Not how the game works, there is no respec. you just start again on the circle you want to switch to, in the end you will have it all, same with the SP, in the end you will have them all.

iirc they said you only get 500 points so you can't literally get everything. I dunno though.

I still have to figure out a secondary weapon...hmm. Blood magic could be cool but seems too gothy for me. I'll prolly end up with Chaos Magic.

So, for those of you who are playing: does the movement and combat seem "floaty" to you? I've heard that from several different sources and it's something that would irritate me to no end. By "floaty" I mean does it seem like you're floating above the ground and "run" animation is just playing when you move? How does combat "feel"?

I can't speak for everyone, it seems fine to me. I have not played the DX9 version at all though so I don't know if it's a YMMV situation.

i think you misunderstood, I think you can only have 500 unused ones at a time, there's no cap on how many you can actually have. just like SP's cap at 40 unused ones. i lost a few by now knowing that and just saving up since their bonuses are so low there's no need for them other than to unlock weapons and talismans.

in beta at the end i got over 10 tousand points or so from the buff bot :) i used it to set up a deck then i logged out and waited for release.

also the way the ring works, 500 points I'm not sure you can even fill up a full deck

movement i general seems perfect for me as far as animation go.

I just haven't noticed if its increasingly grindy the higher you get in SP points if you were trying to get higher up in talismans or more weapons etc. I noticed you can respec AP (haven't tried it though) from the window but didn't see an option for SP.

Have you tried PvP or an Instance yet?


actually you can't respect AP you can only undo the ones you just added in untill you close the skill wheel.

So i changed my mind, because MMOs are my weakness. Green Man Gaming has 25% off on every game until tomorrow, and i saw they sell The Secret World. Being the weak-willed individual i am, i bought the game. I figure that MMOs are a fairly safe buy, because if an issue bothers me, the entry fee is only ever $15 to start back up in the future. I hope I end up liking it, but i'm not too worried - since it's only $35 or so. It can't be as bad as the $60 i lost on Diablo 3.

haha alrighty well I started this thread out of frustration then disappeared because someone handed me a buddy key. I didnt think much of this game in the Beta but post beta with my 24hr trial I found it to be quite engaging, Kingsmouth was good fun (didnt complete it) and learning the weapon system properly and figuring out the intricate nature of a few of the mechanics was good fun.

Definitely a bit of clunk to the UI and I find the missions except the main story all quite skippable I think were TOR spoiled me for choice was with being able to respond to dialogue...even if it wasnt needed and you space bar'd 99% of it, having a smart arse, evil or flirty option there made it feel a bit more engaging. I feel like your character in this one just stands there while people dribble on most of the time barely related to the info you need but all designed to build that atmosphere.

Not a fan of the lore system either, I usually love lore but again clunky system sort of puts me off.

Despite those things quite tempted to get this, I have zero expectations of me being in TSW for very long, I suspect I would finish the main storyline maybe a bit of instancing/raid/pvp and then call it quits (much like swtor, mmos just dont interest or capativate me like they use too, anyone else feel this?), but it feels like theres enough story, missions, content and atmosphere to easily make it through your free 30 days with purcase so in that regard seems worth it....I do have a tendancy with MMO's to burn the candles at both ends so to speak...busy at work atm not sure I should risk it so well see.

Glad theres some others out there giving the game a go.

For those who have purchased the game already and didnt know, you can send a 24hr buddy key to someone so they can test it.

Yeah, sadly it was a weekend only sale. I also feel the issue of MMOs not captivating me, but i think that's more just because there are not many good MMOs out there at this time. Guild Wars 1, and WoW both grabbed me for years, but none yet have repeated that. Looking at the MMOs to come out in the last couple years, though, i would not say there were any that were on par with WoW or GW1 - and this is reflected in the player numbers. The only 3 games that are doing well at the moment are Rift (a WoW clone), Eve online, and WoW. I'm hoping GW2 will grab me, but if not the future seems fairly bright for the MMO genre with stuff like WIldstar, Elder Scrolls online, Archage, Repopulation, Planetside 2, etc. coming out.
