Voted 1 for you management of Shaiya for these reasons:
1. Customer support
Best GMs left in the past year (tactics, Jecca, FoxTrot, Falcon) they even forget about morning events and maintenance threads now. Interaction with GMs in-game almost nonexistant, 10d to do tiered is the new standard, BC gone, bonus AP on fun cards gone, 100% rebate mess. Only bright note is link/enchant/exp events, Render and ulicul but no one on the team with charisma that can make ppl laugh like old ones. Managers seem to see only short-term monthly income instead of having longterm plans to make steady money flow.
60-65 gear: way too many defensive properties and potential HP
70 gear: insanity and final farewell to mages/pagans.
More def&resist = harder to kill = less kills = less PVP. Weapons should be 2-3x more powerful to break through these gears
3. Linking, enchant, ojs
EP3 = easily farmable lapis, no OP, no LC, no RR, no lapisia (no AP needed)
EP4 = 6s farmable, OP required, LC recommended, RR, lapisia (moderate AP)
EP5 = 7s nonfarmable, OP LC RR lapisia required, best max oj (all AP)
