  1. I recently pugged soguns lament with a mostly lower level party apart from myself and an assasin, we completed the dungeon but at the end of it the sin started going on about "that's why he hates summoners so much" and said that my cat had almost killed him numerous times because the cat gets aggro (even without using taunt) and causes the boss to do an aoe. As i understand it the only time the cat can endanger the melee classes is if it gets marked when the summoner blocks first orb in firesword phase and the mark switches to the cat when seedshroud puts you into stealth, i always recall my cat and run around the edge of the room if i have blocked the first orb or Q him away from the fight to prevent the swords falling at the boss and hitting melee. Is there some other way the cat gets marked that i'm not aware of that would cause the sin to blame my cat that i don't know about?
  2. Blade & Soul Night Luna Premium Bundle

    Thanks for the heads up.
  3. Is leaving the party a new trend?

    You seem to be missing the issue entirely. F8 wasn't designed to be your own personal taxi it's a system designed to put 6 people together to complete a dungeon, so what if it can be done with less people when going with a full party makes it easier and faster and the players then have more time to go on to do other dungeons. As to your full of yourself attitude i have absolutely no need to be carried as i've been playing the game for 2 years and have almost perfect gear and well over 1.2k ap lol, unlike you i have the courtesy to use the physical portals and solo the content when i don't feel like being social instead of screwing around with other peoples time.
  4. Is leaving the party a new trend?

    So it's ok that you don't want to waste the 5/10 seconds on a loading screen to get to zaiwei but the 5 other people who are prepared to go into a dungeon wasting their time to recruit another player is just fine with you huh? As well as the 6th person who had to be recruited then risks missing the first boss and a daily lockout because they take longer to get there because of you. Ever thought that maybe they don't give a damn about your 1.1k ap but would have preferred to just have a 6th player that actually participated?
  5. I'm sorry you had a bad experience over not understanding the moml rule, it's easy to forget that some people who bid may be new players or simply had a lapse of memory and clicked without thinking which is why i always made a point of explaining. The reason people get aggressive is because even after being told there's often someone who will bid regardless. When you use an item/orb for the benefit of the group rather than selling it to use towards upgrading your own character it can be upsetting when your generosity is not appreciated. As people have said repeatedly the orb is worth more than the loot you get at the end anyway. The only thing of value for players who have been around long enough to get the costume etc is a treasure pouch and it's rng whether you'll even get one and if you do it's rng whether you'll get anything better then soulstones/ sacred crystals. The majority of the time the person who provides the orb would have been better off hoarding their orb and waiting for someone else to give in and use theirs, which is honestly kind of a sad way to play a social game. If you can't accept that the loot goes to the person who risks losing money to provide the party with a chance to complete the dungeon than you should solo the dungeon yourself.
  6. I'ts people like the OP who are the reason i solo cold storage and heavens mandate, as much as i'd like to help lower geared players have a nice smooth run through the dungeons to complete their daily challenges i'm tired of the selfishness of the few who ruin it for the many.
  7. For the last couple of months i rarely land on premium spots and when i do it's the return to start "prize" which is usually the one right on the end, meaning i miss out on all of the better items at the end of the daily dash. I'ts more of a punishment for premium users than an asset.
  8. NCs stance on ping boosters is that they do not support them but they don't forbid them. They won't help with issues that arise from ping boosters interfering with the game and there is a small chance of your account being banned if it gets caught up in a sweep done to get rid of bots/gold spammers etc that might be using the same ping booster server you are. In the past when that's happened the people who got wrongfully banned were able to recover their account though. I've been using either wtfast or pingzapper without any issues for about 2 years.
  9. I've posted before that i believe that event dungeons should have to include doing the mechanics and not just burning through with pure dps so it's nice to see this one has actual mechanics however an event dungeon shouldn't be difficult to the point that it's only worth doing with clan/static groups instead of being able to join a pug group and risk an excessive amount of time/wipes to complete it. I've played since launch so as happy as i am to see Poh have some time in the spotlight again the dungeon should have been recreated to be the same as it was back then with HP and gear that was accurate to that time and not nerfed on the player side and buffed on the boss side to such extremes. Yes it's nice to have mechanics but it's boring to have to spend too long chopping away at a massive boss hp bar. Oh and the rewards for the amount of effort you need to put in to this event dungeon are definitely not up to par.
  10. Unfortunately forming parties with friends/guildies for peach farming isn't really efficient because everyone gets their own random set of peach quests. You could try sending party invites to people you see going after the same mobs as you, it can be faster and less competition for mobs if you make a number of short term parties for peach farming.
  11. What bothers me about the new premium

    I'm disappointed but not really surprised that the new premium is underwhelming, if they had really wanted to make more of their player base happy to pay a monthly subscription they would have scrapped ALL the ridiculous taxes eg; pet glamour, mail fees and the rest of the marketplace fees. The HM coin you get isn't even enough to purchase one of the cheapest outfits in the store once a month and to make it worse if you actually want the premium box of stuff each day you need to pay 30nc or 30hm to purchase it so not only are you not really getting free coin each day you're losing 15 a day for the "perk" of opening a premium rng box. They haven't addressed the lack of bank tabs which obviously should have been added as a premium perk or even opened the existing locked spaces in the bank. At the very least all existing spaces should be automatically unlocked while premium is active. The last issue that annoys me the most is that they have not boosted the HM level experience that premium subs get, even if you complete 40/40 dailys and the weekly raids your hm exp bar barely moves at all. The only ones who are going up in HM levels are the people who spend huge sums of money on buying gold to purchase sacred orbs/soulstones to make the 5 mil charms. Now that they don't have my outfits held hostage i'll be using the 2 months of premium they so "generously" gave me for reaching lvl10 and than no more paying a sub that i don't find value for money.
  12. Monthly subscription value for money

