      You will not "name & shame" any cheaters, exploiters, hackers or any other rather unpleasant players. Please use the in-game Report and Block features instead.
      You will not post extremely explicit text or images such as pornography or gore. All content should be safe-for-work. Borderline posts should be hidden with spoiler tags to maintain a SFW (safe-for-work) environment.
      Please do not post links or images from Imgur. Imgur blocked the Dojo from hotlinking their images with no warning or negotiation offers so any posted Imgur images or avatars will be broken or appear "white".
      You will not post off-topic discussion or derail threads. Memes, macros and other unrelated content should be hidden with spoiler tags.
      You will not create posts with the intention of flame-baiting, “circlejerking” or anything else that could be considered low-quality.
      You will not post images containing additional data such as embedded sounds or documents.
      You will not ask for free in-game items, NC Coins or gold (“begging”).

      False reports will result in a warning or ban. Please read the rules carefully before sending in reports.
      Backseat (“pocket”) moderation will be hidden to keep the forum clean. If you find a post or thread that you believe needs to be moderated, use the report function.
      You will not edit your post if it has been edited by a moderator for rule-breaking.
      You will obey moderator warnings. If you are privately messaged by a moderator for rule-breaking and you wish to contest it, you may do so in the private message but remember that moderator decisions are final.
      Complaints about Dojo rules, Dojo staff members or the Dojo itself on the forum will be hidden and further action may be taken against your account. If there are changes you wish to see, use the Site Feedback & Support board.
      Topics and posts may be edited or altered by Dojo staff members due to bad formatting. This can include things such as posts typed in capslock or posts that have content that needs to be hidden with spoiler tags. Moderators may delete or hide posts without warning if the post was not worth writing a warning for. If your post is hidden or deleted and you were not notified, it was done so because it broke a simple forum rule and required removal. <a name="2">Questions & Technical Support</a> Misinformation will be hidden. Constant spreading of misinformation or lazy replies will result in a warning or ban (i.e. “search it yourself”).

Thanks for the news update, Revast (although I read Steparu's article first). Hehe. So these 7 waves will happen over the course of the rest of THIS year and completing by December. Is that right? Cool. I wonder when this game is releasing over here in the West. Looking forward to playing!

Oh god WHY? Why the hell they gave that new class, which is almost similiar to my lovely blade master but from your prewiev looks stronger and more cool than original blade master, to that small-ugly-no boobs-no ass-freaky ears and horrible tail- race? why why why? i just looking foward for some kind of blade master with dual swords, but if they add that abiliti to Lyn "blade master" then ill prolly rage quit. Why the hell they made a "new" class that is almost same like blade master, probably with almost same skills but also with new strongest and coolest skills? Why they just dont make blade master able for Lyn race? that should be much better... i just hope that "force blader" will not be so cool and good, or if yes then ill be so disappointed :cry: Or they should make that new class able for one more race i think. That should be good, because now have lyn two own classes ( summoner and the new one ). Edited by polednik

Lyn Blade Master? I'm with other's who are disappointed with this. Why do Lyns need to have Blade Masters remade just for them why can't they just have the original BM? (Maybe Lyns are more popular in KR?)

[/quote]

Totally agree with this. They should have original BM. And yes, I am sure that Lyn are so much popular in east. Ppl from asia always like things like this.

On the other hand i am not disappointed that new class isn't a gunner. I just dont like class that shoot from gun in MMORPG, bow or crossbow is ok, but not a gun.

My only disappointment regarding the Lyn BM is that TBM promised something [I]new and unique[/I]. Lyn BM is just a mix of BM and Fencers from DOMO :/'' It's nice, yeah, but not really revolutionary as promised.

TBL** frickin' typo

Tsk, another Lyn only class. Wasn't summoner enough?! DX

Oh well, aside from that, those are very big and awesome updates, and the PvP fans couldn't be more happy!

I am also honestly disappointed about the Lyn BM, mostly because I had my heart set on Jin BM, and while I find the changes on the class interesting... I will probably just roll a Lyn for them and a large part of me doesn't like to be that divided. I already overcame the race/class restrictions for this game, lol.

But the PVP news is a good counter to that disappointment, I'm stoked to see some actual PVP content being added. Definitely looks promising.

[quote]7th Wave - New Class, the Lyn Blade Master
The seventh and final update will contain the anticipated 7th class, the Lyn Blade Master. Don't get this class confused with the already established Blade Master. The Lyn Blade Master will have a completely new set of skills, along with some old favorites from the original class. A variety of AoE's, stuns and an all new force grab - not to be confused with the Force Master's grab - will be at your disposal as a Lyn Blade Master. You'll even be able to grab bosses, something Force Masters haven't even mastered yet!

This class will be fairly easy to master compared to the original Blade Master and other classes in Blade & Soul according to the development team. It will also wield a new type of sword, so no need to worry about these little guys stealing your weapons, Blade Masters.

Be sure to check out the video posted above for a glimpse at the new class in action. [/quote]

Everything but this. This......I don't know what to think about this.

If you going to make the same "class" but eveything different because it's a Lyn and not a Jin...I mean.....It doesn't sound right. And the fact it sounds like a hybrid FM as well with there uber powerful "force grab" that us FM can't do to bosses but they can and AoE's and stuns make it sound like it going to dominate anything it walks into.

It also makes anyone who didn't want to be a summoner prolly want to go Lyn also because it sounds like they are the jack of all trades and if you got skill master of it all

I hope this dosen't blow back in there face. Edited by Garzel

This hardly seems like a new class. Kinda disappointing, even if I'm glad Lyns can be BMs again.

But this is not BM... this is something else, like mix from BM and FM probably... I am scared that original BM will be maybe useless and pointless if they make this new char in wrong way :(

[font="Comic Sans MS"][color="#00BFFF"]I think people are kind of overlooking that there might be 9 classes now instead of 8. Lyn Force Blader is not something "new", it's a class reworked for Lyn. Much like a revamp from the 2009 Blade and Soul trailer. Summoners are getting revamped too, I have my speculations of what they might do~ Anyway I am happy for the Lyn Blade Master!!!! Now to await the final two classes. (Team Bloodlust isn't dumb.) What they basically did right there, was rework with what they already had, before moving on and finishing something new. Now they don't have to really go back and mess with old stuff as much.


Alas, my favorite waves are the PVP ones and my number 4!!!![/color][/font]
