  1. Ping way too high?

    I need to jump in the conversation after i see a bunch of people talking crap about things they don't know. If you believe DNS server are the cause of your troubles then feel free to change them: Find a guide on how to change ipv4 and ipv6, DNS server, etc. That will not do much and sometimes the results were worst than expected. The best result is to call your ISP and check your connection but don't expect miracles. Sometimes Customer Service reps they don't know crap and will try to sell you a "better" internet package. I feel your pain of not being able to play the game you "like" but I accepted reality and no matter what I do I, grow tired of making this game work as it should be, vudo this crap and still i don't get any improvements. Hell, 64bit made the game more stable, at least my game doesn't crash at the loading screen but still I'm not getting even 1 fps. Now to answer your question, What class can be played with high ping? WL, SCUMONER, FM are the best in my experience. The thing about lag is that sometimes it may reset your skill or not. Spend your long cool-down skill and don't do any damage, target the wrong mob, dash at wrong time, etc, etc. WL and FM dps is really high. Like you were told before, Sins need to meet certain requirements like poison stack, stealth while a WL or FM will just spam their crap. At 300 ms range don't play sins, KFM, SF. I don't know about BL's and LynBL's. I always tell people that if a VPN doesn't help you with your connection then don't even bother to play BnS. I find it strange that I play just like when I was playing on the JPN servers. I thought a NA server was going to be better but it turn out is just the same. The world is much bigger than BnS, wake up people.
  2. RAM Configuration

    Don't follow any of the previous advice, since knowing what type of ram you have is not the only thing you need to be aware of. Let me explain: There are multiple types of ram memory, DIM, DDR, DDR1, DDR2, DDR3, DDR4 Based on the link you have 4 GB of DDR3L SDRAM non ECC memory at 1600 MHz . It does mention that you have a 1x4 configuration meaning that you have 1gb module x 4. MOtherboards only have 4 memory slot so you already max out. You might want to open you computer and double check. That been said you will have to get rid of the ram you currently have in order to upgrade and buy a 8 gb set or 16 gb set, a 2gb x4 or 4gb x2 configuration etc, etc. Just to make sure go to your task manager (ctr+alt+del/task manager) on the performance tab click on memory and on the top will see how much ram you have and what type of ram it is. Just make sure to buy the same type. For installation well don't be lazy, youtube that shit xD
  3. i will join you, looks like we are on the same boat. For me, its been almost 2 weeks since i cant play no more than 1 hrs without crashing at best. When i relog in and dc after selecting a character or after10-15 minutes while loading a map or dugeon. I tried file repair, running as admin, setting client.exe with higher priority and still the same issue. I cant play anymore. Is getting to the point that I DC and I'm done for the day.
  4. Falling on deaf ears

    Like you said is going to fall on deaf ears. Long time ago during a livestream they stated they cannot just remove Gameguard since is part of many systems that they use for monitoring, etc, etc. While i agree they need to change it and remove it is not a decision ncsoft NA can make. After 4 years of playing this game every single region complains about the same things and here we are... we still have the same problems. They are not going to fix it, they either don't know how to do it (gameguard, optimization, use of all cores, lag, server delay, etc) or they dont care about it since they already cashed in $$$$$.
  5. Yun Class

  6. mmmm you can always back up your registry. In any case when it comes to computer you can only know by trying things out. how in the world is modifying your registry illegal or wrong? There are plenty of tips and trick to improve system performance by using the command line or registry even ccleaner uses said features.
  7. HI, thank you for the guide. I dont notice any improvements when playing BnS but it did make my connection more stable and by that i mean my internet speed is at a stable 150 mbps. I downloaded pingzapper but at least for me it doesnt work as well. I preffer WTFast instead since i can really monitor my ping and see #s. Pingzapper does not let you do that automatically. Also, i had better result using google DNS server than the standard I am having problems with my internet provider since Time Warner Cable is now Spectrum my internet is shittier. Bad thing is that they are the only service provider in my area. Well i guess i gotta move soon lol xD Ty for sharing.
  8. HI everyone, I have been playing dungeons and easy stuff everyday but i want to get further and I have some questions, btw i m a FM 585 ap 1) I noticed there are 2 sets of legendary Soul Shields, what are the difference between them and which one should i pick as a FM? 2) Are galaxy weapons better than regular weapons? 3) in order to run the most recent dungeons what is the suggested ap atm? 4) When crafting legendary pets, if I lvl my otter to lvl 10 and when attempting to craft legendary pet fails, do I lose my lvl 10 pet? 5) What is the best way to upgrade your Soul? only by crafting? Thank you in advance!
  9. Returning Player Questions

