  1. Yeah, yeah, I know that the fragments are trade-able and I can mail it around, yada, yada, but that is not a good reason why a whole orb is not account-bound. It is not like a house where part of it can be transported by a truck, but a whole house cannot. It is a freaking orb. In addition, I noticed by accident when pulling an orb out of the Ascension Pouch, which also contains HM/CS reset that those resets are also not account-bound. I don't remember if the previous separated HM and CS resets were account-bound or not, but considering you have raid resets like BT/VT/TT being accou
  2. Some dungeons/raids get their previous nerf reverted: -Bubble blocking is back to Numok in Drowning Deeps. Nothing special, cuz people do it non-bubble anyway. -Pillar drops is back to Rukesh in Sandstorm Temple. Instant wipe/heavy damage if pillar get explodes, depend on difficulty. -Bug bomb is back Hive Queen in Temple of Elevium. Instant kill people in middle if the baiter doesn't move away fast after every knockdown. -etc. While it provides some challenges, especially to players who never learn to deal with these mech, the revert seems to be uncalled
  3. Just upgrade it. You have chance to roll more, not less. Even if you are unlucky, buying Gem Hammers are not that expensive.
  4. Clear your mail box so the voucher will appear in the first page. Or nag support doing so.
  5. Whales have nothing they want from this dungeons, lol. The best they just try it once then never touch it again. Only people who cares about obsidian, EXP charms and maybe some cheap cosmetics want to do this once per day. And they are people who suffer.
  6. 20 boxes. Nothing so far, but it fills up my collection. I get like 10 outfits for two characters within 2,000 HMcoin, so not bad I guess. Rosethorn cat is dirty cheap on F5, so if you are a summoner want to groom your cat, don't seek for it from these boxes, except when you need fabric for full set :D Rosethorn outfit is available on F5. Just wait a whiles if you are not keen with RNG to buy it. Also, do not mail bind-on-equip outfits. They cost stamps, while you can just do a proxy trade for free. Rosethorn Fabric is bound-to-account, so just g
  7. Only during Valentine event, I believe. It will come back around Valentine next year. Bonus :3
  8. As long as it is not exactly the outfits that are exclusive to founders only (Quick Draw and Transcendence), NCWest never breaks their promise to never release these outfits, even if they release a recolor of these outfits. And the recolor outfit is not as good as the founder's one, anyway.
  9. They make us do the three weekly quests, cuz the whole games only have those as three weekly quests. If you want to count the serious raid like BT, you have three more weekly quests to do, but only raid-minded players can do it. Weekly challenge should be something like something more diverse than just complete a quest: +Grind 2,000,000 EXP +Complete 100 daily quests +Grind 30,000 peaches. Excessive peaches can be turned into EXP charms. This works well with the EXP grind objective. +Grind 10,000 Zen bean/Battle Points. They can be used to turn into soulstones/m
  10. How about just make: -Normal Wardrobe for F2P players. The need the stamps to send outfit around. -Premium Wardrobe for Premiumship players. They can send their outfits without stamps. Gated this in like Rank 7+ That way, you encourage F2P players to buy outfits, since they have a Wardrobe to store their outfits. Additionally, you also encourage players to go premiumship and spend more Ncoin/Hmcoin for free outfit delivery, if they want to shuffle their outfit collections between alts in daily basis. If you don't want premium players have it free, you can hal
  11. They cannot find themselves raging at you when you are only an Eye :P
  12. Yet another outfit get stuffed in a RNG Box. It will certainly appear later in some kind of special sales/events, like what they are doing with Spring Breeze While Shadow Phoenix certainly looks decent, the RNG factor greatly discourage me from buying the boxes. I don't care how much Sacred Oil and Premium Stones that I may luckily win from this RNGfest. What I, as an outfit collector, want is the outfit, and only the outfit. I'm ready to spend 2,000 coins just to get it. But I won't spend a penny to try out my luck with outfit. So yeah, why not add a way that encourage
  13. It is an old pic in CN server. And no, it is not Sacred Oil. CN server uses a lot of different materials compared to other region. It is its own game and cannot be used as a reference.
