  1. I play EU and NA and never had a issue of completing any content on any of my characters. MSP 1-3 and 1-6.. what you can do is ignore / block that person so you will not see their posts in faction when they try and gather people for them.
  2. Hongmoon Gem Powder for 25 SOLAR?

    Gaming loot boxes that are RNG based, there is a common consensus that is growing among regulators, its coming and video companies like NCSoft will have to adjust, and modify how loot boxes are used in the game. Belgium and several other countries have already had legal battles declaring it, "Loot boxes""For chance" boxes breaks their gaming laws. China has a new law forces gaming companies to law forces Dota, League of Legends, and other games to reveal odds of scoring good loot from "Loot Boxes". Back to using solar energies for powders. there must be another or several avenues we can use to get powders. I need 512 powders to make a gilded square. How do I do that without spending a bunch real money? there is not enough available powders at free or low cost for the average players.
  3. Hongmoon Gem Powder for 25 SOLAR?

    25 solars for one gem powder.. you guys have your head up your.. at the game level those solar energies are best spent on other things. Me thinks this is a developer heeding the calls of the whales in the game who have thousands of energies.. it does not represent the general populace of the game.. and the retarded Merchant of wonders.. its a wonder it spawns anything but total junk.. its rare enough already to only spawn crafting materials and a gold chest that only gives 10 gold for 15 spent. More often than not the Merchant of Wonders is a pile of ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤.
  4. I have run into a problem with graphics I can not solve. I think its a partial occlusion when spells interact with water such is found in Drowning Deeps 2nd boss and MSP Turtle boss 5 & 6. My clan mates suggested I unchecked a few boxes located under the camera tab, including screen shakes. This not only did not help, It created a problem for my graphics card. so now when it occurs the game freezes.. either I am killed or the game times out and closes the client, when that happens its been frozen for longer than 60 seconds.
  5. Is it Time to Cut the Cord?

    I love this game.. for the most part I do not spend in the game like many do. Last event was great for gems.. this one is too. so far I have created 4 gilded squares for almost no cost. The mega whales will tire from being bored.. and leave game.. always happens.. these whales help pave the way for new content.. the sad thing currently is F5 is broken.. market is the heart of this game, if people cant access it.. the game will not survive. When the pay to win F-10 is broken they spare no time to fix it.. I chuckle at the GM's for not fixing this simple thing. The one thing that kills it for most people.. is the lack of attention to inoperative game function. I have one of the fastest desktop's in my clan and I freeze as if my PC is a Duo core. Matters not really where I spend money for my entertainment. The day is coming when gaming oversight rules gaming companies. The graphics bug in MSP bosses 4,5,6 Drowning Deeps 2nd boss and other locations where water collisions is freezing game.. is causing people to leave game permanently.
  6. new dungeon

    the one shot mechanic of the new dungeon.. no warnings nothing.. not going to be popular.. with the general population especially if they cant complete it.. kinda same old Blade and Soul with head up ass when it comes to anyone but the whales.. Which is funny.. I am a lowend whale.. and cant complete it.. I wont waste my time on dumb ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ I cant complete.
  7. https://www.extremetech.com/gaming/289261-the-ftc-will-hold-a-public-loot-box-workshop-on-august-7 The FTC Will Hold a Public Loot Box Workshop on August 7 By Ryan Whitwam on April 9, 2019 at 3:25 pm Comment It’s become depressingly common for video games to implement loot boxes as a monetization scheme, but gamers are increasingly up in arms about it. Last year, the US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) pledged to investigate the use of loot boxes in games, and now we know how it’ll start. On August 7th, the FTC will hold a public workshop on loot boxes, and you’ll be able to watch it live. No one has ever been pleased that loot boxes existed in games, but the uproar was confined to gaming communities until EA messed with Star Wars. The beta test for Star Wars Battlefront II revealed a loot box system that made hero characters incredibly costly to unlock. EA took so much heat online that it had to temporarily remove loot boxes and revamp the in-game economy. Battlefront II isn’t alone — loot boxes are featured in games like Apex Legends, Overwatch, FIFA, and more. Some countries have taken steps to limit the use of loot boxes, which many gamers consider akin to gambling. For example, EA had to remove loot boxes from its FIFA games in Belgium. The FTC is tasked with protecting consumers, so it’s the best hope for those who want to see limits imposed on loot boxes. The August 7 workshop, titled “Inside the Game: Unlocking the Consumer Issues Surrounding Loot Boxes,” will stream live on the FTC website, and you’ll be able to submit comments on the topic to the FTC through October 11. The workshop will cover the history and mechanics behind loot boxes, research examining consumer behavior in the context of loot boxes, and the way these features are marketed to consumers. FTC-DC1 Those who care about the issue of loot boxes won’t find much new information in the workshop, but it could provide hints about the FTC’s intentions. It may also bring the issue to the attention of people who can do something about it. The agency is still open to suggestions on workshop topics through June 7. We can’t know what the outcome of this workshop will be. Perhaps the FTC will continue investigating and decide on common sense rules to protect consumers from the more manipulative aspects of loot boxes. On the other hand, the workshop might be the last we ever hear on the topic from the FTC.
  8. Trove

