It's more cost effective to craft it yourself. Decent ways to make gold are by crafting food items/alchemy and selling it to players, farming dungeons for recipe drops, and playing the paragon table with the weekly RC from the LP shop
Don't let Rio and Karu hurt you pls. Because they will try. Welcome to the team
Good luck out there ash! It's was nice having you on the team and working with you
This seems like something that should definitely come early, even if it's not for another 6 months. With the current state of the game any positive changes are needed and definitely welcomed.
It was really great having you on the team, even for just a short period. I hope you're able to really focus on RL for a bit and enjoy your time away from AK.
For a guide made by someone who doesn't play the class this guide pretty decent, but I would strongly suggest a change in envoy. I'd recommend skipping the possession tile as its more for a tank build and not needed for a dps build reaper. This is the envoy I prefer, but can be adjusted depending on your preference. I only take 3 combos, because one is for the movespeed boost, but this can be left out and switched for a crit tile. I use the combos for reaper/ shuri because they do decent dmg, and one is a dark skill which will be boosted with 45% dark dmg eido.
Forgot this guide existed tbh. But I agree the envoy needs updating to something a bit more dps oriented.
Well that is not entirely true:
Aeria has a cerain control. They can set the prices in the Loyality shop, and i'm pretty sure on TW the potions are not in their shop with 500 LP.
Also they can tell TW to change drops (like they are doing it in SR from time to time), so they should be able to change worldboss drops or dropsrates in general too.
And the "new" Worldbosses is a element exklusive for Aeria (in TW they don't have them), so I don't think TW would mind if they tell them "please reduce HP of theses bosses to 30% or remove de-buff blocker" - of course Xlegends isn't motivated to do changes which require a lot of work (like bugfixing them) but minor changes they regularly.
A request has to be put in every time they want to change the SR drops, and that already took negotiating to get. Worldboss drops have been requested, as I mentioned, but XL has yet to agree to it. For the new world bosses, you're talking about Abenthy and Mechium and all those? We've asked, and it's been submitted, and once again, XL has blocked it for now. Aeria only has so much power, and sadly in these cases, it's entirely up to XL
I think the real problem is the change in management, 1,5 years ago you could give feedback and they tried to make the game better. They adressed good ideas to Xlegend (they even visited them in TW) and tried to keep the cash part of the game balanced.
But these days they clearly show they don't care about their customers at all, they just try to make as much money as possible with as less effort as possible.
Like i said in the producer live stream thead : Patch notes are getting worse everytime, no producer letter anymore - just a crappy live stream, loyality shop gets zero updates, total useless ggp since 1 year, nobody thinks about how new game element will work on the server (for example the new secret rainbow crystal can be farmed, but they forgot to implement a vailid way to farm to potions), fixing existing problems like the world bosses....
There is a lot of things Aeria could improve without much assistance needed from Xlegends, if they would really care about the game. In my opinion they will probably lunch a new game soon and want to make Aura as bad as possble to move the players to a new game.
While there are things that aeria is doing that I don't agree with, there's a lot that they can't fix without the help of XLegend. Things that you've suggested such as "nobody thinks about how new game element will work on the server (for example the new secret rainbow crystal can be farmed, but they forgot to implement a vailid way to farm to potions), fixing existing problems like the world bosses..."
World boss fixes have been suggested to XL a few times already, but XL has done nothing about it. All of the content that we get is from XL, so if it's missing things, that's really on XL. The only things that aeria can personally make changes to are prices and promotions of cash items, they can't do anything content wise without XLegend to step in and either develop it or approve it.
When you abandoned the quest were you able to re-take it?
Welcome to the team Mint! We were one month off from being on the team together way back, so I look forward to working with you!
Please provide lots of dog pics, thanks.
Welcome to the team Don't let Rio slap you too hard, but if she does try, just stand on a chair and she won't be able to reach you.
Remember when the supposed reasoning for this was because fortification scrolls would be more accessible? I'd say, my oh how the times have changed, but even back then they were made inaccessible too, so really it's always been like this even during the supposed early golden years (just, you know... the pay-walled period of time did eventually lessen and end after, what, four to six months, and didn't instead linger for what's going to soon be two and counting years only to be followed with signs they're removing other features to monetize it even more).
But is it even a surprise?
I have to say, the loss of ALL my things makes me not want to play anymore. The lack of action on the behalf of AK only adds to my nervousness..It shouldn't take over a week to reply to an issue like this.
The ticket queue may just be longer than usual at the moment, and with this kind of issue it may take longer
The think is : I played a lot of games over the years and yes there were some games where the adminds tolerated it if they saw whales using bots to make their life easier but i never heard in any game that whales are guying ingame currency. Normally as whale you have everyting ingame, your like a semi-god, there is simply no need to guy gold.
So Aura Kingdom must be so expensive, that even whales can't afford everything and must cheat (guy gold) to have it all. So it always comes back to bad business decisions.
It's not because the game is so expensive, it's because buying through 3rd parties tends to be cheaper on average. So the whales cash for the sake of getting exclusive things such as eidolons, and buy gold for their gear and other non-premium needs. I've seen this happen in quite a few games since people tend to view it as easier.
Best of luck out there Ladle. It was really great having you around on the team, even if it was just for a short time
Well we're going to see about that.
I think that this could be true because having no transfer scrolls in the game would be very stupid
I think your "source" is trolling you. This is probably the item that, whoever it is, is referring to Japanese version of the enhanced transfer volume
I highly doubt we'll be seeing this item. And generally when an item is "banned" it tends not to show up.
