    I'm going to give it a shot again, downloading it right now. I'm thinking I should perhaps choose a Thief class, something of melee that wont use tonnes of potions - I don't want to play the Cygnus knights since the main classes are apparently acquiring a major buff... but...

    Can someone mind explaining all the classes to me in short?
    I left before they released Pirate / Gunslinger, so I'm not sure what's what.

    Edit:
    Say for those trying the Big Bang, what server will youse be on? I think it'd be nice if we could do PQ's and stuff together.
    Play a Brawler/Thunder Breaker. If you get your timing right, you won't be hit because of the invincibility frames :P

    Other than the fact that Duey doesn't work and that I can only switch to adjacent channels on the channel selection window, I have no problems running MS on Windows 7 64-bit :P

    I'm having 3 issues that's preventing me from enjoying it. So, perhaps I should play a ranged/magic class instead...

    There's a latency issue. Usually when I played it, if I swung a spear - It'd hit, as such every character has that 0.8 second time where they lift their weapon to swing it - But when I time it ahead of that 0.8 second, and the animation shows it hits; It wont.
    I have to hit them as they're in my range in my view, as such when they're right in front of my face - If they're coming to me, I'll get hit.

    The menu lags. The hotkeys to open windows doesn't and stuff, but I have to click the hotkeys menu button about 9 times before it'll open.

    I was doing an PQ with someone 2 levels higher than me, I was a Warrior, they were a Dawn Warrior - I was dealing 19~120 damage, they were doing 120~480...

    Oh, that reminds me of another issue.

    Usually, monsters have static HP in which say, if it's 100 HP and you hit them for 60 - 60 to a total of 120, they'd die.
    Yet... monsters are being a bit weird, at first I questioned if they removed monsters having static HP because I would deal 80, the 60 and 50 then it'd die - Yet then I would wind up doing 19, and 30 and it'd die.
    I wondered if they made it so monsters go from # to ## HP, rather than just set in stone.
    But, Three Snails is bugged, it doesn't use up a snail - So since it always hits for 40, I discovered that 3 hits for a Stump kills them, their HP is still static... the damage formulae or something is just bugged.

    I honestly havent had any problems other than server changing, and that started PRE BB. Dunno what to say there.

    However, Cygnus Knights ARE stronger than Explorers. They 6 AP per level instead of 5.

    That's lame. I understand by the end, you get 280 more AP, but... I think the Cygnus Knights shouldn't be stronger, but the same damage, as the Explorers. That way, they're on par with Explorers, but in the end Explorers bust their lip in damage at level 121.

    They pretty much made it so everyone can be a Cygnus knights, and only no-lifers can be the Explorers, because they'd be the only ones stuffed to go past 120.

    Explorers are equal to Cygnus in terms of stats at 134, not 121; the Three Snails skill doesn't require a snail shell anymore, since like a year ago.

    I made a Pirate, and to say I'm liking it. It's quite fast in attacking.
    I'm concerned about the cost for bullets, but I suppose I can leave a glove or two out of my set to buy bullets.

    Level 19 so far.

    Level 24... I'm quite enjoying this new update, especially the fact I can actually acquire money now.
    From the Kerning PQ, 50 of these consumable items dropped that gave me some great moneys.
    Also three maps right of Nauticus (The submarine map), the Blue Pigs give 100 Mesos a Ribbon which is great. Plus the additional armors and such you get from them.

    But I'm having more fun as a Pirate/Slinger, really. The dash/jump move is great, consumes very little MP; And I'm crying out potions because I have that many -- Which is great, I'd rather sell extra potions than never have any.

    Also those class hats are superb. I like my Wolfy looking hat - I'm gonna keep it forever and ever.

    Unfortunately I must ingest upon an ritual known as sleeping, despite being 70% away from level 30 =<

    If anyone wants to PQ or something sometime, I'm up for it. Drop your game name and I'll add you to friends list, or something.

    I made myself a brawler today, and just hit 38. I am looking forward to getting him to 50 tomorrow.

