Blade and Soul rounds out its Nightfall Sanctuary raid

    
12

What MMORPG actually releases a fully-fleshed out raid in this day and age? You have to milk that content drip by drip, giving players just enough to be challenging but not enough so that the top raiding guilds blow through it in one evening.

Blade and Soul seems perfectly fine with the current model of chopping up raids, as it only delivered half of the Nightfall Sanctuary so far. The rest is coming on June 20th, when part two arrives with even more bosses, areas, and rewards for 12-player groups to tackle. It’s in this update that the final showdown against the Grand Celestial Emperor is going to take place, with appropriate legendary gear dropping for anyone who can dethrone this shiny jerk.

“Your raid will need to work in perfect harmony if you’re to have any chance against the Grand Celestial Emperor. More than a few will fall before him and his relentless pursuit of power,” said NCsoft.

Looking at the picture, did they just rip off the Nekros design from Warframe?

MonkaS….

To give you an idea of how difficult this last raid is, it took Korea one month after release to beat the first boss and they are uber geared compared to us. So, piecemealing the raid is hardly felt since most will not have cleared the second boss when the final installment of the raid of drops.

As for the rest? We will see. Need a good bit more than just a raid to keep the masses happy.

So is this the drop with the new class?

No. It is dropping at the end of the year. Korea is getting it this summer and we are about 2 to 3 months behind, I believe.

That’s too far off. :(

Ah, but in the meantime, we got some more story to work through. Our little Hongmoon clan is missing one. :)

Ooh, new class. I need to get caught up on it! Usually new class = new character slot for free, so I will be happy no matter what.

Oh,yeah. You are right! Last time the promotion included an additional slot and an instant 50. Not bad..

So don’t you worry Vexia, catching up will be easy.

The new class is a Warrior who will wield a giant sword. It will be a tank class with lots of health by default. The key feature besides being super tough is that it will use its own health to pull off special abilities that protect and heal a party and himself or herself.

If true to form, it will be the most OP tank in the history of the game when it launches. But it will also get the nerf hammer after a few months just like the Warlock and Gunner. Lol.

But, no. Lyns will not be able to partake in this tanky class. Sorry, Utah. Little Lyns just won’t be able to carry around that giant sword without tilling the earth behind them or getting blown around because the sword acts like an airplane wing.

All good news for the most part, except… C’mon, B&S, let me live out my dream of being a small tank! This class sounds really appealing for me (maybe not the apparently inevitable nerfs at some point lol), so I’ll have to pick another race to try it out for sure.

Reader

Heh. A Lyn tank. And why not? I’m all for it. Maybe we can make the giant weapon into a mini-giant weapon. Why not? Lol.

Yup. I’ll be rolling one. It should be fun. I’ll probably go Gon since it sounds like a Gon class.

Utah!? Do I look like Mitt Romney to you? >.<

…err, I got that. I was more interested in the other rumored ranged archer/hunter class that Lyn's could participate in. :)
