  1. clan help needed

    What is your timezone? You need to find a clan that runs when you are online. Ask in faction chat and see if anyone bites.
  2. Seriously, NCSoft? You have created a Valentines event centered around violence. I mean seriously, with all the #metoo stuff making the news, and domestic violence being a huge issue, having people fight to the death for a Valentines Day event is crass and completely tone deaf. Love is a battlefield, my ass. Who thought of this and why did no one flag it as a bad idea?

    Not really a practical solution.
  4. In the instance itself, in any of the camps.

    Soul shield order (from good to best) is MSP -> Skybreak Spire/BT/Raven -> Aransu. So you will start with MSP and then work your way up to Raven and then Aransu. Many of the "purple" shields from normal loot boxes are nowhere near as good as the legendaries. Faction might be able to help you with specific Gunslinger questions regarding which SS pieces or combinations are the best for gunner. I have run with 5 pieces of MSP and 3 pieces of Ebondrake Citadel for the AP boost, and 5 MSP and 3 Raven pieces, but you will generally get better buffs/increased damage from full sets. Midnight Skypetal Plains is a level 50+ twelve player raid. It has six stages, but typically most people only do the first three. Each stage progresses in difficulty and there are achievements for completing certain stages (and an outfit you can buy after completing level six). Best to do MSP on Friday through Sunday, as it will always appear on the Daily Challenge and groups are easy to form. Popular crafting guilds are Forgekeepers (transformation stones, void fragments, etc) and Soul Wardens (soul shield primers, items for Old Man Cho quests, etc). Story will give you the Solak Soul which is upgradable. Keep this one and continue upgrading it. Souls give you additional Attack Power, and once upgraded past a certain level, will also give additional buffs. You simply equip it like you would any other accessory. Regarding the earrings, I honestly have no problem with people using them, but faction can be fairly snobby when they see people wearing them as they feel the cost is not worth what you gain. Use the Lucent, then go for Pinnacle. You will want to look for purple earrings from Ebondrake Citadel and upwards. Some of them are elemental, which means they will boost your elemental damage, which makes up for any drop in when AP switching to them. Some of these earrings can be upgraded one stage as well. Unfortunately I can't remember their names off the top of my head. You're very welcome. :) I check in the forums once a day, so if you have more questions, just quote me somewhere in this post and I'll find it and answer as best I can. ... Radom tid bit - you can combine XP charms through transmutation. Ten 10,000XP charms can be combined into a 100K XP charm, and ten 100K XP charms can be combined into a 1million XP charm. Makes it easier to use them.
  6. I generally buy Moonstone Crystals, Moonstone, Elysian Orbs, Sacred Orbs, Evolved Stones and Transformation Stones/Premium Transformation Stones from F10 when they are in the specials. Sometimes the specials also contain pets or outfits. You could gamble and buy some pet pouches, hope you get a rare pet and sell it for $$$$$$. Ultimately up to you. You could also start saving it for Trove.

    Weapons Level 1-50 You won't need to evolve weapons and accessories until you reach level 50. Use what the story provides, if you find better on your travels, definitely equip it. Weapons Level 50+ You will receive a Dark/Light weapon box during the story, and it will provide your first legendary weapon, which you can then begin to upgrade. Pro tip: do not upgrade your Dark/Light weapon if it has less than 5 gem slots. Once you complete the story to the point of receiving the achievement There and Back Again you can buy more Dark/Light weapon boxes with Naryu Silver via an NPC. Do this until you get a 6 slot weapon. then upgrade from here. Upgradable Jewelry Upgradable jewelry becomes available after level 50. All legendary jewelry is upgradable. Some select dungeon drops (such as Zakhan earring) are also upgradable. Soul Shields Use story provided soul shields. Story will provide you with your first Legendary Soul Shield set. If you won't be advancing through Skybreak Spire (aka BT aka Black Tower) for the Raven set for some time, consider doing Midnight Soulstone Plains for more legendary Soul Shields to fuse and buff your current set. Side note: You will receive Raven Wings on occasion from the Daily Dash and there is a quest that provides you with some Raven Soul Shields. Use the Raven Wings to buy Raven Soul Shields. Soul shields fusion has changed. If you wish to fuse an MSP 8 to increase the stats, you must use an MSP 8 as your fusion upgrade item. Fusion costs 1 soul shield, fusion powder and soulstones. Soul shields can also be "upgraded" with primers and engravings. Materials You Need Soulstone, Moonstone, Void Fragments, Elysian Orbs, Sacred Orbs, Stone of Wisdom, Evolved Stone, Draken Cores, Naryu Coin and Naryu Silver, any and all "alternative currency" such as Hive Queens Wings, Raven Wings, etc. For materials underlined, you can obtain two forms: original and crystal (ie: Soulstone and Soulstone Crystal). The original form is tradeable, and processed forms (crystals) are not. You need to make or buy Sacred Oil to upgrade your Soul. Your soul is an additional item that provides extra AP and buffs. Side Quests Side quests are no longer necessary to level fast - just doing story will take you through to level 55 and cover multiple Hongmoon Levels. However, there may be value in doing some side quests if you want to practice and refine your play style. Basic To-Do List Complete the Daily Challenge everyday (available from level 55). Never miss a daily dash spin (free materials). Grab the free Login Rewards from F10 daily. Start crafting. Complete the following dungeons 10 times to unlock the ability to purchase legendary accessories from the Achievement Vendor (using Draken Cores): Ebondrake Citadel Desolate Tomb Naryu Foundry Naryu Sanctum Things You Should Upgrade Pet Aura Soul Soul shields (via fusion) Gems (via Tramsmuting) Things You Should NOT Do Do not buy the legendary earring from the achievement vendor with Draken Cores. If you must buy it, use Lunar Twilight Flowers and buy it from a merchant in MSP. Conventional wisdom is simply don't buy it at all or if you do, don't upgrade it. Do not buy a Scaleburn weapon from the NPC. Definitely do not upgrade it. Do not immediately upgrade your legendary weapon upon receiving it. If possible, reroll the weapon by buying the Light or Dark box again and again until you receive a 6 gem slot weapon. GLHF!
  8. Guild management without offline timers?

