First Impressions: Blade & Soul


After waiting impatiently since it was announced in 2009, Blade & Soul was finally released in North America and European Countries.

Last weekend my friend Derek and I binge played the game, only stopping on occasion for food and sleep. Now that my character is level 23, I feel like I’ve had enough of a taste of Blade & Soul’s mechanics to write about my first impressions. I tend to schedule articles for publishing on Fridays, but I think it’s best to release this while my thoughts are still fresh.

Prepare for a fresh batch of unadulterated honesty.

Update: Blade & Soul Prelaunch Weekend


I know I just recently posted that I wouldn’t buy the founders pack for Blade & Soul.

Well… I kinda did. I bought the Master’s Pack.

Money is no issue here – it’s about spending the weekend playing with my friends. It’s been difficult to spend quality time with them lately – starting my own business and being part of countless projects and initiatives can do that to a person. When I get home from work, I tend to gravitate towards the couch – most of my job involves socializing and while I may be good at it, I’m still an introvert-by-nature and I need the recovery time. So I can work efficiently. It’s a vicious cycle.

I may or may not have spent two and a half hours creating this character.

I try not to be flip-floppy about my opinions, but when I saw the opportunity to make up for lost time I had to take it. One particular friend of mine has been waiting for the game for as long as I have. So we’ll be playing together!

We’ll be ingame on the Old Man Cho server starting tomorrow, January 15th at 10 AM PST. My ingame name is Edge, so feel free to send a PM!
