  1. Please reconsider the upcoming F8 gold nerfs

    I sincerely hope this decision is reversed to an extent @Hime. Endgame players will end up being fine but new players and mid-game players are going to be so hard hit by this. At the very least put forward adding a 5/5/10g reward for completing 3/5/7 DC so that people are able to maintain some sort of gold income. It is already so overwhelming to get started in this game. Making these changes absolutely puts no incentive/motivation for new players and mid-game players to continue playing. The lower tier dungeons are not run by older players and if they are, theyre done solo. New players mostly cannot solo them and the playerbase doesnt run them cutting people off from a large portion of dungeons and whatever small amount of gold they'd receive from it. Does NCSoft really not care about maintaining it's product anymore? There's so much that can be done to improve the game for players and increase profits for NCSoft that would not require much effort, why is it that NCSoft does not want to even look into this? At the very least if they have no clue as to what to do (which I suspect is very much the case), come to the playerbase for suggestions. There people out here who are able to think critically and objectively and give suggestions that wouldnt hurt the bottomline.
  2. No free keys for premium this time?

    What exactly is the point to us purchasing anything if they're just going to screw us every time with something else? What's next? Trove next month won't have any free keys for premiums either? What exactly are they losing here giving paying customers free keys a day? Who is in charge of monetization at this game? This idea that this will push more people into spending is an absolute joke and wishful thinking. Every negative change we get is always attached with this idea that somehow this will make NCSoft more money and it never does, earnings are always dropping. Wonder why that is (hint: performance isn't the only reason). How about this for a suggestion to pass along @Hime: hire someone who actually knows how to monetize the game. Btw treasure draw has a gilded triangle chest instead of square like it's supposed to be in the rank1 chest. Good joke.
  3. Theyre able to bypass f2 key check (maybe even market). Locking xml would most likely hold them off for a few days until they figure out how to unlock the files. At this point, I assume the only way to fix this situation would be moving everything server side. And as I said previously, there are edits and mods that make the game playable aka be able to play it. I know people who literally cannot raid due to FPS issues without using animation removals etc. Completely locking people out from these options will also negatively impact the health of the game.
  4. But they've shown in the past that they can work around the XML with the GCD edit (just not as many people realized what was going on back then). I do agree that this is a pretty critical situation. They should just incorporate the qol edits into their client. If we're able to do it on our own, then why cant they just take the initiative and adopt it directly for everyone?
  5. The xml edits we're seeing right now were done without BnSBuddy. Russia banned BnSBuddy and they just made another program to replace it and xml edits are still going on. What will likely happen is the same as when the GCD xml edit was happening: removing the possibility of using these edits. There are xml edits and mods out there that make the game playable for majority of people (see: windwalk effect removal for BG crashing, animation removal for FPS in raids etc). If NCSoft were to ban everyone using qol xml edits, you'd lose the majority of your playerbase as well as a huge chunk of paying customers. I doubt that'll happen. What's more concerning is that theyre able to change other people's F2, it means all the web-based stuff could be compromised.
  6. Dungeon Difficulty Update

    You said you were lowering the HP of bosses and increasing player defenses. Where is that change exactly? What a shocker that nothing is going to be changed.
  7. Anything but Fun

    What content exactly are you having issues with? This patch gave everyone more damage while mobs remained the exact same level and stats. The only two places that have changed are Mandate and Cold Storage, which can still be cleared quite easily even by lfping into the dungeon. Or maybe Im just understanding you wrong.
  8. This right here. Not only does this discourage new or returning players, but current players as well. With the upcoming soul/heart/pet tiers, it will seem impossible to even attain all these items in a reasonable amount of time and people will stop trying.
  9. @Hime @Cyan (And Youmukon because it wont let me link you for whatever reason) Please bring our feedback regarding the Nova/Talisman/Brain/Whatever costs as it is beyond ridiculous. 370 pet pods while regular pet already costs an absurd amount is extremely reaching. Isn't it enough that whales will be troving for their gilded dyad squares? Is the KR team so out of touch with this community that they choose to make terrible decisions like this or do they just not care anymore? Why couldnt the costs be made similar to heart with an increased emphasis on blackstones, silver scales & onyx scales to ensure people continue to run dungeons for it? I seriously hope they re-consider these costs especially when theyre going to be able to milk people once new tiers of heart (1 tier), soul (2 tiers) and pet (1 tier) are released. The majority of the playerbase is unhappy and will remain unhappy. I thought the hope of this patch was to try and bring in more players, not drive even more people away. The collection system was a step in the right direction, why take 2 steps back? To anyone who has to say that this doesnt have to be a day 1 upgrade, please re-think even saying that to me because it is not a valid point. Whales will day 1 this while the majority of players will NEVER obtain this item because they cant afford it and those of us who do try to stay even a little bit gear relevant will get it by about day 200/250 by which time the next tiers of hugely priced items like soul/heart/pet will be released which brings people further behind if theyre focused on upgrading this item specifically. For Feedback:
  10. Skybreak question, second stage

