Yeah, I think the melee classes are a lot more interesting to play but damn power shards really cost a lot past 25-30. The melee animations for attacks are generally really nice, though at least all the various spells look different and there are variations in the casting animations too.

Different studios behind the game. City of heroes was made by a US studio, whereas Aion was made by a Korean one (hence the grind). NCsoft just published it.

As for why? Well, city of heroes speaks to the marvel/DC fans, but not so much the anime fans. The heavily final fantasy influences Aion does.

I rarely use power shards. The only time I use them is on raid bosses for in PvP. They're not really cost effective otherwise.

Power Shards waste too fast for me to bother. Just the buffs from Cooking, and the extra resist from Alchemy is enough for me. Also, since the surveys no longer give Rank gear, I suppose NCSoft is trying to promote professions once again.

How much have things changed in the past few years? Most memoriable things for me were a load of midgets, gold spammers and months of grinding abyss points for decent gear. Please tell me they've fixed stuff :P

Yep, I still see this in Aion.

You don't need to PvP for PvP gear anymore. You can just spend 20 minutes a day doing solo crucible stuff and 1 pvp match (which you can lose) and you'll have a full set of virtually the best PvP gear in 2 months.

Also, they seemed to have massively increased gold drops across the board. When I played during launch, I saw maybe 7 golds from 1-50 total. Yesterday, my SM just got 2 random golds off of world mobs (level 25 still). Today, in the same lower Abyss dungeon, 3 golds from random normal mobs. Ran the 50-55 solo dungeon twice and got a gold each run. Seems like it's MUCH easier to get geared now.

I see, so they fixed the whole grinding for PvP gear then. Everything else still stands though, gold spammers flood the LFG chat. While I see tons of midgets everywhere @.@

You're going to see weird designs in any game that allows full customization of the character model, it's just going to happen.

After blocking 1 spammer I haven't really seen any more in Siel. I'd say it's actually a pretty good game now compared to how it was at launch, especially for free.

Some days it is just impossible to get the mentor quests done. Couldn't get it done on any of my characters today. Well probably try again later.

There are a good portion of Animesuki members on Siel on Elyos side. I hope you find a legion to join If you need any help, feel free to ask on the forums.

Is there? The only one I routinely see is Xion. Also after spending time on Kahrun Asmo side, there is a ton of foreign language guilds there. So many recruiting in LFG that I was adding to my block list to stop seeing it.

Oh right I forgot about those things. I'll login in a bit then, I want to get my gladiator up to 30 and then get back to leveling my chanter.

I'm making a temporary new character on Asmodian Kahrun. He's a Templar named "Hooves" of course

Edit: Although in the end, I'll probably just use him as a banker.

I thought you already had a templar?

Anyway my three characters I'm playing the most at the moment are
Siel Elyos
Chanter Veriti
Gladiator Cabled

Kahrun Asmodian
Assassin Yseris

If I'm not on one of those three I'm probably not on, or messing around on some random new character.

Indeed I do, just an alt.

Siel Elyos
Tyrve (Main focus for now, so you'll see me mostly on this guy)
Hooves

Kahrun Asmodian
Tryve (main)
Hooves

If I'm not on either of the Hooves, I'm just on my main. They are all Templars by the way The reason why I'm making them all Templars is to try different builds individually. Since I primarily focus on 1 class only in MMOs. Although I'm only going to be PvPing in the Abyss with my Elyos main.
