  1. Vindictus copying BnS?

    well... I like it... I mean. There's a personality for each character and they all are different. Kai is lonely and misterious, Fiona is serious and dedicated, Lann is outgoing and kind, Karok is giant slow but has a great heart, Evie is more like shy, kindly and misterious, and Vella is outgoing and flirty... I don't really find any problem, I mean, it's simple. Don't like it? Don't use it. But most of the people have been complaining about every single new character since Evie was released, and the sadest thing is that those people are the first in using them .__.
  2. Vindictus copying BnS?

    Other clothes wouldn't fit with her personality.
  3. Vindictus copying BnS?

    And actually she is. Because most of the armors from Evie and Fiona are pretty... Covered, I mean, they don't show too much. But all the armors I have seen of Vella are way more exposed. xD
  4. Vindictus copying BnS?

    You can change the colour of the armor freely either... And doing that they don't even look similar... P.D: Vella is awesome...
  5. Blade & Soul Nude Patch

    I think it's just the base of the characters, and somebody found out how to show them in-game.
  6. Vindictus copying BnS?

    Not really, if you really pay attention to details you should see that those armors aren't that similar... It may be inspirated in other armors, it may be a coincindence. I don't see it as copying in any way... It's stupid and immature to say "it's a copy". It's just like saying that J.K. Rowling copied to J.R.R. Tolkien to make harry potter. Edit: Didn't want to sound agressive, but to give my point of view.
  7. Happy Birthday kay o3o

  8. Shawnzy's Ripped Database

    Nice find. hmmm... Now it's confirmed that 2 classes of the 3 not-anounced are summoner and gunslinger... But there's nothing about the 4th not-announced class...
  9. Gunslinger Class

    If you found that kind of weapons that means that you can find the weapons of the other 3 not-released classes?
  10. Gunslinger Class

    The second one looks like a luger :P
  11. Found somthing

    I would like to see a gunslinger class it would be interesting and original, there's a martial art that is called Hojutsu-ryu and it's with guns of any kind, pistols, shotguns, sub-machine guns, assault rifles, even sniper rifles. Maybe something like a gunslinger class don't fit with the era, but as somebody said before; it's a fictional game. The gun in the pictures look like a Beretta M9 with a modification in the end of the barrel.
  12. What Are You Listening To?

    Redefine by SOiL
  13. Age ? weather , season etc

    I don't want to my character to get old... But something that would be interesting would be a system of age when you create your character, it would make more easy and fast to create your character. I mean, for example: If you want to create a kid between 8 and 12 years old you click an option and it would change the height, face, hair, eyes, expression of your character. I don't know if I explain myself in a good way but anyways I hope you understand. I have haste, so I didn't read other posts in this thread so I don't know if somebody had said this before :P It would be nostalgic xD
  14. I lost the game

    what did we lost? o.o
  15. What weapons do you want to see?

    scythes are big, but they look better in normal height characters, like evie from vindictus ^.^ Cute and deadly :3
