    Oh my God I'm in just to join the Maralago Raiders.

    Totally. I can’t take credit for it as my buddy came up with it, but I am just hoping we have enough characters available for name to make it work.

    So, with Tower of Fantasy being more like a MMO, there appears to be specific servers. If people here are gonna try it out, might be worthwhile to pick one ahead of time?

    Also current plan is to make the clan Maralago Raiders on Nightfall server. Nightfall may end up pretty crowded though as I’ve seen a lot of other guilds talking about it, so backup is Tempest or Radiant depending on queues and ping.

    Edit: missed that. Putting it on the new page.

    Yeah, I'll try to post here asap after launch either way, but I think this is still accurate as our working plan. As with all MMO's its a balancing act as we want an active healthy server pop that can survive the inevitable after-launch decline, but we don't want to deal with queues in the short-term (and I want to make sure I get my name!). They also haven't provided any more detailed info on server locations (east vs west coast etc), so we might have to play it by ear if we get unlucky.

    My luck with the weapon banner continues.

    Took me 141 wishes, apparently, but I got my Yoimiya and Thundering Pulse. Managed to avoid losing a 50/50 for Yoimiya and....is it still a 50/50 with the weapon banner? Technically a double 50/50, right? (First one to see if you get a featured weapon, second to pick which one you get) Honestly didn't expect it but I will take it.

    So now I'm ready to go into Sumeru with the power of Fire.

    For weapon banner, it's first 75/25, then 50/50 to see which one of the two you'll get. So 37.5% chance to get your desired 5* weapon.

    It's live early! Ended up on Radiant, 3000 person queues on Tempest and Nightfall. UID added to signature

    If I'm reading the UI right, I seem to hovering around 45-50ms ping so that seems fine to stay here. I'm hesitant to jump out and try something else, since who knows what the queue is like now lol!

    Edit2:
    Ha, my buddy tried to jump on after me and the queue is now at 2000 for Radiant. Hopefully it clears out quickly!

    Oh yessssss, good old day 1 MMO experience. Server errors and queues galore. Brings back a lot of old memories for sure.

    I'll check again tomorrow I suppose.

    Oh ok cool. Maybe it's just the Steam and Epic launchers that were delayed.

    Oh man, I won the gacha. Got Crow on my guaranteed 30 pull on the reg banner. Then managed a double nemesis/king on the limited banner. Nemesis first so I should still have the guarantee next time too. I got so excited I shut down my phone instead of screenshotting though :(. Honestly my first three pulls is probably the best dps set in the game right now, not sure how I managed that.

    Anyways, clan is made and you’re all welcome to join. I do have to say the combat is way better than genshin but the tiny ui is killing my old eyes.

    Edit:
    Not the money shot, but at least some proof!

    Played an hour earlier today and liked it, then had to do other stuff. Now I tried to log back in and there's 2500 queue and estimated 21 hours wait - all Euro servers are red, no idea how bad the queues are to the others. The estimated wait time is all wrong though, it's down to 18 hours already after like 10 min wait.

    i haven't experienced any queues.. the combat balance feels quite weird.. like im never in any real danger, i can fight enemies twice my level and still kill them in a few seconds while not really caring about my hp.
    i do like that exploring the world feels more speedy than genshin.. (stamina recovers while sprinting? gasp) but it seems like they've de-incentivized exploring by having a lot of time-locked chests. it really does feel like "budget genshin" in a lot of ways.

    When does Sumeru drop? At the end of current banners, or will there be another interim banner?

  • ShadowfireShadowfire Vermont, in the middle of nowhereRegistered User regular
    There's a preview event Saturday, so I'm guessing about ten days from now.

    Sounds like Tuesday after Yoimaya Banner ends then.

    You'd think that if Sumeru was 3.0, and the current is 2.8, then what about 2.9? But I also double checked, they went from 1.6 to 2.0. So I guess it really is coming in ~2 weeks or so.

    That's how major.minor versions work, yes. The version after 2.9 could be 2.10 for something.

    Which is, of course, different than 2.X, which was created by the same guy but takes place far in the future from 2.0's perspective.

    I think I want the new grass-flavour 5*.

    Also kind of interested in playing around with the new element traveller.

    The grass child is possibly shaping up to be the Dendro archon. And I think I kinda want to keep the set going.

    Yeah, Cyno is very cool looking, that's true.

    Grass child
    is the Dendro archon Kusanali.

    Edit: ffff.. maybe name confusion here
    Might be Nahida.

    The great character leak collection. Not much stuff about him yet but I'm sure he'll be playable sooner or later.

  • ShadowfireShadowfire Vermont, in the middle of nowhereRegistered User regular
    Nothing so far. That's what my wife was just asking too. We know so far:
    3.0
    Collei, 4* Dendro bow (who we should be getting as part of the story)
    Tighnari, 5* Dendro bow
    Dori, 4* electro claymore

    3.1
    Nahida, probably
    Cyno, 5* electro spear

    Future:
    Nilou
    Dehya
    Scaramouche
    Al Haitham
    Mika

    Lame.

    To what degree are those Leaked Characters found within dev/beta builds vs. just random rumor? Doesn't seem likely to me that all those Bad Guys are scheduled for the near future. Scaramouche I get, not the rest.

    I suddenly remembered I'd been waiting for this on Switch, which doesn’t seem to be happening, and that it's on PC and now I'm playing it.

    Dear lord it looks beautiful.

    OK, I made a thread for Tower of Fantasy. No idea if there is enough interest to support a thread, but at least we won't clog this one up.

    Lots of confirmed details from the stream that we were expecting from leaks. New artifacts, new craftable weapons, general details about the first few new characters. For me, most notable things is confirmation that we'll get a free copy of Collei from an event, and confirmation that the Artifact Strongbox is being updated to basically include all of the original artifacts (plus the Dragonspine ones, I think?). I'll probably start using that for things like Crimson Witch and Thundering Fury, since their domains are... not the greatest to run.
