Defragging almost certainly won't help, it just doesn't do much on modern computers anymore.It was already a year! Since I got the call that would come out, until it's gone... Buy Blade and Soul Gold I got the bracelet to all milk for nothing. Lol I haven't even done Desolate Tomb yet xD.
The client just seems to conflict with different things commonly found on our systems, causing it to perform far worse than it should, resulting in long loading screens, stuttering/freezing during game play, and disconnects, particularly during loading screens. Many people have been constantly complaining about those problems Blade and Soul Gold since the start of our alpha tests late last year. NCSoft has just been ignoring all such complaints completely, and they've lost a lot of players because of that.
It's 100% mechanics and 0% fun. You have not missed much. The drops are either really really good OR worthless. No inbetween. Watch some videos before you go, if you go. I'll go when I have another 600ap lol im only at 526 right now. Trying to get people to come back to play patch.