  14. It is not the duration of the Capturing Timer. It is the countdown for next Capturing, which used to be 10 minutes after a Battle Phase ended by killing Captains/having Battle timer running out. So yeah, this increases waiting time for SSP farmers, thus affecting soulstone/moonstone/evolved stone supply. The new soul upgrade requires a disgusting amount of oils. And NCSoft makes it even harder to farm evolved stones by phasing out Blackwyrm/Misty Woods terror, and now increase the waiting time for Capturing in SSP.
  15. From what I know: -Desolate Tomb: First boss no wipe if you kill wives. Third boss has no lightning orbs and get overloaded only cause damage. -Ebondrake: not sure. It is too easy that we can just run Hard Mode. -Naryu Foundry: First boss only spawns two flowers now, and both of them cause damage on the boss. -Naryu Sanctum: not yet check it so not sure. But Xanos should not bother to do the marking phase anymore. -Irontech Forge: Fail in mechanic only result in prolonged fight, or maybe a few deaths. You can skip mechanic with whale DPS.
  16. The Golden Lotus outfit itself is ugly. But they have Spring Breeze... So yeah *grab the piggy bank*
  17. It is cool that we can earn outfits at 30-50% discount of their normal price. However, the way NCWest selects the outfit for these Daily Specials is kinda disappointing. While it is not possible to please everyone, at least try to please a majority of customers. Aside from Devotion, other outfits selected for the deal receives negative response from players. Putting how poor NCWest selects the outfit aside, I think the idea is good and should be improved for better customer experience and boost F10 sales: -Put older outfit, especially event/box ones, on Daily Speci
  18. Yunsang looks promising as an Evolved Stone dropper. No need to add 10- or 100-bundle. Just make him drop one stone per run. 25 runs and you have enough for one oil. Tower of Infinity's reward boxes should have a chance to drop moonstone/evolved stone too. Maybe at Lootbox stage 5-6, equal to floor 61+ Daily Challenges reward. 6v6 loot boxes.
  19. Three methods: -Grind in game. No-life it. If you work 8 hours, and play for 8 hours, you still have 8 hours for your real life -Grind in life. Work 10 hours, use extra money you gain from 2 hours overworking to buy Ncoin and trade them to gold. Play game 6 hours. You still have 8 hours for real life. -Swipe it. Buy Ncoin and trade for gold. Stop working. Play game 16 hours per day. You stll have 8 hours for real life.
  20. The cost of the following items from Celestial Peach Exchanger NPC Lee Youjin in Celestial Basin has been reduced: Xanos Disc Forging Orb Taikhan's Skin Stone of Wisdom Flower of Lament The following items are now bound to account: Ocean Life Force Deep Sea Kelp Golden Honey Fog Mushroom Evil Spirit Root Hongmoon Pellet Retrieved Hongmoon Secret Technique - Volume 1 Retrieved Hongmoon Secret Technique - Volume 2 Retrieved Hongmoon Secret Technique - Volume 3 Chilling Flame Elixir Royal Ze
  21. While powerful upgrade is an eventually thing, I think NCSoft is doing it wrong. They try to make players feel powerful by throwing big and costly upgrade. Sure, you will have breakthrough in your DPS if you can afford it. Sure, you can make it a long-term project that last for months, where you will gradually obtain. You're behind whales and no-lifers, but you still obtain them regardless. The desire to rush things of players is what make NCSoft rich. However, it is very discouraging if you show how expensive it is right of the bat. Unless whale and no-lifers, players
  22. Fun thing is that 6v6 is the main supply of moonstones now. Since soul upgrade will be the thing, I'm not surprised if they throw in a few evolved stones in 6v6 in order to encourage people feeding whales, so that they can buy evolved stones from them
  23. They are letting Garena running BnS Thai and incoming Vietnam. As a Vietnamese who knows Garena's reputation, I'm waiting for lulz and giggles from their services :P
