|Blade & Soul: Remove nProtect GameGuard
|Cmon, NCSoft, you guys did it with Aion and it didn't work out so you removed it from your western release of Aion. Please, please for all of us having issues with it, remove this. It's never been proven to keep out hackers and has a higher success rate of getting people banned that have been playing legit. It's hurting your game and playerbase.
Not only is this software currently giving you an immense amount of bug reports for Windows users but it's also the single piece of software that's keeping us Linux users from being able to enjoy the game as well you have a lot of Blade And Soul Gold. Devs, I'm sure you're all aware of the Russian localization client versions that were out before the release of which will not be mentioned any further due to their nature. This game runs beautifully through WINE for Linux users when GameGuard isn't keeping us from playing due to the way it works. GameGuard has single-handedly destroyed the ability for other platform users to play over 20 big name games.
Countless players are getting warnings from their virus scanners, having numerous bugs, and even many uninstalling and swearing the game off due to this small piece of software.
GameGuard is essentially a rootkit and shouldn't be necessary in order for the community to play and enjoy Blade And Soul. It wasn't a necessity for Aion and was removed. Please remove it from the western client like you did with Aion.
Do it to help yourselves, get rid of it before it becomes a stinking mess like it did in Aion. You'll have less bug reports to deal with Cheap BNS Gold, you'll have a happier community, and you'll also be supporting platform freedom to a certain extent, something which many, many major gaming companies have already done and in turn has gained them a stronger, larger playerbase.
For any committed BnS players who support the removal and/or replacement of GameGuard, please +1 this post and show your support so we can have this removed before live launches in January. If we do this now, we can see the game we've all become addicted to grow stronger.
|Blade & Soul: Gathering and Crafting
|It takes more than warriors to make the world work. The Earthen Realm is filled with countless merchants, master crafters, and skilled artisans honing their work to perfection. Many have rallied together to form enormous guilds which reach every corner of the Realm, selling their wares and offering their services to the world... for the right price.
Contracts and Reputation
In a modern era of convenience, a warrior is no longer responsible for crafting their own equipment—it’s a practice better left to the professionals! Those looking to make use of the guilds simply need to speak with Cheap BNS Gold, found commonly in major towns, to request a contract with the guild. It’s possible to establish contracts with a maximum of two Gathering Guilds and two Crafting Guilds at a time. Specific Crafting Guilds use materials collected by specific Gathering Guilds, so it’s important that one does the necessary research to know which connections they want to make. While one can freely end contracts and start new ones at any time, one will lose their established reputation with the guild and need to start from scratch if they want to rejoin later!
Once a contract is established, a warrior can order various goods and services from a guild. After placing an order and paying a nominal fee, one must simply wait a while before the order is fulfilled for them. It’s best to place an order before adventuring, allowing the guilds to work in the meantime. All those wonderful items will be waiting when you return after a long day of righting wrongs and fighting monsters.
In order to make the finest goods, first one must gather the finest materials. Widely dubbed as Gathering Guilds, there are a handful of groups who travel far and wide digging up only the best components upon request. They are the lifeblood of the industry; without them, the Crafting Guilds would be lost. As one works with the Gathering Guilds, they will gain a reputation as being a reliable customer and thus gain access to rare materials over time.
The Gathering Guilds each specialize in sampling specific facets of nature. “The Stonecutters” gather earth and stone, while “The Prospector’s Union” specializes in rare ores and raw gems. “The Tree Fellers” and “Herbside Service” are in touch with the forest, gathering fine wood and healthy medicinal plants respectively. Since everyone needs to eat, it’s up to the “Green Thumbs” guild to farm crops, “The Trapper’s Alliance” to hunt choice prey, and the “Fish Network” to haul up the bounties of the sea.
The resources of nature may be great, but it takes a skilled artisan to really make use of those materials. Enter the Crafting Guilds, a number of influential guilds who ultimately supply the Realm and control the economy. Unsurprisingly, many of them can be found in dangerous regions, often helping out alongside warriors in any way they can. Reputation matters here as well: the more work one does with the Crafting Guilds, the higher quality goods they can produce.
“The Radiant Ring” and “The Forgekeepers” craft stunning works of art that are both beautiful and functional, empowering warriors with fabulous accessories and mighty weapons. While those two protect the body, the “Earthseers” and the “Soul Wardens” guard the spirit – their specialty being charms, talismans, and Soul Shields. When it comes to potent potables, look no further than the “Silver Cauldron” for health-bolstering tonics and potions, while the “Acquired Taste” guild will fill any warrior’s belly with fine cuisine to Buy BNS Gold. “The Merry Potters” may seem like the odd-man out with their focus on crafting fine ceramics, but the goods they make are used by all the other guilds, making a strong relationship with them a very wise decision for those looking to play the market.
|Stuck/Rubberbanding in Blade & Soul
|champions ip boosts and xp boosts, are all purchased through ip which is currancy you earn not buy but good try. Also beyond the 30 hour grind it takes to hit lvl 30 ip and xp boosts are no longer useful. What they sell is all cosmetic everything else is earned.
