  1. Gem Transmuting Question

    There does seem to be something odd about the gems that the transmute system produces. I posted above that as long as you had transmuted the gem then you should be able to use it in further transmutes. However, I noticed yesterday that this is not the case at all. I purchased a ton of triangular gem fragments on the marketplace and used them to make square square gem chests. Some of those square gems would not work when I tried to use them to transmute the green pentagonal gem chests. At first I thought it might be that gems with certain abilities were no good because all of the critical rubies I made were no good, just the stun and damage rubies. But then I saw that I had made a critical sapphire that worked just fine. So, after reading this thread and going back to the system and trying with a lot of fragments it seems that for whatever reason when you make a gem chest there is a chance that the gem you will get as a result cannot be used in further transmutes despite it being labeled 'bind on equip' just like the ones that work properly. Some of the faulty gems produced by the chests are labeled 'unable to sell on market...' but a few were not. This must be a bug as nothing in the text describing this system says that the gem you will end up with might not be able to be used for further transmutations. I will look at the bug report thread and if nothing has be posted already, I'll post about this issue there. NC moderators, though should perhaps take note of this if you guys don't already know or if it is working as it should then clarify that for us. I only tested with triangular gem fragments -> square gem chests and having to salvage some of the resulting squares was not that bad but if this happens with a much higher level gem which has taken lots of materials to produce, it will be a much worse situation to have to deal with.

    Here is a miracle. Yesterday someone on my server, Yunwa, linked the Blackwrym chest into faction chat. A few moments later they linked Starling which elicited some congratulatory whoops from other members of chat. Since that event happened I saw two calls for players to kill the dragon. Which just goes to show the interest in killing him is still there at least on some servers.
  3. Advice regarding Hongmoon Gems from Daily Dash Event

    Thanks for all the advice everyone. Yesterday after I posted this, one of my daily dash rolls hit a premium spot and RNGJesus smiled on me as I got advance to start and a third token. So I was able to get a second Ruby instead of a Peridot. This solves my problem in the best way since I can use it on the second character and then mail it to the first when I get a third Ruby. @Trix and @Unicorn both rightly point to the huge cost of upgrading these gems due to the cost of Radiant Energy and the event bound nature of Mysterious Crystals. From what I have heard nobody has seen the Kari Lord drop these crystals or if he has it is not often at all. @K4t has a less than optimal situation due to the fact that the Hongmoon gems are not all account bound across the board. The gem upgrade path could be a solid way for every player to follow when getting their characters to max gear and it is a shame that it's such an obstacle for f2p players and players who can't afford to spend large amounts. It would be good if the developers would consider making this path more accessible to everyone and at the least they should consider making all the Hongmoon gems account bound. It seems that the Hongmoon gem upgrade transmutations have a 100% success rate.

    The system should be smart enough to detect if the exact same text has been used as a chat message several times in a row. This would keep bots from spewing out the same thing in channel every 2 seconds.
  5. Welcome Back! – Player Tips to Getting Back In

    The first tip i would give would be that at first make one character and put everything into making that character as strong as possible. Things go much slower if you are dividing your resources between two or more characters. Use the second slot for a crafting character to support your main. If one takes Radiant Ring/Forge Keepers then have the other take Merry Potters/Soul Cauldron, as one character is not enough to craft effectively without spending lots of gold. But give all the event rewards, daily dash items to your main and focus all your attention on it until reaching level 50 and acquiring reasonably good end-game gear. Then it will be much easier to level your second character.
  6. Mysterious crystals are for whales?

    I have between 10-15 mysterious crystals (i forget exactly how many). One of them I got from the coralite event, the others all came from a stack of Rng boxes I bought. Events where you have to pay seem to be the source of these things. Hongmoon gems only come from events, and these crystals are meant to be used to upgrade the gems. It seems they have tied having upgraded gems to events where the more you spend the better chance you will have.
  7. Starling Outfit for sale

    Last night I took a close look at the outfit on my character in F3. It truly is one of the best looking outfits this game has to offer. It looks much nicer than 99% of the cash shop costumes. It is such a shame that players like myself who joined the game this past summer have such a very small chance, if any at all, to get it.
  8. I have two characters, and I plan to play both of them as much as I can. During the Daily Dash event I was able to get the Hongmoon Ruby and the Hongmoon Peridot for one character. Now at the end I have two tokens unused and can get another Hongmoon Peridot. These (and one Hongmoon Diamond 25ap) are the only Hongmoon gems I have collected so far. I would like both characters to have good gems so I at first I was thinking to just give the Peridot to the character with no Hongmoon gems. On the other hand, if I give the Peridot to the character who already has one, then I would only have to acquire one more at a later event for that character to be able to upgrade it. If you were me what would you do, give the gem to the character who does not have it or give it to the character who does so that it can be upgraded when another becomes available.
  9. Gem Transmuting Question

