  1. the hairpins quest for the hat is nice. Also for the nostalgia and helping out friends. I am full SR gear and i still run it occassionally to help out friends. It's a question for NCwest as they stuffed up that one. Give it enough attention and it might warrant some action. Luckily, its not game changing enough for the players to care. AP trading and hackers are the real issues to deal with.
  2. They do leave though, maybe not this week, but the week or month after. Look at how Aion Retail has deteriorated. It's been leaking players readily since its glory days of 2009-2014. They're giving NCwest the opportunities to address the issues before the game deteriorates like Aion Retail. Yeah carrying out the AP traders banwave before the patch 1.5 release is a great move as it gives players a better outlook on the future. The game might still die, but at least we know NCwest have tried.
  3. Looks like this ban wave has been well executed with not many flocking to the forums protesting their innocence. On the balance of probabilities, innocent players haven't been implicated in this. Some offending players may have fallen through the gap, but that's acceptable in these circumstances. Seems like NCwest have learnt from the SR debacle. This has been a momentous occasion for the game. I am pleasantly suprised, so well done and keep it up! This is a big step into regaining the trust of the playerbase.
  4. The cynic in me believes that they will announce that they've "conducted the investigation" and banned the guilty players, but no one is actually banned. Then they will drop the 1.5 update hoping to appease the playerbase and divert or deflect attention away from the issues at hand,just to live another day and collect their next pay cheques.
  5. Hoping the official update amounts to something meaningful. Hopefully not a generic update such as "we're still thoroughly investigating the evidence and hope to provide an update soon".
  6. I can understand why players are hesistant to grp with glads for barkarma. Some glads are just terrible. They dont use scrolls/food/consumables, do terrible dps and they somehow think getting a spear will suddenly change their skill level, only to sell their accounts after realising that they're bad. When the spear is going for half a billion, you would be a fool to invite a badiator, when you can make some nice kinah for your group. Only the good glads deserve it.
  7. Aion went f2p not too long after 2009. The Ap trading occured during all the sieges of the f2p era. You soon know the same players conducting the trades and just follow them around to leech.
  8. This AP trading thing has been going on for 12 years. NCwest won't be able to do a thing unless its blatantly obvious. What you do is mark the players known to AP trade and follow them around to leech their kills.
  9. You must be a young daeva. Welcome to the NCfail experience! The company are sly shugos, nyerk nyerk.
  10. In conclusion, the skill ceiling required to master a sorc is much higher than other classes. Most players would prefer instant gratification than persevering with a class that requires fast reflexes, reaction and skill. Sm, on the other hand is a broken af class designed to cater for the mentally disadvantaged people. Fact is no one likes SMs.
  11. I feel that sorc is fine in pvp in the hands of pro players only. By nature, sorcs are like magicians as they require fast reactions to execute the lock down combos. There isn't much margin for error hence why the skill ceiling is higher. Skilled sorc pvp is arguably the most enjoying class to watch as it very fast paced with high risk rewarding play, and creativity with unpredictable combos. In group pvp, a sorcs playstyle is focused on survivability and landing sleeps on key targets rather than full dpsing so it gives the impression that sorcs are 'weak'. Overall, sorcs have
  12. Did your group have an AT? if the entry gate at the start is blown up by AT'S then the prisoners will bug.
  13. Although flame fusion is a fundamental skill of sorcs, id say 50% of sorcs dont bother using it at all. Same with not using flame cage, using big casting nukes only with cast reduction buffs up, not weaving, etc. Sorc is the most overplayed dps class which also attracts alot of noobs also.
  14. Its hard to tell whether high dps is due to player skill or class anymore. Supposedly this patch buffed physical dpsers, but i see some sorcs/sm outdps everyone, other times i see glads/sin outdps everyone. I still feel that many players don't dps anywhere near their gear potential though, and a lack of class awareness/available guides is to blame.
  15. My sorc is not even full legendary (13 legendary/2ancient/1 ulti bandana) but can do a respectable 35k dps in Pf with this update. Sure, the dps isnt enough to carry a group, but if every dps can pull 30-35k dps in partial legendary gear then it shouldn't be a problem. PVE has always been like this. There are always geared baddies and then there's players who are able to extract as much potential from their given gears. One solution is running a meter and blacklisting geared baddies and try running with players that is known or have potential. Unfortunately, since PF/IDD is buff
