Mabinogi

Unread postby TheXev » July 10th, 2008, 11:50 pm

Well, I've been playing Mabinogi for awhile and am suffering from withdraw. I don't have steady internet atm, and am really board while looking for work... but playing on a modem is near impossible for anything other then part-time jobs. I've never really gotten into any other MMO until Mabinogi, and I really think its unique combat system is the reason (Smash, Counter-attack, Def... melee combat isn't mindless like in other MMO's). While I don't think the community is as good as RO (back in the wonderful year of 1998), it's pretty close.

I finally beat G1 quest last weekend... but getting others to play this game is pretty difficult since its only open to the US and Oceanic regions.

Anyone else playing this game? If you've given up on it after playing it, there is a lot of advice i can give you to make it easier (not just doing "lack hack").

I'm playing on Mari btw...

Anyone else have comments, experiences?

Played it but didn't like it. Was playing it on a laggy server in China so the fights never really worked out in my favour....
Now that Nexon's there, I might reconsider... Hope it won't lag. However, I suppose it has some really interesting points for a MMO, and I HATE grinding.

Played it as well. Got frustrated after the lag time kept screwing me over when i tried to guard. The monsters later on seemed to do a lot of damage as well, but maybe that's just cause I tried taking on a monster much higher than me. The skill system seems a bit 'hard' to lvl up. For some skills i just don't understand how you're supposed to get it higher, even though I read the skill requirements thoroughly. Overall the game's pretty interesting, but yeah, the lag kinda messes it up.

Is there an Oceanic dedicated server? I was playing the US server, so lag was sort of inevitable.

I don't see what's so hard about googling it.

...Took a look and the Wikipedia entry, and decided that it's not for me. I'm no good with MMORPGs that you have to play that often.

Well, it's one of few MMO that have actually exciting fighting system, as opposed to pure grinding... There isn't really an MMO that isn't time consuming...

I PM'd you with a 'backdoor' way to get access into the server.

you basically need to make the game/server it connects to detect you as an usa resident since it autoblocks the rest of the world.

it works like crap here. lots of lag, slowdown and deaths caused by lag. i like how it doesn't focus on insane level grinding as much as other mmorpgs, but it's no fun trying to fight when the server's against you too.

Played it. There's is a slight issue with the Nexon version. Reborn cost money and since your character grows up...
Well I didn't play much of it and the reborn issue is only for those who play for long periods, I didn't really like it.

That's quite right. Even if you could get registered as being in the right residential area, you will experience lag in the game server, which is a very bad disadvantage in the game because you need to input commands with little time to spare. If you still want to give it a shot just to see what the gameplay is like though, I'll send you some instructions. I don't recommend getting too high though, you'll rage fast due to the many deaths by lag.

I hate when game lags, pretty much ruins everything... So there is no need to send me the instructions. Thank you though!
