  1. never got a purple venture token. seriously?

    got 3 out of 2500 chests. So you need to do more or you're just unlucky.
  2. Currency Exchange broken again

    The ones who are defending this is obviously the one who gained benefits from it's broken exchange rate. But as those guys said above, you're using real money to buy ingame stuffs. And the reason you do that is only to get better than other f2p players, or to wear cute outfits. It's only enjoyable when there're a lot of other players, which happen to be mostly f2p or only spend $12 for premium monthly like me. If you don't put pressure on the publisher to fix it, this game will see a lot of f2p/ moderate premium users leaving as when it was infested with bots since lauch. And all the efforts you made will be useless in a dead game. A lot of greedy publishers have seen the day like that, and no MMOs are exception. As far as I'm concern, I love this game's combat system. But if they try to put more of a gap between pay players and f2p players, it will come to the point when it's enough to endure. After all, MMOs will become outdated and get replaced by others. It's not like we have to endure everything no matter how unpleasant it is. This is all for NCsoft's good sake. We're the customers and we're voicing our advice to improve it. We may lost 1 of many few enjoyable non-target MMOs, but the one who lost more money is the publisher.
  3. F9 currency bugs

    I heard this bug is 6 months old but NCSoft didnt fix it. Apparently we can only sell gold at 1:4 max if average is 3.xx and 1:3 max if average is 2.xx and so on. Which means we have been capped and once the rate went down, we can never get it back up. This leads to f9 in EU and NA empty because richies keep buying all to keep the rate as low as possible. Please fix the cap at round number 1:2, 1:3, 1:4, 1:5.... and get it back to +-10% like before
  4. Im Vietnamese and this BnS Viet Nam is still being translated and far from being Close beta, not mention OBT. And then for some reasons they blocked us out of Humble Bundle E3 digital codes so we cannot get 7 premium days and outfits and not mention a Silverfrost Brilliant key? I want an answer, we spend $1 for charity its not much, i feel happy. But what i cant understand that they try to block us out of NA contents while Vietnam version is still not translated yet?? What kind of cross thug license is this? So from now on you will lock us out of every payable event by some Garena's shady contracts despite our characters and money spent on NA or what?
  5. I saved up my gold and mats for 2 months now and I really really want to upgrade stuffs. I heard a rumor that Johnathan tweetted there will be no trove this season due to it's too close to the last trove. But either he deleted it or it's not true, I couldnt find that tweet anywhere. I wonder if there're a trove this season. Anyone had read his tweet can confirm he actually said there is no trove? Beside the price for other mats can go up significantly or down due to this trove. Thank you very much. I really can't stand any devs that never announce anything before the events. All the games i've played the dev always announce the event 1 week before it at least. They didn't announce peach event even several hours after the maintenance last time. This is bad.
  6. About the peaches quest counting system: the more peaches you hold, the more peaches those quests will give. I think it's kinda unfair. An example: I farmed 0-20000 peaches in 3 days, 20000-45000 in 1 day. Then I really need to buy 2 forging orbs which cost total 45000 peaches. After that the quests changed from giving 700-1000 peaches each quest to 20-100 each. The cap is only 60000. If i buy something like forging orb or xanos disk i will immediately drop from high tier quests to mid tier quests, and if I really need to buy 2 of them I will drop to low tier quest, which is a pain to farm again. It should count the accumulated amount of peaches in Achievement rather than the amount of peaches you have at the moment. Or they should drop the whole system based on amount of peaches and just use RNG. That way someone who has 0 peaches can still have 1000 peaches per quest if they are lucky. Constantly farming forging orbs and xanos disks can be a real pain if they keep dropping the amount of peaches from high tier to low tier.
  7. Before the update of Celestial Basin event, each Flower of Lament cost 5 gold of mail fee, but petals cost couple of coppers each. After that, petals cost 1 gold each. While important materials like forging orbs or Flowers for soulshield cost only couple of coppers. Why make the mail fee so expensive like that? I farmed 10 Flowers of lament for my alt and it costs 50 gold just to mail it to them? Even more expensive if I bid all 10 in dungeons. If you want to restrict people to farm for their alts, you should imply all other materials like forging orbs or xanos disks with high mail fee too. Not just the Flower of Lament.
  8. Mail system fee needs to be changed

