I like the world boss bonuses, it lets me survive to the 6th hit without putting a major dent in my vouchers.
My problem with this game at this point can be summed up fairly easily.
1. The christmas event is only for cashers? are you kidding me? I have never heard of such a stupid thing!
2. Wings with amazingly high stat increases only for cashers? again, I have only heard of something this stupid on Shaiya when they made enchant items for ap only.
I know the fault is not with Aeria and I am not going to blame them, the blame goes to 7 Road. But here is the final analysis of this game, it's fun but it's going to die just like Shaiya if something does not change real soon.
1: Christmas Events
These have been up since Wednesday when we had maintenance. You can get the mount without spending any balens.
2. Wings aren't that extremely high, 120 to 4 minor stats, 3 that you actually use. So you get 3 lvl 4 gems extra from those the HP one is 1200 so that's a level 6 HP gem extra. The 2% is where it is determined by the other gear the players have as to the value. Like the wings for me only give me an extra 1.4k BR at level 57. When their base BR is 720, so get around 700 BR from the %'s. If it was 120 to Str, Int, Endurance, Armor, Charisma then yes that would be a lot higher for all stats.
I play on the chinese servers to test things before they come out here. There are other wings then those 9. Some that have Double the stats of the Balen wings, some that have half the stats. But only those 9 are in the Balen Shop. They are also on update 1.6 while we're at 1.45(6). So the english servers are still a ways behind the chinese ones in terms of content. As content continues to come out things will change in time.
