    some advice:
    1- get the flying reinder, there are NPCs at some towns that give it free;
    2- use the reinder for go to all rift stones and active them.

    this advice is for everyone returning for test the game.

    I don’t even know what a rift stone is.. or where to find one..

  3. João Carlos says:

    Rift stone is the teletransportation system. And near each rift stone there are NPCs that lend flying mounts (10 minutes use, 10 silver).

    so, rift stone flying mount = you go to any place you want fast

    The guide for the Riftway system: http://www.vgnecro.com/article/The-Riftway-Network–the-who-and-how-of-it

    I guess a lot of the players returning will be lost for some time.

  4. João Carlos says:

    The returning players are having some problem with bad stuttering when entering new crunchs.

    Aparently the problem is that VG caches textures ingame, from one chunk to another, one city to another. So if it’s the first time you visit a place, until you’ve run through the place and the system caches it, you will lag.

    The chunking problem is not new, but I’ve not heard that explanation for it before. In any case, I think it’s a minor problem – you don’t cross chunklines very often unless you’re doing lots of travel.

    At any rate, welcome back to Vanguard!

    Cant wait to read your opinions Star, both Mrs borgio and myself played vanguard from Beta through to release and we both really liked it, the hardness was spot on. But we got lured away by EQ2 again. Well now that we are 80 and waiting for the guild to catch up we may look at VG again. Maybe ill reactivate for this free period although im away all over christmas!
