So, last time I checked in on the gaming front back in December, I was playing Skyforge… That is no longer the case. I got bored of that pretty quick. I ended up going back to World of Warcraft on a private server. I am back to playing the Warmane Ragnaros Wrath of the Lich King server. I have a max level Resto Druid, Ret Pally, and Mage. I am playing minimally now and pretty much logging in to run an ICC 25 normal and heroic each week.
Now for something new. Blade and Soul.
I was considering buying a founder’s pack for Blade and Soul and playing the beta instead of playing Skyforge, but I wasn’t sure I would like it and didn’t want to drop the RL gold on the pack. I wish I had pulled the trigger. Blade and Soul launched a few days ago and it’s pretty cool so far. The fact that I am getting started at the ground floor helps too. I am not well behind the curve. Well, I probably am since I don’t play a ton. After 3 days, I am only level 20.
My only complaint so far is the games popularity. There are 11 North American servers and all of them are packed. Unless you buy a Signature pack to get premium account access, you’ll be waiting a good amount of time to get into the game. I ended up getting the Student Bundle for 399 Ncoins, which is about $5. That gave me 7 days premium access and I was able to get right into the game. My 7 days will be up soon and I think I’ll end up getting more time. The game is pretty good.
I ended up going with what they say is the easiest class to start out with… The Summoner.
I am not currently in any position to offer advise or tips about Blade and Soul, but I may post some info on here.
I plan to play this summoner to max level and learn the ropes and then create another class as my main.
