On a more serious note though, this is VERY unwelcoming and bad for newcomers.

You come in, choose a nation and find yourself getting in all sorts of trouble, thrown in jail or pk'd without knowing what's going on. If I had started like that I would just quit.

I'd agree with you, except it only affects players who choose Sufokia.

That'll learn 'em.

Not just resist and HP. Sustain can be accomplished by shields, Block stat, kiting, heals, blocking LoS with mechanics, summons taking hits instead, stealing AP/MP/WP/Range to limit the opponent's damage output.

I think there's enough diversity in these damage-mitigation possibilities for all 16 classes to get a little sumthin. Iops and Cras suffered from a lack of sustain options until this revamp; now they got the mechanics, heals, shield, kiting, and debuffing opponents, while still doing good damage. Every class deserves some of these abilities, and I'm so pleased with the revamps.

I agree with Tzooon (or Minus I guess?)

Sustain is now the name of the game.

This is my balls to the wall greedy guess. Xelors and foggernauts... maybe Enus if not them. I'm extremely doubtful about xelors being next.
We already know fogger, osa and eca aren't next
It's called dreaming who knows maybe it's all a misdirection.

Hopefully not. I like my Xelor and Fogger well enough. My Enu and Rogue on the other hand need some help before I retire them.

>1-time use


>Binds equipment

No need to reinvent the wheel, Ankama; this is not an original idea you've conceived, so just copy what other games did right.

Delaz doesn't have a problem with math, you have a problem with reading.

Thanks for the guide, Mango.

Thread title should probably be "Don't buy subscriptions unless you play on Aerafal".

I've long thought something was weird with the Dpig drop rates. I defeated him almost two dozen times before anything dropped. (At that time, I dropped both the Beads and the Kimono on the same character, who was not on Booster)

Up until that point, it was almost a joke between me and my friends that I was incapable of getting any of his drops. I never even get haven gems from him.

Of course by now the drops are too low level to be of use to me... I really would have liked these things, thirty or forty levels ago.

I regret not running BC on Sunday, before he was removed. It was a nasty surprise to "complete" the Kelba quest and realize I still can't access him.

so i just checked the beta server and a team of 6 iops can all use focus on their own sword then all use sip on a boss to nuke it down instantly wich might be a problem

That sounds incredibly homoerotic.

You were actively duping on nox with hooks and constantly stir up shit outside of the forums

You're far from innocent

What people arent grasping is me and asriah arent saying we think rental costumes are okay or should exist we were trying to explain ankamas logic which apparently got you all to direct your hate for ankama at us

Like hop off and chill for a minute

Total insanity.

I like the idea, but I'm with LoreChief. It would be really nice, but it's not something we're entitled to.

Heck, what if you went from hybrid to tribrid or something? Rerolling your hybrid gear would be pointless.

If people are buying these costumes on WAPAC, then Ankama is going to release more of them over there.
Burden of proof fallacy.

They could be releasing costumes with more attractive stats to be more appealing so people buy them.

Lol are you serious? The burden of proof is on the accuser. I'M not the one making assumptions like 'no one is buying these costumes'.

This is like a "half full or half empty" scenario.

You made the assertion that people are buying the costumes.

Considering the rental statted-costumes look identical to the non-stat versions, it's hard to say how many people are wearing them.

I hopped onto my Asia account a couple times yesterday and today and ran around. Saw a few dozen people at Alma and various people on the nations/islands. Barely anyone in the Infuntry and Vigilante costumes. Anecdotal evidence, I know, but what else do we have access to?

Reason for edit : I'd totally rent that costume that gives 100% gathering harvests hue hue hue

I like when players want from game to give them everything they want, in exchange for whines and flames about - all the time.

Also players who have terrible organization problems. Like they cant find other people to test things out.

There is beta for some players who already "support" game by buying boosters. And you have there unlimited supply of most common items. So gather friends - assume that few of them have beta acces - and go on with tests.

It really is just a case of growing pains. Whether you're a single-boxer against the Heroes system because it discourages socializing, or a multi-boxer against it because it devalues your hard work, we all need to bite the bullet and get ready, because it's coming.

Single-boxers, expecting a stranger to drop their Heroes for you in a party is acting self-entitled, and if a friend refuses to drop a Hero for you, then they're not much of a friend.

Multi-boxers, you've had literally months of forewarning to prepare for the change. Take advantage of your numerous assets and game experience, and start gearing up some alts on your favorite account(s).

I dare say that ultimately, the changes brought by the Heroes feature can be decided by the players!
