    I'm happy to announce I have been invited to participate to the Arkship EU event at NC Soft in Brighton! The event starts in April in the weekend of Friday 19th to Sunday 21st!

    I'm not sure yet if I can share more then this information with you at this time, but I'll inform you when I can.

    What I can do in the meantime is gather questions from the Wildstar community. I can't promise answers, because I will be under a NDA. Please write down your questions below in the comments, so I can collect and take them with me to Arkship!

    Let me know if you are invited too!

    Are there any plans to include the customization of abilities (eg, an item to make esper abilities green instead of blue), or do you think that would make things too confusing?

    (If I'm allowed a second question): Space/Airships and Space/Air combat, y/n/wecan'tsayanythingaboutthatyetslywinkyface.

    Edit: Also, thanks for the opportunity :)

    So I'd venture to say beta will likely be soon after that then.

    Gratz on the invite :roflamo:

    Question:
    With all the elder game systems announced so far being instanced, what methods (if any) are being employed to try and get people into the open world once they reach level cap?

    Wow, thanks so much for the offer, Black Wolf (and congratulations! :D)! I will only ask one question of you to ask (though it may be a bit of a doozy :p)

    A lore question for Chad Moore!

    To me, the Dominion seem depicted as villains, albeit ones with the potential to be very complex / sympathetic (though this isn't really seen in the current media we have). What about the Dominion makes them more morally grey as opposed to being all "join us or die"? (because the oppressive aspect of the Dominion is a huge hurdle to overcome, no matter what 'positives' we know about the faction. E.G. we know that they treat people who join/agrees with them pretty well, but the fact that they present such ultimatums in the first place is, in my opinion, almost irreconcilably unjust).

    I know that we have various fan explanations, but I want to hear what Chad Moore has to say on the matter :p. He's touched on it in interviews, but I haven't felt that any of those answers have been toooooo convincing, and I know he's said that he's keen on making BOTH factions a little 'grey' in terms of morality ^_^. I really want to know what's 'under the hood', so to speak. :p

    I would really appreciate it if you try and press him for a more detailed answer than what he's already given! :laugh: I don't want to be overbearing, but it's just that we don't know much about the Dominion and their stories, I'm really curious! :oops:

    Thanks again for the offer, Black Wolf! :up: If I could come, I would love to pick at Carbiner's brains myself! ;)

    What do you look like in real life

    I need to know so I can create an accurate Mission Impossible mask and replace you at the last second before the event.

    Congrats on getting the legendary invite, Black Wolf, and for offering to ask some of our burning questions! :D :cool: :up:

    I definitely would love to hear this response as well!!!

    I also have a question for Chad Moore (because I don't think it was able to get asked at PAX East):
    "What can you tell us about the moons that orbit Nexus? Are they artificial or natural? Do they serve any type of specific purpose?

    Oh! And one more question for Chad:
    "Is it at all possible that the Eldan didn't die off but instead disappeared to somewhere else and are still alive? Is there any chance whatsoever in that?"

    I don't know if or how much he can answer about these lore-related questions, but what can I say? I am obsessed with wanting to know about the biggest of secrets. :oops:

    Hehe, I know how you feel. :p

    We've had a lot of gameplay questions answered through PAX and stuff (and they said that they're gonna do deep-dives into War Plots, Payment Models, etc soon). What we need moar of is lore! Ask ALL the lore questions! :laugh:

    Also as a bonus question I'd like to ask if that's alright, could you please find out what Chad Moore was going to say here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bTiN82JkWKw ? :oops:

    Grats!

    On the topic of questions: Will there be something like musical instrument in lotro? I dont exactly mean the same thing, but a mini game or group activity that gets folks together to socialise. Something like a stall you can put up and display items on or a stage you can put a play on at etc .
    Something a touch sandboxy for the rpers.
    Maybe something as simple as a piano in a tavern , or a chess board that you can play against someone that everyone else can see.

    Gz on the invite :)
    I am not jealous at all.

    Questions:
    Will we get weather?
    How do the night/day cycle work?
    Will there be mini games?
    And the most important question, can we get a cat vanity pet.

    This, please! I'm very curious about this myself. I love being the villain but it would feel better in the long for an MMO to have a more "fleshed out" setting that's not quite so black and white. So far the Dominion have the "superior" tech and uniforms, the evil-sounding name, and they displace native populations. Not exactly sympathetic! ;)

    I have a seemingly silly question that would bring me outsize happiness if it's in-game :p .

    -Can Espers summon/cast more than one or two fire-and-forget pets (ala DAOC Theurgist) simultaneously, with them attacking based on who was targetted at the time of casting?

    I've seen the video where an Esper summons two, but I'm curious if you can spam several of them consecutively with them active at the same time. :D Also...

    -What other kinds of Esper summons can we expect? I saw the bit mentioning charming a pet... does that provide a commandable minion? If so, can you still send out fire/forget minions while maintaining a charmed pet?

    Thanks Black Wolf!

    EDIT: Oh heck, one more:

    -How many different PVP battleground and arena maps should we expect for launch? Are we looking at a limited set of only a couple, or a larger variety like Warhammer Online provided (at least several)?

    You definitely deserved it, Blackwolf! You're gonna have to do enough interrogating and knife-twisting for both of us. ;)
