Yeah, BDO isn't at all what you're looking for dawg. 30-40 hours and out isn't really what BDO is at all. The story/lore is dogshit, so you aren't really going to even be able to get enjoyment that way. You'd be fucking lucky to even get full TET Tuvala in 30-40 hours, let alone PEN - especially if you know nothing about the game.I got BDO for free on console so it's no loss to uninstall it and get it on PC instead. FF14 on the other hand I bought the full edition so I'm definitely playing that on the PS5.
Not gonna lie, I mainly got BDO for all of the hot chix in the game.
Once EQ runs its course (which I think we're coming up on soon here since my TLP is reaching live) I'm gonna need a new MMO and it'll probably be one of these two. Though I'm also gonna give LOTRO a run just to see the content.
Will definitely go with a seasonal character for BDO and treat it like a regular game, 30-40 hours and out. Is Nova a seasonal? A Nova game sounds appealing, she hawt.
But wait...does seasonal mean that they rotate it? I.e. Nova is going away soon and we're getting a new seasonal character?
If you're insistent on playing, Nova is fine for grinding as long as you go Awakening. If you're looking for a good grinding class for female, you have a lot of options. Guardian, Lahn, Sorc, Witch, and Nova all grind pretty solidly. Succ Lahn is probably one of the top 3-4 grinders, in fact. If you want to PvP, Guardian, Witch, and Sorc are all viable Node War and Siege Classes, especially Witch. Nova and Lahn are both pretty far outside the meta for small-scale and large-scale PvP. Awakening Lahn has a few uses as a flex class in certain scenarios, but that's about it. Nova is just straight doodoo in PvP.
