  1. Best soulshield?

    Is the best soul shield still the mushin Naryu combo?
  2. It's spread. By the logic you are basing the game on, yes you can do the hardest dungeons and get good gear(plural as to you have to mix said gear) being bopae for your basic health crit and defense. However you will need to grind dailies , grind mats, and pvp to get the upgrades in weapons and accessories. If you were to get the best bopae in the game and only have true profane you wouldn't even be considered relevant in damage. And you can reverse it too.
  3. And 150,000 gold. Quit now so the strong ones may be recognized.
  4. I ask a simple task of you young warriors. All I ask is that you pay attention to said bosses health. That's all I ask. And this guys gold count my god.... Now get some lube because I'm sure it goes without saying that it's not gonna be a steamroll to get 722 AP Legendary weapon and Legendary bopae. When that level 50 content hits it is up to us martial artists to turn into Chuck Norris Let this motivate you, Cricket. Now leave and farm your dailies and moonwater tears Young Jyansei!
  5. Soul shield help

    So what pieces of Mushin do I prioritize and what pieces of BSH? I've seen guides but have been told they aren't the same as NA server so... Also I'm stuck at profane level 10 weapon because soul stones and moon water trans stones are so expensive lol I only have 32gs
  6. Trying to build a high end pc. Need help

    Saving does a lot of good for you ;) thank you so much though
  7. I responded to your post. I kind of need more info if you can respond to my reply about the high end pc

  8. Trying to build a high end pc. Need help

    Ok so upgrade to an i7 6700k Is the 980 Ti still a valuable choice for the gpu? What motherboard(s) would you recommend? Like I said I don't really have knowledge for these things( I'm only 15) and there aren't many guides for them. So which motherboards? Is the 980 TI still relevant? How long would it take me to over clock with the provided motherboard Another thing.... Does it matter the mouse or the keyboard? Cause I hate Logitech accessories I'm planning on getting corsair accessories
  9. As the title says, I am attempting to build a better pc then the one I have. Whether or not it's considered high end... I'm not too sure. Specs: Windows 8.1 Pro AMD Athlon 100W 3.4Ghz Processor Gigabyte AMD FM2 A88X Dual-Link Motherboard I use a Medialink(300 Mbps) at 2.4ghz for my internet if it's is relevant at all Cooler Master HAF 912- Mid Tower Computer Case with High Airflow= The case I use Corsair Builder Series CX 600 Watt ATX/EPS 80 PLUS (CX600) = The fan I use Corsair Vengeance Blue 8 GB (2x4 GB) Logitech Mouse and Keyboard ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ What I want to upgrade them to the GPU and Processor to, MSI GeForce GTX 980 Ti i7 3770k 3.4 GHz(Plan on Overclocking) Quad-Core Processor What else would I have to upgrade to make this computer the best it can be? Would my current fan system be able to handle the GPU and Processor I want? If not which components would I need to upgrade my build to these things using the HAF I also plan on getting 16gigs worth of memory Please no half-assed answers..... I need real answers to these questions. My budget varies from $800-$1200 so i'm pretty free

  11. How good are these pieces?

    i7 3770k OC'ed to 4.2 GHz (Air Cooled) - $299.99 MSI GeForce GTX 980 Ti DirectX 12 GTX 980TI GAMING 6G 6GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP- $659.99 16 gigs Do corsair mouses and keyboards make a difference or are they like any other keyboard?
  12. So I am currently a level 43 Kung fu master(will be 45 within the next two hours) And I am confused What soul shields should I be farming for endgame or just for the best amount of crit I can receive right now? Where can I get moon water transformation stones? I'm currently stuck on Awakened Infernal Gauntlets because 8gold for a trans stone is rather hefty right now.
  13. Can Non-Vip Survive This Game?

    XD you are quite the pessimistic. It's just a question
  14. You're wrong. Look up a game called Dungeon Fighter Online. Then know that the game has hit about 20,000 players. Then look it up one more time just to see if you can find what's appealing about it. You can't. Not unless you play it yourself.
  15. (Poll) Outfit or Doboks?

    Am I wrong to say every l say every Loli is a certified ninja?
