The wait is killing me.
Tell me bnsg, what is everyone doing while waiting for BnS to finally get its fat ass out of bed and released in the west?
Anything good on netflix? Anything worth playing on steam sales?
Even someone colorblind can tell the difference in shades. There's more than just white and black. If it's not white, they're brown at minimum. That's what tan does, regardless of how heavy it is.
Destroyers, KFMs, and Blademasters are usually the tanks. Mitigate damage and keep aggro on them while the DPS does their job. At higher levels though everyone can just burst the boss down fast enough if they know the patterns.
So I'm going to be leveling with my
girlfriendbut I also want to level something on the side. Which class is a better solo leveler, destroyer or blade master?
Reminder to make love to your favorite lyn so our future will be filled with genetically perfect animal people.
Considering how popular this game is in the East. I'd say there's no worry about the game having troubles staying afloat.
It's got Sex appeal, and established eSports on it's side.
don't die on me
>A site I usually review for vidya shit puts the if-not-already-noticed announcement for BnS release date
>Normies are overjoyed
>"OH MY GOD THIS IS THE BEST GAME EVER"
>"WHY CAN'T IT ARRIVE SOONER"
>"BEST GAMEPLAY EVER"
>I decide to post
>"The game's good and all that, but I honestly think
it'll be ruined by all those perverts from TERA"
>Get downvoted to oblivion
Does that mean that I'm wrong on this statement?
So I heard people saying this game is pay to win
>PvP THAT MATTERS is equalized
>PvE possible P2W(?)
So... you mean to tell that there are people complaining about other people reaching end game content faster than them? Am I suppose to be mad that I got carried through a hard dungeon by so P2W guy with the best gear which he purchase via NCoin? Is there some competitive PvE content that I don't know about that and there are Koreans PvE pros with sponsorship and such?
Even if the PvE is P2W why in the fuck does it matter? It does not affect me or you in any way.
See: Arena 1v1 and 3v3. I doubt anyone will 6v6 or w/e because most PvP players aren't going to be spending time in PvE content.
>Does that mean that I'm wrong on this statement?
No, you just posted it in the wrong place.
I don't agree entirely but you could be right too.
TERA panders to the pedophiles, if that's what you meant, then nah they won't come over here.
If you mean all the people who wanna fuck their adult characters, then yeah you might be right.
How does a game get killed by TERAfags when they are too busy playing TERA Online to give any fucks about a Blade & Soul? Last I checked TERA Online servers are still up and running.
Well, I'd personally LOVE to play BnS, given the gameplay, but people making too many waifus and overdoing it... Might kill my experience. Heck, I had to drop FFXIV because I could not handle the autists there (And if only they were just a few. IF ONLY; 80% OF THE FUCKING SERVER.)
Imagine some alien force taking over every world they cross and then going on to the next; As the aliens ravage a planet, until there's nothing left, to jump onto the next planet, so will the TERAfags that made their game shit with their autism come over to BnS to turn it into a disgusting place.
Ah, a spanish site. The community there is shit and full of ebin memes, but one would think they'd have some head.
I was wrong. 4chan, as insane as it sounds, is the most sane place to talk aboy vidya there is.
>Imagine some alien force taking over every world they cross and then going on to the next; As the aliens ravage a planet, until there's nothing left, to jump onto the next planet, so will the TERAfags that made their game shit with their autism come over to BnS to turn it into a disgusting place.
You just killed your own explanation in said explanation and doesn't even realize you killed it.
TERA Online still exist. Therefore, the "ravaging of the planet" called TERA hasn't ended yet. Which means that until TERA Online or in your words Planet TERA is no more, nothing but dust or matter, we won't be seeing any of these so-called Alien invaders anytime soon.
So no, Blade & Soul will not get killed by some TERA pedos invaders anytime soon.
I don't agree though, TERAfags will stay on their side because the Lyn are a lot less sexualized. I'm pretty sure all the costumes revealing on other races are fully covered on Lyns.
There's no reason for them to start a new game all over where they can't even have their succubus thong costumes.
is it at least cute aliens?
Biologically there's a few ways for only female species to exist.
