I'll just add the ideas:

- Change it so we only need 1 char to open Nirvana - It takes a lot of time to make 3 alts lvl 100 to just open Nirvana... and not everybody can run 4 clients, so... 

- Add some sort of pack - I am a gambler, and... I haven't seen a single pack we can open and let RNGesus take the wheel, the packs can be either made with ice shards or be dropped by some bosses we can farm ( Nirvana's last boss for example) and the rewards could be ice/fire shards, ice clusters, wraith officer's badges and the really big prize maybe one frostburn token?

- Help with materials dropped from mobs - I've been playing for about 2 days now and I spent all the gold I got on materials (~50-60 gold so far) and I only got lvl 6 Tailoring, I've tried farming the mobs for the drop but they barely drop (got 5-10 mats for one hour of grinding and you usually need 40 of each mat or more for one crafting level), made an alt the same level as the mobs... same results.

Hi,

1- Maybe only 1 char is too little, but i will consider reducing the current number.

2- There are already some random based rewards in quests and events. I will think about adding something similar to what you described, mostly focused on the fun-random aspect

3-In one of the first updates, we've already introduced a custom crafting skill item, to get the desired skill up to lv 6 with only 50 gold. Its in the "Other"->"crafting" tab on the boutique. I think its reasonable enough considering the gold from votes and being online.

Yeah... so... some of them are sugestions, but there's a LOT of complaining and whining:

- All these limitations... - All these limitations, only +10, no r9 or r8 recast... these things do NOTHING for the PvP side of the game, afterall we are all going to have the same endgear and all this is doing is hurt us on the PvE side... which should be easier since this is advertised as being a PvP server. Let us have more gears.

 

- The lack of a warm welcome - A new player joins the game, he sees a boutique with high prices ( I know that almost all items from the boutique can be obtained WITH EASE without spending a single gold, but, a new player doesn't know that, and might not stick around to find that out ), he goes to the Frostburn Merchant and looks at all the new currency types ( Meta shards/Ice Shards/ Fire Shards/ Elemental Catalyst/ Blood Shards/ Ice Clusters) and gets confused, goes to kill a few mobs and barely gets any exp, gets level 9 or 19 and sees that he needs to do culti... a new player will just get confused and might just leave the game within seconds. 

For the love of God remove all the useless items like Blood Shards that NOBODY bothers to pick up, the Meta Shards that just doubles the time we spend at the Frostburn Merchant since we use them just to craft Elemental Catalysts.Also, remove all the cultivation quests untill level 79, this server already is 90% afk and grind, which you can't even do because everytime you leave the safezone somebody will just fall from a tree and oneshot you ( " Well d'oh, it's a PvP server " ... yeah, yeah it is, but how are people suposed to PvP if they just get stomped by people that are already geared? why would they waste time trying to farm and avoid PK-ers when they just can join one of the other dozens of servers? ) and doing cultivation is almost impossible since there are no players that are willing to help untill you join a guild.. if one of the executors are online since THEY ARE ALL AFK GRINDING FOR 10 HOURS A DAY OR LAYING DEAD SOMEWHERE BECAUSE THEY HAVE BEEN KILLLED FOR THE 20TH TIME IN LESS THAN 10 MINUTES.

 

- Better beginer gears - Add " Ultima of All " item as a Level x Unique Reward and Winged Commander NPC in West so players can get some better gear. The level 40 gear that we get.... sucks... and barely holds up in PvE.

 

- Modify one of the dungeons - Change one of the dungeons to drop a decent ammount of ice shards ( you can usualy farm 1k ice shards in 20 minutes). All the quests from the Frostburn Merchant and the modified normal quests give so little that most people don't even bother doing them. Said dungeon could be PV since it scales with level so new players can try it.

 

- Frostburn tokens - Please, let us trade Ice Clusters for FSB? Ice Clusters can only be obtained from grinding and FSB tokens... can be >>mainly<< made from Chest Event that... you can't do if you're not geared since either players or mobs kill you, or by doing FSP.... if you can find players.

 

 - Be EU friendly - There are almost no events European players can do... that's all.

- Normal crafting - I've been trying to boost my channelling on my magic characters by trying to create accesories with multiple -3 or -6 channelling but the materials are too expensive and can be obtained only by farming ( I am talking about mats from mobs) or spending tons of gold... I didn't even get one -3 channelling after almost 50 tries.... either help us by increasing the chance for this kind of stats, or let us trade Ice Clusters ( that we get from grinding mobs, which would just turn grinding into grinding ) for mats dropped from mobs.

- Lower the ALT maximum - 5 I feel like is too much and people that can run 5 clients have an advantage over the others, I think 3 clients should be more than plenty.

All in all... this server is very well managed... but poorly created... too many restrictions, too much grinding for a PvP server, too many modifications. Keep it simple... this server just wants to look too fancy but fails, hard.

 

I can overlook all the flaws and try to enjoy it because I just like the server and have hopes for the future, but not many others do... that's why the community is so small and why people keep leaving.

PS: I am sorry if I butchered too many words...

