    @ Finity I'm pretty sure that if Nexon could extend the Premium/VIP, they would have in order to avoid all the issues resulting from it. Also, Nexon NA (our branch) doesn't handle any of the actual programming with the game, that's the Korean branch. Unfortunately, we will highly unlikely hear back about anything until at least Monday as Nexon NA has to request a fix from Nexon Korea and that's hoping they got the request out Thursday night.

    Best thing you can do is to take screenshots of the combo card's boosts so you can hopefully get them reissued once the issue is resolved or get your revival cards (whichever solution they go with).

    If anyone had a guild go down too, submit a ticket.

    In the meantime, everyone just remain calm and wait for news from Nexon. Personally, I'd much rather they take their time fixing something and make sure it's fixed.

    I'm not asking for extension of free VIP/Premium. Nowhere in my post I asked for free VIP/Premium.
    I think it's hinted somewhere in forums that free trial somehow broke it.

    I know NA branch doesn't handle programming part of this game and that is why I don't expect bugs/glitches to be fixed in time. Still, it doesn't require programming fix to hand out revival cards.

    Nothings done in time anymore. Things are said that they'll get it done "soon" yet it took about 10 months to update VIP(I bought 7 months of it), paid name changes are said soon but still not yet, people will +tags can't even join guilds still, if you login to a different channel during dungeon you can't re-enter anymore, bugs and glitches from last year are still lingering around, I report bugs in tickets that "will be investigated" but never get replied further thus never getting fixed.
    I know they cannot process anything (that requires programming) fast enough, that's why I rather ask for temporary fix that can be done with clerical effort.

    They can take as much time as they need fixing it, but at least provide revival cards for those who are affected by it, so they can use it meanwhile waiting for a fix.

    +I asked around friends in-game about this issue, and some people who are affected by it didn't even realize that their combo cards are deactivated due to glitch. Only posting this issue in Discord chat really helps, does it?

    You asked for a temporary fix for the issues, one of that would be extending the trial of the Premium/VIP if they were able, so my bad for assuming that was part of what you were hoping to have done. Sure, they might be able to do the Combo Card Recovery Coupon to fix the card issue, but another thing is whether they CAN, as in if they have the approval to do so. If they don't have that, then no dice; their hands are tied.

    We don't even know what the issue even involves in its entirety. We know the Premium/VIP update had issues and had to be taken down. It could be more extensive than we even know. So a temporary fix might not be feasible either. I know it's annoying, but just keep a log of your issues and screencaps if possible. That's all that can be done at the moment.

    Wait, if you log-in to a different channel while in a dungeon, you can't go back into it? That makes sense as the dungeon that you were previously was in was in another channel. I would think that was a glitch in itself if it let you do that.

    Honestly not blaming any staff here, just poor business decision as Nexon NA in general. (Like late approval, or no actions)
    I have tested out myself that combo card revival still works. (+I handed out what I have and theirs works too)
    It works yet I don't think anyone should be buying this because of this bug.

    The dungeon thing- it was a feature you could re-enter from any channel that you log onto after you d/c (the re-enter message says you will get moved to a channel that the dungeon was on) but at one point last year, it got broken.

  • Fix The Gap B/w Giants and Every Other Race

    Balancing and meta changes frequently nowadays but in a different way. We rarely get skills directly buffed like renovation update.
    Rather than changing/fixing the talent and skills itself we get updates with new weapons(example: kraken weapons) or weapon enhancing methods- like spirit weapon or erg. In other words, if you don't invest into erg or spirit weapon or certain type of weapon that are new, you won't feel any difference.
    Each type of weapon receives different erg effects and in upcoming update, each spirit weapons will have different unique upgrades and ultimate spirit skill. The effects are something amazing(knuckles, 2h swords, etc's erg,) if devs intended to buff it, and it's something lame if devs intended to nerf it. (example: 1h sword only gets 20 weapon damage at erg 50) Eventually the buffed weapon will overpower non-buffed weapon and be the new meta- which is indirect nerf to non-buffed weapons.
    The same happens with spirit weapon update, except that you can choose your spirit weapon upgrade path. But some weapon's ultimate are not so useful than others (bow/crossbow's ultimate is unlimited arrow/bolts- I rather pick something that helps dps than this, 2h's ultimate is movement speed increase for 10 seconds after finishing an enemy) so they're are bound with other upgrade paths, while some weapons ultimate effects are very useful. If those buffed/nerfed weapons are affected by racial disadvantage/advantage, it'll make many people dissatisfied.

