    Last updated: 29/6/2017 3:12pm (UK time) Aerial Island: Map: Monster: Surgewind Wilds: Map: Monster: Cloudburst Forest: Map: Monster: The guide above is subjected to changes.. If there is any mistake, do let me know The Surgewind and Aerial seem to be fine but it seems that there are a few things that are odd when I wonder around the Cloudburst Forest. For example: 1. When I flew to the Jungle Cave, and walked along the route, it said that it was 'Surgewind' instead of Jungle Cave. 2. At the bottom left, the is a place called ' Ancient ruins' which I marked it as '?' since ancient ruins might be a quest name and not really the name of the location. 3. When I wonder around Surgewind and Aerial, the name of the places pop up but not in Cloudburst Forrest. Thus, Cloudburst Forest might still be a developing map?

    Hello team! I'm here to talk about Raid Loot Distribution. What's wrong : As we as players are progressing in raids and forming core groups with guild members and friends we see that people are having to bid against their newly formed friendships and guildies to get gear they they all equally helped in downing and achieving. What we can do right now: Core groups are now realizing and sharing the loot as needed. We find people let one person bid on said item that way to not cause a bidding war between guildies and needlessly spending gold. As with our guildes and core 10 man what we like to do is use a "ROLL" command on a program such as Discord. This way lets say all the rangers that need the item, all roll for it, highest one then bids on the dropped item. However, the timing of of the auction goes so fast its hard to be organized and quickly find who needs what and have the people do their rolls in a 10 man let alone getting 40 guildes in larger raids. Suggestion: I understand a big way to get money is in these bidding wars with random groups. But honestly it just seems wrong, we fight and work together to progress and to down a boss together then after fighting and accomplishing the raid. We then have to have the gold to spend to get an item, oh and hope no one has more to out bid you. (farm everyday and hope those materials sell) Though I understand its part of the gold sink in the game. My suggestion is we keep it to randoms and that's fine. However if you have a group of players all in the same guild there should be a master loot option where the party leader can then distribute the gear to the correct players. You would all be in the same guild and trusting of the leader. No gold would then be profited, but then also no gold would be lost. ( if master loot is to much, at least add a guild roll option on the gear where players that need it roll for it. Highest roll = item in bag // Think guild bonfire end event ) If your guild has a better way to gear distribution on a timed fuse to make sure correct guildes get the right gear without battling each other with gold please share! Thanks for reading! @RedPanda

    1. Spellcasting bug and lag during guild hunts as well as when attacking elites. This bug is also occurring in Team Raids during boss fights. 2. Server lag, it is not just our networks and devices. NetEase servers can't handle a high capacity of players in team raids even when players viewed and resolution are lowered in the options setting. Logging in again doesn't always solve this issue. Sardar lags the worst out of all the regions in the game. 3. When in a team the other players lag behind the team leader on follow. This issue causes failures in Trials Quests, Lord Invasions, and Illusionist Lords because the other players are outside the area or boundary at the moment. 4. When doing Supply Quests there is a bug where you travel by your personal mount instead of performing the quests with the dragon. Another bug is that the game can freeze and crash during Supply Quests. 5. When doing Mystica a little after reset time on Tuesdays and Saturdays there is a bug where the team leader is unable to enter the Mystica, while the other players on the team are able to enter. I don't think you realize how frustrating and game breaking these bugs can be NetEase.

    So, many of us have been wondering why nothing has ever been done about ppl abusing the game market and running many alts to farm gold, crystals and legendary gear. Well there you have it boys and girls, Netease official response to the community is "MAKE MOARRR ALTSSSSSS" for every alt u make u gonna get a free legendary at the end of the month! hurray! ohh you want more? np, refer 10 of those alts to your main charecter, farm some achivements points on them and in a matter of weeks u will get 2 sparkling diamonds, loads of silver/gold lucky tickets 5 legendary essence and more. still not convinced? no problem, buy a 3 month goblin membership and we will even throw in 5 lvl up potions so 5 of ur alts can hit lvl 55 insta! im sorry but this is no bug, its not a glitch, its not a mistake, its deliberatly rewarding ppl who are abusing the game and this is seriously the last straw for me. i give up officially on netease this has been the worst managment of game and community, i feel like netase has done all the wrong moves handling this game. im out of it as soon as i find something else half descent to play, this is a huge fuking joke.

