  1. To return... or not.

    I'm playing a game that has PvP and PvE zones... sometimes I just don't want to spend 100% of my time dodging the enemy and being steamrolled. Maybe if they ever put "Optional PvP" (turn off and on), I'll return... Just a note that I've been playing AION since it came out and PvP is not too bad when you have ample regions... but the maps getting smaller and smaller for the end levels.. well it's like shooting fish in a very .. very .. small barrel.
  2. Real Life Pet Peeve Thread v2

    Hi I had to take a break after I fractured my elbow . Glad to be back - I made my new one Jingle (the l is an i because one of my other alts is Jingle). So far it's fun! Ode
  3. Real Life Pet Peeve Thread v2

    I'm checking out the new changes.. not played for awhile..
  4. BCM - So many items removed?

    So... plastic surgery tickets - not finding them. Where would NPC be? Want those new looks and hair styles Sorry had to work all day, just got online.
  5. I have collected all of the pieces for the Darken Lord's Cleric set and I actually have 2 Cleric Chausses. However, when I put them on,. it is not seeing the Cleric Chausses and completing the set. I've tried both Cleric Chausses and I've checked the requirements. The spelling is correct, I have all of the pieces, yet the set won't indicated the Cleric Chausses are in place .
  6. This morning someone was selling coins and passing them off as snowballs. When some brought this up in LFG they were insulted, demeaned, chided. When I stepped in, I was also insulted, told to "grow a pair" and told to basically stfu. ___ This type of behavior is incorrect. We are trying to point out to other players that this is a scam. However, then we are told by those yowling insults at us in LFG, that this is not a scam, not against TOS and it's on the fault of the buyer, not the seller. ___ I think that anyone who can behave in such a manor needs to take a long look at why they feel it is okay to jump on someone verbally and begin harassing them because they tried to stand up to them and say "No, this is not okay and I'm going to say something about this person selling something as something else for profilt". Some of those who were tossing insults even decided this is something they should be doing. ___ I think that we need to talk about this and how we feel about these types of disruptions in LFG and how best to handle folks selling silver coins for snowballs and on their sign, indicating they are snowballs.

    Meanwhile my server is showing signs of a bot and "obviously hacking" - infestations.
  8. The silence needs to end.

    Since the merge, we have had an onslaught of hackers and bots. Enemies rifting in and being caught flying straight up in a no-fly zone. Persons seeing Assassins who are in stealth w/o using detection - persons who are cloth and for some odd reason, able to take 4-5 guards on them and 2-3 players -- and they are not even a 1-star. Just today, I'm in Reshanta - and killing bots whenever I cross them and oddly I begin being targeted and tracked through Reshanta. Which is odd, because I randomly move around yet they are right on me each time. We are seeing players with an extraordinary ability to have 5-6 players on them and guards and mobs and yet they seem to be reflecting us off a we are gnats as they 1-2 shot us one by one, and most of the players on them are not small levels and are well geared. This is the players..... this is us making the gamer utterly miserable. I only play on the weekends now and went back to my other game. Did not even log AION yesterday, and I started here when AION came out. I'm tired of seeing the gold sellers the botters and the hackers. DC's come and go but these folks are there every day, ever moment and are multiplying each day. The only fun I have in the game is my friends, legion and friends from past legions. Here's the thing. If you have to cheat or hack or bot to BE someone in the game.. you've already proved .. you are not. I had hoped the merge would help us but at this point, it was better when Kahrun simply had a very small population because with the merge came an explosion of what I mention above. These people don't care - their ego far out weighs their empathy to other players. OR the fact someone's buying gold from them and they are all about profit. It's sad. I came really close to just logging last night and deleting. It's just that painful to watch the game fall apart.
  9. Killing Low Levels in PvP?

