And just because they could, they put a saddle on this thing and assumed that it would...

That got me thinking about vet rewards in general. It’s actually become a pretty rare concept in MMORPGs, largely because they were...

Blade and Soul seems perfectly fine with the current model of chopping up raids, as it...