Uhh, I'm under the impression you don't even play the game.
You are correct in that League lives solely through skin sales. 100%. They don't sell a lot of official merchandise, and they actually lose money doing the LCS (imo it's just like a huge advertisement for the game).
But, IP boosts and XP boosts are not bought with IP (Influence Points, in-game currency). Champions, however, can be. Or they can be bought with RP (Riot Point), the real money system. Prices vary, but it's 6300 (~50 games worth of Blade And Soul Items) IP or 975 RP (~8 USD). Skin prices vary, but they are also generally 975 RP.
IP/XP boosts cost RP. Champions can be bought with IP or RP.
Also beyond the 30 hour grind it takes to hit lvl 30 ip and xp boosts are no longer useful.
LOL what the fuck are you even talking about. Before I even get started, it takes longer than 30 hours to hit level 30.
30 is account level cap, so obv XP boosts aren't useful. But IP boosts? What? If you're talking straight up in terms of value, it's usually better to buy a 3-Day or 7-Day IP boost over spending that RP directly for the champion. Especially considering you cannot spend RP to buy Runes, which are IMO 100% necessary to play the game.
Anyway tl;dr: OP is an idiot, but Riot does fund League solely through skin sales. Which are purely cosmetic.
|Be Careful with Black Desert in Blade & Soul
|I prefer Black Desert over Blade & Soul. While the B&S alpha was alright, I can see the P2W features a mile away and while most people are complacent with that, it's too much for me.
I'd rather B2P like with Guild Wars 2 and not face things like bots and P2W shops while still being able to further support the game with a cash shop for cosmetics.
Also these two games are wholly different from each other. Other than both of them being MMORPGs, there's really not a lot to compare. Blade & Soul is largely based around it's dungeons where Black Desert doesn't have any and instead opts for world bosses. There's also a lot of other things to do in Black Desert to gain EXP (fishing, farming crops, merchant trading, ect) that B&S simply doesn't have.
When it comes down to it it's really all about what you want personally in a game because no one will force you to put up with something you don't enjoy
You can pay as much as you want in BnS but i will still own your sorry butts with free account in arena if you two are so noob that you think those things are pay to win.
On the contrary, BDO is a huge farming game and open world pvp is the ultimate end game. If i am willing to get more Blade & Soul Items, i can pay farmers to farm for me and since main pvp are gear based and skill cap is lower than BnS, i will literally own you with my bought gear. This is why BnS arena has equalized gear so gear doesn't matter in serious competition.
If you think buy to play stop this... easily get around with. A guild can be a farming guild who ally with a pvp guild for protection. Then the farmers can easily feed items to the buyers. Even if the admins find out, how do they verify it? Its not like theme park games where if you sell a high price thing for 1coin, its obviously suspicious. Here guilds ally and make concessions all the time similar to Eve online.
|Blade & Soul Servers Discussions
|I've played Blade and Soul on the Russian servers for a while and had a complete blast, even though it was mostly by myself. I love how different everyone's characters were and the combat is so much fun. Being able to combo and things like that really make it so that you feel like you're playing a fighting game and I love that! I think being on NA servers would be a lot more fun because there would be more people to talk to, play, and learn the game with.
I have been following this MMO for years and finally, finally when they release NA want to play! The combat and the world is so beautiful! Breaking the Holy Trinity up is also something rare that only GW2 has managed with Cheap Blade And Soul Gold, so this is super interesting, too! It's a bit unlike anything in recent times, at least out here in the West.
I'm not very solid financially and so buying a founder's pack to play is a bit tricky. A code would go a long way in helping me decide if this is something I want to break a piggy bank for!
Never really played any mmos I was always drawn to them but I could never could play one that actually look like it could stick. ive been playing league of legends for the past 2 years and It is kind of dying for me. There isnt many other games I want to play besides BnS because it looks like one of the best mmos ive ever seen. Really wanna play it if I dont win this giveaway I just have to hope they let me in on the 29th.
I recently met up with an old mmo friend that I haven't seen in years, and he invited me to play blade and soul with him. I've been browsing this subreddit the last few days to determine if I should really spend money on a founder pack (college student, not ridiculously broke but I have peace of mind knowing I still have enough money for rent, books, food, Blade & Soul Gold etc). The game itself definitely seems awesome and I'm looking forward to playing regardless if I get beta or not, so if someone else needs it more then just ignore this.
However, with the hype of this long awaited game, I couldn't help but be obsessed with this game for the past few weeks. I've watched streams and guides on blade and soul every day. I've already decided which class I'm picking after seeing so many cool game plays of it; Assassin.
