WTF 3 hour boss fights?! Are they taking pages of bad design from FFXI? Wow, really glad I didn't waste my time then for a shitty 20 slot bag. My characters have full 15 slot bags and never run out of room regardless. Hope whatever holiday event they have next isn't such a limited run or retarded in conception.


I played from the start of the event to the end. On the first over flow I was only like 30 mins in and the rezzing wasn't going well in my group so I hit the WayPoint and my game froze on a load screen got back in on an over flow that was further along in the event then when I d/ced and it still took me another 2.5 hours. In my over flow there was just a lot of people standing back not doing anything, then halfway in the event chain from Phase 2 randomly started and we couldn't progress because the bridge was broken so we had to go back and redo phase 2 to get to the otherside of the island to do phase 3. it was bugged as hell. I am a new player so the 20 slot from this was welcome but a hell of a time getting it.

Don't get me wrong; I had a lot of fun. :) I'm just butthurt about not getting the rewards. Especially after that level of time commitment.

Whatever that means, though. :) How will I find out? How will I prove I deserve it? How will they know?

Probably just a small reward but you won't get a chance to get a pre-req like you did at the end of the last event...which I am disappointed I missed.

They should just use the same algorithm they used for the chest after the event. How can they be sure people who claim to have been there actually were tho? Maybe they're researching this right now. Or maybe they'll just give everyone 20 slot bags heh.

I imagine it would be more of a server(s) wide type of thing, since I doubt they would put much effort into figuring out who exactly got DC'd during the event, which is likely not even possible anyway. Wintersday is coming soon as well, so they will be putting focus on that.

They'll have to give something to absolutely everyone then. :) I wonder what they'll do.

Wintersday! I have to say, I do enjoy these events and things. I knwo they are buggy and things go wrong, and it stinks to spend 3 hours and get no reward, but I still think it's all pretty cool and fun. You get a hell of a lot of content for your $60 game purchase (or whatever one pays--there were better deals out there). All this extra stuff without actually having to buy an expansion (though I'll definitely be buying the expansions).

anyone here expand their bank slots or bag slots? Thinking about buying a gem card to do so. Also I may be missing something but it seems like my appearance never changes when I find new gear, is the only way to look different is to buy the outfits via gem store?

Well you bag slots can be expanded easily with bigger bags, but bank slots and character slots need to be bought with gems I think.

Also, there really aren't that many different kinds of armor looks. Dungeon armors vary from each other decently but as far as armor you find out in the world, you have limited options. Medium armor especially is lacking with basically just "Pirate" and "Swindler" stuff.

I did some research and saw I can afford and obtain a full Tier 1 set of culture armor. If I use those little stones to reskin my items to look like my culture armor do I still keep my culture armor so I can reskin newer gear to look the same?

I paid to double my bank capacity. :/ It's nice to have more space. I'm a hoarder.

I agree, there aren't enough medium armor looks. But yeah, if you find something you like, you can just keep using the transmutation stones every time. It takes one stone and "deletes" both the armors to create a new armor. You choose which of the two to keep stats, upgrades and look from (can chose from either for all three).

Even if you have a good graphics card, this game is pretty processor-intensive. I think my graphics card is okay for it, decent at least, but my processor (and maybe even hard drive!) are a bottleneck. Weird. Games that seem to only use the graphics card and not the processor so much still run pretty well on my system, after three years. Even they have rather long load times, though. I guess I must have a 5400 RPM HDD in here. My next computer is going to be a SSD.

Sorry for the rambly reply with no indications of whom I'm replying to. In a hurry at work :)

I bought gems with in game gold in that first week, and went crazy on the bank storage. Gem prices have gone up a ton since then, kinda sad I didn't buy more!

Transmutation stones? Yep. You can throw the skin of that set of armor onto the stats of better armor forever. Once you hit level 80 you'll need special Transmutation stones, but you get plenty over time so you shouldn't have a problem.

Yeah, I don't know about back when since I've only been playing the game a few weeks, but gems are really expensive now in gold. I just used Paypal :P

I wonder what it actually costs in real-world money to buy gold in the game (via gems)? I don't see a whole lot of use for gold yet, or at least there isn't that I NEED MONEY panic that I felt in WoW. I would definitely buy some gems if I had a huge surplus of gold, because there are a few outfits I'd like to buy (well, just the pirate outfit).

This game does have a severe lack of variety in armor, and it's lame that you can't craft or buy new town clothing. You can't even buy much with real money! You'd think they'd want as much as possible on the store for people to spend real money on and finance the game.

I'd like to ask a question for any beta/launch vets out there in regards to the upcoming discounts:

Have either account upgrades (character slots, bank space, etc.) or gems themselves ever been discounted? (and I mean just officially through their store not farming and converting currency etc.)

Neither. So far the discounts (and cash shop offerings as a whole) have been fairly lackluster.

There are supposed to be "deals" in the store Friday-Sunday. I hope they're Steam-style super deals. I don't know what they'd be on, but I'd be interested in like a cheap pirate outfit and some keys and things for the Lion chests.

I never saw a reason to. Just fill up on 15 slot bags and you'll be fine; sell everything else on the AH soon as you get it. The look of gear is pretty awful until about 25 when the art finally picks up. I wouldn't spend any RL cash on their shop TBH; just save up gold and buy the gems that way. Gold has absolutely no use ingame except buying on the AH and travel. Unless you're leveling a tradeskill, chances are there's nothing on the AH you need either. I ended up buying some racial armor for 25g because I had nothing better to spend it on.

In terms of medium armor I find the Duelist set to be the most interesting of the non-cultural ones.

Seems like EVERY other set is trench coats..

I don't seem to be able to find "Riveted" armor set. I believe it is a Karma-bought set. I haven't seen "Commando" armor either. Both of them intrigue me a lot but I can't find them.
