When did you start playing Allods Online and what motivated you to get more involved with the community here?
I started playing Allods a little over a year ago after switching from another mmo where I didn’t really enjoy the community, so this was one thing I was looking for from Allods.
It wasn’t until after I came back from a short break that I became properly active on the forums though, and even then it was only really in the psi section. Over time I’ve found myself posting everywhere :?
I love reading peoples’ ideas & viewpoints about the game, and the community feels comfortable enough for me to post my own. I’m a big fan of the GM events, and I’m always surprised by the quality of work people put out for them. For me it’s a great testament to the game that we have so many passionate and talented players.
What advice would you give players to help them maximize their experience with Allods Online?
I would always advise players (both new and old) to try as many things in the game as they can. Each class has unique mechanics, not to mention the diversity of builds available. Also, a lot of players miss out on the lower level zones of the opposite faction, but I’ve always found it interesting to see things from a different perspective.
A lot of characters will find themselves struggling against an “anti class” – I remember having trouble with paladins so I levelled a crusader alt to the early 30s to explore their weak points. They’re still a hard class to fight, but understanding their barriers & attacks is key to defeating them, as well as giving insight on how best to support them as tanks/dps in group content.
Also, things are generally a lot more fun when you have a regular group to play with, so I’d definitely say consider joining an appropriate guild if you haven’t already. Even if you’re just helping each other out with quests/instances you’ll probably find you get a lot more out of the game.
What is your favorite experience with Allods Online so far?
I really liked the old pvp around AT (way before emblems). Even as a low level it was sort of fun avoiding packs of level 40s.
More recently I’ve enjoyed astral & heroics, but I’d have to say my proudest moment was when we finally cleared GT as a guild. It was something we’d worked on for many months so it was a great feeling.
Clearing Blackjack’s Bid with Loveguardian back in the day.. discussing my early psi builds with Noggin (and later Monobots).. desperately trying to keep Ejac purified in a group duel with Lockness.. King helping me with dragon ring rep :lol: lots of memories.
What made you decide to play your chosen Faction and Class?
I didn’t read too much about the factions when I started (I like to learn as I go) so my first characters were an imperial mage and a psi. I think the psi got to around level 20 before I decided to try out the other faction. I ended up preferring the league zones and I haven’t really left since.
My first proper character was a kanian healer called Kabril, but when I came back I was keen to try out the psi changes on my gibberling alt- who has since become my main.
Are there any players that you would like to shout out to who have helped make your time in Allods Online an awesome experience?
Main shout out has to go to my guild, WarSong. Some very talented players, but more importantly a great bunch of people. More often than not they’re the reason I log on. Tark <3
There are far too many to mention really, but I like to think I’ve gotten on alright with everyone- so if you know me then err, hi :)
Also, special mention to the GMs & scholars. The work you guys put in is incredible and goes a long way to making this community as strong as it is.
