  1. It's not about logic, it's about profit. Seriously, I've always wanted to play a blade dancer but I despise Lyns, so I know it'll never happen unless the money crunchers decide there's a profit to be made. Be grateful that you get both sexes - if this were Tera or <insert other game here>, you'd be dealing with gender locks in addition to race locks.
  2. Why not? It cost's money and development time. If you've got a million or so dollars and a year-long time warp to donate to NCSoft, I'm sure they'd be happy to give you whatever you want. Otherwise you're just pissing in the wind.
  3. Well, if you want to tell someone to use a keyboard with a ps/2 connector and neglect to mention that the mobo has to have a ps/2 port as well, go right ahead sir.
  4. Heh. I suppose they still make mobos with ps/2 connectors somewhere, but that tech's been dead for over 15 years. Anyway, those fast keyboards aren't going to make any difference in BNS or any other online game.
  5. Microsoft has pulled the plug on v1809. If you already have the update your documents folder (C:/Users/[username]/Documents/ folder) may have gotten zapped.
  6. A couple of days ago my SF got kicked by a warden party leader 2 seconds after I joined. He didn't even have time to look at my stats. Maybe he doesn't like SFs or didn't like my name. Whatever. On the other hand, I won't join a party with more than one warden - they play ping pong with the boss while ever one else gets annoyed. To each his own. No point in over analyzing it.
  7. Destroyer. They have big axes.
  8. Please, please, please stop using aerial moves in parties. Please...I don't like standing around scratching my ass because I can't hit the flying boss.
  9. The thread is outdated. You ahould be able to just move the files and edit the shortcut for the launcher with the new location, W:\bns\NCWest\NCLauncher\NCLauncher.exe /LauncherID:"NCWest" /CompanyID:"12" /GameID:"BnS" /LUpdateAddr:"updater.nclauncher.ncsoft.com"
  10. I don't know what these guys ^^^ have been smoking but the folders are 34.9 Gb. Screenshots etc don't go in there. The NCWest folder is only a 47 Mb (that's Mb, not Gb).
  11. I started back after being away over a year and just used the level 45 gear I had and followed the story line. It wasn't that hard, so I don't see any reason to start over.
  12. If the letter is not in your quest letters or quest tracker then you probably need to open a support ticket.
  13. There's a small chance that the number will increase if the wep has less than 6 sockets.
  14. I've monitored my system activity during those 10 seconds and there is no increase in disk activity, cpu usage, or network activity until after the time has past. No resource loading, just an animation on a 10 second timer.
  15. Windwalk, windstride, windsprint, wind-whatever. Let's call it what it is: Map Travel. The same thing that exists in every modern game, except with BNS there's a ten second delay, purposely designed that way to annoy me. I suppose it's more apparent when you skip dialog and cut scenes. In the meanwhile, my warden is plodding along at level 48, from loading screen to loading screen to loading screen, occasionally interrupted with 30 seconds of game play.
  16. I appreciate that the path through the story is easier and faster now, but I think that 50% of the time is spent windwalking from point A to point B, back to point A, then to Point C... So I wonder, is that 10 second delay really necessary? I once that that maybe the client needed time to synch with the server, but...there's not much of a delay going f8 or the training room, so...maybe someone thinks that watching the same tired animation 10 gazillion times is entertaining? I dunno, I want to hit escape and avoid it like a cut scene and not cancel the windwalking.
  17. They're obviously named after the NPCs in Celestial Basin. The resemblance is uncanny.
  18. There will be an act 10 at some point in the nebulous future, but at present act 9 is the end of the content.
  19. Gpu is okay but your cpu is kind of old. BNS is highly dependant on single threaded clock speed. You may want to consider overclocking. You may have better results with the 32 bit client. You don't have to delete the bluetooth driver, just disable it in device manager.
  20. You installation is not complete. You need to run a file repair from the launcher.
  21. Lyn, Gon, Yun, Jin, Jimbo, it's just a hitbox to the game. Smaller hitboxes mean less damage taken, so everyone should play Lyns. (Dunno if it really works that way in BNS). Without true racial abilities it's just cosmetic, so I don't really care what race can play what class. Real warriors, however, do not have bushy tails. Lyn gunners should be able to use their tails as a second whip or hold a backup pistol in a special holster. I'm babbling. Feel free to whine at me because all my chars are Lyns, even the soul fighter (she's just wearing a Gon disguise).
  22. My lag was very bad the first few days, but it's back to normal now. Haven't had any crashes that I can recall, so no on that.
