Blade and Soul "Lets Play"

17 posts in this topic

Hello everyone!

Kelbie here again! Just of note, I started a youtube page! I am uploading a literal TON of videos (Yes pixels can have weight)

I am starting out with a brief overview of character creation for each race and gender. After those are uploaded I will be adding a full lets play, where I play through all the game!

Of note, I am taking votes of what class to play through as, if you have a suggestion, post it below! The most replied class gets the lets play!

(If only 2 people respond the above rules may change)

Best of luck to you and see you in Blade and soul!

Regards,

Kelbie!

Play Force Master. I am not interested in customization because that is a given. I want to know the in and out's of classes starting with the one I want to main when the Beta finally comes out.

A very logical point. Truth be told, the only reason I was uploading the character videos, was because I am new to youtube...ing. I am a streamer at heart, so this is all new. Think of it as a "stress test."

Also, Force master was my number one choice too. But I was afraid it would be tooboring to watch.

The main question is how experienced and deep you are into the game. People dont care for "firebal does X damage and has Y cast time" people want the class definig tidbits. If you get someone in a combo what does the most damage/ what gives you the most control.

And if you know little tweaks in the game like say if you move back right as you cast a fireball you interupt the spell cycle and cause it to cast .7 sooner giving you a small but helpful bit of dps.

Stuff like this and make sure to shave a steady stream of info running and try not to linger on a subject unless its need to know

Soul has a great example. Parry is a main Blademaster skill and if you were to make a LP about the class should clearly explain what he CAN can CAN'T Parry and what are the effects.

Will do, thanks for the inputs. I did this quite a lot in my old KTera stream. So I will do what research I can.

Video guides for ALL the Qing Gong quests as well as small clips showing when, how and where you can use them. General class abilities, either personal or having another person show it while you film it. Lets Plays are also fine, though it'll be very unsatisfying for whoever does not like said class. Even with votes you could have 51% for FM and 49% for KFM, and in reality it would still be half the ppl who wanted to see each. Your choice though.

Regards, Hisano.

second for parry and lets expand that request to all the defensive skills, including evasion.

some specific queries:

Are there attacks that cannot be parried? if so what are they?

Are there attacks that cannot be countered (king fu)? if so, are they the same as for parry?

Destroyer shield, how does it work and what is it's capacity? (absorption? mitigation?)

Evasion skills, do they make the player completely invulnerable for the animation (like Tera's defensive roll), or does it just move you from point A to point B really fast?

Thanks for all the input. I think I will do a standard lets play. With additional videos on the other classes. So the best of both worlds. The only class that I have even a modicum of skill with is summoner, being as that is all I have extensively played. So at first, hard facts will be here and there. I will do what research I can to bring you the best product possible, but just know any information I state is subject to change. So don't take it as law.

Of note, if anybody that is currently in K Blade and Soul, and would like to give me information that they feel is needed in the videos. Or if anyone has information that is not readily available, feel free to send me a message via this website. Or send it to [email protected] (Youtube e-mail, not private)

First video will go up today (Dec 3rd) or this evening.

Video is live, sorry it took so long.

This one is a bit more "funny" then expected. Hard facts and all that good stuff are on the way, but unfortunately the first 20 minutes of the game are a little on the massive amount of cut scene side.

DO WANT in the Force Master gameplay department. :P

truly truly i tell you, force master is boring to watch. pretty sure the Koreans figured that out early on, that is why you don't find many recent videos about FMs.

Yeah I did blade master for the lets play. Mostly due to it being pretty fun to watch. I actually main a summoner, it's amazing. I mean it is a bit of a cute overload from time to time. But I think they play pretty well.

FM is very boring to watch, that's why I did not want to make a large amount of videos showing that. They seem to be fun to play though.

My first video is up, feel free to watch and let me know what you think.

I couldn't care less—I still want to see some of what the class I'm interested in playing is capable of, so it's still going to be the suggestion I'm going to put in for what I want to watch. :P

Very well,

I will go against the advice of my 4th grade teacher and give into peer pressure.

I will swap from blade master to force master. But of course I will do it in my own style.

Enjoy the videos, they should be live tomorrow. Due to the patch and all that came out today. (Uploading takes a long time as well)

New video is up, featuring the force master. Video three should be uploaded a bit later.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vdd9NdOaCrk&feature=plcp

New videos are up.

Enjoy
