    Some interesting changes to advanced classes coming tomorrow

    Looking at the patch notes they posted for the update tomorrow, I like that changing your advanced class to another isn't too expensive XP wise and that you no longer seems to lose all progress upon switching. I am curious about how things will change with them switching around moves though...

    There are occasionally free-trial weekends There is a costume system where you get costumes from either in-game achievements or buy them from the store and you put them in the costume slot The style of gameplay with the astells is niche so it is a small population but it is a steady one. If you...

    2-factor Authentication Error

    I put a ticket in so hopefully I'll get a response. I've never run into it before with other systems like this.

    2-factor Authentication Error

    Been getting this error today "Two-Factor code is not able to validate". I was logging in fine yesterday. Has anyone else had it? And if so, what did you do to fix it?

    Archers versus Mages

    The guide I saw was only for the beginning of the game and it said nothing about the importance of AGI for archers. If I've overlooked a specific guide that you've found useful, I welcome a link. The unfortunate thing about this game being so niche is that info is a bit scattered. However...

    Thank you so much. Trust me, this is an immense help.

    Archers versus Mages

    I'll admit that I haven't played around with my AGI stat as much as I have DEX and STR so perhaps that will help. I already have my shots lined up with the debuffs that increase their damage as you described. At this point, I've collected pretty much every astel besides Ignagon. Do you have...

    Archers versus Mages

    Falcon arrow and Phoenix are nukes and I use them as such. I'm asking why you can use a nuke ability effectively on trash mobs and not on a boss. I don't want to one-shot a boss but I would like to take more off of their hp bar instead of just circling them and hoping they die first by...

    Archers versus Mages

    Please re-read what I said. You are making my point for me. Why is archer DPS dependent on having the advanced class unlocked and leveled? Because without the advanced class, the strongest moves we have available to us are gimped by either having to land crowd control (impossible on bosses)...

    Archers versus Mages

    Not talking about PvP but about PvE and the fact that my wind-up shots are gimped against bosses because they are immune to CC. I am a fresh level 50 but even before I hit that, it felt like my class was struggling with consistent damage once I got to my late 30s. Basically, I'm saying the...

    Archers versus Mages

    Pity then as I love my archer, but I just wish it were better designed. Hopefully they improve the class as time goes on. On the flip side, I am leveling my astels on both characters pretty well courtesy of the 2-star card Christmas event so I don't feel too bad about shelving my archer for a bit.

    Archers versus Mages

    So I started the game with an archer and leveled it up to 50 and I kind of feel like my PvE DPS is low, like my stats scaled less with my equipment the higher my level got (it started once I hit the 30s). I also kind of feel like I'm crippled a bit by having my harder hitting moves locked to...

    Astellia KR is closing down the 16th january 2020 what will happen to OUR version?

    Still think it's more a matter of PvE players in a heavily PvE-focused game not being interested in a PvP centric map. But whatever. No matter what us plebs have to say about it, all we can go by is the official statement, which is that the regional publishers are different and they have no...

    Everyone HATES Astel Cards in cash shop. Are alternatives needed?

    I'd have to say a hard "no" to making packs available for real life cash. Zender and other in-game means maybe but not real money. This game has one of the fairest monetization styles I've seen yet from a Korean company and it would be a complete break of trust to bring that system in...

    Astellia KR is closing down the 16th january 2020 what will happen to OUR version?

    These run parallel to my thoughts about the situation. The chat on this game is pretty healthy compared to others, content is most definitely getting run, and items are even being sold on the auction house though the RNG in this game does need work. Astellia feels more like a niche game with a...

    I don't think people actually use the dungeon finder and I've only seen it work well in extremely popular games like WoW and Guild Wars 2 with massive populations otherwise you'll be stuck in limbo. On the other hand, I always find other players to run with via in-game chat (getting a group at...

    Astellia KR is closing down the 16th january 2020 what will happen to OUR version?

    Number of players in the entire game or number of people playing on the map since it's PvP centered? Avalon seems like an odd metric to go by since Astellia is clearly a more PvE centered game. Anecdotally, I see people leveling at the same time as me all the time. Also, those links are...

    Astellia KR is closing down the 16th january 2020 what will happen to OUR version?

    If you enjoy the game, then play the game. Like I said earlier, Korea has insane competition for MMOs so most new games struggle and different games perform differently in various markets. If you can get a few hundred hours of enjoyment out of a game, isn't that a good thing?

    Astellia KR is closing down the 16th january 2020 what will happen to OUR version?

    Serious question, outside of maybe a few exceptions, how often do CM's on any game have the authority to discuss plans outside of referring players to officially posted news? I've played a fair few and usually that's what you can expect as it can mean their job if they give out info that might...
