New World's first expansion, Rise of the Angry Earth, launches tomorrow 10/3 at 12 noon ET! There will be lengthy downtime ahead of the launch and players will need to re-download the entire game. This leaves today as our final prep day before the expansion!
For anyone interested in my larger plans; I documented that here: New World Rise of the Angry Earth Preperation Checklist . This post will be more about; did I get it my prep done and are there any final adjustments to make?
The big answer is: no. No, I did not get my prep done. Real life is busy and I ended up camping and fishing this weekend with friends so I'll be rolling into the expansion with little in the way of raw materials and completed quests.
So what adjustments am I making because of this? None. I am going to just enjoy the game and play at my own pace as I have always done. My original prep list was all about getting stuff done fast to be on the cutting edge and I should have known that wasn't going to happen. That is not my style.
I am still a completionist so getting all my crafting and refining skills to 250 will be a goal. Getting faction levels and to 65 will be a goal. Getting my mount and getting that leveled up will be a goal. I will just take it all at my own pace.
And my pace is going to be behind the curve because I won't be available for the launch due to work. I will maybe get to log in late on 10/3 but won't have time until 10/4 and realistically 10/5 is when I'll get a good chunk of play time. I am hoping this means I miss out on launch day headaches but get in on some of the launch-related shenanigans.
What are your plans for launch?
