Guardians of Ember reviews and comments

Early Access Review Hello dear Fellow Players, Pubs and future Players, I played the Game very extensively at The Beginning of the EA, and after Release of Act3 still looked back a little bit. Then from time to time after the Folgeupdates(Act4+5). First And foremost, I really like the Game principle. Hack & Slay and MMO Items in one? Can only be good-you might think. Unfortunately, there is a bit of a lack of Implementation. The Main Problem for me was the EXP distribution in the Group itself. I specialize specifically in the Refueling and Pulling of Monsters through high% block chance and the resulting Self-heal. In itself, that sounds great, 63%, block Chance With a Heal of 11%maxLife per Block. However, this resulted in my Fellow Players concentrating very much on Damage. This in Turn has meant that I often did not have the time to pass the Monsters once, and thus did not receive the "Combokill" Bonus, and if you take that up to ~ 30Monsters per Pull, a lot of EXP will be lost for me. I had to put myself there more often after the Game Sessions with my Fellow players and play Another 1/2 hours more and make up for this EXP difference so that we continue to be on the go in the same Content. That may be vll. 1-2x okay, but if you are allowed to repeat that after every Game session of 4 Hours, the Fun of the game falls very by the Wayside, just as a "Full Tank" where there is a lack of Damage spikes in the Soloplay. What also worries me a lot about this is the very strong Advantage of the Loot Pet. My Fellow Players were Lucky enough to get a Loot Pet from the 20Orbs you get when you bought it, but I didn't. The Problem with this is that they can just keep running, while I have to click each loott individually. I have no Problem with that in itself, but the Game makes it more difficult for me to root, which you have to click directly on the Item itself in order to get it, instead of on the name of the Item what is on the Floor. This is particularly serious in Rings and Amulets. The temporal Advantage is just enormous when you have a loot pet, unlike Players who don't have one. On the Combat System I also have to complain that it can be played very gundally, the Skills make little impression that They are breaking the Monsters or the like. For a Hack & Slay, you can play relatively slowly, more like an MMO. Standing Around long and spamming buttons is unfortunately the Order of the day. If I Personally would have liked it to be different. A quick Hit & Run would give the Combat System a lot of fresh Air and significantly increase the Desire for the long Grind! But enough of the Criticism! Let us Move on to the positive Aspects. I find the Gear optimization very successful. You can specialise very strongly in one Thing. For example, I have specialized very much in Blocking and Self-healing Through Blocking and keeping the Aggro. Works very well, even in Soloplay, but it just takes "a little" longer than I would like to play in a Group, as I therefore lack damage. The Possibility of Fishing, thereby preying for Keys for Dungeon Boxes, also has something positive for me. So you can stand by a River, either with your Fellow Players, talk while Fishing and your Gold Bag doing something Good! And the small Competition that comes from it also has something fine in itself. (WER HAT THE GREAT FISCH GEFANGEN:D) I also find it appropriate to expand your Inventory 1x every Day. I can't think of any other Aspects I want to address at the Moment. So I would finish the Review with the buy recommendation for the First time. Buy Recommendation? Can't I give a resounding Yes or No. For diehard hack ' & Slayer I wouldn't recommend it at the present Time, it's just too slow as it feels Hack & Slay 'ig. As a diehard MMO 'ler, however, I would recommend it, grade for People who want to see something other than the typical MMO Games, and they also get an Impression in the Hack & Slay Genre. €20is an acceptable Price from my Point of view! Hopefully the Pubs and Debes take on the User Reviews and change some Things! MFG Maxmauer
