    When will the devs fix the gear imbalance especially in pvp? An equalization feature would help or something along those lines like providing softcap gear that works in pvp only or even more free softcap gear event this time not locked for level 60s and up. The amount of time and effort it takes to catch up to players that have been playing since years ago is quite vast to the point where if you're not softcap and lvl 60+ you are basically at a major advantage. Fix pvp gear gap maybe fix the reknown score giving massive bonuses at higher ap and instead covert the ap at higher end to the lower end instead. So it's not just gear carried apes who mash buttons with their face and still manage to be putting out "good" gameplay just because they are majorly geared whether that is through playing for years or just being outright p2w.

    while at it, give everyone free pearls too...atleast 100k each


    just so you know: its alot easier to get 540 gs now than it was back then when WE had to get it. You basically have to work only 50% of what we worked to get to the same point.... so let us enjoy the fruits of our work for god sake. I agree it's not a very good mentality cuz it denies new people joining the game..but that's the game's fault,,,,not ours... WE DID OUR TIME!



    Instead of ****ing with the progress of those older players that had to put in hours of hard work.... just to make it a lil better for the new players..... Instead of that, why not just group players in by gearscore or so, have battle grounds that restrict that, nodewars that restrict that somehow.... so weak fights weak and strong fights strong

    ap scaling above softcap is just too high. that is the root of all problems in this game


    also, if anyone thinks getting 60 is the problem, they are playing the wrong game. its not bashing, it is cold truth.

    each new player that gets turned away could be a dedicated player lost

    which means bdo may just die in the long run just from being very non new player friendly

    which means less players and less money for them

    what they could do is make a pvp only set that gives you pretty decent gear for pvp but it's not "the best" so really geared players would still keep their advantage that they "worked" for but also make it a lot more balanced in general for non geared players

    even with equalized for example you would still have level and probably sp advantage so you still "worked" for something and retained it

    when rng makes you fail 7 times before you get your first tri bis accessory (not a crescent), and then proceeds to buttsex you on few next ones, you simply cant make the deadline. :D :D :D

    Another "give us soft cap gear" thread lol.
    Why would you even want to play the game anymore if you just get everything on a silver plate with minimum effort?

    Agree the renown score is a problem and probablly the biggest one that make you "new players" to have problems against veterans. The problem could be very easily solved just with a simple revert on the stats giving higher bonuses at low lvl and viceversa. Wasnt that the renown score purpose from the beginning? help the new players to catch up with the older ones? Thats devs fault indeed but asking for soft cap gear and etc is just lame af in a korean mmorpg.

    no, you just have to stop complaining and keep trying. eventually it'll go. Everyone will be lucky and will be unlucky.
    I used over 6 bil to get my urugons to tet, but only needed around 50mil to get my dim to it. It will even out eventually.

    it should not take 5-6 months assuming you have rng to have the starter pack to even start pvping aka gear

    i gave multiple suggestions

    one was to equalize it so it's more about >skill< than gear

    one was they fix the reknown problem

    No, they explicitly stated that the aim of renown score is to enhance the effect of gear progression even more. Exponentially, which is in line with how exponentially harder it becomes to upgrade, the higher gear level you go.

    i mean does it really seem like a good newer player experience when you have to struggle for more than 6 months before even starting out pvp then once you get some gear you're still vs people with pens/tets and they probably got even more gear in the time you spent catching up

    Your statement is correct but incomplete.
    As you can see from the red mark you ignore one of the reasons of the renown score is also to help rokies too!! As they said with their very words.
