Urgatorb8 here… how about a discussion on what binding and gating options characters will have? Can everyone bind where they want? Only certain classes? Limitations on where bind points can be placed (cities only, within dungeons, anywhere)? Can binding only be done at a shrine or special NPC located in predetermined places? Stuff like that. Thanks guys!

Militus – After having played EQ, EQ2, and Vanguard, I think the writing is on the wall that we will see an increased number of bind points in Pantheon. I like the idea of strategic bind points (like in vanguard).

Boom – I guess it depends on the realism aspect.  One of my take aways playing another game was that bind points might not be needed.  I would love to have to run to the closest town before I log and pay the in keeper to let me be there until I play again.  I would love to have to use all these cute little towns along the way and remember where they are. I think being able to port to a group is essential though.  That way you can get organized for the raid.

Hey @boomtap I haven’t read much into Pantheon due to it being so far out still, but what is the solo versus group play going to be like? Will I be able to solo a bit? I know you and Tess enjoy soloing also. Is that going to be a thing?

Segment 1: News
MassivelyOP covers the March Newsletter

It is not so much that the article stated anything new, but the reader comments are very telling! Let Militus explain a bit.

Segment 2: Moments of Zen – Soon to be Pantheon Patient Segment. How did we spend our time gaming this week?
Tess – I played some EQ2! NathanNapalm and Whintur took me under their wing and I had a really great time getting to know people and leveling up a bit. Also, BLOODLINES 2 ANNOUNCEMENT!!! https://www.bloodlines2.com

Militus – I experienced lots of camping, body pulling, and deaths…. Haha. And, i enjoyed every damn minute of it.

Boom –  I played Assassins Creed Odyssey and it was amazing. Full tilt awesome.  There are some design features I think would be good in Pantheon actually.  Even though it is a single player game.

Segment 3:  Forums and Reddit
From Reddit Posted byu/rulyono  – Should Beast races be brought into Pantheon or not?

The title is pretty self-explanatory but a Beast race specifically meaning animal. Skar is beastly but not a Beast race.

Other beast races featured in MMOs. EQ1 – Iksar (Lizard), Froglok (Frog), Vah Shir (Cat) EQ2 – Added Ratonga (Rat), Sarnak (Lizardish) Vanguard – Vulmane (Wolf/Canine) Guild Wars 2 – Charr (Hulking horned catlike) World of Warcraft – Tauren (Bull), Pandaren (Panda), Worgen (Werewolf) Final Fantasy XIV – Hrothgar (Horned Beast Werecat)

Boom – Only need the Archai
