Yes, sadly it is easier to obtain every item in the game than it is to reach lvl 99. IMO this should be the other way around.

Currently unobtainable is not the same as rare.

I am talking about currently in-game obtainable items, not about relics of the past you can get for ridiculous prices from trading with other players.

Try to hate botter and ghost player and love the game, I undestand who the game is more fun like that.

You can only call a person a botter when they are guilty of botting. Anything else is a insult.

So what you are saying is that everyone should just sit in town and sing together? Not going to happen reid. Some people play the game to play the game. Some come to talk and socialize.

The game requires you to stack and follow people around. Which means you stack and follow people around. That is the game, if you do not like it then dont hate the people that accept it.

You know the truth, I know truth, everybody know who bot and how, dont need to play like this, the game and the graveyard is not fun to play since who all follow 1 personn and look the game every 5minutes to know if a Gm is here.

I same saw 10player follow 1! it is fun? No, and if you meant by 'hate the game' the devellopers team, so you are on the wrong way. PLay together but not on this way too

Nvm, I do a off topic.

um i have to disagree with you when it comes to stacking people and following people. that is not the point of the game. lol it depends what your goals are in the game, items, leveling, or just socializing. leveling you can do on your own, items you can get by doing quests and working hard for your items (which nobody does) and for socializing well its a big chat room world. point is its a rpg game and just like any other game theres goals to acheive.


and about everyone singing together in town, it can happen dark water ive seen it before. :mrgreen:

I have to say, I agree with Mr. A there - I've never really done the whole stack and follow thing, or used 4144's bot-like features to level. I know, I'm not at lvl 99, but that's not the point of the game AFAIK, anymore than reaching lvl 99 is the point of any Final Fantasy game, etc. I kind of prefer the distance fighting, with archers or mages anyways :)

To be clear that is not saying reaching 99 is pointless - definitely not. Just that leveling isn't the sole purpose of the game, or I'd have probably quit ages ago :P.

For anyone who's ever played as a warrior in the graveyard, you'll find that the best exp comes from stacking, your also more likely to stay alive in a stack. So it makes sense when in a group having one character leading (preferably a tanked warrior/mage), and other lower level characters following.

You don't need any special clients to do this, follow has been in the official mana client nightly builds for a while now.

So coming from a lvl 40ish and a lvl 50ish, that spend 90% of there time in town, stack fight is botting.

I never said singing was not the point or even happens, I said it would be impossible for everyone to want to do it.

By stacking you are unstoppable. Since the developers will not place a spawn point in the gy and since it is a long walk back, safe play become important. You do not want to spend 50% of your time walking around, you have to fight as safely as possible. Even in candor, you stack to save your self.

It is how the game works. It is how you play the game efficiently. If you choose not to do it, then dont, but dont get mad at the people that decide to do it. Is the game not the players.
