When I saw the announcement, I couldn't believe it but at the same time...I could. The past 6 months have been pretty awful. People have always said this game sucks, its going downhill etc. but this past 6 months was the first time I really saw it myself. Game guard and the GMs apparent lack of ability to fix glitches killed whatever chance this game had to survive any longer.
I'm not ashamed to say I am very sad, I even cried a little bit when I first read it. This game has gotten me through some hard times and was a sorta escape for me. I've met a lot of really great people and had a lot of good times and I'm really going to miss logging on.
This entry isn't going to be anything fancy.
When I first discovered Trickster, there was no english version or even any information of an english version that I could find all I had was a picture of the cat character.
I gave up on it and basically forgot about it until some time later I saw a banner I think on another site about this games open beta or whatever. I was so excited! I was like THIS IS THAT CAT GAME!! I didn't play MMOs but I thought I might give it a shot because of how damn adorable it looked. I was set to go on a trip with my family the first week it was coming out, but as soon as I came back I started to play and I made my cat.
First I made a HV cat Rydia<3 because I had read that what was "best" and since I was a noob what the hell did I know? I made it to about Ghost Blue(for level 20s back then) before I decided Galder throw sucked and I wanted to go AP. This is when *Rydia* was born and would remain my main character.
I want to talk about my Flamberge a little bit now, sure right now its a 7k AP Crimson sword but once upon a time my flamberge was this.
(lmao 0 stars for real.....)
I remember when I got it, a guildmate Jeony gave it to me for free and I had promised to give them a better dragon blade if I found one...well I never did. At first I thought this sword was ugly as hell but it really grew on me. :< For a while, I switched over to the duckling hammer as my main weapon skin but...I'm glad I switched back this past year. This sword reminds me of the good old days. Even if some of those good old days were filled with rage over Marx breaking it 4849 times trying to get to level 10. q_q
Ok but moving on....
For years I basically played *Rydia* most of the time, I did all my digging, bossing, grinding everything was on this cat.
One of the earliest memories with my cat were at the Tut boss room, people drilling for Craft Berets and waiting for the bosses to spawn...it was always pretty packed. Then when the Tuts spawned it was basically chaos, I would be a jerk and throw my galder throw when I saw the red bar was almost gone. ]: Well I got a lot of seals that way.
I have a lot of good memories digging with my cat, most of the money I made back then was from digging...after the patch I would be on every 2 weeks or so digging and double(channel hopping) digging Adamanties, Ori-Harkon, Phantom School Quest items, Custom and Craft equipments. I remember on my quest for a 3 slot Shishak digging at Count Blood...then digging for Armets and Mitras at the Queen boss room. I remember one night I found both a 3 slot Armet and a 3 slot Mitra, it was like my biggest achievement haha. And I wore that ugly ass Armet...these were the days before fusion.
Leveling up to 200
Snow 3 was wow, that was such a fantastic map. Afk spots, concentrated monster spawn for every class...this is a map I spent a lot of time on.
Leveling up to 300
Done on various maps, Tap 1, Tap 4, Ice 3, Ice 4....Ice 4 was sorta under rated I think that was my favorite map to grind on back then.
Leveling up to 400?
Coming soon. This game has never really been about leveling up for me so I took the road to 400 at my own snails pace....but now it's time to fucking run I guess. Now or never. Final Character Shots.Rydia!
I always felt like foxes were underrated and only used as diggers/compounders but back in the day Stone Strike + Shruiken throw was a pretty cool way to grind. I was first inspired to make a fox from seeing the foxes grinding at Bugbears looong ago. For a long time it was just my cat and my fox so she is a pretty important character for me, before second job cats were boring and weak as fuck let me tell you. I have a lot of good memories playing on her.
