  1. Most groups, pugs or not, will distribute gold at END of the raid. Most raids take an hour or so unless you've got a party of whales. If you dc's then you lose out on ALL your gold for this run, especially in pugs. No one will wait like 5-10min for you to get back into the game (don't forget the dozen loading screens to even get back to where you were). I dc'd on boss 3 and basically lost all my gold share because the raid was only 1-3. No one knew if I was coming back or not so they proceeded to just finish 3 without me If leader dc's then everyone's screwed. No one knows if he's being a troll or not, what if it was an actual dc? If leader is a scammer, or simply don't like one of the players cause he dies a lot, has a weird name, or whatever the f excuse he can come up with, he can simply not hand out gold. You're at the complete mercy of the lead when it comes to loot, simple as that, and that's retarded for an MMO where 99.99% of the players you meet are strangers. What if your party keeps dying at stage X, and you simply don't have more time to play around and want to just give up? Don't tell me that's "abandoning group". Let's see you still have the patience after wasting 2 hours on a certain boss wiping like 20 times. Then you lose out on your gold share as well because once again unless you're in the same clan, there's no way a pug lead will give you your gold and let you leave Before you tell me "join clan" solves everything, no it doesn't because dc's still happen, and not every clan is that friendly. Also not everyone's lucky enough to be in an active clan. Most players aren't in an active raid clan in this game. And don't tell me "pugs should also use discord". Like seriously, what pug will spend like half an hour setting up discord for all 12 strangers in the party? Such a simple way to fix this, it's shocking why they didn't go with this to start with: simply make gold distribution AUTOMATIC. Master loot is automatic and can't be changed for raids The moment lead picks up loot box, everyone in the raid gets a warning pop-up saying "leader has picked up loot box. Any gold you trade to the leader, until loot distribution is finished, will be AUTOMATICALLY shared between the other 11 players in raid" Anyone who bids on items and manually trade gold to leader, as said above, gets the gold AUTOMATICALLY split to the other 11 players Benefits: No more calculations on who gets how much gold at the end. You literally need a frickin spreadsheet for this due to keeping track of who bid how much on what. You can't just split total gold into 12 portions because that won't account for who actually spent money bidding No more waiting for gold sharing at end, which still wastes time at end of raid even if it happens The bid you make on an item is PERMANENT, forces players to think twice about bidding on something Leader can't walk away with like 2k free gold if he happens to be a troll. Worst that will happen is you lose 1 member Everyone feels better knowing they're GUARANTEED to get their share of the loot after this hard work
  2. Need some clarification from GM's or other staff about next week's event, so people aren't screwed preparing for it this week by hopping guilds: What craft level is required to craft the event item? How long does the craft take? I assume it's 24 hours since only 1 can be crafted per day? Or is it instant but there's some limit preventing you from crafting more? Are the items account bound or tradeable in F5? If account bound I hope the mailing fee isn't something ridiculous like 5g? What's the drop rate of the 3 achievement foods like from the box? Common prize or rare? Are these account bound so we don't get screwed if we get more than 1 of the same?
  3. Lol, you just completely ignore the fact there's a shadow gunner and not even mention both holy fire + primal force are for fire only.
  4. These places are out of date for like a YEAR now. Why in the world do skill items only drop from outdated dungeons? What is the POINT? Why not make them actually relevant and drop from places where people actually RUN? What's next, making void fragments only drop from BSH? It was somewhat bearable... like a year ago when people were actually running these places. This is not to mention the items have like a 0.01% drop rate. I've run: Sogun at least 100 times, 0 ember Necro at least 100 times, maybe 1 book dropped... like 6 months ago Gloom at least 100 times, 0 offal Masts at least 200 times, 0 offal It's completely appalling, like they completely forgot about these PvE skills, and made it so the only way you can get it is to win like 500 PvP matches, wtf? Or did they expect players to have the patience to run these places 200 times? Btw, there are ZERO volume 2 books for sale on marketplace right now, that speaks for how impossible it is to get it in PvE. The other items are all also extremely expensive. Ember is 500g in NA, while the offals are all 300g+ each.
