Just do whatever you did to find that first apparent 'friend' and do it again. This time, make sure you're the one doing the cucking and in charge. Don't let yourself get attached until they've proven they can commit to someone they apparently consider a 'friend'.
How current is this graph?
Didn't expect FM to be so popular with this type of combat.
Are you gonna take responsibility anon?
>tfw want to play based Yun but don't want to play as overcrowded class or ping-reliant class.
welp, looks like I'm a race traitor now. I'm gonna be the biggest blackest Gon on the server.
also mods will fix it
>outside of pvp
>race restricted classes
same as literally every other mmo ever
>cancerous lolifur race
why aren't you playing a real esport like
Yeah, this is the approach I'll probably take. Mind you, I wasn't actually looking for friends when it happened, it just.. did. I guess I'll just be harder to phase now.
Or try to be, anyway.
>good as long as destroyers, lbm and summoners are as they are
You make me raff anon
75%+ of gold and above are destroyer or summoner, 15% LBM and then the rest are the other three.
Balance is fucking shot to shit with summoner and destroyer being utterly godly in comparison.
>it'll get better with the 50 patch!
Literally zero reason for it not to be out on release. Zero.
>Tfw everything in this game is made for females or male Lynn.
I think it's nowhere near on the level as TERA in terms of race-specific varieties. It was always just Females of all races get 1 design stretched and skewed to fit each one's shape roughly + special Elin version. On one or two rare occasions, the males would get one too.
B&S has plenty for everyone, and even fanservice for males.
Yun and then buddy me so that I can enjoy the aesthetics of a Yun while playing a male Jin that looks like me for self insert purposes.
Shut up! I'm not insecure, you're insecure!
Ah, home from work. Thank you Soha for never having log in issues.
>Giving any pre-purchase money to a a bunch of people like this
From what I've seen and heard, Crimson is more often unorganized and just 'they're red so I'm gonna be them cuz red is cool' folk, but I don't think that goes for every server. FM is good and PvE can be pretty easy since you're ranged, but you're the most literal definition of a glass cannon.
I'm pretty sure, yes. NCsoft doesn't like tampering in the slightest, so I don't think you can get away with nude mods or the like easily, if at all.
your first mistake was thinking there's anyone on the internet who isn't a cunt
your second was trusting someone, which is where all bullshit tends to come from
your third is being a faggot
Are you from maplestory?
If you want traps + long range weapons + nets + sniping, go with Caitlyn.
If you want an actual bow and thousands of arrows, go with Varus
If you want a frost archer chick that looks hot, go with Ashe.
what server are you, recently-abandoned-anon? IGN?
I'm on Iksanun since it's where I played during beta (and no queue times/still a decent community size), but I'm not particularly looking to give my name out. It sucks to be led on, but pity friends aren't what I'm looking for since I've already got a few proper ones on here. I think.
How do you guys keep from getting distracted while leveling.
Mid blink yeah! Master screenshot taker.
Time to smash the patriarchy.
Why is it sometimes WTFast works fine, reduces my ping and makes SIN playable. Then other times, for apparently no reason it wont let me connect past the character screen. Its bloody frustrating man, anyone got word on a fix or work around or something that will end this frustration.
I'm a faggot so the fact that my character is waifu-tier to people doesn't phase me in the slightest. It also helps that 95% of peoples creations look like utter trash.
It'd be another story if I was playing my shotalyn though
>Made it to 45 last night
>So tired I just rolled over and fell asleep
>Wake up game still
>mfw not having wait in queue
Ayyy didn't a few of you faggots claim NCSoft put in an afk kicker? Fucking liars.
The compression turned to shit. Sorry.
They force you to be fucking retarded in the story.
You're forced to let the bamboo guard spy go multiple times. It bites you in the ass.
You're forced you to let fucking pinku dress gook run free when it is obvious she is a manipulating harpy in it for the money and not innocent at all.