As I heard from trustful sources they're going to add another Ability Transfer Scroll 21-30. This item can will be like These Superior one except of one thing: Your stuff can lose up to 10 fortification. If this is going to happen, it'll be so annoying to fortify your weapon again.
What's your trustworthy source because I've never heard of that
Cailen reminded me of how pretty Frigga is
If we just look ahead to the future at gears:
At minimum, people need the 95 crit + crit dmg cap set, for normal people that's not so much of an issue because most people kept their accessories +20 cause the scroll 3 bug doesn't work. For +30s however, this either means that they have to 1. Give Aeria more money to re +30 a full set of accessories, or suffer the stat loss of non-+30 accessories for the cdmg cap proc.
If we go into more details, looking at armor; we know that at this rate a lot of people have a set of holy spirit, either full or w/e but most people +21'd it. This means that for awakening, when you need moonlight bottom, a casual player with +21 is going to have to re +20 a full bottom set or waste all the gold on transfer scrolls. Same idea for +30 people, they either have to fully refort a whole set to +30 or just suffer without +30 or waste the 45k-60k on transfer scrolls and then re-+30 from there.
In the extreme future, people won't be able to use new ele trophies because no one will want to drop that much money to +30 a full set, most people will still barely be able to afford 1 at this rate.
It's just a really shitty change because it doesn't just screw over f2p people, but it also makes whales suffer. This change helped literally no one, even if they fully revamp the LP mall to try and help the f2p's it's pointless unless they make unlimited scrolls for 1 lp a piece, because at that rate that's what it's gonna take to save people.
We'll just be getting more fort insanity promos to justify it in order to show that it's not that bad without transfers, or they'll tank the superior prices with more paras like during poc. Whichever comes first. Either way, 100% agree that it helps no one
I don't play anymore because (apart of real life) with the time I could spend in game, I wasn't able to afford anything past +20 without spending real money I don't have.
You know how much I love this game and fought for it and defended Aeria's ideas but I can't find the will to do so anymore.
Bardock, really? +30 came out 2 years ago. You had time to create something new to get profit, instead you put a wall between +20 and +30 with that stupid fort insanity offer that keeps saving your butt again and again. Ability Transfer Scrolls don't damage in game's economy, it damages yours. You remove them so people have to pay for fort scrolls again when they get their new equipment.
Long good bye to free players, not even the LP shop revamp that should have come like half a year ago will save them.
You should learn how to focus on normal players instead of whales, and make those normal players want to spend on your game instead of building bigger walls.
It's perfect timing with awakening not too far away
Hello! How do I maximize my crit damage? I noticed that my crit damage is still at 167% which is pretty low for a lancer, but I dunno what to put in my gears to maximize it?
I have also noticed people using SS 2%dmg/7%dmg against element, but still manages to maximize their crit damage to 200+. I'm so confused. Hope someone could shed light on this matter.
What weapons/armor are you using? All of my cdmg comes from my gear + the 2 tiles on my envoy so it's possible to cap it just with that. Also, you can gain 30 stacks of cdmg from your passive every time you get hit while in combat. Don't rely on this to cap since reaching 30 stacks takes a bit of time, but it can help if you're really stuck
Accidentally using the right path, smh
14% dark emblem, 45% dark dmg eido, 4%dd 2%spd 2%HP pet
Memes are memes
huhuhu i will be sure to use my best penmanship to write $100 on a piece of paper Please accept my genuine $100 totally-not-fake- bill.
Wow, I can't believe you're funding my full +30 dreams
And how long will it take to get those? Those are not free by all means. You have to pay your real time for it, a lot. And as someone who spent a lot of time for them, I wouldn't recommend it as a good source to invest your time in for those stats, at least not with the current patch. It's fun to do at first but soon will become boring before you reach to lv6-7 for each of them.
That's the same for every aspect of AK though, so I don't see the argument. I'd say 4 or 5% mspd is 100% worth it. And all of the other bonus stats will add up in the end
Don't mean to necro this thread, but I've got some info is OP is interested. It seems that all skills have a set amount of durability that they consume (whether it's over time or x durability per # of casts). Doesn't seem like this value is public, but in the class/skill revamp patch, for sorcerer one of the changes is for flame impact in which the durability consumption on the skill is being decreased. Just a fun bit of info, so I guess all skills reduce at a different amount/rate depending on their consumption value

The thing is there is little to no real reward for maxing them all, unless you're going for the very top of the Achievement leaderboard.
In all of them, I find the Gathering is the easiest, fastest and most efficient to max out with useful perks that add a bit extra XP to other Jobs as well as the valuable 3% mspd in the final level. And some of the things you gather can be sold for gold if you don't need them. Thus if you're going to do it, try max out the Gathering first before being serious with the others.
A side note for Card duel because you can get some LP every 2 weeks which is nice and maybe worth investing: Check out the guide for card duel, I'm not sure if it's here in the new forum but it should be. In general: Build a full lv99 deck by dueling easy NPCs and maybe duel their easy-medium level for lower dueling time so you can do other things.
Free stats is little to no reward? I'd beg to differ on that. 2k dmg and hp here and there will always add up in the end.
The main way is to farm the highest level thing for each profession afaik. So cooking, cook higher level foods, housing craft the high level furniture, so on and so forth
