Wow this patch note comes out so "early", 6 days before actual release.

So, it's gonna be like the T2 fusion, someone's sub T2 material gone if his dagger is WIS AGI STR CON ? xD

More details about the fusion pls
yes same
you need two perfect T2 parts at least for stats of your subclass/class, for % its even better but not always possible

i know most old players already have two good T2 and just need sealed, so it can last few days at max for this update xD

With the event, stelite will be easy to farm.You can make almost 1-2k stelite + a day when the patch comes out. I was already fully geared when they changed the subclass on my wizard. It took me less than a week to readjust. Stelite I am sure its going to be extremely costly. I am sure your second t2 will be destroyed if you don't like the fusion. The event really does help out. More dungeons = more rewards.

While you guys get all excited and serious about the update, I'm just going to go ahead and say the pink dot under Virgo's "V" in the OP is real creepy. XD

I forgot my password to my other account and email but I quit in April. I saw someone post T3 was coming back to the game. So I thought I give the game another chance. I saw a few people post YouTube videos in discord and said "Hey I have nothing better to do so let me trying this game again". I'll join again Tuesday when the patch goes live.

As far as I can see, people in this community just whine and cry. The event looks like you can make lots of stelite. The ones crying are the people who abused broken classes and cried when they got reworked and balanced. Please just quit people if you can't handle a little class rework. Game is too mature for you. Go play some Minecraft or some baby games. If you can't adjust to your class quit. All I got to say.

Thx to bs subclass mess up, most mage player have to regrind everything again, so probably no more stelites left for that next lvl fusion, unless sub T2 will not be destroyed for this fusion, otherwise, we gonna see pop go down again, with the unknown stelite cost per fuse and whether the gear will be gone due to a failure in enhancement like we have there in V4. But what about next week's patch?

Again we need more details, esp, the T3 fusion.
They give us some exciting news and all you do is cry. Mages are still broken. I switched to sorc using wizard gear today. I do fine. You just suck as a mage. Adapt or quit.

i think, the problems less the rework and balance of things but more the "how" it was done,
by swapping out whole skilltrees and purposes between subclasses


that aside,

i'm actually quite a fan of the itemfusion system [that's probably the best thing, they ever implemented into the game],
since it gives the player the possibility, to choose, if he wants to play more towards rng/luck or if he wants to play it safe (with the additional effort of collecting / buying perfect gear for the fusion)

with t3 [if it works the same way as t2], you would get an additional possible fusion step, which should take out quite a lot of the games drop rng'esus [becouse now you can use unperfect gear, to "refine" / make it better on t2 ... and than use that result to work towards t3 ...

so the things, you will use as base material for you're t3 fusion ...
they're the things, you already perfected and refined during you're t2 fusion ...

so in the end it will all depend on the availibility of the new sealed and the stellite costs

I would worry more about the insane amounts of money+enhancement stones it will cost xD

Everybody cries and now that they put things in place, nobody is grateful, for my part, thanks for listening to users, because developers like that I found few, that the community thinks they would like it and they do it.

As above. I do feel it's a slight lean towards the p2w spectrum with this update, but nevertheless thank you Devs for producing more content for Astellia.

And people! If we don't want the game to become another full on p2w piece of junk we have to keep spreading word about the game!

I believe it will be one time purchase product.
zender service can be renewed each 7days, unlimited...
For other packages even if one time, its now one per character, it sounds like more and more P2W (not heavy but still!)

seems publisher or dev find only this way to make money!!! thats a disappointing!

At the end of the day works' got to pay and the servers don't run for free! I don't like p2w either, but how ethical can you expect a company to be if what they do don't make money? If the community thrives that maybe they won't need to make more choices like these.

Well this game is online for this version since september 2019! Until recently (july 2020) we never get cash shop packages including astels or zender cash shop tokens etc

For me the new publisher seems greedy, because before this version could survive without all these cash shop stuff for 10 months or so!

Could have been a lot worse. Just saying.
