Congratulations and welcome to the club!
When did you start playing Allods Online and what motivated you to get more involved with the community here?
I started playing Allods just over a year ago in the first days of Open Beta at the constant urging of my friend. At first I didn’t like it and almost quit, but fortunately I stayed. Up until last December, I never touched the forums. Every MMO I had played had terrible communities. However, over Winter Break I couldn’t get on Allods for a couple weeks so I decided to check out the forums, and found out that this is an amazing community of which I am proud to be a member. From there it snowballed, and I love being able to debate aspects of Allods and help new or returning players.
What advice would you give players to help them maximize their experience with Allods Online?
If things get tough, don’t quit. Endgame content here is simply amazing and is worth the haul to 45. Also, jump around between classes and see what you like to maximize your enjoyment. The same goes with factions, League and Empire are like night and day and I have seen many players unfortunately quit because they didn’t like one faction.
Finally, if you make any enemies, which you likely will, don’t let them ruin the game for you. Trust me, there are plenty of people who don’t like me, but I ignore them and it works fine. If a small number of people dislike you, take it in stride and be the better person.
What is your favorite experience with Allods Online so far?
So far is a big part. I plan on having many more great experiences, but as of now it would have to be raiding Novograd.
Back before the 47 patch, Melting Isle was very slow one night, so a couple of us from Doom, Reborn and Chaos went through Asee-Teph and Avilon into Lightwood. We got through pretty easily, but rather than going into town I disappeared into Kania. I got all the way to the june ruins to Frozen Frontier from Siveria, but I guess I was too nice to the Leagues, because after waving and grinning at a few a healer and paladin came to kill me. But since two came I took it as a compliment, haha.
What made you decide to play your chosen Faction and Class?
My friend actually was the big factor. He told me to make a scout, so I did. I chose Tensess Empire because thats where he was, and at the time we were the same level and so we quested together for a while. Eventually he moved on and has only recently came back, but I kept going.
Although I didn’t choose to play a scout, if I could start over, I would choose my scout every time.
Are there any players that you would like to shout out to who have helped make your time in Allods Online an awesome experience?
Definitely, everyone in Doom is great: Redwlf, Gruman, Mrjackal, Dolce, Hellgear, Arcaneangelz, Oruga, Godfromhell, theres just too many to list here.
Biggest of all though, is to Ainakorro, without whom I woluldn’t be here.
Not to forget Gwynell for welcoming my paladin alt into Pheonix and letting me get back into the Nezeb League scene.
And last but not least, all those haters. You know who you are. Thanks for giving the Allods experience some variety. ;)
