    Lay off the OP. She is not responsible for any of this, nor does she have to relay problems directly to the devs on a foreign Mabinogi website.

    I created an account and attempted to navigate the site myself so I could email or message someone about stuff.

    Welcome to the US and Alexina. Guns are often popular too.

    Welcome to our side of the world. I always assumed that playing American Mabi was like using Internet Explorer or having an AOL email compared to Korea.

    We here also love sword melee...a lot.

    i hate all melee

    but thats just me... everyone else loves it and hates magic

    I am mage myself. I do not have the strength to compete with humans or giants, but lightning rod is pretty nifty.

    Hi, welcome to the NA forums. Recently, I've been seeing humans using Bash and Final Hit with Dual Swords, Dual Guns, Ninja, and mages using Fireball and Lightning Rod. Puppets for crisis mainly. Giants use Lance and Guard Cylinder or Two Handed Sword and Guard Cylinder. I've seen Elves using Magic and Archery.

    My favorites are Dual Wield, Two-Handed Swords, Hammer, and Shield, and Lightning Magic.
    Lately I've been playing Archery on a new character and it's been fun but slow since Arrow Revolver is harder to get and Weaving takes forever lol.

    Everyone and their dog has a pair of CRK swords and/or a ego fire wand. Meta transcends language.

    I can quite safely say not everyone on Alexina is using one of those, although everyone in your social-circle might well be. I have nothing against the META people speak of, except when they begin making broad - often inaccurate - strokes about how everyone is doing something. Furthermore, most of the dual CRK-sword owners I know are generally too afraid to use them unless there's a 100%-repair event going on.

    Also, not all players are human either.

    The comment is facetious. I mean, dogs cannot use CRKs either. Everyone being a hyperbole for "a great deal of people".

    Welcome Debyoni to Mabinogi NA,
    Although i generally do not comment to forums, i do enjoy welcoming new people. also i am not sure about the weapon preference..i generally switch often depending on what i am doing.

    P.S: my character resides in Server Ruairi but i do have a character in Alexina as well, so stop by anytime~.

    In terms with offensive and utility, I use ninja, fighter (Shyllien Knuckles with Lightning Rod), and Final Hit (2 Focused Rainbow Beam Swords).
    In terms with defensive, I use Shield of Trust (Recovering Touch), Windmill, and Party Healing (Mainly Girgashiy).

    Hi! Welcome to NA Mabinogi. Glad to have you here. ^ ^

    For me, I mainly use CRK for final hit and bash, and the guns for human. While my elf is a mage, I mainly use firebolt, intermediate magic, and adv magic. I use blaze if there's puppeteer around. As far as I know popular choice for battle, I'm not even sure lol. I've seen people use mostly everything.

    That was a derailing comment earlier. This thread is a self introduction, not a thread to ask for someone to voice your grievances. Jesus.

    Mabinogi is my first MMORPG game, and its still the only MMO I ever play.

    It was hellish being an elf at the start, but I would never start over from the beginning. I'm happy leading the life I've had in the world of Mabi so far.

    My playstyle is different since I invested AP very poorly at the beginning as a beginner player.

    I almost always main archery or long range in games, unless there's a different reason to use close combat. I'm most proficient with archery and I plan to keep mastering it outside of game skills in the Mabi game.

    I find dual swords to be tricky but only because I lack close combat experience. For some weird reason when I play as my human alt, my performance in close combat shoots up, but as an elf, I can never fight like a real warrior like my human can, I think there's quite a bit of difference in damage. My low level human alt can easily finish off enemies faster and efficiently than my elf can.

    That being said, I like being an elf so I have to accept that there are only things an elf can do, so I either go solo or be a supporter. Being able to work one or two party members who are also elf/archers is a treat for me, but I seldom find those chances, and its not easy to find people who know how to 'fight' well individually and as a team.

    After mastering a handful of skills and one or two talents, I plan to 'retire' from training/fighting and just focus on getting my current lv up, I've no interest in grinding total level whatsoever.

    No one from KR has visit us and when someone did they knew how bad the game was from the very beginning. We got to do something before mabinogi becomes like Pangya and shuts-down for NA.

    Except the fact nothing last forever. We could keep the game last longer, but it'll eventually die out just like the rest of the mmo games out there.

    Woah, someone mentioned Pangya. Didn't think anyone from there would play this game, to be honest.

    Well I'm going a little off topic here, but the Pangya servers shut down because the Korean servers did, and we weren't getting very many updates. I saw it coming a long time ago, probably towards the beginning of 2016. When the Korean servers shut down, you know that the other servers won't stand much of a chance. Sad as it is, at least it can still live on in Japan, Thailand and private servers.

    I don't think Mabi will go the same route as Pangya. This game still has a lot of players, even if they're mostly in one server, and updates and events happen pretty regularly. This game has its fair share of problems, but it's nothing like the problems Pangya had.

    Now back to the main topic! Sorry for the derail.

    The ends do not justify the means in this case, especially when there are so many other options. I suppose you could ask a Korean to translate and voice your grievances, although supposedly Nexon has essentially a translator for these things.
