If I can recall enough things then lets goez…
I’ll tell you my story while I watch Maximillian Dood kill people in MKX.
I logged on to my main character; SR Appraiser BM. SR was moved to Scout and there were no classes that used my I have a +10 Lv 315 Practonium Pistol and Crossbow so I had to decide which one to sacrifice since IMC thinks my time spent making them doesn’t matter. I decided to change one of my alts to Appraiser and just go back to SR as a Scout. I couldn’t equip my Pistol though which was upsetting, it was marked as Archer weapon still so I sent a support ticket. I found my old Manamana in stash I used for now and a Event Catacomb 30 days. My inventory vanished forever though so I stopped playing till someone found a fix the next day on Steam forums.
I tried SR, BM, Outlaw first I think. Outlaw was pretty cool but I was sad the Bricks weren’t throwable from mounts cuz throwing bricks are one of my favorite weapons actually. SR ate through SP even faster than it did before~ still hate that change~ which made BM pretty useless since the skills weren’t worth wasting SP on over Lemoncon.
I wanted to use bricks cuz bricks are cool and all so I tried BM, Shinobi, Outlaw. I unlocked Shinobi long ago for my Nak Muay but since he can’t use it anymore I wanted to make use of it on someone so I tried it on my Scout using Class Unlock Box…
(…I also changed that Swordie back to Nak Muay but I thought they gave me those voucher boxes to relearn the class after reset… So I tried to use a Nak Muay voucher on him and it didn’t work cuz he still had it unlocked. So that was wasted.)
Anyways, Shinobi was a complete embarrassing (@the dev’s) disaster cuz the clone AI is horrendously broken. I made a video so me and my friend who was considering returning could make fun of it (he hasn’t returned yet). After lotsa testing in an intensively laggy server environment while shooing away random dueling request while I’m trying to relearn and re-equip gear I eventually went back to SR cuz I missed it …BM’s running and shooting animation looked stupid so how could it ever be cooler… I tried Enchanter for Buffz and Squire for SP sandwiches. Squire being unable to teleport to Camp anymore unless he was already in the zone deeply saddened me. Sandwiches were tedious to make and impossible with controller mode. I had to switch to mouse mode to use table… TIL a slice of bread weighs 1 pound in Korea.
Sandwiches helped a little… not enough that I wanted to go on. I realized I can build a camp for my SR using an alt so I dropped Squire and made an alt sandwich slave. Enchanter was great overall so I went back to Outlaw cuz it was a cool class. I had 3 Evasion skills now from Scout, SR and Outlaw but for some reason it all stacks but caps out at a number that makes the SR’s evasion buff a waste of points. Caracole kinda sucks anyways though so I’ll probably just leave it at that in case it’s a bug or something. The class setup is fun, at least till I run out of SP or overdose and die from the aspartame they put in SP Potions.
My Druid used to use Kabbalist and Krivis for perma werewolf, high HP and invulnerability for world bosses and SP restore for the insane Werewolf SP cost but Lycanthrope took a lot of abuse and was the final draw that made me quit after the patch that nerfed it to death. Well, none of that really changed for the better. Krivis damage felt weaker for some reason, idk. The buffs felt meaningless and Kabbage has no SP recovery from Ein Sof which horrified me. Dunno why they bothered keeping the lame Henge Stone concept. Transform is still a useless novelty that I’ll continue to waste points on anyways.
[edit addition] I wanted to try Kannushi on my Druid who used to be one and has it shown as unlocked in his stats. The game said no for some reason though. The notes said gender change wasn’t required if you unlocked it already and for some who replied to me in shout that was true~ they didn’t even need to be one before patch reset them apparently, but my character is specifically hated then and can’t. Mirrors and fragments didn’t exist on the crappy barely existent Market at the time like every crafting mat I ever need. Plus that stuff is expensive both now and back when only oracle needed them and not me. What a dumb shop design both before and after. And why do men have to pay extra to be a class? That’s downright sexist. If it was the other way around pink haired SJW women who don’t even play the game would flip their ■■■■.
I dumped everything for Druid, Oracle and Exorcist for now since it’s the hip and trendy thing to Death Sentence everything now. It’s okay but certainly not as fun as my old Druid by a landslide. I tried out the new Druid Carnivory skill at Lv.1 to see what it does but the minions did 0 damage to everything. So I maxed Sterea instead which felt very unfulfilling with how short the duration is so I dumped it for Lv.11 Carnivory to see if maybe Lv.1 is just bugged but haven’t tested it yet.
My Sorcerer, Featherbutt, Shadowmancer, Cryomancer is my next character I care about, which wasn’t really doable anymore. The Riding targeting issue on Sorc I complained about often was fixed, which surprised me, and Desmodus, Evocation and Salamion are actually really good now, but at the expense of Familiars since they replace the fire Salami as the 1 pointer.
Overall after testing a lot of classes on alts Sorcerer ended up being the one I felt most satisfied with. At least till during a dungeon run where Riding glitched me in the air unable to move, use skills, dismiss summon or anything at all to unstick me so that wasn’t very cool. I also still hate the anti-cat-fun Empty Spellbooks.
I added Featherbutt back to my Sorcerer, which didn’t need Shadowmancer to prevent Blood Sucking from being interrupted anymore which is nice. I hate spamming consumables so I like being able to heal myself while doing damage ofc. It has Synergy with Sorc and Necro still and being able to suck off any type of mob with the new debuff is a good improvement. Necromancer doesn’t really feel too different but I added it for the SPR and extra damage from Desmodus which may or may not work with Necro minions. Who knows.
I don’t really know what to do with my Nak Muay. He is Murmillo and Barbarian for the defense and AoEs and attack speed. It feels like there aren’t many synergies for him anymore. He just has extra attacks that I don’t have SP for. …and a really annoying Frenzy sound effect.
That’s probably enough for meow. I tried a buncha random crap on my alts but nothing was too exciting. They will just end up shop slaves. I only care about my first 4.
