      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.

The Dojo's (KR) Q&A

85 posts in this topic

[color="#FFFFFF"][b][color="#FF0000"]Important![/color] The Dojo's "official" (KR) server is 이심전심.[/b][/color]

Greetings fellow Blade & Soul fans,

Use this thread to ask any and all question related to Blade & Soul's Korean Retail! We created this thread for Blade & Soul (KR) players, to help the non-Korean-based players to get by a few gameplay aspects of Blade & Soul. However, if you have any questions or opinion requests for the current players please ask in this thread as well.

Having technical problems with the Blade & Soul (KR) client? Please reply to [url="http://www.bladeandsouldojo.com/topic/4380-the-dojos-obt-qa/"]this thread[/url] or create a new thread in [url="http://www.bladeandsouldojo.com/forum/56-beta-discussion/"]this section[/url] with your questions/problems and the community will try their best to get it fixed. Since the Dojo staff is not affiliated with Team Bloodlust or NCsoft in any way it would be very difficult for us to solve some cases, so please keep that in mind. We would only be helping cases out that we have personally experienced and solved.

Want a question answered as soon as possible? Stop by [url="http://www.twitch.tv/curselive"]our livestream page[/url] and ask in our channel's chat while we are live. We will gladly answer any questions we catch. We are live for a couple hours during NA prime time (Starting at 7:00pm EST).

[color="#FF0000"][b]*Note*[/b][/color] The FAQ will be updated as we progress through the game.

[center][img]http://www.bladeandsouldojo.com/uploads/1297203734/gallery_2_9_1368.png[/img][/center]
[color="#FFA500"][b]Can I play in the KR version?[/b][/color]
Yes, you can, since there is no region lock for now, at least for US and EU. You still need a validated playNC account.
We cannot help you get one.

[color="#FFA500"][b]Where can I download the game?[/b][/color]
We created a dedicated thread [url="http://www.bladeandsouldojo.com/topic/4399-blade-soul-obt-client-download/"]here[/url] with multiple ways to download Blade & Soul's (KR) client.

[b][color="#FFA500"]I keep getting an error and the number 100. What am I doing wrong?[/color][/b]
You have to launch the game from the website, not using the .exe on the game folder.

[color="#FFA500"][b]Does the Blade & Soul Korean Retail version have weekly maintenance?[/b][/color]
Yes, there is weekly maintenance. Maintenance takes place every Wednesday from 5am to 10am KST. That's from 4pm to 9pm EDT and 1pm to 6pm PDT.

[color="#FFA500"][b]What is the Dojo's "official" server?[/b][/color]
The Dojo's "official" server is 태산북두.

[b][color="#FFA500"]Will the Dojo have a guild?[/color][/b]
No, we will not be creating a guild for the Blade & Soul Korean Retail version. There are quite a few English speaking guilds that could be found if you [url="http://www.bladeandsouldojo.com/topic/4454-blade-soul-kr-server-list/"]look around[/url].

[b][color="#FFA500"]Are there any translations for the skill trees?[/color][/b]
Yes, for a few. We have [i][b]very[/b][/i] rough drafts of the [url="http://www.bladeandsouldojo.com/topic/4380-the-dojos-obt-qa/page__view__findpost__p__109399"]following classes[/url]. All missing classes will be coming soon! Be patient!

[color="#FF0000"][b]Update[/b][/color]: Skill trees have been changed for Korean Retail. New translations coming soon.

[color="#FFA500"][b]I'm stuck on a quest and can't read Korean! Can you help?[/b][/color]
It would obviously be incredibly difficult for us to guide you through every question but we can list a few that have caused people the most problems. A short guide can be found in the reply below ([url="http://www.bladeandsouldojo.com/topic/4380-the-dojos-obt-qa/page__view__findpost__p__109400"]click here[/url]).

[color="#FFA500"][b]How can I change the games play style profiles?[/b][/color]
The game has two play style options. You can change between to two on the fly by simply hitting "Shift + F2". Below are the styles of each option.

[b]Option One:[/b]
[list][*]Camera locked to follow mouse. Hold "Alt" to show mouse curser.
[*]Left mouse click to use primary ability.
[*]Right mouse click to use secondary ability.
[/list]
[b]Option Two:[/b]
[list][*]Camera is free and will not follow mouse, mouse curser always shown. Hold down right mouse key to follow mouse.
[*]Primary ability is now bound to "R".
[*]Secondary ability is now bound to "F".
[/list]
[color="#FFA500"][b]How can I use the games emotes if I don't know Korean?[/b][/color]
It's simple! Just hit "F12" and your action buttons will swap to emotes. Hit "1" or "2" to choose between two sets of four emotes. Use the "Tab" key to return to previous bars.

[color="#FFA500"][b]Can you translate the games stats for us?[/b][/color]
Yep! [url="http://www.bladeandsouldojo.com/uploads/gallery/album_176/gallery_2_176_170214.jpg"]Here[/url] is a picture of a character sheet and the translated stats.

[color="#FFA500"][b]How do you hide the UI?[/b][/color]
You can hide your UI for screenshots and video capturing by hitting the Ctrl + X keys on your keyboard.

[color="#FFA500"][b]Where are the screenshots saved?[/b][/color]
They are saved in a folder called "BnS" located in your "Pictures" for Windows 7 users.
*User* > My Pictures > BnS

[color="#FFA500"][b]Is the "Walk" Action available? If so, how do you commence the "Walk" Action?[/b][/color]
Yes, you can walk in Blade & Soul. To walk simply hit the "/" key on your keyboards number pad, next to the "Num Lock" key.

[color="#FFA500"][b]How do I delete a character?[/b][/color]
Deleting a character in the Korean Retail version can be quite the task if you don't already know how to type in Korean as you can not paste text retrieved from outside the client. So, you're going to have to type in Korean in order to delete a character.

