It it turns out, S4 simply does not agree with me having an early nightrest after ruining the day for some unfortunate DM players. Not only did the official Korean S4 site post a new ‘GM Diary’ entry regarding the upcoming season -Blade-, the guys at the official English community were equally fast with catching wind of this and kindly sharing this discovery.
As I offer my last drops of blood, sweat, tears
and saliva for you guys, following up yesterday’s blog entry we have the new upgrading system, new costumes, and two
new pets, the latter of which bearing a certain resemblance to a certain anime series. More after the break! (Click on ‘Continue Reading ->‘)
The word ‘upgrade’ has a definition that makes it sound like a good thing. It makes things stronger, cooler, better and all that jizz. Makes you stand out from the others. Feels awesome, right? Feel that adrenaline burn! That’s what I’m talkin’ about! YEEAAHH!!
^ This is the reaction I am supposed to have as a happy internet guy, playing games and wanting to be the very best, preferably like no one ever was, sharing in a certain someone’s ambition. So why, just why do I get the feeling that in this particular case an upgrade isn’t a good thing, except for alapenta’s wallet?
From what the screenshot shows, there seem to be two options. One is obviously for upgrading, making an item +0~+10something and giving it more attack/defense (for example) with every successfull upgrade. This leaves us with the second option, perhaps a fusion/combining option. However, the small box at the bottom of the second screenshots makes me lean towards an imbuing system for some reason.
If you have played MMOs from PWI or any other respected company you know what I mean here — add ‘stones’ or ‘gems’ with special bonus stats, that will be added onto the item. On the other hand, Google Translate picked up something about ‘chips’. Maybe we can finally add our eSper chips on all pieces of our equipment? Or, are we going to receive new, AP eSper chips with further bonuses for this? Who knows. All I know is that extra movement speed can be more game breaking than anything else.
Some people have brains in their head, they are smart. Some people have brains in their pants, they are good at sex, or rather would be if their partner would let them get that much practise, which is unusual since that comes along with the risk of being called a hookah. However, people have brains in their wallet. These are sly, cunning but above all; greedy.
If there is one thing that I gained from both real life and Fumbi, it would be that I apparently am a Barbarian in the fasion world. In real life, a blue shirt, green pants and red socks would look interesting to say at the least and I would probably end up wearing, be it not for the fact I am greatly attracted to girls and thus my ladies’ man-self bringing me to a halt. What Fumbi provides me to wear isn’t exactly helping either — I’d post some of the examples but I signed this blog up as PG-13 friendly so my apologies.
While the sets themselves seem ‘meh’, interesting here is the fact the girl has the new Cytonik face, previously awarded in the infamous ’11 rigged coin Christmas event, and the fact both characters have their backpacks, although I cannot tell if that is part of the equipment (hopefully) or a seperate equipment slot alltogether.
The set gives me the feeling of some kind of tennis equipment .. either way, chances are they will be G Capsule only, unless they add it to the Fumbi so you can waste ~200k on a permanent piece with a wonderful +0~+2. YEAAAAHHH
