Hi, I just started playing and I’m finding it really hard to get into this game. One of things I find frustrating is a lack of a minimap. There’s a map in our journal, all it needs is a ‘you are here’ arrow, a zoom, and some quest objective dots.
Another thing I find very frustrating is the aiming with the bow for the ranger class. It is way too unforgiving for a bow that is extremely hard to be accurate with. It needs a visual landing zone like the movement teleport or something to help with aiming. I was standing in front of a target dummy, pulling the string back to my cheek the exact same way, and it would shoot different distances more than half the time. It could also use a little aim assist. It is incredibly frustrating missing by a pixel multiple times around a target. If you are within pixels of an enemy target it should snap to the target.
If nothing else work on the bow physics, in oculus home and vrchat I am way more accurate with those bows than the bulky unintuitive Orbus bow.
I think the starting area is a bit too hard as well. If you are alone it is very easy to die to foxes, stags, and sprites, I know it’s an mmo but it shouldn’t be so hard to solo a starting zone. You need easy mobs to solo to get comfortable with your class so you can feel like you’re being productive while playing a game, standing in front of a target dummy to learn your class is boring.
The fishing was also way too slow paced, it feels like a chore. I hated casting numerous times before I could catch a fish, how long it takes to reel a fish in, and how quickly the lures break.
Otherwise the game seems cool, I mean I took the dive and bought it for a reason. I’m glad to see there’s more character customization coming, although I think it would be cool to add some other races. I tried to make a drow elf with the darkest skin in game and white hair and was quickly reminded how racist the internet can be while I was in town.
Since I paid so much for the game and I played too long for steams refund policy I’m hoping this feedback doesn’t fall on deaf ears. The game has a lot of potential and I was pretty excited to try it. I hope some of these issues are addressed in the expansion.
