    I know you don't NEED it but, that's winning, being the best and, that means the best gear. Have to buy, can't level crafting nor get the mats to make enough for even one day in one day or, as I choose to do to save kinah and $$$$$, not use transformations, vendor the pots, sell any rare contract I might get. I can't craft or buy enough transparent scrolls to last a full day in a day, so, no point using 1 or 2 xforms per day, 20 mins is useless. I refuse to pay to see default so, those scrolls have to be free or, I won't use them.

    I SAID PVE Legendary, full set +15 becasue that's the pay to win and, unless you have the best gear, you aren't winning.

    Winning means +15 ultimate get real, anyone who does +15 PvE legendary is stupid af.


  2. Did you at least try asking them for a restoration back into genesis crystals? All I saw in your picture was asking them to literally swap it to vindicator. You might lose the enchants yes but at least its something.

    Support can be hard headed at times so might want to try phrasing it differently in your message to them.

    I got my Ancient weapon to +15 with about 200 ancient stones the problem for me is the 100 Ancient fighting spirit fragments that are needed to upgrade. What is everyone doing to get these? My crafting is only at lvl 52 and costs alot of non existant kinah to lvl it, are people just buying crafted gear to disenchant off broker or buying the gear with crystals to disenchant?

    Wow you are lucky... you actually got a piece to 15?

    I got a lot of +10 but after that it fails no matter what for me so I'm not understanding how they expect us to upgrade this new PVP gear without any PVP stones and terrible enchantment rates... It's like they forgot something or I am totally missing something.

    I also thought they were going to try to close the gap in PVP but seems like they have just made it worse for new or returning players by giving absolutely  no path to victory... weekly's should be daily's to make this game interesting again as many people are leaving complaining in chat about the patch and how boring it is... When someone has to wait a week to start char progression back up it does get pretty boring in between.

    I really like AION always have but I feel like it's on life support for real now...  The AION team needs to give us a way to get A LOT more PVP stones and improve enchanting rates or all this work is for nothing as the population will fall off of a cliff again very shortly and we do not want that!

    This patch is a grindy one my friends, no place for casuals imo. What do you do when you exhaust camps? Grind mobs for materials to craft gear to disenchant to get fighting spirit fragments or for kinah to then buy crafted gear to disenchant. As bad as everyone makes enchanting out to be, this still can't be worse than black desert online's enchanting.

    Oh really, okay, then you tell me how to get a full +15 Legendary PvE set in a week or less without paying A LOT of cash for all those stones? Not to mention how to get transparent transformation scrolls for free, or even get enough in a week for one day of playing? At 10 mins per scroll, that's 6 per hour, at 10 hours per day played, that's 60 per day, 420 per week for each character, eight characters so that's 3360 scrolls per week - tell me where to get that many in game without paying for them. (yes that includes without paying kinah because to make kinah, you have to buy stuff that sells with REAL CASH.) a few million is NOT having kinah in this game, need 4-5 BILLION kinah to get anywhere close to top geared.

    Firstly, you don't need full +15 Legendary PvE set to attempt PF or IDD. Those who have +15 Legendary PvE are probably those you see in compensation gear because no one in their right mind would exchange their omegas/tempers from the previous patch to PvE legendary stones or even pay cash for said stones unless they are like you period. Pretty sure Ereshkigal is talking with respect to PvP. To add on, you a PvE loving and furry hating player needs to stop tainting every single post there is with your personal furry issue because for your info buying transparent xforms with real life dollars is not p2w its pay to stupid (LEMME JUST BOLD THIS FOR YOU) if you actually think your going to make a lot of kinah off that real dollar to kinah ratio via transparent xforms compared to other possible stuff on the bcm then you should really stop wasting your real life dollars because no sane player is going to actually buy transparent xform scrolls off broker unless they are already loaded with kinah not to mention your getting outplayed by the players who just craft these transparent xform scrolls in game and sell it to others.

    Sounds hard enought for me. But then again, i already got my transformation. You have to consider the casuals. Not everyone has the time to do that, and those people help to populate the servers.