LET ME JUST KILL THESE FUCKS
Okay, I can't decide which I am making first tomorrow when the game officially launches so I'm rolling it:
>0-4 Lyn Blade Dancer
>5-9 Gon Destroyer
A couple things.
2. Progress the old man cho quest behind you, that's very important he's getting too old don't keep him waiting.
3. Why do so many of you pick that blanca from street fighter looking spike-puffy hair?? just wondering, thanks
>Keep getting caught up with things in rl
>Still not cap yet
Pretty envious of the guys who are already cap to be honest
Lv 33 almost 34 and I'm in the Potters Guild zone just after the Desert.
But you're missing the best part.
I love watching the tail come and go.
I'm a faggot with a shotalyn too, but I have to say I dig the rockabilly vibe your chick has going on.
By streaming and therefore keeping myself from zooming in on my character every ten minutes.
Play a destroyer or LBM and spin to win. Be mindful of their counter, try not to tab unless you desperately need to else they'll likely 100 to 0 you in a cc chain.
Also git gud.
Rate please on facial proportions.
That's not happening, I'd rather not get banned for self-advertising.
You're more than welcome to dig through the no viewer pool, but I'm not even streaming right now anyways.
Get another angle shot, it feels like there's something strange about the nose.
>Hey guys I'm streaming, but no, don't come watch my stream!
Avatarfags seeking attention everyone.
Green is a no go? I am just looking for facial proportions opinions.
Also what are /vg/'s acceptable hair and skin colors?
I know by now that dark skin people are not on that list. Must be because of the upcoming racewar.
This way I don't need to spent 1000 ncoins everytime to change it in the future. Could have been a extra premium.
>Mention something in context
>Avoid showing stream to avoid getting attention
>Somehow seeking attention for this
I don't understand.
Pay for convenience.
The materials you can buy aren't even worth much to sell and you're limited to one buy of the 10x and 1x stack per day (and if you're crafting, you'll need em anyways).
All of your gons are monstrosities.
A sweet tooth subsequently followed by type 2 diabetes and kidney dialysis.
this game has any good pve and pvp content or just a waifu simulator?
does it feel like an actual living virtual world or is it lifeless lobby based solo game like all modern themeparks?
Huh, it must be the lighting on the skin color that made it seem off.
Only thing I can really tell is that the chin seems slightly long.
PvE has some good content, though there's only one real hard mode dungeon at the moment. Plenty of stuff that should be coming over the next 8-10 months though.
PvP is far and above the biggest draw to the game though. If you're not mainly a PvPer or at least PvX, this really isn't a game for you.
Can you show me examples of good lyn boys that are tall but don't look tacky and gay as fuck. Just a little bit gay....
I can't decide if I want to try and make one I like or just stick with my generic af yun, heeelllppppp.
There's no PvE content at all. This game was built around PvP and more precisely 1v1 combat. Even 5v5 just means you tag people in to take your place in a fight.
PvE content is really fucking small even in Korea, basically they focused on PvP, latency, and balancing for PvP and then through a Tower of Babylon Single-Player PvE tower you can go through as a one-off to shut up PvE players.
There are no raids or anything of the sort. Also the story that came from Korea/China/Russia has been completely re-written to appeal to the Western Audience, things have been censored, edited or completely removed from the story so you can't even at least skim the story if you're barely interested because there's nothing now.
>before going to sleep last night, buy premium earthenware shit to make cinderlands transformation stones
>spent 50s on them, was gonna make a profit since transformation stones were going for 35s a piece and you get 5
>check stone price
>dropped down to 12s a piece
>only making 60s
>no profit because I also bought the silicate for them
fucking hell, i hate this crafting system
>flase claims: the post
>people bitching about LBMs, etc.
>mfw I outplay people in open world on a daily basis
Really, you niggers need to play some funner classes like assassins. This shit is too fucking easy to fuck people with. Can swap places with them over ledges and shit and watch them fall and take half their health in damage before I dash to them and fucking melt them before they can even react.
