About Karrya

  1. I stopped playing BnS around August of last year and would like to try playing again now. I remember last time I played I was still struggling to upgrade gear and farm enough gold and resources. Is the game terribly grindy right now? And how much has changed since last year? My main was a Blademaster and I really enjoyed the combat system and PvP, so I'm looking forward to getting back into that and also I want to see what has been added to the story. I'm just worried it'll be overwhelming trying to re-learn my class and all the changes that have probably occurred as well as trying to grind and farm to get caught up on gear. Any tips or advice for a returning player?
  2. I'm trying to do a fresh install of the game, and I'm running into some issues. I get the game downloaded into my SSD folder, and when I try to start the install setup, I get the message: "Windows is searching for NCLauncher.exe. To locate the file yourself, click Browse." If I DO NOT click browse, and let windows continue to search for the launcher, I end up receiving this message: "The item 'NCLauncher.exe' that this shortcut refers to has been changed or moved, so this shortcut will no longer work properly. Do you want to delete this shortcut?" And if I click 'Yes' it deletes the desktop shortcut. If I do the same thing again, and CLICK browse this time and try to show windows where the client launcher is at, then nothing happens. So then I tried going into the file and manually starting the client, since Windows is having trouble for whatever reason, locating it. And this is the message I end up receiving: "Please launch the game through the game launcher.(3002)" So I have no idea how to fix this or what exactly is causing the problem to begin with. Its a complete fresh install, so I don't get why or how Windows can't find the launcher?? Has anyone else had any similar issues, or does anyone know how I can fix this? I'm not sure what else to do. =(
  3. BladeMaster - Soul Shield Combination?

    Thank you both so much!!! I seriously appreciate the help!! I was so confused, but I started looking over stats and such last night, trying to figure up what soft caps I needed to aim for and such. But both your answers were VERY helpful, thank you again!!!<3
  4. Warlock Leveling - Skill Building

    Thank you so much for the response LaVera! I've been so busy with classes I haven't been able to play my warlock much. But back to leveling today, and I really appreciate the advice for the skill build, thanks so much!<3
  5. What is considered the best soul shield comp for BM's if you are trying to min/max? Currently I have Bloodshade Harbor 1-8, Endless Tower 1-6, and Naryu's Lab 1-4 and 6. Just not sure how I should be combining them all so that my character is doing good damage. I see so many people with a crap ton of Health, but they aren't using all o f the Naryu's Lab pieces, just a couple. So how do you get a bunch of health while still doing a lot of damage? I'm still working on trying to get the other Endless Tower pieces, as well as Naryu lab pieces.
  6. Can someone give me a detailed run down of all the things I need to do and have completed in order to be ready for the level 50 content release? I'm hearing so many different answers, and everyone has a different opinion, I'm so confused. I'm still in the process of upgrading my weapon and accessories, and am trying to get them finished as quickly as possible, but I still feel like I'm missing other things too. Is there a certain point I should stop leveling my weapon and accessories, because some people are saying to just get it to awakened siren and others are saying its better to get it to pirate? I just want to make sure I'm ready and prepared for the next content release so I don't start the release off behind everyone else. =/
  7. I'm currently leveling a warlock and am not sure what direction to go in as far as putting points in my skill tree. I'm worried that the way I've been putting points in so far is not correct. I've tried looking up leveling guides for warlocks, but haven't been able to come across anything helpful or specific as far as leveling goes, just end game builds as well as pvp builds. So while leveling, should I start out putting points into my Thralls abilities and beefing him up first, or should I be putting points into my own abilities? Again, I'm not sure which I should focus on first or if I'm going about it the right way to begin with. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. As of this moment while typing this post, I just hit level 25.
  8. Blade Master - Macros?

