    Don't let these trammies fool you it is not old school. It is current siege without ROT and without the new lands. It has everything through imbuing.

    Has no insurance, Brit is the only GZ, skill gain is 10x faster than production, and a POS glass sword that one hit kills. 10k dmg. and Vampire wars, like they had in the past. take out the swords and it would be a pretty fun shard.

    The shard seems really awesome but I don't get the whole...
    "One hit, one kill" sword. That is completely stupid.

    I'm definitely making a character.

    I stole some guys LRC suit after we interrupted him and his lady's cyber sessions in their 7x7 north of brit GY with my 5 minute old character and a glass sword. They seemed pretty butthurt which amused me but I don't see a point in playing a "classic" shard with a 2010 skill and itemset. Simply calling this "Classic" rather than a redone siege or a current but pvp based shard doesn't sit quite right with me its like the devs are trying to trick oldschool players to return only to be sorely disappointed.

    If you are expecting to be able to roll around with no armor and magic resist and win you are mistaken. If you want to make a leet tactics/wrestle/swords halberd mage this will only disappoint you in every way.

    It's not a classic shard. It wasn't intended to be a classic shard. No one at EA/Mythic has called it a classic shard.

    They added sword's that do 10k damage but you can only have one in your pack, but takes 30 seconds to get

    What happens if you both have the one hit/kill sword?

    Do you kill each other?

    I think the RNG decides I didn't stick around long enough to find out.

    And fair enough about the dev's not calling it a classic shard but a boatload of players sure are as evidenced by Shaun's posting so I decided to clear the air for him.
