Did you do card upgrades or card exploring? The quest this time is exploring, not upgrading.

in description it says have 3 level 4 cards. I have 3 level 4 cards and get no bonus.

This one has, last I heard, been confirmed as a typo. It is supposed to say “4 level 3 cards” instead of “3 level 4 cards”. You can also see that the third level of that currently says “8 level 4 cards” which of course is impossible, and is supposed to say “4 level 8 cards”, which is……well, basically impossible, but at least doable…..somewhere down the road :)

Topic: Wartune / S1 got theirs but what about S5/S6/S7/S10

Originally posted by capatheist:

yes it was…. why else would he say how things are “after the merge” if not making a direct correlation?

I do believe he was making a correlation. However (and this is my main point), there is a big difference between correlation and causation. For instance, the sale of ice cream sales and air conditioning sales are highly correlated, but that doesn’t mean that if I go out and buy 300 tons of ice cream, air conditioning businesses are suddenly going to see massive profits, as there is a third-party in play. I never intended to catch you at your wording, because I believe you write what you mean, which is why I was cautioning you for making the dangerous jump from correlation to causation. So if I’m being pedantic for taking you at your word, so be it.

And you have every right to complain and express your opinion, so long as it does not hamper or insult another person’s right to do so. Telling someone that their opinion is BS is doing just that.

Topic: Wartune / S1 got theirs but what about S5/S6/S7/S10

Edge’s post is really long, so don’t want to quote that lol. I would like to respond, however.

1) Yes, I worded that poorly, I knew when I wrote it – _ – I was hoping the “maybe” (which is missing from your quote) and the “could” would show that this was entirely speculation, as I have no idea. And perhaps this badly worded part is why people think it’s blaming. Every guild should try to do in-house runs, it only makes sense. The “fact” here is a figure of speech that was meant to say “in that”. I guess I should have said that the “new blood” already had pre-set groups or were running with guildies, so that the overall makeup of mpd running hardly changed.

2) Sure, I don’t do morning WB, but I do night WB 6 out of 7 days a week. Maybe the higher up levels aren’t on at that time a lot. So I can’t really speak for the morning. But considering I’m comparing night WB to night WB (and higher levels absent in both cases), it’s still an accurate depction imo. When the high levels are on, you sure know it! And WB can be down in 10 minutes now when the beasts are out, so my approximately half description is still viable (again, it’s an approximation which varies).

3) But I’m not seeing MORE mpd announcements; I’m just seeing the same people throwing up an announcement every 2-3 minutes asking for help, and this happens for 15-20 minutes. And it really hurts me because I would like to help them, but with limited playing time, I do need to get my stuff done too :( This is usually for people in moonevil den or lower. And by “late at night” I mean 8:00 and after, so I get the runs that I try to, but I do skip some stuff (i.e. I almost never run spire), so you’re right there in that I am drawing from a limited timezone, although the same thing does happen on weekends. I’m not worried about myself, or even my guild. We do fine, help each other, and when we can’t, we ask outside the guild (and since over half of the remaining population is you guys, you probably do get a lot of PM’s from us lol). And we help you guys too, when we get PM’s from you. And FYI, I never said the word “fact” here, it was just a talking point.

And just a couple more things:

1) Just like I said before, I never said this was a merge issue. And I never complained. I was fine with the status quo, and now we’ve reached a new one that isn’t that much different than the old one, so why would I complain?
2) We don’t blame your guild for anything, I’m not sure where you hear that, we use you for inspiration and a benchmark to reach.
3) Our guild has a lot of people with limited playing time. I hope you can understand that and not call it a “your guild” issue.
4) I only referred to you guys in general because I was responding to Capatheist, who is not in S1, so therefore namedropping would have meant nothing to him and been pointless. It was not meant as a slight, which apparently you have taken it to be, so I apologize for that.

Originally posted by Runawaysnaggle:

Such ridiculousness. One guild merged into the “one guild” and I still see advertisements in world chat for LLNM, DI, Spire, a variety of ToK, and Nirv NM. I assume you’re looking at 80mp’s. Since there were a whopping 12 lvl 80’s from S12 and most if not all of them were already in pre-set everyday groups, what exactly did you expect? And the one guild does help their guild mates with their mp’s…maybe the other guild should work a little harder at that.

Also..instead of lasting 19mins like WB used to pre-merge, it now lasts 14mins or so. That’s not half, that’s about 25%. Don’t tell me that WB lasts less than 10 minutes now. People really will distort facts for no reason other than to justify complaining. I said from the getgo that this server merge wouldn’t fix much because of the comparison of levels between the 2 pre-merged servers. Did we benefit from it for CSGB? Yes we did. But if you’re trying to pin anything on us because we merged with what would have been the third or 4th placed guild in terms of BR, that’s just stupid.

