  1. this might be late, but are you using a 3rd party program to log in? If so, did you remember to update the game through the normal launcher before using the other program?
  2. This game to toxic .

    I picked up the game about 1.5 years ago and definitely experienced the same feelings initially. After playing for a while, I also noticed about the same amount of newer players (at least at the time; I know there aren't many new players now) as toxic players that just refuse to learn and don't understand why more experienced don't just carry them because it's easy for them. I agree with Miggs that one of the most helpful ways to better enjoy this game, especially as a newer player, is to find a group that is friendly to that player base. Believe it or not, they still exist, it's just a lot of them have enough players amongst their own groups that they can do dungeons and raids amongst themselves. If you do not have Discord, you should definitely get it as that's how almost all groups coordinate activities.
  3. the general rule of thumb is if you don't have at least stage 7 (BT), you should just pay the unrefined upgrade cost. otherwise you can crux.
  4. Same, I'm shadowforged on my SF and many times can't even get into parties asking only for aransu. But not much we can do about people not knowing how every class works.
  5. Issue with open world pvp

    this sounds more like a WoW Vanilla post. with the current state of the game, there is no reason to do anything other than finish the game if you aren't max level. if you don't want to be killed by a higher level player, than simply don't wear an outfit that allows yourself to be killed.
  6. Floor 20 Yunsang

    besides, literally just tried this, mechs are exactly the same
  7. Blade and Soul Beginner Guide

    not too many people are willing to take the time to put together something like this to help new players, and I hope your work can be appreciated by many people. I did wanna point out under the disabling skills portion, you can actually disable up to 5 skills not just 3. I would personally also add in a note for PVE that new players should disable their knock up skills.
  8. Blade and soul Simple Mode

    who doesn't let someone in their party/raid because of simple mode? that's the same as not letting somebody in because they macro, which is just stupid (if this is the case, WLs would never be able to get in any groups). I can see a group not allowing someone in because of a lack of DPS (apparently in the case of TC) or inability to do mechs, but nobody actually cares whether someone uses simple mode or macro. to get back to the topic at hand, if TC is pinging 180 normally but up to 300 during encounters, I would question whether or not optimized graphics settings are being used? bns ping takes into account everything, including fps, instead of just the relay time, so if you're experiencing that big of a gap in ping, is your fps also dropping drastically? you can also try macro-ing and test out different intervals for flicker. while nothing will beat manually cancelling with full concentration, it's not always easiest depending on the content you're doing. I ping normally at about 130-140 and it goes up to 180-190 during encounters, and I found 650ms in between flickers to be a decent spot (the macro is literally just LMB), so I just hold F and macro if I'm using it.
  9. Which Doctor Weekly Raid Guide

    not really sure if it warranted a guide at all. if you just go in a try it, you can see that 1 person is able to do it. and it's the only thing that the actual boss is locked behind rather than a mini-boss
  10. This is an honest question to everyone who is complaining about this event, do you guys basically want every event to be completely accessible to all players regardless of gear? What if they just took out stage 4 from this event with the cosmetics behind it, would that make this event better?
  11. there's no bug. it's not very intuitive in telling you this, but you just need to change your spec in Scourge off of mortal coil and it'll be soul shackle
  12. Mystic Badge Trader

    If you windstride to Dasari Gardens Trading Post, there's a guy named Suh Seyun (General Merchant) next to the vault guy
  13. Numok Bracelet

    just like 2 months ago I was in a group that went up to 100 gold for it
  14. Weekly challenge bug - be blessed

    why do people even care the weeklies button is bugged?
  15. TT Ring & Earing cost decrease

    I don't so much mind the upgrade cost but rather the lack actual stat increase for the price you pay. It's kinda dumb BT accessories are still stronger than TT accessories until the later stages. IMO, TT accessories should be stronger than max BT right off the bat.
  16. Slashimi Armor

    I can't seem to narrow down the exact health % to consistently replicate this, but if you DPS Slashimi (Outlaw Island encounter) at a specific rate, it will trigger his armor up for his mech phase but he dose not actually go into his charging state. This makes it impossible to continue to DPS him but also extremely difficult to use the spear gun as he continues to use his regular attacks. This does not seem to be an issue if the DPS actually phases him a second time before he can even armor up for the first time.
  17. My warlock skills are BUG, HELP!!

    It's not really bugged, just that the training is not very good at explaining what is needed. You just need to spec your 2 off of Ravaging Curse in your K menu.
  18. Chapter 7 Letter Not Working

    You might need to be more specific with what act you are on and what exactly you mean by "not working." Like does it not go to the next step? Or nothing happens when you click on it?
  19. Why is the event weapon the same DPS as my A9?

    I'm actually having the same experience with this. I do the same damage with the event weapon as my A3. And as far as the rest of the gear, yeah, it's not great, but I would assume a jump to GC9 should have SOME difference. Can't help but get the feeling something is bugged.
  20. Game Crash after new update!

    I have not been experiencing any crashes, but I have seen a lot of long freezes (generally 5-10 seconds) where I can hear the computer working extra hard. I believe these are probably the same spots that other players might be crashing on
  21. Remember the Fallout 76 power bag fiasco and Bethesda tried to calm everyone down with $5 worth of in-game currency? This is NCWest's "Hold my beer" moment
  22. DPS Requirement to Solo ITF/El/SSM?

    before the latest enrage timer reduction, I solo'd NS with my Raven 6 BD with about 20 seconds left on the timer. honestly I died most on the mini-boss right before the xanos room until I realized I should focus on killing the adds rather than the actual boss if I don't have a group with me
  23. how to tank now?

    it's a small bit more tedious to need to use an extra skill for threat generation, but at least the buff lasts a good 3 minutes
  24. Heavens Mandate

    If you have a group of players that you regularly play with, you guys can take turns using the 1 orb that you get from the registration package
  25. As somebody with equal number of characters on both factions, I find it far easier getting into groups on the Cerulean characters. In fact, sometimes I will sit on a Cerulean character and switch over to a Crimson character I actually need the group on.
