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 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.

Its rather that you need to wear special doboks to do PvP. But for the Battlegrounds it wont matter.

Reason is no important and fact is fact, majority of the clothes are restricted for PvE. And I'm much more interest OW-PvP than BG. That is the main reason why I do not like PvP system in B&S. It should be possible just to join fraction and be marked for PvP all the time.

I agree with you, it would be nice if they added a much larger selection of PvP Doboks, so at least there is more variety. Or.. if you could turn whatever dobok you want into a PvP dobok.

I'd hate to be marked for PVP all the time. Makes for pretty easy harassing and enables some serious trolling shit.

there is no best , if u are good then u are good , people soloing Boss ,owning other players with 1vs3 pvp. u just need to train more to be a good fighter.

I couldn't agree more with this. Not everyone is online to gank or harass ppl 24/7, they'd much rather pvp when they feel up to it not be forced into it. If the whole gank fest and pvp whenever you want is your taste then you should go play TERA the pvp community is horrible there and they would love ppl to join them in ganks and staying flagged.

There is always multiple ways to fix that. It can be always PvP servers. Or make possible optional permanent membership, not depend on used dobok.

Tera have sux PvP. Only way to gank somebody is gank a low lvl, what is not in my style. I do like harsh gankfest, but on players on my lvl. Sadly last games what offered this are from 8 years - old chornicles of L2 and EvE.

it takes 3 weeks to hit 45. 2 weeks to 30. 1 week gets you to 20+ --> if you are playing on 4-5 hours per day.

nope those chinese guys they can make it in 3 days lol if u believe Oo

they are 24hours online for 2 days , lvl1 - lvl 20 10hours, then 20-36 12hours , its alomost 1day . then the next 24hours they can make it to 45 , after lvl 36 every 2-3hours u can make 1lvl (killing mobs for exp) , people doing quest will take 3-4hours for 1lvl.

but there is 1 thing u should know they always with 2 people or 3 playing1 account ,thats why they are fast , and then after first account hit lvl 45 they make another 1 , about 1 week 3account with lvl 45. / so for normal people they can hits lvl 45 in 2 weeks then if u playing on 3-4 hours per day .....

and btw i think not even 2 weeks , there will be some gold sellers in servers , or item seller , they are a company. and most of them is chinese...... :surrender:

Wait. Confused a bit here. I thought the outfits didn't matter in PvP or PvE. That one could have whatever outfit and that gear was based on other things. Is that not the case?

You dont get stats from outfits only from your bopae, weapon, and jewelry. Every outfit has no stats on it; however certain outfits are designated as pve or as pvp. If you want to pvp you have to wear certain outfits to do so.

So on that site that was linked in the OP, are the outfits on the bottom the PvP outfits?

Hopefully that changes though, I'd like to just pick my favorite outfits and wear them :)

Gotta agree with you on that part. I would prefer to just activate PvP when I wanted to, no matter what im wearing. I dont care wether PvP would be enabled 100% of the time or not, but a lot of people don't really like it I guess, but thats what PvE servers are for.

Maybe there will be something similar happening as in Tera. They changed the Open World PvP drasticly for the Western Release (removing a lot of restrictions). I guess you could hope for that, but I wouldnt get your hopes too high tbh. as there is more into the PvP then just killing others. Its more about rivaling factions (theres more then the 2 PvP factions).

well it does

in late game , after lvl 20 or something , u need to wear OUTFITS to UNLOCK THE STATS OF BO PAE,

means when u got a full set zombie bo pae (lvl 9 bo pae) , then u need to wear his outfits to active this bo pae stats.

but only in late game , there is some really OP outfits+bo pae .

u see it , when u click on a outfits , under that picture , u see some chinese words.

(that is where u get this outfits , and how to active his bo pae)

No you dont. Im playing the Koean version of the game. You do NOT need to wear special Doboks for extra stats, they are completly independent!

i have read somewhere , but u sure?

so your bo pae has nothing to do with outfits?

ok my bad xD

found somewhere , it says this system of bo pae and outfits is perfect for people dont like to hunt items , like gloves , hat , shoes, everything , u just wear a outfits for model, and bo pae for all stats ^^

http://www.colg.cn/thread-2388414-1-2.html (bo pae lvl 1-lvl 36)

http://www.colg.cn/thread-2412181-1-1.html (bo pae lvl 36-45)

i think alomost every bo pae is here , u can see the stats of every bo pae .

命中 = acc

回避 = dodge

防御力 = defence

最大生命值 = hp

格挡 = parry

致命一击 = crit

贯通 = pierce

3套装效果 = 3set

5套装效果 = 5set

8套装效果 = 8set

Heh... as PvP-er I'm confused. All my favorites outfits are PvE :S

Like someone else mentioned earlier in the thread, there is an extremely limited selection of PvP Doboks available compared to PvE Doboks. It would be nice, and I'm sure over time it will happen, if they added more selection into the game.
