    Not saying youre a liar sir, but...
    What? Who said that? Interesting if true, but I think PS4 players would be at a significant disadvantage.
    They'll probably have less Desync tho ;D

    Gracias amigos. Never would have guessed, and google just brought me to trolly reddit pages.
    Appreciate it.
    Wouldn't you want more bad rangers playing though?
    Possibility of buffs if the majority of people playing the class are struggling to excel ;P

    Oh look a generic title! MP question.
    Hey gents, just something real quick. Tried googling it, not sure if I understand it completely.
    As many are aware of, when you want to sell an item that is high value but also high quantity of availability, Say a TRI Ult ranger blue awakening, you can list for minimum price to try to sell your item.
    However, there is bound to be another 30 or so of these items also listed at minimum price that you have to compete with, and if they were there first you have to wait your turn. But ive noticed that the minimum price changes every so often, can any of you tell me exactly what is the influencing factors of what causes min price to raise/lower, and how often the market Procs the change?
    In other news, all of you please reroll to ranger and buy my listed awakening weapon. Please.

  4. LeWaffles added a post in a topic Easy calm farming   

    So are you asking for a lifeskill profit guide, or a grinding guide?
    Lifeskill, just cook beer or EoL until 250 cp. Have workers gather all the lumber and ores around velia, heidel, calpheon, and west and south of altinova. Process these mats. Sell them. Monehs.
    Grinding, get 150 AP and just go to elrics and easy mode up in the castle.
    You can watch a tv show, you can listen to music, etc while grinding and you can literally do ANYTHING IN THE WORLD besides grind while youre lifeskilling.
    Any further questions, feel free to ask!

  5. LeWaffles added a post in a topic Ranger is broken, in a bad way.   

    Perhaps its because im usually only fighting people around 480 GS and in RBF I have to play ultra conservative anyways, but I reaaaally don't think ranger is a bad class.
    If its large scale PvP I agree and I wish things were a bit different, but in small scale or 1v1, I usually find ranger balanced/good. I lose to talented ninjas, talented valks, and people that are either much higher gear than me or people that are just plain better than me, but other than that I rarely find ranger lacking. Theres multiple bursty combos you can use so that the long cooldown on tremble isn't gamebreaking. Bow has so much utility that I can either I-frame or kite around to my hearts content until CD's on awakening are refreshed anyways, and the ranged KD isn't HORRIBLE as you can quicken the animation (doesn't always KD which is a bit annoying though).
    This is completely valid, I do think that those classes are a bit too strong. I haven't personally played wizard or DK awakening so I don't know how difficult it is to play those classes to have such a reward.
    But there will always be a best class. Maybe they shouldn't be the best by as much as they are, and if/when the nerf hits there will be a new OP class that everyone will have a problem with. Having a perfectly balanced game is impossible. I agree that developers should always strive to reach that goal, but I wont be upset when its pretty much un-attainable if theyre making the effort to try.

  6. LeWaffles added a post in a topic How many FS for Life Clothes?   

    Agreed. Never successfully gotten a +4, and I only have one +3 that took waaaaay too long and quite a bit of money to create. I would stop at +2 or +3 if its a skill youre gonna use a lot.

  8. LeWaffles added a post in a topic Deciding on your first class   

    Im gonna be honest, I personally think tamer is one of the 2 hardest classes to play(still completely doable though). The combat system in this game is amazing though, and its a different style of "combo" than a traditional fighting game like street fighter or mortal kombat. Your decision making is more based around using certain abilities after you've already used certain other ones and stringing the skills together.
    Tamer is an EXCELLENT 1v1 class, and while its mob clearing speed is average when grinding alone, your pet pulls additional mob aggro so in a party you are a very valuable asset if you learn to properly attract mobs. When you eventually get to pirates, most parties will be willing to take you in for this reason alone, which will drastically improve your grinding for exp and loot.
    Good luck brother, I hope you enjoy your bdo experience. Let us know if you have any more questions!

