  1. BM Help!

    Yeah, I agree, it's just I don't know any rotations now. Plus the legendary I got was a gift by CN long time ago, maybe some remembers it haha. The biggest problem right now is, that my damage is absolutely awful - my gear is so old, that I just have no words. Take a look: http://i.imgur.com/Zc30WJy.png :surrender: I pretty much need help on where to get items if it's still possible. :) Because I'm out of ideas where to get stuff now.
  2. BM Help!

    Hello guys, so I just recently decided to head back to CN - I had Win. 10 and I just moved on to private servers(you know which I'm talking of haha). So, I'm back. And I'm confused af. What's with the wheel of fate weapons? They're no longer upgradeable? Seems like currency did change too, also the values - bopaes, accessories and so on. I'm literally confused what items I should be getting - bopaes, accessories and weapon. Huh? When I logged in to my old BM account, I just realized it sucks like hell - I couldn't even kill a single enemy, I literally forgot all the rotations, combos and even skill trees(I found one in the forum just a few minutes ago for PvE). I'm currently at 46lvl, and I think of starting fresh because at the moment, my 46lvl character sucks so badly, that I dunno if it's worth trying to fix it. I mean, I dunno where I should be getting weapons and accessories at this level, because they're SOOO outdated that I have lol. My ring is the one we used to get from BSH, just not the final boss, but there was a mini boss dropping that ring. Weapon, well, I have 2 - one is Huo Pao Lan weapon, another is a legendary weapon(265 dmg) that I got a long, long, long time ago. I dunno, I 'prolly haven't played like for a year now? I wish you could help me out a bit and tell me what to do, because currently I'm in a dead end. I'll upload a picture of my inventory of what I've got for you to be horrified. :big_smile:
  3. Gems

    No, there is no talisman that can make it tradeable, however so far I knew, it was possible to seal weapons after they're unsealed, but I don't know if +10 can work and if you will be able to trade it after sealing though.
  4. Upcoming Patch

    I have no Chinese language experience, but after some time trying to put things in a different way, I think: Old and new legendary weapon ?? conditions(stats maybe?) optimization. Gems embedded in the old legendary weapons will not be able to be exchanged to new legendary weapons or old legendary weapons will not be exchanged if they're embedded with gems.... kinda confused.. You will not be able to exchange old legendary to new legendary weapons - that's quite clear.. Nevermind, Radeyz was faster than me while I was writing stuff. :)
  5. [Event] Micro-Channel Exchange Points

    Click me, prove it, and I'll click back please.
  6. Xunlei Payment Password Setup, Please Help! :(

    Forum rules doesn't allow asking such things, please respect the rules. About this, just surf the net and try find out yourself, I'll try to search for something and give you my skype-ID if I find something. Good luck.
  7. Where To Get This Item ?

    I don't really know where, but I just want to tell, that it's a huge waste of money and huge waste of time, good there was an event to get the result of these two weapons... good luck you, though I'll try to find something out
  8. Good Fight?

    I didn't get it, what combo do you do after triggering flame wheel? Maybe you could send me PM your skill build? I'm VERY confused with my BM after latest skill update, i.e. I suck now, I just don't know what my skills should be like... The fight was good, though you started starving at the end, but I liked the survival instinct at the end, haha. I would like to know your combo, as I see, most of times you stun, get in air the enemy, then use the flame wheel and air combos again.
  9. Some New Features?

    Hello, I'm here to ask a question. Today, I've got a quest which told me to go for the girl we defeated in the most latest episode available in main story, she gave me some talk and teleported me to Mushin Tower to fight that guy, of course I failed, jeez, he didn't even let me to get up... anyway, after I died, I talked to that guy and the mission was completed. I was teleported back to her and she gave me a reward - 50 Silver. Anyone knows what's the point of this quest, and also, how to get DD and AA skills? I'm a blademaster, in need of it. I have configured my skill tree by Vivacity's skill build but did some little changes for some skills. Also, a month ago maybe, there was an event for pohwaran, where you kill a mini-boss and get 1 white stone. After collecting 12, I used them to take a purple weapon that was an exchange for them, the weapon is a done work of making 2 pohwaran weapons into 1, I want a guide how to get the weapon to be end-game weapon. Thanks in advice.
  10. Difference Between Ch Ping And Kr Ping

    For me, Chinese and Korean servers gives me HUGE difference. With the connection I use at the moment, on Chinese version I get ~500ms without boosters and 290ms with IPMana, while on Korean version I don't need any boosters at all, my attacks works just PERFECT without any delay that I could notice, in my opinion it's about 150-200ms, because with WTFast I get 300ms by India server and it gets slower than without the booster(way slower), also I live in EU Center(Lithuania), so I'm half world away from both countries, Korea is even further for me.... but it has better servers indeed.
  11. I finally created character, gonna travel today/tommorow so no time to level up(also huge internet increase after I arrive!), message me when you are going to be online. Nick - iWinterx
  12. High-Res Textures

    Sorry for bumping this thread, community, but I think it's not really possible to even change the files, because it would take a lot of time, but of course it is possible to make it. Somewhen I will be trying to change the files entirely and check if it works, also gonna translate the site one man gave to us to check if it is useful, also if you already figured out, please tell me. Thank you and I apologize for this.
  13. 60-80 Ping But Delay When Attacking

    For me, I never use TGP because it gives me ping lag always, you should try Xunlei or Xunyou if I remember right, they may make it better if you get such a nice ping with TGP, however, if you want the best results, go for IPMana. That's just my suggestion, because boosters give different results for different people, but for me - IPMana gives the best results and removes every lag that is possible.
