    IT'S NOT ABOUT THE DESTINATION, IT'S ABOUT THE JOURNEY

    IT'S NOT ABOUT THE DESTINATION,

    IT'S ABOUT THE JOURNEY






    I started playing Silkroad Online back in the day, still in Beta Test, before the release in 2005.
    Although I had played other online games, Silkroad Online was my first MMO.
    Me and a few friends from other online games played a lot back then
    and after a while I formed a guild with them.
    Together we were mashing the keyboards for hours every day
    which extended into months, seasons went by
    and eventually we socialized for years.
    We made it together to Level 80 on the original Silkroad Online.
    A feat we were very proud of.

    Then after a few years we moved on to other MMOs.
    Eventually we went our separate ways to play different games.

    But the legacy remained, the good memories of camaraderie from times long ago in Silkroad Online.

    So, I decide to make a forum as a commemoration to recall and keep the memories of the good times alive.
    Then I saw that there is a new Silkroad-R with servers in Europe.
    Humm ... I'm going to give it a try to see if I can relive that old spirit.





    Let's see now ... I always wanted to build a full STR shield (used to be a hybrid Spear and S/S).
    Quests, monsters, the peaceful quietness and the chipping of the birds in Jangan ...





    I find myself enjoying the game again.
    Level 18, so far so good.
    Then suddenly ...

    TIGER GIRL  !   





    Run Forest !

    Oh, wait a second. humm...there is nobody around and I'm a full STR with a Shield.

    Why not ? I'm going to have a go.
    And so, killing wave after wave of her GIANT spawns one by one, I did it !
    I managed to kill the Tiger Girl alone !
    How about that to bring the old memories back, boy that made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside again.

    That kept me energized for a few more levels on my way to Dunhuang.





    When trying to understand the new mechanics of the game,
    I met a few generous people that helped me to form this new guild.

    As for the future, nobody knows.
    I'm just here trying to relive the good old spirit of Silkroad Online, relax and have a good a good time.





    If you want to join me, you are welcome for the ride.





    These are my memories and thoughts.

    -Yong




    * Special thanks and shoutouts to WARDSEON and DEYANIRA
    that generously helped me form the new DRACOS guild.