    Allow users to view beyond page 2 in auctions. Allow users to control market economy. Placing a gold max on an item is fine but do not enforce minimums because items like Legendary Essence become difficult to sale without doing gem trading to compensate for undercutting market. Account-wide achievements. A user should be able to complete achievements in all categories including class/profession/faction based as well as achievements for alternate subplot outcomes Inspect player from team applications screen Display path depiction icon on players in team application screen Expand damage meter to show filterable results with detailed logging similar to Recount DPS Meter plugin for WoW. This will give players an accurate way to evaluate the effectiveness of set bonus and path configurations Eliminate the need to create secondary accounts to stimulate market with obsolete blueprints by allowing the now rare level 55 patterns to sometimes create level 30 variations of this equipment which can be upgraded and then emerged. Allow players to transmog new dungeon, divine and legend items. Improve UI for chat interface as typing in game is often frustrating. Allow users to advertise the difficulty of party requests such as "Lord Invasion (Hell 3) [Request to Join]" Reduce difficulty of level 55 Mystica by tuning the damage of RNG elements (Chef Skar'vid Hook 1-shot for example) to eliminate the need to manually scale these instances with secondary accounts. As a player in the top 100 rankings I still find myself being a victim of RNG even with the aid of food buffs and flourish circles. The fights are not mechanically challenging. However, the damage is not proportional to the difficulty of the overall encounter and requires team compositions which include a minimum of two mystics in most cases. Completely remove the in-game voice chat features. It's a UI nightmare and would free up memory in-game Integrate PC controls into emulators such as Bluestack so that OSX users have access to the game via desktop/laptop Release a public facing API to gather real time data to allow community to build robust tools such as item databases which include titles, achievements, server progression, etc. This will really boost client immersion Provide more transparency for success rates on crafting legendary items to eliminate useless rituals and speculation within the community Please review the entire list of achievements currently available in-game. Adjust any achievements which are unobtainable by hiding them or correcting the requirements. (Example: Obtain items from the [Malum Crystal] set in all equipment slots. This item only drops for specific slots) Implement a system similar to transmog for "enchantments" which unlock set bonus swaps for slots once you have obtained it for that slot. For example, If I roll D1 - Secret set on a vambrace then Secret is unlocked for vambrace in the enchantment panel. If I obtain a new item upgrade which has a set bonus, D1 - Grace attached to it, that set bonus is unlocked as well. From the enchantment panel I can choose to swap Grace with previously discovered Secret set. The price to "Unlock" these sets could cost currency such as 3x the amount of the normal swap (4 scales for D1-D2, 6 scales D3-D4, 8-12 scales for G & L sets) More to come

    This game is new. It's also awesome. If you are taking the time to complain about bugs, it's because you still care. If you didn't, you would have deleted the game and moved on. I'm sure some have. We have given @RedPanda a lot of grief over the past few weeks. We complain when we feel the devs have ruined our lives. What we don't do, is say thanks as much as we should. So... Thanks to Panda for answering the same questions over and over again. Thanks for being our voice to the developers. Thanks for being our ears as well. Thanks to the developers for creating, maintaining, and upgrading our game. It's fun, and in a class of its own. You should be proud of what you have created, and the enjoyment your player base gets from it. I can't wait to see how the game evolves over time. Thats all I have for now. I simply wanted to carve out a space to show my support for this game. If you like the game, feel free to add your own two cents... but let's keep this positive.

    I normally avoid these conversations like a mosquito at Charlie Sheen's house, but as of recent, the amount of rage being spread across multiple threads is getting to be a bit much. Many of you probably won't make it through the first parts of this because bias/feels will get in the way, but hear me out if you will. Do I think classes are balanced? Not really, not at all. The disparity between them isn't this massive insurmountable gap that people would make it out to be. There are so many variables to account for when you say, "This is Bull manure! X-class out dps'd me on X-fight, nerf them! buff me! I am supposed to be top! I picked the class to do that!". Lets be clear about 1 thing, just because you role a DPS class/role, does not mean you have to be, or that is guaranteed that it will be the TOP dps. There is a reason there are 3 classes and all of them have 3 options, DPS, PVP and Support. If a game is to show real balanced, no matter the "perception" of what that class should be, if it is to fulfill the role of the PATH it chose, it should be just as viable as the other class who chose their equivalent path. As for the DPS comparisons, there are legitimate arguments I have seen constructively put up, but far more post of "This guys/that girl.. whatever.. beat me in damage.. that shouldn't happen" As any long time MMO player, your output is impacted by fight mechanics, your knowledge of fight mechanics (positioning), your playstyle, meaning your choice of path, runes, gear & stats, gems, load outs, and last but not least.... team composition. Something that may seem as insignificant as that guy over there making sure he is glued to the healer/Magellan's side so he is constantly getting the increased damage passive rune effect from the sigil the Mystic drops, or positioning between the Exe warrior and Magellan... so he gets all the external buffs, can impact his overall output. Meanwhile the ranger/mystic/whatever... who is running all over the place away from group, outside of the "buff zones" is wondering why he is being out damaged so badly when he is avoiding all the bosses damage and doing his rotations perfectly... I mean, he knows the fight.. he is doing everything right... right, RIIIGGGHHHTTTT? This is not a jab at rangers, just a simple observations, so don't take it personal... just take it I will not discredit the ranger class, but I personally feel, as many players do on MMO's, many people (not all.. but many) pick the class they think will be the most "OP", "L33t D33ps", "PvPeen King", and all in hopes to coasting to glory on it. In the beginning of CoL, that was exactly what happened. Rangers were king of the hill for damage and the magellans & warriors were left to play rock-paper-tears to see if they could get their spot in the raid. With the latest few patches, the tables have turned. (at least for Mystics. Poor Warriors have been getting the Macaulay Culkin treatment since release. Btw, I am Sheppard and have always been Sheppard) The reason I know Mystics have gotten a little too much love, is those same minded people I mentioned earlier, you know, the ones who only wanna play the flavor of the month, coast to glory EZ-mode class... well they all saw the buffs and re-rolled faster than Snoop Dogg's joint distributor. Now Rangers are outraged because they were used to being the non neglected, the go-to for raids. That's right, pre-release, it was the norm to see a 1 tank, 1 healer, all the rest ranger team composition, with the only exception being maybe 1 Tamer for buff..(Still a ranger) and 1 executioner for buff...maybe. But for the most part, everyone sat on the sideline like the red headed kid with braces and acne at prom, waiting for some girl to ask him to dance. Now That being said, as you can see, I also agree that Mystics have been over buffed, putting them now in the same position Rangers were at release... with no real reason to bring another class except the "support" path ones for their buff... welcome to the grass on other side. I have 1 of every class, all level 45 now, I have only ever really invested in my Sheppard and Gladiator. If there is one thing I know and can rely on from years of playing MMO's, there is one thing you can depend on, a tank and healer will be needed... and the more noobs/bads/whatever you want to call unexperienced or ignorant players to make yourself feel better, the more tanks and heals are needed to keep the group from failing. I do sincerely hope they find an amicable balance between the "DPS" classes, but am Happy that it in no way really heavily impacts the roles I play as I will always just stick to Support roles like Tank and Heals. As an end note... there are 10 Ranger Rage post/topics to about every 1 Warrior post, and Warriors are the ones in the worst state for the "DPS/PvP" paths... not that they aren't/can't be viable, because they are and can... it just requires a much better knowledge of fight mechanics, positioning management, a higher skill, gear, gem, path investment to achieve than the other classes. yet... But from what I have read, those who play warrior tend to approach the request for balance a lot more calmly in hopes of consideration for balancing to their roles. To me, this speaks volumes to they type of people who chose that class.. as well as the other's who chose theirs Well, this will probably get locked because I doubt a civilized, constructive debate concerning class balance can be held without someone going full "Cash me outside, how bow dat"... But It would be good if it could, because we could then use this forum, and our great and wonderful moderators who have a direct line of communication to the Devs to relay the information. Dreaming big... Cheers

