So. I'm not very experienced with PvE, but I'm not bad at the Archive. I typically do the first 3 arcs solo without a companion. I admit I probably can't make it past that point by myself but it's also because of the time constraint factor... I haven't tried tanking up because I just kinda don't want to (not necessarily because I'm stubborn but because of the time.)
Letting you know this because I wouldn't want someone really good joining me and then being upset with me. I would however be willing to alter my build and tactics to accommodate a duo partner, especially if we decide we're compatible and are going to play together more than once.
My hope is basically to just clear the arcs faster, have someone to talk to, and open more chests. It will be fun for me to see how far we can go, but that isn't 100% my goal. I think if we can start knocking out 5 or 6 arcs I'll be very pleased. And who knows? Maybe more.
I'm on Xbox NA, Eastern time zone, and play from like 10pm to midnight most nights.
Oh and not to be a jerk-- like I said I'm not that good-- but please be a halfway experienced/knowledgeable player with a little experience with Endless Archive. We can figure the rest out together!
