Hey Gratch, both RHCP and Korn are using Babymetal as a support act for parts of their tours this spring.  Figured you'd appreciate that bit of info.  

I've got a huge update of albums coming, just haven't had the time to put it all together yet.  Such awesomeness so far this year in metal.  

Stay tuned...

The way the game is setup actually forces you to focus more than you might be realizing.  Not sure how far you have played, but Tier 3 gets slow and Tier 4 is downright grind central.  If you get bored or disappointed in what you are playing, sure you can switch.  Now you have to do that same grind to get Tier 3 or 4 in that equipment.  Crafting is also a crazy grind. 

The grind might not really be a bad thing since the game wants an economy that works and you probably have to have the item destruction for crafting to work and you probably need crafting to be a huge grind or everyone would do it.  Not sure the progression to bigger better weapons needs the same grind though since you are still limited by funds to buy gear or crafting to make it. 

Have you bought your island, mount and started farming yet?  more grinds.

I think the intent is to have players "find their way" in the game and do what they want to do.  This can mean any number of things.  If you are in a big guild, things can be theoretically organized to have different players specialize and then others contribute as they can.  In a small guild you'll still likely have to pick and choose what to specialize in.  It boils down to focusing on what kind of gameplay you like.  If you enjoy gathering and crafting, yes there will be a ton of gathering and crafting to do to advance to higher tiers.  But hopefully you're doing that because you like it.  If you just want to kill stuff, you can focus on just killing mobs and then use silver to buy equipment upgrades.  PvE in a group is much more efficient, btw, so if you were only soloing that might change your impression a bit.  We grouped up last night for like half an hour and I got from Tier 3 to 4 in healing.  I thought it was going to take me weeks but with the group it just flew by and it was a ton of fun.  So part of it is the learning process.  If you recall early SB it seemed like everything was a major grind, but we eventually figured out more optimal ways to do things.  Not that I anticipate "afk leveling groups" but I do believe as we experiment and learn we're gonna get better.  That's part of the fun for me. 

I will say the game definitely has an "old school" vibe, and you can see influences from Shadowbane, Guild Wars, Star Wars Galaxies and probably Ultima Online.  There's little hand holding and no traditional questing so you have to make some significant choices.  That said, it still feels fresh to me and honestly it's the most fun I've had in an MMORPG in a really long time.  I'm also really looking forward to being able to play this game on an iPad (maybe even on the phone?); for me that could be a game changer.

There is no "Death Penalty" so go ahead and try them. If you die you reload back next to the guy ready to do the trial over again. Trust me, I know this. slywink

The only real gate to the hunting ground trials is that for some you need a specific weapon type that you may not have bought yet.

If you get frustrated go do something else upgrade your skills, get some more health, some better weapon mods, whatever.

The first one is while off-roading on the rocks (Canadian Shield) in Lac Du Bonnet, MB.
This was late Oct, early November. You can see the half-doors are on (I have uppers as well that just pull off)

The last two pics are more recent (you can see the new bumpers, winch etc).

It's 35deg (F) out right now, so I still have the full doors and hard top on.

There's a really awful segment towards the beginning of path C that has you walk through the entire map without any skills available (including running or jumping) as a virus slowly takes over your body.  You can see it here.  I've tried this section half a dozen times now, and get killed by the virus every single time.  I simply can't figure out how to beat the timer, even after watching a walkthrough video (those guys at the 2:15 mark knock me down into the pit every time, and it's impossible to get back up without running out of time).

It's utterly infuriating to the point where I've set the game aside entirely for now.  Will decide later if I actually want to go back to it.

That doesn't sound like the "first" one.  I know I found one early on that I was able to do.  I want to say it was Level 10.

Training Grounds are interesting because while it's about skill and planning, it's also a little about luck.  You jump in, see if you can pull off the requirement, then rinse and repeat until you do.  Sometimes it takes you minutes to pull it off, and you're wondering if it's even possible to finish in a blazing sun winning time, and then on the next run, it takes twenty seconds.

Consequently, you could certainly give it a shot at a lower than recommended level, cause you never know what'll happen.  And you might at clear the first tier, which still gets you XP.  OTOH, there should be plenty of lower level side quests to do to beef up your stats first, if you want.

The back half of playthrough B is significantly different, and fills in a ton of the backstory around the machines and how the world came to be as it is.  Very cool how they aligned some of the sequences from 2B's story.  Definitely glad I slogged through the first few hours to get there.

I may or may not have made ample use of the auto-combat feature during this second playthrough.   ninja

Good luck with route C! All I'm saying is that you'll play as another character slywink
