    I don't understand how people expect a guild with barely any siege experience to go for castles just because they are able to pull 80. Let them stay wherever they want to go untill they feel comfortable to step it up. May it be with a ally or alone. Resilience, keep doing you. You know you're doing good when you piss people off.

  9. PoL added a post in a topic I dont think anythings going to kill this game faster than future tech   

    I think something else should be taken into account. This game is written for the PC and not a console and herein lies part of the problem.
    With the console the dev can plan and understand what hardware is being utilised. They can get much better result as the hardware is uniformed and known. A PS4 is a PS4 - they do not have to consider if it will be a "low powered" or a "high-end" console. They are not constrained with the console - however, they are with a PC.
    First problem, you want to have as many people playing your game as possible on a PC that has minimum and recommended specs. All these must be generalised as there is no "standard" PC. The content will require that many people mix in one place - that will create issues and how the players PC handles it. Some will perform better than others.
    The second issue to contend with game-wise is this MMO is a client-server application. This means you have a program on the player computer and it talks to another part of the program on another computer.  The amount of code you run on either computer has to be calculated, run too much on the client (which the devs have limited control of) then game will not perform well when the client is half way round the world.
    Then there is the game engine which could be 10yrs old...
    All said and done, the PC MMO always suffers because of these issues. All are very hard to fix and difficult to address for a noticeable improvement. If they are addressed it is slowly and carefully.
    Consider these facts when you are playing your favourite game next time, and cut the devs some slack

    Golden Fishing Rod vs Balenos fishing rod
    So which one do you think is better for afk fishing?
    Is it possible to brand golden fishing rod, so it will last longer?
    Right now I have branded balenos +7, with 85 durability, and just wondering if golden fishing rod would be better. It does increase fishing speed, and I should get better fishes (I acctually only fish for relics, so hopefully golden rod increase channches for catching relics also). But Balenos does have 18% afk fishing save time. So I'm not sure which one is better.
    Let me know what do you guys and sheilas think.

  16. Zubi added a post in a topic coming from maehwa   

    Against rangers I usually dash around them and then Shift+Q or Below the belt, their awakening combos have large cooldowns so they usually try the grab combo and then jump around with their bow and that's when you can get them easy. Be careful tho because they still hurt and you may have to walk backwards from time to time to block them and bait them into trying to grab you.
    Against grab classes best way is to bait a grab and then  dash away because if they manage to knock us down we're most likely dead. Make good use of the walking-backwards-block at a safe range but don't abuse it against ranged classes or mages because they'll break your block and drain your stamina making you stale and die.

  17. DenverRalphy added a post in a topic Watchout for sudden severe lag/desync while solo grinding   

    Something has definitely changed. Pre-patch/maintenance I can run my horse from one area to the next and not see any noticeable drop in FPS or lag. Post patch/maintenance, and running the same route, I'll see noticeable FPS drops and/or lag from one area to the next. And that's not even in areas with the Cherry Blossom trees added. Encounter so much as one player or NPC on your path, and suddenly everything stutters due to a severe FPS drop (and sometimes without even those encounters). You don't even have to be running into a highly populated area anymore. My rig didn't change at all, settings didn't change, and suddenly  1 or 2 weeks ago (it started two maintenance patches ago) is when it all started.
    You can see it in other aspects of the game as well. The Black Spirit Adventure game takes twice as long to load than it used to, there's a significantly longer lag between the time you click the die before it actually rolls compared to what it used to (and yes, I'm smart enough to completely close the whole BDO client and reboot it after each round of playing the Black Spirit Adventure, because that too destroys the rest of the game's FPS/Lag).

    Thats completely fine when you have fun but dont expect me to welcome you with open arms... i made my experience with you for 4 weeks straight and also in open world pvp. I have a clear picture of Resilience and i dont like it how you guys handle things. Welcome to the sieging szene but thats what you have to learn to deal with... not everyone will hold your hand and guide you through the harsh world.

    have you tried using the foods that give you drop increase while gathering? Just Friday I got 3 sharps in 15 min and a hard 10 min later. I only gathered for about 30 min. Also try items like cotton and herbs not just wood. Ore gives me more also.
