What is good new stuff?

Postby Dandune » 2011-03-30 00:00:59+00:00

Hi all!

I post here since the usual forums (official/blah) would probably fill my thread with lots of spam and no real replies. And since I was always fond of Unity and found this page of yours, I am asking for some info. :)

Compared to about 2 years ago, what changes are really good? What would be best to do/go for chars around 40-65?

Thank you all in advance for any replies and information. :)

Since I just reactivated after a long time and am probably gonna have some trouble re-adjusting playstyle from other games, it will most likely take some time to get familiar with lots of stuff.
After this initial period of adjustement, I was wondering what are the requirements for applying for Unity clan, are there minimum requirements regarding level/gear, etc?

Hi dandune I remember you as SE :D
or you wanna go on your Nuker ?
WIth your SE you were lvl 76 or so ?
I think UNITY can use you as SE or DD.

Ow lvling is way easier these days. You get VIT 4 and inquesitor so you can use that as
a nuker SE. If you have a SOM and DC, and 76 AM 150+ holy.
Then you go dino island and own mobs 1 by 1 ;)

At lvl 80 it goes a bit slower with the exp. But as i know you play style back then you will be able to be SS lvl 80 in 4 weeks.

NObless quest is easy to. By TW or quest.


greetings,
Roza

hi :)

Well all my chars are under 64 as far as I remember. And still need to check what gear each has, afteral there are 2 full accounts of chars.
And still updating client. :S

And hopefully after all those server merges I still have all Teon chars.

In general, really good changes involve mostly people below S-grade, which have a way easier time to catch up and get somewhat decent equipment. In particular:

  • Mobs give a bit more XP
  • Several places are redesigned to allow for insanely effective grinding; for example, inside the Cruma Tower you can rush through C-grade in a matter of hours.
  • Vitality as well as Nevit system designed such as to reward people who don't play too much with faster levelling. Generally, NCSoft seems to expect people to XP for about an hour per day (though potentially do other stuff the remaining time), and gives bonuses for XPing for up to four hours per day. More than that, and you're on your own and at the usual levelling speed again.
  • D- and C-grade equipment purchasable in Giran's NPC stores, low B- and A-grade armour as well as low B-grade and mid A-grade weapons and all B- and A-grade jewellery purchasable in Giran's luxury shop, all material and shot recipes purchasable in Giran's (and other town's too) blacksmithy
  • New treasure chests dropping valuable items like BSoEs and BRezzes even at lowest levels
  • Easy daily "instant dungeons" (Kamalokas) dropping equipment frequently
  • Most one-time quests having significant XP and SP rewards
  • Pailakas (there are three of those: levels 36-42, 61-67 and 73-77), basically solo instances, giving a lot of XP, nice items for their level, and full vitality (or nearly so in the case of the first one)
  • Several new quest chains with great XP rewards, both at lower levels ("Temple" quest chain at 35, for example) as well as at the higher ones ("Seven Signs" quest chains at levels 79 and 81 - the first one gives 30% XP, or in other words over 150 million XP, and corresponding SP, for just a few hours of questing)
  • "Newbie buffs" being available up to and including level 75

In organisational sense, NCSoft seems to finally hit botters and adena buyers hard.

Now, not all changes are good, and NCSoft still has a lot to learn. First of all, the power difference between a level 80 (which is easily reachable within a few months, a year at most, even for a casual player) and a level 85 (which isn't reachable quickly without a good clan or at least a party and some dedication) are already high as it is; the differences in equipment (especially with the new elemental system) between someone who just levels and farms the stuff themselves, with a bit of the help from the clan, and someone who just bought a billion adena for $$$ and have fully "elemented" armour and weapons is staggering. Then there's the problem with PvP cheats, which NCSoft seem to have a hard time to even acknowledge, much less do something about. That's what you get for having a support and community staff which mostly doesn't know how the game works all that well ...

Well checked some info regarding that solo instance... it seems it is a one-time chain quest but it gives a lot of XP.

I was wondering if anyone perhaps got info or link to info about how much XP is needed for each level 60-76?

EDIT: already found some charts... it seems that 10mil XP is not that much afteral.
