    Finally!  Exciting news.  I'll get to making some silver for enhancing.
    (The Vediant is the gauntlet. )
    Here are the Green and Blue awakening weps (respectively)
    The actual "weapon", however, is the glove/gauntlet.

    Maybe not, if "Equipment Tailoring Coupons" were what we had to use?  Sounds expensive, though.

    Lmfao, I seriously just woke up.  Looked at the calendar, counted back three spaces.  Dumb just-out-of-sleep brain went "3."  You're right.  Two weeks, then!  Either way, totally understandable that the timeframe got a little mixed up.  Laughing right now over my double mess-ups though.
    Thanks for calling that one out though, I'd hate to have realized that later rather than sooner!
    Either way, you're fine by me at this point.  Aren't causing any major trouble anymore as far as I know, I respect that you listened when they asked you to stop spamming.  Just hoping this doesn't spiral out of control any more than it has to, the article might've helped more than it hurt.  We'll have to see, I guess.

    Yeah, realized the initial typo.  Was referencing January before that, my bad there.  I'd meant March with the "three weeks".

    Looks like your charts are off, admiral.

    Wasn't the 11th though, was actually the 10th.  3 weeks to the day.
    -Edit- Ah, I typo'd.  I meant March.

    You didn't show up in the "Welcome" messages at all, which have been functioning since mid-January, which prompted that.  If I'm mistaken about that, then sorry, I don't have admin privileges if those can actually check how long someone was in.  The bot may have missed you or something.  Given Discord's recent bugs all over the place it's entirely possible.  So, sorry if that's a mistaken belief, I'll take that into account.
    It definitely wasn't a week ago, though.  It was 3 weeks ago.  January (March, lmao, was talking about January too much) 11th is when you were banned.
    And yeah, some people are extremely over-the-top and paranoid about this.  I can definitely agree with that, some people have been extremely cringy and obnoxious about it.  Like I said, I've kept my head down and haven't done much of anything.  Trust me, I really don't care about the stuff you've done on a personal level beyond it being mildly annoying—Which is whatever.  It's more of the long-term effect you seem to be causing that's concerning me.  If it all dies down, it'll be fine.  I just wanted to state my concerns, please don't try to read into it more than it has to be.
    And no, I'm really not imagining this changing things.  You have copycats now, dude.  I don't know if you understand the impact of the things you're having but some people are going far enough to say some pretty heinous shit that's definitely against the ToS.  You really aren't involved in the community so you don't know all that goes down, it'd be nice if you could at least try to understand where some of us are coming from and not throw us all under the bus with the people who are generally just as annoying in their own way.

