    Not true, they actually have run temporary classic servers a few times in Korea as an attempt to gauge the interest they were short lived partially due to the way they were set up not truly being classic with the items in the shop. They said in the Dev video that it is in fact here to stay they with slow the pace of the patches as necessary. The daeva pass only gives the same items as the item you get for free in the same daeva pass. I guess you missed it in the thread or didn't read previous posts as HealingSquid kindly took a SS of the pass itself you just get more consumables and candies that you already get for free from the same pass. The only thing you do not get is the high level enchant stones you do in fact get the low level ones from the pass. The cash shop only has ticket for name change, surgery, gender change, legion, and limited skins  and consumables so I don't see the issue here. The fact that people can pay money for extra rewards means they do not have to craft or purchase the consumables from the broker I see nothing wrong with this and it helps to keep the dev team funded for future things for classic as you stated its not free so they need money to keep putting workers on future development. The fact that NA has not made a Classic only speaks to what Korea allows NA to do within the licensing rights. Most of the players do in fact play Retail and Classic. With Classic being live for just over 2 weeks now Retail has yet to see any harm from the Classic patch Retail as well has a playerbase that outnumbers the size of the Classic patch although Classic does in fact have 4 full servers the servers capacity is smaller than Retail. I hit lvl 50 yesterday and I am now done with Classic I will play out the rest of my sub then I will just watch and maybe come back every now and again when I feel there is something interesting happening.

    The issue is people hyping up the Classic server as some sort of blessing that will save the game.  Whether it's been out for two weeks or two months, over time they will start adding things for players to buy in order to cash in on the nostalgia. Who knows, maybe they'll actually release this "Aion 2" because of all this.

  2. I'm gonna chime in and let you people know a thing or two.

    The classic server in Korea is meant to run from 1.x til 2.7, implying it will shut down after that. This shows NCSOFT had always the ability to run an older version of the game from the very beginning, telling petty lies saying "it's not possible".

    In KR they have that Daeva pass, which while it sounds good to the outside eyes, it is heavily p2w. The items given there are tradeable, meaning you can throw your wallet in there and sell that on broker, aside from the fact they still have a cash shop. So, the subscription there is approx $15 per month + cash shop + daeva pass that resets monthly where not all items are available to your casual Joe. It's just a weak attempt to cash on nostalgia, since NCSOFT understands their current servers have suffered a population loss.

    The files are partially the OG 1.x ones, but modified. Yes, you have the old max lvl 50, Abyss pvp and so on, but that will be ruined over time by the greed from the developers. Just know they could always turn back and re-do the game and fix so many issues where it could be a good game again, they always had this ability, but greed speaks louder.

    I wouldn't mind paying the sub so long the game could actually be considered "good" again, only with the condition that the items in Daeva pass are (all items) non-tradeable or available to all without spending Luna/BCC, while keeping the shop purely for cosmetics. You can't tell me that wouldn't work, because I can mention 2 games which already do that and are very successful in their business.

    I understand, it's a complex subject, here's a better explanation for you https://www.yourdictionary.com/internet-forum#computer

    Lovely. Thank you for pointing out something I already know. Here's something for you too.


    Now, you can continue your bickering with me and defending the chad, but the topic has gone off topic long enough. Do you want to continue?

    Sounds like you don't understand the concept of a public forum. If you're a very sensitive person however I don't blame you for not understanding that people may comment on your posts, and could disagree with you. In this case no one has said anything that's even remotely argumentative.

    That's a bold assumption to think I don't understand how public forums work. Oh sweet summer child. My whole conversation is with DevilNest only. I could've ignored from the start, but then again, where would the fun be in that in someone who only plays Aion and assumes things that aren't true :)

    ok you can call it however you want, but i'm pretty sure not many ppl besides you would think a 10 hours gaming session Per Day would be a ''Casual'' amount of game time.

    what would be Hardcore Mode for you then? like 20 hours? also with all that play time u could easily have made 5 times more +15 stigmas than me lol

    You still don't understand the concept of casual gaming, but I don't blame you. Not like you've tried that, considering the fact you have tried to argue with me about a game you haven't even played. Dropping many hours into the game means nothing when most of the time I'm busy doing other things with the game running in the background.

