    Can someone point this newbie in the right direction?
    ^title (I expect to see some jokes too.)
     
    I'm a returning newbie player and never really did anything post 50 before; I mostly stayed in my 30's and sailed, fished, and bred horses. I've finally decided to try and level to check out PvP etc and I'm now lv 54 almost 55. During my return I just received these latent boss souls: Nouver, Kzarka, etc. Da fuq I do with these? I went to the NPC and nothing is here. Is it some quest? A level requirement perhaps? Could someone fill in the blanks for me and point me in the right direction please?  Thanks.

    Two old questions
    What exp buffs stack? All of them? 
    I've never been the biggest fan of grinding and now I'm even less so with my schedule being so occupied as of late; but I have a ton of value packs and access to that olvia channel and probably something else too. So I'm just curious what all stacks. I just want to get to 55 on a few characters that are at 50. Nothing too major.
    How long does 50-55 take? I'd probably only have 3-4 hours out of the week honestly. Can I get some realistic time tables?

    I feel like every kind if weather should just be an automatic thing that happens randomly regardless of the season. Like how rain works.

    You have the wrong mentality completely. I doubt that person wants to "compete" they just want to level too. The fact that you're there isn't half as much an issue to them as it is to you. Honestly, the selfish notion of MINE MINE MINE is what's making this so difficult for you to grasp.

    You're setting yourself up for failure. Your analogies don't apply, and even if it did there are so many holes in it. Real world income and video game grinding are two massively different things with different rules etc... but i'll humor you. It kind of exists in that form in the real world already. Taxes, Charities, Donations... blah blah. It's why people in the U.S. with higher income get taxed more money than people with less... but ANYWAY, you're telling me a group of 5 is bested by a single person... I guess you're not as strong as you thought. Find another way to do it. Killing the person obviously isn't the answer anymore, and whatever that one person is doing to you, you 5 could just as easily do to him. It's not like that 1 person is having a perfect grind session. They're getting diminished xp too. Find a new way to grind at the location, that one person has just as much right to be there as you do. You shouldn't be able to prevent them from leveling up.

  9. Sidhe added a post in a topic There is no pleasing everyone here, it's time to pick a side, if you want to drive away all the TOP guilds continue transforming the game into a carebear-paradise.   

    Lol... "Top". That's part of the problem. The amount of self-entitlement in that first paragraph is just staggering; nothing is exclusively yours. I keep seeing this same argument and it's starting to become a bit funny... Do you really think you actually own these spots? It ain't yours lol. The "Top" guilds seem to think they're more important that other players. False. As. Fk. To be honest, by definition... It seems like a "Top" guild would be a minority within the game and thus changes that cater to them and them alone would cause the game to lose even MORE players, right? Instead of making silly threads about you potentially quitting, try and find a better solution.

    Your problem is that you assume that you HAVE to kill someone. Stop being stupid. You have other options. You're not the only person who wants to grind or level. You're strong? Good job. Someone else wants to get strong too. Who are you to determine who can and can not become strong? No player should have that ability. Quit being a selfish nutbag and you won't have the issue of losing karma. A game company has to please large groups of players. Quit assuming that you're the only person who's important. You whine about change that only affects you, while completely ignoring what it's doing for the other group of players. Game devs have to consider how the change will effect everyone. Maybe this was their goal? To give everyone a chance to level and advance without the struggle of being setback by another player? There's a reason this change was made, and that reason is not to be a bully and make the game more frustrating from you. Take a different point of view, and realize that everyone is not like you. Not everyone wants to prove themselves in a contest of "who's the strongest". Some people might just want to level so they can enjoy content later down the road. Exclusively hogging a grinding location is bad game design and will inevitably diminish the longevity of the game for certain players. Those players are just as important as you are; not more important, but no less important either. Don't delude yourself into thinking otherwise. Node wars are where you can prove your strength, stake your claims, and have those bragging rights. Efficient grinding spots are not, and should not be that place.

    I'm referring specifically to players frustrated with being killed (sometimes repeatedly) and losing XP. Apparently at higher levels that much xp loss is hours and hours of grinding? I'm not at such a level yet because I'm like you and indulge in everything the game has to offer; but I also know I don't have the time nor patience to regrind 10+ hours for a single percentage of xp if i'm killed by another player. Due to that amount of time It would take to get that xp back, such a loss really is a hindrance. I'd take being griefed and harassed over regrinding for that amount of time any day. I wish they would implement that Karma 2.0 maybe that would help.
    I think the same problem will still exist wouldn't it? It would just take longer for the griefer to get back to the grind spot, no?

