    Hi Everyone,

    After being absent from the game for quite some time, I have recently decided to return, since I do have some time to spare.
    Now, one of the reasons I decided to stop in the first place, was the surprising amount of people with 0 manners, standards and HUMANITY above all. 0 Civilization whatsoever!

    Personally, I think that BP did Great in deciding to do something about this, thus not allowing the group leader to kick any member from the group, once the group leaves the city, to enter the dungeon.

    Unfortunately, some people are prepared to break the whole group, return to the city and re-invite the people they want. Of course, you hear ANY kind of stupid excuses, like "leave, because I want to invite my friend" and crap like that. So why haven't they decided to invite their friends in the first place and then invite others to complete the group, is something I fail to understand. Personally, I would finish the dungeon the way the group is formed, then invite my friend to join as soon as there would be a slot available.

    That is what my Friends do, when I ask them to join and their group is full. That's what I do when my group is full and a Friend of mine asks to join.

    On the other hand, the are some people that if I could describe them as Angels, I would say the Very Least about them! The amount of Help they give freely to others, is just beyond anyone could ever imagine! To me, these are the Real Players. The PROs. The Heroes. Not only in Dracania, but in Life too! And that is because here we are real people, forming a relatively small but real part of society. So, it is very easy to distinguish Heroes. I am Honored to have such a Hero Friend and together we farm all the difficulties of the dungeons available.

    Moreover, Traki and Baragain I would like to Thank you guys very much for your Great help and Support both here and @ the Wiki. Your contribution is simply Unimaginable and no one can ever get close to that! If BP wants to seriously move forward here, you guys should be Lead Devs, to say the least. Cheers Brothers!

    People are misinterpreting that and give more credit to BP than they deserve :D
    They didn't do that so they would protect the players ... they did that to protect themselves. In other words they did that so the players can't relog in maps anymore :p
    Anyone can leave the group ... but when the run is finished. Otherwise I would stay on the map and prevent them to add other people ... so they would leave the group not me XD
    The players are mirroring BP ... skillful and helpful are leaving while noobs and useless are climbing up the ladder.

    Hey guys!

    After new patches mages became very OP in PVP. There is no chance win when they stun you 3 times in a row and you can cancel stun just 2x and then they use ice balls, What is it? 2x wind 1x port+ frozen nova and you are dead. Just let you know i play with 1hand + shield ofc, my blocks are 80% armor 80% and res 72% in pvp and i die after 2 ice balls? Really? I just hope next patch brings something like from 25% dmg in tree to 5% (I mean EA) to be more weak and give them bigger chance to win :)

    If Mortis did created the Dragon in ancient times, why he didn't escape from the pit long ago? This takes away my sleep every night, please someone enlighten me!

    Let alone I don't really understand what are you talking about... and I'm not going to waste my time trying. Regardless, I'll say this once more.
    The fact that you are weak and meet a strong player from another class doesn't mean that class is OP!!!
    Just like when you meet a cheater (either user of external app or a simple exploiter) it doesn't mean the class the cheater is using is OP. Only when two people on the same character development level (and none of them is cheating) meet and one has a great edge over another it means that one class is OP. And "the same toon development lvl" can only be really surely called so when both characters are maxed out.

    Anyways, now PvP is suffering from two problems:
    1. One-hit knockout all over. Even 1h+shield chars kill each other pretty quickly... at least on lvl55 high-end: for some reason it doesn't apply to PvP around lvl25 (below there are still mostly old twinks and above it is moving towards OHKO).
    2. Cheat2Win. Cheaters using external apps, bots and various exploiters rule the arena.
    Were those fixed, PvP would be good. The devs are planning some sort of PvP rebalancing... what will exactly happen - nobody knows. Perhaps not even the devs are sure... yet.
    I am not a Guru... but this one seems a simple lore question.

    To create the Dragon he used a piece of power he was given by all the other gods (probably: Artaya, Fyrgon, Fjalnir, Ankheia and Oceanus). Then he was imprisoned by all them combined, again. He alone couldn't stand against 5 beings of at least his power level.

    Weak? Lol man if you were read my text carefuly you would understand. I am sure you are not ranger and you know nothing about them. Try pvp ranger vs mage, doesnt matter if its 1v1 or 5v5 you will lose cuz of their stun. This need to be nerfed.
  10. ΣMiwel

    If not weak... then simply lacking basic pvp skills.

    I have experience with all the four classes... If you are letting a mage freeze you when you are a ranger... you're doing it wrong.
    There is a tactic for every ranger build against a mage utilizing the MC+FW&FW&TP+FN triple stun tactic. Tell me what is your ranger build and I'll tell you what you can do... if you can't think of it yourself.

    PS.: The said tactic is there since lvl50 was max (before there was the stun protection), not since the latest update. If you haven't seen it before, it only proves you lack general PvP experience.
    And once again, this is the cause of the OHKO mechanics in PvP (see my previous post). OHKO has to be removed and the stun resistance after using a stun break has to be returned to the honor tree, and what you are describing won't be a problem anymore.