    Hey gang, I've compiled from my experience what I think the best-return routines are, both for not-so-super-hardcore-but-still-want-to-compete players and the full on crazies. The guide assumes level above 40 (since this is where the game really starts) with a Guild The minimal viable routine For those with limited time on weekdays (maybe also weekends) but still would like to not be left behind, total time is a bit over an hour per day, takes 3-4 weeks to reach level cap (45). The difference between the minimal and the complete routine would be the amount of gold/talent/gear accumulated and how soon reputation gear can be accessed, in terms of purely levelling there is probably only a ~20% difference. Daily: Use up Stamina in Guild property levelling Life Skill ( <5 minutes ) 3x Goblint Camp ( ~20 minutes ) 20x Trial Quest ( ~20 minutes ) 5x Irritable Elementals ( <10 minutes ) 2x Elemental Leader ( <10 minutes ) Delivery Quest ( <5 minutes ) 2x Reputation Quest ( ~10 minutes ) Weekend: Hard mode Raid Team Raid The complete routine For those who want to maximise gains and progress the fastest, it goes without saying you need to do everything and this list is more focused on the order of how you do it. The 'full' routine can take anywhere from 4 to 12 hours, depending on how the runs go - so there is almost always something to do. Daily: Use up Stamina in treasure chest hunting or life skill on world map Reputation farm to limit ( Priority is Cudina first, then Lunarian ) 2x Reputation Quest 3x Goblint Camp 1x Ancestral Altar 1x Dire Galleon 1x Scar Plains Other dailys (delivery quest, elems, tournament etc) 80x Trial Quest All daily events (demon invasion, protect relic etc) All PvP scenarios Guild Hunt Any incomplete Hard Mode Raids Any incomplete Team Raid Any available map events (BBQ, protect the elems etc) Original post is on the wiki here https://crusadersoflight.info/index.php/Levelling_routine, happy for contributors to discuss and make updates

    Updated time: 3/7/2017 UK time 1:10am Hi guys! These are the locations for all 16 elite monsters that are currently in game. (Thanks so much to KhaiXd, Pit, Gewehr, Myik, BabyJoy, BluSpark, Aoura, Skye for the help ^-^) What's elite monsters? (Don't mix them up with the guild bosses / rulers) Most of these monsters don't have any level shown when u click on them at the first time. After attacking them, you will be asked to join the elite event. (It is recommended that you are in a party of 3-5 players.) Note: The level of the elite monster will appear after you entered the event. (If you encounter an elite monster with a level beside it when you click on it at the first time, there is a chance that it is not a real elite monster..... so far, there is only one fake elite monster in this game, which is 'Ferroc Elite'.. but not all ferroc elites are fake.. so do look carefully ) Spawn time: Random What's the use of the elite monster?

In order to encourage more players to participate in the Faction Hunt event, we have adjusted the HP of the first hunt. To keep Faction Hunt balanced, small adjustments have been made to the HP of Bakan the Executioner and the Lava Hound. When heroes kill a Faction Hunt leader, it may drop Titan Relics containing enormous energy. Heroes that have acquired Titan Relics get a huge boost to their PvP capability. Two Titan Relics have been added, as described below: Titanic Edge - Increases PvP damage by 50% Titanic Grip - 25% chance to stun with normal attacks in PvP Heroes with these effects will have a special appearance. This visual effect will only display in PvP Environments. When a character with these effects dies, they will lose these effects, and the corresponding Titan Relic(s) will be lost to them. When the Titan Relics are dropped, they will be marked on the map, and collectable by any Hero. Once a Titan Relic is dropped, it will stay on the ground until someone picks it up, or for 1 week otherwise. Titan Relics claimed in PvP will remain in the player's inventory until dropped on death.

