    If you're on an odd channel, you're gonna have a bad time. From my own personal experience, I was farming sausan's on a low level alt on an odd channel, and was getting huge lag spikes. Had solid FPS, was throwning spells out, and if it wasn't for my alt having my main's gear on him, he would of died because of all the lagged attacks received.
    As soon as I swapped to an even channel, the grinding was back to normal. No lag, no rubberbanding, no hitting loading screens. Nothing.
    It doesn't affect everyone at the same time though, as I was doing an odd channel Kzarka the day before and had no lag issues, but my officer and a guild member both experienced lag - my officer disconnecting because of it.
    There's a reason the odd channels are usually not crowded now a days..

    "if you're unlucky like me" isn't the phrase that should be used here. It doesn't take luck to make a sailboat, it takes hard work and time.
    The materials are easy to get.
    The workers are easy to get.
    There was more than enough time to prep for it(we knew about both the boats themselves and the speeds back in September/October 2016)
    Here's my correction to your statement:
    if you're too lazy like me, or just don't have the patience to put the work required into making the epheria sail quicker..
    I finished mine in.. 2 weeks roughly? something like that. I know people that had it done day one and we're waiting on the dailies to complete it.
    Its not luck that's holding you back when it comes to the sailboat.

    Could of been nerfed but Idk. I've heard that after a while of constantly doing the amity game, the game starts getting really impossible to succeed in. Maybe that's whats happening?

  5. TRNFloyd added a post in a topic Amity Game Question   

    If the NPC you're talking to has a really high interest level, say of 50, and the knowledge you're trying to use has a really low interest level, say 15, then the percent will be lower than if the NPC had an interest level of 30.
    In the example I provided, the Knowledge spark interest percent chance would be 30%, but if the NPC had 30 interest level, the percent chance would be 50%. That said, if they we're reversed and you had the NPC at 15 and knowledge at 30, the knowledge would say 100%(technically 200%) but due to a bug with the amity game, there would be a chance that that knowledge would still fail.
    This is why its important to use certain knowledges as they can affect the NPC's interest level - both lowering and raising it after x-amount of turns. 
    The NPC's interest level has a bit of RNG to it on top of all of this, as well.
    Idk if this helps OP, but this is basically all I know from self research into the system via trial and error.

  8. TRNFloyd added a post in a topic Idea to fix Karma Bombing   

    I was able to deal with it. I did deal with it. It happened last week and I've been back to full karma since the next day. I wasn't forced to flag, I used the flag as a warning and stayed flagged the whole time. I was willing and able to throw down to defend the grind I needed to do. I went negative and I did deal with it afterwards. I was clearly willing to deal with the aftermath as when I went to get my karma back, I had to flag on people to defend the karma grind back to positive.
    Over-geared players are always going to own spots, but that should be an incentive to get better gear so you can compete. One of my guildies did just that(was killed while lifeskilling, used that as fuel to get better gear and then went and got his revenge). However, that said, you do at least bring up some valid points. There is indeed very little incentive to grind in Valencia. That and the no karma loss channel would be amazing. At least that way, maybe someone like @Excisionex would maybe actually choose to fight instead of rolling over and letting people take his grind spot. Then again, I doubt he'd grind on a channel like that, but that's besides the point.
    Good on you to at least suggest something rather than just chastising an idea without providing any constructive criticism towards fixing an problem that at least 100 threads a day are made about!

  9. TRNFloyd added a post in a topic Please fix Stealth   

    If stealth gets fixed so that pets don't follow, it just means I'll carry a few extra flares when I know kunos/ninja's are around since it breaks stealth. 
    Sure it leaves me vulnerable, however, as a wizard..
    First: Sage's Memory
    Second: Protected Area
    Third: Flare
    Fourth: Water Sphere + Flow.
    Because that too is a legit strategy to counter stealth, just a bit more of a challenge than following ones pet like the hunting dogs they are.
    inb4 they start asking for flares to be removed from game for breaking stealth or a change to them so it doesn't break stealth.
    Sneaky bastards, the lot of them!