    Nope I mailed my alts several times and it cost only couple of coppers before patch.
  9. Special event chest

    out of 3 hours farming only get 1 from normal add. all are from field bosses. Event is the worst i have ever seen.
  10. Heavenly fruit

    Wrong. Other events were free. And this is based on HM coins or NC coins. And the drop rate is not high at all. It's extremely grindy. And farming peaches is the most boring shit ever.
  11. Like the title, I was putting up with horrible ping for more than a year. I'm thinking about using ping reducer to make my experience more comfortable. But I read a lot of topics about how NCsoft banned VPNs users and ping reducing programs. I need a confirmation about this, in case getting a ban for unknowning. It would take days and a lot of effort for customer services to lift it.
  12. My gears are 5 piece MSP with 3 piece Oblivion, stage 6 seraph, events gems. Currently I put 40 points in atk and 10 points in def. 807 AP with 2100 accuracy, 59% crit, 245% crit damage with wind build. Mostly with stage 3 HM bee i can deal 10k per hit, with petal toss around 20-25k. With stage 1 bee i can deal 15-17k per hit and with petal toss around 24-25k. I saw videos of sm dealing 40-70k per hit and with petal toss can be 100-120k per hit. (Around 500k-1000k per second). They can do naryu sanctum bosses with 6 men in around 3 mins. There is a video of sm solo DT recently in forum too. I wonder what kind of items do they use to make such a difference? And one more question: how to use stage 1 bee and rosethorn simutaneously? With my horrendous ping i cant click them the same time. They will always use rosethorn. Do i need to hold lmb and rmb the same time? They will do lmb first. Most sm can use that kind of rotation without losing focus.
  13. Hongmoon skill

