    In my case, A LOT, i did a lot of low level quests, enjoyed getting titles, killing bosses. Actually, i spent a lot of time farming kinah from named bosses in Cygnea. I leveled through the campaign quests of all the maps and it was really nice going through the low level maps, which, in my opinion, look WAY better than the crap of Iluma and Lakrum.

    Now you can do all the quests in the game and get to lvl 80 in less than one day xD. and the quests are crap!! The starting quest basically progress by clicking ok in the dialog all the time xD It's like a game for millenials who don't wanna get tired moving the char around.

    Because like I mentioned in my post above you already did them and there is no way to repeat them unless u had an alt. The only thing I believe people would be pissed off by is if they didn't have time to finish all these quests that were being wipe to get said titles. Or were working on getting a title such as the one I have here https://imgur.com/5ENR85k , which I believe many people work on but not a lot achieve it by this patch.

    "Low level quests (Basically no worthy rewards hence only few people like yourself will bother)"
    Doesn't matter if only 10% of the server enjoyed doing them, it's ~1000 quests that don't exist anymore..

    Ok. I mean if you've done the quest before and its gone then so be it, its gone. Its not like you can repeat the said quest so why even complain about it?

    "Killing bosses for kinah (Don't we have that in lakrum now? Besides cygnea wasn't exactly a no PvP zone)"
    Nope, currently is almost impossible to produce kinah in any way (trading items in the broker does not generate kinah, only trades it, in fact, it reduces the total amount of it due to taxes). Cygnea wasn't a no pvp zone, but it wasn't a shared map either, it had (has) portals which yeah, put a couple asmos sometimes, but not ALL OF THEM all the time.

    I understand broker only moves kinah but look you still get kinah for yourself. How about stop caring about something you can't handle which only NCsoft can handle for now? About the PvP part, i'll be real honest how often are you even killed in lakrum? Because I've just been farming for close to 5 hours? And I've only died like 4 times? And ever heard of a kisk? Yea I put this thing called a kisk very close to my farm spot so I don't have to teleport and run back to said location.

    "Campaign quests leveling (Haven't we all done that on at least one character. Wot? Unless you mean you repeat the whole process on alts knowing there are better ways to level?"
    I don't have alts, only my main (Chanter). And with the late 400% exp buff other ways were better, without it, quest was one of the best ways.

    If you don't have any alts, why are you even talking/complaining about campaign quests not to mention quests in general like above? Its not like you ever experienced them again since you only have your one and only chanter. (Here i'm gonna quote your original posts below) Like look, if you've done it you've done it, like I mentioned above, you can't repeat quests unless you have an alt. If you had alts maybe I can understand why your complaining but the thing is you don't have alts.

    I mean, compared to Verteron, Eitnen, Theobomos, etc (the low lvl maps).

    May I know how often you actually step foot into these maps? Verteron, Eltnen, Theobomos? Once everyday? Once a week? Once a month?

    "Getting to 80 in a day (I'm sorry but what is the point of leveling slowly?)"
    Brother, that IS the point of an rpg game!!! It's like saying.. "Why would you want to shoot in a shooter game?" An rpg works in a reward-for-effort mechanic, currently, as the one before this post said, this game is not an rpg anymore, it has become a mobile game. Now you can't fail, now you can't do anything else but one path, which will take you to the end stage no matter what. You can't farm kinah, you can't trade anything, basically the only way of getting equipment is doing instas, which have a fixed number of entries per week and a fixed probability of the drops. Apply a bit of statistics and you will realize that every char has the same expected value of time for getting his full equipment.

    And brother, if I like the leveling process, I would have played a game like maplestory where the level cap is 250 if i'm not wrong. Different rpg games have different objectives set by the developers. Unfortunately Aion now is a game where the developers want you to get to end game quick and start doing end game stuff like gearing. Remember back in 5.0 when people started quitting cause of how hard it is to reach level 75? I literally only hit 75 like 2 months before patch 6.2. So to actually say that we all play rpg games to enjoy the leveling process and that that is the point of an rpg game is untrue.

    "An rpg works in a reward-for-effort mechanic" Damn I would totally like it if you told the people complaining about enchanting that to their face.

    "now you can't do anything else but one path" Now this is actually untrue because you can, and I repeat you can decide to just gear yourself in 1 type of gear. PvP or PvE. I literally have legion mates who just log in to spam PvE not kidding, yea maybe there isn't as much PvE instances as before but they still just PvE only. They don't even bother getting the PvP gear.

    "You can't farm kinah, you can't trade anything" For now my dear brother. Use the broker, stop worrying about what you nor I cannot fix aka the fact that broker only moves kinah.

    "basically the only way of getting equipment is doing instas" I don't know about you, but I think this is good, because if people want to actually progress PvE wise, they have to farm their gear themselves. Not buy it off someone and then go to maybe FM or BoS and hurr durr spend half the time dead on the floor or wiping their whole group because they bought gear and have no idea how to actually do the instance.

    "which have a fixed number of entries per week" You raise this point but you fail to realise that since 4.0 or even prior because I didn't play pre 4.0, everything already had a fixed number of entries per week.

    "fixed probability of the drops. Apply a bit of statistics and you will realize that every char has the same expected value of time for getting his full equipment." Same expected time. Therefore everyone is equal. Is that not good?

    "You guys complain in other threads that you don't get enough kinah"

    Careful there, i've NEVER complained about the kinah i "get", i complained about the kinah that i can PRODUCE (see the other answer). Now there is NO way of producing kinah (all the kinah in the server comes from selling item to the npc, the broker/trades only moves it around, but every single cent comes from selling a dropped item).

    Again as I've repeated many times above, this is something neither you nor I can fix so how about just use the broker for now and just care about yourself instead of the server.

    "You guys complain about xforms cause furry hater and run speed but aren't happy when the quest is just clicking. What in the world"
    I've never complained about that, in fact, if you look at my posts, you will see i've always said that is stupid to complain about an optional feature (transformations).

    Were you one of those guys in 5.8 who actually ran around with no scrolls?

    Now you can do all the quests in the game and get to lvl 80 in less than one day xD. and the quests are crap!! The starting quest basically progress by clicking ok in the dialog all the time xD It's like a game for millenials who don't wanna get tired moving the char around.

    Lets break it down

    Low level quests (Basically no worthy rewards hence only few people like yourself will bother)

    Killing bosses for kinah (Don't we have that in lakrum now? Besides cygnea wasn't exactly a no PvP zone. If you had played in 4.8 you will realise that groups and alliances fight over bosses on both cygnea and enshar. Yes perhaps it was harder to PvP because map was basically linear (worst map design imo, the elyos shit storm/guard huggers I and many others had to deal with just to get to ORB) with walls and guards at every intersection and also the fact we had to rift)

    Campaign quests leveling (Haven't we all done that on at least one character. Wot? Unless you mean you repeat the whole process on alts knowing there are better ways to level? Yes I know for story sake but dun u get bored reading the same story over and over?)

    Lakrum and iluma looks like crap (Nani? Ok, if it looks like crap to u I guess it is since its a matter of perspective. But imo better map design than enshar/cygnea. Lakrum may look like crap in your opinion but at least the whole map is much more relevant than kaldor/levinshor/iluma/norsvold put together)

    Getting to 80 in a day (I'm sorry but what is the point of leveling slowly? You guys complain in other threads that you don't get enough kinah bla bla bla but u dun want to get to end game fast to start farming kinah? Not to mention I also saw some post about taking a week to level. Well forums is a cesspool of contradictions but o well)

    Quests is just clicking (You guys complain about xforms cause furry hater and run speed but aren't happy when the quest is just clicking. What in the world)

    This update didn't add content, it WIPED 90% of the game content, didn't add features, it WIPED 90% of the game features and switched the others into the most stupid mechanics ever (not RPG ones).

    Wiped content that were irrelevant to begin with. Besides danaria/katalam wipe in 4.8 I don't see how bad the current map wipe is because in norsvold/iluma there is literally zero point I tell you, to leave the center area of the map because that is where instance entrances are and quests around the map were literally not worth your time doing. (Not gonna mention low level maps because come on, how often do u enter them? Just for bulk essencetapping purpose and leave?) How often do you use the old crafts either in 5.8? Besides alchemy, the mats for armorsmithing/tailoring were hard af to get because no one farms those mats. Plus I would put a guess that you only used alchemy like every 3 months? To bulk craft.

    1) Maybe you should avoid replying to my topics and or avoid reading what I post then. No one forces you to enter my threads just to say "you're wrong" and "everything is fine" despite the fact that there are people who support my stance and far less who support yours. Strange isn't it?

    I don't know delessa, I just seem to love forum PvPing you. Puts a smirk on my face.

    2) Why yes, at a 10% chance on success. So let me see, for ancient at 28%, you will net the +2 roughly 3 times. For legendary at 5%, you will net it at most, once out of 100 stones which translates into a full week of camps/weekly kill quests for crystals. Math really isn't your strong point is it?

    Second best, science is better.

    20 minutes ago, Delessa-DN said:

    notice why I stick to math alone and refrain from mentioning myself or making it about me alone?

    Maybe because you have been sitting on your arse in town all day refraining from zombie grinding to afford some legendary stones besides those from siege/PvP instances and haven't actually been doing anything to experience it yourself (besides wasting ancient enchants) and hence have no other evidence besides math to support you?

    1) as you have misrepresented "I'm just an average player" off the get go, what's to make me believe you didn't stack omegas/tempers for stones? You obviously have a vested interest in trying to "prove" me and others who think like "wrong" as in you obviously think we should all just suck it up and either zombie grind it, or quit.

    Well believe what you want then, LUL. Yea I would appreciate if you zombie grind or quit. Been see-ing you just standing around in town complaining here.

    6 minutes ago, Delessa-DN said:

    Refer to the math above. Oh and the chance of getting +12 with ancients is 0.25%.

    May I point out the fact there is something called a +2 proc?

    6 minutes ago, Delessa-DN said:

    3) Why yes, by definition because winning a lottery is only 1/26 million it's not impossible; just neigh impossible and improbable for practically everyone. Is that what you're trying to argue? Because it's not 0 it's fine?

    Well I must be the luckiest person to have 5 pieces purified already then. Its ok, i'll keep the screenshots up in the coming weeks. Glhf continue throwing the ancient stones on your ancient gear and believing that should be the way to +15 it. Perhaps sometimes its a matter of are you doing something right instead of "rng rng".


  7. 15 minutes ago, Delessa-DN said:

    1) We're taking you purely at your word that you have none of the aforementioned items. Without seeing all your gear and what you had at the beginning of this patch I'm taking that with a huge grain of salt - especially given that you seemingly have ultimate gear already and I see harvester gear - implying compensated gear. You talk about being an "average F2P player" yet your own screenshot suggests anything but that. You might have been F2P but certainly not average; I can imagine for example, abusing events like snowball events with multiple accounts and max alts to farm billions upon billions of kinah.

    Well, now that you point that out yea sure I guess in your terms not average. I started this patch with 400m and that is on the low side already. I have legion mates who started patch with 9b kinah. Maybe to you 400m is alot but to me 400m isn't alot. Also why are we talking about compensated gear (yea I decided to sacrifice kinah over gear compensation pre patch) here when the whole point i'm trying to show you with the screenshot is that it isn't impossible to +15 items and purify them?

    15 minutes ago, Delessa-DN said:

    2) Math is math. 28% for ancient past +10 and 55/35/15% for legendary up to +0/4/7. To imply that you can reach +10 with ancient on legendary is absurd, the probabilities do not support it nor in fact do your own screenshots. If it took 100 stones to reach +5 on one piece then effectively it's confirmation of the probabilities: +0-3 = 16%, 3-5 = 12.5%.

    Bruh how in rage or tears are you? Can you even read what I typed in the previous post?

    Untrue. Past +12 for ancient and past +5 - 10/+12 - 15 for purple and above.

    Based on your previous rant.

    2) ancient stones are useless past +10 and useless past +3 for purple and above

    I'm correcting you that ancients are useless past +5 - 10 and from +12 - 15 for purple and above. Which part of my sentence implied that you can reach +10 with ancients on legendary?

    15 minutes ago, Delessa-DN said:

    4) Apparently you can't do math.

    End of the day what I'm trying to tell you great o veteran who apparently gives NCsoft alot of money unlike me and think they should listen to what you have to say is, don't let the math tilt you. Because its 2.5% doesn't mean its impossible because RNG is RNG. I thought you knew this game was a casino? 

    O and also I forgot to add since i'm addressing your main issues. That just because its 28% with ancient stones on ancient gear past +10 doesn't mean you can't use ancient because +10 is a fail safe you don't drop below it. I mean if you want to waste legendary stones starting at +10 on ancient gear sure go ahead. Also no I didn't use 100 stones to get to +5 legendary. More like a mere 30. And ancient stones are free flow FYI.

    1) legendary stones are RNG and by no means guaranteed from instance bundles. I have 8 out of 30+ bundles, that's hardly "farmable", it's RNG on top of RNG. Please don't talk if you had X omegas/tempering solutions stacked up from last patch and exchanged hundreds of stones. You don't count.

    Refer to the previous post.

    3) Upgrades from 10-15 give the highest bonuses anyways; people being stonewalled at ancient because of RNG is absurd. If anything it should be possible to +15 ancient with ancient if the +15 system is the way to go, it's not currently.

    If you wish to sit on your arse till 6.5 then sure thing. Otherwise its about time to use some legendary stones.

    14 minutes ago, Delessa-DN said:

    3a) RNG isn't hard, it's not difficult, it's RNG. There is absolutely nothing that a player can do to affect it currently; before you could use omegas, you could use greater supplements to stack the odds, now, you cannot.

     

    1 minute ago, Delessa-DN said:

    The chance of getting +15 with ancient stones is 0.17%, you can find this number with a simple probability calculation of 28% to the power of 5 which is how many attempts are needed from +10.

    It's not happening.

    The chance of getting +15 from +10 with legendary stones is significantly better but still absurdly low at 2.5%.

    Yea I can do math better than Kailor. Math shows that its absurdly low but rng is rng and it seems like the imgur link I linked above is a testament to rng. The game has been filled with rng for a long long time. If your a vet you should understand that you just deal with it.

    Quick someone put up an EU translated time just so our fellow NA folks can understand.

    Hope NCwest fixes the timings soon instead of following KR's. Heck, won't more instance pop timings on every single day be beneficial to everyone world wide.
