    You cannot be serious with this? Why do the existing unique soul pets not get the second unity and better overbreed passives? There are lots of people who spent hundreds of dollars on creature respecs to their perfect uniques and now you render them useless compared to newly tamed ones? Apparently you were able to give them 130% Item Expert, so why not give them the second unity and better overbreed passives?

      Summon Mastery is bugged.

        Just for clearance:
        Originally posted by Event Notes
        Starting this week, you’ll have a chance to get Stamina savers, Sta 1000, Growth Potions at different levels, and a Fake Investigation permit for the Distorted Space to allow you to explore the new Dungeon!
        1. Does this mean, that SS and GP are dropping for one week?
        2. Do they drop at a rate people actually see (like 2+ per hour?)

        That would be like.... AWESOME!
        One could even asume you are finally listening to your customers!
        As I am often complaining, I'd like to thank you for the following good decisions:
        - tradable HV
        - current exp and party exp events
        - the 7-day HV from the coupon

        And I am looking forward for the increased success rate of fortune cubes.

          I know exactly how you feel. I just spent quite a bit of time getting my perfect unique pet.

          I was excited about the new expansion until reading that. Still a lot of good things, but I don't feel like logging in now....if I have to start all over on my main pet again.

            Dont get mad bro, just spend more money in CS to get your new Perfect Unique, dont you see it?, the happiness will finish when the events are over

                Probably due to a login event.

              • #9

                  ~~Wooow Awesome !!!!!! Finally !!! I was having lingering feeling towards, should I leave the game for good or not ? But now I have no regrets in leaving this Messed up hoshposh for a game. Every epic they deliberately screw classes, so that people use rebirth to change into some other better class.
                  Thnx for screwing up Templars only good skill and RF's !!! If u take away RF's from master breeder's Pets. Then I wonder if that class is even playable.
                  2nd - 15 secs on holy ground ? is it even able to stack upto 3 times with that short duration ? Well sorry I ain't gonna stick around to find that out.
                  Why not do something good ? What should we place in new epic's contents ? put some new armours and skill on pets that are only available to NEWLY TAMED pets. That way the old stuffs become totally useless and people will have to spend more cash on CS to stay up to date. Those who do note use CS can go to hell. Oh btw every epic we make the class which is most popular into totally crap non-playable class and some unpopular class into godly tier. So that lots of people use CS, buy Rebirth / Homocrap to change their class. Every epic it's the same stuff.
                  Oh and in the starting of the new epic. Put lots of great events all packed in 1-3 weeks so that so many players that don't play anymore (just come online for events) And those professional players that earn cash through rappelz (who have like 6 pc's at home) all log in at same time and make the game unplayable for those who actually still play crappelz.
                  Enjoy the new epic !!

                  Webzen sorry to tell you this, I know I am badly hurting your feelings. But Gala-Net was 100 x better then you. I have been on this game since epic 3. The game was great. I could actually play it for like 12 hours straight literally and I am not even Korean / Chinese. B4 sales used to be actually called "sales" that used to happen once every 3-4 months, now 2 times a week.
                  Before so many people used to play this game and they used to recommend this game to many people. Even I did many times. Now ? even gold sellers don't prefer to log in this game.
                  Before every evening was laggy cuz soo many people used to play this great game. Now you can only mimic that by putting 5-6 events together. That also barely. Your crappy servers kick people out who actually play the game, Thnx to these events all packed together. Please a little advice, don't put login and exp/ drop event together. People can only do one thing, that is either stick to town and hope they don't DC or actually go for a party and enjoy themselves. Before we had like 5-6 servers all full usually. Now three servers out of which 2 of them are empty. LeL.
                  You guys gave the game a killing blow the moment you introduced +25 gear system. Now you gave it a final blow !!! with the new epic. Atleast for me. Before new epics were something to look forward to. But now they are just another nightmare. Hoping they would not screw any more stuffs that have already been screwed badly and just hoping they do not make it even more cash shop oriented.
                  Why not nerf Mercs for a change ? that skill with one shot ko ? with a +25 bow lol
                  LUCKILY I found a great alternative to rappelz, Where I don't have to constantly spend bucks to actually enjoy the game. To be honest, I don't have to spend a dime to be perfect and be on top tiers. Compared to rappelz, where only way to be better then anyone is to spend cash on cs.


                  • #11
                    Well, this epic really SUCKS. Why the new skills of Unique Souls pet are ONLY for the new tamed ones?? That's totally unfair to players who has worked hard to get they Uniques (perfects or not). If you want money, instead of ruin the game to make everybody spent, try to do the things better for the player comunity. You really, really SUCKS.


                    • #12
                      Almost none of the skill changes listed here actually occurred:

                      whats up with that,?

                      My favorite quote from forum: I happen to be a certified math genus in multiple relevant fields, I could tell you but i doubt you will understand them. no really normal people are like what the hell is that even a few fields of greater intelligence don't understand them well. LOL!
                      My toons: Slayer - VoidMage - Mercenary - Magus - Templar - Berserker

                        Btw cm, most of the stuff promised in the patch notes didnt happen. You guys might wana do an emergency maitnence.


                        • #14
                          The pets seem to be lagging behind speed-wise. They're not keeping up with the characters properly as I run through a town or a dungeon or wherever. They seem to stop (and get chewed on of course) and you have to go back to get them. This needs to be fixed. The loot pets - same thing.

                          The new Support of Gust duration is down but they did kind of make up for it with a shorter casting time. Something I can live with, although five seconds seems like a long time to lose sometimes.

                          As everyone else, disappointed with the lack of the dual unities for existing unique pets although my pet does seem a little more durable (at the moment).

                          Thoroughly disappointed with the new dungeon thingy. That is designed for groups and groups only. It appears there are only rewards are for killing the bosses which are not solo-able in any way. So that's another one I won't be venturing into again. The only thing to do in there for me is try to tame stuff to which there's no point in that at the moment.

                            I hope the server can stay up *Undine* so that I can get the 2 hour log in complete. Or is it 2 hours combined? (Hint ~ Hint)
