Returning after 6 months to play DK

8 posts in this topic

Posted

Haven't played in about 6 months but decided to come back for DK.  Trying to decide if I should reactivate this week when DK releases or wait until around March 14th so I can get the free DK slot and also possibly give myself a couple weeks with the awakening weapon on the Olvia channels.  Is there any indication as to how well DK's solo preawakening?  I'd be transferring over some decent gear from my warrior so I wouldn't be completely starting from scratch.

if you're coming back just for the dark knight you are going to be disappointed, the rest of the game has not changed.

I just came back a few weeks ago and I'm really loving it.  I remember why I was so excited for the game years ago when I first started reading about it.  I too play on the Olvia channels (for now) and instead of the RNG that I hated, I just buy most of my gear.  At PRI, then I do the FS plan and haven't had much trouble.  The game is very fun and with a good guild, it's probably one of the most fun MMO's I've played.

Alot has changed dont listen to people saying it hasn't.

RNG is still a ----- (just buy your gear if you hated enchanting before) and you are still going to grin because well its a korean mmo.

Well at least DK is beautiful and fappable lol. If you are coming back just to play casually then why not go for it. The economy is shittier than 6 months ago though.

I've recently had really good success buying +15 gear and taking it to DUO without much issue, Even got a couple to TRI without much of a headache (although I've been saving cron stones since launch and blew through all of them to do it...)  I think it could be possible to turn a profit even by buying +15 gear and bumping it to DUO, then selling it again.  It cost me less to make my 2 TRI pieces than it would have to just buy them as DUO, but again, I popped a ton of crons to get there, so who knows... (1 failure on one TRI and 2 failures making the other).

I watch the enchant success/failures almost constantly while I am online and I see 15-30 failures for every 1 success for TET, so you won't be finding me going for TET.  Once I get all TRI I'll save up to buy a TET or two and pass my TRI on to an alt...  Right now I have a couple PRI that I swap around on alts when I'm not grinding for levels, otherwise they all wear failstack gear :)

 

As far as the rest of the game is concerned, I've been playing NA since CBT and no where else, I've had my love losses with this game, but my time and financial investment keep me going, that and I know I'll end up starting from scratch on a game I won't like as much if I leave...  It is hard to give up on something where I've been doing it daily for probably 340 out of the last 365 days (once we hit the 1 yr mark)...  for average daily time spent I work the most, followed by sleep, followed by BDO and there are people who have been playing 4-6 months that have progressed farther than me in everything in game.  I haven't been like this with a game since I played EQ, and that ate up 6+ years of my life.  Even with WoW I only played on guild RAID nights and maybe 1 or 2 other days, with BDO, it is the last thing I do each day and the first thing.

I agree with some of the others, I am less than impressed with what I have seen of the Dark Knight, but mine is made and ready to go, unfortunately I'll be a bit behind the rest of the world, as Wed is the worst day of the week for me to play, so I may not get past 30 minutes with her on the first day.
