  1. Better soulshields for PvE and PvP?

    yes, three charms per soulshield piece
  2. Stuck on first quest/young-mook is missing 0.0

    You know that Bns isn't just in America and Europe, right?
  3. A lucky survivor emerges!

    Determination
  4. Young Mook Missing Glitch

    Since its so early in the game.. tried just deleting and recreating your char?
  5. Character Name References/Meanings

    My main is named Undanya (usually U'ndanya but ' are not allowed *sadface*) Her name originates from my time in Final Fantasy 14 where my main is named "U'ndanya Yue". Its a lore friendly name for Sunseeker Mi'qote (cat people). Female Sunseeker Mi'qote names are divided in 3 parts. The tribe she is born in, her given name and her fathers name(the only breeding male of the tribe). U' is her tribes name. Everyone from the Drake's tribes has U'(pronounced Ooh) in it. Ndanya is her given name. Mi'qiote only allow relatives or good friends to drop the tribes name when refering to her. Yue is her father. So her full name would be something like Ndanya from the drake tribe sired by Yue.

  11. The Official Blade & Soul Dojo CBT1 Watch Thread

    well it got posted on page 1 ^^"
  12. The Official Blade & Soul Dojo CBT1 Watch Thread

    Yes i also noticed that, i like this system, it seems really fluid for me. Even the attack speed is ok for me, you can't spam combos like in other games because you have a small delay betweens each attack. It's like a "real" battle.
  13. Music to My Ears

    hehe , when you want some voice fighting style , yes in kung fu hustle is also the Lion's Roar:>
