We didn't know about the epheria/trina **** until kakao/pa said it wasn't intended. I still stick by the logic that the 1000+ sea monsters on every channel do need an efficient way to be killed, if not than it is bad game design. Also, I don't understand why you'd find any of this hilarious. This is just the stuff that has been brought to public knowledge and this stuff is so game changing that people are adjusting their entire day to day playstyles around them, and after they buy the pearls/make the proper item/lvl this or that it gets nerfed. The people who have been reaping the rewards of it for 5-6+ months get to keep all the **** they made and all the people just literally getting into it get to enjoy it for like 1 week before nerf. Nothing funny about any of it. In fact it makes me not even want to play. Me and my guild got to seamen hunt for 1/2 a week before it got nerfed. Want to know what you need to seamen hunt? Every1 on this spreadsheet made/turned in 50 shakatu seals/pre-ordered/bidded to get their epherias. After that they went and bought weight items for the characters they sailed on via pearl shop and loyalty. After that they went and spent 3-4 hours a day leveling their sailing to skilled 1. After that they bought diving suits to go dive for the blue gear for their boats. After that they spent around 1bil of meme frags, conc stones, and 100+ artisans to +7 it all. After that they spent 4 hours doing a quest for a boatman for their boat. After that they spent 25,000 energy getting sgrade on all the sea monsters. After that they helped farm/process stuff for the guild galleys. After that they bought pearls for tears of wind to rez their boats incase they die in the middle of the ocean. After they were all set up they farmed 3-16hours a day. Got to do it 4 days before the nerf. I got to use the trina matchlock for less than a week too before it got nerfed. What do you need for the horse exploit? A horse with forechop (50% chance to get this skill on a horse when leveling up) A +10 matchlock. It costs like 40-100mil to make, or is free if you got the mats to craft the matchlocks and weapon stones saved up. Some mediocre green horse gear. The end. For incomes that are almost the same in worth the ease to get into on or the other is drastic. On top of that sailing takes forever to learn and before this horse exploit hunting took forever to learn as well. Between the two the hunting exploit is the most ridiculous and damaging as it takes practically nothing to get into it and it fks over every1 on the hunting ranking. People been doing all of this **** for 5-6 months too. Soon as every1 else gets into it it gets nerfed. That is what I don't like. Anyways, sooner this newest unintended exploit gets nerfed the better. Tired of getting into a new game mode and having it get destroyed. Still saving up t1 mats cuz processing will get **** on soon as drieghan hits. Only been waiting on that for half a year. Only been waiting to grind mobs <Hardcore> style for half a year cuz who wants to grind mobs <Hardcore> when they aren't dropped caphras stones? This game. Hands down the buggiest/dumbest fken mmorpg I've ever played/seen in 20+ years of mmo gaming.
