So, I've had multiple hours to test the changes and they are, I can't even insert a normal word here, how bad it is. Currently we have valentine event going on and you can get the love potion + 3x buff from the cookies. However, even with these upgrades I farm ~13% less than I used to do. Imagine when all these boosts are gone? It will be even worse.

Honestly, I can live with those changes. HOWEVER; this was based on IOS, those mobs aren't changed.

 

Now the real problem comes in. The boost on mobs in normal hunting zones. I used to farm in Sel Mahum for months without any problem. After the update, I almost died instantly as soon as the mobs hit me. Again, I've read they got boosted, no problem. Lets go to a lower place and go from there.

I went to Field of Silence. So we went from a 113 spot to 109. Guess what, even there, I can't keep up with the damage from the mobs. Even there... I die.

 

It's all fine and dandy you've added new content, added new hunting zones, but why on earth did you boost the mobs so hard that on the old hunting zones it is impossible to farm.

 

Adding the herb back in, isn't going to get us anywhere, the mobs boost is just insane.

You all had 3 months to figure out how to fix your toon, they threw ya a bone, for free, while you focused on that, you chose to eat the fish instead of learn to fish.

Haha, that's well said xD

@op

The herb wouldn't help you die less though, dunno how it's related to how much damage you can endure at all.....

Other than that - boost your toon!

True, as I already mentioned, the herb isn't going to save us. The monster damage is so absurdly high that you'll die regardless.

Focus on attribute resists and damage reductors.I really don't know your items and setup, but there's surely stuff to done to mitigate the incoming pve damage.

Sounds good in theory but rarely can upgrade defense and offense.  So if you strip back your offense to survive from the mobs you kill slower anyway so you survive great but you xp slower because you kill a lot slower.

I can change SAs/Augments but not easy to get more elemental defense either.  Herb was because we did not have the damage to kill mobs, they weren't killing us, now we are being killed and can't kill them either.  So mobs were boosted in August (boost never removed + Def and Elemental Resist) we got a herb to combat that.

Now in Feb.  mobs are boosted again and herb removed.

So mobs are not 2x as hard as they were in July but same mobs are now 4x as hard as they were in July if not worse.  Our gear is better but not to +20 levels or +15 armors they have in Korea.  We don't even have the armor for r110 to gear people if we want to gear up.  So you can say "Focus" all you want great, but there more demand than supply even if you want to focus.

It's only harder when ya play afk, go to a lower level spot when you're afk.  You'll learn a lot about "playing" when you're killing harder mobs where you need to react, not just wake up and look.  xp sucks either way, might as well improve your skills.

How about we just remove macros and go back to people botting and only xping live... I am sure that will increase interest in the game.

Until macros got stable and things lighten up a little I was 100 for 2 years? Since if I couldn't find a party I couldn't xp and my play times were weird so when macros went full good to go last year (was it the Winter update?) but I could actually xp again and not have to sit there and click on mobs for 5 hours to get 1% as I never botted.  For the people that botted not much has change just made it more legal.  I know how to use skills most archers don't even realize they have, why in Olympiad I can beat equally geared people because as you say they do not know how to play.

However not the point of my post but must think I just started playing last week, I just wanted to clear that up.

I do agree there is room for upgrades, however, the costs and ways to finance it is a other issue. So I don't see why they would upgrade mobs while there is no upgrade in income? Sure, I'd be happy to gain the extra items that's needed to increase my defense. Getting a B. anthy, getting ur r110 armor from 8 to +10. (just 2 simple examples) But where do you get the resources from? It's not dropping from the sky. Those things doesn't come cheap.


There are 'more' ways to gain money, but I'm in the middle kind of player that doesn't have 'top' gear. Opening my wallet a bit isn't a issue either, but to be able what I used to do I'm Sel Mahum and doing it right now, I'd have to get a 2nd mortgage.

So again, I don't get the point that they boosted mobs in defense and damage in the old zones while they've added new ones and everyone just has to suck it up and move their 110 chars back to The Enchanted Valley.

If everyone moves down where do the new people move?  Because at 100 or higher you have to hunt in blazing or war torn min but max out there at 104 ish.  If we push the ev and hellbound people out the go where?

people 100-105 don't count, i'm sorry, they are mentees,  the guy trying for b anth and upgrade from +8 to +10 should sell the +8, go back to exhaulted armor, and up element atk with that money.  Those that can't do aden solo 105 afk could probably do 110 if played live.  

Boo hoo, mobs are too hard to afk, news flash, you aren't gonna get anywhere afk in ev/hellbound.

Dude please stop and re-read what you wrote none of that makes any sense.

You can only element your gear so much you do realize that?  Most of us if we have OE weapons and armor they are at max element not sure who you think we are.

I afk r110 aden solo and could be 115 if live but not worth it so I just do the 110 aden solo afk.  However my 108 evi use to be able to do 110 aden solo afk but even live can't do it anymore and she is geared so I am really not sure what you are talking about or who you talking about.

Thank you for your interest in this topic. However your addition to this conversation has no relevance as you haven't read anything to start with. Feel free to add something constructive as my character is not 105. Also revving up your elemental attack will get you nowhere if you die instantly. No idea what Castilla has to do with this issue.
I get the feeling you A) Don't play L2 anymore or B) You've never played l2.

This need to be fixed, you can't just increase mobs DPS and remove the only boots that helped low level player and pretend that everything is ok! Low level player don't have a chance!

Thanks!
