    Nice! Ill download this! Thinking the failstack statistic is a bit out of date though with all the changes they made.

    Numbers would be good, it'd make it so much easier to test hidden stats as well.

  3. Anneturtle added a post in a topic I just realized that I don't play in group in BDO because ...   

    I've said it before as a joke but I secretly do think it's true that the developers of this game really hated party content in other mmo's and decided to make an mmo where you can literally solo the entire game without every being dependent of others. As the others above me said, it's not impossible to do group stuff but you need to go look for it yourself. Like in other sandbox games like Minecraft, Ark Survival Online or Rust, the game is only as much fun as you make it. You need a group of friends to just hang out with and do shit together that you could also do alone, but is more fun with other people just because you are less lonely that way ;). For example, my fellow guildies and I used to go fishing together (active fishing). Which can actually be fun if you hang out on discord together while u do it.
    I do have to say though, they seem to do their best to punish grouping up as much as possible. First of all the exp nerf when you are in a party. Is there any other game that does that? I think most other games give an exp boost per party member but BDO rather has you grind solo and kill anyone that wants to be your friend. Also, boss scrolls. The Ancient Relic Crrystal scroll, it used to give everyone a guaranteed memory fragment per boss drop. Now they nerfed that greatly, so that you are lucky if you even get a memory fragment 50% of the time, so you might as well solo relic scrolls unless you do them in bulks (like most people do now).
    For me, at the moment, my guild chat and its guild missions or occasional boss scrolls together are the only group content I got (I don't PVP yet, don't have the gear for anything besides arena random casual battles atm). having an active guild chat is enough for me though, since the solo content keeps me busy.

    Just checked it for u, I can't force my PRI nouver to DUO. With this new system it seems like it will be PRI forever. Just enchanted a krea kriegmesser from 0 to +15 with 30 blackstones. -----in hell, that never happened to me before. I came to the forum to check if MAYBE I got crazy lucky, but nope. I guess it's back to reblath, if that one is still the same as before.

  7. Anneturtle added a post in a topic Power level trade (help)   

    I've only started getting into trading 2 days ago and I just go Velia -> Heidel -> Glish -> Keplan -> Calpheon and back. I'm not an expert so I can't say if it's the most efficient way, but for me it works since it also allows me to semi-afk and study for exams haha. With this run I hardly need to change channel as well and all distances are above 500. I do skip the trade nodes inbetween btw, I just trade at the towns/cities. Gonna take a look at the distances of those inbetween nodes and might add them to my run if they are over 500 both ways. I think if I accumulate my time I've traded about 4 hours in total now and am skilled 5. I get a standard 7% exp per turn in at the moment, no matter what I trade or between what cities it is so I don't think the level of the item u trade matters with this kind of NPC trading, neither does the distance above 500. Of course it could be a different story with crates!

  8. Anneturtle added a post in a topic xentago joins equilibrium on his alt account and farms and reports himself   

    Seriously they have done so much to avoid guild harassment. U used to be able to declare on any guild even if they weren't a pvp guild at all. Harassment was actually an issue back then, with big bully pvp guilds declaring on carebear guilds and making it nearly impossible for them to enjoy the game in a PvE way. They fixed that. If u don't want to be hunted, just don't be a war guild so he can't declare on you. Drive that guy into deep negative karma if he keeps flagging on you, it's not like you will lose anything from dying. If you do wanna be a war guild, then u should suck it up because this is just how the PVP content is in this game. Don't like it? Go play tera or something.

    So why exactly is the server being unstable being ignored as a known issue?

    I was on Balenos 2, now balenos 4 have the same issues. They are a bit less than right after log-in, but it still takes about 30 seconds for me to load the trading NPC screen (NA region).

    The lag is terrible, getting loading screens, can't talk to NPCs. Fix server stability please. It's as bad as it gets.

  13. Anneturtle added a post in a topic Tired of server problems?   

    I quit doing afk stuff overnight because either:
    - my autoloop gets canceled because of a random loading screen
    - I get kicked out of the game overnight
    I  do know that the last one can also be my internet failing, I do have terrible Belgian shit internet after all, but it's always surprising to me how I absolutely never DC during daytime or evening, but always DC when I sleep. It's like a -----in curse.
    I never had the loading screen trouble on EU region btw. Now that I play NA region I get it a lot more and mostly during times the Americans wake up and populate the server. Seems to be a capacity problem indeed, specifically for NA servers.

  14. Anneturtle added a post in a topic Will BDO succeed?   

    Like I said even when you are casual you can reach 56 in a week. You are talking as if reaching 56 is an achievement lol, it's the easiest thing in the game. My guild is filled with ultimate casuals who are 56 but don't even know what a node is yet. reaching 56 you do even when you don't even try to level and just casually play quests here and there. I'm a casual player and have 2 characters that are level 56. Don't tell me that 1.5 million players aren't 56 because they are 'casual' lol. Most of them aren't 56 because they quit the game within the first year of its release. I was there in july when they released the value pack and literally the servers bled to death because of the major p2w everyone claimed it to be. I could grind at sausans at prime time main spot without anyone ever coming to contest because there was no one left! The game has 'revived' somehow but it's nowhere near as crowded as it used to be. The only reason it seems crowded is because everyone is hurled up in Heidel or Mediah. Go past these areas and  you will hardly bump into a player anymore.

  15. Anneturtle added a post in a topic Will BDO succeed?   

    This screenshot should say enough, right? Considering you can get a char to 56 within 24 hours, a week if u play casually, I don't think this game is that succesful. Only about 6% of the population actually plays beyond level 56. Of course there are some people that keep their char at 49 to avoid pvp, but I think that's only a small amount that won't increase the % significantly. Also take into account that one account can have multiple chars of 56+ so it can be even less actual people. With this I am assuming of course that 'adventurer population' is the amount of accounts, not the amount of characters.