    Thank you both for the responses!! I had no clue macros were bannable in the game, but I'm actually very relieved to hear that. I guess I should really start taking faction chat with a grain of salt. I'm going to work harder on learning my rotation and staying alive during Blackwyrm. I wasn't excited at the prospect of using macros anyways, just because I love the combat system in this game, and macros seem like they would make it not so fun anymore. Thank you again for the replys!
  9. As a blade master, are there specific macros I should be using? I've never really used macros in previous MMO's for dps rotations, I mean I've had a couple, but nothing like assigning 5 abilities to one macro. Personally, I don't really think I would like using macros. However, last night I killed Blackywyrm for the fourth time and I still couldn't do enough damage to get a treasure box, so again my daily quest to kill her wasn't complete. Someone in faction chat told me to use macros. I've tried looking up blade master guides, and I've found quite a few, but none of them list macros. I know if I want to get my damage up, I'm going to have to just work harder and work on my overall rotation. It would also probably help immensely if I didn't die so often on Blackwyrm so that I can do more consistent damage. But, I'm still worried about the whole macro thing, should I be using them? Will I be considered a baddie if I don't use them? >_<
  10. Fresh Lvl 45 - Things I need to work on?

    Yay I was doing a lot of things right already!! This was perfect, thank you Ghobe! I'm omw to getting good :3
  11. Hi there. I'm looking for some advice and worldly wisdom for a fresh 45 Blademaster! My main toons name is Wulfey and I just hit 45 on her. (I first started leveling a summoner, hence the name Karrya, but have switched to blademaster as my main because I find the class very fun to play!) I'm posting here on the forums to ask for advice for what to do after hitting 45. So far, I've been trying to do my Blackram Supply, Bloodshade Harbor, and Faction Dailies. (Also, I completed the story line as far as questing goes, so all of that is done too!) I just recently got my first blackwyrm kill, although I didn't get a treasure box to drop from her. q_q I need to work on staying alive long enough to actually do some damage . . . I've also been trying to upgrade all my gear. I'm at the point now where I need soulstones to upgrade things, so I'm working on getting those with dailies. I've also been trying to farm and get the complete bloodshade harbor epic soul shield set. I only have a couple epic pieces right now, and the rest are blue quality, but I've been fusing them with crit soul shields from blackram supply and bloodshade harbor. I've tried out Mushins tower twice now, and I'm hitting a small road block at level 4. I believe my issue lies in my damage and that I'm not doing enough of it, so I think I need to work on my rotation, skill build, and stats. I know this is end game content, and I'm not suppose to be able to just face roll through it, so I'm going to continue to work on that stuff so that I can progress to the next floor level. So yeah, that's basically what I've been up too so far since hitting 45. My main question for the forums is, are there other things I should be working on that I am missing? I'm very much a noob to this game, so I'm still learning, and some times I feel really dumb because other people seem to know so much, and I know so very little. I really do enjoy the game and combat system though, so I am going to work hard to improve my game play and become a better blademaster and overall player. I've tried looking up guides for blademasters, but have only found one really detailed guide so far. It is not complete however, and some of the stuff on it is for end game stuff that is not currently available to my region yet. Can anyone suggest any really good guides for blademaster? Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated. (For both playing as a blademaster, and end game stuff in general!) Thank you very much. Karrya (Wulfey) =^.^=
  12. Blackwyrm - Best way to find a group?

    Nevermind, I just got into a group for it! Someone was saying that the channel was full and even if people invited you to a group, you still couldn't get in. But then someone invited me, and I was able to go to the channel. Yay!
  13. I'm having trouble getting Blackwyrm kills. Every time I see groups that are working on it in faction chat, I'm always too late to get there and the channel is full. I've yet to kill BW a single time. I'm online playing at different times during the day depending on my daily schedule, so it's not like I'm trying to get the kills super late at night when there's no people online. It's just every time I find a group working on it, the channel is full. I try to keep a constant eye on faction chat when I am online, but I still miss out on groups. How can I fix this? Is it just luck to get into a group and one of those be in the right place at the right time sort of things?
