"Speak of the devil!"
I know I am necroing in a way. I was seeking help regarding this particular fight and saw this post.
I'm still around. I am still playing. I play BOTH games and enjoy both of them.
I just quit annoying people on the forums with my suggestions since so many found them so offensive.
I am creating suggestions on a website, as well as helpful advice to mostly new players and consolidating links to 3 of the best resources I know of so people would not have to search for help for the game, which I did share briefly, although one of the mods took down the link because it originally contained mild profanity. Now it doesn't. I will share the link with whoever desires it.
I don't expect people to feel sorry for me, although I do suffer from Post-traumatic Stress Disorder and Bipolar Disorder. Gaming is one of my primary coping skills to deal with depression and anxiety. So I am a very hardcore gamer, I spend usually 4 hours a day on days I am not working between my games. Occasionally as many as 6 - 8, although usually around 4. I have three or four games I play (two of them being Dragon Fable and AQ Worlds, they are my two favorites) and I have mastered all of them, top level, best items (at least for the most part), etc.
I was playing AQ Worlds mostly for a while (still was playing Dragon Fable though), now I am mostly playing Dragon Fable, I cycle back and forth.
Indeed, I do believe some of my suggestions are absolutely in order. Possibly not all, but some. The game is amazing, don't get me wrong, I would not have spent hundreds of dollars (at least $500 on Dragon Fable) between the DA, DK, and DC's if I didn't think so. Although I indubitably think it could use some new items and improvements. Although I do believe people should earn them by serious grinding / farming. They should not be for the casual gamer. They should be for the elite gamer who seeks to get the most out of the game possible and truly be at the apex of the game.
My suggestions do not break the balance, at least I don't feel they do. There is no competition in Dragon Fable. There is no "top character" list. No PvP. No interaction with other players whatsoever except on the forums. It's just defeating bosses (such as Inn at the Edge of Time challenges), dungeons, quests, monsters, etc. If people get a SLIGHT boost from my suggested items, I seek for them to farm / grind for them to earn them. To give them something more to do. I admit I got some of my ideas from AQ Worlds, and perhaps some of my ideas are a better fit there, although so what? Slightly better gear especially is not unreasonable to ask for, if it's EARNED.
Inn at the Edge of Time fights are getting more and more challenging.
Many of us have racked up a large amount of defender's medals, myself included. I am almost capped personally. I was briefly capped except for I tried "Gotta Start Somewhere" again with no avail. And since I've spent all my defender's medals on everything worth spending them on (except for food for inn challenge fights), they're just sitting in my inventory.
Once you've reached the pinnacle of the game, except for Inn at the Edge of time fights and when there is a war, it takes 30 minutes to complete all there is to do for that week (especially if you're a Doom Knight and / or Chaosweaver), unless you just want to grind EXP and Au from the Ninja arena.
It's not unreasonable for there to be something to strive for. For free players as well, although ESPECIALLY for Dragon Amulet holders.
Anyway, that's all I am going to say, before I get flamed, at least any more than I probably already will be.
On a side note, there is no level cap, or if there is, it's 91. It just takes a large amount of effort to achieve it for almost no benefit, and there is no gear beyond 90. Personally, RIGHT NOW, I do not desire a level cap unless there is an option to upgrade existing gear somewhere, however you obtain it, defeating the bosses for an upgrade item, defender's medals, Au, I don't care. DC items (especially LQS items) will probably be BMM, although I don't think all should be that easy. Regardless, I personally like the gear I have. :) Although if they do give an option to upgrade the gear, sure, bring the level cap on! :)
