Morank – July 2, 2007
Race & Class:
Knights of the Unforsaken
First Name (RL):
Washington State, USA
When and How did you start playing Auto Assault?
I first started playing Auto Assault during the Beta event Penny Arcade sponsored. I’ve never really liked the whole swords and magic genre of MMOs so AA was a breath of fresh air in my game repertoire.
How did you choose you Avatar’s name?
One of my friends was over and I asked him what a good avatar name would be for a Pet class. He suggested a combination of “More Gankage” and resulted in “Morank”.
Why did you choose your main Faction & Class?
I chose the Mutants because I had heard it was the hardest faction (and lowest in population at the time) to play. I figure that if I am going to play a game, might as well make it a challenge. I chose the Archon class because having minions do your bidding is awesome and I like playing support classes, so the only logical choice was the Officer class.
Do you play solo? Why did you join a clan?
Being an Archon and playing solo is hard but doable. I prefer to group up with others because it makes killing the other factions a possible outcome to encounters with them. I joined the Knights of the Unforsaken since most of the members were from the Green Oyster Cult clan which I was part of. I had joined the GOC because Snap gave me too many shiny items to refuse his will.
Do you prefer PvE or PvP?
PvP as long as no one breaks out the greased upped slip-n-slide in cGZ.
Do you craft? What is your favorite crafted item (yours or others)?
Tried crafting for 5 minutes, got confused, quit crafting. My favorite crafted item is the Scales of Justice made by Snap. That thing is more awesome than a barrel of monkeys on a sugar high.
What is your weapon of choice?
My weapon of choice is a 35% skill recharge power plant combined with Pet Focus.
What is your favorite ride?
That would be the Hydra U-Class chassis. Really fast and looks cool at the same time.
Which junk item do you refuse to get rid of?
A seeking rear weapon that I used throughout Grand Junction. It’s not that great, but I keep it because it reminds me of how much I HATE that thing. Don’t know how many times I got stuck while deploying that stupid weapon.
What is your favorite NPC & location in AA?
The Echo, hands down. That whole story arc is awesome in fact. It made drowning in the Fetid Bayou hundreds of times worth it.
Who is your Arch-Nemesis in AA (Player or other)?
I. N. S. I. He has been ganking me since the day my treads hit the soil in cGZ.
What is your favorite moment you’ve experienced in AA?
Punting people across Ground Zero with the skills Breath of God and Oppressive Phase.
What song/genre you like to listen while playing AA?
“Target the Healer” by The Entire Vent Channel!
What current feature would you change in AA to make it better?
Pets that can be used as a viable option for combat.
Which new AA features would you like to see in the future?
Lower level PvP where they can earn tokens before being cast into the cruel world of the Gods known as cGZ.
