Leveling is too GRINDY early

427 posts in this topic

Don't understand why they gave us russian client like leveling... in what other game do you run out of quests at level 15... the game just isn't designed for a slow leveling curve just super pointless to grind things at level 15. I cant imagine how grindy it's gonna be 50-60 where it actually matters and where the game begins.. 1-50 being the tutorial.

 

Can we have korean build with less punishing PK system, pretty please?

because a few people complained in the forums and they said "oh we agree..." 

Pandering the vocal minority.

This is setting up to be the first KR MMORPG I have played that is more grindy in the Western release than in the KR release. More grind hasn't worked in the past in MMOs in the western market, I see no reason why it would with this one.

Agree...

I don't mind the grind, but it being this hard to level this early is a little silly.

The lower-grind should be changed. The grind at 50+ should definitely stay. 

Look at gw2. Steamroll to 80 and we're done. That sucks even more.

No. It really isn't. You must be staying in one area longer than intended instead of continuing in your journey.

It's not hard, I'm already almost lvl 30. In a day that's incredibly quick. Don't be spoilt, you won't get to appreciate the different areas and content, you'll be in the same areas a lot once you hit 50.

You are forced to stay in one area longer than intended because you need to grind to get quests for the next area. That typically means the progression is off.

You can't continue too well if you are under leveled. It tried and ran into purps. Not good enough with tamer to do that yet.

Its less about time and more about having the right content to do this in a meaningful way. The quests are meant to come steadily as you level instead of you running out of quest and being forced to grind to be the correct level to get quests again. You can grind all you want 50+.

Hmm grinding is never good (have n't played long yet thou), I would n't mind if level is going faster, more time to check out other characters.

It makes the game look poorly designed when you run out of things to do super early into the game, i'm seeing a lot of people confused in global chat...

Confusion in beta chat is always expected, but some people just troll the chat.

Earlier while I was online I caught a glimpse of someone in chat asking how to install the beta.  Like, wut?

If this mmo wants a healthy playerbase the last thing it need is a grind within a grind to even open up the game.

Getting to 50 should be quick and easy without much hassle, right now a ton of people are very scared for what lies beyond 50 / 55 and might not even bother buying / playing the game.

 

I have real concerns about people ditching this mmo before it even begins and thats not a good sign.

That is true but there were genuinely confused people as well. And sadly because of the energy usage to talk I couldn't really help people as much as I normally try to do. I had to be selective about responding and had to try and cram three answers in a single reply. Made it tough to help people and give them some direction to get past things.

I think what player forget is "this is a beta", not the finished version.

Finding the balance of play is why we are doing this. Yes it can be grindy but use the time to learn the game, explore the world, sit back and enjoy and don't rush to finish the game in 5 mins.

You can shape the game by giving your feed back, not just "it's too GRINDY" explain why you think it is and how you think it could be inproved.

 

Hoping to see you in the game

The only people that complain of such ignore what it is like post 50. There is a reason level 60 is a rarity in KR. Also PvE making leveling take more time does not make it harder.

I think they also forget that this is a sandbox game. It's not supposed to guide you through the game. You are supposed to create your own path, story, legend. I am even surprised it has such a long story quest. Personally, I always have quests to do though I am more interested in contribution quests because those are important. Otherwise I just do whatever, whenever. Fishing, exploring, gathering, can't wait to start farming.
