    Liquid, what class are you? Dark Elves aren't too difficult as long as you know how to approach them. Being a little higher level helps, as well. The aerial recover and wakeup+attack moves that all classes get are very useful for dark elves.

    So Minotaur Nest is pretty much a DPS race vs Minotaurs, like a couple hundred of the annoying geese. On the plus side the Quest that introduces the Nest is Hilarious
    Dance Time!

    I need to grind for minotaur passes before I even get to try the nest. Sadness.

    Thinking of getting in on this for kicks. How does it play in terms of lag? (aka will a second delay or so make combat super hard?)

    Honestly, not really worth it, everything just has inflated ho values and it is literally a single room with mob waves. Boring to play and the rewards are nerfed or broken so that farming enough mats to make a single epic Item would take months.

    So I've heard. Thus have I instead updated Vindictus and have started a new Evie to make a scythe Evie. Huzzah. Level 10!

    Warrior. I used my wake-up and dodge rolls more effectively during these last few runs and found myself performing much better. I would sometimes get knocked into a corner and juggled for a bit, being unable to ever really hit the ground, but that happened less and less as time went on. Now I make sure all of those stripper elves are to one side of me, then I use some pokes here and there to make sure they're grouped up together before I lay the smackdown.

    In DFO, I've mastered the art of mobbing shit together in order to avoid having something further back hit me in the middle of a combo. That inevitably leads to the group of enemies up front ripping the ass of your pants off and taking a dump all over your butt cheeks in a really emasculating hazing ritual. Getting used to that(the mobbing, not the pooping) on a 3D battlefield took some time.

    I'm a Sword Master now and, like a complete hesher idiot, I sold my best greatsword before reading the requirements of the SM skills. Go Team Indica.

    Kinda off-topic, but did they ever fixed the terrible lag between dungeon hosts and the rest of the party? I'd give the game another shot if they did.

    Anyone else not really enjoy the 'spent the day on the floor' style PvP? Seemed like I was the only Elementalist against unending hordes of melee with various swords, maces, and axes. Mostly swords.

  • RialeRiale I'm a little slow Registered User regular
    Yeah, it's no coincidence that the dragon nest PvP tournament in korea was 90% warrior classes. PvP balance doesn't seem to be a high priority.

    Acrobat works out fairly well in PvP, so I'm not too ruffled. It doesn't really seem worth doing for me though, aside from wanting to stroke off my ego.

    I'm hardly a pro player of anything, and I usually achieve some degree of success in the PvP venues of different games, but DN just didn't seem to have 'it' for me. 'It' being that PvP magic that sucks me in like DaoC or WoW or even the first month of WAR. In DN I get juggled in the air or on the floor until death the second my air recovery is down. It has that same sort of feeling vanilla WoW PvP did back before the fear nerf, when you would die to like 2 people beating on you while you lost control of your character until death. It's not very engaging to me. Dunno, guess we'll see what comes down the pipeline but right now I think a break is in order until there are some more things to do in the game.

    As an aside- is it true what I hear that the Minotaur Nest was vastly overtuned in terms of health and difficulty and nerfed in terms of drops compared to the overseas versions? The videos I watch of the Korean version seem to actually get drops.

    it wouldn't surprise me if they retuned it in order to try and get people to play longer with less content. nexon has been known to do stuff like that in the past. right now I'm just waiting for them to raise the level cap to 32 and add saint's haven, at which point I will gladly come back.

    Pretty much, yes. Waiting on new content. I really do enjoy the game and I've considered leveling some other character on the side, but Acrobat is pretty addicting and Im not sure I'd care for anything else.

    It's def my favourite enhancement system in an mmorpg, it starts getting more expensive once you start upgrading blues/epics past lvl 15 (which isn't a bad thing imo) but at early levels, the easy upgrades + lots of equip drops make it worthwhile to try.

    Often in games, it's just so expensive and risky to upgrade, even at low levels, that upgrading becomes something of a painful, reluctant gamble.

