  1. Weekly Server Maintenance - November 6, 2019

    This event sounds a lot better on paper than the function it actually serves. The event says that it’s made to “help gear up faster”. Hmm... As a rerolled main, I’m in the same boat as all the people wanting to +9 or higher their vandal’s stigmas. Yet I can’t get higher than +3 or +4 without failing back down. I can’t even hit the +6 threshold on half my stigmas! A nice addition to the stigma side of the event would be a replication of the stigma protection boosts we had for using any type of enchantment method (+0 stigmas or enchant stones) with a rate boost (but certainly this is asking too much)
  2. Error 2009 (help me!!)

    I used to get this error a lot when my WiFi takes a crap for ten minutes every so often...I have since started running in compatibility mode like @Gabe-DN suggested and this happens a LOT less to me now. I'd second trying compatibility mode, since if you have Windows 10 it tends to mess with the client in various ways for everyone.
  3. motions and skins that should be back on the BCM

    The Hovering Set too for the same price as the Ninja Set, since it was purchasable *with kinah* from the Tavern NPC forever...I'd buy it for sure for my Vandal and my AT.
  4. October Store Suggestions

    What happened to the IO jetpack skin! I want it so badly, that's probably one of my favorite wing skins of all time. And I miss the old Kunax skins...Also... CIPHER BLADE SKINS PLEASE! The panda, the bunny...good ol' shugo...y'know. Or just weapon skins in general: Oh shugo mech, you'll live on in my dreams, nyerk nyerk...
  5. @OnlyOne-DN No problem! I'm glad I've inspired you, gunner will always have a special place in my heart. Practice makes perfect. Failure is the best way to learn, so I hope you've learned what you need to do and take action
  6. Alright, I'll bite... I'll go ahead and answer to you simply why gunner feels so bad: you are not max geared, and you don't pvp. I played gunner at the very beginning of 5.0 before I quit and returned at the beginning of 5.8. I played my gunner through 6.x and about a month before 7.0, I've rerolled AT. But hear me out. I decided to no longer play my gunner because I felt what you were feeling, and I asked myself quite a bit why gunner felt so awful. I have pretty good ping. My rotations are decent. I can switch between cannon and pistols quickly. Why was my damage lacking? Well... Gunner performs very poorly in PvE, because of the reasons you mentioned. However, very geared gunners (such as Rick and XYZX to name the main two that pop into my head) have good DPS. Have good damage in PvPvE. They are geared. If you want to play gunner after 5.0, you better be prepared to omega-swipeu or work your tail off. Because you will get nothing accomplished as a gunner if you are mediocre, or not willing to put in the money or energy to be fully geared to compensate for the fact that gunners do not get a lot of passive buffs like other classes do. If you are not in majority red as a gunner in PvE, you better bring some high dps with you to things to carry your damage. Because a half geared PvE gunner isn't gonna do it sis... As far as PvP, while the same applies, you better check your daevanion skills. Because if you don't have the purple trunk shot....oof. You're missing the true beauty of gunner PvP. While gunner doesn't do as much damage as the other classes do, they are full of CC and utility, and the ability to kite off opponents until the end. Mobility and utility are the true strengths of a gunner, especially in full purple (like I was this past patch). PvP in a group is even better for gunners if you and your team can communicate effectively BECAUSE of the versatility of gunner CC. Silence, stun, sleep, root...slow...Because of these things, a smart, well practiced gunner can stand toe to toe with any other class if you know what you're doing, have the right daevanion skills, and the gear. Being a good gunner is all about persistence, honestly. It's hard if you didn't have the head start in 5.8 for decent compensation in 6.x. I rerolled because I'm a fairly busy person...I know I don't have the time and I'm not willing to spend the money to gear myself heavily in PvP, which is what I enjoyed most about playing gunner. If you aren't willing to put in the work and only want to complain, then reroll. I'm serious, not trolling or anything. But you're wasting your time being half geared and complaining, if you want to be good, put in the effort to be strong. It's not like NCSoft will balance Gunslinger to be easier just because you asked, lol. So work with what you have and get geared ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  7. Rollback incoming?

