  1. Accented names

    In other games I've been able to paste them in, but in B&S I had to actually use the alt code (hold down alt and type the code).
  2. I hope that's the case...and that the original version will be available at some point. I myself wouldn't buy the altered one, especially knowing it was altered. Very true. But...on the launch stream on Twitch, they asked the Art Director from Korea about bringing the game to other regions. His response was translated as: "For U.S., a lot of people wanted some sexual, um, they didn't like any sexual discrimination on the costumes, or, like, what they look like, so he had to work on the artwork for that." (That's at about 02:05:30 in the twitch stream.) Maybe we're starting to see the results of that... EDIT: Since it looks like that twitch stream is gone from the archives, here it is on youtube.
  3. Good point. And the other thing is: it's not like the current lip syncing for english is that great to begin with. To me they seem un-synced enough that originally, I assumed we had the Korean mouth movements with english audio. (Which gave it a bit of an authentic dubbed martial arts movie feel, but...I'd rather have the original voices.) So I was really surprised when she said that.
  4. Julianne answered that in a fairly recent stream. She said it was doubtful they would ever add the original voices because the lip sync wasn't set up for them, and without that it wouldn't meet their standards of quality. Which I don't really get, since the lip sync must be set up in the Korean version, so I would think just bring that over too, and use whichever one goes with the language people select.
  5. Also on the Naryu Labyrinth livestream the other week, they took this question (would the wig be added to the store) and they said they wouldn't rule it out.
  6. Oh, nice. I just came to ask about that, since I didn't see the head pieces in the adornment section. The fact that they're bundled isn't too obvious in the store itself, at least to me.
  7. Show off your characters!!

    More over in the BladeAndSoulDojo 'Share your THICK characters!' thread!
  8. Another RNG box in the cash shop

    It's extremely good to know that this will eventually be available in a non-gambling box fashion. I don't mind the gambling boxes as long as there's another way to get the stuff from them. (Though I think a better alternative would be to make them tradeable so they could be sold/bought on the AH...but this is better than nothing.) Aside from that: for me, the bright side is that I don't want this costume anyway. The non-bright side is that with the precedent of the padded coat, I was hoping gambling box outfits would be restricted to the non-lore ones, which never interest me...but I guess not.
  9. I'd definitely buy it from the store. Ever since I saw it on a youtube video from one of the other regions before launch, that became THE defining haistyle for my Destroyer...back then I didn't even know it was a dungeon drop. That...does sound really bad. I mean, I don't mind running a dungeon multiple times to get it, but if it becomes ridiculous...interest will be lost. But since they put the gangplank wig in the store, no real reason not to add this one.
  10. White Items for Glamor?

    Yeah, I really wish we could use ANY weapon for glamour. I even really like the look of some of the starting/training weapons.
  11. Weapon skins from merchants

    Yeah, it would really be nice if all weapons could be used to reskin. Even the starting ones.
  12. Widow hairstyles

    They're not in the wardrobe, so that's suspicious. I'd pay cash for it in a heartbeat too. However, I believe the version that drops also matches to your hair color - for example, on the stream, Julianne had the blue wig, but put it on a blonde character and it was blonde.
  13. Characters under 10 can use emwotes again! Nice.
  14. Yun Warlock Petition!

    Yeah, I'd really like Warlock to be open to yun. I was planning on making a yun warlock the whole time...until I found out they couldn't be warlocks.
  15. Really? Interesting. I would have thought NC would have touted that. It would be interesting to have an official confirmation or denial.
  16. Show off your characters!!

  17. NA/EU only class Gunslinger ?

    I agree...I'd like a non-magic ranged class, and to me Archer fits the wuxia setting better. Though given the existence of Soha, apparently gunslingers wouldn't be totally out of place in this particular world.
  18. Please do RNG boxes right

    I think a huge factor in doing gambling boxes right is: Make everything from them tradeable. (See TERA and SWTOR.)
  19. My issue with stuff in gambling boxes is not that it's difficult or impossible to get without paying real money. It's that they're difficult or impossible to get even with paying real money. You can spend thousands and thousands of dollars and not get it. (Of course it's also impossible to get them in any non-real-money way.)
  20. Will you quit B&S IF

    Exactly. I didn't mind the gambling boxes in TERA and SWTOR, because I could buy the stuff from them in the AH. I still spent a lot of money in the cash shop in order to sell stuff and get gold to make those purchases. But I didn't have to gamble.
  21. Will you quit B&S IF

    If they put a costume that I wanted in a gambling box...yeah, that might be the end for me. If there's an item I like, and there's no way to get it without spending hundreds of dollars, then the game just seems pointless. The bright side to me about the padded coat gambling box is that I have no interest in that costume. I generally don't care about 'non-lore' costumes like that, and the valentine's one, the sailing one or whatever, etc. So if they put those, or other costumes I don't want, in gambling boxes, I don't mind.
  22. New RNG Box in Shop!

    Neither did SWTOR. But the way SWTOR and TERA did their gambling boxes, they could make money from two types of players: the gamblers who enjoy opening the boxes, and the non-gamblers who just want to buy exactly what they want. (Buy cash shop items with real money, sell in the AH for gold, use it to buy gambling box outfits in the AH.) The way it is in this game, with the outfits not being tradeable, they can only make money from one type of player.
  23. New RNG Box in Shop!

    Another big factor that made it bearable in SWTOR was that people could sell (and buy) stuff from the boxes in the AH.
  24. New RNG Box in Shop!

    I'm sure it would take me $500. At LEAST. So...yeah, not worth it. If you really want the costume, then gambling boxes are not for you. They're for people who just find it fun to open them and see what they get, but aren't after anything in particular.
