  1. erro

    Not really sure where or what your speaking about but going to assume being distracted by a character's skill in which case you could control + F and hide other players and their effects..less distraction.
  2. Adding event quest to daily challenges

    Didn't bother to check out as to why mechanics was added to this topic and by no means do I want a long winded reply. What @Grimoir said was pretty right on the money. If players do not want to take time out of their busy schedules to learn mechanics in order to get said gear / item / event currency...whatever the case is then they shouldn't get the gear. Since you like bringing in real life examples here is one. Bob for the sake of argument has no skills, no training but wants $20 a hour at this job, David however comes with skills and training and lands the job and makes $25 a hour. Should Bob of gotten the job over someone who put in the effort? Nope. As for the events in the daily challenge rotation. While it might help players who are limited on time complete not only their daily challenge but also the event itself, it shouldn't count towards it in my opinion. For the most part the events aren't much effort aside from examples like one might bring up the Ring of Reckoning Stage 4. One can always argue that if you had the gear even that wouldn't of equaled much of a challenge. So why add it to daily challenge when really it should be apart from the normal routine as most events in other games are?
  3. Gunwon Blade compared to Scaleburn blade

    No longer needed so throw it in your showroom or use it as a weapon skin. Also, something to take note. While you get a Scaleburn weapon now from the story..You can also go to Zaiwei, The merchant next to the achievement merchant (the dragon scale npc) sells the new DawnForge / RiftWalk chests which are not locked behind needing to complete a part of the story so, from now on unless it gets changed you can just go buy one at level 50 and use that (can't upgrade it of course til your able to run said dungeons or farm moon refuge at HM 13). It cost 5 Naryu Silver per box (buy til you get a 8 gem slot weapon).
  4. Please dont put MSP in future events

    I'm being very logical. This event especially unless your focusing on pet packs, vials or gems, the jewels are meant to get your alt characters / main higher up in the tiers which are not bound to account so if your alt characters can't use them or don't need them, you can afford to skip MSP in your example a few times depending on the amount of alt characters your thinking about running through. Some events are better then others to progress at a faster pace but at the same time if you have enough time to invest into your alt characters (if we're talking in terms of like myself 9 total) then you can / should also afford the time to invest in doing the said event of course if you truly want the items your working towards. Also, the main reason alt characters exist really isn't to progress faster but so you can play and enjoy the game as a different class. Learning each class will not only help you in PvP but also PvE as well so you can better help your party understand their roles (nicely which most seem to forget to be) not to mention yes progress faster but surely not the 'main reason'.
  5. Please dont put MSP in future events

    I can't speak for others but I mostly do stuff with my clan. I enjoy the events for the most part. Also, you only need to do 3 dailies especially on alt characters just to get it done and out of the way so, if you choose not to do MSP on all characters then so be it. Still doesn't mean they need to change events to suit only a handful of players that might not like it.
  6. Why are you guys adding stuff nobody wants...

    I like to collect things and you bet I'll be there fishing on my main everyday for at least the Networker outfit and the new pets. I have the other crafted head pieces already. Still though the list can always expand or change with future updates so I doubt it is set in stone. Outfits in the first post, I really don't pay attention to since I'm free to play so I only wear what I can from events / thread I save up so it is whatever, but I'm sure some people might want those outfits if they missed out on them.
  7. Please dont put MSP in future events

    Should they also give you all of the good items from the event while they are at changing the events to meet your needs? Just wondering. MSP barely takes anytime at all to do even with a small group of friends that don't have very much gear as long as they learn it and know what to do / expect. Less time for even more geared players. Much like any dungeon you might mention in your reply. If you don't like it, I'll be frank and just tell you...there is nothing saying you must do it. I know plenty of people that just plum don't like certain events and don't bother doing it. Do they miss out on free items, sure but it is their choice much like it is yours. Only event I had some issue with as of late was the Ring of Reckoning as it could of been better to allow everyone to obtain the one emblems for fighting the Stage 4 turtle and not just the geared players but it is what it is. Still was fun seeing how far I could get it down with may as well say mid tier gear but then again I also solo MSP 1-4 without much issue.
  8. They did changes to battlegrounds as is and no one really said a thing about it. Even now without the change you know how long the queue is for 3 vs 3 without premade teams? Think on my other account it was around 10-15 mins and grant you this wasn't during frenzy but honestly without frenzy time, the arena is pretty much dead as is even without the change. However, I don't see anyone giving them constructive feedback or offering any kind of worth wild change. While it might be up to the players on when "they want to queue", it is also up to the game devs on when they consider it "peak time" and change the time accordingly. It has nothing to do with killing off pvp, think of it in these terms. If you had it all day you would experience longer queue times normally. If you can only do it during set times however, you shouldn't have any issue finding real matches with shorter queue times due to everyone wanting to get whatever they are working on done. This game in general is just like most of its type. It is for the most part PvE but offers PvP as a past time. Why else do you think there was only like 1 (since I started, the valentines event) event that really had anything to do with PvP? I enjoy PvP as much as most but I don't live and breath it.
  9. Listened to us about the cost of souls. Just a question though, how exactly is this update making it anti pvp when the only thing that really effects pvp is they are changing times for arena and such? Are you one of those win traders or something?
  10. Dead game :(

