    Umm... Were the caphras stones nerfed or does it still require 10k for a safe pen armor and 15k for weapons? Did it got increased drop rate or is it still ~7 drops per hour in our maps? Dreighan was said to drop more but we don't got that...at least they are adding them now and not with dreigan next year. Welp, it is a good system to skip rng. +1 Meanwhile, though, rng drains money and effort...fun~

    What less RNG. Next patch will ensure there is less RNG.

    You take
    • unlimited cron stones
    • set chance for enhancement success
    • [​IMG]
    • strong law of large numbers

    and then said law will make sure your enhancement probability will converge towards 100%. I don't see the issue, swipe your credit card now.

    I know right? In the threads I read the past 3 days, the white knights were like:

    -Don't upgrade, stay on softcap tet since the difference is little to full pen. If you die it's because you suck and not fighting an op class or pimped char.
    -You are not obligated to pvp. Stay life-skilling or crafting inside your house. This is not a pvp game.
    -You can buy Cron stones for 1 million from an npc, why would you need to melt costumes for 20+stones? You can farm that in 45 minutes at gahaz.
    -You can farm trillions of silver doing SMH which can get you pens too. Why waste real money? Pfft! No boat? Pay a hacker guild.
    -Calphras stones are awesome! Who cares if you have to farm/snipe them for almost a year to safely upgrade a single item. It's a free pen!
    -Nobody would spend thousands of dollars for an expensive attempt that might fail, but it's okay if they do because the server receives money.
    -The game is not p2w, but if it were, it's also fine. You can get everything in-game with silver so why are people crying? Enjoy the graphics, jesh.
    -How dare you complain because the game has problems and something appears bad? See the positive side: we can melt that costume we hate.
    -You crying babies...this forum is to praise the game only. Gtfo! The game is better off without the rats that can't accept having a finger up their arses.
    -You attacked a DEV! Go uninstall and kill yourself.
    -You have to think like me and adapt to these changes. Why would you complain if someone can get top gear in a day when nobody else could in 3 years?

    I have to agree.

    Western MMOs = a cosmetic marketing strategy.
    Eastern MMOs = a P2W marketing strategy with casino elements.

    Western MMOs = account bound items.
    Eastern MMOs = character bound items.

    I could go on, but I will not.

    i would go as far as saying that ffxiv is a western mmo because it doesn't employ any scummy scam tactics to bleed its players dry

    Sadly the GM team for NA/EU of XIV leaves alot to be desired. They tend to cherry pick, ban the wrong players, let players who constantly break rules ingame and on forum go unpunished, never gives any reason why they suspend you when asked, and would even ban your actual ingame account, if you get reported for using swear words and suspended for it, more than 2 times, yes, they would actually perma ban your account you may have spent over 3000 hours on or more, just for saying something like "****" and get suspended twice for it, they will perma ban you the third time, all cuz some troll who pretended his feelings were hurt, reported it.

    Of course it also backfires too, their are players who reported legitimately bad things going on in the forum, only for that person to go unpunished, while the person who reported instead gets suspended for "Crying Wolf".

    Its gotten so bad that no one will talk about parses at all, no one will argue, no one will curse, no one will even use shout chat, period, and everyone talks only to players they know, and when they do talk in public, they keep it as low key and short as possible, out of fear of slipping up, saying something wrong spite its their usual way of talking in the real world, then some troll sends a report about it and then instant suspension.

    Know the reason why alot of people honestly just Abandon the trial or raid after 1 maybe 2 wipes without saying a word? Because they dont wanna argue or yell at, or explain what happened to those who screwed it up, because players have been banned for it, for "Antagonizing" the player, even if the player explaining things was being very polite and courteous about it. Thus they just vote abandon and try again with another group hoping for the best.

    Apparently it wasnt like this at the start of XIV 2.0, but it gradually got worse up to now.

    But no MMO is perfect, each one has critical flaws, XIV Does listen to its audience, but its audience is getting bored with the WoW Copy Pasta vertical progression XIV keeps following, and having a GM team consisting of mostly Upper Middle class Privileged just out of highschool kids who cherry pick and only respond to the report button, not actually moderate, just so they can fill a quota, isnt helping the game any. Its been called out on the forums many times, and each time it does, they let the thread stay open, but they immediately suspend/Ban the OP.

    Its gotten so bad that most players in XIV uses Reddit instead of the official forums now, due to out of nowhere forum suspensions. Hell they even suspended or banned players from the XIV forums for QUOTING someone who happened to have a swear word IN the quote. Its hysterical.

    Just 18 days? Take it easy, it's not sprint, you won't get to endgame in 1 month, probably not even in 1 year, depends how much you wanna spend. Do bosses, gather sharps and hards, grind for money, afk fish overnight for relics, which will yield mf. Cook/do dailies for cp, set up worker empire, you will get good gear by the time. Definitely you shouldn't raging after 2 weeks.

    There's a huge whale on RU, which has full PEN (boss armors, weapons (with offin), basi, ogre, crescents and narc ears).

    Btw. caphras won't make difference in gear, it would if you can't use them on PEN. If you want to make safe enhance to PEN, you will be wasting them. Sure, they will add some AP, but by the time you get lvl20, someone who had PEN today will have almost HEX. And getting 15k caphras.. I would prefer saving them for PEN.

    I would really like to see screens of that, since the latest screens ive seen from kr, na and ru, were all still missing 2-3 accessories. Would be huge if thats really true and on an official Server ofc, not a private one. But then again i hear russians have a whole lot more p2w.

    I think you should stop playing BDO and start playing WOW. A lot easier game to play.
