@Furious said in Augmenting and Affixing made me quit.:
My limited knowledge of the worst system I have ever seen in any game has made my gear worse than they were before.
The augmenting and affixing system is awful, and quite frankly I hate this entire game because of it. I have no desire to try and farm things to improve my gear, I didn't want to upgrade anything because of how stupidly complex and vague it is, and when I finally did try it I ended up downgrading myself instead. I'm not going to sit here for hours and try and figure this out step by step. This should not require hours of research and 30+ page long guides to try and get a basic understanding.
See you guys in NGS if they fix it. I refuse to play a game that has such an awful upgrading system.
I definitely see where you're coming from, true endgame affixes are way too complex. I won't bother with things like mana rev, or things that require transfer passes to accumulate.
I'm kinda guessing the bad UI and affixing are why this game took so long to come west.
You can check the wiki for SAFs and exclusively use those, you'll get a competent if not minmaxed amount of stats. SAFs are always 100%, but you need the source weapon to have enough slots(sux) AND at max level. I take like 30 mil to upslot to 8... so I just stop at 7..
Even just checking for safs can take an obscene amount of time. It's not fun..shame on Sega. Combined with the typical Japanese interface, but made worse by being console-ized... game's pretty miserable lol
TBH, to me, the worst thing about the game is actually the console-ized controls. I'm used to MMOs with full key customization and 4x12 rows of hotkeys. Palette switching is death.
