Blade & Soul previews the dungeons arriving in Theater of Mystery

    
5

It may be safely concluded that the eponymous Theater of Mystery in Blade & Soul’s update of the same name does not refer to new dungeons. Not just because the two new dungeons are named Dreamsong Theater and Den of the Ancients, but because we now know so much about these instances that they could not be construed as mysterious. They even include the new Dungeon Challenge mode, and you’ll need to know the dungeons really well for that, as players are completing for leaderboard slots based on the fastest clears.

There are also new events arriving, with some creepy tin man costumes in Hongsil’s Secret Storehouse. You can also access the Tower of Memory event dungeon until January 16th, take part in the Royal Raid event, hope for luck in the Joy to the Realm Jackpot event… in other words, there are plenty of fun seasonal events because of whatever holiday takes place in December. Check out the full rundown for shop prices on the official site, and read a little more about the two new dungeons in the patch on December 5th.

Well, they are trying. Heh. Not a glowing report from me on the upcoming events.

It isn’t bad, ok? I mean it will be fun and I will participate. But after a week or so, it will be back to the old grind and that is not enough over the holidays.

Forget Awakenings. I’ve learned much since my last critical posts and NCWest actually has fought for NA and EU players. I logged into an APAC server just to see Awakenings and it is obvious that NCsoft is using that player base as a testbed. It is a first-class shitshow.

On top of that, the APAC server I logged into was mercilessly pay to win. The best weapon in the game could be bought in the cash shop. And the rng to upgrade other gear is obscene including mechanics such as breaking gear during upgrades which can only be avoided via the cash shop.

But that doesn’t negate the dilemma here though. NCWest is bleeding BnS players right now. Simple tweaks would help significantly like the Lyn Warden (hint with a sledgehammer).

And it is not going to happen in December. So, this will be a dank meme yuletide in BnS. Hopefully, the storm will pass and we can look forward to a cornucopia of riches early next year.

Oh, btw, Treasure Trove is also returning for the holidays. I can hear the whale blow holes from here.

…I think they need to put the “n” back in BnS. ‘Cause it doesn’t smell right currently. Just saying. :(
