    That is probably what happened then.  I will say though, those channels are pretty much cancer at times so part of me is glad not to be there.  Some folks there are...."rude?"

    Thanks folks. That is what I figured but with the lack of caffeine right now the other idea of buying a new account sounded something reasonable

    Level on Olivia or Buy New Account?
    Ok, this is a strange question but I'd like to know what you all think I should do if I plan to keep playing the game for the long term.
    I've had the game now for about 3 weeks and have a 56 Witch, 55 DK, and a 39 Ranger.  I started out on the Olivia servers but wanted to try out some of the boss fights on my Witch.  Little did I know that I couldn't go back there to continue leveling.   Also, I've changed over to the DK being my main character and have been just farming until awakening comes out.   As a "casualish" player, would it be more efficient for me to just pay the $10 for a new account so I can level my DK there to the 58.99?  Right now my current character only has 127 AP/ 179DP.

  5. StriderBDO added a post in a topic DK after awakening   

    Have you seen all the i-frames they have with the awakening weapon?  Build the class with AP + evasion and learn to use those i-frames.  They may be squishy but you can't kill what you can't hit.

    Either way... it's going to be awesome!   As someone who started out as a Ranger to play a "ranged" class, I'm pretty excited about what the DK has in store.

    WItch Boss Farming Build?
    Hell folks!
    I leveled up my with to 56 and then *cough* changed over to a DK.  Yeah, I'll admit it.  So, with the witch not being my alt, I wanted to build her specifically to farm bosses.  Instead of my normal AoE/PvP build I was using, I was wondering if there is something you all would suggest to specifically increase my chances of a decent drop from the boss loot.  Any thoughts on how I should alter my build?

    Can't start the Black Spirit Quest for the Ornamental Knot?
    So my DK just hit 51 and for some reason, I never got the quest to get the magical ornamental knot as outlined in the FEB patch.  It says I have to complete a specific quest but do you all know which one I need to do to get this started?  The wiki hasn't been very helpful.

  14. StriderBDO added a post in a topic DK is a Range Class!   

    This works for me... I was wanting something to fill the void I felt when playing a witch and so far, the DK is living up to that.  It is kind of sad though because some of the GS animations are really impressive.   Just sucks to put all that work into the weapon only to rarely use it later down the road.

    8/10.  I like the look but the shot is pretty dark so it's harder to see her face details.
     
    Here is my DK so far.  I created her based upon an RP story concept I had in development.  I wanted a much more "indifferent," almost "cold" look to her personality.  Something attractive yet clearly not someone you would want to tick off.

    I actually mentioned this story to a group I was in the other day and it was pretty funny how one of them asked, "You went from 300K to -120K?  Damn... how many times did you kill him?  What did he do?"
    Simple answer:  "Clearly not enough and... he mad me angry."

  19. StriderBDO added a post in a topic first impressions on DK now that youve played her yourself   

    With awakening skills, is she more of a close to mid range caster?  I'm always worried how some classes completely change once they get their awakening weapon.

  20. StriderBDO added a post in a topic Warrior or Witch/Wizard   

    I have a level 56 Witch right now and for PvE farming, he's cake.  It's also nice because they are so handy in group PvP and they can heal.  I tried playing a warrior a few times and though from what I understand, they are amazing once they get the awaking weapon, I just couldn't stick with them.

  21. StriderBDO added a post in a topic Class Comparison - Advice Please?   

    Thanks for the great advice everyone!  I actually tried the Maehwa as well up to about level 43 and really did enjoy the class.  I think at the time there were some bug issues with it which is why I never continued.
    I would somewhat hate to admit this but I've been testing the DK out a bit tonight and some of these combos are just amazingly fun!  I love the mobility so far as it feels like a combo of a sorc, maehwa, and a warrior all rolled together.  Not a huge fan of the awakening for the class though.

  22. StriderBDO added a post in a topic Negative Karma - What to do?   

    I fixed the problem pretty easily and wasn't a problem like you all already told me.  The irony was that right after I got back on the positive side, some rand guy came up behind me at sausans again and killed me in almost the same situation.  For a moment, I was like "Screw this!  I'm going full on outlaw now!!!"
    Then I looked at my crap GS and took a more rational approach... I tried to simply annoy the hell out of him instead.  Sadly, he ran away.

    Class Comparison - Advice Please?
    So, I should admit up front that one of my biggest problems in a MMO is picking a class to play as my "main."  I'm not a fan of alts so I really like to find a class and then poor everything I have into it.  With BDO, that's been a real pain as I played most every class in the beta days and beyond up to around 40 (ish).   Right now, I'm playing a 56 Witch but it just "feels" as if something is missing.   It's hard to explain...
    Did any of you ever play or see a Dagger/Dagger Elementalist from GW2?  This was my favorite class of just about any MMO I've ever played.  I loved the quick moves, the ability to race across the battlefield, and it could go from groups of mobs to another group in a matter of seconds while leaving a wake of destruction in it's path.  I suppose the witch sort of does this to some extent.
    What I'm looking for:
    SPEED!  I don't want a slow class to play.  I HATE slow classes with limited mobility, long cast times, or tons of long CDs.Self-Reliant.  I liked the witch because she can regen health/mana without having to use pots unless you really get into a bad situation.Not "heavily" gear dependent.  I've heard that some classes in this game are more or less dependent on your gear.  Right now, I have 135/137/174 GS and can solo farm pirates/sausans without much trouble.  Pirates can be tricky in some spots.For PvP, I'll mainly be rolling with my guild or small groups of 5.  I don't expect I'll be doing much 1v1 other than trying to save my arse from some random ganker.
     
    Okies... what do you all suggest?  Can you give me a top 3 suggestions and why?
    Oh, and here is a video of a D/D Ele from GW2 so you can see what I'm talking about:
     
    Oh, I forgot to mention... I was testing out the warrior because I've heard they can be really fun post awakening but thus far, leveling one has been painfully boring.

  25. StriderBDO added a post in a topic Considering a Warrior - Better with Awakening?   

    That's pretty much how it has felt so far - hell!  I've tried to level a warrior a few times and never really make it that far.  It just feels so much more boring than I would have expected.  The Musa was really fun, quick and exciting but felt so under-powered at about the mid 40's.  Course, I didn't have the best of gear back then.  Also, I can't stand the idea of putting away those amazing sword animations for that stupid pole-arm.  Oh, and why the witch over the wizard?  I didn't want to look like Gandalf.  When I came back to the game, I didn't know you can make a "young" wizard.  That, and with all the hate towards the class right now, I'd rather avoid them.
     
    That sucks to hear!  I love playing a class that is quick and moves around the battlefield.  If any of you played a D/D Ele from GW2, you'll know pretty much what I'm looking for.
