    breh I can’t even reach full r21 yet and there’s already new armor ffs. Guess they gota keep the ultra whales busy somehow lmao.

  • Begginggeegee says:

    ED fees to personal trades mmhmmmmmmm 5% 10% of the amount or worse?

  • Birb_Brain says:

    “We decided to effectively decrease the arena shards to zero for getting your ass kicked.”

    “Why…?”

    “Cuz it’s a nuisance. Duh. And you’re not putting up a good fight against a Genesis that can melt your HP to 1/3 of its portion with one skill. Git gud.”

  • LmaoPlease says:

    Instead of charging fees and making more payable contents, why not NERF THE STORY QUEST REWARD ???? THE ENTIRE NA SERVER NO ONE LOAD UP ANYMORE EXCEPT FOR 1+1 AND ENHANCEMENT EVENT. EVEN THO THE MINI ENHANCEMENT HAVE THE EXTRACTABLE ITEMS, NO ONE BAT AN EYE. BLACK FRIDAY ? NO ONE BUY. WAKE UP KOG YOU’RE LOSING AN ENTIRE SERVER PROFIT !!!

    • Soren says:

      What drugs have you been on? High ED rewards for Story Quests is good y’know, for the player that is. Get your head out of your KC selling gutter and open your eyes, nerfing story quest ED only serves to punish the average player just so y’all can make a pretty penny.

    • Flare Kyn says:

      I’m sorry, but what is your logic here? I don’t think high ED is a cause for nobody loading up Kching. Even if players are buying Item Mall items from the board or other players, there would still have to be a player buying that item from the Item Mall with Kching. Also, the story already got hit with an ED nerf, but that came with a complete story revamp. If you just nerf story ED without making other changes to that story to justify it, you’re just gonna incite gamer rage.

      • LmaoLmao says:

        Lmao it cause a massive ED inflationary and it’s VERY DANGEROUS !! A +11 before inflat cost 7b, now it’s 11b in 2 months !! How is THAT possible then huh ? Another 3 months and it’s gonna be 20b lmao. And the economy will fk up.

        • Flare Kyn says:

          And nerfing Story ED is gonna fix that how? Also, I don’t think that the Story ED alone is why prices skyrocketed. The amount we can hold is still the same, it’s just a bit easier to farm now.

        • >>zx says:

          lmao this guy need to play INT once so he knows what is ED inflation means

        • Mastema says:

          Amulets inflated because blacksmith got nerfed. Not because story quest gave more ED??? Anything besides Ammys stayed pretty much the same price: IBs, Accessories, Pets

        • dongshinlee says:

          nerfing story ED is ok but buff other way to make ed like henir or something due to ed revamp no one selling drop item and just go to ed farm for quick raw ed

          but u forget irl problem that cause less ppl to load,, i hear in INT no one sell kching anymore

          and +11 amulet is 16b(?)

          in korea itself its not that huge different due ppl have better farm like pc bang buff(2x drop unlimited stamina) and it doesnt make ed inflation there,, actually amulet price is cheaper for random reason

          • Flare Kyn says:

            Speaking of Henir, the heck is with El’s Aspiration in Henir?! Her stats are way too freaking high! Like, I can handle most of the bosses in Challenge Mode, but she freaking one-hit kills me!

          • Legendary Craftsman says:

            yes INT Market suck now, no one item mall price in ED so expensive, coz INT to much F2P player

        • trinityfang says:

          The price increase was due to kog fixing a kching exploit that allowed bots to get more when loading up by switching currencies through vpn. now all the bots farm story to keep up thus increasing prices.

      • Legendary Craftsman says:

        Bro the problem MA Price increase because it’s more difficult to get +9 & +10, that make +11 price increase to

    • oop says:

      I don’t think nerfing ED gain is going to make anything better. That’s going to make things worse for free-to-play players. The more that it’s “free-to-play”, the more people will invest in the game.

  • Rajesh says:

    Ah yes, another armor, sorry R21 owners! Your armor’s getting replaced by something better.

