  1. Where are customization files saved?

    As i said, i might find it in my backup. I will have to redo it if it's not in there.. but i'd like to use my old file if possible. It cant be that nobody knows where this game stores its ui and/or chat customization settings lol. Edit: If anybody is interrested in the future: I wrote a ticket to the support. The information is indeed saved in the ClientConfiguration.xml, however ingame you need to click the round button at the bottom left in the character selection screen. The default setting is to load your configuration from the cloud. You need to select that it should use the local configurations, then replace the ClientConfiguration.xml with your old file and you will have your old settings enabled. Not sure if you can upload your local settings tho. Will edit this post if i have an answer. Edit2: If you have never used the cloud option then the first time you use it, it will use your local settings. From there on, it is not currently possible to automatically upload your local settings. You can either manually save them locally and always replace them.. or you manually configure everything the way you want in the cloud option again.
  2. Where are customization files saved?

    I appreciate the attempt to help me, and i really dont want to be that guy, but you didnt read what i wrote, did you? As i already mentioned in my opening post, the ClientConfiguration.xml found at the location you just mentioned, does NOT contain the informations i need. I have my old file backed up. When i exchange the files, basically nothing changes. Just an example as for why the file cant be the right one: 1. I just installed a fresh copy of the game after formatting my computer, which means everything is set to default values. 2. Now i change something at my ui. 3. Now i delete the ClientConfigurations.xml so that a new one will be generated 4. The changes i made to the ui (in point 2) are still in game. If they were saved in that file, they would have disappeared. Edit: I just checked again, and no, the chat customizations are also not saved there. Unless they changed something with the file format and you cant use your old file (april 2016) anymore anyways. Was there a customization wipe sometime in the last 9 months?
  3. I left the game like 9 months ago and intend to start playing again. So i downloaded the game and.. realized that all the customizations were saved locally - which is great. Sarcasm off ;) Since i might have accidentally saved the files before formatting my PC, where would i have to look for them? In which files does BnS save the chat and ui customizations? When i googled it said that these changes are saved in the ClientConfigurations.xml one can find located in C/User/Name/Documents/BnS/NCWest, however that's now the correct file (since replacing it did nothing, and changing my UI and then deleting it, and thus auto-generating a new one, results in no reset for my ui). TL;DR: Where are the chat and ui customizations saved locally? Or did they change something in the last 3/4 year and i have to redo my changes anyways?
  4. No problem with it... if dps wasnt directly linked to your ping and if the ping wasnt completely messed up on their end. Having a dps meter on dummies, only for yourself, would be much appreciated. But in dungeons.. nah.
  5. Melee and PVE

    I dont have a problem with dungeons and stuff. Also not with mushins tower. It required more skill, but that's to be expected when playing meele and i enjoyed it. What really is annoying is doing these open world or 24 man events such as terrors, soulstone plains and grand harvest where you will hardly get to even survive as a meele. I'm not even talking about skill. It would be much less annoying if the game had a stable connection with good fps all the time, but the servers are broken (i live in germany. Ping jumps between 30 which should be what i always have - and 230... which shouldnt even be possible.. and that every few seconds or even more often. And there are a lot of people having this problem. It's not my ISP btw.) and the game's engine is not especially made for mmorpgs which causes huge performance loss with many players on the screen, even if you turn down the settings. Of course, on top of that there are really unfair mechanics like the irregularily spammed mechanics of the terrors. So jeah, i sorta agree. You can easily play dungeons and stuff in this game, but if you want to do all content without living in the house next to the server farm and a 2000€+ computer, then playing ranged is the option to go.
  6. Soul Shield

    While leveling just use what you can get. If you want to level to 50 (49 is easy. Do main story only. 50 takes a bit more) then just run a few dungeons after 50 and take the shields you get there and after that get whatever is the best SS right now (so purple dungeons. Scorpion/Yeti first and Asura later). If you want to upgrade to a decent soulshield now (if you dont want to grind to 50) then try to get the bloodshade harbor soulshield and enhance it with poharan 24man crit 8 soulshields. That will do the job until you can equip 50's soulshields.

    People brought this up since release. Well.. in fact.. probably since closed beta. And suddenly - now - it's a thing. Why?
  8. Not many players at lower Lvl areas

    It shouldnt be a huge surprise to be honest. Most players are max level. The only people you'll meet at lower levels (<45) are new players or twinks. And since leveling to 45 takes between 15 to 20h when ur fast, it's to be expected that there are not a lot of players. Also: be happy about it! You dont even want to imagine how it was at launch when every person spawn camped some stupid quest mobs just because there were only 7 of them per channel and they had a respawn time of 30 seconds or so and 20+ players were in that area. It was hell.
  9. Bid system in dungeons

