Fuck this Mush server, you guys are fucking retarded faggots who lack foresight.
>log back in
>Queues likely on: Mushin, Poharan, and Inwan
So are we going on the BR server now.
I may RP but probably won't
Think we just need either a new server or a sub to hit up since everyone and their mother went Mushmush.
This queue time just keeps getting longer and longer, huh?
First for kawaii demonic shit.
ok how about screenies then from your favorite lyns you've seen around like >>128722317
just want a general idea of what people like. I already know what I want to make but this might widen my options more.
Dropped the picture
some associates are trying this game but I don't want to bother them with questions since they get really mad when I try to talk to them
how does it compare to other mmos? is it more of a wow style ability target based, the loosy goosy ness of wildstar, or totally freeform like vindictus?
>10 hours to hit 28
Hopefully tomorrow I won't keep getting stuck in quest bottlenecks with 10 other people who refuse to party up.
Maybe I'll get a couple viewers in my stream and pigs will fly too.
Just ran into a GON Destroyer in 1v1 Arena who seemed to have 0 cooldowns and was animation canceling (So it seemed to look).
I've never played a Destroyer before, is this legit or are there already arena bots?
the entire pvp is about animation canceling
and destroyers have no cooldowns on their main abilities if chained correctly.
there's a reason they're considered the easiest class (and no the ratings when making your character don't count).
all the butthurt trashcans that don't know the meta is changing your build based on what you're against
There's this neat skill called second wind.
Putting a point in it allows you to escape from stuns.
Putting a point into the right tree also dazes if you're so inclined.
You figure it out.

There's a couple I kind of like, but mostly gonna save my coin for valentine's day, where I'm 85% sure they'll have nurse outfits and other red things. Hopefully Wild Horse, so I can be a proper hobo.
>I'll be glad I never rolled a less populated server later on.
Why do people keep saying this? Blade and Soul is not some MMO where you just hangout in the newb town all damn day(unless you're with your guild). You will never make new friends in this game unless you PvP at Gold, Platinum.
Do you idiots not realize that 50% of the community will be in PvP Arena while the other 50% are in the dungeon lobby. Show me where I can find hundreds of mushin fags hanging out in one damn spot. Cross Servers in BnS literally kill the social interactions of the game.
There is no Velka (TERA) in BnS. There are no Space lobbies (PSO2) where everyone can chat, hook up and meet in BnS. There's no noobie town hangout. None of this shit exist and it will never exist outside of some small circle. People don't even wanna hangout in Black Desert Online - the biggest waifu simlator and all everyone does is player kill.
I think it was a glitch. It was a character I made in the CBT but dropped because her eyes kept going gonzo and shit
Was this always their dance.
I'm on Poh myself, the cerulean faction chat is pretty chill. I hear OCE players might be concentrating there, but I don't see them lasting long with the terrible ping.
Jiwan is apparently going to get all the BRs if that is an issue.
>How dare you recommend other servers to people not wanting to sit in queue all day long
Like anyone can even make a character on Mushin right now anyways.
so once i reach jadestone village i do the 5 gathering guild quests for the 5k exp, i get that but after that is there like a guide to wat profession i should have depending on my play style?
If they ever announce Mushin server transfers..... I'm out. Wont have to ask twice.
>people actually believe a hundred passive +stat points and a handful of actual interesting effects are good customization
PoEfaggots are literally the stupidest fuckers in video games
I was just poking fun, but really I agree that there is really not much point in picking the most populated server. No one really "hangs out" in the big cities other than to afk (and even then there is the cross server matching lobby to afk in). I guess you'd have an easier time with open world bosses, but why would you ever fight them again after you get your class's weapon? There is also the soul stones pvp area (in later patches) which require other players to team up with, but the thing about the bosses in that place is that only the top 10% highest dps will get drops so you don't actually want too many people competing.
tldr: Join Mushin now or regret it
The cowboy one is alright, but theres a lot of good options even without it. So, it's only worth it if you intend on using that outfit a lot.
>The Master Pack gives over 200 bucks in value at the 125 price tag.
lmao I hate this idea. The "value" of it is 125, or else they wouldn't sell it that way. The value of items typically decrease when spending more money, to add incentive to larger purchases.
That's incorrect, too. The value is what the purchaser is willing to spend. That's how the market works, and why it fluctuates on various goods.
I went crimson, but only because I like their outfits better. You can switch factions later on, if I understand correctly.
>lmao I hate this idea. The "value" of it is 125, or else they wouldn't sell it that way.
The ncoin and premium time alone is 126 bucks.