    What is he talking about is true ... and it is what i was always saying about the Mind Control BUG that never get fixed intentionally.
    Why? Because these devs are good for nothing. I would not even give them toilet cleaning job.
  12. ΣMiwel

    ΣMiwel Forum Ambassador

    Just one thing... Until the very R209 the description of that talent stated in every language I checked save English that it is on hit by MC. This includes the German version which was the original version of the game for a very long time... and perhaps it is still now.

    Anyways, now everywhere it's stated that it requires a succesful controlling...
    So I am suggesting a "great" (for sure it sounds great to the devs) solution:
    Make the mind control actually force the player to move to the opposite team for 8 seconds... so that he cannot harm his real enemies (but also can't be harmed by them) and can fight his teammates. :D:D:D

    Now more seriously. SW is very vulnerable when casting MC. I really don't understand how can anyone who is not a DK have any problems with exploiting this weakness. Especially with the current OHKO in PvP... In fact most SWs would die from one EA from a similarly-developed ranger when casting this.

    And one more thing. MC doesn't stick to any enemy in range of 100 miles when casted, like it used to be. If you don't click almost directly on the enemy position it doesn't work.
    In fact it seems that it spawns an invisible aura on the clicked point (or an obstacle-piercing missle towards that point - not sure) at the "cast frame". This means that if the opponent jumps out right on the moment the SW is casting his MC, odds are you won't be hit=astral phenomenon won't activate.
    Not even saying you can use BD when the SW is trying to freeze you, escaping the first stun and thus leaving him with his normal 2 stuns. Another possibility is using BD when he teleports towards you in order to use FN... or you can simply welcome him with a DS and then proceed to BD... because, once again, Frost Nova is not instant! It has in fact a quite delayed cast frame (unlike FW, which has almost instantly coming cast frame - and is possible to escape anyways, I'm doing it on my ranger very often).

    And one more thing... if someone always aims and times skills perfectly, odds are it's a bot.

    Time Out!

    Do not let this turn into a class battle. I hate those threads with a violent passion and if there is any more here, I'll politely ask the mods to drop a bomb on those posts in this thread. This is supposed to be a thread for asking serious or humorous questions of the two heaviest posters on the EN forums, and while some debate is healthy, it has been a long time sine I've seen any healthy debate on class balance.


    Wait... you're telling me that this game has a story? I never noticed. :p

    I have tried to find on google a page with all uniques of this game, well, i didnt succed, although before it was some kind of page on wiki, but now is just a page under construction with very few items.

    Any clue?

    Thanks gurus, i really highly aprreciate your work, although i consider that you do what this lazy greedy BP should do.
  15. _Baragain_

    _Baragain_ Living Forum Legend

    All the uniques are in there, but the page that is supposed to list them all is a beast to update and keep updated. I don't have as much free time as I used to, so I'm not as helpful when it comes to the wiki, but there is always room for a concerned player who wants to help make a mark on the community.

    Alternatively, if you are more comfortable in the forum, you could make a sort of index here on the forum linking to the appropriate items on the wiki, but that just changes the form of the work, not the amount of it.

    Go to the DSO wiki, which is updated by @trakilaki. You just need to learn how to search the desired items, e.g. if you need to find Kranparus' weapon, you can type "Kranparus' treasures" go to the page, click the on the weapon's link and so on. There you got the 3 infernal stats.

    One question for Traki because he play with ranger : Are you try DS for primary marking skill? Combo DS+EA+DB working better like before.
  18. trakilaki

    trakilaki Living Forum Legend

    We are limited to very few links in the main menu ... so we can't add all items and articles up there.
    I am already thinking of a concept and design for a new home page menu which will include almost all our articles sorted out by category.
    Until then the "search box" is the only way to find any article easy and fast.
    DS as a Death Swing?
    I have never used Death Swing neither as a primary nor as secondary skill ... not my cup of tea.
    I am marking with Hunting Arrow, Hunting Traps and Dive since the new skill reworking.
    Actually I haven't met anyone in the game so far ... using Death Swing as a marking skill.
    Death Swing is very limited for marking. It is only hitting the monsters in front of you.
    Hunting Traps and Dive are marking everything around you within the radius of effect.
    I am using them in combination with DB and EA ... but with the new talents and wisdom I am using DB rarely than before because I can spam 4 EAs or more than 10 PSs until my concentration goes to 0 and then i can use the Adrenaline.

    I never restrict myself with only one bild , EA spam can`t refill HP & concentracion. ;) The combo DS+EA+ DB working , DS- mass mark , with 2 fast hits - 6-10 marked mobs , runspeed debuff+ atack speed debuf+ DMG per time , EA - everyone know how it work ;) ,boost DPS from DS and from next ending skill DB too, and after this you are fill in up with HP& conc. It working with q4 bow too, DS+ SS+EA + DB .
  20. Hetsunien

    Hetsunien Padavan

    Sorry for the intromission, but I had to reply since I'm [probably] the only Ranger that uses Death Swing whenever I'm wearing a shield. In most cases you can't get closer to mobs in higher difficulties when using a Siege Bow/Quiver, so relying in the block rate/strength a shield can give, you can take several hits without dying suddenly. I think this ability is pretty good, but the safety provided by Hunting Arrow and all other abilities made to mark at distance are priceless, besides, almost no one [if not anyone] farm with shields on.
