I used to play TSW a while back, for a couple of years solid. I’m finally trying the new game out, and was surprised to see while making my (ONE AND ONLY) character that there are classes now… instead of picking abilities off of the wheel (which was totally new, sweet, and innovative with TSW).
My main was Elemental + Shotgun DPS, another character was Blade + Chaos…
Currently it seems like my best routes to recreate a similar character would be either Magus (Elemental + Chaos) or Punisher (Shotgun + Hammer - hammer being new to me, I think it was only introduced as a quest weapon like Chainsaw was in TSW?), with Assassin sitting as kind of a third option.
So I have some questions about the differences (Since I think I stopped playing between 2014 and 2015…)…
How long until you can unlock new abilities/weapons? CAN you unlock new weapons/all weapons eventually? (in TSW, you totally could, and could build different decks, it was sweet.) I’m hoping for someone who has played TSW to explain.
I saw something about different shell types for shotguns - so it sounds like the combat system has been completely revamped, not merely tweaked compared to TSW. Can someone point me to a handy guide?
In your opinion, which build should I choose?
Are people still playing TSW a year after SWL has launched? I did see that I could download the patcher to my new laptop… Is it a ghost town over there, or is it still fairly populated? (I’m wondering if I don’t enjoy the new playstyle/have options open up early enough in Legends, if I would be happier playing TSW and going back to that.) That said, I really do want to be where the PEOPLE are.
(Just like Ariel… “I wanna be… where the people are…”)
Thanks a ton, everyone!
