Blade & Soul’s chi and pet systems teased

    
16

Want to know even more about Blade & Soul’s Chi? There’s a new update on the fantasy title’s website that offers a few cryptic hints at how the mechanic will work. Chi isn’t just for warriors, NCsoft says, but is for “the mighty and the meek” who are all able to windwalk and who may take advantage of dragon pulses wherever they appear to teleport across the map.

Blade Masters, Summoners, and Force Masters “externalize their chi to enforce change on the world,” the blog says, whether that be by manipulating elements or conjuring familiars. Destroyers, Kung Fu Masters, and Assassins all internalize their chi, which hardens the body and allows for physically dominating monsters or vanishing into thin air.

In other Blade & Soul news, MMO Culture has posted a pet system preview trailer. You can view it after the cut.

That clip was kind of confusing, but I’m getting prepared to spend $30 for the best pet!

Satyros The issue is that some of those said developers don’t want/care of a western audience.  For example, Sega and PSO2.  Of course we would appreciate developers who have the insight of letting us foreigners throw money at them.

Joseph C zyrusticae Satyros So much for Madda trying in the open beta.

It’s 2015, people. Why the fuck would you put a limit on how much a player can play?

Satyros How is the Sam Hell does one compare a Russian developer to an Asian one? Russia is many times more similar to western cultures than nearly any Asian culture on the planet. Of course their games port over nearly seamlessly. Russia has been tied to the west since it’s creation. China and Japan developed around 2000 years completely separate from any western influence.

I’m looking forward to giving this one a try, but I sure would like a bit more solid game info than their recent teasers.
