So, I’m going to try this style of doing update logs on games or things. Keep track of five to seven days and note down important thoughts or moments that happened, and after five to seven days, show off the progress.
Day 1 – 01/06/22
Got rigomor bottom to R15
my flames of judgment are close to being nearly perfect
I have 200 million in my bank
Day 2 – 01/07/22
FOJ is almost perfect. One more giant stone
got rigomor bottoms to r16
Day 3 – 01/08/22
completed the 2 million event
Did Titan’s Grotto
700m in bank
Day 4 – 01/14/22
did Rosso raid with less lag
Day 5 – 01/15/22
got another batch of alt accounts ready to grind to max level
I have 1 billion ED in my bank
I have 42 alt characters to grind out to level 99
And that is roughly 8 billion ed if I do the story as well and pvp quests
It may help me get to Reforge +21 or +18
I will spend ed on fashion. And after I get good gear or get 3B ED. No point in buying fashion and being useless. I think around 3 Billion, I will buy the invisible suit for ain and go hard on getting to reforge +18 and going from there
And I will try to push for +21 Reforge on all gear +11 the rest of my gear or + 11 my gear then push for reforge +21
And once I get reforge +21 and +11 Rigomor gear, I will try to push for plus 12 weapon when I have the money to back it up if things go wrong.
So, Elsword has been getting updates, changes, and over all things to make life easy in elsword, although, too little, too late. It is also funny seeing some elsword elitists get so worked over opinions on a video game. There can be a whole post on these users, and how petty they can be or act. But this post is not about them.
Logging into elsword and playing after five months of stopping.
I will be logging in and doing content. Time to see how useful [blu] is this time. this is a progress log.
Ah, it has been a while since I made a blog post on elsword. When I made blog posts about elsword, it was back then. When I didn’t understand the video game or the community, I was still learning as someone who played Elsword on and off. I thought it was a great game, and there is a great video game* under all the filler or junk.
I want to share my thoughts on this game and the community. And I know I will burn some bridges, but if I do burn any bridges, I know who my friends are. :3 And I saw the elsword community on discord and Twitch tv. And I will get to them later on, much later on.
So, enough stalling. I think I’ll start with this post, no? And to start this review off, I have to add the best question for this post.
So, I never liked how raven played back then. But I didn’t know how to play as Raven. Kinda ignored him for 5 to 8 years. I also didn’t know how to play as magical characters.. But.. I learned after a decade later. LOL
Why did I start to play as a Raven? Or what made me play a Raven? This video. It made me give Raven a another chance.
This video was about MeteorFalcon talking about his past with Raven and selling you on the Idea that you should play as Raven or rather play Raven Nova Imperator which MeteorFalcon wants you to play as. He mentions the other paths but Nova is the main star of this video.
So, I joined a elsword guild or got a random invite to this guild called “Thundercry” I was gonna decline the invite at first but I figured I will give this guild a fair shot before I deny another invite to a guild
And so far.. It’s not bad but I only been in the guild for 2 days but people seem friendly and it’s pretty active and like always, or rather they are looking for active players. There is no deadline for being inactive. There is, but prob in their discord.
So far, things are going well. But I will report back when I end up getting kicked from the guild for being inactive. For the most part, the members do their own thing. There is somewhat freedom here, and not forced to join them if you wish.
I have always been against being in guilds since I will admit I have a bias against being in a guild. I tried being in a elsword guild but it was boring. I didn’t get the chill vibes so I dropped Elsword a bit to come back to find I was kicked for being inactive
It’s funny, since then, I have never joined a guild since but I say that but…I made a guild for me and my friend since every other guild just gives off this weird energy
I just don’t know. Elsword has gotten better and the NA Elsword are much more friendly now but back then… Yikes. It was not welcoming a few years back. Some of the NA Elsword pvp is still toxic so things never change.
It’s finally here. The big update for the new areas and, now players who are trying to get by, can now have a “better” time doing these dungeons, although, a watered down version of normal raid dungeon. You can still get the normal items to get the accessories by getting blaze shards and trading them in.
Get ready for MASSIVE changes to Varnimyr and Rigomor Regions (including Rewards)! Enjoy Adjusted difficulty levels, an easier time getting the Flames of Judgement weapon, changes in reward acquisitions and more! You’ll find plenty of these improvements exciting and refreshing!
This update will be awesome but that doesn’t mean it will be a walk in the park, you will need to be ready to back up your team and yourself. And for the love of El Lady and all that is pure, stock up on revive tokens and potions..
So, for those who don’t know. Elsword had a maintenance that was 11 hours long meant to fix the connection issues in KOG games. To make the game more stable but what people said, it was for the raid areas so… Don’t know.
What I do know is that after the update / maintenance was done. The game felt better but everything was normal.. Till today I tried to play around 11 Am and the game did not let me in.. Thinking I got banned or something, I checked the site but no updates but checking the elsword Discord
I was not the only one affected. Seems those in the NA servers are affected by this. There still is no update status, blog post. We are left in the dark without a real answer and it’s weird.. I thought the maintenance was meant to fix some of the issues..
I can say, I hope people affected by this get something to make up for this disconnect because this is annoying and I was having fun playing Elsword before the disconnect. Players outside of NA can still play but all players are slowly being hit by this. Again, we are in the dark at the time of this post.
Compensation is deff needed for this. I can hope it’s not piss poor compensation like “Here is 20 healing items that you can get that do the same thing from the board. :)”
Ah, So you know you done something stupid in a game when you have regrets after the fact. What am I talking about? I changed my ain richter to an ain bluhen.
This is bad since my old Ain ( ain richter) was a a physical class and not magical. Now being Bluhen now, I’m a magical class and all of my damage and power that Ain richter had is GONE and that really sucks. I shot myself in the foot with this move. I can’t do much unless I either change my gear to magical types or buy a class change ticket.
Don’t get me wrong, Bluhen is pretty amazing at clearing dungeons. Better then Richter when it comes to clearing out dungeons. And the long range attacks are great and most of Bluhen Skills are not bad. Some of the attacks seem to do more damage more then Richter’s attacks. And that’s great but for me, it’s not going to do me any good being a Bluhen. If I had a magical copy of my Physical gear, I think I would be in a better spot but that’s not the case for this.
But for now, I will just have to pay some K-coins and change back to a richter. My range will be poor but my damage will be much better then what it is now.
Change is nice. I learned about Bluhen but never do anything on a whim because you may or will regret it later. I sure as hell did regret it. Never doing anything like that again unless I am sure I won’t regret it later on.
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.
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…