  • Big Red TieBig Red Tie beautiful clydesdale style feet too hot to trotRegistered User regular
    yeah even at 15+ crude onyxes arent that expensive

    just that they're all in stacks of 20 and you can't buy one by one

    Cherry Credits have some issues with the servers, it's the 4th time down for "maintenance" past 2 days I reckon.

    It's fun though, like a 3D beat em up rpg. My interest in games like TERA has gone up a notch.

    Is there any real difference between the CC and Nexon version right now?

    steam_sig.png
  • RialeRiale I'm a little slow Registered User regular
    I don't know Cherry Credits, but Nexon is a pretty established american distributor, so if I was going to buy cash points I would feel more comfortable with them, as they're a known company.

    Hah. Right. Nexon is a horrible company.

    As a warning to everyone with a Nexon account (especially if you've ever used the account to play DFO), make sure you constantly check your NX purchases on the website. There was recently a database link on Nexon's side and a large number of DFO accounts were hacked. Including mine. About 50 avatar pieces, and $20 in NX gone. Nexon knows about the issue, but they still haven't done anything about it. Only sending form e-mails so far saying, "we have a lot of tickets."

    Mabinogi has been exploited bunches too, but at least accounts themselves haven't been ransacked. Yet.

    Anyways, it's pretty much entirely accounts that have played DFO at some point, but I don't doubt this issue will bleed into other games soon enough.

    Dragon's Nest is new and somewhat popular at the moment, so Nexon is actually paying attention to it, for now. But give it a year.

    Anyways, TL;DR -- Change your passwords.

    yeah nexon kinda blows, glad my dfo account hasn't been hacked
    however. even if it was, i could only lose like 10m in cash, since i invest most of my money and lock everything

    well, I know their customer support sucks, but I've never had any of my nexon accounts broken into, and I've had no problems on the few occasions I've bought NX cash. I'm more concerned about getting ripped off at the source by the company rather than hacked as I usually don't keep any cash shop money in my accounts. I just buy it and immediately spend it.

    Thanks, downloading now.

    Does SEA stand for South-East Asia? I guess it'll be a lagfest but oh well lets see what the hubbub is about.

    actually i heard the SEA version was more stable than NA
    but there might be less people and content

    Yer ~ it was originally supposed to be Global but they changed it to SEA...I honestly have no idea why.

    I don't even...just...why?
    At least the dual log-in and gold spammer issues are being looked into.
    I guess.

    I really do enjoy this game, I just wish the people running it weren't so dumb.

  • AldoAldo Hippo Hooray Registered User regular
    So hey the SEA version actually works well here in the EU, although I'm a bit worried about wonky hitboxes. Maybe it's an issue with the morning star weapons, but sometimes it seems like hits take half a second to register. Nothing game-breaking so far, but I can imagine this fucking me up later on.

    One thing I do really hate is how shitty this game controls with my Xbox360 controller. The game's really made with KBM set-up in mind, but it still supports controllers, even though it's bloody impossible to turn around with them.

  • OtakingOtaking Registered User regular
    I'm having a blast on this. It's actually a good and polished F2P with a ton of charm and humor. I'm Trevane, priesting on NA Elena if anyone wants to go bash some stuff with some support hit me up.

  • chocoboliciouschocobolicious Registered User regular
    Controller works fine as long as you get used to clicking in the stick to do a 180. Trying to turn around completely manually is terrible. also the archer kinda sucks with a controller. Acrobat works fine, so does swordsman and sorc from what I've played

    yes they are, works quite well actually. I'm still not satisfied about the controls, I wish Left Stick would just move my whole character around instead of having to fuck around with two thumbs on sticks just to make a 90° turn while also having to quickly do an attack. If my shoulders weren't hurting I'd be back to KBM straight away.

    At any rate, the game sure has a lot of charm, but I haven't found any need to group up. I can easily solo everything thrown at me and I think other players would just get in the way of my combo-ticker. :?
