  1. [Guilde FR] Arkalium recrute

    Vous cherchez une guilde ? Parfait ! Notre recrutement est toujours ouvert ! N'hésitez pas à venir faire un tour sur arkalium.com
  2. Bonjour, tout le monde, Je me présente, Maeko, GM de la guilde Arkalium. Voilà, Blade & Soul arrive enfin en Europe, nous l'attendons de pied ferme depuis quelques années maintenant. Certainement comme beaucoup d'entre vous, et quoi de mieux que de jouer en groupe :)? Arkalium commence son recrutement dès maintenant ! Et voici quelques petits mots pour nous présenter :) Arkalium, c'est quoi ? Arkalium est une guilde créée par deux joueurs sur Star Wars : The Old Republic en 2011. A cette époque, la guilde était une petite infrastructure composée d’une poignée de joueurs motivés par le contenu qu’offrait ce jeu. Aujourd’hui, la guilde reprend son activité mais à plus grande échelle et devient multigaming. Nos fondations reposent sur tous les aspects proposés par le jeu sur lequel nous nous trouvons, à savoir, le PvE, le PvP et le RvR. Plus qu’une guilde, Arkalium est une communauté de joueurs passionnés recherchant la performance de jeu en groupe, tout en tissant des liens forts entre les différents membres. Arkalium a un projet ambitieux, du moins avec ceux qui le souhaitent, se hisser au plus haut niveau des plateformes sur lesquelles est implantée la structure. Objectifs MMO L’objectif principal d’Arkalium est de construire une communauté solide dont les fondements sont simples : l’envie d’avancer ensemble, le respect et le fun. Le deuxième aspect est orienté vers l’aspect compétitif des MMO. Selon les jeux sélectionnés par la guilde, les objectifs peuvent évidemment différer, Guilde VS Guilde, PvP en arène (solo ou groupe), Down PvE HL… Et le troisième et dernier aspect concerne le e-Sport. La guilde sera présente sur les jeux qui proposent des tournois, tels que les arène PvP de Blade & Soul. Ce que nous recherchons sur Blade & Soul Arkalium est composée de quelques personnes ayant déjà joué à d’autres versions du jeu de long en large, nous mettons un point d’honneur à atteindre le contenu HL rapidement et d’aider au maximum les personnes ayant besoin d’aide à progresser. Blade & soul se veut être un jeu riche et la guilde compte bien exploiter au maximum ses possibilités, PvE HL, PvP en arène (solo ou 3v3) et e-Sport. Des events seront organisés afin d’animer nos soirées en guilde, de vous aider à passer du contenu, passer du temps ensemble et simplement profiter du contenu In-Game général. Nous sommes ouverts d’esprit, n’hésitez donc pas à nous faire part de vos souhaits et ce dont vous avez besoin, nous nous ferons une joie d’organiser ces événements pour vous. Serveur : Dokumo Faction : Légion Ecarlate Quelques règles simples 1/ Vous devez être majeur. 2/ Votre pseudo ne doit pas porter préjudice à Arkalium. 3/ Soyez présents autant que possibles lors des events organisés par Arkalium, dans la mesure de vos possibilités bien évidemment. 4/ Vous ne laisserez jamais l’un des vôtres sans défense ou dans le besoin. 5/ Vous ne chercherez à faire aucun profit sur un membre d’Arkalium. 6/ Il est interdit d’enfreindre les règles fixée par les éditeurs et développeurs. 7/ Avoir un langage correct en jeu et sur le forum est obligatoire, aucun langage SMS ne sera accepté. 8/ Vous devez posséder Mumble ainsi qu’un micro fonctionnel. Vous vous connecterez sur le vocal Arkalium, lors de votre connexion en jeu. 9/ Le serveur principal d’Arkalium devra être votre serveur de référence, celui ou vous passez le plus clair de votre temps. 10/ Vous vous tiendrez au courant des sorties, des nouvelles, des communiqués du forum régulièrement. Nous ne viendrons pas vous chercher à chaque fois. Pour en savoir plus sur nous et postuler, rendez-vous à cette adresse
  3. Quest Translation?

    I have a problem with the TW server and this quest. NPC's don't give us the gem like he do on KR's. Hhow to do this quest now ?
  4. Warlock - TW Server

    Oh god, I didn't see that it already released O_O. I'm so sorry :(. thanks a lot for all your answers
  5. Warlock - TW Server

    Hey guys ! I didn't find anything about a Warlock's release date on TW server. Can you help me about that ? Thanks a lot
  6. What About The Classes, Right Now

    Yay that's it ! Thanks a lot everyone. Yesterday, I played my BM and Sin to Lv. 10 and I got a revelation. I played a LOT Blade Master and he's boring me. Sin did't seems to be my thing, but I dunno, Lv 10 is not enough to make a good idea. Well, maybe i'll play it later or take him to at least Lv 20. I finally run my KFM to Lv 15. I love it he's really dynamic ! I think it's gonna be KFM or Sin, we'll see about that. I'm not so familiar with Sin's gameplay, that's especially why i'm confused about that choice.
  7. Hi everyone ! It's been a long time that I didn't come outta here :O. Hope you all ok ! I got questions about BnS, i didn't follow patches for the past year, how's the game now ? I want to come back in and I need some advices (plus / less) about the classes. I played all classes and had a BM and a Destroyer max level (mostly full stuff) and the others were Lv.25 minimum (expect the LBM - too boring for me at this time). I know I'm vague but I don't know, I maybe will play something different that I knew 2 years ago. PS : I love PvP and PvE, I know the player make the class, but I want a good class for PvP (I hear a word far far away.... Blaaaaaaaaaade Masteeeeeeer) XD. PS : I can't play Summoner, he's fun but this is not my favorite gameplay :) Thanks for advices ! Have a good day / night !
  8. Lbm - Less Boring ?

    Hi everyone ! I got a question, is the Lyn Blade Master more fun and challenged now he has been revamp? I tested it last year / 2 years ago and honestly… He was so easy that i cannot play this class. So question, is he less boring that before?

    1. Radii

      Radii

      I bought my a few months ago too. Im considering getting a refund since it was such a failure and the company running the game is SO, and I mean SO unprofessional. The game is so poorly optimized too, I got like 10 fps.
