    FYI,

    Blhaze here, on the hype train headed towards a place called 'expectation', hopefully we'll make it to our destination. If anyone is interested, take a quick look at SE's new offering, Outriders.

    https://outriders.square-enix-games.com/en-us/ (OUTRIDERS | SQUARE ENIX)

    The video clips from the beta look amazing, and they are being very open with their development plans.
    There is a free month long demo starting on Feb. 25th. If your feeling frisky, then jump onboard.

    Quite liked the demo, so I'll be in game on release. Oh and this -

    I played the demo, level 7, ran all the quests over and over and over but at my age I just can't handle the bosses at the proper Tier so never got any of the legendary loot.

    At age 71 my reflexes aren't that great and my eyes sight leaves a bit to be desired.

    So with I'd need some group to play with, someone I can trust such at a TOG member. I am dead set against playing in a pick up group. So playing this solo there is no way I'd get it. But with a regular group of TOG, sure. I'll spend the Green

    Please don't take this the wrong way but you are my hero for gaming at 71 years old. :) I tell my wife all the time that I look forward to retirement so I can finish my backlog of video games, I have a long way to go though.

    I'm in Australia so depending on where you are might be heard to organise a time to play. But I am definitely keen for so coop. I would recommend having a look at the Technomancer class if you're a bit concerned with reflexes, there's a turret and other "summons" you can set and forget to help with damage. Plus Technomancers can specialise in sniping.

    I'll be a Devastator which is basically the in your face shotgun and punching class. I don't usually play as that style of character but really enjoyed it in Outriders and want to give it a go.

    No offense taken Zesty. I am on the East Coast USA. I played all the classes to level 7 except the trickster, got that to level 4 and decided that it simply too twitchy for me.

    The pyromancer is my thing I think. Mid range. I have some pretty decent gear and cool down reductions. My main abilities can be proc'ed twice in row before the cool down starts and that is reduced by 15% by a buff on one of my armor items. The double proc is two more armor items. My damage is 384, Anomaly power is 227, Health is 254 and Armor is 982.

    My physical issues are cataracts in both eyes, so the dark dismal combat areas are a nightmare for me, that God for the muzzle flair to find the enemy :p I have carpel tunnel mostly in my left hand but there really isn't allot of running so I am saved wearing wrist braces. My arthritis only acts up when who ever is getting killed needs a heal but since this game has no heals, as we know them, I am pretty safe lol

    From doing some research; there is no in game comms of any kind. So a voice server is a must and another reason why "drop in and out" co-op is so lame. How do the developers expect a random team to coordinate with no comms?

    I did it, just pressed enter to pre-order the game with the free Rangers add on pack Here we go lol

    Yeah nice. Pyromancer was my first class I tried. I enjoyed it but felt a bit too much like the Warlock I play in Destiny so I thought I would try something different.

    Yeah no in game voice chat and it seems like there is not any plans to add it. Does seem a bit strange as there is not even a ping system which is becoming more common.

    I guess they just expect console players already have in game voice chat and for multiplatform there's Discord which is heaps popular.

    Now have to figure out how to add friends. If its linked to Steam my Steam name is DownSouth05 Oh and I am playing on a PC so if any of you are on something else, have to figure out the cross platform codes

    Yeah I'm PC as well. I just sent you a Friend Request on Steam. I haven't tried the cross platform yet but it seemed fairly easy in the video I watched.

    Sounds good. I need to actually level up my Devastator. Haha. I finished all the story quests but didn't really grind afterwards.

    Knuckled up and finally killed the Captain with my Technomancer on solo. Tier 4. Loot....junk No where near what I already had on :( Ok now the main boss Gauss by name.
    Again solo and on my Technomancer again.

    Toxic bullets, Cyro Turret and Missile Barrage up
    Armor buffs +3 damage to my turret.

    Ok so damage heals and I am on this thing 100% doing damage so I am constantly healing. The cryo turret shuts down about 1 second before the cool down ends so I have the turret up pretty much all the time. Also I used a light mahcine gun with a 100 round mag when I use the toxic bullets which last till I reload then it goes on cool down.

    So I killed that boss finally and I am all hyped up for the legendary loot that is supposed to drop for all bosses. Well guess what. NOTHING! A blue sniper rifle and a white pistol.

    As to Discord where do I post? Also, friends seems to be linked to steam so once again my Steam handle is Downsouth05

    Being retired with virtually no life beyong my gaming I am sure I can handle Aussie time. If I am not mistaken there are 5 time zones on the continent. Brisbane is GMT +10 so +13 to me.

    I sent you a friend request on Steam.

    I didn't realize it but when I posted my big win over the bosses I thought I was at the top tier. DOH :( I switched it up to Tier 5 and starting over once again. I think I've run the whole demo story about 30 times, although I've only beaten the Captain and the end boss once. For a game that I was "iffy" about buying I spend an awful lot of time in it. OH BTW the stash of leather and iron maxes out at 1000 so if you are at that point, I'd say not to break down anymore gear.

    Here is a little "exploit" I discovered. Once you break into the 1st set of doors in your quest to reach the tower, there is a loan Captain that chases you. Well if you run out of the doors and just get into cover you can kill it with virtually no damage or chance of getting killed because the captain is taller than the door and he can't get through. :D

    Also when you enter Gauss' tower go through the door up the stairs and into that corridor; make your 1st right and go around a bend. There is a chest in there :)

    Hey Bryan, was rereading the thread and saw your post. Friend Downsouth05 on steam and we can hook up in game.

    I am also wondering how to set up a discord channel for us within the TOG Discord. I saw an option to just create a channel but is that a "one off" thing or permenent? I dont want to step on any toes.