    Here, something that might be easier for you to understand. https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Casual Gamer

    no i was just trying to understand you... because it sounded very contracdictory to me that some saying, '' i want to play casually'' , ''But also want to be a Top tier player'', to me that is contradictory and applies to any field, like you don't get to Magnus Carlsen level by playing Chess just casually.

    but well its great that FFXIV manages to achieve that, props to them i guess.

    That's what happens when you don't read my comments in its entirety. Next time maybe play the game before commenting? Just a suggestion.

    6 minutes ago, DevilNest-KT said:

    also another thing... you meant weekly? coz 6-10 hours a Day its not casual playtime in my neighborhood lmao.

    It is casual for me, because I work every other week. In one week I spent 2-3 hours a day, in another I pump the hours more. Then again, who are you to criticize how I spend my time with games or whether it is casual/competitive to me? I decide on that factor alone, and you should mind your own business.

  7. Just now, DevilNest-KT said:

    yeah... that was a bold assumption, i never played FFXIV, just talking from my small experience from 5 or 6 MMO i played.

    so question, at FFXIV you play casual idk 10 hours per week, and you go into a PvP vs someone that plays 35 hours or drops 500 dollars per week, are you in equal conditions to them?

    Ever heard of the fact that there's no need to spend cash on PvP in this game? I simply find it weird you're trying to counter my argument over a game you haven't really played. I play the game 6-10 hours a day casually and am able to do everything at my own pace without the stress of gearing or be top in PvP. In fact, there's no gearing in PvP.

    There are some conflicting points here, like i don't think there is in any MMO out there where you can play casually, with low amount of hours and without paying that  also allows you to be at the Top.

    Clearly you haven't played FFXIV, so not sure you can really comment about that. The only money I spend on that game is the sub alone.

    You’re doing something wrong cause I had only 12 accounts on this event, and I spend about 65 seconds on each one collect stormwing zuldra gift and collect daily stormwing tokens and use 30 scrolls, food, drink. Extra 25 seconds if I’m bothered to do enchant daily. How you think this equates to 10 hours blows my mind. I did 9 +15 stigmas and one +12 where my stigmas started from +9. It was about 1320 stigmas, though I could have more if I didn’t enchant to +9 and sell those stigmas.

    I chose to invest at most 14 minutes per day to get about 52 stigmas for most days.

    Keeping the safe spot at +12 is useless if I can’t get another 147 stigmas to enchant one stigma from 9 to +15. 

    Ah yes, while I appreciate your skills at math, the current issue should be seen forward. There's no more Stormwing event. New and/or returning players now will struggle with stigmas and its nonsensical enchantment rates because the only safe spot is +9. Even Korea laughs at that, since they had +12 since the start.

    You were given 7 days extra of stormwing pet for every account what more did you want?

    I completed the Stormwing event, it's what got me to play again in the first place. Even with all those stigmas enchantment stones saved, I only got 2 stigmas to +9. 

    2 hours ago, 5sB1C19-DN said:

    Well simple. The more safe spots help the casual and f2p players. They can still try since the safe spot is +12 but after this event, it will be at +9 and then it's not worth it to try once you have it as +12.

    Do l have to break this whole thread up for you?

    This is correct. This is lack of care to players who are more casual (like me). When I come home from work, I want to relax and have fun. That's what games should do, right? Aion doesn't. You have to sped feverishly 10 hours a day with multiple accounts on in order to stay at the top. That, or you spend money on it, which is what I don't do.

    @Amiteahx-KThas no concept of casual gaming. I should NOT be forced to spend money to even have an attempt at this illusion that you need to be at the top. I say, screw this, it's just not worth my time. I'd rather pay a monthly sub to FFXIV.

    The +12 safe level is only planned to be active during the stigma event.


    Somehow I predicted that. Guess I'll go into hibernation mode and play something else til 8.x comes out or whatever. No point spending my time here if I'm not given the chance to catch up.

    Bad news, I'm afraid. I've been in ESO several times, and I have not yet seen the Legendary Araka gear. I actually spent an hour in the instance today, killing damn near every mob just in case they activated an extra box of loot or something, checking every crevice, etc. I believe the in-game equipment guide is wrong. The only things dropping are Legendary Nighthaze. Sorry, guys, no Malefic skins still. Perhaps Legendary Araka is an EU/KR thing, and it just made it into our equipment guide accidentally.

