Does the game get more challenging?

19 posts in this topic

Posted

Hey Everyone,

So I just picked this game up and I got two classes to around level 21.  However I noticed that, at least thus far, the game has been ridiculously easy.  I mean, I almost have to try to die.

I like the combat in this game, but if the difficulty doesn't get ramped up at higher levels, I'm going to be bored I think.  So for people that have higher level characters...does the game get more challenging?  If so, do you know around what level I can expect the difficulty to ramp up?

 

Thanks!

pve is always easy and pvp is entirely gear based / rng, this game isn't the game you want when it comes to challenges.

This game is based on the premise that dying is baaaad. You can lose crystals, XP, and if you have negative karma, enchants on your armor and weapons.  So dying is not something that you should be doing on a regular basis (with some exceptions)

What colour are the mobs you are fighting? Maybe go for red with a dab of purple?

What a strange question... An mmo can be as difficult or as hard as you want it, just go for higher leveled mobs if the ones you're fighting are too easy. If you have only just started playing, which i doubt (suspect troll), your starting gear would have you struggle against red or purple mobs. To say it's too easy is showing a lack of understanding of the games mechanics, as death comes with very harsh consequences. To anyone that talks that rubbish after fighting in Valencia with average gear, you're lying, but if you're top tier geared, then the pain you went through gearing up has paid off, but there's more on the way, and your gear will again be sub-par

To make the game more challenging, Daum Games has introduced the new revolutionary component to MMO gaming called server laggggggggggggg and dsync.  Instead of making the game better they have managed to make the servers worse.

yes over time, the servers get shittier and shittier until you have to first combat being able to log in, then the lag. 

 

good luck because no matter how much money you throw at it, you wont win

In your case: depends on the class. Ranger for example have it horrible boring, melees maybe challenging or insane or pointless.

Groups grind easier.


For the rest of the game: You should play something another.

I've only found one mob (Basilisks in Valencia) with a "fun" and challenging fight mechanic.

Very cool animations how they slither along the ground and their "root".

If you're looking for actual answers and information, i urge you to avoid this forum at all cost.

Try reddit, anywhere else.

Short answer : the game's challenge doesn't reside in basic PvE against regular mobs (this is not really new with most MMOs tho, right ?), especially considering they made it easier to allow new players like yourself not to lag too far behind.

The proper answer to your question is yes, the game gets more challenging as you level up. If it will be enough for your taste it's only up to you to say.

Don't mind the other boys answering, they were too in a hurry to prove(?) that they are l33t to realize that the question isn't if the game is challenging but if it gets more challenging. Obviously the PvE isn't as challenging as other MMOs, but you will not enjoy dieing after level 50, either, so you should find a certain degree of thrill in PvE too.

My dog can get to level 21, so there's that; however, no. The only challenging mob is other players.

Fighting AI monster is no chalenge.

Upgrading your gear is THE chalenge in this game.

So ignoring all of the complete and utter wankers above with the toxic "lmao so easy" attitude, especially since people tend to forget what it was like starting out:

Initially at level you're at it is rather easy. One you hit areas beyond Calpheon in the west, the difficulty may ramp up. Abandoned Monastery is a huge point of difference in difficulty initially. You'll start to have to pay attention to enemy attack patterns a lot more from there on out.

This follows through to Mediah to places like the Helm outpost, and the Elric Shrine, where particular enemies are likely to take off massive chunks of health if you get caught in a swing or a heavy projectile (High Priests come to mind for example).

It'll even out as you improve your gear and develop better muscle memory.

Valencia so far is the most arduous if only because of the sheer amount of health some enemies have. Crescent Guardians in particular are a pet hate of mine, because they can be utterly relentless in their attacks.

So short answer, yes.

If you want to feel worthless and severely underpowered go fight world and field bosses

A funny thing happened on the way to making an immense world with no level cap. ;)

So they made the mobs for most of the first 45 levels pretty easy. Especially if you get some silver and buy better weapons and armor. The idea, really, is not to play the first 50 levels, but the last 10.

In 99% cases, mobs are harder and smarter than players :)