Either they mate with males of very closely related species and their dominate genes take over and provide multiple X chromesomes. This method is insanely difficult to do and has not occured in nature, or another is asexual biological reproduction, which is essentially natural cloning, Which leads to a lack of diversity.
Basically Yun are possible, but highly impractical and after about 100 years or so of only female breeding they'd end up being very vulnerable to disease.
But reality doesn't apply.
Why are they only female?
Because Female only Lesbian race trope is really common in Eastern lores.
No, but I associate them with each other despite having played female characters in games before. I think it's fine jacking off to your character or whatever, but I don't want to be associated with that kind of person.
>tfw found a cute girl BnS streamer with a great ASMR voice
I miss being a little boy and having my older sisters ask me for kisses every time and I'd get to kiss their friends too when they were in the house
>tfw haven't finished building my new pc because of inflated cpu prices
>tfw wont have my new pc ready for BnS
>not getting ASMR tingles
lmao @ ur life m8
>being a puritan
lmao @ ur virginity m8
>tfw you already built an MMO optimized PC before getting rid of your previous MMO rig.
People need to really pay attention to what they're doing with shit.
Unless you're like starting from being homeless or a refugee or some shit where you have a legit excuse.
>lmao @ ur life m8
Have with with your placebos, faggot.
A least I don't have to lie to myself to actually experience fun things.
Not my fault you're a retard who can't understand the difference between real life and bullshit.
I bet you still believe in skywizards and praying don't you, you fucking weak-minded dipshit?
It's a fake made up effect of people listening to random noises and sounds over youtube videos.
It stands for Autonomous sensory meridian response.
It's just another placebo fad for retards who can't handle how boring their life is, just like trypophobia. They gotta make shit up to make themselves feel like they're special snow flakes.
The real world instances of "ASMR" actually happening is chills/goosebumps from music, but just like music its influnced by personal ideas which makes it just another piece of placebo bullshit.
People respond to it different, or not at all, because it's placebo.
It only works on those who believe in it, it doesn't happen to people who don't believe in it or don't think it happens because it's a placebo.
That's how placebos work.
There's a minor basis in music and audio about human reactions to certain types of noises because of how the ear is wired to the brain, because of a need in nature to respond to noises instinctively rather than judgmentally and consciously. But these have little relevance to the bullshit spewed by people who say they experience ASMR.
It's just like hypnosis, people who don't believe in hypnosis can't be hypnotized. It's a willfully self induced effect by preference.
Similar to how some people love certain types of music, and get chills form it, and how certain types of music evict certain types of feelings. But these aren't applicable to the "orgasmic state" bullshit that people try to say ASMR gives them.
People tried this crap with iDose and Binural beats years before ASMR became popular, and it was thrown off as bullshit because it was being talked about the same way ASMR is being talked about.
It's another bullshit placebo fad that people claim to help them cope with how boring their lives have become.
not me. i smoke weed to get angry. so dont. fuck. with. me.
Bragging about smoking weed makes you look like an idiot. To everyone who doesn't smoke weed and to most people who do.
It's like watching someone brag about drinking a lot. Oh boy are you fucking special, you can get shit faced all the time.
What are you lighting up your first bong ever or something?
Dude shut up.
I don't go onto 4chins and forums and brag about it everytime I get stoned.
I go and lay in my bed, turn on some EDM and just chill and enjoy the music.
Fuck off asshole, you make anyone who smokes weed look bad acting like that.
Anyone want to start a weed rp guild.
like we could get real high and pretend we're chinese wizards and kungfumen casting spells and shit it'd be *dope*
Thats cool this may be unrelated to you but I find people who pretend to be anime characters annoying. we should all join guilds with like minded individuals
we are... the weedians...
>these people most likely smoke weed, listen to placebo asmr videos, have vaginas and are in nfa
sorry, was smoking a j. what do you want to discuss?
I should call you a fucking idiot for not taking a moment to realize it
but I'm feeling lazy so fuck it
seriously tho it's some low quality obvious baiting going on right now, I don't even wanna bother
don't remember the last time i had a donut
i would rec this thing called a cronut.
it is fairly recent donut tech and its like a croissant donut and its amazing
stop calling everything bait not every post needs to be taken seriously you know. laugh at it if you find it funny or just ignore it
Are there any classes clearly better than others?
or even shit like summoner can own every other class? considering both players are equally geared and equally skilled....
