  1. 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. What faction did you join on this server? I've been playing on and off, but I joined red faction and am only level 24 at the moment.
  3. Using google chrome works fine, but I know that internet explorer had some issues for both myself and a friend. Maybe try using chrome or firefox.
  4. http://bns.plaync.com/ The red button is the top right 'paint swatch'. You click it once you log in, that launches the patcher. Patch the game then it should start.
  5. 이심전심 Taekyu | Class: Blade Master | Faction: Blue | Guild: Generic
  6. Do you have a screenshot of it?
  7. It's a little over $10 in aion's shop for the plastic surgery ticket, so I wouldn't hold my breath on it being cheaper.
  8. Definitely good news. Most of my inventory was outfits, lol.
  9. Has anyone accidentally gotten rid of all quest markers above NPC heads? They show up on the mini map, but NPC names and markers have disappeared... and I don't know what I pressed... ._. Edit: Well, it seems to have fixed itself.... not sure why or what happened, lol. Edit 2: Same problem is back, I guess it was never fixed. Been trying to figure it out but no such luck.
  10. Is everyone's ign the same as their forum name?
  11. If my friend is on, I am usually on Taekyu, otherwise I will be on Aaris. I don't have skype, I usually use ventrilo. There is also a 'vent' feature in-game when in a party, if it recognizes your headset, you can speak to one another that way.
  12. A friend and I are both on 이심전심, I rerolled there to play with him. We play pretty casually at the moment, though, and primarily between 7pm-1am EST. My BM is Taekyu (lvl 15), my FM is Aaris(lvl 3 lolol). So, still noobs. I don't mind helping if anyone is on when I log in tonight.
  13. I guess we can just bid 1 copper or something or just keep trading anything that's important, we are both loot ninjas, lol. Thanks for answering. I guess that works, I suppose I'll have to check different options. If you want to get rid of the auction roll on green items, if you are party leader you should be able to right click on your name in the party and bring up a menu, basically look through the menu until you find one with each colour of item... green will be checked, and you can change it to blue or something higher if you want. I will take a screenshot when I get home (at work at the moment.) As far as your item, if you double click it, it will tell you the type of item you need to open it. Usually it's a yellow or red paper, you usually get them just from leveling or quests, I've rarely run out. Like this item as an example: http://bns.inven.co.kr/dataninfo/item/detail.php?code=810141 it will have a level range on it which should tell you what level of items it unseals.
  14. Does anyone know how to change party loot options? I can't seem to find out anywhere... I've figured out as far as limiting the bidding/rolls to a certain grade (blue and up, for example) but I can't get it to auto round robin between me and my party, each of us just gets what we pick up, it doesn't auto-sort. Is there also a way to stop the bidding option and just roll for the item? I like the bidding, but it's just an old friend of mine and myself so we don't need that feature in our group.
