  1. Getting the Siren Sword

    If you blew moonwater key like i did, just do this Step 1: farm dailys to get gold, acquire around 10-12 gold ( it depends on exchange rates) Step 2: exchange the gold for hongmoon coins Step 3: buy moonwater key with coins Step 4: acquire chest Step 5: use key on chest, get weapon for your class I've been using this process since exchange was added and its made my life alot easier... i don't worry about RNG anymore i just toss a little gold at the chest and get my weapon 100% of the time.
  2. Well i'd rather be a casual then an elitist ass hole =3 look you have to understand something, people play the game for FUN and enjoyment. Its not a job, its not some task that we should spend half our lives to do. Its about enjoyment sitting down for a few hours having FUN with our friends. Am i a casual? Probably i'm still trying to move into Siren, but on that note i haven't once bought tokens, and have FARMED all that i have myself. No Guild, no allies, JUST me on my lonesome, playing a game i enjoy. Have i played the Korean version? no you played city of heroes? how about Vanguard Online? how about Dragonball Online? how about Ultima Online? should i sit here and list the many many many many MMO's i've played over my 20+ years of mmo gaming? I've played so many MMO's so many different genre's and types i can safely tell you THIS ISN'T A NEW PRACTICE! But bigger point is... How is someone else getting something ruining YOUR fun? what can't strut your (edited) around like a boss anymore? boo *cricket*ing who cry me a river =P just because there are other people capable of getting same stuff you have a little easier now? (edited)
  3. Its an Event things like this are given out as part of said event its also random. Example in Warframes you normally cant buy certain items but during events often given out such as the supercharge items, or even special mods.
  4. I like grind but...

    I find grind is annoying do to insane gold sinks more then anything else. In games like WoW or EQ its more or less about doing a dungeon for the right drop, and that drop is your upgrade. In BnS its more about a giant ass collection of a ton of items OH and then 100's of gold on top of that, its made worse when the MAIN ingrediant for most items is from PvP only. I LOVE this games lore, and its combat but that grind? its annoying as all sin, i just basically log in do a few dailys and slowly build up gold for the next upgrade... but its kind of a letdown... especially since i do enjoy the intense speed of combat, and all of the complexity it has. Iframes, and combos and all the CC combinations. Its interesting and fun! But like most MMO's always that one thing that annoys the shit out of me... still its my go to mmo for the moment.
  5. or we could add a dice roll system and get through these windows in half the time >> just saying...
  6. Droprate owerhaul - we need it!

    The drops are purposely weighted in a way to promote farming because " korea " i really wish was a better explanation but there really isn't... fact of the matter is Korean players and asians typically (but not always) love farming, is only so much they can change for the states. Good news is we have keys to alleviate some of that grind and with currency exchange its a bit easier then before. As for costumes i think only thing i'd like is the costumes added in for marks, even if its a high amount, that way we can get those rare costumes if we play often enough. Or just add them to hongmoon store... are some costumes i'd love but i dont have the drive to farm them...
  7. ah wow i didnt realize they were ncoin only, oh well its still not a big deal... been doing 24 mans every day and i already have all accessories... and its a nice chunk of change its not that big a deal. They didn't nerf the drop rates what they did was added MORE items to the drop table, which causes the problem. Grinding marks isn't hard it only takes an hour or so a day to do the 2x 24 mans PLUS the bosses in 24 mans can drop the accessories... still not a big deal.
  8. always people doing it in my server... also is an alternative step 1: grind god step 2: sell gold for hongmoon coins step 3: buy pirate tokens step 4: buy accessories with tokens
  9. Why everyone is quiting

    Are a number of reasons people are dropping the game 1: Lagging during Soul Field, Lagging when are to many people on the screen... really no excuse for it for a game this old 2: Hackers, Bots, and cheating in general can really ruin an experience, its no fun to be pvping or running an area and run slap dab into a wall of bots who ruin your enjoyment of the game... 3: Faction Imbalance: i know for me at least its impossible to do pvp dailys on my server as one faction VASTLY lout numbers the other, creating a situation where all channels are dominated by one faction and only one faction its pretty disheartening its either swap over or feed the enemy... 4: Upgrade Wall: alot of people and i mean alot of people are hitting the upgrade wall where they need 600 or more gold JUST to upgrade to next tier, and that's a daunting task, even if you do every daily that's only what 30-40 gold a day? getting 600 is crazy i mean its kind of nuts... 5: Realization that this game isn't what they hoped and loss of interest These seem to be the big ones, of course game guard and bugs also rank up there... i think anyone that plays this casually is going to get a rude awakening once they hit true profane rank 10 and realize amount of gold and farming required... alot of issues that need resolved and it'll probably be awhile before things balance out.
  10. Night Luna and Lyn

