  1. legal to gift NCoin items for gold?

    Also would gladly buy some NCoins at Cardinal Gates server.
  2. One Click Costume Replacement Mod Tool

    Cowboy outfit is not implemented yet?
  3. anyway to make quick money with NCoin?

    There is a gift option. A lot of people would gladly exchange their in-game gold for bags or outfits. Start new thread and set the exchange ratio. Like 100 NCoins for 2 gold or something like that.
  4. Insomnia || Windrest || HardCore || Cerulean

    Emm, can you explain me how it's going to work? I mean you need to have similar gaming time, same speed of leveling and also you need to have some sympathy for people you are playing with.
  5. Launch Cash Shop

    I will ask again, what are NCoin Bundles for? Or it's just a link to website?
  6. WTFast settings for Alpha

    So I'm planning to create new account every 14 days. Is it going to work?
  7. Launch Cash Shop

    Can somebody explain me what is the "NCoin Bundles"? Can you trade them or send as a gift? You can buy NCoins directly from the game?
  8. Insomnia || Windrest || HardCore || Cerulean

    Thanks god you choose Windrest. :joss_stick: I don't mind wait in the beginning, rather then play on empty server.
  9. [EU] What server will you join?

    Windrest is my personal choice, but i'm not sure abut my guild decision. So if there is going to be a huge queue, people would chose Ebon Hall (witch in russian sounds like "F***ing Hall")
  10. Master Pack Giveaway

    My favorite memory from Blade & Soul was when I played second Korean CBT. Game looked so amazing, that unfamiliar language and high ping doesn't bother us at all.
  11. (NA/EU) Tips for beginners that are very helpful.

    Here some tips from me 1. You can repair weapon not only near the bonfire. Party gathering pillar is also works. Stand near it, open inventory and right-click usual repair hammer. 2. If your weapon is fully broken you can equip another, even if you in combat mode. 3. You don't need to stand near party gathering pillar in order to find people. You can start recruiting thought F7 menu and continue doing your quest. 4. If you are in the dungeon, you cant accept invitation from another party. 5. Join guild.
  12. Insomnia || Windrest || HardCore || Cerulean

    Witch server we gonna choose?
  13. They can't make wardrobe feature one time payment, but for some reason they will create brand new account wide costume system that has not been implemented in every existing server. That's just unrealistic. And in the end you have to buy only one costume instead of two, NCsoft won't make stuff that make player spend less cash. :feel_good:
  14. Insomnia || Windrest || HardCore || Cerulean

    10 gold O_O, so cheap.
  15. Those complaints are doesn't getting much support. Maybe smart people already admit that there is nothing we can change. Just sit and wait till stuff get worse. It would be nice if more people would gladly share their feedback, but right now only veterans care about the future of the server.
