Yes, i have read something about a possibility to hit with the shield also, wich can be cool as a stunner or to apply certain debuffs currently on the shields.
But as it is now i still have no answer to what these stats really do, and why there is no uppdated wiki.
As i see it, coming from mmos a looong time ago a wiki was wery important, as it is now.
Imaginer playing Anarcy Online with no wiki?
hehe, not possible.
There are really to many items in-game that no one know how to make, or what the stats really do.
This in fact makes the game shorter and smaller then it really is.
I have seen people reach 60 and not even know about how to press oil, or that you can use seeds and even coal in the presser.
I know this is what devs really like you to do, use the items and functions in-game, but how can we if there is no wiki to explain the stats and items in a complete manner wich is searchable?
For me its ok, i like to explore and investigate certain things, but for many gamers this isnt the case, they complain about things that in fact are possible in the game but they dont even know it.
The shield example here is a good pointer as to why things are as they are, its close to impossible to play and know about all the features wich are in or out of game, as there are no wiki that are updated, and there are just to many items and functions for most people to remember.
On my server i can see many elementary questions come up, and many times of course by new players, wich is fine, but in fact these same newbs are the ones yelling loud as h…, and they dont even know that the exact thing they want or need really is allredy in-game.
I used to use the online wiki to find items i wanted, and that ment get a group together and kill the world boss or visit that dungeon, this is really added value, and makes the game last a long time.
It holds the community together and thats allways a good thing.
Even tho this isnt a mmo, i seem to play it the same way, i do most solo, and go with friends when its needed, i dont really care if its 10 or 1000 online, as i newer play with them, and they usually hang in the citys or in a different zone anyways.
And as i allays have missed a place to call home in a mmo, i love the fact that i can build my base, furnityre and style it and call it home:)
