  1. I am writing this post in hopes to begin a discussion regarding why so many people are rerolling from mage to mele classes in classic NA. Lately there have been immense amounts of mages rerolling to mele because they feel it is the only way to play sustainably on classic at the moment. This is entirely true from my view. I run in a mage CP and we hunt lair of Antharas. Just our hunting cost per week in shots, ore and other misc supplies for buffs/skills is over 300kk adena and Loa only provides around 20% of that expense. This ratio seems to be consistent with other mages i talk with in gam

So with that, we will have an unscheduled maintenance to change the server hardware. All Live servers will be unavailable at 1:00 p.m. PDT (10:00 p.m GMT+1). Game servers will be unavailable for approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes. Thank you for bearing with us!

  6. Hello Everyone, With our AWS migration and server upgrade last week, we have several key latency issues that we have been actively working on resolving. These latency issues are: Melee Attack Delays Hourly Latency Action Delays Server Capacity Latency Melee Attack Delays This issue has seen some improvement, but many are still experiencing this latency especially when the servers are near or at capacity. Hourly Latency Action Delays We have traced the action delays experienced every hour to an hourly server back. This backend process is vit

  7. April 8th. Ranking system not working. Server runs buttery smooth, no melee lag. April 9th. Ranking system is BACK. Hime using server to run Excel '97 so we can be ranked up constantly. Melee lag is back. Coincidence? I think not. We, the players, have been telling you the ranking system is the source of the melee lag, while you "amazing" GMs and ur "outstanding" development team can't solve the bloody thing for OVER A YEAR! Just rank us up one a day, on reset, which is same time when the ranking bonuses are applied anyway! JUST FIX THE DAMN THING ALREADY YOU BUFFOONS !!

  9. You are telling us that you will give us compensation after all this problems with servers are solved but if Im correct these server problems (smaller or bigger) are here for months or years. But we have now XP event, some people bought Prestige and Destiny packs just for this XP event so how you will compensate this? These packs expire soon. If you give us some compensation after month (yeah VERY optimistic version of fixing all this mess) or so and you give us some consumables or whatever than there is nothing good for us if we lose XP event, Prestige, Destiny and other time restricted items

  11. Possible solution to GTC "problem" 1)Remove the rediculus amount of exp GTC give (maybe dlvl the ones that abused them??) 2)Remove the insane amount of power you need to have to farm them (nerf their P.Def M.Def) significantly,lets say like an elite NPC to the current map. (everyone should have a fighting change) 3)Only players +/- 3 Lv. at the current area of spawn (map) can get drops by GTC (so no 114+ can farm at 111 area GTC , for example) Keep the item injection to the game and bring more ingame farmable items.There should be an option to obtain anything ,game-wise,

  14. @Hime Would you be able to indicate your troubleshooting steps and testing by chance? What are your theories as to the issues that are causing the performance decline? Will you be testing any of the suggestions the community has indicated such as the disabling of the Greedy Chests and the watchful players thereof and disabling the Ranking System as a test? Any transparency here of some work or troubleshooting steps may help ease the community's mind that NCsoft has been listening and could help restore some faith in some of the player base.

  16. I see a lot of people complain about box camera toons, I agree it's a plague on Chronos, here is an idea, create a toon make it 105+ use exalted gear and become a pro pker, kill all cameras in an area log out, come back a few hours later do the same thing again over and over. Worst that can happen, u get a little slower lose some pdef on a toon you don't really care about, you drop crap cus exalted gear can't drop, event shots can't drop. No one but camera owners will hunt u down cus you're cleaning the area. Most of those cameras don't have gear and buffs so they are easy to kill. If owner do

  19. @Juji, My perspective from talking island... So not sure if you have been following the Baium tower event but you should watch it. Things that don't make sense, Why can't go up as a group with your cp/or group. 500k for every time you port there-- (you leave to get songs/dances/buffs/kitty ..whatever) open pvp zone, You get picked off as you port to the last floor if you made it that high- doesn't matter if Baium has been killed already. Suggestions- as its a server wide event- no pvp allowed (not a very popular option by the winning side or some true l2

Where is "good job" "you guys rock" "ncsoft is the best" Little rats with a piece of cheese cheering and give wrong feedback. They dont see the big picture Enchant rates are rediculus why? because some players (3 or 4) have luc 140+ the enchant rate whent down for all To put lvl 9 attribute to a weapon you need 3 bil adenas.

