From Soho down to Brighton I must have played em' all.

    It's a big game, just wait it out. I don't think there's much you can do other then leave your computer alone for awhile.

    What's worse is they apparently say they have a lot of stuff that isn't in the game.

    All attacks having an element and the group chaining them together for a combo?  Not in the game, despite it being talked about on their website.

    Mages casting protective bubbles to defend their party?  Not in the game.  Walls of fire to hold off foes?  Note in the game.

     

    Kinda disheartening.

    It's a free to play. Don't expect much.

    I played the beta for a bit and I didn't expect much.  That's what I got, too.  Not much.  At least in the fun department.  As much as there seems to be to the game, I couldn't maintain much interest in it. However, I do remember it being a HUGE download.  I don't remember exactly how long it took but I left it overnight and it was still downloading the next morning.

    Two points here.

    1.  That doesn't mean it is ok that they say they have features, their website talks about those features, but they aren't in the game at all.

    2.  They do have a pay system.  Sure it isn't a monthly fee, but people essentially have to pay to have good gear.

    Gear has nothing to do with cash shop (unless you are talking arcane transmutator), what you get in cash shop is primarily mounts, DQ reset, furniture for your house. You can rent a mount using DQ coins.

     

    Also the downloader bottom bar gets stuck at 10% it is known issue while it is patching so just ignore that. As long as the top status bar is moving back and forth you are good.

    Of course I am talking about the transmuter.

    I also took the whole weekend.

    It was downloading at a very slow pace, fluctating a bit between 0 and 60 kb/s.

    I had no way of fixing it, so I just let it run. After it said that the download was complete, I still had to wait about half an hour for it to really finish. Was already fearing for incorrect data.

     

    But none of that, installation went good and playing was possible without any problems.

    It is 3.4gb, and do not use their own downloader, they throttle the bandwidth on it to keep costs low.

    Download it from a third party site to get better speeds, should take around 2 hours max on a decent broadband connection.

    I got it yesterday with their downloader had constant 3.8MB/s download speed sure its not on your end?

    Yes I also found that this DL is rediculously long for a F2P game that I was assuming would be pretty small in DL size.  I'll stick it out because I want to see this game since it looks better than most F2P.  But in the end, I'm sure I'll come to the conclusion that I always do which is F2P just isn't worth the time to play.

    I downloaded this game way back when beta started off of filefront, it only took ~20 minutes.  I love filefront, they seem to have the best download speeds for me.  It's nice getting the full potential of my 18mbps line :)
