Valencia is broken. Fix it. game getting stupid as is

99 posts in this topic

Am sure ppl already talked about this but this is my experience with this broken part of the game. Am lvl 58. 458 ap&dp. When  I have work I only grind for 30 min to use the 200%, daily buff. I go to bashim in 30 min I get 1.5-1.6 exp. About 1.3 - 1.4 trash and some weapon /armor that I npc so overall like 2m MAX silver and 1-2 scrolls and if am super lucky I get the agility or precision magic crystal it's so rare tho. 


Then I tried sausan. Same 30 min 1.4 - 1.5 exp. 6-8 m trash and weapon/armor drops . 1-2 books. And altar scrolls if super lucky as it's rare. 

Srsly devs why this broken mechanic in the game that force ppl to NOT play your new places that you add to the game. Why bother going to the desert when you can get same exp and way way more silver. 


Fix the exp and drop rate in Valencia pls ppl ONLY go there cause they have (leave me alone personality) and don't wanna spend time pvp... In sausan and piratea. Just like me

Falls on deaf ears mate, they won't change anything at all. You and many of us wondered same crap while Valencia is such poor place to go even with rare drops it still crap both in EXP and Coin. I recently can't do the content there due to the content randomly crashing in the desert all the time lost to many crystals tried to get problem fixed but its all waste of time.

Its actually the same stats as in KR, as in in KR some high levels still grind at sausan and pirates. Not saying its good or bad, all im saying is its not broken, just dumb.

Did we all gloss over the fact that they are retuning the mob densities/ drop rates for the most popular grind spots in Valencia?  Cause they are, source, look at the most recent kr patch notes. Which means they understand the problem and are taking steps to fix it, which means we don't need make even more posts about this because it is being addressed.

How's that balance working out for you?

Basilisks with the changes are actually decent XP, and you have a chance at bassi belt, and they changed how the basilisk belt stuff works so you can turn any of the 3 pieces into the other pieces via conversions. Alot of people on KR are liking it now, along with cadry.

what does this have to do with my post that you quoted? Is your salt now pouring into other threads because you are that petty? 

Get. A. Life.

Speaking as someone who works on a game and does balancing. Shit like this is a lot more difficult to balance than what you may think it is. No self respecting developer will ever panic fix balance related issues because some child is having a temper tantrum.

You clearly have no clue what you're talking about. Valencia region was released in July 2015. The loot and silver difference(compared to other maps) have been a problem for a very long time. On KR server people also go Pirates or Sausan and skip Valencia, for over a year now.

Recently they did start to buff mob density on a few spots in in Valencia part 1. But it took 14-15 months for PA to slowly start making a dead region more interesting. It's the complete opposite of a panic fix.

it needs to be 2x xp 2x or even 3x loot. at least the trash , right now pirates and sausan are so far ahead in $ made it's dumb.
give it even more loot and xp in the actual desert area where you get debuff

Indeed, it's a calm and calculated fix as there no reason the rush it. So you clearly haven't got a clue about what I was talking about.

It falls to the classic saying "If it ain't broke, don't fix it.".

It's okay for me because I realize I don't own the game, I didn't create it, nor am I helping develop it. While they appreciate feedback, it doesn't dictate how they develop their game.

Also, did you ever think the reason why they haven't changed anything is because they don't want to and are happy with how Valencia is?

Try to ask yourself why game that looks like this, with content like this... Game that in a lot of aspects is true next gen mmo is average in popularity on KR server AT BEST (and im being generous here with word average)?

Wtf are you even talking about... Korean mmo players are different then west players, they not move away from mmo without good reason... Try to look at it this way- if Riot would remove all ults from champions in League of Legends game and add ult to one or two champions every 2 weeks how long do you think LOL as game would survive? Total unbalance in pvp for whole year... And thats what we have with awakenings... There are thousands of mmo on market, but NOT EVEN ONE have similiar strategy with awakenings as BDO... Ofc there is a lot badly balanced mmo on market, but NOT EVEN ONE  of them have sth like 100% boost to dmg on few classes and nothing on rest... Cause it would remove that mmo from market and im really curious how bdo players can be this forgiving..

Probably because some people understand that this is only a game and don't make a bigger deal out of it than there should be. ;)

The problem is, make Valencia too lucrative and then it just creates an even bigger gap for the people playing catch up to the strongest that CAN grind there. They need to link drops to the color of levels. eg 5+ levels = 50% drop rates.

*Edit* So yeah, I don't think future mobs need buffing, I think past mobs need nerfing so much so that it is not worth old players returning which will naturally mean going to the new areas is worth it.
