Absolver School: Way of the Point


#42

Same here. Finally found one of the NPC teachers and joined the School of Stagger Style which feels like a breath of fresh air & is fun as heck. Bummed it took me so long to find a style that I actually really enjoyed. I really like the Mines cause it no longer has the weird server things going on with areas where sometimes there is no AI or just getting harassed by high level player characters.

I don’t know if they changed the menus but I had no idea you could repair equipment. I can’t seem to remember how to change my move set though. I want to play this more cause it finally feels like the exact thing I had wanted.

I’m very much considering a jump back into Absolver too. It was great before but it seems they’ve somehow made it even better


#44

Ah, gotcha. Well, I’d be happy to take the initiative to get this rolling, though I have a feeling I may be one of the lower level players here. Maybe you, or @Jonny_Anonymous, or @Moom is above level 34? I’m also fighting Kahlt Method, which works for me now but I’m eager to try other styles.


#45

I’d recommend it, especially if we get this school off the ground.

Stagger Style does look extremely fun. Is it very complicated to play, or is that just the animations tricking me? I’ve been reading up a bit about the Faejin Style and it’s apparently difficult to play without a bit of experience. Love the idea of their being a sort of “master” style.

As far as changing your move set, it’s all in the meditation menu. Go to your “combat deck” selection, hit “practice”, and then from there you can choose to edit the deck itself. Not really intuitive, is it? Once you’re in there, though, it’s all pretty straightforward.

I found it to be very easy to play. The quick dodge is really nice because you automatically do an attack right after dodging left or right which can be a great way to get cheep shots in during a fight. If you are interested the AI teacher can be found by the colosseum. I don’t have the words to really describe how to get there cause navigating in the game is terrible but it’s def worth looking into.


#48

If you want to take the initiative then go for it! Its been a wile since I’ve touched it so I feel like I would to relearn a bunch of stuff anyway.


#49

I think the easiest way to direct someone to the Stagger Style school is that it’s behind a door right next to the save altar in the Colosseum area where you fight Kuretz, the boastful boss with the fur collar and the mind-controlled minions.

Sidenote: that door only opens once you’ve located and beaten Jinn Mesca, who pops up in the Tower of Adal area - usually either on the little bridge if you’re coming from the harbour area, or before you get into the constructed area if you’re coming from the giant birdhouse!

I hope that helps! I played a chunk of this game at launch and I dipped back in because a PvE expansion sounds extremely like my kind of thing, and I’ve had to do most of it solo thus far - I’d be on board with joining a little Waypoint school if one ends up being made!

I’ve been playing on and off on PC since the expansion came out and I’m really enjoying the new PvE stuff.

I’m half way through learning Khalt style so i’d like to finish that up before I join. I am guessing that there is no cross play between PS4 and PC. What are most of y’all playing it on?


#51

I’m on PS4 myself, and you’re right about lack of crossplay being a problem.

In any case, I was gung-ho about setting up a school until I found out I’m not experienced enough to do so. I’m working on fixing that soon, but don’t see why there shouldn’t be schools for all available platforms if we’ve got interested players.

Might be worth asking around in the Waypoint discord fighting game channel.
