  1. Its a matter of prioritizing gear. what will give you a better benefit: 400 crit damage on the badge or an upgraded soul / heart. You arent supposed to max everything easily, also most players dont even upgrade the badges past stage 1, even people in ET raids, so its not a must to upgrade it. It has nothing to do with whiteknighting, people simply do not want to farm and play the game, they want everything maxed and done instantly. without any effort.
  2. you cant exchange pink fuse for another pink fuse. that was only available for BM and KFM. Other classes could not. Same with ET badges. they were non-exchangable except BM / KFM. 24 oils are very easy to make and get in game easily. At most it would take you 4 weeks playing 2h per day. so that is not an excuse and money has no influence on this. they know players wanted it to be permanent, but they clearly stated it wasnt so no one should be suprised its being removed. the only discussion here should be about the notice time they gave. If you upgrade a badge you stick with that spec, simple, the system was something to allow players to choose as the classes drastically changed, if someone didnt change thats on him. so there should be lieterally no reason for you to upgrade another badge unless its a pink fuse or ET badge which were never part of the exchange NPC in the first place.
  3. Well ...either way if the pink fuse is the way to go, then he couldnt exchange to it anyway, ET badges are also non-exchangable. Your friend has one advantage tho, since the next 3rd spec is destroyer and assasin if i remember good, they will very likely introduce a exchange like they did for bm and kfm so worst case he is still good.
  4. |Sure there is, given i dont mind it being in game always, the only reason it was introduced was the awakening patch, so everyone could freely change and decide to play the spec they wanted to. After a few months, there is no need for this anymore. It only makes sense, and money is not the reason here as everythiong to make abadge you can easily and with little effort get in-game, this includes Grace stones, crystals and the badges needed to fuse. So stop using "money" as argument on everything.
  5. Whether the gave enough time is a different discussion.....i also think they could have given a week time notice. But in example of your friend...there is no issue for him, even with the ET mystic badge the old wind badge is garbage, so either way he will need to farm the pink badge and make the new fused badges to which you couldnt change in the first place anyway. Any old badges were not exchangable to the pink fused ones so there is nothing he is loosing out on.
  6. Explain how is it an issue? You had mnths to swap it over, and now especially, you can choose the right badge. The only time this would be an issue is if you upgraded the wrong badge but thats on the player and his own fault. Also they clearly stated badge exchange would be temporary with no end date at the time.
  7. Thats what i said the individual tokens are being removed and replaced with the "Temple of Eluvium Mystic Badge Chest" so instead of buying for example Frostburn Orb, you buy the chest and it directly gives you the mystic badge you choose o.o
  8. No o.o see: "The Temple of Eluvium Legendary Mystic Badge Chest can be purchased from Dragon Trader Junsorei for the cost of 450 Hellion Core and 100 Gold." They are just removing the individual tokens from purchase and replacing it with the selection chest o.o
  9. It was when the system was introduced, they stated that it will be in the game but will be removed at some point just not "any time soon". The main point of it was to allow players to test out and switch specializations with the awakening patch. Thats now months after and so the system fullfilled its role. I do not see how this is an issue.....getting 2 VT badges is easy as hell and you can even buy them from the npc, soul badges: wind needs the pink fuse which cannot be exchanged, earth needs the old one which everyone should have already. There is nothing in this system needed for earth summ to go wind with ET. Since you will still be able to swap out accessories.
  10. Well....few of the things there are actually what players wanted so....there they go about "NC isn't listening to players"
  11. Thats some nice patch notes......(waiting for the bomb to explode) o.o
  12. From what i remember the hidden boss was never a thing at our version. It depends what you call "over the top", i mean if you look at the nerfs they did to dungeons and raids, you have to ask yourself if those really were over the top mechanics. for example BC 1st boss where you had to dash in / backstep to rescue people (was easy as hell but guess what, seems players dont know how to backstep / dash and it gets nerfed) Realmrift POH - Perfect example of the lever at last boss, seems people didnt really care to learn to pull it in the right moment and boom, nerfed to a point you can ignore all kinds of mechanics in there and just button mash dps. MSP - Allowing Webs to snare the turtle - given it may help some parties wasnt that hard to begin with if you had a smart tank and people that know what they are doing. These are just a few, but there are many many more examples like this. Instead of promoting and encouraging to learning dungeons and mechanics, they prefer to nerf it so people stop complaining.
  13. ET Weapon upgrade

    The reason GC3 is i will use the term "meh" compared to A9 is because of the changes the weapon effects undergo. Aransu 9 has a seperate proc for Crit damage and Crit rate, which are independant from the weapon buff/stacks, while as GC, the crit chance and crit damage are added to the weapon buff /stacks itself. So if you had guaranteed procs GC3 would be somewhat better than A9, but the way it is now , its better to go A9 -> GC6. Thornbreaker is basically the same as GC, what makes the difference is the additional damage stats on the weapon. So essentially ET3 is already a very good upgrade over GC9 (ofc the weapon buff, AP etc also play a role). You might even go Shadowforge 9 and then just skip GC completely if the damage of GC9 vs SF9 is comparable. I have both weapons a GC9 and a Shadowforge 9, using shadowforge i do way more DPS than with the Grand Celestial weapon (tho this can be class dependant).
  14. Game dying

    Devs would then simply pay nc off and find another publisher. Easy as that. Publisher publishes the game, they buy the license to offer the game to players, they do not own the game or buy ownership of it.
  15. Game dying

    @Miggy Miggs I agree wit you, that there is a lot of "low hanging fruit" to pick and make the game much better, i am just saying that some issues may not be that easy to solve hence they take long. I wouldnt say its bad game design, but i do agree that its not good. But then if the low content doesnt provide anything decent, newer players would have an issue again.And i dont think limiting character slots would be a way to go, Yes and no. All nc can do i nag that its an issue and players complain, if the dev team decides its not a priority or if there is currently no time, the issue wont be fixed no matter what nc soft does.
