  1. Hope they fix it soon. Same as last time. Says connecting forwver then error "Could not connect to server"
  2. Seems as though the server has stopped again. Anyone else unable to log on?
  3. My paladin is named the same as my name here. Only thing is i play the EU server. Was just passing through yesterday checking out the whole forum while the update was going on. I figured i would throw in my two cents :-)
  4. Even in the wars with people spamming revives its very easy to counter. I posted already on making a change for the new year. MC are set as non support for the most part where as we elves are made FOR support. Its not hard really. Consider the first part is defense - Paladins, Druids and Few Mages gaurd the flag. BD, Rangers, and priests are the key attackers. A priest in a town to defend is pretty much obsolete considering if you have set your respawn in the town you will poof back in the middle of any attack. However keeping the high dmgers alive on the assault is crucial and key. Running always back across the map eats valuable time for assaulting the flag. Of course mages and paladins and druids make their assault as well but to win those flags it takes teamwork, communication and selfless spirit to do what we the people of the Elf side need to win. Just imo. Until then we will struggle.
  5. First, I want to say I love this game. Over the course of time that I have played I have enjoyed watching it evolve. Its expansive and keeps getting better with every update. I am sure many will of course disagree and argue about balance or unfair treatment, but lets keep it real it always goes both ways. Where there is one complaint from elf to mc of course there is another the opposite way so I will move on to the point - this is our place! More than anything I am a competitive gamer and have been my whole life. This game stole me from the rest of them though and happily so! Lets make a change for the next year - rather than get upset at things lets make the effort to own our place here. Get as active as possible in your guilds, form relationships with your teams and bring out what its all about! Set some goals and give it hell! My personal goal is for top seat paladin on the server and break up the arena dominance AoA attempts to exert on the server. Nothing personal just part of the game and if this reaches them and they want to target me awesome - I welcome the challenge! I just read often how people say they are bored or plan to leave and I know that my every day is a blast! I wish every one luck in their adventures and hope you all have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! See you fellow elfs at the event (and I am sure plenty of you MC as well trying to raid us just make sure you have your lunch packed).
  6. See last line instead of so

  8. Cant Log again. Was running through marakosh and suddenly like last time server connection failed. All other internet works. Is this a system dump again? Thanks.
  9. Maybe they will give us all a care pack for our pain! Just saying that a Puppet Masters Spear would be a real blessing :-)
  10. Paladin us my main account in elf. My two cents are simple and being ling winded I shall carry it on here. First, I dont think 2h is the main set for a Paladin. Shields drop for elf side and really only a Paladin can use them. That shield bonus of 15% to ph and mag resistance are huge and only get bigger as one amps gear. That said, definitely a Paladin without mdmg is as naked as a BD fighting with one sword. Over the time I have been here playing I have learned a great deal on setting up and to ignore a Paladins need for mdmg is never wise. Heal in arena soldily set can become a game changer and turn around any situation. As was already said too are the effective attacks all concentrated on mdmg increase. By increasing mdmg a Paladin effectively increases all the damage he does in quests and arena. A spear is a good weapon but the only one I have seen so far that will get me to give up my shield is of course the new "Puppet Masters Spear" (gz and brilliance to its creator) though it seems to be the most illusive and evading drop for me as I have stormed dungeon 26 without ceasing for some time now. Considering this maybe I could suggest here please the need for a Shield with mdmg increase that flows with like the arena mace I weild now? Its adding would be an awesome addition. Considering Paladins are the most common of tanks in dungeons a shield that plays to their strengths would be a blessing. One cant ignore physical dmg but mdmg I feel will the skill set for paladins is defo the most important and I have been building around that game graphic ever since with great effect. I use Mace and shield of frost atm mostly as its ny highest level weapon and tends to smack in there more effectively but i prefer to run my mdmg much higher. Just imo ;-) thanks for the read!
  11. Man i was wondering! Sucks was just in dungeon with party. Know im dead now o_o friendly ask for mercy on that admin! The dump was crazy - get to wally and move in then Poo! 5 mins and would have been fine. Thanks.
  12. My bad, I see it was a different comment and not yours. That was the guy saying the shield bonus is too powerful. I was stating that it works both sides was all. Apologies for mixing you up with that guy.