There's plenty of dungeons, and you WILL need to do them if you want the best weapons, especially once we get some of the insanely powerful ones that aren't just Hongmoon upgrades (and cost around 5k gold hue).
The dragon in Misty might as well be a raid boss right now.
Why are Kung Fu Masters literally everywhere? It's about half of what I see.
They're pretty tricky and require good timing and ping, feel like it's not a good choice for all these people.
What is actually the point in getting weapons though? Since the game is PvP oriented and I read that your weapon makes no difference to damage in pvp, surely once you're max level it doesn't matter?
Genuine question I know very little about this game.
Aren't all heads eggshape?
Are you the circle type?
I thought that might be the case, I asked because it's what I read. I read that even if your weapon is broken, it will do the same, regardless of if it's your training weapon or some upgraded powerful shit.
I'm not really sure what you're saying, this is the only mmo I've ever played with uninstanced pvp. I know there's open world pvp cus I fought a few people, how does that relate to what I asked?
So it's worth upgrading my weapon if I wanna shit all over people in open world. Whereas arena will always be balanced regardless of gear/weapon/etc?
Does gear have ANY effect in arena? Or just stats, or nothing at all? Sorry no more questions
Typical head shape.
See how it's not egg-shaped?
Tall, tacky and gay looking here. Tall lyn life's pretty good, I'm at max height myself (stood next to a random normal height lyn to show the difference).
I say at least give it a try.
Why can't Jins be Force Masters? I feel like my character fits FM better than Assassin.
So uhh... you know..
Why can't I put this outfit in my wardrobe?
It's nearly impossible to get a face to that shape in this current game creator without damaging the art style made by Team Bloodlust. The game would need far more slider options for that.
Maybe Gon is a better option.
why are all the avatar fags not 45 yet?
Anyone else have a problem where their quests started going grey around 40 and you're leveling super slow now? I don't really want to skip them but a single level now is taking what it took me to get like 4 levels previously
Do flamethrowers count?
>tfw enjoy playing a male Jin and not being a gigantic faggot
Thank god I'm more of a solo player. I don't know how I'd be able to handle dealing with you fags in game.
Reminder that lynn are still girls and all girls are insane
They have to learn somehow, keep it up man.
>they are still in
Also are the chests at the end of dungeons finally able to open? Yhey had all sorts of goodies and they didn't see to work on the cbt.
I regret finding out for myself
Does feeding your hongmoon weapon with heroic items create better fixed stats when upgrading?
Please, or I will rape all lyns.
It'll only do it faster, not better, I think
>want to play blade and soul
>download the 24 gb client
>watch a stream, he says something about a founders pack
>go check the page
Holy fuck, and here was I complaining about league being p2w, is this game fair for no money people or I shouldn't bother with it?
>Founders Pack is P2W
The most expensive one is paying 125$ to get character slots, cash shop money, headstart, and some cosmetics.
None of which make you any better at PvP.
So, where's the love for this, best outfit in BnS?
Have any of you master pack owners used all your NCoins on subscription time?
It's grindy, and anyone who says otherwise is lying or uninformed.
Hongmoon levels are a huge grind, as is the money/mat grind for your gear.
>they won't recognize they had to roll back the client
I think the game is allowed to take spaces. reservation of names is very case sensitive, so I think you're fine
How do I reach maximum stats? Everytime I upgrade it, the maximum just increases at the same time.
for the skin? if you like it
it's untradeable tho, but i wouldn't buy it
Time to transform, m8. Try to upgrae it, and it'll tell you what items you need (the weapon from the wheel, and something else)
You can pay for more champions and then have more IP left over for Runes (Aka in game stats).
Having more champions to pick from is an advantage. Debate me how useful that advantage is, but saying it ISNT an advantage is stupid.
>that skin tone
too bad about the rest of your character
A single example doesn't mean what he mentioned isn't an advantage, it means you got by without said advantage.
Nothing's wrong here, but none of this is outright buying power.
