  1. It says right there at the bottom of the 4th picture. "You cannot delete a character that is currently a member of a clan"
  2. The item exist in other regions so technically it's possible
  3. It does not excuse them for using inconsistent names for skills though... I have a feeling they just used find and replace for many terms and then changed some, but not all, later especially with the skill names which led to serious inconsistencies and confusion later. They also seemed to have translated things without knowing the context. Example. "Second Wind" for some classes is their cc breaker but for summoner, it's their grab counter and for destroyer it's their jump forward with the held ally because the original translation is "Escape" which would have made sense.
  4. I can confirm this is a typo. Sorry for the confusion~
  5. Recruit ~ 7 : 25 6~4: 50 3: 100 2: 250 1: 500
  6. Ah it was a small bug when I was changing the skill names. It's fixed now.
  7. Intro We are Ace, an ally of Bun First and a fresh new English-speaking clan with the intention of recruiting active players who will work together to meet their goals and have fun in the process. We are looking for members who feel passionate about the game and are willing to put forth effort to help each other out as well as helping to progress the clan. We have a laid-back and friendly/fun atmosphere and we constantly strive to better ourselves and the clan. Clan Info Clan Name: Ace Server: Poharan Faction: Cerulean Order Leader: A r (dakaringer/Di'el) Focus: PvX Recruitment Status: Open What do we do? Daily quests, faction quests, dungeons, arena, owpvp you name it. There are so many things to do in this game (well maybe not at launch..) and doing them by yourself is boring. We will be doing group activities, events, dungeon training, pvp training and more! As an allied clan of Bun First, we will also be doing some activities with them as well. Rules & Requirements We have no particular skill/level requirements. Players of all skill levels are welcome. We require you to be active in game. Inactive members will be kicked. But if you need to be away for any reason, be sure to let us know before you do! We know there is this thing called real life. Using our clan's Discord server is a MUST. English please. You don't have to talk. Just be there and when the time comes, listen. Respect your clanmates and the BnS community. Help each other out when possible. No Drama. Be mature. BnSTree login. Although it's not ready just yet, clan activities, schedule, announcements will be posted on the BnSTree:Ace members page. Lasty, just enjoy yourself and have fun. Together! How to Join Contact one of the following members ingame - A r - Silas / Sighlas - NoirElla - Particular - Elseah
  8. I will keep updating until launch. Then maybe I'll have a preview page or something.. Depends on how fast nc will patch stuff. In a previous stream few months ago, they did say skill patches will be patched the same day KR gets them. Lets see if they are telling the truth.
  9. If you have x% increased threat, the mob/boss thinks you're doing x% more damage than you actually are doing.
  10. Like I said you are not using the latest version. There should be a filter box above the list and the list should have trainable indicators and elements. Edit: I added query strings to the js file. See if that forces the browser to update.
  11. SM >= AS > FM >= WL >= DE > BD > BM > KF
  12. Just a guess.. 1. Premium buffs 2. ?? 3. Food buffs 4. Talisman buffs
  13. No it doesn't appears to be. Says the same thing in KR.
  14. no they do not (in arena)
