  1. That's actually NOT how a stimulus check works though. The point of a stimulus check is to get needed money in the hands of the vast majority of the working class as they will be most likely to immediately spend it (or spend it within a year) buying goods and services instead of putting it in savings, thus "stimulating" your economy. The ones living check to check in the working class will spend it on immediate needs such goods, services, bills while those in the working class that don't need it as much will put it toward wants like a down payment, an upgrade, a hobby, or also an immediate ne
  2. The sweet spot for Online games it seems if ping varies too great from really low to really high for the average player, is around 50ms-80ms. Most netcode operate off those specs, or at least from what I read for FPS like CoD. MMOs it's not as cruical if they have global CDs between skills but Aion is a game that doesn't really have a global CD at all. In my case, when the servers were in Dallas where I live, I was getting 9-12ms pings but had issues with those that had 50+ ping and higher because on my client they would be within 25m for me to cast a skill on but I wasn't able to cast a skill
  3. Doesn't change the fact that if they bounce ANY server, they should bounce the other as well. People on KT know prior to this AWS server move that they could expect a reset by Sunday/Monday so we'd get our instances done prior to. Since there is a limit on how many times one can do an instance, and a server bounce resets that, the side that gets reset still stands to benefit more. Unless our server is down for a couple days and we can't play then i'd see not resetting the opposite server.
  4. I went from 9-12ms pings with the occasional 6ms to about 37-44ms. I live in Dallas where the servers use to be housed and on 1Gb upload/download fiber connection. Honestly, I'm okay with the higher ping and looking forward to see if my issues I had before with having too low a ping will still crop up. Issues I had before were that players were in range of me but I wasn't able to cast skills on them until like 1-2s later or until their client updated the servers on their position to me, it sucked. Fear would make people ghost around/rubberband like crazy and fly straight forward even off
  5. They could just be lagging extremely bad. On your client the player could be up in the air while on their client they are lagging extremely bad. The best way to figure out if they are using some kind of anti-gravity hack, is to get close enough to hit them with a skill. If you are within range to hit them with a skill and the skill hits no problem, they are hacking. If the game gives you a message saying the target is too far away, they are lagging extremely bad. Sometimes you can just sit there and watch them and if they are running slow and ghost back and do it again over and over, the
  6. Easy, because for every purchase of the 1600 NCoin code ($20), NCSoft gives you 1 BCM Legendary Enchantment Stone selection box. In my case, from Aug of last year til about March of this year, I exclusively bought the $20 1600 NCoin codes and converted in-game for anything I wanted to purchase off the BCM. Put it this way, when the Lunar/Solar event came out, I sent in a ticket with my $20 NCoin purchase history and received well over 333 BCM Legendary Enchantment Stone selection boxes (a little over $6k USD worth) in which I chose the PVP Legendary stones. Using those stones is how I got my L
  7. For some people it will be an issue if they don't have Local Admin rights to the Aion folder- you can be a local admin on your PC and STILL not have write access to the Program Files\NCSoft\Aion folder. In that case, if you aren't comfortable with granting yourself admin rights, you can take the config file and copy it to your desktop and then you should be able to fully edit it and put it in read-only mode and then rename the original in the Aion folder and paste the new one from your desktop back in. Also, if you adjusted those settings and the game still gives the loading bar, take t
  8. What are you on? Paying per hour? First off, as I said, that would never fly for an MMO released in the US, it NEVER has. Asians countries allowed their gamers to be ripped off like that, but that would NEVER fly in the US. Gacha Systems may be allowed now, but even those and loot box style (like the Aion Transformation system) predatory monetizing schemes have their days numbered. Just look at EA in the Netherlands, there are more talks about it worldwide and even here the issue is being brought up by a Senator in California I think. Honestly, at some point mobile games will have a reckoning
  9. So from what I gather the main points of the classic server are the following: v1.2 Content with some v1.9 combat mechanics added in for the sake of balance and the v2.7 client since it had the CryEngine 2.0 engine. v1.2 = Lev 50 cap, no Dark Poeta and Dredgion or lev 50 Daevian quests. First update is v1.5 that will have those in it later. Leveling will be significantly faster with a permanent boost of 1.0-1.5 times the normal exp. Item trading is back, you have to purchase or acquire skill books (looking at you SM pet skills) and item drop rates are increased to reduce the time to
  10. This game is marketed as a Mass PvPvE game. As an SM I get jumped, ambushed, hunted specifically, location called out in opposite faction LFG, near guaranteed marked #1 in all scenarios of grp play and solo play and as a result I die ALOT. This is whether I'm out solo or in a duo (me and that vandal that killed you duo often and are buds) or grp pvp. Get over it. I've racked up more deaths than you if ONLY because who I am and the class I play. With my class, playstyle, and gear I expect it. This is not a SOLO friendly game, make some consistent friends and do stuff together often and gear up,
  11. That's not all, I know why that particular Vandal hit you for that much non-crit lol. I've already stated the reason before previously and he is one of the very few ones that were lucky enough to randomly unlock the skill and invest in maxing it out.
  12. The Vandal class is still new so they are still in the process of tweaking it to make sure it remains viable to attract new and old players to invest in gearing it up, that's just from a business perspective, it will be a bit and they will tone it down. Your +15 Adv Glacial Shard can hit fools for more than that-that are geared too. I've seen 68k and 72k hits from it on fully geared glads and without a 3s charge time and 15m range like this Vandal has to with a Lev 3 Color Monster. Your fight lasted 4s not 1s, your screenshot is misleading.