  5. 30 lair runs on gunner - 1 box, 1 pistol dropped (some whale bidded 80g for it, lol) 10 gloomshit runs (about as painful as getting skinned alive, I swear this is what MMO bots were invented for) - 0 box, 0 pistols 10 DT runs - 0 box, 0 pistols 10 EC runs - 0 box, 0 pistols 10 masts runs - 0 box, 0 pistols 10 sogun runs - 0 box but I must've hit the frickin jackpot cause pistols actually dropped, gotta be like once in a blue moon I'm almost 100% certain they lowered drop rate of weapon boxes to something like <10%, what else am I supposed to think from those numbers? Yeah it's great brilliant keys are much cheaper to get now, but wtf does that help if you can't even get the damn weapon box to drop? How are new gunners supposed to grind basin for the 50k points for those weapon boxes, with only like 750AP? A lowbie grinding CB is hardly any faster than grinding dungeons, because thanks to retarded repeatables like "kill 12 600k HP enemies for 120 peaches", you might be lucky to only get 2k points per hour.
  6. There's a big difference between cheap, expensive, and stupidly high. Cheap is when they were 100-150g. Expensive but tolerable is something like 300-400g. Stupidly f-cked is when it's 1000g due to NCW completely forgetting about these things and left them in redundant outdated content. Does 1000g sound like the type of price non-whales should pay for a mandatory skill? I think anyone with a brain will agree it's completely retarded to have skill books drop only from obsolete content in any MMO. Does NCW gain any $$$ from us wasting time and running outdated content that can be done with 500AP? NO. Is it fun for players? NO. So what's the point? Simply because NCW doesn't give a f-ck, too lazy to make any changes, or simply enjoys pissing off players.
  7. Here's the "occasional" book in NA server. Lol. I don't think an explanation of how stupid this is needed, the price tells everything.
  8. What's even more retarded is that not even HARD MODE drops these damn weapon boxes after the patch. I've been farming ECHM and have not seen a SINGLE weapon box drop so far, WTF? Before the gunner patch hard mode was dropping weapon boxes like candy, even though it's kind of stupid to have only hard mode drop weapons in the first place. Why in the world would you need the weapon if you're already geared enough to do hard mode?? Does NCW really think people doing DTHM/NFHM/NSHM need the damn weapons? Weapons + shields should drop from normal mode where people actually NEED it. Next time you look at someone with a low level weapon, blame the f-cking game for making weapon boxes completely nonexistent, it's probably not the player's fault. They could have enough money to get it to baleful 12, but thanks to this they might be stuck at stage 5 or something.
  9. Quality of life changes that NEED to happen

    It's completely, 200% retarded that Asura is the only source of ember, while necro is the only source of volume 2. In fact it's the most stupid thing I've ever seen in this game. It's like they chose some completely outdated content that NO ONE even touches with a f-cking 60-ft rod, and made some MANDATORY items only drop from it. Also these 2 places are arguably the most boring, redundant and painful pieces of garbage that MMO players have the misfortune to ever experience. Honestly I wouldn't be surprised if NCS made HM Pellet only drop from Sogun, and offals only drop from Labyrinth, with a 2% chance, and no other way to get it. It seems in line with their trademark stupidity. Formula = choose the absolute worst and most hated dungeons in the game + make something extremely important only drop from it despite having absolutely no relation to the item.
  10. why are new mmos so ping reliant?

    Tbh this isn't even a true "MMO". What online elements are there in this game that are "Massive"? Other than F5, NONE. Do we have server-wide events allowing hundreds/thousands of players to participate? No. Do we have any social/RP elements? No. This game should be a localized team-based combat game supporting 6-12 players, that's it. I mean 12 people is like the most you'll ever get to interact with, pathetic really. Stuff like mushin tower are completely single player, why the f- do you even need an internet connection? Lol.
  11. Remove mailing cost for account bound items

    Paying coppers is fine. What I don't get is why SOME items you have to pay like fricking 5g?? It's particularly stupid that SEALED flowers/skins only cost 5g on the marketplace, making it completely redundant to even have them account bound. What's special about flowers, wisdom stones, xanos disks and skins? How come forging orbs, transformation stones, and even oils cost only coppers? It's like some drunk person just randomly picked items from a hat and assigned 5g as the transfer cost just to ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ off players.
  12. /facepalm Do you think I have mind control powers to prevent whales from being a-holes in F8? Do you think I'd give a single crap about dps meter if people simply shut their mouths instead of making comments like "hey look at that stupid noob with the XX dps" or "you're HMxx and only have XX AP, what a f-cking noob"? Do you know what "showing off" means? It means to make yourself feel good that you spent $5k USD on an MMO just so you have the privilege of talking down on other people. Blame this game's toxic and elitist community. If whales actually DIDN'T act like assholes to newer players or casual players most of the time, then we wouldn't have this problem. Btw, I'm not even a lowbie since my main is nearing 950AP. I'm speaking for those people who are getting talked down upon by the trashy whales. Also do you think it's fair that whales easily get to do 300k dps, while non-whales struggle with 60k? Stats are exponential in this game. You don't just gain 10% more firepower if you upgrade your gear by 10%, you get 100% more damage. And that 10% is pretty much completely off-limits to non-whales. That's what I meant by "unfair", though "unbalanced" might be a better word.
