Diving back in

Post by Towwb » Sun Jul 26, 2009 10:15 am

I retired from AO a little before LE and the new engine was released, but lately I've had an itch to pick up a couple machine pistols and take a Yalm out of Omni-Trade. I doubt most of the LE stuff affects me as an unorged froob, but did anything major change between then and now for us? I assume most of the important stuff (Clicksaver, item dbs) is still around, right?

welcome to aofroobs!

The new engine you mentioned hasn't yet been released, it's scheduled for the end of this year. Game play for a low level froob should mostly be the way you remember it :) Clicksaver and auno.org are still there.
Have fun playing AO again :)

Welcome back :).

A lot is still the same, but at the other hand: so much has changed. Since the changes come gradually it's hard to keep track of them. Things that come to mind are the rework of Steps of Madness, pvp-system and the Social Tab, but there is much much more. If you really want to know the tons of little changes, the only way is reading all patch notes. For example "/rp" is something you might never find out, since it seems most people forgot about it even (at least I kinda did till I remembered lately).

/filter ftw, my website (click sig) has a script to block tons of system messages, take what you want and leave the rest out :)
