  1. This is sad. This place used to be amazing before BnS was released in NA. This was the go-to site for any China/Japan/Korean info. I guess things have gotten pretty slow around here lately? I haven't played BnS in a long time so I've stopped visiting as often as I used to. But whenever I do play BnS, I always come here looking for information. Really sad to see such a great site close the doors.
  2. Recommended build PvE.

    Thanks for sharing the knowledge, Rhy.
  3. Poharan = Most populated server in NA

  4. Re-thinking about choosing a server in NA

    Truth is the BR's are the most dominant players on Jiwan. Majority of the clans I see running around in the level 45 areas are all the BR clans. However, chat is not spammed with HuEhue nonsense, I haven't seen any foreign language in chat and I'm playing 18+ hours a day since headstart... tho I do have faction chat turned off because it reminds me of a twitch chat... that's right - the English speakers are more annoying than the BR's... How bout that? I am thinking about changing servers to Mushin, not because of BR's or RPer's but because of the fact that there is such a tiny amount of level 45 players - which tells me that most players on Jiwan are new to the game, the lower level areas may be packed but it's like a ghost town in the 45 areas. There are rarely any poh 6 runs up in F7. It makes me wonder how this situation is on Mushin... is it tough to find a poh 6 pug? And yes, I know the game just came out, blah blah blah. But it's been out long enough IMO. I keep telling myself to give it more time but I'm starting to doubt that now and I think it's best to roll on Mushin before I get too much invested on Jiwan.
  5. You really think anything is going to change from the beta? You really think that "beta" was an actual beta? Very naive of you. "Beta" was a cash grab for founder packs... Nothing was changed with the game besides localization. I expected someone who played TW BnS for so long to realize this.
  6. Need Translation

    I'm mainly interested in what those numbers in the 2nd box mean. [ 0 / 300 ] What do I have to do for 300 / 300?
  7. Need Translation

    http://event2.ncsoft.jp/kimagure/index Can someone explain what needs to be done for this?
  8. Pingzapper Troubles

    It's fine, you don't use PZ to launch BnS. Turn on PZ, it'll say something like "Waiting for you to start a game" in the bottom left corner. It'll pickup BnS when you run it.
  9. Harvest Village Time

    6:00 PM / 9:00 PM / 12:00 AM JST
