  1. Which race will your FM be?

    Wow, I'm surprised that Yun is currently in the lead. I thought Lyn would be the favored choice. For me, it's Yun. Because Yuns are beautifuuuul :3
  2. Youmukon OP

    I am genuinely more upset with the way NCSoft handled the situation more than anything else. At first when I saw that CMs were reading this thread I was looking forward to seeing how they'll respond. But Julianne's and Youmukon's replies both on the Dojo and on Twitter are beyond disappointing. Maybe Youmukon meant that he "has thick skin", but there certainly are better ways to express yourself. To me, this entire thing feels like information regarding name reservation was withheld from the community, and after crap hits the fan, instead of calming people down, they're laughing in our faces.
  3. About namsoyoo

    I agree with this 1000%. At the beginning of the game I thought I would like Nam Soyoo a lot and Jin Soyun would be my most disliked character. It turned out to the total opposite.
  4. I made a handsome lyn (?)

    omg yaaas bishonen lyns :3 I love both of them! @knusper would you be willing to share the preset as well?
  5. "One hundred consecutive normal punches!"

  6. Beta 3 Patch Notes & Known Issues

    omg Soha's voice. I guess they ARE listening after all. Good job to whoever pushed for this decision in NCSoft management. Now I can't wait to hop online to hear her 'rewritten' dialogue in her new voice!
  7. Oh my gosh Hello Kitty YESPLS I'll never take off that outfit.
  8. Free Chibi Round 4 + Beta Event

    Aww I love it! Thanks Juel <3
  9. Iron Fan Master

    Legend of the Condor Heroes! Just wanted to put it out there that the lead actor, Hu Ge, remains my favorite mainland Chinese actor <3 Thanks ZDestiny for putting this together. I've been saying a fan-wielding class would be sweet and you've captured everything I envisioned the class to be and more c: So much research and thought must've went into developing this concept. I hope Team Bloodlust hires you or at least take a goddamn hint that mashing two existing classes together and calling it a new one is a terribad idea. This class must be available to the Yun and it'll probably be my new main!
  10. Gunner 2016?

    I would love to see a dual-fan-wielding class before anything else, but gunners are still pretty hyped c:
  11. The FM wallpapers are beyond disappointing x_x

      Bread

      I've become immune to abominations like that due to the NA/EU website itself. http://www.bladeandsoul.com/en/game/races/ My favourites are Lyn female and Jin male.

  12. BnS Korea - Story Act 7 Winter 2015