    Honestly they are trying to sexualize a very non-sexual species which i don't really care i will just avoid costumes that add boobs to my summoner. That said options are always good, i'm not against the costume adding boobs, but i personally don't want my lyn to have breasts because...they arent human. They aren't mean to be human... and from everything i've saw so far females don't have boobs, its a really weird design change... But as i said, more choice is always good as long as its not force.
  11. As a fellow Casual you need to stop thinking you can have it all now... basically, i hate the insane costs to... part of that problem is that other crafts are nigh pointless since game drops food and health pots like candy... so earning a steady income is kind of difficult... but i digress... main point here is this. Dont feel pressured into farming gold non-stop all day what i've been doing since pvp is so unbalanced on my server is just doing my dailys buying what i can, logging off and enjoying other things or playing on my alt. Take it one upgrade at a time... one thing alot of people will agree on is that amount of gold required is bloody insane... but i dont see them changing it anytime soon way i figure it the intent is to stall alot of players from reaching endgame content. Otherwise people would be all " but i reached end game already " and leave... or you could just buy gold... i mean whole game encourages it might as well just cave at this point...
  12. 10th class hints...

    big hint seems to be linked to " fans have been asking for " which is why i said gunners... but if its not in game or seen? literally rules out alot of classes people have been asking for... spears gunner archer sword and board all of these appear in game already... and its not a hybrid? so question is whats been asked for thats not in the game yet... i dont know i think might be some miscommunication in the translation or something. Either way its exciting to think about =3
  13. Surviving Solo as a BD?

    So on all my other characters i manage to solo most of the regular dungeons solo, but trying to play a BD i'm immediately hitting a wall now i'm level 30 and, using mostly a wind spec as i really like omni slash. But i'm noticing a distinct problem regarding ranged adds. Now melee not a big deal grouping up enemies and using sunder to kill them in a couple slashes is easy. But what i've noticed the issue is actually specifically ranged adds during boss fights. They spawn in, and immediately rip half my life away in moments. Is the BD just not able to Solo early on? or is there some trick i'm missing? Class seems excessively squishie compared to all other classes i've played ( FM 45 and KFM 37 ) everyone kept saying the KFM was such a difficult class but comparatively? i solo so easy on that class this is only class i've picked up and felt kind of weak with not alot of ways to offset that weakness. So i'm just curious is some trick to surviving solo as a BD or are they reliant on a group? Spec 3 points in rush for multi-slash/omni-slash 3 points in sunder(T2 stage 2 for attack speed) 2 points in rolling typhoon 2 points in vortex for parry 3 points in soaring falcon for energy regen 2 points in five point strike for damage resist 3 points in dual strike for damage resist and healing 1 point in wind focus I don't really want to use lighting as i dislike relying on a 30 second cooldown... i'm sure i am not using an optimal build but it was working ok for awhile...
  14. Upgrades are wayyyyyyy to expensive

    i think they just need to tone back the cost of upgrading past level 45... other then that it probably needs to be expensive... but i also hate that whole game is a giant gold grind...
  15. Junghado... i'm sort of confused

    Well not really touching 50 content just yet i want to get my weapon past the 45 stage, plus kind of waiting on my friend to finish the storyline. ONLY thing really making me lose atm is this When he hits 30% or so, he starts using his " ultimate " no idea what name is, BUT first time its easily ice sheathed to counter. The problem is that, he will ALWAYS do it again before the cooldown is gone... usually it has 3-5 seconds left in that situation, its pretty much game over scenario and i have zero clues how to stop him from doing that, i dont know if i can iframe that it seems to be a grab, and i believe he's completely immune to damage during the wind up so cant stun him or grab him or anything so... i have zero clues on what to do in that scenario when ice sheath and statue are on cooldown... worse he quite often spams his root back to back on me in those cases i either pop statue or die... i dont hate the boss but i think his ulti-spam needs to go away... it needs an extended cooldown to give classes that rely on a cooldown to avoid it a chance to beat him
