Hey folks. I played the beta back in 2006. I have some questions.

Recommended Posts

Hey guys. I've gone under a lot of names before but my 2 mains I'll mention here.

First name: **Indeceseant** in NosUK. Played the beta in 2006 all the way to release of NosGlobal. Then played that with the same name until it shutdown.

Went back to UK. Played for another year. Then quit.

Came back 2 years later to UK as: **Cursewords**.

Played to 88 with Mage.

Then played to 50 with an Archer before I got bored and quit again.

Now I'm starting fresh again. From scratch. No drop trading items or anything. I'm going to play with my girlfriend. 2 Archers straight to the top as quickly as we can. Guess I can't quit this game for good yet, especially because after showing it to my girlfriend she wanted to jump on it immediately.

I doubt anyone from the first years of NostaleUK or NostaleGlobal is around in VGN. Most of the people I knew had kids or just quit to play newer games or just never logged in again.

Actually got the idea to play when I saw people uploading a pretty steady stream of Youtube videos for the game. Then remembered I had my own vids. Showed my gf and she was like "How fast you think we can roll through it?"

I was the owner of all of the English "Meet the 'x' Specialist" guides on Youtube until I deleted my Google account and removed all the videos with them. I could have saved them I guess but I figured now I'll actually make them again and do them even better. Inspired a lot of copycats though that did videos in their own language.

I'll be making English guide videos again on Youtube and trying to bring more English content to this game when I get a higher level with my girlfriend. We're going through the content now and having a blast.

The thing is, we started on NostaleUK via steam (on the US server). But then I met someone that said that this server exists.

In the official version I was really happy to see the 100% EXP buff which is freaking amazing. I always said that was the only thing this game was missing, it was a bit *too* much of a grind. Both of us got to level 35 in a day, it's great. Also love the minor quality of life improvements. Movable UI, faster passive health and mana regen and whilst sitting/resting. Also slightly more logical translations/dialogue (still pretty bad though).

So cool to see this game still going. Looks like it might be the best time ever to play. Still lots of players, hopefully farming spots aren't overcrowded. Can't wait to get Wildkeeper and go for LoD Runs again

_____________________________________________

 

Some questions though:

* What's the EXP rate exactly on VGN?

* How many players are online at any one time?

* What's the latest version of the game you guys have? How far behind the original servers are you guys?

* What about cash shop items? How do you get those in VGN Nostale?

* Could someone explain to me this (99+50) level system now? We never had this years ago.

* Also would like to know about this Martial Artist thing. How does that tie into the game?

* How are bots in VGN Nostale? I saw you guys are doing a lot to try and remove them but I know how hard it can be...

Thanks folks!

Hello~~! Welcome to VGN! Have a nice stay :)
I'll answer your questions right now:

* What's the EXP rate exactly on VGN? 20x exp rate. On Champion Level exp rate is the same, until you achieve c30 (this will be explained later).
I'd suggest you to do quests till ts55 (including this ts). You should have around 83lv. Then, level up on LoD till level 89-90 :) . After that, you must do act6 quest, which will take you to level 93. You can always ask people for a help in that quest - mobs are pretty hard at this point of the game.  Thanks to the leveling to level 93, you have an access to the better equipment, therefore you can start making some money by raiding (for example: Ibrahim, Volcano Raids).


NOTE: Remember to buy an equipment from Bash NPC (equipment seller one). He is situated in Nosville, at the right corner of the map. 

* How many players are online at any one time? A lot. I don't know the exact number but yeah, you can see a lot of people playing. Obviously a way more than on officials :)

* What's the latest version of the game you guys have? How far behind the original servers are you guys? We are pretty near to officials. We don't have some features (example: Martial Artist class) from officials since some of them are useless/needs to be changed. We also have some totally custom things, which exist only on this server (for example: Rainbow Battle Rework, Title System, Trophy System, custom pets)

* What about cash shop items? How do you get those in VGN Nostale? Some of them are bought in Bash NPC (he is situated in the right corner of the map). Some of them are bought from the NosMall, for IRL cash. Obviously, you can buy them from the player (Example of the things from NosMall: Scrolls, Magic Carpet, Amulets, Perfumes etc.)
We also have a Mystery Box system - In NosMall there are 3 Mystery Boxes with different legendary rewards. Those rewards changes weekly (for example you can find there: Onyx Wings, Elemental Wings, Fibi, Inferno, Costumes, other pets, other mounts etc. etc.)

* Could someone explain to me this (99+50) level system now? We never had this years ago.This is basically an additional level. It's named "champion level" - CLevel. At the level 88 you get an access to the special maps - act 6. You have plenty of maps to exp your Champion Level (you'll almost always find a spot for you!). Exping there gives you normal level also... and a lot of income in gold :D
Advantages of leveling your CLevel:
- Access to the new resistances
- Access to the new, op weapons and armors
- Access to the new raids (people won't take you for raids on a6 without a proper equipment)
- Access to the new acessories
- Access to the passive books - they increase your base statistic. Without them, the game is unplayable in PvP aspect.
Basically, CLv is must-have.

NOTE: When you achieve c30, your exp ratio on champion level will be x5.

* Also would like to know about this Martial Artist thing. How does that tie into the game? Currently at the VGN we don't have this class released - it hasn't been done fully on officials yet. It will be released when it's fully done (every SPs, equipment etc.)

* How are bots in VGN Nostale? I saw you guys are doing a lot to try and remove them but I know how hard it can be... Well, since the last patch, we got an encryption released. That means that bots actually don't exist/occur rarely.

Hope I've helped you a bit. If you have some more questions, you can ask them in this thread.
Best regards~~

Thanks so much for such an amazing answer. I thought I already got back to you and thanked you haha but I guess not.

I hit level 84 yesterday and it feels like the EXP rate has really slowed down all of a sudden. Up to 84 I was getting pretty much 50%-100% of a level through the TS reward EXP. Now I'm getting like 2-3% per TS. Does it slow down after lvl84?

Just wondering so I know what's going on between 84-88 for Act 6.

Last questions. Can I do act 6 even if I haven't done act 4 and 5 etc? Also how do I get to act 6?

Okey, each level u will need more exp to level up to ,when reached 88 u can access act 6 by Graham in nosville in the begining 

No need to pass act 1 to get to act 6 (aka leveling up by farming or lod until lv 88½ then act 6 and after all the quests before zenas raid , u will be lv 92~93

Basically Lv on Land of Death - the family exp area. Don't do the mainquest anymore - it's a waste of time.

LoD times guide:

NOTE: Current serv time is displayed at the right corner of the main page: https://nt.vendettagn.com

Overall LoD guide:

I'd suggest you to level up there till level 89-90, so you get lv93 from a6 quest for sure. Quest can be obtained without making the previous story line - you must enter on A6 map from Graham NPC (centre of NosVille) and you will automatically start the quest.

If you have any more questions, you can check the table of contents also - you may findd a fitting answer there:
