  1. The dust settles, the battlefield is left deserted... the remaining warriors of Earthrealm, few they are, have ventured on long before already. Beaten, battered, bitter to the bone and exhausted beyond relief from an ever-recurring grind against evil, they yet could not stop pushing towards their next crusade. Once they were proud and elegant heroes but now, after a thousand battles, the struggle itself is slowly consuming their last faint glimpse of humanity. Such is the nature of Dark Chi, the corruptive power they once strived to vanquish it forever - so it would appear. To them, it seems like a lifetime ago that they joined this fiendish quest. Now they all are deep in the grasp of an evil destined to consume their very soul. Is there no hope left for the survivors of this realm, no hope for redemption? As the eye wanders the corpses, deserted postures, forsaken cities, a tiny group is distinguished which has split, venturing opposing directions, directions afar where it all began. Who are these people? What are their goals? What challenges will they face? Will they be able to survive the desolate landscape? And, above all: Will they face and overthrow their own inner demons? This is a tale that yet remains to be told... ---------------------------------------------------------------- Yes, oh yes we are so recruiting RP-hungry citizens from around the Earth Realm! Interested in growing our experiment into something bigger? Then please do apply today, here or at: http://www.theblacklotus.de ! Alternatively, contact "Larranthia" or "Owytial" online!

    Nowadays, only ugly chars in Mushins.
  3. Frontier Server on EU! WE WANT IT!

    I would kinda want it. And i´d ask my pleb lolclan to return and play with me on it then. :D
  4. Show off your characters!!

    chi = balanced. country life... ... and chill Smoke wraithbloom every day.
  5. [RP/roleplay only!] TBL seeking members~

    A whole of three applications? Will the clan even able to hold that many people? Quick, Zenith, we need a plan! :o
  6. The issue has been resolved as it seems. A file check should now deliver the correct files to anyone.
  7. Low fps on high end PC

    Good suggestion, maybe even better would be HWInfo since it monitors pretty much any stat about your hardware, i e may help determining CPU throttling and other potential issues: https://www.hwinfo.com
  8. Thanks. But honestly, this is not how it should be.
  9. Same here, lol... Tried a full reinstall, manual delete of the file and redownload via file scan - no luck! The problem must be on the end of the update servers, i send them a ticket. Probably a new feature introduced with the emergency maintenance. If you look for the file you will find that it has 0 bytes! You can delete the file manually and get the game to run, but your login screen will be messed up afterwards. And another file is affected as well which i suppose will be missing later on. Here is the list of the files that the update server does not distribute properly: \cookedpc\00046801.upk \cookedpc\loginstage_003.upk Mods, if you see this topic maybe inform operations... Cause this will keep non-tech savy people from joining to the game which should not be!
  10. Low fps on high end PC

    I see... I´m currently not playing endgame content so idk, but a year ago dungs were fine for me, also general crowded areas and PvE are. It shouldnt be as it is for you, so the question is what is the difference in between our configs (other than you using Windows 10). -Disable the ingame crappy and CPU heavy AA and see how it fares (i never ever used it, perhaps that is the difference for you, if FPS improve by a lot without it you could use a different AA method such as GPU-dependent SSxAA or ReShade) -I suppose you are playing on an SSD but still microstutter from content streaming might be a thing for you. If you can, try an M2 SSD. -This driver thing you are using does not sound like a pure scam according to net feedback, however it is not needed and i tbh wouldnt trust it. With Win 10 you shouldnt worry about drivers anyhow, i mean if there is any real world benefit to Win 7 then this might be the one. -Are you maybe using third party input methods?
  11. Low fps on high end PC

    Generally the super duper performance enhancements that some users claim to suddenly skyrocket the FPS in BnS by are Voodoo BS - or the improvements are so low that only plebs with a toaster PC may feel an actual improvement. The solutions you tried are certainly not connected with your issue. DX12 wrapper, BNS buddy do little to absolutely nothing -- or even worse... A custom Nvidia profile may only benefit players with an Nvidia card that would normally belong into a museum... On your card, GPU settings for this joke engine are an absolute never mind (you may rather wonder how to improve the visual quality over default settings). With your config things should be much better and they should be somewhat consistent - even you will still encounter FPS drops due to engine limitations they will be way less severe/they will only occur with much more characters and effects on screen. Now it´s impossible to provide a satisfactory remote diagnosis like this but you can/should check a few things (and forget about the voodoo stuff): -CHECK THOROUGHLY FOR THIRD PARTY PROGRAMS! And let go of the overzealous virus scanner, of the online cooperative office suite, of the ask.com search bar, of the whatever questionable things you may have running in the background. -"Drivers checked"? Absolutely sure? Also: not always the latest NVidia driver is the best - new bugs may have been introduced (check Nvidia board/reddit). Especially with super duper "RTX enabled"... -make sure you are not ping crippled - if you are waiting for server response this will also impact the fluency of your gameplay -IDK but even on my OCed 9900k,1080 TI i (Windows 7) am not setting all full detail. Especially some of the Special Effects cripple the performance a lot (because of CPU limitations, it has nothing to do with GPU unless you are running museum hardware!). As a suggestion find my settings below, but experiment for yourself (effects for others set to 2 since this is the last setting that sill displays critical animations, for AA i am using ReShade). My FPS are somewhat okay to me which means normally not far below 60 and usually above 100.
  12. Show off your Archers

    As shown off in the showoff topic "show off your characters"... Haven´t found a bow i am really digging yet, but don´t feel like doing endgame content, so BAD LUCK. Very random background for very nonrandom content! Remember when stuff was being killed on the actual world map? Remember Bloodshade?! Wheeeee! "How i got Regium Corvus" A fairy tale from ancient times, long long ago in a game far away... Once upon a time, there was daily dash. At the end of daily dash there was Regium Corvus and everyone who d roll orderly every single day had a fair chance to get it, even the non premium plebs. And there was me, who was a pleb with some unlucky rolls but still was 2 squares from the end and would have gotten Regium Corvus. But then there came suddenly an early server down and when it came back online, Regium Corvus daily dash was gone! But there were a lot of crickets who were close getting Regium Corvus and so they chirped on the forums that the maintenance came too early. And the mighty gods of BnS, they listened to the community at once. And Regium Corvus daily dash was destroyed. And everyone could roll the dice to get it. The end. OMG - What an amazing story!
  13. With a good PC I have Microfreeze - A help?

    It´s always been an issue; despite the epic loading screens the game still streams (loads) small pieces of new content as you play (textures, maybe even sounds, not sure). It gets better if you use a fast .M2 SSD, It used to be really smooth with that config (compared Samsung 860 after upgrade to m2 Toshiba RD400 back in the day and it was a blast), but i feel that recently even with m2 tiny lags are to be felt every now and then which sucks - may however be an issue on my end. There are some tools/tweaks that claim to circumvent this but i found nothing working in a satisfactory manner. However there is a solution that works 100% - other than hoping for a client update...... Take advantage of the cheap RAM prices and install the game to a RAMDISK. BAM, problem solved. Note: No matter how bad the coding, in the end you always can bruteforce it with performance.
  14. Deleted

    Such a shame that you are on the other side of the pond. We are desperately seeking cute Lyns over here in the EU! Could you ship us some?
  15. [RP/roleplay only!] TBL seeking members~

    RP > AP !
  16. Show off your characters!!

    Leressica-Owytial Soyjin Yun Chinong (Keepo) Bonus content (GFX: Reshade SMAA, Curves, HighPassSharpen)
  17. [RP/roleplay only!] TBL seeking members~

    Gather up, heroic ambassadors of the Earthen Realm! Wondering about your loved ones? Fret not, for TBL, official inventors of the Fashion Police title (click here to learn more - no, we don´t demand free outfits in return @NCSOFT), are on the verge of returning to these shores! Fortunately, this time it will not be the usual AP-hampsterwheel grindfest for us... Instead, TBL will return as a strictly roleplay (RP) clan with no particular goals whatsoever despite the one of, well, doing lots of RP in Blade and Soul! We are more or less experienced in online and real life RP, but this is our very first take on running a roleplay-centric clan in an MMORPG. We are thrilled to see how it works out and no matter the path ahead and the outcome we intend to have lots of fun. We hope for nice and somewhat mature fellow players with similar interest to join and provide their immersive input to grow this into a success. Supposedly we will be going life one day after the archer class launch. This topic will be updated with more information in time prior to that. The clan will have a preference for Yun and Lyn, other races will be accepted as well, however they may need to work towards earning their trust. All that a character will need to join is the ability to access the Moonwater Plains. We also shall ask for a small backstory/character sheet to maintain a bit of a quality standard -examples will follow in time- and save us from a possible invasion of Mary Sues. Decent English skills paired with the will to talk in character are needed as well. We have determined a lovely location for housing and general areas around for possible plots. Everything else will be announced within the upcoming weeks, given that NC does not fail us in supplying the archer class update. If you are already interested then leave us a message here or over on our clan forums at http://www.theblacklotus.de/. Thank you for reading and have a nice day!
  18. Huge Performance Issues with newest Nvidia Driver

