Ok, this is pretty much a rage thread.. so keep the hate to urself >.> if ur not gonna give DECENT feedback, dont reply at all, I have no time to deal with haters.
1. Weaponry and Armors
-Sure there are guildleves and some shops that sell low rank weapons and armors but why arent they making weapons and armors more accessible to the players?
I just dont understand why you have to rank up several crafting classes and gather 1000000000000 items to make a single piece of equipment. then lather rinse and repeat for the next item. Wonderful ain't it? Would it hurt them to make NPCs that sells armor sets and weapon sets that more ppl can get access to? They could make it weaker than the ones players craft since they INSIST on making u craft.
2.Skill point EXP
-I dont understand why this has to be random. Sometimes u get high SP, sometimes low and sometimes u get nothing at all. Why cant it be like the Physical EXP that is constant/static every time u kill an enemy. I dont know if we have to do a certain attack/weapon skill pattern to get the most SP out of a mob. I SERIOUSLY CANT STRESS ENOUGH how broken SP gain is ryt now. As of ryt, now, im a rank 16 lancer and I'm lucky if i get 50-100+ SP. and I am grinding off of Lone Wolves and Young Galagos.
3. Party EXP (3+)
- I dont know if this is a known issue, but party exp is bugged when u have more than 3 ppl. Most of the time someone in the party will get no SP and worse even no EXP.
I know SE wants party play, but if its like this.. no thank you.
-I know i know, theres alot of rage threads out there about crafting, but seriously, what is SE thinking. In my case, I am trying to make a Harpoon (Rank 9 Lancer weapon). The funny thing is, I have to gather mats and rank up,god knows how many crafting classes to make the weapon. What's worse? I need CRAFTED materials for like rank 10-15 (fish glue). And god knows where I can get the mats for that. I just dont understand why u have to switch to so many crafting classes, gather materials for that, rank them up, and FINALLY, FINALLY, attempt to make something. (And hey, theres no guarantee u'll succeed on first try). What's EVEN WORSE? I dont understand why u have to go through ****, burn there and back to make a Rank 9 weapon. I mean, seriously? I'd love to see higher ranked weapons pls >.>
IN A NUTSHELL
- I cant see anything praiseworthy except the graphics. SE indeed spent 6 yrs, just making pretty graphics. everything else is broken to me ryt now. I already want to cancel my account and just reactivate in when things are SOLID and FIXED. Sure, SE has alot of great ideas for this game but their execution is just so BAD. so bad, i feel like im gonna puke. I feel like I have no freedom because of the FORCED crafting. I'm sure many players out there arent crafting lovers. Might as well make a crafting game Square Enix. But as of now, this game is a struggle. and a POINTLESS one at that.
