Trove Unboxed: Try Classes Before You Buy! - troveshop.net

Now you can take every Trove class for a test drive before you pick a favorite. It’s our pleasure to introduce Class Trials!

Trying out a new class is easy:

  1. Open the Class menu (J)
  2. Click the Trial button on any class you haven’t unlocked
  3. Enjoy!

Each trial class will earn XP up to level 4. Mastery Rank and dragon bonuses aren’t applied during the trial period. You can switch between these classes as often as you’d like. Once you’ve found the class that works best for you just consume a Class Coin to unlock it or pick it up with Credits.

Better call Saul because this is the trial of the century!

troveshop | One Shots: Slipping between shadows

troveshop | One Shots: Slipping between shadows

I’m not one of the stealthy types in MMOs, mostly because very few games give me the chance to hang upside-down from rafters and then do a 25-foot freefall onto an enemy’s spinal column. Instead we mostly get Rogues crouching like they have to do a number two and walking slowly in broad daylight while everyone pretends not to see them.

Then again, you occasionally get games like Elder Scrolls Online, which makes stealthing look downright cool. “ESO has so many places I think ‘I’d love to actually go there,’” Damonville posted. “Of course I wouldn’t want to be eaten by what’s there in the game. I don’t think my stealth skills are at the same level as my little Wood Elf characters.”

Stick to the shadows, man. Stick to the shadows.

troveshop | Bless will be down to two Korean servers after its next round of merges

Back in February, Bless underwent a merge of its servers — sorry, a “server integration” — over in Korea. According to Steparu, June will bring yet another round of merges, leaving just two servers total, down from more than 10.

Aeria Games announced last month that it will publish Bless here in the west; alpha is planned for “soon” and the server plan for US and Europe hasn’t been finalized.

The MOP Up: EverQuest gets hardcore (June 12, 2016) on troveshop

The MMO industry moves along at the speed of information, and sometimes we’re deluged with so much news here at Massively Overpowered that some of it gets backlogged. That’s why there’s The MOP Up: a weekly compilation of smaller MMO stories and videos that you won’t want to miss. Seen any good MMO news? Hit us up through our tips line!

This week, EverQuest is in the throes of a “Hardcore Heritage” event, featuring much more difficult versions of Clan Crushbone and Permafrost Caverns for high-level players. “Classic zones, tougher challenges, better loot,” Daybreak explains, just in case you were wondering why adventurers were loaning their corpses to this crusade.