Woah there, ease up cowboy! First, I’m not blaming anyone. It’s just the way the cookie crumbles I suppose. But it’s funny how your post is actually supporting my viewpoint. I myself am not level 80 (hope to be there soon), and I don’t have time lately to run much except on weekends and late at night. The pre-set groups and the advertisements that seem to go on forever are exactly my point. Nothing has changed in mpds. The only way our guild is able to run stuff nowadays it seems is if we help each other run, which we do without complaint, I might add, as I’m sure you do as well. But where does that leave every other guild?

However, your WB numbers are very skewed. I know for a fact that pre-merge WB was 25+ minutes, because you could no longer enter battlegrounds after the 22:00 WB. And the last WB I did (two days ago) lasted between 12 and 13 minutes. That’s about half in my book. And again, I’m actually discussing more about lower levels (69 and under) then myself or the higher leveled characters.

then THEY are the problem… not the merge.

For someone who is complaining how they’re being misunderstood on another of the forum posts, you sure are good at misunderstanding stuff yourself! Dyasha did not say the merge was the cause of the problem. He simply stated what the end result was. You then inferred a cause-effect relationship which was not there.

S1 is worse now than before the merger. No one does mpd now. It’s unplayable now.

justify that…. how is that possible? server 12 were so upset at loosing ranks they managed to quit to a point where server 1 had less people than before? pfffftt BS

There is literally zero increase in people doing mpds. I don’t know how it’s possible either, except to say that maybe the fact that a vast majority of the active server 12 population went to one guild and they are doing in-house mpds could be a factor. For those of us outside that one guild, though, the only noticeable difference is that the world boss time (and therefore payout), has roughly been cut in half. For lower levels, this means that the merger is a detriment to them.

Topic: Wartune / Change in attack element effect?

5 star blue gaia with 22k br! O_O bows . But yes, I always seem to get stuck on that boss too due to the fact that I also only have a 5k br white amazon queen. I have beat it in the other GD’s by switching, but this time, switching didn’t help, so I just stopped at that boss. I’m really interested to know if this is a bug or something permanent just for GD.

Gaia gives not 5%dmg, but 5% to patk/matk . 1.5k dmg means ~3k patk/matk, so u need to have 60k patk/matk to say what switching sylphs in atoll dont make your attacks in player phase elemental. BTW i tested that with white 1lvl sylphs Gaia (5%patk) and Amazon (5%patk), so switching sylphs dont change my patk at all, but i can see difference in damage.

Dude, we’re not talking about atoll. It works in atoll. We’re talking about God’s Descent. So please stop referencing atoll when no one is talking about it. And yes, I know it’s not damage, but for PVE, it might as well be. I was trying to type fast, but if you want to call it out, feel free. And I have about 45k patk, which means 5% is 2,250 damage increase, which is (by your calculations) approximately 1,125 damage increase. With the randomness of damage (and the fact that I only did two autos in GD because, well, it’s GD), I’d say it’s about right.

when u wearing sylph – all your attacks becomes elemental, and u got corresponding element defs/weakneses too. Check for example in sylph atoll. Wear gaia, use autoattacks in player mode, remember numbers, and after that go to pan stage and check there. U’ll see a diff in damage. Same in any other place. For example fighting Treasure Maps bosses. watch dmg of water boss on player which equip gaia and switch to amazon after that.

You are indeed correct. However, the OP is also correct. In God’s Descent, this change of element only seems to occur in sylph mode. Normal attacks do NOT have an element associated with them. I also tested it out with iris vs. gaia on a water level, and the only difference in auto attack was about 1500 damage, which is what the 5% damage increase gaia gives to me.

Topic: Wartune / shards wtf !

While I understand where you are coming from, as I “wasted” 10k insignia as well, the way I view it, I would have spent those anyway if this patch hadn’t come out, so I don’t consider it to be a loss. Therefore, I am viewing this change in an entirely positive manner, as now I won’t have to spend as many insignia or crypt tokens in the future.

Yeah “Less exciting for someone working on level 8s”

Sorry, but when do lv6 gems fall out of the sky?

you can see this on tok nm when those players are uber boosted

Not really a problem when attack scales alongside HP, your HP won’t reach 500k without your opponents attack scaling to dish much more damage. Numbers are high and seem OP but it “would” of been pretty much same as is now.

