  • Blizzard take note

    Reading about the upcoming Tabula Rosa MMO

    If you're not completely sure about your next career branch, you can opt to "save" your character at any time by logging out of the game and creating a clone of your character in its current state. Then, if you decide you want to try an alternate path, you can log into the game as your clone and take the other path rather than having to choose a brand-new character to slog through the early part of the game all over again.
    No point here, just think that's was one hell of a good idea.

    And Richard Garriott FTW of course :)

    They use the 'family' system as well so everything with your account is saved under your last name. When you clone you can actually make a 'sibling' at the same level with the same accomplishments, but all your gear on your original character isn't carried over (of course you can just throw everything into a footlocker and get your gear that way).

    Shotty and Density Field Gun FTW! ;)

    It was a confirmed casualty some time ago.


    Light, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to hide the bodies of the people I had to kill because they ticked me off.

      FFXI had something similar with their Job System. I loved it.

        Not exactly. Information about the classes can be found on the main page so thankfully it doesn't violate any NDAs to talk about it. ^_^

        In FFXI you started with a job, but could switch to any job you wanted when you wanted. Don't like being a warrior? Switch to a black mage. From my understanding the more you advance the more power you get and more jobs are unlocked to work on. Eventually you can pick a secondary job to complement your primary and do two things at the same time.

        TR has a strict tier system that branches at level 5, 15, and 30. At level 1-4 you start out as a recruit and have pretty balanced and basic skills. At level 5 you can pick between a combat orientation (soldier) or a 'magic'/support orientation (specialist). If you went soldier then you branch again at 15 between combat that is just blanketing firepower and hoping you killed the ant with your carpet bombing (commando) or combat that is stealthy precision (ranger). At 30 you specialize again if you went the precision route to a close quarters "reach out and stab" approach (assassin) or the "one shot, one kill" precision of ranged combat (sniper).

        Its very interesting and the use of cloneing makes revisiting those key levels easier to try out both branches of the field without having to make another level 1 character and doing the run and gunning again. Of course that's still a lot of levels and time. Once from 1-5, twice from 5-15, four times from 15-30, and eight times from 30 onwards.
