Buster (Boostus) is back!

Post by Daimoth » Sun Feb 26, 2017 3:59 pm

He resides in the University, 2N from the entrance chamber. Please tell all of your friends. Now is the time for new players/characters to get back to work!

Edit: I'd post an image but nothing seems to render on this forum now.

And yet he's still broken!

Instead of talking to him now, just sit in the library and gather a couple hundred lib ranks, do all the exp spot quests and collect the v1006 compensation. Then talk to him and you'll find that he's much more helpful, especially to non-fighting characters who won't be feeling his boost on tags anyways because they won't be tagging.

Sad that he isn't a talking gorilla any longer, but very happy to see him back!

So... like... why not just automatically apply Buster to ALL new exiles up to the cap? Then no one has to think about it. :-)

Point taken.

From my perspective (as a relative n00b) it's kinda cool to have some kind of a quest/secret that you can discover by yourself when starting out. You cannot do much with a weak character. I reckon that if you just got it for free, nobody would care. However, there's a sense of achievement (importantly, early on) if you get some ind of a bonus. Also, it encourages community participation because it's something you can talk about doing.

Minor, but I reckon any little sense of achievement early on will go a long way.

My one thought here is that it's so easy to accidentally train yourself into a state you 100% do not want to be in that needing the counsel of an older exile before you get Boostus kinda makese sense.

Though, I believe the account portal is still down so it doesn't really matter, right?

But, I mean... who hasn't done that regardless? :lol:
