u vaporize even with 730gs with defensive lightstone sets etc unless u r one of the lucky "built different"tm classes.
That's the problem. This one shot metas are going for too long. If the game was all about skills and praticing one's class to perfection.. i would be very satisfyed but that's not the case.
on top of having a RNG CC system with Desyncs and unfair class builds, there is no "skill" anymore in learning classes. DR needs more love.
Remember the Oasis event? PA giving everyone TRI boss gears and weapons like candy.... free foods and carrots....not to mention in Season, they gave TET assossaries like candy.
I was so peacefully building my class, all the grind and hardwork over time... then PA just hits on my balls. 6 of my friends with +650GS left BDO that day... I don't see anyone anymore. Many have become extream casuals too. Some even forsaw this comming and left years ahead.
Keep at it! They've started restoring the visuals as they once were back before April of 2021. You can see the trees beautifully crowning the distant hills once again. I'm biding my time for the music to be restored to it's former glory, but it seems they sometimes need a couple years to fix a major mistake. But there is hope: persistance is rewarded!