Everything else is bonus.
I could see them being 2500-3k ncoin later on.
Especially high noon, this shit is really detailed.
It could be a 50 buck value for all I care
because I got mine for free.
>mfw lightning draw unlocked
oh shit what the fuuuuuuuuuug
>this whole post
this is why I'm rolling Jiwan. I'd rather be in the RP server seeing people pretend to be immersed in the game world than in Mushin with server queues and no real benefits since crossserver pvp is a thing.

I feel like I've seen someone post a character looking just like this. is this fanart of that anons character or something? or was that anon just really good at copying this?

I am guessing it will be much harder without filling squares warnings... how is endgame?
>20k on mushin
Also, why are destroyers so underpopulated?
Where does it say what level you learn skills at? When I look at the skill tree for FM and sort it by level, it doesn't specifically tell me what level I obtain certain skills, only the level range
What are the west coast servers? I rolled Jiwan since Mushin was crowded af but I noticed some odd lag here and there. Might just be the overcrowding in the beginner areas, but it's still making KFM difficult to play
was pretty hyped about this game about a year ago im happy its out thinking of buying it what server are we on? im assuming servers are gettign fucked cus day one?

Not really. Both suck in their own way, but Cerulean Order tends to have better players.
Cerulean has helpful people, but also white knights and good guy faggots
Crimson on the other hand is full of kids, Edgelord faggots, and autismal toughguy "Original Character DO NOT STEAL"
That was the first thing I did was try to bind it.
Yep. In the Discord too. For another hour or so anyway
>Only joined crimson so I can get my favorite set, the master rank clothing
>faction is full of annoying faggots and spammers
I hope i can find a decent clan to hang with at this rate
What are some of the good money making profession combos? Getting into B&S kinda late and I've got no idea what's profitable at end game.
I'd preferable like to not rely on a 5th profession and just profit from the 4 the game allows you. IE: Not take up a 3rd gathering profession or have to buy things for my professions from the auction house.
Thanks in advance.
I can head into the Discord for B&S.
I'm just usually in the one you probably know me from
Jiwan is probably gonna get hit hard with more folks soon, but for now, I don't see why you shouldn't hop on.
No idea about Poharan.
I rigged your poll to Mushin for a reason. Stay the hell off Jiwan if you don't hallucinate vividly to text.
Don't think I'm in that one.
Also, anybody know how much better Destroyer gets? I played it briefly in CBT and didn't really like it. Granted, by briefly, I mean level 5
Reminder that Jiwan is the 2nd official /vg/ server and the one you should be picking to play with all your bros!
You guys had better change your ways quick.
'else you're gonna have a bad time.
Tell what GPK its in, and I'll do it.
They established earlier that the overflow was going to be on old man cho.
First met you on this board when you posted a webm like this, the little moving eyes always look so adorable.
Were you going to play your baby bunny or did you end up going with your old man character?
so i must play a loli of course thats understandable. so which class is better in pvp? Summoner, Force Master, Blade Dancer. i ask because pve so far from what i could tell with original game was pretty basic standard grindy Korean shit.
>having this much free time
Careful anon, you might exhaust yourself
Both. I'm an altoholic.
Jiwan is full of BRs and RP. You really want to roll on the literal cancer server?
I was considering it for a while, when I saw that Yun's version was white.
I still remember i fap 2 times with my character's tight on creation screen.
Any new creation option they added on the NA version? I played on the TW for a while but the timezone difference and ping is what kill the game for me
I would really be forever grateful if you ever got around to doing it. White would look so much better than the pink.
And speaking of mods, does NCsoft actually know if you're using mods? I saw some forum posts by the mods on dojo saying that they'll immediatly know if you mod the game, but how would they even know, unless you go around telling everyone like a retard?
Your server is about to get destroyed like a Golden Corral bathroom on "Chipped Beef and Toast" night come Tuesday when that horde of poorfag BRs come HUEHUEHUEing into "Brazil's OFFICIAL server". Good fucking luck, m80
>tfw you actually spent your NCoin on something you didn't really want
Pay day's next week, boys.
Time for more regret.
>mfw i have no idea where I want to go, Roleplayers are adored but fucking BRs are there.
>NFA on Mushin, good luck with that fucking tokyo level of traffic
WHY IS MY CHARACTER ALWAYS TRYING TO SMILE? I DON'T WANT MY CHARACTER TO SMILE, SHE'S SUPPOSED TO BE DEADPAN. EVERY FEW SECONDS HER LIPS GO FROM A LOOK OF UNAMUSEMENT TO A SHIT EATING GRIN.
