  1. Weekly Server Maintenance - April 10, 2019

    With all due respect to everyone crying about this event, this is probably the best event we've had since Halloween. Stop being so entitled to everything when these rewards are literally free. All you have to do is do what you do all day long anyways - AFK. You can very reasonably, without much work, get 6-10 ancient transformation contracts from this event, maybe more. I am very critical with what NCWEST has done but this event and the quick survey we received shows that they are at least trying to do better. The rewards from the event are also much better than the last 6 or 7 events. They could have easily not given us another event to run concurrent with the scales event, yet when they try to give players more free stuff, people still complain. The more time you put in, the more you'll get out of it!
  2. Dear Daeva Friends & Foe :)

    Tldr? Edit: nvm you're trying to speculate how 6.7 pve is going to be. You could have advertised that in under five lines and one font.
  3. One of the WORST garbage mmorpgs I've ever played

    OP is not wrong... This game in its current state is one of the worst MMOs for a new player to get into. Steep learning curve? Yes. Worth time investment to learn? Nope.
  4. The current cycle and how it can be improved

    Let me break it down for you. With increased kinah from vendoring, people will be out farming more. Yes, bots will prosper from it, but so will everyone else. With Fighting Spirit Fragments as a pvp daily quest reward, people will want to complete that daily EVERY day. It is such a vital material that people will be out fighting for these mats. With Fighting Spirit Fragments coming as possible rewards in PvP instances, people will have more reason to pay luna to reset it. That's more revenue for the game as well as more rewards for players. You are agreeing with Quality of Life IMPROVEMENTS, yet are in denial that these IMPROVEMENTS will IMPROVE player activity.
  5. The current cycle and how it can be improved

    Without due respect, you are not playing the same game as everyone else.
  6. Great Smuggler Shugo

    It was in the patch notes on Aion Powerbook
  7. Happy Holidays from the Aion team!

    What team? And haven't you guys been on holiday this whole time?
  8. Great Smuggler Shugo

    Seems about 1 in 10 runs. The spawn rate of Smuggler vs Great smuggler SEEMS to be about 3:1 or 4:1. What is confirmed though is that the smuggler has 25% chance for a skill book whereas the Great Smuggler is guaranteed book.
  9. Priorities

    You answered it yourself. They want the game to be challenging and harsh, like life itself. If the NPC stayed for another 3 minutes, someone might have enough to buy another Legendary PvP stone to fail their gear. That is unacceptable. Please be more understanding of NCWest, they are only looking out for us.

    Never spoke to him but had many 1v1s with him on my sorc. Great player and sounds like an even greater person. Sorry for your loss. -Blackie
  11. Weekly Server Maintenance - December 12, 2018

    "There will be a scheduled maintenance Wednesday, December 12, 2018 from 6:00 a.m. CST / 13:00 CET to 9:00 a.m. CST / 15:00 CET. The game servers will be unavailable for approximately 5 hours." So for CST it's 3 hours, time passes faster in CET so it's only 2 hours. If time passes at the same time, it's total 5 hours. That's how time works right?
  12. Video - The Proof that Enchant is only fails

    I think the rates are terrible. But given the rates that we have, if you are stubborn and want to enchant before 6.5, then you have to do it the right way. Using legendary at +10, 11, or 12 is completely wasteful. Trying to +15 from +10 with only ancients is also wasteful. You get 200-240 Ancient PvP stones a week, that's enough to get 3 or 4 pieces to +13 from +10 (you will need a +1 then +2 or +2 then +1, or the very rare +1 +1 +1). At that point, you need 2 successes with legendary (48% each time), OR a lucky +2, which is 10% of the time IF you succeed. If you are doing your PvP instances you should get an extra 4-8 legendary stones on top of the 4-6 you get from sieges. Anyhow, the best way to get PvP gear right now is to just PvE and use Ultimate PvE gear instead of actual PvP gear. Tested the numbers in duels and both offensively and defensively, Ultimate PvE gear with the right tuning is better than +15 Ancient PvP and slightly better than Legendary PvP. I have only so far managed to get 4 pieces of Genesis gear to +15, which of course is horrible. So I decided to just save the stones for 6.5 if we ever make it there.
  13. Video - The Proof that Enchant is only fails

    I'm not saying the enchant rates are good, or even okay. But KNOWING the rate is 28%, why would anyone try to get 5 straight success?? That's what I'm trying to say. Either don't enchant, or enchant the right way.
  14. Video - The Proof that Enchant is only fails

    You tried to +15 with only ancients...
  15. Nothing to do basically.

    Or I can go to work for a few hours and buy more contracts you farm in a month. You're also doing it wrong... You need 8 characters on each server.