    Thank you for your help, I don't pvp that much anymore so i guess i will spam midnight soulstone plains from now on. Ty!
  10. What's your ping in N/A?

    The servers are supposed to be on texas. I live in Los Angeles California mi ping is 150-200 and using wtfast i get 70-100 However, is not just about ping sometimes i get a 3 sec skill delay and random freezes with "good ping". IS not the internet provider i did what they told us to do, i called them and was told they will reset my modem and it was also time to upgrade modem so i got a new one etc etc no difference. While the connection improved with general use, is the same with BnS. YOU have google fiber? i *cricket*ing hate you! lol xD
  11. The game changed...

    Interesting the same Lunakitty who complained about the game design a couple months ago now is all wise WK. Somehow just because the game still have very few players/bots playing on it but everyone else who left is lazy, whinny little kid I'm i right? Just because a few don't have problems with the game is an example that everyone else is wrong even though it has been proven millions of times that the game lacks optimization, server improvement. No, but no, we all have potatoes as our daily drivers. I congratulate you, You have the right mindset for this game. I find it interesting as people who describe other as: "they just want it easy" "one click and get what they want and no work involved" often describe mobile games rather than any MMO in existence. But hey, everyone needs to convert reality on their favor to make it seem real/believable. Rather than insult people without any critical thought why blame players for everything that is going wrong with the game rather than come to realize that is the company behavior, lack of communication, lack of any kind of improvements to the game/forum that has lead us to this point? Why not say, hey maybe you are not all that great, maybe do something to care for your community? Why not discussing the 100 issues that follow this game since release? Why not? oh it is because is easier to blame everything on players rather than focus on the problem. Again, numbers don't lie. BnS community will only host the whales and hardcore pvers (yes pvp in this game=pve).
  12. Game Issues

    I agree 100% + this game host one of the most toxic communities out there due to the "fake competitive aspect of the game". People keep saying is all about skills and get gud mentality but when they have HM skills on arena, HM 11+, etc against a new players.... hence the fake competitive aspect. The major issue i have with the game are the servers, I can deal with all other issues but with no decent ping you are better off playing other games to be honest. BnS has the best class system/combat but also has the worst engine/ping.
  13. How is the game population?

