  1. I can't always get online and check the forums, so yeah I'm on and off.

  2. Ishmael , where are you

  3. what is your server and name in Dragon Nest SEA , my server is west wood and my name is Rebellion4 .

  4. Nexon

    This is exactly why I quit Dragon Nest. it's hard enough playing the game when you can't even start the launcher. There are so many errors, people discover new ones every week. There have been countless times where these errors forced me to reinstall the game entirely. In game its even worse, certain days the lag is unbearable, other days its decent. I remember when NA got 50 cap, for 2 weeks straight it was lag central. Combined with lag, were the countless crashes, If you were in Saints Haven at all, you were destined to crash. I called this the Level Cap Incident, it's probably going on right now with the 60 cap. Nexon also loves to screw its users over with NX so I refuse to give them money. A friend and I decided to rename Dragon Nest to The Nest of No Hope.
  5. Any other ideas for new classes?

    I wanna see Lyn Destroyer :big_smile:
  6. So after thinking about it, Lyn Blade Master might not actually be the 7th class, but rather a spin-off class, meaning there could be 2 spots left out of the 8 classes. Or TBL might not keep the paradigm of having just 8 classes, they might expand when the game grows. So I sat there and thought, "What would the next class be and if there will be more, what would those be?" Personally I feel any of these choices could fit in the game, but what do you think? Oh yeah Don't even consider including Gunner or Archer classes, cause I'm pretty sure we went over that already. Kinda iffy on the Priest though, most Priests in games have a healing ability and B&S theoretically has no healers.
  7. What Are You Listening To?

    Found some good DnB mixes, Jump up & Liquid. and some Progressive House mixes Chillstep/Melodic Dubstep mixes None of these have L.A.O.S.. smh
  8. Male Lyn Blade Master Main, Female Destroyer, Male Jin Assassin.

      That's why SSDs will take over sooner or later. Sorry about the loss though, my hard drive could go any day now too.

      SSD break, too. (Sometimes it's even worse) but not as bad as hybrid SSD.

      Still, everyone should go down the SSD route. Even if it's a hybrid. With the holiday sales across so many online stores, even some of the nicer SSD and hybrids are quite inexpensive right now!

      @Hyu, yes, i knew it was failing and there was nothing I could do about it. Right now i'm relying on my SSD, which was supposed to be a boot drive. Fortunately i'm ordering a new HDD, i should get everything back nest week.

  10. I'm getting a new hard drive soon so I might actually be able to play Blade & Soul more often!