    Idea to fix Karma Bombing
    After talking to someone in-game about this, an idea of how to fix karma bombing came to be.
    So, I'll use my most recent situation as an example:
    I went -200k the other day while defending the spot I had been at for hours and waiting for a dec to come up. It's w.e, the situation was dealt with and everything is fine. The people that bombed me came to my spot and said "please leave". Naturally I didn't want to leave, and they wouldn't add any additional clear speed to the grind. I was about 7 or so percent from leveling, so I moved over to them - the whole time they've been here I was flagged - and said I had been there for hours.
    "well I'm here now. please leave."
    After dropping down to 170k karma from 2 kills, we put the dec up and had to defend for 15 minutes. Eventually, and very quickly, I went red.
    Now this is where the idea for a fix comes into play. The person I was talking to about karma bombing just now brought it up. What if the longer you were in a grind spot, the less and less karma you would lose on defending said spot?
    As a hypothetical, lets say you only lost 1/10th the amount(just an example amount - don't take it as face value) after being there the max amount of time. Instead of dropping down as much as I did(I just did the math on it, 8 PvP kills brought me to -200k), I would of dropped to 248k roughly instead of -220k. I would consistantly be able to kill them/defend the spot while waiting for the dec, and not have to worry about the bombing doing too much damage.
    Some grind spots would completely discourage bombing all together(desert spots in particular). The desert could still keep the outlaw debuff as a thing, and this would become an incentive for people to go out more into the desert.. Hmm.. thinking I shouldn't of said that but w.e. Now, before anyone says anything, we thought about the "what about afking in the region" thing. At least with the desert, you have to stay alive. The debuff can and will kill afkers. As for others, potentially make the karma loss buff run out if out of combat for a certain amount of time.. though Idk.. I think it could be abused too.. maybe..
    hmm.. perhaps the fact that you'd have to be in the grind region itself would prevent people from wanting to just afk there.. People would get a lot less done production-wise just to grief people at grind spots.. I don't think its smart to do that, but I can see at least some doing it.
    If anyone has any additional suggestions, we're open to them. Any additional ideas are welcome.
    Edit:
    I've posted this on the beta forums as well.

  11. TRNFloyd added a post in a topic Idea to fix Karma Bombing   

    On the one hand, it does feel kind of carebare-esk to lower karma loss in any way, shape or form..
    But on the other hand, you would have to "earn" the karma loss reduction, which idk..
    could be like:
    1H = first tier reduction
    2H = second tier reduction
    3H = final tier reduction
    or maybe more, Idk. There would still need to be loss of karma. I've heard whispers and talk of a el dorado patch that will remove karma loss for x-amount of time after the first initial kill - which solves one problem but creates another. It creates people going to grind spots to kill others and not have to worry about karma loss at all. 
    I'm just wondering if there's any BIG flaws to the idea.

    I know.. I knew going into this that that would probably happen..
    Not much I can do if I'm going to try to "help" people get better, and they choose to be dicks about it.
    Congrats! All of you that do everything you can to make kutum fights last longer than they need to be, are wasting everyone's time including your own!
    The fights could be done quicker, but you chose to stretch it out, get people killed in the process! Kudos to you kiddies that feel that the following are worth the sacrifice:
    Time spent grinding your next level out.Time spent processing materials for crates.Time spent grinding for drops.Time spent grinding for silver.Time spent doing AS many Kutum's as you can in the train, for the highest potential of a box drop.Time spent grinding skill points out.Time spent doing any -----ing thing other than a long as ----- Kutum fight.Maybe you go to just one Kutum fight a day, but there's no real reason to want to stretch it out other than being a -----ing -----.