Is there a particular class that excels at fighting more than 1 enemy at a time in pvp?
Not really. Since arena pvp is equalized, player skill plays a huge role and there is room to adapt to your opponent's strategy.
in open world pvp I've seen a since destroyer be a huge nuisance to a group of under-geared players in faction.
The race you choose is cosmetic, doesn't affect game play. Yes you can customize your skill tree at any time when not in combat. High rated players will have similar skill builds but will change their build depending on who they're facing 1v1.
>tfw watching BnS Anime because nothing else better todo
There's an animu of a korean game?
The only other one I know of is RO.
Force Master if you want to be good at pvp
Summoner if you want a pvp advantage over people at a low rating
Also Summoner if you want to play double dress-up.
So tl;dr Force Master or Summoner if you want to play double dress-up
Exclusive to each of them, it's sort of like extra levels and you get more skill points with each level.
It will take much more experience to get your Hongmoon levels than it will to get your regular levels.
I don't believe Hongmoon levels will be out on launch, I think we're supposed to get them sometime between launch and the level 50 patch.
Far as I know, there (was) one for Warlock and the recently Released Qi Master/Soul Fighter class in KR B&S, but those outfits were made available for all classes later on, or will be at some point.
Looks like I'm going to be rolling a blade dancer male Lyn.
Who here Lyn boys?
just one question, if there are no healers how are you supposed to stay alive in dungeons and pvp? are you supposed to just dodge everything or something? and in pvp 1 cc means you're dead since you can't regen during combat or what?
Or is there some lifesteal based class, or some class that has damage absorption shields?
You know who plays lyn boys?
G A Y N I G G A Z
Don't need to be black to be a gay ass nigga
Come on now, you going around playing Lyn Blade Danca with bitch ass sword going: HYEH HYEH HYEH HYEH HYEH HYEH
Please no. You can have instead.
No can do.
The spanking will come. Just you wait.
Also: You're adopted.
So Blade & Soul is another asia grinder like linage or does this game have actual endgame/content?
Not same person, but to correct this response: The ARENA PvP (1v1 / 3v3) is great.
OWPvP and the upcoming 6v6 capture point mode is going to hit and miss (mostly miss) because well, it's OWPvP and 6v6 isn't stat equalized.
POST your characters with their theme song.
owpvp may not be "competitive" to this last few years gaming standards with this moba shit and everything, but it's one of the most fun i've had in previous mmos, i really don't have anything against it
words cannot describe how much i fucking love this outfit...
What do you guys think of my Ice lyn? I am much cuter right? ^^
I dropped Tera for the sole purpose that everyone was a neckbeard loli, I guess BnS is going to be the same fucking thing. I truly despise any MMO that allows people to play as children or child lookalikes because the entire community is a bunch of fucking weirdos that play dress up.
That being said, I'm pretty fucking irritated that they won't just release the gunner already. none of the classes really feel too streamlined for me, the closest I can get is an assassin and I generally dislike playing glass cannons.
Haven't tried Force Master, maybe I should considering aside from the summoner to some degree it's the only other ranged class. Have they not released Warlock at all?
Lyn are nowhere near as sexualized as Elin in TERA, as 95% of their outfits are very modest, compared to all the Gons and Jins that basically have mostly slutgear to work with. Trust me, lyn players are going to be least of your worries in the community.
I really, really hope so.
>SIN is not necessary glass canon you can spec for durability and poke but why would you?
You basically answered your own question, why go poke and durability and not just go for broke since you're going to either destroy someone or get destroyed?
Stop shitting up MMOs.
Did you really play arena as SIN? Against destroyers and BM you can (and should for DES) spec pokes because your stealth is basically useless and it makes very long pokey games.
My question was more like, why would you keep the same spec for every single class/player you face? The point of the arena is to adapt and you can definitely have different playstyles even with the same class.
So I was watching a slut streamer and suddenly she received premium status, gifted by one of her pleb viewers.