  • Noir says:

    If they’re gonna release a new armor i hope somewhere down the line rigo gets the bank share treatment too, if not it would end up being a such massive waste of resources tbh. I would also like for Void weap to be bank shareable since i have my +11 weap pilling up dust in my personal bank and can’t give to an alt since i got my raid weap, but i have no hope for this one….

  • Furerum says:

    New armor huh.
    I’ve stopped farming dailies and heavy reforging cuz i had a hunch that they would release one soon.
    I wanna have hope, that out reforges are going to be still useful for these new armors… like transfering? or evolving the sets? (like SD sets years ago)?… im being too hopeful?… yeah probably a lil too much

    • fal says:

      always keep the hope even when they always fail to satisfy it in some scenarios.

      always keep the hope but keep your expectations low, so you never get dissapointed and you might be even amazed by the content.

  • fal says:

    of course is a new equipment, after the nerfwave they almost always come.
    sigh, we know a new equipment will always come and the moment they said new area we kinda knew when they will come. but i had hope that it would be some kind of boost to them like mystic to weapons.

    adding fees to vvip huh? i guess i wont need to buy them anymore.
    adding fees to personal trades? if it is anywhere close to 10% then i will just sell my stuff in board.
    the other board, trade and pvp features looks good.

    64 bit client, yes! thanks, i hope the game is more fluid this way. althought this update is overshadowed by the other “bad stuff”.

  • xD says:

    Then we are getting some revamps for rigomor like:
    -bankshare
    -cost reduce
    -better chance to reforge
    Kinda trashy quest for new gear, until they make it easier
    And the weeb dude like “NOOOOO KOG, RESPECT TO VETERAN PLAYERS, I NEED MUH PRESTIGE & FLEX I QUITTT!!!111”

  • ale says:

    Just 64, no new engine? ED fee on trade? bury the game already!

  • Dandy says:

    Yeah… Guess I can’t keep up with this game anymore.

    My F2P ass is still stuck with Void weap plus Elianod, because I couldn’t get my Rosso past +9 after all this time, and reforging Rigomor has cost a kidney and a half (stupid seed prices never drop) just to be powercrept already. Holy cow.

    But it’s alright tho… Maybe I’ll change my mindset and play more casually from now on. Login every once in a while, play only the easier DGs or story mode, help new players, help alts from friends, win some PvPs against some random whales. Just 0% stress stuff.

    Hakuna Matata to y’all.

    • Jade Anemon says:

      Bruh, my thoughts exactly. I’m also stuck with Void and Elrian, my CP is just pitiful, I can’t even play the 1st dungeon in Pruinaum without dying like 20 times… I wish we could at least transfer stats from Void to FoJ.

      • Samii says:

        That’s a you problem.
        I’m f2p and I have multiple characters with good gear.
        Know how to get stronger without spending??? Literally make alts to farm ED. It’s not even hard, just make Prime operators to farm story mode lol you can have ED gain alts and farm secret dungeon for like a million a run and barrier fragments to sell.
        Save all your ED, buy mithril and fluorite before enhancement events(saves money) and enhance. There’s weekly enhance items you can save for a while. Save for costumes and accessories.
        Farm Rosso raid, even if it’s story mode, you’ll get FoJ in due time.
        Literally, you can get somewhere if you stop being lazy af. Stop using “I’m f2p” as an excuse.
        And before you decide to come at me:
        1. Am I defending KOG? Heck no, company is flawed af and greedy.
        2. Should things be changed? Yes personally
        3. Is it impossible to get anywhere without money? No.

        But overall, y’all need to stop complaining and put in the work. It’s an MMO, you should know that MMOs require grinding. Either quit the game or suck it uo and grind. It’s that simple.