  13. How in the world does it make any sense that you somehow get locked out of CS/HM, but didn't get credit for the kill? So the system manages to record the act of entering the dungeon, but it chooses to not record the boss dying and not give you credit for the kill? Wtf? There are whale parties that can finish CS/HM within like 20 seconds. It takes a lot of people more time than that to even load into the dungeon (yes good for you if you have a $2000 machine and can load within 5 seconds, but 30-40sec is a reasonable time for the average machine for TWO loading screens). This is not to mention it's already extremely stupid that if you accidentally enter a CS where first boss is already killed, you lose your entry. It's such a pathetic attempt at selling cash shop resets.
  14. In order to be a whale you need to spend at least a couple thousand USD in this game. That's a month's salary is it not? Or are you from some super rich country where the average monthly salary is in 5 figures USD? I only hate whales because of the COMPLETE TORTURE known as 6v6. Who wouldn't enjoy getting dungeons done twice as fast because of whales in F8? Do you know how ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ing futile it is to even try to get a SINGLE win at that place as a non-whale? a) NCW matchmaking is purposely designed so that casuals all end up on one team, vs a team of whales. Why? So whales get to enjoy one-shotting others every match, obviously. You think NCW will risk angering the whales by actually making 6v6 matchmaking FAIR, where whales might actually have to put in some effort to win? Lol, of course not b) No matter how good you are at PvP, it doesn't do shit in group pvp mayhem. Whoever does the most burst damage wins, period. All that strategy and whatever in 1v1 or 3v3 is COMPLETELY USELESS in 6v6. Whales with credit card souls with 100k dps/sec kill you before you even get a single clue what just hit you Do you know what it's like to lose 20 matches in a row and watch your entire day wasted for absolutely NOTHING, because you end up on the fodder team every single damn time in 6v6? Once I get 10 wins for the stupid crafting achievement I'm going to literally UNINSTALL 6V6, wouldn't touch it again even if someone paid me 100g per match, that's how much hatred I have towards this.
  15. Did you read at all? Because supply is nonexistent. Unless you happen to be online at the precise minute it was listed for sale don't even think about buying it, in NA server. I haven't seen this item listed in F5 for the last few months. The more important point is that having to grind completely outdated and redundant content for mandatory items is just f-cking retarded. Why can't the big 6 drop asura ember + skill books?
  16. Tower of Infinity - share your experience

    ToI = cakewalk if you're a whale, impossible if you're not. Simple as that. Pretty much an exact replica of 6v6 in terms of playability. Just consider this place pay2win only and avoid if you're not pay2win.
  17. Lol. It's not salt, it's called being overly realistic than most whales are willing to admit. A) You don't require any AP to do mechs in this game, do you think people would gear up if boss fights were 100% mechs? B) Name one other purpose to whale other than to show off your gear? Do you think people would gear up if a 1000AP does the same damage as a 500AP, as long as they both knew mechs? C) You speak like most people in F8 actually know AP isn't everything. Well maybe if you only play with people from your clan, but most randoms in F8 only care about showing off that big fat AP number + insulting other people in this game, and it's particularly funny when all their other stats are complete shit + don't know mechs + keep dying D) Read again about the part where I said the major source of entertainment is one-shotting others in 6v6, NOT F8. The whole purpose of spending your month's salary in an MMO is to show off and have an unfair advantage over other players so you don't have to actually work hard. Don't pretend otherwise
  18. The demand is not high because the supply is nonexistent, there's like ONE daily sale of this item in NA server. Also, it used to be like what, 150g? Now it's 500g even if you manage to see it in F5. Why? Because precisely no one bothers with this boring + redundant dungeon.
