My friend bought me the game since it was on sale. But my download is 40 gigs (holy schmoley!) so uh, yeah! Either way, got my account set up and linked to Steam and I'm ready to go once it's done downloading. Though I assume there will be some patching to do once I launch the game client itself.
That was what I saw in Steam before I went to bed, so there could have been more (different chunks), but it was only a small patch once I launched the game (only a few hundred MB) so hopefully that's all you had as well.
Been playing the hell out of it over the holiday break and am really loving it. The story and the world are just fantastic. And I really love the investigation missions, so much fun trying to decipher the clues and solve each tier. I started as a Templar which has been quite interesting. I've recently gone back and created a character for Illuminati and Dragon, but haven't gone much beyond getting to Kingsmouth with them.
I've struggled a bit with the concept of the "deck-building" for a build. I'm a longtime CCG player, so I get the concept, but trying to apply it to a video game is giving me fits for some reason. Part of that I think is just not being able to get what I need/want for the build without more SP. I think I've figured out a progression though and am running along nicely now on an AR/Blade build for soloing. I've just hit Transylvania. Luckily at this point, I'm gaining SP and AP at a much higher rate (though of course, you need a higher rate later in the game) and with the free points, I've been eye-ing some of the AP/SP boosts in the item shop as well. According to what I've read, they basically double your gain rate.
My character's name is Texa on Daemon, so look me up sometime
