    but how does that effect you? ok so you have to look at everyone else thats playing it, so? if it bugs you that they exist in the same game as you thats your own problem tbhh. your claim reminds me of many different real world examples that also dont add up either.

    at the end of the day, what else were yall expecting? they needed to make a second class for muse, and a clear option is an artist, what were yall expecting to take the spot? a brawler? a magic blader? 

    Like I said before, it does effect me as I have to watch this strange spray-paint hooligan class run around the game world.  

    I don't know why you bring up real world, but in the real world I live in a community with HoAs which means people can't paint their homes hot pink or open stores in the middle of the neighborhood.  These restrictions are in place to keep the community cohesive and home values high.

    Aion began with a very well-realized world, with excellent lore, and a cohesive theme.  Now it's losing it's identity and just becoming a hodge-podge of garbage, IMO.

    As was posted above, a traditional artist that fit in with the world would make more sense than the urban-outfitters spraypaint class.

    u rlly need to think about Aion IS NOT a medieval game. 

    Except it started as a high-fantasy game, with traditional high-fantasy classes.  Environments inspired by Greek/Roman mythology - and your fantasy knights/mages etc.  Towns were magically created or traditional small villages.

    Then the technology classes came - some don't feel they really belong at all either.  I didn't really think they did but whatever.

    This new class is just a bit too ridiculous for me, as is half the game world looking like a polar bear.  Also the very odd urban trailer where no such areas exist in game.

    It's fine that this doesn't bother people - great for them.

    i thought of a very similar idea a long time ago xD

     

    anyways why yall so pressed?? if you dont like the class then dont play it maybe? who cares if it looks silly, you have like 8 other non-silly classes to play as. 

    plus, its a PAINTER, how else do you think the skills are supposed to look? 

    of course its gonna be colorful, its a painter!!!

    The problem with arguments like this is that we can't prevent what others are doing.  It's a matter of whether you feel that a class like this belongs in the lore / game world, or even care.  A lot of us care about things like this and even if we don't play them, it won't prevent us from having to look at everyone who is playing them.

    Anyway thumbs down from me on this addition.


  4. I think if you are a new player, or have taken a long break - now is a great time to look into Aion. 

    The levelling catch-up is very quick, and most people had a complete reset on gear.  It's definitely doable to get into things now and not feel too far behind as the patch is new.

    And this is the saddest truth there is.

    I just hope they come back to PC.  I'd love to see a sequel.  I kind of want to know what is supposed to happen with the Tower and the lands supposedly drifting away.  

    I'd also love a really fresh Aion game that is deep like the present game had been.


  6. Sadly true. lineage 2 Revolution has earned over $1 Billion USD and has only been out less than a year.   Well, over a year in Korea but it’s a lot of money most games don’t earn.  

    On top of that, mobile games overall are easier to develop with simple “tapping” gameplay and limited game worlds and skills.  

    Low effort - high rewards.  


  7. Re: Lapis

    There are mobile games like Lineage 2: Revolution that use Unreal 4 engine.  It doesn’t have to be pc/console for that engine.  That game was created by Netmarble with NCSofts Lineage license. 

    Anyway one less game to keep on my radar.

    1) I find the defense of extortion, when the defenders are likewise being extorted to be puzzling.

    2) Where on earth did I ever mention "wrong", "stupid", or "evil"?!

     

    Maybe you should work for NC, I mean why is Cyan even employed if there are players like you who are ready to jump on the defense wagon? As for the other guy, that last reply doesn't warrant a response as as such none will be given, ad hominem trolling. Actually that last part applies to you,by modern standards the GIF is obviously a form of implied microaggression. Although I find it amusing more than anything that you think it's insulting. The irony is you're using a MAGA insult at me... when I'm a MAGA guy.

     

    What’s funny is that for me this extortion had the opposite effect.  I’m no longer playing Aion. 

    I am a launch player who spent THOUSANDS on this game. 

    I pre-ordered this game.   My pre order bonuses were taken from me and no longer available. 

    I paid a monthly sub for loyalty rewards.   Those were taken from me and not available to new characters.

    I paid Cash for the first expansion that came with a unique pet.  This was taken from me and is no longer available for new characters. 

    I bought that god awful Aion Magazine if anyone remembers that.   Rewards no longer available  

    I spent days of my life mastering alchemy for scrolls and pots.   NCSoft just removes the craft entirely.

    I spent thousands on gear as in the past you could use old gear for a long time in a new patch.  NCSoft invalidates gear immediately for the first time rendering it all useless.   Not just outdated and 2nd tier - but useless.

