Mabinogi had been around for quite a while now, and their had been changes a few times but as they add new things to the game old features were overlooked as well as new features being underwhelming missing out on potential ideas which could of been added for better experience. I had been with Mabinogi as it's player and consumer for about 9 years now since Romeo and Juliet.
I can't say that I am "Knowledgeable" about what path Mabinogi should take and follow but what I can say I had "Experience" being with Mabinogi for awhile that I am seeing it taking the path which raises questions. Although enough about that I want to see improvements on Talents and Transformations to catch up to the times that I am sure plenty of players would like.
Talents which need buffs and looked at:
and some skills in other different talents which is seen "too powerful" like:
There are talents which are outdated and not caught up to the times leaving them to be forgotten or too weak to see much of use. This in the end left us with about 85% of total skills in the game to be worthless and only for stat fodders because of meta along with a set of mind about "Kill before they kill you". We have the most powerful skills in the game but made you wonder how come other talents don't share the same glory? Balance reason? No, because the game lack balance anyways. Talent Bias? Maybe we are seeing more encouragement of Physical melee damage in the game than Range and magic.
I had no idea what goes through the mind of the developers when they design Mabinogi or what they plan to turn it into but when they want to try something new...at least make old content adapt to change or else it shows horrible age telling the world of negligence.
There are "transformations" which also need to see improvements as well:
Awakening of Light/ Morrighan and Neamhain
But I must not forget our newest addition of transformation..."Nascent Divinity" surprised? This is a new Transformation which I had thought to be the most epic and awesome experience only to realize sooner than I thought of how pointless, underwhelming, and Lackluster Nascent divinity is. Since you can only use it on a set duration depending on rank you would think this transformation would speak usefulness and worth the time of duration? No, its way too weak and not impactful at all, it may look powerful but its one of the weakest Transformations in the game right behind Paladin, Dark Knight, Falcon, Beast and Awakening of Light still being the top Transformation in the game.
Nascent Divinity had so much potential to design which would of at least beat Awakening of light in usefulness till it's inevitable duration running out, it could of used the sword of the gods "Brionac" as a melee weapon with godly swordsmanship of grace fitting for it's otherworldly aura, choosing the path of the sword to being unique only to Nascent Divinity. It could of been more impactful, it could of been more fun instead of the brain dead and boring snapping of fingers which is POOR gameplay design for such a otherworldly being.
Instead we only have ONE nuke which can only be used ONCE per transformation duration due to it's long cooldown, as well as effecting properties of Crusader skills unique only to Nascent Divinity, Alas the crusader skills STILL share the same cooldown so even if you used Shield of trust for protection, you can't use Judgement Blade right after due to sharing cooldown...its clunky, and most of the time speak to your own doom due to endgame mobs hitting HARD as you gain Advance stander effect unable to use your basic skills to shove the swarming group for you can only attack one enemy or use Judgement blade but its cooldown is too long.
As the newest addition to the list of transformations, its one of the WORST transformations in the game by design and only used for one quick Nuke and your done, no need to keep using it for the rest of the duration because you can do a LOT better without transformations anyways.
You would think Transformations was suppose to give ya an EDGE over your foe but it instead holds you back from doing better than you do without it.
Mabinogi had this spirit that keeps me from looking the other way and only looking at Mabinogi, something about it just keeps making me come back despite other new game titles appearing, I came back because Mabinogi is Iconic, its something that no game ever had for the longest time, "To be what ever you want in this fantasy life and with friends". This pretty much made me into such an old time player.
Seeing the Pet update is a good addition to improving pets and hope to see revisits of older content to be improved.
Mabinogi needs to see change and "Proper" improvements of quality of life changes...
