  1. What meme is trying to (impolitely) say is that songweavers are the easiest class to play, bordering on broken, which is why there are rarely guides for them. Sleep your opponent(s), spam your skills, dispel yourself as needed, restore your HP and MP.

    Crucible may give but not all can do it as top players can.

    Floor 16 awards a major minion contract. Getting to floor 16 is very doable, even for lower levels! I don't like Crucible Spire; I'm a very social player and I don't like doing solo stuff. Still, I go up to floor 16 every week just so I can get my weekly contract. Give it a shot!

    but I honestly don't believe that from 20 cores you didn't get one to +3 

    Lol I have all +3 and one +4. I've gone through more than 20. It's not that hard to believe what Raefu is saying. You may have god tier rng, but the rest of us don't. :)

  4. I can confirm that it is not 100% to go from 0 to +1 on essence cores (when using just an essence core solution). I swear I have broken at least two that I can remember, maybe more lol. Regarding using omegas, I don't know. I prefer not to use omegas on essence cores because I need them for gear lol.

    I also regularly roll 1 or 2 on loot. I'm not a great example of RNG lmao.

    I can confirm you can get to +2 with shining enchantment stone and greater supplements with 100% rate

    Is there a spreadsheet or something to back this up? (That sounds rude, but I don't mean it that way lol.) I thought +1 was okay, but I hadn't heard a guarantee on +2. I'd love to see some proof on this so I can feel secure it doing it.

    Sorry for the newb question here, But where do you get stigma stones for support. i'm only level 63 atm and the only wayI can see to get them is to buy them on the broker which is crazy expensive, healing burst and blessing of rock are 75mil plus. Am i missing something here??

    All of mine were purchased on the broker. However, there are also events that give them out -- but then, it's randomized, so you might end up with a gunslinger stigma from the event which you would then have to put up on the broker to sell. (You could use the kinah you make from the gunner stigma to buy the chanter stigma.) But yeah, short answer is you're going to need to just buy them over time if you don't have all of the kinah right now.

    Why :S ??? Rewards are awful

    Not if you're trying to get your 75AP gear. That's what the event is intended to do -- give you AP and spinels to buy PVP gear.

    EDIT: Oh geez, I'm an idiot. Sorry, I thought you were saying Kumuki rewards are awful, then I re-read and saw you actually said Upgrade Arcade. SORRY LMAO.

  8. Leaping Flash is a viable replacement for Mountain Crash *in PVE*. It will do as much damage as or more than MC if it crits. However, it is a charged skill, so you've gotta stand still for 3 seconds. So it's not viable for use in PVP. Totally workable in PVE though.

    In my opinion, chanters are never going to be great dps. They just weren't designed that way. Even "good" dps chanters still have nowhere near as much dps as sorcs, etc. Most groups will prefer you to be able to help the entire group do better dps (with WoI, mantras, support heals as needed, etc) rather than trying to make your own dps as high as possible when it STILL won't be very good compared to most of the other classes.

    Also, switching between dps and support is very viable. Supporting a cleric doesn't require you to re-allocate your essences as you're just the back-up. You can easily use the equipment switch to switch back and forth between your dps set and your support set. I only change my essences to support if I know I'm going to be doing all or at least half of the healing. Are you using the one-click gear switch option located in your profile? Make sure your mace/shield are the default weapons for your support set and your staff is the default for your dps set so you don't waste time switching gear AND switching weapons. Make sure your support gloves have cast speed, not attack speed.

    As Bryos said, I think you'll like have WoI and Blessing of Stone. In fact, I actually prefer using WoI on myself instead of Lucidity because WoI has a higher attack percentage. (Again, talking PVE here, not PVP.) You can always throw MC back in your rotation for solo stuff.

  9. Chanter stigma set-ups vary wildly because it's such a versatile class, and you should definitely play the class the way in which you are comfortable. Otherwise, what's the point? :) Here is the stigma set-up I use like 90% of the time. It is 72% support, 28% dps. I have the other stigmas, but I rarely pull them out unless I'm trying to do Crucible Spire or something. Note, I rarely PVP, so this is based on PVE: http://aion.mouseclic.com/tool/stigma/cADFILM65

    Losing Mountain Crash KIND of sucks, but it's honestly not as bad as you might think. Again, I pull it out sometimes if I'm doing Crucible Spire because I don't need all of those support stigmas. I am a hybrid chanter, leaning toward support. I have a cleric's healing boost Apollon set for support. I have a Harvester/Apollon/Sophisticated blend for dps. My gear is decent -- not amazing, not terrible. I'd say I'm an average chanter -- again, not amazing, not terrible. I can solo heal Adma/Theo/UA Barracks and heal (with back-up support) AoE, as long as there isn't anyone with like 13k HP in the group lol and the dps is decent. I cannot solo heal CoE or DL. That kind of gives you an idea.

    In my experience, chanters are never expected to heal if there is a cleric in the group. You're perfectly fine using your dps gear and essences; that's what I do. You will need to support the cleric as needed, of course. However, sometimes the cleric is a lowbie or you end up in UA siege and there is no cleric in your group. Then you are expected to heal.

    Word of Instigation is, in my opinion, pretty crucial for group play -- as is Blessing of Stone. They're not mandatory, of course, and many chanters don't have them. I just find them to be important, and a lot of dps/tank classes do too. You're not going to be ostracized if you don't have them though. :) 

    So all of this was basically a really long way of saying that there's no right or wrong answer. Sometimes chanter group play is strictly dps; sometimes you're going to need to heal. Be prepared for both possibilities.

    Few people played SW before, because it was a class for gays (this is litterally what several guys told me years ago). Now it's the most played class, even among men. Why? Is it no more gay?

    Cost of gear,even if a player supported this company at say 50 dollars per month which is far more than a subscription they would still fall far behind the massively pay 2 gear/win players.

    I've always felt like the gear grind is balanced with leveling -- IF you don't try to rush the leveling. So many people only care about getting to level 75, so they just do nothing except try to reach that goal. If you go from level 66 to 75 in only 1-2 months, then yeah, you're going to have a gear problem because you just haven't been playing long enough to get the gear itself, plus the necessary stones, omegas, etc. I don't think it's outrageous that those things take time. If they were handed to us on a silver platter, we'd complain about being bored -- or just flat-out complain based on jealousy as was the case during the Halloween event recently.

    All you young whippersnappers and your leveling rush. Take the time to smell the flowers! xD

    you got Harverster set (best pve gear atm) why should you do BoS? If you got medals/ PVP pieces from event why should you do siege? If you dont need do pvp or pve anymore why should you play?

    Because it's fun and it's a chance to hang out with your friends lol? Or just meet new people and be social? I honestly don't understand this mentality, and I truly mean no offense to you by saying that. Many people don't play with one goal in mind (getting gear). There are many reasons to play any game, not just Aion. I have some Harvester pieces, but it wouldn't stop me from doing BoS.

  12. The little scene with the shugos building the house made me wish for a game in which I get to be the shugo and I just do shugo things like go to my day job in the broker and live in my house and stuff. Like Animal Crossing: Shugo Life lol.

    I was on KR which was smaller even than BR was prior to the merge. Playing now compared to pre-merge is like comparing night and day.

    I was on IS, and even to me, it feels like night and day. I never had to shift+F12 while I was just sitting in Norsvold before merge. Now I do unless I want to be stuck with 15fps in the broker lol.
