Yes it's not like most servers and not like what you're used to, but that's why those servers that you used to play are gone, exp'ing is a part of the game, and if it doesn't consume SOME time then players will get bored of just farming and PK'ing, yes it will be fun for a while but after that it just gets boring doing the same shit everyday, the way this server is setup you can choose to exp, farm and or PK, I see plenty of people non stop pking at lvl 61 and shit, atleast be thankful it's not like oldschool ko where you have to exp for a month to get 70. The reason why moon got 70 so quick is cause he got a sharer, if you want to do the same do it at your own risk, no one else is really caught up cause we'd prefer to have our own characters, so it's really up to you.
You can complain exp is hard, rates are hard, pk is hard, but at the end of the day no ones making you play, so don't go giving the server a bad name just cause you can't compete with the players.
Myself I can enjoy this server cause I got nice team of 7 guys that we can do whatever we want, we don't geek with lvls, or peekay all the time. We just do everything in some ratio 40% farm 40% exp and 20% pk of the time we are online. And we really enjoy it that way. Even if we are only 65 lvls. But don't tell me that exp is what is troubling you, 3 slot trolls with full party in cz I got from 64 - 65 in 55 mins. It will consume way much time from you if you will try to make your gear +6 +7 then getting 70 straight. That is ofcourse hipotheticaly, you always need gear to exp better too.
Let me tell you that I'm working 4-6 hours everyday now too and still getting a piece or 2 of some new item every day and at least 1 lvl up.
And there were a lot of people like you and you can still see them on ranks they are lvl 61 62 with no gear left cause they burned everything and quited but the population remains 250+ so you can use your freedom of speech all you want here in this topic I don't know what your aim is here, maybe to disattract people to try the server? Trust me man, the ones that don't like farm server will simply not play it, the ones they do will still join.
On the server topic tho: Server is running smoother everyday with no laggs pking is getting better, cooldown on archer's styx is 25 minutes :P which is OK cause archer still rapes the stunned duffed guys in like 1 second with good combo (make sure you go hp build tho I strongly recommend it) As of yesterday I have experienced smaller lagg periods for no more then 10 minutes. Server is getting in order and is definetly worth the try !
Ahh well im not dealing with that shit burnt every item i had +6-+7 with trina lol heal breaker, shard iron bow chitins lol Glacier Erenion
If anyone wants a lvl 52 rouge account pm me
I played at start, lagged like hell, died like 20 times from lag. Decided to quit.
My friend told me lag was fixed, I made a new char, first 30 min was smooth, after that, lag everywhere. Even the lag was lagging -.-
I don't know if it is just my location ( New york city ), but I really can't play like that.
well.. I give up on this server. I'm fine with the downtime, the lag, etc.etc.etc. but the community is useless.
i joined a total of 3 supposedly english speaking clans on this server since it started. every time i log back in im out of the clan, and the members have left the server. 3 times in a couple days? the fuck is that.
the only realistic way to make any money in the game is BUS farming; anyone with premium can npc them for 300k each instead of 200k. so.. i farmed 150 bus on a warrior thinking that 30m wouldnt be too bad. premium users would have made 45m. that doesnt seem stupid to you? premium = better drop rate, and 50% higher npc sell rate. so that works out to about 75% faster income. int he time i can make 100m, they'd make 150 - 175m. thought donors didnt have anything that made them op?
and when i say main source of income, im talking about while playing solo since even just Stone Golems hit me for 900 - 1200 out of 2350 or so hp.. i mean what am i going to do, slide and use Cleave, and hope it doesnt fail *every* time?
but regardless, the real reason im quitting is the shear lack of compitent players. as far as i can tell there's likely atleast 1 english speaking clan human side (though i dont know who it'd even be) but since seeking party is down, clans keep to themselves even more; no one wants a lvl 56 warrior when they all finished xping together and are like 65 - 70, they just want to go pk and do boss runs/farm shell and chitin for their clannies.
Lets be realistic. 50k xp on beast solo.. about 48k while farming lamias, maybe like 65k on ash knights (havent checked since like 45). thats just not going to cut it. "you could do cz apos" - sure you could, with a full party and maybe a 2nd party beside you incase the orcs raid you. i tried lvling on apos and deru and have yet to have even a 30 minute uninterupted window where lvl 65 sins dont show up and take my party apart then camp the spot.
Nice try, anyways. Guess this isnt Russian's fault (though the relaunch that was caused by some major exploits not being fixed during the beta probably helped a good number of people quit). oh and inb4 wiseman tells me "if you dont want to play here leave" or whatever he's been using as his campaign speach thus far.
In a nutshell let me help you figure things out.
Don't join a random clan, find one with credibility, premium doesnt raise drop rates, drop rates remain the same, if you want to make money your best bet is to kill huangas, the mage scrolls (fire blast, etc) npc for 300K and u get bus from them, in a exp party you get 2x the exp than you do solo. Find a few ppl to play with and you'll be set, you don't need premium to keep up, you don't need a big clan to keep up, I think my clan is proving that pretty well granted half of us do have premium but others dont, and we're only 8 members.
