So after hiatus from 2016 and having a fresh start again this 2020 season server, im got lost on what is the real end game content.
In all MMORPG i played, there are always 2 REAL end game contents - RAID and PVP, and its always RAID first to gear-up for PVP.
But in this game, it seems like field grinding(CM, DScm) is the end-game content. Everyone do it until they got bored and quit. Raid is not really that popular since its hard, time consuming, and not rewarding. and PVP is dead.
The only way to earn stable silver. Can earn 1.2m - 2m per run depends on team comp. Can also get other drops and for 0.00000000001% chance, a trash vaivora. Run last around 8-15min depends on player gears.
Is it Worth it?
im forced to say “YES” since this is the only way to get good silver, but let say a 10min run for 1.5m silver and with a minimum of 6 runs(1 daily + 5 tickets). You can only earn 9m in 1hr. Lets say you got another 4 alts eligible for high level cm. Will be a total of 15m for 1hr 40min…and thats per day. How many days can you buy an Archstone worth 500m? and after buying an Archstone, you can’t even use it unless you buy another one and craft it to Ark(unless you make a Kara bracelet first, its usable). And Crafting archstone/Kara requires other resources that also cost millions.
so Finaly answer is “not worth it”
When i say raid, Im implying to the 2 current hardest legend raids: Lepi and Glacia. You can get Rare Items like unique gears and Rare ingredients. Requires great coordination, decent gears, and good coordination since the mechanics are more deadly than the boss damage itself.
Is it Worth it?
As of the current state of the game, NO. Its not very rewarding. No silver, gear drops are purchasable in market. And it requires great amount of time to practice, and even the actual run. Need a fix party, which not everyone has, to make a good coordination. There is a chance of Archstone/Archfrag drop for like 0.00000000000001% or if you gamble in the end of the raid. This should be the most prioritized content in end game but people are stucked in CM since its easier, and its sure silver.
Dead content of a dying game.
Is it worth it?
GTW doesnt give you anything. Youll just get stomped if you are not in a Top guild. Its a one hour waste of time.
TBL doesnt give you anything also. Just those mercenary boxes that contains mercbadge, gear recipe, and with 0.000001% chance, a random boruta seal. You also get a Number rank in your name - top 100 players get a number in their names based on ranking, but in my server, just participate 1 round and youll get a number for sure since participant not even reaching 100 lol.
IMO, PVP should be the REAL end-game content like on other MMORPGs coz what else to do after you are already geared? Test your strength and compete using your skills versus other players. Use challenge mode to earn silver and Raid to get resources and make your best gear. Then battle with other players that probably as geared as you and win with sheer skills.
But yeah, ToS is not like that. Fck Skills, lets do brain-dead CM runs until we got bored and Quit.
