  1. Still some way !

    I think his main point is that if he can't survive long enough to farm there because of PK, what good is it having bonus anything? What he misses, though, is true "cause and effect." Cause: They lowered adena drop amount of IOS. This makes it almost pointless for most high levels to hunt there. Effect: High levels now go to PI because it is boosted and there is opportunity to make more here because of boosted drops via farming. Irony: Some lower level, under-geared players complained about high adena drop amount at IOS, seeking to hurt those higher levels' pockets. Now those higher levels are returning the favor by hogging all of PI and killing off lessers. If IOS still had great drop amount, they wouldn't do that. They wouldn't need to. Lesson to all -- be careful what you cry about, because the tissue NCSoft gives you just might cut off your nose, not just wipe away tears. If no complaints, everyone gets paid. Instead we get this. Enjoy bed they made.
  2. New P2W item.

    Count me for a few boxes. I probably won't get more than honey beer drops with my luck.
  3. PVP Changes

    PVP is the hallmark of this game. But it is also the worst thing about this game. In the real world even a 5 year old with a rock and decent aim can hurt the President of the United States, the most powerful man in the world. But in L2 you have to be pretty close to top dogs in equipment and levels to tickle them, let alone be considered an actual threat. If you want PVP to improve, and if you want more and more people to want to PVP, you have to change the mechanics.
  4. Crystals of Soul

    If I'm not mistaken any of the town blacksmiths. The option is under the Augmentation menu.
  5. Back after a short break

    1. Easy until you get to higher Exalted quest where you have to kill 80,000 mobs. It's not hard, just boring as hell. You log in, search forever for a good hunting spot, set macro, go AFK, try not to get upset when you come back to find toons dead, killed by either Demon Swords or PKers, rez party, restart macros -- rinse and repeat until next day. 2. You'll do instance (Abandon Mine, Storm Isle, etc.) and daily, which I'm sure you already know. Hellbound regions like Phantasmal, Beleth Circle, etc., unless you have top gear. Then you can go to Ivory Tower Crater, possibly even Alligator Island. 3. There's only one way to make billions of adena fast and that's to sell promotion items to other players during "events." The only proven place where you could hunt for billions of adena once you reach level 107 was recently "corrected" to much lower drop amounts.
  6. Crystals of Soul

    If you're talking about what I think you're talking about, Soul Crystals are used to make High and Top Grade spirit stones, Brooch spirit stones and Circlet spirit stones. You need hundreds to make the High grade spirit stone and thousands for the others. Price is whatever you can negotiate on the market although I think the NPC price is between 10-20K each, or something like that.
  7. Can We Get RED LIBRA Now with Server Boost?

    It's May. Close enough.
  8. Mentor's quest

    Make sure that you are logged in when they ding 105. If not, you lose out on clan quest.
  9. Did 16th Anniversary Boxes Stop Dropping?

    I have over 2200 of those anniversary coins at the moment. At this point they should scrap the event and roll back server settings to max boosted levels. Nothing to see or do but grind.
  10. Did 16th Anniversary Boxes Stop Dropping?

    It's now Monday, hunting in different spot ALL day where they are supposed to drop, but still no box drops. Why do we have to wait until Wednesday? Are they going to extend the event? If not, bring servers down now for emergency maintenance. This anniversary is turning into Murphy's Law: Anything that can go wrong is going wrong.
  11. I just went all weekend hunting in appropriate areas, including staying logged in overnight, but didn't get a single box drop. What gives? I get low drop chance is normal, but this is beyond ridiculous. Come on, guys, you can do better than this.
  12. R95 dual daggers

    Ah, that makes sense now. How married are you to that character? You can't create new characters now, but you can on Wednesday, 5/6. If you don't have much invested in that character, or have jewels, dyes or something that are expensive to move/transfer, you could just create a new character. Then do the Tarti quest to get the free armor and weapon, shots, rose and other 7 day Vitality saving scroll. It won't take long to go from 1-87 again. 25-35 minutes at most. Plus you will want to get the 1-20 buff from the Adventurer NPC that keeps you from getting PKed by higher levels. It lasts for 2 hours, so you can probably reach level 100 or 101 before it fades.
  13. How do i get a strider

    Check Auction House. Not worth buying in my opinion. All they do is eat. Also, before you buy make sure you're in level range of strider -- 10 levels iirc -- or you won't be able to control it and it will eat you. Ok, maybe not eat you. But it won't follow your commands.
  14. R95 dual daggers

    What level were you when you came back to game? Did you complete any of the Tarti starter quests? That is where you get the free equipment, including Apoc Dual Daggers with built in SA. That's a separate question. My main question is how are you hunting? A dagger doesn't kill with p.atk. They kill with skills. So I need to figure out your hunting style to maybe help steer you right. The mobs in DEV (Altar and Swamp) are not hard to kill. They are perfect for your level. So something else is going wrong.
  15. Skills

    Oh, forgot to mention that price for Spirit Ore changes from town to town. Right now on Chronos it's cheaper in Giran than in Aden for example.
