    Chasing down more virginous morsels, extracting their livers, consuming livers, dispensing grudges good for 1000 years as my main course and form of justice for lulz and hardly sparingly... chasing my tail, or anyone's for that matter, even fake ones such as on that dratted Jin outfit that keeps on foiling me, oh oh and bells, janglies, baubles and dangles by the plentifuls. Weaknesses include being scratched behind the ears, between them and under the chin i.e. cuddles.

  1. http://i42.tinypic.com/rir9qt.jpg What does this guy want from me? Doesn't seem to want to complete my quest after carrying the box and stuff and I watched the cutscene.
    1. Limelly

      Limelly

      your exp are all used up for the day wait till tomorrow

  2. So I had my birthday come and go, too bad it was offset by a dream I had that was so out of whack - even for my standards - that rattled me throughout the festive period. Everything felt like deja vu, and I mean everything. = =

    1. Ghastly

      Ghastly

      Dreams are really something. Glad to see it's over for you. Happy belated birthday anyway!

    2. Kitsune

      Kitsune

      Dreams are mystifying, huh? Happy birthday to you. :D

  3. Yes, I decided to combine my love for those two fond mythological favourites under one banner. Hence the name~. I've always named myself after some derivative of a fantastical beast; but mainly if they were canine/vulpine etc. Btw welcome to the boards recent newcomer.

  4. Interesting concept... a Kerberian Kitsune.

  5. Thy poke has broken mine hex of hibernation. What brings thee to my den? ...oh, beta goddamn it. Should've poked me sooner mate hah. Oh well back to TERA for now. xD

  6. Oh dear, what IS it I've signed up to? Good thing I don't suffer from epileptic fits. o_O So yeah, came back from the dead - again - ... arrived at my notification panel to notice it was rather brimming with activity. One of the pokes traced me back to you, so here I am to return fire. *poke* (Yes I am always this eccentric in my manner of speech.)

  7. 3 months in the future, but better late than never. I've spent my days whiling away back in Aion actually; and that is the reason as for my sudden disappearance. Overall I grow weary of the wait on pretty much every durn MMO that's worthwhile to play/keep tabs on lol.

  8. HAIL, stranger

    how are you?

  9. Ey I'm an ex maplestory player, I'm used to it.

  10. Best get used to the practice of abusing BBCode: underlining, bolding out tags and the like. I know I have hehe. Got into a few misplaced unwarranted scraps because of it.

  11. "But it does reassure me blade masters are not only DPS mules

    You read to shallowly I was actually stating it's great that they are versatile and not just damage dealers."

    I don't wanna cause a ruckus on that thread so I'll say it here, it's a little something to get used to for all the +1 hounds that are out there.

  12. Quick question about gear

    No need for a super fast rundown from me as what needs to be said has been effectively said and summarized in the above post's link; but perhaps what I can add to that in a complimentary manner, is a link to an example of some of the said Bo Pae (the wee tablet pieces) sets and respective bonuses you'll encounter in the game, as per here. You also gain stats from accessories by the looks of things, but that is already covered in the aforementioned article.
  13. B&S Class "Stats"

    Okay then thanks for clarifying. I'm not really that perturbed by it, as I'm frequently told my dream class is one that would put my sometimes described as 'inhuman' prediction skills to good use; much to the chagrin of those in my internet social group as they duel me in various games; static or active format. I was just wondering if I could afford to be lazy every once and again when safety-upkeep is not paramount lol. Which is why I hold that as a consideration, somewhat. Guess I'll just have to wait and see if it will stand to bother me more than it has done so far.
  14. B&S Class "Stats"

    Yea', that skill came from two separate sources on these forums; one here and the other is on the skill tree article from some time ago. Doubtlessly a high-end skill then. Oh, well... I guess from someone who plays from the perspective of a tank in most games, I saw them as a little lacking in the base defensive region hehe. That is the one thing I think I may have to come to terms with eventually once in-game; but maybe my position as a bystander is hurting my means of giving a proper evaluation a fair bit~. If it isn't as bad as I've seemingly observed from this position then by jo', I'm spoken for class wise.
