Hello! I have been a long time player since the early days. Many hours poured into the game, just over 2700 spent on Exiled Lands. I’ll keep this short and to the point after playing on Siptah for about a week and half now (about 60 hours).
-Cool new mobs and monsters
-Maelstrom and surges are a good challenge. I’ve seen people complaining about how they are not too solo friendly, but I have to disagree. You just need to be prepared and patient.
-Maelstrom siege elders are a really nice idea but I feel players need some protection against them like the purge. The purge would only attack if the player or clan members were online. As it is right now, players can essentially be offline wiped by NPCs. Not too fun.
-The center of the map is lacking in interesting activities.
-Lacking in points of interest like villages, towns, etc.
-The map overall is a bit small, especially in comparison to Exiled Lands. I have heard that there will be new land mass development still. That is good news!
Anyway, keep up the good work! My wife, friends and I have been enjoying the experience so far. Siptah being very different from Exiled Lands we find refreshing.
