In this video, I try to explain what setting the game takes place in.

What is Eora and the Eastern Reach?

Who are the Dyrwoodans? What is Dyrwood?

Who are the Glanfathas and why are they so concerned about their Engwithan Ruins?

Who are the Aedyr?

Hopefully I answer these questions. Sorry if I ramble too much on certain parts of the video, I apologize.

Hey,

 

Just wanting to say that you are doing a good job overall. I like how you are approaching the topic in an informative manner and i like that you try to be as detailed as possible.

i didnt watch this vidoe but some of the other PoE videos you made.

 

I want to give some feedback on your videos.

 

1. You should get yourself a better mic, your voice is okayish but your PC sounds like you would sit on an Airport while recording, if you want to make these videos on a Proffessional basis this is something i feel is just not good enough, if its only because you want to make it as a hobby its okay i guess.

 

2. In the other videos you need to double check on things because you are not sure, also in the character previews you do not explain some of the base skills because you explained them in another video. the second point here is a mere inconvenience, but if you want to make the videos better try to capture the topic at the whole.

 

You should imho think about how you approach the video before hand, maybe go over what you want to say 1-2 times before the actual recording, maybe making notes. If you want to give informations you should be informed yourself, saying "the tooltip is not really clear" on parts of your videos lower the overall quality, as an example. Even if that is the case (which it is) you should still know how the mechanics you describe work.

 

i commend you on the effort you made so far and i feel its a good start so keep the good work up :)

Okay haven't seen video yet because I'm at work and gotta wait til I get home for the wifi goodness. After I watch I will give some advice. But I do wanna thank you before hand for doing this as I am so excited about this game that I literally know next to nothing of the lore and settings that haven't been said by the BB annoucements, so this will help me out a lot.

Wow, some actual feedback. Thanks. 

 

To respond to your first point, my PC is pretty loud and is sitting right next to my monitor. I'm looking to pick up an Blues microphone ICE mic, but I heard it won't really help because it'll still pick up my PC's loud noise fan. 

 

I definitely agree with your 2nd point. If I do make other videos, I'll spend more time preparing what to say so I don't ramble on in the video. Thanks a lot man, appreciate the feedback.

Hey Lord of Riva, I was able to get rid of the background noise from my PC's fan by enabling "Noise Suppression" and "Acoustic Echo Cancellation" under my microphone's sound settings. Seems to have done the trick! Now you only hear my voice and nothing else.

Thanks man, appreciate it. Going to make a general overview of the weapon types in the game next. Looking to make it more organized too.
