Oh, I'm aware of the glam influences of those brands redface.gif But there's not much to take from SZ with regards to those elements.

Yeah fair enough. Basically what I was saying in my last post. Its a real shame that the first google result for a lot of those brands is so humorless.

Goth Ninja RPG Strategy Guide Part I: General Gameplay and Classes
Quote:
I'm hoping that authoring a new strategy guide will create a dialogue about gameplay so some of the noobs stop being total kooks.

One of the things which makes Goth Ninja difficult is intentional obfuscation of the rules - Goth Ninjas are intentionally vague about how the game is played because there is a capped maximum amount of exp that exists in the game at one time. That means if lower level players level up then higher level players lose exp. Sharing information about Goth Ninja also hurts individual players working one of the major leveling activities: kopping high-tier items from new brands before they are discovered.

While there are plenty of retail sites where people kop GN gear, a lot of people play Goth Ninja by cruising the AH for deals. High level players have honed their skills using the AH. They utilize stylezeitgeist.com classifieds, styleforum.com classifieds, global.rakuten.com, ebay.com, ebay.uk, ebay.de, etc. You can also find shitty, leftover loot on Yoox... Yoox is the leftover loot from other instances and sometimes you can find high-level items but when you do you usually can't get as good a discount on them because they are likely to get snatched up quick by other players.

One of the biggest accomplishments in Goth Ninja is to acquire a grail. That is, the first time a low level character acquires a high-level piece of loot. Having acquired a grail shows that you're a dedicated character and you've probably dedicated some time to your class. A lot of Goth Ninjas claim that they grind to achieve their grail. There's also a guide which talks about this.[8] Sometimes this is true, some people save up for a longer time in order to kop 1 piece that they are dying to have. But like in other MMOs, a lot of the high level players got there with the help of Chinese gold farmers.

I'd never really considered this style an option (I'm a tweed, corduroy, and wingtips guys), but after this guide I really think I could incorporate some elements into my wardrobe! Having the elements of goth-ninja broken down in this way helps me to understand what they're going for in their outfits, too, which will help me appreciate seeing it in action in the future. This is a fantastic post, and is exactly the type of enlightening/fun/informational source I was hoping for when I began looking through MFA a few weeks ago.

Is Umit Benan worth it? Some really cool pieces, but seems rather expensive.

SZ takes itself far too seriously.

I still remember the first time I ever visited that site and thinking how pretentious it seemed prior to reading even a single posting. Everything from the word "zeitgeist" to the hooded ninja graphic in the banner is just dripping with the fever of an angry young nihilistic male who is a social misfit, yet likes to imagine himself superior due to his supposed elevated appreciation for art, design, and culture.

^ no different than your "supposed" righteous condescension...

hope they didnt rub you the wrong way, just im sure a polarizing presentation was chosen... for a reason.
