I basically haven't played an MMO since it was announced. I was hyped back then, and I have no reason not be now... It's still the best looking mmo I've ever seen.

edit: misread question somehow. Haven't tried game yet. soon...

I did not really read about wait times and such, did not even expect it, just picked a server randomly.

So yea, my reaction exactly:

Spoiler!


EDIT: and yup, the estimated wait time stuck at 35-36 minutes. 11/10 would q again.

Yup..big time....It's an awesome game...Once I learn how to PVP properly it will even be more fun...Joined a clan already and everything....I was really surprised that two days after head start some people already hit the level cap...I know the game wasn't a grinder but I didn't realized reaching the cap in 2 days was possible...

I asked a few capped level players how and the answer was basically the same...exp boosts and nearly no sleep in those two days...plus they already knew the game in and out from Beta....It nice to know I can casually play for about 2-3 weeks and hit the cap....

I bought the preorder when they were first offered, played for about 3 days, got bored with playing mailman online (quest, quest, run here, talk to this person, kill 4, pick up 3 things, talk to that person, etc, etc, etc, rinse and repeat infinitum) and then I asked for a refund. I hate that, the game play is so ridiculously linear.

pretty much doing quest when leveling but you get real actions when you are max out.

Arena PVP... No open world. Everything is planned and directed, this is the opposite of open world/sandbox games. Not my thing.

At long last I have joined the game <3

I'm on Starfall Crater server IGN Poehalcho

feeling the addiction... haven't felt an urge to no-life a game like this in a long while.

I vaguely modeled my character after Izayoi Sakuya from touhou.
Now I gotta try and collect enough gold to trade for premium currency and get that Maid uniform from cash shop before it disappears D:

So... my friend who's already played it for a while told me I should just constantly keep upgrading my Hongmoon weapons. So I'm level 26 at this point... still using my hongmoon guantlets...

I don't feel underpowered, but it seems like such a strange approach I can't help but question its legitimacy :S

Is this really how I'm supposed to play it D: ?

Mandatory screenshots:
Spoiler!
As usual I like my scenery...

Yes you keep your hongmoon weapon for the entire game. Same with your hongmoon accessories, you just upgrade them all as you go.

Its an interesting system and I really like it. Basically you choose a single weapon and enhance it with you all the way as you yourself progress in levels throughout the game...It avoids the hassle of spending lots of time, effort and resources in trying to enhance a series of differently tiered weaponry and armor... Something most other games forces on you....

Downloaded game and tried, but error .200, contacted support and it was useless effort, got some generic answer, gave up on the game.

Looks nice :P.
hmm, is there a different daily spin prize on every server? Mine has Regium Corvus as the grand prize.
It seems my main goal in this game is to get as many outfits as possible :D
I think I'll eventually have to invest some Gold into getting a one-time premium service so I can store my clothes in the wardrobe :P

It is imo, the only competitor to BDO(Black Desert Online). Besides the fact that BDO is p2p and blade and soul is f2p.
