It dramatically alters the intended starter experience for newcomers, and yes there are still some out there. The bb glitch was patched at an opportune time as there will likely be a new wave of people jumping in to discover the game as the Dks2 hype train picks up.
The notion that there are folks who grind the game at low lvls to invade is real, but an exceedingly small portion. The large majority are twinked out bb toons, and adding to this distention is the arms race to keep up with a rookie host summoning helpers who are equally twinked out. The entire first portion of the game, up to the first bell is a long tutorial of sorts, and individuals have been cheated out of it by both the invaders and helpers.
Any rookie to this game enters the online world and is like an ant walking through the battlefield of gods. It forces them to either play offline which is a partial experience, or endure being the cargo in an escort mission.
Very well written.
I would give it a +, but I already ran out.
I seriosuly need more of those things.
Back to topic.
I've had, and plan on having once again, a low level character with high level gear.
However, I used only low level gear, all on +5 (Burg, Parish, Lower Burg), or +10/Raw (Depths, Blighttown) and not a bit more, spells included, if any at all.
I also had an elemental weapon as a backup.
I would, under no circumstance, even hosts, or mine death use it, unless against a twink. I prefered a Fire Shotel. It takes care of most twinks in two attacks.
That way I think I keep hosts enjoyment of the game and I can protect him from those douches at the same time.
