  1. Aetherforging masterwork chance?

    Having made close to 3000 items now overall, I can say it is about 20% proc chance. The proc chance seems similar regardless of ancient/legendary/ultimate. I've only recently got an estate (EK server), so I can't confirm any changes due to that.

    I would love to watch a stream of your dps in PF; preferably with you showing your gear at the beginning - as with what you have in the screenshot earlier that was seen during siege would absolutely not be able to pull 40k+ dps IMO. If you could stream next time you do a run from your PoV, and toss me a vod link, it would be appreciated. Thanks! To clear the air, I have not accused any player directly of cheating, and have reiterated that multiple times, and that was not the point of this thread. The point of this thread remains that NC has failed to reassure the Asmo community of the legitimacy of the game at this point in time. I have people come to me daily speaking of their distrust of things, how every time someone gets a +15 anomos weapon, they immediately feel like NC had something to do with it. Most of the time, there are legitimate and viable reasons; but the point of this thread was to bring up some of the more solid questions people have posed, and point out the fact that as a whole, very few people from Asmo trust NC to be fair while they have employees playing on Elyos. I'll get a dps meter next time I am in PF - our core group usually plays in evenings, and as we are only very close to clearing, we pretty much need the entire top-end group to do so. I'll get one next time I'm in there though (though it will likely be on my SM not my sorc, as we are running SM for the buffs/debuffs)

    11k accuracy is almost reasonable. You would still get a few resist/misses, but not a ton, probably around 5-8% roughly. As a sorc, it wouldn't hurt you that bad compared to other classes that need chains much more. Our group requires 11k accuracy and 14k combined attack + pve attack to walk in the door with our group - and even with these stats, damage is still just a bit short of beating in time.

    I brought these issues up to an NC employee acting formally as a representative of NC at the time, in private. I was informed in that discussion that investigations into potential GM abuse and similar issues would require more evidence. Since then, more was gathered by a multitude of players, and they passed it to me to make a forum post on behalf of everyone that was involved. In the past, GM's were returning broken stigma's to players that had spent a large amount of money, have banned players that were against themselves or their friends in arena, among other accusations and proof given in the past. I'm not saying it is happening this time, I am saying its enough that it should be looked at VERY carefully. It has also come to my attention that Cyan has left the Zephyr Legion due to the issues with the compensation gear and the way people could view it - which is both the right call to make, and unfortunate to have happen. Its clear that Cyan recognizes the issue with the optics surrounding this situation.

    If you are using a +15 CoE tome over a +11 Firebrand, you are probably taking a minor dps loss even in PvE, depending on overall stats. In 6.2, PvE attack and PvP attack and Defense formula's were changed heavily. You may want to try it out a bit on dummies (or look up the formulas and plug in the numbers). Generally its more viable to use the higher grade item even if its not matched to PvP/PvE, though a +15 weapon MIGHT beat out the stats from a +11 of a grade up, simply because weapons scale very well in type-based attack at high plusses. I don't know the numbers off the top of my head, but you should probably look up the new formulas and some more information before touting your knowledge. Edit: after looking at both more in depth, its very likely the Legendary Firebrand is actually more dps, especially if you are reliably hitting high cast speeds with a good transform (or capping with cd's). The 4% cast speed difference might make up for the roughly 250 attack difference, and the 400 accuracy difference. Hard to say in this specific instance, but I would definitely recommend testing both ways. Edit 2: Its also very very likely you should be using your ultimate jewelry over those legendary accessories - again, it depends on the stats, but you likely are losing a tiny bit of damage on those as well. As a general rule of thumb, higher grade items simply beat lower grade in 6.2, regardless if they are pvp or pve.

    There have been cases of GM's doing this in the past on other servers. There have been cases on EK of players receiving compensation gear that should not exist. Other EK players on the Elyos side have accused that people are getting free gear. Unfortunately, there's enough here to begin building a bit of a pattern that is worth investigating.
  7. The Elephant in the EK Room

    my Sorc in PF usually pulled 40 or so in full purples. Also, you have a purple weapon, and 6 pieces of red gear. Wonderful CoE +15!
  8. The Elephant in the EK Room

    Exceed pulling that DPS on frigida is immediately questionable if the gear as linked earlier is true. I would absolutely question that. I don't doubt your damage as a sorc in those shots, as mine can pull reasonably close with slightly less gear - seems reasonable. The issue is with a specific small set of players who seem to do damage WELL over the gear that they have. Seeing as you are part of Zephyr's core, could you confirm that the gear linked earlier in this thread is the same gear they use normally?
  9. The Elephant in the EK Room

    That actually is a very key point - cash shop and other progression is almost necessary because of the huge RNG gating the "F2P" way to gear. That said, crafting gear is absolutely the best way to gear as a F2P player right now.
  10. The Elephant in the EK Room

    I agree, I don't think its likely this will change, and its extremely hard to police any form of RMT done this way (compared to just friends helping others). Not really the point of this post though, but glad these issues were pointed out anyways!
  11. The Elephant in the EK Room

    Asmo is absolutely doing it. I don't know how many/who - but Monarch Gemstones are on the broker, and those come from IDD. Nobody on Asmo side has cleared IDD as a non-cross group.
  12. The Elephant in the EK Room

    The issue with cross server runs (as that was in response to), is that on other servers, players with pre-existing compensation gear, in an economy where +10 stigmas, omega stone exchange, and many other factors exist, can then use those to help gear people on a server where by design they cannot exist.
  13. The Elephant in the EK Room

    Don't get me wrong, you and Dog both pulled some absolutely amazing stunts, and I could tell you played well. That said, surviving in the middle of Ancient Temple against 10+ guards and 10+ players on you in week 2 of the server is definitely a bit strange - maybe there is something else going on, not sure. TBH, I havn't fought you enough outside of sieges with buffs to really have a feel for anything personally, just one of the names that came up regularly in discussion (same as a few others, but for those, their gear matches what people say usually).
  14. The Elephant in the EK Room

    It depends on your perspective if they are a problem or not. The core issue is that they have allowed players to utilize entire groups with compensation gear gained on other servers to push forward players on EK's new server at a faster pace than would be available otherwise. For some, this is a problem as it has damaged the normal pacing of gear.
  15. The Elephant in the EK Room

    Cross server runs are absolutely happening, whether they are simply friends in a legion or paid, who knows. They have happened on both sides of the server, and are definitely a problem. PF, there really aren't strats other than to stack up and dps, with a focus on killing the wizard and then cleaving the soldiers while focusing the boss. There are various AoE damage abilities the boss does, but all of them are basically "stack and heal". There is also a portal mechanic that isn't really viable to use.