    The minion contracts and green stigma bundles were free from the lockbox vendor. So, everyone has a ton of guaranteed A minions, not just Cute contracts.The lockbox vendor was also removed.

    I'm with Van on this one...I was one of the people who was on early running instances to try and figure out the details of the event because NCSoft didn't post them until 1pm. It feels pretty bad now that they doubled the rewards even though I was up early running things to have a grasp of the situation. Sucks I don't get compensated for those runs on my main, but at least all of my alts will get the double boxes.
  9. Weekly Server Maintenance - August 7, 2019

    doing the math... If you have the worst RNG, you'll get 5 gems per box from 8 runs (4 CoE, 4 without prestige. 5 x 8 = 40 Gems a week, 50 Gems a week with prestige. If you have the best RNG, you'll get 50 gems per box (if you do I hate you because you're hacking zzz) from 8 runs, 400 Gems a week, 500 with prestige. So, if this event lasts two weeks (assuming it ends when 7.0 hits because CoE and Mirash go poof), it's impossible even for the person with hack op RNG that gets 50 a box every time, couldn't attain the legendary box (which is random transform, not selectable btw) for 1200 gems. Everyone is going to fall on the lower side of this, probably getting from 80-250 gems a week because the 10 gems seem to proc a decent amount... I'm willing to reset a few runs if it would help me get what I need 100%...but considering someone with perfect luck couldn't get the legendary xform without a few resets too? YIKES.

    If NCSoft isn't going to give us the event info before the event is out, then I guess we have to piece it together ourselves... It seems that you will get Ice Gem boxes from Bosses (NOT 100% DROP, and no one has said yet that they have gotten boxes from normal instance mobs like last End of the World). Open the boxes and they will give from 5-50 Ice Gems. Turn in the Ice Gems for rewards. So far, the event vendor looks VERY similar to the flower event. here's screenshots of the vendor rewards: Regular Sale Page 1 2 Limited Sale Page 1 The boxes are dropping from CoE and Mirash so far, but no one has gotten them from FM. Perhaps they are only dropping from instances that are disappearing?
  11. Weekly Server Maintenance - August 7, 2019

    PLEASE make the End of the World event worthwhile...I'm talking: Ancient/Legendary Transform Contracts Fighting Spirit Fragments AT LEAST Legendary PvPvE Stones, if not a possibility of Ultimate PvPvE The fragments alone would help so many people out and make them feel a little better about 7.0 coming, including myself. If you choose to listen to community suggestions ever, let this be the time!
  12. Your Painter's name

    I've had my painter's name picked out since the class was announced in Korea: His name is Nouveau! Level one, saved and ready to go.
  13. Weekly Server Maintenance - July 24, 2019

    Ah I see, so you guys really ARE trying to tank the game so hard that you can shut it down. I'm not even surprised at this point. It's almost like NCWest is having a competition to see which dev's decisions lose them the most money. I'm not even going to ask the questions I want answered because I know it's just a waste of time. It's not in one ear without the other with NC, it's the fact that they don't have ears at all. When will they learn from games that have vast staff in their forums always answering questions and being transparent with their community?
  14. Whatever, right?! List things you would like back/new in Aion!

    I completely agree. They keep screwing us over time and time again and we're all either too stubborn or too attached to this silly game after all these years to let it die. Essentially with all the things we'd be asking for, we're asking for one thing: Proper management of Aion: not screwing over your loyal player base completely for the whales that will pay to win hardcore as the last cash grab before shutting down the game. There's no reason for NCWest to treat the last of us the way they have aside from wanting to push us away and tank the game. Only ONE staff member who is only the community manager and is only the messenger to whatever devs that exist, literally the worst ways of compensating us for years of grinding and work, silly bugs and glitches that have been around for months if not years for some of them, opening a server for a dying game expecting it to succeed, among so many more things. When will we let Aion die, ugh...
