Hello there, and goodbye..
I can't even remember how our ways crossed in this game or when. I never watched a single of your videos, its not my style and i was bugging you to stop promote em in the chats we used to share. In the years that have passed i have to admit you are a rather nice and friendly player always in the search for something new. Now about the things you said, balance. This little simple yet so strong word has destroyed the best classes in the game in favour of others. Making them unwanted in parties, dungeons, hunts, even in arena. (talking about paladin, necromancer, barbarian, bladedancer and yes, even ranger too.) People get disappointed when the class and hero they love from one day to another is a walking piece of junk. Most quit the game. Some, the hopeless romantics ones say "i will try another class, i have so many friends in game" only to get their dreams crushed again. Now for the guides you suggest, they are indeed in forum by players that took time to write em, testing calculating again and again so they can help others. There were those like you that decided to make a video about it. More detailed easier to access. But when you want to play a game, no matter how hard it is you go through with it. I made a pala at the time where most quests were not yet translated to english and if you were lucky you had a green dot in the map. You went there and did try to figure it out. Was it a pickup quest? A kill quest? Just a chat with a friendly npc? That is what made the first players help each other. They had a reason to be friendly. Elves at least on emerald server have long forgotten they started at 1lvl. Most act like they were always +10 and 28lvl. In mc side people are still helpful and friendly, at least to me. So you should consider it to join the "dark side" but please stay away from the cookies. (they are mine)
This is seb, hello and goodbye..