First things first, set your keyboard to Korean using [url="http://www.koreanfluent.com/cross_cultural/korean_keyboard/korean_keyboard.htm"]this guide[/url]. Once implemented, click on the "EN" on your taskbar and then "Show the Language bar" to display the bar over the game. Once that is done, switch from EN to KO then click the big "A" on the bar to switch to the Korean keyboard. While in the game type out "tkrwptlscjd" to delete your character. Character deletion takes 5 minutes to complete.

[b][color="#FFA500"]Quest Guide[/color][/b]
Quests are pretty straight forward in Blade & Soul so completing them should not be an issue. Most quests, especially the purple colored class quests will literally tell you (with a picture I might add) what key to press on your keyboard or mouse. So be sure to look at the quest objective on your quest tracker right under your minimap.

[b]What do the different color quests mean?[/b]
[list]
[*][color="#FFFF00"]Yellow[/color]: Main story quests.
[*][color="#0000FF"]Blue[/color]: Side quests.
[*][color="#800080"]Purple[/color]: Class quests. These teach you how to pull off certain combos.
[*][color="#FF0000"]Red[/color]: PvP faction quests. Some of these only appear when you have that factions Dobok, or armor, on.
[/list]
[b]What do the different quest shapes mean?[/b]
[list]
[*]Single Arrow: Begin new quest.
[*]Double Overlapped Arrows: Quest objective markers. This means you have to either kill a named enemy in that area or talk to someone.
[*]Star: Complete quest. Gather reward and experience points.
[/list]
[b]Think you're stuck on a questor missing something? Here's a few things to do before searching for answers.[/b]
[list]
[*]Check your bags for quest scrolls! Some quests require to read scrolls in your bags before continuing or even beginning the quest in the first place.
[*]Some yellow quests require you to complete the surrounding blue quests in the area. This will occur at around level 5.
[*]Some quests will require you to accept them by clicking on the flashing icon and text on your quest tracker right under your minimap. Be sure to keep an eye on that at all times to snag all quests! Class quests (purple) require you to do this.
[*]Check the quest objective for hints! You don't have to know how to read Korean to follow instructions with images. If the quest has a hotkey image on it put two and two together! They want you to do something involving that key!
[*]Look at your minimap! The minimap tells you what to do! Red circles mean you have to kill something in that area, blue circles mean you have to collect something in that area. Simple.
[*]Use the quest minimap tracker! When viewing a specific quest in your quest journal hit the button on the very bottom right hand side to track the quest on your minimap (the button to the left of that is to abandon the quest so if I confirmation window pops up you hit the wrong button). The minimap will center in on the location the quest wants you to be.
[/list]
[color="#FFFFFF"][b]Early Level Tutorial Quests[/b][/color]
They added in a good dozen tutorial quests throughout the early levels of the game now. As mentioned above, most of them are pretty easy to complete by just hitting the keys it tells you to hit. Others will give you a little harder time. Below are the quests that gave some of us a bit of trouble.

[list]
[*]At levels 4-6ish. You'll receive a quest that tells you to hit "I" to open your inventory. Do that and purchase a new bag expansion slot to finish.
[*]At levels 6-10 you'll receive multiple Bo-Pae modification and weapon gem tutorial quests. Just open your bags and look for Bo-Pae, a weapon and/or a gem that you cannot use. Click the dust icon at the bottom of you inventory to dissemble a Bo-Pae piece, click the first button next to that one to modify a Bo-Pae piece and shift+click the weapon to add a gem to it.
[/list]
[color="#FFFFFF"][b]Qing Gong Quests[/b][/color]
You'll be getting Qing Gong upgrade quests throughout your adventure through the Blade & Soul world. Some of the quests are obtained from NPC's while others will simply appear on your quest tracker under your minimap, requiring you to click it to accept it. Below is a quick guide for each of those quests.

You're asking for too much! We have a lot on our plate at the moment. A complete changelog, or patch notes, of all the previous versions would take too much time to write up from scratch or translate for us right now. I'll see what I can put together for the CBT3 to OBT changes at the very least, just give OBT a few days to settle in.

I'll keep you posted!

Adding a tip for those questing.
Some main (Yellow) quests will require that you clear all side (Blue) quests in an area on occasion.
The main (Yellow) quest 5 last requirement is for you to complete all of the three area quests in order to proceed forwards. (This was the quest I was stuck on Revast; the quest for buying the bag became available after doing all of the other area quests) :3

I heard there we're some skill changes among the classes. I'm curious as to what people have experienced so far in terms of class balancing. Any observations? Thanks.

Qing Gong question, around what level do you gain access to running on water? I am level 15 now and I still don't have it :(.

Running on water is a blue quest you get after doing a main quest that is carrying some wood and jars for a guy.
I don't remember correctly the number and name, but it's somewhere when you get to an area that is like a second town.

Okay so let me just get this straight.

This is an open-beta-testing game that is up for download.
You can download the game, but you can't actually play the game unless you have a Korean account ID. Is that correct?
And, in order to get this Korean account ID, you would need a joo min deung nok bon hoh, or the Korean SSN.

So therefore, if you are not a native born Korean without a SSN in your Korean passport, you would not be able to play this game.
However, if you are a native Korean with your native SSN, no matter where you are in the world, you will be able to play this game.

Hi Sekuiya,

So going by emli's post and your reply. I have downloaded all of the links and ran the setup.exe and tried to make an account for (http://bns.plaync.co...ad/client/index) which I completely failed at. :cry: I as a born American citizen lol who lives in America do not have a chance in hell to play this game? :sob:

With warmth and gratitude,

Maury