Item drop/reward messages for cross-server battles will no longer be sent separately for each item, and instead will be combined into one message which will be sent when the player returns to their original server. Guild member faction affiliation is now visible on the Guild Info and Guild Member List pages. Players following a team leader will follow said leader into cross-server preparation zones and stay together (Glorious Championship and Final Challenge). Silver can now be used to pay for the Dragon in PvP environments. In light of player feedback, the Turbo Shop Magellana Emblem, Frost Heart, Blood of Titanus, Flowers of Torannis sale schedules have been adjusted to the server's Foundry.

    imho , they keep making the game harder and harder for new players. I kinda like the idea of legendaries being semi hard to get as u want it to stay "rare" in a sense and not so easy. But , its so unfair to new players. Those people that purchased so many blueprints so cheap and had time to wait to store up alt meldals to use em. Now for new players they can expect uber scaling of mobs 46+ // hard to find bps // nightmare @gylfi lol // harder mystica now (some had chance to enter when all players were 45ish and got higher gear easier) // and more.. i understand that, admin says "once u hit 55 everything should balance" ok sure but the journey getting there??? its not just about cap level.. dont let it feel like hell to get there for newbies. sure its ok the time it takes but they must suffer low cr and low items and lack of legend until then? They know they need to fix these things.. thats why in some other posts they said "wait till everyone is 55 so we can assess the issue better". i mean heck, it be nice for a "new player" to have a way to get atleast ONE legendary "NON-weapon" to feel happy and ok" but dang haha. i have a clannie that he played since 5-6month ago and still has no legendary lol.. But tbh legendary is not that big of issue to have now as the lvl items from mystica and 55 are pretty strong to match a low level legend. lets just wait for server to hit 55 and them to see how player base looks for new players.. if new players keep leaving they will know that they need to change things up for new players. simple as that.... dont let the gap of old / new player so big, its so discouraging to go mine crystal and get one shot by a 60k rating. and u are what 25k average new player rating? after few week. i know one game that the gap of old vs new player IS SOOOO huge that the game died out LOL.. its actually a known game.. the game is just run by "old" rich players that have kept the game going...(new players see it impossible to catch up to a year + to get what max players have so end up leaving) but not all games have this fate... Note to developers: The game currently is in a trial stage. sure. but please be careful and think so much about new players as they will be the life of the game. in creating content dont keep making content high level player friendly only and buffing old players even more and leave new player in the dust. Game is not in a critical place now but be careful on future game design in this sense. right now u have ppl with legend around 320 grade all happy and dandy pking noobies.. man...... and high gems etc.. but new players what? gonna have to wait some weeks / even month to get gem and even harder now to get legend.... so yea guys, with new content BALANCE / make it fair on new players... keep this in mind..

    Was really hoping to see some nice changes here. Even with fang being about the only viable option there’s not much point in bugging the team anymore since rangers just saw a 30% increase in over all damage. This is downright depressing and makes me want to quit. And hell even switching to tank is almost pointless, give it a month and paladins will be able to tank everying anyways. The one buff we did get, the horn...it’s not even available yet and won’t be for quite some time. Thanks for listening to our concerns....

    I suggest you to take the server down before you do more damage!

    Hi NetEase, Thank you for creating a great game but unfortunately you have gotten too money hungry and I think you're shifting to a bad state. There has been so much feedback into what the player base needs so that the game can survive. It feels like you don't care. It is great to see that RedPanda is very active in the forum but you guys are making his job extremely difficult. In fact I feel sorry for the guy because he listens to all our complaints and feedback but nothing is ever done about it. This is actually demoralizing and it seems this has effected a lot of players. Every update is all about a new goblin package. In fact the new goblin packages are terrible.... these chests are just more gambling and RNG. I've been holding onto a $100 gift card for over a month now because non of the packages are actually appealing. I think a meeting is needed so your company can rethink the future of this community. This is not an attack on NetEase because attacks get you no-where. This is purely a perspective of a customer. P.S. Thank you @RedPanda for your increasing activity within the forum. I just wish it wasn't for nothing.

    So, having supported this company since I started playing (by paying for crystals just to play lucky draw, not to gain anything as it's only a visual effect) I have decided to, as well as a large number of my guild and fellow server members to stop playing for a while. There are a number of easily fixed issues that the developers are failing to address or their community support person is failing to deliver. 1. The strength of mystics. This is bugging a lot of people and I highly doubt it will ever be corrected. If it is, removing their damage won't fix anything, you would have to make severe upgrades to rangers and slight ones to warriors. Otherwise you will have one messed up competition for that 400k prize with teams running OP mystics. 2. The inability to code in a simple if, else statement relating to the chat textbox disengaging hotkeys. This is highly annoying, something that should have been addressed long ago. 3. The optimization of the PC port is still highly poor. Your coding team should know better. I could go into detail but honestly, even an intermediate coder can tell you what's been done wrong. 4. Too many restrictions. I have never seen a game where it locks you out of everything daily. You have an option not to do this and several ways to stop the whiners who think it's not fair (this makes no sense because you choose how long you play, noone forces you not to or to) by making the gains smaller after X amount of runs, then smaller after another X amount etc. 5. The RNG is absolutely terribly for refining. Gaining refinement stones is also completely garbage. I watched a dude get about 400 stones in the space of 5 minutes the other day and I have not gotten more than the basic 10 or so each day for a very long time. Only to slowly save 20 and just get crap rolls on already crap equips. 6. The effects of item sets do ranger scouts nothing whatsoever. That is probably the least thought of path and class in the game. 7. PvP here is a joke. Stuns are guaranteed as is chain pulling. Evasion rates are the same for all classes unless your level over 9000 for a ranger and have 2 billion % dodge and evason. All you have to do is noob, I mean, stun over and over and theres no way a ranger can win in a properly fought fight against an adversary of a seperate class in a non AI assisted fight. 8. It's been said already, and I will say it again, just like a huge chunk of your player base. Boosting mystics for NO reason was the single most stupid, unintelligent thing I have ever, ever seen from a gaming company and I have witnessed some wild things before. As a programmer of several successful games and two about to be released within the on coming months I have to say, I have learnt from your massive stuff up what NOT to do. Listening to the community is the ideal path. If the people who play the game say it'snot right, then it's not right. Just because you have a few elitist Mystic supporters running around the game, acting all pro now and posting in the forums knowing that barely anyone from the game really posts here, and being recognized as a large part of the community does not do this game any justice. All they have achieved is slowing down proper class and skill balancing that is in serious need for mostly Rangers, to be upskilled in terms of damage, item sets for scouts, dodging attacks, defense increase, damage output and crit. Warriors also need some work while mystics, well, since you have a competition up you cant NERF them, you can only bring the other 2 classes up to meet or excel that class, just to see how funny it is when the game is on the backfoot on their side. So with that said and done, good luck @RedPanda and hopefully this game is a lot better in the coming weeks so that those of who that have decided to leave, around 40 will come back to our server and continue playing what started out to be a really hopeful game.

