So I picked up BDO because I could relate to many of its advertised features: open world, sandbox, variety of classes, crafting.. you name it.
I've reached level 20 in a couple of days but I am struggling to get hooked. So much so that today I logged in, and logged out after 5 minutes of just looking around.
I really want to like this game because its the only *newest* AAA MMO, sandbox with an active community. My last MMO was Archeage and despite all its flaws I did enjoy the world and community.
The "grind" doesn't scare me at all I played SWG-Pre-CU and Vanguard so this is a joke of a grind. I'm killing creatures with two blows and levelling up fast.
But it's the world itself that i am not *feeling*. I feel like playing a single player game even though the game is packed. maybe joining a guild might help but I usually wait until higher levels for that so that I might learn a few things on my own.
Any advice on how I might find energy to go forth? I chose the "striker" class which reminded me of SWG TKA but maybe that was my mistake. The combos are all great and all but in 20 levels Ive accumulated like 20 combos half of which I do not know what is special about them the other half I cant even use before the creature is dead anyway..
Thanks. As I say I think I would like this game I just need some encouregement or advice from veteran players.
