  2. Taiwan Gangster Outfit UPK

    I don't know about him but I'd like it for Jin Female pls :)
  3. Infinite tower build?

    Keybindings -> Functions -> Special Skill Slot. This is also the same button for 3on3 Tagging and stuff.
  4. Infinite tower build?

    Disgusting how much of a difference Baleful makes. I wish I had that luck with Prem stone crafting. 5 Tries 5 Fails. Btw. you do realise that you can rebind the special Key Hotkey so you don't have to click it with your mouse right? Why do you choose Plague Mist over Choke Bomb against summoners btw.? Since there is a chance that they could move out of the Plague Mist before all 5 stacks.
  5. Looks amazing :big_smile: Please post the config asap :joss_stick:
  6. Any tip in Tower of Infinity for Summoner?

    Looking at the current Rankings in both EU and NA it does seem that Summoner has the easiest time by far in Infinite Tower. So I can't really see you having trouble unless you are very undergeared. Try to just PvE them down while using all the CC at your disposal.
  7. Infinite tower build?

    This is the build I am using Currently Floor 41. I don't actually use Dark Strike that often. I often times prefer spamming LB RB to have more Chi to play around with. Basically you want to keep the enemy stunned/dazed as much as possible. After you knock them into the air, don't use LB. Instead just use Moths into snare on ground and then restealth. Aircombo just wastes time imo. When they are webbed to the ground you can easily place Mine, X into 1 for a long daze combo. Just make sure to use mine before X so they don't roll out in case they use F. While Sweeping Gale is on CD you can use Hook Kick to get back into stealth for another free stun. Also if you got nothing to chain anymore after a stun use SS -> Swap -> 1 -> New stuns. You can combo these NPC's for days. I really enjoy tower as well. The only thing I dislike is how hard you can get screwed over depending on which class you get. As Shiune pointed out, SMN and FM are terrible. However FM is ok as long you don't let them get Frost Orbs. The best time I have against KFM and BM, for obvious reasons, It's kinda funny that these NPC's have HM skills that we can't get yet tho. Like Rising Dragon on KFM or Strangling Roots in FM.
  8. Moving my BNS talks here

    :smooth: Just banned another spambot :big_smile:
  9. I love that engage on Mushin. Quite the sick idea tbh. That Dragonchar dragonchar damage was insane as well and that was with only 5 AP stacks. :surrender:
  10. SSP weapon crate nerf incoming

    Im happy. Cause my faction had 1 speedhacker that I reported multiple times over the past 2 weeks, who never got banned. Now he won't be able to steal my kills from me anymore and I can go back to making Prestige of the Crimsons <3
  11. Only Need oathbreaker belt for Asura

    I assume they decided that pretty much a couple of hours before they made that post. So there wasn't much communication to be done beforehand.
  12. People camping base for Prestiges point

    While I'd say it's most likely not bannable. It is a major dick move and I would certainly try my hardest to get some ppl from the other faction to kill them.
  13. about piercing status

    Most bosses have 10% defence in this game. There are a few exceptions from this, these are all Augerite bosses (Those big stones guys), the Destroyer in mushin Tower F1 and Blackwyrm. These have 25% defence. You basically you don't need more then 10% as it will go to waste against almost any boss. Upgrading your Accessories will already put you well beyond 10% so don't bother enchanting any Soulshields with Pierce.
  14. Im already rank 9 thanks to the Best Friend boxes they had in the Hongmoon Shop. Spend only 150 gold and got from Rank 6 to Rank 9 and also got tons of usefull items :big_smile:
