BnS Gold: The Blade and Soul Academy

World of Warcraft is the biggest MMO in the industry at present. It’s got a ton of amazing resources of information and there’s pretty much a mod out there for any purpose. It’s basically the dream of every MMO to have resources like this. Unfortunately, this is not the case with Blade and Soul. But with a fanbase as loyal as Blade and Soul’s, the community, without a doubt, is well on its way. And the proof is in the pudding or, at least, in the Reddit post: “Work in Progress Due to the amazing interest that we had when…

BnS Gold: Stall Tactics in Arenas

Stall tactics, in any game, is usually viewed with contempt. It isn’t illegal to partake in such a strategy, but it certainly is quite cheesy to do so as it entails waiting out an enemy or chipping away at their health bit by bit, overpowering them with your sheer endurance and/or HP pool. This is the basic concept of it and it certainly is no stranger to PvP in Blade and Soul. Around the BnS gold betting rings I’ve been around with in the game, people are the saltiest when they lost a bet due to one of the players…

BnS Gold: Understanding Your Stats

Blade and Soul is primarily a skill-based game where you have to manually evade, counter, and block. There aren’t any passive evasion stats where you’d suddenly be able to dodge what really did hit you in the face in the first place. This makes it much more rewarding compared to other MMOs. However, you still need some basic understanding on how your other stats work lest you be confused as to why you are dying or why some of your attacks hurt so much. This is where you take a look at your actual statistics. BnS Gold: Offensive Stats Perhaps…

BnS Gold: LFP Kick Function – Where is it?

It’s been months since Blade and Soul’s release and it certainly hasn’t gotten any closer to becoming a better game. While NCWest has been taking measures to ensure that the game is enjoyable for most folks once more, eagerly inviting them back with tons of QoL changes to the game, one of the most basic QoL functions still remain missing to this day; vote kicking. BnS Gold: Screw AFKers and Botters The biggest factor that ruined the Blade and Soul experience is that the game is littered with hundreds and thousands of bots. From questing areas to farming spots, bots…

Blade and Soul Gold: Pay-To-Win?

Pay-to-Win (P2W) is an OBSCENELY broad term. It varies from person to person and from game to game. In World of Warcraft, apparently buying a mount is already P2W for some people. Go figure. But in games like Blade and Soul where the cash shop has the huge possibility of being a big, deciding factor in player progression, it gets a bit more nitty-gritty. Blade and Soul Gold: The Game is NOT P2W First of all, what is my definition of P2W? Well, that’s being able to use Blade and Soul gold and/or real money to purchase gear that would not…

BnS Gold: 4 Man Desolate Tomb Catch Up System

It’s been quite some time now that NCSoft’s been dropping catch-up events to help other players gear up more and catch up for end game, making Blade and Soul less of a grindy game. It’s similar to how TERA was made to be more western-friendly compared to its Asian counterpart. This also helps a lot of new players getting into the game without being daunted by the massive amount of gear progression required simply to be eligible for basic end game activities. BUT it may be a bit unfair for older and more experienced players as they get nothing much…

BnS Gold: AP Requirements – Strict or Not?

In a certain reddit post brought to our attention by a player who was publicly flamed on general chat, AP requirements in Blade and Soul are a huge thing that most players fuss over. Now, while I respect the right of people choosing who they want to run with, I don’t really subscribe to the idea of the stringent AP requirement for instances as anybody with half a brain can definitely take on the content of the game with the minimum requirements. BnS Gold: The Situation “Now let me start this off with this basic disclaimer: I do not look…

Blade and Soul Gold: NCSoft has Done a Lot

NCSoft’s gotten a bad rap for these past couple of months that Blade and Soul’s been kicking it in the western territories. NCSoft this, NCSoft that; the list of complaints just go on and on. If it’s not the deflation of items for their Blade and Soul gold pricing, it’s some allegedly game-breaking “bug” that people can’t stomach. But one redditor points out that they all aren’t too bad as they’ve done a lot in the past to help the game, and community, thrive. A few of those points are outlined below: Blade and Soul Gold: NCSoft’s Achievements Thus Far…

BnS Gold: The Shadows of the Innocents Patch Changes

It’s here! The Shadows of the Innocents update comes in with a lot of new content, updates, balancing, new items, and, of course, the three new instances that include the massive 24-member encounter that is the Twisted Grimhorn Wilds. But, more importantly, the other updates have more bearing on the overall game. Certain things that we players were used to have changed and will affect how we do our character progression and BnS gold farming. Speaking of BnS gold farming, there are tons of new things to do and the old ways have changed from slightly to significantly. There are…

An in-game notice will be given 30 minutes prior to the maintenance starting.

That’s a big chunk of time being taken away from us to enact routine maintenance and activate the Linked Server Groups feature that NCSoft announced recently. But, at the very least, Blade and Soul didn’t go down for maintenance the day before, as it…
