  1. As the title says, why cant we have an account wide tab? The current year is 2017 and every mmorpg i've played had such a tab, Cabal Online, Silkroad, Guildwars 2, and Aion (if i remember correctly). They just make managing all of your items ALOT easyer. Especially with this current event, where u need 2g every day on an alt, to craft the event items. Whats the point of having to mail an item u earned to another character u made? Is it lazy programming, a moneysink, or a way to sell more dragon trade pouches? Another thing is, why isnt our wardrobe account wide? Having to unlock the same outfit on different characters is just retarted. We pay 15€ for an outfit, and have to pay another 1.5€ to send it to another character, 3€ if u want to send outfit/adornment/helm of an outfit. I guess the only reason is so they can sell more delivery stamps?
  2. Same here, trying to iframe on time has become a pain in the a**.
  3. I've always wondered why hongmoon skills arent locked behind some kind of achievement, like legendary accs, for example doing a dungeon x times gives u this skill, or by simply playing everyday so u can buy them with solar energy, like u can buy soul badges these days. 1 Year ago, when the dungeons that drop the chapters for the hongmoon skills were kinda endgame, and people did those dungeon it was still a stupid way to gain them but it was doable. But having to do awk necropolis/yeti/nexus for these, is just a pain in the a** and a waste of time. Volume 2 & 3, chapters 2, arent even sold in marketplace anymore. I hate PvP and i'm looking for a way to get hongmoon secret technique volume 2, is there any way to gain them besides running these low level dungeons or doing PvP?
  4. Lately, we are basicly buying premium for 26 days instead of 30, since EU loses 4 days a month on maintenance. It's 20.15 here, and servers are still down, this is getting worse every week...
  5. I logged in, noticed my premium ended. So i bought 30 days premium from their site. Went to f8 lobby, only to get stuck there, not being able to enter a dungeon. It's 1 november here, a national holiday, at 21.30, and i havent been able to play bns today. I hope we in the EU get some kind of compensation for this, since this is ridiculous...
  6. Well, i logged in,went to f8 lobby, formed a party, and got stuck in lobby. When the message "moving to dungeon" came, i waited for 5 min, and nothing happened. I couldnt return to server either, so i had to restart the game. Dunno what NCSoft did this time, it's 21.30 here in the EU, and i havent been able to play, on a national holiday. GG NCsoft, i hope we get 1 extra day of premium, or some kind of compensation, cause this is ridiculous...
  7. ^ This, i dont understand why they havent introduced a 6v6 with equal gear, like in the normal PvP/Tag. PvP should be about skill, not about who has the highest AP or the biggest wallet. I bet if some kind of battleground with equal gear was added, ALOT more players would play battlegrounds. Cause BG atm is simply a whalefest, and most players avoid it like the plague.
  8. Slots in Weapon

    Hi, i havent played BnS since the Ebondrake Citadel / Desolate Tomb patch. And i remember the main reason for me quiting back then, was all the work i had to put into my weapon (when stage 6 was max), reaching stage 4, and still only having 3 slots. When i tried upgrading to stage 5, i still only had 3 slots, and had to use legendary gem hammers to get my 4th. Shortly after i kinda rage quit, cause i couldnt handle seeing my guildies/friends getting 6 slots at stage 3 without any effort. I thought i would give BnS another try, but then i remembered all this again. I calculated that if i wanted to have 6 slots, i would have to buy 37 (15 + 22) legendary gem hammers. At 40g each in market. That would be around 1500g. Which kinda wanna makes me quit before i even started. Cause who would want to grind weeks for something others get for free? Isnt there another way to get 6 slots? Is it still all RNG?
  9. Frost or Flame?

    A year ago i stopped playing, at the time when BnS launched Ebondrake Citadel and Desolate Tomb. I have been playing my FM for 2 weeks now, thinking the flame build is still the better version. Because when i quit, the "ice rain" skill which is called "glacial beam" now, wasnt such a strong build. I've been testing my dps in F12, and i really dont know what to think anymore, glacial beam has become really strong to. I've been using frost build mainly for farming peaches, cause of the aoe, but still switch to Flame if i'm in a group. I see alot of FM's in dungeons going for the Frost build, is it really worth it? I guess Flame build is still the strongest with the flame legendary trinkets? Are they both equally strong, and is it a matter of preference?
  10. +1 to everything u said. I even wanna add the cost of mailing a costume (that u bought for 20€) to an alt will cost u around 9/12 stamps, which is 171/228 NCoin, thats around 2€ to send an outfit that u BOUGHT to another character on your account. Wardrobe should be account wide, there is no point in collecting outfits on different characters...
  11. Looking for a response on HM skills.

    The way Skills are achieved in this game is so bad in my opinion. These HM skills should be behind some kind of pve/pvp achievement like titles or additional stats. An asura ember is going for 600g these days, which is a total joke for a part of a skill u can gain. To make things worse, u can use these HM skills in PvP, making the gap between F2P players and Whales even greater. As if Battlegrounds isnt already bad enough..
  12. Everyone past Desolate Tomb is a Jerk.

