  1. Below is a guide on how to install Blade and Soul on multiple PCs (say, a laptop and desktop), without the hassle of re-downloading the client and patching all over again. The only requirement is that there should be at least one working client ready (playable and with up-to-date patches, let this be the source PC). The guide assumes that the playable client is installed on the default path "C:\Program Files (x86)\" (for 64-bit systems) and will be installed on the same path on the destination PC. Just make adjustments as necessary if you installed it somewhere else (or intend to place it somewhere else on the destination PC). 1. [From the source PC] Copy the contents of "C:\Program Files (x86)\NCSOFT" and "C:\Program Files (x86)\NCWest" to the same path on the destination PC (over the network or via USB, total file size is around 20.7GB as of this writing). 2. [On the destination PC] Create a shortcut on your desktop and navigate to "C:\Program Files (x86)\NCWest\NCLauncher\NCLauncher.exe" Press Next and name your shortcut whatever you want (ex: Blade & Soul). It won't have the BnS default icon at first. 3. Right-click your newly created shortcut > Properties > Shortcut tab. On the target field, append " /LauncherID:"NCWest" /CompanyID:"12" /GameID:"BnS" /LUpdateAddr:"updater.nclauncher.ncsoft.com"" (without the outer quotes). The whole target field should now contain: "C:\Program Files (x86)\NCWest\NCLauncher\NCLauncher.exe" /LauncherID:"NCWest" /CompanyID:"12" /GameID:"BnS" /LUpdateAddr:"updater.nclauncher.ncsoft.com" On the Start-in field, put: "C:\Program Files (x86)\NCWest\NCLauncher" [Optional] Change icon > Browse to "C:\Program Files (x86)\NCSOFT\BnS\bin\BnSClient.ico" Click OK. 4. Run new shortcut as Administrator. Upon successful login, it will download the necessary registry fixes (around 9MB as tested earlier). Hope this helps =)
  2. Really sorry for the very late reply. You might have re-downloaded the game already at this point, but as reference for others, on your "NCLauncher" folder, there's this config file "NCLauncher.ini" containing the line: InstallFilePath=D:\BnS_NA\NCLauncher\Download The path specified by InstallFilePath needs to be updated (example path above is specific for my case). Also, you might have accidentally ran an old desktop shortcut. Please try cleaning up old program shortcuts (desktop/ start menu) and use the modified one.
  3. Unlockable Skills

    Hi all :) I'd like to know what other summoner skills are unlockable at the moment, aside from the following: - sunflower (from royal zen beans) - rumblebees (from skill book) Thanks in advance for the replies.
  4. About that "not censoring the game" thing...

    Seems like profanity is contagious...
  5. Have you tried using the official launcher to update the game first for silverfrost content? Then use the batch file again afterwards... I'm still updating on my side though. Will post back findings. Edit: Nope, can't find the proper arguments to make it work :(
  6. Stayed up all night, Level 44.

    Hold that Lv44 and wait for another leveling event. #kappa
  7. Bug at Twilight Garden Doungeon

    No acknowledgement yet from any NC staff despite lots of complaints from lots of users since beta... :( Really hope this gets fixed soon...
  8. I don't see what the big fuss is about removal of offensive profile images. It isn't game breaking in any way. Well, unless you are: (1) vain, who tries to show off his/her profile image excessively -or- looks at his/her profile image at every possible moment (2) a stalker, who looks at the profile of every character you meet (3) a perv/ weabo, self explanatory.
  9. Seems like chest rewards are better when opened in bulk...
  10. So I found a Lyn costume from a Korean site, but I don't know what its called: Anyone knows what its called?
  11. BnS Reaction Gifs

    When you've just upgraded and can't even windstride nor buy pill on Mushin 4F:
  12. twilight garden... >.>

    I don't think there's an issue with your launcher so you don't need to "repair" it. If ever you need to pass that thick portal again, just keep holding "W" for like half a minute (this long just to be sure). You'll be moving forward bit by bit and after some time, you'd eventually go through the portal. Hope this helps :)
  13. Also encountered this exact error while holding 1, 2, F, LMB and RMB at the same time for around 20seconds (after clicking/pushing them repetitively), out of frustration from Poh24 lag (playing from SEA just after reset, lots of players). It did freak me out a bit, but I tried logging in again immediately. Nothing amiss, except for Poh token/chest lol.
  14. How about accessories? Will they also have a different upgrade path?
  15. Dailies and me.

    @Tsuchiryu As per your question, summs shouldn't taunt at BW when there's someone tanking since it causes "reset" of aggro once taunt effect is lost, and cause mass wipes (see BW rotating around). Also disrupts main tank skill rotation.
  16. Dailies and me.

    I have taunt spec-ed as well, except when doing BW. I have yet to meet someone who'd forbid me to do so in any content except BW.
  17. Why so much hate for bots I dont get it?

    1. They accelerate the devaluation of gold and other resources by farming too much. 2. Hordes of them cause server strain and therefore lags to legitimate users. 3. They cause annoyance on chats. 4. They deny resources to legit users like quartz, etc. 5. They render other people's effort useless. Like people frequenting arena for soulstones to sell them -- now they sell them for way less. Don't get bothered by the IP check... if you did nothing wrong, you have no reason to worry...
  18. Bot KFMs

    Since I started this game, I encountered such KFMs only twice. What happened was: at the start of the game (fade from black), KFM is already on top of me doing damage. On all rounds of those two cases, I wasn't even able to move away, much less attack effectively. I'm pretty sure that delay isn't a factor since I always see my arena opponents move from the starting position. Sadly, this game doesn't provide an in-game video recorder unlike some other MMOs... and its not like people record all their matches nor expect that they'll be matched up to an exploit user. Destro bots are another story though... they're only common on gold rank and quite easy to beat, they don't surprise me anymore.
  19. Complaining, in any form, is never entirely useless. A forum post, an in-game report, a ticket -- different form of complaints but useful in their own ways. You said "reporting is not a requirement, but is a better alternative to useless complaining". What if I decided NOT to report at all, since its not required anyway? (and I'm tired seeing them everyday despite multitude of previously sent reports). Where would that place me if my previous complaints are already viewed as useless? I mean, how can a complaint be useless? It only becomes useless if its ignored. Well, at least we share the same sentiments that bots aren't needed in this game...
  20. Golly if I am compelled to screenshot every bot I meet then I'd prolly accomplish nothing on an hour I play. I know that sending them helps in mitigating bots but players shouldn't penalized by that chore imo. It should be the responsibility of the management and the GMs to hunt them down. They get paid for it. I pay to enjoy the game, not to do some chore I'm not supposed to do. Same with blocking spammers every time I login or transfer region. Cumulatively, that process of blocking takes minutes. People get used on doing that chore, but its not exactly normal to do.

    Reminds me of Fremy from Rokka no Yuusha XD but yours is prettier :)
  22. Unlockable Skills

    Thanks for your reply :)
  23. Yes, you can potentially get hacked through the game client if you add it to your firewall's exclusion list... but so far I've yet to hear someone being hacked in through the game client itself. Most "hacks" reported on the forums seem to be related to leaking personal info on 3rd party programs/ websites, after being baited by gold sellers. Gameguard -- rootkit by nature, is another story though. And you don't need to disable your AV, just add the client on the AV's exclusion list.
