  1. So Many Broken Promises, It's Time to Go

    I think that the whole thing they've written in that "Our Philosophy" paragraph was merely a dream. I think it's not completely fair to blame NCSoft for trying to make a profit with their product. What we get is the result of the plague called "free 2 play". The market is pushing game publishers to go f2p because of the strong competition. If they won't go f2p they simple won't get enough players unless it's really popular brand. But even if they go f2p they still need to make enough money to pay the costs and make the profit. Because that's why they released the game in the first place. But the cosmetics only won't motivate ppl to spend as much money as items that will actually push you through game progress or give you some kind of advantage. So you have to make a choice: You can cut the costs of development and/or costs of running resulting in trash game. Or you can sell the "p2w" items to make more money. Actually I think there are much bigger problems than P2W items. 1) The players can't trust what NCWest say about game changes. - They've said that we would be able to exchange the white orbs, hm/cs resets and demon spirit stones for their new counterparts when they were going to remove them. Many players lost a lot of those because they've trusted what they said. The compensation for that mistake was a mockery because it was nowhere near the value of what ppl lost. - They've promise that they would make sure to give players more than enough time in advance if they were going to remove badge exchane (see the quote below). Yet they only announced it in patch notes right before the patch. I don't mind the removal of exchange itself just the fact that they haven't let players know in time. 2) They treat some bugs as "working as intended". For example the new AP achievement for hard mode DST, BC, WC dungs. The previous HM achievements counted runs retroactively and even this one counted the DST runs retroactively. Only BC/WC counter was bugged. Yet they annoucned that the achievement was not supposed to be retroactive.
  2. Why is this a thing?

    I don't think it's a stupid thing. The limit allowed to give more vials to players who can't complete event on that many alts while not giving too many vials to those who can do event on 11 chars. On the other side the players who can do event on 11 chars will get the worthy rewards because thay can get pet packs with the rest of coins.
  3. Why is this a thing?

    But you can only blame yourself for that. The limits were described in the article that announced event and i think they've mentioned them in the update preview stream. It is also visible when you open the event currency exchange tab in dragon express. It's not that the limits were somehow hidden to make everyone waste their event currency.
  4. Why is this a thing?

    I don't understand why anyone sees the limit as problem. With 11 chars you can farm 3344 outlaw coins if you run everything that gives them. During event itself and the redeeming period (4+4 weeks) the limits allow you to get: 40 sacred vials = 2200 outlaw coins 80 pet packs = 2000 outlaw coins Yes, you can't use all the coins to get sacred vials but you can still spend them effectively by getting the pet packs with the rest of coins.
  5. Skystone and Tab

    Tab will allow you to use bullet storm but only if two conditions are met: 1) you have 5 explosive rounds ready (using tab will automaticaly give you 5 of them, using reload during tombstone will also give you 5 of them and later you will be able to choose tombstone spec that automatically gives 5 rounds with last hit of bulletstorm) 2) the target has debuff from crossfire (skill on 4) Skystone is good in PvP to buy you some time. Its usage in PvE is situational and you won't be using it that often. You definitively don't want to use it to do dmg. You shouldn't use it at all during leveling cause mobs will reset when you get on it.
  6. Obsidian gems (event+)

    @DittzeWL The solar energy is not the only source of obsidians. Transcendence Engine can be exchanged for pentagonal obsidian. It can drop in Naryu Sanctum. Awakened Transcendence Engine can be exchanged for hexagonal obsidian. I'm not sure if this drops in Irontech Forge, Ebondrake Lair or both of them. Imperial Mark can be exchange for heptagonal obsidian. It can drop in Ransacked Treasury. 60 tokens from circle of sundering can be exchange for heptagonal obsidian. Demon Fang can be exchanged for octagonal obsidian. It can drop in Dreamsong Theater. Also in next update the exchange for solar energy is going to be changed. We will get a pentagonal obsidian for 10 solar energy instead of square one.
  7. Blade & Soul: Scarlet Tears Arrives May 15

    No. Obsidian/garnets will be in their own box that will be obtainable through RNG boxes. But they said the drop rates for obsidians/garnets should be increased. Also we will be able to get pentagonal obsidian for 10 solar energy instead of square one.
  8. @Gman You can use buyback tab at any npc shop/dragon express if you haven't quit the game or changed the character yet.
  9. Gunslingers the weakest pvp class

    I would gladly watch some. Can you send me a link to some stream of gunner who is in top 50 in 1v1 rating in EU? Oh wait... there was no gunner in top 50 for last 3 seasons.
  10. Question about Martial Tome for ForceMaster

    It did exist. At some point FM had awakened dragonchar or awakened blazing beam based on what skill they've speced. But most FM's changed spec to dragonchar when they had WL in group so awakened blazing beam was removed pretty soon.
  11. Moon Refuge quest as 10th daily challenge.

    That's not a problem. There are two limits for number of ppl in channel. When the soft limit is reached, the new incoming people are sent to other channel and you can't change into the channel by yourself. But the party members are still allowed to join party leader's channel (that's what "taxi" uses). When hard limit is reached noone can join the channel so even taxi won't work anymore.
  12. Legends Reborn Event is Diabolical

    That's not true. For example unity stones give significant stats boost but the only source of legendary skill stones (from sparkling ore box) was the trove. Also while you can get legendary radiance stones by combining superior and heroic stones, the amount of them you could get by this point as F2P player at this point is limited (because daily limit for CS/HM). At this point as F2P player you simply cannot reach as high set bonus from unity stones as someone who got them from trove even if you played nonstop since awakening patch.
  13. Legends Reborn: Item and Systems Preview

    Well, it's said that the weapon cores will also be in these new chests in the latest patch notes. I guess communication works well in NC...
  14. I think they do backup more often than once per week. You don't rly need to shutdown the game to make backup. But there are other things you need to do regulary. For example applying updates to OS and then running tests to check that everything is ok.
  15. 64-bit client suddenly low fps capped

    If your FPS problems started after some crash, the Fault Tolerant Heap might be the reason behind them. There is how to check what applications are using FTH and how to disable it. https://discourse.paraview.org/t/potential-ms-windows-10-performance-hit-due-to-fth/405
