  1. This is worst !!!!! the money i spent on my half bake legend = my full set vm2 with perfect stat....... i did 3 times, only can get blessing at 8th stage in my 3rd try, then when up to stage 9 it change again...... Now my 10th is 耀光 and only at top 3, 3 out of 5 or 6 ................................
  2. i dont care if it cost me 1000 RMB or 2000 RMB, just the way they made that random stats make me want to puke. Spent 1000 RMB still need RNG for stats? GG 10c. You need to get blessing, then in the blessing weapon still got random max and min stats? so perfect endgame wep = how much? 1000->20000 RMB? such RNG. Now they give reseal can reseal lv 10 wep -> lv 9 wep , yet WE STILL NEED TO BT TO 10 again, and one more time RNG. I have a lv 10 wep and reseal to lv 1, after reBT i got a much worse lv 10 wep? same tier with my old LV 10 and with minimum stats, dont even have the regen 3500 hp prob???????. Im done here. GOOD LUCK to you guys who still want legend wep.
  3. GG 10c, i spent 1700G with out knowing reseal will reduce lv to 1, cost me 3200G for this retard Legendary :joss_stick: :joss_stick: :joss_stick:
  4. Haha true. Being at top 50, their skill are ultra good, godlike xD. And in 50 player, 17 of them can play LBM to it's max potential, 15 can do that with assasin, and just a few people can do that with the rest. ( but they really do need to buff FM)
  5. Pvp in Bns are really hard, and you will have a hard time again Assasin, if you got no exp. BM strong point are burst dps combo, opponent losing their hp so fast so they will tend to make mistake when fight back, spam parry for stun and trigger air combo. But yeah, bm do have a hard time again Assasin, and maybe again KFM also. You need 1st get your Pvp equip, nice mix bopae before pvping, as a bm you can use 2 pve meigung earring. And yeah, Most people use the 20% stun duration time for PVP, which help you alot, you can find it by doing faction daily, and get a stronger one( more hp and crit, same stun duration bonus) by using pvp bean. 20% stun time does help alot, not kidding.
  6. Since the aoe heal wont do much thing, you will love Destroyer shield which protect downed allies or the Summoner cat CPR lol.
  7. Oh fck 4 new dungeon, i should have done my dailies for 2 weeks instead of quitting :( new dungeon, new weapon and no socket hammerT_T
  8. yeah summoner smoke do heal you for 20% over time, not sure about assasin smoke. destroyer and lynBM can grab enemy, and the most important is when you hit enemy at that time you'll regain 2 chi per hit( most people got this skill tree) and you heal more while hitting them.
  9. Dont you see i said KFM cancel realy hard ? and you tend to make mistake, so that's make BM usually got higher DPS than KFM. The perfect cancel of KFM require blocking skill at 4th tier (0.5 sec, and cost 1 chi, recover 4 chi) and for most dps the "2" skill must at 3rd tier which cost 4 chi per hit, so just one mistake you'll messup ->-> overall dps lost. and you must sacrified 10% life steal per hit for that. Thing will like 1 + lb +2 +lb +2 and repeat and it's hard to repeat this while dodging boss attack. For BM you just need ping, LB for slashing? and counter + spam rb? much more easier, that's BM pros. But for surviving at enrage ( which happen all the time in BNS end game dungeon) KFM easier, even noobs can do it, since boss enrage are eazy to learn it's pattern. so that's the reason why most BM deal more Dps than KFM, and yeah this game based on player skill, but for the set of 5 invul skill with low cooldown, KFM beat them all, and all party want a KFM that can do enrage. Trust it or not that's your choice, you can stick with your theory though, i'm just sharing my experience with people who havent played the game, since i've quit cause there nothing more for me to do, tired of waiting for new content. @pole: http://www.youtube.com/embed/zWqLun0Sno4?feature=player_embedded this is a BM with legendary wep, and she got the 30 sec buff at 1st try, after that she tried boss again with 15 sec buff left. The result are 35s.
