  1. BNS Community in a nutshell

    Pretty much what I do with this 'community' most of the time,I just ignore everything I can. Got a random whisper yesterday about my Gon's bootie 'cause Stinger outfit' but I just ignored it and said nothing,not really into such small talk or whatever. Stuff like that video,I just walk away and mind my own business,same with faction chat for the most part. Not worth reading the cancer that happens there way too often.
  2. Took me around 2 months to get to 523 Ap 'HM8' on my FM without any help from friends or guild,did everything with randoms or solo,rather casually. Leveling,around 1+ week but I took my time cause I read and watch the story.
  3. Scythe?Sure thats nice but locked to Lyns,no thanks. Its bad enough that BD is locked to Lyns,otherwise I would play it:P
  4. Risk your life 1 and 2 for a good 3-4 years but that game is mainly PvP at endgame,never had to rely on a Guild there,even tho I was in one it wasn't needed. Switched to Vindictus when it was relased in NA and then EU so thats another 4+ year or so. During my entire Vindi EU career I had 1 long term guild and even that only happened because my 'partner' was there so yet again it wasn't a neccesity to progress. In that game you can pretty much do anything with a random group as long as they aint too brainded/undergeared,if not then I can just solo where the raid boss has its HP scaled according to the party size. You do need a good enough gear/skill for soloing raids in a normal ammount of time but my point is that I could get that gear w/o being pushed into activities I don't feel comfortable with. After reading this topic I kinda get the feeling that if you don't have an active guild or a static 4 man group/don't do pay2win either then you might aswell gtfo out of the game,well I get the idea now so I guess thats what I'm gonna do anyway. As for random runs here,I've tried to do Yeti only to get myself a new soul shield and also learn the mechanics,well that didn't go well so I don't even bother with that run anymore.Now I can only imagine how Asura/Nexus goes with F8:P Kinda reminds me one of the raids back in the earlier days in Vindi,doing it with randoms was a suicide 90% of the time but at least that raid wasn't that important anyway,unlike here.
  5. I can totally relate to this,exactly how I feel atm regarding my 'place' in the game. I've started this game on my own w/o any form of previous knowledge of the game and slowly played my way up to where I am currently '523AP HM 8 FM'. That took me 2+ months but that was fine with me cause I did it at my own pace and rather relaxed,only used F8 for my dungeon runs and it was fine till this point of the game. Now I came to realise that if I want to progress further I need either an active guild who takes me to runs or get 4-5 'mmo friends' and create a static group for end game content/4 man runs. Well jeah,that aint happening as I don't really get along with most ppl in general let alone being in a big guild.I'm not really a social person and if the game is gonna force that on me then I guess I'm calling it a goodbye and will only play for the story whenever its updated. I'm not new to mmos but I never played them for the social aspect and I always managed just fine even if a bit slower than the rest,but this game is like forcing it on me at this point and I don't like that. Too bad cause I do enjoy the gameplay 'pve only' and the design of the game,even planned to play it long term but theres just no way I can do end game activities with F8 at this point nor progress further with my gear.

    Well you don't really need to do dungeons for leveling up anyway. Soloed up to 50 with my FM and pretty much only did Blackram Narrows and Tomb of Exiles for my breaktrough weapons,rest was either solo able or wasn't necessary.
  7. Share your story about meeting good players

    Playing on my own since the Launch day,still have no one on my Friend list aside from blocked bots. I did run into some decent ppl but I don't really friend list others unless they want to,then I accept it but I'm generally not a chatty person. Not really talking in faction chat either,sometimes I ask stuff myself or answer questions if I can but thats about it. Week ago or so I did a Cold Storage run where I ran into a guild from my server and they asked me if I'm interested in joining but I kindly refused it as I have no intentions on playing this game that seriously so the no guild thing is pretty much by my choice. But yea I agree,its good to see that there are still some good ppl around in this rotten mess:P
  8. Late game dungeons melee-unfriendly?

    Well idk how the game works in a Proper party setup cause i don't have a guild. But when you do all your runs with F8 LFP I sure as hell don't feel useless/Easy as a FM cause in those parties most ppl can't be arsed to do any kind of double cc or anything for that matter. In most of the Cold Storage runs I'm the only one who does double CC with frost beam/Fire tab,even if we have multiple FMs in the pt. I also stay in melee range as much as I can and avoid the Boss attacks that way,so the rest of the party doesn't have to chase the boss all over the place. Sure Melee has more to deal with but ranged is not an afk job either,at least not with a random party. Anyway,my point is that he should just play whatever he finds fun,regardless of how the game works or what others say.Playing Ranged won't make anyone a lesser player/scrub or whatever they are called. Well ofc if someone has constant performance issues/lag then its better to stay away from melee cause its not gonna be fun that way.
  9. Late game dungeons melee-unfriendly?

    I've played a Sin since the launch till the Silverfrost update so yeah. Switched to FM cause playing Sin in a party felt rather shet back then and I wanted something more useful in party play. I'm just saying that its not like everyone who plays ranged only does it because the game works this way,I was even considering FM to be my first char in this game and I have no previous knowledge of this game from other versions. Saying that melee makes you feel like a better player,well thats just Ego talk imo.
  10. No Orginal names?

    I keep recycling names from one game to another,not a fan of using new names every time. I took them from various sources and a book I read,so they are rarely taken. Names are pretty important to me tho,I would not be able to play with some random/immature named char:P
  11. Late game dungeons melee-unfriendly?

    Wat? You know not everyone who plays Ranged plays it because the game 'forced' it on them,some of us actually do enjoy playing ranged classes. I enjoy both and if this game wouldn't be so damn unfriendly to alts I would play both.
  12. Just logged in to spin it and took a screen while I was it. The 3 yar thing is the food for pets.
  13. Lately I'm starting to feel the same,some ppl can be so damn toxic in random runs that they just ruin the mood for the entire run itself. Just recently had a sin in a random 6 man Frozen fang run and we didn't even passed the first 2 mini boss and he already picked a totally unnecessary fight with the group,complaining that we dps too slow. He kept on going with his ego comments till the last boss where he died and shut up,gave me a laugh tho.
  14. More and more people expect to be carried

    Lately I also ran into quite a few leecher/afker,as in not doing anything in the dungeon aside from moving from one zone to another. 'not talking about bots' Did the yesterday's BSH daily run,got into an avereage lfp group but we had a 630 geared summoner who kept doing that,only zoned in but didn't do anything at the bosses nor said anything when we questioned him/her. After Blood Mane I just left the party along with the others,I'm done playing with obvious leechers and rather restart the run. That is just 1 example but its getting quite annoying tbh,why the hell do these ppl even 'play' the game when they don't actually play it:P Also experienced this droping out,sometimes we barely load into the cross server lobby and half of the pt is already gone just because of 1 weaker person. Mainly see this happening @Cold storage 6 man,some ppl even said it in the chat that we can't do it with this and that person in the party cause hes only 400 ap. Yet,ever since we have that dungeon I've only had 1 wipe cause we lost some ppl during the run. I have 508Ap with my FM atm but thanks to this kind of mentality I still refuse to run certain dungeons,I don't need kids with anger issues raging at me for the stupidest reasons.
  15. Ashes in fall = BEST OUTFIT EVER

    Agreed with that,but Jins can't be FMs and I kinda dislike Yun's pose/general look so I went with Gon. I don't like the full set either,just the outfit from the back and since I see my char from the behind,well yea:P Most of the time I'm using Noble of the Sea/Regium anyway. I just wish the long hairs wouldn't glitch so much with most of the outfits,probably at a later point I will have to change the hair on my char cause its glitching trough most of the outfits I like.
