Blade & Soul offers its own endgame content overview

    
21

So what do you do in Blade & Soul once you’ve levelcapped?

Well, you could go do all the patched-in content coming along at break-neck speed. Silverfrost Mountains? Unchained? Rising Waters? That’s more content in two months than some MMOs get in years.

But it’s a lot to wade through, which might be why NCsoft has come up with its very own list of what you should be doing when you reach endgame in Blade & Soul (other than, you know, finding a new game): expert and heroic dungeons, world boss raids, dailies, and PvP round out the list.

If you’re still playing, what are your endgame plans?

I’ll probably do what I usually do. When I get a toon to level cap I turn around and make an alt of a different class and start leveling it. I’m slow at leveling so by the time my first toon hits cap I’ve forgotten a lot of the journey so the content doesn’t get stale as quickly for me as it does for most.
I started my warlock the day the class became available, have played it at least 2 hours a day every day, and just hit 45 last night. I’m sure it’ll be at least 2-3 more weeks before she is 50.
Nice of them to put out that list. It’ll give me something to nibble at from time to time.

Leilonii Your assumption is wrong.  I played CN BnS, and left soon after finishing reaching lv50 and finishing the storyline dealing with Jinsoyun.  Not having to do all the daily grinds actually left me a favorable aftertaste of the game.

Now I’m playing the English version and I must say that the daily grind for small stats increase by upgrading equips is quite less interesting than my previous experience.  Of course, if your definition of “worth playing” solely depends on able to grind the same dailies everyday, opposing to sparkly and shiny new stuff to experience for the first time, then only then I suppose you are correct.

Hmm… so.  Lol.  First, sure.  I’m still playing.  Was there a mass exodus?

Now, as for end game.  I think it is quite easy to figure out what you need to do, and it varies depending on your skill and what you like.  I’m not really sure what prompted NCsoft to post a list.  Maybe it is more of a PR move.

In a nutshell, it comes down to your skill and your gear upgrade paths.  The really cool part about this is, if you don’t know where to start, your gear descriptions and tooltips tell you what you need and where to get it.  The tooltip tells you the exact area or dungeon.  So… that is where you start. No list necessary.

My plans are quite simple.  I’m not ready for the Heroic Dungeons.  So I’m running the new lower tier 6 man dungeons, PvP and the level 50 Open Area WB dungeon.  And that Open Area dungeon thing they have going is a lot of fun and makes it easy to earn gear, gold and new outfits etc.  You get there and group up, stay as long as you want, and then you drop.  No hand wringing over mechanics or gear before you start.  No need to have a full group at all before you start.  You can just walk into this massive area talk to an NPC or two and then look at your map to see which of 4 WBs is up and head right over.  No fuss no muss.

And just to clear things up for some of you who miss your legendary weapon drops or think that that aspect is missing.  The catnip is not in the drop, but in the opening up your rewards and being able to transform your weapon into the new bad ass next generation.  The anticipation is still there as well as the satisfaction because the weapon truly transforms into something new, with a new look and badass special effects.  It is not your Hongmoon weapon.  It is not the weapon you started out with.

Seems like a major oversight for a sandbox but that’s just me I guess

Shamancard Leilonii  I play both and… they are different.  That’s all.  BnS is not for everyone an neither is both.  For me, I take the best of both worlds and I’m having a blast.

Leveling in BDO is fine.  It can be slow but there is much to do.  Crafting is superb, and should you want to go exploring for fishing or trading, it slows leveling down but then the grind is lessened to a great degree.  The thing about BDO is that the game was not designed around a mad dash to level cap.  Also, PvP is outstanding as guild vs. guild.

Leveling in BnS is fine.  It is very fast at first.  You can get to 25 at hyper speed.  But then, it slows down.  The combat is superb.  The best in any MMO IMO and the story is good, if you pay attention.  I mean really good.  Starts off slow and then it freaking goes off the rails in a good way.  :)  Also, PvP is outstanding in terms of Arean competition.

So… I get you don’t like BDO, but I would argue that the games are just different.  And comparisons are just missing the point of both games.

Check this out.  I think this nails it down perfectly.

…yet there is a number of players who appreciate BDO’s style. To each to their own I guess. /shrug

Sikerio People miss these finer points of the game, i even forget about them.
It’s skill based, the more you play/practice/train the better you get, another reason that keeps my interest.
Also a real big one, it’s completely free to play, and it’s not that false free in that “yea if you grind 10,000 hours” free either. I play with peeps who are not subbed, haven’t spent a cent on the store, and i can’t keep up with them and I’m subbed.

” That’s more content in two months than some MMOs get in years.” This is true and keeps game alive. Also remind this game is not pay2win and can be played as free without any problema. About competitive arena’s. all is about skill  and doesnt matter ur gear like others game like Black Desert for example.
