  1. Frost tornado is a necessary skill for FM given the current state of the melee game. Any end game BD, KFM, BM or Warden can stun-kill a fire fm instantly, and with the stupid endless spin classes and stun-deflects and near invincibility of warden and kfm, the tornado skill is the only means in which an FM can break up a constantly defending melee. I used to enjoy fire FM in pvp, but against end game players it's almost useless now. Take away frost tornado and the class may as well be barred from any pvp. FM's were easy prey for BDs for a long time. Now they are not. Deal with it. Be patient, keep your distance, and be prepared to run away like we often had to do.

    Which is better now, undying or warsong?
  3. Game dying

    ^^ I wasn't going to pipe up, but this is exactly right. People leave if they feel they can't keep up. I have been playing almost since release. I don't mind dropping $50 every now and then, but when the games gives people the option to spend thousands to advance at the expense of others who are more skilled but less rich, then there is a huge problem. We have all seen the early posts by NC where they promised to hold true to the spirit of a free game, but they failed miserably. So for people that don't have the money, they look to a myriad of alts and put them through mind-numbing runs to make money just to keep up. Then they wake up one day and say "wow, this sucks. not having fun anymore". Well duh, big surprise. This whole process makes the whole community even more toxic. For example, I like to pvp. There is a certain destro that pretty much always sucked. Can't tell you how much I blew that guy up. Then about 6 months ago the guy must have blown up his credit card. He killed me a few times in a match a few days ago and he sends me the /w "man you are trash" and then quickly logs before I can respond. I looked at his gear, and everything is maxed. This is a guy I never trash talked to in my life. I am experiencing something very similar in an ET raid I am in now. The group has very good dps, but we can't clear boss one. And yet the group talks about cutting people that never make mistakes because their DPS is too low. Their only solution is to either break out the card or talk to gold sellers. Two things broke this game more than anything else. Alts and the ability to trade gold/items between players, and over the top cash spending. In a different vein, IMO the classes are still very unbalanced as well. Every new toon is grossly overpowered when it rolls out. Why is it at all fair that gunners can nearly double if not triple the next highest class dps? If you are going to give a class that much power, than at least make them more vulnerable, but their "X" is the most OP skill in the game. Why is warden so strong in dps, so defensive, hit like ranged, and given SB? Why is KFM given an OP third spec when they already ruled in BG? And for that matter, how is it fair to not roll out third spec for all classes at the same time? As for BG, why can't we make this a more tiered system based on gear? The way it stands now, any new players that want to get into BG just get slaughtered by some whale that maybe hasn't raised his score yet. Surely there is a way to make more fair matches. All the system does now is aggravate the players who are geared that get stuck with a noob, and aggravate the noob that wants to pvp without taking endless ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤. If NC can't fix this, then they should at least make it a solo queue and completely random who you draw.
  4. You banned Force Master from PVP

    dude is absolutely correct. One on one FM's are entirely helpless. Our damage needs to be buffed quite a bit in pvp to compensate for our inability to survive. Honestly, I don't want that. I'd prefer that melee classes get fixed to not have these endless spin/deflect capabilities while at the same time having tremendous damage like warden and bd. Fix wall bang, hell I don't care about that, I don't even like ice FM. Wall bang is stupid to begin with.
  5. Mao Gloves

    what is the drop rate on these? I have killed her 40 times, and she dropped them on very first kill then never again. This seem right?
  6. mess in the classes

    I don't give a lyn-rat's-arse if they give the race warden, so long as they balance this utterly stupid and game breaking class.
  7. Blade and Soul IS NOT PAY TO WIN

    I understand the sentiment of this post completely. But, I would like to add that everything you pay dearly for now is nearly free 6 months later. So you are in fact paying to stay relevant. In MOST games this wouldn't be an intolerable option, but the BnS community is so toxic and selfish that you will literally be excluded from the dungeons where you can actually grind to get good gear if you don't buy your way to the top now. I have a good friend that just recently quit the game, tired of the same old rinse and repeat routine. There just isn't enough fun content to keep the game interesting for people that aren't willing to buy their way to the top. When we both started the game, raids were not a necessary way to obtain the best gear, and it worked great for people who wanted to play casually or buy some items for a boost. But with the difficulty of a raid like TT and trying to find 12 decent people that aren't toxic gear snobs, it's just not feasible, or fun, for the casual player.
  8. What really stings for me is that gunner was a complete fiasco, and at upper levels in pvp still is. They had 3 years in NA to balance classes, and yet they come out with 2 new classes that completely break the pvp scene. It's almost intolerable.
  9. Taking steps back.

    I agree with both you guys, and I am far less diplomatic about it. This game is so poorly managed. They have completely sterilized everything unique about the game, and so many events have been useless. The pvp imbalance is insane, and the new class OP factor just makes me want to chuck my computer against the wall. I have no idea why they feel the need for the constant removal of content and nerfage of the dungeons and mechanics. Every patch they make the game worse instead of better. By the look of f8 the last few days, this game will be lucky to last until the New Year. There is just no sense of fairness. I grind for two years for my gear, and now an alt can get it all in 2 weeks. Don't even get me started on how ridiculous gunner and warden are. The best way to advance in this game is not to play at all, just wait for everything to be given to you. It's such a slap in the face.
  10. Why such high ap/gear req?

    I don't always adhere to high AP reqs, but when I do the answer is really simple---speed. The game has become some mindnumbingly easy, and the gold reduced, such that the only way to make decent money is to tear through as many dungs as I can given then time I have. And lets face it, the lowbies tend to be the ones that take forever to load or become afk nuisances as well.
  11. The dung nerfs are stupid. This game has become nothing more than shooting fish in a barrel.
  12. Unhelpful support

    How exactly did you get hacked? Did you share your information? Did you fall for a scam?
  13. Anyone running in SLI?

    Maybe I was unclear. I do not have an fps problem. With the NA profile which does not enable SLI I hit my refresh rate cap at 71 in normal dungs, around 50 in raid. That's with a single gpu enabled. Certainly nothing to complain about given that my rig is 7 years old. When I enable SLI I drop 20-30 FPS from those scenarios. I can tweak either profile to make SLI work. So I'm not asking about which profile to use or how to load dx9 drivers or concerned about my i7 generation. I simply want to know if anyone has successfully enabled SLI on their system and seen an increase in performance with BNS, and if so, how they did it.
  14. I have an older i7 comp with 2 dated gtx470 in it. This system still runs great for this game. By importing the Korean profile I can make SLI work, but the framerate actually dips 20-30 fps as opposed to using the install profile which doesn't enable SLI by default. I am wondering if anyone else has noticed this, and whether running in SLI helps FPS in 12-man situations despite the drop in normal scenarios. At this point I am wondering if there is any reason at all to run BNS in SLI. I can clearly see the gpu load being shared between the two card, I am just not noticing the benefit. Anyone else got a take on this?
