KurtzPel: Bringer of Chaos is back with another gameplay teaser and this time it showcases the bow-wielding Wind Dancer class in combat with a nameless Magician boss. As is with other PvE footages shown of KurtzPel, only two players are seen battling the enemy. The AoE Arrow Rain and fast shooting attacks of this archer class is reminiscent of the archer class in Dragon Nest.

Neowiz, the developer and publisher of the recently launched Steam version of Bless Online is dealing with a crazy turn of events and community uproar. Pitch forks are being raised as players make their way to the end-game content of the current build.
Lag issues and poor server and graphic optimizations are common concerns raised by those who have played the Early Access. On top of this, as players reach the current max level (level 45), they are quick to find out that much of the end-game content that defines Bless Online’s gameplay has yet to be implemented or are very incomplete. That includes the PvP Ranking system, arenas, battlegrounds, Skill Gem acquisition, Royal Quests, Honor Quests and the popular PvP map called Basel Canyon. Granted, Neowiz did state that some of these features will be added in future updates in an old FAQ.

Wild West Online has stayed at a Mostly Negative rating level on Steam since the game launched on May 10, 2018.

As is typical for an MMORPG launch, Bless Online has started a set of Level Up Events to reward players for progressing their characters. For every 10 levels, players will receive Support Boxes that contain Collecting Bags, Baguettes, Taming Scrolls, Peace Declarations, Lumena (premium currency) and other consumables.
