  • There's a lot I could to say about it. There's definitely nostalgia since it was one of my first MMOs for sure. I get that a lot of people stick around because of the money spent or the friends they made here, but neither was never really that significant in my case. There were occasions where I spent here and there to…
  • Yeah, this is a really big problem. I'm assuming their idea is that you'll reawaken as soon as you hit 100 to continue the RA course while still getting JoJ dailies or the idea of lv 100+ non-RA didn't even come to mind when they did this This would be ideal. I hope they actually do something like this. This is a long…
  • Grade.....grade 18? Could it mean upgrading Dragonbreath weapons even further beyond or could it be a new weapon set entirely? Dragonbreath itself was already exceptionally powerful and near impossible for most to reach the final stage, so I cant imagine what sort of requisites this will have.
  • Why do they keep taking support options away from us? Couldn't cast SoV/SoSi on others, which was understandable because of the alt problem....cant cast Spirit Phalanx on others when they lowered its cost, and now you cant even Empower Vigor anyone else but ourselves? And why take the physical damage aspect out of Red…
  • A "jack of all trades" profession can fill a lot of different roles, even if they aren't exceptional at all of them. A venomancer is great at debuffing and some degree of control on key targets, but it doesn't mean that a Mystic cannot shine at what it does through its flexibility. It comes down to whether or not you as a…
  • If I had to guess, they'd probably balance it by making the receiver unaffected by Empowered/Diminished Vigor more than once while the effect is on them. If not, well, you'll definitely be seeing Psychic charm abuse groups around~ It'll be even more aids than assassins disabling headgear I imagine
  • >Psychic -Psionic Infusion+ grants +5k Soulfource and removes the Soulforce Penalty Actually pretty nice. Now you dont have to worry about turning off your Soulforce buffs while going balls deep for damage -Stronger Black/White Voodoo Good. Its kinda needed with how easy Defense Level buffs/bonuses are to access these days…
  • If one's not a BM/Veno/Cleric/Seeker (or maybe an assassin, but not always), they're sort of left high and dry for squad recommendations in later endgame instances unless they're exceptionally geared....or running with friends. Just something to keep in mind
  • Hmm, hmm. Old items...I do know at least one of mine still holds the pickax. Another still has some Green FC gear from the many times way back when you would run to the end. My Barb still carries a certain ancient tome when I was obsessed with the otherworldly glade and its secrets I'm sure there are some FB molds here and…
  • Well, this is interesting. It looks like they made most things "faster", especially on the cast time. One second here, 0.5~0.7 there...hmm. Instant Tradewinds+short anti stun is nice and the Stone Smasher buff is probably the most impactful change to make it more of a nuke. Kinda cool. Mixed feelings about the Voodoos…
  • The above is basically correct. If your gear is TT (bound) then you can at least pass it down through Acc. Stash to another arcane like a Veno/SB/Mystic if you want a decent starting point for an Arcane to farm with. If its Lunar, you might be able to sell it to help work towards your Rank 8+. Morai's lv 101 gear is also…
  • Earth Vector as an AoE Stun that can be Glyphed to Silence Glacial Shards for AoE Freeze Sandball for even more Silence Multiple slows And that's without Soul of Silence's potential trigger rate, Soul of Stunning's long stun with high SF, or bouncing a damaging CC back with Retaliation. CC is fine for Psychics - its actual…
  • If you have multiple alts of a certain armor type on one account to run BHs with, G16 with good refines (+7 or so) would be sufficient and overall cheaper. I'd go with R8.3 if you're going to make them your main/secondary and want to later upgrade them further (Twilight Soul and higher). G16 also works fine since its a…
  • That makes me a bit sad, honestly. I did try to get a run or two for QSM sometime back (as I have an interest in the Penumbra weapons) but there just isnt interest. Maybe if they put the Boundless R9 items as potential rewards that would change, but it would be boutique revenue lost to potentially revive an instance.... As…
  • Oof. Guess I'd better convert my coins and sell them off asap Well, thats an...interesting change. Its faster rep for sure, and free at that, but it would hurt the market for those emblems now that they wont be collectible outside of WS. I doubt anyone would do that, but eh, not much different than the other CS related…
  • While the buffer period's good for adjusting and all.... Just how would one go about converting silvers to gold if gold is the only currency type that could be traded between players once the buffer period ends? I'm guessing it would be totally impossible from that point if they stay true to the "shut down" written here? I…
  • This is a pretty interesting topic. I was considering going the R8.3 route for my Barb's weapon as well since I felt mildly annoyed not having the ability to get GoF on NV3 and R9 isnt really on the table from the sheer cost of its required materials. I'm also curious how costly G17.3 would be in comparison since you could…
  • Increasing the Star Chart levels is one thing, but limiting you based on Astral Energy AND putting the item to level the charts as a Treasure item too is utterly insane.
  • Farming in this game certainly is something else. As mentioned above, you'll want alts, as many as you can handle for sure. Startup/Early Game: JoJ (preferably with a character at each "level range" to get as many quests/coins as possible per day) Merchanting (Shards, Mirages, Tokens, some Low Level material drops/Banker…
  • Here's the way I see it: >JFSP (BH) Doable with G15/16 and more, no problem. As long as you have someone who can tank Toad and friends, its pretty easy. >JFSP (MBH) There are more mechanics and depending on the group, you may have to actually do them. You may also not be able to speedkill Belle Lune, but that just means…
  • Or you can just get a Psychic with Sage Bubble of Life....shouldn't be that hard to find one, right?
  • This is disappointing. I'm guessing DS - Argent effect is the same like most other Argent skills in that it deals more damage to Silenced targets. The Ultimate's negative effect being reduced is something, I guess, but its still a short burst window on a 5 minute Cooldown, so the change doesnt amount to that much value.…
  • While Spirit's a part of the equation, its just a notable piece of it. When it comes to PvP, the big problem is the sheer cost of acquiring the pieces to even start contending if you dont have a steady influx of coin from either frequent merchanting or farming... Assuming you've got R9.3 at least a rough estimate would…
  • I had this same problem once. Its really tempting to stretch yourself thin to gear up alts with Sky Levels and passives (on top of other Daily "commitments"), but you really should avoid if possible. I basically to cut my activity around 6 characters down to 2 characters max for Vitae+HS+BH quests (usually skip MBH unless…
  • I'd actually imagine a NP+G17 Barb would be pretty insane, but the general idea is that you can get around needing a Barb if your people are well geared. Gear in general skews class balance almost as much as certain skills/effects do.
  • Honestly, I dont see them asked around for much, but it may just be on my server (Etherblade). The only time Ive seen specific requests for them are (Deicide)FSP as of late when Spark Killing isnt an option. Otherwise, they're considered in the same vein as any other DD. It isnt to say that Barbs cant carry their own…
  • No GMs to actively keep this place up and running. I think there's only one Mod left, no actual moderator team. We dont even have a new blessing code or regular Maint threads these days. What's going on?
  • Thanks for the responses guys~ So the only way is QSM / Trials? I'm guessing that makes material gathering incredibly difficult for it... Do other players sell the mats often? At the very least if I cant farm the instances (dont normally see groups for QSM and I doubt its soloable) then farming the coin to buy the mats…
  • Yeah, totally. Mine is just as such because I cant afford R9 as things are, so I guess it could be called a "budget" version.
  • APS Archer was always a bit strange to me since they never got Bloodpaint (at least from what I remembered). That said, an APS Barb is pretty fun since you can get Bloodpaint and still do decent damage. Demon Poison Fang can make up for the lack of Fist Mastery to a degree, and you can gain extra burst Crit chance from…