    I will just say that the whole thread was based on a simple example as to why a new player may find it difficult past lvl 50. You yourself stated that you wont do certain dugeons at 460ap . The problems is and you a re forgetting this part is that a new player doesn't know how dugeons work, ap requirements, elitism in this game works. YOu and any player here know how to get around these problems since we have clan member or we have a main with high ap. But for new player they think becouse they have achieved max lvl they can start working on lvl 50 dugeons. Also let me remind you lvl 45 dugeon are still need and is really hard to find group at certain hours at night with those dugeon arenot in the daily challenge. Again, a new player does not know that. I have tried and something i lucky to find people willing to group with me with my low ap for 45 lvl dungeons. Yes, it has happened that they just leave i go back LFP and they leave again. You have no excuse to be so defensive, yes i read the whole thread and you just keep finding a work around the problem BECAUSE YOU ARE A EXPERIENCED PLAYER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NEW PLAYER ARE NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I hate it that everyone tell you oh find a clan and all you problems are solved. LOL! such a lie every clan now is recruiting 550+600 ap since you can clear every content in the game. The problems is that even smaller clans they recruit low lvl people but lol they don't have enough active players at one giving time hence the problem. The point made with this thread was really simple. I harder to be a new player now than it was before because there are less people willing to help you now since every one cares only about end game. I tried to bring people to game and they left because they can find group to complete low level dugeons lvl 45 and I am no longer playing the game so i cant be there to help. Now we are all playing BTF1 :D
  14. I left the game 2 months ago! i just check forum since every player i met in game is playing something else. My friend list is at 0/58 all the time. I saw this thread and i just have to say something. The combat is the only plus on this game and everything else is lacking depth, options, optimization, etc. Like many keep stating lag/ping in this game is pretty bad. Even with wtfast from california i still get 80-110 ms. I went back to gw2 and i have 15 ms at all times. BTF1, Paragon, BTF4 i don't even use wtfast for those. I started playing BnS 3 years ago in the japanese, chinese, taiwan servers just to see which one plays better since the ping was killing me However, i never made it past lvl 45 since i just wanted to learn the mechanics and classes preparing myself for the NA version since it was announces like 2+ years ago. Once the game started i knew something was different, the premium was fix the look like it was something but it was crap. The terrible lag/ping was almost like playing in over seas servers then the constant patches made every month was clear to me i was not going to be able to catch up, enjoy, later on I learned about the upgrade wall and understood this is not game for me despite the good combat system. Animation cancelling is not a good sign since people can abuse it specially in a heavy dependent ping game such as BnS. After learning every class I understood some classes have an advantage and they are unbalanced in different games modes, Pvp, pve, ssp, 6v6, tag matches. They can most defenitly be abused in one game mode that then other. So why would i play i game that does not need skill level since there is such advantage present and adding the fact the other people have bad pcs, bad ping, bad connection(internet speed) and we have bad servers. How can i feel like a better player when i know other people have such gaps. #Parenthesis, I'm sorry but i cant recommend any other MMO with the same combat style as BnS. I give up on Korean MMO's. However if you want to try a different type of MMo i recommend you Guild Wars 2. i think you should read wtfast server for more info. I have been using it since 2 year ago for bns japan, taiwan and china and never had a problem with them. I don't know anyone who was ever banned for using wtfast. They most likely were banned for using mods that is another history.
  15. Problem with the Launcher

    try to run as administrator also, what happens after the you click log in? do you see the game loading? is your computer super slow after that? i had a problem like that and i needed to turn off my antivirus for some reason was preventing the game to start. Also after you log in and noting happens check the task bar and see if your bladeandsoul.exe still there or is not responding, etc. have you tried file repair? Last resource use the event viewer:
  16. A Peaceful Rant

    1) Debugging is not an easy task. I agree but the problem with this game is that we have bugs everywhere when the game is almost 3-4 years old. Ani-cancelling is a bugs in essence and yet it has been treated and part of the game. Only game i know of such things happening. I do not know what type of issues you are relating to but i don't see how asking to correct skills descriptions, general class balance, skill corrections (some skills don't work as intended like FMs), has to do with coding in a way that after 4 years still is not fix. 2) I honestly have no comments! so many other games do this and have been doing it for years i don't see how this is something new. Actually BnS are a bit behind since sometime the textures will get stuck to the camera or to another object. Let me add that other games you can change gloves, arm, legs, pants, underwear, chest armor, belt, helmet, lenses, accessories, back item, shoulder pads, individually and they have a different appearance and you can even change the colors and will still show the most current changes, because by definition a cutsene is no other than a camera displaying predetermined actions and events. 3) I'm sorry but that is the problem with the current gaming community. They lack information. They rather say thing without knowing how was done differently and what we got. Other regions have better rewards for premium membership and we have basic features of the game sold as "Premium". The developer themselves said that they don't want this game to be p2w and yet that is exactly what we have. So after so many whales and money thrown to this garbage were are the improvements? Servers? Ping? Bug fixes? bots? Gold sellers? we still have a terrible lack of communication after every maintenance. There are undocumented fixes to the game and skill "balances" that are never listed in the forums or the so beloved twitter. Most of the people who still play this game are whales there no more freeloaders as they used to be so i don't see how that idea of "They need to eat" apply at this point in the game. 4) If you truly believe that well good for you. But Game Guard does not help anyone, ever. And the pin is a feature provided and developed by google. You should thank them. 5) Again, Tons and tons of people have left the game so if the game crashes with our small population don't you think there is a problem? How come is my ISP fault if this is the only game people have problems with? Please explain how I'm I supposed to be upset at the situation when the game crashes and when i log in it tells me im already logged in but im not and after 10 mins i log in and find a group, start a dungeon and when at the last boss I DC again? Oh and then you get killed by fire at the entrance because of some ridiculous mechanics? I don't know what kind of threads are you following but just because 1 or 2 people go out of the way to curse them out is not a reason to believe everyone else is doing it. The game definitely need improvements and people have complained for years for them to fix them and to this day they haven't let alone the server issues I'm referring to gameplay alone. You should be thankful to the publisher and community managers since they are the one dealing with all the crap that is thrown at them. They are the ones that do what they can. They are polite to us even if the community itself will hunt them down with pitchforks.
  17. Why so many ppl left BNS ?

