Vagabond Event: Shameless stealing of Legend’s knowledge

While I quitted 9Dragons and am prepearing everything for a lawsuit against Acclaim, I noticed a few things.

1st of all, the dozend promotions and Off Sales:
9Dragons will die soon (sooner than Acclaim’s “soon”). Those promotions and Off Sales are just to make as much money as possible, before closing 9Dragons. Hermit and Fugen can see pretty clear that 9Dragons is dying. But they would be stupid if they would tell it, no? They would lose faster people and more money. So of course, they tell all the time, that 9Dragons is populated, that it is one of the best games, and that there are right now less people online because of “GameGuard”…

I know for a fact that Acclaim’s contract with Indy21 will end on September 2010. And I really doubt that Acclaim will extend it.

So, dear people… Go an buy as many Item Mall items as possible. Soon (sooner than Acclaim’s “soon”) you will lose everything again.

And 2nd, the really stupid Vagabond Event:
Seriously… Even I made better events in the name of the meanwhile nonexistent Vagabond Army. The prizes weren’t so good like “clanskills”, but at least the participants weren’t bored. Dozend of collection quests, where the clanless warriors need help from the clanmembers of The Land. If you aren’t like Vagabond Sword, which is VGM and got dozend of “friends”, you will not be able to do it.

The most funny thing is the “Vagabond Quiz”. They had the guts to create that quiz while taking a look on my Vagabond Guide, my posts, and my Vagabond Army forum. But they didn’t let me participate. Patience… They will regret it soon enough…

However; Let us take a look on some parts of this shameless and so-called quiz:

Other than The Vagabond himself, who was the first vagabond to set foot in The Land and remain a vagabond to this day?

According to The Hermit (and only to The Hermit), The Hermit was the first Vagabond to set foot in The Land. But that’s a lie. The Vagabond path is known for it hard and harsh way. Of course The Hermit wants to be one of those toff guys. But fact is, he never was a player. He was always just a GM. He never went trough the true path of a clanless warrior. Yeah, sure, GMs are clanless characters. But does this simple fact make them to a true vagabond? Of course not.

According to legend, The Vagabond has a love interest. Who is it? *

What pieces of shit they are…

What patch introduced the 4-pocket Wan Daye Vagabond Wardrobe? *

If we take a look on my Vagabond Guide, we can see the following line:
Since the big patch 63 there are nice Wan Daye clothes with 4 pockets, which give nice defence.

Elixirs are important for creating a more powerful vagabond character. What is the maximum bonus to one stat you can receive from elixirs? *

If we take a look on my Vagabond Guide, we can see the following line:
You can maximize each elixir level, until you got +26 on each attribute.

What is considered the most important stat for a vagabond? *

If we take a look on my Vagabond Guide, we can see the following line:
Strength is the most important for Vagabonds. The sooner a Vagabond maxed his strength, the better. Strength gives damage and defence, which a Vagabond really need a lot.

What is considered the least important stat for a vagabond? *

If we take a look on my Vagabond Guide, we can see the following line:
Wisdom is absolutely not needed as Vagabond. Wisdom gives chi kung damage, chi kung attack rating, chi kung defence and chi kung dodge. Just chi kung artists need these. Since Vagabonds don’t have any chi kung techniques, it is recommended to have just the minimum of 8 chi points on wisdom, or maximum the wisdom requirement of karma relics.

What is the level requirement for the 100 Defense Set from the Cave Hawker? *

If we take a look on my Vagabond Guide, we can see the following line:
The level requirement for the 100 defence set is Five Dragons 4, for the 200 defence set is Five Dragons 8 and for the 400 defence set is Five Dragons 12.

Which mobs drop the Black Iron Trinket? *

If we take a look on my Vagabond Guide, we can see the following line:
Try to buy one as soon as possible or get one from the boss Knife of White Shadow which is on every startmap. He have a low chance to drop this item. In the Conqueror’s Cave, 1th floor, are 2 bosses, Blade of Black Shadow and Heavenly Claw of White Shadow, which can also drop this item.

What is the name and location of the mob that drops the Conqueror’s Trinket? *

If we take a look on my Vagabond Guide, we can see the following line:
There is only one boss in the Conqueror’s Cave which can drop that. The name is Dark Sword the Shadow Lord and he is in the 4th floor of the cave.

