  1. IMO NCsoft is not actually that creative in getting the average player to open their wallet because they have a few players who spend tons on garbage.  For instance the new pack for 2k coins?  If they had made it juicy with decent stuff people would buy it (can't cost them much if anything currently to make this pack).  So far I have heard not many that will purchase it.  They could probably sell it for 500 coins and make a ton because so many people would buy it.  They need someone a little smarter in marketing the stuff and pricing the stuff.

    I remember hearing that Kim Kardashian had a game where people made characters and would buy stuff for them with micro transactions (like $1, 2 $5).  That game made hundreds of millions of dollars off of micro transactions.  I think Aion could do the same.  I sure would spend more if the stuff was decent and inexpensive.  I bet they would make more than they do......I think :)  I could be wrong.

  2. I noticed on one of these links that the GOK mob can drop either ancient or legendary but many have been saying GOK can only drop the ancient box and same skill comes from it every time.  Has this changed for 6.5 or can you get ancient and legendary from GOK box?

    I noticed also you will be able to craft the box and purchase it with genesis crystals? Am I right on that one?  That would be nice as well.  I'm having a hard time getting a legendary box.

  3. Hey,

    We were having this discussion over chanter chat yesterday and I was getting information to just make a DPS set and socket all crit.  The best defense is a good offense.  Is this what most chanters are doing these days?  I am coming up on having a full ancient set all pieces with weapons (staff/shield/mace) and just wondered what to socket? (healing boost or crit?).  I am working on enchanting it up as well with some success to at least +7 for now until I get more stones.

    As far as stigmas go for support as well.  I am using all the ones to get word of instigation because I like it for groups as well as recovery spell and healing burst.  It is hard to kill in this setup.  I like the dps setup but then I lose WOI.

    Any advice?


  4. Hi Lady,

    I had this problem for a little while and basically it comes down to your attack power vs the mobs defense.  If your attack power is below the mob defense you will do base damage (very little).  I am a chanter and as you were saying it would take forever to kill something.  If you kill the mobs near the lakrum base even with the low gear and level 80 you should kill those pretty quickly if you wear all the gear at once with weapon.  

    Currently I need 2 pieces to finish my pvp ancient set and it is starting to get better.  I have 10,500 attack with a combined weapon and am starting to hit for 10-15k per hit on some skills.  I see rangers doing lots of damage so just keep at it.  I don't play a ton maybe 1 1/2 hours a day and in a few weeks you can have the whole ancient set.  Rangers have some skills that are OP at lower attack power because they boost it by 30%? i think.

    I find I do more damage in my pvp gear because its better than my pve gear currently (similar attack power even with the pve bonus)

    Don't even think about the people who got gear in the exchange.  I saw someone in full red armor +10 and +15 purple accessories and +10 weapon and shield.  That is like 2 years from now for me lol.  Just have fun questing, grouping, zoning and do what you can each time it resets each week.

  5. I have played since day 1 and many of the complaints are valid. 

    I get the whole if I play lots of hours I should have better gear etc.  For sure you do. 

    Honestly because I didn't enchant my 75 AP gear up to 20 now I actually have something to do in the new patch.  I saw one player (a vet) who was always geared to the teeth in game the other day and they were in all red +10 gear with +15 purple accessories, red wings, red bracelet and red plume all +10.  Monstrous stats!  They must find the new patch boring as hell because barely any of the content is a challenge and in pvp they can 1v10 easy in that gear.  It is a shame they gave out such high level gear.  Personally I believe those geared players from the past would have still played if they were given purple gear set level 0-5? Probably. 

    People want a challenge....feel like you earned it (other than I enchanted my other gear up so I deserve it).  There isn't enough content to warrant wearing red gear.  I find there are not enough yellow/purple/red pvp stones in the game currently even if people wanted to enchant their gear up they can't.  If the 1 time quest was a weekly it would probably work.  As a casual player (1hr a day) it will be quite difficult to ever get purple/red gear (honestly like 1-2 years) when people are already in that gear (unless you pay BCM/events etc). 

