  1. Greetings. As you know, we can change outfits as much as we want without charging, but changing weapon appearance costs gold, and if you have the legendary weapon (Raven, Riftwalk, Aransu etc) it can cost 20g and more. That amount of gold could be nothing for players who have like 10k gold in their pockets, or Premium members that can even pay 1g for that, but think about this: a normal player, who have less gold than those ones, and he must use most of it for upgrading materials, jewels, elements and whatnot, BUT he has a cool outfit and he wants the matching weapon to go with it, so those 20g can mean a lot. We saw a lot of changes in the past years and more, bigger updates are to come in these months, so considering this minor feature is outdated, why not to make the weapon appearance changing free for all? Why can we change outfits for free except the weapons? It's like you get a new outfit, you try it on, you want to use a different weapon skin to go with that, but you change your mind because it costs that much.
  2. To see if crafting the Empyrean was worth it I checked BnSTools, but by few days it didn't work even if it was on marketplace; but even if I had that way to check the price, I simply wanted to know how other players dealt with the ESS and if there were other ways to get them. Now that is out of the way, there's another problem: how many ESS to craft? 9 and 20 require way too many materials and gold, but are 3 ESS enough to get the important upgrades? Are they used only to pass from Storm to Aransu (an example), or are they even needed to upgrade Aransu 1 -> 2 -> ... -> Celestial 1 and more than only 1 per upgrade?
  3. Ok, about the problem I simply deleted my Warden.temp, created a new one and this time I saved every appearance and...SHE LIVES! AND SHE'S BEAUTIFUL AS EVER, EXACTLY AS I WANTED HER! Thank you for your help, guys.
  4. Greetings, warriors. I am a Reaper Destroyer with a Raven stuck at tier 5 for ages (various reasons occurred), and I got as a reward a Riftwalk tier 3 from the orange quest a couple of days ago. Now, I know I should upgrade the Riftwalk because it's cheaper than Raven, and use the Raven for damage, but when you go from Riftwalk -> Raven or Storm Dragon -> Aransu you must use an Empyrean Spirit Stone that is an expensive item like the Premium Transformation Stone, so considering: -you can craft it with Forgekeepers; -you can buy it from marketplace; -I think you can get it as a drop from VT, maybe? --> I don't think I can do this raid quite often though Which one is the way that makes you spend less gold (both in gold coins or materials to use) for it?
  5. About the game future...

