GREEN! Oh man, it's good to see one of the "original" B-town FCers.
Welcome back. In terms of what has changed... A lot, I think.
Can someone update me?
A lot of equipment weight has changed in patch 1.09. Mainly armour from what I recall. The DWGR only works at 25%< now. Hornet Ring nerfed. Most Greatswords have been slightly slowed. The DLC (which wasn't around 2 years ago, right?) Has made Magic much more viable in PVP as well.
saw many white rings, what are there?
They've been around the whole time technically, they just weren't working properly until now. They are "Miracle Resonence Markers" and you can find info here under "Online" Wiki Spells/Miracles
Magic strong magic fire in 5 rows next to each... Almost instant dead
Yeah, you kind of have to get used to dodging Dark Magic. I still need practice.
Any new areas or thinks i need to know?
Sounds like you're getting most of the DLC to me. That's everything new, really. PVP areas that have become more popular over the last year IMO: Moonlight Butterfly forest, and before fog gate at Ceaseless Discharge.
Worthy fast weapons?
Out of the new DLC weapons, the Gold Tracer has become really popular. Worth checking it out since I know you love your Dex weapons.
where we mostly fight? and what SL?
SL100 and SL55 have become extremely popular. But some people still fight SL120 and SL125. I myself have pretty much switched entirely to SL100.
Last FC I've done was Moonlight Butterfly Forest, Depths, and Painted World... Not much B-Town anymore. :(
I hope this helps, and I look forward to dueling you again.
