I wonder if this is leading into the other game they are working on or will end in conjunction with the launch of exciles, or it could just be like the last few "content" releases, no real dev time, a quick injection of something else to do but no long term benefit.
I assume most people will at least give it a crack, but who feels like starting a 20th char?
They are making money.. They also got investment monies now. I think the game is doing well currently.. So they will do a new raid as follow-up. Maybe a T6.5 , this is great news - I will be rolling an a glass cannon. I am happy cause I want to do purist dungeons as well. The hopes is if they advertise it correctly, they haul is new players on a fresh start and keep them. The issue being not a lot of people playing at those levels anymore... If we get a surge of new people, they will have the funding for new raids.
I think it was Bonggy who provided the link above that has a bit more information about what Saga of Zath has to offer.
I'll be naming my BS either Dreamwalker or Kaianieves. I think that the plan was for us to set up a Requiem Nex guild for our Saga characters too?
I was excited at first about the potential for new content but after reading the patch notes I am disappointed. it seems we will just re-level toons, use raid finder to get to Tier4 (removing the need for khitai 6 mans which are fun), then repeat T5 and T6 raids to acquire T4 cloak and T6 weapon as special quest loot???. Seeing as how both of my toons are full geared and need nothing this doesn’t seem worth the time. It would be different if there was an actual unique new reward like the Rune we got from exiles or something. But it’s the same reward we can get by raiding on the same server we are already on. Plus it’s only been a short while that my characters have been max geared and I want to enjoy content with them using that max gear ....not starting a new toon with zero gear. Also I am NOT looking forward to spending weeks of grinding DMC camps to get from 60-80. Oh god no. I’d rather have some more Vanaheim type content if we cant have T7.
Saga server is interesting, provides items that will be exclusive to the Saga Server. Plus you can get T6 weapons and necklaces out of it. And if any guild can kill Ethram Fal in T6 before the server goes down, the whole server gets something out of it. So it really depends on how interested you are in that. I think it's worth it personally, but I still play AoC every day.
Coten due to the fact that we need 24 people to complete a raid, and since we will need a raid with the right composition of healers/tanks/DPS, we decided on the Saga Server to merge with Rogue Angels. This will only be on the Saga Server however, we'll still be Req Nex on Crom. We figure this will maximize our chances of clearing all the raids before May 15th when the Saga server shuts down.
