  • Awesome, thanks for the info Jaabg. I have done full Lunar before the expansion, so I doubt I'd have much problem with the normal bosses, and from the sounds of it, the advanced bosses aren't much more difficult. Of course, I've been out of the gam…
  • Just curious since I rarely do this BH and have considered giving it a go. Is killing the Essence of Defence boss normal procedure with most random wc squads? In the past squads used to leave immediately after Hauntry Queen, without killing the las…
  • All of them. I pretty much quit because BH was becoming the only way to make easy money in game, and I was bored to death of it. I must have gone into delta and fb99 and warsong instance hundreds of times each. There's no way playing something that …
  • The problem is that gold is also worth such a large amount too. So the average FCC nub does the maths and realizes they can get up to 70 runs of heads or fcc rooms and a set or two of hypers for about $10. Technically $10 every now and then is about…
  • (Quote) I think he's talking about stuff for those new players who hit 100 and don't FCC or the casual players who maybe log on for an hour or two for BH and a random daily. However, we do have TT 60-99, regular r8, Morai lv95, Morai lv100 and g15…
  • (Quote) For some reason they want us all on level 100 asap. Hypers are handed out like candy, I still have 66 hours worth from that silly heroic chest promotion. FCC is untouched and selling the exp room not discouraged in any way. Low level quests…
  • I remember pretty much all of it too. Levelling my first character (this one) was huge fun, each new skill and level was an achievement. I remember saving for ages and spending 3.5m for calamities and 15m on tt80 green and feeling badass. I remember…
  • (Quote) However, that single stupid player brings in more money for PWI than hundreds of casual players who enjoy the game and charge a little zen every now or then. PWI might be dead in terms of enjoyment and a happy playerbase, but sadly in terms…
  • (Quote) It's actually a very nice skill, especially for a support class like a BM. If you can afford 5aps, you can afford HF or at least work towards it. I see far too many BM's prioritising their +10 weapon and 5aps over getting their skills, it g…
  • -Sins who demand HF on seat boss, go all out, pull agro and die...then get mad, and demand more HF. -5k hp sins with +10 or better weapons or 5.0. -Sins who go all out on metal boss, then force the squad to wait after they die while the boss goes fr…
  • (Quote) This is true, I can usually tank it without too much problem with marrow. Even better when you're demon and don't cut your mdef as much. However, squishy BM's shouldn't be getting agro in the first place. Controlling agro is basic knowledg…
  • This years gift will probably be un-account stashable, since they seem to be doing that with every new item. Very likely to be more fashion. Pretty much guaranteed it wont be tradeable or anything that will save/earn you coin. Also predicting more …
  • Still have about 1000 heroic chests I haven't got round to opening. Not going to either until they fix this, spamming my faction and friends isn't really funny. The Duke got a bit old ever since he started announcing anything other than venomancer …
  • (Quote) Sad it's true, but still wonder why they changed it. Can't be anything to do with botting, considering there's been 2-3 veno's botting foxwing supreme's literally since the game started, yet those DQ's aren't nerfed at all.
  • (Quote) Awesome. By "not OP" I'll assume you mean standard g12-13 +5 weapon/armor, without any charm. Go ahead and post a video of yourself soloing Blackhole, with such gear. Maybe drop a piece of aps gear, not everyone is 5.0. And no dem…
  • Have to be fair, BerserkBeast is pretty much bang on. Not everyone is a sensible minded player who just starts an mmo and immediately invests their coin and sells to other players. DQ drops are that nice chunk of coin at the end of a days questing t…
  • Hm, I stand corrected on Morai quests, though they're still a coin sink in that you get no coin/item reward at all. Still, I'll admit a few new quests similar to the morai dailies would be a step in the right direction. Divine Contact white quests …
  • (Quote) Don't think 25 daily quests would work in PW. In the above mentioned game dailies usually amount to "gather 10 nearby items" or "kill about 7-15 mobs" and usually give solid rewards. You could do 25 dailes in an hour or …
  • (Quote) Well, r9 was more of an example. What I mean is heavy cash shopping in general. Like people who buy packs 500+ at a time, or people who spammed up 10000+ heroic chests without the glitch or someone who cash shopped to make a +12 vana 2nd ca…
  • (Quote) In your opinion. In my opinion, and most other peoples, chips are rubbish. Everyone's entitled to their opinion, so therefore we can discuss it all we like. If you believe it's a dead subject, you're entitled to that opinion, so simply mov…
  • Best way I find is picking herbs and mats. Doesn't even have to be farming, just pick up any you see while you do quests, then sell them to catshops when they build up. You'll be surprised how quickly you build up a few mil spare doing this. Also k…
  • (Quote) Sadly, very few of the players really want that. However, the truth is, they still make more money even from the minority. A thousand r9 players throwing $3000+ into the game will make them a vast amount more money than ten thousand happy r…
  • I'm guessing the reason they never removed chips is so the server doesn't get too flooded with coin. However, I have no idea why they don't simply replace it with something that can't be NPC'd, or if they're really worried about people being rich an…
  • (Quote) There is nothing they can do. They would have to take the chests from everyone who got too many, otherwise it would cause riots from the people who lost their extra chests when others kept them. If they server rollback, it will cause majo…
  • Nearly all alts. It's actually very difficult to find anyone nowadays who isn't simply an alt of a lv100 main. The population itself isn't too bad on some of the PvE servers, but it's definitely declining very slowly with each passing month. Also, …
  • (Quote) Yup. Kinda scary how many r9's with billions of coin worth of equips are still proudly linking their +12 weapons with DoT's for squads. Zerk is one of those things that a lot of people seem to read as "double damage". Never mind …
  • (Quote) Wouldn't you need to do a full run for that? Personally I've seen squads run just to the BH boss and maybe net 1m drops total. Then they disband and move on and that's that. You can't force players to run more than the BH, nor should a BH b…
  • It's basically just a failed coin sink device that the devs are too stubborn to change. Yes a lot of the mats "pay for the fee" if you get a good run. But once you minus the 3m from the mat profit, it starts looking a lot less worth it. Sa…
  • To answer your question straight. Elemental Shards only add a fixed amount of elemental damage to your physical (melee) attacks. Stick with Sapphires.
  • Sadly never really thought of taking much screenshots back in my starting days. Did manage to dig up a few though. Killing WB: Was so proud of that TT80 set lol http://i957.photobucket.com/albums/ae58/Dark-Sephiroth-/2009-11-1923-08-19.jpg http://…
