  1. New Daily Dash

    The non-renewal subscription is part of some adjustments I'm doing to balance what the company should earn. :) This adjustment hurts the "Venture Tokens flow" of the wrong target of players. Not sure what's worse: the unawareness or the intentionality behind this change. Also, cutting stuff ahead of time before introducing new ways of rewarding players is, again, either plain stupid or sneaky af.
  2. You can get purple from the 10-feather-cost ascension stone boxes you buy at cold storage merchant. I did.
  3. BT vs Myth Ring: opinions

    Thank you everyone for your thoughts, especially @Amarathiel for all the math :) I see there are different opinions on this... @Fiana true, I forgot to consider Skill modifier and raid buff. On the other hand, I think that upgrading from BT3->10 for the crux is not much cheaper than 480moon+ely crystals for the early refinement. I'm convinced, I'll give it a try, like @Crona Darkdance said, it would be the best way to upg for pvp anyway. @Kozuki I could afford it somehow, but it would be (upgrade costs aside) another thing I'd have to buy from a raid, something I'm not very comfortable with. @Grimoir That's why I was trying to give some info about crit%, set bonuses, class...I was hoping someone could have a better clue where that 'balance' is. I'll let you know for science how it goes. :)
  4. Hello, I'm playing a warden, at the moment equipped with a BT ring-stage 3 and I just managed to bid a cheap Imperial Ring. I'm aware that Mystic > Crit dmg and such, BUT I was wondering if it could be a good choice to upgrade to a Myth ring stage 9/10 for the following reason: - together with Skyreach Gloves + Prophecy Neck + Bracelet i could get the 4set bonus (10ap and gaining 150 Mystic back...BT-3 gives 384) - my sheet crit rate is ~50% so the 10%crit chance increase should be efficient (if I recall correctly around 89% in dps meter) - I don't have a TT raid and it would be one thing less to worry about - IF in the future I can afford a TT ring, i can always switch it to pvp with a little investment (I do some middle-tier bgs) What do you think? Should all bonuses and stat give an actual upgrade or those extra 234 Mystic from BT-3 are still better? Thanks for your insight :3
  5. Thanks

    I failed stage4 with maxed BT ring/earring, maxed VT neck, tiger soul, ~59%crit and 1700ap, pulling around 1M dps when equipping the event weapon instead of the aransu9. Clearly not a random char with BT/VT 3acc and ascending soul...the bar is set too high imo. Anyway, i can afford to skip this stuff. Can they afford to loose more players? :)
  6. Hi, I find myself in the same situation. I'm gonna finish the event with 100%chance and 12 oil left. To those who claim that "I didn't grind enough" I'd like to point out that to reach such a result it means I barely skipped a few days in a 5 weeks event. I'm fine with the RNG, not jealous if someone get the soul before me, but a bit more of time margin would have been is the correct word. Furthermore, it's disappointing that wrong information (unclear at the least) were given during the stream. I start doubting what have been advertised when I was way past 50%chance and heard a lot of players being in the same spot...too late in my opinion to stop trying. Anyway, instead of getting mad about it, I decided to follow a more 'cold-businness-oriented' approach for the future. You don't provide the service I expect, I don't pay anymore. I'm sure it's gonna hurt more than any complain I could offer, while still enjoying nearly as much of the game as a freeloader. Time will say who's gonna get the short end of the stick.
  7. Storm Dragon/Exalted Weapon Path

    If I remember correctly from the stream, blood pearls has a chance to be found in the upcoming rng box. I assume they wanna make sure to milk as much as possible players with those, before giving any chance to get them for free elsewere. In my opinion they would gain more money if they didn't insult people least, this is how I feel...I believe that many decisions made are profit-oriented and that's fine...but why come and tell some fairy tale to justify those? Also, the sad cherry on top. A guy write about some issues in spanish in the forum, instant staff intervention to point out that this is not a spanish language forum. Topics filled with feedbacks and silence. No idea if they even read, consider, care. I'll try to not hold cereal in my mouth next time I hear on some stream "thank you all for your feedbacks, keep sending them" :cerealguymeme:
  8. Storm Dragon/Exalted Weapon Path