    Yessss. Even social clans need this (social clans also need to raise the kick limit from ONE per DAY). TBH I wish they would just remove the social clan system and go full comp. You can have a comp clan and not actually buy into the competitive drama.
  9. Social Clan Suggestions

    My clan is several months old; no reclassification.
  10. premium-membership-tier-reward, comment

    Just like to point out that (from what I understand) if you have level 10 premium, you are already getting 100% extra HM coins from venture tokens (you get 10% bonus coins per level, therefore level 10 is 10x10 or 100% extra). So this is not a new perk, it's just giving other premium levels the same bonus as premium 10.
  11. Social Clan Suggestions

    Social clans are a cool way to meet people but the system is currently lacking in several areas and these clans could benefit from the following: Add member ranks - currently the only rank available is Leader. It would be nice if Advisor was also an option, and could be distributed to several people within each clan at the discretion of the leader. Ranks/titles help members know who they can go to if they experience a problem. Remove member kick limits - I tried to remove players who are no longer active in game but there is a limit to the number of kicks a leader can perform per day. The limit seems to be ONE. This is ludicrous. It would take 30+ days to kick the inactives from this clan! Toggle advertising (on H screen) ON/OFF. Social clans are automatically listed/advertised on the Clan page (H) and anyone can join them. The advertisement period only seems to end when the clan hits 80 people. Give leaders the option to turn advertising OFF. There is no point in 24/7 advertising if you are playing from a specific time zone and want to recruit from that time zone. There will be players in my clan who have never seen more than one or two people online at a time because they joined through H and don't match the time zone of the majority of the members. That doesn't allow for socialization. Ability to switch to competitive clan without first disbanding. Support tells me that it is currently not possible to switch a clan from social to competitive without disbanding the entire clan. This is frustrating in that if a clan, as a whole, decides they would like to craft or move onto the more competitive aspects of the game, they cannot do easily do it. My clan has 92 people in it, even dropping the 30 or so that are inactive, that's 60 people that have to leave, wait days for the clan name to clear from the system, and then be invited to join again. Directed here from support, because they cannot increase the amount of people I can kick daily and they instead suggested I post this here.
  12. Since custom profile pictures are currently a hot topic, why not create an in-game photobooth that allows a player to change the backdrop and pose of their character, and take a picture for their F2? There's already a very similar option in character creation, where the outfit, pose, angle and lighting/backdrop can be changed. Almost all of the custom pictures I have seen in people's profiles are safe for work pictures of their characters in different game locations, or safe for work art work of their characters. Most people simply seem to want nice pictures of their characters as opposed to the somewhat ugly background provided currently for profile shots.
  13. premium-membership-tier-reward, comment

    I think the 60 days is quite generous (I was convinced prior to the announcement that they would give us seven days in line with their previous "generosity" levels), so I have no complaint there. I do feel that the new premium doesn't offer as much value as the previous premium. Now that wardrobe is for the masses, the biggest incentive to pay is gone, and the new incentives pale in comparison. I would prefer an account wide wardrobe or account wide warehouse. Get 15 HM coins a day. Get access to a daily cache chest you can buy with 30 HM/NCoins per day. Essentially, to access the "perk" of the cache, you have to spend HM/NCoin daily or skip days and get a free cache every 2nd day. It's a nice tactic to ensure that premium players keep spending.
  14. NCSoft will never release player info to protect the privacy of the players caught cheating. I don't necessarily agree that a pseudonym has the right to privacy (it's already private) but that's their policy.
  15. My PC is one month old and I am experiencing this problem. Would lodge a support request but I do not want to be told the problem is my brand new computer (it's not).
