I just wanted to leave a little sentiment before I leave the game.
I started Vindictus five years ago (Six? It’s been awhile) and my first character was Evie. I remember when Evie would still swing her staff. I didn’t know she could cast magic at the time until it was pointed out to me. I wasn't a very serious player at the beginning so I stopped playing for awhile. Fast forward two years later, I remember watching Staff and Scythe evie solos and I thought that these players were amazing. These led me to take the game much more seriously and so I rewatched the videos until I could almost replicate it myself.
Fast forward to early 2014, I saw Lynn’s release teaser and I thought that it was perfect for me. Finally when her release came (June 18th, 2014) I promised to myself that I would dedicate my time to main Lynn. I was mainly a solo player up to this point so I spent a lot of time perfecting raids at least until Season 2 content. Fortunately I was able to gain the bare minimum stats so I wouldn’t get kicked from Season 2 boats. Around the time Cromm was released I finally gained enough stats and began to solo Season 2 content. I felt proud that I was able to solo Season 2 as a Lynn (aside from Kraken and Bark).
I went on a hiatus for awhile, shortly after Regina was released. When I came back, (around the Lugh’s release) through pure luck I was able fully enchant my armor, and create my +15 Skeleton Glaive. I found that soloing had become rather boring so it was around this time I showed up in parties more often.
It was also around this time I was invited to my current guild, Ascendents, by this very great staff Evie, Aqua22. The guild was small at first so I thought it would be nice to join. A few weeks later Neamhain released. The first week was quite hectic since I had lost hours and hours of sleep just trying to clear the raid. But because of this raid I met many skilled players and now I considered some of those players as my friend. Ascendents began to grow much larger after Neamhain. Honestly because of Ascendents, I’ve much more fun ever than before.
I’ve accomplished most of my goals: soloing almost every raid, achieving Golden God, etc. My only regret is not being able to solo Neamhain due to a lack of stats, but in my eyes it's been done c: . So to leave this, I just want to thank everyone for all the fun I’ve had in this game.
I do something ridiculous like bathe at the hot springs in both Rocheste and Colhen for a minute. Bow to Flovian's mini shrine three times, then go to Malina's highest point (that lookout tower on the hill) and bow five times. Run around the campfire in Malina five times. Finally I go take the final bath in Colhen and drop the number of iced brandy according to what enhancement level I'm going for, then visit Ferghus. I also don't forget to record it as well, because Ferghus doesn't want to look bad on camera.
