    benjaminbt got a reaction from Venkery in Guide to a returning veteran (Tatelan, EU-Emerald)   
    So, after countless days of drought and absence you have finally downloaded Warspear Online again. What were the reasons of you leaving the game in the first place? Being overwhelmed by everyday life or an intense conflict in game that made you click the uninstall button, not looking back? Or just simply getting bored of the game? I feel you. Have been there a couple of times myself. Now, how about letting me help you getting back into shape? There, hold my hand. Whew, it’s got a bit soft after all this time.
     
    Navigating strange new seas
    Now, fellow player, as you don’t set sail without knowing the waters, it is not wise to even touch the game without having at least a general idea of what has changed since you leaving and if there is a current seasonal event running where you can find some quick action immediately after returning to the game. The game’s forum at https://forum.warspear-online.com/ is a perfect place to gather this information. Consider it as a... detailed navigation map for your upcoming old but new adventure.
     

     
     
    The main menu & logging in
    Not a whole lot of things have changed here honestly. It’s a main menu, after all, not your face. (You have gotten older, so I assume you have changed at least a little bit...?)
    The menu is dressed accordingly to the seasonal event (as usual). And the build number is over 10! Say whaa- and what’s that familiar sound? The main menu song! Oh boy, haven’t you forgot how great the sound of this game is! 
    ta-da, da-da-da-da! 
     

     
    The first thing you’ll need to do is finding the password to your old forgotten character. Obviously.
    Is it an email address with a password you have been using for a lot of other places as well? You live dangerously, I must say, but well, you are in luck this time. Just input the data and you are in! Hooray!
    Seriously, though. Don’t use the same passwords everywhere.
    Now, if by any chance you don’t remember your account email or password, I can’t help you as I don’t know it either. I’m not a psychic, jeez. But remember, support can help you at https://warspear-online.com/en/support. Probably. Hopefully.
    Now, everyone is sorted and ready? Let’s jump in!
     
     
    **LOUD PORTAL SOUNDS**
     
     
    Wow, such new stuff!
    Now, that we are in the game, take your time to have a look around. Depending on when you have last played, many things might have changed in the game, like changes to the UI, the reorganised menu (image #1), the new gear loadout (image #2) or the new personal storage (image #3) where you can put all your stuff and access it with other characters on your account (given that they are on the same server). Cool!
     

     

     

     
    Again, I don't know when you were last here. The above mentioned are just things that were new to me when I started playing again. If you put the game down even earlier, there might be many more features and things you have to (re)discover! Again, the forum is a good place to catch up!
     
     
    I'm out of gold... And where's my stuff again?
    Maybe you are in a position that for one reason or another, your inventory is mostly empty and your gold purse is sucked dry. Perhaps you transferred all your stuff to a bank account or gave it to your little brother... If so, try to get what you can back. I always had a bank character to store the most essential items and a considerable amount of gold just in case... You know. This case. Returning to the game.
    But there's also the way we used to do it when we were young. By doing quests, dungeons and farming some enemies. That'll get you started.
     

     
    What else can I do?
    1. Do some quests to get the hang of it again.
    2. Join a few arena fights and show them how it's done (or fail miserably)!
    3. Try a dungeon or two. If one of the seasonal events are up, definitely do more than two.
    4. Go through your inventory and try to trade some stuff.
     
    As I said, this way you'll also get a handful of gold and essential stuff to make your next steps easier.
     
    Consider joining a guild if you had been kicked out while you were gone. If you are lucky, you will get into one where they actually speak your language and the guys are (somewhat) active. After all, this is an online game, a game to play with others...
     
    Maybe some players will recognize you. "The great *insert your name here* has returned to the game, all hail! What a day it is!" 
    Maybe nobody will care about you. *cricket noises* 
     
    Either way, make sure you enjoy the game this time. A fresh (re)start, might I say? You haven't come back to the game again to grind and grind and grind and grind and g....
    Have you? 
     
    Well, that's most it has to it, fellow adventurer. At least for now. Good luck on your return to Arinar and don't forget: 
    SYSTEM: NEVER SHARE YOUR ACCOUNT INFO WITH ANYONE! DOING SO WILL RESULT IN THE PERMANENT BAN.

    I like the idea. Unfortunately however, this game was never good at maintaining content in this way; players would eventually quickly outgrow one boss or dungeon or area.

    benjaminbt reacted to Raislin in Warlocks   
    Looks like this is another case of copium from someone who doesnt have a single % of resist. As the game stands warlocks are probably by far the worst class for pvp. Even wardens and seekers have something going for them now and dks are at least somewhat tanky and have decent stuns as long as they arent fighting a bladedancer.
     
    Priests are still kind of terrible though. So might be a tie with warlock. 
     
    Warlocks have poor survivability, they have no health sustain other than life steal as exhaust is pretty much a completely useless skill even after all the buffs over the years. They have no good defensive skills as the only one they have is likely to get them killed instead of helping(stone body).
    Only thing they do well is CC and all of the stuns can be resisted and even if they are long duration stuns (circle) or silences (whatever the most recent skill is called) a single resist is enough to completely negate the whole effect.
    Fading/puddle combo can be resisted twice or 3 even if neither the stun after puddle or fading get resisted your puddle might not even work if it has a wrong type of offensive relic placed in it and that gets resisted (unless that was fixed at some point).
    Kind of remember that they made it so that fear cant be broken with damage anymore but that used to happen as well.
     
    In summary If nothing else warlocks need a major rework or massive buffs to be competitive in anything else besides irselnort wars and some gvg scenarios.
     
    And no i dont main a warlock.

    I'm not sure how they would implement it under the current system of revive scrolls, but it's a nice idea nevertheless.

    Over the years there was a point when every single class have had their "it's too powerful, nerf it" moment.

    This is an old problem. Sentinel side has been getting stronger and stronger as the years went by and I always felt like the same wasn't true for the Legion. As an example, undoubtedly bladedancer was the easiest character to play because it literally had no downside, and such classes will always attract more people.
    Now we are at a stage where Sentinels are as a whole better than the Legion because there are more people there.
    I don't think anything can be done at this point without breaking the game.

    benjaminbt got a reaction from Whitex in Arena is really PROBLEMATIC.   
    It's not like I am complaining about my current status, since I've never ever been in the top five with any of my characters. 
     
    But the fact that without a keyboard pressed I can get to top 2, is quite embarrassing for the game in my opinion.
     
    I sometimes play Brawl Stars (the rather new Supercell game) and there is an idle kick inside the arena. If you don't move for half a minute, it warns you then kicks you out of the current match. With the option to log back in, of course. I think some sort of system like this could prevent point farming in arenas, or at least make them more time consuming and less efficient. Maybe after certain amount of kicks the match would not give points to anyone, ergo the time they tried to cheat with afkers would become a waste.

    Also some new stuff for the lower level maybe? Haven't seen that since the arena gear update.
     
    I have been playing the game for 6 years now (with smaller-bigger breaks) and looking back I see just how much I have changed during that time in every aspect.
    How have you changed since your first ever login into the world of Arinar?

    It is very... interesting to see how some people already denounce a system that has not even been released yet.
    I suggest to wait and try it in real. I personally don't believe the Developers would make such changes unless they are sure about success.
    Besides, you can also look at it (as mentioned above) as a live mass testing. If it doesn't work, it will probably be modified anyways.
     
    And please, don't always come with the "shitty update, lazy Aigrind" whining. It must be very demoralising to try to work and improve the game with such feedback. Let's be nice with our dear Developer team for once!
