Blade & Soul: “mushin” to”genericnameone”

I think it was between 6pm and 7pm yesterday, 2/8/2016. At the time, the name of my character was already changed from “mushin” to”genericnameone.” I was following my standard routine, logging into each of my alts and sending moonwater transformation stones to my main. For the first four transfers, I accidentally sent the stones to mushin, out of habit… it went through, because somehow another player had already made a character with the name mushin. The next two transfers were done correctly, to genericnameone.

My name change was conducted around noon EST. Consequently, if you check the mail transfer list of a character named mushin, after that time, then you may see strange transfers of 10 moonwater transformation stones to that character – a low level destroyer.

Thank you for your help, both with this and the name issue… Blade-Soul would appreciate it if this can be solved before the content update…

As you can see, although I mentioned this fact repeatedly the support continued to not really check the transfer record of the alts and kept insisting that I already got the stones… It may be a bit confusing, but just checking the transfer record of each alt on the evening of February 8th will show this.

Not just one alt, but all 6 alts – maybe they checked one alt, saw that the transfer was to the correct character, and stopped checking. However, two of the alts did send the stones correctly, it’s just the other four alts that sent the stones to “mushin.”

First off, unfortunately, all the names you had provided us are all taken. We would like to ask again for another batch of names. Second, We had checked your logs and found out that the 40 ” Moonwater Transformation Stones” are successfully mailed to your toon Mushin before we had renamed it to GenericNameOne. Kindly check your inventory to see the items.

Why People Love Blade & Soul

This isn’t intended to be a complete troll thread, but more just my opinion after playing pretty heavily for over a month. I can understand why people love this game. The graphics, game play, storyline, world. pve and pvp are all very well done, however there are many things that make this game unplayable for casual and non expert gamers. The grind is just way too ridiculous. My main is a 46+ FM needs that needs 47 gold to upgrade its weapon. 12 for the cost and 35ish for the moonwater secret technique. Then I have to wait another day for the trans stone to complete. I’ve tried soloing Brightstone and obviously that didn’t go well.. Not to mention non of my accessories are siren and need ridiculous amounts of grinding as well. I’m not an instant reward guy, but even getting to this point was pretty Blade & Soul Gold. I know MMOs are grinding, but come on. We all seek to hit the highest tier as soon as possible, but I don’t see it any where in sight.

I understand the level of skill this game takes is what makes it special, but the learning curve is pretty rough. I watched vids read tons of threads, but I get wrecked in PVP and I’m not even gold. Which is fine except the game pushes you to PVP for souls. After the 4th day of getting smashed on and I just quit pvp entirely. I’d play a class that is easier to learn, but there no way I’m grinding to 45. That and we don’t have a universal vault so I can transfer gold and stuff over to make it less of a hassle. I guess I could try sparring and practicing but the dailies take up most of the day as it is.

I’m sure there are plenty of people that enjoy all the grinding, but I guarantee you 2/3s of people have or will quit in the near future. My friends have all quit after hitting 45 and seeing the upgrade reqs. This isn’t Korea. The majority of Americans aren’t going to play a game where it can take a week for an upgrade. I hear it doesn’t get easier as we higher either. People paying 1,000s of dollars instead of playing. I noticed the twitch viewers has dropped dramatically and I understand why. This game is for elite American and regular Korean gamers. I commend you. You guys are impressive, but my guess is the player base will only be small amount of you because every else has bailed. Oh and the bots..

I will say that Ive found that this game is not a hard grind to get to 45. Its quite fast and easy to level up in comparison to other games. I dont understand why people want the best stuff in a matter of days, then what? You’d get bored and have nothing else to work for (especially considering that you said you dont want to get another character to 45; which you wouldnt be alone in). Money is easy to obtain even for casuals. Will it take longer to get upgrades?

Of course it will, but thats due to the amount of time you place into the game. Ive never once played a game that rewarded you more for Blade & Soul Power leveling. New games always have a high influx of people because everyone wants to try out the shiny new toy; they never stay the same size as when they initially started. BDO will be exactly the same, as will the next and the next. I think that NA is used to instant gratification and if there isnt any, there’s something wrong with the game (which imo, there isnt). I dont personally believe this game requires much expertise to play. It just takes time to master.
