I have leveled a Berserker to 29 and found the game to be pretty gud so far. Dungeons have been fun and require your attention, the world is beautiful, and the combat system hasn't bothered me at all. I personally feel delay has an issue with how the combat feels unresponsive. The leveling is a large grind, but this is the first game where I don't really mind at all. I know this game has a large focus on PvP, but the PvE has been a lot better than other recent mmo's. What are your thoughts?
I'm really enjoying it so far. I don't have an issue with the combat either (playing Paladin, only level 24 so far). The world is huge and beautiful. The mount/pet/minion system is soooo addicting. I have spent hours just leveling up/capturing new things. I am excited to learn more about the crafting system and cash shop though. I think once there are better translations it will be easier to understand.
glad you're enjoying it! yeah i gotta start learning about the crafting world a bit more too. it seems like i have to constantly upgrade my gear through crafting, but finding the right crafting items is kinda tough. though, i've just found out that there are special gathering nodes that look like crowns, where u can gather a large quanity of mats within a 2min timer. feels like hitting a jackpot on a slots machine. its been a big boost in my ability to craft. hope theres more intersting stuff like that to discover _^
I've never seen the crown thing. I'll have to keep an eye out. When I'm out gathering mats for food I've only gotten 1 mat per node. I'm not sure if it's because of my low crafting proficiency or something else.
I can't say enough about the mount taming system. I was killing a boss mob for a quest and just randomly thought to try to tame it... It worked! I have a new mount that is a spider/centaur/devil lady. So neat.
Tentatively positive. I do love the trinity but have mixed feelings about LAS as a model. Most of it looks gorgeous, though there are clearly some areas that need a lot of work.
The biggest complaint I have is the non-consensual pvp. I love pvp when everyone has signed up for it, but I have no interest in ganking people who are just trying to gather herbs or whatever, or having others do so to me. And having a temporary anti-pvp item as a cash shop consumable is a pretty slimy answer to that.
I liked everything about the game that I have played except for the combat. I don't hate it, but leveling an assassin it felt like multiple skills used the same slash animation. Its the impact and animation of some skills that bored me. If I have to grind to max level the combat has to be interesting for me to not grow tired of slaying 20+ mobs per quest. I think the mount system and open world is BEAUTIFUL. Really good game but yea just like 90% of the other players i'm whining a bit about the combat as well though i love the game.
