    solo leg dungeons when?

    Match making is already destroyed though. Maybe it would be better to just write dungeons off, let people solo them, and try to improve the game in other ways. That would be the easiest way to resolve the problem. If there were not other things in the game to do this could be disastrous, but as...

    So much RNG and less Astel progressing

    Given that you can now only obtain 1-3 star im not sure there will even be that much disparity within that time scale. All my astells are raising fairly evenly. The ones that are in the boxes im getting are all within 1 star of each other, my guardians are all within 1 star of each other...

    solo leg dungeons when?

    I think the reason people want to solo them is because its hard to find groups. Making them solo is one option, making them random queue exclusive would be another. People will complain either way. Of course doing them at all is not really that required since everything can be sold on the market...

    So much RNG and less Astel progressing

    For a short period of time. that 160 is not enough to make a huge difference when you consider how many 160s would be required to 10 star it, or even reach the current cap of 7. Getting deck effects sorted is by far the long term progression of astells, the other things will happen neutrally by...

    So much RNG and less Astel progressing

    Most astells are useful to you due to the amount of points you need for level 3 deck effects, which you can effectively need to bring all relevant astells up to near 10 to obtain some popular combinations we dont even have access to yet. While there are probably a few astels you might not need...

    So much RNG and less Astel progressing

    You need to get all the cards many times. Getting the one card you want is not going to help you much, you need to keep getting it over and over, and this averages out so that astell progression can not be targeted beyond one fourth of your servants, meaning you have to think more in terms of...

    Astels Account Wide

    In the end you must imagine what a 'complete' character would look like. One which has maxed all the systems. You are likely to have maxed all your astels out before you have full legendary star jewels for the ones you normally use. You are likley to have good stat rolls on your items before...

    Does the Grade you get at the end of Dungeons actually matter?

    I went looking through various korean forums for an answer to this some time back. I couldnt find anything conclusive but the opinions i did find (which were from earlier this year, nothing more current) was that it meant nothing. So i suppose its only to get the s rank achievements and then it...

    So much RNG and less Astel progressing

    You need to level all your astells. there is no singular astel card to get, as no card is going to max an astel, and its not like you can go for specific cards anyway, beyond a range. You buy the packs with the coins you get, maybe you farm dungeons for them but you should probably be using...

    So much RNG and less Astel progressing

    I dislike rng in general and would go so far as to advocate even having attacks always hit for the exact same value in games. But i must point out that rng in this game is not as bad as in many other modern games. The reason is due to the many layers of rng. This has an averaging out effect. In...

    Astels Account Wide

    This game will probably need catch up mechanics, but the need for catch up mechanics is simply to fix a flawed model. Therefore one shouldn't see catch up mechanics as inherently a good thing, but as a necessary evil to help a flawed system. The distinction is important, because it must be...

    Astels Account Wide

    You can fix this problem by removing all additional character slots.

    Saving exp for alternate question.

    WoW runs on first-mmo nostalgia and ff14 on erp and hype. It has the old WoW syndrome of people playing it because its what everyone says is the best thing to play right now. You must always be suspicious of the most popular mmo because it is likley to be boosted by the people most susceptible...

    Saving exp for alternate question.

    Thats not strategy, thats the opposite of strategy as everyone would just do that with out thought. Strategy is having to consider your strenghts and weaknessess and play around and with them. Im not the biggest fan of our current system but only because the small amount of switching we do to...

    Is Astellia already dying?

    Leveling astells seems to be the long term progression. getting them all near 10 stars for the deck effects. Did you know with the right deck effects you can have two servant astells out permanently with out using the potion? You could probably run two guardians with the potion with the correct...

    Played free weekend, how worth it is end game?

    In the open field when it comes down to winning each fight, sure. But there are multiple considerations. 1. Objective. The objective is not to win the fights straight up, rather those are elements that go towards the end goal. 2. Location. Strategically picking where you fight matters. Distance...

    Played free weekend, how worth it is end game?

    We cant judge real balance yet as all we have is arena which focuses only on the direct combat of pvp, the tactical element, which ive already written off as ever being fun. How classess and builds interact on the operational and strategic level remains to be seen. The fun of RVR games is not...

    Question on changing classes (the level 50 specializations)

    Any class can do any of the solo content, and honestly the party content once fully geared up is probably mostly doable by all, maybe even better done by more support oriented classes if you are judging what can be accomplished. Solo efficiency means things like, grinding exp while solo. This...

    Played free weekend, how worth it is end game?

    The game is banking on avalon which is not out yet. Currently there are just various activities to do that improve your character one way or another. Afk farming is not botting, lots of people do this, botting itself i dont really see in the hunting areas. I also did not see any more in athlon...

    Question on changing classes (the level 50 specializations)

    Astels can do quite a bit of damage once you get their stars up and equip them well. you can have two out indefinitely with the 30 minute potions that drop in dungeons. And the advanced classess do not radically shift the base classess, only enhance them in some ways. While yes, gearing yourself...
