As expected, there’s a lot of debate and rage about the newly introduced FTG system. I’m taking a break now after a few hours of dungeon runs, and I gotta say I’m pretty taken by the FTG system.
It could be because I’m a) not a level 40, b) not a farmer, c) not a trader, but just a casual player who likes the story and the gameplay.
Would you believe that I have done no less than 5 dungeons, and my FTG consumption is 117?
If it were the old ABP system, I would be at 0 ABP and not enjoying any EXP boost at all. I was consuming only double-digit amounts of FTG. By my estimate, it would take me a whole day to exhaust all of my FTG. I’m not sure if it applies for solo though.
I cannot confirm, but it seems this small amount of FTG consumption thing may continue all the way to level 39, according to this Beginner’s Energy popup.
I feel bad for the level 40 players because Dragon Nest SEA really hasn’t treated them very well at times, but for those of us who are level 39 and below, this Hybrid FTG system is much better than the ABP system, especially with the increased 40% drop rate.
And I remember from a guide that I read, that for the other servers with FTG implemented, they have other things such as Dark Lair and the 300 & 500 goblins thing at Theme Park that they can do which gives EXP without consuming any FTG.
I am so pumped to try the new Dark Lair ‘Hatred Pirandello’ that’s was just recently introduced! I get to fight (and get pwned badly by) Geraint! <3 …Oops, I got sidetracked.
As for the level 40 players, it seems the Master and Apprentice system can help them not consume FTG? I’m not too sure about how that works exactly, but it sounds like they aren’t completely shafted.
Now I’m more psyched than before to get to level 40 and challenge Manticore Nest (your PRP cousin is no threat to me for a long time already, muahaha)!
