    The Translation of this is obviously: "Don't expect this to even be worth anyone's time unless they're already Geared A.F. and can routinely Class-pick META game their way to the final rewards" -- except that they're not telling us anywhere in the Patch notes WHAT that threshold is.

    ...which completely contradicts the entire premise of Instanced Dungeon PickUp group content that sells itself primarily on helping normies "Gear up TOGETHER". And You people all crapped on SavageRift until no one was even doing it anymore, but at least THAT mode of PVE wasn't AS gear dependent as it was Coordination based. So instead you just get another RICH-GET-RICHER circle jerk for people who already paid $1000's to speed-enhance their Boss Gear

    There is no gearscore requirement. Not officially.

    Round Monster Difficulty
    1 The monsters that spawn in Round 1 are fairly easy to deal with. Around 200 AP should be good enough to clear the round.

    2 Round 2 is more difficult than Round 3. Make sure to quickly get rid of the Orc Mages, as their ranged attacks can deal significant damage to both the party and the altar if they add up in number and get out of hand.

    3 The monsters get noticeably stronger in Round 3. It's recommended for the party to stay around the altar and defend, as Skeleton Wolves are very quick and they can overwhelm the altar in a heartbeat. Do note that the boss of this round can summon mobs.

    4 The monsters are as tough as Aakman mobs. One thing to look out for are mobs that carry bombs. Although they have slow movement speed, the bombers are powerful enough to 100-0 a player. If they reach the altar, the altar will lose around 40% HP. It's recommended for the party to get rid of the bombers before they walk down the stairs towards the altar. (Ranged classes are most suitable for dispatching the bombers.)

    5 The monsters are as tough as Sycraia Abyssal Ruins/Hystria mobs. They're extremely powerful and should be approached with care. Your primary goal will be to remove the archers as quickly as possible (for the same reason as stage 2). The boss of this round is also very powerful. Surviving this round without a fairy is very difficult.

    Good luck with Stages 6-10.

    I love how you automatically assume every geared player p2w'd. Your state of mind is off.

    I didn't miss his point.

    His point is based around accessibility. It is accessible. You just wont progress far. But as you grow in GS you will get further and further.

    HE is missing the point of the content and complaining that only the super rich and geared will get PEN gear from it. Ironically if they are doing the 10th level they are already PEN soooooooo its a moot point. The lower levels provide items to help players increase their gear.

    I didn't miss the point. But the point he was making was moot the moment he started crying about people spending real money to progress...... ANY bdo player knows spending money in this game doesn't get you **** progression wise unless of course you count burning your money for a gamble as progression.

    Furthermore since you all dont seem to get it.

    When you are geared in say all PEN and TET... . in order to progress you need literally 10's of billions to make any progress.

    So it stands to reason that GEARED players need more income by design. While lower geared players.... in all honesty don't. Someone sitting with all TET accessories needs to be pulling major silver to even try to attempt PEN.

    As I said a couple weeks ago in regards to this dungeon, the optimal setup is going to be at least 2 witchards and more than likely a mystic for the sucking.

    This stupid mode could have been more skill oriented and fun if there wasn't the altar that needs protected. It's nothing more than an AP/class check.

    It was a small point of this post, but you really shouldn't use this.

    Why? It's just plain wrong.

    You can buy TET items and even PEN on occasion via the Market place.

    You could also Caphra boost this way.

    So you should avoid making statements like that.

    This is cute but what does this have to do with the point, which is accessibility of Altar of Blood.

    A better question is WHY DID YOU DIRECT THIS TOWARD ME when it was clearly responding to the bold text, you "conveniently missed" .

    What seem to be convenient for you is deflect the convo from your hating OP buddy being called out on his nonsense into your favorite propaganda theme.

    Well that's PA... not only their pve content is very poor, but the tiny they release are just made to push player to grind so p2w af...

    At this point i dont even know why their "bother" create class with a pretty decent gameplay because all that is nearly totaly useless... ( well they bothered less for that point with the shai and his 3 skills )

    Success in whatever PVE content you choose is exclusively gated behind your RNG. No new zone or content will fix that.

    I saw a very false statement and advised the poster on how to improve his arguments/statements.
    You can leave the Emo behind.

    The amount of money you would need to spend to be geared through that method is ludicrous. We are talking less than 1% of the population in BDO with enough money for that to even be a option.

    So no my point still stands that they didn't make new content for people playing like that as the original OP insinuated.
