About chocofernia

  1. most clans require discord for raid sign ups or general announcements, as it's hard to fit anything useful in the clan notice. it's also an easier way to communicate w the leader for if youre disappearing for a long period at a time, as the messages are saved/archived and wont disappear like blade and soul's. if you're truly uncomfortable w voice chat, i would suggest whispering the clan leader to let them know that that's why you may not have joined yet, i'm sure they'll be understanding.
  2. join a clan that does raids so you won't get scammed lmao. there are 5 problems with having a dungeon loot style for raids: 1. people can upbid on items they don't need, and people will still get ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ed over bc now theyre paying more for an item they need 2. copper wars are annoying, no one wants to wait even LONGER having to sit through that bs 3. people who don't hit pass and make EVERYONE wait 4. crashers wouldn't get gold split, that wouldn't be fair and they can cry to forums abt being 'scammed' 5. anyone can make a high bid and then go through the portal so they wont have to pay, restarting the loot table once more most people in f8 won't even stick around for dungeon loot bc it's a waste of time if it's not a higher end dungeon. why would anyone wanna have to extend a 30-45 min raid to like 1-2 hrs bc of waiting for bids and splits?
  3. Increase SSP boss health

    it wouldn't be a problem if SSP was worth doing, now there's usually only 1 dominant faction there and only 2 channels. maybe there just needs to be a new faction vs faction area for later game players, since ssp is technically for like 45-50 (or whenever you can go to Zaiwei).
  4. ok, i don't think the title really makes sense but i was able to get the event soul and now have a normal stage 8 soul that i have no use for. i feel like if bns allowed players to salvage either the event soul (if they were unable to get the legendary) or the previous soul they had if they were able to get the legendary. or since salvaging is so difficult, allowing us to use it to upgrade-- like the previous hongmoon upgrading system. so, say you got the stage 6 soul at like... 87% or something and youre still using a solak soul or stage 5 soul or yada yada-- i think blade and soul should allow players to use the event soul as a sacrificial item to get to the stage before the legendary(bc that's pretty much where they were, and spent the gold to get to it) or be able to salvage it for all the gold used or be able to salvage it for oils that would be used to get to that soul if it weren't a temporary item. but aside from souls, i think this should be used for all the other accs. let's say you have a stage 2* destiny ring, and then get an elemental ring from BT-- you should be able to use the ring to feed into your bt ring since it's not like you didn't pay for the elements you fed into the ring. or, if youre a returnee player and you still have the oathbreaker/siren/whatever accs and get the updated legendaries-- there's no point to upgrade the old path just to salvage it for 30 jewels when you could've just bought them w the gold you used to upgrade it, so why not allow it to be fed into the current paths? i think this would also be fair for higher geared players that likely now, don't have a use for BT accs if they have the TT ones, and also fair for lower geared players who are blocked by the jewel price wall**. *i use stage 2 instead of stage 1, bc it's at least 3+ jewels that were put into it that youre never getting back **to explain this to those that wouldn't know what i mean: on my bale9 alt, she only makes abt 40-50g weekly just from the weekly challenge, that's only 4-5 jewels or 2 jewels(depending on the buy option). if i played her more actively, that might bump to like 80-100g-- which still isn't that many jewels-- so now imagine actual new players who are likely at the same tier that can't get into weeklies, or those who arent able to run anything that gives more than 1.05g (NF below basically). anyway, YES i know, it used to cost more! whatever! but when it cost more, there was more gold coming in to where we'd be able to make the gold we used back just from quests rather than having to sell stuff on the market. i don't think players realise your income should not come solely from having to sell stuff. blade and soul is probably the first game i've played where people will so heavily be like 'just sell/buy stuff on f5'-- i've played games where i could progress fine where i could ignore the player marketplace entirely unless i was tired of farming for a weapon and just bought the sealed version. tl;dr: let us feed current accs w old/expired accs, or salvage it to get back all the effort(gold/mats/etc) we put into it
  5. why are BT & VT runs limited to once/week?

    (i didnt read any of the other replies, for starters lol) I agree w this tho, BT and VT shouldn't be locked out weekly. They don't lock DT-ST dungeons weekly despite being able to get legendary gear from it, so why should either of these still be locked?? I can understand VT as it's the only raid that drops the elemental neck and badge, but BT accs are no longer the best possible(thanks TT). You can buy the prisms from merchants or from trove, and the acc needed can drop from dungeons-- making it indirectly farmable. So, imo I feel like that's BNS' way of saying 'hey, this item isnt endgame content anymore since a higher elemental item tier is out, give me ur money and buy keys!' Soon enough, BT is going to become like MSP-- they already give 3 pieces from a journal quest, the updated story will probably end up giving a full set by the end of the year. Anyway, I'm rambling-- yeah raids shouldn't be locked out weekly; especially when there's the case of bad/trap runs, forgotten quests, yada yada. Unless, they put it on the weekly challenge then I'd be fine w a weekly lockout ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ or if they decrease the amount of resets needed.
  6. Ew, Lucky Dumplings again

    agreed, getting this events currency is a pain in the ass to get. not everyone has time to do ns, if, and el especially since they're decently mech-heavy dungeons if you lack the dps for them. it doesn't make sense as to why they didn't put the currency in cb and dragon like they did for the last event so then everyone has a chance at getting 3+ a day we don't even need these garbage lucky dumplings, i have about 500 in my vault that i don't use bc i can use better buff foods that they shoved onto players from other events/daily dash
  7. Questions about Clan leveling...