    I'm not here to argue, or flail around limply, or any of that kind of stuff.  For the most part I've left this topic alone because the sad truth is: This wouldn't have spiraled out of control because people wouldn't stop feeding into it.  That's the only reason all of this has happened.  Certain members ran around early on like headless chickens when the rest of us stayed silent and said that PKing isn't against the rules, he can't be banned for it.  Where the issues came in was the spamming in chat to disrupt organized events (in safezones).  While annoying and disruptive at times, he's promised to stop spamming "DEATH TO RPers" when others are roleplaying.  As far as I'm concerned if he stops doing that and if that's all that was happening—then it'd be "whatever".
    Now what some don't know is that he has been extremely dedicated to this from the beginning, for whatever reason.  He was a member of one of our communities for god knows how long just sitting there in silence looking for people to go after.  Maybe he was just bored, but sending a bunch of the people from his guild to try to get information about RP events, taunt, and spam was also pretty low.  That is more of what most think was going too far.  Nobody gives a shit about the PKing beyond it being a minor annoyance.
    To give an idea of a timeline of this, we configured a bot in one of the roleplay discords to announce people joining so that we could properly welcome them and help them get settled in mid-January.  He had joined before that.  I feel like the entirety of the story isn't being told here.  This guy's obsessed with roleplayers and roleplay in general, to an honestly confusing degree.  While flattering—it's really goddamn weird too.  Who cares that much?  Unless he's been a roleplayer this entire time who got annoyed at the community, which is possible I suppose.  We certainly aren't perfect.
    Regardless—It's run it's course, and even those who have stayed silent about this and tried to let it die are getting tired.  Some people have even gone as far to say that they don't want to roleplay anymore due to the newfound stigma and knowing they may be targeted for showing up to an RP event or even just roleplaying publicly.  And it isn't just Dremlock anymore.  It's that other people are joining in day-after-day and articles like this really just make it worse for those of us who kept our heads down and tried to ignore it and weren't so booty-bothered over the PKing.  It would be nice if this could just end and we could all respectively move on.  Wishful thinking, I know, but it's getting tiring and less-and-less fun every day it drags on.  It's been 3 weeks now.
    This is all I'm adding to the topic because, as I said, I just want this to die.  I'm not here to continue this, just to share my perspective of things and leave it to go whatever direction it will.  Hopefully I'll be able to continue writing stories with people and enjoying the game in this particular way without others somehow finding a problem with that.
    If this is how RP worked in every single instance across the planet—sure, I can understand the attitude.  But when people base their entire view of something on a meme (which is -----ing hilarious, by the way, we reference it all the time) it shows.  So, I'd like to inform.
    On the topic of roleplay—usually moreso than not, us roleplayers are not a "special protected class" of people.  We're most often in fact entirely ignored by the moderation community and game design in of itself (we're lucky to get /me commands), which is something we're used to.  We all understand very well that we aren't the majority and that the game cannot revolve around us.  Yes, some people are self-entitled and think the game should revolve around them, but you get that in every single sub-community of a game.  Up until now I was willing to not insult anyone's intelligence and assume they could understand that.  But, no good deed goes unpunished.
    Yes, some RP scenes are very bad.  And very cringey.  There's no denying that.  But the majority of RPers in this game aren't in it for the things you stated above.  Most are looking to do what RP is about at its core—Writing a story with others.  That's it.  No need for reading further into it because for most there isn't much else there.  People want to create characters and storylines and write with eachother in a mutual setting.  Once you start ascribing anything else to it, you're getting into sub-sections of roleplay.
    RPers sometimes even make fun of other RPers.  We aren't some religious order swearing to uphold principles.  Again, thought that'd be clear but evidently it isn't to some.

  8. Maevynn added a post in a topic A Pet idea [Fairies]   

    I actually like this idea, I love fairies! (It also works especially because fairies exist in BDO.)
    However, our idea of "fairy" and BDO's idea of "fairy" might be... very different things:

    More flat-footed shoe options!
    It'd just be nice, is all!  I personally am not a fan of high-heels, it would be nice to have some cash shop shoes that don't have them.  Even just a few!
    I used the default shoes on my Kunoichi and it was fine, but with Dark Knight I get no such luxury.

    Nope, not just for combat!  All emotes/actions/etc. have the new voices to sift through, I only recorded the combat sounds because they were the most easily heard.  As you can imagine, the video would've been much longer if I did them all.

    Option 1 is the default/current voice option for every class.  So yep, we get to keep them!

  12. Maevynn added a post in a topic New Voice Options in KR   

    Some of 'em are definitely better than others, but yeah there's a noticeable difference.  Still, more options never hurts!
    I really prefer the new voices over the default witch one though, can't stand that squeal-y/obnoxious voice.
    If you listen, the old voices are there... They're the "1" option for every class.
    I'm biased because I hate the witch voice with a burning passion, so I want these ASAP.

    Some of them are a little awkward, but that's to be expected with a lot of options I suppose!  Others are pretty nice, I think the male options shine here in terms of variety/quality.
    Some pitch up/down very well, which is nice.  For instance, a few of the average-toned male ones pitch down well for Berserker.  Obviously some others pitch up well for Tamer.  (If you're going for the 'young girl' kind of voice.  But the newly added voices are definitely adult voices.)
    I do like them though!  They definitely went for a diverse range of voice styles.

    New Voice Options in KR
    Horrible video quality, was hoping it'd be better (17 minutes!  I just wanted it to process faster ) but this is my first time uploading a video in like 4 years, so I'll do better next time.
    Thankfully this time around, the sound's the most important!