  22. Above statements are correct, we need some farming balance between physical and magic damage dealers. Although people farm with AoE mages in TOI too, you just need very good gear.

  24. I MADE SURE I took a video of the attack speed when the new servers on AWS were stood up. @Jujihas been asking if people are "experiencing top of the hour lag" The answer is a definitive.. its EVERY MINITE OF THE HOUR LAG. I have included a video that compares the two VERY different speeds. Attack speed is the same, its maxed out, this is 100% constant server lag. Hopefully this will help @Juji 's questions on if we are experiencing lag. It reality.. its actually worse than it was before AWS... and I didn't think that was possible. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AjEluS_1lW8

  26. There are standard sieges to castles. Apparently by those who participate, there are no rules of siege to castles. Before only the clans that belonged to the castles could defend them, added the clans accepted as defenders. The clans with castles could not participate in other sieges to other castles, those rules no longer apply. These new or current rules are like this to allow 1 or 2 clans to take castles with other backpack clans? I would appreciate lighting.

  31. At this point it seems that one is used to the operation, it is as if all this were normal. I don't know how they realize that there are problems, I don't even notice them anymore. Not because they don't exist, but because they are already part of the game.

  32. There are so few who participate in the sieges, always the same clans going from one castle to another. Everyone knows that they are 2 or 3 real clans with their clans backpacks. Setting guidelines would make other clans participate, clans without much equipment, which would make the fights longer and more fun. But apparently the server policy is what we have today, I hope that at some point it is evaluated. The fortresses are mostly blocked, there are only a couple left, the sieges are the same 4 that do not add more fun than the nonsense they speak.

  38. I'm not concerned about how fast others gain their levels. I play games for my personal enjoyment: this includes strategy & gaming skill. Using macros while AFK is lazy & unskillful. You're dealing with an old-schooler here. We used to play for 6 to 12 hours straight (with our fingers) during the weekend. 6 hours during epic dragon raids & 12 hours because of the old birthday buff. So for a person like yourself to say to me that "after 2-3h will be tired" is laughable to someone like myself. To conduct your own behavior by following "99.99%" of others because they decide

  40. Hi, im othell GH and did some tests, my advice: For hunt/xp/instances - Juji ofc, for raid boss or hard instances - Tanga (back to Juji in last hit), and u know the rest: For enchant - Popo, for Siege/Oly/PVP - Kaw. And btw, avoid use Critical Wound in normal hunt and be carefull with shadow reverse cuz it is bugged (if ur in mob back it cause u go front). Hope this helps, sorry my english and be safe!

  41. No its not the minority, the minority are the people that actually farm them with exploits and skirting the rules. I have been lucky enough to see 6 of them spawn, killed 2, 1 got a greater rune, 1 got a shilien crystal box. Other 4 I was pked by someone who ported out of no where (and it was way out of way no near a port each time). People who farmed the stuff were not helping the server they were hoarding everything they collected. Jewels are still expensive for 90% of the server to afford.

  45. Maybe items like this should be placed in the drop list from mobs after first introduction hits 2 year mark. Jewels (ruby sapphire those jewels) been in the game for 4 or 5 years now and still rare for anyone to have anything more than a greater 1 or 2 if they have that. Nevermind impossible to upgrade broochs because all the fragments you need. Artifacts are same way just way to expensive to upgrade for little bonus. Most artifacts give zero bonus from 1 > 2. Why? you have to have to go 1 > 3 to get any increase in the intimal artifact bonus same on many forgotten skills, on
