  1. *hugs anyway* It's April Fools Day, smileeeeeeee (:

  2. xO I'm just having an episode

  3. x__x Kuri~ Does someone need a hug? D:

  4. A certain Scientific Railgun.

    Season 2 starts April. It's awesome!

    It's the Side Story to A Certain Magical Index. But I like railgun better. It's awesome.

  5. Shin! What anime is that in your siggy~?

  6. Any other ideas for new classes?

    <3 Had to respond to this being a Force Master myself~ I don't think their change needs to be major I just think it needs to be taken into account that BnS is about your ability to control the situation, to keep it in your favor~ It is a rareness among online mmo's that takes defensive into consideration just as much as offense which SHOULD be done when thinking about fighting~ The FM lacks alot of control, at least they do from 1-30~ Chi-choke is getting hammered it seems almost every other day(exaggeration of course xD) but it seems that way. Frostbite loses a bit of it's luster because being able to hit during it sometimes allows said person to attack cancel frostbite. Watching alot of the old trailers, there are alot of moves the FM has missing, whereas you don't see that hardly at all with the other classes (aka BM, KFM, Sin, Destro etc, you got what you saw for the most part) FMs kinda are 50/50~ and I've come into thinking, maybe, just maybe, this is because some of those skills will show up if ever the class was opened up to Jin's again (hybrid like Lyn Blade Master) because thinking back, all those moves, heck FM showcasing in general was always done by Jin's. The 2009 one even being showcased by Jin's, Gon's and Kun's, and the 2010 being entirely done by Jin >w>, so don't shoot me for this thought process!! >:I I've been wanting my Jin FM back~! So to put short, it would be nice if they could defend/control things similar to the others~ To get back on topic x3 because the FM is not a new class, I would L-O-V-E a spear/staff type class~! I'm just a junkie for that weapon type and I think it's because I love seeing it twirled or spun around, a grace with power thing~ And seeing as their are already basic functions for a spear user (mob type anyway) in the game, maybe this is something that can happen~ More so, I'd stay focused on those class type mobs that appear in the game that seem to have some of the basic functions of mobs that we can play, are more likely to appear as playable. Example: Spear, Sword & Shield, Bow & Arrow, Gunner, etc (they're class type mobs with the basic charge type attack and leap skills and what not)
  7. This might be the cause of Ncsoft sign of showing offline

    This might have set them back in terms of how long the game will take to get translated, but I don't think even this has anything to do with being downright silent. Conor left in November 2012 for Riot~, we got the 'Meet The Team' news on the official NA site in October 2012, meaning Conor left the VERY next month for Riot~ Since then we've only had two updates, one of which is so humorously titled 'State of the game' which goes on to tell us what they HAVE to do to translate a game and not exactly WHERE they are and WHAT they're doing~ Even though Conor was lead content for the BnS project since August 2011, I think NCsoft has got someone else in the spot by now And not to sound the least bit rude, if Conor's defection was such a blow it sent you into silence against your community, just MAYBE you should have updated us with that info as well, instead of leaving us in the dark about someone you introduced us to in October as the lead content writer, maybe you could have told us about that, I feel like we could have been sympathetic to that, we were introduced to him afterall~ On top of that, maybe a good bye letter in Conor's tribute and hard work on the game for over a year and a new 'Meet The Team', could have even sufficed~ :gloomy:
  8. Yes, Ciel is fine :3 I also have people calling me Brains, nab, née-san and dumb dumb. Take your pick xD

  9. xO Is there anything that people call you Ceciel~?

  10. Kuri is cute, so Kuri it shall be :3

  11. That works fine =O some people call me Kuri =3 up to you~

  12. o3o Dem cheats. Nuu, must resist~

    Question~ What should I refer to you as? Would simply Kurori be alright?

  13. Valentine's Day Doboks!

    xD that's what I was thinking~ They could have given them some nice Blade and Soul styled tuxes~
  14. >w> I'll just go and do the missing-no cheat and duplicate my master balls~

  15. Quests and items help

    It's exactly that, a 'bit' outdated, you can still do almost ALL Qing-Gong stuff following this guide and it should give you a general overview of how it works to finish the others by the time this guide stops helping~ Facts, follow the guide, he/she wouldn't have had to make this post, or at least, wouldn't have to have the qing-gong question included~
