Hello, I’d just like to share my opinion about some important aspects of the game. I had never played lost ark before this launch, even though I’ve played every single day since release. With that said, lets get to the point.
Even though I had never played lost ark, I’ve played beta last year and liked summoner a lot. I didn’t play much because I wanted everything to be new so I just toyed with the classes for a little bit to check their skills. I think I don’t need to say that not seeing summoner in the class selection screen on launch was a huge letdown for me. At this point, I’d already seen videos about the game’s classes and chose 2 or 3 that I’d like to play more. After getting disappointed that I could not play summoner on launch, I’ve decided to play anyway because I’d need alts for farming stuff.
That’s where I am now. I’ve reached T3 and parked my character at 1340 while trying to bring up my other characters to T3. I don’t think I’m the only player that did this, but since the 1340 → 1370 push was too hard, I’ve decided to do all horizontal content in the game. After a month, I have around 90% mokokos, almost all giant hearts aside from the rapport ones, almost getting the astray, working on the ghost ship and island souls.
The game is fun, but I can’t stop wondering how much more fun it would be if I was playing with the class I chose before I started the game and that’s itself is kinda frustrating. I mean, I’ve only seen the classes through videos as I’ve never played them so they could be actually boring to play but right now I don’t know that because I can’t play with them.
This brings the second point: the roadmap. I’ve read a message yesterday saying that the roadmap’s gonna come before the april’s update, but when is the april’s update? Assuming it’s on the same time as the march update, it gets us at least another 2 weeks without news. The only thing I personally care about is the classes release schedule because in my opinion, the classes itself can make the content much more fun or much more boring depending if you’re playing a class that you like or not.
With that said, I’d like to give my feedback about some aspects of the game.
1- The class tester in the character’s creator is really bad. I don’t think there’s a reason for it to be different than using the training room or whatever the area is called. In the class tester you can’t change your skills, tripods, engravings and etc. Personally I though gunlancer was really boring based on the class tester alone, but I discovered that the class was fun after I used the knowledge booster on it. I feel like a lot of people are having the wrong impressions of classes just based on the class tester.
2- Adventure islands and Sailing coop events could spawn more during the day. I’ve missed quite a few events because I was working or had anything else to do during the little time they are available.
3- Forced 21:9 feels horrible. I actually don’t have hopes for this one, but I really wish we could zoom out and get the fov as close as possible to 21:9 without being forced to switch to this ratio. What bothers me the most is that every time I’m gonna enter a guardian raid or abyss dungeon I have to open the options (which always lags or freezes up the game a little bit) and navigate through the options to enable 21:9 and do the same thing again after the raid’s over. It’s tiresome and unnecessary in my opinion.
I’m pretty sure I had more feedback but I guess that’s it for now.
Thanks for reading.
