New Blade & Soul Equipment Type Comes to Chinese Server

While Blade & Soul reaches 1 million players in NA and EU server, it releases new equipment type “Charms”. It’s a new type of accessory that gives boosts to character skills. Charms are crafting only items that can be made with materials dropped in the new levels of Tower of Mushin.

The Charms I’ve seen are exclusive to each class. To craft Charms, players have to purchase sandalwood using chaplets dropped in Tower of Mushin 16 – 20 floors.

New costumes are also available in the Chinese B&S store. With Chinese New Year coming in February, traditional Chinese style costumes with lots of red color are also released.

Blade & Soul Player Sued Balde & Soul Developer

NCsoft’s kung fu MMORPG Blade & Soul just got official release on Jan 19 while most of the players are still enjoying the gameplay, a player named Mark Bright brought a charge against developer NCsoft with the California Criminal Court, for the continued “psychological trauma” caused by the summoner class in Blade & Soul.

Summoner, the class in question, is one of the playable classes in Blade & Soul. They are able to summon a feline as their companion. The feline will go everywhere the Summoner goes, fighting with their master together. Bright claimed that after playing Blade & Soul from the head start to present for a total of 36.8 hours, the Summoner class has exposed him to “excessive feline rears” and “continued exposure to inappropriate feline imagery.”

Bright also stated that this exposure not only affects his relationship with his wife but also his cat named Bagpuss in real life because the pet in Blade & Soul provided “unconditional love and affection at all times, without asking for anything in return” , which caused irreparable damage to his real life relationships.

Bright told carrotonastick how it affects his real life by the following:

Pumpkin not only listened to what I had to say, but she’d let me dress her up in anything I wanted. She was dressed as a Frog sometimes looked adorable. I tried dressing Bagpuss up in similar but I had to go to the hospital for stitches. He’s so ungrateful.

“We’d do fun things together like kill bosses or explore the countryside. My wife never wanted to do anything like that. She just sits and watches The Biggest Loser while eating Ben and Jerry’s.”

 Blade & Soul Player Sued Balde & Soul Developer

I just grew tired of constantly having to look at her backside. Everywhere we went, she was behind me blocking my view. You can’t even see my character because of the bloody cat. It’s even worse when we fly through the air together. The camera’s practically up its arse.

Bright is claiming significant mental damages as well as a public apology from NCsoft, though NCsoft has not yet responsed that.

What Bright wishes next? Well, maybe move to Fallout 4..
I’m ready to move on from Pumpkin and my wife with some money behind me. This lawsuit should do that. I think I’m more of a dog person. I hear Fallout 4 offers that kind of relationship. I just hope I don’t have to look at a Dogs backside instead. Does it walk alongside you?

Blade & Soul New Hairstyles Preview

For those who pre-ordered Blade & Soul, they should be excited now as the head start will begin in just 3 days! If you pre-ordered Disciple or Master Founder’s Pack, you can now reserve the name you like to use in the game. The reservation started today on Jan 11th, at 7pm CET for the European servers, and 6pm PST for North American servers. Disciple founder’s pack owners can create one character while the Master Founder’s pack can create two names.

In addition, here’s a quick video showing you the new hair styles that will be available with the launch of the game.

Name Reservation – January 11

Reserve your character name with a Disciple or Master Founder’s Pack.

Name Reservation for Disciple and Master Founder’s Pack owners begins January 11, 2016 at 7pm CET for the European servers, and 6pm PST for North American servers. When Name Reservation begins you’ll be allowed to log in, and servers for your region will be available to create characters on. Please be aware of which region you’re logging in to from the drop down on the launcher.

If you participated in any of the Closed Beta weekends, you’ll need to reinstall the game before Name Reservation. While it’s not necessary to uninstall any previous clients, it is recommended. You can download the Blade & Soul launch client here.

If you own a Disciple Founder’s Pack you’ll be able to log in, select a server, and create one (1) character in your region. The character will remain there until you’re able to begin playing at Head Start on January 15. If you own a Master Founder’s pack you’ll be able to create two (2) characters, and reserve two character names. Be aware that Initiate Founder’s Pack owners will not be able to reserve a character name, but it is still possible to upgrade to a Disciple or Master pack.You are allowed to get more information in the official website to buy more Cheap Blade And Soul Gold.

Your character name isn’t guaranteed to be available as other players will be registering names at the same time. It’s recommended to try reserving your character name as soon as possible. Knowing which server you want to play on, your race and class, as well as character appearance options can all help reduce the time needed to secure a name. Also be aware that your Disciple or Master Founder’s Packs come with either one or two Character Alteration Vouchers that you can use to change the appearance of your character later once Head Start begins.

You only have a few days left to purchase a Founder’s Pack and get in on Name Reservation and Head Start, get a stockpile of in-game NCoin currency, and receive rare boosts and bonuses—as well as costumes and weapon looks that will never be available again.For more information, click here.
