I just started the game. The players really are pretty awesome.
I’ve only played mage throughout my entire MMORPG history so of course I had to get a wand.
And the idea of casting spell by drawing runes was so cool and exciting to me but unfortunately it is soooooo lame…Like 90% of the spells can’t cast and the runes we draw, instead of summoning circles it’s just some silly little symbols WHICH even if I traced it from my book (that requires me to use a gesture that twists and breaks my wrist to summon) DON’T EVEN CAST! lol like did no one play test this?
I was expecting some next level japanese summoning circle for crazy spells and not draw and arrow and have my wand fart on me.
And honesty if I trace it through my book and it still doesn’t cast then there’s something wrong with the mechanic. I see people casting 5 spells in like 2 seconds which I assume it’s some end game mechanic but why does it have to be end game. Why can’t it actually be fun and not frustrating?
Like everything about this game screams it’s meant for players 10+ to be able to play and yet everything about it is rather confusing and frustrating. I’d rather draw a complicated summoning circle with less accuracy and have spells cast than tracing my book on a 1 stroke silly letter and have my wand fart in my face.
Like I can draw mana shield with a circle and it’ll cast while fireball, yes fireball, won’t even cast when I trace straight from the book.
Is there any plan for improving this? I’m looking for a mmo for my friends and I to play. If theres no plan on making this class actually fun to play then I’m just gonna refund and look somewhere else.
PS. The Wizard is super fun if you like spell casting class. you actually feel like a powerful mage instead of an idiot who cant draw a pointy B. Like no game should make the player feel stupid at the simplest mechanics. Games are supposed to bring player join and fun. Like I can see challenges but this isn’t challenge. It’s just straight up not play tested. Why pay for something that’s only going to make you frustrated.