So technically you could buy premium from other players with in game currency right? but is there a safe way to do it? or you can only hope the other guy isn't scamming you?
>Still seeing Character Creation
Got damn you guys are addicted to just the CC engine! Say goodbye to your marriage, your job, your waifu, your family, your kids, your life!
also pve is only grindy if you like to speedrun and like challenge
honestly this game is well designed, it caters to casuals, esportfags, erpautists and pvebabies.
>what is an inheritance
it won't last me forever, but honestly once I'm down to that point I'm gonna ask everyone I know if they would take me for the rest of my life, otherwise I'm considering begging or becoming an outlaw...
Fuck that. I don't have time to be waiting in queue.
I started on Mushin, but after getting stuck in queue for 40min - 2 hours I switch to Iksunan (or whatever) and will be staying there. There's no need to be on the same server as the PvPfags when we can all play together via Arena an/or form Dungeon Party via lobby.
I can 100% guarantee you that playing on Mushin during the first week of Blade & Soul's release is a bad idea due to the sheer amount of people trying to play on that server and of course the many day 1 issues that will need attention. It's a bad idea, a bad experience for newcomers trying to get into Blade & Soul. If you really want to play there do it after the 1st or 2nd week, especially if you're bringing friends. Not trying to shill Iksunan, but that's is the secondary server everyone uses and would be better for groups of players to use. If you have premium then ignore this. If you role solo ignore this. But if your friends don't have premium you should try another server. How can you get someone into the game if they can't even play it?
>Playing on NA
Are you really fucking casual? You must be into ERP so you don't care for gameplay. You don't care about that low ping feel, huh? Wrong game. Go play that anime cam face shit that's been the new trend as of late and make you some waifu.
THIS BLADE AND SOUL NIGGA, WE ALL BOUT THAT GAMEPLAY HERE.
How is the name reservation going to work? do we need to log into the game? or is it something on the website?
>you have the choice of being a waifu faggot or a fuccboi
it might be rude but i'm glad russians are ip banned from eu
there are not cute russian girls playing anyway
>tfw not getting
gangbangedby Dark Narutoin your vagooand Dark Sasukein your large bottomwhile they call you Dark Hinata.
ummmmmm they're all pretty good except maybe blade dancer but you can shit on everyone in pvp with them instead
some classes will get quite a bit better with lv50 and hongmoon levels and shit though
oh, and FUCK VICTOR ENTERTAINMENT for copyright striking the original.
hongmoon levels are basically just longer levels after 50 that give you more skillpoints, we may not have them right at release
they haven't said anything about 50 so nobody actually knows when it will be
I normally ignore this shit, but this popped into my head immediately.
PvPfags will be everywhere, mushin is just going to be the overcrowded server if it is the top of the list. Besides, you don't need to be able to kill other players to get faction stuff. A calmer server would be better overall so long as you can spark enough people into doing Blackwyrm and what's his fuck.
Personally, I think the server list should shuffle randomly.
>Carl Douglas - Kung Fu Fighting
You can save presets? I guess that's what I get for playing the beta blind
people keep sating they're just "extra levels"
but the real question, is how hard is it to get them really, because getting to lvl 50 is probably just questing, if Hongmoon levels are 50 or 100 extra levels, with no quests just daily shit, I imagine it's going to be a bitch. Imagine if you could only do 40 regular quests per day while leveling.
Good riddance. It was literally a general that consisted of two ERPing furfags trying to make it look like it was active. Guess that explains why NCsofts official shill moved onto this thread
just be yourself™
but more seriously pick what you find fun, with the level 50 patch all classes are viable in pvp
Well, assassin and bladedancer are the two classes I played in those CBTs and they both got stale pretty damn quick. What class do you guys find the most exciting to play?
summoner is definetly wrong in the difficulty rating on the char creation thinguie
They're not a combo class but do get much more micro intensive the more you level (which is good because you don't get fucked as bad from bad ping), Destroyer is the only simple class I'd say, and lyn blade isn't that hardcore either.
summoner may not be as mechanically intensive as some of the combo classes but there's still plenty of depth to them
i think most people who call them ez mode haven't actually played them that much, or got shit on by them in pvp
I was going to, but I wound up winning one of the master pack contests.
