  1. Ah k , because someone said you did, or someone with ur name , and I was trying for 2 hours , there is an invis wall atm , dont think its possible. This is super random from me btw. xD

  2. Not yet, but I should :o

  3. Did you wallclimb up the tower in orchard of souls? :O

  4. I will make more characters and make both probably :)
  5. To be honest the dabok system is great for PvE servers... PvP should always be active on PvP servers on the other hand. Therefore they should have PvP and PvE server so people who enjoly PvP can play on a PvP and those who dont can play on a PvE server. So not some weird care bear.. Having PvP active all the time would make the game lots more fun and community active, there should be some sort of karma penalty system. http://lineage2.stratics.com/content/features/pvp/
  6. Well I watched the origianl and god that sucked, this is atleast better!
  7. Thanks , for the insightful answers. You have convinced me a bit more, don't really like the one shot thing though, maybe is gear dependent?. But I like the fact that you can probably use a lot of ice skills versus the other classes. I wonder if the class excels in 3 v 3 due to the fact that it seems to have a supportive role in a party. Anyhow thanks, I can't wait to play and try it out. Love to know as much as possible before I pick a class :) I can say that after playing blade and soul as a force master, it is indeed very hard and has a very high skill cap. Its like a Mage in wow but you have to aim and look at the debuffs. Must say that the UI in the game is bad, cause its hard to see some things, but acceptable. Things I did not like was that my shock wave missed at close range for some reason, don't know if it has some sort of min range, or might have been the servers fault. Did not like the standard key binds, really terrible to have fireball on R while you move with D, you lose control instantly, thankfully you can rebind ( I recommend E for fire and shift E for ice). Seems to be really lacking customization of spells early game, I'm level 11 and I have the same skills from level 5. I will try out the other classes as well but I think that fore master might potentially be one of the hardest to master because of the kiting aspect. I wish it had some more combos for the sake for complexity, but might be more once you're max level. This game is definitely one of the best mmos I've played combat wise in a long time and I think PvP will be really fun and challenging.
  8. Most cases today at that price range have good airflow, but if you want a silent one I would go with Fractals cases. I mean any silverstone , fractal , cooler master, antec , nzxt case should do at that price range. The fractals define is very quit and good looking. I don't like the look of most cooler master cases unless you really want to show it of to your friends I suppose, I guess clean cases are for the older people. But if you really want a computer case that has the best airflow and such you should use Google, a lot of tech forums do this kind of research. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811352011 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811146077 I mean the fans do a lot of difference as well, so consider buyig a cheaper case with a lot of fan spots and buy some good fans. I recommend Scythe Gentle Typhoon, I don't know where to buy them from the states if that is where you live but yeah use Google. But there are some other good fans as well, the stock fans in most cases suck in airflow and rpm, and have bad ppm if a cool case is what you're looking for. http://ncix.com/products/?sku=70596&vpn=D1225C12B5AP-15x2&manufacture=Bundle%20Deals
  9. #1 Death Note #2 Full metal alchemist ( Both of them) #3 Fate / zero #4 Code geass #5 Durarara! / Darker than black ( They both get the nr 5 spot)
  10. Good day people of the forum! Well I've seen some videos and read a bit about this game for a while and I am hooked and hyped to play it. The thing is that I am aiming to play a ranged character for once since I always seem to pick melee. And I am tiered of being the underdog, since its way harder to play melee in most games pve and pvp wise, not because the skill cap is higher but because you have less fov, need to be in close combat, very dependent abilities that close the gap. And the fact that if you have a bad internet which I have at the moment melee is even harder to play. Enough ranting...! My main question is since I read that the Force master has a smaller combo tree I wonder if its true that the class is easier to play. The thing is that I want a class that would equal to the mage in wow in skill cap i.e if you are a better player you will do much more impact even with bad gear. The main reason for this is that the mage has many crowd control abilities and you need to "have many balls in the air at the same time". And I don't want to play a class that I cant evolve into and get a better play style etc.. Well I am not the best at explaining things mostly cause I don't "proof read" my own post. TLDR Does the Force Master have a high skill cap (ceiling) even tough supposedly their combos don't chain very high. //sincerely King File