    I have been playing since Android release, and even though us Android users started one week later, I am the Nr. 4 Mystic on my server. Of course this doesn't say much, and my knowledge is still limited, but here are some tips and tricks for those that are struggling. First, a two part statement. First of all, your character score (Assessment) is not everything. Yes, you can show off on the ladder and compete with that one dude on and off, but Assessment is just assessment; the games way of calculating how much power you have. You should never choose gear/rerolls just because you see a little green arrow. Read the stats carefully and make an informed choice. That being said, Assessment is a fair way of judging someones general power. What this means is that someone with 30k power will almost always DPS/heal/survive better (given equal player skill) compared to someone with 20k power. However around a 1~5k difference, it all boils down to how well the player is performing. In short, you should aim to get a higher character score but it should not mean the be-all and end-all measurement of your characters worth (Also as the old saying goes, a dead DPS is no DPS. So learn your raids!) -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Now that's out of the way, let us begin. We'll start by a brief explanation of two different values; Item Grade and Item Quality. Item grade: You can think of this as Item level from WoW. For those unfamiliar, this determines the range of available stats. An item with 160 grade can roll in the 10-20 STR bracket, however an item with 200 grade can roll in the 15-30 STR bracket (numbers are made up). However, this is actually further determined by Quality. Item Quality: Available from SS-S-A-B-C (best to worst). This determines whether the stat bracket will be on the high end or low end. For instance, a 160 grade item with SS quality will always roll between 18-20 STR, while S quality will roll between 16-18. Again the numbers are not representative (It may very well be that S quality can reach 20 STR, but it may be very rare. This is an assumption). So you can have a 160 grade SS quality item with 20 STR roll, and this may even be better vs a 200 grade A quality item with 19 STR. Assessment is the games calculation of the all available stat bonuses on a given piece. Higher assessment raises your characters assessment. Note that this is only an estimation by the game. I have had occurrences where the item with lower assessment was actually better for me. So, how can we increase those numbers and hit the juicy 30K+ scores? Get better gear. Not only better gear, get gear with higher item grade and item quality. I recommend never to waste reforging the stats on sub-level 40 epics. Save them all, as you will need a lot to reforge your better and/or legendary gear (One exception would be set pieces when it comes to rerolling. You can reroll them as level 30-35-38, since the bonuses are very relevant when you are still gearing up). In addition, do not bother rerolling B-C grade epics. You will eventually get an SS-S-A grade epic, so save them. Get level 40 gems in all of your sockets (your accessorry will most likely be lower level for a while, which will not allow level 40 gems to be socketed. Check the item). These gems should be all blue (rare) quality. This should be your #1 priority when spending your silver. Recommended gem purchase order: Attack or magic attack for weapons, off-hand, necklace (if available) >> HP gems (so you do not get oneshot by unavoidable mechanics) >> Magic def gems if you do not PvP >> Defense gems (Defense gems are higher on the list if you are a PvE tank). Recommended gem rarity order: Get the highest quality ones you can afford for offensive gems. Rare level 40 gems cost 1.6m silver, epics cost 9.6m silver, diamonds cost 57.6m silver + 40k gold. Note about diamond gems: Do not sell your level 20 attack gems! You can make a diamond grade level 20 gem a lot cheaper compared to a level 40 diamond gem, and they can still give you up to 2.5% crit or penetration! Amazing stats for 1/4th of the cost. (If you do end up selling them, don't worry - you did not lose anything. The sellback price is the same as the purchase price) Level your main path. The agreed consensus is that your main path should be level 35 by the time you hit level 45. Stop leveling either at 40 (100% xp bonus) or 43 (50% xp bonus, but has access to better gear and more reputation schools) and reach path 35 first. Level your runes. Once they reach level 25-30, it takes a lot of essences to level them up. You can level runes that you won't even use and level them up to 10-15 by the same amount that it takes to up from 30 to 31. You will get an HP bonus for each rune you level. It may be small, but it all adds up! Participate in guild (boss) hunts. These give you tokens which can benefit permanent bonuses to your stats such as HP, Mana, Def, ATK. Do achievements. Many people overlook this, but achievement points actually give you permanent stat bonuses! Spend some time in the menu and try to complete the ones that are easy to do so (eg. gift 10 items). The "kill 10000 of X mobs" can and should be done in auto mode. Just set your character in a nice place before you sleep, and you should get about 4k-8k kills overnight.

