      Dojo Rules & Guidelines   09/29/16

      By using this website ("Blade & Soul Dojo"), you agree that you'll follow these rules, and understand that if we reasonably think you haven't followed these rules, we may (at our own discretion) terminate your access to the site: Navigation GeneralRules Questions & Technical Support Blade & Soul Feedback Clan Discussion & Recruitment Marketplace Guides Roleplay & Fan Fiction Mods & Tools Off-Topic Discussion Reputation System Repeat Offenders Ban Appeals Staff Contact General Rules You will not post hate speech, personal attacks or private information. You will not "name & shame" any cheaters, exploiters, hackers or any other rather unpleasant players. Please use the in-game Report and Block features instead. You will not post extremely explicit text or images such as pornography or gore. All content should be safe-for-work. Borderline posts should be hidden with spoiler tags to maintain a SFW (safe-for-work) environment. Please do not post links or images from Imgur. Imgur blocked the Dojo from hotlinking their images with no warning or negotiation offers so any posted Imgur images or avatars will be broken or appear "white". You will not post off-topic discussion or derail threads. Memes, macros and other unrelated content should be hidden with spoiler tags. You will not create posts with the intention of flame-baiting, “circlejerking” or anything else that could be considered low-quality. You will not post images containing additional data such as embedded sounds or documents. You will not ask for free in-game items, NC Coins or gold (“begging”). You will not impersonate Dojo staff, Curse staff or NCSoft staff. You will not flood or spam threads. At the current level of Dojo activity, bumps will only be allowed once every three days. You will not bump old threads that have not been posted on for at least 30 days (“necro”). This does not include guides, mods, tools or clan threads. You will not create threads with the intention of causing unrest (“baiting”). You will not discuss any private servers, cheating, account selling, real money trading (“RMT”), trust trading or related activities. This does not include mods or tools that do not break Dojo rules. False reports will result in a warning or ban. Please read the rules carefully before sending in reports. Backseat (“pocket”) moderation will be hidden to keep the forum clean. If you find a post or thread that you believe needs to be moderated, use the report function. You will not edit your post if it has been edited by a moderator for rule-breaking. You will obey moderator warnings. If you are privately messaged by a moderator for rule-breaking and you wish to contest it, you may do so in the private message but remember that moderator decisions are final. Complaints about Dojo rules, Dojo staff members or the Dojo itself on the forum will be hidden and further action may be taken against your account. If there are changes you wish to see, use the Site Feedback & Support board. Topics and posts may be edited or altered by Dojo staff members due to bad formatting. This can include things such as posts typed in capslock or posts that have content that needs to be hidden with spoiler tags. Moderators may delete or hide posts without warning if the post was not worth writing a warning for. If your post is hidden or deleted and you were not notified, it was done so because it broke a simple forum rule and required removal. Questions & Technical Support Misinformation will be hidden. Constant spreading of misinformation or lazy replies will result in a warning or ban (i.e. “search it yourself”). Blade & Soul Feedback You will not beg NCSoft staff, Curse staff, Dojo staff or Dojo members for gifts, keys, NC Coins, etc unless participating in a specific giveaway. Clan Discussion & Recruitment Forum rules #3, #4 and #9 will be loosely enforced on the Clan Discussion & Recruitment board. Do not create new clan threads over and over to advertise the same clan. Request for an old thread to be locked if you need to create a new one. Attacking other clans for their management or playstyles will not be tolerated and will be treated the same way as personal attacks. If your clan uses a language other than English, use [XX] in the beginning of your topic title (i.e. [FR] for French clans). Marketplace You will not attempt to buy, sell or trade NCoin or items from the Hongmoon Store. You will not participate in any real-money trading ("RMT") transactions, such as selling gold. You will not attempt to buy or sell premium membership. You will not participate in trust trades, such as selling services, trading cross-server, or selling items from the Hongmoon store. Guides You will not create any threads on the Guides board that could not be considered guides. Roleplay & Fan Fiction You will not roleplay in any board outside of the Roleplay & Fan Fiction board. Erotic roleplay (“ERP”) will not be tolerated and will result in a hidden post or deleted thread. Mods & Tools You will not post mods or tools that could be used to give you an advantage over other players (i.e. speedhacks). You will not post extremely explicit mods, such as nudity mods. You will not steal work created by another user. All work must be original unless you are given permission by the original creator of the work to post it on the Dojo. You will not submit mods that infringe on the copyrights of companies (i.e. Sanrio outfits, etc.). You will not submit mods that require users to bypass GameGuard, nor will you submit mods that teach users how to bypass GameGuard. Off-Topic Discussion Forum rules #3, #4, #8 and #9 will be loosely enforced on the Off-Topic Discussion board. You will not need to use spoiler tags for off-topic posts, including borderline content, memes, macros, etc. Reputation System You will not use the reputation system in a way that shows bias towards specific members. Repeat Offenders We will no longer be using the warning point system. Instead, temporary bans will be issued to repeat offenders. The decision to ban and the length of the ban will be at the moderators’ discretion. Ban Appeals If you feel you were wrongly banned or that you have changed your ways, you can email me through the Dojo’s contact system (found on my profile underneath “Contact Information”). Your appeal will be discussed by the Dojo staff members before a decision is made. Please note, creating additional accounts (“sockpuppets”) to circumvent a Dojo ban will result in a longer ban of the original account and permanent bans of the additional accounts.