  9. LeWaffles added a post in a topic Looking for good Ranger build   

    If you aren't going past 50 or 56, then you shouldn't worry about it too much.
    Are you asking build as in gear, or build as in skill tree?
    If skill tree, the only move you will use to farm up to lvl 50 is EES. That's literally it.
    As for items, you can use softcapped gear as in +7 grunil and +5 weapons. Or the other way around? whatever it is idk.
    Jarretes accessories will serve you just fine.

  10. LeWaffles added a post in a topic Best place   

    Good sir, what YOU are saying is simply not true. Perhaps as a 147 Ranger if I use my two most damaging moves on EVERY pack of mobs I come across, then Maybe. However, natures tremble has a long cooldown. Are you talking about being in a group with someone and both of you use 2 moves on the same pack, cause that's pretty much the only way 147 AP will clear a sausans mob in 1-2 skills.

  11. LeWaffles added a post in a topic Communication   

    We don't all go through the same server. As Huntler explained on a different thread that I can try to find, there are various proxies that people are forced through. He provided a step by step instruction on how to check it as well.
    I personally haven't done it yet, still gotta get home from work.
    Also, I edited my previous post, I agree with you a little bit more now.

  12. LeWaffles added a post in a topic Communication   

    I was unaware of this thread ill admit. The suggested fixes don't seem to work for many people, but ill try it when I get home.
    I will be pleasantly surprised if the issues are resolved, but due to having good connection experience with every other game I play and the fact that it seems MANY people are having the issues after doing as much as they can themselves, I wont hold my breath All the GM acknowledged was "Check your own stuff because this isn't our fault."
    Perhaps the phrase I used could be argued over, and maybe I should have used a different one. You knew exactly what im referring to though, even if you don't experience the issues, ive seen you comment on threads where this is being discussed.
    Edit: Didn't see this further down the list. I retract part of my complaint about communication.

    Hey there,
    We are aware of how widespread this issue is and we are currently collecting data in order to resolve it. We are getting reports stating that the flush DNS + reset TCP/IP method works permanently for some, only a single time for a few, and not working at all in others. Do keep in mind that this is not a permanent solution we offer, rather than an suggestion, feedback of which will also guide us towards the root of the issue.
    Additionally, I'd like to thank you for spending some of your time to provide feedback for us, and while there is no definite solution I can give you at this moment, I can assure you that the issue is being investigated. If there is any more valuable information you think would contribute to the solution of this issue, please let me know by sharing it here or sending me a PM.

    "Greetings, Do you want to help Black Desert be the best game possible? We are constantly looking for ways to improve the game, your feedback and suggestions are a key part of this process."
    See that every day on the forum at the top of the page, right?
    Not super believable though. They don't acknowledge the 17 threads created in the past 2 days all with the same message of poor servers and optimization issues. They don't necessarily have to fix it right away, but they don't EVEN ACKNOWLEDGE IT.
    Communication is NOT the strong point of these companies.
    Perhaps I just want communication on the issues I feel are important.
    New content<Server stability.

  15. LeWaffles added a post in a topic Deciding on your first class   

    Give us a general idea of what playstyle you like and we can make recommendations. If you don't know what playstyle you like, time to make one of each and try them out
    Most people will tell you that wizard, witch, and dk are the stronger classes right now, but most classes are playable if you take the time.
    What have you played as in other games that you really enjoyed?

