  1. I like that false dichotomy: "It's either this crazy ass RNG system or else EVERYONE would get the thing easily!" No place for alternatives like the outfits and adornments having a set (and higher) token cost, meaning the players would know exactly how many times they'll have to run or grind through something before they get what they want. RNG is the crutch of the lazy designer. No idea how to keep your players in-game for more than a few days at a time? Add RNG and appeal to their gambling tastes! Because clearly a system that is completely arbitrary is WAY bett
  2. Well...for starters, OP: 1) A decent game wouldn't keep the Wardrobe functionality hostage behind a subscription (the only thing WORTH ANYTHING there), and costumes would be account-wide by nature instead of requiring a shameless cash-grab consumable to move around. 2) A decent game wouldn't suddenly force the players out of their selected playstyle (PvE, PvP) to continue the progression of their characters at endgame. PvP players can't level up properly without Pve, and PvE players can't upgrade their gear without doing Pvp dailies. 3) A decent game would
  3. Welcome to RNG! It's the lazy developer alternative for actual gameplay!
  4. I think the main problem with the storyline (I haven't been in Silverfrost yet) is that it requires the player to be a blind idiot. Everything is blatant and in your face, but your character acts like a complete imbecile, falling into all the telegraphed traps. This isn't much of a problem in Viridian Coast, since those betrayals are actually handled pretty okay. But it's much worse in the Cinderlands (and gets slightly better in the level 36-45 areas). There you are forced to work for Yonkai, becoming complicit with his atrocities because killing him wouldn't be "the Hongmoon way". You
  5. The game does a pretty bad job at alerting the players that this is a PvP centric game. From the very first moment, Faction quests are NEVER emphasized. Not even Arena quests. They are thrown as side quests and you can't even see the faction ones unless you are wearing your faction outfit (and why would you? To get ganked by overlevelled gentlemen and gentleladies?). But suddenly at certain point at level 50 the game pushed it right in your nostril by making one of the required materials for upgrading a PvP only* reward. And then silly people in the forum PRETEND the players should have known.
  6. I was soloing the Naryu Temple instance because I want the mask that drops from there. While I was there, the Grave Raider outfit dropped. It's Gon only. But worse than that, it's untradeable even with characters of my own account. Why? What am I supposed to do with it? I'm lucky I don't have a Gon alt, but if I had one and this was an outfit I wanted for him, I'd be SERIOUSLY pissed off. Right now I'm just bewildered. Why? What do character-bound outfits acquired in the open world accomplish besides annoying the players off?
  7. NCsoft is too cheap to pay 10 dollars per hour for a GM to check the entrances of instances where all the bots gather for their hourly rituals.
  8. I'm going to go ahead and say that Hujikar's weapon drops are purposedly modified depending on your class to make it MORE UNLIKELY that you will get your class weapon. I farmed it for quite a while with another warlock and a destroyer. We got 0 razors but like 3 weapons for every other class. Meanwhile, the destroyer had 3 razors but no axe. That was a similar experience from when I farmed him with my main character, a destroyer. Every weapon dropped like 3 times each before I saw an axe at all. Outfits and cosmetics just have a very, very low drop chance in the first place.
  9. Bumping this shamelessly because it's still an issue. Using Opera. Need to try five or six times before it actually logs me in.
  10. The game already has account-bound items that can be transfered to other characters in the same account. I see literally no reason to make costumes bound to the account and transferable without requiring a shameless cash-grab consumable (a thing they announced). They are already pretty darn expensive compared to other games that offer you outfits for the same price BUT FOR YOUR WHOLE ACCOUNT.
  11. Hopefully Warlock isn't so low in DPS at endgame that doing dailies or other solo content (like Mushin's Tower) takes significantly longer than other classes. That's going to be a big turn off for people playing the class on their own.
  12. I agree with the OP. Animation canceling would work well if it was a mechanic built into the game (just like how invulnerability skills are) that wasn't spammable. The only thing that keeping it around does is discourage players with higher pings when they are compared with animation-cancelling players who do overall better without actually necessarily being anybetter. It doesn't just affect PvP, either. You can see how players who are capable of animation cancelling are much more effective at beating the various enrage timers of boss fights. Players who can't animation cancel als
  13. Thanks for the suggestions. Sadly, uninstalling the drivers and using DDU to get rid of the remnants before reinstalling did nothing to solve the problem. Luckily I can just turn the graphics down to a minimum (yuck!) and that allows me to play without hiccups.
  14. For reference: I have a GTX660, Windows 7 of 64bits, 16GBs of RAM. I updated to the latest graphic available driver today and since then the screen keeps 'crashing'. It goes completely black and a few seconds later it comes back while a tiny window in the corner tells me the driver failed and had to recover. The last time the driver 'failed' it also froze my computer, requiring a reboot. This is happening VERY often in the Gloomdross Forest area with my warlock, like every three minutes, making the game completely unplayable for me. I have yet to try playing on my higher level char
  15. I had this problem today in Brightstone ruins. Suddenly I could not turn around or move in any direction, but I could still use my skills and chat. Changing the control settings didn't do anything. Once I left the party (and thus got kicked out into the lobby area) I was able to move normally again.