WHY WOULD THEY DO THAT??? IF I MADE HER FACE TO BE SERIOUS, WHY IS IT FIXATING INTO A SMILE? I DON'T WANT TO USE MY APPEARANCE COUPON ALREADY, BUT I ONLY NOW NOTICED SINCE I JUST ZOOMED THE CAMERA ONTO HER, AND I'VE PLAYED ALL DAY.
Lemme try. I'm in CA about to head to bed
Reminder that if you want RP you should join the only RP server that is Jiwan, good luck finding RP in any other server.
There will most likely be a guild there soon enough, get on the discord to discuss the names of the guild and what kind of RP we'll work on (((apart from ERP of course ;))))
What's the rate for cash shop shit, I can't really gauge the conversion of Real Life Dollars vs. Weeaboo Points as far as how many slutty outfits $10 would buy me, or if it would only get one
>know that if I go to sleep, I probably wont be back on for another 5 or 6 hours
>everyone will be way ahead of me
Fuck it, if I try to stay up I'll feel like shit tomorrow. Is there an afk timer or can I just stay logged in?
I still have NCoin left.
And I'm just gonna coast and enjoy the game. In no rush
I'd be down to help make a clan for the RP'ers around here, if you guys wanted.
I joined a normie one I found in shout chat to shoot the shit, they're a nice bunch of guys so I'll add em and we can start this up.
Games been great fun, don't regret my purchase. Now I just gota work on the character so I can be an Underground Cerulean yakuza boss with a heart of gold.
>Hong moon +100 xp and huge health boost x5 pack
Ya sorry no. People still use the fuck out of them in all versions of BNS. It's what the highest levels right now are using to hit max and for alts it won't stop.
As a side note, can anyone give me some tips on PvP against certain classes? I've learned a lot from the ~30 or so matches I did today, but I still feel like Blade Dancers and Summoners are a pain in the ass. I made it to about 1500 ranking and I'm only level 24 against levels 30-35's so I'm at a skill advantage, but it's great fun.
Summoners I was told to burst down their pet, but I never feel like I can outdo their healing unless I forego all defensive skills for offense.
Blade Dancers just flip around and I honestly have no clue what they're doing. They seem to counter me out of nowhere.
I was having trouble with Assassins until a friend told me their teleportation stun is actually a counter, and now they're a lot easier.
There isn't really an established lore as far as I know. Its a mythical china-esque era that has flamethrowers and shit. If you want completely lore friendly, just use a Chinese name gen.
>every MMO has an RP specific server to contain you homes
>IT'S CALLED A MASSIVELY MULTI-PLAYER ONLINE *ROLE PLAYING* GAME HURRR
Only in special containment servers for you little tards.
It's a roleplaying game.
Are playing it?
That's my point. By simply playing the game you're already playing a role. You're the main character in the game's story. To take it further and play house with anon takes a special kind of artists that I will forever berate. This is a PVP and mechanics focused game anyway. There's not a lot you can do to RP like in other MMO so fuck off to your containment server while the big boys gain the big scores on the only important server, the PVP one.
Goddamn RPing furry faggot pedo lovers.
>not doing both
>telling people how to play
>getting mad when they're not playing the way you want to
>the PvP server
Except the only PvP that matters is cross-server and there's no designated PvP server, because otherwise you'd be waiting 7 hours to get a few matches in, sub or not.
And hmm which server has the most PVP focused people and will constantly wreck the others in score? The BR RP server? Toppest kek.
The only one that matters is the PVP focused one.
You're free to be a gay little RPer and Im free to call you names for it. Welcome to freedom.
Play the way you want to. It's not gonna do anything to give you any advantages in this game, though
You're actually a moron. It doesn't matter which server you're from when all PvP comes to the exact same place. You'd have a point if it was like Tera where doing open world PvP and duels was faster, and where servers were designated as PvP, PvE or RP.
Here, they're all PvP, it's just a case of whether you want queue times and whether your guild was autistic enough to go for the server with queue times. If I practice for 500 matches and you practice for 500 matches, it doesn't matter which server we're from, because I can guarantee you that any non-arena PvP practice you have didn't teach you anything, and you're fighting PvPers from literally every server as your only means of proper practice.
>the most PVP focused people
What is that even so supposed to imply? Having the most players there just means you'll also (objectively speaking due to population sizes) have the most shitty players, too.
>Underground Cerulean yakuza boss with a heart of gold
I can get behind that. Do you want a ditzy
poison dart frog yokaiGONguro bimbo on your arm/as an underling?
