Thread: My first 14 Days ...Continued in the Adventures of Shattered

  1. Default My first 14 Days ...Continued in the Adventures of Shattered

    The journey continues ....

    Trucking through the first 4 days, getting the grind setup, learning the ins and outs, Im in a position now that I started to think about what life after level 20 will be.

    Day 5- I was determined to learn more about scripting and how to make my own. So getting some more lessons and understanding how it worked, I put my creative juices to work and got to thinking....if Jesus was playing GSIV shattered, what would he create? Time to put some hours in the lab.

    On Day 7,The night before, one of my toons died, and didnt get any experience after being raised, so i said, Jesus would reincarnate and get my ass back out there fighting again! So i did that! I made my first script that would Call upon the great Alfred to get my dead ass, bring me back to town, Use thy chrism, and raisith my ass, while afterwards thy script would run back to the nexus, heal and spell up, wait 5 minutes for spirit and get back out there to die again! Perfect!

    Many hours and many deaths later of testing thy script, SHABBBAM! We have an auto raise/back to hunting script! Im a genius! I mastered the script world!

    I shouted my success.. only to everyone only to find out....everyone has one as well.......

    Not to worry, I still pat myself on the back! I now have a endless rest/hunt scripting setup now that will never stop! Unless the GSIV "Kick me out of the game" gods come to visit....


    The next couple of days, I decided to use the gift of free unlimited skill resets to try a bunch of different builds. Some were basic, others were outright horrible! I was in that state of mind that everyone goes through when your heading into that final stage of being locked in at level 20!

    I cant make any mistakes! I must do my research, and dig deep on the dark web to find the perfect stats and builds for my characters.

    30 hours in, 65 cups of coffee, 2 redbulls and a cupcake later....

    ALLASS!! After all my hours of research, all my frustrated reads of horrible threads, and just trial and errors, i have found it! I have found that there is no GOD DAMN GOOD STRAIGHT FORWARD BUILDS ON THE NET!

    So, Im confused... For 20+ years, No one decided to make a site where people can input their stats, builds, suggestions for all classes. NOPE, its a community of total secrecy on how to have perfect characters for your style of play! Everyone got together and decided that we will break up all our secret builds over 1000 forum threads and you have to hire Tom Hanks and Nicholas Cage to come, and find the secrets of the long lost perfect builds. Anyway, off my soapbox...

    Screw it! Last resort, ask the pro's! And shattered has a ton of them! So after a couple of days of this absolute hot poker to the eye torture of research, i took a break. I have 48 hours to finally make my decision. Lets work on some other tasks for now to clear the mind.

    Day 10, Im casually just messing around, doing some more voln tasks for a couple of toons, and i get a message from my man Mitch.

    Mitch hit me up, said wanna go on a boat and kill a ship? I said hell yea, Boats and Hoes! We hit the docks, I have never been on a boat, so i was excited to see what adventure awaits. We boarded the boat, mitch showed me the mechanics and how-to of what to expect. We went down and grab some balls. We brought many balls up, and stuffed those balls into the long giant cannons. We are prepped for war!

    Raise the sails and Off we go! Racing through the seas, the mist upon us, Im enjoying the ride so far. And then suddenly, a krolven warship appeared charging right after us. I yelled "Come get some Bitches!!", and took aim. I was gonna be the shooter, mitch was gonna man the balls. As the ship came closer, I started firing like a madman on steroids after hitting the gym for 12 hour straight! Die you bastards! Fire! Fire! Fire! Fire! ....what felt like 843 shots later, We sank those Krolven bastards. Victory was ours! I looked at Mitch, clenched my fist and belted out, Upgrade your damn cannons man! My firing finger is killing me! That was a fun venture, and cant wait to do more in the future.


    The start of Day 13 is upon me, its D Day! Final decisions for locking in at level 20. After many discussions and theories, Im locked in, stats are loaded, skills are set and CONFIRMED! Now on to level 100!

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The first 14 days went by extremely fast. For alot of scripting, there was still so much to do everyday. Leveling, trailing different builds, guild tasks, adjusting scripts, more adjusting scripts, new places to hunt, and much more!

    As fun as the first 4 days were, the last 5 were just as fun. And now the next 30-45 days will be even more challenging. Getting ready for DR, farming up Silver for EG coming soon, and continuing to progress towards the goal of level 100 by new years day.

    Here is my 14 day recap of my main:

    Wizard - Shaww :

    You've not been warned on the character Shaww. You havent been flagged as a high maintenance customer. You're not being monitored for vulgarity. You haven't read the policy in full. The area you're currently in is subject to vulgarity monitoring. (LOL)

    Your hands glow with power as you invoke the phrase for Minor Water...
    Your spell is ready.
    You gesture at a zombie.
    You hurl a seething blast of steam at a zombie!
    AS: +247 vs DS: +115 with AvD: +44 + d100 roll: +35 = +211
    ... and hit for 81 points of damage!
    Seething steam strike to neck leaves it tender and juicy.
    You hear a sound like a weeping child as a white glow separates itself from the zombie's body as it rises, disappearing into the heavens.
    The zombie falls to the ground, a lifeless lump of flesh.
    Cast Roundtime 1 Second.


    -Averaging 40,928 XP a day
    -This will take 183 Days to level(5 Months 18 days to go - Give/take)



    Now its on to more adventures, expecting as much fun and challenges as my first 14 days.

    That's the one most of us never managed to script for, the what if scenario of GSIV servers going down. I think Tillmen has something setup to auto-log his characters back in and resume normal operations once the instance comes back up, but for the rest of it it's just time lost.

    I hear you. Shattered is priced a little high for my blood at this time as well. I might do it for $5 or $10 a month.

    As far as Shattered goes...the best time I had in the game was in Shattered. But that was years ago.

    I'd have to agree. Even though I had been a gemstoner for 10 - 15 years before Shattered came out, and had a wealth of good memories in game to draw from, those couple of years playing Shattered was the best time I had in gemstone. Alot of why it was the best time I had in gemstone revolves around the Shattered no rules around scripting, roleplaying, free speech, etc. The removal of the mommy controls and all PVP restrictions caused the player community to be more cooperative than I had ever seen it be in prime. Even though we fought a war of the people who wanted to PVP everyone all the time, versus those who didn't want that to be how Shattered worked, it all wound up being a rather good time and the challenges of scripting around the PVP wars was fun.

    I remember that first month or two, I always had my eyes on Zul Lugoth as a destination for some reason but when I got there it was so isolated from community services that I wound up settling for Ta'Illistim.
