Action MMO Vindictus adds the rapier-wielding character Tessa in latest update

    
5

Just this past June we were wondering whatever happened to Nexon’s action combat MMO Vindictus, a game that launched back in 2010. At the time we noted that the game is still online and rounded up some updates of note over the past few months, so consider this a supplement to that report as well as an alert of the game’s newest update, which introduces the title’s 18th character.

Say hello to Tessa, a woman who wields a rapier, gem magic, and (presumably) the number of an outstanding tailor. Tessa’s playstyle is very much about swift strikes, using her magic to leave brands on enemies and dispelling those brands with counterattacks. The landing page offers a taste of this new character’s combat style, along with events related to her arrival like a leveling event, a hot time event, and free outfits for the character among other things. As for the rest of the patch’s content, there’s new wardrobe skills added and an update to the Brandish Slot among other things.

Played for a bit. If you love dress up, this game is it. I have no idea if there is any RPing going along with the dress up, but the costumes are really something. That really is my overriding take away.

Oh, and combat is good, grind is exceptionally off putting and dungeons get samey boring after a bit, making grinding even less fun.

But, OH! The avatar dress up!

And because I’ll never miss an opportunity to remember the Xtacles, and the topic of this update is a woman wielding a “rapier”…I bring you, the tale of Rapier Ape, who is even rapier than rape ape, and clearly a menace to society.

I haven’t played in probably 9 years or so, but I remember that the combat was great but the progression systems were utterly baffling in a way that was clearly intended to drive microtransactions. I assume not much has changed in that regard?

I looked into this recently but I haven’t played myself, so consider this second hand info:
You get a bunch of time limited super powerful equipment and boosts that makes you able to breeze through all of season 1+2 and get to “endgame”. The game is p2w but people don’t seem to mind it that much so I would guess that they haven’t made it worse recently. The issue that most people are angry at is the exceptionally poor customer service.

The issue that most people are angry at is the exceptionally poor customer service.

Can vouch, Nexon customer support pretty much turned me off of financially supporting the company altogether. Nexon really doesn’t seem to want to invest in their western operations, even if they’re trying the occasional non-MMO like Livelock.

I’d pay some good money for a “Vindictus 2.0” with a proper open world (plus plenty of dungeons) and some touched up non-PC graphics (PC’s still look freakin phenomenal, especially given how old the game is). The combat is probably my favorite action combat of any MMO and the classes I played were a boatload of fun.
