I logged back into Black Desert Online yesterday to try the Witch Awakening and I love it. Now I have to decide if I want to add BDO back to the list of games I want to play.
I just finished the Season in Diablo III with CrankyB and that was a blast. We’re playing Neocron 2 again which is fun, but it’s not super immersive. I always end up wanting to do something else after a couple of weeks in game there.
I’m also picking up Star Wars the Old Republic again because I really, really want to finish at least one character and see the stories. I particularly enjoy the Sith Sorceress. I do love being bad. I may end up playing the Jedi equivalent too if I make one.
While BDO I want to give BDO all of my attention, I just have too much to do to spend more than an hour or two at a time in game. For BDO that’s not really enough to get far fast. Though getting far fast isn’t what BDO is about once you get to end game, and honestly that isn’t all bad. Considering how big a difference levels can make in the game.
At the moment I’m playing SWTOR alone and that doesn’t bug me much. Neocron I really only play with the guys because I don’t want to play it solo. As for BDO, I’ll probably be playing that a bit by myself then goofing off in it here or there with what guild members still log in. Other than that it’s on the back burner for me.
Last night I actually had a lot of fun with CrankyB. We went for a walk through the Neocron Zoo which is one of my favorite places to visit in Neocron.
After that we went hunting for Warbots and Firemobs. Though I did forget my fire resist belt like a moron and ended up getting offed once.
On the bonus side, being a PPU I was able to buff against the fire mobs which helped quite a bit. Though it is about time for an upgrade since I can use the rare PPU items now. We have to build or buy them first. We don’t have them yet. I do at least have holy items so that is helping us quite a bit for now.
We have the parts for two of the rare PPU spells, the rest of them we’ll probably be able to get over time or we’ll just trade for them. That is the one nice thing about Neocron, if you don’t have what you need chances are someone does and it’s just a matter of trading or bartering.
In the meantime I’m doing a lot of Construction missions on the Clan constructor. She’s sitting at 243 Construction which isn’t bad.
I’ve also been doing some Research missions with the Clan resser, she’s sitting at a modest 196 research. I need to work on it some, but she has a high success rate with rares so it’s not all bad.
I mostly want to do the missions so I can save up credits for a nice apartement in Via Rosso for my PPU. She just has a couple of crap-tacular apartments in Pepper Park at the moment.
Construction wise we have a few rares to build for the Clan. After that we may end up working on vehicles. The funniest part is that I have two characters with vehicle skill, I’ve built them, but I don’t have a single vehicle!
Next up I want to write about how to be a strait up pacifist in Neocron and actually still enjoy the game. Until then, happy hunting!
