Vindictus Introduces Vella, Sword-Slinging Fighter Extraordinaire

The very first character that Vindictus ever gave us was Lann, the nimble twin-sword-wielding warrior. It’s only fitting that, after hitting every other character archetype over the years, Nexon finally revisited their first character for the start of Season 2 and brought us something similar-but-different. Vella is a fighter in the same vein as Lann, but given that Nexon wants to make every character look and play differently from each other, she’s not just a gender-bent clone. She’s far more deadly than that.

Despite sharing a few moves, Vella is far more agile and movement-based than Lann. If your reflexes are up to the task, you will find her sweeping attacks and constant repositioning very favorable for avoiding even the nastiest of Fomors and great for fighting those big bruiser bosses like the Gnoll Chieftain. Unfortunately, this also means that she isn’t quite the damage powerhouse that Lann is, which forces her to sustain longer combos to deal relatively the same amount of damage. As a good chunk of battle time in Vindictus is spent fighting many enemies, we’re sure it won’t be too much of an issue. If you want a character that feels like she was ripped from God of War or Devil May Cry, then Vella is your best choice.

Although it is better than it once was, Vindictus is an awful game. After spending a year playing it, on one of the best guilds on either North American server.. It is a waste of time. The only saving grace is the combat, the rest of the game is a repetitive grind-fest with a laughable story. To gear a character adequately you are almost required to spend a sizable amount of real life $$$.. The alternative (not using the cash shop) will take you literally several months of heavy playing to achieve. Providing your luck holds out.

Not to mention the PVP, which you get nothing out of doing.

Ever since they started doing something about hacks/botting, the game hasn’t been the same. Marketplace prices are absurd, and the amount of money you have to spend just to enhance your gear is enough to create rage. I mean after all, who wants to grind for months, hoping for rare drops (it takes 3-4 rares to make one 70 or 80 weapon) only to have the damn thing explode while you’re trying to enchant.

Nobody wants to work for months for a piece of armor or a weapon, only to explode it and have to try again.

This is why all my gear is still lev 60.