        • Ysvan says:

          It’s not always because all people are lazy and want everything in an instant. It’s because all your effort spent on the game will never surpass someone rich who just put a pile of money into the game and has already managed to outrun you in a few weeks, something that for someone who plays F2P would take months. It’s exhausting to see a game you’ve been playing for years because you like the characters, combos and skills, being so greedy and separating the players that way. Grinding can be good, but when it gets to the point where you spend months trying to achieve something that someone rich could easily get, it ruins people’s desire to continue at getting better in the game.

        • Dandy says:

          Well, I can say (at least in my case) that I’ve been a hardcore player for years now. Farming like a dog nonstop through a huge chunk of my free time. So I have confidence that I’m not lazy when it comes to MMOs and their life-draining requirements for F2P players to keep up with whales.

          It’s just that I’m tired and need to stop stressing over this unhealthy game. That’s all.

    • Earlygame says:

      Yes, casual players >>>>>>>> “I’m quitting this gaem 4ever” *comes back in 1 month* *keeps whining on babel* *repeats*

    • dongshinlee says:

      dont worry dude they will give free +8 r6 100% reforge durability and +9 foj and some good rewards

  • Zeal says:

    they will be adding tax in VIP and trade system? talked about a complete Corruption, KoG

  • Xamy says:

    Please make the new gear PvE only
    and improve PvP thank u

  • Twi says:

    So…if my guesstimations are correct:

    -A new town that should have come out years ago
    -New power creeping armor that is just another way to get whales to pay for enhancements
    -New dungeon that will be inaccessible to the majority of players, since most people still can’t access Outskirts
    -Placebo levels of reforge rng increase that won’t matter in the long run

    What about this is supposed to be exciting exactly?

    • IBuff says:

      This is endgame content, new players certainly won’t get there right away. I can say that I see a lot of people on the outskirts. Therefore, many people have access there.

    • Earlygame says:

      Complaining for the sake of complaining, classic

      • Katja Eclair says:

        Dismissing for the sake of dismissing, classic.

        • Earlygame says:

          People complain for the sake of complaining because this is something that will definitely never change. KR and NA have different ways of thinking, KR wants more grind at the cost of less gameplay while NA despises grinding and would rather get more challenging gameplay. KOG KR will obviously tend to hear the KR community about how something has difficult mechanics and will try to nerf those. I mean is it wrong? Well that’s subjective anyway…

          But I digress. Anyway his Complaint 1 is stupid and you know it. 2 is honestly how every MMORPG goes lol. Should they tone it down? Yes, but they also have to be careful to not piss off the players who bring money to their table and that’s difficult to do. 3 Same as above. And 4 is true, they should’ve nerfed it a bit more.

          On the other hand, why you hate me uwu I thought we were friendos Katja :(

    • Flare Kyn says:

      “Should have come out years ago” Says who? I personally believe the region release windows have actually been somewhat fair. These things aren’t instant, it takes A LOT of time to develop stuff. And considering there was a whole bunch of other content between region releases, the amount of time it took for this new one to come out is actually pretty understandable.
      “New power creeping armor” As I’ve said higher up in these comments, this is standard for MMOs, not just Elsword.
      “New dungeon that will be inaccessible to the majority of players” While true, I don’t think this is as bad as you’re trying to make it out to be. New dungeons had to come out eventually, and something tells me these ones won’t be that much higher in the CP requirements than Outskirts.
      “Placebo levels of reforce rng increase that won’t matter in the long run” Says who? It’s still helpful to those who haven’t reached r21 yet, even if it’s only slightly.

  • KoGBLOK says:

    Stupid movement adding ed fee in personal trade, reforge biggest problem isn’t their low chance / gauge increase but their greedy chlorite seed system.

    Now adding new armor ? Well shit if this have p2p armor like amethyst

  • Soren says:

    Shame that Raven and Ara got pushed back a month… But oh well I look forward to seeing these new changes they seem interesting and above all else they make the haters mad so I like it c:

    • Flare Kyn says:

      Both Raven and Ara were listed in the December through February range. Neither of them were confirmed for December specifically. For all we know, they could have always intended for Raven to be in January.

