Hey guys! SallyMoNella mage here from light.
I made this character recently as a "vacation" char. I didn't go anywhere for holiday so decided to put some time and money into a MMORPG I used to play when it first came out...
....what I didn't realize is that I had to do a lot of reading before playing, I've never really done PvP in Shaiya, just the usual grind. I got a bit sick of reading (for those of you who have quit and came back after a LONG time you know how I feel).
Looks like I should have read more since a lot of my sources were dated.
Today I found out that my lvl 2 fire ele top and weap were bannable (whoops!!). Just wanted to come here and apologize for not reading the new PHOENIX pvp rules more thoroughly (or..at all....because I had zero clue they existed...figuring if something wasn't allowed it would just be impossible to do in game).
Anyway I panicked (I'm not a cheater) and ran my butt to the blacksmith to get them extracted (expensive piecesofsh btw).
ANOTHER thing I didnt know (and the lovely NPC blacksmith didn't notify me of) was that my weapon will literally disappear if extraction fails. (no warning...just..breaks...)
You can call this a noob mistake or karma or whatever. Just wanted to share this for laughs or for cries :p.
Have fun in game! I can't put in any more money for a new weapon and I doubt GM's will listen to me whine about things "I didn't know".
I guess my point is: I really wish this game was accessible to people who don't like to read but really really like to hurt things O_O.
<3 Much love and enjoy PVP
