  1. I don't know 'bout you, but some of my shits are glorious. You gotta do it, but its also super satisfying.
  2. Yeah, that's what I was thinking xD Even Guild Wars 2 has grinding, it's just part of the MMO formula - people blast through content and then complain about grinding. And they literally just came out with their largest content update TODAY. *sigh* there's always people who are never satisfied - even for a free game lol. Seeya OP.
  3. Information About Orbs

    If I remember correctly, the orbs are only used for Dragoncall for cooldown reduction, and are a prerequisite for Dragon Helix, which you can't even use unless you have 3 orbs.
  4. It's not described well in the skill tooltip. But if you let Imprison finish, you'll see the icon for Dragoncall change. If you cast at this point, it doesn't instantly hit the target like the tooltip says. However, you can move and use other skills. Try using Dragoncall by itself, you will cancel it if you try to move.
  5. Ruby Gem Not Working!?

    As @Elynya indicated, it is a chance to get +230 additional damage, not always (that would be awesome though) Diamonds give you +X additional damage always. Fun fact: If you watch your character while attacking, if the gem effect is triggered, it will show a silhouette of that color (so for ruby, you will see a red outline pop out of your character, for amethyst it will be a purple outline, etc.)
  6. Don't be this guy, please.

    It's the blatant ignorance that bothers me. Yeah, I guess it's just a game, they can do whatever they want. They're not breaking any rules. It's just a crappy move on their part, and unfortunately nothing will most likely be done :( Best scenario, NCSoft has a heart, realizes what people are doing, and if it's bothering a lot of their player base (which means they're losing customers), hopefully that'll be incentive enough to change some things around. Like @Startrance said - make the monsters shareable. (I don't know what the OP was fighting in the video, but I'm guessing whoever strikes first gets the loot?)
  7. Character Name Check?

    Hey, this is great! Good idea, and thanks for letting me know :)
  8. Character Name Check?

    Hi all! I couldn't find anything about this, but is it possible to check if your character name is taken when you create a new character? Sometimes I model my character after something, like a person or character in a show, movie, or whatever. And it would suck if I did that and then the name isn't available. So is it possible to check before making your character? Thanks!
  9. New player saying hello

    Nah, sorry - I'm only level 40 on my KFM. Now that you say this though, not looking forward to those dungeons lol. Will need to practice, but most likely will just join a big group.
  10. New player saying hello

    Like we both said, it's a highly skilled class. If you practice and become good with blocking and countering, it is hard to die. I've solo'd all dungeons up to Tomb of Exiles, which isn't saying much lol, but just signifying that they can hold their own. Yeah they don't have the highest DPS, but they are great tanks and with my skills spec'd for HP, if I counter or use certain skills, I gain alot of HP back. With this plus the life steal gem, yeah I may mess up one block and lose 20% HP or w/e, but I'll gain that back from using skills and blocking the next time (or using Rising Dragon, which instantly gives me back 10% HP)
  11. New player saying hello

    In terms of class, I am using KFM and I love it. To describe the play style, it's a very fast-paced, heavily skilled class. Requires good timing and chaining combos to be effective. When PvEing, you will most likely never die, and in PvP, you need to focus hard to counter and stun opponents so you can get them in a long combo chain. Very rewarding class to play, but also difficult to master. A couple things I can tell you from my experience in playing: - Craft early. Once you get to level 15 in Jadestone Village, choose your 4 crafting guilds that compliment each other (I chose Tree Fellers and Herbside Service for Gathering, and Soul Wardens and Merry Potters for my Crafting) - read what each one does and what they craft! A lot of the crafting has time periods, so you can multi-task by queuing your craft orders while questing and doing dungeons. If you do that while you are leveling, you won't be behind. I was unfortunate where I needed materials to level my crafting but I was in the next area, and I had to backtrack (or you have to buy the stuff on the marketplace, which gets expensive) - Get gems! They give a nice boost to your weapon. I use Ruby with additional damage, amethyst with life steal, and ....I can't remember the last one but I think it was like gain HP on block or something (useful for KFM, since they block alot!) Choose gems that compliment your class! (don't get the blocking one if you're a summoner lol) - Save those reinforcement gems for late game! The ones that say they give massive exp to your weapon when you reinforce it. Seriously, they scale and give TONS of exp even on the high level weapons. It gets very expensive around level 38-40 weapons to reinforce, so saving until after that will help alot! That's all I can think of. Have fun! If you are on Mushin server, you can look me up (Name: Ryebread)
  12. Yelled at FOR tanking!?

    Interesting - I didn't know other classes have that many threat-building skills, I thought that was more of a KFM thing since they're melee and rely on blocks/counters, they need to be attacked xD Yeah, I would hope people understand that lol. I switch back and forth, depending on if I want to draw aggro or not. Sometimes I'm lazy and just circle around with higher-damage skills instead of drawing aggro lol.
  13. Yelled at FOR tanking!?

    Have you ever partied with a PvE/Dungeon spec'd KFM? Curious how you're maintaining aggro. With KFM threat skills, I always pull aggro - I can get like 450% additional threat lol.
  14. Downloading repair files

    Try doing a full file repair (click the button at the bottom left of your launcher) If that doesn't work, you can try these steps too: 1) Navigate to your game folder: "'C:\Program Files (x86)\NCSOFT\BnS\bin'" 2) Select local.ini file and right click into properties 3) Make it Read-only
  15. Yeah, it's lucky if it's the first roll - I just don't think anyone on the forums cares.
