Blade & Soul

  1. How Do Legendary Weapons Work?

    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. How Do Legendary Weapons Work?

    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. How Do Legendary Weapons Work?

    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. Problem With Killing Faction Area Poison Dragon

    For me, i got same problem like you, 10-20 sec delay, then dc after that when i using TGP. I switch to xunlei and that's great, i can finally hit the dragon, drink the antidote lol. No more skill lag and disconnect. And you no need in a 4-6 man party. The Dragon now bugged. No mater how much dps you deal, you still can get 0 soul and 0 box, not even quest. The trick here is to hit dragon ASAP , and you'll get box. Last week i can only get 7 -> 15 souls per dragon. After this bug, i always get 15 souls and 30 souls at weekends :feel_good: Lasthit the boss will give you a special box also :misdoubt:
  5. Which Mobs Drops The Poison Dragon Stones?

    Imperial Army guys, only in Misty map. Can drop lingshi bag and dragon key also. But the rate is like %%$%#$#$#. So if you want farming 1000 of those for the dual ops gem then GG. Just use gold and buy it directly from F5. Cost you from 1000+G for purple and ~1200G for yellow. Yellow hard to find though.... Or hunting dragon and pray for it. i've both of those and they're not that good. Give you 8 More attack, and cost you~ 2500 G. The yellow help you alot in PVP though, You're a BM so you should get it. Locking down ppl give you 100hp+ regen from the belt = 132 hp per hit. Good for destro + Bm + KFM. You may want to buy a Yellow gem and dragon ring 1st .. better than the Purple 3 attack, waste money. Token you can keep and exchange purple 3 attack when you have 1000!!!
  6. Misty Forest Dragon

    and the money use to buy talishman, ~4g ea on my server ................. feel so tired now
  7. Misty Forest Dragon

    i cant even hit, keep dc half way. Huge delay when they start the fight, either the dragon killed me cause i have delay so cant drink antidote or i disconnect........
  8. Hitpoints And What To Sacrifice For Them

    For pve you dont need that much pierce, and hit. Hit is good, but you only need 104% for pve, only if you want to do 4man bsh then you'll need higher. So prepare 2 extra piece 6 bsh and 4 mushin, if you want 4 man bsh, if not just go with 102-104% hit. which is around 450? i dont remember exactly. Mix set for More hp, never go full crit, only if you're gosu player can dodge all boss move, never make mistake and got ping <50ms. You should have 16k hp atleast, if want bsh 4 you will want around 18-19k, so tiger boss wont 1 spin Ko you... .. So in mixed bopae, there's many ways, you should based on what you can get 1st. Dont really need to active all the set bonus, it isnt a must..... If want hp, 1 and 3 mushin is a must..... that way you can keep your crit high and still got lot's of HP. For Hit, choose either 6 BSH or 4 mushin, or see if you can get which one with max stats :D finding max stats piece so hard. If got 6 BSH then you can go with 4 BSH for BSH set bonus. If got 4 Mushin then you can go with 6 Lanlan for more hp. Or if you think ~102% hit is enough you can choose 6 Lan lan + 4 BSH for HP + dodge, this wont active mushin set bonus but you still have more 1000+ hp
  9. Which Item Should I Upgrade First?

    1st upgrade your Ring + Earing, since horn now so cheap. Then Upgrade your POH to BSH one, Camp boss in 24 man mode and find 5 - 7 - 8 max crit and refine them with crit. the rest can be replaced with mushin or bsh, but you need 5-7-8 bsh for PVE. Then you will want a Purple bracerlet, since it's so good, give you 380 + crit, ap and more crit dmg. Later upgrade your wep, if it have pentagon socket then buy +25 AP gem, cheaper.... or just creat an penta socket
  10. Server Is Up

    forgot open booster,. relog and cant login again =((
  11. They Banned The Mighty Me.

    LOL, tons of streamer used the Korean client mod, uncen patch, tool remodel like BNS lamp, DPS calculator. THey took screen shot and post in BNS.QQ forums everyday, not a single got banned.
  12. I Cant Log In

    Ok guys, here's my problem. Ytd night, i got this error, tried restart computer then it's fixed. Today, i got it again....... Like tried 7-8 times than can login once. The connection seems normal, i can play fine. and yeah now i cant even log in Once. So i tried to Use TGP booster. Download from tgq.qq.com ( download new file so it wont need updated, if not you'll be stucked at updating ) Using TGP will bypass that region choosing Phase so you can connect to game.... Most of us now just stuck at that phase..
  13. Anyone Already Start The Dice Rolling Event?

    Yes, 2 little butterflies. Nothing different from Vip qingqong effect, just replace 2 light fairy with 2 butterflies
  14. New Updates! Huge Amount Of Stuff

    can i unlock all skill tier, or just 1 skill fixed each class ?
  15. Po Wha Ran Rage

    I feel your pain bro...... Me and my friend can duo the fish boss till 100k hp in 4 man mode, we just need more dps, tried F8 but they always messup. And one day we met a CN destroyer =))) and now we farm with 3 people :x So you better find some buddy though, try to talk with some chinese ......
