  1. When did B&S get so lame?

    Hey all! So... There isn't an actual feedback page that I can find and support "agent" I ended up getting stuck with said "Forums" - Does anyone know if there's actually a feedback link that goes to the companies "feature enhancement requests" bucket that never gets read and eventually bounces due to volume of unread suggestions, or is it just a public forum where everyone can bash on the game and one another because that's what people do on the web. Thoughts?
  2. Producer’s Letter – December 2018 Update

    I'm going to be patient and see what kind of... Well... Changes... Come to KFM. I've heard and seen a lot - All of it bad. Hopefully NCWest is able to successfully help as I know they're going to try. *crosses fingers and toes*
  3. Well then.

    Yay 9/12/18 patch - Let's make KFMs even more endangered. Lol Is there really a point in adding 1 second to Q&E? Is it due to the 6v6 gear-checkers, which result in a punishment to PvE'ers? Now might anyone actually understand this bit: "Shadow Dance and Footwork now resist damage and status effects for 0.6 seconds as well as for 1 second after use, up to maximum of 5 times." The initial 0.6 seems more like a text update than the generic "User resists damage and status effects." in the current tree, or am I missing something? Thanks!
  4. Master Hong

    Hello Hate, Thank you for the input! ^_^ A week after the release, range isn't an issue and I've yet to be juked. I'm leaning towards a fix or at the very least a "tweak".
  5. Master Hong

    Hey y'all, I don't know how many of you have giving this a go yet. But those who have, do y'all have the same bugs of the inconsistent sweeps (left-right), the instant re-adjustments of the sweep as well as when the start of the fight, Hone does move two instead of the proper move one. How about the horrid flip around if you're too close when Hong does the AOE pull in? If so, I hope the devs don't get lazy and wait until the next major update to fix this. So if we get enough people seeing this. Then they'll have the numbers needed to get this over for (what I hope is) adequate review and resolution.
  6. Soul Fighters Gameplay

    Julia raid might have a "Need SF" because of our heal. That's about it. Otherwise you won't see a "Need SF" - Ever... Summoners can do a larger heal now, with zero per-requisuites (like we need 3 stacks of Golden Dragon). Now the SF is a lot of fun to play in PvE / Raiding and you mainly do KFM since it's about 80-90% of your damage. I only do ranged damage when dodging a mechanic and end up in Ele stance, use a few burst and go back to KFM. In PvP, you're forced to go frost for the rang poking and you play 80% of the time in PvP as a FM with only a quarter of the skills. And PvP frost KFM stance is severely weakened and not really viable. Earth build in KFM stance for PvP, is great, but the ranged portion is only good against BM's and Locks 'cause your Ripple Punch penetrates their perma-blocking. I've gotten a KFM up to HM 9 and seriously SERIOUSLY have been thinking of making the switch. And I've been main'ing the SF since it came out in NA. SF's are too undesired/not understood (whole different can of worms there) and the least played and least fun in PvP anymore. For PvE, we're kind of like a "cancer" class in that we hold RMB > 2 > F > F > Repeat. Lol
  7. I'm at a sort of mental block myself with SF PvP. But to me, since the SF nerf *sarcastically air quotes* (re-work), we PvP 80% of the time as ranged. 20% as KFM stance and only if the opponent is at like 30% HP or lower. Which I find amusing since KFM stance does 80% more damage than our Elemental Stance. *snort* I struggle with digesting that I need to play like a FM, but with a quarter of the spells and abilities where, KFM stance does a lot more, but is way more easily countered by all classes.
  8. Returning SF

    Bluemoon badge (Fury Tokens) can't be earned, as far as I know. You can either buy the 70 from the market at about 18g a pop or buy 35 of them at 18g a pop and farm peaches from Celestial Basin or was it the pearl things that are annoying to gather... Something like that. Also you can combine the Bluemoon badge with the Magnum badge for the new legendary badge which I think will be the most beneficial badge over-all. Which is oriented towards ice. Didn't see an earth badge worth a whole lot. But Earth build is still kinda fun to play and the Primal Force badge is good since it allows you to more easily get 3 stacks of golden dragon while in earth build. - Edit: The Primal Force badge and Holy Fire (1,000 Earth Attack bonus) combo sounds like it'd be smexay AF. Seeing as it's DURING golden dragon. Doesn't state it has to be 1, 2 or 3 stacks and it doesn't say "first king fist". So all three rattled off should each pop about 1k earth bonus dmg. I'll have to test that to see for myself.
  9. The "Soul"