    In Reavedge Village, many ppl complain the clone ppl ruin the game since weeks ago, hundreds message were sent to elf with screenshot, name and character ID, however, nothing happen. Those clone ppl won all the battle, took all the 1st kill and kept using clone until now. so I decided if NetEase doesn’t care Reavedge Village, I will release the method to everyone for how to clone. Yes, everyone can learn after this week reset if no consequence for clone. lets meet again at Thursday 05/07/2018.

    Hello everyone, I started playing this game little over 6 months ago , When things were cool grind was acceptable and to me feels like fair to play. Now i feel like its a huge disappointment just because everyweek and every content involves more and more pay to win content to this game. I wish they sell only cosmetic items with minimal bonus n stuff in order to keep the balance. Sadly this is not a thing we can talk about it anymore. Here we go this week there's going to be a MOL at Lucky Draw and many other things for star circle( These are seriously important items for balance ). On the other hand now there's a thing called Diamond Chests contains gracious mega box which is free legendary inside it. There's a large amount of people who plays this game free to play and mayb if they like too much paying $10 between $50 which was fine but not anymore because no matter how much u grind as a really good player even if you're the best on your class. If you dont have $10,000 to pay for this game. You dont feel like you own something. More you give a chance more you lose eventually , Its really hard to stand against that much p2w content anymore. Here's an example ; When i was at 65k CR people around me was like 70-75k non p2w or small payment accounts . When i try to grind for 70k which is not happening , i'm still at 69k and i'm doing every single dungeon or what matters in this game so far Whoever was at 75k today they almost passed 100k. There's no point how matter you grind its just literally impossible to catch up or competetive with p2w characters in this game anymore. Which is sucks and eventually people will notice that grinding pointless and quit this game aftera all , if you dont feel achieving something in game. its simply pointless to play it anymore. Many friends quit for this unbalanced over powered p2w content. Seems like end of the road really close to me. I started this game with huge potential and hype. Now all im seeing is a company who wants to robb everysingle player who plays this game. what is left its just unncessary for long run this game will be like any other p2w game in the market this just feels sad for such a nice and huge potential game going to be a huge waste... I hope DEV's and company consider this topic as a warning to keep their costumers and players . I hope they will make it more fair for everyone else. Otherwise its just huge disappointment.

    I will admit I have spent my fair share of hard earned cash on my toons. Whats a real kicker is how Netease must use an algorithm to track players spending and thats how we get the pop up goblin merchants with offers. On one of my toons Ive spent a pretty penny, mostly on crystals that I use to sell for gold and the pop up goblin merchants I get are for items 19.99 and up. On my other “filler toons”, classes Ive tried and didnt care for, but will log them in to use to fill Trials groups, the pop up goblin merchants they get are all .99 to 9.99 and an occasiional 19.99. Now heres the kicker, the toons that I spend ZERO money on get “GOLDEN GOBLIN” offers! 10 Lucky Draws for .99, or 5 lucky draws and 10,000 gold for .99. They also get Golden Goblin offers two to three times a day, yet my toon that Ive been way more generous with spending, never gets these kinds of offers. So what gives, Netease? Why troll us only with high dollar offers because weve spent money before but shaft us on other great deals that we would be intrested in getting? Is this just a bait and hook for people who dont spend as much? @Ocho and @TinyDragon can you at least explain why people who have helped pad the coiffers at Netease with money get shafted on additional offers that arent such an impact on the wallet? My main toon has to pay 432 crystals for 10 Lucky Draw tickets in the item shop and these are at a reduced price. The cost to cover 432 crystals in the top up offer is 49.99 and you get 574 crystals. My alt pays .99 for 10 Lucky Draw tickets with the Golden Goblin offer. I might have been born in the day, but it wasnt yesterday.

Im shocked by the fact that your partnered with blizzard and have such a disgusting management team that can't even respond months later even though there active everyday on the forums. Aka @RedPanda Aka @Ocho Care to take the time to explain how you supposedly have 15k staff and can't reply or the fact your 2017 3Q Financial Results state. Online game services net revenues were RMB8.1 billion (US$1.2 billion), an increase of 23.5% compared with the third quarter of 2016. - Advertising services net revenues were RMB631.4 million (US$94.9 million), an increase of 12.1% compared with the third quarter of 2016. - E-mail, e-commerce and others net revenues were RMB3.7 billion (US$561.3 million), an increase of 79.5% compared with the third quarter of 2016.

    * Poor execution of compensation * Botched "Up Dates" rendering some devices "No longer compatible" or no longer downloadable product * Non responsive "Support Team and Forum Mods * Game mechanics made impossible or excrutiating to perform tasks or upgrade items etc... * Little information of ingame features/mechanics etc... Nah, I don't think the game is dying. I believe its dead.

    When the game was released globally, and a lot of people were disappointed at the amount of servers and predicted correctly that they have been split too much and that our servers were going to be dead, NetEase said they would be watching player bases and that they would keep us updated about possible server merges. So my question is, are server merges going to happen? A lot of the servers are dead, other than the first EU server and NA East. There's no reason for NA West to have two servers, and the second server has pretty much caught up to the first. It would be logical to merge them. I don't see why there's two oceanic servers when there's such a small playerbase. You're only making it harder for people to find great guilds, groups and friends. I can't speak on behalf of all servers, but the Thundercall Forest server is slowly dying. Playing in a dead and boring server isn't fun and it's pushing players away who are getting bored of it. It's not fun to take over twenty minutes to form a group for trials and over an hour to form a PUG for a hero raid. New players are never going to be able to find groups for anything. Server merges were common in the Chinese version of the game and reinvigorated current player bases. If a server merge isn't going to be announced any time soon, most of my server will have quit by the time of the end of the $400k cash competition. Please, NetEase, let your loyal players know about your future plans for current servers before it's too late.