    First off: With the myriad of possible hardware combinations it is very unlikely that your sudden issue accounts for everyone else as well. But yea, newest driver does not always equal best. With Nvidia and an "older" GPU, you often reach a point where there are no additional gains to be expected from new driver releases, possibly even setbacks. Then again, when playing the latest games, you might want the driver support for them. So what to do? Well, check for yourself what works best OR check the work others have been doing for you already. In your chase - GF 10xx user - this guy has some valuable info for you: https://www.esportstales.com/tech-tips/should-update-nvidia-gpu-drivers-benchmarks-by-version It should be clear that BnS is one of those "older" game titles. I myself, GF 1080Ti playing at a 1600p resolution, I7-9900k @ 5150, Windows7, fast m2 SSD (matters for content streaming), find the 399.24 driver to work, indeed, very well for me in BnS. I know miracolous performance enhancements are claimed often by people here... But honestly, using the extremely GPU-intensive (but also pretty!) 2x SSxAA i am playing at a surprisingly stable capped 100 FPS, occasionally dropping to 80ish with a decent number of PCs on the screen or when new visual content is being streamed. In Mushins, i barely manage to squeeze the FPS to 50 standing closeup in the middle of the crowd. Settings are almost at max with the exception of shadow quality lowered to 3, shadow visibility at 4, effects for others to 2 and the advanced water, "physics", motion blur effects disabled. Enhanced lightning and ambient occlusion enabled for justice. This may or may not be a similar case for you. Yet again: One result is basically none. There is just too many other potential disturbance which can occur with different hardware combos and, in particular!, software/background process combos. As an avid gamer, you still want to keep your system clean of slackware, same as back in 1999. :P
  19. Some help

    BnS / UE3 mag Intel CPUs mit hoher IPC... Ich würde sowas hier nehmen (effektiv solltest Du an der CPU nicht mehr sparen). Irgendwie kann ich keine Warenkörbe mehr teilen, egal, hier also Einzelteile: https://www.alternate.de/Intel/Core-i5-9400F-Prozessor/html/product/1503094? https://www.alternate.de/GIGABYTE/Z370P-D3-Mainboard/html/product/1395886? (sollte ein aktuelles Bios haben) https://www.alternate.de/Corsair/DIMM-16GB-DDR4-3000-Kit-Arbeitsspeicher/html/product/1218098? https://www.alternate.de/Kingston/A400-480-GB-Solid-State-Drive/html/product/1351900? https://www.alternate.de/GIGABYTE/GeForce-GTX-1060-WINDFORCE-2X-OC-D5X-6G-Grafikkarte/html/product/1552545? https://www.alternate.de/Chieftec/GPM-550S-PC-Netzteil/html/product/1279494? https://www.alternate.de/Deepcool/TESSERACT-SW-RD-Tower-Gehäuse/html/product/1506346? = 666 Euros, incl. Case, MUHA!
  20. The Yun thread

    My first Yun... in preparation for the archer launch i decided to waste (a lot) of time for this... :D If i´ll be starting again indeed, then it´s only gonna be doing a (Yun?) RP clan. Not feeling like grinding dungeons endlessly or joining the silly AP wallet race.
  21. Not only that blue quests were part of the story, they were an integral part of the world. What else am i supposed to be doing now in the world? I hate dungeons! I wanna enjoy this game my way, explore the countryside, do silly things with people, be social! Enjoy what is great about this game, the setting and general atmosphere, the world and the characters! That is fun to me! And not being forced to join the retarded dungeon grind. I don´t care for my stupid AP count.
  22. I was also farming Obisidian Serpent, thou the quest got a bit annoying i kinda enjoyed the routine. People say that content outside of dungeons and bgs is a "waste of time". Well guess what: I am playing BnS to waste my time. Why am i forced to discard the beautiful world and earlier content of this game? I cricketing hate dungeons!!!
  23. Heh. I suppose most highend "gaming"mainboards come with a ps/2 connector for those mechanical gaming keyboards supporting full n key rollover and low latency. Heh.
  24. That keyboard is topkek; maybe just something for rich or silly people to waste their money. If you want optimal response time you should be fine with any mechanical keyboard using a PS/2 connector (analog is usually the fastest and also desired option in this case, since it allows full n key rollover). Such keyboards are avail from 50 EUR onward. I would take care that i get one with proper Cherry switches and not their chinese clones. There are a lot of keyboards on the market that offer these and PS/2 connectivity. Save the excess money you would have spend on that Razer bling-bling-trololol for a proper gaming machine - in particular a strong CPU - or at least a fast SSD for this game. Things that will all improve your reaction time much more: A screen with very low latency, response time, higher refresh rate (i. E. 120 HZ), faster internet, faster computer......
  25. Show off your characters!!

    Oi! Just checking what outfits they added while i´m not playing. Found that abload.de is banned here now - forced to join the plebeian crowd at imgur. So anti-cool. You look good in high-res You’ve got uber chat skills Won’t you grind dungs with me - endlessly Tanking mobs is my role I maintain aggro But the sin doesn’t know, he’s not MT tonight Blade and Souuul is a feeling Who needs a social life...