Hey guys, so I was looking for videos on Tera to see if it looks any good, and I found this guy who's making some every day. Gives me a good perspective on the game and his commentary is decent..... It's worth a look at if you were interested in trying out Tera. Subscribe to his channel to get the latest info/gameplay on Tera. :wave:

I hate that metallic sound but very fluid animations.
Looks like they learned from WOW (Fluid animations) and past mistakes (Aion's robotic combat).
I'll be giving it a go the first chance I get.

TERA online just doesn't appeal to me at all. Berserker is just ridiculous if it takes u 3 secs just to get the axe out of the ground buy rights u should be dead armour in reality will only deflect blows if ur moving with it,a sword stab can punch through steel. Sword bigger then u is just lame in my opinion it looks like its made of foam not metal lol. I do archery it a good sport. seriosly no matter how powerful the bow is it will not recoil so much it makes u back roll. in fact bows actually recoil forwards the bow limb is a lot heavier then the arrow and the string. Newtons third law

Not realism just do not like stupidity and from what i have seen Blade and soul its just about the most real mmorpg i have seen which one of the major reasons i want to play it so much. You will die if the 40 foot tall boss smacks u in the head with an 20 foot sword if u don't move.

The berserker and slayer mechanics don't really bother me that much just the Archery really pisses me off. I see new people come try archery and go flinging there draw arm like they've been hit when all they did was let go of a piece of string. The arrow misses complete and breaks hitting the barrier which costs the club money. Then they bitch about how much there arm hurts because they wouldn't listen how to hold the bow properly so the string doesn't hit them.

Rift sucks at pvp? r u sure u played Rift? the pvp is Fun lol, better than anything available Out there anyway... Tera and BNS will be much better, but calling Rift fail at pvp is Faulty statement, or u just lose all the time... i even think its a better version of the Battlegrounds they have in Wow, Much better one

....Fantasy MMOG.... if u wanted Realistic proportions in a game, U may want to try playing World of world of warcraft.

Technically if a person Stabs you, u dont neccessarily die, unless placed in the back of ur head. Stab in the heart wont kill u instantly. it takes time for the body to stop working. Games in general appeal to the Lack of reality to succeed, unless ur one of those that roleplay being elves... in real life lolXD Edited by blodskaal

I've been playing the KR version of it and I have to say, I am very, very impressed. Specially by the higher level mob AI! Insanely well balanced and intelligent.
The higher level you get, the smarter mobs become. To the point that it's hard to tell them apart from players.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ajTudgs_a5o
I hear the NA/EU release is scheduled/estimated around Sept. 6th but this is an estimate, meaning it could be sooner or later but Sept. nonetheless.
This will keep me occupied until B&S. Edited by Tashigi

May 12th Tera KR patches in the new content to their PTR.
So tempted to renew.
They're adding some of these below and needless to say I am very intrigued.

1) Server vs Server PVP
2) Nearly half a continent of new areas (As if the world wasn't big enough)
3) Flying mounts (Not sure how I feel about these but they mention floating islands, so it kind of makes sense)
4) Several new bosses and more campaign quests.
5) Tons of other stuff.

Are they definitely flying mounts? Or just a different kind of mount to get you to the floating islands (like the Pegasus)?

A lot of folks are "guessing" that it'll be in the fall (September-ish). There is no official release date yet though.

Bloody epic.
Stop playing whatever you're playing and start spending those 15 USD a month on building a better rig.
Sept. is going to be the new back to school.
