Blade & Soul’s Silverfrost Mountains patch brings new areas, new dungeons, and a new level cap today

I'm a big helper.

Here’s hoping you didn’t get too comfortable at the level cap for Blade & Soul because it’s going up. Today, even! The massive Silverfrost Mountains patch is bringing a boost in the character level cap to 50 and Hongmoon level 10, giving players the extra edge to pursue Jinsoyun across new areas. The patch also adds several new dungeons to the mix, five Expert and three Heroics, that will test the abilities of players ready for a new tier of challenge.

Players with a more PvP-oriented mindset will want to head over to the Soulstone Plains, where the two PvP factions of the game are sparring over who gets to mine the Soulstones located therein. The result is a constant rolling PvP battle that moves in phases, with one faction winning the right to start operating the mining equipment followed by a need to defend the equipment from prolonged attacks. There’s a lot in the patch, though, so even if you’d rather not fight endless wars over who gets access to a resource temporarily, you’ll have plenty to do.

So I’m at level 47 now.  I have finally made into the Zawei.  I am enjoying this xpac very much.  There is a llot to do as I mentioned and I still haven’t figured out who the Faction vs. Faction stuff works exactly.
Lots of WBs, I mean lots.  Lots of mobs that really test you skill in combat.  Lots of new dungeons and group instances.  But many of these are open instances with tons of people with the same goal which works well with the really tough fights.
My only complaint is the frame rate drops.  I haven’t seen this too much elsewhere, but here in certain areas with bosses with multiple adds the frame rate drops significantly.  Nah, it’s not my card.  It is a known issue.  Turning off namplates works to help.
This new world they delivered is beautiful.  It’s no BDO, and it is not photorealistic, but beautiful nonetheless.

zyrusticae OK now i get you, I’m like it’s only patching, we get to miss the mess afterwards, but no it’s running already, i guess all the regular nightmare upgrades have all been ironed out in the past. So it’s here you go…play!

So do yourself a favor and record your conversation with Granny when you get to the new area.  I wish I would have.  That was !@$#%^& great!

My favorite cut-scene so far is when you, Soha, Juwol, and Yehara are protecting Yunwa while she unlocks Mushin’s Legacy, you are fending off Yonkai army… they are starting to overwhelm you… THEN…
Jinsoyun enters the battlefield… OMG! they did that scene so well, at that moment, you truly feel her POWER! Every expansion brings us closer to our revenge!

I am still working through FFXIV’s Heavansward X-pack (yeah I am slow). Once I get done this is the next MMO I am going to play. It looks fantastic.