  13. Lol well earlier you mentioned how a shield grants 15% phys resistance (also mdmg resistance). You realize by using a shield on mc side as well. I hear you but considering the valid differences between the classes which make them powerful and unique in their own way I dont see how anyone can feel it is unbalancing. Crystana the player has a massive cool down and since we are speaking percentage seconds it does make a difference but that is the point of the game. Load up a DK or Barb the same and I can bet the outcome on the mc end would be different. I do hold that strategy will always win the day in arena on either side. I hope you dont feel Im being a jerk here to you - Im not. Quite the contrary. To have fun here we need as many active players as possible. My hope is to bring to the attention of all here that it really does go both ways. Have some variances with your accounts - i keep multi weapons and armor for switch outs for what I am doing (i.e., If questing or Arena or hitting the swamps or other crazy high damage areas where i dont want to jack up my good gear). My point is versatility. No one set of anything will always work. And the GMs solved a huge problem for most and thats getting gold faster - the new map average item is around 7gp per 1. I hope some of this will make the point that its not as bad as you feel and if you have been playing as long as I have that lately things have been evolving and I am certain with all that has been going on that if you step back and consider the powers of all the classes as a whole you will find a balance. Consider rogue - stealth, crit hit, stun and another crit with some of the fastest cooldown in the game. Its not so unblancing. The furure looks good for all. We should be asking how we can gain more skill points or when levels will reach 30 or will there be new expert skills instead of screaming about balance my friend.
  14. So again, you are clearly deceived or not really paying attention. 1) All DK skills cool down are 40% faster than a paladins. Guess you missed that. Only effective attacks are expert skills which dont spam like a DK. If you have a DK of any ability a paladin can be just as stunned as you end up being. 2) Strategy is everything in arena and pvp. It takes a brain to use it. Anyone charging into damaging attacks suffers both ways. Mc or Elf. 3) Pretty much the only arguement you and others have had is that you arent able to win freely just because and want to make the other side grossly weaker than you. Pretty funny actually considering the content of complaint and the basis of it. Btw it goes both ways. Simply said if I charge up on a shaman or necro in arena with a party and they spam circle, hit a banner and target me I too will and do die. The difference is you wont find me making a forum and posting a video of my clearly incompentent playing whining at the admins that it is unbalancing. Thats the main difference. Gz you have been playing as long as I have and seen many changes. I would say then that the game is actually quit more balanced now than it ever has been. The real shaper are like was said before the experience gained by playing and the right gear and high amp properly developed. But I like you will continue to answer your random comebacks always. Perhaps we will see each other sometime in the arena and there will be more of the conplaints? I just say the best thing would be to take it to heart that you are absolutely incorrect and the power balance in a necro alone is the same as a druid in the cycle you posted - thus balance is created between the two. A barb who played properly can wreck shop on a party in arena stunning and living forever enough to win at 1 hp while dealing massive damage all along the way same as a bd. And a DK too with the more damaging repertoire of attacks in his skill bar can negate a paladin and his meger set (experts are after all their damaging sets other than Purify and the cool down alone between using back to back experts is a long wait in arena). Basically for all your time playing you seem to miss these facts in all your complaints and reposts. Maybe take another look before u go all duck this and that and use some facts not fiction. ;-) my two cents guy
  15. Yeah if you are an old player then you remember banner used to be MUCH more powerful then MC complained and it was reduced a great deal. Here is a solution for having to run like a noob to use your stun. Develop this thing called a "strategy" and rather than play to mortal kombat style finish him on everyone select a different opponet to hop over to and stun while a decent magic user works them to death from a far. This is what I meant when I said figure out how to play your particular account and use it to its best effect. The paladin stun can miss and does. All these different sides can drag on for eons. I have little trouble playing either side and winning arena and I am far from the op paladin some people have. Something more interesting is when i utilize my skills I beat those heavier amped accounts with both my paladin and my dk. The point is with the time it seems people spend being angry and hating on others you could be doing your own discovery and account building so you negate the effect of the super op players i guess most of you despise. I say great job to them and I will one-day have that same heavy op gear and if i win 50/50 now a great deal under their op status what will happen then for me? Griping for change is how a great game gets ruined when the answer is right in front of your eyes guys. Da Vinchi said " To know thyself is to be as a God " he meant to know ur abilities and their use as well as your own limitations made you greater than most others. Something for you to think about.