    Greetings, warriors! I created this topic to talk about the future of the game, because to me it seems like the game is slowing going downward for various reasons, and I want to at least make people know the consequences of some bad attitude towards the game. I will start saying this: I like the game, the mechanics are really good, the characters are really cool, the maps are really enticing to me; the only thing I am sad about it's the fact I have an old PC and I can't enjoy the graphics of everything, and I wanted to get a decent one to put all settings at max. The story, I enjoyed every single part of it, I always watched all the story cutscenes and even dungeon cutscenes, especially the ones related to the story (mainly the Raid ones). [WARNING, SPOILERS! DON'T READ IF YOU ARE NEW TO THE STORY OR IF YOU DIDN'T REACH THE LAST CHAPTER!] [I wasn't happy about Chol Mugo betraying us in that way, after we were allies against the bad guys; I was really really really pissed off about the fact my students died like that, it was so random, I think they could have survived if Bunyang just said 'I got a bad feeling about this, I think we should run for our dearly lives and never look back.', and instead nope, he jumped down and then Ryu appeared and said 'Sup guys? I'm evil, and you're gonna die, bye.' and Bunyang was annihilated (the body disappeared as if he was a monster); I went into the Talus prison to find Bunya who was completely destroyed by the grief, and she was blaming me for what happened, and I couldn't tell her otherwise, it was something it could have been avoided; but it was only the beginning, because then that Mushin guy came after I don't know how many months and in a matter of seconds even the other two students were killed in front of me and the poor Jinsoyun, I was like 'Wtf man, first Bunyang and now the little Bunah and the spiky guy too? No no no no, that is not acceptable, I'm gonna beat Ryu's mother first and then deal with Ryu in a more private way!' (10.000 stabs)] I am glad they didn't decide to eliminate the little Jinsoyun too (I swear, I would have thrown my Pc out of the window), but after what happened I simply came back to windrest to grief for my students, and when I saw their spirits I was like 'Omg, please tell me they are coming back due to the power of love or something, or I will find that magic talisman to bring them back alive.'...nope, chapter ended, and it even gave me a black outfit that I put for 1 week. Now, for the point of the post, all I wanted to say that in my opinion this game is really good; of course, not all the events I participated to were acceptable, like the Valentine one in Cinderlands (it was a bloody massacre, it was nonsense, like you put normal players with average gear to spin a wheel with ultra instinct players around, who could sneeze you to death), or some decisions regarding items or upgrades were questionable, but I didn't complain about those in the forums except for the Bloody Valentine. However, what I see in the forums is people complaining about EVERYTHING: they don't like the events, they don't like the fact you use tokens for the events, they don't like the rewards for the events; they don't like servers merged and the fact they lost 1 DAY OUT OF 30 DAYS of Premium, and whale players say 'I lost 1 day of premium benefits, I am pissed off, never gonna pay for this again, I want 100.000 gold of compensation and 10 rare items for free or I will leave.'; they don't like this and that etc etc etc. All these posts or comments about in-game stuff is going to destroy it, and one sign is the fact servers merged, and if you think I am exaggerating I can tell you this: you have a standard game, with 10 servers that can host 5000 people each, and the people are distributed randomly in each server; 5 servers have less than 2500 people in there, so they company decides to merge those servers with the other 5, so their capacity go to 10000; with time 4 servers happen to have less than 5000 people (due to various reasons), so the company decides to merge 4 in 1 server of 25000 people; the capacity increases again, this causes more lags problems and overcrowding, but people still keep on leaving the game because of those issues and even if the server can host 25000 people only 10000 actually play it, and there's no merge possible anymore. As you can see, a game can't go on for long time if there's only 1 server that is overcrowded that causes continous lags, and if the people that are playing are still minor than those distributed in more servers; then, add the fact people are not even trying to be understandable about the work developers are doing, and I am not justifying all the things they do, because as I said before some of the events were really awful; but, how do players respond to devs? Vulgar language and insults (i saw them censored on some forum posts); also, I can't believe players are even complaining about an event THAT IS NOT LIVE YET! With that said, I wanted to tell you this: if you really like the game, try to help this game alive with suggestions and constructive arguments, instead of throwing everything into the trash because you are not happy about 1 thing, or because you lost some hours of your precious whale in-game life. Thank you for your attention.
  6. The point is it's not like the character in-game was slightly different from the one on the screen, but all the changes were nonexistent: I made her with silver hair, and the hair was white as default; her eyes were supposed to be blue ocean with a specific iris, and instead they were brown and with normal iris. I don't know how it deleted the custom features, it's possible it happened when I clicked Back at one point to see something about the character and maybe it reverted all that, but if that's so that would be awful, like you go check if it's everything all right and the game decides to delete all the customization progression? That makes no sense, and also it's the first time happening, because I have a Gunner I made into another specific character and he's allright (he's exactly as I created him, and I didn't even need to save the appearance). With that said, if I am in the clear for the voucher, I will delete the Warden.temp and follow your suggestion. Thank you for you reply. PS: I want to be 100% sure, so can somebody confirm me without doubt that if you just created a character with lvl 60 voucher, and you started at HM Training Room but you didn't complete all the quest (for now I only put the HM Training uniform), and it didn't ask you to use the voucher, you still keep it so you can eventually delete that character, free a slot and do it again?
  7. Greetings, warriors. I will tell you a tale about something amazing that was happening, and then the tragedy happened. I had my mind set on this for a while, so today I decided to create a Warden and to use the lvl 60 boost voucher I had in storage for a while; so I created my beautiful Gon, I checked everything at minimum detail, and even if the customization wasn't enough to make her exactly as Rossweisse, the Valkyrie from a certain anime (she's one of my favourite character), she was quite similar and she was beautiful. After I accepted the features, I chose the name and even if I had some issues (the name was already taken, of course), I managed to go forward and finally it was done. I found myself in the Training Room, and it said I needed to learn the basic skills so then I could use the lvl 60 voucher to complete the character boost (she started at lvl 50); but, when I put the Hm Training uniform and I zoomed in to watch her better, I noticed that ALL the custom features I put were nowhere to be seen, she had all the basic features of the preset she was based for...and my world completely crushed, I was so so so hopeless and disappointed (you could find it weird, but I spent 1h 30min trying to make her as similar as possible to my favourite character). I don't know why the custom changes I put in my Warden got reverted back, and I didn't notice until my character was already in the game; I am asking you to help me solve this problem, and I mean: should I delete my Warden now? Could I get an empty slot, re-create a Warden class, put the changes I want and hope it doesn't happen again? Do I risk to lose my lvl 60 boost voucher? For now the Warden.temp is in the training room, and I didn't finish the training, and it still hasn't asked me for the voucher, so should I be in the clear for that or it's already too late? Please, I don't want to lose the voucher, but I don't want to wait for 1.000 years to get the Alteration Voucher necessary to change appearance of my Warden (it's impossible for me, I don't spend NCoin and I have few HM Coin, and I should get 1.000 HM Coin for that voucher). Thank you in advance.
  8. Blade & Soul is officially p2w

