Elsword impressions

Has been a while since I made a post. Been busy in Elsword, playing SRB2 and SRB2Kart with people in a call 3 to 5 hours a day.

Elsword has went through a lot of changes  or game revamp. Last time I played Elsword was in 2016 where skills had skill points for upgrading skills. But playing Elsword again. A lot has changed, for better or worst.

I want to share my thoughts on Elsword and talk about the game. I love elsword but it has problems..

Elsword’s Combat Power

I wanna talk about this feature… Combat Power. But before this, there was item level. So. Item level / Combat power was a another requirement for dungeons to play them.. But to be fair Item levels was a much better of the two evils…

So, why is Combat power bad? It’s a new way to gate keep you out of dungeons that have high combat power. And as far as I know, it does nothing to your combat stats. It’s a second requirement for dungeons. And even if you meet the Combat power requirement, there’s no promise that you will be able to get by some dungeons.

To add to this. It’s hard to get a idea, if you can deal with the dungeon or not. I can’t tell if I am strong enough and join a dungeon to get wiped out by the monsters. But another thing that bugs me is the combat power requirement for some dungeons is fucking high..

Add’s dungeon combat power is 75k or 75000. If you meet the requirement, you won’t be able to win since the monsters are overpowered, in my opinion.

Most other players are high leveled with maxed out gear. But returning players and new players will have their work cut out for them.


Elsword’s Dungeons

Getting into Elsword is easy, at the start. When you start out Dungeons that range from level 1 to level 70, you will have a good time. But from 69 to 99, you will have trouble or maybe need a party.

Now, why is this a bad thing? In the main story dungeons that are high level, there is no one around to help (MOST OF THE TIME) and some dungeons in the storyline become hard. You NEED a party, if you are starting out in the higher dungeons.

Odd enough, there is not many people in low level dungeons, and if there is. it is 1 or 2 players, at the most. At the low level dungeons. 1 to 50. you will have a good time solo, assuming you have your gear high leveled as you can get it. But 60 to 99 dungeons will need a party to have a “fair” chance.

You may ask, “Where are the other players at?” The other players are doing raids or doing high level dungeons with a guild or doing pvp (Player vs player) or something else. This means if you are looking for help in a help level dungeon, you are SOL, unless someone is joining the same dungeon as you. It’s not 100% the players will stay. If you have a asshole in the party, they will leave mid-dungeon.

I believe that dungeons getting re-balanced may never happen..

I love Elsword, I really do. Elsword became my new MMORPG when Wonderking met it’s end… I put 2 + years into this game. But it feels like this new version of elsword is un-balanced? The whole argument I hear is that Elsword is a pay to win game… And I can see where they come from.

You can unlock skills during quests, but unless you have the right gear and can deal good damage for these quests, those quests will be on hold till you buy them with K-ching or get stronger.

I am a level 99 Ain. But even some dungeons, I can’t even beat. I have to hope that a good event happens where you can upgrade your gear.. I know Elsword had a game revamp + some updates to make players life’s a bit more easy…

But I just want to talk about Elsword. :P

Is Elsword a bad game? No, it’s a fine 2D MMORPG. Could it use more work? Yes! But I doubt that will happen. Elsword has some beginner traps that are easy to fall in. :V But is Elsword a pay to win game? No. When you reach 70+ or 99. It becomes questionable if it is or not…

Thanks for reading. :3

Having Crash and Spyro on my PS4

Image result for spyro

It’s funny to me that I was able to get the Crash: N-sane and Spyro remakes, not too long ago. Like, I was gifted them via gift cards, with the sole intent of playing them on stream so, my friend could watch(?), is why I was able to get the games, and it was a gift of sorts.

To be honest, I never asked for a gift and let alone two gifts. I am very grateful for them, even if current events have changed my view on him and made me trust him less, I can look back to these games with fond memories of the lad.

So, I played through Spyro 1 remake and got 100 % on stream, which is a fun game. I played a bit of Spyro 2 remake, and got a bit of progress before stopping altogether. Might have been me, just getting burned out.

I do plan on coming back to complete the rest of the games or at least, beat Spyro 2. These are games I do want to play again, and just need the time. And Poor Crash Bandicoot. Have not got to play that on stream yet. I have not touched the game, have to fix that later down the line.

If I do come back to these games. I just plan on beating Spyro 2 and start playing Crash 1 from the N-sane collection and work my way down to crash 3, assuming I get that far in. I may just be the games, and call it a day.

Thanks for reading. My links are in the sidebar to your right. :3

Talking about Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth1

Image result for hyperdimension neptunia

Been playing Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth1 on Steam, and I have to say, it’s amazing to play and pretty fun to get into. Been wanting to talk about it, since my good friend, Hyper gifted it to me.

Has been a while since I played a good 3D JRPG. I did play a bit a persona 5 but end up dropping it cause I couldn’t get into it. But funny enough, Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth1 uses the same combat system as persona 5 but in Re;Birth1, I can enjoy it. And I love re;birth1. :3

Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth1 reminds me of a very old JRPG called ”
Inuyasha: The Secret of the Cursed Mask ” which is why I enjoy Re;birth1.
Inuyasha: The Secret of the Cursed Mask was your normal 3D JRPG. you can make your characters stronger and you even had a custom character. I remember getting pretty far in the game before we lost that disk.

Inuyasha: The Secret of the Cursed Mask for PS2

But Re;Birth is the game that, for me, hits the right notes. It’s 3D for everything else but is a visual novel for story and the hub content and it’s a perfect mix. I know another game where is a visual novel for story and something else for the game.

The characters are charming and great. The story is not half bad. the game is fun, I can’t stress this enough. One thing I have is, the game death system can be punishing, But it is only punishing if you only rush into combat without saving. At first, it may seem unfair but if you are careful, you will be fine.

I just love this game. In fact, I have been streaming this game on my Twitch.tv channel for a good while and it’s the most fun I had in a RPG in a long time. It also feels good to not be rushed in a RPG

But just wanted to share my thoughts on this game, and why I love it. :3 I do plan beating the game on stream. And seeing how far I am in this game, I can’t stop now. :3

Word of warning. The DLC has strong characters that are overpowered at the start. Don’t use them as they make early game feel easy, and boring, which may ruin your experience with the game, and I almost dropped the game due to how overpowered they were. Yikes.
