GMS v.90: Big Bang

So what came with Big Bang?

New skills, maps, and a whole new look.

The new UI is SHINY.  And BRIGHT.  Look at those buttons on the lower-right corner.  They are very, very well-lit.

I think it looks ok.  I still prefer the old one, though.

To everyone spazzing out about the SP resets: CALM DOWN.  They’re giving one to each character. Don’t believe me?  Look!

If you log in, you’ll get a free SP reset

so… yea.  Log onto all your characters.  I don’t even need this… meh.

There are several already well-know updates, like the new crit system, accuracy system, and damage formula.  I’m gonna try to address the lesser-known changes in Big Bang.

The Big Bang update reset a few quests.  Of them include Neo City and Dragon Rider.  So… yea.  Go get those docs again!  Sigh.

Character creation also has a few new perks.  There are now several more hairstyle, face, and equipment options for you, and some of these are actually pretty good!  The new clothes and weapons are tradeable but NOT cash items (they look nice though).

I forgot what I was going to say… hm…

Edelstein has been added to the world map.  It is currently inaccessible from Victoria, but I don’t know about Orbis.  I’m pretty sure you can’t go yet.

Resistance comes out on Dec 20, I believe.  That’s what the resistance exp/weapon event suggests.  That’s pretty soon.  The aforementioned event is also doable on ALL characters, even those above the quest level.  If, say, you’re lv 120, you’ll start out with the lv 20 quest for the capsule, then the next day, you’ll be able to complete the quest for the lv 40 weapon box.  It keeps going up until it catches up with your level.

That means I have the 3 boxes i need ^^

let’s see… If you still don’t have the upgradeable ring, you can get it AND upgrade it in the same day.

The Hot Time event is pretty strange and seems to contradict what they said about the SP resets.  I don’t really need them anyways (small changes to Aran skills and I didn’t miss anything on my Dual Blade).  We’ll just have to see

Glitches:

Truckers have insane exp (2.5k-ish hp for almost 500 exp!), so everyone is training there.  The new accuracy formula means that you almost definitely WILL have some misses when you’re below the monster’s level, so now higher leveled training grounds are emptier..  This has not been removed…

Ghost ship PQ’s winning exp bonus is giving much more than you should get (like 1 level per pq).

Not much else.  I’m surprised that Nexon has done this much without messing up.
