 I agree, can't nerf Pirates or other drops because that's how people who are just hitting 55 are going to catch up.  Chimeras is a special issue because it was screwing lower level players who were right around 45 and so killable but clearly couldn't defend themselves.  Players on my server are slowly moving into Valencia as they get their node levels up and learn their 'Rotations'.  I started pretty much exclusively grinding Valencia at all Pri because for various reasons I just thought it was better - mostly more fun.  Valencia does not require 190Ap, I was dealing with more like 130 at that time and i could still kill things without dying.  Learning your rotation is also a huge part of it, Valencia areas were slow exp for me until I picked the node I like the most and found a rotation that was most efficient and rewarding for me and then as you get better and better at that the money and exp increase correspondingly.  Sausans is really only useful now past 57 if you're soloing and that lets groups of 55s come in and push that guy out, those guys with lvl 12 sausans nodes are hoiding on but most of the rest are moving on too from what I have seen.  I think it'll probably resolve itself in a few weeks.  Just like pre nerf pirates were new and fun and not nearly as efficient as Sausans, but my grinding buddies and I kept doing them and eventually - still pre nerf - we got good at the rotation and then it was efficient and fun at the same time.

Well I was saying 180+ because of very efficient solo, it's very possible with lower than that, I'm able to kill with 143 AP as a Warrior, plus higher AP = more likely to win if someone tries to push you out :D I duo'd with a 170 AP musa at Bashims and it was fine, if I get my AP just a bit higher, I can probably solo (especially with Warrior's new amazing pve sustain from skill add-ons) but it won't be efficient as solo Pirates. I don't really die in Valencia if I know when to dodge & put my shield up at good timing, and I only have like 235 DP (working on DUO armor)

I am usually listed at top 15 or so wealthiest on my server at all hours of the day I have never had to grind an area nor have I needed to kill anyone for a "rotation" lol If you play all aspects of this game you will make tons of money without grieving others to do so. Albeit Im a bit slower on progression(because I am not hard core caring about it) I am not hurting for money. If they nerf money then maybe people will figure out there are other aspects of the game besides spending all day/night grinding like they are playing Diablo instead.

I'm not saying there aren't other ways to make money, there certainly are, but it has been confirmed by devs and KR players that grinding is the most efficient / profitable way to make silver. I know someone who's like top 1-3 in 8 different things every single day including wealth, which proves there's obviously plenty of ways to make money, it all just depends how profitable you want it to be :D 

I will open my wallet the moment the long-tailed tit and the snow wolf dog get added to the pets!  : )

YESYEYES SAME, give me the husky please ;-;

Also XP isnt why they are grinding usually its for money only. If its XP they will group with you, if its for money they will try to kill you or you have to pvp just to get some quest updates, they want the money they make all to themselves.

The only reasons to group with someone for exp is either you're helping them, can't efficient solo or duo, or want a full group so that you don't get pushed out by another group of 5. If you can solo or duo (solo is best), you make far more exp than in a group. Same thing with money, again, assuming you can efficiently solo or duo, since you get all the profit. Both exp and money as solo vs. group comparison have been tested personally as well as from a friend

Wealth rankings are based on current liquid value, not asset. And even then, they are only based on the individual channel you're currently on (not channel group: IE Velia 1 & Velia 2). If the 14 people above you all spend enough money that drops their current liquid value below your own, they will, in real time drop below you the next update tick and that will be reflected on the leaderboards.

Having your name on the wealth ranking leaderboards is literally not an indication of anything actually related to real wealth or account wealth value.

They dress to attract the attention of those they find attractive, not to become public property where everyone feels they have the right to comment, stare or touch.

Then there is a time and a place. See, when you wear those kinds of revealing clothes in public you are opening yourself up to the public. If you only wished to wear those things to attract a certain someone, well... That's why you'd say, invite them over to dinner, and wear said clothes especially for them and them alone. Please however, the most important thing to remember is that, this is in fact a game, it is not real and your pixels cannot feel physically violated unless you allow them to... Which, unless you are the hardcorest of the hardcore RPers, you can disassociate yourself from your pixels yeah?

