Well I'm just really upset that there's no castles! Ever since even the RUMOR of celestia came out I made up castle ideas just waiting to see if they were used. I rode my manta ray mount (loved it!) there and found then were no castles! I was so upset I landed up not doing any quests. I might do some though when they go on live realm though. Also was I the only one a little disappointed with the new schools? (P.S. if these ever turn into main schools they have to be a lot more then just buffs!) Thanks for reading!

I like the fact the combat is slightly harder. However I don't like how hard it is to get stuff for quests with only 1 at a time.

:( The mana recharge balls seem to be missing from the common areas.
:) Another change from the world before. Although tougher, it doesn't seem as heavy a feel as DS.

We see all the new crafting items and spells...is there a crafting quest-line missing to gain another level of crafting???

Personally, I dislike the new jumping (like when you hit "space" on your keyboard), but I love the new mounts. And no you are not the only one that dislikes the new schools, however i love the idea of polymorphs.

1) I love how the enemies seem to stay within their school of magic. So far not one weakness was used on me. I also like the critical hit and block. This give a better chance of 'one hitting' and opponent.

2) I don't like how critical block and critical attack bonuses are not added to the grandmaster items we got in the past. This makes those items inferior and finding anything on par with them as in mana, health, accuracy, and power pip boost very difficult.

My favorite thing would have to be how smart the npc enemies are they setup traps and blade each other it makes it much more challenging. I also like the new wands starting off with three power pips is AWESOME.


My least favorite thing would have to be the new school trainers. They are cubes which is really odd.

FAVORITE THING: New schools

LEAST FAVORITE THING: The fact that I'm gonna have to buy back my Training Points in the live realm to get spells from the new schools

I love Celestia so far, but it is a little too hard, I know some people flew by Celestia, but that was because they were excited and had crowns to buy henchmen and potions. It is way too hard to solo. And the prices, over 12000 for a starfish pet? And I don't like that the street monsters (or bosses) can use level 48 spells and stuns or start out wih six pips. It also is too hard to level up. I have played on test for the past two or three days and i'm only a level 52. Celestia would be perfect if it was a little easier. Now for the things i like about it, I love the new pets and mounts( they cost a little too much though)
And i love the new spells and schools. I also like how celestia looks. Please make Celestia easier.

My favorite thing is that you have to grroup up.

My least favorite thing is if you spent all of your other training points oyu will only get 3 in CL and that you dont get a potion bottle.

Celestia is beautiful.

It is very difficult. I wasn't expecting to solo on my Life. But, I was expecting to hold my own. My Life died 4-5 times. My son died an equal amount of times. I am really disappointed. Not being able to live through two street battles was disheartening. :( I have loved all the challenges in the game. My Life went through DS before all the changes. It was a blast. This was very different. I guess I just don;t understand the system.

Sorry for posting twice.

An update from my original post.

I changed my deck and now am able to survive street battles. The new world requires a new battle strategy. Silly me not thinking of that sooner. That is a definite like. I am really enjoying figuring out new ways of doing things. Have not faced a boss yet.

*edit here*

I really like the enemies are casting spells in their school. I fought Storm guys and they used Triton and Storm Lord me. That made me laugh. Fire guys used Helephant etc.

I also am enjoying the sense of community I get. People are helping each other and really enjoying it.

My dislike is there are no mana wisps anywhere I have been in Celestia. I vacation in DS to get mana. I hope they get added in.

I feel that I do not like the whole concept of The floating Land. I mean, a world that's entirely about legions and being sunken has surviving people above water? That, plus the fact that it takes forever to get to the Lunarium, but I know that's kinda more like a glitch

Going off the update notes, here are my thoughts:

I really like being able to share reagents and pet snacks in my shared bank.

I'm not really interested in any of the new schools. Sun sounds like treasure cards on demand, but, i've never needed them or used them. With moon, I level up and buy gear to make my wizards what I want them to be to be strong enough to stand on their on so I do not see where being able to completely change my deck will be helpfull. If I use any of the new schools, it will be star because it will be nice to have a boost in accuracy that lasts more than one round.

I'd rather have more interaction with my secondary teacher/s but that's for a different thread.

This is kind of disappointing too: "Players can no longer preview the contents of eggs in the Dye Shop."

My favorite thing is that you have to grroup up.

I hope not. I vert highly value my ability stand strong by myself.

a) A lot of new game play elements to enjoy - I'm enjoying enchantments and auras, and polymorph is fun (but requires a little bit of learning to get best effect out of it).

b) For someone playing the game straight through the last world, Dragonspyre, was a let-down. Yes, you saved the spiral, but you also spent several weeks (or months) in a world of ruins, and fire. And, ultimately, your actions as a player did nothing to change that. It's a bit depressing, actually.

Then comes Celestia: also in ruins, also in the midst of calamity. Whereas I re-visit Wizard City, Marleybone, Grizzleheim, or Moo Shu just to take in the majesty of it all. I can see Celestia has some beautiful artwork, but it seems there's rarely good vantage points from which to enjoy it. Some humor, or light heartedness in the initial quests would have been a welcome relief also.

I must limit my complaint - there may be more I haven't yet seen in the test realm. However, these are initial reactions. My other initial reaction was being overwhelmed: this is a whole new storyline and it seemed to hit with the speed of a bullet train.