  13. Overgear who? Those handful of sorcs I've mentioned in other threads are in reference to ONLY other max and similarly geared people. Under geared people aren't even in the conversation as they are irrelevant from a balancing perspective. The game isn't balanced against under geared people, it's balanced against max geared, ulti xform, +15 adv skills, etc. Yes, some classes are super powerful atm against other classes without having to be as geared, some of that is to make it more appealing for others to play that class or until enough people playing them displaying how overly strong the class
  14. Btw, here is a recent vid with one of KR Aion's most watched sorcs Ckdrmsdl dueling a ranger (think Dykim is there as well spectating, sounds just like his ass in their discord) after the recent balance lab patch. This vid is just preliminary and informational, I'm not making any judgement yet one way or the other on how it affects your class as people are still adjusting to the changes there, but I think it is important because ranger is an insanely good counter class to casters:
  15. Not necessarily. Things change over time with each new Balance Lab patch. They try to balance and tune classes and test, their tests are done with max geared/skills/collection/cubics toons. A max geared and well played sorc is fine "enough" for 6.x - 7.5 in their eyes. Keep in mind, It's only in the later half of 7.7 they feel that all the tweaks to other classes are becoming an issue for your class (mine as well to an extent, the super high average run speed being the norm is the biggest reason I hate using fear because the speed reduction was based off of run speed scroll sub 6.0 era speeds,
  16. Asmos got a lot of nerve. You guys were getting plenty before you guys had implosions on KT and DN. When Demaha first came back in 6.x the KT Elyos top legions banned together and farmed the 4 WB everyday for extendibles. We prob got over 150 kills easy and Asmos on KT maybe got 10. Then greed got the better of us and we disbanded our top legion and the Asmos under Fencer reigned supreme for a good bit of time. Katalam came out and KT asmos were still doing good until Fencer had his meltdown and the KT asmos lost their way. 7.0+ came out and KT/DN Elyos formed an alliance and KT/DN Asmos forme
  17. Lots of great interesting changes actually. SM fear movement speed reduction now increased, thank god! Here is the official Balance Lab update from KR, you'll need to use a translator: https://aion.plaync.com/board/balancelab/view?articleId=458&viewMode=card&size=20
  18. Oh yeah, ultimate xform is a must (Kaisinel preferrably), but Ereshkigal can put you at 1% short of cast speed and atk speed cap and extra pvp atk so it's a good one as well.
  19. Max geard sorc (+15 stigmas and daevians) with the vast majority of the offensive collections and cubics completed can 2-4 shot just about any class, templars included. If they have they have proper MagAcc then even MR isn't an issue. Some classes they would have to get the drop on first like ranger. The issue in NA Aion is that there aren't really that many stellar sorcs and practically ALL of the them are Elyos and play on KT. I haven't ran into an asmo sorc on any NA server that would breed any kind of trepidation that a few Elyos ones on KT inspire. So long story short, Sorc is godly
  20. Same. Also, the other selectable are the 10 types and Apotles in that same one as the Hanboks. Can get other collections done. Can finally get my damn Irnin for my magic attack collection. The 4 Hankboks Collection is as follows: Collection name: Local Products Are the Best Stat bonues: Physical: Physical Crit Damage +20; Magical: Magic Crit Damage +20 Skill Effect: Instant Return - Effect: Teleports to Bind Point - Cast Time: 0.5 seconds - Recharge: 1 hour Not a bad skill to dip out of a bad situation like a zerg.
  21. My personal opinion, in all honesty, the one mechanic that completely changed the dynamic of this game making melee practically HAVE to have an extendable and to the detriment of casting classes is the fact that they allow everyone to get such extremely high and maxed out runspeeds permanently. That one change actually screwed up this game in PVP and is the single reason why they have such issues balancing classes. When this game first came out, run speed was probably the single most important mechanic to PvP. Your sprint skills and movement restriction/movement freedom skills were imperative
  22. I disagree, at least in regards to casters for the most part. They have to stop and cast skills that aren't insta cast, so they are subject to self-imposed roots which makes chasing and being chased an issue, and on average get off far fewer skills than any melee class as a result of cast times and not necessarily hitting harder with less attacks landing except for Sorcs. Casters also have instant cast skills that still root us in place for some odd reason. Without an ultimate xform, casters only get half of their potential realized where as just with atk speed the melee classes can reach thei
  23. We just need this event from NA KR. The original Yorgo's Weapon event event started in July 2020 that gave the new Extendables, now the updated version of this event from I think this past September also provided a benefit for getting an extendable as a ranged class (Bow, Spellbook/Orb, Aether Pistol/Canon/Key, Instrument). The new updated versions of extendable weapons don't change for Melee classes as it already provides a short-ranged attack distance boost, and for ranged classes we get a reinforcement zone type buff (which now there is a benefit and incentive for ranged classes to get Exte
  24. Hence why I posted the whole quote from Kibbelz. It is implying that the consumption of 12 Legendary Xforms using the combine feature to get 1 ultimate xform selection box is a new feature (specific to NA even because other regions have a different stipulation like Korea is 24 Legendary consumptions but they get Legendary contracts much much easier than us) that will apply during Legendary Transformation promotional event IN ADDITION to whatever bonus transformations the present event offers. This event is promoting Legendary Transformations, so the assumption is that this "new feature" should
  25. *sigh* Dude just stop. Your issue is that this promotion has an "event" tied to it.. The original quote from Kibbelz stated ANY Promotional EVENT. He also stated that the 12 legendary transformation consumptions was a "new feature" (this was not applied to other regions and is unique to NA as far as I know, other regions have different stipulations) that would apply "IN ADDITION TO" the stated event's bonuses. What are you even arguing? My assumptions are around requesting clarity that the previously stated rules still apply here. My first inclination is that yes it does and that it should, th
