    I will start by saying i looked at this game a very long time ago,it was on my radar but every single game that comes out of korea usually ends up a cash shop shallow game so i am always skeptical.As well that doesn't mean i won't play it,i played SRO for years but i never had to spend on the cash shop and that is why i played but times have changed,cash shops are even more forced now a days.
    http://bless-source.com/guide/gem-shop/
    This is an example of a cash shop no way in hell i would support.There is also gambling boxes which likely means you spend a lot to get an item you likely won't get otherwise.There is also several currency that are also tied into the cash shop,just a real lame total design towards the cash shop.


    All sorts of in the field cash shop items related to death/ressurrection,protection from pvp,  mounts etc etc.

    Never forget 3 mile Island and never trust a government official or company spokesman.

    The models, the animations, these were never an issue.

    re-launch Bless fixed the technical issues - which was key - however what they need to focus on now is - content, content and content.

    Re-launch can be really great if they can pull off filling out the massive world with meaningful content.

    I have my fingers crossed.

    I am guessing by 'overworked' you mean reworked, guessing it was a translation issue? It will be interesting to see how much of the game has been 'fixed' those things listed are probably a good start.

    Over on the rebuild server, Neowitz has remade the Mascu race. They are now a neutral race, where you can decide which faction to choose from later on.

    The Mascu can only be certain classes now as well. They can be a Guardian, Berserker, Mage, Paladin and Assassin.

    Lastly there is now an option to make a half-human/half mascu race. They too live with the mascu and share the same traits as them.

    Yea on the Rebuild (test) server Ranger and Mystic are not available yet. Neowitz still hasn't finished re-doing their combat yet. 

    As for the Races in Bless here are the playable races so far:



    Still so much work to do on the Rebuild.

    If you haven't herd much from the rebuild server, it's because Neowtiz has petty much abandoned it. I think the reason why they have done this is because the game is just dead in Korea. Nobody plays on the rebuild or the retail server anymore. 

    Bless is having some success in Japan. So Neowtiz is focusing there instead. Over the past few months, everything on the rebuild server has been moved over to the Japanese servers, and they have been updating, adding content,and optimization .  

    So from now on I'll post info from the Japanese server, as that is where Neowitz focus is.

    Dragnelus  a number of your jpegs look like shit. Like scramble video capture.  Did you check them before you posted them? Also the game graphically looks real nice.  Be interested in seeing some videos of game play.

    I'll wait for open beta to check this game out but i am not expecting miracles. Neowiz has a really poor (some low quality, and others P2W) catalog of games under their sleeve... at least the ones that came out in the west. I know that if i end up playing this game will be exclusively PvE to avoid any potential p2w elements korea might add anytime.

    Thanks for asking the tough questions. For those that are wondering this is what most of the world currently looks like when you explore past the quest hubs:

    The game has been in beta in some form or another since 2013.  I don't think that they plan any fundamental changes to the current game world, that would be a massive undertaking, and I don't see anything that would point to that in the roadmap.

    I can live with it, but it kind of kills the immersion when the whole world feels dead and barebone. Bless is certainly missing the often advertised "living and breathing world", which is a shame. It's also weird that the day and night cycle is shown in the Bless Steam trailer when it's clearly missing in the game.

    The huge barren wasteland outside of quest areas will be a primary reason why the western playerbase will take a massive dump on Bless.

    It would take a year to fill that in and considering how badly delayed and over-budget Bless is - this wont happen any time soon if ever (regardless of what devs say)

    Also oceans have nothing in them - no fish, no corals, no sunken ships or hidden treasures, lost ancient sunken ruins.... nothing like that, just a barren underwater wasteland.

    Bless sadly stands no chance in the west due to completely unfinished game world

    Over on the Japanese server, Neowitz has added the Epic events this week that used to be on the Korean Retail server, and the Russian server. Events are like Fates in FFXIV, or events in GW2.

    They were popular at first in Korea, and in Russia, but they had to be taken down, do to them not working very well. It was a lag fest nightmare doing these. 

    Now with the optimization fixes, and instancing them. Neowitz is hoping these can work on the Japanese servers. I figure Neowitz will want these on the Western server as well. 

    In Japan these are called Assaults. 

    Bosses

    There are currently two end game Assaults. Once spawns near the capital of the Union Faction, and the other spawns near the capital of the Heiron Faction. They rotate each week, so that both factions have a chance at the loot. 

    Melakria



    Brocadia



    -During the Assult period, at 22 o'clock on weekdays, sundays, and holidays, at 23 o'clock on  Saturday. 'Melakria' or 'Brocadia' will appear.

    -When a raid boss appears, an instance of up to 400 players can enter. You can click on a pillar of light that emerges near the boss and you can enter the raid field by touching it. Only the first 400 players touching this light can enter the instance. 
    Neowtiz is hoping that by instancing the field, you will get better performance. 