    I have to agree with u on this, i recently returned too after quiting for a year. But when i quit i already had a stage 6 legendary, so at that time, i had pretty high ap. Getting groups is just a pain in the a**, even atm i have 918 ap and it's hard finding groups for naryu sanctum or higher dungeons, cause everybody looks for 950+. This community in BnS has the most toxic and elite mentality i have ever seen in any MMO. The only thing that can actually help u to grow, is joining a social guild. A guild with 15-20 active members will certainly help u to achieve certain upgrades.
  13. Slots in Weapon

    Well, maybe i should have asked support for a reroll, like 50% of the players did a year ago. A rl friend of mine logged in last week, got his free legendary weapon, made it stage 1, and ended up with 6 slots, while he doesnt even play serieus. Another rl friend has 2 alts, all of his 3 characters had 6 slots at stage 2. Almost everybody i know ingame has had 6 slots by the time they reached stage 6. And u are telling me, u dont see a reason i should complain?? U said u got 14 legendary gem hammers from 2 events, split over 3-4 months, well i bet u can do the math and count how long it would take to get 37 of those..
  14. Slots in Weapon

    So, u are basicly saying that 80% of the players who have 6 slots at stage 2 or 3 just got something extra which isnt necessary? While the other 20% who were unlucky just have to suck it up and grind 1500g to unlock the last 2 slots? U do know u need 15 gem hammers for slot 5 and 22 gem hammers for slot 6. For something others get for free? Good luck getting all those from events. U ask me what i expect, these slots shouldnt be RNG, everybody who reaches stage 6 should have 6 slots, there is already enough RNG getting all your other stuff. Whats the point of all the gems u get from events, if u cant even equip them...
  15. Slots in Weapon

    I really dont understand that there arent more people complaining about these slots. Yesterday i upgraded my weapon from stage 5 to 6, after grinding masts for 2 weeks to find my wildwater bangle. And still only have 4 slots... I could have had 20 ap more, since the gems are waiting for me in my bank, how the hell is this fair??
  16. Remove mailing cost for account bound items

    Taikan skin costs 5g to send to an alt... wtf NCsoft BnS is Alt unfriendly, it's also the reason i dont really invest into alts. We should have an account wide bank tab, it's so stupid having to pay gold for items u worked for, just to send them to an alt. Same with wardrobe, why the hell isnt this account wide? Do they really think i wanna unlock certain outfits 2 or 3 times? We buy a costume for 20€, and have to pay 6 stamps (6 x 19 ncoin = 114), around 1.5€ to send it to an alt, that's just ridiculous.
  17. FM worthless in Battlegrounds?

    After a year long break from BnS, i came back and started doing BG, and never felt so worthless. What can we do against a good Blade Dancer or Blade master? They simply block everything Anyone has some good advice against every class? Which skills should we spec especially for BG?
  18. NCW, There is no room left in my warehouse

    +1, Holding on to all these items and weapon skins (since we cant store those in wardrobe) is a pain in the a**. Things like Wardrobe or the 1st tab at your bank should be account wide. Things like this would be ok 10 years ago, but we are living in the year 2017, account wide banks and wardrobes are in almost every mmorpg these years.
  19. Free slot

    I also never knew of it. Wanted to give BnS another try after a 6 months break. But since i dont have a free character slot, i cant even try the new class.
  20. Slots in Weapon

    Well, back when stage 6 was max, it took me months to get to stage 5. I could start over, but it would be such a pain in the a**. How long do u think it will take me to get to stage 5 again? And how much money would it cost with the current ratios?
  21. The game changed...

    Tbh, i really dont care about other versions of bns, i do care that our version is becoming a RNG fest, which it wasnt before..
  22. The game changed...

    I agree that there are people who find this game to hard, and those people probly never played a "grindy" mmorpg. I came from games like silkroad, cabal, aion, which are are all older mmorpg's and kinda outdated in the mindset of current players. I played bns for 10 months, everyday, have 720+ ap, but i lost the will to play. I hate what bns is becoming, adding RNG to every progress u have to make. I loved the way bns was, u worked for something and upgrade your gear, without fail (except psts). The last straw for me was when i reached stage 6 and only had 4 slots, while i had enough gems in my bank, but couldnt use them. If i wanted to add 2 more slots, i would have to pay more then 1300g on legendary gem hammers, which was to much for me. Why should i pay that amount of money for something other people get for free? (rng) To make things worse, to progress gear wise, i had to run ebon/tomb countless of times to have a chance on a drop (again rng), which i never got. So dont say bns is to "hard" for people, while they changed the whole system which made me stay in the first place, progress without fail.
  23. I've been playing since launch, and i'm a casual player. Atm i'm at 702 ap, and got stage 4 legendary, so i've been playing 9/10 months to reach this amount of ap. And i'm still stuck with 4 slots.. How is this fair in any way? When others get 6 slots on stage 1? I have 2 gems in my bank which i simply cant use, cause i aint gonna buy legendary gem hammers. And it will probly take me 1 or 2 months to reach stage 6, maybe even longer. Legendary should have a set amount of slots when u reach a certain stage, cause this is just frustrating and unfair..
  24. Slots in Legendary Weapon

    No need to get sarcastic here. U are either a person who got his 6 slots via luck or a whale who doesnt care to spend a few € to unlock slots. No point in comparing a rl lottery with slots in a game, we already have enough rng with these legendary accessories. U really think this is fair? Imagine u end up with 3 slots at stage 6, and u had to buy 42 legendary gem hammers to get extra slots, one of them costs 319 ncoin in shop i believe. So 42x 319 ncoin = 13k+ ncoin ( around 170€) or if ratio is 1:8, around 1675g. I guess i got "lucky" i ended up with 4 slots at stage 6, so i'll "only" have to buy 37 hammers...
  25. Slots in Legendary Weapon

    This is simply bs, today i reached my stage 6 legendary, still 4 slots... Why should i have to pay for 37 legendary gem hammers to get at the same level as someone who got lucky? Having to buy 37 hammers will cost me 1300+g, ARE U SERIEUS?? I was already getting frustrated about the drop rates of legendary accessories, and now i get this. As a "casual" player who has been here since launch, i gotta say THIS kind of stuff will make people quit, which i probably will...