    Are you standing up in front of him even though youre not damaging him? The boss marks the closest person to him other than than the tank and whoever is wanting to go into SS should be standing close and attacking him while everyone else holds off for like 3-4 seconds. If you mean the initial SS, then you shouldnt be attacking the boss at all in general unlike all 6 initial SS people are inside and the boss rotation begins.
  11. new weapons after baleful/seraph.

    The weapon effect stacks 5 times, each stack lasts for 30 seconds and each gives ap. At 5 stacks, reset effect lasts for 7/8/9/10 seconds gives 100/110/120/125 ap, gives 100% crit rate for the duration, 10% focus recovery on every crit and 5 hits of add dmg equal to 3400/4200/5000/5700% ap. Seraph > Void and Baleful > Dawn; I dont believe it allows for you to choose, so you'd need to switch to the appropriate weapon beforehand. Just wait until stream on the 6th to get more info out of it.
  12. Make Raven Feathers Bound To Account.

    Would be nice. You cant really get the soulshields anyways without actually completing BT achievements which unless youre only aiming for a 3/5set, you'll need stage 3 as well in order to complete a full set. Aside from the fact that no one would be getting a full set through DKV anytime soon when looking at how many you get vs how many you need for 1 8set. Having these bonus feathers weekly just helps with things like getting enough feathers for accessory breakthroughs a little faster than normal.
  13. Don't add the jump to 50 event

    You constantly complain about Summoner/Destroyer bots and hackers in arena but I havent seen bot trains and arena hackers in a long time. You're one of the few people (I could count on one hand) who still complains about these things which makes me wonder where exactly youre going to see these bot trains? Over on Jiwan-Soha-Dochun, I legit never see trains in any part of the game. The only thing you see is the occasional spam msg for a gold site. As for arena hackers, what ranking is this happening at and during what times? I have not seen a hacker in a very long time (since last March to be exact) and have not heard of anyone calling out hackers in arena which, the way this community works, would be "news-worthy" and spread in a matter of hours. I would welcome the instant lv50. I have leveled up 6 characters to 50 and even though I'd like to make another, I dread going through story another time so this would be great if it was fairly cheap to get. Im sure there are many others who feel the same. Saying that people will be unskilled if they buy this makes it sound as if theyre not currently unskilled even though theyve leveled up to 50 through storyline. If people dont want to learn how to play their class, they wont either way as its currently easy to just make your way through game by just lmb/rmbing. Just because KR did a 2 lv50 voucher doesnt mean it'll be done the same way here so there's no point even bringing it up. This was part of a huge event wherein the game changed models entirely from being p2p to f2p. Of course youre going to provide a huge incentive to people to come try your game and hook them onto it when your income off that game now depends on people trying and paying (especially when the level of content in KR is so advanced in comparison to our own). As for other regions doing this event, it was done with class releases (SF). For us, it seems as if its going to be a paid service which deters gold sellers plainly. They wont be wasting money on each character when they can easily set it to level itself through story and make extra gold along the way, especially for a character that will be banned eventually. It would be such a terrible investment. Finally, they havent even released much info about this and people are freaking the ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ out over nothing. See an actual fire before calling it out.
  14. Raven Soul Shield better than MSP legendary SS?

    Yes, Raven is generally better than MSP. Its the next tier of legendary soulshields so I would hope it would be. Certain builds do not benefit as much from 3-sets as others so it depends on your class and chosen build. 8-set Raven is almost always better than 8-set MSP.
  15. YES PLEASE. I wanted to make a thread about this a while back when I had to re-organize my market by deleting all my favorites and re-adding them. It would be so helpful and nice to be able to just drag and drop. If something like this could be done, it would be amazing.
