What fighting skills do you have? and which do you like the best, and which don't really stack-up?
Master level in Rend Flesh, Bite, Drink Life, Inhuman Precision, Psychic Spear, and Blood Splatter. I also have Shadow Dance, Seductive Glance, Shadow Mirror, Mist Form, Rigor Mortis, Hunger, and Dark Angel. Rend Flesh and Drink Life are my go-to skills. A mastered Rend Flesh is quite powerful and recharges almost instantly. The healing properties of Drink Life can keep a tougher fight going for a couple extra attacks. I've just recently acquired Seductive Glance and Shadow Mirror, and I've noticed fights becoming a little easier, so it'd be nice to get those mastered. Shadow Dance (instantly jump to an enemy's location and surprise attack) is ok, but sometimes I don't think it does a whole lot of damage.
What is your favorite mission or quest, and how do you play it?
The mission that I've done the most and has gotten me to level 100 is Another's Dawn in the apartments downtown. This simple item-retrieval mission can be finished quickly, and the EXP gained from it and the monsters you kill along the way really helps with the insane amounts of EXP needed for high-level leveling.
What Type of making skills do you use the most? What do you enjoy about making?
First, I always go for the items that will give me 200 making experience. Then I'll go for clothing items that either will sell for a decent amount or are in demand by the other vamps in New Valencia. I also like making titles for anyone who wants one. I have quite a few title recipes learned, so look for me if you want some name flair!
If you could get Matt Ohai to make one change to the game what would it be?
I'd really like to see item trading/selling expanded and made more detailed. Right now, everyone just announces what they are buying and selling in the chat, and it's easy to miss things. I'd like to see a special area in New Valencia, created specifically for selling and trading; a Market Square if you would. You could post anything you want to sell/trade and your asking price/trade. Others can then check what's up for offer and make bids. Hmmm...this is kinda sounding like EBay.
Any words of wisdom for the other players out there?
Don't just hover around the Haunting or the fountain downtown; get out there and explore! Meet new people and make friends along the way! There are some aspects to this game that reward exploring and making friends.
