About Calista-DN

  1. and sorcs are also a kiting class that benefit both from cast AND attack speed, have longer CDs than SW, have skills (generally) with longer cast times, and have poor self-heals. Oh yes- and no skills to improve run speed- unlike SW (at least you have that option). I would take your heals if you don't want them lol. Not to mention the run speed .
  2. Silence bury on a SW is not so hard now - I recall that it used to be hard (with the original chain) - but not since it was changed a while ago. I would also agree that SW clearly can't dispel like clerics but having one self-dispel is far more powerful than having no dispels at your disposal, plus self-heals. Again, not as many as heal spec- but that would be even more broken. I would just say that besides CC, without ultimate transform for sorcs and having attack/ casting speed maxed it's even more the setup for PVP that is especially painful against most classes.
  3. While the sorc is casting sleep, let me introduce you to my friend the SM.
  4. You can't dispel? You don't have better shields than a sorc in DPS spec? uh, yes you do. Not to mention way more skills that don't have long cast times nor are they on long CDs. So don't compare SW 9% cast speed vs sorc 20% cast times- there's a good reason for that - you can't compare given the skills and the 2 classes don't have the same mobility, although if both have ultimate transforms then it would help for the sorc. Really, funny how not only NA but EU is full of bad sorcs. No one who has played sorc for a decent period of time remains with the mindset of "face tanking" and no one in this thread has even given that impression- only you. The point of sorcs IS to do massive damage. Get over it. The point is they are last in the current meta which has multiple classes rapidly doing damage with excellent defenses of varying types and good mobility. The one advantage of playing a sorc is that it makes playing various other classes so much easier Not necessarily. Do you even know which build gives instant sleep? and it isn't always useful. Yes a sorc has a chance to kill a SW but it's by no means a given, a SW has plenty of tools to do the job as well.
  5. [Aion 7.5] GemStone Skills

    Agreed, repulsion only works to buy time in a group (sometimes) talking about +15 repulsion in Korea is not realistic for NA. How many sorcs are running with that? However- even more important - at this point in the game why don't sorcs have anything to block magical damage- as elemental ward is meh - and does anyone use even use COW? For physical damage wintry is waaaay behind the times, maybe the improved is worth it but playing a class that considers freezing someone in place or preventing them from using any skills as both of their ultimate shields is really trolling. Cheer up guys. In 7.7 almost every class gets additional AOE skills. That will be even better for us, right? I mean it it isn't as though sleep breaks on damage right? The future doesn't look too bright yet.
  6. Game Teams Request - Feedback

    I would generally agree with the first post and add a fourth point so as @Aly-DN said 1- hackers 2- P2W 3- RNG and I would add 4- poor class balance 5- decisions made without consulting the community (e.g. recent change to siege schedule) 6- lack of transparency (e.g. core game mechanics, length of time required for some updates) So to add some perspective, I would add that 1, 3 and (to some extent) 4 have been around since open beta - if anyone here played a chanter especially when the game first released the would likely agree that chanters deserved some love. However, since Aion went F2P (hah) and especially since the last couple of patches, I do feel all the above has gotten much worse. Many elements of what makes Aion an "MMO" have been stripped out of the game, probably since the original dev team is long gone and the existing team is out of touch with the community. This isn't a mobile game. We had a: a complex economy, with player trading crafting and other elements that were stripped away a functional warehouse system a way to exchange kinah a help out friends Now . Broker fees are through the roof. Players resort to hacks (BOT, BID) for kinah Regarding the RNG element- as previously pointed out, there is so much to enchant or create now (runes, gemstones, etc) now. This further perpetuates the gear imbalance which can often be the deciding factor in PVP - and a certain number of players will just decide to start hacking- if they don't quit. After a time, even the whales won't save the game. Finally - regarding 5 and 6, please note that this is for the overall communications (producer, CM) - I realize you're new @Kibbelz
  7. Siege Schedule Poll

    I appreciate your posting the poll. Bonus if you could also give a estimate of how long it would take to to: (1) revert (rollback) the change - so that we can go back to the current time (2) implement the time as per the community I would hope that we could get (1) before you get the results of the survey (maybe in hot fix) Thanks again, it is really appreciated that you listened when mentioned the survey, this was helpful in the past (even if we didn't always get exactly what we wanted)
  8. Weekly Server Maintenance - July 1, 2020

    I regularly help recruit for sieges, so I note how many drop off and how many tell me that they have problems due to the current time ALREADY being late. Now you want to make it even later???? Personally, I'm located on East coast NA, and I work, so siege times are difficult as it is. This is going to make it EXTREMELY hard to attend. New players now don't see what we used to have: - East and West coast servers - GONE - support for timezone changes (Daylight Savings)- GONE - surveys for siege time changes for our region- GONE Now we don't even get a basic justification. Just an announcement that is basically " it's changing- take it or leave it" and which many people can miss. Really? Has it gotten THAT bad at your office, so that you cannot communicate with your community in a more positive way?
  9. It could make sense if you would actually provide a link to where you found that information. Not that we could be sure that we would get that fix - although that would be logical- however not necessarily so given that it would have to be compatible with our region.
  10. 6 hours AFK for a 7-day enchant

    @Basia-DNAs much as I detest fear .... lmao... this is one of the best posts I’ve seen in a long time. Can definitely relate to this.
  11. What a Shame

    OK, one of these is a sorc vs sorc, so I don't understand the point in this thread since it's really discussing sorc as being viable in comparison to other classes - however what specifically did you want to point out in the second one with the sorc vs the sin? In addition these are 7.2 - I don't know all of the skill changes that we should get in 7.2, just no magic defense increase on CC for sorcs. It would be especially helpful if anyone knows what the skill changes are (or I guess it's back to Powerbook).....
  12. Access Restriction Notice?

    Can we please get this fixed. Seriously - do you want to have your support desk flooded with calls over this? I don't think so, and it could easily happen if people panic over this. So far it took multiple attempts - not only logging into the web page first , but also switching to another character before selecting the one I wanted. In all it took me THREE tries to login to the character I wanted.
  13. Aethertech Nerf - Not announced?

    The short answer to your question is "yes" other classes at least one other class had a nerf to PVE damage. However in the case of ATs it could be argued that it wasn't a surprise that it would be toned down.
  14. Gameplay suggestions

    There are games that have successfully legitimized bots. There's at least one MMO that had an excellent crafting system - it was similar to our aether forging, but used a type of bot. Once you had the mats, you could start automated tasks at any time., only limited by the crafts that you knew and the number of your crafting assistants. You could be doing whatever you wanted in the meantime. You could even log out. Once your crafting was done, you got a notification for each completed task. It really made crafting a lot easier.
  15. Aion: Mark of the Vandal update livestream

    Some nerves are normal, no matter how often you present. If you don't livestream often that's understandable too. However, it takes nerves of steel to fake it when you live demo a product when you really don't know it, trust me . I've had to do it and I don't recommend it. Far better to bring in someone else to demo for you if you are not that familiar with your product, or have them record a test session and play back part of it during the live stream., and speak over it That would be fine too. At least we would see mobs and a real boss in action, or some PVP.
