    Thieves Den
  1. Wulin Or Huntian Faction ? Your Call

    Whichever one has the doboks that look best on my character :matrix:
  2. Thieves Den - crimson

    Hello! I'd also like to join if you'll have me. :joss_stick: Do we need to register on the guild forums too?
  3. LBM and the Destroyer are the easiest in terms of control, I'd say. Once you have the timings down the class is pretty straightforward. The summoner is a bit more work since you've also got the cat to look out for. If the cat goes down, it's usually a matter of time before the summoner follows. But that aside it's a very versatile class overall. If you're looking for a tank, there's the Blade Master and KFM, who are both also good at dps.
  4. Group/party Leveling Dynamics?

    You probably already know this as it's pretty obvious, but it's a lot faster to progress when you're playing with more people.
  5. When you first entered the world of BnS and was presented with the character creation screen, how did you begin? I looked at the different races first and picked which I liked best, from there I chose my class. Although most people probably do it the other way around and choose by the class they want to play. What do you think about when you customise your character? For example if you chose the Lyn race, were you thinking of trying to create a super cute character? I start out with a general idea of what I want my character to look like and see what fits. I actually made my first Lyn tall and fierce-looking, there were already so many cutesy types running around so it was refreshing. I try to focus on the personality I've got in mind, I guess. How did you come to decide on which race to choose? I was pretty torn between the Kun and Lyn races, but I liked the background story of the Lyns more, so I stuck with that. Also partly because their design really stood out. Do you create your character based on your real life appearance or your ideal appearance? Neither really, it was more of a random made-up character I came up with. Did you actually play with all the slider settings? Yes, it was actually pretty fun (and funny). How long did you spend creating your character? Somewhere around an hour(?), I'd say. One the main things that drew me into the game is the detail and all the outfits. Then of course, the actual game-play.
  6. Help Stuck On 5Th Quest In Bamboo Village

    yeah, you either need to equip, combine, or break down. just look at which icons are glowing.
  7. Looking For A Guild "or" Recruit For Mine

    what faction are ya?
  8. B&s Is Censored

    yeah, it wouldn't be so bad it they didn't make them look so weird. its obvious they put no effort, they could have at least made them look nice.
  9. China's Server Faq And " I Need Help " Thread

    Does everybody get the same thing from dungeons? also, how do you sell items on the auction? much thanks
  10. B&s Kr Free To Play?

    That's the spirit !
  11. NEW emotes for all races

    The hug is really cute, though height might be a problem for the male Gon and Jin one.. They should add a sit animation too!
  12. I think force master, just because it's a ranged class (and having a really neat-looking weapon) along with LBM
  13. Kun can also be a force master(But they're only female)
  14. My name is originally Greek, if I was to change it I would probably like an Irish name, they sound really unique.