    I'm refering to this when I wrote that.

    Not refering to your "I agree with almost everything, with the exception being that you cant play the game looking like a transform. But i do agree that you should be able to make it invisible in a cheaper way and preferably with ingane kinah."

    I agree, broker fees and taxes are INSANE. I'd quit shopping in my town if I had to pay 30% in just fees and taxes to shop there. NO WAY! 10% fee and 5-6% tax I can see, but as is, it's highway robbery.

    Example: Alt is level 30, has only 600 kinah due to travel and food costs. I have main with 3 billion on it, want to get 10 mil to alt but, alt cannot afford to list anything on the broker to get the money and, I'd loose 30% of it in the transfer. That's a 300,000 Kinah loss - INSANE, not happening, NC Moneygrubber has gone mad. Alt is stranded, cannot afford to teleport to the next zone, must be deleted and try again but, same thing happens 9 of 10 times - no kinah to travel to the next quests.

    Hey i'll just repeat what I said in another post here because your delusional thinking needs to stop. 

    Hey bro, we have already given you evidence in the form of a picture (can't remember if it was in this thread) that you are taxed 2.2% on registering item and followed by 11.2% broker fee after selling the item and that adds up to a total of 13.4% loss of the total price of the item. Stop being delusional for heaven's sake. You can be a furry hater all you want but stop denying facts.

    1 hour ago, Kailor-DN said:

    Fee PLUS TAX = Cost of selling = LOSS per sale and, that's roughly 30%. Quests don't give enough food, have to buy more or use those silly transformation pots, which I won't do. Why have a character creator if you're going to use transformations, just take whatever the game gives you, doesn't matter, you'll all look like puppies, clowns, rainbow penguins and, the Coca Cola bear all of the timne anyway, so who care what your character actually looks like?

    Half the reason i like Aion is because you can crate good looking characters. Why in the world do they think we want to hide them under stupid cartoon costumes?

    As for casinos, yes, it's a loosing game PERIOD, if you're playing thinking you'll win, you're nuts, the casinos don't have the cheap, luxury foods and fancy decor by letting you win-  they have it by taking your money on the games. Odds of winning are VERY low, like the odds of getting an ultimate transformation with a free contract - might happen to ONE in 100,000 people if that. You have a better chance of dying in a plane crash.

    And let me repeat yet again in case it hasn't sank in.

    Tax PLUS broker fee to list item - yes you loos 30% roughly that way. Have to add that to the price of the item since that's the cost of selling it.

    Hi guys, I've played aion for some time and I liked the game in general. I had to quit the game because nearly nobody is online the times I can play (time difference) . Are there more opportunities for the people who like to go solo in 6.0? Or is aion worth returning for a player who rarely finds people to play with? All help is appreciated :D

    Well, I'll advise staying away from the forums and playing through the game actually to experience it. You'll seriously only find furry haters here.

    And on EU contracts cost 12.375M each. With a weekly account-wide fee of 79.2M for 8 chars on NA, 2 "free" contracts from the kinah you don't spend, you get to exactly 99M which is what you'll pay weekly account-wide in EU for 8 chars. Only small difference is that they have eleven char slots vs our eight.

    And, of course, both regions have deflation, although I would say it's a bit stronger in EU because even with the minor fix they did to the kinah nerf, their drop rate is slightly worse than ours.

    I believe our side has stronger deflation now tbh. EU raised their sales to 15% instead of our 10% and their instance last bosses literally drop a huge money bag of kinah unlike ours am I not right? Again NCwest has to address the kinah income < kinah sink issue. @Cyan

    Hey man, don't listen to @Raiuken-KT and @MetaBlack-KT these guys are what we now call furry haters.


  11. @Guhvorn-KT

    #F2PDoneRight Its ok most people won't understand us hard workers.

    @Konkers-EK

    #JustF2PTryHardThings You won't understand let's stop the conversation between the both of you because you are on completely different levels of understanding.

    O and let's just leave the 2 furry hating non xform trolls alone shall we? If people don't want to play the game as intended and like to blind fold themselves to the fact that broker tax is 13.4% not 30% then let them be. We've done enough.


