  1. The problem with this game ...

    As games like this get older, the need for newbies to group up to speed up the catch up process will increase, because the catching up process will increase over time to please the content requirements of those having been here for longer. I've seen this happening in other games like this. So yeah, maybe a step up from raven to aransu as starter gear (or a faster transition between those gears to not make khanda vihar 100% obsolete) may be something to think about in the close future. But still the catch up will be lengthy as time passes. As you transition from newbie to regular player, you will have streamlined the farming process to some amount. You have things you can farm and sell on marketplace, and your may have become proficient in maintaining dps for faster clears. Still a group here is important because no matter where you are, having people with you will speed it up by a lot. As for whales, they got to that point on their own doing, so I don't pity a bored whale, though the company may lose their most valuable customers if they don't cater to them and their high money demands. So the game needs them happy as well. So really, in the end, get friends, play with them and enjoy the game that way and at your pace, and forget about the outside world.
  2. Mushin tower 1-8

    If you are trying this now at like, level 50 or something, when you are able to enter the tower through story mode, know that the update now recommends at minimum level 60 HM10. I haven't done it but that should be a substantial buff. IF you are already level 60 HM 10 or more, and you are struggling, I suggest getting better gear and learn mechs. For gear, do all the soloable sections of the orange quests for some free gear. Temple of succession alone gives most of these so do that one first. Do moon refuge dailies (zavnar zeal 4 times and the daily for the 30 mob drops) for the rest. Get yourself a raven 3 weapon (you get dawn/rift weapon stage 3 from story, and you can convert it to raven 3 with an item bought from moon refuge vendor). Also get at least the raven soul shield (khanda vihar oath). You get most parts from Temple of succession quest, and the rest can be farmed without ever having to enter a single raid or dungeon. With this, most classes will be able to pull at least 100K dps or more. And from what I understand, that should be enough to clear the updated 1-8. EDIT:So I just went there with my FM who is capable to maintain around 150 to 200K dps and burst for like 400K in a good day. All fights I did there ended in mere seconds. So I can safely say that a 100K dps starter character can do this on it's sleep as well. One last tip would be to spend HM points in your 'P' menu on combat regen if you get hit a lot. But I'd prefer if you learned dodging and manage with the small HP drain some skills give. That way you can use those points somewhere else. Add also points to HM focus because it gives boss attack power as well.
  3. Blade & Soul is officially p2w

    Still was the truth. This whole genre needs a serious change. A simple facelift won't do the trick...
  4. Blade & Soul is officially p2w

    You've just described pretty much every Westernized Korean MMO running nowadays. Just add the part about showing off them "better than you" waifus with maxed everything and glowing oppai in low level towns.
  5. Archer??

    Yeah. That too. But adding more classes without fixing the initial problem makes it simply worse. I was actually thinking why a game like this, which still has story content to go, needed more classes in the first place. I usually see classes coming into games when the rest of the content slows down, or when the classes were already planned beforehand and get introduced at specific times. This game doesn't have hints of any of that (unless I'm missing some info), yet we have an extra 4 classes already?
  6. Tower of Memory needs to be buffed

    Hmm, a bit of both worlds then? Make the guns meaningful by having them do much more damage than they do now. That way people get to use the guns and finish quickly. As it is right now, even fresh 60's with temple of succession quest gear can do 3 times more damage than the guns. The current only exception is the last boss elemental shield, which is why people pick gun only on him. So yes, as someone who does this on multiple avatars, I'd like to finish quickly, but I'm saddened that mech can't be followed due to that.
  7. I mean the 149 pouch. You can buy that with HM coin. The 1 NCoin one does not have an HM coin version as far as I know.
  8. Archer??

    I worry that the game won't be better solely by switching to UE4. Devs need to be better at optimization. This game could run like a dream in UE3 if it was properly optimized. But that takes time, and corporate heads want everything done, ready, and making money in an instant. So UE4's improvement will be most likely minimal. By switching to UE4, we will only see what Epic did to the engine. Not what the BnS devs can do with it.
  9. Warlock. You give him soulburn for better dps. FM has bubble but that's a stationary skill.
  10. Archer??

    I thought UE4 was only for the mobile games?
  11. Nerf ToI + Trial Arena

    In a perfect gaming world, people should farm all of their gear and not buy it. But gee...
  12. Dynamic IPs

    Guess I'll have to learn and try that. Thanks for the suggestion.
  13. I suppose there are two reasons for this. One, pvp in this game is cancer. You get killed either from whales or unbalanced classes. I don't know too many people who can find fun by always losing despite their constant training, while the next guy has it easy because they have money and/or the flavor of the month class. Second, it seems those few players who want to pve instead of killing each other in the over saturated NA competitive market, are flocking to games like this. So you may not find too many dedicated pvpers in this game. IF pvp was fixed, then I'd see more pvpers sticking more to this game. But on the current state, I don't see too much hope for that.
  14. Dynamic IPs

    I know about about traversing my router's config, but I can't say I'm versed on it. I know where to check on who's using it and even how to configure local IPs. But other than that, I'd have to check on my ISP. As I said, it's a very recent change. Something I'm not used to.
  15. Shroom to Grow - no training points

    Oh. The awakening content update changed it all. You now can edit it only after reaching level 60 HM7 and doing the Hongmoon Clan quest. Before that, all you can do is change your main skill set (Fire/Frost). If you want to see how it works, look for "Blade and Soul Awakening" videos. I assume you are using a force master since you talk about flame and frost. here's a video explaining how it all works now, including rotations and such later in the video.