    The newest update for extra damage when target's HP is below 20% for Starblade Volley was great and was needed to dust the cobwebs off the move. However, there are issues that need to still be worked. With Starblades Volley 8 Second Cooldown, combined with Starblade, the right talent tree ( at my current path tree level 38 ) decreaces its cooldown by 7.6. Having 2 charges of Starblade Volley, I can spam this move endlessly with no cooldown. And with its weak damage without the target being under 20%, its only then when it should be used. Therefore, we can spam this move when boss is below %20 hp, like a Kill Shot if you will, which is what I feel the team was going for. The Damage still isn't that great, but acceptable if target is 20% as a move to be spammed. I do think it should be able to be used while casting though. The biggest issue though brings us to the top talent on the right of the Scout Path , Rules of the Forest. It is COMPLETELY USELESS. There is no point in having a move crit to reset a Starblade Volley cooldown... if there's never a cooldown on it with having the Starblade ( most right talent on path ) leveled up. In all, rework needs to still be done. I suggest making Starblade Volley ONLY usable when the target is 20% hp, as that's the only time it should ever be being used. As for the top talent Rules of the Forest, I'd suggest in it increasing the CRIT rate of Starblade Volley, per level increased respectively. Thanks for reading. Travels / Ranger / Scout

    Im having issues accepting this because I know it was intentionally done, but most of all my biggest concern would have to be that you refuse to listen your player base when they discuss how broken and op the magellena path has become yet you only continue in your efforts to strengthen them while rendering scouts and other classes as useless. I don't appreciate the dishonesty and unwillingness to hear us out and tbh I'm really having deep regrets about even playing this game still after being sht on over and over again which is a shame because I used to really love this game.

    UI Improvements You can now see Path levels in the team up UI. Out of Treasure Hunt Lucky Ticket draws? Now you'll receive a prompt to purchase them if you want more. Naming Rule Changes There are now new rules for naming your character: Character limit: 3-12 characters English characters and number only You cannot have a name with just numbers No spaces or any special characters are allowed You do not need to capitalize the first letter Capital letters and lowercase won't be distinguished. For example: airbag, Airbag, AIRBAG, aiRbAg is considered the same name (not 4 different ones) and only one person per server can have it. Dungeons There are now 2 heroic dungeons for players to play each week. Translations More translation issues have been fixed.

