    Jelly King has been seriously nerfed! If you keep them on fire, you're done in two minutes nowadays. I remember struggling to beat it unless you had a full four to take him down.

    Also, funny thing about the Auction House. Just from September until now, its gotten ridiculous... you can STRAIGHT UP BUY four star weapons ready to go! Insane.

    Playing this game for a year too Smile Here are mine two cents:

    1) Graveyards were insane. Everybody was just speedrunning them, with usually only 1-2 making to the elevator, barely alive
    2) CE was 5k crowns
    3) When they released the game on Steam, CE price went down to only 3k - 3.5k crowns. You could sell a 2* recipe for 8k crowns, and 3* for 20k crowns, due to a high demand.
    4) People were doing only 3 rooms on JK depth 16, because it was too hard to do all four.
    5) I got kicked from parties for openining Danger rooms, because it was too hard to do them without multiple energy revives.
    6) If you had Fang of Vog, you have been an SK God. People were inspecting you and commenting on how awesome your skill was, because Vana was so damn hard.
    7) FSC was hard. Vanaduke was very hard. Nobody was using Shiver + Blitz, we didnt know about that technique. AP was the way to go.
    Cool During a Vanaduke fight. we had to use a trick when one of the party members just bumped zombies into the top right corner, making them stuck there. That way Vanaduke never summoned new zombies/Guards, unless sombody was stupid enough to kill zombies.
    9) There was another trick, when you stood in the corner, holding a water ball. When Vanaduke rushed into you, you dropped the water and moved aside, making Vana stuck behind the newly spawned water ball.
    10) During the last D27 FSC fight, we used totems from the earlier fight to block off Trojans near the gate.

    I'm almost reaching my first year so I May as well contribute:
    -JK was hard as balls.
    -FSC was like the hardest thing known to man
    -CE was around 5k
    -No CE promotions
    -What's an accessory?
    -What be this PvP magic?
    -There's something harder than FSC?! (SLs)
    -MIssions? Wrong game buddy.
    -Vanilla was just as good as UV'd
    -Arenas were the s***
    -Vog and Azure were the best
    -FoV was the god weapon
    -Haven 1 was the trade channel
    -The DA was actually useful

    It's been a good run, but lately sh**'s been falling apart. People leaving every other week, same old routine, really REALLY stupid updates. Iunno, I'll still play but not to the liking that I had before.

    Just a couple of things i remembered:

    1. We couldnt switch loadouts before each depth. The only place we were able to do so was at Basil.
    2. On FSC depth 25, we had to use some special tactics to beat rooms at right-top and and left-top. Because that transparent field is a bit glitched and you can sometimes shoot through it, we had to run into the room, trigger all zombies and Trojans, run out of the room, wait till the mobs come to that field and shoot them. Trojans also killed half of the zombies themselves, lol
    3. You could make good money on selling recipes.
    4. Flame souls cost enormous money, because you needed them for crafting Vogs and they were so hard to get.
    5. There were no damage/ctr/asi trinkets. The only useful trinkets were the Heart Pendants, but yet again, you couldnt craft them yourself. Heart Pendants were available at the Guild Hall in Beta, but then OOO removed that option. So after that, Pendats became very rare and expensive items.
    6. Zombies were faster. OOO released a patch in Autumn that lowered their speed, making them much easier.
    7. Zombies didnt bite after the jump like they do now.
    8. There are no enemies in the game at this moment that can cause a sleep effect. but back in the days, while crafting you could get a Sleep status resistance UV. Imagine - rage crafting wolvers and getting Sleep Max. What a waste of money, lol
    9. UVs were rare. I know that last Autumn one guy bought a Grey Feather Armor(or Helmet, i dont remember exactly) for 600$. It had double Max UV on it. Imagine the disappointment when OOO released the patch that allowed locking UVs, lol
