping my pledge up, but was curious if you guys could give a little more info on it

    I was suprised to see how elaborate the skill system is planned out to be in this stream. I know they said that eventually you can fill in all your skills to max level but I didnt catch if they said if point choices could be respected as you level. A huge part off the game and challenge is getting to max level and not after you are able to fill in all skills at max level.  I feel like you could have all sorts off sub classes to balance if for example a warrior focuses on dps point spending rather than tank.

    Joppa came into a stream after the official news stream ended and said, "Current plan is to allow AP respecs at a coin cost that increases each time you do it."

    I don't know about which is more beautiful but something I noticed was that they had an order or progression on beard growth going.

    I hear what you are saying and I'm excited about this system too.  I will say however, I don't believe their intent is to have "sub classes" but just to allow "improvements" in aspects of the class.  To your point though, if I went for a warrior, I for one would likely go for a more damage focus, especially since reallocation of points will be possible.  (My reasoning for that would be that the warrior will likely be more tanky at earlier levels, allowing for points to be placed in improving damage until it becomes evident that defensive skills are needed).

    I'm VERY curious to see what the skills are and how they will evolve for each class (will you be able to focus more on dmg as a cleric knowing that your heals will be a bit better than the other healers by default?!)  Can't wait to see!

    add:  This would also be a great opportunity for a "skill calculator" page/app.  I can spend hours on those things.
