Do You Hate Your Awakening? What Next?

30 posts in this topic

Posted

I haven't been awakened yet, I'm still softly sleeping on my bed of green mint and clovers, patiently awaiting next week.  I would like to think that I'll log in and instantly love my Awakening.

I do wonder though, what if I hate it?  Do you hate it and if you do - how did that affect your game experience?

It's physically impossible to hate your main's awakening. You will be like: Damn... I hate this thing... I have hundreds of hours and billions of silver in this character... Yaay I love this thing.

since hate is emotional not physical, sure I'll agree with your statements. However, I also can say that people are capable of hating anything and everything, even things they have never seen.

I didn't like my Sorc's awakening at all despite all of the time I put into her, so I rerolled a Kunoichi. :) Love this one!

Getting to 56 isn't too hard now, so if you have an alt you could always toss them up to 56 and try out others if you don't like yours and see which one you like the most.  As a preparation (if you haven't already!) I'd watch all of the videos and stuff you can on her awakening to make sure it's something you might be interested in, and understand the differences between the Wizard/Witch ones since from what I hear they play somewhat differently despite looking so similar.  If you've already done that and you're still excited, then I'd say your chances of enjoying it are pretty good!

I mained warrior before awakening and loved it to death. Such an amazing class design, despite it being super weak in pve and pvp.

Awakening came out, and the animation-cancelling, lightning fast, and versatile class that I loved became a six skill rotation of bland greatsword swings that facerolled anything in front of me with 0 thought.

Rerolled to Valkyrie and I'm in love with this class.

I love the maehwa playstyle until i got the awakening. I just find it slow. I started leveling a Ninja and Musa to try them out to see how I like them. i like them far more then Maehwa and now I'm trying to figure out which one I want to main until Dark Knight to try her out.

After seeing all the little kids trolling around with their awakening weapons ... well, seriously I will not troll around if I had H-Bombs!:D

Do Superheroes troll around because of their super power? Yes, they do if they went nuts.:ph34r:

And what will be the next step? Awakening V2? Or maybe sleeping V2?O.o

this.

The mae playstyle after awakening totally turned me off. It just feels slow and clunky.

 

I had a kuno alt which is now 56.5 or so and so much more fun. Just a shame i cant transfer the health training etc.

I hate my awakening because it's really gear dependant and even with TRI Full Boss and 190 AP i can't do some stuff , that orthers classes can do 

 

eg : Maehwa > Blader PvE + PvP with the same gear..

 

I'll reroll.

Holly crap its like i wrote this post. I was totally in the same boat as you. Loved pre-awakening warrior was fun high skill cap class and 2 days after awakening came i said **** it.

Rerolled ... and rerolled couple of times after to finally find my self enyojing Ninja.

 

It sucks ... really hard with this awakening weapons changing class meta totally ... its like selecting class to play at level one, till level 56 you will use a big axe and at 56 you get RNG class change and you can get anything from an OP bow to a freaking hand gun.

Go to Aakman temple without awakening, then come back and tell us your story.

I think you'll find it less superfluous then.

I mained a Maehwa for a long time...I played other classes as well though because I get bored of playing the same character all the time, but I would always spend significantly more time on my maehwa than any other character. now when the awakening came out for the maehwa, I absolutely hated the awakening. I tried to give it a chance and adapt, but it changed the play style of the character that was very different from what I found fun about the maehwa and it was not enjoyable for me. So...I'm a Sorc main now because when the awakening came out for the sorc I instantly liked it and found it fun. I miss the maneuverability of the maehwa compared to the sorc, but I am finding ways to compensate. I am going to give the dark knight a good tryout and if I like it I may switch to that, but for now I'm a sorc....looking at all the Zarka blades that have gone up on the market recently it would suggest I'm not the only one that abandoned the maehwa after the awakening came out.
