  1. Weekly Server Maintenance - November 13, 2019

    Does that really matter? Before this maintenance, I stopped doing the luna dailies so religiously on my alts because I knew I would be rewarded with luna currency for active gameplay on my main- as opposed to spending a good couple of hours completely afking on alts. Getting luna instead of stones is just a better option all around. (And we are never ever getting Korean rewards when their game scales completely differently from NA, so I hope everyone drops the notion of 500+ stones already.)
  2. Official EC-ban thread. Post your thoughts

    There's been a lot of speculation about what warranted a permaban- the most prevalent theories I've seen floating around are that the people who were perma'd already had 2 or 3 strikes on their account, or they were the ones doing the kicking. What I'm more interested in is what other steps are going to be taken after this because as far as I'm concerned, all of the temporary suspensions don't actually affect anything- it's like if someone robbed a bank, went to jail for 1-14 days, and then when they go home they still have all the money in their house to spend as they please. What's even worse is that EC is still locked, so it's not as though the people on their forced vacation are missing out on anything while the rest of us play catch-up. Yes, I believe the people who didn't exploit should be compensated and/or rewarded in some fashion. Like I said above, the people who exploited and are only temporarily banned will still have all of their gear, materials, and enchantment stones. Anyone who played honestly is still going to be just as far behind as they were before the banwave. Punishing abusers and rewarding the people who didn't exploit sets a precedent that cheaters will never win or come out on top. But leaving things as they are just makes everyone go "hmm, a few days off doesn't sound so bad in exchange for full gear- I guess next time I'll cheat too!" or "you know, if I could go back in time and spam EC? I would."
  3. Weekly Server Maintenance - November 6, 2019

    Special thanks to everyone who pitched a fit in this thread and in support tickets 800 Luna for your average 5-Star player would get you 200 fragments/40 Legendaries/8 Ultimates if you only reran ID/IB for 80 Luna each. Or, pre-fragment update you could save it to craft PVP stone boxes (1-4 Legendary stones per box). Honestly my favourite part about getting Luna as a reward was that I don't have to spend all my time afking the dailies to craft it. I was actually getting rewarded for playing the game, attending sieges, and running arenas- not zoning out and watching shows while the Luna daily ticks away. And like IJI said, I don't appreciate this change being implemented so late in the season; I was really trying hard and counting on getting my Luna rewards! Time and time again, the biggest issue is lack of communication between NC and the playerbase. Sighs all around.
  4. Fighting fragments

    Not at all. The community has been requesting additional means of acquiring Fighting Spirit Fragments for ages, and I think adding them to a few instance reward lists and events was a great decision, because it encourages and rewards gameplay. Making them a reward for losing these instances only encourages people to afk even more than they already do. Seriously, what's the point of playing and trying to win if you get the same reward bundle for losing? There has to be something to incentivize people to play actively, and in these cases it's the prospect of fragments. And I'm not complaining about afkers- just drawing a comparison between Pandora lobbies and IB/ID/KBF, in that if you want fancy loot goodies you need majority participation for the win, and that I am happy with this arrangement. Some people want loser rewards for Pandora too, and I also think that's unnecessary. I don't have unfortunate quick queues to complain about on the forums every week, because I form my own groups, run with people I know, or I quick queue with the full expectation that I'll give the instance a go if everyone else wants to play and contentedly afk if they don't. I don't have any reason to be upset with quick queue team members for afking or being undergeared when I know how the system works and what I'm getting myself into.
  5. Fighting fragments

