Btw in korea when it was 6.2 were the same ench. rates as here.Patch 6.5 fix it only.

Also dont really expect much from 6.5 rates the boost is only on ancient gear, legendary is still bad only 3% boost and ultimate is exactly the same.

At least give us more stones!

from 2 months alrdy doing every siege with high contribution and i got only 1 ultimate stone wich btw failed at +14.

When Illusion was enchanting that does look like 5% BUT why is it 5%?  By the chart it should be at least 25% no?

Using ancient on +9 or higher legendary or ultimate gear have a 5% (1 in 20) success rate, and this will continue to be the same for 6.5 and 7.0.

There is major variance in RNG, you can have long stretches of failures and then a bunch of successes nearly back to back. Or even get that piece of gear to +12.

With the scarcity of legendary stones, don't use legendary stones when the gear is exactly +10. Then use legendary stones from +11 onwards.

It takes average of 373 ancient stones, OR 51 legendary stones, OR 26 ULTIMATE stones, to +15 ancient gear from +10. lol.

I would say my opinion of the patch is mixed. Overall I like the pvp that's been going on; however, I am not too much of a fan about the enchantment rates and all that. I wouldn't care as much if let's say everyone was in the same boat and struggling at the same time.

This compensation gear kind of broke the game. I am one who has some compensation gear, and I don't think it's fair that I can 1v4/5/6 while there are people out there just trying to catch up (it was funny the first week of the patch, but now, seeing some of the same names or completely new names due to people quitting, its not funny anymore and kind of sad). I understand compensating people for having put in the time before the patch, but come on. The gap is too wide for most to make up. It's like being stuck in a poverty cycle. I thought people played games to escape that, not be trapped in it again. Poverty squared?


Bored at work. Many more posts to come in other threads - Pika!

i tired to use ancient stones to get this legend bow to +11 sure i failed a lot like after every 50 stone i get +11 then use legend stone and it fail over and over i didnt enchant  for like 5 weeks saving all enchant stones .

i tired to use only legend stones that i saved them for 5 weeks and i bought many of them too but they all failed and i back to zero again like this 5 weeks i did nothing just wasted my time in farm this stones i dont mind to farm hard to get your gear but i mind that after 5 weeks all your effort was for nothing if i will get 1 ultimate every month ok thats the game cool it will take time to be geared so you have much things to do but by that rates u could take 4 months to get 1 ultimate lol that even if u didnt also fail on all this stones you saved them for 4 months lol

and in this ss the bow was +11 and i used only legend stones and they all failed and before this i it failed more but this was the last stones i had so i yolo them as ik even they are legend stones this bow will new be +15 because ncsoft dont use to get our gear now

I counted 39 legendary stones in a single item that continues at +10. This is only a sign that we are nearing the end. I come here, I try something on the forum in the hope that the NCS would do something, but I think in fact they want the end of this game. There is no other explanation. So all I can do is look for another MMO. I'm still studying the options, but one thing I'm sure of. I'm not interested in playing MMO on my phone, so AION2 will not be for me.

Yea, when your used to playing your games on a 50" widescreen, the thought of playing them on a phone is just not a happy one. I definitely agree.

All my ancient gear got to 12/13. I stopped there and had intended on going piece by piece afterwards to 15.

 

After over a month (give or take) nothing has been +15'd despite approaching it with an efficient plan. Thus I stopped logging. When your work, your planning, and most importantly your TIME are disregarded as part of the CORE element of progressing in the game there is a problem that should have been addressed instantaneously. Would love to speak to who tests this stuff and figures it looks good... certainly not a dev who's in it for the passion of gaming. I'd say at least give us a PTS like OW/Blizz but NA would probably go under at the cost of an additional server...... They don't seem to have trouble adding new servers we don't actually need though....

Aion has devolved into a shit tier mobile game basically. Even mobile games can run better than this RNG casino fest where everything was hiked up 500% (luna for example) or decreased 500% - say, 10 snowballs are now 2.

