  1. Sweet Home in 4 hours * o *

  2. Question! I still need one information about the Destroyer. When he jumps (Skill 2 when you're far of mobs / bosses), he will affect them by the stun (blue effect). How can I do to handle bosses by myself, without help or jump + skill 3? Which Skill Tree aptitude is this?
  3. I bet for Aari without hesitation. It really looks like noobs are on every game, even if they are not playing on their region...
  4. Au niveau des chiffres je sais pas exactement, j'ai jamais fait gaffe. Mais de toute façon la différence est notable. Essaie si tu peux de voir à quelle vitesse tu pex avec ton assa, tes enchaînement, etc. Et vois si un coréen est présent, avec la même classe... c'est juste abusé, la release EU va beaucoup nous changer en fluidité. Et bien sûr en PvP ça compte énormément... surtout que la plupart sont hard stuff 45, donc il se peut qu'à certains moment on la sente bien passer :P (ça sent le vécu hein? XD)
  5. Alors en premier lieu il sert à ne pas te faire toucher des projectiles (c'est valable pour toutes les personnes présente dans la zone de fumigpne), en gros c'est super utile en phase de pex et donjon. Ensuite des effets peuvent s'y ajouter via ton arbre de talent, 2 effets sont possible: regen PV pour toi et tes alliés le temps que la fumée est présente ou un dot poison. Le premier est utile, pas le 2ème.
  6. Ahahaha! Surtout que ce sera ma classe principale lors de la release européenne :P A bientôt
  7. Enchanté de vous connaître :D. Hésitez pas si vous avez des questions, ça fait un peu plus de 2 mois que je suis dessus presque tous les jours à faire des test sur pas mal d'arbres de compétences et de classes. Je ne sais de loin pas tout, la langue aide pas toujours non plus :P, mais si vous avez des questions hésitez pas à écrire ici, me mp ici ou en jeu. Voilà mes personnages: Jizzbak: Destroyer lvl 45 Aysleen: Blade Master lvl 45 Maeko: Kung Fu Master lvl 29 Maeka: Assassin lvl 25 Valdis: Lyn Blade Master lvl 24 Maeki: Summoner lvl 19 Ces derniers temps je suis très souvent sur ma Destroyer, mon Assa et mon Summoner (que j'ai créé cet après-midi :P). c4m: attention les whisp sont sensibles à la casse, et faut pas oublier le "X" en majuscule pour AyameX ;). En suivant ce lien, certains guides pourront vous aider déjà un peu pour les marteaux de répartion, charmes d'identification, création de boite de dialogue, etc. tiny.cc/loliforum Voili voilou ;)
  8. Je crois que cette option est bloquée pour les comptes non payants, tout comme l'ouverture des coffres que tu loot, essaie et on verra bien :). Mais franchement j'ai peu d'espoir. Alors la guilde est anglophone bien sûr, mais pas tous parlent parfaitement anglais. Des personnes d'un peu partout jouent ensemble chez loli. Par contre tu pourras être guildé que lorsque tu auras choisis ta faction et pas avant. ça se fait naturellement par les quêtes histoire entre le niveau 23 et 24 selon ton avancée dans le pex. Important: loli est dans la faction rouge! Si tu choisis la bleue tu ne pourras pas nous rejoindre
  9. Hey Mila :D. We, Destroyers, are such a great class in PvP, it's a fact. We got a lot of HP, maybe the best survive of the game and an interesting grab skill (:P), but! We can really protect ourself, we don't have the SS, so we always have to keep some rage point to use the TAB to evade. We can't backstab like all classes and the only protection we have is the shield. This shield regen a certain % of our hp in 4 secondes. Between those 4 sec we can't take any damages. This time passed we need to wait 30 or 45 sec to use it again (CD totally depend of our Skill Tree attribution). If I remember correctly, our jump has a 15 sec CD, it means we are very slow, especially for counter attack. Our DPS isn't huge on a single target, unless we can cancel anim. What is huge with Destroyers? Our CC's! This part is pretty awesome in PvP. We have a lot of advantage but a tonne of lacks too. But i love my class :P.
  10. Oh cool! Tu es français? C'est assez rare d'en voir ici :). Tu es sur le même serveur que la guilde loli (Steparu), la guilde dans laquelle je suis. Essaie de demander directement en jeu (whisp) si tu y accèder. Tu peux peux facilement contacter AyameX, il est là très souvent. Tu peux m'ajouter à ta liste d'amis en jeu si tu as des questions: Jizzbak. A plus! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Oh cool! You're french? It's quiet rare to see french people over here. Good news! You're on the same server as loli's guild (Steparu). I'm a loli's member. Try to ask IG if you can come in. You easily can whisp AyameX, he's here almost all the time. Add me on your friend list IG if you got questions: Jizzbak. Cya!
  11. Question about the Summoner, Fishcake give us a video, this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=myxvoOEz4Iw Where can we custom our kitty like this? EDIT: I found it! You can find a Cat in City. Talk to him and customize him :). Every city got different skin
  12. Huh?! New Game Way is down O_O" ?

  14. i bought it months ago on their official website. It's just an alpha but I think WarZ could be an awesome game

      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.
