  1. Moral of story, don't waste time on Aion games of chance, the devs make sure the odds are stacked against you. I learnt this many years agp. Stick to the bits of the game that involve minimal RNG.
  2. Why did they shutdown DN too if it's just a KT bug?
  3. Nah, they wont let you have a predictable outcome like do X and get a known reward, it has to be a game of chance biased to fail and waste your life.
  4. Good luck Speaking of blocking, why do I have to put up with Chinese kinah seller ads in /3 chat every hour, every NA server day after day for years. Are the Aion devs being paid to leave the spammers alone?
  5. The pay to win gear inequality is an issue, but I think the real problem is the developers are obsessed with gambling, almost everything has to be a game of chance with a high percentage of failures. That's creates a negative vibe, doesn't matter if it's saving enchant stones up for months only to have them fail and you go backwards in enchant level, or the inability to do camps because there is always an opponent with +15 gear waiting to gank you, usually a sin in coward mode. Those failures also make a negative mood. It's happy moods that make people come back for more, not negative moo

    With decent accessories you can get evasion up, but it is going to take a lot, the average opponent will probably have 14k or more accuracy which you need to exceed to have any real effect, and that's assuming they don't use an accuracy boost skill. I think the trend nowadays is to tune for pdef and mdef which work on every hit.

    Not at all, have a look at a basic Cleric set, such as the Windel you get for starters, the block will be about 1,500 higher by default than the evasion. It takes a lot of work to bridge that difference.
  8. Lakram is rather useless nowadays since 7.5, Do once camp weekly for100 crystals to craft a skill book, The Lakrum gear you can buy with the crystal is 3rd. rate, not worth burning your hourglass over. The only thing that is still ok is doing a HM run for AP. The fort siege use to be good, so the killed that.
  9. You obviously don't play Crimson Katalam very much. You have to be level 5 to buy gear off the Shugos and that's a lot of time wasted if you have many characters. It was fine in 7.3 not anymore when you can only enter the map every other day.
  10. I have ended up deleting half my toons because I can't keep up with the renown daily points maintenance quests. It's a pity, I invested a lot of time into them.
  11. Another thing about the renown system in Crimson Katalam, is it encourage people to level the camp to 2 or 3 for the renown points then leave. Which means people who are there trying to do the weekly sins have to wait and wait and wait. It's horrible compared to 7.3
  12. The Renown points system seems discriminatory, it works against casual players, or those that have several alts. They need to have a serious rethink the time period the points are valid for.
  13. It's almost 7pm PDT now, did it work? I haven't logged on for several hour because it has been pointless for the past couple of weeks.
  14. Your stuff will be there but a lot of it will be obsolete, some things it will give you are credit for, most things you just rubbish. Start doing the new campaign quests to level up and you will get better gear along the way. Don't forget to rename your toons with the name change ticket in your inventory of each one.
  15. Yet when I go in instances the lag sucks, and causes disconnects. I am in the Contaminate Underpath atm and the /ping is unplayable, doesn't even return a result before I get disconnected, 3 times in 5min.
  16. Fixing the lag should be a priority over new events. It's been 2 weeks.
  17. If you play at server time midnight to about 5am it's not too bad.
  18. It's got nothing to do with the servers, because several people have reported that changing to a proxy service like Fastping makes the problem go away instantly. All the proxy service does is change the Internet path used to get to the Aion servers. So it's a communications problem, not a server problem.
  19. I have been doing some observations, and for me the Aion is essentially unplayable during the server time between 4pm and midnight, then it improves dramatically for about 4-5 hours.
  20. The mobs in Crimson Katalam are too hard, they didn't need to do that, they were hard enough already. People are doing the quests to get better gear, yet they make the mobs so tough you need high end gear to kill them. Half my toons cant solo a sin at a camp before it flips unless they are a dps class.
  21. What's the point of a server transfer nowadays when most of the maps are shared between the servers anyway. It's a stealth merge.
  22. A couple of people have reported that using a proxy service fixed the horrible lag, that seems to point the finger at server bandwidth rather than CPU or disk load. So it's most likely an under provisioned data link which only effects certain routes, or some traffic shaping which I suggested in a previous post. Whatever the bandwidth issue is, more players online causes worse lag. Now is about the worst time of the day. ie. Server time is 6pm ping is 24,439ms and took 2min to return that result on the screen.
  23. We should not need to use 3rd. party proxy servers like Battleping or Exitlag to bypass the road blocks NCsoft have inserted for certain classes of users. I don't use a proxy, I am in Australia, and my ping has been reasonable all the way up to Aion 7.3 since 7.5 came out the lag went crazy. It's either technical bungling, or a deliberate cost cutting measure, which I do not know.
  24. What country are you in?
  25. It seems to depend on the number of players logged on at the time. eg. When the US is asleep the lag improves. It's also effecting all servers. I would like to know if players in the US are experiencing the lag, or is it just players in other countries. I am in Australia and the lag is very bad 2,000ms-30,000ms ping times. My ping for Aion 7.3 was about 200ms-250ms by comparison.