    It's completely unnecessary to add more rewards for the losing teams in these instances, especially IB where your gear doesn't even matter. There are plenty of other methods to get fragments, and that's how most of us have been gearing up since 6.0 dropped. These new instance fragments have made things faster and easier, but it's not like they're the only source of gear progression. Honestly these posts remind me of all the afkers in Pandora lobbies when it was first introduced. In Pandora, if you lose you don't get jack squat- there's no compensation goodies if you're trying to get something for nothing. So if you don't want to play and participate, don't play. And I'm sorry for all your unfortunate quick queues and pugs, but if you don't want to actively collaborate with other players and make friends with reliable people to make progress together, an MMO probably isn't the game for you.
  6. This mount (Wind Flower/ Floating Petal) is currently available at random from the level 1-75 Lugbug Weekly reward: Lugbug's Mount Box (7 days) [item: 190120075] I've been hoping to get this mount in NA for years, and I'm really disappointed that a) it's only for low level players b) it's a 1 in 4 chance c) it lasts 7 days. @Cyan Please have the permanent version of this mount added to the BCM or make it obtainable elsewhere in-game [item: 190100217]
  7. Cleric PVP Manastones

    Hey all! o/ Recently I've been a little lost on what the defensive builds are for support clerics in PVP, and figured it'd be good to ask for advice now that fragments are more plentiful and I'm actually making some serious gear progress. At the very beginning of 6.0 people were saying to go HP/HB, then after some time there were a lot of recommendations for Physical Defense/MDef. This is what I currently have socketed, although I was never quite certain if I should go full one or the other, or do a hybrid build, or even what numbers to aim for. Since 7.0, some people are saying to go for MR and/or Evasion but I have to admit I'm preeeeetty skeptical about MR- I can't imagine how much you'd have to stack to hit the 50% cap these days. But I'm always open to advice and different perspectives, so please share your tips for manastone builds in 7.0!
  8. The 10th Anniversary Event.

    Y'all are dumb; the Anniversary event started on a Thursday, remember? So it should have gone until Thursday if we wanted a full 4-week duration.
  9. Nice job rigging arena lul

    I have weeks where 7/10 of my discipline entries are empty lobbies (zero competition points for me), so I don't see you guys being forced to fight instead of drop as any sort of a problem. I just want to have fun and fight- win or lose- so why am I penalized for other people being cowards who try to cheat the system? Seriously, I am soooo on board with the idea of changing arenas so that if you queue, you HAVE to go in. We wouldn't have all the issues with dodging and queuing against alts and dropping if that were the case!
  10. @Cyan - Transformation System

    For all the issues with transformations, it is convenient having everything in one scroll. And I appreciate how much more plentiful transparents have become, at least during the cauldron event- I gathered up all the scrolls to broker trade them to Haniya and I think I have three or four stacks that I am keeping stored in a pet for now Let's keep that trend going; I love seeing more people running around with their actual appearance! I really do think the 10 minute timers should apply to all transformation grades though. At the start of 6.0 I was totally willing to go along with NA's "balancing" concept but by now I understand it doesn't accomplish anything other than annoying people.
  11. is this a joke?????

  12. Weekly Server Maintenance - September 11, 2019

    Two questions please and thank you o/ 1. Why are the Vandal Pack equipment pieces cloth instead of clothing? We were all expecting to get skins 2. Why aren't the actual Anniversary skins included in the available cosmetics for the event? We never got the skins from the 8th or 9th Daeva's Day celebrations (8th = Ornate Daevanion [item:110901548] 9th = Red Carpet Dress [item: 110901742]) and there's still so many skins NA has yet to see, even ones promised during the 6.0 livestream @_@ Ornate Daevanion Concept Art (view more of their work on ArtStation, username pencil 1203) Red Carpet Dress by HY Lee ^ Koreans know how to party
  13. So I assume it's just cause I'm intoxicated

    If this box works the same as other PST boxes, you'll basically to churn out as many tickets as you want for X amount of time but each ticket only lasts an hour. So you can go to the character customization screen and make tweaks, see how it looks in game, make another ticket, back to customization, etc etc. until you're 100% happy with how your toon looks. Can't guarantee this box is the same as what I'm remembering but that's my guess at least
  14. Weekly Server Maintenance - September 11, 2019

    @Cyan PLEASE look into the EC exploit; the longer this goes unchecked, the more of a problem it becomes.
