  1. Well, constructive criticism (Thank Say)

    Selling those items on the BCM is still going to create the same situation as now. The people who don't spend real money will still suffer because they will need to have large amounts of kinah to buy the items on the broker that the paying people put there. You will still needs lots of kinah and if still doesn't guarantee that you will progress in anyway due to rng. Like Healingsquid was stating it would be 5.0x patches all over again where the people who spent money had commander +25 and over sets and everyone else in prime guardian gear because enchanting your item over +15 was a nightmare and you needed a lot of omegas unless you were lucky. I too saw in those patches people constantly posting on LFG for people to join Gold arena and even 1 vs 1 arenas etc. Simple fact is we need actual ideas that will help everyone. No one wants to fight anyone, including someone the same class as them and you do 560 damage to their 3k damage.

    I logged in tonight to do siege, took a short break to craft some ultimate pvp stones. Crafted them and they all failed on my legendary pvp gear. To Cyan, Gideon and Hime I’d like to explain the current situation of Aion in comparison to previous Aion updates and will predominantly use 5.8 as it was the most recent and had the best events, please do remember these virtual items cost you nothing to implement and make the playerbase happy, most of the items I will mention in the reward list below are NOT OBTAINABLE via in game means besides events. Aion is one of those games where having fun events that are generously rewarding is the reason the game is enjoyable to the vast majority, and completing other content is just something else to do along with PvP instances. Towards the end of 5.8 with the end of the world event and Smoldering fire temple were the best events that I can remember recently, you guys had even stated the rewards would be more generous than previous events, I’m sure you can be aware how much people farmed to get rewarded with items going into the next update and the positive feedback following it, however after 6.2 the events declined to be next to meaningless, and in roughly 2 weeks you could maybe get 1-2 enchantment stones and the “rubbish items” were meant to be useful during 5.8, not now as opposed to the end of the world event where you could use ALT characters to spam the event and receive maybe 100 tempering solutions a week, which back then was enough to enchant all 7 accessories to +8 or 9 if you’re lucky, which was considered above average gear for the time. Now during 6.7, I have enchanted every item to Ultimate +15 and it took me 500 legendary PvP enchantment stones and 100 ultimate, which takes an extreme amount of time, money and effort to do without events and is almost on the point of impossible for some, The next events should resemble what we had during the end of the world event, its about that time where we will get 7.0 soon and everyone should be able to catch up on gear going into the next ‘gear reset’ (keep in mind I myself have reached the gear cap and am still asking for others to be able to catchup) I will suggest events and rewards and why they are so needed and impossible to get in game. The 4 major items NEEDED in LARGE quantities are; Abyss points, Ancient, Legendary and Ultimate PvP enchantment stones, Spirit fragments and Manastones. - Abyss points are easy for one reason; they can be farmed in game in a reasonable time frame with the help of ap boost events such as the one we just had (200% ap boost). - Ancient, Legendary and Ultimate PvP stones are not nearly as accessible as Omega enchantment stones and Tempering solutions were in 5.8 events, and many more of them are needed (e.g. 500 Legendary, 100 Ultimate for 17 items +5-15) - Spirit fragments; This item is right now one of the biggest problems, in order to make 1000 of these at the current broker price of 50,000 kinah per ‘Ancient Guiding Stone’ it will cost 950million kinah, which is not very easily obtained following the release of 6.2 if at all. To upgrade 17 items from legendary grade to ultimate grade it costs 4500 spirit fragments. - Manastones were a very common item in 5.8 with SELECTABLE +12 manastone bundles and currently the only way to get those were to have them saved from the 5.8 update and you need roughly 100 Manastones to complete an entire set of 17 items. The following events should not continue to be like what we have now, where you open a box at the end of the instance, giving you currency to buy a singular item at an npc. Events should return to be like Daeva Dash or Smoldering Fire temple which were community favorite events based on the fact you can loot a box at the end of the instance which would give you USEFUL ITEMS for finishing it, rather than nothing until you complete the instance for example; 6 times for enough tokens to buy X. The main problem is all of these items I will list are needed in large quantities and the easiest way is events. (please keep in mind all of these items are virtual and don’t cost you anything to make the players happy) Minor/rubbish rewards: - Spirit fragment x 25 - Spirit fragment x 50 - Selectable level 80 Manastone Bundle - Ancient Guiding stone x 100 - Ancient kibrium x 100 Mid-tier rewards: - Spirit Fragment x100 - Legendary PvP enchantment stone x 5 - Legendary PvP enchantment stone x 10 - Ultimate PvP enchantment stone x 3 - Ancient Guiding stone x 250 - Ancient Kibrium x 250 - Event Skin (?) - Legendary Manastone bundle (selectable) - Ultimate Manastone bundle (selectable) Greater rewards: - Spirit Fragment x 300 - Legendary PvP enchantment stone x15 - Legendary PvP enchantment stone x20 - Ultimate PvP enchantment stone x 5 - Ultimate Anomos Weapon Box (selectable) same as we had provenance weapon box - Ancient Guiding stone x 1000 - Ancient Kibrium x 100 - Ultimate Manastone bundle x 3 - Legendary Manastone bundle x 3
  3. Need a guide for aion 2019 / class recomendation