    I think people have a serious reading comprehension problem! The initial thread was as to why people left the game However must of you are replying with new changes made to the game, future updates,etc etc. Completely missed the point in the beginning. A MAssive amount of people left when we had the premium queues, tons of people left because it was ridiculously long wait times. It lasted about 2 weeks. Then we still have the same issues since beta, Game servers are not up to the task. Server delays, ping, lag, skill delays, fps drops, etc. Then we have class imbalances, although that is a MMO issue rather than just this game. Multiple game modes requires a general class balance but then again, this is p2w game so its not happening, ever. Then we go to the general complains of the game, farmiville 2.0 dungeon run master online, etc, etc. You need pve to pvp, you need pvp to pve, equipment upgrades are to expensive and since the question was in reference to the past I'm referring as to how it was before not as what we have now, dummies. That is why people left. Also, they kept adding content and more content before people could catch up to the event. That is why the treasure troves were so successful because people knew they were behind and needed to upgrade asap. They created a wall that became a problem and "created" a solution involving money $$$. Scummy business practices in mi opinion. Even with the current changes to upgrades we still have the same problem, the rng, the lack of stat alternatives, the low stat gain per upgrade, etc, etc. NO matter how you look at it, if you don't like rng this is not the game for you since everything is rng, premium stones, gem slots, dungeon runs, shield fusion, stat unsealing, etc etc
  18. Why is his hp still different

    Let me remind you that since day 1 they dumbed down every dungeon plus we have better Soul Shields than other regions so if people were able to complete yeti on drugs since day one why is this a problem now? 25% reduction is enough in my opinion. at 4 million HP, 500 AP people would be able to solo it before the ice phase, making enrage timer pretty much useless. The HP reduction is not or should not be a problem at all. Period. Be thankful that they did something about it.
  19. Tips for me

    when it comes to blue quest just look at the rewards, you will need the viridian valor stones, cirnderland and moonwater stones to upgrade your weapon at a certain stage. Also you can get nice SS = Soul Shields for leveling. You MUST do all yellow quest and check ouyr inventory once in a while. There are some quest that will be stored in your inventory and you have to read them form there in order to start. Best guild for making money? i hope you are referring to crafting guild. THe ones YOU MUST HAVE FOR A 1st TOON are Soul Wardens and Merry potters. SOul wardens enables you to craft transformation stones that are required to evolve your weapon. Merry potters you can craft primers that you will need to craft transformation stones or you can sell them in the marketplace. SInce you are new, i good way collect money is to farm essences from the field boses, the ones that have an special icon in the mini map. Look below the cursor. They can sell for 10-15 silver each and you can make some quick money with that. Or just swipe you credit card and change ncoins for gold.
  20. Is a function of the game. Press ctrl+x. It has 3 modes: 1-) It the standar normal mode 2-) Will hide UI but leaves characters names, pet, hp bars if you have enabled it, markers. 3-) Will hide UI + Names, markers, etc etc. With that screen shot i believe is a bug in the game, just change chars and that should do the trick.
  21. ---> Soul shield fusion