Okay except so what? You're still gonna have 90% of the scoreboard filled with players from Mushin. That's what I'm saying. Who gives a shit if there's 4 people from the RP server and 6 from the others on the roster? What matters is learnin how players around you play so you can counter them. If you're surrounded by RPer or PVEers constantly, your only interaction with other PVPers will be from other servers. And since I've been spending my time fighting and watching them in arena and open world, I have a significant advantage over you.
>You're still gonna have 90% of the scoreboard filled with players from Mushin.
Even if that's the case, do you think that shit matters? There is cross-server interaction in the arena lobby and people are already mingling outside of the game.
Your server means absolute shit for your PvP skill.
That actually sounds like a really interesting character, you should totally go for it. Just don't swallow the darts.
It'll probably have ERP just because it's a thing now. Hell, probably half of NFA will do it/be roped into it. If you want consistent RP and varied partners for whatever you're looking for though, you'd probably want to go to Jiwan.
>tfw lookin old
There will be e/rp, but you sound like you're still looking to lean towards Jiwan more.
Yeah? Prem really isn't all that fantastic. The only thing I got it for right now was login queues.
90% of the bottom of the leaderboard will also be from Mushin. It's quantity over quality with that logic you moron.
Once again, it doesn't matter what server you're from when it comes to PvP. All talking about PvP outside of arena will do is get into autistic theorycrafting. You learn from experience, and you'll still only be experiencing people from any server. Jesus you're fucking retarded.
Besides, I'll love to see you get in more practice than I will if you're spending hours in queue every day and I'm logging in and getting right to it. I'm not even on an RP server, I'm just not Mushin because I'm not a moron. I already got all hurr durr openworld bullshit experience from beta. I just get more time to refine my shit
By the way, watching people from open world proves literally nothing other than how quickly you can land your CCing dash skill into guaranteed kill oneshot combo, or you're playing KFM and don't get to win against anyone in OWPvP. Watching people from arena is still literally anyone wants to dedicate themselves to PvP, not just the people from your server. Holy shit kill yourself. Mushin isn't the special snowflake PvP server. It's just the server from autists who think that having a lot of people means any of them will be good.
Character customization is part of that process. Do you just select a default character and get into the game for its gameplay?
I was pissed that my character keeps smiling when I don't want it to. It ruins the customization I put into it. I still act like myself when typing to others, just don't like that the character creation is ruined by "needs to have a cute smile" facial animations.
>>128743784 here, if no one else makes one by tomorrow I'll toss one up. I'm just not sure how many players are actually going to be around.
Is this really necessary? People will be spread all around, they'll go where they want. Yeah, Mushin will have a higher quantity of skilled players because its more populated, but that doesn't mean they're any better than the players from other servers. They're all still going to grow up and get good in the same Arena environment.
>Yeah? Prem really isn't all that fantastic. The only thing I got it for right now was login queues.
Okay, just checking since these eastern MMOs always try to nickle and dime you
>By the way, watching people from open world proves literally nothing other than how quickly you can land your CCing dash skill into guaranteed kill oneshot combo
This. OWPvP is all about ganking and having a gear/level advantage.
I've lost track of how many times I've watched two dudes fighting, one is winning, and the other suddenly has 2-3 higher level people show up to help him.
100% for sure the only OWPvP you'll see in a month is high level gankers attacking lowbies and people being "lel so fanny" for annoying people trying to do their dailies.
Okay, this ERP crap needs to stop. It's beginning to get unbearable to play with you guys. The erp guys are starting to become a problem. No, I don't mean "waaah, they're annoying". No, they're becoming so obnoxious that it's forcing people away. I saw this in FFXIV (Ultros) and even back (To a much lesser extent) on Tera's launch.
The issue here is that they (More often than not) act no better or even worse that the worst of pubbies. Cmon guys, if you wanna do that stuff, do it in whispers etc and keep the talk off the board. The board's gone to shit (In before it already was shit) due to this (and other reasons).
It may just be me, but it seems this "ERP Culture" is spreading and becoming more prevalent the more time goes on. This is a problem, it needs to be contained and or stopped.
Yep agreed. People really like give OWPvP more credit than its actually worth, and then when it comes down to it, it ends up getting ignored and abandoned weeks or months down the line because of how shallow it really is. Youmukon himself even said during his reports from the closed betas, most players were spending most of their time actively avoiding OWPvP rather than engaging in it.
