Ok well we shall chalk this up to the most annoying RNG I have ever seen. I knew Korean games were grindy but this is just BEYOND BELIEF for me.
I am honestly starting to feel annoyed at having a Master Pack at this point.
But anyways I figure I try something else besides blade master at Beta 2. At beta 1 it took a spectacular 13 runs of Blackram to get a Blight Sword for†Blade And Soul Gold. This was mostly due to RNG not dropping didly squad on the last boss and the boxes hating me.
Well surely the RNG has outdone itself with my Force Master.
Out of the 16 runs I have done on Black ram I have the following "results"
Number op Bangles Dropped: 0 †(Even in a party with 5 freaking Force Masters
Box 1: Blight Axe
Box 2: Blight Razor
Box 3: Blight Axe
Box 4: Blight Axe
Box 5: Blight Razor
Box 6: Blight Razor
Box 7: Blight Axe
Box 8: Blight Razor
Box 9: Blight Gauntlet
Box 10: Blight Axe
Box 11: Blight Axe
Box 12: Blight Axe
Box 13: Blight Razor
Box 14: Blight Gauntlet
Box 15: Blight Razor
Box 16: Blight Axe
Seriously what the heck What is wrong with this RNG? I play a Force Master. Cut me some slack and if I am wasting EXPENSIVE KEYS then at least give me the item i need after 10 boxes. I am currently 16 runs in and I wasted keys. This is just beyond stupid.
Korean MMOs are a grind fest. But this is just absurd.
I hope that either:
A - Transformation weapons become tradeable
B - Chances may increase for finding a weapon based upon how many keys are used
I mean you are seriously expecting me to waste what? 30 - 40 runs in the hope that I can actually progress in the game? It would not be so bad to Buy Blade And Soul Gold for the fact that this basically stops you from playing further since you need better weaponry and stats to continue. Can we make the RNG less of a pain here?

Here is a FULL UI + Voice Korean pack.. It is huge.. I apologize.. It is not just Voice. It also is a little bit buggy with some UI elements, but on top of changing voices, it changes minimaps and some UI elements from w.e language they originally were in into Korean.

This will be a rar full of files that you will need to safely extract into your CookedPC of your BNS folder. IF you use the Hero Izanami patcher for cheap Blade & Soul Items, I believe my KR patch is set up to integrate right into it. I may need to provide more details on it.

NOTE: Please back up EVERY SINGLE CookedPC file that my patch changes, just in case. I may also try to dwindle down the patch into a purely Korean voice patch, but for now it is a 1.5GB UI+Voice patch!


Instructions: As mentioned above, this RAR contains a ton of CookedPC files. Inside of the 'Korean' folder are all of the files. The other files such as the BAT, etc is all for the Izanami Patcher if you use that.

If Hero would like to PM me about getting the Korean patch also added to his Izanami Launcher, he can do so, but because of the size of this patch, it is purely voluntary. The files should work on any server as long as you put them in properly.

Don't forget to make backups.. It will take a while because of the sheer amount of files, and a lot of the UI elements were put in simply because I can semi-read Korean but can't read the Chinese in game.†

If you have any questions regarding the patch, please PM it to me privately.

Included: Korean Voice FULL (Cutscene, NPC, System, etc), BNS English Login Logo, Korean Minimaps, Korean Map, Korean Chat Tags, Korean Quest Tags, Korean Enhance Message, Other Korean Messages, and some more extras?

NOTE2: There are a few UI-related bugs due to it forcing the changes of some UI elements with†Blade & Soul Power leveling. Some UI elements like some Skill Guides in quests, guild coin ui are invisible. Don't worry though, because none of those bugs are big or game breaking.†

Increase the importance of owning specific land, making it more valuable.†
Coupled with the above spell and counter play of scouting make scouts even more important

Offer Guilds and groups various modes of transportation and routes, and information on tunnel systems even potentially becoming guild guarded secrets on best routes to and from areas.†

Allows people to outflank their enemies when, not only defending territory, but also attacking territory, offering another dimension to large scale PvP tactics. In terms of troop movement.†

Bbreak up a few zergs, without the minimap and with various routes, more people will need to cover different exits and locations. Meaning sure you can run around with a single zerg slaughtering all you need is huge number of†Albion Online Gold, but itís going to be much easier for small groups to slip through the cracks. Or you can split up into smaller groups and cover those cracks, offering smaller scale engagements, with the ability to call backup across the zone.†
But, far more importantly, this will benefit those who know an area. This will give groups local knowledge and be a boon when it comes to getting the most out of a region, making invaders really have to scout out ahead of time to know what is potentially there to invade and take, but also giving defenders advantage on their own lands. Bringing Skill and knowledge to the forefront of guild conflicts and territory control.

It's very good if you like a sandbox game that won't hold your hand and in which you will have to set up your own goals.

While playing this game you have to remember that it's not a race to the "endgame", and you should approach any level/gear advancements calmly and patiently.

Especially in Albion, advancement is a GRIND, you will spend hours to get to another tier of items, and if you're a harvester it's even more ridiculous because resources are scattered all over the huge world, they're very limited, there's a lot of other players looking for it, and you get overweight easily, so you'll have to run back to bank a lot. If you're a crafter then after hitting T3 you'll see that you have to choose what you want to craft, because exp gained from crafting will count only towards this item - as in I can only craft T4 leather hoods, and thats' it, can't craft the chest (seperate exp bar) or boots

Nonetheless, I believe that Albion is a GREAT game for old school sandbox MMORPG fans, however it is not a story-driven themepark MMO that we've been getting for the past ~13 years.

To be honest,†Albion Online Gold†is important in the game, if you want to be strong and powerful, then you may need a huge amount of golds.

Also playing in a guild (and a party at 90% of the time) is HIGHLY recommended.
but also I have to agree with /u/a99980 that founder packs are never worth it, if you're patient wait for release, if you just want to play something now, and you're fine with your characters being wiped and with what I mentioned above - go for it.
