    Default arcane weapons at 16?

    Installed the game again yesterday and decided to pick up a lvl 15 set but was to poor for a para but thought I would do fine untill seeing that there are now lvl 16 arcane weapons...

    I am worried that arcane weapons completely gonna kill twinking around lvl 16 for anyone that isn't extremely rich, tank was already one of the only classes which was quite good if you couldn't afford a para but now you need 10 mill (?) to buy a weapon that makes any other weapons obsolete...

    Can't really say that I like the decision to make arcane weapons useable at lower lvls.

    yo! bro,although i agree twink arcane weapons should have been introduced for all twink lvls but still its great work from sts devs !from long time twinks have demanded gear proggression with the introduction of arcane weapons which gives twinks hope of further more gear progresssion as twink got paid attention with arc weapons, rest the issue is of price of new arcane t weapons ofc its new stuff in the market and pretty hard to loot as well as drop rate is very low ofc with passage of time prices will drop but overall its great for twinks ,i hope soon we will have better gear then current ice set which has been around since 2014 winter event ,correct me if am wrong XD

    I don't really mind the weapons only being for lvl 16+, I mostly find the price just insane, all the previous weapons which were improvements were event weapons which caused their price to stay relatively low which kept twinking accesible for the not to rich people, even the best legendary pets were event pets that didn't really cost a lot. Para gems were the only thing that separated the rich from the not so rich and already gave quite a big advantage.

    if the twink needed gear progression doesnt mean they need arcane weapons...we twinks just need some item range to choose from...there are only 2-3 weapon and armour and ring for all twink levels...it would have been better if they released high level legendary like magma sets, etc to low level which gave comparable stats with the current weapons so twinks can have more options...with the arcane weapons twinks are not getting any weapon progression their options are more limited...there wil not be any weapon variability now...everyone will only go after one weapon...twinks need more options not just one universal gear for all...before arcanes people could choose between ss, galen, dev maul, etc...every weapon their own advantage but now only one...more limited in weapons...not even limited...there's just one option

    the price isn't gonna go down, the thing adds over 100 dmg compared to a galen on lvl 17 and is even better than lvl 26 weapons for tanks, thats a ton of levels it has to cover, it would take months for the price to go down even by a bit.

    dropping 1m every day? you must be looking at a different auction than I am and "go farm one" most of the people I've seen drop an arcane chest ran for what? 5 minutes, I already ran for several hours so gl with farming one when it's full rng.

    okay, so?

    they weren't released back then and they should've never gotten released, twinking was the only place were you could actually beat people when you were on a budget.

    because there are new players that tries arcane legends everyday

    i understand you in a way that sticking with your old equips for the longest time is always the best because it's practical and cost efficient.

    but not all twinks can afford that new weap and if they do you can still count them with your fingers so if you see one and your hesitant to fight em then get out and join another map...


    nobody is holding a gun in your head to fight a twink with a new arc weap.
    So instead of new players being able to pick up a Galen or Storm sword for a couple 100k they should pick up a weapon that costs 8 mill, not to mention that if sts wanted gear to progress why did they then make a new weapon, the tarlok pendant is atm still the best pendant and that thing comes from the 2014 winter event, the weapons were already far more diverse than the pendants.

    And if you actually played around this bracket (or simply entered paradise pier a couple of times) you would've noticed that there aren't a few people with arcane weapons, I've already seen 3 rogues and 5 tanks with the new weapons and I barely even log on anymore.

    +there's nothing wrong with gear progressing but sts could've easily done it like they did in the past by making better gear in the upcoming halloween event.

    They might aswell kill people in one hit, over 100 damage compared to a galen is a gg.

    And twinks are pvp characters, so why does sts have to ruin twink lvls so that endgamers have smthn to be active for...

    How's this any different from the para gears that cost multiple millions? I don't quite understand. Forgive me if I don't.

    So... maybe not ruined.

    Because we play L16 on stealth characters both with and without the arcanes.

    1 Para is enough on a set and that costs far less than an arcane weapon.

    And for justg I would love seeing a dev kill this guy with 0/1 para's and no arcane weapon.

    "I agree with Lvst, you can still do very well in pvp at level 16 without an arcane weapon.

    And when you quote someone it would be handy quoting someone who knows smthn about pvp, anyone that owns an arcane weapon will 100% have a Nekro to stun from a distance (and also will be impossible to be stopped from closing in)+ shadow pierce is very common in rogue builds at 16 so closing in on an enemy to stun him should not be hard at all.

    in short what im trying to stay if you have skills...

    you can kill that player with an arcane weapon

    P.S i found a player with a better stats than his and he is only level 10
    a lvl 10 can impossibly have over 300 damage unless he has a ton of buffs+damage elixir or is a dev

    and with para vs no para it was easy to kill people that were money>skill but you can't outdamage a weapon that gives such a huge stat buff...
