Okay guys, I'm new here so I can only assume most (if not all) of these issues have been talked about before but I need to vent a little:
-First of all, how is it that you get a bigger pay off for crafting than you do for fighting? It makes absolutely no sense. Not only if the pay off much bigger but fighting exp is gimped as all ****. How is it that an enemy who **** near kills me sometimes gives me less than 100 exp for my current class!? Also, grouping is almost always a nuisance compared to soloing as your exp is greatly cut. I was duoing with a conjurer last night while he constantly healed me so I could kill some orange gauged Galagos but he was barely getting any exp compared to me so he quit shortly after we started. SE needs to fix all of this FAST. I can't believe they would release the game with such a glaring problem in it. It takes me HOURS just to rank up and I'm only at rank 17!
-Secondly, the enemy gauging system needs to be worked over. Sometimes I can beat the snot out of a yellow gauged enemy and sometimes I get wrecked...They really need to make an enemy's power level more clear to us.
-Thirdly, gear damage is RIDICULOUS. I don't even see why it was implemented in the game. All it does is add frustration. It doesn't add challenge to the game, it doesn't require skill, all it does is make us waste time, money and materials. Just to rank up, I have to repair my harpoon about 2-3 times. This is gonna RUIN party play in the long run. People having to leave the party to repair their gear and situations similar to that are going to happen A LOT unless they decide to fix this crap.
-We need an auction house. I don't care what anybody says, the way the market currently works is horrible. They're going to have to add an auction to save us all a ton of frustration.
So far, it almost seems as though SE didn't want us fighting in the game. It's like they threw in battles as a side thing you can do if you want. Instead they've focused on crafting so **** much, it's ridiculous. I bought this game to grind with a team of friends, level up and get stronger and move on to bigger, badder enemies. Instead I'm stuck soloing and having to craft for a ridiculous amount of hours just so I can make some decent gear and solo some more. Get your asses in gear SE, you've got TONS of work ahead of you...