ToK’s a different thing all together since the opponents are much stronger than you, so of course they block heal more than you can damage them. Well regardless what it is it is, existed for a long enough time on CN servers so unless every uber knight casher complains it’ll stay at 3k.

I entirely disagree. Currently, a knight would recover 3k hp on block if he/she had 75,000 hp. I currently have twice that amount, meaning on block, I recover about 6k hp on block. In other words, my only healing mechanism (other than a heal rune) has been cut in half. And I’m not even a heavy casher.

Topic: Wartune / How to get high MDEF in KNIGHTS

Originally posted by JAYMZ78:

i do get killed by hades..worse than apollo i think at this point. and i agree 5k block is the minimum for it to work right. i just swapped back from crit 2 days ago. crit was 9909 right after the event. being only 153k br i was able to get to 3/4 sky trail without mire rune. not something i could do with wd. also i probably won alot of pvp fights i shouldnt be able to just because of the reliable crit rate with gaia. but, i feel better using wd again. its just feels less unstable. clearly there are many builds a knight could use swapping their resources around. my build is to face electro and light specifically.

“Only” 153k br? Mind if I borrow that? Some of us wouldn’t mind having “only” that br lol. And I beat up to 3/7 with “only” 130k br, with WD and no mire, so it can be done with WD.

Back to the topic, though, I agree with what most people said. However, I wouldn’t recommend giving up defense, as the attacks that sylphs do when not awakened are not blockable. I have patk and block gems on all my equipment, and then rotate between pdef, mdef, and hp gems for the other two slots.

Topic: Wartune / Some questions

I am a knight, but do not use a pan sylph, so, as squigylon, take it for what it’s worth.

1) I do believe the game “checks” your hp upon creation of the shield, so increasing hp while the shield is active shouldn’t make it stronger.

2) I do think these buffs will stack, but I know for certain that a 30% reduction combined with a 40% reduction will not be a 70% reduction, but a 58% reduction. Buffs will NOT stack additively, as the game checks not the amount of reduction, but the amount of damage remaining that “gets through” to the enemy. It’s confusing, so I’ll share this example, assuming the damage reduction does stack.

30% reduction = 70% of normal damage gets through
40% reduction = 60% of normal damage gets through

So total damage = 70% x 60% = 42% of normal damage = 58% reduction

Topic: Wartune / Will Crystals

Thunderbold, as I thought I had the same issue a few weeks ago, I checked something, and it’s not that your crystal resistance is 300, but that your TOTAL resistance is 300. This does not just come from crystals, but from your sylph as well. Except for Hades and Apollo (who I do not have and therefore cannot confirm their attributes), all sylphs “add” a total of -50 to your resistances. If your crystals add up to 300, add up your total resistance (the numbers found on the left side of the battle protection screen), as this may be less than 300. If so, there’s a simple fix: Simply unequip your sylph. You will get the will crystal slots, and once they are open, they won’t close again, even if your resistances fall back below 300 (so yes, you can put your sylph back on).

Hope this helps!

Worst thing for non-cashers about new events is having to calculate whether we have enough event items to get the event mount… and Im kinda tired after calculating for so many months now

Can any good Samaritan out there help do the dirty work? :)

Not sure if I did this right, but not counting if you do the reset trick, I see that NO mount is available for non-cashers. I calculated that 64 fate scraps and 49 wishing scraps are available. That would mean 81 wishing scraps to trade for mount, and the lowest cost one is 100 (the gentle beast). So unless they bring out more quests or do something interesting with those “exotic” things, then we’re stuck once again with nothing.

Why did they change the battleground time to be the same as redogra drake? Is that supposed to be the case and now must choose between the two? That seems awfully cruel, to put two events at the same time….

I thought there were TEN BGs you could enter with this patch. If one or two coincide with an event or two, is that a big deal? :)

The only reason I was asking is because the “daily events” tab differs from what you mentioned earlier. It says battlegrounds run from 13:00-15:00 (which many people will miss because of school/work) and from 22:00-23:00 (aka same time as redoga drake), not a continuous thing. So it seems like they’re making us choose. If I’m reading this wrong, please let me know. Thanks KnowingEyes for your quick response! :)

Topic: Dream World / Official Bug Reports Thread (new)

Not sure if this is really noteworthy but thought I would mention it anyway. When doing the demon slayer quest, when you return after opening the three gates he originally asked, he responds with “The demons in the normal gats are too weak.” Obviously a simple typo, but things like that bug me and could turn some players off, so I thought I should report it.