  13. TRNFloyd added a post in a topic Nerf Witch and Wizard   

    Wizard is pretty strong. Perhaps I'm not at that point with mine, but a chain grab, or good CC's usually spells the end of me - which yeah, I agree is probably -----ing annoying with these servers as they've been.. 
    Healing Lighthouse is the main one you have issue with. At max rank, it heals 30% per pulse x 3 pulses. It doesn't have super armor, requires the wizard/witch to stand in place, in staff and it has a 30 second cooldown. Combo that with Healing Aura; 10 second cooldown with a 20% almost instant heal(unless sages memory is applied, its not instant) at max rank. In a single go, a wizard or witch can heal themselves 120% only every 30 seconds - which is a lot of time in PvP. Every 10 seconds following that they can heal an 20% via Healing Aura. Combo that with potions - extra large potions and/or superior whale potions(750 HP every 30 seconds, 500 HP for the green ones), and you have a wizard/witch that is basically an hp damage sponge.
    Healing Lighthouse can be interrupted, you just need to throw some CC's at them while they're doing it. It happens more than you'd think, but that's why the smart wizard teleports away first. Interrupting the healing lighthouse is big. It puts it on full cooldown, which means they either need healing aura or pots to heal up - doable, but leaves them in a vulnerable state.
    Which is where protection spells like Magical Shield and Protected Area come into play. PA is a giant damage reduction spell. It increases damage reduction to a point, where to compare it to something PVE: Kzarka's breath or Nouver's Breath or Karanda's Quill attack does -----ing nothing. Max rank: 8 seconds. It increases CC resist except for grapple and adds super armor. Magical Shield, at max rank, reduces damage by 25%, sending the reduced damage to MP - regardless of if the wizard has any left or not. It increases all resistance by 15% - including grapple - for 30 seconds(1 minute CD). Combo those two together, and then healing lighthouse, and chances are the wizard or witch will get the full heal off.
    Which puts you, most likely, right in front of them, trying to CC them, while they just swap to awakening while still under the PA and Magical Shield effects, and start to steam roll.
    It's possible, as I've had it happen to me a good number of times, to interrupt the teleport, forcing the 7 second cooldown, via grapple. Doing that can stop the wizard from pretty much everything above for 7 seconds. A well timed grapple - not considering how laggy the servers have been - can ----- a wizard up. Any CC really can ----- a wizard up from doing its thing. 
    Now that you know, OP, try getting someone to help you learn the tell's of their supporting spells, and maybe you'll catch a wizard with their pants down(low health trying to heal)!

  16. TRNFloyd added a post in a topic Korean Update Notes - Voice Chat Added / Hunting Changes   

    I think the voice chat that was added was for that 2v2 PvP mode thing they have/use for tournaments. The notes say it interrupts the guild voice chat, and considering the notes don't say the guild voice chat was just added, it makes me think that guild voice chat is in the KR client already. Which is further backed on the fact that the last time I logged into KR(back in december) they had the option for voice chat in-game already.
    This screenshot from KR was taken in October:
    http://image.prntscr.com/image/e0007d5c41f84856a3a4a83b804a8aef.png
    As you can see at the top, Voice Chat was already a thing in KR for many months before. Idk if it worked though because I'm not in a guild on KR.
    Side note, there's also players with weirdly coloured names. They stand out quite a bit and Idk why that's a thing nor how they got it. That was the original reason I took that screenshot lol.

  17. TRNFloyd added a post in a topic Node 10 weirdness.   

    Could of just been really lucky, but I know that overstacking - at least with knowledge gain - causes issues. My guildie did that with t4 birds and wasn't getting knowledge as consistantly as he was before using them. Could be something similar. I had a level 10 rogues node that never gave me belts. I got more belts from a lvl 0 node than a level 10. I've also been farming Centaurs for belts recently and haven't bothered to touch w.e node its linked to because I consistantly get soiled belts from them with a lvl 0 node. Another two guild members of mine had the same thing happen during a centaur kill quest.
    Perhaps having max luck + rank 10 node = overstacking luck and its causing issue with drops? Idk
    Could also just be poor RNG..

    Kutum boss mechanics
    It seems that some of you either still don't know the fight(perhaps being too new or just never really bothered to go to encounter all that much), or choose to actively do things that will prolong the fight. This is more or less for those of you in the former because the rest of you can f*ck right off. 
    There's one attack Kutum has, only one, that ONLY happens when someone is outside of mid-range. I main wizard, and I've been doing kutum since it launched. It only dawned on me a few months ago that this is how the attack works. You know that attack that, for some, can deal a hefty amount of damage and leave you stunned? The one that Kutum likes to chain into the vacuum? The ONLY reason that attack happens at all is because Kutum has targeted someone OUTSIDE of mid-range to attack, and then 9 times out of 10 changes his target to someone else. Very rarely do you see him do the air-blast/screech/w.e you wanna call it attack towards the actual targeted person. Most of the time, the person causing the attack is the safest person fighting kutum when it comes to that attack.
    The time it doesn't hit the ranged person with the attack, it usually spreads the damage amongst EVERYONE else in the fight at random. I've been hit with it before and seen people also get stunned from it on the other side of kutum. The attack is broken. 

