  1. I did say pvp dobok.
  2. You can have world pvp anywhere besides dungeons, and towns, all you have to do is put ur pvp dobok on and your set to fight.
  3. Um being able to use a hat or an Accessory from other outfits is mix and matching, which was hes question in the first place.When you make your own game, you can add your dye system if you want to, but until then nothing we can do really, just ask for it and maybe they will implement it, Besides from what i can see they add new dobok designs constantly, To tell you the truth the fact that the doboks in B&S don't actually add anything to the stats is why i love it so much, And usually in games i don't like the look of the armor, which is most of the time.
  4. You can mix and match in B&S.
  5. Well like you said, you haven't played B&S so i don't think you should comment on the Questing, or the fact that if its grind leveling or not , in which i have asked many people that actually play it and they don't feel that way.
  6. Heard them all from beginning to end. #1 Jin #2 Gon #3 Kun #4 Lyn Gon in the beginning was horrible but gets better, Lyn and Kun was sorta hard to pick which one but this is what i decided.
  7. As i see it, your basically paying around $200-500 if not more then a Desktop computer with the same amount of performance in mobility.
  8. Lol Alright the active skills switch between each scenario, lets say the mob is knocked down the active skills u can use while that mob is knocked down will replace the once you currently have.Another scenario would be if the mob is in the air, your current skills would be swapped for the skills you can use while the target is in the air, so on and so forth with each changing scenario.
  9. I would have to say Gon. To be perfectly honest the females have the most aesthetically pleasing out of all the other races in my opinion of course, now to me the male are more to my choice cause to tell you the truth the Jin male looks sorta feminine to me. Anyways yea Gon is my preferred choice over all the other races.
  10. There are in game shops that sell them for in game gold, some from quests, Mob drops, and some from Real world money.
  11. Forgot about gems :embarrassed:
  12. Ok apparently you guys don't read "I'm putting together a second PC with old parts, and I have 2 options for the processor" meaning he already has the parts lol , so there's no point in saying "if you do not already own those old processors do not buy either one of them.You'll regret it if you do."
  13. Well its pretty stupid to have an assassin that cant stealth that's one of the reasons they are assassins.
  14. 1.Yes every class has just one weapon type. 2.KFM is just one item weapon that when u put it on goes to both ur hands. 3.The armor in this game is just for looks some have 3 pieces some have 2 or 1. 4.there are rings and necklaces. 5.there are no +1 +5 systems but there is where you can add stats to the bo pae which is what gives you ur stats along with rings and necklaces.