    From day 1 of the new patch there will never be a day regardless of skill that I will be able to take those players because of the monstrous gear gap.  Yes it existed in the past with full fenris, 50 elite etc but we could still kill those players with a few other players.  Good luck killing someone in full +15 purple with red armor +10 (not gonna happen even with a huge bunch of players in yellow/some purple).

    With all that said I still login and play my characters and try and get my yellow set enchanted up.  I still have fun zoning with other characters and working towards getting my devanion skills (don't have any yet - the rng gods in COE have not been kind so far).  Aion has always been a grindy game.  I wish it had a little more content at end game and was a little easier for returning/new players (not leveling per say just competing in general)

  6. Thanks MooMoo,

    So I should get a pvp staff fused with another pvp staff with genesis crystals and use the boots/gloves as well and the weapon to get a high enough physical damage to overcome the other players physical defence correct?  The use of old staff 19% and gloves 8% attack speed are not really doing me any good if I can't overcome the physical defence.  Boots maybe just for running at 22% is helpful.

  7. I think I understand how damage is calculated.

    I am working on getting my pvp set above the Lakrum set.

    I am still using my +15 staff from 5.8 because of the 19% attack speed and my gloves and my boots for the run speed 22%.  The rest is a mix of pvp lakrum and genesis crystals pvp gear.  My question is am I better off using all genesis pvp armor/weapon/accessories and let the attack speed/run speed go so I can actually damage something?

    Anyone done testing....?

    I watched a video on the way damage is calculated and basically if my physical attack is lower than my opponents physical defense I will do base damage?  I see some people (can't tell their gear) 1-3 shot mobs that take as a chanter a little while to beat down.  

    Any thoughts?

  8. Is this scroll available in the kinah shop?  On EU I remember buying from the shop for 34k kinah.

    I don't remember seeing it but it may be there.  I hope it is there.

    I am already finding making kinah hard.  I think I started this patch which 30mil kinah and 11 ingots.  I bought a contract and got a reasonable one.  After that i barely have any cash left.....

    It seems quite hard for the newish/casual player to compete at all.  Only time I guess and keep at it I guess.

  9. Why is the exchange rate so high?

    For example if I have +15 Prime Archon Royal Captain set I get nothing for it.....Why does it have to be +20 to get anything.  +15 was hard enough.

    I have played on EU server and I can see what will happen the way NA is rolling this out.  The most geared players currently will be the most geared players once it comes out.  The problem with this is the difference between the gear you get from quests/gold gear pvp you get from genesis crystals and the legendary/ultimate gear is like night and day.  Someone in +15 blue gear or god forbid red gear can run into a group of 10 players with the new gear and take them all out.

    Also some players will have still hundreds of millions vs some with nothing.  The ones with nothing will have no transformations and will be running out of the basic 30% run speed ones as they are farming.  The others will have a bunch of transformations + the blue gear +15.  They will be ahead of the curve for a long long time.  By the time the ones who have nothing have blue gear they will be in red gear.  It probably won't ever even out (all along the players with the gear as always will think wow I'm so good ;P)

    Just be prepared to be griefed all day by the players with the gear they got through conversion.

    Guess we will have to see what happens.....

  10. Hey!

    Don't worry assassins you can still be good (depending on how deep your wallet is) in 6.0!

    This is nuts!  I'm not sure if these guys are undergeared or what but the sin sure has the gear (and the ping)....so many attacks!


  11. Hi,

    The cost to Augment is way to high and or gets burned down to quickly.  I just augmented my gear and after one day playing the 2nd level is 1/4 done.  I can't imagine the players who actually play a lot. That means my augment 2nd level will be gone in 4 days.  Augments are not that easy to come buy.  You can buy them for about 200million, trade in blood medals and marks (500 blood medals) or buy on BCM (real cash).

    My suggestion is put the pvp stats on the first level instead of the second level so at least you can get the full value out of the augments.

    If I let my augments go to the first level I lose something like 10% pvp defense.



  12. I get error and then Microsoft gives me these files:

    Files that might give information about the problem?  I don't know what that means.
