First off a lot of people here know me and despise me for my bluntness. However I still play and actually still enjoy some of the game. I have not Min Maxed anything, nor catered skillz to be powerful on one way or another. I play a Ranger - Archery, Magic in the schools of, Sun Earth Life nd Water, as well as Taming. I have been around since the beginning. Some may say I am over critical on what goes on. So lets looks at what I just did; I went to Verdantis to try and find the Mushrooms that I once found at the top of the Crater. I know these same mushrooms are now in the cluster thrown in Mysterious Swamp, but was just going to see how I did in their natural setting. I did not find them but came across an Obsidian Golem. Garen Sloe, I have never been able to even come close to taking him on but decided to try. I set up, get all the crazy buffs, I can from every poitio0ns food and such that I can. I call my Trusty Obsidian Bear, a ferocious one since if he dies I can at least resurrect him. I go to work and find that I might just be able to Kite and do this, then I see that he has taken every bit of focus I had Anyhow I keep at it and am able to Kite and keep away and use enough healing potions to keep myself alive. I have put up his last few hundred HPs just to show. After a Long battle, sure it was not to hard (basically the exact same thing everyone else does when fighting trolls and Large Flying critter they just run in a circle and avoid as much damage as possible and hit as much as they can) and in the end take him down. Open corpse and LMAO. Understand again I am in a PvP area and just spent a good amount of time effort and resources to kill something I prob should not have been able to do alone. But I was not alone I had my Pet which is why taming is there. I was not able to use any skill other than running around and what I have from auto attack being able to do damage. To get 2 Obsidian Chips, 10 Granite and 25 gold is honestly an insult. I however also understand that if he had crazy loot he would be farmed so I accept it for what it is and am happy I survived and won. Sad the mushroom where not there but . . . Ok here are the Critiques about this ] First took all my Focus? really Zero left except for a few puffs? (( I know plyers are going to say get more focus and I would have some)) but way out of control Second the Loot ? Risk vs Reward ??? Third = where are the mushrooms why are they so intermittent can zones not handle players, why are we creating content that funnels everyone on into on place to just grind exp? Anyhow, OK I won and am happy Now off on another subject that of sharing EXP, (now indifferent) Players have had a chance to respect, yet now most are Bored, sorry but that is the truth. Now they want to be able to take all that exp and just transfer it to a new char on their account so they can try another style. I bet some will just go with like ranged and get as much damage and range and see if they can shoot across the scene. Or all in Meteor and see if they can hit for 50k in one blast. Why. is there nothing left do do The only concern I had with this is if on a new char and you make like 5 mill more exp will it transfer back. Of course it was really pointless since they will be able to just create a new one and match old skills, so sure go for it. Devs make a weird statement about only so much shared but EVERTHING is shared Just dump stuff off in a box and opens it with other char. Again go for it sorry to have voiced that I think it is a bad idea Then again I am still exploring, fighting and learning how to do things in this world. I have the smallest glimmer of hope for progress.(Fading) If this is done it is not progress just another finger in the dike. Hope this makes some sense to someone?