    This screenshot is a good idea of how close to stay to Kutum to avoid it using the attack one anyone fighting it. I'm pretty much at the edge, bit further away than I'd like to be(prefer to stay in melee range without pet).
    Anyone farther away from Kutum will cause him to do the attack. You don't even need to be attacking him, just being in long-range distance cause the attack to be an option for Kutum. 
    This includes you people waiting in the tunnel. If you are too lazy to contribute to the fight or if the frame drop is so high that you can't partake, PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD STAY THE F*CK FURTHER BACK IN THE TUNNELS. You are also causing Kutum to choose the ranged kill attack when attacking.
    One more thing: Kutum has a chance after the Vacuum attack to do the ranged kill(even chaining the attack) IF anyone is outside of mid-range. When he starts to prepare the vacuum, the time it takes for a wizard to double teleport away is enough time to wait before moving back. I always double TP away, then start shift running back. I never get hit and I'm always back inside the safe zone to avoid being the reason the attack happens.
    Everything else is fine, but ffs could you people doing kutum stop being little chicken-shits hiding in long-range distance? You're causing issues for the melee fighters, getting some of them killed(I saw a giant killed because of the attack) and slowing the fight down because people need to heal the damage being done when it could be completely avoided. I had to flag on someone this morning because of it after explaining it a few times to people. 2 or 3 ignored it and kept doing shit in ranged - one being an awakened witch. 
    For those of you new to the fight, please stay close to melee regardless of your class/gear score. Learn to dodge or block the attacks. If you end up outside of mid range, get back inside asap. Most likely you will die. It takes a bit of dying to learn the fight properly. Higher than normal DP helps a lot. 260-275 DP is enough to survive hits 280-295 is enough to not care if you get hit and anything higher feels like fighting an awakened boss scroll. Learning the fight is important - regardless of gear, and if you're there on an alt just for aura, dying shouldn't be something you care about, but finishing the fight faster should be so please avoid staying outside of mid range.
    One last thing: those of you that died and come back, while you're trying to get into mid-range you can cause kutum to do the attack. I'd suggest waiting until he dives underground or using some movement skill to get your butts into the save zone. 
    If anyone has anything else to add to this, feel free.

  19. TRNFloyd added a post in a topic Cash Shop Crafted Costumes kill your sales :)   

    This is completely wrong. We're literally just waiting now for the patch to come in where you can wear w.e costume you want AND still get the benefits of another costume. I present to you all(those of you that at least don't check bddatabase for random things every so often anyways), the future(its in KR already, the claw is anyways. Haven't checked the crystals but it would make sense for them to be in considering the claw is in):


    One additional thing:

    Yeah. There's more crystals to look into as well, so I'd suggest doing that. They'll give you a reason soon enough, just gotta wait for that day to come..
    BTW, as you can see with the Treant crystal, they don't break.  
    So, lets look at the options. Say you have the coupon costume: You could get a claw, heat the costume and the claw together to add a slot, then heat each individual piece of the treant costume, combine them(assuming this is how it works since its kind of worded that way), then take the crystal made and put it in the coupon costume.
    That said, you could also do the reverse of this: coupon costume to breakthrough and placed into treant, after the chest has been heated with a claw.
    As I said, there's more than just this. Give the database a look and you'll see. This should be more than enough incentive to grab costumes; whether it be from the marketplace or the cash shop.

  20. TRNFloyd added a post in a topic Don't know what class to choose..   

    Just choose the class that you like and go from there. With enough gear score, class choice is kind of redundant, so its really choose the type of animations and gameplay style that appeals to you the most, learn the class inside and out.
    Clearly from the previous comments its a mixed opinion on what's the most OP class.
    Wizard OP because 100% can 1-shot people,
    Witch OP because lesser version of Wizard,
    Warrior OP because lesser Berserker,
    Ranger OP because fast af attacks and CAN GET TO MARKETPLACE QUICKER THUS OP!!
    Berserker OP because tanky HP-sponge chain-grabber with like ..16 full heals!!! OP!!
    Musa OP because its basically just a REALLY nasty mosquito,
    Maewha basically same thing as Musa,
    Ninja OP because insane combo/damage,
    Kuno OP because same reason as Ninja,
    Dark Knight OP because new hotness, 
    Sorc OP because all the iframes + tons of dmg on a class meant for dealing dmg = OP!!
    Tamer OP because lots of single target, high damage combo skills,
    Valk OP because no one expects a geared Valk, its the butt of a lot of jokes and then, all of a sudden.... BAM!! Your dead because they actually geared a valk and you never thought you'd see the day that would happen..(why so much hate on valks?!) + best farming simulator class = OP!!
    Choose your flavor of OP.