    We're talking about the Malefic one, yeah? I got 2 items drop from open world, though I'm still uncertain which. I believe it's those ones with huge HP pool that take time to kill, but I can't guarantee it.

    These are supposed to drop in Heiron and Beluslan, in one of the instances, but they definitely drop in Inggison and Gelkmaros open world.

    There are few things that cross the line for me in this game and end up being I wont do that ever again.  Stigmas is one of those things that are just not worth doing anymore for me due to disgusting enchant rates.  Safe spots are a joke because you still destroy just about as many enchants anyway!  Stigmas are probably ranked #2 in total BS of the game.

    Don't be too sad. In the next patch (or I'm guessing 8.0) you need to level your Advanced stigmas to +15 again.

  13. Both are equal in population. Half the time you'll spend your time on the instanced maps (Lakrum, Demaha and Red Katalam) where you'll play with and against people from both servers, and rest in Inggison/Gelkmaros.

     Do something that doesn't impede game progress for once but helps it because if every other region can do it WHY CAN'T (WON'T) YOU?

    Because we're not the other regions. The whole point of this proclaimed "Stigma Event" is to have players blow money at the start as much as possible, ninja nerf the enchant rates to have them spend even more, and then (maybe) give another event where non-spenders can attempt to catch up. I'm using those words loosely, because this always happens when the next patch is approaching (i.e. 7.2 with Sovereign gear dropping in FM/BoS). 

    Had they used this Stigma advancement thing be usable on any stigma regardless of the Stigma level, I'd say that'd be fair for new/returning players. 

  15. A better Stigma event would've been not only increasing the chances, but also prevent the stigmas from -1 when failing to enchant. So far I was liking the patch, but I'm already starting to see many issues that don't necessarily encourage me to play again.

  16. He has valid points, yes, and I'm not trying to discredit or deny his words. My frustration comes back from 6.x where I tried for months to get my sets done, only to have that trashed by the next patch. I was discouraged with 6.5 so much I just didn't bother when 7.0 came out. Only reason I decided to give it another go is because of Stormwing event that allowed me to get a Legendary transformation.

    Now, I'm not expecting everything to be handed out. I want to be a casual player, where I can play whenever I want without the stress to race to the end game to be the best before all my stuff gets trashed again next patch. This is why I like the Renown system, it's fun to go around the maps and do quests.

  17. Well, so far what I've seen is you showing off how much Luna you've gathered with alts and all, proclaiming getting Stigma stones is easy through Luna game. Fair enough.

    In another thread you've shown your advanced stigmas, basically showing off your cash dump so far into the game. Let's not forget about that Marchutan transformation on that quick bar.

    Don't get me wrong, supporting the game you enjoy is fine, my problem is when you're attempting to argue about things you're not even partaking in (i.e. gearing, being an actual returnee/new player). You said having many gear sets gives variety. Oddly strange coming from a Ranger that doesn't need to switch gears unless it's PvP and PvE.

    In conclusion, yes, you are right that perhaps getting those Titan coins and such is easy and whatnot, but calling my argument "blind way of thinking" isn't really a good counter argument at all. If you're unable to have a civilized conversation, it's best indeed that we leave our talk here. My opinion about your "chad" behavior doesn't change, you'll have to work for that.

  18. Hmm, no, the gearing system is still unfriendly. Having a million types of sets doesn't help the fact you can be easily overwhelmed and start getting yourself lost where to go and what to do. While the Item Guide is a fantastic tool to have to let us know what's on the very top of the chain, each patch is all about re-gearing your sets until the cycle has repeated itself.

    But I get it man, you have your dark talon set maxed out and everything, not like you need anything more, just go out and pewpew the noobs. Big talk Chad type of thing, eh?

    I stand by what I said earlier. It's garbage. I almost gave up on the game again because I wasn't even sure where to begin, but I was away only for an entire patch. Doesn't help mobs in Katalam are tough as hell and they take forever to kill, and it'll force me to create a DPS set as a cleric. Oh, and in 7.7 Cleric gets nerfed even more, I wonder if there will be any heal-spec clerics at all? So far each pvp video I've seen, all are dps spec.

    You know what else is garbage? The Transformation system. Still, new and returning players have no chance to get their adequate Legendary xform unless we're blessed with another event like the Stormwing one.
