    All warriors at least block for a second per 10 that I've ever seen, so it might as well be passive too.

    Afaik warriors get 26 ap and 20 dp for 10 seconds for pressing block.

    Witch and Wiz are completely fine.
    PvP wise they still lack escape options and can easily be outpressured, especially by blocking classes who are way harder to punish for being overaggressive.
    PvE wise they have great farming but that really doesn't matter, ranger is probably still more disgusting in that department anyways.
     
    This is coming from a valk.
    Valks have 6 extra defense towards any given target and slightly higher base HP compared to other classes. They also have a 20 dp buff that can be used. Keep in mind we don't even know without testing if that 6 defense and 20 dp are calculated as sheet DP or DR, and my guess is DR.
    Also note that the 6 extra defense towards any given target comes at the cost of a different passive, such as how Musa gets +10 Evasion and +10AP (Attack maybe?) instead.
    Then there's a 25% heal on a 40 second cooldown which is interruptible, does not provide frontal block nor super armor, and has a significant cast time.
    I wonder when people will learn that other classes are not innately tankier than others, and it's their skills+how they are used that set them apart. What makes Valkyrie's tanky so to speak is block. The majority of classes have block now, and valk has one of the clunkier blocks (especially compared to warrior).
    If anything, in this game where all classes will get one combo'd when CC'd, what determines your tankiness is your amount of iframes, superarmors, and frontal blocks since these are what defend against CC.
    Go add up the number of iframes/superarmors/frontalblocks [feasibly used in pvp, with cooldowns in mind] per class and I garuntee you that Valkyrie will not even be close to the top.
    Valks are not a bad class. They're quite strong - but if you think they're tanky then you haven't played one and should most likely study up on how to abuse this.

  6. ebonystallion added a post in a topic Why you don't talk?   

    Not speaking in regards to saying a spot is occupied or anything, but I'll generally PvP without saying anything because speaking after and before killing someone is usually just trash talk or rp.
    If I flag up to kill someone, which isn't super frequent, anyone over the age of 10 should have the logic to understand the reason to be honest.

  7. ebonystallion added a post in a topic Is it worth getting into?   

    Sounds perfect for what you've described.
    Grinding is the #1 way to progress in this game, and you can set up your workers+towns with a gathering+production system in ways that earn you passive income (think rollercoaster tycoon) even when you're not playing. You can absolutely grind at your own pace with breaks in between.
    The only timed activities that matter in this game are node wars and world bosses. Node wars (Guild PvP) happen at a set hour. (8PM Central time for me). World Bosses have predictable yet random spawns (they spawn within a window of ~6ish hours) and are farmed for their gear drops which are best in slot.
    You can look at a community-run discord which has all the spawn timers with the window time ranges for world bosses so you can plan ahead and know which ones come up during your blocks of free time.

  8. ebonystallion added a post in a topic For me the answer is finally...yes   

    I thought we've had this for months now. It's all the events that let new players get top tier gear super easily.
    If you're a serious newbie and determined to progress, starting from level 55 (with like +10 gear) you can get from there to level 58/59 with 450+GS in a month (semi-hardcoreish) easily without good luck.

    Because... someone has 5 Nouver auras that they can't use?

  10. ebonystallion added a post in a topic AP 5~5 vs Attack + 5   

     

    This is more or less what I've noticed when testing it too.
    On a side note, you won't believe how sad I was when I figured out that so many AP buffs or non-sheet AP is actually calculated as +attack.

  11. ebonystallion added a post in a topic We can't have Nouver but newbies can?   

    Wait, what is the issue here?
    Nouver isn't in game. The auras are, just as the knowledge is already.
    They got 5 auras, which are useless until Nouver is released to everyone... Am I missing something?

  16. ebonystallion added a post in a topic If you are going to set a minimum price allow me to list at the market minimum..   

    Player lists one potato for 500m.
    Player pays gold farmer $300.
    Gold farmer buys potato for 500m.
    Gold farmer codes bots and signs them up with guest or starter passes, or even gift passes to gift pearls to help cover the cost.
    Bots consume every grinding spot.
    Gold farmer actively phishes unsuspecting and vulnerable players.
    Gold farmer spams chat in every channel with hundreds of bots.
     
    Yea, there's a reason. Pearl Abyss may make mistakes, but they're not that stupid.

  17. ebonystallion added a post in a topic *Repost* Sorc or Wizard?   

    - better for gvg and node wars? Key difference. Sorcs set up the big kill opportunities, Wizards follow up on the opportunities. A well placed black hole can wipe an entire guild. Violation is great for AoE knockdown in wars. Wizards nuke the groups that get CC'd by sorcs. Sorcs still have super high damage, so don't let my explanation make you think they don't.
    -better for pve? Should be close.
    - better for 1v1s to fight for grinding spots? Should be close. I'd think Sorc is better on its own compared to witch/wiz but it's difficult to tell at this point.
    - better all around? Should be close.

  18. ebonystallion added a post in a topic Market sniping still exist?   

    I've never had a time when I failed to purchase an item and it was never claimed.
    For example, go buy 30 of an item from bidding. Make sure the item is something that people aren't actively seeking.
    Every single one of them is going to be successful. If you fail for any reason, you will see the item disappear from the marketplace before it goes to FFA.
    (People who are buying many of an item for fail stacking will see this).
    There are only the rare, random times in which someone else bids, succeeds, but never buys the item.
     
    It's definitely determined by the people who bid on the item. Whether there can be multiple successful bidders per item is the real question.

    If you invested everything into an item that nobody will buy, that's just poor foresight.

  20. ebonystallion added a post in a topic If you are going to set a minimum price allow me to list at the market minimum..   

    Think of it this way.
    3 days ago, the item's minimum price was ~200m. People listed their items.
    Today, when you try to list the item, the price could have gone up and now the minimum is ~230m.
     
    Your item will not be the first on the list until either the earlier posted items expire or are purchased.
     
    Pro tip, post yours now. If the price continues to go up, people 3 days from now are going to try to post theirs and think the same exact thing as you are right now.
    Waiting a few days is worth a sale for TRI+ gear, especially if it's going to sell for more than those currently listed below the minimum.

    I said it was fixed in Korea.
    You said if it requires a fix then it is an exploit.
    I disagree and can give plenty of examples of things which can be fixed but are not exploits.
    Pretty straight forward.