    Are hongmoon skills still usable? They disappeared from skill tree so I dont know if it's worth getting anymore? And how to spec it because now the skill tree only has 1 stage for each skill.
  14. I farmed Flower of Lament for the past 2 months and got 5 of them, with 3 Petals of Lament. Mostly I got it from daily wheel or daily challenge. The drop rate for petals are not high, and people tend to bid so high on them. Now I saved up almost 200 gold and is ready for the cheap legendary weapon. But what is the cost of new Flower of Lament in the next event's currency? If I can farm all 5 flowers in the next event then I will try my best. But I got tired of this grind so even if after the event I couldn't get enough of them I think I will call it quit and play offline games. Already quit for the last 2 weeks playing Nier: Automata and now Bayonetta. Hopefully Flower will cost around 10 token each so with 6 token per day (I cant do DT or NF yet) and sometimes extra from event I might get enough of them.
  15. I see those whales who got to spend so much for old legendaries and now it became easier, they whine that newbies don't have to spend so much like them to get it. But now they're at raven, with new contents to play everyday, while newbies even when they get the old legendaries, they won't be able to do raven or higher contents because old legendaries are outdated. I saw those with seraph/baleful stage 6 died and failed with contents in EC, DT, NF everyday. Still half of them cant even run Yeti properly. What's the matter with easier geared up? You always spend so much money to get it without even trying to play the contents. Why you care if other people can get it like you or not? All you ever care is to feel superior with your virtual items. Now why don't you spend more to get even newer gears and keep your feelings the same? Or you don't want to spend more so you want the devs to keep it the same so you can still feel superior without spending anymore? Playing games is to enjoy the contents of the game, but all you want is to find a place where you can feel superior with only couples of thousand dollars, and don't even want other people to get the experience of enjoying new contents. Well let me tell you, hundreds of thousands casual players who spend some money for outfits occasionally are what keeps the game running, not some rich whales who spent thousands of dollars every six month when new contents are out. So to the devs you are nothing special anyway. If you want to feel good, spend more or nothing. The game get older and new players can get more free stuffs is inevitable. Take Aion and Tera for examples, they used to be so hard first, but now when they're too old and the player base dropped significantly, the only thing can help them survive is to make it so easy that people can get free stuffs for some dungeon runs. BnS will get to that point soon, it's a 6 year-old game. Now you either have to run dungeons and enjoy the game, or quit. Don't complain that the game is so easy. Not everybody can make thousands of dollars per month and not everybody can spend 12 hours a day to play a game. But it's their rights to enjoy the game, with every content it has.
  16. I use 64 bit with win xp sp3 compatibility like they advised in the forum. It worked for a week, but yesterday it constantly crash after 5-10 minutes. The longest time i can play is 30 mins. When I changed back into 32 bit it is not playable as outside the dungeons is all right, but inside it freezes. This never happened before because up to now I still play the game as 32 bit normally (before 64 bit update). With 64 bit not using compatibility it's 1-2 fps, sometimes 7 fps. It even crash my whole computer and show up the blue screen with some error in bios and system 32. I don't know what to do. I'm afraid the game will eventually crash my whole computer and I will have to install windows again. This is not a game, it's some dangerous viruses after the update. And NCSoft fixed nothing.
  17. I have only played for 6 days, and I already got 56 hearts, 5 crits and 1 day with a Daywatch costume and 1 heart! The crit rate is too high that it kills the challenge for people to run the event. You should add more rewards like last event, so I can at least try to get something else beside a gem and a costume. If you gave me all that in 7 days, what am I suppose to do after that? Please decrease the crit rate and give more rewards next event. Peace!
  18. Doesn't even use anything like macros, addons... never used 3rd party programs ever.
  19. I'm playing game normally, but in Task Manager my client is clearly 32 bit. I can't start the 64 bit version as my Launcher doesn't show the Game Mode which to switch between 32 bit and 64 bit. On top of that, before the update my game is running smoothly but after the update, I can't even load the game normally. It often crash and in raid it freezes so I can't even play in dungeon but letting other play (I became a leecher because of freezing game). I think the new 32 bit version after update have done a very bad optimization on my comp. I want to change into 64 bit to see if it can be better. But after I checked the error check report, I saw it recorded the "Windows didn't install Windows 7 Service pack 1" so it won't play 64 bit client. Weird, because I'm using Windows 10 Pro 64 bit, so how the hell I need to install Windows 7 SP1? Then I checked the forum to see how to fix, and follow the instruction to change compatibility for Windows XP SP3, but the game won't even load. It has a deathly black screen when I open launcher. I tried all other compatible option (I have all from Windows 95 to Windows 8) but it still doesn't play the 64 bit client. Only 32 bit now. The last few days I can't even play properly because game always freeze in dungeon. It's laggy as hell when I'm running in villages. Please help, I want to play again. How to open 64 bit client If I don't even have the Game mode to switch?
  20. I have True Siren Weapon stage 10. According to market price and my calculation, if I use route 2 to upgrade it to True Oathbreaker and salvage it, I will get stage 6 Awakened Ivory weapon, which is much much cheaper than salvage True Siren stage 10 to get Ivory weapon stage 10, then upgrade to Awakened Ivory stage 1, then upgrade again to stage 6. True Siren stage 10 > True Oathbreaker stage 1 and salvage to get stage 6 Awakened Ivory using route 2: cost overall (material + cost) :40 gold. True Siren stage 10 salvage to get Ivory stage 10 > Awakened Ivory stage 1 > Awakened Ivory stage 6 : cost overall (material + cost): over 130 gold. So it's clear what's better to do. But can I still upgrade True Siren stage 10 > True Oathbreaker, or the upgrade line is completely removed from the game? 40 gold and 130 gold is a big difference. I can farm 40g in 2 days but need a week just to get the same weapon. Anyone knows, please help. They made a very wrong calculation in exchanging the equivalent weapon now. P/s: I should notice that I have some of the materials left for own weapon line upgrade so the 40 gold cost is for me only. The real total cost for someone with no materials would be 70 gold, still as half as the new path.
  21. Skybreak spire

