The Age of Merlin thoughts

Earlier in the week, Mabinogi has recieved an update geared towards mages. The Age of merlin is upon and thou shall be smited by thy fury of the elements!

I feel rather indifferent about this patch, though now I have more reason to work on magic. I always found magic as more of a utility skill, much for set ups and self mending. But now, magic has become much more than that with the recent updates. So far Merlin has proved well for mages, now that bolts can hit on par, if not higher than Intermediate Magic in terms of DPS (Damage per second). That’s a good thing considering how low bolts can do.

Other than that, Merlin is also one of five Ace (or Hero…make up your mind >-<!) talents. If you are a mage, you will greatly benefit from it. If you are starting, then you will have much more fun than I did…


Free Pet! Get yours…at your own risk. [Updated]

It appears Nexon has goofed and put a pet in the shop that is for 0 NX. What makes it more inviting is the “Free” tag. Even worse matters you can obtain up to 5, or even exceed that number. Why would anyone want more than 1 is beyond me. Personally, I feel one of a single pet is good enough and any duplicates shall be punished (unless you can color change them)!

If you do “buy” one (since you go through the same process as if you were to buy a pet), I would advise doing it at your own risk…seriously.

Update: It appears Nexon is now aware and a pending announcement is now expected. You can still obtain the bear however…but threads related to the bear are now either being delete or placed as “hidden…” whatever that means.

Update 2: Turns out it was intended…just no so early! Anyone with multiples are forced to delete the extras and will be limited to 1 per account. So be prepare…Christmas comes early this year (lolwut…?)

Update 3: It’s official! Everyone, both new and old players, can enjoy a piece of Holiday Cheer! From now until the 31st of December, 2013, the bear will be available for all! (Limit one per customer, restrictions apply. See your local Nexon for more details…okay I’ll stop) Get yours today!