    Hey y'all! So... I've been wondering (without number crunching and throwing in RNG probabilities); would the Transcendence Soul or Cosmic Soul be better? I'm sort of leaning towards Cosmic, at least once you get to Awakened seeing as there's a 10% elemental damage boost for 5 seconds, every 3 seconds (with that 8 second CD). And seeing as our Soul Shields revolved around Frost Vortex (if frost build), that ele boos would be nice. Granted... Transcendence Soul pairs up with the Dragonfury (Focus Chi / 'Z') and our burst. I also see Cosmic being kinda handy when farming say Celestial Basin (though... now not so much) for the random trash-mob burst to move on to the next one. Thoughts?
  10. Evolved Stones

    I've been pondering on other ways that could be viable in gathering Evolved Stones - Granted they're super limited now, but let's say NCSoft get's enough feedback and it's viable and not just over-the-top easy farming ideas. For example, right now, PvP is basically all but dead. The rewards are... inconsequential to leveling a toon. What if they implemented a reward update. Similar to what they were doing with Soul Stones. Where, if you are gold rank (or can be done by Gold 1600's, 1700's, etc.) you get "X" number of Evolved Stones. And even make the paper acquired through 6v6 or Zen Beans. This way PvP will go Kaboom with people after Zen Beans to get the paper and acquire more Zen Beans to buy Evolved stones. 'Cause we all know them new souls gonna cost us a soul. Lmao! Might as well be via PvP! I'd also speculate the "bot" problem could be resolved by making the Gold rank requirement like 1650 or so. We all know bots ain't gone get past silver outside of 3v3's And even then; low 1600's for them gold bots. Has anyone else had similar thoughts/ideas?
  11. SF is weak or am i stupid?

    For PvE, even before the update and even having all 8 of BT bopaes, the MSP bopaes were better for DPS and NOT spamming dragonfist. RMB > Dragon fist. Now post patch, that's completely different. Dragonfist lasts longer and hits WAY harder. SO i get them changing that around and overall I've noticed a massive DPS spike. Where I was doing 73 k, I do about 101k steady. Though, I'm extremely tempted to re-roll since the PvP changes and skill re-vamps. Not only did the SF get hit with the PvP nerf-bat so hard it made Satan cry. Every class can counter anything we do. We used to stomp BM's a majority of the time. We're lucky if ground ripple gets off (the crappy stun version since daze was stupidly removed). And our defense break is useless (like before) and we can't stun combo like we used to. Though other classes still can / have had their stun chains improved upon (BM as an example). So, playing B&S for just PvE - Works for some, doesn't work for me. I may re-roll KFM as main since they do pretty decently in both area's. But the SF is no longer viable in PvP. At least from what I've seen in the last few days.
  12. SF's future

    Anyone thinking about re-rolling since the changes? I've noticed PvE having a dps boost, but all other aspects, primarily PvP, took a massive nose dive.
  13. PvP Nerf-Bat

    Is it just me, or did every class acquire an instant counter to our movement and attacks and the classes with a perma block, the only thing that works really is ground-ripple. Which that there sorta is lame w/o daze. Is it worth staying a SF anymore? Re-roll to KFM perhaps?
  14. Finally submitted a ticket to NCSoft. Let's see how "helpful" they can be as this shouldn't have even been an issue with geographic locations MONTHS a head of NA in content.
  15. So I was wrong... This is getting ridiculous. C'mon B&S NA! I did 5 login and logout attempts after last nights "fix". Over night (period of 9 hours), it's gone back to being defective. Did another file repair (just as that) and still failed. I'm not even sure where to begin from here. I know it's not my computer or software. It's BnS content/bin folders. By the way; @OctaviaChan we're looking in Windows Explorer for the various folders. Your software/hardware looks fine.