    True, but can you imagine? This means that AT LEAST until june 20 we cannot even think about upgrading the weapon. Assuming 100G (and it's gonna be more) for each blood pearl, going from stage 3 to 6 costs (only in pearls) 7800G...VT material goes for what? 4,5k? And then only aransu orbs/hive queen hearts for upgrading Also true...thing is...if you haven't stuff from VT you don't meet the requirement to even challenge the first boss in the new's a vicious circle ^^' I've a good soul, both BT jewels, over 1200AP, and still sit around 210k dps on a training room dps test. Even by pumping all my resources on perfecting soul, etc I'm not getting enough dps anyway... (and let's not forget that we're talking about making the hardest raid to upgrade a non raid weapon )
  9. Storm Dragon/Exalted Weapon Path

    I came to the forum for this reason. +1 Storm Dragon/Exalted is, in most cases, a second choice for every class. Aside from Earth destroyers I believe nobody would take this path unless he cannot afford/don't want to join a raid. Many ppl decide to buy drops from raids, something I'm not inclined to do...I prefer to get what I can with my efforts. As BM, upgraded from Raven9 to Storm Dragon because I knew I wasn't gonna join a raid. The ugly surprise was that this is a downgrade for a tank. Tests I made shown that the dps increase in the long run is barely noticeable BUT on the other hand, the initial punch is ridiculously low, giving an hard time building aggro when engaging a boss. I believe it sucks but, whatever, I'll sacrifice 10hm points in threat. So, I accepted that it will take more time to upgrade my weapon than by taking the Aransu path, I accepted that (material wise) it's not even cheaper despite being less effective, I accepted that you can get little extra materials for Aransu and not Stormdragon with events/side raids (Aransu orb, Hive Queen Hearts: exception was the trove...yeah 30G for 1 blood pearl, a rate 5 times worse than Hive Queen Hearts and harder to find in list), I sacrificed even more by reducing my AP/HP/def just to keep up with the threat... Now everyone will need blood pearls, making it for us impossibly hard to upgrade our weapon...why? - you refuse to rollback the weapon: as I said I accepted the consequences of my upgrade from raven to stormdragon BUT since you cannot know how you dps is gonna be, I cannot feel responsible for that choice: I simply had no way to know this would be such a bummer before making the upgrade. - devs forget to keep one thing in account: the 'community behaviour'. Of course this is not the staff fault, on the other hand I believe it's your duty to be aware of that. Devs should realize that outside your little circle of friends, the community is hostile. In the matter, I've met tons of players Aransu equipped overbidding Sea Glass and Blood Pearls way before they knew they would need them, just to squeeze a little extra gold from you (easy to prove: when I passed and, given the chance, they leave the game before the bid expires to avoid paying 10g :<) ...and let's not forget that some of them already get thousands of golds from the desperate ppl buying raid runs. - I heard that blood pearls would be available with craft (and it wasn't even convenient), but you refused to introduce this. We're left in competing for blood pearls against players that, for obvious reasons, have much more gold to spend. Not good enough? As I mentioned before, because of the vast majority of the community, it's hard to team up for the dungeons you-want-so-much-us-to-play-in, so one may decide to take a step back and finish his daily by completing and older dungeon: ta-da! Surprise: cold storage reward -> 75silver! Wow, finally next time I'll be able to bid on a blood pearl! :P What I suggest is not to affect the progression you planned for players enjoying the raids (that I assume is also the larger pool of players the company is interested in, because of time and money spent in the game) but to not destroy the remaining players. How? - accept the rollback requests - add other ways to get blood pearls: the craft, put it in event rewards, drop chances in dynamic chests, daily have hundred of possibilites and no reason to deny them - give for each stage the chance to upgrade from Storm Dragon to Aransu (like from Riftwalk to Raven). You nerfed Vortex Temple right? You made a whole event to encourage the raids, right? Very well, I'd take the chance to get out of this black-hole-weapon-path...wait I can't...I need 78 blood pearls to make Storm Dragon 3->6.
  10. What weapon path should I choose?

