Bolzen is on a distinguished road
Old vet with some doubts, please help

i quit playing conquer around the time when cp's went live, don't remember exactly how long ago, but i decided to give it another try. But i do have some doubts:

1- Can you still get super gems from minning? And has the drop rate changed?

2- has the overall general drop rate changed? DB's met's Elite/Super?

3- How's the balance between classes? Did the ninja and monk classes changed anything drastically?

1- Mining rate has been lowered signifigantly because mines are over run with bots.

2- Hunting now is completely pointless.

3- Fire taos are OP hitting 3-5k average non crit with tornado (even higher if well geared) Trojans can kill pretty much a whole screen now with one herc.

Monks can kick you in the air until you die or another player helps, and ninjas will 1 shot you with twofold if you don't have good gear.

CO is pretty much whoever lands the first hit wins now, and unless you wanna spend $10,000 to be able to compete at all then don't waste your time.

The following calculations are considering that one is paying 7 CP for 10 composition points.

+1 to +2: 14CP
+2 to +3: 56 CP
+3 to +4: 168 CP
+4 to +5: 504 CP
+5 to +6: 1512 CP
+6 to +7: 4536 CP
+7 to +8: 13608 CP
+8 to +9: 40824 CP
+9 to +10: 2500 CP
+10 to +11: 5000 CP
+11 to +12: 9000 CP
--------------------
77722 CP total for one +12 item.

This is roughly 2.8 bulks. Let's just say 3 for convenience. $1020 USD.

You have 11 items to get to +12 (10 if you're using 2-handers), so that's $11220 USD for all your items...not including DSouls or nobility. So if you were starting on a new server and hoping to make full +12, you'd definitely need more than $10K USD. Better invest in lottery ticket IRL!

On servers where there are already some +12s floating around, however, it's a lot cheaper to get them. On Dream, for example, most +12s are only around or slightly above one bulk pack, AND usually come pre-permed with DSouls and -n%. In this case, it's entirely possible to get full +12 for under $10K USD.

Now, you don't need full +12 if you want to be able to compete, but you should expect to fork out several hundreds at the very least (and make a Fire Tao).

Welcome back

To be honest with you, your better off not coming back. Not until TQ actually proves themelves, and not **** us up again.