  • G4 says:

    The problem with personal trades having a Tax is pretty much, if you dont have a shared bank, then you are screwed , no more telling a friend to help you trading your ED btw characters because you’re gonna lose millions of ED in the trade anyways

    • Flare Kyn says:

      Tbh, I think it was a mistake taking away the shared bank quest way back when. Like, they can just make it unlock the first row and still sell the unlock items for the later rows.

      • dongshinlee says:

        im sure they delete it due to inflation and change it to be purchaseable via ED 200m

        but only KR while other server is gone, reduce to atoms or buy untradeable that you must load urself

  • MarieWolf_94 says:

    cant wait to see Raven and Ara’s 4th paths. other than that, i dont really care for the rest of the upcoming stuff. i’d rather play single-players or other MMOs where i can actually see progress when i work on my gear and stats and stuff. KOG definitely looks like theyre trying harder to balance things out, but the game is still kinda catered to tryhards and mega whales

  • Samii says:

    Makes me laugh that people cry about new armor every time.
    Bruh, if they stopped updating and bringing new things people would get bored.
    Not saying how they do it is right, but dang man some of y’all have never seen how a MMO works and it shows.

    • Xamy says:

      Stop using the MMO argument all the time, you must be retarded for defending the game this way LOL
      Elsword is literally the most expensive shit ever made, it’s not all about “new armor” but upgrades, chlorites, identification scrolls, hidden power scrolls, dungeons pass, ice burners,
      And you can add cosmetics, job change, el house and other extensions on the top of that lmao
      Also all that ED loss from reforge, glyph system, mystic stones, el collection, synergy and all that stuff you can’t fucking bankshare and is stuck to one of your fucking char ??? like you can’t change or buy the same shit several times xd
      HAVE YOU EVER PLAYED THE GAME ?
      I did everything in F2P, I obviously know what im talking about, this speech comes from heart LMAO
      Elsword lost so much players because it turned excessively greedy, nowadays everyone either quit the game or turn full PvE.
      Jesus Christ we don’t need a new gear yet,especially in a region for 3M CP ++ XDDD.
      Are you full f21 with +13 Berthe full stages already ? No ? So shut the f up next :sob:

      • Flare Kyn says:

        But here’s the thing… we’re not really saying it to defense the game. Yes, they do need to fix that stuff, but some of these guys are complaining that they’re releasing new armor at all, not the fact that it’ll be expensive. Or at the very least, that’s what it looks like. Hell, I still remember BRANCLIFF complaining about Apocalypse Type-Void weapons, with his argument being that it was a better weapon than the LIMITED TIME raid weapons. Like he expected the raid weapons to always be the strongest weapons in the game. No. They never were going to be. By the very nature of MMOs, better gear had to come out eventually. And that’s the kind of stuff we’re using the MMO argument against. Not people complaining that it’s done poorly, but people complaining it’s happening at all.

        • Flare Kyn says:

          to defend* I failed to notice this error as I was editing it.

        • Uhhh says:

          You commented on every post in defense of Kog and against every point (Some warrented bc they’re stupid.) anyone made. Can’t fault anyone for thinking you’re defending them while you’re literally doing so. That said, I think some of yall should be optimistic. Everyones point of view is important, but personally don’t look at someones opinion as a threat just because its different to yours. Even after you type up your own opinion and call them whining children they won’t care about your point of view, its counter productive and a waste of time.

          • Flare Kyn says:

            I’m… confused. I don’t remember defending KoG from every argument I’ve seen, just those I personally thought were bad. There are some pretty valid arguments being made, like how Xamy mentioned how expensive it is to upgrade armor. And looking back on the comment I made, there were actually a few errors I made and didn’t realize until now. For example, I said the “it’s an mmo” argument wasn’t an argument in defense of the game, but actually, yeah, it is actually kind of a defense, it’s just not used to defend against the point Xamy thought we were using it against.

            Also, I’m not arguing against points just because “It’S aN oPiNiOn ThAt DiFfErS fRoM mInE”, I’m arguing against points that I legitimately believe are flawed.
