the Tower was awsome in TSW, its is far more easy now than in TSW
first change was in the assault of the tower, you do not need to kill the tank before fighting the tank comander.
Guess most ppl gave up cus they did not get the drones to explode at the right spot
Also the tower is different, we have combat floors, sabotage floors and invetigation floors.
You have tons of easter eggs, yo can see the arch from egypt in the tower for instance.
The fluff from the Management notes and Computer entrys make it worth reading all the stuff.
The Tower is not about combat and getting to the top most haste. Ist about connecting loose ends and Show you how evil or not Orochi might be.
Yes I can understand it is taxing, I played the tower first day it was out to finish it and it took 8H for me, it can be done faster but I took breaks and read the most entertaining entrys form notes and PC
from my point you Need to play the Assault Mission 2 times to get Archivement and to get side
also the way to penthouse cus of the Pacifist Archivo. Thats all rest you do once for each toon and you cant blame Funcome if you play so many toons
If we get ever to the moon I would love to see a Mirror Tower on the moon.
To Aegis, a easy way to bring more challenge to TSW. But it set you back to bloody nooob if you enter kaidan.
downing Mobs with shields up took ages and I died often cus Regeneration was to fast.
This I am a SUPERHERO that can lay waste to entire armys with my left small toe is BORING.
If you want to see stuff like that watch MARVEL movies
I do like the idea to be a tactical nuke of Gaia but for god sake right now SWL is a no brainer and no fun at all.
Cus we dont die anymore, we dont have mobs on the normal map that we need a special build for.
What happened back in TSW, I needed to play the tank Mission to get Aegis 5 times to get all controlers, yes I did it before the nerv. Till than with one Controller I always feeled danger in kaidan, cus I could not kill a 750hp mob cus he had Aegis. THAT WAS AWSOME, threat, danger, thrill, fun all cus of AEGIS.
All ppl had the same issue, tons of pow in arms but no Chance to land a hit cus of Aegis, you needed to adapt to the change and adapted to the combat flow you needed to consider if fighting a Aegis map.
was it 5 sec Switch time at the beginning? or was it 3 sec? not sure anymore.
Well if you cant do stuff for 3 sec cus you change your aegis, better have a plan rdy how to survive that 3 sec.
Today most would use the FAN Gadget Switch aegis and keep fighting. But in TSW not all bulds had a nice Impair AOE so I do understand why alot ppl did just die from aegis Switch cus they Tailored their toon to FIRST STRIKE NUKE ALL, the worked well on all maps expect kaidan cus of Aegis and BAM I Need to adapt or perish, not all could do it and gave up frustrated cus the normal way to play mmorpg, DEAL THE HELL DMG AS MUCH AS FAST AS U CAN, did not work if you did not had the right AEGIS.
Somehow AEGIS brought all to the same lvl in Kaidan, a fresh start. Grind 5 quest with 3 days CD if no GM or Patron and then u can start playing Kaidan. 10.4 ppl died in kaidan cus they cold not manage Aegis Combat.
And those where fun, mob with 2 shields or even 3 woot that was something I needed to Focus on, gosh if you fight 2 Mobs with different Aegis types, so much fun not to die. Down shield of mob one to get leech heal back, Switch shield while moving to get less damage, impair if needed. Down second shield try to damage the first mob a bit before he gets shields back…that was entertaining.
I miss Aegis alot, far more better then 2 Greens one blue 2 blue one purple 2 purple one yellow 2 yellow one red…
Sad it is gone
