    No, you can't. At least when I tried last Summer, it wouldn't let me relist at a lower price even though the price kept going down, down...

  2. Eireochd added a post in a topic What "secret" game mechanic probably doesn't exist but you could believe it does because it's so BDO?   

    This actually was a mechanic in DIKUmuds. Each mob maintained a 'kill list' of the players that killed it, and how many times.
    Since memory was at a premium back then (and everything was server-side) the list was only 20 players long. So the trick was go do something else for a while, and let other players bump you off the list.
     
    The "get up high to enchant" thing is interesting, as I've always gone near the water (low points, obviously) and I've had terrible luck enchanting.
    And I'm also convinced your zodiac sign affects a lot more than just cozying up to vendors.

  3. Eireochd added a post in a topic Would you pay for a premium service with high quality guides, a profit dashboard, dedicated support and an app?   

    I guess a fair question is, how much of the information you'll be providing to others for a fee was provided to you for free?

    I dunno.... GW2 and SL have the same limited size selection.
    Have you tried the 'Crops' under 'Optimization Options'?

  5. Eireochd added a post in a topic Which Class Should I Reroll to?   

    If you're into buying your gear, there's a much better selection of weapons for Maehwa. Enchanted Shortswords are rare and more expensive.

  6. Eireochd added a post in a topic Custom resolution?   

    Short answer, you can't.
    The game needs to maintain the proper proportions, or things look really wonky. Basically, you can't split pixels. Especially with all the 3D stuff going on, the game depends on standard screen sizes to make things work.
    What you can do is choose a smaller windowed standard screen size that allows your task bar to show, or maybe set your task bar so it appears when you mouse over it.

  7. Eireochd added a post in a topic NINJA Gear question   

    You get +5 AP from the Grunil helmet and gloves, and +150 health from the armor and boots. Heve armor and boots gives you +250 health. But you get another +2 AP for the full Grunil set, so mixing the sets gives you 2 less AP for 100 more health. If you feel squishy, then the mix is a good option. If you're not always close to dying, then go for the extra attack power.
    Press 'P', and look at the lines in the middle, on the left. You want Attack Speed and Critical Hit Chance to read '5'. Play with your gear and crystals until they do. For farming drops, you want Luck at 5, Movement helps as well, to get from cluster to cluster . I'm playing with Casting Speed since we have so many AoE spells, but I can't decide yet. 5 seems to give quite a boost over 4, though, so be sure Attack and Crit are maxed....
    For PvP, you'll want to worry about the Resistances, as well, but there's only so many crystals you can wear.

  8. Eireochd added a post in a topic Feedback from freetrial, combat needs a revamp   


     
    No, I'm afraid she's right. I spent ten years coding a "challenging" game, and in the end, I had less than a dozen regular players.
    It's what I said before; BDO is targeted at the left side of the bell curve, and that's probably smart. Goodness, the same strategy made a game show buffoon president of the USA!
    Those of us with brains are smart enough to find our own fun in BDO.

  9. Eireochd added a post in a topic Feedback from freetrial, combat needs a revamp   

    So, you're saying BDO can't be better than other games?
    Or, is this an "everybody does it!" excuse?

  10. Eireochd added a post in a topic Alt question   

    I'd say try Kunoichi. Lots of mobility, with great animations. Quite a bit of AoE. A lot, in fact. Not so tanky, but since you're always moving, you don't get hit much.

    I remember my first time going to kill goblins, and constantly looking over my shoulder for the Elite Fighters. They were scary!
    Now, you can sneeze and they fall over dead.
    The OP likely represents one lone poster among thousands who deleted the free trial because the came appears to be for wusses.
    Seriously, I think they need to give people something to sink their teeth into right from the start. The game was fun when I started.

  12. Eireochd added a post in a topic So I started my week long trial...   

    I think that's a fair summation.
    Many of the of the people with legitimate complaints are well-spoken and incisive.
    Given the "end-game" features luck over skill or knowledge, it's pretty obvious BDO is being targeted to the left side of the bell curve.

  13. Eireochd added a post in a topic So I started my week long trial...   

    Actually, I think it might be the opposite. I think here we have a smart player who is used to figuring out how things work on his own. But BDO isn't designed for that, and the documentation is non-existent. Recent changes have not been an improvement.

    So you concocted some wild prediction and get all snarky when one agrees with your version of a possible future?
    Oh, yeh, I can see it's going to fun having you around.

    Less than 4.9% can enjoy Kamasylvia!
     
    Really? Why, that's less than the number of forum posts that imply there's intelligent life on Earth. Could there be a connection? Inquiring minds want to know....

    I get less? How do you figure that? I don't see how adding more to the game will give me less.

  18. Eireochd added a post in a topic Do I even need +15 armor?   

    A while back, just to test this, I went to do a quest at the Giants with 16DP. I had to use two HP potions.
    If you are nimble, and don't just stand there like a practice dummy, I think all you need up to level 50 is +5. I'd still use Grunil for the AP, though Taritas for accuracy is an option if you have a Big Sword.
    As you move into Mediah, though, you'll find the elite mobs will give you a hard time, especially those at Helms. By then you'll want that +15, and maybe something better (though, I'm still using +15 at level 56, and still no pots).

  19. Eireochd added a post in a topic PVP Is Completely Broken. Admit it.   

    The bottom line is this: despite the concerns of many players, the game is working just fine for Kakao.

    Well, there you go, then. Guess you're going to have a high DP alt.

  21. Eireochd added a post in a topic Ultimate Grunil +15 vs. Roaring Magical ?   

    What it really boils down to is, how much accuracy do you already have? Musa is not a 'close your eyes and push the button" class. If you need more, then wear the Roaring while you try to score better Grunil or high accuracy accessories.

    What's with all the low post counts? Is a server outage what it takes to get you players to show your faces on the forum?

  23. Eireochd added a post in a topic Character creator, head size option.   

    Guys may be happy with the head size, but for women, no. We don't want to be pinheads. Given how great the chars look otherwise, this is really a jarring mistake. European women have head to body ratios of 6.5 to 7.5, Eastern women are often in the 5.5 to 7 range. Especially since many of the presets favor making an Oriental girl, this is a problem in making things realistic. 
    The legs, particularly the lower legs, are too long as well, but it's not as unsightly to have long legs as a tiny head.
     
    And yes, NUMBERS would be great for trying a length, then putting it back if it wasn't better.
    The hilights for skin choices and the colors are sometimes invisible, as well. (As long as someone has the file open.... might as well fox everything!)

    Agreed.
    At least give us a check box to turn them off.
    (That might even be legally required in the USA. No one likes spam in their mailbox. )

  25. Eireochd added a post in a topic How to best use starting fund?   

    I suggest you buy a set of green Grunil armor. Stick some blue stones in it. Then, get the best weapon you can find. Likely a Duo Rosar or Duo Krea, depending on your class. If you have enough left, get a decent off-hand. This will make grinding easy up to at least level 50. By then, you'll feel 80 million isn't that much.
