    I'd prefer if they stop making new classes. Maybe then ill be forced to pick one i somewhat like (theyre all boring imo) and actually grind it out and get it strong.

    You have a major problem when people deny your suggestions don't you? You are not in any way an official GM to throw an idea and demand from others to follow simple because some may got help from it. In any case, write whatever makes you sleep nice and tight. Maybe you cannot accept the fact that I did not cry, maybe this makes things difficult for you?

  5. feebleone added a post in a topic Stop the griefers!   

    BDO actually twists this in a way that the typical definition can not be used.
    For example if a player chooses to log in and start grinding Sausan/Pirates on a weekend knowing it's already camped and just ignores everyone it's very disruptive to the parties.  Especially when that player has a Level / Gear far superior to the area.
    In a way it's griefing everyone, or no one depending on how you look at it.
    It's also a weird situation as Sausan/Pirates are partially designed for groups, and a single player taking the main rotation obviously causes issues.  Especially if on several channels players want to solo/duo.
    Pearls answer to this dilemma is simply this: DONT GIVE A F
    Do whatever you want, abuse lower players, fight, share, WHATEVA!

    Transparency and due diligence I'd suppose. 
    Right now it seems that there is some 3rd party company that may have peoples info and further down the line from that the source that hacked that info and whomever / whatever they intend to do with it in the coming days, months years etc.
    There is an argument for keeping it internal but if there is nothing shady about this 3rd party relationship then Kakao should be protecting all of us not them.  There is a chance this is a 3rd party that people may visit directly, there is a chance that this is a 3rd party that other sites also use and have chosen not to or don't have the means to tell their customers. .In the event of something like this informing the consumer so they are aware enables them to be smarter in the long term, both in their dealings with you and outside of your domain.

    I feel like it's only the DISPARITY between kinds of Items has gotten way farther apart.   ...like, I couldn't get any of my Boss Gear to go +12/+13 till I was around 32 stacks each time.  But meanwhile I took a Kreig sword from +7 to +15 with literally only 12 blackstones and then Grunil Armor went DUO with only 3 HardStones.  And the only reason I'm making the pleb gear was to try and get the failstacks I needed .. which I didn't get
    I wouldn't mind so much if Memory Fragmetns were cheaper / also came from Lifeskilling .. but this is just becoming the most blatant "WE WANT EVERYONE to KNOW that they have to buy tons and tons of Artisan'sMems from us or it's going to take half a year to for their Rare gear to even get to DUO"

    PS. Like I said. If you want to know so badly, go look for it. As stated- I found it in 10 minutes.
    Again, not sure what you're expecting to do with the information there, as anything you would be doing unless your name is on that site(and even then they've reset your password anyways) would be a felony in most countries for Identity charges and computer hacking if prosecuted.
    For those of you who are slow, what i'm implying is, if you login to someone elses shit and you get caught;

    What are you even talking about lol. I don't think you're following what's happening here. You more than likely got screwed on your own account because you were account sharing, chances are this had nothing to do with you, and if it did then damn, that sucks.
    1. Because it's not a data breach. READ THE -----ING POST.
    3. you clearly have never experienced this specific type of issue before. The first time I was introduced to this(though it's been happening for AGES) was the rsclient data dump back in like 08. That is the exact dump, in fact, that pushed me to get into cyber security & risk management in the first place.

    I'm in need of a gift pass. I'm level 45 and would like to keep playing a bit longer. Pleasantly surprised with just how much fun this game's turned out to be.

    Hello, this keeps happening to me after being online for a while (about 1h). Why? And how do I fix this? Do I have to re-install the game?

    So if it's a 3rd party site why have none of the sites reset all their users passwords or announced a data breach?
    Also how do you know specific accounts involved? 
    Doesn't sound like a 3rd party site to me unless it was the payment portal or something similar on your end, not ours.

    It makes no sense that they would force a password reset  for their customers. If this was done with every compromise then we'd be doing it every week.
    Something is fishy here.

    1. Laziness.
    2. They don't know any better.
    3. They think either/or/and that `This can't and won't happen to them because they are a special snowflake of good karma and there is no reason for anyone to target them because of ${x}`
    Those are the most common cases I've seen.

    How to continue the Dim Magical Armor story for upgrades?
    I'm trying to figure out how to start the "Magic Armor Exchange I" Story line but it seems no matter what I do, Black Spirit won't give it to me.  Am I doing something wrong?  I'm lvl 54 with story completed to Mediah and have the Dim Magic Armor in my inventory.  Also on "Six Steps for Personal Growth V" so I'm supposedly past the requirement.

  20. Kanomas added a post in a topic Making Epheria Sailboat takes that long??   

    I have a 10 hour 5 day a week job working IT. I do IT work for a electric company and I'm on call all the time. Yet, I still choose to earn my way in a game. Wanna know why? Because its a god damn game. This is how games work, if its not fun to play the game and earn your way, then don't bother playing. I disagree with your post wholeheartedly. You should choose to play a game to not only earn the rewards and spoils that come with it, but if you wanted too... you could of just went to work, and fished your way to buying the boat off the marketplace. AFK fishing is a thing. You didn't have to make it (the boat in question), especially making other people slave over it for you (which again you could of earned yourself). It's a game, and this mentality is the reason why games like this in my personal opinion is going to shit. The GIMMIE GIMMIE attitude is why warcraft is a shell of what it once was. Infact, it's the reason why a lot of games are the shell of what it once was. If you feel you can't earn something in a game, and do it yourself, you have no reason to play this game, and should just buy assassins creed 4, and sail all you want in that, since your mail goal anyway was a freaken boat. They give you one for free in that game, I'd said that would suit you best. If you do choose to stick with this game, I would recommend just buying a sailboat in game or a raft, and just sail on that, or join a guild with their own already made ship. Seriously, for you to be proud of a childish mentality such as GIMMIE WHAT I WANT RIGHT NOW, instead of earning it, is like being proud of a child who shouts back at their mother for not getting their way. I don't care what your real life job is, most of the people that play this game have more hours than you, and still play this game, and earn their way. Its part of the damn game, and if you don't like it, there is the revolving door. I'll be damned if I don't stand by that statement.

    I don't know why people don't have a junk email with a different password than their main email that they use for game logins, etc. That way, even if their information gets stolen by a website, they won't have any of your login credentials.

    They don't, that's why they state it.
    Many people use the same passwords across accounts because they are lazy and or don't know any better.
    It's not uncommon to assume that 70% of the people on these forums have the same email password as they do game password.
    No, you don't.
    I doubt you'd be qualified to.
    What is it you expect to do with the information that's out there?
    I'm really curious.
    Even so, as i stated. It would give a vector of danger to those whos data is dumped on that site. I haven't checked myself as technically that's a felony in my country, America.

    Nobody forces you to keep trolling, yet you do.
    You should consider wearing a clown outfit for a living.  It would suit you well.