    Like you said this is an opinion and an odd one at that. I was so confused seeing this because I keep up with the patches and watch pvp videos. I watched the korean sm named Chovegeta today and his list I 100% agree with. Cleric isn't better than any of those in the current patch since in 7.0 their heals and dps got gutted a bit again. Heals were lessened and removed from some things and some of their dots got the damage removed and are just debuffs aka they aren't blowing you up and healing back to full in 2 skills. Some videos I have seen they don't even bother to use sacrificial power for dps because the negative heal boost is way too harsh. You can go on youtube and check for his stream today. His list is Gunner is the current number 1 class in 7.2. I agree with that because they got buffed in 7.2. The skill that the icon is a red bullet does and extra 2.5k damage per hit for a few seconds and is on a low cd. Enough to make temps run away when they use it. At least the videos I have seen. His other top classes are sm, sw, Painter and temp. He also says sm now beats cleric which I also agree with since in 7.0 they now have another undispellable skill which means a cleric will now 100% be silence buried fear etc. Also some of their damage got buffed. Sw also got a buff and he said temps beat Painter. He said ranger is good but better in 6 vs 6. I didn't ask him about anything else.
  4. Ready to 7.0 ? / Enchant Rate Again / Why Prestige ?

    I agree with the majority that is said in this thread. I was on a stream and the streamer was also playing Aion. I told him well I am done luna so I am going to go pvp on another game. He asked "You're not going to pvp on Aion?". I told him hell no. The gear difference between people who pay a lot and a f2p player like me is way too much. Fighting people in full +15 ultimate gear and legendary and also kaisnel transformations versus not even +15 legendary gear and ancient transformation is not my idea of fun. That's what we have right now. Now I am not here asking for free gear but I find it hilarious when someone people state on here "Ncwest said that are not going to focus on events anymore". I find it hilarious because when we do have events it doesn't stop them from making the majority of them very heavy in the p2w department. Unless they meant they are are not going to focus on events for f2p people which is what it looks like honestly. I'll say what some people will most likely say and save them the time. "It's a business how do you expect them to make money?". Honestly from what I've learnt is if you make all your customers happy they will have no problem showing their gratitude by spending money which is 100% Ncsoft's business model. Imagine telling those f2p people in 7.0 there is now new gear that they will most likely take extremely long to get or actually never get it before another patch comes out with more gear that they probably will never have. As a person who looks at the future patches that and having to enchant transformations which I will probably never get anything above legendary doesn't make me want to play this game. Open world and pvp in general is as disappointing as the last season of GOT. Just kidding GOT was worse according to people.

    Thank you very much for these changes. I was not too keen on my playing Aion anymore. Probably still won't as much but at least this is a start.
  6. sm

    Am I seriously reading a thread where leathers are complaining about fear when a sin has 4 or 5 resists and ranger has 3 and both of them can literally stun lock cloth classes to death. Remove shock to early gg stun lock. Remove shock too late dead from damage gg. Do you know how hard it is to counter strategize against the resists, damage and remove shock baits? What next? I swear if an AT comes in here complaining about anything I am so never looking at another pvp thread.
  7. sm

