  1. Invisible Ranger

    I didn't imply that. I just said it can't be constantly in use. The point here is.. play smarter. That can be taken as a rude thing to say, but it actually applies here. You know that people have seeds. You know they will be able to see you. So just play smarter. Don't buff up within chat range of your target. Or do buff but from the edge of your target's chat range and force them to use their seed, run off using mau and then come back and attack them before the cd is over. Hide isn't a get-out-jail-free card like it is for assassin, who actually risks a lot more than a ranger since they have to be up close and personal with their target. If you want sin skills then roll a sin. Don't complain because you aren't a sin.
  2. Invisible Ranger

    Why? Seeds of Detection have always been in the game. They do have a cd. It's not as if someone can have one up constantly. Don't buff up near your target and they won't even know to pop it.
  3. Genesys cristal for 7.0

    The T2 ancient is quite a bit better than the T1 ancient -and- it's tuneable.
  4. Nice Changes, Or So I thought...

    Well this is a PvPvE game and to provide the open world PvP, the designers need to entice players to be out in the open world. That's why they place some of the entrances to instances in areas that you have to run to. That's why they have the weekly artifact quests. That's why the crafting mats need to be farmed in PvP zones. This game isn't like GW2, where you can avoid PvP completely. You can do things to make yourself safer, but you won't ever be 100% safe.
  5. Stigma stones in 7.0...

    I thought I saw Hime say "a couple of weeks" for additions to what we are getting next week. Fingers crossed.

    What? Who said anything about treating anyone like a god? There isn't anything in my posts that would lead you to believe that. What the staff is, though, are the people that can effect change in the game that we are playing. In order to get the changes we need or want, we have to get our information to them. Gideon is our game producer (assistant.. associate.. whichever). When was the last time he posted? (I just searched.. he hasn't since we got these forums. Yikes.) When was the last time he even logged in? So it's pretty safe to assume that he relies on Cyan to report to him what happens here. Cyan's time on these forums has drastically decreased. Though he has posted a couple of times the last week, he had fallen into a pattern of only posting on Tuesdays after putting up the maint message. So we have a limited window to get our urgent needs across. Does that make sense? None of that is saying he or anyone else is a god. You 100% are not going to find any type of game where the GMs are not the conduit to getting information to the company that runs that game. Doesn't matter if it's an MMO or not. You have to reach one of them in order to be heard. Some companies do a better job of communicating and listening. The type of game doesn't matter.

    I understand that you post what you feel would make the game better, @Neleth-KT. I read your posts. I sometimes agree with you. I also have come to see that your threads are like a stream of consciousness novel. Anything that pops into your head is posted. Often that is interesting. And as Rakesh said, if these posts were labeled as speculation or theory crafting just for fun then there wouldn't be an issue. But if they are posted as actual needs, then you are covering up actual urgent needs and I think we can agree that there are many urgent needs. You dismissed Rakesh for just raging. I am just trying to get you to see her point.
  8. Stigma stones in 7.0...

    We didn't see it in the instance list in the stream. So perhaps it is one of those things that we will get in a couple of weeks?

    Rakesh is a cleric and one of the best in the game, Neleth. If anyone understands the plight of a heal cleric in our sieging mechanisms, it would be Rakesh. She is pointing out two things. First that your idea is full of holes and isn't really going to make anything better. Second that if we flood the forums with half-formed ideas that aren't addressing all of the urgent, real issues with the game, we distract the staff who have shown they have a very limited amount of time to give to Aion. So imagine Cyan looking through the forums on Tuesday after posting the maint message. All the threads asking for changes to transformations and easier access to transparent scrolls and current bugs have been pushed off the front page by me posting threads asking for a flood asking for the color blue to be transformed into the color green. He's going to skim, laugh, close the forums and report to Gideon that Aly is still on her crusade against the color blue and that everything else is fine with the game.
  10. Purplr/Pink (LUna) missions

    You can craft luna in the Workshop tab under Special Designs or you can buy it from the BCM with real money. The Luna Missions, however, give one free entry daily to the Underpath and one free entry weekly to the Factory. If you want to do more, you would need to buy the entries with louna.
  11. 7.0 Stream Screencaps

    This shows that we aren't getting two modes. Not sure it's the hard mode that we are going to be missing. I can't remember where I heard that the easier mode of PF was without dragon form and that the harder mode was what we have right now. Can anyone confirm or discount that?
  12. My Aion Calendar/Schedule + Altars doubt

    A lot of ego in a very small space. If nothing else, it's going to be entertaining!
  13. It wasn't mentioned and it isn't in the EU client, so the answer is probably no.
  14. Returning players need guidance

    Gameforge also requires you to have a sub to use the extra character slots, so that is hardly a reason to start over since the two publishers are doing the exact same thing. Having recently played EU Aion, I would say there are several points in NA Aion's favor. First, it is much easier to get transformation contracts in NA. EU can get 2 free from the BCM every few days where in NA they have a chance to drop from the final boss in all instances. Also, EU's transformations are server wide and not account wide. Meaning if you unlock a transform on any character on your account in NA, that transform will be available on every character on your account; while in EU that transform is only available on the characters on the same server. Second, luna is craftable in NA. It's true that EU's luna costs for things are much lower, but we basically get free luna just by afking luna dailies and weeklies. Lastly, EU is unplayable without a sub. It's true that you can buy their gold pack with kinah, in a patch where kinah is so much more difficult to come by that's not as helpful as it once was. In NA, you can 100% play the game without a sub and use every function of the game. Being perfectly honest, Gameforge does a much better job communicating with their players. I can perfectly understand why NA players are frustrated and may be considering a change. I guess my point is that the grass isn't as green as you think over there.
  15. 7.0 Stream Screencaps

    The bolded, I believe, is correct. We are getting our own, unique mixed up patch of interesting. lol.
  16. No. EU has to have a gold pack for the extra slots. So we are right in line with them now.
  17. Aion: Mark of the Vandal update livestream

    Probably not? They have to make money and they let the pay2win genie out of the bottle already. It would be rather difficult to put it back. We were told more events with better rewards.
  18. 7.0 Stream Screencaps

    All they said was 9pm server time. Though I believe they said no Dumaha siege yet. That that would be something added lately. Anyone can back me up on that?
  19. My Aion Calendar/Schedule + Altars doubt

    I thought it was twice a day as well and several of us asked specifically. Cyan looked up and said to clarify that altar sieges were -once- per day at 8pm server time. So if they made a mistake on the stream, when asked to correct that mistake they doubled down on that mistake. @Cyan.. we need an absolute answer on this, please.
  20. My Aion Calendar/Schedule + Altars doubt

    Lol. Got you. I did, too, and was one of the many asking them to clarify. But there you have it.. once a day.
  21. My Aion Calendar/Schedule + Altars doubt

    Yup. They even clarified. Once per day @8pm server time with fort sieges directly after @9pm server time.
  22. @Cyan - Transformation System

    No. On the stream Gideon specifically said that they are keeping transformation unlocks account wide and not going to server wide they way other regions did.
  23. Aion: Mark of the Vandal update livestream

    Gideon did fight some mobs, but he was missing more than half of his skills on his bar. I agree, though, it would be really fun to see a group of people that work at NCWest running a dungeon while they talk to us. Maybe just even running the new 3 man FM. Or PvPing around in the arena on different classes or all vandals just for fun.
  24. @Cyan - Transformation System

    It's not a must for everyone. I'm really happy that our transformations are staying account based rather than server based like EU has.