    I have to agree to the guy saying this event it only for people with high gear, and that is not forgivable because I thought these events were supposed to help low gear people get better items or reduce the costs of upgrades. Here's what I expected before I knew how you earned the Resurgence Emblems: -I have VT SS, and the Dragon express sells 3 pieces of TT SS --> I need it, because it's the last SS and I can get at least 3 pieces; -I have eptagonal and hexagonal, Dragon ex sells Octagonal --> I need them, it's straight upgrade; I killed 3 stages of Sacred Longuii and the Infernal Lord, but I got Legendary Orb and not Resurgence, then I read the patch notes and I found I had to kill stage 4 Sacred Longuii and Unleashed Infernal Lord, so here's what I did: -I forged the 1-hr weapon, it is equivalent to Celestial rank 3, it should be enough to kill Sacred Longuii --> I put the boss at 86%, and the enrage timer was at 10 secs, so I died; -I checked the weapon, it had 8 slots and I forgot to put my gems in it, so I tried again --> nope, it was not enough, stage 4 is out of league; -I searched for party in cross-server for the Unleashed, but they all asked 1.8k AP (what the hell?), and so I did the normal Lord of Inferno --> I asked the guys in my party if we could do the Unleashed, and they said 'Nah, not worth it, it's a waste of time', I asked 'I have the special weapon, we can do it' and a guy who had an alt-character with TT gear replied 'You need full TT gear to barely do the Unleashed, and the special weapon is useless'. So, here's my conclusions: -there are no items to reduce upgrade costs of weapon or accessories --> what's the point of event? -the possible items to get stronger are loot from strong bosses you can't defeat without endgame (last raid dungeon) gear --> if somebody has lready TT gear, he doesn't need octagonal (he probably has the golden gems) or TT pieces, and also why put a special weapon that doesn't boost your dmg enough for low gear people to get emblems? what's the point of the event? -legendary orbs are only used for x1 Pet Pack, x1 Sacred Vial and you need a lot, Celestial Wings and eptagonal gems (I listed the items I would want) --> I can't get the itmes I need to get stronger, so what's the point of the event? The bloomtime jackpot is RNG items and outfits, so even if I could get octagonal gems and MAYBE some upgrade materials, this event has nothing else for me. Where did they go the events that could get your accessories upgrades/weapon costs reduced? I miss them.
  9. Destroyer: new talents and skills issues.

    3 Piledriver in rapid succession? How is that possible? What combo do you use for that?
  10. Launcher 2 doesn't fit screen

    Same here. I wanted to reduce the size of the launcher home screen, but the bottom part is overlapped by the application bar, so I can't reduce its size on the screen; the updating progress is barely visible, and the Start game button is at 50% visible. In this way is impossible to reduce its size no matter what (you can't use the resize sliders on the bottom edge because of that), so you can only go full screen or having the launcher still occupying 80% of your screen, clearly an eyesore. I hope they will fix this soon.
  11. Destroyer: new talents and skills issues.

    So Scar is useless, the passive with that 4% is meh, and they even removed the ONLY way to strip players from their defensive skills and counters with the Kick? How am I supposed to use this class in PVP seriously? People could cancel Stone Shield by snapping their fingers, the Kick was the easier way to do the same (3rd move Knee was another, but it was hard to use it, and also IMPOSSIBLE vs KFM block, because you had to have insane reactions), and half the changes they made for Des were to no avail, because you will never stack Scars with a defensive skill. It's like if they decided to make finally something good for the Des class, and then they changed their mind and they said 'Nah dude, too boring, let's leave this as it is' and they stopped midway, so right now Des is half developed.
  12. Destroyer: new talents and skills issues.

    I forgot to ask you about this: you can hold Annihilate to deal more damage? I mean I have to keep pressing X for 2 secs for the final hit? I didn't know that, I tried to do as the tooltip said (holding X), but it seemed like it was the same, the UI for the X skill didn't show any feature as what would happen while holding X. Also the talent tree said Annihilation had 3 Stages, but I still don't understand how to get to the final one, unless it's the thing you said.
  13. Destroyer: new talents and skills issues.

