    Melee is the way to go, and is severely underrated. With the lifesteal attachments available, it's definitely an OP combo.

    Toss on a M-Matrix Delta with a 90-180 damage blade and you have a free Vivo S10 healer / adjusted resto on you.

    Sorry if this is a little off topic, but just felt it needed to be mentioned.

    My set-up exactly ( not that high of knife though ) right now on Longus. I agree. ^^^^

    On topic: I love MF chips but I usually skill with them and not hunt seriously with them at my level.

    Good points, I say. When comparing weapons, melee should be in there. My main quarrel with melee as main weapon path is the range. I can always armor up and/or use matrix life steal amps to absorb more damage - that's not the problem. But on medium spawns, or spawns with low aggro mobs, there's too much running involved for my taste. With a laser rifle with 85m range, I can basically become a turret, shooting non-stop. More efficient when running skill pills at the very least.

    On the upside, high-end, high level melee weapons are cheap compared to guns, although they need to be alternated with armatrix melee or ranged to burn the shrapnel.

    This is why many melee hunters will focus on very thick spawn density or mobs with huge HP so more time is spent swinging than running. It does certainly limit options for mob choice.

    I don't get how could you ever recover the MU for that attachement. It makes no sense to use it.

    Mind Force is advertised as advanced profession and one day will be great profession with advanced abilities and advanced powers.
    It's just that you have to sacrifice years of progress in all other professions.
    Whether it is worth the fun is a personal choice so everyone decides on its own.
    The way you should look at MF is that it is an "Advanced" form of combat which you excel in after you have mastered all other forms of combat. As many stated you need to take some form of main profession to unlock Commando and then you can pick up MF as a main form of Advanced combat.

    With that said I never understood the use of guns in a fantasy MMO. You should be using Swords, Axes, Shields and Spells. In every MMO I have played I have been melee because I believe in up close and personal with my foes and using a sword. So when I started it was logical to take sword to commando while using MF as a finisher.

    Then HG and Rifle skills are easy to come by with rewards so taking them to get that extra HP and then be proficient with them is also important for events. (but guns are boring)

    MF can have so many cool new chips added and I hope they do so in the future and probably why Dan fell in love with it long ago. (the hope of what MF could be) However it is for the advanced hunter when they want to go to the next level of combat after they have all the other unlocks.

    My 2 cents.

    PS- Introduce some Shields as weapons and added protection to block with. Also there needs to be a force barrier chip that puts a absorb damage bubble around you.

    Entropia isn't a Fantasy MMO, it is a Sci-Fi MMO similar to competitors such as Anarchy Online and Eve Online. Plenty of Fantasy MMO's like World of Warcraft and Lord of the Rings if you want to be an Elf.

    Personally, I tried mindforce a long time ago back before synthetic and light me. Back when there was just regular me that was like 200%.

    I recall it being too complex and expensive so I walked away and never looked back. Now I'm so far ahead in other combat professions I can't bring myself to start at the bottom in a new one.

    Plus all the other things others have mentioned like availability of L chips... Etc. As far as I know there are no chips or implants that are crafted which is a big problem.

    It's a good niche profession for some but isn't sustainable for a large number of players using it for primary combat.

    Well yea I been an Elf and every other race in WoW since I played that since 2008. We are fighting demons and dragons here too just like WoW so I prefer my Sword and Mind force.

    Now we just need mounts in this game because I want to ride into battle on a Mod Merp swinging my sword bathing in the enemies blood.
