Default DAOC: Uthgard Revamp v2.0

As most of you are probably aware by now, Uthgard is in the process of undergoing a major revamp. They are working on implementing and fixing everything they talked about for years but never got around to until now, such as;

-Shrouded Isles expansion (all zones/mobs)
-Shrouded Isles classes (fully working)
-Live NPC Pathing (which doesn't exist on any other daoc emu server atm)
-Old RA system
-Revised XP gain system
-Old Battleground Zones (Caledonia, etc.)

In order to reset balance to the entire server, they have wiped all the old accounts/chars, so when the server is up again - it will be like it was for the first time, but with everything already working like it should. To see the status and updates of the server, just check their front page/forums.

If you want to have a fun time and experience the server with veteran (non-elitist) players, you're welcome to run with us, whether you're new to the game or not.

Make a post in this thread with what class you intend on maining, and I'll update our list here, this way we'll know not to make too much of the same thing and have a well-balanced group/guild. The current list of players is preliminary, I'll add the rest once I confirm they will be playing again for sure.

It's not hard to learn how to play well, all it takes is time and desire to learn to play as a team, and we'll have more than enough practice on the way to 50 in the battlegrounds!

Battleground RvR Zones are (non-instanced):

Abermenai - Levels 15-19 - Highest allowed realmrank: 1L2
Thidranki - Levels 20-24 - Highest allowed realmrank: 1L3
Murdaigean - Levels 25-29 - Highest allowed realmrank: 1L5
Caledonia - Levels 30-35 - Highest allowed realmrank: 1L9


Installation:

Download the full client from the main web site: http://www.darkageofcamelot.com/downloads.

Download DAoC Portal: http://www.dolserver.net/daocportal/, after installing portal, the settings are self explanatory. DAoC Portal is a freeshard frontend for DAoC servers.

To create a new account you simply login with whatever user/pass info you want to use, and it will create your account.

When you attempt to login to Uthgard for the first time, DAoC Portal's Mod Manager will automatically install all needed patches, so there's no need to do it manually.

For class spells/abilities and to plan your char spec, use the Uthgard Character Builder

Using Web IRC (live guild chat room): you all can join our guild chat channel without having to download any software whatsoever. Just go to https://client00.chat.mibbit.com, select the server: Rizon, use your forum name as your nick, and channel: #uthgard, hit 'Connect', feel free to idle in there whenever possible - it'll be our main way of communication for quite a while!

I cannot say what we need most at this time, it will become clearer once we're actually up and running with our first chars.

Can you explain how the RR rankings work and what their benefit is?

gained via RVR (pvp, 3 different factions). Similar to AA's in EQ. Gives things such as extra crit chance for spells/melee, instant mana, more CC resistance etc. Stronger you become in RVR the stronger you become in PVE. Very fun game.

Oleris said it right, but to break it down further; the PvP in this game has it's own XP bar, which improves by obtaining RP (realm points) by killing the enemy factions. Just as there are 10 bubbles to every regular level, there are 10 bubbles for the PvP level.

As you gain more RPs, once you gain a bubble, you get 1 RA (Realm Ability, aka EQ AA) point you can either save or spend on a bunch of various abilities. Each class has access to certain generic abilities, as well access to class-restricted abilities, and 1 unique ability specific to that class exclusively. Once you gain the 10 bubbles you gain what's called a RR (Realm Rank,) each level has it's own special title which is visible to the enemy above your head. Instead of seeing your name and guild name like your allies would, the enemy sees your Race followed by your Realm Rank (e.g. Kobold Stormur Vakten.)

I forgot to mention that with each Realm Rank you attain (every 10 RA points,) you also get +1 to ALL your Spec lines starting at RR2. So someone with RR3L0 (roughly 62k RP,) would have +2 to ALL your Spec lines. These bonuses stack with those given by items.

The Spec bonuses given by items uncap by a value of 1, every 5 levels, kind of like how your skills in EQ go up by +5 every time you level. So a lvl 50 character, can have a total of +11 bonus to his Spec lines, on top of which stacks the bonus from the Realm Ranks. As an example, a Level 50 RR3 character would have +13 to ALL Spec lines.

Spec bonuses affect your spells in that Spec line as if you actually trained it up to the total value, this can increase your direct damage and healing, as well as the Style damage for the melees. So a Druid with 5 Regrowth with a +5 spec bonus, would heal as if they had 10 Regrowth, but would not gain the actual spells obtained through training.

player roster update: one of my old friends from Uthgard, Vorhal will be joining us as well, as an Enchanter! Total players now at: 53!

Will you be playing in Hibernia also, and if so, which classes did you have in mind? We're mostly a US-based guild, but we do have some members from Euro and other countries as well.

Never played live but might have to try it. I'll have to research classes though, some sort of wiz or mage