  19. That's never going to happen. Whales = the only source of income for NCW. Why do people choose to become whales? They have 2, and only 2 sources of entertainment in this game: a) Show off their unfairly high DPS bursts in F8, then attempt to make fun of non-whales b) One-shot non-whales in 6v6 and enjoying 100% win rate B) is obviously more enjoyable than a), so where do they get their endless supply of casual players aka kill fodder? I mean it's not exactly fun if it's whales against whales now is it since they can't one-shot everyone? By NCW forcing casual players to participate in 6v6, whether it's for event currency, or weekly quest, or getting the stupid 10 6v6 wins to unlock crafting, as well as making sure EACH match will be whales vs. casuals. Take away the weekly 6v6 quest and you'll have 50% less fodder joining these games, and whales will be bored. Can't have that now can we?
  20. Exactly, why do tormented weapon boxes even drop?? To decrease chance of getting python weapon box of course. I've got like 3-4 tormented boxes but only 1 python box.
  21. This is ridiculous. Ran Bloodshade Harbour earlier, and the stuck in combat bug happened three times in a row. Basically after you finish off a boss, you're stuck in combat mode perpetually. Because there's a wall, you need to exit combat mode and wall run up to the exit. This bug has been there since 2015, why is there ZERO response so far? To make matters worse the only way you can fix it is to use escape (no summoning/unsummoning does not work), but that damn thing has a 15min cooldown. So our entire party had to wait TWO TIMES for the 15 minutes cooldown to wear off, being stuck in a circular room with absolutely nothing to do. Seriously wtf? Either Remove the wall and make some gate or stairs if the devs don't know how to fix this bug or Remove the escape cooldown in instances if the devs don't know how to fix this bug or FIX THE DAMN BUG
  22. Necropolis stupidity

    What is it with people doing necropolis preferring to AFK their lazy ass either in the centre (final boss temple), or simply camping at a ward? Are people not aware of the mechanics or just being lazy/stupid? Almost EVERY SINGLE party I'm in, where everyone actually agrees to finish Lycan quest, 1-2 people (sometimes I even have to solo this) have to fight Lycan. Most of the time it's the 600+ AP people who are just lazy assholes watching the lower levels fight Lycan, then complain later that "their ward took too long to charge". 2 HM9's camping at a ward that can be solo'd by a HM1, while two HM2's have to finish off Lycan by themselves AND start a ward. Are people this stupid? 1. EVERYONE has to finish charging their ward for the centre to open. IT DOES NOT HELP how early you start your ward. If you finish charging your ward 2 hours before someone else then you have to wait for 2 hours 2. If you actually got off your lazy ass, ran to Lycan and helped everyone finish it, then everyone starts charging their ward at the same time, it would've took half the time to open up the centre 3. Soul ward is literally steps away from the starting spot, while the other wards are a huge distance away, do people lack the common sense that if you start soul ward charge immediately it's ALWAYS going to finish first and you have to wait for the others to finish? The stupidity and toxicity of this community results in a lose-lose scenario in almost any situation. Stupid trolls starting boss fights before everyone gets there ends up spending WAY MORE TIME on the boss fight due to missing out on the DPS because they have the patience of a teaspoon and can't wait 10 seconds for someone with a slow loading screen to catch up. Elitists would rather spend half an hour searching for that perfect 600AP party and disbanding 50 parties, instead of putting up with 1-2 people in the party with 450AP, which they would've finished by the time they even found a party. And don't get me started on Yeti PUGs.... the level of cooperation in Yeti PUGs is like nonexistent.
  23. Anyone know of a item list for merchant wonders that someone made? Don't really care about the garbage that he sells 99% of the time but interested in knowing a complete list of costumes it sells. So far I've seen the headgear from labyrinth twin bosses as well as their ribbon thing accessory, red mask from tomb, mask of scarlet widow in BSH, kitty ears, and that super ugly pink coat. How rare is the cobalt widow wig? That's pretty much the only thing I want but it's never appeared yet.
  24. I can never find a party for this dungeon. I'm already HM8 and 560AP, and haven't even run this place once yet, isn't that ridiculous? I'm not exaggerating, every single LFG only looks for 4-player version or 600AP+. I'm still using Yeti/Labyrinth/BeIdo soul shield at HM8, though not like I have any choice since I never get to farm for any Asura shields. I'm not fortunate enough to be in a friendly clan either, made the mistake of joining one of those elite clans who don't give a shit about new players or helping each other and only cares about AP races. Actually got ridiculed for even asking for help. I'm actually the lowest level/AP player in the entire clan, at HM8 560AP, lmao, not kidding. Trying to find another clan atm. I know the mechanics of this place, so if anyone is running it on a regular basis, be great if I can join in. Iksanun/Poharan as titled mentions. Thanks.
  25. Looking for Family and Master

    Your title suggests you are interested in the realms of BDSM.
