Asta’s Wrath of the Berserkers update brings a level cap increase and new area

    
11

Shh. You hear that? The rustling of leaves on the industry wind? The tweet of birds engaging in social media? The far-off distant sound of a lawnmower cutting through raid bosses? That’s the sound of an incoming content patch, and if you listen very closely, you’ll even hear the name of the game: “Asta… Asta… Asta.”

The Korean MMO announced today that it’s preparing a global “content expansion” for the end of the month called Myth I: Wrath of the Berserkers. It looks to be a meaty patch, with a level cap increase to 55, a new area called Wado, the Mountain of Trials dungeon, and plenty of additional quests and achievements to keep everyone busy.

The Mountain of Trials looks to be a flexible dungeon based on your interest and group size, accommodating single players, small groups, and 10-player raids. The instance contains seven bosses, each more grumpy than the last.

castagere shaikura ProfessionalNoob ayatesart Yikes!  Well, I did hear about that already, but I thought I’d give it a try anyways…

Maybe, with a lower population it won’t be so hard to avoid it?  I’m sure there’s PvE content past 40, too…

I’m just interested in this game as a little fun side-game when I’m not playing WoW, and while I wait for something greater to come along.

I’m only level 5…so far, so good, but not sure how long it will keep my interest.

I started this one a few days ago. It’s charming and reminds me of the games that got me into MMOs in the first place. I’m having fun. Cute art style and nice music. Appreciate the effort to create dynamic events to bring together different players questing in a certain area who might not have otherwise crossed paths or interacted to defeat a big, genuinely tough boss–I encountered my first of these around level 5, and it was unexpected but nice to face that kind of challenge in such a low level area, which in most games is a lot more faceroll-y. Love the return to manual allocation of stat points every time you level up and ability to mix/match between skill trees (I’m a healer, so I can make a straight healer build, a DPS build, or a hybrid, which is my plan). Races also come with different starting stat allocations, which I actually appreciate. My human healer will turn out way different from a Yayo (elf/fox thing) healer. You can create a build that suits your style, even if it ends up not being optimal for PVP or raids. I find it a lot more fulfilling to develop a character where I feel like I’m in the driver’s seat in terms of its progression.

It’s nice that even though it’s a two-faction game (where each faction has its own continent), you aren’t locked in to one faction for all of your toons. This, and the fact that currently you can have about six different characters on the same server, means that you can easily coordinate with friends playing the game who might have chosen the other faction. I guess the downside is that it’s a bit of an immersion-breaker for role players who really want to get into the faction v. faction aspect, but I feel like there are already enough games that provide that experience and I appreciate the flexibility here.

The game has a low population at present but that’s hardly surprising given the lack of press/hype currently out there.

ayatesart That means content ends at 40 and it’s just a free for all ball pit of despair and ganking.

I mean…that’s my guess.

I have been trying to play ASTA for a week… I keep getting this error “Over login fail count”.
Already tried with 5 new accounts, still same problem. Anyone else with this problem?

It’s a fun little WoW-clone!
Level 5 Archer, so far.
Definitely worth checking out if you want something light n fluffy to play.

I thought I heard it’s open PvP at lvl 40, so not sure how that works…

I wanted to give this game a try. But they won’t let me play! 
I’m an Aussie and apparently Australian IPs are blocked! Go figure!
