  5. FapperJack added a post in a topic Pets are overall real cancer, specially T4s.   

    If u could buy a PEN with $5k so be it. The real cancer is that in this game the only way to get a PEN is through CANCER RNG. That means ppl are forced to keep throwing money at it until they get one that may cost them $50k and still not even guarantee u a PEN. And some ppl are so addicted to gambling they can't stop themselves from keep throwing and throwing money at this game it's nothing but an online casino. Add the fact that since we don't have "personal trade" in this game and even the market is cancer RNG, everybody is forced to keep gambling and gambling until they go total broke. Truly EVIL GENIUS game design I must say.

    Paying for a service like this, even if it is for convenience, is not really worth the idea. No offense, but gaming communities don't tend to rely on paying for information, even if it is up-to-date. Players learn from other players, fans of the game that can create and code make fan sites and calculators with the want of helping the community. While it doesn't pull in much money for them, it's by their choice and many are thankful for the hard work that's put into it. This has been done not only through BDO, but in many, many games for years now. A service like this will not take off well. Sorry.

  9. RainbowRat added a post in a topic Year 2 Mega Horse Breeding Thread   

    pruning doesn´t give the desired byproducts though. if all you´re missing out on shards and exp, but there´s no real point in leveling farming anyway? just reduces the energy usage... don´t have much time these day so i just breed everything right away.
    i think i could have even more but a lot of times i breed them after 200%, the amount of byproducts you get at that point seems to be lower. 97 slots -> max 25 byproducts after 200% and max 35 before 200%

  10. Kuu added a post in a topic Weakest Class in BDO   

    False and true, because it's a very mental type of thing. AKA people want to put the blame game to make themselves feel better.
    The facts are, tamers can put up K/D numbers as much as any class decently proportional to their gear/skill/level. Same with ninja, kuno, whatever.
    The facts are wars are not based on classes but on a very broadly matchup of power vs power. More people, more gear, more alliances, more whatever. Most node wars end in an expected result (the bigger, badder, strong guild wins). You can say a node war is pretty much determined before it began by seizing up who has more attendance and better numbers, and only sparsely at times better shotcalling and placement.
    What is true is a singular tactic, or rather, conveniently used meta.
    1: 2 sides gather up their forces in a single spot, either defending or attacking. (such as an opening, or annex or whatever) A choke point if you want to call it artificial or natural.
    2: Start up with gathering and making sure all CD, 100%, and buffs are up
    3: Protective Field
    4: Rush in in that singular moment and do critical damage on that annex, or enemy
    5: If successful (say 50vs50 becomes 45vs35) it's an instant clean up, due to superior numbers
    Certain classes do better at this tactic the others. It goes from mages for their protective field, to zerkers with their 100% to sorcs 100%, to warior solar flare, etc.
    The key to this is to keep in mind, that you first have to be of similar gear threshold and attendance numbers, as well as the skills/lag/fps to pull the tactic off...basically.
    So when it does/doesn't work, people want to do the blame game of the classes balance this balance that. Though in reality, most fights ends in being destroyed by superior numbers and or gear.
    There's really no way to fight off numbers that is approx 20%+ more then your own unless you vastly out gear them in, as the war drags on. It just doesn't normally happen, no matter what arm chairing theories are put forth.

    This is fantastic. You can cancel the entire animation for the 3rd strike and you will still get the buff.

    Yes, it can be found on google. It's all about convenience. You'll be able to find everything on a single place, with support so you can get the best from your gameplay and always up to date which google can't always provide for you.
    Thanks for your reply.

  16. Reave711 added a post in a topic Musa Open World Chronicles - Vol 1   

    berserker's have superarmor as long as they have stamina, the cooldown on flying kick doesn't remove its superarmor effect, it also doesn't cost a lot of stamina...that in conjunction with the berserker skills pretty much means 100% superarmor
    this seems like a solid way to do it, never had a musa actually do this to me, still probably wouldn't cc but in 1v1s it seems viable...still pretty questionable in group fights tho

    Sorc's spin drains stamina, plus has no block on cd and massively reduced damage. Any sorc who spams violation has no -----ing clue what he is doing and will get CC'd and die. I'm over 250AP and spinning into people on CD is more dangerous to me than anyone else.

    That's good news if it comes here, because I don't disagree with the problem, I just found their solution to be too large a hammer for the nail.

  24. Spartakatz added a post in a topic Trade Magnate Debuff: the concept is sound, I'm going to use it too.   

    Unfortunate side effect of limiting the port ratt trade income.
    However it seems they recently changed something again in KR: http://bbs.black.game.daum.net/gaia/do/black/update/read?articleId=443&pageIndex=1&bbsId=BDN002
    From what I can make out via google translate, it appears that only the 14 high price trade goods will count towards the accumulated amount, which triggers the magnate buff.
    That would make sense, as there is no reason to limit the shitty trade goods, you don't make much with them anyway.