    Interesting thread. Still don't know why we cant engage in a discussion, disagree with each other and not go into insults. As a person who played and plays both sorc and sm it is an even fight. If both are good players that battle can go in either direction. You can bait or kite each others skills that can turn the fight in your favor. I can agree with seven that fear locking doesn't doesn't kill anyone in Aion anymore. Hasn't been for a long time. Fear duration has been decreased and will get cut by like 1 or 2 s in 7.0 I think. Like he also stated command bodyguard in this patch is basically useless because every pet dies incredibly fast, even earth spirit. I don't even know why the big argument is about even the "op" classes have counters. Equally geared the sorc can bait you to use remove shock, cc and proceed to stun lock nuke. Only thing I'd state is no leather classes should be losing to any of the mage classes and neither should an AT. Also a Chanter shouldn't honestly be losing to any either because of that nice heal, auto dispel skill. Good luck burying anything on one. I am still not saying a Chanter is unbeatable.
  8. Skins are "End Game Items"

    My experiences with support have been good.... up until 6.2.. When the night before 6.2 patch I had various items on the broker to sell. I was going to take them off but decided to leave them on because what could go wrong. 6.2 patch hits and every one of my items somehow disappeared. I contacted support and told them and in a span of 6 days I spoke to 6 different representatives. The first 2 couldn't find my items and kept replying the same things. The 3rd or 4th found my items and told me I made I 1.8 bil. I told them that's great and all but where is the kinah then. After losing count of how many messages I sent, their response from a higher up was "Sorry about your items and kinah but we can only assume that how 6.2 was set up, the kinah you had was what was intended", leaving me severely annoyed because those items were from farming "The End of The World Event" on 11 toons. The other problem I had was during a dredge run. A prowler mob hit my cleric at mid and knocked me below the map. I sent screenshots and told them what bosses we got. They verified everything but instead of giving me the bundles, someone deiced to give me an entry count after the last dredge window was open. So in other words I couldn't use it before reset.

    I would so love to follow Ncsoft's business model. I will open a business do as little as I can while clearly not having much interest in my customers but they still give me revenue. Seems solid to me from looking at some of the posts on the forums. It is so clear they don't care about NA but here we have people still defending some of their most blatantly greedy ideas while using that some ole "It's a business. How do you expect them to make money!!!". What I have learnt is that if you treat your customers well they won't think twice about giving you money. Unless I had a specific business that when I treated some customers better than others because they spend more and ignore the ones that don't and I could still turn a huge profit that would be great. We have/had bugs in our version that have been active for a very long time and are still active. Items that other regions have that we should have *cough* transparent scrolls *coughs* yet people are on here going "Omg f2p player be happy with what you have!!!". You do know when the f2p people leave the servers will shut down and Ncsoft will leave with all your real life kinah right? Now let's take a moment of silence in remembrance to City of Heroes.
  10. @Cyan What is going on with the servers?? I just had 2 disconnections while in an event run for Herelym Mine and lost 3 of my group members and didn't get any chests. So puzzled right now.

    Thank you very much!
  12. event already a failure

    I don't know why anyone is surprised. A guy in LFG last night was saying he was happy we finally got a "good" event and I told him that he shouldn't rejoice as yet until he sees the rate of the drops for that item we need. I find it absolutely hilarious that there's a number next to the items letting you know how many times a week you can buy them when in actuality you will only get the over priced items at the very end of the event, one time.

    Thank you very much. Would like an answer to this question though. @Cyan

    I crafted the skill box on 4 toons last week because I play them. I honestly don't know why it is taking so long to hear back on this problem. I don't know why its so hard to come to the forums and say "Hey we messed up and here's what we are going to do" or here's our apology for the inconvenience. It's so hard to get skills as it is which is another nonsense in itself. Also the people complaining about enchanting are you referring to ancient gear or legendary? Because if you google Aion 6.5 enchantment rates you should get the Aion powerbook link which shows the difference between 6.2 and 6.5 enchantments rates and the change is only 3% from +10 and over so if you are failing it's "working as intending". Also there's an older forum post about ultimate stones on the forums complaining the rate for those stones don't seem that great and that was after we got the 6.5 change. So far the ancient gear rates are back to 6.5. Watched a streamer who had no problem enchanting ancient gear and I didnt as well. I did have fails and so did he but it wasn't 6.2 standards.
