  10. I couldn't get it to work for the life of me ; ;
  11. 150,000 DPS force masters running around in PvE and destroyer players are envious of blade dancers for their (not that amazing) DPS and token damage during grab. I don't get it.

      Cuz it's easier for a spinner to compared himself with another spinner. FM does not spin, so it is out of picture.

  12. Was fighting a destroyer in owPvP and I found that he was often resisting CCs while not using a skill. I had him grabbed once and he didn't get the knock back from the grab's throw as BD. Just landed in front of me.
  13. Last week
  14. Can i join this clan? My name is Aioki and level 39 rn
  15. First of all ... thanks alot for doing this for us .... <3 Race & Gender : LynF base item : To this item : please :D

  17. This sometimes happens after a patch, in this particular case it was fixed when they released a hotfix on the next day. You running the western client, English language? Are you running the slider tool as admin? Did you try starting the tool after launching the game and allowing it to load all the way to the character selection screen? On a side note, just noticed it does give an "error loading profile" message now, but that just refers to the auto-loading of saved profiles. Manually selecting a profile still seems to work.
  18. Just wondering... does this translation include the quests? And if so, is it the same as the crappy localised NA/EU release or an original translation? Also, will it work for the JP version or just the TW version? Thank you very much! :)
  19. Yup, it clips. LynF_Feline_Frisky_to_JinF_Feline_Frisky.7z
  20. Done, but just as I expected, it looks weird. JinF_Profane_Jianshi_Charm_to_Lyn_Profane_Jiangshi_Charm.7z
  21. You can no longer use those shields to infuse so you hunting for them is a waste of your time. You are better off just aiming to get a yeti shield set from 6m yeti if you want higher crit.
  22. Saw your vids Very nice :) thanks for the mods :D
  23. Best read of the week:

    Ceru's players on Server group 2 EU deserve to get farmed. i am glad some people swapped and started to dig them.  I would have done it myself if it wasn't for the penalty. The majority on Ceru side are just leechers and brainless people.

      The thing is, its being done for Cerulean elite guilds who dont want anyone else to gain a thing from SSP. Id understand if it were simple faction pvp but its not. Just a couple of whales looking to lock out an entire section of players from content so they cant progress. The faction system is retarded and was never well thought out. You cant blame people for flocking to the dominant faction so that they can progress. Most dont even want to PvP so they treat factions as another PvE thing (which at this point it is). NCSoft should just do away with the faction system or introduce a 4 channel SSP where 2 are directed towards Ceru and 2 towards Crims and making it heavily punishing to players who wish to invade into the other channels. At this point, factions are nothing more than a way for bored whales to bully undergeared players because theyre too afraid to go into 6v6 and fight other whales who would probably wreck them.

      The majority on group 2 eu who farm ssp day and night aren't udnergeared. The avg farmer here actually got my gear or higher. AP 750+ gear, but 99% of them are just shit people who turn their brains off.

  25. Your ping is fine, I play with 150ms and blocking/iframing for example isn't a problem.
  26. Once you reach lvl 50 you will auto get hm1
  27. I waited for this outfit for along time. Turn out it does not look that good. What do you think? The hairstyle is okay, though i don't like how she looks bald from the front.