>FINALLY farming faction NPCs in Misty Woods painlessly at the speed of light
>Server shits itself
>Most others didn't
>30 minutes in queue
LITERALLY ANY OTHER FUCKING TIME I WOULD HAVE BEEN OKAY WITH THIS.
yeah and you get can to Hearthstone wtih a free account. Doesn't mean buying cards isn't P2W.
>Nothing's wrong here, but none of this is outright buying power.
It's buying an advantage. Even though it's slight.
I'm glad it wasn't just me then.
She's fine for me. She weighs 112 pounds and like to sit on top.
The costume shop doesn't have anything better. Ncjews know how to milk out games, they save the best for later - midgame times. Even though they have 4 years worth of content, they will stil make it last 10 years.
Same thing happen to Aion, Archage and more. I hate Ncsoft for doing this.
>around 9 hours left until everyone is stuck in queue
Not him but you've got the mindset of your average redditor/lolg/ denizen.
LoL is many shitty things, but your arguments are so fucking bronze that I can't even wrap my head around them
The pay model is outdated. They're implementing a new system in which you can buy champs in different ways, with an in-game currency besides IP.
How is Poharan? I made all my characters on Jiwan but my friend made his on Poharan. I'm only lvl 14, so I can still remake without waiting forever for the character to delete, but I want to hear from people on Poharan first. We're trying to decide before the rest of our group picks a server tomorrow.
Alot of fighting game players are just skipping pve, and going into the arena.
If you are a f2p player, have one character slot for your pve, and the other open so you can try all the other classes.
This game is a 1v1 pvp fighting game with a pve minigame added on.
shill out, dude, I was the one who brought it up, the guy you are replying isn't, I was comparing it because you get like 3 months of more exp and less gold to pay on buying things and tons of early game items
FM is kind of... counter to what I want in an MMO all about kung fu shit.
But Summoner looks boring and LBMs are every-fucking-where.
Might just stick with my Destroyer or KFM at this rate.
Summoner and FM are the most boring classes in this game because they are ranged.
Once you go melee and get the feeling of dodging, blinking, blocking, all the while CCing and managing your dps, you see how fun other classes are.
Sitting back and spamming buttons isn't fun in a game like this.
For 100% Scrubs wanting to learn/join PvP and reaching Gold/Platinum:
Best class for beginners? All depends on their level of evaluating the situation.
In my opinion, Assassin is the best class for a newbie to start with, because of the classes available Assassin is the only one that can change the speed of the match and anytime as well as giving a complete noob time to evaluate the situation via Ninjutsu. Whenever you receive big damage if you manage to Ninjutsu away you can process what the fuck just happened. Using faster pace classes, this form of learning the game is usually missed out on because of things happening so rapidly.
Blade Master offers a less form of the same thing via their 1 against browse/silvers opponents.
Destroyers are low risk/high reward, but to me, the value in decision making is more important. You might win with Destroyer because it requires less skill throughout browse/silver, but your understanding of the game will progress much slower than that of the other classes. Because you're winning and NOT losing. Therefore when you reach the good players you'll bring in those bad habits you learned from winning against browse/silver players.
KFM is not for yolo'ing. You will lose a lot until you do some hardcore research. Out of the question for noobs. Also ping dependent. LB - > 2 -> Repeat or some other shit you were doing in PvE will get you nowhere. You need to learn what your skills do and how to combo them together.
FM requires a slightly higher understanding of ETS than BM, but at the same time requires more effort from the player. You need somewhat PvP mindset to progress with this class. Learning and trying new things is key here.
Blade Dancer is your " for somewhat intelligent kids" version of Destroyer. Not so much low risk but still offers high reward and for using your brain just a little bit.
Summoner is your typical mid tier risk rewarding multitasking class.
>Get to 30, dip my hand in PvP and get wrecked 5 in a row.
Feels bad. At least I got 1000xp closer to level 31 on my Blade Master.
I forgot to change for PvP skills, I'm guessing they help quite a lot.
I feel like mistakes were made.
