BnS Update 1/23/13 Over the limit

14 posts in this topic

Hey guyz,

while watching the korean BnS site I recognized this update called "Over the limit"

As I can't read/understand korean I used google translate for this site:

http://bns.plaync.com/news/notice/article/1682

Can somebody give a review about this article for the community?

I don't know if I understand it right. So don't get mad if I write something wrong.

They implemented now a tool to make extra slots in your weapon.

This tool can be obtained by a quest in the paradise of daesung dungeon. Is this quest limited for a timeperiod or will it be always available. I have to ask this, because they call this ingame Event.

Can I do this quest more than 1 time with one character?

the other option is to buy it for real money in cash shop?

Thanks for description in advance.

EDIT: Ok I did now the apeboss in Paradise of Daesung he dropped the following item in the picture below.

post-23897-0-01377900-1358945639_thumb.jpg

He dropped 1 of this item

After this I went to the PC Vendor in the wooden town of the last continent. She sells 4 diffrent types of this slottool

post-23897-0-29314000-1358945695_thumb.jpg

what is the diffrence between those 4 types and can I only use it when I'm playing in an inernet café?

Hey,

I dont speak korean so I cant give you any detailed stuff. But from the screenshot you have provided it seems like those items can be used by everyone. Items that are for internet café only always have a line with PC at the bottom of the item describtion. If you check out the other items that vendor sells you will be able to see it.

However, since this Item is sold by that café vendor and a fact that NCsoft is trying way to hard to get the ranking (and money) up by getting people into those cafés I wouldnt be suprised if it is for café users only.

I have also noticed a Event on the Cover Story of the Login Page the last weeks, they always had something to do with Gems, however since that Event has been running for longer now, it might be something completly different.

from what i know, this event was begin at 16 january, for the any1 who played at Cyber cafe

For us all player, the event begin from 23 january, and end at the same time 13 feb.

And you can buy this for 100 point ea, in point shop, spent 10k ncoin will give you 100 point.

the cheapest one give you a square slot, the next one give you random square or penta, then penta or hexa, the last one give hexa slot.

Yay, solo farming ToS atm to get them. Seems like you get them from all 4man Dungeons starting at ToS. So probably Poh, BSH, Spiral.

As for the buying with NCPoints, that only works if you are a Silver Member, wich you wont be if you only bought subs I think. Well I am family member at least and cant buy them

Note that this can only be bought with n points and not n coins. N coins are what you buy with real money. N points are what you receive when you buy stuff using n coins. They cannot be directly bought.

You need 45 of these for 1 hexa gem socket with 100% chance.

15 will get you 1 penta or 1 hexa gem socket. Don't know the percentages though. (I think...)

Also 1 run per day limit for BSH has been lifted.

Does anyone have any gameplay footage that shows off these changes?

It sounds a lot more interesting than before, seeing that players can now tech grabs and perform aerial recoveries.

I think the new Force Master fire mode x skill 화련장 (with level 4 upgrade) is a bit op...

It can one shot decently pve geared players with a crit (about 14~15k damage) (up to 19k against mobs)

It's instant cast, 16m ranged, costs only 3 chi and has no additional requirement... can be blocked though.
