Thanks for the welcome!
I bet I'll play a little and stop again, but I don't know what this game is that whenever I hear the intro music somewhere, beats homesickness and I reinstall, even though the grind, etc.
About Mastersmith / Whitesmith: what a shame things are that way. The rebalance came out for the class? I remember ppl saying that Whitesmith was very "weak" compared with other third class.
The problem is that I just don't have the patience (and time) to level a new class from trash again. If there is no benefit or purpose in playing with Whitesmith (PvM), I'll be playing with my Ninja then lol.
I'll google about the quests you mentioned and try to level a bit.
*One last question: Do you have any idea of the number of people who still play iRO (Renewal Chaos)? Not exactly but just an estimate? (For example: around 100+, 500+, 1000+?).