    Now Aion wants to take all my casting gear and scrolls away from me and make me buy stupid RNg transforms from their shop for the same effect.   Oh, and drain my resources by making me spend time or money to not look like a stuffed animal.

    Ive had enough.  My wallet is closed.   I wish you nothing but utter failure and the financials, when the initial wave of idiots rushing for Kaisenel transforms ends, will speak for themselves.

     


  9. Fantastic list of quality of life changes.  Funny in that these requests weren't really necessary until 6.2 since 6.2 made the game far less user-friendly in many QoL ways.

    I'd like to also request like others before me the return of at the very least an account warehouse where we can manage our inventory / kinah between characters.  This feature is something I very much appreciate as someone who enjoys alts or occasionally changing mains.

    The current system makes me feel as though I'm wasting time on other characters when I'm not on a main.

    You quoted my words, but I don't think you read them. Probably because you are too overwrought over this whole thing, which pretty much proves my point.

    Don't try to belittle me because I disagree with you over how annoying I find the new transform system vs. candies.  I did read your post - I understood it.  I dislike the change.  It doesn't make me "overwrought" because I dislike something.  White knight more?

    Totally understanding that some people will find the transforms objectionable if they don't have an option to make them invisible. And there -is- an option for that with those special scrolls. I believe those scrolls (and the others, actually) should be cheaper and more available in game.

    Just making the point that having the look of our characters altered to give us stat bonuses is not new. Yes. It was a smaller bonus before and for those of us wanting to be competitive, every little bit helped and we used them. We hated them, but we used them. It's true that the transforms are pretty much required for most everything now (other than standing around afk) and that players are pretty much forced to use them to get anything done.

    The hand wringing might be just a -tad- overblown since this really isn't a new concept and there is a way to make the transform invisible. 

    It is a new concept to either move at base movement speed, when 22% plus Speed Scroll was standard in the old system.  Similarly, you could have cast speed at 27% + Scroll was also standard without having to look like a cartoon animal.

    You seem like you love Aion and are very forgiving of whatever they decide to implement.  I am not.

    i always used candy in PvP in a long chase that extra 4% mov speed could determine if you are in range or not to land some kind of disable skill to get a kill, also sometimes each little point of stats counts i'm pretty sure my MA candy + MA food + illumishinel's Bow caused those confident MR clerics a lot of Headaches

    And I'm sure there are many more situations where the overall minor candy stats simply made no difference - the vast majority of encounters.


  13. 13 minutes ago, Aly-DN said:

    You say that but I don't know a single PvP group that didn't use them.

    Not saying I love the new transforms. Just think all the complaining about changing the look of our characters is over blown. That's all.

    Because some people value small stat increases  and min/max over anything else.  I spent a lot of $$$ on Aion so did fine without them because my appearance mattered to me.  I didn't get enjoyment looking like a candy transform so I was happy to sacrifice small, minor stats for that.  I've seen many people not use candies, even very high level pvpers who could kill me in one rotation without candies.

    To be fair, we have had candies forever where you couldn't see your character and those lasted an hour. The pain of being a creepy chihuahua for an hour! Ugh.

    Ofc, candies were less needed, but they did give you an edge in PvE and PvP and I always used them.

    Never used candies and did fine.  They weren't needed at all.  The small bonuses weren't worth looking stupid.  

    MassivelyOP revived it's "Wings Over Atreia" column and MJ (whose first major MMO love was Aion) has discussed why 6.2 isn't for her as a returning vet.  I feel similar about most of her points.

    Aion decided to decimate the change in an attempt at getting new players and streamlining the experience.  This may be good for some people but I've decided my time in Aion is in the past.

    You know Luna is mostly free, right? Luna instances give 1 daily and 1 weekly entry for free. And for the Workshop you get materials from those instances.

    You know what’s not free?  My limited free time. I don’t want to grind just to look how I looked since 2009.  

    This entire system is unforgivable and was designed to annoy people into the cash shop.  A player-friendly change would have been keeping speed on shoes and gloves, as was the case since blue crafted level 32 gear in 2009 and until 6.2, and maybe create all in one scrolls for magic and phys classes that combine a few of the scrolls into one click. 

    This is an absolute rubbish system and no former love of Aion will ever make me forgive it.  NC took something from us so vital as our characters appearance and is asking us to pay to get it back.  


  16. Agreed.

    No respect for credit card swipers who passively win PVP matches and then parade around like they are big shit.  They aren't.  

    Also no respect for people that grief.  It's fine to go kill a PVE quester once or twice but then just leave them alone if they aren't bothering you.

    No really need to rubbish on people just trying to enjoy themselves.