    Holy shit. Dude. That whole THING is one sentence. On top of that you're claiming to have been some advisor in not just one, but two games. Of course. First of all, i wont blame you for your lack of english knowledge. It's clearly not your native language, but i'd at least expect some level of punctuation and grammar and.. common sense, especially when you claim to have been some sort of advisor - because let's face it, if you'd work as an advisor, you'd know how to english. I would also doubt that ur old enough to work at all. Post seems more like a 13 year old raging about something. On topic. The bidding system is fine. The only problem i have with it is the possible abuse for scam. If you get outbid, then you are not bidding enough money. If they bid a lot of money, you'll get a 1/5 of the money they spent, so even if there are for some reason only people bidding a billion gold on a crap item that you happen to need, you'll be able to affort it after you did not get it a few times, even if you did not own a single copper before. I dont know what level you are. If you are still leveling (<45) then you can shit on what ever amount of money you own. It's nothing. Use it to get what you want and speed up your leveling process. If you are max level and farm for soulshields and stuff.. it's basically supply and demand (like everything else). If the soulshield is good and multiple people want it, they'll bid on it until most dropped out. The one who offers the most wins. The others get some money (from him). Also, it's not uncommon that people bid some gold for soulshields in purple dungeons >=Naryu. that's just what they are worth. If you disagree, you're not gonna get them since others are willing to spend this amount of gold on them. Deal with it.
  10. Time gates content like this is just stupid. It's not that you need a long time to achieve it, it's that the ONLY *cricket* thing you can do to get closer to your goal is play 30 minutes a day, because then ur locked out, unless you pay for it. And jeah.. the other chance to obtain them (purple% btw) requires really really good gear also. When i play i game, i want to at least be able to farm towards a goal in the speed i want. If you only give us stuff for 30 minutes playtime, then people will only play 30 minutes unless they need something else. Oh and.. i dont like to call grinding something for a 0.01% chance to drop a flower "farming". You can farm douzens of hours without a single drop making a day without a drop effectively wasted effort after the 30 minutes to get your 4 blue balls. Then people will come and say "jeah but you can just farm the gold and buy them". While that's true.. let's be honest. If you want to farm gold, you'll pick the most efficient way to do so and repeat it over and over and over again. Depending on prices you can make 25 or even more gold per hour. But we are talking about huge amounts of gold needed. Like.. 20k++ and that's only this content. That's 800 hours or farming gold. That's 800 hours of repeating the same content over and over and over again. Even if you make 50 gold an hour, that's still an insane amount of time. To say that everything should be connected to gold is just bad game design that favors such monotonous gameplay. A better game design would be to let us farm dungeons for the items we need. Different dungeons. And other content of course. So we do have to grind stuff, but not only the same dungeon for hundreds of hours. Let's just imagine for a minute that we needed untradeable, personal, drops from purple dungeons where you get a few per run and need like 50 each for the weapon, and then imagine the flowers also being untradeable and the dungeon being farmable unlimited per day. And of course some tradeable materials and gold for the weapon upgrade too. We would still need hundreds of hours to get good gear that way, but we would play a lot of different content, and not just the same 4 man dungeon for an eternity. Just my opinion on the thought.
  11. Who is not qutting but rather takign a break?

    I'm also shortly before taking a break. The only thing i've done so far for the last few weeks is crafting. And now people are even crafting the *cricket* STS for a loss or 3g profit if ur lucky or bought everything in a down peak. I'm a bit afraid that as soon as i stop logging in every day, i'll stop logging in frequently.. and in the end stop playing. Well if you can call what i do playing in the first place^^ Since i dont have time to play 24/7 anymore i feel like progression became a pain in the ass. Playing one or two hours a days does not do a lot, and if you only play 2 hours a day to make decent gold you'll also end up doing the exact same every day - or ur loosing money. I started to gear up one of my twinks and then realised that i felt this way. I still love this game for what it was/is and i played several hundred hours already, but right now i'm just feeling burned out and the fact that all of my friends quit for one reason or another (mainly their server or optimisation) doesnt really help to keep me at the game - because who the *cricket* plays an mmorpg alone.
  12. 1: 2, but the rest is at 46 with the exception of my LBM, which is.. 19. 2: Twinks are all maxed infernal with awakened profane weapon and moonwater soulshield 3: Took the money from my main. It's about 30 or so gold to equip a char to that point. Twinks are useful to generate money too, so they'll pay back :P 4: True pirate, awakened siren stuff or drops if they were better. 5: Yes and no. Cant decide between WL and BM right now. Ranged classes just have a huge advantage. Not playing that actively right now anyway tho. 6: Gonna upgrade my WL to the point of my BM and see which one i like more overall then.

  14. To open a ticket basically means to contant the support. That's their job: if anybody can restore it, then it's them :) Wouldnt get my hopes to high, but it's definitely worth a try.
  15. Premium, is it worth it?

    Depends on what you do. If you start the game, i'd say yes. Some people say it's not worth it after you hit max level. The benefits you should think about (besides more ep for leveling and so on) are: - Lower windstride cooldown - Lower (minus 25-50% depending on premium level) fees for putting items in AH - You can use the wardrobe to store outfits That's the major ones imo. Maybe i forgot something. Some say it's worth it, some say it is not. Keep in mind that the benefits grow with higher premium levels (thus, the longer you played or the more you payed, the better it becomes). Also keep in mind that it's actually pretty cheap compared to other subscriptions.