I'd say it is if you intend to play the game a lot. Though, if you intend to only really play PvP, probably not so much. (Or maybe there's more incentive just to hit level cap faster, I dunno)
I hum that song to myself often.
I CANT FUCKING WAIT FOR 12 MORE DAYS
NO VIDEO GAMES ARE FUN TO PLAY
>NO VIDEO GAMES ARE FUN TO PLAY
I know how this feels.
All these games installed and it's a drag to play any of them.
I'd play TW, but the ping is awful and I don't wanna mess with it until my PC parts come in.
Every class is good for PvP.
It's also probably the hardest to master with BM and FM.
Ironically enough, said three classes are slightly screwed by our patch being a 50+hm patch stuck at level 45, but getting good with them now will make you nearly a god when that content releases.
Well, my ping should be around 50ish. I'm the same guy that was saying assassin and blade dancer got stale quickly in the CBT, so I'm hoping the added difficulty will make me more engaged. Thanks for the replies doots.
>/bnsg/ guilds: NFA, Lyndicate, Take It Easy, H Scene, Wufu Clan
ok, so what's going to be the differences between these guilds? do some originate from different boards? will they all be in one server? are they still going to happen or will everyone just default to the NFA? I heard guilds in this game run small, so I'm just trying to have an idea of where to go to in case anything fills up fast
I wouldn't pick solely on difficulty.
Why did Sin get stale for you though?
Can only do it once every couple weeks.
I'd imagine if you do it often, you'll probably be disliked.
anon do you even know where you are?
they will fill up in the first week, and more random guilds will be created, a month after release half of them will die, and 2 months later at most 1 or 2 will survive.
Is the Take It Easy here actually from the /jp/ board or is it the same ERP haven former shell of what it used to be from Tera?
What is the point of these guilds, are they still going to happen? If so, there should be some clarification in the pastebin about who's who.
And I second this >>127294913
Where's the TFT? How do we have all these nobodies and no TFT
Thats because only the biggests 4chan autists play that game.
no idea how it got out nor was I in it, I just know this screenshot is posted in every Tera thread and Redo is the guild leader who I'm assuming would be the same leader in BNS's Take it Easy
I could be wrong though. still, that's TIE alright
people who erp probably won't play on windrest, but I plan to make a
pvpguild there and spam the thread with shitty pvpwebms
this general is so shit already and the game isnt even out yet
I disagree with your opinion.
>NFA Legends, its as simple as that desu senpai
>Take It Easy fuckboy erp guild
>Lyndicate NFA rejects and non-leged scum
>H Scene - D.O.A. guild for people who
couldn't erp their way into TIE
>Wufu Clan - normies who couldn't get into any of the above
>TFT i am literally LMAO @ anyone who thinks TFT has any staying power outside of a game that doesnt pander to paedophiles.
I want that footlong inside of me.
I don't think any more guilds need to be made really, there's already 5 up there and only 1 of them makes sense.
NFA seems to be main guild.
Then who is the inevitable overflow guild? It can't be Take It Easy because that's basically just a guild for erp drama. I don't think we should direct others there if they actually want to play the game and enjoy it.
Does Lyndicate have a leader? is that really their guild name, because I don't remember seeing them in beta
Should probably get these things sorted out somewhat soon'ish. Maybe within the next week or two so there's no clusterfuck during release. Remember, guilds in BnS arent very big
>spam the thread with shitty pvp webms
I've been doing that since alpha. Also we're going to be there as well.
ONE WEEK, FOUR DAYS, TWENTY HOURS, FIFTEEN MINUTES AND FOURTY-THREE SECONDS UNTIL
>That almost makes BM look fun
But BM is fun! What are you talking about?
>too bad it's a bronze lvl 20.
Blah, that's just a BM BnB, everyone gets hit by it. Level doesn't matter. And me knowing the spin to win shitters playstyle.
Indeed. Back I never realized how many serious real world issues the show had like child neglect, mugging and addictions.
It really was an incredibly bold show for its time.
Oh, and Hitler.
Well at least we're getting this:
Hopefully this will be the true conclusion to the series where Arnold travels to Africa to find out the fate of his parents.
