    A really great job

    1 question to the video.

    Why are you useing banshee as a player spell? It was also used to the video when the beta was comming, and still being used, but we cant use the spell in game or you maybe planning it??

    Yeah, take out the Banshee spell bit in the video, unless a player or mob is going to be using it.

    Face forward and you should be able to hear it now the only thing plugging your ears is your own fear. There is only one enemy and one of you so what is there to be afraid of ? Abandon your fear turn and face him, Don't give an inch. Now advance Never stop If you retreat you will age Be afraid and you'll die NOW SHOUT OUT YOUR NAME !!!

    No changes with Rick. He is the quiet one behind the scenes. Pulling the strings and pushing the levers while hiding behind the curtains....

    You have to watch those quiet ones. They actually do things when other people are sitting around talking.
    I just lost the game.

    I agree, showing off something that is not accessable by players, or when mobs don't use it, is not a great idea. It creates the impression that the only purpose of the video is to lure new players in with shiny things, and when they get ingame and ask for that famous spell in the video, they get the answear that the spell is not accessable by players, and also not used by monsters; and so those people feel lied and cheated to, that is probably not a good start. It is not like there are epic spells out that can be used, showing off Shining Blades, Dark Cyclone or Burning Archer would have been a better choice.

    Funny thing is a saw once Kaa use Fury of the Power Demon, oh and good old Nazderon did use the Soul Gate spell, those would have been also okay to show off.

    Ok the Video is great and its realy nice to see that the promotionunit of Istaria has come back to life again.

    Still i've canceled my autosubscribtion 5 day ago and the reason is simple. The last patches.

    * Formulars are to expensive and cant be armortisiert till new are needet by advencing, in addition to the fact that you dont even all you forms by the trainer and must accept formular junk on the gambling mashines. New people have difficulties to advens in this game and will leef again. Thereby can you create the best Video even in 3D HD. Old peolpe get hit right in to there face if the stand before the porter and cant port to where there where porting allread several times. The mad have a highter crafterclass as Adventure because of plot building, but are unabel now to continuing there work on the plot because they can not walk to the city to unlock the gate because of there lower ADV Level....
    Allso i've heart that you have cut on the quatity of the trophies. You allow only 7 Charts if you dissabel allmost the to let have more ADV classes by one chart the Intrest of the game end soon after the reetch of the Endlevel allway was - allway will be.
    Noone fights 1h for "one Trophy".
    You've changed Names of mobs and changed the formular needs as well but the droppings not all, well there some have appollojized for it ok but it was not the first time...
    Plots who can have one you have mengered them and now, allmost non are taken. Now its not just takes long time till ou see advences on the plot and lears wich has uncoraged many builders, no now there are that expensive that many playes dont take one. My friends have quitt the game now to they hade this to times in europe. Some of us will not only build we also want to use them.
    Such reaction was not the first time, dont you love ou game anymore ? Or doe you realy not learn at all from the past.
    Players will allway go and new come (hopefully).
    But to say it more clear you patches have cost in the last 3 month on intire Guild, if this is not telling ou somethings ou can ask my comment anytime you want it still will not help you.

    ITS YOUR GAME BUT WHAT WILL THIS HELP YOU IF NOONE PLAYS IT AND IN THE FUTURE WILL SAY "AH ITS FROM THEM; FORGET IT WHAT IS GOOD WILL NOT LAST LONG"

    Ah, the painful old talks...

    Anyway it's better if they show the unimpressive small ancient model which is truly playable than the awesome but taboo bigger model. Otherwise people will feel cheated once they want to become ancient and get the small thing.

    I did enjoy the video, since it shows that Istaria still is alive. It is a little bit slow on showing things, but still impressiv. For that banshee spell, who knows, maybe it will be thrown in sometime, I like the looks of it.
    My feeling for Istaria says, that the community is what really counts. Sure, I love being able to play as a dragon, but really keeps me to it is the really, really friendly people.
    But, back on topic, the video is made wonderfully. I look foward to Istaria developing further in the future, whatever things it may hold. :3
