    Before 7.0 red and purple stones barely ever failed

    Damn you're lucky.

    Kind of annoying that it happens and the socketing of red or purple doesn't seem to be any better than any other stone in my opinion.

    100% agree. It feels so much worse to watch an ultimate stone fail compared to an ancient stone. :(


  2. Chanter is a very versatile class and, as such, there are many ways to play it. The info I will give you below is just my opinion. It's not necessarily what's right for you or another chanter! Hopefully some other chanters will also give you their own advice and you can develop your own play style. :)

    - Desired stats for pve ;

    I'm just running FM, 'cause i don't want to mess up any run.

    My pve dps and healing sets are pictured below. Stats are buffed with Instigation and food/xform, but no 4k dp buff or Blessing of Wind on the dps set and no heal boost buffs on the support set. The dps set is endgame gear as it is all red and 3 of the pieces are the new red gear; the heal boost set is mid-level gear. I mention that because if you are just focusing on FM right now, you won't have this gear yet, and that's okay! Just work on getting your purple pieces. Once you are mostly purple with just 2-3 golds, you can start running PF to try to get some red pieces. Once you have your red pieces from PF, you can start to do Stellin Lab easy mode to get the other red pieces. ** Note, if you have geared friends to carry you, you can do that stuff sooner. *** Second note, I only talked about pve gear since you were talking about pve, not pvp.

    - Stigmas for pve; 

    What is the fast / best way to enchant 'em?

    I'm using Mountain Crush, Blessing of Stone, Healing Burst, Splash Swing / Word of Inspiration,  Annihilation in most of the situation.

    Use duplicate stigmas to enchant to +4. From that point on, I recommend using the Stigma Enchantment Stones so that you don't break your stigma back to +0. I would recommend you take a closer look at Leaping Flash. It didn't use to be super useful because it was a charge skill. Now, it is almost insta-cast and it has a shorter cd. It's a guaranteed knockdown that hits a decent amount of damage, and it is now viable in pvp too since it's a very fast cast. I also highly recommend you take another look at Blessing of Wind. It is an extremely op skill that will boost your dps a lot.

    Here are the stigmas I use:

    I use this set-up any time I am in a group. The vision, Word of Instigation, is very op for all physical classes. I highly recommend using this set-up when you're with a group because you will boost everyone's dps a lot. The only exception is if you're in a class full of magics. Magic classes do not benefit from Word of Instigation.

    I use this set-up when I am by myself:

    Sometimes I will use this set-up if I don't need to be boosting group dps, but still need to have a 20k heal (Healing Burst) on hand just in case. Or I might put something else in place of Mountain Crash, just depending on the situation. I will always use Blessing of Wind in any situation that I can though, if I don't have to be Instigation spec.

    - Chanter Role ;

    What do people expect from chanter nowdays?

    It have been confusing. They announce on LFG "need heals, dps and chanter" and i don't apply 'cause i don't know what i'm supposed to do.

    In my opinion, a chanter is a jack of all trades. I won't take a heal-only chanter or a dps-only chanter in a group if I'm on another toon. It is my belief (again, others will have other opinions) that a chanter should be able to dps, shield, buff, and heal. That's how the class was designed. If you have a cleric, great, you should absolutely be dpsing (and buffing). However, if the cleric disconnects or dies or whatever, you should be ready to start healing immediately. You should be able to discern when your group needs to be shielded, when clerics need to be helped, etc. Chanter requires a lot of spatial awareness. You have to be the kind of person who notices a lot. All of that said, again, this is only my opinion! You should absolutely play the class in whatever way you feel most comfortable. This is a game after all, and games should be fun. :)

    As a note though, you won't be able to main heal endgame instances without a heal boost set and proper support stigmas. So if that is something you think you might want to do, I'd recommend getting some heal boost accessories and your missing heal stigmas -- Elemental Screen and Word of Life. Also, you will need the Daevanion skill called Rejuvenating Spell (get from weekly Aetherforging craft/events/GoldSandTraders/shugo in instances). It looks like/does this:

  3. I don't think they'll do anything except turn off kicks in Evergale and I don't really care. Let them keep their shit, whatever, it's just one more thing in this game -- and at this point, if we're still putting up with the crap in this game, we're in it until it shuts down regardless lmao.

    You're assuming a lot of things, Healing.

    I know plenty of people (myself included) who have limited time to play and just want to get their runs done.. win or lose.

    Exactly. Boyfriend and I both ended up with extra runs yesterday from being kicked against our will and we didn't use them. Not everyone wants to be doing this cancerous Forevergale shit all day. It's god awful.


  5. Oh my god this Forevergale shit is just UGH. Like I don't even want to do Evergale at all because it stresses me out with the constant kicks. I don't want to feel like I have to do that shit all day. Please just let me lose in peace lmao.


