I think it's more grindy than difficult. The fishing and others at least. Most the time I send my mage out 1 shotting enemies for quests. I haven't progressed enough to see any actual difficulty based combat and I've only ever played solo.

Nah, you can afk. I've done like 30 or 40 hours of fishing, made tons of money before the patch but it's just a huge grind. They added a chair you can sit in for more xp but it doesn't help too much. I use my second console and just leave it running. You just have to empty your inventory every so often so make sure you get those extra slots. 

 

Everything else is basically a chore just not as bad. And seriously as a mage combat has been a joke so far but I've only made it to the third village story wise. Fishing has been my priority.

I have the bloodborne looking skin and the whole set adds xp bonuses. But honestly you can skip all that and use servers with bonuses or eat some food that helps. Leveling your base character isn't bad if you only do quests. The pets do help but I always forget mine. Its mostly cosmetic really.

Fish in Banto or Zamato Sea. I mostly caught blue fish and a few golds.

I mean...it doesn't feel like an mmo since most stats are crafting or skill oriented and most the game can be solo'd imo, but it is a good game for what its worth. The story is decent and the gear is fun to obtain but it feels like more of a grind than anything.

I see. So for $14 (sale price) would you recommend it?

If you don't mind a seriously massive afk grindfest for fishing alone then yeah. I paid full price for it and wish I waited but I can't stress the grind enough lol. Its not like other mmo's. You barely have to do combat unless that's what you wanna focus on.

Fishing is easy AFK money. Given how the company's events on PC it would be smart of get fishing to a high level any since they will do some golden fishing events a couple times a year. 
Active money making comes from killing mobs and selling the trash loot.
 

For the plat all I need is horse training, gathering, and fishing. 

 

Edit: Don't need gathering since making a Shai gives you high enough level right out of creation

Yeah I have more money than I know what to do with thanks to fishing.  Never heard of the Shai in creation I'll have to peep that.

Hilariously stupid grind... Wonder how much it has cost me to keep the PS4 running every night for a month now afk fishing. xD And I have the feeling it will drastically slow down for the last 10 levels... Will take another month I guess. The console is also louder than I've ever heard it be while playing this game but opening the map reduces the fan noise to tolerable level thank god.

 

Funny thing is I know I will delete this game the instant the plat pops, can't stand the screen shaking constantly in combat and not seeing anything at all during night time if you have camera angle too low. Playing this hurts my head which is really rare, can't remember any other game that has done that.

Just to throw some numbers here for people wanting to buy this game. I played 100% for the trophies, had the best stats (5) and gears possible for fishing (+10 rod and +3 fishing armor(+5 is max but good luck trying to get that.. You'll understand when you try)) and at the end of my run, my playtime was 32 days. I did manually fishing quite a few times, about 30 to 50 hours while watching movies... Because it's boring af. Sure it's 90% AFK, but insanely grindy. The fishing trophy without AFK is a good 200 hours atleast. Triple or even quatruple that number if you plan to AFK only.

But you can zoom out of the Character if you hold the right stick for 3 seconds and move it down. You keep the settings if you use the left stick after that.