    First, you can try as many time as you want. If you're wiped and somebody left, you can just recruit and wait, like other raids. Until you leave the dungeon, you can still try as many time as you want. But if you can't finish it and leave party, it's done for the week. So make sure you can run or try it until you succeed, no rage quit, no leaving. If you can do it unlimited times, it will beat the matter of hardship as you can train a lot of time. And system is automatically coded to give you loots at least a box of legendary items each boss kill, so it's hard to re-code the whole thing.
  22. I quit since March 2016. After Lunar New Year I don't have time to play anymore. Used to play 15 hours a day in a month (Lunar New Year for university students are long). Got full lvl 45 and Hongmoon lvl 5 i think... Then it became harder to grind because of advanced bots in PvP and stuffs. So I quit then I played China version, it was great. But I cant process because they're pay 2 win and I don't have money to upgrade lvl 2 Legendary sets. Required for end game raids. Then I tried Taiwan, the same as NA but more grindfest because they reached to highest level of Legendary. I spent 60$ or so and a lot of gold in NA to buy some cute outfits. I still love those outfits. The problem is. I know it's long ago so now no one is at lvl 45 anymore. And everything is around 750-780 AP requirements or so. People running around in NA with Legendaries and such... Is it too late to come back? I can hardly play 2 hours per day. Maybe around 5 hours at weekends. I got a full time job now but money is still tight and ofcourse I cannot spend to catch up with Legendaries and stuffs. The question is about the Community. Are they willing to help lvl 45 to catch up, Are there any good guilds that are willing to do it? Or the community is so toxic that new players and come-backers don't have a chance to survive? (Shouting at newbies for dying in hard raids with new mechanisms and high AP requirements that impossible for newbies). Cause the last time I remember playing this game the community was starting to get really toxic and all the things above showed up often. Used to get 50 gold per day doing stuffs. And 1 outfit is around 25 gold. So now I think it must be 10 times more expensive. Conclusion: Is there any hope at all? I don't know but I still love my outfits and I think beside Tera I haven't play any MMOs this long (15 hours per day in more than a month is really long and several months in China and Taiwan servers).
  23. Even though i'm not so good and doesnt have max gears in any games, and I often go solo so i use random queue a lot, I've never found newbies annoying. Heck, I even guide them through all mechanics and they even honored me in a lot of games (Tera, BnS, League of Legends...). I think the elitists should not complain anymore and try to grow up a little. World needs people who shares and helps, not selfish shell fishes. And here is some information about me. Which i doubt some elitist even get there.
  24. how to use real money effectively?

    How to use money effectively: dont spend it on games. The End! Real Money should be used on Real Life Commodities. Spending 200$ to buy gold, costumes, subcriptions... is not effective. People can do what they want, but since you're asking how to SPEND MONEY EFFECTIVELY, thats the correct answer for ya :)) Feel free to spend it ineffectively if you love to.
  25. Is this game worth coming back too?

    Still, I'm in Old Man Cho server. I dont really know about botting situation in other servers. But in the server i'm playing, you can play pvp for hours and cannot find more than 5 real person, only hacking destroyers playing around. You can beat some, but mostly you will be beaten (because they hack). PvE is the same as other korean mmos: grinding for materials to get best gears, then after update, you have to grind again from the start. (you played close beta too so you should know). Sometimes disconnect, but not really often. sometimes lag spike, cannot escape combat mode (happens very often in Nightshade Harbor, once or twice in Poharan). Takes you 500g to get max gears (if you play 10 hours per day it should only cost you 10-11 days to get, since you can get 20-40g per day, depends on what you do). Bots and afk happen quite often in Old Man Cho too, and its an old server. Thats some of the major problems now. If you can bear with it, I say you should give it a try.