    I read that Scar debuff was triggered by Stone Shield, but I use Iron Plating almost immediately everytime I see the red AoE from bosses; also, I kept an eye on the bosses debuffs to see if they got Scar (if what you said was correct, I would have put at least 1 Scar debuff when the boss hit me with the AoE while I was doing Iron Plating), and I think there was no debuff whatsoever, I don't know; in addition, even if it worked somehow the fact that Scar is bounded to a defensive skill like Stone Shield, instead of an attack skill it makes it not viable: if you don't get hit while on Stone Shield (possible in PvP), no Scar, and also most of times that skill will be broken by some KFM skill; if you get hit, you will put 1 or 2 Scar debuffs, so you will not be able to get full stacks. I read again the lvl 60 passive, and it's good, so I have nothing to say about that; but still, even if my RMB cover a large area and it can hit multiple targets 4% CD reduction still seems too low for me, because even if you hit multiple targets the probability is 1 over 100 attacks, and most of times the fight is already over when you reach that count...and what about the quest runs to kill bosses, 1 big target? I disagree. Why would the Red Spin be OP? Sure, you are immune to every CCs, but you are forgetting a simple detail: Des is MELEE. Everything about Des is getting near his target to deal damage, to heal, to recharge focus, EVERYTHING. Ranged classes deal insane burst damage to the Des, and they can also CC him with KD or Airborne (Blue Spin doesn't prevent both, Emberstomp doesn't prevent Airborne), and at least 4 of them have at least 1 KD or Airborne skill, and that is why Red Spin comes at handy for that; also, even if Des is using the Red Spin to prevent those, he still has to get near the target even to recover focus, so the enemy can just keep a distance, wait until Des run out of focus, and then he's done for (this without that soul badge); finally, Red Spin doesn't make the Des immune to damage, and again FM/GUN/SF damage vs Red Spin = Des is DEAD! With that said, thank you for your honest responses, and have a good game.
  14. Greetings, warriors! [For any info I don't remember, or I remember in the wrong way, please Des players with the game open feel free to correct me] I was really excited for the new specialization skill tree and I was really hoping that the Destroyer could be reborn with it (I always considered an average class, both in PVE and PVP); so even if I still haven't used all the talent modifications from both the playstile (I generally use Reaper, aka old Shadow Des for PVE, considering I don't do much PVP), I think I am quite satisfied by the buffs they give and the new functions (I miss Emberstomp granting Willpower, tho), like Galeforce, Eradicate and Wrath boosted damage, Fury time increased and Annihilation boosted damage. But there are some specs about the new skills/talent tree I don't approve so much: -Scar debuff, it's said that Des can apply this debuff to the enemy and if Des uses Annihilation or Stone Shield attack on an enemy with 5 stacks, you deal bonus damage or drain life; the problem is I tried every skills and I didn't see the Scar applied on any enemy at all, so I don't know what are the skills that put that debuff (description doesn't help, I read everything); -Grim Executioner, it's said that Des have a 4% chance to reduce cooldown of Emberstomp and Annihilation as he attacks: except for the Annihilation cooldown reduction that is good (Annihilation deals a lot of damage, it's like a finisher), the Emberstomp is a little disappointg, because even if it deals a good amount of damage, your target must stay in the area of it, and for example n PVP is not gonna get much value (if you grab people and use emberstomp, they will try to use an escape to avoid damage); also, 4% chance is NOTHING, and it would have had the same effectiveness if it had been 1% (compare 4% with 25%, it's 0.04 and 0.25, the difference is of a 10 factor, and it's huge), so if you had attacked like 100 times between many Eradicates, the CD reduction would have happened 1 time...completely useless; -I don't remember what the lvl 60 passive did, but I recall I was very disappointed by that as well. To conclude this, I think during the trailer of the patch I heard that the Force Master passive was a buff on his skills, so he could deal more damage...are the other classes passives more useful than Des' one, with more damage or useful effects? Let me know what you think of the Des and what about the other classes passives/talents/skills, if there are some changes that buffed them or nerfed them.
  15. Greetings, fellow players! I was away from this game for a lot of time, because of business absorbing like 99% of my time, so I couldn't invest any on this game: infact, I missed a lot of events, a lot of stuff, and a lot of cool costumes (Cutting Edge, I saw it, it was very cool, and now it's gone ). With that said, I still don't have much time, but seeing the new stuff and the class specialization I had to come back and try the new content. Now what I wanted to ask was what do I need to get accepted for VT raids, because I already know that I NEED the Mystic Badge that would boost my damage a lot, but unfortunately I did only the Double Asura of VT with my clan, and we weren't even able to complete it, so I never experienced the mechanics of the other 2 bosses on field (I read about them tho); so, seeing how people are posting more for Raven radis AND VT raids, and I am interested in the last one, here's what I have for now: -Raven Axe stage 5; -8 set Ruthless SS (VT SS); -Awakened Ascending Soul; -Hongmoon Pet Aura stage 8; -Eternity Belt stage 8; -Skybreak Ring stage 1; -Oath Necklace stage 7; -Skybreak Earring stage 6; -Divine Dragon Bracelet stage 10; -Hollow Gloves; My class is Destroyer (yes, the infamous one), and some stats are 1108 AP, Crit 35%, Crit Dmg 3505, Acc 117%, Def 4505, Evasion 25%, Block 27%.
