I am a F2P Player, I love Lost Ark, I’ve only played western release, and watch Lost Ark on twitch before this. Don’t get me wrong but the t3 dead zone gatekeep is too real here, making the p2w wall exist to milk people money because of the high player base in the beginning. This is already proven in Korea with statistic, so why wasn’t something done before release to combat this dead zone?
Please I really like this game, do something about the honing/materials sooner rather than lather. I am looking forward to the Legion raid as I’ve been watching twitch all day/night while I’m playing checking out the end game content, they are on par and rival WoW’s end game raid and I’ve played wow for over 15+ years. I can’t wait for Hell mode Vykas or Valtan.
Just let me say, I’ve played all the MMO out there, even the most recent Elyon to the old school hardcore grinder Lineage/Lineage 2, Grinding is nothing new to me, I can grind all day everyday so that’s not the problem.
is this really from 1 chaos dungeon? wtf? Earlier on my Berserker I only got 90 guardian and 70-/+ destruction stones, and only 4 pieces of gear at 1325 Chaos dungeon.
This was from stage 1…wtf
this is stage 2…wtf again?
total of THREE honor leapstone for the entire run @ 1325 dungeon, the 1355 one is SLIGHTLY better.
I have 9 character, 8 alt, 4 in t3(1325 alts)and rest in t2. Main is 1365, w/ 100+ fail in t3, started at 75 fails reaching t3, ended at 220(w/ alt fails), I’ve spent good 250k+ gold on honing after price fell, now I’m broke, and selling my mats to recoup my lost, because I really wanted to reach 1370 this week to do Argos, I’m getting bored of the daily task right now.
I work a “full time” job that don’t have a set schedule, sometime I work 7 days, sometimes I work 2, so on the days I don’t work I grind 12 hours+ a day to catch up for days I lost working, because I can’t really play when I work.
This loot is actually stupid, w/ Guardian raid that’s about 1 attempt a day on armor, less for weapon. 7-9 attempt a week if I were to only play 1 character, or if I grind like a mad man for 12 hours a day with 8 alts and hopefully I can get 30-40 attempt a week, this also means little income because T2 mats price as fallen significantly and my t2 alts can’t produce a lot of gold anymore compare to before.
Why am I force to grind like this If I want to progress at a faster pace than the casual as a F2P?
Let’s hope I don’t get this right, but once the player base dies down, they will implement the honing changes(unless the community rise up and actually make them do it sooner) and maybe make our version more like KR/RU/JP where changes are minimal.