    Advantages like peach bonus, lower upgrade fees, lower market fees, extra xp, extra gold etc can be helpful if you're still getting your character to endgame but it starts losing value after you have your character maxed. You wont need the reduced upgrade fees after you have your gear finished, the extra xp doesn't help a lot when you need such huge amounts of xp for hm levels and the extra gold you get isn't all that outstanding. The zen bean/battlepoint bonus is still good if you enjoy pvp and the peach bonus can still be useful if you farm the peaches for treasure pouch mats after you have your badge/ss etc. If you don't bother with changing weapon/pet skins much than you won't need to worry about the high fees for that either. I don't change mine at all because i think it's ridiculous to be charged fees as a premium player. About the only 2 reasons i keep my sub is because of the remote storage access and the wardrobe but i can honestly say i don't think premium as it is is worth the money. NC staff have said on the stream that a new premium model will be coming soon with unlocked showroom for all players and free hm coins each day for premium users, i really hope they make the new premium worth the money.
  13. Loot auction noob help

    No worries :) It's easy to forget that not everyone understands and there is also a portion of the population who just does not care for social niceties and bids anyway. Oh and by the way MOML means my orb my loot.
  14. Loot auction noob help

    It's kind of a player made rule that in cold storage or heavens mandate the loot belongs to the person who puts the orb in. It's considered a courtesy to pass on the loot because you would not have been able to participate without someone being generous enough to provide the orb for the whole party. If the white orb is in the loot table and is used after killing the first boss in cold storage than it is fine to bid on the loot for the second boss otherwise pass on the second boss's loot if someone puts thier own orb in.
  15. In previous years you got your standard amount with the box but then had to bid against others for the extra mushrooms in the end of dungeon box, i much prefer this then having to waste gold bidding for them. I do the event on 10 characters and it's pretty convenient when there's some high geared people to make it go faster but honestly i also think it's pointless to have these events where you can completely ignore the mechanics of the dungeon and just burn it down instead. I'm glad that you don't lose mushrooms if you have bad luck with your party setup but at the same time it means that impatient people won't wait for everyone to load in and there are some players that just stand at the entrance and don't even bother trying at all.
  16. Mine are still bugged every day since day 2 but i can always get them eventually, start trying a couple of hours before reset at 10 EST and make sure you don't use pingzapper/mouse/keyboard software when you go to retrieve them. I wonder if the bug happens more often to people who live in different timezones but my housemate has only had the issue once while i have it every day so who knows.
  17. HM skill with Special elixirs

    You can purchase all of the ingredients you need for the hongmoon skill apart from the hongmoon pellet from the npc in celestial basin with peaches. Or you could farm the mobs that drop the items but it would probably take much longer than farming the peaches. Here's a link on where to farm the mobs that drop the ingredients;
  18. 'There no obtainable rewards' L o L

    I've had the same issue since day 2 of the login rewards being implemented, i can get the login rewards but not until about an hour before they reset again so i'm wondering if there's some kind of cooldown involved. Some of the things i've tried to troubleshoot the issue are; - disabling everything that's not part of the operating system in msconfig - not using pingzapper/mouse/keyboard software (including while accumulating the login rewards) - running cc cleaner - turning windowns game bar off - running repairs on launcher I play from Australia and i wondered if it had something to do with playing in a different timezone but my housemate also plays BnS and has been able to accept login rewards properly apart from once.
  19. You can purchase all of the missed costumes and accessories from npcs in each region, Jadestone, Yeharas Mirage, Hogshead Hamlet, Zaiwei are the ones i can think of for now. Most of them are near a wheel of fate.
  20. Where can i buy NCoin cards? (AUS)

    You can get them from Electronics Boutique. They weren't around for the last 9 months but they've recently restocked new ones with BnS on the card.
  21. After this latest patch my crit has gone from 65% to 54% and i'm wondering whether it would be worth using the masterwork shield base bundles to boost the crit on my msp set (they're already maxed with blue crit bases) or whether i should switch to BT set and max those instead until i can eventually get into VT. Earth Summoner - 200-300 ping Riftwalk weapon, Alluvion soul badge, Enigma mystic badge I would appreciate some advice on this please ^_^
  22. If i remember they did say that the other mats would be reduced by about 15% and the emp stones would be halved, i forgot to check before i upgraded. Did they not reduce the costs after all?
  23. Making them bound to account would make it even harder for people to gear thier characters if they then had to compete with whales gearing up a bunch of alts, at least this system is need over greed. If you really want the items on an alt you should have to run it on that alt. It would be a good idea to have a way to exchange a legendary drop for the one which suits your build better though, on some of my guild runs legendaries don't even get picked up because they don't suit anyone's build which is a waste.
  24. Showroom/wardrobe

    I'm glad to see they're finally making the wardrobe free for all, they will make more outfit sales from people who don't buy them currently because they don't wish to clutter up thier limited inventory space. You're correct though that they will need to make premium much more attractive then it is now, a good start would be getting rid of a lot of the annoying fees in the game. If you purchase premium there should be no marketplace taxes, changing weapon/pet skin fees and fees for crafting and gear upgrading should be reduced further. It looks like they are addressing the issue of the insane amount of experience you need for HM levels with the new login rewards system that gives you xp charms however the extra rewards they said premium gets would need to be really worth the price of paying for a monthly sub. Premium would also be a lot more desireable if they unlocked all inventory/bank slots while subbed, it annoys me to see a large chunk of my bank still unusable 2 years into the game
  25. Here's hoping that there won't be as many of the idiots who have zero patience for waiting for the rest of the party to load in and think its faster to hit the potdog and run ahead this year lol