  12. A smarter way of doing things is to sell said items at the usual price.

    Then you give your legion mate the kinah back by having your legion mate selling something else problem solved.

    Yes 13.4% tax in total I know.

    Trading through broker is not intended but players work around the system.

    Hence it is upon us ourselves to ensure our work around works.

    No trading isn't a new concept, it is present even in games like black desert online.

    Side note yeah I also want to know why Aion shifted into this no-trading policy.


  13. Our modern world is an increasingly connected one, our mobile devices keep us closer than ever to our friends, family and loved ones. So we knew, we want to use mobile devices as the platform for a new diablo game. Because nothing brings the family together like slaying demons.

    In the past, players who couldn't win PvP (whether because of skill, gear, or some other factor) could PvE for PvP gear.

    Hmmm

    "O and just so you know, you can't afk dredge if your looking for rewards besides ap if you didn't already know about the changes this patch."

    I didn't know. You and some other posters stated that even if you lost dredge, you "still get tons of rewards if you lose." So I just argued based off the assumption that what you said was true and that you do receive good rewards for losing.

    I read the message on top, then I read till this portion of your wall of text and then it dawned on me that there really is no point keeping this conversation going because at the end of the day, your just going to refute my statements, we will never reach common ground at this current point in time. If after 2 weeks, all you can tell me is that you argued based off assumptions, then it clearly shows that within this period of time, you have not stepped foot into dredge least to say about the other content this patch has to offer. You have not explored the entirety of this patch and as such we are completely on different levels of understanding hence to reiterate, we will never reach common ground. Before I totally stop replying to any of your post in this thread i'll just address your message on top, "In the past, players who couldn't win PvP (whether because of skill, gear, or some other factor) could PvE for PvP gear."

    I'm not sure if you played 4.0, but that was when I started this game. Back then, you had blood mark gear and the ceramium medal gear (only the rank 1 version and I think after that it just instantly jumped to only equip-able by great general or something?). Blood mark gear worked like the current camps, you farm tokens from quests from said camps and exchange them for gear. Ceramium medal meanwhile only came from sieges or PvE instances in said forts or this instance called eternal bastion (otherwise known as EB). These were the only sources of ceramium medal if I didn't remember wrongly. Getting blood mark gear was super easy just like how easy it is to get ancient gear from genesis crystals now. But meanwhile, the next best gear back then aka the rank 1 abyss gear which you buy with ceramium medals was near impossible to get for a new player. Yes, you could PvE for PvP gear, but you know what went wrong? The Israphel asmo community back then wasn't simply going to invite some no name sw into their EB runs. We were losing like every siege back then too, meaning we were locked out of the PvE instances that were in the fortresses. It wasn't until patch 4.5, that I actually finished my set (Officer star 2 set because this set was introduced into the game by then and it was better than the rank 1 set from 4.0 of course). Yeah, I understand gear back then compared to now didn't have such a huge disparity. Yeah, I understand you didn't have to +15 gear back then without supplements to then purify them with mats which are grindy af to get to the next best gear. But at least now, I can depend on myself and my own "hard work" (yea sure go ahead and cry rng) to get my gear and not be screwed over by the community running their static EB online. You know what is more frustrating than progressing slowly and getting rekt along the way thanks to the developers? Being totally unable to progress thanks to players. End rant.

    On the side note, after 2 weeks of 6.2, my main and my 2nd main alt which had no legendary enchantment stone compensation have currently achieved the following. Note: Nope I don't have ultimate PvP gear compensation.

    Songweaver

    +5 ultimate compensation PvE weapon using ancient stones from +0 armsfused with ancient genesis crystal PvP weapon

    +5 legendary genesis crystal PvP weapon using ancient stones from +0

    +12 ancient genesis crystal PvP wings using ancient stones from +0 (attempted +15 once but failed 14 -> 15)

    +12 mirash sanctuary PvE wings using ancient stones from +0

    Chanter

    10/16 pieces of ancient genesis crystal PvP gear obtained

    +12 5 pieces of ancient genesis crystal PvP gear using ancient stones from +0 (attempted +15 once on hauberk but failed 14 -> 15)

    Is the progression not comparable to/better than the blood mark -> EB online PvE for PvP heroes in 4.0?

