  1. @Kibbelz Regarding Server Transfers

  2. New Launcher

    Because some of us have enough experience with any changes that NCWest makes having adverse affects. It's not about "just a launcher" - it's about all the bugs and headaches that typically go with everything NCWest introduces unnecessarily. Filed under category: "if it ain't broke, don't fix it". That said, so far, except for the first-day issues, the launcher has been nice. When the game randomly logs me out for being afk 30 seconds for a coffee refill, I get back in quicker now. It's still slower than GameForge's setup, which I would love to have NCWest adopt, but it's still mildly better (so far) than what it was a short while ago.
  3. New Launcher

    I wasn't trying to run two. I was trying to run one, and getting the two-client error. For some reason it was running as a background process and had to shut it down via the Task Manager. It wasn't running where it could be seen, or on the task bar. So if you (future readers troubleshooting) are getting the error, try opening the task manager and shutting down any instances of Aion/Launcher in the list.
  4. New Launcher

    Same thing here. Downloaded, installed, and it says "can't open a second client" when I have nothing open. Bugged to the point of being unusable before it was even used once; not even surprised.
  5. New Launcher

    This is my immediate reaction, too. I haven't downloaded it yet - but just going on their track record, I expect bugs and B.S. They can't fix the mountain of years-old problems they already have, and decide to add a new layer of complexity so they can have more things that break that they can't fix.
  6. @DevilNest-KT - I ddin't have wrong info, I had no info. I wasn't sure what they were. But ok, so that's really not even a big deal. It's easy-to-get AP and a meaningless amount of kinah.
  7. The quasi-conspiracy theorist in me, surrounding all-things-NCSoft has an idea of when. If the vouchers are 100% guaranteed success enchants, they will probably wait until the spending calms down. LFG is flooded with message of people using stones to enchant stuff to +15, rather than wait on the guaranteed vouchers. So as long as those people keep spending cash on stones to rush to 15, they will wait to deliver the vouchers. That seems to be the general motivation behind most things they do - and there haven't been responses to the queries on the vouchers and the gift basket for the update. Under other circumstances, there would normally be at least a "yes, we know, we're working on it." That just seems to be the trollish nature of NCSoft's model. Once people get their whole collection to max, then they can rage about having vouchers that no longer do them any good. Without that, it just wouldn't be Aion.
  8. HACK

    It's a sin (Pet Shop Boys pun?), not a ranger. That said, I'm not sure what the screenshot is supposed to be showing. It looks like the vandal is headed in completely the other direction in the later (second) screenshot. They are headed the wrong direction and out of range to be attacking the sin, but are attacking. If I had to guess - and that's all this is, a guess - it's just a lag issue. The sin's client hadn't yet received updated data on the vandal's target. From all I can tell from the screenshot, the vandal is attacking something else. If they are using a cheat, and headed the wrong direction, they are using the cheat wrong - or, I guess possibly escaping, but pausing to attack some other critters.
  9. Is it safe to come back?

    Weevy and Grace in one place...I'm feeling all nostalgic, and craving running to the middle of Levinshor to run IS. #teary-eyed

    Not pad hopping. Not shard wars. But farming? If people couldn't farm materials, then your running scrolls, your jellies - anything that required materials to craft were more expensive (bots notwithstanding). In the early days of EB, Strange Ide crystals were required to make the keys to get into EB. The broker was often empty of the crystals, they took time to farm, and there was a lot of killing going on in the only two farming areas in the Idian Depths. There's nothing like that now. (For some reason, couldn't edit the one above that saved by accident before I responded)

    And the pad wars at Broken Cliff in Katalam, PVP in ID - fighting over the strange ide crystal farming area, and the areas where rare materials were farmed, and instance entrances...PVP wasn't just common and fun, it had actual economic meaning in the game, so it didn't just feel like slap fighting between camps. The same for sieging - when you had to fight to open Silentera Canyon, or to gain entrance to the Eye - now nothing has any real meaning. Siege to get GP for a title that really doesn't matter, meh.
  13. LOL Why Gameforge has US version of Aion website ?

    Do they limit their service to EU only? I downloaded and played EU Aion to get a taste of 6.2 before it was released here, and did so without any VPNs or network wizardry. I live in California, and just downloaded and played.
  14. Stigma Enchantment Data (+11 stigmas, 164 stones used)

    Glad to see it's not just me. My own sampling size is much smaller, less than a dozen stones, but with 100% failures I gave up quickly. 100% failure at +9 doesn't seems like much of a boost. If that's the boost, what was the rate before? I'm already done trying for the duration of the event. I used to feel kinda guilty about my spending here. I don't want to be a wallet warrior ever, but I did buy a $15 pack pet, and felt like I should spend more. I used to play a ton, and loved the game. $15 doesn't even buy you a full movie in the theater after ticket and a soda...and I'd played Aion daily for years. I really felt like I should buy stuff just to support the game. I don't feel that guilt, or that desire, any more. At all.
