  1. Giving all skill points in PvP mode

    This thread is... ResidentSleeper
  2. [West]Blade & Soul Launches January 19 2016

    That 3 day head start though, January 16th!
  3. Clarification on the 3RF Arena combo

    Ahh okay, well thanks again!
  4. Clarification on the 3RF Arena combo

    Also, can't you add a single 3RF before the 3X (removing the R) to squeeze out every second of the V stun, since it looks like the PP stun will just overwrite the 3 second stun?
  5. Clarification on the 3RF Arena combo

    I was thinking of 3RF as one single attack... :amazed: thanks for clearing that up. And cheers to everyone who helped out!
  6. Clarification on the 3RF Arena combo

    Was just wondering how would triple kick be activated if Q/E can't even be proced, didn't know it was two separate combos, thanks for clarification. For the V with X combo, if it's V> 3RX > 3RFx4 aren't there only 4 attacks, thus PP won't proc another stun? Or am I thinking this incorrectly, and envisioning a single 3RF combo as a single attack?
  7. Clarification on the 3RF Arena combo

    Wow very neat, but you have two Vs in the ideal combo... isn't the CD very long? Also the combo, "rmb or triple" in 3rf 3rf > rmb or triple, is that triggered after a Q/E?
  8. Clarification on the 3RF Arena combo

    Thanks for the response, so the general combo is, Triple Kick > 3RF(x3?) > Z > 3RF(x3) > V > X > 3RF(x5) > (after pp stun) 3RF(x3) > 4 > 3RF(x3) > C > 3RF(x3) > air combo ? Lol I spent too much time writing my previous post, that I missed your post. To bait a tab escape, I guess I can use both 4 and C for the daze?
  9. Clarification on the 3RF Arena combo

    I've been trying to seek some decisive clarification on the 3RF combo used in arena. I know it involves stun locking and using pp in between the attacks. However, I'm not too sure on what pp does and what the general order of the combo is. Can anyone elaborate on this? Thanks in advanced!
  10. HAHA thanks for the reply, definitely Darker Than Black is an awesome series.

  11. Couldn't help but notice your avatar. Darker Than Black is a really nice anime. :P

  12. Charms?

    WOW thanks for the answer! If there was a way to thank a post, your post definitely deserves one. :D
  13. Buying game-time is a pain!

    Its around ~$20 monthly in Korea, and so far all the sites I know charge ~$25. After all they do need to make a profit.
  14. Some small tips that makes your life easier.

    Hmm... my instinct tells me to just do these dungeons once for the quest and move on. Forget about the weapons and bo-pae, first reach max lvl then worry about weapons and bo-pae. Would you recommend to just go straight to lvling?