    Long story short, people won't really be happy when there's a really old outdated racial gap that makes no sense in today's standards and "balancing" is done through p2w contents.

    I also doubt that spirit weapon update really fixed magic, magic still has it's own problems that are neglected. Most of monsters in end-game content has high magic defense and protection. Intermediate magic is notorious for drawing aggro and scattering monsters. Magic is crippled with its damage calculation as well, going from 800 to 900 magic attack will gain less than going from 300 to 400 magic attack.(The higher you get, the less you'll gain!) Magic enchants give pathetically low magic attack compared to max damage enchants, etc.
    Most of this is also correct except the part about matk being diminishing return, 300 to 400 for example with fireball adds 1200 to it's base damage, 800 to 900 also adds 1200, before fire mastery or any other multipliers like combo cards of course, matk adds flat min/max but each spell has a different coefficient so some benefit less than others, like icebolt for example will only get 40 max from that same 100 matk.

    Aren't elves supposed to be stupidly OP in Korea? Perhaps the giant update was to give them more parity there.
    Elf mag spam is the best dps in the game, but archery is broken in NA due to aim rate being tied to latency and mabinogi using in order encrypted TCP packets to communicate with the server, 90% on KR is 90% but 90% on NA is only 90% if you're in Oregon (California before servers were moved to amazon cloud), the further you are the more desynced your client aim meter and the server side aim meter become due to the repeated latency add from TCP acknowledgements. In KR you're generally going to have 1~3ms of latency to the server, so little to no desync occurs and you'll see any korean elf gameplay video archery will hit much more than the vast majority of NA player's because of that. Personally after 7 years of playing an elf trying to use archery with 48~68ms of latency, I find archery to be completely unusable. A large part of why I play a giant now.

    Also props to Maia for being one of the only people to understand you can play on other characters of other races instead of crying for nerfs on the forum every update.


    I could go on and on but honestly for everyone that thinks X race is "op" play it or Y race "is trash" don't play it, leveling up is trivialized by blaanid beginner quests + baltane missions, training skills is trivialized by talent level bonus skill exp, ap training, training seals, and constant training events/training potion handouts from events so there's 0 excuse not to play another character, I shelved my 25k total elf with basically every skill r1/cap to play giant and my giant's already 27k with everything r1/cap besides magic craft, act 9, and rest in less than a third of the time it took to get my elf there due to the HEAVY casualization of the game that TRIVIALIZES character progression in comparison to how it use to be. Yes I know you can get 40k+ and all skills in less than a year but I'm a casual deal with it.

    You're right- I was wrong about diminishing return. Magic is really a complicated talent to balance because every skill has different formula so every skill get effected differently with same magic attack value. At this point I really don't expect magic to be fixed nor for elves to get proper racial advantage with it.

    It is really not easy to switch to different character, I know starting up a new character is much easier with memorial update, frequent training boost event and additional multiplier item such as prisms but it still takes a lot of effort to achieve other things- such as building up cumulative level for shine of eweca, renown, alban totem(or commander totem), dan tests,gens,grandmaster, combo card, squires(for extra stats),etc and of course making or buying entire different equip sets. I'm pretty sure a lot of people never wanna do it again, including myself. Especially with how bad reforging is nowadays :(

  • (KR) Beauty Box Season 6

    Will they ever adjust eye positions for elves and giants? Some eyes look abnormal on elves and giants, especially giants.

  • With the 2h update...

    I would say Fanatic is best for cheap weapon choice, because it got cheap prefix(Silence: B rank enchant, max 20~27) that is better than Demi lich, and the cost of making it is so low - people drop mats on ground during/after vhm. You could just keep making swords, keep some high damage ones, and blow it up until one of them survive to step 7, if you don't mind building up proficiency.
    Also you can get to like lv25~30 erg without spending too much money, because 2 handed sword erg does not require song stardust or instrument string.
