  1. Blade & Soul is officially p2w

    Ok so you say he's either a whale or a "no lifer who plays 20 hours a day and feeds his main through 10 alts". Perhaps you think I wanted to insult him, but that was not my intention. I do not use "whale" as a derogatory term. I am just using it to refer to someone who spends a lot of money on the game. If someone hasn't learned to play their character properly yet they have the gear to kill the boss, then yes getting better would lead to them killing it. However, you are ignoring a VERY IMPORTANT piece of information: the amount of DPS needed to kill it. It is something the vast majority of non-whale players are not able to do. Combine this with the fact that this event didn't fall out of the sky, it was DESIGNED like this. Now tell me which conclusion comes to mind? Do you still see all the greys? Mate, you are telling me this is not a "whale appreciation event" when the absolute minimum DPS you need to kill the boss is twice what's needed to complete the CURRENT ENDGAME RAID? Your whole argument is "but if you spend 20 hours a day on 10 alts, you can get the gear to do the event as well". Which kind of players do you think the devs had in mind when they designed the event: the "no lifers" or the whales? In that case, I agree, there are indeed people who could clear it but are doing something wrong. As for a solution to this, what you said can be a good alternative. The devs should have done a better job at balancing the rewards and requirements for the event. It SHOULD be hard to get octagonal gems, but this gear-gating is just way too strict. I think the solution Keroppi suggested in one of his videos was also pretty good: just give people rewards based on how much DPS they did in those 3 minutes. Adjust the costs of the gems as well to compensate for the tokens being easier to get and there you go, a way better balanced event than what we got.

    There is little to nothing to get good at. The boss itself cannot kill you or cause any significant drop in your DPS as its rotation is REALLY simple. The boss does not kill you, the enrage timer does. The main grievance that I have with this event is that there is nothing you can do to beat that turtle (or the burning mausoleum boss, for that matter) other than whale on your soul or use a bunch of imperial sojus if you're REALLY close to beating it. And how do you get the imperial sojus you ask....oh that's right: RNG box. No, this event cannot be done by the "git gud group" as no matter how well you play, you cannot outplay the enrage timer. I posted a video of me clearing it earlier in the thread. Look at it and tell me that it's a hard boss mechanically. It's pretty much a glorified general moyun for you to DPS parse on. Please stop saying that you can just "get good" for this event. It's not skill-dependent, it's gear-dependent.

    Maxed soul and heart. Thanks for proving the point that this event is for whales only.

    Upload a picture/video with your character's gear, the DPS meter and the turtle stage 4 cleared or this never happened.
  5. Since u guys keep nerfing ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

    Guess how I know you have no idea what BD actually does... If a BD keeps spinning it literally only has deflect up 50% of the time. For every one second of spin, the first 0.5s is a parry. Melee class aerial is really strong :^) It's not like ranged classes can just PvE you down in your own aerial :^) Oh wait... And what skills are those exactly? It definitely got buffed with awakening concerning arena, but in BG the shields on Z are not resetable anymore and now the V iframe got nerfed hard. They nerfed it in BG for no reason. It seems like you should follow your own advice.

    Did you even watch my video, man? I HAVE THE EVENT WEAPON EQUIPPED. Besides, the event weapon only adds like 100k DPS compared to my aransu9 weapon. It's not an ET3 weapon! You obviously have no idea what you're talking about and it feels like I'm arguing with a child. Have a good day.
  7. Blade & Soul is officially p2w

    You need at least 1.28 million dps to kill stage 4. This is double what you need for TT boss 4. Just watch as I hit the enrage timer... Do you think this is normal for an EVENT boss? I cannot clear it with my aransu9 even tho I have TT accessories and soul shields and I barely clear with the 1h event weapon with buffs. It would have been OK if you only needed 500-600k dps to kill it as that's what you need for TT4, but 1.28 million is just ridiculous. Making a hard boss means having HARD MECHANICS (burning mausoleum got it right with the one shot kills), not putting an absolutely ridiculous enrage timer on the bosses.
  8. Both guardian tempest and whirling scourge are unresetable, now the V iframe gets nerfed as well. Who thought it was such a good idea to nerf the only infinite-hit iframe that BD still has left? Now you just have to enjoy getting PVEd by ranged classes I guess since your 3-hit shields don't even last 1s when some ranged dude spams stuff at you from 14m. That three cast V iframe was such a good counter to gunners with max soul just using their 5 hit iframe and trying to pve you down while ignoring parry. Now you just have to try to run away from the class with the highest mobility in the game, I suppose. BD definitely is the class that needed to get nerfed, it's not like there's another class with a sword that's completely busted right now. Please hire some new people to take care of the balance.
  9. Thanks

