    We'll see about that when it comes out. Not like everyone wasn't going to roll a warden anyway.
    Look what happened here when DK came out in March.

    If relogging doesn't fix it, I highly recommend a support ticket.

  4. AlnilamE added a post in a topic Keep lifeskilling on main or make alts?   

    Now that the only life skills that use energy are gathering and farming (and fishing if you want to), it's perfectly feasible to do it all on one character.
    So it's up to you.

    I have found that the border of safe zones is not clear.  If you go out until you are just outside, you have to take several steps to go back in.

    I wasn't level 45 yet before they made the change, so I missed on this "more polite" period you reminisce about. 
    But since I reached PvP level on any of my toons, the only times I've been attacked and/or killed, the person who attacked me didn't say anything, and some times I wasn't even aware that they were there (or I was just running by on my way to hand in a quest).  The times I've encountered people while grinding that have talked to me, we were able to sort things out amicably to our mutual satisfaction.

    "A simple way to make Rough stone, Weeds & Logs a little more plentiful" <-- Go out and gather them?
    That's how I fix my material shortages.
    There are no stack limits in this game, so no reason to sell certain items to make room in storage if they are things you are going to need later.

    I guess I need to start saving money then! I'd love a TET Dande. :-)

    It applies to a wagon as well.

  12. AlnilamE added a post in a topic Is it possible to only buy gear?   

    Another thing to keep in mind is that if you have a grinding partner and you set up loot to send any green and above items to Special Deals, that saves you a lot of inventory and you only have to worry about trade-in/junk items and "General Trade" items. Most of my characters have between 60-90 inventory slots, and only my fisher has more than 150.
    Weight is more important for grinding and you can get the Loyalty weight increases and train strength (and as someone recommended, the storage maid)
    I've been slacking on the buying front (well, more like getting side-tracked), but I have my ranger set up with TRI gear and working on my Tamer now, as I try to get the Ranger to 57.
    I'm always going to be behind the gear curve with 7 characters to clothe and feed, but that doesn't bother me. TRI is what you need for Valencia and I've not even scratched that zone really (or really done any questing in Mediah other than getting all my characters to 56).

    Oh yeah! I forgot about that.
    Should be a nice chunk. Also, some compensations for delayed maintenance and what not.

  14. AlnilamE added a post in a topic Is it possible to only buy gear?   

    Well, if you take your time to get situated, you will find that money accumulates reasonably fast if you are not blowing it up on enchants.  You can probably wrap up things in Calpheon, see what you can do with your contribution points (getting workers at nodes with rare drops is a good way to make passive income), get some more knowledge and go from there.
    Ranger weapons are pretty easily obtainable from the MP.  Grunil armor is sought after by all classes, so it may be a bit harder. You may want to use Heve as a stepping stone if you find you need something slightly better than what you have at the moment. 
    Once you get to Mediah, you'll probably do Manes, Helms, Elrics and Sausans and you'll be 56 and ready for your awakening.
    (When you hit 55, there is a quest at Sarma Outpost called "Combat Promotion" that will send you to kill many things and then give you a chunk of XP as a reward. Look for the three otters at the top of the tower once you are 55).
    With a bit of patience, you can gear up pretty well while having fun doing whatever aspect of the game you enjoy.

  15. AlnilamE added a post in a topic Is it possible to only buy gear?   

    Well, if you are on NA and you have 462 million, you can start by buying a Kzarka Longbow (if you are sticking with your ranger).  There are 10 on the MP at the moment.
    I'm not sure what your gear is right now, but if you are going for Grunil armor, that may take a pre-order, or at least keeping an eye on the MP and trying to get it every time you get a notification.
    If you have at least 100 DP, I would definitely start with getting a better weapon and sub-weapon, then move to armor.  TRI seems to be a good compromise where it gives you enough defense to get through even Valencia (with the possible exception of the dungeons) and it's still affordable enough.
    If you are sticking with your ranger, you can get a TRI or even TET awakening weapon from the MP fairly easily.

    Yes.
    Although some of the higher level accessories are going to be hard to get.

  17. AlnilamE added a post in a topic How do servers/channels work in BDO?   

    The server groups are mostly there to organize the Node Wars (the Node wars for each region happen on the _1 channel of the server group named after said region)

  18. AlnilamE added a post in a topic Almost completely stopped receiving attendance rewards.   

    This may not be what's happening to you, but the way the reward works in this round is:
    8pm comes around and the reward is dropped into your inventory wherever you are.
    BUT! You only get the calendar pop-up and stamp once you go into a safe zone.  Or if you log into an alt that is in a safe zone.

  19. AlnilamE added a post in a topic The economy is dieing   

    Oddly enough, I actually have some statistics, because I wrote down shards and concentrated stone sales last time we had this discussion.
    **This is NA data**
    Total sales of Hard Shards:
    March 4: 868,255
    April 28: 1,120,585
    Difference:  252,330  or 4,350.5/day
    Total sales of Sharp Shards:
    March 4: 743,137
    April 28: 967,848
    Difference:  224,711 or 3,874.3/day
    Total sales of Concentrated Armor Stones:
    March 4: 445,420
    April 28: 602,557
    Difference:  157,137 or 2,709.3/day
    Total sales of Concentrated Weapon Stones:
    March 4: 318,179
    April 28: 429,465
    Difference: 111,286 or 1,918.7/day
     
    That looks pretty healthy to me, considering it's a rare resource and most of the ones gathered are probably not sold at all.
    But so does the flow of acquiring these resources. If there are more people killing things, more black stones will drop. If there are more people gathering, so will more shards.  And so on.

    Well, good for you! You got lucky.
    Meanwhile, I have 97 breeds at the range where you can "quite easily get a T7 with 2 T4s" and only 16 of those turned out to be T7s.
    I got 35 T6 males in the meantime...

  21. AlnilamE added a post in a topic Power level trade (help)   

    Thank you. I will probably take a more easy going approach to start with, as I'm not in a rush. Plus I also need to get my alts to Prof 1 when it comes the time to level everyone in trading.
    I've done the trading quests and they are fun. Just sometimes you have to hand them in out of the way (I'm looking at you, Ilyia Trade Manager!)

  22. AlnilamE added a post in a topic Power level trade (help)   

    Well, it was more in the sense of getting on my elephant and riding all over the place. My main trader is Pro 4, I think, so I have a way to go.  There's just a lot of other stuff to do in game when I'm actually at the computer (and afk-ing too much while trading got my elephant killed. :-( )
    I may have a few spreadsheets relating to BDO as well...

    What are the average daily sales for each of those items in the last week?
    How do those numbers compare to a month ago?
    How about six months ago?
    Just because something is sold out when you get to the MP doesn't mean nobody is selling it.  These were always items that people would mostly farm for themselves and not to sell.

  25. AlnilamE added a post in a topic Instant Accel & Sprint Nerf   

    What's the change in the probability of getting those two skills on a horse?  And at what tier?
    And what about Drift?
    Because I really don't have many horses that have those two skills (never mind those and Drift).
