    how can you laugh at such tragedy?? You take for granted the tree armor sitting safely on your character sheet and think not of this poor man who had his stripped from him by cruel fate.

    @CM_Aethon @PM_Jouska Could we please get the name of the third party site that has been compromised, so we can avoid it? Also, the RU client has two step verification, could we communicate to the developers that we would like that added into our version?

    though i tend to observe the same but never checked for sure, trading XP was nerfed for trades under a distance of 500 (distance units) and velia-finto falls under that nerf most likely. So this very example is a bit biased.

    "Crystals will not be able to be infused on unbound Pearl Costumes"

    So if they are bound, will we now be able to use http://bddatabase.net/us/item/15641/ Ancient Spirit's Crystal Swiftness.

    But I guess http://bddatabase.net/us/item/16008/  Black Spirit's Claw has yet to be implemented. So maybe not?

    *waits in anticipation*

    Boi i guess the GMs of this game must be totaly clueless and have absolutely no internal access to the game and all of the required info from BDO game designers on matter like these. Yup, the GMs are just a random bunch of people who dont know nothing, browsing forums occasionaly while slacking off from work for the most part of the day.
    Thank you for this generous sharing!

    I personally enjoy the fact that the forum itself has no SSL or security what so ever.  Nothing like typing a password in that the entire world can see.

    What happened to your common sense then?  Also, it looks to me that you're well aware of the existence of the forum.  Didn't you read the news section?  It's right in your launcher too.  You're just mad

    Problem with ninja grinding is, you play like its PvP all the time. if you dont, you will lack insane damage, rendering your grind 50% useful compared to fully active, getting back attack, always using serpent on stance for most dmg, IMO. I mean i have close to 190 ap, and if i dont play hard core, i wont be able to grind pirates properly.

  21. Stabby added a post in a topic Enchanting failure rates   

     That's because there is a diminished return on failstacks when you pass the next tiers failstack amount. So for example 31 is the sweet spot for a TRI and 41 for a TET. If you go past 41 on the TRI attempt you now get diminished return on your success chance. That's my theory but I have no evidence to back it up except for my own personal experiences.

    Need Help Gearing
    I'm fairly new to the game but I was wondering how gear progression works. I am planning on buying the Grunil armor set but should I shell out the bit more to get the blue tier set? Eventually I want to upgrade it to gold tier so how does it work? Do I need to upgrade a blue set into a gold set or can I directly upgrade a green set into a gold?
    Also while i'm at it, what does it take to upgrade a item to the next tier?

    You are wrong and that GM is wrong.
    Anyone with a few minutes to spare can do the comparison: Selling a full, overloaded inventory from velia-finto yields roughly (depending on char weight limit) the similar xp as selling a full wagon in Heidel. In my case when I tested it now again, almost exactly 2 % on both. (I discovered this when I started levelling trading a few weeks ago, which made me happy since rolling is about as fun as repeatedly hitting your pinky toe on a table leg.) If you were correct, I should get at minimum 4 % for a finto run, since my char can carry more than twice the amount of items compared to a wagon.

    Is stupid to have all stats hidden
    But stats are not the only thing hidden 
    Its hidden stats + rng 
    Its playing a luck game without knowing ur chances of winning and losing 
    That sucks and gives the chance to Developers to make more $$$ making really low chances of sucess cuz we would need to buy more Artisian shit or horse pearls stuff etc to sucess 
    Devs Know that if we Knew all that hidden stuff we would complain and they would have to make it more fair
