I started playing again after the Patch. And so far, the game seems good, all the patches, and upgrades here and there, are welcome, some are more of a Meh!(SP nerf! I DONT WANNA GRIND DODOS!)The only real complaint i have about the game, is how harsh it is on new players(Or more like how complicated it is just for the sake of being complicated)
And im talking about tradeskills, they are annoying as i have never seen in any MMORPG, so i made a gladiator, and i though "Hmm I might as well make my own armor!" So i go grab a hammer, and a pickaxe, go out and mine.... Curse at SE for their stupid mini game, and keep on doing it, then after i have a nice number of ores, i go back, sit down, and start to craft.... Oh Wait i have no recepies.... no biggie, i'll look them online, let me just ALT+TAB.... GAME CRASHES! <.< Ok i'll put the game on window mode, let me see i need ... wait what i need to make 15 thousand items, to make one item ? WTF ? ok hopefully they are all from the same tradeskill class, oh but NO! SE in all their wisdom decided i need not to only make 5-6 items to make a stupid bronze spatah, but i need to also level up another profession in order to make said wepon.
So i was like Meh! F** That i'll just buy it, jesus is only a lvl 11 wepon, and considering i can only do 8 leaves in 38 or whatever hours, it should cost what ? 10k-15k i mean 200-300gil per leve at rank 1-10 right ? So i search, see a few, so i go and what do i see ? BRONZE SPATHA 100k Gil!
Anyways after farming sheepskin, selling crystal shards i finally got my bronze spatha for 35k from an NPC vendor, now back to farming so i can replace all those weather armor pieces before i'm R50.