    This shall be my last post.

    1) It's not about the AP, it's about dying and wasting time. AFK dredgion gives similar AP without the nonstop dying factor. People don't like being killed.

    2) More effort than an AFK dredgion for similar rewards.

     

    Besides, you can't use AP for anything. Most players are stuck on the fragments (assuming they can even +15) as the cost to craft as absurdly high. Assuming 1m per fragment and 500k per scroll, you're looking at 2 million per fragment. With 100 needed for a weapon it's 200m for an evolution. Never mind the +15 requirement. End result, nothing worthwhile for most players, compensated players are the only ones who actually bother with sieges.

    People don't do things without incentive, what's the incentive? To get AP - that is pretty much useless, get some fragments - that most can't even use, or get a possible 1-2 legendary stones - that will probably fail? All that for an hour of work? Fun? There's no fun when you do no damage and aren't actually contributing.

     

    This is not a problem unique to Elyos, if it's a problem at all. This is simply players deciding its not worth their time. There are actually many on the Asmodian side who simply stand around during siege as they also see no point in participating.

    Understood, if you veterans/returning players who played pre 5.0 and left for whatever reason and came back and decided that you wish to deny yourself from progressing then no one can help you.

    As much as I just want to stop typing at the previous sentence above, I decided I am going to just address a few of your issues in your post.

    To point number 1, if people really don't like being killed, these guys can simply just get like a kill in the contribution zone to get AP, and just get back to whatever they are doing instead of wasting time because as i've said in my previous post, "Current sieges have rewards that reward up to 1000 players on the losing side and 700 players on the winning side. We do not even approach these numbers on NA so we technically have free hand outs." meaning a little bit of AP is all it takes to be rewarded. We have moved back to the old forming own alliance/league system instead of the coalition system so this is now possible again. Not that i'm asking people not to help their faction take the fort but honestly if you are really so opposed to dying then here I am giving you a solution.

    To point number 2, yes I agree more effort than AFK dredge but do note that they do not give similar rewards. Sieges give ultimate ridium whereas dredges give legendary ridium. Also, as i've highlighted in another thread, the conqueror's gemstone crafting material that you receive from sieges can be sold on broker to crafters for kinah too. Also do note that to obtain any other reward besides AP from dredge, you cannot simply AFK if you didn't already know. You need to kill the bosses in dredge and actually loot them to get said rewards besides AP which as you have mentioned later is not used for anything.

    AP is only mainly used for purification yes.

    As for the fighting spirit fragments, you can grind craft mats yourself open world. No one and let me repeat this, no one is actually making you buy mats off broker. Yes buying mats off broker will hasten the process but there are alternatives, and this alternative aka open world grinding is not a casino quoting your own words in many of your posts. I might have compensated gear but no I do not agree compensated players are the only one bothering with sieges. I unlike some others only have compensated gear but not a single omega or tempering to exchange to legendary pvp stones and with legendary stones so scarce this patch I have to siege on top of doing pvp instances to attempt to get them. You want to know what is the result of that hard work? or as you call it casino gambling since the next thing i'm getting to is enchanting? Yes, I got myself 1 piece of legendary genesis crystal gear already. Call it unregulated casino gambling/rng all you want but with hard work I got there.

    O and to add on, the PvP gearing situation will not change in 6.5, there is no new PvP gear in 6.5 just new PvE, this was meant to be a marathon not a sprint.

    Again, if you wish to keep telling yourself there is no incentive, that it will fail, that you don't do damage hence you won't bother (that's where your alliance comes in play), I can't help you and no one can.

    Why would anyone want to siege if they're worthless in it and only exist to die and feed AP?

    I can't say I blame the average player for ignoring sieges, there's nothing in it for them; they have no gear, nothing that will give them a chance or rewards, why bother?

    1) We gain so much AP now that losing AP doesn't really matter? Of course some people might disagree as i'm sure.