    That does seem to be the case. If the gem for whatever reason, like having got it as a quest reward maybe, is marked 'Unable to trade/sell: marketplace' then it's no good for transmutation. As far as I know if you use the tab to make your squares then you should be able to transmute with them. Squares from other sources work as long as they are marked 'Bind on Equip'.
  10. Your thoughts on the most efficient SF key bindings

    I can totally see the logic of binding F to the mouse.
  11. Starling Outfit for sale

    I know this thread is about the outfit but an important issue that comes up when talking about getting the outfit is Blackwrym himself. It seems that an issue is that not enough players are able to, or think it's worth it to, farm Blackwrym. I would love to farm that dragon not only for the outfit but the gem as well. It would be nice if changes were made so that it becomes attractive for players to farm him. The two things that seem to be the issue are that his HP is too high or higher than before and that his drop rates are too low. So it would be great if perhaps his HP could be lowered, like they did with Yeti and for his drop rates to be increased. Another thing that would attract more players to farm Blackwyrm would be if he dropped some other items that players need, like mysterious crystals and other harder to get crafting materials.
  12. Your thoughts on the most efficient SF key bindings

    I also have gotten really used to the key layout and can't think of any way to remap which might be helpful. You are probably correct about the 2-RMB switch he did to make it more like the KFM. I was just curious if anyone had tried doing this sort of thing and how it worked out if they did.
  13. Stream for 26th October - Recap

    I suppose requiring primers for soul shield infusion will be good for people who have taken Soul Wardens as a crafting guild. Will the value of primers on the marketplace go up? If so this will give Soul Warden players some income from crafting them. In the past I tried putting a few crit primers on the marketplace but they really didn't sell.
  14. Why is rng so bad

    Thing is, you did not design this game Team Bloodlust did. They designed it to require the amount of time that they felt players should put into it in order to get rewards from it. As a player you can either accept the requirements which the game's designers chose to implement or you can choose not to play it. This is really very simple. If you do not think the game is entitled to the amount of time it takes to play then you should not give it your time. The game is not garbage at all. Many people like this game and enjoy playing it. If you are not one of them why do you continue to inject it's forums with toxic post after toxic post. Based on your posts it is a mystery why you are even still playing this game and posting about it. If you have such great problems with BnS why not just quit and leave it to the people who would like to play it and enjoy it instead of posting demands that the game developers change their creation so that it fits your idea of what their game should be like. Perhaps you should design and build a game based on your vision of all these things you want. It could be easy to play, require no effort or time at all to get the best rewards, whatever you would want it to be. It could be a game people can play while they do other more important things, so as not to waste precious time on it. Really anything you can imagine you can build if you like. Then you could ignore the toxic players who show up on your game's forums when they post manifestos about how you should change your game to match their ideas of what is best for it.
  15. SSP Changes

    I think this change will be really bad for me. My Sf is just about to hit lvl 50 and I am looking to upgrade my weapon past True Profane. As a new level 50 my AP will be below what it needs to be to be accepted by people in 6v6 to start with almost for sure. Actually I am worried about how hard it will be to even find groups to run the dungeon content I need to run as a new 50 (but that is another matter). Now my options for getting moonstones have really been narrowed down it seems. My schedule is such that I play BnS really late at night, I almost always log on after midnight. I tend to be a solo player and keep to myself a lot when I do play. On top of that, starting this weekend I will be participating in the Revelation Online CBT which means I am going to have to divide the time I have between that game and Blade & Soul. I wonder if any thought was given about how this narrow time frame for SSP (it will be deserted completely now for five days of the week??) affects players who cannot afford to modify their schedules to accommodate this? I would rather be the one to chose when I farm SSP and not have the game decide that for me. As far as 6v6 and PvP in general goes, I had planned to do some but only occasionally. Now I feel like I will have to do 6v6 if I want to get my gear upgraded sometime before this century ends. Watching the live stream I was thinking that the patch would bring a lot of improvements to the game, when they dropped this bomb my jaw hit the floor. RIP SSP, at least for me I guess.
