  1. Weekly Server Maintenance - March 6, 2019

    6.0 took a lot from us and I'd love to kick up a fuss about all that but for now, I'll settle for having our characters returned to us.
  2. Things that were deleted unnecessarily

    I did some poking around in Oriel this week and some of the old souvenirs and crafted furniture are for sale via the shugo nomads but since their wares vary from season to season I'm not sure just how many crafted items are still available. (The fact that the same old hearthblooms for things like alchemy paper are still there makes me laugh in a sad kind of way.) And if you kill the seasonal agrints you can get bundles with that series of furniture that has, like, the animal pelt and bed with a weird old man face on it. Slim pickings, and not exactly what I was hoping for. Honestly from what I can tell, Cyan and Hime and co. just flat out weren't aware that this stuff was getting deleted because when my girlfriend asked Cyan specifically the reaction was along the lines of, "Oh, really? Well that's weird." (u__\) Seriously, they need to make the crafted furniture available via in-game NPCs and more furniture needs to be added to the cash shop. The Valentine's Day packs are a good start and have a super appealing price tag, but they're also a very specific aesthetic. There's so many other options they could have for sale- Antique Golden, Cloud, Breezy, Eastern, Camping, Club, Harvest Revel, Solorius, Antique, Marble, Rustic, and probably some others I'm forgetting. The customized employment contracts with dancing warehouse npcs and such would also be a great option to have on the BCM. Buuuut that's a lot of adding new things to the game, and my main concern and the concern of this thread is still getting the old things back
  3. Things that were deleted unnecessarily

    Definitely agree with everything listed here but I'd like to add that I am insanely disappointed to find out so many furniture and guestbloom features were removed with 6.0 I knew all of the crafting professions were going to be deleted so maybe it's my own fault for not stocking up on some of the crafted furniture, but to my knowledge nothing in the forums or patch notes mentioned how Furniture recipes and guestblooms in Luna were removed Guestblooms can no longer be purchased from any in-game vendors Certain furniture items purchased with guestpetals are no longer available Most furniture packs on the BCM were removed Furniture purchased in Sanctum is no longer available (the windows and low partitions) There is a new NPC with a tab for crafted furniture but it's not very extensive; there's a ton of things missing- particularly the procced crafts, rugs, and cabinets. You know, the furniture people actually want. I've been disappointed for a long time that NCWest hasn't updated the available furniture that you can preview on aioncodex and the powerbook, but taking away what we did have makes me downright bitter.
  4. A Solution to the GP Problems/Complaints?

    Over the past few months, I've been doing a lot of reading up on various forum posts and suggestions regarding the current GP system, which has a number of problems. I'm incredibly frustrated by the fact that my rank is in a near-constant state of flux; it makes little difference how much effort I put in or how many sieges I attend- rather, my ability to Xform and assist my faction is entirely dependent on which players above me fall off the rankings list or make a comeback. And I know a lot of players are in a similar situation, where they swap between 4 Star and 5 Star every couple days or so. As of yet, this thread is the best suggestion I've seen to fix the whole GP mess. I have seen a bunch of people suggest a complete GP wipe but I really don't think throwing away multiple factions' worth of time and effort over the years in one fell swoop is exactly the best idea. (Not to mention the faint P2W aspect when you take into account the fact that Prestige players get more GP per siege than non-paying players.) Don't get me wrong, I'm genuinely glad that everyone has to attend sieges in the current patch to keep their rank, because only actively sieging players deserve to Xform (in my opinion). But because there's no other source of GP gain, the rankings are largely stagnated and I think it's a real shame that players don't have any opportunity to climb the ranks in 6.X. Implementing and re-implementing sources of GP gain while requiring a set amount to be from siege attendance is a really lovely compromise- I just hope the team here at NCWest can be bothered to not only read our suggestions, but to actively apply them.
  5. @Cyan Any news about how the GP system is going to work in the upcoming patch? I've read about changes made in KR and EU but I'd love to know what to prepare for here in NA, or if I should expect the system to stay the same
  6. Costume Rotation

    Ooh, another anniversary skin I'd love to see is the Red Carpet Dress [item:110905027] There's just so many beautiful old skins that haven't been released in NA yet, it's a bit of a shame when Luna skins make it onto the BCM's rotation
  7. Weekly Server Maintenance - September 19, 2018

    Just to be extra sure, does this mean there is a chance the stigma level will stay the same upon failure? Or that there is only a chance the enchantment level goes down by 1, and otherwise it will break to 0? (I'm guessing the former but stigma enchanting is always such a stressful and often pricey ordeal, I want to be certain )
  8. The Alchemy Event Instances and Rewards List

    I try my very best not to be rude around here so I'm sorry to say this, but the food and manastones listed as rewards are literally garbage- like I will genuinely throw all those manastones away, because anything lower than 6 (which we acquire from the Luna weekly) is not worth the stats or the crafting resources required for morphing into higher stones. Could we perhaps reconsider this list and make the manastones at least +6s instead of 4s? D:
  9. I don't think there's any harm in leveling up crafting if you enjoy it- particularly alchemy for the healing pots and basic scrolls (it's a cheaper and more efficient process than aetherforging those items), and then armorsmithing/weaponsmithing/tailoring if you want any of the skins. It's a pretty fast and cheap process these days and it didn't take long at all to master armorsmithing so that I could make some old balic gear. Which uh. Ended up looking bad on my toon but hey it's all good. But if it's boring to you then you can skip the whole crafting process. I do suggest working on your Aetherforging during the boost weekends if nothing else, as it's extremely useful and will continue to be so in future patches. And I'll 100% echo the sentiments towards construction. I mean, I'm a freak of nature who absolutely loves crafting and spent her first six months in Aion mastering construction- and while I don't regret it, I also wouldn't recommend it at all! (So many nenana candles... o_o)
  10. Costume Rotation