    I said I was not going to dump allot into Trove this time and I didn't. I opened up slots on 2 characters. One in EU and one here. I spent an additional $20 here on keys. I did manage to get 2 squares in NA and a Gilded triangle in the Eu. I managed to get a sealed Aransu weapon mat for a baby alt.. she will probably never use. the rest was basically mats or crap I will never use. It felt good not dumping $300-400. Instead I bought a 55 inch Samsung 4k @ Costco. I did see many people got squares and gilded squares.. will be interesting to see if these new mega whales continue to play.. or get bored with their new found whaleness and simply get bored and leave, because killing stuff is now too easy.. mechanics do not matter when you can simply whale through the boss fights.
  9. Xingcode banning

    I haven't seen any posts about this.. I am hearing reports of people being banned by the coding Xingcode uses to determine people are hacking, cheating in some form. One person in perticular my clan lead.. This man is the most honest person you will ever meet. What bothers me, some of these people cheating is not in their vocabulary. Their knowledge of game strats and mechs are bar none the best in the game.. and yet they have been singled out by a program for questionable behavior by a computer program. This is so worrisome on so many levels.. not only it does not address the real cheaters. it targets people who have never cheated.. So why is BnS relying so much on a faulty program.. and not even letting people question their ban. It sets a bad precedence. Its targeting new players and Vets.. its wrong.. and should be challenged.. either by a mass signature program, forcing BnS to end the use of Xingcode or force Xingcode to recode this faulty patch. Some may even seek legal grounds to force the game company into proper action. Populations are already critically low in Blade and Soul.. one would figure Blade and Soul can figure out a better method of dealing with the real cheaters, bots, and gold sellers. It basically boils down to a company cutting off its tongue to save face.
  10. my friends quit bns

    I spent in Troves of past.. This Trove.. I refuse to spend anything more.. they have me as a paying patron, the rewards are not enough for me to dump any more into this game. Ive got better things to do with my money. Its a miracle the gaming commissions of the EU don't shut them down fore scamming the general gamer on the gambling chests & Trove. I suspect they will eventually will file some sort of class action lawsuit. but for now I am reserving the right to not pay.
  11. For years we have collected Demon Spirit stones.. and frozen orbs to exchange for various items in Cold Storage. Now we sell these for gold.. have to begin collecting more of these new orbs.. that is all well and good except, I make oils with my orbs.. why not exchange these for the new orbs? I have to exchange my 98 heaven mandate reset stone for mere gold?
  12. F2 Fix

    Its been more than a Month.. since F2 worked.. when will it be fixed?
  13. So I ran into a odd issue.. one Ive probably run into before but never gave it much thought till tonight. So they changed a bunch of items.. and one of those items were the SSP instance items.. the flower and petals. My main character had 1650 plants and over 11500 plant pieces.. Now I have 5 full stacks of the green shards.. 9999 pieces each.. and I can only sell 1000 back to the npc.. so.. I made contact with the Devs by submitting a ticket.. and they suggested I do it here.. Ok.. Here Iam .. Since they increased stack size to 9999 they really need to increase the stack size sold to the npc's.. to 9999.. cuz it only make sense.. it is too increased.. Fiery
  14. Soul event

    My main did not need one from the event.. So I saved it until one day I saw the sealing scroll had gone from 399g to 99g and there was 4 of them.. so I bought them.. what a deal.. I sealed that soul after I upgraded it with oils from this last event, and sent it to my baby alt who was not able to get in on the soul event.
  15. this is how broken this game is

    ut you know.. many people have left the game for the very reason your post is about.. NC will not do anything that does not make them more money. Optimization is not a profit generator. It could be but Investors want immediate payback. Its a fact This game will not likely be on the net for much longer. Newer and better optimized games are in the works 2019 looks promising I run a i7 3.4ghz oclocked to 5.2 ghz (stable) with water cooler. GPU is just a single Nvidia 1080 xtreme gaming 12gb ddr5., 64 Gb Vengeance Memory, Samsung 870 Pro series 1 Tb M.2. Most times I am 35-55ms and 85-110 fps in a raid setting. Blade and Soul runs fine.
  16. this is how broken this game is

    Its not the game its your Potato PC. Solution.. upgrade your PC, get a M.2 main drive I use a water cooler on my CPU and GPU's the only heat producing item in my PC is the Power Supply and DDR 4 - 3733 Memory
  17. gota complain about something. a bit over 1g isnt bad.. Sending jewels costs much more.
  18. Funny.. is this a precurser to what will happen tomorrow? game froze @ apprximate 7pm PST on Zulia. Im in the character selection screen with a grayed out "START" lolz
  19. Producer’s Letter – December 2018 Update