    I can understand that thought process, but more than anything I feel it's important that a company provide a chance for everyone to advance. While that chance is available for everyone, the other complaint I also see is people angry about not being able to grind because they're primarily solo and some group is hogging a spot or some group is more powerful than their group and they keep being killed. In my opinion no player should be able to hinder another player's ability to advance through a game. Most would call it a feature but it's not like the game itself is what's preventing that person from leveling up. Even at this point the logical solution in today's community "git gud scrub" blah blah... but still it's worth considering a company that makes an MMO has to try and please a LARGE group of players. The PvE or the PvP groups like to assume that their style of play is all that matters and that couldn't be more wrong. Such a thought process by a game dev would inevitably lead to a game's failure This patch is just their attempt to try and find a feasible solution. Rather than staying stagnant and reverting back to the old way which honestly wasn't fair to a certain group of players a change did (and still does) need to be made. Is this change the answer? I don't feel it is, because -like I stated before- I agree that being able to abuse the Karma system is pretty screwed up. Again -like I stated before- the best course of action by everyone would be to find a secondary solution instead of just saying "fk this bs man blah blah" and going back to the old way. You might be happy with that, but what about the people who aren't? Why would you consider your play style or opinion more valid than someone else? This could also be said for the other group, but the other group isn't the one complaining at the moment, and currently don't have the motivation or reason to ponder a new solution. 
    -Disclaimer: When I say "you" I mean the angry players. Not you specifically. I'd like to avoid an angry conversation and keep this civil.

    To all the angry players:

    Let me start by saying idc about the change or how it was before. It's completely irrelevant to me; I find myself to be a neutral player of sorts. So after reading like 4 pages of rage... The general consensus is that PvP players are butthurt because the players they kill don't lose EXP and have nothing to lose? Mk, I understand but... What the heck possess you (the enraged players) to think that any grinding spot is exclusively yours? Now you can't forcibly hog a grinding spot... Well that's a dang shame. You hate PvE players for wanting partake in their PvE only gameplay, so you PK them so that you can partake in the same PvE they want to partake in... lol the irony. Anyway, now the carebear PvE players can grief you harder...? but isn't the same applicable? Can't you just do the same thing? Couldn't you also just... idk... NOT kill the person? I mean... Is sharing and partying not a feasible solution for some of you? Idk, I have no problems doing it. Truthfully at the end of the day you were hindering some players from advancing through the game; that's bad game design and quite honestly -imo- makes everyone who's angry about this change sound like a selfish prick. Instead of being angry about the change, how about trying to come up with a potential solution that could please both parties. So basically your options now are:
    -Kill the person, Lose Karma, Rage, Repeat?
    -Not kill the person, Keep Karma, Grind it up separetly, get lower XP
    -Party with the person, Keep Karma, Grind it up, get xp
    Well... Good luck. Idk what to tell you. It sucks that you can't fend off griefers anymore and I do think something needs to be done so that it can't be abused, but the previous system is unfair to people who just wanted to grind. It sucks being on the receiving end of some BS doesn't it? Try to find some other solution that can appease both parties, because newsflash! You, your guild, your small clique of friends aren't the only ones playing the game. It's not all about you.

    I did see one post suggesting decreased XP within specific Karma ranges. Is it a good solution? Meh. But at least that person TRIED to help instead of just whining. More players should be like him/her. I'll try to ponder on some solutions and post one when I have a more definitive idea.

    TL:DR
    Stop being a baby and try to help come up with a new solution that can please both groups of players instead of just raging on the forum.

  14. Sidhe added a post in a topic Xbox One Elite Wireless Controller   

    Yeah, $150. Not worth for bdo imo.
    I have one, but I don't use it for BDO. If you just want a controller just go with a cheap one. It's a good, quality, solid controller but I don't recommend a controller for a game like BDO anyway. I suppose you could make it work, but I feel you'd be limiting yourself at the more engaging activities. If you just want the controller just to have the controller like I did, then by all means go ahead and purchase it. It's a great piece of hardware Just don't buy it with the intent of solely using it for BDO, or any MMO that doesn't have controller friendly setups. I'm not sure how good or bad BDO's controller option is, but I've never bothered with it in the options. Good luck.

  15. Sidhe added a post in a topic How does your PC run the game?   

    Ended up building a PC, so I don't use the laptop I posted about earlier anymore.
    i7-6700k @4.0 ghz, 2 GTX 980ti, 16gb ram
    3440x1440 res, max settings, high-end mode on.
    60 outside and in towns. 30-50 during very hectic and crowded guild wars. It'd probably be higher, but I forgot to consider the monitor refresh rate when I was buying my setup. The one i'm using is only 60hz. Silly me.