    Part 2, Silver, Gold and Medal purchases In this second part I will be telling you what I think is the best way to spend your hard earned currency. Again, due to how the forums work, one cannot edit their own post. Please see the Reddit thread for the most up-to-date information. All the information here is valid as of 2nd of August, 2017. Shop Item Cost Purchase? Why? Gem Store Level 20, 30, 40 gems (normal and rare) 50k-1.6m silver Yes The only reliable way to purchase gems. As far as I can tell, there is no way to upgrade the level of the gems (you can't level up a level 20 gem into a level 30). Since gems can be dismantled for 100% of their original price, feel free to buy and dismantle them once you move to a higher level! Altruism Medal A Pouch of Silver 20 medals No This item nets small amount of silver. Your medals are better spent somewhere else. Altruism Medal Regalian's Magic Stone 100 medals Not recommended Useful item, but honestly unless you are capped with medals & stones, 100 medals is a bit too much for an item you get plenty of by daily activities. Altruism Medal Extract Chest 300 medals Never buy 5 rune essences for 300 medals? Holy scam! Do Elemental dailies if you need essences, 300 is way too overpriced. Altruism Medal Magellena Emblems 500 medals Never buy You can buy these medals for either 200k silver, or 1000 Guild Emblem. Either way is a better option. You also get 2-6 Emblems each week by completing the 30 Guild Quests. Altruism Medal Stones 100 medals YES! The best way to spend your medals is buying Stones. These stones are used in crafting and help increase item stats + chance of forging into epic items. Materials Extract Chest 100k silver Not recommended At the time 100k silver means nothing to you, you probably have a vast collection of essences. If silver is short, do not buy this item. Materials Rune Chest 500k silver NEVER buy Holy scam #2! Seriously, use your silver for making epic gems. Not this. Materials Large Essence Chest 10k gold No 10k gold can be put to better uses. Materials Large Rune Chest 50k gold No 50k gold can be put to better uses. Materials Regalian's Magic Stone 1k gold Depends Depends on if you are swimming in gold or not. Probably not when you get your first epic level 20. Also, never roll sub-35 items. 35-40 epics can be rerolled if they are either set items, or S/A grade epics that rolled badly when you received them. Materials Elf Jewel, Heart of a Demon, The Dragon's Breath 5k, 3k, 2k gold Not recommended Not recommended, as Light of Dawn is a bit of a gimmicky item. If you are far advanced in the game that you can craft multiple Light of Dawns, then go ahead! [Note that all 3 components can be bought from other players, most likely at a cheaper price] Materials Dragon Scale 10k gold Yes If you need this item, you need it for crafting. Other options of buying this are through your faction medals. Honestly, I would save the medals for your PvP gear. So gold is the only true way of buying these. Materials Gollen Cast Iron 10k gold Yes Same as above Materials Gem Grinder 10k gold Yes The only way to buy this item, as far as I know, is with gold. Note that you can also buy this item from other players. Materials Guild Supplies 20k gold Yes and no Do not buy this item to add more supplies to your guild. 20k gold is way too expensive for what you get. Do buy it for the 10 supply achievement when 200k gold is no longer an issue for you. Food and Potion Potions, food 1k - 100k silver Yes Various activities yield food and potions, but you gotta buy them especially if you are an active player. Weekly Specials Magellena Emblems 200k silver Yes! The best way to purchase these is with silver. As written above, make sure to complete your weekly 30 Guild quests before you buy these, as these quests often reward you with multiple Magellana Emblems. Weekly Specials Stones 1k gold Not recommended Sure, 1k gold does not sound a lot. Just remember that you often need multiple stones for crafting. Unless you are out of Altruism Medals, I would not recommend spending gold on Stones. Faction NPC Large potions 20k silver Recommended At the beginning 20k will sound very expensive for potions. Well, it really is. But these are the best ones available at the moment, and HP potions for PvP/raids or Mana potions are very valuable! In summary Gold I suggest using gold to buy blueprints and whatever raw material you cannot get yourself from the Trading House. Once you get to higher end crafting, the costs will become enormous so any amount you save will be welcome. Some items can only be bought with gold, such as Gem Grinders (needed for Diamond level gems). Be wise spending your gold, as it is much harder to find compared so silver. Silver Speaking of silver, I recommend buying a full set of regular level 40 gems first, followed by a full rare set and eventually epic and diamonds. Focus on weapon gems (attack or magic attack) first. After that, I would get HP gems unless you are a tank or PvP a lot. Many boss mechanics will simply one shot you if you don't have enough HP. You will need silver to buy potions and food as well. Luckily the game is fairly generous in giving you silver. Altruism Medals Use them for Stones. The next part will focus on available additional currencies. Currency Use Guild Emblem Magellana Emblems or Leveling gear. You will most likely find better gear throughout the week, however not so many Magellana Emblems. Shadow Crystals Honestly, be patient and get the cosmetic rewards or the mount. I'm not sure whether they will become unobtainable once the Light vs Dark event ends. If anyone knows for sure let me know and I'll edit this! Sakura Badge Trust me on this one, don't start buying the Giftboxes. It's a drug and you will feel really bad for wasting crystals on them. Unless we can get Giftboxes from events, if you happen to have any Badges lying around use 3 for the small box and call it a day. Faction medallions Not recommended to buy Dragon Scale or Gollen Cast Iron. Unless these medallions will disappear when the event ends (confirmation needed), save them for the exotic sets. Courage medal You get a 1-3 of these each day for playing the game. Save them for the higher rank rewards with various Reputations. Leaf of Eternity These babies go for 25-50k gold on my server. The prices will either rise or fall; not many people are high enough level & rich enough to buy 30 of them yet. Once they do, price may rise. Or it may go down due to high supply. Only time will tell. I would suggest selling this in the weekend for gold, but don't come blaming me if the prices rise. Legendary Essence Honestly I'm nowhere near the level to use this item. There is only one on our server and is being sold for 500k gold. Let me know what it's for! Honor points All I can find is gear on Faction NPC's for 20k honor pts (rank Major Lieutenant and up). If anyone knows other NPC's, please share! Flower of Torannis I got one of these from a heroic raid. As far I remember, 10 of them are needed for exotic gear! Check the reddit thread for user submitted tips! If you have anything you'd like to add, let it know down below. In my next guide I will write the available goblin deals, and which of them are the best. If you plan to buy crystals, you really should be doing it with the time-limited goblin deals. I will need some more time to gather all the available options, so feel free to send me a PM with whatever options you get (For instance; 20$ option includes items XYZ vs ABC). I can add this to the available options!

Other Changes The number of Treasure Chests that players can open in the Ancient Ruins has been adjusted from 2 to 3 Bug Fixes Fixed an issue with adds summoned by Gwarghent in Goblin Camp may get stuck. Fixed a few questions in the Guild Quiz that had the wrong answer. Fixed an issue where World Bosses were sometimes unable to attack targets normally. Fixed the Mystic’s Mara's Judgment's sub-talent "Intensity" was not compatible with the rune "Phantom". Now when Phantom is triggered, Intensity's damage bonus will be triggered normally. Launch could not be cast after Pulrik uses Anvil Drop, and the Goddess Mara could be repeatedly summoned by the same Mara Sigil in phase III. An adjustment has been to solve the issue of Raid Auctions sometimes ending prematurely under certain circumstances. You will receive a system message when your Gold is returned. Thanks, The CoL Team

    Hey folks, We certainly understand the concerns voiced in this thread, and we made our decisions regarding total number of servers with these very concerns in mind. Having a healthy population (not too big so there are queues, not too small so people have a hard time finding groups) is very much on our minds in creating this list. Populations have been deliberately kept small for the soft launch so far, but on Global Launch we'll be casting our nets much wider to bring in more players for you to play with. By staggering the launch of servers we've built in some flexibility as well, and can adjust as needed. We absolutely don't want servers with low populations, and will make sure this doesn't happen on launch. Thanks, Ocho

    netease please reconsider. having too many servers will spread the game community thin. thr game experience relies heavily on big population for all 40 man battlefielf and raids and world pvp. having so many server with small populations will be very very bad. its also extra bad since ppl can't change server and if one server dies the remaining players there will have no choice but to quit the game since they wont find a team for anything......