  16. LeWaffles added a post in a topic Ranger - Bow Grinding - The wind god!????   

    Yeah, ranger isn't S-tier anymore for sure.
    However, its still A-tier in most situations. Besides the fact that it conceptually doesn't fit well with "ranged class" it is still strong. I agree that its sad that the bow is now used to complement awakening rather than the other way around, but its still a strong class:
    + Better than decent PvE, you just have to farm with awakening 99% of the time.
    +Good in small -medium scale PvP, as mobility combined with burst is useful when you don't have to worry about 8 potential enemies catching you in a CC
    +as dremlock would say, Best thighs ingame.
    -Conceptually frustrating, as we want to use bow more but the damage is poop and you can only really use it for chasing/kiting (limited) and ranged KD, or in the miracle situation where you have 6 rangers safely spamming DC.
    -Those positives up there can be done better by other classes, pretty much every time.
    -DK might actually have better thighs.
    The fact that everybody is rerolling away from ranger can lead to several conclusions. I personally believe the class is still very good, and in the hands of an EXCELLENT player is better than everything except wizard/witch and possibly DK(don't have enough experience to comment).
    However, its easy to be a decent ranger, and stupidly difficult to be an amazing one. This is my personal opinion though, and better rangers than myself are leaving the class. I also hope the Devs give ranger a few tweaks, such as increased mainhand use incentive (damage, more utility etc) but I feel it would be hard for them to change too much without making the very strong rangers truly OP.

  17. LeWaffles added a post in a topic Ranger - Bow Grinding - The wind god!????   

    Pretty much what this guy said, but minor correction.
    Hes completely right that awakening weapon is far more efficient grinding.
    My correction is that bow has call from the sky as I-Frame as well, and its spammable. But its useful in PvP.

  20. LeWaffles added a post in a topic Thinking about purchasing   

    You can play the game forever with a 1 time purchase of any of the listed packages.
    However, in order to make optimal use of your time, you will probably want at least 4 pets at some point, which will be around 35 USD. Also, there is the value pack system which gives a large amount of super useful, but not really mandatory (besides extra silver on MP sales) benefits, which if you keep one active at all times is around 15$ a month.
    Most people who are largely successful in this game spend at least 40-100 USD after the one time purchase of the game.

  21. LeWaffles added a post in a topic Returning player Questions   

    Uh. Theres armor, yeah.
    It has pay to win aspects, but it isn't really pay to win, as in order to do so you would have to spend THOUSANDS of dollars to get boss gear that you can get through a dedicated amount of time to normal gameplay.
    Population is booming, that's definitely not currently an issue and I don't think it will be in the near future.
    Every class is good at certain things. Currently S-Tier classes are wizard/witch and DK. But honestly, you put a ninja against an equally geared and skilled wizard in 1v1 and the ninja will wreck them every time. The wizard will have more success in node wars though (large scale PvP) so you have to play to your classes strengths.
    Your welcome in retrospect.

  22. LeWaffles added a post in a topic Best piece of advice for a new player   

    Theres so many things...
    First off, make sure you do the main story quest on your first character, don't get powerleveled. You want the inventory slots and CP.
    Second off, don't delay getting workers and setting up your node empire. Get the corn, wheat, potato nodes around velia and heidel early on and invest a good amount of time into cooking beer. DO THIS. You might be thinking, MEH that's not important, but sir, I assure you it is.
    Third, enchanting in this game is one of the more annoying aspects. Make sure you read a few Failstacking and gear upgrading guides before you make an error youll hate yourself for later on.
    Fourth, find a class you like and STICK TO IT. If you get 3 classes up to 57, youre gonna be sad and burnt out from grinding once you realize that your main could be 58 and on its way to 59. Understand that grinding is a HUGE part of this game, and if you are unhappy with the combat mechanics of your class, you will go insane trying to grind out levels and money.
    Fifth, cook beer. Yes I said this twice, its that important.
    Any questions, feel free to ask! Good luck and welcome to BDO!

  23. LeWaffles added a post in a topic Tree Belt or Basilisk for belt for Tamer?   

    You want basilisk end-game, probably a TRI.
    You have a few options, you can skip tree-spirit belt completely if youre working with duo Shultz, or you can go up to duo tree spirit while waiting to get rich enough to afford basi.
    There isn't really a better belt, pretty much every class endgame wants TRI basilisk or Tree spirit.
    If youre looking at the base versions, that might be why they seem Meh. They get better enhancement stat increase rates.
