  1. The Four Mythological Guardians and Blade and Soul

    Let's say it is, on a cliché point of view. (would say "giants" for Gons) Also, I think it tells you about the guardian thing on the char. creation screen, tho they only describes Gon as "descendants of the dragons", while Yun inherited of the "phoenix" but I guess it's what the Vermillion Bird is, otherwise there's a slight detail change in the lore. Kirin is the term they're using for the Lyn.
  2. Heaven’s Mandate & Cold Storage Antique Items

    What really hurts the community is how the patch begun from absolutely awesome : awakening, unity system, soul event, lv60 voucher ... To absolutely atrocious : "misinformation" of antique items with no compensation for them, talisman upgrade prices off the charts, gold rewards decreased by HALF, different dyad upgrade system. The least we can get for the antiques is a special transmute recipe -> 1 freezing orb + 1 black rose feather = 1 frozen feather. Also 1 orb of ascension for every 10 white orbs owned + 5 lesser demon spirit stones for every 10 demon spirit stones owned too. We still lose something "as intended" but at least the people still have their efforts somehow paying off... ._.'
  3. Shadow Warlock, Soul Badge and Mystic Badge

    While I agree right now, I have been giving it the doubt because of awakening. Limitless is still going to be proc'd with Soul Shackle, however it's going to be fixed to snare/root due to the whole skill specialisation thing. Not only I have to mention snare is a potential wipe during certain raids, but also this spec has a longer cooldown than the old move 2. It's going to be tested out but I'm slightly toward using Legacy for "Shadow" Warlock after awakening is being patched here. Doesn't really matter anyway as our new fused badge shall be the newest one released today along with Primal Force.
  4. Nerf Dg mech for TSM DST BC

    Except there are mechs that you can simply NOT nerf. Dreamsong Theater is a good example, boss 1 is simply not possible to nerf, the only thing I could see to "help" is making the circle spawns in a certain order. (first circle always at 12'o clock f.e.) Shadowmoor as well, you would have to remove the curse system entirely to make it impossible to wipe or it wouldn't make sense. You could remove some cc from the boss' attacks + failing at stun/kd the boss when he grabs during third curse mark wouldn't be that "punishing" as hurling it away.. however nerfing the curse would be impossible. Brood Chamber boss 1 could like heal by x% instead of wiping after 2 orbs absorbed. As said before, start by puting some actual help in F12. They used to do it before, so why is this not a thing anymore ?
  5. My 2 cents about how to save BNS

    Probably the best reason ever.
  6. Nerf Dg mech for TSM DST BC

    Normal mode should still wipe "important" mechanics.
  7. 1) and 3) is pretty much the same, the point of keeping them is to upgrade to square dyads, just saying. There's also nothing wrong with triangle dyads having their value diminished if it's not the top tier of the gems any longer. Only problem I see is why it is not the same recipe as Korea.
  8. bUt I sPeNt 444 pts fOr bAlEfUl rAzOr pls refund xd Just a reminder : if people didn't fuse, they'd most likely had to trove/rng boxes XX(X) € for gilded/dyads because that's literally the only other way to gather gems aside from transmutation. The 370 pet pods requirement for maxed out Talisman is much more worrying, and I knew the moment I've seen the "64 loss", people would still complain, lmfao.
  9. Hello, for a start, thanks for this said stream, it was the first stream of the team and I think it was good enough. The "new" team seems promising in my opinion ! Thus said I have a few questions concerning the update. 1. Will the patch notes be available in a previous date than Tuesday 12th seeing the current conditions ? Since the stream has been unable to cover all the update due to short time. 2. I suppose the talisman item has upgrades considering that it's a potential good PvP Battleground item. (HP/Def boost ?) However I still think 370 pet packs for the item is still a bit overkill, the pet aura already takes 550+ to max. Will you consider a reduction or is there, at least, an upgrade point where it's totally free from pet packs ? For example, doesn't cost anything but simple mats up to second tier. Otherwise I think people will not be very happy with such a controversial item upgrade, which is a shame seeing how the rest of the update is probably in a pretty positive spot in terms of players opinion. (awakening, non-"p2w" collection system, gems transmutation) 3. Talking about gems transmutation, will there be compensation for current triangular dyads ? I've heard rumours that yes now, while reading a few things before seemt to tell me that there will not really be any, so I'm kinda confused right now. 4. The Black Rose feathers and Freezing orbs are going to be antique'd as well with the upcoming patch, but for which items ? I think it's the only one still unknown to us. (DS stone becoming lesser DS stone and White Orb being Orb of Ascension) 5. What will be the point of the different divine grace stones ? (purple, blue, yellow, etc..) Thanks for answers if my questions are picked somehow o/
  10. Farewell Blade & Soul!