    Since we've gotten new mounts on the BCM and a bunch of skins that were requested on this thread, I thought I'd go ahead and mention the Wind Flower mount- it's one of the few we haven't seen in game yet as far as I know, not even as a temporary mount I would love for it to be made available somehow or another, it's my absolute favourite! Wind Flower [item: 190100217] (And y'know, my usual begging for Summery Linens and Royal Hanbok but mostly the mount today! )
  11. Eeeee I'm super happy to hear this! So glad you guys listened to the community feedback, I can't wait to spam the living daylights out of all the pve instances on the event list next week >:D
  12. Soooooooo any word from the team, or are we keeping the super crummy mechanic of random ice pick drops for one person and no one else after all? :1
  13. Weekly Server Maintenance - July 25, 2018

    I'm rather disappointed- the emergency maintenance didn't fix the ice pick drops or the artifact sales limit
  14. @Cyan This isn't really the problem though, I think it's fine if the event items drop directly instead of having to open bags. The huge glaring issue to me is that the picks are a drop only for one person in the group instead of shared like the blocks are, and how the bags were. So you end up with many people snagging the ice pick simply just because they looted a boss first (either on purpose or accidentally)- and when the drop isn't even a guarantee, it leads to a whole lot of frustration and resentment all around.
  15. Item skins

    I tested it real quick just to be sure, and the luna wardrobe doesn't let you skin chain over cloth. You'll get an error message saying "The appearance of [insert cloth item name here] cannot be modified into [insert chain item name here] and vice versa as they are different type of items." Maybe someday they'll let us use any armor type to skin onto any other armor type, but not today! :')
  16. Natural Magic Stones as Event Reward

    I was super delighted to have stone of life fragments included as rewards for the Secret of the Ancients event, and I think it would be great to include more rare aetherforging mats in event reward tables- or loot from instances. It's fine to have craftable items that are hard to acquire, but the Prowess stuff is borderline impossible. And there's no point in crafting any of it to sell because frankly, no one would be willing to pay what they're "worth". Alternative suggestion- perhaps Prowess boxes could be added to the Evergale Canyon Reward Chest instead? Since the other aetherforged equipment is included in those as well. :>
  17. A Simple Question.

    It's easy to put on a tinfoil hat and suspect NC is adjusting success rates behind the scenes, but really I think RNG and luck are just very very fickle. I've gotten two of my stigmas to +9 so far today, but others it's been a struggle even getting to 6. And I stocked up a lot ahead of time specifically so that I wouldn't have to shell out billions of kinah (which I don't have lol) and most of my stigs are at 7 or 8 now. Since I probably won't make much more progress, I think I'll just be content and save up again for next power up
  18. Event Server Maintenance - May 24, 2018

    Seconding this! The sentiment of the diogenite bundles is nice and I'm pleased as punch about the stone of life fragments (because for real, those things are flat out not included in the primordial loot table and you cannot convince me otherwise ), but there's other crafting mats that would be really good as event rewards- even basics like spirit stones of light and ancient crafting/chronos/eternity stones because literally everyone needs those- and instance drops, in the case of materials like water drops, natural gems, and natural magic stones.
  19. I think this has a really nice balance between running instances and afk/login rewards, and not much in the way of crazy p2w at all. I'm a little heartbroken at another event with no Cheerleader Hairpins to be seen, but y'all would not believe how happy I am to see Stone of Life Fragments on this list!
  20. Shaky Hands Trouble in PvP

    Oh man, I totally know where you're coming from! I've gotten a lot more comfortable with PvP over time but even now I still get nervous sometimes and my hands will shake like crazy after a nerve wracking encounter. Besides just practice and exposure, I think it's like Forgotten said, it's important to figure out what exactly makes you anxious, so that you can find ways to feel more comfy and confident. In my case I was absolutely terrified of being judged or yelled at, so I had to start small with, like, afking my arenas and only pvping with super chill people who wouldn't raise their voices or blame me. (And mercilessly block all the jerks along the way ) Some folks take PvP waaaay too seriously, so it's really great when you can find players who die and just take it in stride and keep trying. Listening to music also helps, whether it's to calm you down or hype you up!
  21. Costume Rotation

    @Cyan I'm super jazzed to see the Wave Song skins on the BCM (please let Sea Feast be next, eee!) but... why is the shield not included in the lineup? D:
  22. Costume Rotation

    Aah not true- while you can't put shields or weapons in the luna wardrobe, you can totally register armor. I don't have any skins in my wardrobe actually, just the vanquisher and elite reian chain sets
  23. Daeva dash fix

    I'm not sure what happens with 0 points but one time both teams were exactly tied and we all got 4 keys, so that's my best guess
  24. Costume Rotation

    Oh, I wouldn't object to the conqueror's mark skins being put on the BCM as well. The armors at least can be acquired from Danuar Sancutary but in general the prices for those skins and mounts have been ridiculous since day one. I think I gave up around the 2k point while farming for a wing box- which wouldn't even guarantee me the wings I wanted, god bless.
