The English and Chinese isn't matching up in that meme though.
The Chinese part says, I treat you like pearls and treasure, you treat me like water weeds.
Then, not long after G3, in 2009, I met my significant other. It didn't take long for us to connect, and within just a couple months we had met face to face. Then we lived together. 9 years later, and we've just celebrated our 8th anniversary. I don't play the game much anymore. I'm almost 12k total with most skills r1. Casually working on gransmastering everything. I mostly just play for the events/crossovers and to spend time with the s/o.
Edit: Miraculously, I DID manage to run into the friend I was looking for... almost 3 years later. Playing as a giant with a name similar but not the same as the other MMO. At that point it didn't matter though, lol. Miraculously, he was on Tarlach, and on the channel I frequented!
My life is drastically different now; I have far less free time, and I've lost my drive to keep striving for more power, considering any equipment/enchants worth using are unaffordable for non-whales now, and the last few skills I have left to work on are the worst skills to train EVER, but I can't quit because I've sunk too much time and effort into the game to walk away. -_-
I bet all those Isekai manga authors copied rebirth system
Disgae already did rebirth way back b4 it was cool.
Well, at the time, a lot of MMOs coming out didn’t have much in the way of customization, let alone even allow for players to use different styles of combat without needing an all new char. So even the meager selection of hair and colors back then was still quite rare.
Visually it also had a real charm, looking like an early Dreamcast game, but able to run on most anything. I knew someone in Mari who had a PC running Win’98 who still managed to
A lot of games also had timers on potions, forcing you to wait while you traded blows with an ugly excuse of a wolf. Mabi was one of the few to not only do away with that(meaning you -could- survive a mortal series of blows with some luck and timing), but its action-focused style meant your hit mattered, and so did the enemy’s, so everything was kept very fast-paced and streamlined— reflected even to the minimalist UI approach, which kept a lot of elements from cluttering the screen.
The players and fashion, not to mention devCAT’s committal to really letting someone live their fantasy life and express themselves, really kept me coming back, and still do.
I've then searched up Mabinogi and then realised that it was availiable to download in Australia. I was really happy and then decided to download it, knowing that the main reason that I play Mabinogi is related to Jam Sessions.
The combat to me, is really cool lol! You know the 10th Anniversary BGM right? This one just brings the feelings of when I heard of this game and stuff- That's why I play. Lol. TARLACH MARI SERVER-
My goal in the earlier years of play was just to make my character as strong as possible, hoping to surpass my friends/guildies, but then reforges and other OP combat related stuff were implemented into the game. That started to veer me more towards fashionogi (especially when the dressing room released) since I would rather put my gold towards something more guaranteed. The dressing room got me addicted to collecting for it and that's pretty much what I've been doing for the past few years. I rarely do any combat these days due to moving to another state and have been stuck on a wifi connection that has a bad delay lag. So, I mainly log on for the social aspect, afk/non-combat type of events, and to keep collecting for my dressing room.
I can't believe I've been playing this game for almost 10 years. I've never played any other game in my entire life for such a length of time.
And no two characters are identical, you can customize almost everything - armour, weapons, fashion, skills, etc.
I'm not sure when I started playing to be honest, but it was back on the old EU server.
Mabinogi has a very special place in my heart because it's so different. From the aesthetics to the storylines to the different skill sets, mabinogi sets itself apart from many MMOs. Even with its problems (oh God, its problems), I keep coming back because a lot of other games just don't measure up. Idk I hope that all made some kind of sense lol
Keep the stories/reasons coming!
Because.. because many things, but i enjoy Mabinogi is not based on fixed classes like every single game around today, instead is skill based you can mix the way you feel when you want and if you want and i love it ...but this is not enough... i play because i can progress doing funny nice things, having fun and playing with friends or alone... instead of spend 90hs a week harvesting like a slave for experience points killing 20 rats per quest ... in the other hand.. is where i find my friends and is good just listening their voices every day, or reading their crazy daily stories along guildchat... so... is not only because one single reason, there're many ... but guess is about free fun gaming and good friendship into a nice place/world/universe we picked to live in.
Specifically though, the way combat and skills are handled is really nice, even though the game is from 2003-2004 it still has a charm to it graphically, and content can be really fun to run. I was big on trading in Team Fortress 2 so the market was a nice touch too; and I haven't done it in a while, but composing is fun to do, I actually love making music for people to play or listen to.
I've met a lot of cool people that I talk to frequently, including my girlfriend (yesterday marked a year that we've been together), and I've introduced the game to other people too. I'm generally here to stay, this game's too sentimental to me to quit for good. So people I run into in Dunbarton will still have to listen to my really bad jokes, but hey sometimes they're good jokes, I promise!
