  1. Hi all,

    I know babbles said on stream they were still looking at ways to improve premium, so I want to to start a discussion on it with my own:   Remote mail.  I know alot of us send gems between alts for event trains and such, so I'd imagine not having to go to a bank to send mail would be a nice convenience feature without being game breaking or overly advantageous vs F2P.  Please feel free to add your own ideas or thoughts below.

    This simply MUST be referring to situations where the summoner is out-geared, correct? Because, from what I can witness, cats have plenty of survivability and health to not die in 2-3 hits. Am I wrong here? If the cat was going to die to burst in 2-3 hits then the summoner certainly would die in around 2-3 hits as well, and then that just means the summoner is out-geared in the situation.


    Can anybody else confirm or deny that cats are extraordinarily fragile?



    (Sudden shift of topic, and I'd like a response please:) Does anybody else think it would be a good idea for me to copy this thread over into the PvP section? It'd be re-named to "Perfect Imbalance" so that people don't see the "Overpowered" word and avoid the post entirely.

    This is probably referring to gunners with 3-8 set aransu shields, and I can confirm that fire gunner at that gear level will delete pretty much anyone with tab.  That being said the nerfs to their absurd burst are already coming down the pipeline, so there's not really a point fixating on it.

  3. for example:   IIRC ATM we have a solid community filled with LOLs, and BTW IK this is obnoxious and people might tell me to kms, but hopefully someone will have a TIL moment 


    Translation:   If I remember correctly, at the moment we have a solid community filled with laughing out loud, and by the way I know this is obnoxious and people might tell me to kill my self, but hopefully someone will have a today I learned moment.

  4. Astarae, your entitlement is frankly astounding- have some consideration for your participation in the community as a whole.  HM has NOTHING that can recoup the value of an orb- no crazy drops, just the requirement of running it for a daily.  And as others have already said, your mentality is what further cements anyone with half decent gear as soloing it themselves. This isn't just about the loot, it's about respect for someone who gave something of value for you to benefit off.  Grow up a bit and think outside yourself for a second.

  5. I'm of two minds about it- first off, I don't think VT should be nerfed; it's current endgame content, so that's a good spot for it's difficulty level.  HOWEVER, I do think the point at which VT gets nerfed should also include adding the badge in some form to a comparable difficulty 6 man dungeon, and here's why.  Raiding is an artificial barrier to participation due to time constraints and logistics; if you want the newest and best gear gated behind a raid instead of a difficult dungeon initially, go for it.  But I think part of the nerf process all content goes through as it becomes 2nd tier should include logistical even more so than difficulty nerfs.   At the end of the day, games are a business, not a charitable service, and if you gate content away from people who may be both geared and skilled, but lack the time for a raid (due to, I dunno, the job that allows them to pay into the game) the game is doing itself a disservice.  it wouldn't be that hard to implement a punishing "hell mode" or something similar for 1 or 2 top tier 6mans, which could have raid-level loot tables at a reduced drop rate, but not require such a sizeable block of time in one sitting.

  6.     So...I'll try and give some constructive input on this since I've pretty much no-lifed summoner since beta- so sue me, I like cats.   Summoner's bad rep stems primarily from it having a pretty low skill floor: that is to say, you can pretty much sleep through bronze, low silver and most of mid silver.  But as others can testify to, once you start hitting around high silver and gold, that whole "wtf 2 enemies I dunno what to do gaaaaah" advantage pretty much goes out the window, and you need to be super on top of your game to progress in pvp at that point. You arent gonna cheese wins against a KFM or destro that just counterplays any "hold RMB" type play.  So what you end up with is a distorted skill curve, where you start baseline at maybe a 4 out of 10, vs other classes starting at a 1 or 2, but to truly hang with the big boys of pvp you need to be multiclassed into trainer and beastmaster to quell the ADD five year old that is your cat.   PVE wise I think it's nicely balanced, with middling damage and decent utility.  Just dont tell your cat if the boss gives punishment stacks, it'll seek them out like catnip.

    TL DR is the class is fine- it's probably one of the more middle of the road classes in terms of not overly excelling or failing in any cat-egory, but doing decently in most.  

  7. The only publicly posted official word I've seen on reversions was posted when they first changed the upgrade costs for legendary weapons, which stated any reversions would need to have been within a 7 day window of any announced changes. That being said, that was a while ago, and may not apply to any and all requests, but that's all I could find for clearly stated stuff.

  8. The art in BNS is based on designs by Korean artist and character designer Hyung Tae Kim, who is usually regarded as an anime artist, though as his work encompasses more games than actual anime, I suppose it's a definition open to debate.  I say look up his other work (Magna Carta series, Original art pieces) and draw your own conclusions if you want to really pin down how you want to define it.

    I'm fairly certain it'd be gunner, considering the picture we're speaking about is just a gun anyway. it'd probably backfire on them for it to be otherwise since the picture is, well, a gun. LOL

    Backfire? Gun? Get it? eh hehehe.......I'll just....walk away....

  10. So, I've always resigned myself to not being at maxxed gear, that's fine- I've enjoyed the game since beta, and am around 940ap. I can run most stuff besides BT (due to time constraints with being a parent.)  But this patch has left me with a sour taste I haven't had since I quit Tera after playing that for 3 years intensely.  Sure, the gap between the players who have premium and spend a few bucks here and there and the whales has definitely been growing, but this just feels like a point of no return; where all soul related resources have been pidgeonholed towards cash shop, and the gem changes are a pointless slap in the face to everyone.  

             I honestly don't know about continuing- yes I could continue grinding out dailies/events/whatever, but what the game presents as progression at this point, as well as the message being sent to players about how they are viewed is frankly nauseating.  It's not even a F2P/P2P whatever argument now, it just feels insulting on a basic level, and that's an impressive accomplishment.   I'm curious if I'm alone in this, and if you guys are still having fun, how do you reconcile the attitudes of those behind the game with your own feelings about the direction BnS is being taken in?


  11. After playing MMOs for years, I can say one thing- large raids are simply not conducive to the current player base.  Consider this- mmos operate off the idea of people spending money.   What is usually required for said money?  why a job. Those going to work 5-7 days a week simply cannot afford to spend 5-10 hours wiping in  a raid group.  This isnt a matter a of p2w/f2p/bla bla bla, it's a matter of having content that realistically caters to your target audience.  if you want to target those with a stable income and the means to spend their expendable income on this game, You need to present content that can be accessed in reasonably timed increments, namely after work.