FM is just so fucking dull, but I'm only level 17.
Comparatively, the Destroyer at the same level should feel clunky and dull but it somehow doesn't.
In beta I didn't get the stupid upgrading system.
Do I have to ugprade my first weapon infinitely or can I just switch to different weapon and upgrade that? Or whatever the fuck you even drop in the endgame and such? Do you do anything but upgrading the items you get from tutorial?
>running Tomb of Exiles cross server
>party skips mobs, follow them but get attacked and get slowed down
>party initiates boss, wall of fire kills me
>asks if anyone can revive me, no response
It's like I'm playing a single player game.
Even at 45 you'll have a hard time as a BM in PvP. The thing that makes Blade Master so good is the amount of tools they bring into the match. Right now with 45 cap and no Hungmoon levels you only have about 60% of the stuff that makes BM good in PvP. The other stuff is locked behind cap wall.
BM is fun, just overplayed.
If you don't give a fuck what others are playing, don't deny yourself the class
I figured it might have been possible to start earlier considering you get the quest at 30, but oh well. I can try again at cap.
And judging by how destroyed I got by the 2 Summoners and 2 FMs I fought, more practice wouldn't go a miss.
>Thinking about whether or not I should play on launch or wait a week or so
>Remember the lag and the fight for mobs whilst levelling
>I can live with that
>Then remember the queues on every launch
Yeah, think I'll wait
So the western version of the game have "content" to "add" and the game doesn't die 2 weeks into it's opening because of no-lifers maxing the shit out of the game and having nothing else to do
>will it go the same route as TERA?
- Lyn only has one edgelord class so no.
- You can't buy Premium with gold so no.
- There's no grinding in BnS like there is in TERA so no.
- Cute Lyn boys master race so no.
- There's no official RP server so no.
- There's aren't many role playing functions either so no.
- PvP is equalized = less faggots afking around a town so no.
- Dungeon lobbies so no.
- Queue times annoying people so no.
Blade & Soul becoming the best Korean MMO in Amerinca.... so yes. Previously own by... TERA. so yes it will go the same route once players switch over, but that all depends on your meaning of the same route.
everything has more players than wildstar
I never laughed so fucking hard
Kind of stuck at the moment. What exactly should I do with
>Viridian Transformation Stone
>Element of Luck
Save them for my Hongmoon Weapon/Necklace?
Any help is appreciated
Use your transformation stones on your weapon, then use any extras on your jewelry. Never sell them unless you you've moved on to the next stone tier or have an excess from crafting or you'll want to kick yourself later.
Save the vitidian transformation stone for your weapon. But don't think too much about it, you can craft them or buying them in the market
Other things are just help for upgrading your weapon. Don't hug them and use them while you can, since some of them have a level cap. They'll help you, but they aren't critical
>- There's no grinding in BnS like there is in TERA so no.

Seriously if this is a Q in head start then NOBODY is getting into windrest on day 1 who isn't already logged in.
Windrest confirmed fro head start player only server
Wildstar is just a ded game, NCsoft thought that making it follow their new F2P model would help it but it just made people less likely to play it. The concept of the game is fun
and for the most part, I actually had some funbut it has more negatives than positives.
she looks so excited when her little sword is out awwwwwwwwwwwhhh
Farmed this set before heading to bed last night.
I have concluded that B&S is Waifu Dress Up Simulator 2K16
They decided to launch Wildstar first instead of Blade and Soul, purely because they knew about the game soon to die future. Might as well cash in some bucks right?
Not sure if BnS have a bright future though.
You forgot the part about some of that stuff being locked behind the PvP wall and most Americans being filthy casuals to the point they would rather complain on forums and ask NCSOFT to implement pay for convenience transactions.
Again, what grinding?
you can unlock all the important stuff, either grinding or crafting. Skins will be sold, and stuff for convenience, like exp boost, will be sold
if you go to arena, nothing matters because the game makes you even with your oponent. Only difference is getting level cap for more skill points, but that's it
