DDR: I like it, I love it. Since nowadays my multitasking activity is listening to podcasts, it doesn't matter for me if I have to keep looking at the screen. But I see how that would be annoying for people actually watch something else, screen minimized as much as possible, too.
Oh, this one is also important for the game because it's a product of the team keeping adding new features into game, sure it might not make sense canon-wise (Uaanta randomly choosing a tile instead of directly targeting us) and might be nothing more than a hindrance to the players but that's no reason not to try and implement your ideas into game. If it's good, keep it. If it sucks, remove it.
Background: AMAZING! I didn't expect Myalos to fight against 8 big boys though...
First of all, I want to thank @SeigusDarkon on this one, although i disagree with most, there are some important points made.
Notha Ly'Ehr: Notha has pretty much became my idol/crush with this last update. I like how this Saga is about an atheist girl wanting revenge, but in this case against actual gods in flesh and mana. I can't say what she does is right, but what has been done to her isn't right either, you can't expect to mess up with people (in this case make them waste their WHOLE LIVES away with religioculture so they don't improve and become a problem) and have them not lash out on you. But rather than irl religion, I resemble this to bad parenting more, being influenced by your parents constantly throughout your life only to realize most of the things that seeped into you (and made "you") stem from their own problems, insecurities and don't really have actual value. Then show them a person that's raised by a rightminded family, let them see how much they've accomplished when you've wasted your life away JUST BECAUSE of your parents. Yep, that's probably what Notha felt when she saw the wonders of The Exalted: What she/her people could have been VS what she/her people is...
Obviously, ramming right into the Avatars' firmament with an ancient mechascythe dragon is not the most sensible course she could've taken. But honestly, if we could choose a fight in this war (and how I would LIKE THAT) and had Avatars not become sensible folks right after they talked to Lock and Key (and if not for Uaanta... dang the list keeps going on and on!), I would choose Notha's side, propagation over stagnancy!
Gauntlet Mode: Love it. I wonder if some people are upset that such a feature comes with a DDR packet...
I've already gotten used to it, can't stoop to fighting foot waves now, lol!
Chain Waves: Well, it has no downsides and provides a little upside.
Music: Long ago, on a game forum I saw a comment about Dragonfable, saying it didn't have music for quests. I really hope after more than a decade that person got to give this game another shot!
Uannta: I find it interesting how the culture of Lhe'Shyiac is different from real life religion and want to point that out. Because even after learning that all of it was a deception, she still says "And yet, I still trust you, Makers. To guide our path.", because duh, they're right there. So, in a way but not in a way that they thought, they've lived up to Avatars bidding and it DID have a meaning.
Now, if I lack Lore lore can someone fill me in, why did Avatars left the other parts of the world unchecked? What good is having some people stagnating in order if there are many other propagating in chaos?
8 VS 1: Can't say anything for other classes but for CW transcende rain attack doesn't cause soft stuck (as someone else called it), but Rip skill does. And it's more satisfying to see each elementphage dying one by one slowly haha.
EDIT: This got solved, I'm grateful! Now Domination hits faster and Rip doesn't cause stuck.
The Respite: Well, this is confusing. From what I understand humans (or maybe other sentient beings too) can self-balance and the Avatars and artificial sentient beings like Myalos can't. That's why they're susceptible to being "infected". It's kinda sad to see Myalos as a "tool" but if this is true their "good" is also more of an infection and less of a choice. Considering this it's pretty likely that Notha did just talk her way into Myalos, which might even be a good thing. Though she refuses to do the same with Avatars, since if he fails it's game over, Avatars are too dangerous (and complicated, seriously, what are they?) to tinker with. Ah, I need to replay the whole Saga and ponder...
The break is over, back to BATTLING ON!
PS: Hopefully I'll be able to post this one, the forum has blocked me whenever I tried to post :/