    Edit: I ended up not sleeping (lol) and just hit 54. O.M.G. Brawlers are amazing. I mean, absolutely amazing.

    Aran: 56-63
    DB: 46-61
    Brawler: 1-54

    Amazing. BB, i love you.

    And heres a quick guide, got me to 54 in a day. (about 13 hours)

    Tutorial to 10 (I skipped and grinded on snails to 10 just to do it lol)
    10-15: Class quests
    15-18: Winston's quests (near perion)
    18: Class hat boss battle
    18-23: Grind on dark axe stumps near perion ( I am sure better methods exist)
    23-28: Alligs near kerning
    28-30: KPQ
    30-36: Mushroom Kingdom
    36-38 (or 40): Blake's dream
    38 (or 40) - 42: Cpq grinding on Rombots
    42-54: TRUCKERS. OMGOMG TRUCKERS. I swear the exp will be nerfed asap.
    54-60: Truckers.
    60-65: Truckers.
    65-70: Truckers. (or GSPQ) (Rombots would be ideal, however their 90K hp is a little daunting)
    70: TBA, however, I will go directly to ludibrium after my job advancement, which has level 7x monsters.

    I will also be trying out Ariant, which has become a level 70 area.

    Edit 2:

    If anyone is having any trouble I will be no lifing the game today (Friday) from probably about 3 P.M EST to 5 AM EST. And when I wake tomorrow (Saturday) until I drop as well. When one of my characters hits level 70 I will be traveling to Ariant. I will also be playing my level 22 warrior to (at least) 30.

    In other words, I will be on almost constantly, so please, Don't bother to join Bellocan and ask for help, or just a leveling companion.

    Brawler: SBLgandalf
    Dualer: DurarBrades
    Aran: OromisGleadr
    Warrior: TehSmackz

    Edit 3:

    Okay, so, I was wondering about everyones opinion on damage for every class. I don't want to do damage calculations or look at damage charts, I want to know what classes you have seen fighting at high levels and gone, holy **** thats ridiculous.

    Cygnus knights dont count....

    So far for me its been..

    Dragon Knight (Level 73) Hitting 22K.
    Chief Bandit (Level 84) Hitting 5K-7K in 3-6 hits.
    Hermit (Level 74) Dealing almost 6k Damage with lucky seven but also with shadow partner.

    Thats all I can list right now for AMAZING damage. Let me know what you have seen please.

    Gratz on the levels, Ellondu.

    I'm finding Gunslinger to be quite amazing, myself. Slinger is fast, and though it lacks damage compared to other classes, it has an amazing DPS and early mobbing.
    I have an 25% crit rate, I can hit 3 monsters at once with Invisible shot, or I can do high-like DPS with a two shot skill (Single target), increasing chances of an Critical shot-- There's a bomb skill where it does an AoE, it arcs so I can abuse heights and ledges as well as poisons (Came greatfully useful in Carnival PQ when I was low on HP, I could keep attacking due to the bomb arc.)-- I'm soon to acquire an skill where you basically do a long distance jump (Recoil shot), and I also get a fun (but useless; Only leveled it to 1.) skill where I slowly hover to the ground.

    Check this DPS out!
    It's apparently faster than the bow's one too.

    I also later on in the next job advancement, get a fire and ice skill... not to mention summoning additional monsters to assist me.

    Level 44 now~ Still Carnival PQ'ing.

    I quite like this update. Less grinding to get to medium levels, also I actually have money to afford things like bullets and armor -- I also havn't bought one potion yet, I still have a tonne of newbie potions to use.

    .
    I don't even know what that stuff is.

    But I like the Carnival PQ, it saves me using potions and stuff. Though, I don't get loot, the XP is still amazing when you win.
    It boosted me 8 levels in one day so, I'm fine with it.
    Don't forget the Spiegelman's Necklace. The +1 All stats and +28 Wep def is always nice.

    I'll stick to it until about, level 46~47 or so.