    How many times did you reroll before coming to the forums and telling people they cant read when they are actually telling you it is rng and its not even worth it for laberyth soul shields anyways? For Moonwater SS the best and only way to max out is whit artisanal SS That is why they are made for. If there is a discrepancy then no one noticed before because no one cares about maxing out Moonwater SS at this point in the game. Should send a support ticket instead. Hopefully you can read that and answer at some of the questions people have been asking you instead of insulting everyone in this thread.
  22. Why would anyone think bns doesn't or has problems with Windows 10? If the forums are full of people complaining about optimization problems in every platform. I have windows 7, windows 8 on my laptop and windows 10 on my PC. The game runs fine in case it doesn't you can always run in compatibility mode and should work just fine. Again, the game itself has tons of optimization problems with different architectures, even modern graphics cards have problems with BNS, massive fps drops confirmed on 980ti gpus. It is interesting to see older gpus performing better than my 980 ti. Don't worry Windows 10 is not the problem with this game.
  23. How's BnS PvP ?

    I see time is your concern. Well as other have advised PvP in this game has equalized gear. Yes it does, but the problem is after you reach lvl 50 there are additional level called Honmong levels, HM1 to hm20. HM1 alone will grant you +5 skill point to spent on your build and after that every lvl is +1 or +2 skill point plus they will grant you additional stats like +20 defense, +2 ap, etc. A lvl 50 hm 15 has an advantage against a lvl 50 hm1. Also, There are a set of special skills called Honmong skills, some of them have really nice functions, abilities, status effects that will really help you with your combos. For example Force Master skill #4 Multi Blaze, the regular skill is that will pull all enemies in a 8m radius towards the center. THe Hongmon skill is that after #4 pulls them you can use Multi Blaze which is a Aoe skill that deal a base damage of 45k over 5 uses, and on every use it crits 35k = 175k total damage. Let me share a story for you, In pvp i was able to kill 2 scumoners with that one skill in 6 secs. Oh Multi blaze... i *cricket*ing love you! If you like PvP be advised that in this game you need to grind for HM levels and skills, if you chose to grind you have to PvE. Other options is to let your wallet do the work for you = p2w aspect of the game. The one thing that bothers me is that you mention time is the #1 concern for you. This game requires a lot of time to even think to reach max level, stats, skills, etc. Also check your ping since even in good computers you might experience lag, freezes and DC's. Good Luck cricket.
  24. ---> Soul shield fusion

    i have max stats on my silverfrost ss. and i have 2-3 pieces form lab max out as well. I only used artisanal moonwater critical ss for infusion. Now the big question? Why do you bother maxing out lvl 45 ss? for lab you should keep your piece #6 with 9k health and crit infused with more crit. Another thing i noticed is that even if the spreed sheet say max infusion is +158. If you try to infuse more critical in a ss that has critical stat already it wont max out with +158 after the infusion. I remember i tried another ss defense and i was able to infuse +190, etc. It really didn't bother me since i didn't care for lvl 45 ss. But i did notice a difference.
  25. Farewell folks and Have Fun

    You can watch all the tutorials you want, subscribe to every youtube if you want. But if you chose a KFM for DPS then that is your fault. I'm not saying they are bad they are very versatile but it is completely idiotic to whiny about dps due to ping. You already knew you had low ping, you already knew you need good ping to master a KFM. You should know better specially if you came from other regions. Based on your description you were holding aggro so the FM or whatever class it was, could focus on only one thing... DPS. It is hard to deal with boss, aggro, mechanics and DPS at the same time. If you were holding aggro then you did your job as you are supposed to. Why the hate? Don't you know what your class was made for? You might feel so useless because you don't know your role in the party. Im a 580 ap FM and im usually second place in the dps meter even when team up with 650+ ,700+ap players. My class is made for DPS, i have to admit i cant outdps them sometimes. Why? becouse i have lag and my screen freezes form time to time for 2-3 secs.
