  1. Weapon Gems

    Is there any plan to do something with these or do we just let them pile up in inventory rather than sell then for 1copper via Trader? Oh okay the Gilded Triangles are worth 5Gold. Point is they are dead in the water. Can't transfer them, salvage them, upgrade them, just dump them? Seems like a waste of resources to buy them in first place! Oh - and you don't know they are dead until you get a random gem from various sources, never to get one again! Only place that seems safe to buy a gem is from the dragon trader using 8 Solar Energy!
  2. Why does this game take forever to boot up?

    I also used to have a load time of around 5-7 minutes. Gave me plenty of time to do summat else. I eventually got fed up with this, and used a system cleaner to optimise my system, and also, using NVidia, I used their graphics optimiser on the Geforce Experience software. This has my loading time down to 2 minutes which I am okay with.
  3. RP folk out there?

    Not seen any Clans set up for RP so is not likely. It would be possible to do this that way as you can set up a channel for clan only chat.
  4. Why is Macroing frowned upon?

    Okay - so there are no macros in game that can be used or setup to make combo's easier, but I never relied on games to provide this, not even WoW which I play little now as I am here! XD How did I get around remembering and making new combo's? I use a Macro mouse and keyboard. The mouse is from Logitech and has 5 programmable buttons - got 2 set up for my combo macros. The keyboard I use is from Corsair and has 6 macro keys and I have set up 2 of these so far. They work. It was slow to work out timing between skills for triggering the macro and waiting for the reset/cool down rates, but it works. I always ran out of reset charms! Having said that, most of the time I do not use the macros anyway, not now with the addition of the "Simple" key.
  5. Auto-Fish Fail Bug

    Yup I am also getting the Auto-Fail! I thought was random at one time, tripped by local events, like other player's effects and local fighting (Moon Refuge). This week however I looked at it. I bought Taigon's auto bait from the store 300+100 then spent 100 gold at the vendor for another 1000 auto bait. That is within the limit for fishing so all are used. This means around 10 hours of fishing with one interruption for switching bait from Taigon to regular auto bait. For 8 days I fished Dasari North (across lake) without interruption, until yesterday and today. I am on my own most of the time, and occasionally there is one or two other players. Sometimes I switch channels to find a quiet spot. Yesterday I recorded 10 auto-fails which is not that bad from 1400, but was still a PITA. Today I had 60 auto-fails. I had 35 one after the other at Dasari North. No one around. I changed channel again and moved to Dasari West. I had another 25 here but were broken up and not in a solid block. This is with Blade and Soul the only and active screen open. Only windows tasks running in the background (6 core Processor). With monitoring and normal day to day living, checking and restarting the fishing went from 10 hours approx. to 16 hours! Bring back the A Team!
  6. February Store Update

    Costumes are cycled along with new additions, this is to give players a chance to add to their collections for buffs.
  7. February Store Update

    Not going anywhere near this trap......
  8. Yup - no Christmas gifts... Up to 2400NCoin for outfit and a bunch of items that probably will be trashed for 1copper each. Last year we had Hongsil's workshop and that was quite popular and nobody minded that at all. Was that for Christmas? I forget now for certain. So again EU is fleeced of their money. So much for Good Will, and the only 0 purchase items are for Warden and 20 stamps per month for premium. At least we got the wheel for a while...
  9. You know - I cannot even find these items mentioned?? o.0 Is there anything at all on the EU servers Christmas related apart from outfits and accessories?! It is Christmas day now and still I find nothing o.o
  10. This game needs to be shut down

    I have a few moans about this game, but there is not another closely resembling the format and I have yet to find a better combat interface that is both intuitive and user friendly. Most players complain because they enjoy the game but there are areas that are deteriorating. This game does need more staff to run through as a player to see just what they have done. Latest side story, the Silversteel? 20 minutes game play. If you rush you can maybe do this in 10-15 minutes. My beef with that is the attention given to, and the very well made video cuts. They are really good, but some of them ( 2 I can think of now) take away from the game any enjoyment of discovery. Unnecessary. Same as happened with previous side story. When the team was "refreshed", was it more animators and less programmers? Because the game play deteriorated and parts are held together with bandaids! Players want to enjoy the game not spend so much time interrupted by videos! I really enjoyed the story behind the game, as I suspect did a lot of the original players. Newer players will not have had the same feeling after the majority of the game was chopped. I miss Blues Clues! lol Now it is rush the players through the game with no thought to the artists behind the awesome landscapes and majestic structures, towards the current end of the game. But what is this?! A Roadblock! Crafting and upgrades just got a serious knock down! Material prices and availability just became most unfavourable! Anybody out there who is a solo player without being premium will never under the current system get Rare Elements! NEVER! What has happened?? None premium players who do not party are being carefully driven out of the game? This is sad... We will miss them....
  11. Max Character Slots 11? Why is it not 12?

    I could be mistaken, but I think when Warden was released a free (Level 60?) slot came with it, and then another free slot was given with the Archer release. So there were 2 free slots. Without these the limit would have been 10. NCSoft paged the character list on the title page when Warden was released. I had 8 when Warden was launched and I also purchased a slot to give me 10. When Archer with a free slot was launched I purchased another slot before I realised I had a free one which gave me 12 slots. Now I look at the received items folder and I get the message, "The maximum available character slots in Blade & Soul is 11. You cannot purchase or use vouchers in access of this amount." So I do not think the left hand knows what the right hand is doing...….
  12. Received Items

    yup - most annoying and time consuming again! 13 of 1 item retrieval = 5,3,2,1,1,1 etc... is again a PIA
  13. Fishing Guide

    Yup - I caught this at Dasari West - that is the one to the left of the one where the vendor is (South).
  14. Max Character Slots 11? Why is it not 12?

    This must be an error if you cannot purchase a slot and could be account related. I have 12 slots already yet I still purchased another, so I have a redundant slot voucher for the time being.
  15. Fishing Achievements?

    Auto-fish?? Okay - I think this has been kinda missed.... You get 3 achievements for standing there and fishing in Dasari yes? 3 of them in total. Just for catching X amount of fish. This takes some skill but not much. You can do this from 1 pier. There are 46 specimens of fish to catch - 4/5 of which are caught only at Sapphire Basin, approx. 8 are caught from Moon Refuge, and rest at Dasari. There are 2 piers at Moon Refuge and 3 at Dasari. All in all there are 6 piers from which to catch the 46 species of fish to complete the collection. AND YOU GET NO RECOGNITION FOR THIS! You can spend 3-4 weeks trying to catch 1 fish and already you got "Master Angler" for catching loads of puny bait fish, but when it comes to planning and selecting where to catch your fish you get nothing! Tell me - are the achievements for spending resources? and what is with the rewards? 600 pearls get you 5 x 1,000 XP tokens with a chance of an aqua pet and 1,200 pearls get you 1 with even less chance of getting much more?