    They did say the boss is hard, and I'm completely OK with this. Hard mechanics and boss rotations can be overcome with practice and they are fun. But the gear requirements are plain stupid.
  10. Thanks

    To be fair, I didn't use any buffs. But since it only seems to drop 1 token then it's probably not worth anyway. Still the event weapon is insanely underwhelming.
  11. Thanks

    This event is so bad. How on earth do you make an event with WAY higher gear requirements than the current endgame raid? I have full TT accessories and soul shields and I cannot kill the stage 4 turtle because I *only* do 1 million dps to it with aransu9. Didn't check how much I did with the event weapon, but as a reference I parse 1.15million on moyun with my aransu9 weapon, and with the EPIC STRONG event weapon I do 1.26million. Insane +110k dps right there! Just how is this not enough dps for an EVENT? When I heard the bosses were hard, I expected them to have some hard mechanics, something like M'ao or Hong when they came out, but it turns out the "hard" part of the event is just DPS-racing. How can people even enjoy this? It's literally copy-paste tomb of exiles with 1,8 billion HP and F12 turtle with a REALLY short enrage timer and more HP.
  12. RNG fix

    This is stupid. Comparing buying RNG boxes in games to alcohol and drugs which are actual substances that alter how your brain works. This is a wrong course. You cannot and should not regulate stupidity away. If some people decide, by their own free will, to waste all their money on RNG pixels in some game, then they should be free to do it. They should be free to suffer the consequences as well. Also, what about the people who are actually responsible and don't waste all their money on RNG stuff? You are not letting them buy these things, just because some other person may be irresponsible. This is honestly like banning fast-food because some people cannot control themselves and become morbidly obese. Would you really like to live in the kind of world where your freedoms are denied because some irresponsible people can bring harm upon themselves if they weren't denied these freedoms? The one thing I do agree with from your post is that the quality of games has indeed been declining, partly because of greedy companies. However, the solution to this MUST NOT imply restricting people's choices. For instance, I would not be opposed to higher taxes on RNG boxes or some other ways of them being discouraged, so game developers still have the incentive to find better ways of making a profit while players don't have a choice taken away from them by a third party such as the government.
  13. @Estellia +1 to this tho. If you like a class, just play it no matter what anyone else says. After all, it's you playing that class, not anyone else. Maybe some people will flame you sometimes in PvP, but if you're having fun it doesn't really matter. You're playing a game and you're supposed to have fun so play whichever class you like.
  14. No it is not lower-tier at all. Just look at the EU 1v1 Summoner ladder, then tell me it's low-tier. There are 15 Summoners in 1900+, compared to 16 Wardens in 1900+ atm. It has insane aerial damage with an unescapeable launch if done right, can PvE down spin classes, target abuse with the cat, the cat can CC opponents even when the summoner is CCd. It's absolutely not lower-tier. Blade Dancer is in a worse spot than Summoner is atm in PvP. As a quick comparison, there are 2 BD characters in 1900+ 1v1 rating right now. People are complaining about the Summoner class having some broken aspects, not about the race. It's the same reason people are complaining about Warden.
  15. Genuine question about wind summoners in arena

    Upon looking into it further, it appears you are correct. My bad then, so that point is wrong. Sure, the old Lunge with separate stuns on the 2nd and 4th hit would have been more useful if the first one hit into an iframe. However, it is a pvp buff as the cat didn't stun you on the very first hit before, so you did have a slightly larger window of time to react. The Lunge change definitely plays a role in the unescapeable aerial launch though. The Lunge -> V aerial launch is much faster, due to Lunge stunning on the first hit and the increaed V cast speed.
