you think this game was bad, tera was pretty horrible of a grind too. you would upgrade your weapons. lets say @BigBadAndy gets a great sword of noobslaying totality ■■■■■■■ from a dungeon. it took him 6 weeks worth of runs to finally get because its drop rate is miniscule plus his schedule to play is minimal. ok, now its on to the Tera’s upgrade system. you spend money at first, and a negligible amount, to start giving it added stats including to its damage range. so you go from noobslayer +1 all the way up to mastercraft +12. once you get up to +6 (if i remember correctly) the EZ mode upgrading is over. from +7 and up, you have a chance to go to +8…or back down to +6. it will eat your gold and your materials. gotta go farm again!
now its gonna cost big bucks as well as materials to get to +7 and beyond. so andy is like ■■■■ it i want that +12! i want to go gank the living hell out of kids, get some infamy, get a reputation for being a killer. well, hes gonna need that +12 because its mandatory to do such things, there are guys out there with his line of thinking who are also in the arms race to get the biggest ■■■■■■■ sword to chop apart some fools. not to mention you have college bums already swinging that +12 sword absolutely demolishing everyone because korean MMOs gear > everything. they dont work, just play games and ■■■■ all day in their dorm, nevermind studying.
so that means hes gonna go farm up the ■■■■ at dungeons, and in the open world. sometimes, players will take issue with andy coming in farming their monsters so he will be fighting people along the way winning some, losing some. sometimes, they’ll bring in more boys to deal with andy, since hes in a guild calls his own boys to come in too! so then your evening of farming just turned into a gang war over turf (my favorite part honestly). everyone is upset, everyone is drunk on voice chat at 2am, and hes got work at 5am the next morning but ■■■■ it hes got that hangover beer ready.
andy gets to +11 after many many months of climbing the ladder, leaving a mountain of corpses (and beer bottles) along the way. hes about to get to +12! the fated day has come! the 2 months he just took to get the materials and money due to time constraints, family life, etc etc didnt let him grind it out for the weeks straight. the upgrade fails. so in 1 mouse click he goes from +11 back down to +10. so now, he wont expect to have a mastercrafted +12 weapon until Q1 2020 at this rate because hes got business trips galore and all kinds of BS.
but wait there’s more! Tera’s gear climb is nightmarish, and they’re about to release an expansion thus rendering his weapon obsolete. he needs to go get the LATEST sword now. the noobslayer? pffftt that ■■■■ is a butter knife. now you need the great sword of assault and battery of mega totality of grudge ■■■■■■■■ not only that, but his entire kit of armor is now obsolete so he needs to go get that ■■■■ too and modify it all over again. so forget Q1 2020, its more like Q4 2020…with a new expansion coming in Q4. so this happens to his PC:
@FallofSeraphs76 just play mortal kombat and be merry. LOL