    I have played Blade and Soul for going on 3 years. This will be my 3rd Christmas Trove.. I wont be buying into the Trove this season.. Horrible month for Trove.. Since most of the regulars that keep buying into Trove's.. knows how bad Troves of past have been. hows about Blade and Soul.. give everyone in the game a 100 key present.. Every account gets 100 Trove Keys, special thanks to the Blade and Soul company. This way it wont feel like "Blade and Soul is the Grinch that stole Christmas". I found this one the web about the financial end of NCSoft.. According to gameindustry.biz NCSoft enjoyed a strong Q1 2018 with revenue up by 98 per cent, and income spiking by 585% According to the publisher's latest financial report, sales were up year-on-year $439 million USD. The reality is Blade and Soul was also down both quarter-on-quarter and year-on-year, seeing a 24 per cent drop from $41 million USD in Q1 2017 to $31 million USD in Q1 2018. Korea accounted for the vast majority of revenue with 71 per cent of NCSoft sales coming from the region. By comparison, Europe and the US combined only represented around eight per cent of the publisher's total sales. How low must it go before NCSoft drops Blade and Soul from the EU & NA regions. The reality is profits have fallen to record lows.. Blade and Soul is dieing on the EU and NA servers. They are milking this cow.. with Troves, RNG boxes and consume boxes. They will not promise anything, nor will they build a old wore out game around a new engine if the finances are not there to back the investment. If we had everything the Korean Servers have the likelihood of a failure on the EU and NA servers probably would not be a thing. The Developers and investor's have known for the entire 2018 year BnS is failing. I as a consumer - investor, decline to spend any more of my money on a failing game. Its long over due, the game owes to its consumer base a big Christmas present.
  20. Silver Scale

    Since the patch where Silver scale fragments and Blackstone fragment were increased from 10 to 20.. the farm rate of scale has not increased dungeon reward boxes still give 4 fragments while Blackstone increased to 10 pieces. All accessory upgrades to the highest tiers require Silver scales. The top tier heart is 75 scale. It is going to take me years to farm all these scales.. Increase the reward rates equal to the Blackstone rates and increase the dungeon drop rates, please.
  21. This is a cash shop game.. you notice oils and PTS every week in the store.. I still need more than 150 more to max my soul out and another 300 (insert swearing) pet pods.. and that is my main my 4 other alts.. well they are (insert more swearing here) out of luck because I am not going to buy them.. its beyond stupid. The population on the NA and EU shards have fallen.. continues to fall.. one day it will be like Devilian they just closed the servers.. and I suspect very soon they will close these shards and only be a ONLY Korea game There is no one that really cares what the state of the game is in. Their bottom line is not the players or the game.. its what flows through the store that counts. People paying sums of money for what exactly? basically dots n pixels.. You cant hold what you just bought.. you cant take it and place it in a drawer.. or on your desktop.. so what exactly did you spend that $300.00 on? Entertainment is the common excuse..
  22. Since when was a gaming company listing store stuff as black Friday deals.. More and more this game is pay to win.. NC Soft & Blade and Soul is screwing itself into a hole, least on the Western and EU servers. Blade and Soul will never be Korea Blade and Soul. I refuse to spend another cent on this company when my subscription ends, thats it.. no more.
  23. BnS Buddy after update

    my two horse bits of wisdom.. Funny horse-schit. I dont know why people complain about lag, lag pockets n such.. if the game just is down right too terrible to play or causes you to rage out on your monitor or toss the mouse through the window.. U.. know.. plain n simple.. wtf are you doing with your life.. its just time to find another game.. or get on with your life without dumping half your life.. cash wise and time wise into a pit.. that is really what this game is turning out to be.. a stinking hole in the floor that has no potential.. Look at how Korea is and compare that to the western servers.. cant be compared to.. they.. BnS and NC are milking this cash cow for every penny.. Is it getting any better.. NO.. the overall game play is worse now than it ever been.. every 6-8 weeks they post another cash money pit called Trove.. this enables them, the gaming company to suck more of your money.. for the people who just can not stop gambling for better costumes its the best its ever been.. the reality it isnt.. but their too addicted to this horse-schit game to call it quits. For me its easy.. Im disabled.. and this is my life.. probably will have to bury me with my computer.. Other people what is your excuse?
  24. Ultimate Cuddle Bird.. pet It looks like an Angry Bird. You may want to check the validity of any infringment with Angry Birds.. change its looks.. simularity is really simular.. simular enough to cost a lawsuit.
  25. Gunners

    I am canceling my subscription and I have removed my creedit card information.. until these lame )O&U(*^#ers fix gunners.