    -If you die and release your soul, your corpse will still be in the instance. So you will have to get back into the instance to retrieve your corpse. 

    -The time frame is roughly 40 minutes to kill the boss. If the timer goes to zero the boss simply disappears and the instanced area will be released resulting in every player being dropped to the normal field.

    Contribution and how to earn an reward for these Assaults

    -Contribution is calculated based on your actions, such as attack on the raid boss or healing/recovery to allies side campaign character.

    -The contribution has a rank of 1 to 4, and the higher the rank, the better the reward you get.

    - If your faction defeats the boss you can win even greater rewards. 

    - Rewards are mailed to you via the mail inbox, they will last 3 days in your inbox, so you better get your rewards. 

    - The two highest contributors to the assault will get a flying mount.

    Bless has a OWPVP ranking system similar to Aion. Both for individual players and guilds. 

    The main currency for killing players is honour points. The more players you kill the more honour points you get. 

    For individual players

    You can get honour points from the following places :

    - Participation in the 100 vs 100 BG. Points awarded upon completion of the BG.

    - Participation from the 3 vs 3 Arena. Points awarded upon completion of the match.

    Participation in any other open-world PvP against players of the opposing faction.

    Once a week (On tuesdays) your Honour points are summarised and recounted (you can view them at any time in your Profile). Depending on the amount of points you posses at the time of recount you receive a Rank and your Rating points are reduced by 30%.

    Ranks and Rating points for Hieron and Union factions:

    Top 50 in Honour points

    In order to be considered for top 50 in Honour points, you must submit an application for participation to an Examinator NPC. To be eligible to submit an application in the first place however, you must have been at least Rank 13 at the time of your last recount (not your current rank, but your last rank).

    Along the regular weekly recount of honour points every Tuesday, there is another recount among all participants competing for top 50. First 50 players that have the highest amount of Rating points in their individual faction become top 50. Note, that there is a separate top 50 for Hieron and another, separate top 50 for Union factions, they are not shared.

    This is how the top 50 recount occurs: let's say you registered for participation on Dec. 26, a Monday, at the NPC. If you make it to top 50, you will not receive your reward on Dec. 27th (the Tuesday), but rather on Jan. 3rd (the following Tuesday), because the recount accounts for points that you had at the moment of last recount that happened on Dec. 27th.

    Upon becoming top 50 you receive a unique rank (that is unlike the 1-14 ranks listed above), and a unique reward specific to your place in the top 50:

    For ranks 14-49 within the top 50 you receive:
    • Rank of Grandmaster (Hieron) or Corps Commander (Union).
    • Sunlight Medal of Honor x 34
    • Sunlight Steel of Honor x 2
    • Sunlight Ribbon of Honor x 2
    • Box of Luck with Unusual Runes x 19
    • Box of Luck with Rare Runes x 3
    For ranks 2-13 within the top 50 you will receive:
    • Rank of Marshal (Hieron) or Army Commander (Union).
    • Sunlight Medal of Honor x 68
    • Sunlight Steel of Honor x 3
    • Sunlight Ribbon of Honor x 3
    • Box of Luck with Unusual Runes x 19
    • Box of Luck with Rare Runes x 5
    • Unique flying mount for 7 days.
    For rank 1 within the top 50 you will receive:
    • Rank of Emperor (Hieron) or Commander in Chief (Union).
    • Sunlight Medal of Honor x 135
    • Sunlight Steel of Honor x 6
    • Sunlight Ribbon of Honor x 6
    • Box of Luck with Unusual Runes x 19
    • Box of Luck with Rare Runes x 10
    • Unique flying mount for 7 days.

    For Guilds

    The guild leader earns influence points every time a player in the guild earns Honour points.

    If your a PVE player in the guild and don't want to pvp you can earn dungeon points. The guild leader will get influence points from that as well.

    Lastly if a player doesn't want to do pvp or dungeons that player can get discovery points from exploring and crafting. The guild leader will get influence points as well. 

    In other words you need a really big and active guild if you want to participate in any guild events. 

    Using influence points

    - The guild leader can then use influence points to upgrade the guild, or get guild perks. 

    - The guild leader can pay to declare war on another guild. It's a bidding process and the highest bidder wins the right to declare war. 

    - The guild leader can bid on territories. The highest bidder wins the right to siege that territory. You can do this every 2 weeks. 

    Realm Points

    If your guild manages to take over a territory. The guild leader will get Realm points instead of influence points. The guild leader can then go to the realm shop and buy Legendary gear (The best pvp gear in the game) using realm points.

    ***In the Russian and Korean version only the Guild leader has access to this shop. So for other players in the guild, the guild leader has to give them the gear.
