For all those who like pve and are debating whether you should refund or not, I'd say go watch some videos/streams on current endgame blade and soul pve.
Blade And Soul Pve or Pvp Game?
At the moment I don't think pve players will be satisfied since there's no endgame content, but within 1-2 months of release they should start adding more if they don't add some for release. Pve can actually be pretty difficult and fun from what I've tried on the Asian servers and that was with 200+ ping (though its still hard for people with low ping).
For all those who like pve and are debating whether you should refund or not, I'd say go watch some videos/streams on current endgame blade and soul pve. If you do like it and think you'll return then I'd say keep the master's pack. You will never be able to get a deal that good later on, especially if you plan to play with premium. The master pack starts you at rank 6 (rank 5 + 7200 NCoin) which is already over $125 without adding the $90 value of the NCoin itself. Then you get the costumes, 3 months premium (you'd probably only have a month left), name reservations, max character slots, and the booster pack.
The booster pack alone is especially nice for any player because you get enough dragon trade pouches to almost max out your inventory from the start, so then all those pouches from surveys/quests can be used on your warehouse. This is all if you plan to play premium, but don't forget even if you don't play for a year assuming the premium is 1200 NCoin ($15) then the 7,200 NCoin in the master pack will buy you 6 months of premium.
In my opinion this is really a subscription game with an infinite free trial, except the trial has access to everything. Is it P2W? No, but the quality of life in premium (wardrobe, shorter windstride cooldown (map teleport), shorter chi recovery (when you die and need to meditate), tons of auction slots, tiny blade & soul gold boost from quest/mobs (it adds up), reduced fees on upgrades/selling in auction, and not to mention the portable shop. (and bank at rank 9)
That portable shop alone is a good enough reason to have the master pack since you get at rank 4. I can't tell you how nice it's been to be able to sell trash on the go instead of having to go find a shop or run around with a full inventory. But anyways, the game can definitely be played without premium its just a lot smoother with it. So my recommendation is look at pve and premium benefits, and if you think you'll ever return and want to premium then don't refund the pack.
Blade and Soul Money - a real Problem while leveling
and seems to be a MASSIVE problem in Blade and Soul, and that is Cash. Nothing gives you Blade & Soul gold, like almost nothing awards you any substantial amounts of cash.
Dear BNS - Most of the time I'm doing Faction quests?
Frustrated many of the reds, including most in my friend lists frustrated because they can't do any faction quests done and their insignia, they switched to blue.
Blackram Supply Chain
The 24-player version of Blackram Supply Chain is called the E. Fleet Supply Chain, and must be entered directly from the instance portal. 24-player versions of dungeons allow multiple groups of players to enter at the same time to conquer constantly respawning enemies and bosses
Blade And Soul is Pay to Win? or Not?
As BNS update the max level to 50, entire weapon transformation system will change (based on KR BNS).