>KFM is however said to be one of the more difficult classes if not the most.
I play KFM. Mind telling me what's so hard about this class?
Is this some MMO mindset? Oh, so, you're just saying that, compared to all the easy shit in this game, the least easy class is KFM. But overall the game is still piss easy when you compare it to a real technical game. Is that what you're saying or do you truly believe KFM is this class with tons of depth that hasn't been explored or something?
I don't understand this whole KFM is the hardest mindset from you MMO players. It's hilarious to be honest. I bet you guys brain would fucking explode if you tried understand or master something like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fpeqv4gPsUg
Personally. I feel like Nick's plans to appeal to the 90s Kids crowd isn't going to work out so well. These shows won't be able to get away with a lot of decent jokes and innuendos that only adults will get, and simply because the nostalgia factor is going to wear off quickly. Kudos to them for attempting, though.
They were kid actors, yes. The original voice of Arnold was in the news recently for being dubbed as a "hot grown up" now. Subjective.
But I'm pretty hopeful that they'll find close enough voices. I just want to see Helga finally win.
Generally when people say a class is "the most difficult" it's relative to the rest of the classes in the game they're talking about, though. I don't think it's incorrect to say KFM is one of the more intense classes in terms of shit you have to do in general. For a lot of people that translates to difficulty since most of us are trash at video games.
I don't think anyone's trying to claim BnS is some kind of super technical and difficult game compared to other genres. It's just a step above most other hotkey-based MMOs in some respects.
Guys do I go for the Master Pack or the one below it or the one below that one. I'm having a really tough time deciding what to do. Would it be better to just wait it out and buy the things I want in game and save money? Am I saving money by buying the packs? What do?
imo it depends either: you like the game and just want the headstart and some leveling convenience=> cheapest pack
OR you really like the game and want to erp and shit so you care about costumes=> most expensive pack
You get like 90$ worth of NCoin and 3 months of premium which is $45 if you assume standard sub price. That's already $135 right there, not factoring any of the other stuff you get. It's mostly a matter of if you're going to spend at least $90 worth of ncoin on the game at some point (which isn't hard considering all the costumes and stuff) and play it enough to get use out of 3 months of premium.
Every time I read things like
>ridiculous good deal
I think how trading 90$ into 10k ncoins is the same as trading 90$ into 2000 monopoly money.
Yeah what a great fucking deal.
Ingame prices are absolute shit tier.
>You get like 90$ worth of NCoin and 3 months of premium which is $45 if you assume standard sub price. That's already $135 right there, not factoring any of the other stuff you get.

No complaining, but did you copy paste my post from a previous thread?
I swear to god I wrote this exact post in a previous thread word for word.
So all yo're saving is 10 dollars? What can 10 dollars buy you in the game? Not to mention, the outfits prices aren't finalized yet. It would be hilarious if they bump the prices on outfits to Vindictus tier.
theres too many guns in an anime about an mmo with no gunner class.
You're neglecting the part where I said it's a deal "IF you're going to spend money on the game". If you don't feel spending money on the game is worth it and won't spend it anyway, then the pack isn't going to change your mind.
No, that's just the standard breakdown that plenty of other people have used elsewhere. I mean the value comparison is fairly obvious if you just sit down and look at everything that's in it.
It's more than 10 dollars since you also get Brilliant Viridian and Cinderlands Keys, 50 dragon pouches, character slots, and appearance change vouchers, all which would cost you $$ otherwise. Plus the outfits that you can only get with that pack. All of that shit together is a fair amount of extra money. Again, assuming you'd actually use it, which was my point from the start.
Yes, Hongmoon coins can be used to buy just about anything on the cash shop you could buy with NCoin.
You either get them through combining venture tokens with dragonstones (which you buy for 1 silver each), or by straight up buying them for gold on the currency exchange.
I love when fighting game faggots show up and are all "lol this is easy, why do you consider this hard?" like everyone plays fucking fighters.
They also tend to assume that when people say that something is 'harder' they think people are calling it truly difficult to do/play.
Especially funny that they don't even try to toss around their rank, meaning they're usually bronze/silver shits pretending to be pro
