Aari I think im about done with this game tbh. Too much RNG on progression and constant lags during the 1 thing I might have enjoyed (Tower of Infinity). Im living like 3h away from the server and cant get a stable connection. Pathetic
Prem stones aren't worth crafting unless you have enough capital to craft a bunch (to make back your money on average) or you really trust in luck to beat the odds in the short term. When I had roughly 6000g (tied up in various mats and gold that I used to buy prem stones), i seriously considered crafting them. However, the catostrophic outcome results were too high for my liking and I didn't want to risk all those mats and gold on a chance to walk away with nothing.
Of course there is RNG in old Korean mmo's... About Lineage II enchant was terribly RNG and if you failed you broke your weapon that you had spent MONTHS to get it x'D
Well... to me the real prob in BnS was... NCWest. Pay pay pay, even with events, even to run a dungeon (!!). Even in a PvE ladder context you're pushed to pay more and more. Next what ? Pay entries for PvP ? Lel.
