Awakened Classes...what?

6 posts in this topic

Posted

Hey, I'm new here, and after reaching level 30 in about 3 hours...I realized that I'm going to need to make up my mind on what class I want to play end game MUCH sooner that I thought I would..

 

I was looking into playing Valkyrie and I like the paladin-esque feel, healing, buffing, sword and shield, holy light, all of that hoopla, but then I saw that her awakened class ditches the sword, and takes up a humongous and hideous lance that's clearly too large for her little frame to hold and they wen't WAY overboard on the styling on the one in the class video. I'm a very simplistic person when it comes to design. I'd much rather see a plain broadsword that a giant flaming dragons claw witha a moving eye in the hilt that has blood dripping off of it...I like simple weapons and designs. A plain-jane spear is the best, a lance is alright, a Ginormous golden lance that was forged from the roots of the tree of Yggdrasil that is 12 times larger than the hero wielding it...that's f---ing stupid IN MY OPINION and makes me not want to play a Valkyrie AT ALL.

 

If I played a Valkyrie up to end game, would I be at a HUGE disadvantage if I didn't go with the class awakening? If I DO unlock the class awakening, do I have to use the new weapon? (I mean, come on...an archer that doesn't have a bow? Why even call it an archer anymore?)

 

Are there simple looking lances, that are small-ish and plain, or will I be stuck with some gaudy, basic b----, out of place POS?

 

Archer awakens and is no longer an archer?

Berzerker awakens and is now Mega Man?

 

Is there no room for end game archers in BDO?

Awakening skills hit wayyyy harder than non

 

you can choose to swap freely between awakened and non even in the middle of a combo.

First i would advise you to slow down and start doing quests first. Levelling in BDO goes with mob grinding. So if you currently grind mobs like a madman you will reach the higher levels too fast, resulting that you're undergeared and are an easy prey for those who are geared. You see, at level 50 you will be flagged for PvP. And there are those idiots around who make a sport of hunting newbies, killing you over and over again. Now you can decide to stick into towns, but for the awakening quests you need to get outside anyway.

As for awakening; those weapons are different yes then the ones which they start with. But you still will have those other weapons as well. You just get an extra one, but then a powerfull one. And yes, a valkyrie gets a big bad lance. Almost all the awakening weapons are rather big. A sorcereress will get a big scythe, making her the grim reaper. Ranger will indeed get a sword, a tamer gets a big staff, etc. Koreans, Japanse and Chinese seems to like them big. For the simple European it feels way out of context. It is as it is however. I don't really mind myself. My main is a sorceress and i find the scythe interesting.
But what would you like to do? Are you gonna participate in PvP? Or are you more a PvE player?

How did you Level up that fast? Currently downloading BDO, played back when it was released and i was just fishing and got never really into leveling my Character. I might Level up a Account to 30 because i still have a guest pass and i want to get the Polar bear...

I would recommend the same as candesco said above about taking your time, completing quests and enhancing your gear if you're still on your first character. If you're going to level a few characters and just want to speed through some levels to gain skills and play around to see which you prefer, I would recommend this guide:

Again it's just a case of doing a bit of research and seeing which you think you would prefer to play. I have a lvl 56 witch which is awakened and has the awakened skills and weapon but 90% of the time I still use the basic skills because that's how I prefer to play that class. Watch a few Youtube videos to see how others play the awakened classes and just give it a go but you can still play the class without the awakening skills :)

It's easy, play on the double XP server, then use an XP scroll, then use a GM xp buff, and then use your daily double XP. Find a spot with slightly higher mobs and grind. I had a house WAY back in the day before I left too, so I logged on and got some 349 million coins from a house fund? Still not sure what that is, but I get about 700k each day from it and still have NEVER even spent a single penny.