 

I play one of such mobile games on my phone, have thrown around 5 grand into the game and guess what, I think it's more worthwhile than throwing that 5 grand into Aion as it is. Said thousands of dollars later I'm basically unbeatable, even as new content is pushed out again and again. Aion? I recall throwing a grand into the tempering game during the Daeva set event - guess what, nothing. Nothing at all. Even if I had won the set, 6.2 would have invalidated everything (the calculation at the time was, I figured $1000 was worth the potential future proofing that set would provide). Aion is random, failures, RNG; even most mobile games out there give you guaranteed returns per dollar spent. It's a shame NC, you could have had my money but hey, if you insist on throwing RNG with overpriced shit instead of lots of low cost items that I'll buy many of - sucks to be you.

Based on their price hikes, I figure it's only a matter of time before Aion goes the CoH route and closes. The player base is getting smaller and smaller, 6.2 does not allow for new players to thrive at all due to the compensation gear nonsense. Naturally this also will eventually bore the old players too as they'll have no one to bully, no victims but equally geared players who - mind you, get boring as hell to fight (remember the 3.0 ghost towns?).

I DARE ANY of the white knights or any of NCWEST team to say that we have the "same" enchantment rates as Korea as of now.

Your lies are disgusting.

NCWEST nerfed all rewards, all events, all enchantment rates for the sake of milking the loyal player base through their cash shop.

NCWEST is the worst publisher to ever handle a MMO.

No one has said that the rates were the same. Everyone has said we had 6.0 rates when we needed 6.5 rates fast tracked to our region. If you take a close look at the date that that video was made on the PTS server and then the date 6.5 came out according to powerbook he was playing on the PTS server. 

NCwest is the second worst did you see archeage?

3rd pretty sure everyone knows they are getting milked but the ones getting milked are the ones able to 6v20 so they are actually having fun still so they do not mind :D.

...apparently you didn't play 6.2 anywhere else then because we have the korean enchant rates at least officially. It might feel like we have them -20% at all times because this is what Aion RNG has always been.

6.2 was not an update, it was a downgrade, a lame excuse for a patch. They destroyed 90% fo the game and now are trying to flush the economy hoping that people will like it. I will never understand the people behind aion's developing

Our enchant rates suck big time, there is no way you can upgrade an ancient to legendary.

Still dont see real reason why there will be less Events and close to 0 bug fixes and so hard to change prices in Gold Sand Shop? Isn't that obvious when we know that in NA is 0 dedicated AION staff member. At the moment they just milk out P2W ones and then wait till 90% quit to do next step ...................

They said that Cyan himself said that they do not want 6.2 to be event driven like 5.8 was. Not only they deleted 90% of the game, but they also want to remove the last good thing left in aion -> events.

Meanwhile every other region have nonstop events since 6.x patch started because see how players struggle and cant acquire certain items to make any progress. Or maybe NA is smarter than all other region?

I was going to write what Na is next to other regions but this will be a ban. I always thought GF is the worst publisher and by a big amount they still are, but NA really needs to get a grip with reality.

First, you may have noticed that we’ve slowed down our cadence of events. This is deliberate – with the release of the new content, we wanted to ensure players are able to spend time engaging with the core of Aion’s gameplay instead of hopping from event to event

...beat me with a stick! All content is finished in Wednesday after the reset, the rest of the week we are afking.

SO , basically all this game is now is, play for weeks to get stones for enchanting, try to enchant, fail, realize you just wasted a month of your life, go play other games that don't waste your time. Cool character creator though.

Pretty much yes, unless you are like me who I do not play other games and I am not a "gamer for life" I am kinda attached to an mmorg at any time and now I am an aion player since there is no other mmorg that I like. I am only waiting for 6.5 to come.

I wouldn't hold your breath for 6.5 The history of Aion is always take one step forward 2 steps back, the more content they put out, the worse the game gets. I Would hope they hire some high speed people who understand how to fix this game and make it good again. But that's wishful thinking. The moment they decided to delete maps was when they messed up. Even I can think of a better way, instead of deleting maps, make them relevant. Give people a reason to go there. Game does not feel like a living , breathing world anymore. It's just a box they cram everyone into, nothing interesting to see here, you're only going to have fun if you can get good enchants on your gear and hold your own in pvp, which is pretty much impossible. RNG , RNG, RNG, The next game company that makes a game  RNG based needs to be taken out back and taught a lesson. It's 2019, and we are sick of that RNG rubbish on these games, make an awesome game with an awesome concept, then you ruin it with RNG everywhere, way to go.

Yeah, this RNG is upsetting to say the least.

I really hope we get better enchantment rates very very soon, or else the game will be empty in a couple of weeks.
