Playing a Shepard is fun as hell. I just dragged 4 pubbies through all four 5 mans in a row as a level 35 in mediocre gear with zero problems. Our 32 Tank was pulling all the trash at once like an idiot and it still didn't matter. I'm gonna start running guild members through dungeons because finding reliable parties as a DPS is hard sometimes.

I haven't taken the time to really pay a lot of attention to anything yet, I just keep auto completing quests, running from one spot to the next, and I did that first raid.

Is there some sort of deep system in here, like crafting/forging/enchanting?

There is a decent crafting/forging system but the materials are ridiculously expensive right now. Focus on 5 man raids and the reputation gear until the playerbase grows and you can buy things reasonably.

Question about the Reputation gear: I bought a piece and I can't equip it, and i can Identify it, but that requires crafting materials. Is that normal or is the game loving up?

Do you meet the level requirement? If not it'll have a red banner on the icon showing the level you need to be to use it.

Edit: Oh I just read the rest of your sentence..

I haven't seen that before so I'm not too sure.

I'm 33 trying to use a level 30 piece. I don't know what the hell is going on with it but whatever most of the gear is blue or purple anyway.

Yeah some of the best stuff requires you to Identify it before it's usable. You'll unlock mystery bonuses.

And to add to this further, gems jump from gear automatically when you equip new stuff.

As far as I know this is true for all high-end gear, whether it's drops or rep rewards. The 'identify' process is expensive, I'm guessing it's the main money sink in the end-game. Not standard MMO model at all.

We won our Guild Showdown against Exiled because those losers didn't even show up. We rode around and captured cannons and monuments and poo poo and got killed in 1 hit by their camp guardian until we learned to stay away.

If you're still a lowish level it could be the group you're with killed elementals of a higher tier than you could get credit for. It's kind of a dumb system -- some require 30+ and some are lower.

Or your group could be killing elemental lords instead of agitated elementals. They are different creatures that spawn in the same area, and people don't tend to notice or care.

I was looking into all of the contributions you can make to your guild, and I can't really do any of them yet, since I'm still only level 13

I'll get there.

Did anyone ever figure out what that "Artifacting" stuff is when spells are going off? It's like the spell effects are just Paint templates or something where particle effects should be.

The PvP isn't fleshed out yet. Just farm 5 mans until you're ready for Heroic dungeons. I finally beat a couple today and it's a nice 10 man challenge.

If you're not getting the purps you want to drop, check the Reputation tab. A lot of them are available though grinding.

There's tons to do.

It's a known issue, they are apparently working on it.

Seconding 'PVP faction isn't important' - guild pvp ignores it anyway, and the rest is pretty lacklustre and only available at certain times of day. They might flesh it out later but hopefully if they do, they add a way to switch teams.