    Hi, as mid-core BM I'd suggest to stick to the Raven weapon. Nowadays it's quite cheap and very effective. In the past I had Riftwalk, then Raven and I noticed around 12k/s dps increase testing in the training room (without the Raven SS and badge combo). Now, in the matter of the combination of Riftwalk + Raven SS + Combined Badge: here is an extensive topic on dps comparison vs Raven: . I believe it's a really cool playstyle, in fact, from Raven I jumped back to Storm Dragon weapon path. Do-not-make-this-mistake. Even with the best gear scenario for the 24sec V cooldown, my dps increase wasn't significant from when I had Raven +9 BUT I lost a lot of punch in the start of boss fights and this is the worst thing it could happen to us. Keep in mind that nowadays you have to play with extremely high burst dmg classes like Gunner...we cannot afford to wait to build stacks. Furthermore, if you play casually, you won't have the luxury to pursue the fused badge anyway AND, probably, by the time you reach the stage 9 on Raven, Aransu weapon will be more accessible so you can smoothly keeping the natural upgrade path.
  11. Make Divine Gracestones account bound

    +1 to this. I believe it would be a nice improvement on game experience for everyone with no downsides. It would help both new players and players that may want to make a badge on an alt character. I believe this could be easily done since the player still has to 'work' to get the 2 badges and the fusing process itself isn't it's not like you are giving away an endgame badge for free :)
  12. How to fix the pinchy's wheel idea

    That is actually a simple and effective solution. Anyway, in my opinion, the bad outcome of this event in due to 2 things: - tests I suppose weren't made with ~50 ppl at the wheels. - bad community. No discussion here. Sure, it's annoying how much time you have to spend spinning or waiting to do it, but the main issue is the lack of common sense. I've seen ppl without faction outfit throwing bombs with the only upside of enjoying ruining other ppl game, players (top clan ppl in the first raw :P ) spawnkilling others while in loadscreen which is totally unneccessary (and actually, pretty sad on their part),etc... The event may have been badly conceived, but noone took a step to make it anything better. Luckily it's just a cosmetic meant to be replaced so for those who can't tolerate that they can skip this part of the event. Btw, it's pointless to have a pretty pink swirl if your character is ugly AF...seriously, some ppl should get a character alteration voucher instead ^^'
  13. Remove Moonstones from 6v6

    I might agree that rewards could be more pvp-focused, but on the other hand, Sky accessories comes from pve content (and requires as much as dungeon runs as you may need to gear up with BG points) and I never heard pvpers complaining about it. Sure, it can be frustrating when you are on a loose strike in low to zero chance to win matches, but as usual, this become and excuse to blame the whales farming more moonstones, more gold,etc.... Well, lately I've been watching few streams around and those whales you hate so much are so whaley that they don't even care about moonstones...actually, they reach the 90k points cap and keep going. And do not forget that at some point with the rank system it's likely that it's gonna be a match of whale vs whale. If you expect to join the gold ranks within no time and for free, well... Btw, I'm a mid-gear pve player ~1130ap wtih basic 5set WW pvp soulshield.
  14. Hello, lately I did Awakened Necropolis 10times to get the earring for stage3 legendary breakthrough and, surprisingly, i haven''t seen it yet: this means failing to find it in 20 chances (10x drop + 10x dynamic boxes). Am I just extremely unlucky? Is there something wrong with the drop? Is this stupidly, nonsensically meant to be this low? I mean, I run daily Gloom, Masts, Yeti, Lair and the drop rate is basically 100% for an accessory there. Of those 20 chances only saw once the belt. I'd appreciate some feedback
  15. Raven feathers

    aww too bad :( I didn't recall Flowers to be account bound since the beginning, probably because I was focused on one char back then. Thanks for the info.