  10. blade no need canceling, they just slashing if their ping is good ,it's fast, if not then slow. And as i said KFM cancel need really good ping, not like Des, and Step cant do that, so he go for air combo, air combo is a nono on Bosses. As i said, BM deal dps~ 20% more than KFM, since KFM need to cancel to reach highest dps, and it's hard, further more number 4 skill of KFM only at max dps when opponent got stunned and they get 6 chi to hit, not like BM lightning sword. And 20% more is because the cancel very hard :) the main problem is if KFM go for all dps they will lose 10% ls on hit and cost 4 chi each attack, so 2 mistake and they cant attack and must block to continue. If they do it properly and perfect skill they even out dps BM for 20% :) that's why many KFM in korea can soloed Meigung, when for BM just happen after the time attack. So you normal lose DPS to BM but in BNS you have to deal with enrage so often, that's make KFM win. this is prefect
  11. no no you did the research, but KFM cancel need a really good ping, it's different from des, i dont know what to say, just go in the game and ask, for example in loli guild ask Sno, he cant do cancel properly on his KFM, but he do it way better on des. And Step use air combo, that's a huge loss on DPS, and do you see i said BM dps > KFM around 20%?. And NOT EVERY CLASS that can survive through enrage and deal DPS Those who can survive longest and help dps alot are KFM > BM > LynBM, since they got invul skill, and KFM have many of that, 5, and a very long time and low cooldown. And some times enrage usually happen even with finest party, Meigung, Ice store, lion boss on BSH. LOL the fact that KFM can survive well and easy in enrage, make they godlike in PVE
  12. oh there are some information about new story :x increase lv cap? and even new map + dungeon trailer. Time to get back to Bns.
  13. Step got slow AS(high ping) so he cant cancel animation, further more it's no UI cinematic, and the aircombo look so cool lol. Yes sum are abe to tank blue, i've see quite alot, they get block give stealth, drain hp, and the root. But they cant tank while deal whole lot DPS like BM or KFM, that's the truth. And a destroyer hardly can survive through wind enrage at 500-600k hp, the only class that's can survive well at enrage are KFM. And yeah if your team are all good player with high ping then every thing are possible, just got KFM your life will easier. Just like 1st boss Minotaur, got a lynbm or destroyer put him to the position will help you alot, but you can also do fine with out them, or 2nd boss clown, got a BM or KFM tank all 3 minion will better, faster, but with out them you also doing fine. You may see many korean KFM taking on all the boss alone, BM also got but it's harder(and only after the nerf). And only these 2 can do it in Meigung, the rest class cant survive well at enrage, of forgot LynBm, they can survive but cant deal much dps while dodging enrage Ang as i said, KFM can carry people with their solo enrage, BM deal more DPS around 15% (same ping) and they keep bleed good. But between a KFM or a BM you may want a KFM at your party :) And for mixing bopae in pve, you may want mix 4 6 8 spiral (8 got hp) 5 7 tower( max crit ultra rare) 1 2 3 mushin. Based on your Accuary, if you use ware house then you may want 1 spiral for bonus accuary or 3rd tower for accuary and some dodge + parry. That's the best mixing for PVE
  14. No need, if you need tank just go in 1st and deal some Dps, the boss wont change argo till you dead :), and when you block you did increase argo same for KFM and BM
  15. KFM is the only class that can solo Meigung 3rd floor in under 15 mins(timer) now after the patch when they remove it BM can do it, but took way longer. Pain when skip? lb + 2 cancel animation can do lot more dps than aircombo or face smash, atleast 3 times. with decent crit KFM dont even have to use CHI for skill lol. Air combo only use in PVP since the opponent hardly stand still for you to hit =)) that's why they said gem proc stun is imba, since if you got stun by kfm 2 times in their cancel combo, you'll lost half of your hp Use offen get defen, use defend get offen? do you know you cant get HP enhance on your bopae? and the total stats you can get from mix bopae >>> than using full set. Defend stats not important? yes for godlike player, but you need a decent hp which make your life easier, and for KFM + BM , got >15% parry or dodge you wont take dmg when block. For wind god or light when you block you skill take 5->700 dmg. and again, i'm saying that KFM >> BM at pve, since they can do very well at enrage (or hero mode)
