PvP Boot Camp – Beginner’s Class

The TSW PvP events team is hosting an event for people new to PvP in TSW.

“This event is organized to introduce players to the PvP part of this amazing game with the help of experienced and friendly PvP community veterans.

As the name suggests, this event is for those looking to begin PvPing in TSW and those who are simply curious about the PvP aspect of the game and would like to learn more. You have no prior or very little/limited experience? Not a problem – this event is aimed at helping you start off in PvP and for you to get to know the PvP community.

We will host another PvP event aimed at more advanced PvP players at a later stage (will be advertised in advance), so those of you with more experience in PvP will get your chance to talk more advanced builds and tactics with your fellow PvPers then.”

Mod Spotlight: Topbar Information Overload 2.4.3

Viper has returned and updated one of the most popular mods for TSW, namely Topbar Information Overload!

For those of you who don’t know about this mod, it adds an Addon Manager that most other mods hook into. It will also line up your mods nicely in the topbar.

Aside from that, you can choose to display lots of useful info in the topbar such as latency info, currencies, coordinates, and so forth. This mod is now compatible with every change up until Issue 10, so what are you waiting for?

More information in the original thread here. The mod can also be downloaded on Curse.


Mod Spotlight: ImmersiveHUD

This mod will hide a lot of the HUD elements when you don’t need them, such as outside of combat, with the goal being to create a more immersive experience with the less amount of UI clutter as possible.

“The mod is created with questing in mind, and is not tested in dungeons at all. This mod is not done and still needs a lot of work, but should be ready for testing anyway so if you find a bug or have suggestions please let me know. Next on the to do list is a options panel and adding more HUD elements to show up when moving the mouse cursor to the bottom center of the screen (this currently only brings up the ability bar).”

More information in the original thread here. The mod can also be downloaded there.
