    @ShouK

    You attacked me for offering a solution to more than just yourself. ~ I've already reported you for this.

    You attacked me. Not the other way around. ~ It's plainly visible.

    I know its definitely my own problem, I have to play on satellite internet due to no other options being available in my area. I play with around 2k ping on any game I play and it is really awful.

    Can't do dan tests unless I go to my friends house. Then they are easy peasy! But here, yeah I will say they are all impossible. Would be up for a nerf.

    ah yes my thread.
    it was connection problem at that specific time. i made that thread to notify the team and looking if other have the same problem at that specific time.
    it was a bit hilarious that one ignorant person post his ping test a few days late after the problem is over and told other to tweak their service.msc when no one ask for it.
    now he even quote it on thread unrelated to it.

    i don't mind explaining things to people with comprehension disability as long as they are nice, but i really don't want to do that to one with attitude problem.

    like i said in a thread long time ago. please dont try to talk to me and i will do the same to you. have a nice day ^^. (really i don't want any of my comment or thread got dragged into some cringe worthy debate. sorry.)

    @Hardmuscle
    My friend lives a town over. They have mediacom. They don't have connection issues. We can't get anything other than satellite cause we live on the edge of town and live (unfortunately) 600 feet out of service range.

    edit: Btw, am not mad at anyone. I got a lot of patience dealing with my internet. Just thought I would share my situation and agree I would like a nerf too. Admitted that its entirely on me and my cruddy internet also!

    Got an intel i7 8700k with 64 gb of ddr4 ram with 2 GTX Titans and i have google fiber connection.

    Nope, must be my problem.

    you clearly aren't using the correct titans, i bet it will solve when you upgrade to a titan Xp, you're probably using a titan X pascal which isnt the same thing because nvidia sucks, would also advise against getting a titan V because nvidia forgot to add the sli thingy to those and what kinda uncultured swine doesnt run quad gpu setups :^)

    also i dont think the 8700k has enough cores for mabinogi

    Ouch @ satellite being your only option. We live like 1/4 of a mile out of service range of cable, but we at least get DSL. :(

    @Hardmuscle: What is the "latency" and "jitter" at the bottom of the speed test results from that website? My numbers were 95ms and 4ms... Is that relevant to any of this ping thing? (Sorry for my ignorance, lol. :# )

    Also on Satellite. Unless a better ISP can expand into my area my situation is incurable. :(

    Kinda neat results to share, my internet is being (subjectively) really great right now!

    CMD revealed to me, my ms connecting to speedguide.net and nexon.net (I tried both) were 600-2.7k ms. A super varied result! After a few lines however, it was just a bunch of connection timed out.

    But yea, anyone with normal internet should definitely try all the solutions Hardmuscle suggested. Every little bit helps, when it comes to latency, I say.

    so for the last year (almost) i been pretending the advancement tests do not exist.... for the simple reason that they are not friendly to those of us with high ping..... i just spent 5 minutes in chain slasher advancement test pinned against the wall by 30 bats.... i tried to kill them one at a time but NOOOO... they all agro at the same time and take turns hitting u so no skills for u! u cant even normal attack or even counterwm... this is ridiculous. as of now i only have dan1 skills only cause at higher ranks the lag is so much that skills don't load in time... anyways... I'm done with Dan tests until they decide to nerf them for our sake... i mean the advancements test should be about us being able to complete a task using the skills provided... not to pray to rngesus and pinGOD for the lucky break to do it when the stars align!

    please nexon nerf these tests! if not... then -removed- (Please do not dodge the language filter.)Dan tests.

    Who said Dan tests were supposed to be easy to complete? You think Phantasm doesn't have multi-aggro? If it means so much to you, go to your school or library just to do the Dan test (most schools and libraries have wicked fast internet).

    Bruh.. the main problem isn't that the Dan itself is really hard.. I mean of course you have to depend on RNG but beside of that.. our connection lags is what makes it really bad.
    Im using fiber connection with 100mbps+ and it's still hard because I have 220+ ping (EU).
    Obviously there are times where I (luckily) pass these tests but most of the time its 10x harder than people who have less than 50 ping.

    The tests were made and tested with nearly no lag in mind because Kr is much smaller than the Us, thus the test is a bit more difficult for us since we basically copy/paste content from Kr.

    The tests aren't impossible, unless you hover above 100 ms all the time. Seriously if it's not lag then you are probably missing something or just have a bit of bad luck, these tests are for proving your mastery with the skill. Not everything in this game should be cleared on the first try with mistakes made at every turn.

    Some suggestions seem possible, this is not one of them.
