Level on Olivia or Buy New Account?

19 posts in this topic

Posted

Ok, this is a strange question but I'd like to know what you all think I should do if I plan to keep playing the game for the long term.

I've had the game now for about 3 weeks and have a 56 Witch, 55 DK, and a 39 Ranger.  I started out on the Olivia servers but wanted to try out some of the boss fights on my Witch.  Little did I know that I couldn't go back there to continue leveling.   Also, I've changed over to the DK being my main character and have been just farming until awakening comes out.   As a "casualish" player, would it be more efficient for me to just pay the $10 for a new account so I can level my DK there to the 58.99?  Right now my current character only has 127 AP/ 179DP.

Like Melenium mentioned it's fine to continue level on the normal channels. I don't think it would be worth just to start over just because you cannot access the olivia channels anymore, you can level just fine on regular servers it just might take a bit longer (plus you would have to buy gear all over again)..

stay in normal server with your old account...

if u are a casual player you can use +200% buff and +40% every day .. plus bonus on the weekend...

on the main account i think you have money and blackstone so , at the end , it is easier than you think

Thanks folks. That is what I figured but with the lack of caffeine right now the other idea of buying a new account sounded something reasonable

Yeah, I made a DK last Monday and she's 53 now, just playing in the evenings in the normal channels.

I seem to level fast enough on the normal channels when I put my mind to it, so I never felt bad that I can't access the Olvia channels.  From what I hear, they seem to be pretty crowded as well.

I'm super casual and my DK is already 53. i just use the 200%, play for 30 mins and log off. Even if you are relatively new,  I'm sure having your higher level characters, all that knowledge and money makes it worth sticking with the old account.

Although there is something to be said for having all the gear and money on your old account, the exp bonus is amazing. I would only recommend buying the new account if you can dedicate a LOT of time over the next weeks to grinding. Like 4 hours+ a day 5 days a week. Idk, if I was in your situation, and if I could convince my wife to let me dedicate that much time to the game (no chance) I would buy the new account.

Am I reading this correctly? It locked you out of the Olvia channels because you switched to a normal channel? But you still have a week left before having played for a month? That's not supposed to happen.

That is probably what happened then.  I will say though, those channels are pretty much cancer at times so part of me is glad not to be there.  Some folks there are...."rude?"

And non-stop political talk.

yeah thats what the whole game would look like if it was free to play, I know that $10 isnt alot but apparently its been enough

I have an alt account on the Olvia channels and the amount of spam in channel chat etc is out of control, alot of desperate guilds

The salt and trolls in channel chat is the reason I just have a tab for whispers and guild chat. Less of an eyesore.

lol actually had a story told to me once

dont wanna name names but he bought his account when it was around level 55, had nothing but 2x non pri witch earrings, 2x pri mark of shadows and duo glad belt and tri Bares necklace. Bought it around the start of Mediah, he played the game for months after months. Grind and grind and grind. Now he has Tri Cresent, Tri Witch Earring, Duo Ogre, TET Kzarka / Dandelion / Nouver and Tri Tree. Guess what? The original account holder took over the account again and there is nothing he can do about it.

so what you're saying is OP should sell their account and claim it back after 1-2 years for massive gains

Buying a new account means starting from level 1 again.  Is that really what you want to do? I still don't get this ish, bruh.
