Changing Weather

All four seasons are coming!  As to how far these extend, I do not know.  Some popular hunting grounds have already been given additional weather effects.  I can't wait to see how this evolves.

Update 4 - Class Change, PVP

Well, a lot has happened in the last four days.  It would probably take me a few hours to write everything down, edit screenshots, and format it all; so I will just be giving ya'll a summary.

First, I finally made it back to Talking Island (pref 2011).  Everything was black and white, for the effect of going back in time or probably going back to an old memory.  I don't think it was actual time travel, psst, here is a secret of mine, I don't read quest text.  So, don't tell anyone okay... or else.

Long story short, I switched classes.  I am now playing a Kamael Yul Trickster.  Absolutely love the switch.  I can actually PVP a bit.  There is a lot of potential in this class.  I came across the suspicious group of "players" when I was off exploring other areas that I never go.

And another group of "players".

Took me two days or about 16 hours of play time to hit 85.  Did I mention I love the class change?

I PKed so many people on my way to 85.  I even went full red just for the hell of it.  I can't wait to this hot piece of meat at 105, wrecking people left and right.

Update 3 - Clan Hunt, Macros, PVP

Today was pretty damn awesome.  After spending two full days grinding, it's nice to get out with the clan, hit some high exp spots and engage in some PVP; even if we lost.

I was finally able to finish my first Kartia 85.  Almost died, but survived in the end.

Spent most of the day hunting Harnak's on my own.  I did bring my two alts over to Bloody Swampland, to power level them, while I was doing the event and daily quests.  Eventually kicked their broke asses back to Varka Outpost, lol.  They only hit 83 today, so I am kinda regretting not sticking with the power leveling.  I want them 85 and out on their own ASAP.

Later in the evening I got an invite for an EXP group, which was a welcome change.  I am usually reluctant to join EXP groups because although they can be fun, they usually offer less EXP per hour.  We headed down to some Observation place (I forget the location now).  We found a group of macro bots farming a good spot so we decided to kick them out.  Waited for them to pink on us and then we ended them all.  "Cucko "BaScHaN "Trak3n and their ISS, never had a chance, lol.  We actually spent about two hours there farming, after we had killed them.  I guess the owner thinks he was safe and just never had to check on his macro bots.

Speaking of the owner.  "Militia, the scripting, macro botter, rude person... finally showed up.  He killed most of us at least once.  People were saying he was over level 100 and was a perma red.  I tried to hit him but all my skills missed.  I died four shots later, lol.  My clan leader went on his 101 Mage but wasn't able to kill him either.  Militia uses some sort of script for instant defense and targeting abilities.  Was pretty obvious after a few fights with him and his heal bot.  I died twice.  I didn't plan on spending the evening face down, but the b-resses from the clan made it manageable.  Militia ran his mouth for a while longer after the fight.  Not sure why this guy was raging so hard.  I am guessing this is his job in real life.  So two hours lost farming, its probably like 40$ or something for him.  Poor guy, I hope he gets to eat tomorrow.

Overall EXP gain was absolutely amazing today.  I hit twenty billion, that's billion, with a B!  That's a new record for me.  The group hunt was definitely a contributing factor.  I will be hitting level 90 tomorrow.  I am not sure what exactly I am going to do about my items yet.  My Awakened Set has only 25 days until it expires.  I should be able to hit 95 and get an R95 weapon before they expire.  I am just not sure how to go about doing that.  Some say craft, others say buy.  I guess we will have to see where I am at financially at 95.

I have a new section coming to the blog.  I'd like to call it End Shots.  Every Monday I will be posting a weekly dump of all the kill shots I have gotten, including clan fights.  It's a great way to keep track of who you killed and a perfect way to rub it in their face a few months down the road, lol.  I am questioning the abilities of Blogspot though.  I want to be able to tag each and every screenshot and then allow users to come to the website and search a players name.  That search will show results for every time that person has died.  If I can't get that working here, I will switch to my own site but that's probably months down the road.  Oh, and one final bit of bad news.  My Mentee headphones expired.  I no longer look like a bad ass DJ :(

Update 2 - Level 88 and Episode 5.0 Content

I finally got a glimpse of some of the new content coming in episode 5.0.  I won't go into detail right now because I haven't had a chance to look at everything, but so far, some of the new stuff looks pretty damn awesome.  One of the biggest changes I am excited for is the new Blood Pledge content.  Those terribly outdated rankings are finally going away, there will now only be two ranks (Elite and Pledge Member).  Pledge levels are now increased up to 15.  I am not sure what all the bonuses are for but it gives more incentive for growth.  I absolutely love pledge levels, skills, passive bonuses, etc.  World of Warcraft had a really good clan system back in the days of Cataclysm, before Blizzard ruined it.  Anyway, group content is why I play an MMO and when you log in on a Sunday morning and see that your entire pledge can now hunt with a new passive buff because you and a bunch of your other pledge mates, went and completed some major task... well that's pure pride right there.

There are a few other changes I am excited for.  ISS buffs will now be one spell instead of like eight.  I may have read that part wrong; I only started learning Korean a few months ago.  It also looks like we will be getting some new quests after 85 to help boost us along.  This I don't really care for.  I know we all want max level, but when you are the player that has hit 85 and then started busting your ass off for 90, 95 and 100... its a little disheartening knowing you can just wait a year and those levels will be handed out for free.  Which leads me to my final bit of info for today.

I am now level 88, w00t!  If I remember correctly, I am already 25% into this level.  The Red Libra event is definitely helping me burn through this rough patch.  I know I will feel a lot better once I hit level 90.  Fairies has been a fun spot, good exp but I hate all the running around.  I'd rather kill one large mop for 10,000,000 exp, than to kill ten mops for 1,000,000 exp.  Yes, I know it's the same exp, but it doesn't feel challenging to just AOE down large packs of fairies.  Both of my alts are now 76+ so I am excited to get them awakened.  I am hoping to do this tomorrow, but realistically, it's looking to happen on Monday or Tuesday.

The pledge leader has been gone today and yesterday so the overall activity of our members has been seriously lacking.  No one on discord, no fights, no groups... and it seems every time I ask a question, there is a response in a different language.  I don't care if other languages are in the pledge, but right now, it's leaving me with a sense of loneliness.

Here is my play report for the day.

First Post on Chronos

Well, I have been hunting Harnak Underground Ruins.  Had some newb farming in my spot, named "Lingyin".  I knew he was too well geared to kill so I just started farming the same spot.  He started pinking on me, stunning me every five seconds, bursting down every mop I touched.  I stood my ground and kept farming.  He left after 15 minutes, lol.  Patience pays off in the end.  I have been farming Harnak's for the past 15 hours straight.

I have made just over 40% from pure grinding.  I am seriously considering buying an EXP Rune, but that is one slippery slope.  

Avora requested some 18A content... except that tomorrow.  Today's Report: Only for the last six hours of the day.

RPG Maker MV - Tileset Recolour - Cartoon World

Hey everyone,
As my first tileset, I wanted to do something simple and still helpful to the community.  I created Cartoon World.  A few adjustments in Photoshop with Hue/Saturation and we have got a realistic looking, more cartoony type tileset.  Enjoy!