  6. Necroing this old thread because I've been farming skins from old instances and have a bit of additional input.

    • Fire temple / Indratu Fortress / Draupnir Cave / Taloc / Esoterrace - Malefic skin
    • Esoterrace - Abyssal and Yamenes weapons skins (!!!)

    So what I've found is that the Abyssal skins in Esoterrace cannot be farmed. The reason is that they are inside ancient/legendary armor/weapon boxes.*** When you bring in another toon, you can loot everything else on the boss EXCEPT those boxes. I ran across the same issue with legendary armor drops in Fire Temple; they could not be looted except by the toon that actually killed the boss. The white armor drops (Malefic skins) CAN be farmed as they are not inside ancient/legendary boxes. My skin farming toon is only level 45 currently, so I haven't gotten to the higher level old instances yet, but I expect it will be the same -- if the skin/gear is in an ancient/legendary box, it won't be farmable; only white drops.

    Also a bit of how-to if anyone is unsure how to farm on lower level toons and then pass to your level 80 toons:

    • You will need two toons in the group: a level 1 on a separate account and a level 37/45/whatever on your main account. Your level 1 toon should be in the group the entire time, regardless of how much switching you do for other toons to loot.
    • Your level 1 toon can just sit at Ishalgen or wherever. Bring your level 37 (or whatever) toon inside the instance by itself (while in group with the level 1) and kill mobs/beat the instance.
    • Note: If white skins drop on the regular mobs, go to character screen with your level 37 toon -- DO NOT LEAVE GROUP -- and switch to your main. The regular mob loot despawns within 2-3 minutes, so you must be very fast on those. Loot it on your main and then go back to character screen and switch back to your level 37 toon. Continue the instance.
    • After you kill the final boss in the instance, you will probably have a 15-minute wait period before you can loot on another toon -- at least, that's how it is in Fire Temple and Esoterrace. So kill the boss and then go to character screen -- again, DO NOT LEAVE GROUP -- and switch to your main. Bring your main inside the instance (the level 1 should still be chilling in group with you) and wait by the boss until it becomes lootable.

    The drop rate isn't too bad, at least in Fire Temple and Esoterrace. You get white armor drops on mobs maybe 10% of the time and then you get at least one white armor drop on the final boss, plus the possibility of the ancient/legendary box (again, not lootable by any toon except the one who was in the instance.)

    *** If anyone has managed to successfully pass these ancient/legendary BOXES to other toons, let me know how!

    Yes its an extra help i guess its fine to just afk it, but i'm not doing a Rank S,  i'm tired of doing luna after 3 years lol

    Plus you can afk daily and get S-rank or rarely A-rank, if you afk the weekly it will take your char 30~40 minutes to end and you get a sure b-rank because the instance is timed

    All true. I guess I don't mind it because I afk the weeklies while I'm working. So it doesn't bother me at all to go 45-60 minutes before I even remember I need to tab back to Aion some days. But yeah, if your time is limited, probably not the best usage of it.


  8. If you play a class that benefits greatly from +12 stigmas, then yes, do weekly Luna. If you play a class which doesn't, then don't.

    For example, chanter benefits greatly from +12 stigmas. I need to be able to use my op Blessing of Wind stigma while still being in support/Instigation spec. I can't do that unless I unlock the extra blue slot. Therefore, weekly Luna on all of my characters is important so I can stack stigma enchantment stones. EU has an event that made +9 a safe enchanting spot for stigmas. I am stacking enchantment stones in the hopes that we also get that event in the future.

    My vandal is 40 something and Elyos.  I don't see why I can't open it since its not even for the "good" stigmas.  Its a green quality box so that means its for the lower level stigmas.

    Ohhh the green bags. Yeah, I don't know about those. The ones my boyfriend opened were the blue boxes -- the Heavy Stigma Box -- which allow you to select any stigma.

    It's changing things midstream that infuriates players most.

    +++

    They continue to have "oh shit" moments because they didn't think things through and then have to "fix" things in the middle of us enjoying them.

    - This event with the coins
    - The End of the World event with the gems
    - Flower event
    - Luna craft
    - Enchantment stone survey
    - Tia Eye event

    Probably more I'm just forgetting.

    Would be more fair to get an npc to buy other things with ridium, idk maybe stellium coins, transformation contracts, minium grade A, enchantments, idk just some useful consumables.

    +1

    Also self-resurrection stones and DP jellies (4k, not that 2k shit in the stellium npc)


  12. RNG with these boxes sucks ass. My sorc, which I only play a few times per week, had all daeva skills before my chanter (main). I didn't get my last chanter skill until I already had about 30 duplicate legendary skills. Totally agree the gold ingot one should be selectable!
