Well as I said in the topic about five top muds I decided to give cyber assault a try.
My character is imaginatively called "dark" (yes, you would never guess that was me would you).
for anyone not familiar with the game, Cyber assault is a scifi themed mud with pop culture and semi post appocalypse elements, though I believe it's more fun than grim, ---- grimly fun?
either way connection info is cyberassault.org port 1111.
The mechanics at the moment rather look like Alteraeon with guns and aliens rather than swords and dragons, but I literally have only just started, indeed if any veteran players want to give a little more info about the game and it's unique features feel free.
first, I found the "blind filter" thanks to a kind person on chat, though any other handy in game toggles and screen reader fixes I should know? it is a slight issue the game doesn't have a screen reader help section to help with that info, though that is a db entry might be able to help with.
On a more basic level, any suggestions on which class is good for soloing? I have had a look at the descriptionsfor the classes, and other than highlander being hardcore, crazy being basically like a mage in other games and borg being literally walking tanks I'm not exactly sure what some of the others do.
Mercenary seems like a fairly average jack of all trades with a speciality in guns or swords, but I'm not really sure how they differ from predators.
Stalkers look like thieves, and callers seem to be of the ranger/druid type, ---- which does incline me to play one though right now I'm about 9 levels in would like to know a little more before committing myself, in particular which class is good for solo exploring.
Second, I have more practices than I know what to do with right now. It would seem to make sense to at least practice some basic weapon type skills, but I'm not sure which as typing practice gets me a huuuuuuge! list, and unlike something like alteraeon it doesn't appear you get a few class specific skills each level to decide whether to invest in and play with.
I now need to break for tea, but I'll probably be back later, as I said I'm Dark on there if anyone wants to give me a yell.
Btw, I do here there iss a soundpack which is of course cool, though it'd be nice to see how things work just in text for a bit, particularly if I am to write a db entry.
