if someone buys a Ryzen CPU and they're looking to get a GPU in the 1060 / 480 range, then the 480 is the better choice
anything higher than that is Nvidia because AMD does not have a good answer
this hopefully changes whenever AMD gets around to releasing Vega and then we'll see if Nvidia...
Server merge occurring 11/30

people can buy cash shop costumes for in-game silver now.
the normal armor sets themselves probably don't differentiate much from each other looks wise other than boss armor, but dyes are purchasable with in-game silver and a cash shop item called Value Pack which can also be purchased with...
Patch Notes - August 31st
Biggest changes imo are Cooking / Alchemy requiring no Energy and increase Combat XP for Lvl 50+.
Warrior Awakening has been released.
Valencia Part 2 has been added, including Villas, Miniature Elephants, and much more.
Happy Awakening to Warrior event...
yeah cash shop selling should be very tolerable for the non-cash shop seller at these prices
some people think it's a slippery slope for more P2W down the line, but I'm going to judge the game based on its current state and there isn't much advantage given to the cash shop seller at these...
while I do consider the change to allow cash shop selling of items to be P2W, I'm pretty sure power is much more easily purchasable in Archeage than BDO
the highest end armor / weapon gear is still going to be gated by BDO's RNG upgrade system and some of the highest end of accessories (Ogre...
How many Relic Shards do you think you average on a 3 hour basis at that spot?
I started afk fishing instead of afk horse training since Relic Shards have gone up in price so much.
I think I average around 1-3 Relic Shards / 3 hours at a non-Gold Abundant area
P2W $15 / month item has been added
Introducing the Value Pack
Marketplace Collection Tax reduced by 30%
For the duration of the Value Package players will receive a 30% reduction in the amount of tax applied from items sold on the Auction House.

you will need to do a ton of PvE mob grinding to be PvP viable
+16 to +20 released recently so the gear gap has increased
+15 gear might be ok if you're in a small guild that is just fighting over a T1 node, but the node system is on hold at the moment for more fine tuning
it greatly diminishes the value of having a high level processing skill
certain processing levels open up the ability to process new types of things or increased proc rates
after you've reach those tiers, the only reason to have a higher processing level is so that less energy points are...
massive patch notes
Patch 15.06 (Siege War) postponed
Processing doesn't require energy
Ghillie suit doesn't work in node wars/red battlefield
Marketplace buy orders
Accuracy and DP offhands now gain damage on enhance from +8-15
Receive all button for mail
breeded my first T6 and it seems to be learning a whole lot of stuff that my other horses never learned
got instant acceleration + drift + sprint on it. total of 12 skills at Lvl 25. fortunately no Caution skill which all my other horses seem to always pick up. only other skill I'd really...
new T6 + T7 mounts added in
no more XP loss on PvP death
Additional profession quests added in that reward hard / sharp black crystals
Patch Notes - June 1st
The Mother’s Day Event has ended.
Rum & Black Stone Event
Both of these events have been extended until June 8th.
my reaction is that people just don't know how to make silver
most obvious method is either via mob grinding or fishing
I got full +15 Grunil, +15 Yuria Staff, and +15 Steel Dagger with a Lvl 51 Witch and all the pieces were bought at +15 off of the market place
I built up most of my silver...
game is pretty much single player until Lvl 50 where you then get access to 3/5 man boss scrolls and there's decent incentive to do them in a group even though the 3/5 man boss scrolls can be soloed
the best grind spots are also grouped and also the likeliest area where you'll see any open...
blue pieces being harder to enchant has to do with silver cost and supply of the blue pieces
it has nothing to do with actual enchant chance
other than buying a +15 piece off of the market place, you are much better off with enchanting green pieces to +15 and then making them blue / ultimate...
Mediah is Lvl 50+
can possibly go into Mediah pre-Lvl 50 but need max enchant gear + lots of accuracy to do so. Mediah has lots of packs with 1-2 high HP giants mixed in that will make progress very slow if your AP is not decently high.
if you are at Lvl 50 with low gear level enchants...
using the contribution points to put laborers to work and converting their production to stuff that can sell on the marketplace will result in a greater return value than saving the contribution points for the armor / weapon stone contribution point quests
