The Learning Points of Albion Online

Added 16/8/2016

I wanted to add, one of the core reasons I play this game is because of the Learning Points. I travel for work, sometimes extensively, and many times in locations without sufficient cell/WiFi service to play. Additionally, I have a family, a large one, and thus this leads to me not being able to dedicate sufficient time to keep up. Albion is one of the few online games where, I feel, I can miss a few hours, days, or even weeks and still be able to keep up and contribute.

I am not expecting to be at the top without any active play time, but the LP gives me the edge, I feel, to stay competitive. Most other games, of this type, in the past, would always make me feel if I could get a lot of Albion Online Silver I was left out and/or behind. Without the learning points, I more than likely would not bother playing the game with the current amount of fame it takes to achieve additional tiers. In short, I support Learning Points in Albion, and I support multiple characters; anyone with kids and a life would understand why.

I would also like to add I enjoy the reputation system as it strikes a right balance between reward versus consequence. If people want to be criminals/murderers then they should be punished for it and labeled as outlaws; regardless of how good they were in the past.

This was addressed a bit earlier, this would essentially be the same as limiting an account to one character. Instead of playing 3 accounts with 3 character per we would play 9 accounts with 1 character per.

With the way LP works I honestly cannot see a way (as a programmer myself) that it would be able to accomplish the goal that the developers are aiming for, helping casual players. I have probably ran a million test cases over and over in my head and every scenario still points to this mechanic being circumvented. The only way this system would truly benefit a casual player would be get albion online gold for sale if fame were removed all together and all characters only progressed through LP at the exact same pace of 20 per day and you removed player to player trading (like Black Desert Online has done). This would mean everyone is progressing in their own field at exactly the same rate regardless of alts. Grind would no longer matter, or anything else really.
That is the only scenario where i can see LP helping a casual, but it would also remove any reason to play the game at all.

I get what you're saying Harm, I would think you would be an exception to the rule though.

If someone has a very large amount of time (and/or money) to play, they're going to progress faster regardless of any balance changes with the LP system. and the game shouldn't be balanced around those types of players (they're a very small % of playerbase).

Increasing the fame bar / penalty would slow down stacked LP progression on alts, more time needs AO Gold to be invested into each alt to make it be worthwhile which many players won't want to invest outside their main.

This would deter people with normal amounts of playtime from feeling the need to use alts to be competitive, and still allow casual players to use LP in a natural fashion to stay relevant. Currently it feel like an obligation to all players, because it's so powerful compared to focusing on your primary character.

I'm also all for 1 character (which solves even more problems imo), but if that's not feasible, they should at least make it so players don't feel obligated to use all 3 characters like the current system does.

Blade & Soul: Nothing Is Impossible

Added 1/8/2016

You have a masters pack and couldn't get your blight weapon?

wait. unless... did you use your brilliant viridian key on another weapon box with the help of Blade & Soul Items? Masters pack owners get a class specific key for the 1-20 area. this key should ONLY and i repeat ONLY be used on the blight chest. any weapon you need before this is tradeable and therefor should not need a special key.

Sorry OP but you f'ed up

now for anyone without that special key
grind it out. you don't lose too much just doing the dungeon and you aren't very hindered by skipping it for a while. I leveled to 36 without getting my blight weapon and then I leveled to 45 without getting my flame weapon. the weapons are strong enough to carry you. you can't avoid the RNG even at cap with all the money in the world. If you are grinding for end game bopae(soul shields), there are 8 pieces with random chances to drop and even if you get it, there's RNG on whether you'll get the highest stat roll or not.

it's korean. the more you play, the more you are rewarded.

I've honestly never the seen the option to buy brilliant keys for valor stones, unless I'm just completely blind I don't think you can get cheap Blade & Soul Power leveling. You are probably talking about a private server, on official ones the only way to get brilliant keys is from the cash shop, survey, or rare drop from the reward chests for quests/dungeons.

Translation Patch of Blade & Soul Taiwan

Added 1/7/2016

I was able to do the manual dat file, and the game works with that. What i can't seem to get right is the game patcher. It never sees the dat file when i do the setup. My game directory is the same as yours Cowgirl and it never sees anything in that folder. The odd thing is when i open the folder by myself ( without the patcher) i see the dat file just fine.

Either way i'm grateful for the translation with Blade And Soul Gold, just wish i understood the instructions better, cuzz i seem to be missing something in step one. =/

BTW This is the part that is killing me:
"3. Setting up
1. Run the BladeAndSoulTWLauncher program from the folder you downloaded. On first run, you will be asked to browse to the Replace.bat from EnglishPatch or EnglishPatch_ProjectIzanamiOnly. If you didn't do this step, BladeAndSoulTWLauncher will not check for updates and just show its main interface."

If anyone could explain how to do this step that would be great because i'm totally lost right here. I run the launcher and i browse to: C:\Program Files (x86)\NCTaiwan\Blade & Soul\contents\Local\NCTAIWAN\CHINESET\data but i keep finding nothing in my folder. obviously i'm doing something wrong.

Ok i got it and just in case there are others like me. here is what i did. Once you are at the google drive download be sure you download "EnglishPatch.2015.6.9.zip" and if you want the auto updater download " BladeAndSoulTWLauncherUpdate.0.0.0.8.exe "

make a new folder (i put mine on desktop) name it whatever ya want ( mine is izanami ) unzip the two files you just downloaded to get Cheap Blade And Soul Gold. Next run the blade and soul patcher that you just extracted, it will ask for you to "Brows to the Replace.bat" so go the the folder you just made and find the "Replace" file. That is the one you want. now just run the patcher and your done.