    2) Current sieges have rewards that reward up to 1000 players on the losing side and 700 players on the winning side. We do not even approach these numbers on NA so we technically have free hand outs.

    yes. my friend. 

    If you can have an extra 20% HP with money and a free player cant. you have 20% advantage. 
    If you can ress with full HP using luna and a free player can´t, you also have an advantage. 
    If you can buy hundreds of transformation contracts with money until you get the ultimate and a free player can´t you also have an advantage

    P2W is when your money means that you have an advantage. Sometimes is so big, or sometimes is just 20% advantage. But it exist. And that is what all the people calls "Pay To Win". 

    and maybe is cheap, maybe is just 20%. But it involves real money and gives an advantage. Thats the name for things like that. 

    Do you watch the korean PvP videos? Do you see how fast health melts when people are equally geared? Just let these guys have their pots and luna ress, they can keep the game running.

    I wasn't trying to insult you as a person.  But you should know that with the amount of uproar the community has been showing on the forums, would you want your CM to come out and say SOMETHING?  It's come to a point where we are wondering if our concerns are even being heard.  Just saying something like "Hey guys we know you guys aren't happy with some of the changes in 6.2, we are looking into some improvements... etc.."  

    No idea about you but I prefer cyan keep his silence instead of coming out on every post saying "Hey guys we know you guys aren't happy with some of the changes in 6.2, we are looking into some improvements... etc.."  and then we end up waiting 1 - 2 months for a "fix".

    ...no I played other NCSoft mmo and I quit them as well. We get it, you like the changes, you already said so, you keep coming back to this thread writing how good and joyful it is for you, if you are not trying to persuade us we are wrong then you are here only to brag about yourself, we are all happy you enjoy this patch, we don't and we made a thread about it. Your input on this one made no change in how bad we feel about this patch, other than "haa, I knew about it and I have taken 8x chars with it hahaha you lost your chance" type of replies are not really giving any positive input.

    But also this post was never about you since you do not agree with it but also have nothing to debunk it, you enjoy getting a butt plug by NCSoft, we just don't. We are making a constructive post here, we even learned things we didn't, like transforms being account wide, or the pumpkin event giving a sure ancient contract etc, other people gave a little bit of light, you just played the smart guy who knew all that and is in good standing. If we are a minority no change will be done, if we are the majority and quit the game will be more deserted.

    Trying to be sarcastic about everyone's post here doesn't give you any credit, nor does it change anyone's mind about how bad these game mechanics are.

    NCSoft won't make any changes because we dislike it, so why even post in these forums? Lets close it because whatever we say is irrelevant.

    BUT the changes we wanted were local and relevant to the publisher not the developer, same way the things I said in my first post are local. GameForge (not a developer but a 3rd party publisher got extremely cheap transparent transformation scrolls and a whole different cash shop than us).

    It is possible to give us cheaper transparent transformation scrolls, itis possible for them to lower the broker listing fee and it si possible for them to make getting contracts other way other than paying from your pocket (ie make the BCM contracts broker-able). You see I didn't ask them to fix no-animation cause they are not the developers.

    Even luna daily and weekly were made for Russian servers  first(as I know), then we also got it now Koreans got it as well as a 6.2 feature along with Aion EU, we had luna daily and weekly before Koreans had it. That should probably make most (if not all) of your post pretty irrelevant and out of place.

    You know why I keep coming back to this thread? Cause we have people like you quoting something I said on 4/11/2018. If after everything I wrote, you still refuse to take off your ear muffs and blind fold then so be it. O and for the record this post was never about you either because look at the topic "NC. Danaria Elyos Need Your Help.". I understand KT-Asmo is in sort of the same situation yes but clearly, your post has derailed off the topic too not to mention myself. And also, looks like someone didn't read the patch notes. I find it weird that materials are provided yet unused. And do you really want to mention GameForge? And since when, have I refuted you on the issue of giving cheaper transparent transformation scrolls, lowering broker listing fee and making contracts broker-able? You seem to be flinging all your woes onto the wrong person considering all we talked about was transformation contracts.