This isn't an MMORPG like WoW or TERA where you have to "live" on the server of your choice. If you want to play on Mushin because you have friends there or something, that's great and all, but I wish all the chucklefucks that keep putting Mushin on a pedestal as if it's THE server you need to be on if you want to be "good" at the game would get it through their heads that in terms of skill and gear progression, the server you play on doesn't fucking matter because 90% of your time is going to be spent queuing up for the Arena, Dungeon Finder or trying to rip other players off on the Auction House which is all cross server per region.
>Expecting ERPers to be discreet and not flaunt their degeneracy about.
>You're a big girl
I agree with this. It seems that lately we're becoming almost as bad as them.
On another note, people are having a hard time understanding the difference between RP and ERP and are attempting to defend their sexual roleplay by informing others that this is an "RPG"
Those who have played through the beta. Do you recommend I buy the founder's pack or wait 3 days?
Obviously I can wait but are the prenium points bundled with it worth anything?
Don't knock the palmtree hair, it's got hilariously fun physics.
>tfw (E)RPfags come to this game even though the game isn't even strong on lore, has a pretty small character limit per message, and isn't truly open world
>mfw they come to this game with top tier combat, built around balanced 1v1 arena pvp with some dungeons to the side to live whatever fantasy they feel like living or they just horny kids who can't stop touching themselves
Look, I get it, you like living that fantasy you could never and will probably never live, you get your kicks from it, or you're a horny slut who loves sex. This thread doesn't need to know about your adventures, it doesn't care. It's not a place to hook up for some epic sick ERP or for posting your fucking encyclopedia tier logs.
Just keep it to yourselves please, shitpost in any other way, just don't be pretend fags.
If you are buying anything, buy the master's pack because it's quite literally the only good deal. Also it's complicated giving you any advice regarding the wait, if you wait now, release on the 19th will be even more of a clusterfuck. If you cave in and get access now be sure to get premium, you'll be able to play these 2 days left and get a feel for the game but If you aren't going to go fast and aim for the level cap and want to check out the story and take your own time learning the game and your class then wait for release and past the fuckery that it will be.
Games dont really need too much lore for RP. Now, I may not have RP'd before, but I'm assuming in the case of BnS it would go something like....
Hi I'm (You), I'm from (whatever shitty village) and I heard about the attack on the hongmongs so I'm helping by (insert thing like I don't know fishing or some shit) I was raised by (BACKSTORYYY) but now I'm all alone in this cold dark world, please fuck my sweet sweet nectarous shouta bootyasshole from the back about like 6 to 38 times thanks
First one found at level 14 also saw Rei Skywalker the Lyn Blade Dancer
>If you are buying anything, buy the master's pack because it's quite literally the only good deal.
I see. thanks tho its too expansive for me.
But what are the prenium points worth otherwise?
>ping fucking jumps from 30 to 200 on eu servers
They increase your premium membership rank as stated here https://support.bladeandsoul.com/hc/en-us/articles/206070806-What-Are-Premium-Points-
But it seems retarded because as shown here http://www.bladeandsoul.com/en/news/premium-membership/ there is no rank past 1, at least as of yet.
Maybe somebody else knows more?
Thanks. I guess I'll pick the starter if my friends want to start this week end then.
I hope the game does encourage party play mechanics like old WoW and isn't balanced solely toward 1vs1 PvP like the other modern crap.
>like the other modern crap
What? Games balanced for 1v1 are pretty rare.
>encourage party play mechanics like old WoW
It does but you get rewarded in a party for individual skill.
>It does but you get rewarded in a party for individual skill.
Which is exactly the opposite of party mechanics.
>What? Games balanced for 1v1 are pretty rare.
Modern MMOs are balanced with solo/uncoordinated plays in mind so each class is self sufficient. Meaning each class must have the exact same combat capacity on their own. Because modern players can't be assed to think things through and build long terms partnership with other players. Meaning there's no teamplay because everyone is better off doing their own thing in a fight.
In vanilla WoW If you tried going solo with half the classes or tag along with selfish randoms for any instances you were generally fucked.
Maybe you should play the game first before opening your mouth, the only pvp that matters and is fair (no gear/levels/hongmoon coming into play) is in arena which is cross server, it doesn't matter if someone is on a completely dead server compared to someone on Mushin they will have an even playing ground, unless you think getting the jump first on people dumb enough to wear their doboks will teach you anything.
And of course the inevitable giant zerg balls and channel hopping.
World pvp is terrible in this game and serves no purpose to anyone who is good or cares about pvp in the first place.
>Which is exactly the opposite of party mechanics.
No you can have both, you HAVE to synchronize your shit in this game so you cannot have random people spamming random shit but you still have ways to play better than another dude playing the same class.
