Ah the beta days, back when things were actually difficult and soloing was for the hardcore.
I equate the same sort of experience with the current state of Maple actually. In Maple as of now you get a lot more stats than usual, thus making things extremely easy to 1~3 hit kill by yourself.
You'll hit level 165 before you actually feel the need to communicate and team up with anyone after having passed 85% of the entire game content due to your overpowered state. Why Lv165? Because the game throws a massive curve ball by having the enemy HP jump from 400,000 to 26,000,000 and damage from 2000 to 8000+ making it feel much like Myth, except that you're wearing Myth gear at early levels which makes everything else obsolete.
Part of me longs for the old days in both games when getting a tiny damage boost on an item was like Christmas and teamwork was essential to get past what would ordinarily be a long and dangerous path ahead of you. You NEEDED to find people to play with, and you NEEDED to work towards your gear and levels instead of having powerful gear outright given to you.
Speaking of that did you see my auction for my Rare Elegant Lunia Ring
? It has a whole 2~2 damage, extremely powerful!