    That is kind of weird because I do solo NS - HH daily. Grant it, on my warden. Takes practice but can be done. Also helps you learn the attack patterns so, regardless of class or defense you'd be fine. Personally though, I feel they should have a solo version of every dungeon so you can go in, earn a smaller amount of rewards while learning it as a lot of mechanics aren't covered by doing them through the F12 Hongmoon Training Room.
  11. You give players that power and they will abuse it. Has been abused in the past which might be the reason why it is no longer a option on F8 for players that are still online. There is another ways to remove "leechers" and that is simple, make it so you have to actually contribute to killing the boss or you don't get credit. Like most it requires you to do like 1% or something. Again though that wouldn't exactly be fair to people that load very slow and going how impatient a lot of the community is, they will kill the boss not wait for you like they should and poof you must go again in hopes you get a party that will actually wait. As for Master Loot rights, honestly there shouldn't even be a thing in regardless. Prime example, I was helping on a few raid runs using my main. I did most of the work, didn't get a single drop because the players I ran with were mostly in the same clan and treated it like their clan first while putting in very little effort. Fair? Nope. Kind of like how while Master Loot isn't a thing, a party leader can still set min. bid on items on F8 which should also be removed if you get down to it. So, everyone has a fair shot when it comes to bidding for said item. In the end, regardless of what you might think or others, systems can always be abused in some way.
  12. Still if you add the vote kick option back, it will be abused which is why it was removed in the first place. Players need to basically speak to one another, check to make sure people are actually there before entering dungeons, ask if people load slower. You are still able to kick before entering the dungeon. What I do while it might not be ideal is just this everyone gets one chance with me on F8, if you leech, afk or whatever, you get blocked. I notice you in my dungeon party while we are still recruiting you get kicked. Also, yea people rush through the dungeons and don't really deal with the trash mobs and yet if they actually killed the trash mobs it would help out make the run overall faster so the rest of the party behind them wouldn't be stuck in combat therefore slowing down the run. Logic right?
  13. To be honest there isn't a issue with the current system however, it really falls on the players being impatient and not waiting for everyone to be at said bosses before killing much like I have noticed in Tower of Memory where basically if you happen to load slower currently you might actually be screwed out of the event / locked out as your party might of finished the run before you fully load in, in some cases.
  14. Light BM skill issue

    That is kind of weird because in Moon Refuge on my baby Blade Master, it does @ 500k damage with mostly critical (rift walk stage 3 and crap gear). I tend to keep the buff up and only use it when I'm able to use lightning draw which is what seems to make it critical more so then not.
  15. Merchant of Wonder prices are fine as is in my opinion. Look at it this way you can now buy the VT mystic badge item for 150g. If you think that price is high look on market for a sealed version from players. 780 gold. Now who is higher? If you buy materials such as crystals from him you would be better off just running more dungeons and getting them free. Now as for soul shields, you have a ton of sources for them so, why should they change it at all when it was meant to be a 'bonus' from doing dungeons that you get a chance at them to drop? Needing Grand Celestial Weapon to do the raid that drops the actual weapon is a very weak argument and you know it. Don't base things off what other players require you to have in order to join their raids. It doesn't mean you need it to finish the said raid, hell for Nightfall Sanctuary the most you need is this, Aransu / Storm / Exalted Stage 9, Skybreak Ring / Earring Stage 10, Necklace from VT Stage 10, whatever your Hellion Bracelet is Stage 10, Horizon Belt Stage 3 - 10, King Gloves Stage 10 (or even Awakened Starstone Mine Gloves can work). At least the Event stage Soul / Pet Aura. Heart helps so, go for whatever you can afford (up to a point it takes no vials), likewise with your talisman. And last but not least, considering the sources from Heaven's Mandate and Cold Storage drop them often enough your gems should be at least Heptagonal. Basic understanding of the raid mechanics (probably the most important).
  16. Soulstone Plains SERIOUS problem

