  1. Lottery Wheel Question

    No, the costumes were permanent in the KR version, and as others have stated it felt fairly easy to get a full set within 10 spins. But the korean version is also P2P, it's understandable that tencent would make changes since their version is F2P.
  2. Can't log into character?

    It's saying you have to pay to continue playing as you have a character that is 16 or higher. If you want to keep playing for free then delete your level 16 char, and you'll be able to play again.
  3. Blade & Soul - Server List [Inactive]

    No updates yet, lol. It's pretty quiet on the dojo server. @muoibeo - If you toss me your ign I will add you to my friend list and try to catch you this weekend.
  4. Blade & Soul - Server List [Inactive]

    Your server is more active and populated with english speakers. The dojo server is misleading because none of them have played past open beta. Unfortunately I realized that way too late.
  5. Question about enchanting and class

    It's regularly scheduled maintenance.... it will be over at 10am korean time. http://bns.plaync.com/news/notice/article/1472
  6. Question about enchanting and class

    Maintenance.
  7. Insane gameplay of Blade Master

    Watching this video makes me feel so inadequate lol. Really fun to watch.. he seems really skilled from what I can tell. Great block timings. I have a hard time with blade master/assassin mobs especially, it was fun to watch how he dealt with the BM boss.
  8. Lith's line-art problem [RESOLVED]

    What version of photoshop? I think what MadGod has told you is pretty much the problem. I can't figure how you'd get a soft line with the pen tool though but that doesn't matter. Basically a crisp hard edge is normally a vector, and when you 'rasterize' something it becomes a raster image, a flat image that can't be resized without losing information. Typically when you draw with the pen tool it creates a path or a vector shape and you have to manually rasterize it... but I can't check for sure right now. Edit: If you select the path and fill it with a colour, it is a raster image.. but photoshop also has vector tools that I won't go into. Make sure 'feather' is at 0 when you do this, the option should be at the top once you have your path selected. (If you enlarge a jpeg it will look pixelated because it's a raster image, a flat image made up of pixels. If you resize vector art it will retain crisp lines, I forget the description but something to do with math... either way you can resize it however you wish and not lose quality.) I think you would have to redraw these lines unfortunately, the first time you did it seems to have been with a soft brush rather than the hard brush MadGod has described. Do a test on a new layer using his method and see if it helps you before redrawing the whole thing.
  9. Hit boxes.

    I actually agree that Tera had decent hit boxes but it's a little ironic, because when I played at launch everyone was complaining about them as well. Sometimes I think people just like to blow hot air because they are bored.
  10. I work full time, lol. So I'm on for maybe 3 hours a night. I'm on when most working people get home, peak time for americans which is normally around 7 to 11 est.

    Aphro I dunno he always seems to be on when I am on lately but I know it's very early in the morning for him.

  11. I don't see you or Nicky on much, are you guys playing less since we're bottlenecked?

  12. Hit boxes.

    Why make suggestions if you don't intend to send them to TBL, and further, if you haven't played the game? Theory-crafting from videos can only hurt when you don't have actual experience of how something works. Videos are subject to ping, player skill and perhaps even other elements we didn't know about at the time. In PVE I haven't experienced problems with hit box. I'll have to reserver my opinion about PVP for a later date. Keep in mind you auto-target an object (player, mob, etc) that is in front of you.
  13. Clarification on new accounts.

    To add to that, you still need to verify a new account with a KSSN (korean social security number). Anyone can make a plaync account, but it must be verified to play the game. The same questions keep getting asked so might as well have the information plastered all over the place.
  14. Just wondering something.

    In other words, they don't both go off, only one will go through. Whoever is faster. As Lightning Killer also mentioned, ping will play a role of course.
  15. Blade & Soul - Server List [Inactive]

    So far, here is the Generic roster, dojo server. Blue faction. Taekyu // Blademaster Aphrodita // Kung Fu Master DragonLily // Kung Fu Master Tsukikko // Blademaster Those are also the only active people left that I know of on this server.. we expect 1 more but I will post when I get them in the guild.
