Looking for some Advice ( From Australia )


18 posts in this topic

Hi Guys !

As the title says I am from Australia And I am about to get the game.

What I would like to know is what Sever to join ?

If some other Aussies could help me out that be great, I am worried about lag and want the best game experience possible.

Cheers All

I've heard NA servers are better for you, and maybe don't pick a melee class because lag will ruin your chances at fun. Lag for melee classes is a problem in the states too, but only could imagine it multiplying for you.

Good luck. Maybe some Aussies can tell u what servers/channels they play on.

Aussies play across all servers. And all servers are nicely populated, Uno being the Carebear server tho.

You will get rubberbanding no matter what and it doesnt matter what class you play. HF.

True, its just more impactful when you need the enemy to be close to you and it turns out they are 30 feet somewhere else.

I can't speak for other servers but I know on Edan a rather large chunk of my guild are aussie.

I also know of at least one high end hardcore PvP guild that is aussie only.

Try reversing it and you're a wizard casting meteor on an enemy 30 feet away and suddenly they appear on top of you

"high-end"

"hardcore"

"xenophon"

i cant tell if you're trolling or not but xenophon gets shit on by every guild on the server, even middle-class guilds. they usually have to call out 2 other guilds to come help and even then they can't catch up in score.

Rubberbanding sucks for everyone. At least u have pew pew skills and AOE from a distance:( Seems like witches and sorcs have huge AOE while my grapples have very small range to work. 

Admittedly I've also been magically grappled from 30 feet away as well :/ Wish that worked for me (or maybe it does and I can't tell cause it looks normal to me, but to them they thought they were at a distance) 

Good luck my friend from Australia. Good luck.

Don't get me started on world bosses as melee.

I don't think it's xenophon... but honestly I am not sure. I only heard about it in passing from another guildmate saying they wont even look at players if they're not aussie and have 130ap+

I'm not aussie, not a hardcore pvper and not interested in that kind of guild so... yeah, I really only passed along what I heard.

Thank's for the reply

Perhaps you could ask nest time you see one of your aussie guildies next time you see one how they find it

I have been playing WoW for 8 years and have finely found a MMO to replace the mess blizzard now calls WoW

My ISP is Bigpond and I live in North/east Victoria

The more casual Aussie guilds went to Edan.

More PVP focused Aussie guilds went to Orwen.

Edan has a focus on pvp

Orwen has a focus on pvp

Uno is sorta like housing commission

Don't have to ask, they talk about it regularly.

For all but one of them connectivity is "ok" and "Very playable" especially compared to the RU and KR servers. You'll still have some issues but likely not a whole lot worse than most playable games across the sea.

For that last one... he has a faster connection than I do and mine is pretty decent... so he never lags much to speak of.

Jump on discord and say g'day. :)

Rubberbanding won't bother you nearly as much then. Melee vs a world boss still might be a chore, but other than that it should only be a minor annoyance and not game breaking. 

Rubberbanding in PVP takes the fun out of it.

These are roughly the times for NA's maintenance. I notice a lot of Australians complain about the scheduled maintenance (Wednesdays) so this is a heads up.