    @Showta That's the reason why it got too far. I am not going in denial about multiple "witnesses" saying that Bethany did a poor job as a Community Manager but as you said, the limit has been crossed when we've got to the namecalling. And my point was that being an employee of NC Soft itself, Bethany doubtly was in a constant sexist fight or else things would have been heavy already. I'm not talking about a typical kid throwing an insult every stream, but more of a ruthless spam of sexism thrown at her, I haven't seen this during all the time I've played the game. Doesn't mean this kind of behavior has to be cautioned, I am just telling people how some girls have it even harder than Bethany. (some probably even commited suicide due to that kind of harassement) As I said previously, that sailor-moon based meme was fine, then there was the few others that was just adding fuel into the fire. Her remark about "not missing reddit" at all was taken furiously by people overall, mostly because about 'ego' I suppose but some really felt anger due to the relation NC soft - reddit which is, let's not lie, absolutely poor. Now I know 'official' stuff should be on forums but checking reddit once in a while isn't so bad, especially since the community is alas more active there than on the forums. Right now to be honest, it's just.. done. Bethany left, and wishes for her luck and success wherever she goes work next. She doesn't look like a bad person and as I said on my first comment, there can be multiple reasons for what I felt through her, a person seemingly not enjoying the game during the streams. (which doesn't mean was her own fault) Dont get me started on the community, I just need to check faction chat + F8 to know what's going on. I'm not giving a point to Bethany for her job as CM, but I'm not giving a point either to the community on how most handled that news of her quitting the CM job. But now it's better if people would focus on what's left with a response from NC Soft itself on how the Blade and Soul staff is going because at the moment losing the whole "streaming crew" just makes people wonder about the future of this game, which is understandable. Peace o/
  11. Farewell Blade & Soul!

    I don't know, what I mostly see on the few times I check the chat is the usual "p2w". It's streaming, they talk, I only need to listen and watch the screen, not some wannabe chat. I know it's CM 's job to check it out to answer potential questions but when the chat doesn't seems to have an actual moderation or whatsover, this isn't really doable nor worth the effort, in my opinion. It's also about toughing up. I know sh*t comments isn't the nicest, I have been victim of that as well but turning around this pot at this point isn't making things going forward as well. I also know Reddit was a ***** due to that news, she left so just drop it off already. Some made funny "memes" (the sailormoon based one didn't bother me much) but some other did took things too far. Now let's not really always put the blame on the sexist comments shall we ? Not that I don't condemn them, but as a CM of a game company, you can be sure she was much more safe than any random female players which can potentially have it way worse. Here's an exemple : https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC8xWkT72t-NV3-DOB9gKJeQ While some others female have it less frustrating as they are streamers with good relation toward certain people of the game company.
  12. Farewell Blade & Soul!

    I've seen the reddit being a ****** of emotions so I'll post there. I am not going to lie, that all the experiences I had watching Liinxy on the different preview streams still let me a little poor taste in my mouth. I'm only going to say one thing about it : it just didn't feel like Liinxy actually enjoyed the streaming that much, always had a feeling of "I'm not liking the game so much" coming from her. I don't know it felt, "forced" ? There can be multiple reasons, so it's not really the problem, it is just what it is. This isn't really an opinion, this is simply a feeling, I might be wrong after all. Thus said, thanks for going through these years with us all o/ Good luck for your future (gaming ?) projects :3
  13. It's actually true but what this person doesn't say is that these people are most likely players that started the game at release, without giving it up in the long way. I myself haven't spend a cent on this game, and currently I'm at : Awk. Cosmic 2 soul Aransu 6 Both awakened BT accs Awakened VT neck Virtuous heart 1 Divinity brac s10 Fused Soul Badge (Limitless) VT mystic badge VT 8 ss First stage of legendary pet (enough for PvE anyway) Gems - 3 octas, 5 heptas (soon octa ruby, so count half gems being octas) What I blame on the newest content is how the Nightfall Sanctuary raid skyrocketed the dps required to clear the raid, not to forget some classes gets cucked with their dps event with full VT like my main Shadow WL. And what's more infuriating ? The mechs are being nerfed, but it's useless because you KNOW you still have the same dps requirement to meet, more or less. So yeah, the problem is having to grind so much for oils in order to complete what ? A 20 IQ raid ? Pretty disappointing. The question isn't about grinding itself, it's if it's worth grinding for the content you want to play.
  14. "free 2 play" path lmao, what kind of bs is this. Anyway the concept itself is busted anyway, even PvP weapons works in PvE it's just that their bonus are obviously not fit for it. Raid and PvE weapons are the same, it's made to clear PvE content and that's the thing : Raid is still PvE. So why choose a path with 50% cd on short fuse or 10% on RMB (? not sure) for FM when you can go raid path that gives 100000000000% bonus instead ? They put themselves in a corner in my opinion when they release raid path, I don't really understand why there are 2 paths to begin with now, they should just merge them already.
  15. Farewell Blade & Soul!