    I still say that the whole faction system needs to be looked into to revamp it like they have been doing with certain dungeons / areas. Make it more relevant, boost the npc's health to counter the new amount of damage that most of us do today. As well as possibly removing the whole soulstone aspect from SSP. Lets face it, not only is it players but also those "gold sellers" that farm there as well which in turn make them money by selling soulstone that allow them to keep certain websites up and running for those dumb enough to buy gold from them. Also, for those that will or have said it is irrelevant content, you still need it for a few things aside from soulstone which we even had a chat about it on my discord. Still only way to obtain the highest faction rank without spending years grinding the faction quests, still the only viable source of mirage crystals for clan outfits (yes people including myself still do those) not to mention faction insignia to level up competitive clans (sure you can join a rank 15 clan but how do you think they hit rank 15? or gain less bonus via social clans).
  17. Marketplace Not Working Properly Again

    Actually you don't long as you make sure to have 'exact match" checked before doing search.
  18. Glided Square Diamond Pouch ( no information provided)

    Hmm, found this link with a quick search. Read a few post. We all get your logic but at the same time information is always out there as I'm sure this has been complained about before.
  19. Glided Square Diamond Pouch ( no information provided)

    No, my point was this just using google you could of found the required information to better help you understand about said item in less then 30 seconds depending on your internet or you could of asked in faction chat while many on the game will give you smartass replies, someone would of helped you understand more about that item. Also, there is plenty of guides about this game on youtube as well which explain most things. While the information could of been provided in-game on the item description which it isn't, one should refer to others for help. That wasn't a petty comeback but a way of making the point as you did with your bank interest rate comment.
  20. Glided Square Diamond Pouch ( no information provided)

    While it could of been labeled or added to the item information, it is also your fault for not doing some research. Do you play a game without reading any kind of guide or ask questions when you are unsure about something in life in general? No, you do research and learn before acting (considering you wanted to compare what I said to a real life thing).
  21. Glided Square Diamond Pouch ( no information provided)

    The craft is basically 50% on which one you will end up with while the diamond for defense can be useless, it does have it's fun moments at least for low level open world pvp.
  22. More SSP channels please

    Faction is a form of PvP but players themselves turned SSP into a joke of a place now treating it as PvE. You have plenty of other ways to get the materials. Trial Arena for one can net you about 500 or so soulstone (based on how many stages you can clear) each time there is a reset for it. You can gather the rest while slowly from running dungeons especially ones like Drowning Deeps over and over for the material chest. It isn't as fast as doing say Battlegrounds but still a source. A lot of you players seem to forget if your not willing to swipe a credit card sell that ncoin on exchange for gold, you actually need to grind for items. So things don't come very fast as a free player. I understand that and still continue to play as a free player.
  23. More SSP channels please

    Not entirely long ago as it was still a minor amount from the quest as I was playing and questing during that time which amounted to exactly 11 soulstone from doing the faction quests going from Wandering Hut > Misty Woods. Also, they could be removed all together from SSP and keep it for Arena and Battlegrounds. Besides even soulstone was reduced from SSP and I believe increased soulstone crystals if I'm not mistaken. Either way they need to make more adjustments, reduce channels so it is more pvp then pve oriented (pvp isn't a bunch of people standing around without faction outfits on and waiting for a boss to spawn).
  24. Hongmoon Gem Powder for 25 SOLAR?

    Basically you can either wait til it is reduced or just deal with it and move along. As you know price will more then likely be reduced. Let me ask you one thing however, once you get done making your Obsidian, what real use is Solar Energy other then either supply alt characters with soul badges, or blowing it on now Hongmoon Gem Powder, maybe the experience charms for alt characters. While I agree with most the price is high, it is still a source of Hongmoon Gem Powder that as free players lacked in regards to the update which removed a source. Now it isn't strictly a Trove item. Besides while it might not be ideal, go farm Moon Refuge. Get the Gilded Gems while they are RNG on which you might get. Farm the Murky Drake get some of them to cut cost on the powder you need so you can work on upgrading the BiS Gem types (I swear if you say but they aren't Dyad I will beat you lol) and go from there until a better source comes along.
  25. More SSP channels please

    Well they need to keep some source of mirage. Personally I think arena shouldn't be used for the material that can be traded. Which is why they removed soulstone below SSP and should just remove it completely from Faction. Fact is the whole system needs to be updated, mobs need to be raised to match today's current content (higher hp due to our damage raising even straight out of story). And a possible overhaul of the clan system on the competitive side. Even had a player tell me "how cute" it was that I was doing faction in order to level up my new clan. Guess he forgot it takes faction tokens *shrug*