These days with her guardian, she is one of my strongest characters and probably one of the ones I put the least effort into...I mean fuck her pet is from like 2008. Foxes are strong. Rydiaa
My second sheep but my first serious sheep, she started out as Wind/Water/Dark and has since changed to Fire/Electric/Dark. I wish I had gone soul master on her but oh well, as my first real sheep experience it was pretty amazing for me to see how much easier the game was with some AOE....it was like damn what the hell have I been missing? SECOND ACCOUNTiRydia
iRydia was my first character on a second account...something I never wanted to do because of all the myshop I had on my first account it just felt like such a waste. I was hopelessly waiting for more character slots that never came. ]: I made her because Divas looked sorta fun but...it wasn't really. But damn I made her cute and that's what really matters right? Rydiaaa/Glindaa
Renamed Glindaa to match with my sheep Elpbahaa from Wicked, my first Soul Master and...well not much to say but I enjoyed playing her and I was working on getting her to 275 for a new staff. Wind + Water was my first element so it was nice to go back to that. MrRydia
MrRydia I consider to be my second main, he basically renewed my love for this game and with him for the first time I actually felt strong haha. Buffalos are so god damn overpowered but I really had a lot of fun with him, making him cute, confusing people into thinking I was a guy, chi + berserking everything. Good times. ): THIRD ACCOUNTElphabaa
Elphabaa named for Elphaba from the musical Wicked was mostly just...I wanted to dress a sheep up like Elphaba. I had entertained the thought of power leveling for level up boxes but I'm lazy and it never happened. She's cute. Snickerdooodle
Snickerdooodle was level 90ish for a long time, I had planned to sort of keep her as a low level character just for fun but when fast track came I decided to screw it and level her up for Chaos Tower and to be Swamp Mine PQ afker to farm those sweet feathers. I didn't really get to use her as much as I would have liked.Rumbleroar
Rumbleroar named for a character in the parody Harry Potter musical. I kept saying I was going to make a lion probably for like...2 years. So I finally made him! I'm not 100% happy with his look, 3rd job lion fashion was pretty ass and I was always hoping we would get more....but yeah. Regardless, I had a lot of fun with him and shooting things.FOURTH ACCOUNTJavert
Named after my favorite musical character, Javert was basically made to be an AFKer for Swamp Mine PQ to help people/farm feathers with Snickerdooodle. I never really had an interest in playing a Raccoon mostly I just wanted to dress him up. Sansaa
My newest character, name for Sansaa from the Game of Thrones series...I didn't get to do much with her and was in the process of getting a Legendary Guardian. I was about half way through card IDing so...now I guess her egg is just going to be with her until the end.
WinterIsComing...I just wanted to take the name. No plans to make a dragon.
I've already talked about this game so much in this journal, so I'm not really sure what is left to say. This is getting long.
Since I have stopped updating the only major change has been Harkon Protection, Vicksy was bugging and bugging me to come and finally I gave in and went and liked it so much I have basically been going since the summer. It's been one of the things keeping me positive about this game, I met a lot of really nice people and it was fun to work as a team in something. The upcoming Harkon update was something I was really looking forward to so it's just another blow that I won't ever be able to try it out.
My first time getting the Harkon Protection title, it meant I got the most "points" killing monsters and killing Chronos.
I wish I had taken more screen shots, but I just haven't been taking many at all lately. :/ I'll try to take some more before the end.
I'm gonna butcher these names but whatever you know who you are.
Thank you Vicksy, CaramelCustard, Idleness, Wind, EvDry...what was your name you buffalo ;o;, Loy, Panz, Melina, NinjaSheep, Type69, Deeta, StarryKitsune and everyone else I met at Harkon, it was blast.
People who have been keeping me going, Zaylia, Dussty, Flareen, Protoshot, Borricua, Ritisha basically my whole guild I'm really gonna miss logging on every day and seeing you all. ):
Even though you've basically quit, I want to <3 you guys too Gaen, Perrin, Legend, MagicHobo, Towman, MinaQ, Ark, AuntJemima, BossBait, LiquidAlucard, Hawnee, Ein, LordHart, Ken I'm probably forgetting a million people.
Thank you people who ordered from my Sprite shop, I really had a lot of fun making the sprites for you I'm going to miss that too. I hope you will keep the sprites as a memento to this game. ):Sprtie Gallery
GM_Raven, thanks for hooking me up with a Guild Emblem and keeping me updated on the guild stuff...
Thank you Trickster artists for making such a fucking adorable game. I want to go through and just Screen Shot all my favorite parts of all the maps, there are so many small adorable details in this game I love...maybe I will do that later.
So finally if you ever wanted a glance at my items, here are all my fucking items. Probably 98% of them. Some stuff is probably hiding on a mule somewhere or I messed up a screenshot but I'm not going to take the time to look for everything. I'm really unorganized its a wonder I ever got anything done. I'm sad I won't be able to continue my quest to collect fuses...Storage 1Storage 2UseEquip 1Equip 2Stray PetsEtc.BanksMyshop 1Myshop 2
I'm probably forgetting stuff but...whatever. I'm sad and this sucks. The end for now. I will update again when I get 400 and probably post random screen shots + mycamp.