    @FlameSui I was there as well, when Belsazar stepped up from Vindictus EU, which is when the game started to go downhill fast enough. The RISE update just nailed the hit in the head, the update just destroyed everything I've played the game for. Thus said, I'm worried enough as well for Blade and Soul. ET is most likely coming soon, yet easily 3/4 of the community still haven't cleared TT nor even tried it. Upgrades starts to be really tedious, especially on the sacred Vials side. (needed for literally everything at this point, even last acc breakthrough) To be honest, your opinion actually made me question myself about why I shouldn't keep playing this game. For some reasons, I can feel like fate is ironic and that the "big" update that awakening is will turn out to be the same kind of troll I've lived through Vindictus and it's "big" RISE update, like I have legit a bad feeling about it in reality. Time will tell I guess. Going back on the thread, it's sad to see Jon leaving indeed, and I'm kind of worried about the future as well. Good luck for your future plans o/
  16. Why bother when you can tank at 8m as well ? LUL
  17. I don't PvP but let me tell you how all of this also affects PvE, making the game even more of a boring fest that it already is.. Warden and Warlock : simple, instant-sb + better sanctum + better burst/dps. "Sanctum is party xd" No I can see you right there, Blade Ward is personal but do you really think every single party member are going to stay in WL's Sanctum area specifically because it's being cast ? No. Warden and KFM/BM : Blade Ward, probably 80% up during the whole fight, this resists any kind of cc, Aerial and Knockback included. Yes in short, press V and do whatever you want. Why bother blocking ? Why bother dodging ? New meta is here bois. The most pathetic thing about it ? You have 9 balanced classes, and 1 absolutely broken. (Gunslinger is still questionable) What do you think is the way to go for lv60 ? Obviously to give something similar to Blade Ward as passive for Wind KFM. Why balance Warden when you can potentially break every other classes ? The absolute fun. Warden and Destroyer : Typhoon doesn't even come close to the duration of Blade Ward in terms of resisting every single cc. It doesn't, it just doesn't.. did I forgot to talk about Blade Ward increasing 40% of equipment elemental damage for 12 sec ? Do you realise 12 sec is even longer than a f-ing True Dragon soul ? Hey do you remember how Typhoon increase elemental damage by 1337% ? This class is ruining the game, it's ruining the fun, it's ruining everything it touches. I've snapped and ruined some people today by kicking their Warden, I mean it's not their fault technically and I know I've been toxic there and there's no excuse but I just can't, I just can't keep up with the bullsh*t this game goes in every single day, after day, after day anymore. It s*cks hard, people have the right to play but stuff divides. It's exhausting, and the worst is that it's not even like everybody going "waah waaah pay2win game reeee, i quit" like I don't even care about pay 2 "win", especially in PvE you don't win anything. It's the core of the game being completely... off. I don't know, the frustration is real. Learning, teaching, playing your very own class.. all being ruined because one single shitty class does everything or the fact you have 'strats' to go like "Hey as WL, gotta use my Thrall for FD at Hollow's Heart" but it doesn't matter anymore because nothing wipes, nothing this, nothing that, just spec 25 speed points and be freaking Sanic. Like I practiced that to make it super flawless, just to end up getting a big middle finger. It's joining dungeons, randomly gathering BMs, KFMs and WLs, just so last spot gets a Warden and literally throws a big "F*ck You" to every single class I've gathered. It's Destroyer being most likely a dead class, but then more of this kind of bs like Warden just makes Destro even less attractive. It's absolutely horrible to see even in PvP, this class seems to f*ck around with every single one as well according to the comments. I'll say it there : last good class was Soul Fighter.
  18. Content from RNG boxes for Belgian players.

    This is what happens when you play with fire. For a long time now, and this isn't Blade and Soul only by the way don't worry, all this "RNG this, RNG that" would end up backfiring. I play another game than BnS, tho it's not at the same level at all (triple A game) and specially not the same genre (tactical FPS) but literally : when "rng lootboxes" are released, let's say there's 20 items to collect, you'll never need more than 20 packs to HOPE to get the whole thing as there's no duplicate item f.e. Why not make the same kind of thing for Blade and Soul ? Along RNG boxes there's those items you can collect to exchange via. Dragon Express to get some specific items as well so maybe this should be look into for more positive feedback. ^^
  19. [SUGGESTIONS] For the Future of B&S

    Players are so desperate that they make their own patch notes.
  20. no reason players kick my FM

    Of course if you're from SEA the ping is relatively annoying to deal with, which means the dps also drops a lot. Also I'm from Europe, the ping isn't the best but it's not as terrible either, I'd say it's acceptable at least for PvE. But anyway the dungeons are fine the way they are, you're not supposed to do everything with story gear. It's also not hard at all to get Raven/Rift-Dawn nowadays, and as long as most of legendary accs are stage 3 min. (BT accs f.e.), it's fine.
  21. no reason players kick my FM

    Yeah I got it, but even when I have "low geared" dealing ~100k (X5 then) while I'm here dealing around 300-350k sustain, I'm still not even close to a min of the enrage timer so there's clearly something wrong.
  22. no reason players kick my FM

    I suppose that clan mate solo'd the boss at this point :l
  23. Braindead chars

    Sounds like the typical alt tab tab player, that also thinks Warlock cannot do "fast paced" mechanics. Not saying it's hard, no classes in the game is hard anyway, but that's definitely more thoughtful than this certain class standing in the middle pressing V, making it immune to any kind of cc until the skill is gone.
  24. Blade and Soul - Mushin Story [SPOILER] + Chapter 10

    I don't like this at all. Why ? This sounds like Mushin is going to be redeemed, which means cucked Cricket once again.
