  1. want to play. X_X real life needs to go somewhere else for a while.

  2. This may sound weird but....

    :omg: yes. thus the 'use at your own risk'.
  3. This may sound weird but....

    use at own risk. that is all
  4. Blade & Soul: Upcoming Content Teaser

    the summoner sunflower skill (and various skill for other classes) is added in patch 3.0 according to some articles. the B&S streams once mentioned our version starts with the 3.0 skill patch, though that stream was quite some months ago so no luck finding it again. heck i watched bajheeras stream during beta and i remember seeing this , and bajeera has only played the western version.
  5. Blade & Soul: Upcoming Content Teaser

    uhhh, maybe i might be imagining the sunflower at was pretty sure sunflower show up at patch 3.0
  6. B&S has 3 sets of BIG 4. 4 guardians hong, jiwan, iksanun & mushin. BIG 4 blue dungeon, pig, spider, gorilla king and double recycled beast. and then the BIG 4 servers mushin jiwan po & cho..

  7. Blade & Soul: Upcoming Content Teaser

    whether they can release a class has more to do with the skill balance patch rather than the story patch. remember blade cancer? available in beta. whenever they release the skill update patch to match whatever version korea has is the soonest we can have soulfighter. heck we did not even start with skill patch 2.9 or whatever it was before patch 3.0, and we started with 3.0 skills and that really messed with some classes. so in the end, watch not the story patch, but the skill update patch.
  8. Blade & Soul: Upcoming Content Teaser

    force fighter, soul fist master, kung force master, taichi fighter i will call it whatever i want :haha: btw that prediction sounds very not possible. last year's world championship happened around the end of the year. if NCW wants to send representatives from Murica Canada and EU to the championships they need to give players time to play the class to 50 and sort out the rankings on Arena leaderboards rankings. i would guess force fighter July-August latest.
  9. Weapon Skin for Sword!

    the most difficult thing about that dungeon is forming a party for it because no equipment upgrades come from there. the only ones that do that dungeon are those that would do extra content for the challenge like me. but now it is a good time because of game launch, your best chance of finding a party for it is now.
  10. Hong Mun Sword

    buy it from a NPC in bamboo village for a few copper. unless if they changed that price since the beta, it should be something free players can earn in 1 min.
  11. Best two man team classes

    :feel_good: right because the original poster and partner who are playing this game for the first time are going to research on anicancelling and put points into anicancelling attacks as melee classes right? ...... ranged classes hit first you get that right? without a determined role setup like new players do :confuse: YOU have played this game for months and years..... these ones are new. let them learn and grow
  12. cant mail items to my alt

    again. trade. here is a diagram i did not draw the first time because i typically overestimate the intelligence of the majority of people. your first character <--> friend <--> your 2nd character.
  13. Best two man team classes

    melee + melee or ranged + ranged. don't be chasing the boss around because your ranged partner does not care enough to lower her/his DPS to let the boss stand skill attacking the melee fighter.
  14. This may sound weird but....

    not alone. but yes the costume i like is not for sale and the ones you get from quests is not tradable. i would have sent my skill tree quest costume to my male characters if i could trade them.
  15. Weapon Skin for Sword!

    the first one is only in the viridian coast region. curved blade samurai katana, blue hilt with the little thingy at the hilt that spoils the katana look. a green rank weapon drop, drops from random mobs in that region i think. the 2nd one (my personal favorite) is a level 36 dungeon drop. forgotten tomb i think the place was called. straight blade, red hilt. has a pretty shine. blue rank weapon drop, from the boss chest. requires 3 players to clear the dungeon, a class that can deal with archer, sniper, ranged sorcerer types fast. or just solo it using some hide&seek technique assassin. the white rank ones you see in NPC shops with a similar look cannot be used as skins.
