I apologize if you get a lot of these kinds of posts.
So I've been going through videos etc looking at the game and it looks VERY interesting, reminds me of AA a bit. Now I understand the game is in beta right now over at korea so I don't expect to get definitive answers to some of my questions.
1: The bars seem empty, looking at some of the endgame content it seems like the players only have 10 or so abilities on their bars. Now that's not necessarily a bad thing, but I am curious if the pvp requires skill. Comparing the game to AA in a fair fight there was so much stuff you could do to outplay etc.
Answer: a1) Each class has 50 skills, give or take, divided in core skills (which can equipped and represent your specialization), passive and active skills
2:Sort of a followup question to 1, how is the gear balance? One of the things that bothered me in AA was that it felt impossible to win against anyone with more gear. I know there is going to be people with more gear than me but if I play a decent amount every day am I just going to lose to gear?
3:Flying mounts? Personally not a fan because it tends to ruin WPvP, I heard that you could get one, is this true? Also if true how greatly does it affect worrd PvP?
Answer: 3) Flying mounts are VERY rare drops from world bosses and last only 7 days, anyway you can ride dragons to move from a zone to another one like in WoW.
4:Solo pvp? One of the things that turned me off of BDO was that the game greatly discourages going around killing people. Some of my favorite moments in MMO games have been taking on multiple people trying to burst the first guy then play circles around the others.
Answer: 4) Devs are going to ehnance world PvP in the next patches. There are different kinds of PvP, battleground PvP and open PvP, on youtube you can find good PvP videos like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wh53TZtB2bE
5:Fatigue system. Which things does it limit? I personally liked the labor systems concept in AA where you had to dump the points every day to normal grind stuff and then you could go out in the world and do fun stuff. Is this similar? Also any news of fatigue potions(aka the road to p2w).
Answer: 5) Fatigue system will be softened a lot in the next patch, it's mostly used for crafting, taming, minions and battlegrounds, I think they removed fatigue cost for dungeons.
6:How is the ping from EU?
Answer: 6) I think it's around 230ms but you'll notice it when endgame bosses use their AoE skills.
Thank you in advance for anyone who might .