    No assumptions. There are level 75/74's rifting in and killing those who just turned 66 and have their first quests outside the main city. Easy kills, just as I killed the bots I found in the Abyss. My response to the poster above, was that "Pinkies often make it impossible for you to ignore them". And some do. I will kill a pinkie, I will kill any Asmo that crosses my path because if I don't > then I leave them to kill our fledglings. If anyone is to get AP > it should be our own faction. I'm not going to make it easy for the enemy. And if I am in the Abyss and I fly past one that's not a bot, but lower level... how do I know they are not going to mark me on the map and tell the other asmos my location? I've found if I atleast kill them or chase > odds are less Asmos will think I'm an easy kill and stay away. As far as AFKers coming out of the city to help kill. Well, you can't change a person who has their mind set on avoiding PvP. They are going to avoid it. And those who love PvP, embrace it every opportunity. My opinion with camping forts it simple. It's PvP. There is only one rule in PvP > "Don't be the one to die".. and all else goes -- if it does not violate TOS Here's how I see it. We can feign we care, we can be posers as we gear up and strut around in the amazing gear we are clothing ourselves in -- or we can participate in wars, and be what we are trying to convince others we are. I'm a long time player, since AION came out. Used to be an Asmo (Sin and Sorc) - but switched when game went free to play. Kahrun used to be the place for PvP. Legions - top legions - only took you, kept you > if you warred for the good of the faction. I'm not seeing that as much now on the Elyos side. I wish I was. I cannot fathom where the disconnect is - but it's there. We need to protect our own, so they can grow - learn and war with us. Anywho.. I think you read me wrong. I have no issue with PvP and tactics used -- I can only hope that more step up to protect their own as they try to get their quests done as our smalle Archdeavas.
  10. GP and Medals for pvp'ing

    If we gave GP and Medals for killing the enemy, we probably would have more hackers Today, there were two rangers which rifted in. Somehow, they were able to not die with 2 guards on them and 2-3 other players. One of them, I was not able to get a screenshot, but they flew straight up from a standing position, and others saw them do this also. The other ranger, was in hide, but an Elyos did come up, hit detection and nothing. About 2 seconds later, the ranger came out of hide and attacked me and the other. A sorcerer also, some how able to literally get no damage from guards, and able to take on 2-3 players w/o dying. Then we have the bots in the Abyss. Easily, bumped into 5 in one small area and about 5 more scattered around. I'm pretty sure the Asmos experience the same thing. Hacking is just out of control. Damage hacks, speed hacks, flight hacks... botting is getting there and of course - gold selling is starting up again. Vendors appearing here and there. We are seeing Asmos up high in ridges we are unable to get to, yet they were on the ground moments earlier and able to escape us. Again, I'm not saying this is just one race, however since I don't have an alt or an Asmo >> I can only give my version. Ode
  11. The pets which have enemy detection no longer looks at the enemy when alarming. This used to be a quick way for us to target the enemy (in my case > Asmos). But now they seem to only be looking at themselves.
  12. Well... today is the last Sunday in October..... maybe next weekend? * I'd still love the idea of houses being rented through the shop. Only because of the utter shortage. I just want MORE guestblooms & yard space for growing plants.
  13. Killing Low Levels in PvP?

    ^ this has happened to me ... years and years ago before Fast Track came out. Most of the ganking now is level 74/75's rifting into do kill quests in the Archdeava lands - and they specifically target the Elyos, level 66, doing the first Archdeava quests outside of the central buildings. It's still a 9 level difference, if the person just hit 66 - and that poor player won't have enough essence points or better gear to be able to fend them off. So what can we do? Well... many seem to group up and help protect them - and I'm seeing a trends where more and more are going outside the gate to watch over them as they do their kills. Also, when an Asmo is spotted - GROUPS go out to hunt them down and kill. They don't just chase them off >> they chase them down and kill them. Very proud of my server for this.
  14. Aion repair project

    It's a simple fix to keep things like this from happening. Each of them should be required to create a character > and spend a specific amount of time in the game per week. The best way to figure out what is wrong, is to have your hands in it - same as the other players.... and you will see how many hack, exploit, bot, sell gold and etc. The best view to see clearly > is from the inside. ____ I love the merge ... but.. I'm am proud of how I see Elyos helping out other Elyos in the Abyss when they are being attacked by Asmo, even if the Asmos out number them. The attitudes when I'm in the squads is outstanding. I am proud of how the Elyos are giving our returning players and new fledglings advice and assistance. How the older legions are lowering their recruiting level and allowing returning and new players to join. This is the AION I remember from when it began. The strength of the game - is in the players and how they communicate and work together. I'm happy to play now, so many things to do and .... actually got back into PvPing. My items are selling on the broker and .. again, folks are very friendly and helpful. We just seem to need more folks to show up to wars. I appreciate we have such great communication - people listen when Asmos are spotted in lluma and many many go out to take care of the problem. More and more each day are out scouting and tracking down > killing rifting asmos. It makes me very proud. But we need more for the wars. The last one in Kaldor we were greatly outnumbered but had some amazing leaders calling out directions. I've not warred in so long, it was exhilarating and well earned GP.
  15. First thread

    Hopped over here from the DN side... wow... just you posted so far huh? - hug - Wait.. your Elyos right? If you are Asmo *taking hug back