Know why uno has a shortage of nodes ?
All the super duper l33t PvP guilds are on other servers and they have such high turnover and people quitting because nobody wants to deal with no life 16 yr olds chain killing them every day every minute on those servers....

Yet another valid point in why OW-PvP ruins population bases. Little kids and trolls just are not fun to deal with every damn day.

Uno is probably the best server right now in terms of population and quality of life & people.

I am on Uno and I think it's cool that most nodes wars are competitive.  Not every guild should be able to build/autowin a t1 node.  T3s are contested by alliances, which is a cool additional dynamic to the PvP endgame.  I think it'll shake out eventually so that most smaller guilds will find other smaller guilds contesting T1s instead of finding a big PvP centric guilds there for the easy money.  The lockout after you take anything higher in rank means pretty soon smaller casual guilds will be able to war for a T1 at the end of the weekly cycle I hope.

Uno also has it's Troll guilds, but here again I think they're a benefit almost, the game having 'bad guys' makes it a bit more interesting and the griefing isn't out of control imo.

Sounds carebear as -----, I was watching uno stream and saw no one even roll up to their grind spot for 2+ hours. If your saying a dead server is quality of life then by all means go ahead. I'll laugh my ass off when they never merge servers and they are just left their doing nothing.

Well I only have like 500 million cash in all storages the rest I am hoarding stuff :) If I sold all the stuff Im hoarding I would have way more than that. I know it looks at what you have in storage etc but if you sold it you would have close to that amount included.

I expect Uno is just behind a little bit, if you were watching a streamer he's probably pretty geared and into advanced content where the users are pretty light and if you do find someone in the rotation you want to do and don't want to contest any random channel change has a 90% chance of getting you a clear spot.  Sausans and now Pirates are pretty heavily contested on Uno still, and I'm not sure if people have already moved on from Sausans on other other servers.

No skill add-on fixes?
No class balances?
More pay to win?
GG

The maids are pay for convenience. 
They did do a skill add-on fix.  Check the new descriptions now as they have been updated to be accurate.  If the skill add-on you were looking for was not there then you need to elaborate. 

The Maids are not pay to win, they are pay for convenience.  The only "pay to win" items in the cash shop currently are the Value Pack and guillie suit items.  Both of these are mild pay to win benefits in comparison to EVERY OTHER MMO other than maybe Elder Scrolls Online. 

If you don't like it Please stop playing so we don't have to year you whining.

this maid will have a huge advantage to those who go to pirate island, you will be able to drop your bandanas off on said maid every 20 mins, and then continue grinding away. This will save alot of time having to do turn ins as a whole

sorry but they can only carry 50LT, not many bandanas

Ya, but that's what I'm talking about, if you're killing at your level I think you should have go through different skill rotations and actually try, like if you get your shield up at the right time you win and if you don't you die.  That makes a game fun. facerolling sausans is just hella boring, it feels like a job at that point.  Some of the most fun I had in this game was trying to kill Mutant Tree Spirits at lvl 50 with a buddy.  It was like our own little duo boss fights, the money and experience efficiency was awful, but we were enjoying ourselves.  So that's what Im looking for out of new content.  

I think people are accustomed in the game to just face tanking and moving through packs of easy mobs.  If i take a break from the game it'll be nice to have Pirates that I know I can go back to and powerlevel to catch up a bit, but for the time being i'm going to keep trying to find things that are hard to kill, and kill that - like other guild leaders.

Oh well, then dont be mad about your server having low population and the REASON why your merged into us.

Uno is alive and well and fully populated with every Node contested and a pretty decent player base. 

I am happier than a pig in sh*t that cancer like you decided to play on another server.