    if it's a social clan, that's likely why. only competitive clans can donate and level the clan up (from what i can see)
  8. excess materials

    ok so, i have a bunch of draken core that i can't use(this includes on my main and on alts), lunar twilight flowers(as if i need anything from MSP-- i already have the outfit), naryu silver/naryu coin(drops literally everywhere, and there's no more dragon blood to use it on), peaches and blah blah blah. all of these items are bound to account so it's not like we can just donate it to a friend to use. so anyway, my completely entitled suggestion is to give us 10000000 moonstones and ely orbs for each. jokes aside, allowing draken core be exchanged into helion core and vice versa. >lunar twilight flowers into raven feathers and raven feathers into hive queens wings blah blah blah. >naryu silver/coin used to buy lucky revitalizers(because why do they cost 15g in the first place???) or be used to buy items in celestial basin instead of using the naryu tablets. >and peaches for ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤s sake, make those account bound or add more useful items to the exchange merchant-- after completing the know thine enemy part 2 quest(when i already had both of my badges) i had no use for peaches anymore. (while i'm talking about peaches, putting the transcendence engine @ the peach merchant and locking it behind an achievement maybe so obsidians arent TOO hard to get) these are just like.. the primary items i can think of that no longer have much of a use anymore once you get past 950-1k ap(roughly, and this is only if you have both badges) though, if anyone has any suggestions on what i should do with these items, please do tell
  9. Sick of people recruiting after boss is dead

    recruiting shouldn't be allowed as an option if any of the bosses are dead or if they're fighting a boss.. or if they start to recruit and someone accidentally aggros the boss then the recruiting automatically stops
  10. Free raven upgrade

    if raven becomes the new baleful, people will just ask for aransu instead which will solve nothing if raven weps are to drop anywhere it'd make sense for it to be a drop on RK, but he drops the needed materials(animus, energy, whatever the 3rd is) to go raven from bale/sera-- plus this would pretty much open a window to some players intentionally looking for carries bc of the chance of their weapon dropping too p2w and would be a literal spit in the face to all the players who worked for it if they make it 24 man, then that means they'll have to make more accessories drop-- not only that, but having more people in the raid doesn't mean more players can farm their mats, they'll be too busy fighting over it and there'll still be 1 victor just like it is now this sounds like you want a handout to get to raven lmao was this a troll post?
  11. Are Horned Lyn Deaf?

    that explains why so many are gunners that dont know mechs
  12. How to Upgrade Weapon???

    press ctrl+i to see the upgrade paths and it'll tell you all the mats and stuff you'll need
  13. crafting guilds

    let's be honest, the fact that crafting guilds don't use untradeable mats is straight up dumb. i don't have 25 moonstones to just easily access to be able to craft empyrean stones (hell, i don't even have 5 moonstones), but i do have 25+ moonstone crystal that'll sit in my vault until i can do something with them. i'm saying moonstone specifically bc they're the only one entirely locked behind pvp content-- unless you get lucky and get a bundle from doing dailies/dkv, you're stuck buying it off of mp or running bg and hoping you don't crash (as if any non-whales would want to run it more than once) ANYWAYS either crafting guilds should use untradeable mats or use a lot less of the tradeable ones, like be realistic. why would pve content(which most of the crafting guilds cater to) require you to get items that need you to do pvp content?? i'm not good at math but i know that ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ don't add up (i don't think i've ever used the words mats so often jfc)
  14. Account hacked and no response from support

    the problem w support is they'll sooner respond to someone whining about their trove pull than someone who got their account hacked all of their numbers don't work and they take about a 10hr+ to respond at all. sorry that you had to experience this ): but how did they also get past the IP authorization thing? (you can check how your characters gear itself looks on bnstree but that's all)
  15. Is leaving the party a new trend?

    if i ever leave a party it's bc a. i assume they finished (with my long loading screens and people already leaving the party, i dont wanna run in and find out at the last minute) + i'll ask if they finished and if i don't get a response i'll leave for that as well b. if it's mandate and there's already 3-5 people inside who are over hm8, im assuming trap run, esp if they say they have an orb (in the case i get put in a premade pt) c. for cs, ill usually leave for the same reason as mandate bc a lot of people are impatient and will likely start even if not everyone is at boss