*This is just my opinion*

1- Endgame gears- Endgame sets will more then likely change with the server progression. Granted right now I believe the current sets are fine as is. I would say maybe add in different shards for the players personal customization's, Aside from JoSD's/Deities.

2-  Boutique - I think maybe the vote per gold could be increased just a tad maybe? Currently right now its 5 Per vote. Granted, if you character is online it can obtain gold that way as well. Which helps a lot. The boutique itself isn't meant to be used a lot, Mainly for cosmetic purposes/Mounts/Flyers. Which if voting consistently and being online. You could get some of the desired items quickly. I do think that some prices should be adjusted however over all, Or make more items available through the FB merch. (Suggestions from players would be nice.)

As for the Frostburn specific items, Vix has done a wonderful job explaining it in this Guide.

3- Blood shards- I'm kinda with you on that, Not entirely but I've been seeing the issue that you've stated. Blood shards are intended to help with the PK aspect of the server, Granted, I've been seeing exploits on that.. Maybe adding them elsewhere or doing something differently with them could help solve that problem. As for the Meta> Catalyst, Maybe increasing the amount given? Dunno. I'll leave that one floatin.

4- Better starter gear- I personally really like this idea. This helps jumpstart newer players, it could also help them with their own spiritual cultivation. Cultivation doesn't take long to do at all, but it would be smoother if maybe a better starter set was implemented.

5- Dungeon- I kind of find this one redundant just cause there's a lot of mobs out there that drop Ice shards/Clusters/ Fire shards. Though, I do have an idea for that maybe. I'll keep that disclosed to the Staff for now.

6- Frostburn Tokens- This ones a no for my part for obvious reasons. Its super simple farming Clusters/shards. As is we already have a lot of events that offer FBT as the rewards. Open world chest have FBT, Though few. Its farmable. Check Patch note 20. Don't know if you tried it but you can also try the Shipbattle Grounds Event. Check Patch 21. Heavenfall Temple though tedious , Greatly rewards the player at the last few floors. Check Patch 23 notes. There's also undercurrent hall and Fsp of course, Granted those you may need to have your full end game sets.

7- Timezone- I think its time to maybe review the Redux on that one. Or maybe find a median time to fit both parties.  Timezone Redux

8- Craft- I think maybe adding specific shards to the game can help with that, maybe custom channel shards or something. That could maybe help Arcanes with their struggles in endgear. (?? though)

9- Alts- I can't really speak for that, its 5 currently due to people in the same households.

Anyways this is just my opinion

We do appreciate the suggestions.

1- "Endgame sets will more then likely change with the server progression" - 

When? This server's been up for quite a while...

 

2- I didn't say that the prices aren't fair, I'm just trying to say that they LOOK too big and I said that almost all the items from the boutique can be obtained without spending a single gold.

 

3- For the Blood Shards, an easy " fix " for those would be to add them in a larger quantity to specific mobs. For example, why would I waste those 3 seconds it takes me to pickup 2 Blood Shards when I can just pickup one Ice Cluster that is worth 10 times that amount and move on to the next mob to kill? Not to mention that it is not worth the effort, if those mobs instead of dropping 2-3 Blood Shards and 1 Ice Cluster would drop 2 Blood Clusters ( 10 Blood Shards ) and 1 Ice Cluster, it would increase the risk vs reward aspect and I'll try to farm them.

 

5- For the dungeon, what I'm trying to say there is that IF we have a Dungeon, where we ACTIVELY farm for Ice Shards/Clusters instead of just pressing F12 and going AFK it would kinda solve the problem of new players getting stomped when trying to grind. Also, if they are active while farming that dungeon, the players can see the world chat and give a helping hand or an advice to those that need it.

6- I get it, it was just a suggestion, I kinda had my doubts about that one.

7- Yes, PLEASE.

8- Custom " shards " would just mean more work done to implement them and then... I can bet that they'll be wayyy too overpriced... Ice Shards or coins for mats I think is the way to go, get them, craft the item, and then hope for the stats, that way you would create basic ornaments and get - channelling so you would trade defensive for offensive. If some sort of channelling shards would be implemented the mages would keep all the stats and get an entirely new buff which could make them overpowered, not to mention that all the other clases could make them ( imagine insta cast Archers)

9- I get it.

no hope for changing timezone because vix is waiting for people to vote for -3 to win -3 timezone.. haha look its already 2months . and still no change . and his answer is because this game is base on U.S/Canada 😀

I think Sol covered most of the points greatly, so there is not much more to add.

I'll work on some of the issues borught up here, mostly the farming/dungeon/shards, initial gear and maybe the timezone and some cultivation modifications. I'll try to have most of this done for the next couple of updates.

Hello, 

obtaining fbt has been an issue since i joined this game...chest event is a real pain for new players since geared players enjoy getting their name more red from them. 

I've always liked the idea of having a dungeon for farming fbt...fsp and undercurrent requires a full geared squad and is pointless to farm for new players..

so the idea is (with taking example from Alex's pack idea) make a dungeon where u farm packs that give fbt,ice and fire shards etc 

Just a thought to help this dying server D: <3