Which two clans can you learn lightfoot from? *

If we take a look on my Vagabond Guide, we can see the following line:
In Mount Yanmo, the map of the Heavenly Demon Clan, you will learn through one of the startquests the following techniques:
– Basic Demon Fists
– Basic Demon Saber
– Basic Demon Lightfoot
In Wu-Tang Shan, the map of the Wu-Tang Clan, you will learn through one of the startquests the following techniques:
– Basic Wu-Tang Fists
– Basic Wu-Tang Sword
– Basic Wu-Tang Lightfoot

What shoes should you be trying to obtain when you reach Raising Light 12? *

This is my favorite question. There is no “best shoes” for a vagabond. Every Vagabond likes to walk the path different. BUT if we take a look on my Vagabond Guide, we can see the following line, where I give the following advice:
On Raising Light 12 you will be also able to wear the Survivor of the Vault of Death’s Shoes. Try to buy those shoes with 2 slots.

What is the worst weapon a vagabond can use? *

If we take a look on my Vagabond Guide, we can see the following line:
Well, its hard to recommend a weapon for a Vagabond. Vagabonds just got basic skills. If I should recommend a weapon for the best skill, I would recomment Saber, Sword or Fists, because the basic clan techniques makes the most damage. But actually every basic skill is good.

The power of a Vagabond does not come from the skills, but from his equipment. Every weapon have assets and drawbacks. Some say, Sword and Saber are the best for grinding; Some say, Axe makes the most damage of all weapons, if it is high refined; Some say, Spear is the fastest to grind; Some say, Fists are the best for PvP; And some say, Polearm is the best for PvE & PvP, because of the stun rate on the Polearm mastery.

There are Vagabond players which like to use many different weapons, on every situation another weapon. But in my opinion a person should just focus oneself on one weapon. This gives enough space for refinement, searching and buying a good weapon, and more things. Otherwise you have to spend more money on different weapons, and this money could be used as a Vagabond for better things, for example for elixirs, for relics or for clothes. Vagabonds need the best items to keep up with other players.

So how you see, there is no best weapon. So just choose the weapon, which fits your character and your personality. And then, keep this weapon.

Everyone who says, there is a weapon which is the worst for a Vagabond, lies. And bracers are not real weapons. Period.

The Vagabonds have a secret symbol that is both a number and a letter. What is it and what does it signify? *

That was an invention from The Hermit on the first Vagabond Event. He started to say, the secret symbol of the vagabonds is 10. Also as symbol for this number, X. It signifies the 10th path and the 10th Dragon.

Many people on Bardo called me “Godfather of the vagabonds”. I don’t think, I am a godfather. But yes, I leaded the clanless warriors. I showed to The Land, what can be possible. Meanwhile, even the Vagabond Path is stained with money and greediness. But this doesn’t excuse the fact, that they made the most questions of this so-called quiz about my vagabond guide.

Some weeks ago, when Acclaim lost a lot of money through the hacking of the Item Mall, The Hermit was really pissed off, and he talked about karma. The karma would give those stealers a payback. But this will not happen… The price was set on 1 Coin, and the people payed the price. It’s simple as that.

However… Hermit talks about karma… This is arrogant. He steal my words and make them to his own. He cheat the players and lie to them, and he helps Fugen to do the same.

Karma, you say? You will meet soon your karma, Steven-Elliot Altman. Sooner than Acclaim’s “soon”.

  1. Well most of the players don’t realize 9D is dying… or they just don’t think at it.
    …and as DeviL said: “Hats off”

  2. Steven-Elliot Altman is so lame writer that he has to steal from players. 9dragons story is a translate from 9d Indy who have a true writer. He put stupid words like ‘ok’, ‘ grasshopper’ to the story.

  3. first they censor to attend the event, then steal your ideas. nice, very nice. I think we don’t need to debate more, is the limit of stupidity.

  4. Hermit is noob, I only can laugh when comes to what he do. He do all for money, even stealing from players, ideas, concepts, images and so on.

  5. Funny how Fugen didn’t answer my question directly when I ask him about refunding un-used IM items when 9D happens to go down. He only stated that they would only refund un-used coins … lolz.. It means that if you buy alot of IM stuffs like kgs, pills, premium packages … etc… Then 9D goes down. You will lose all of that.

    Anyway, somehow they deleted that post now … lolz …

    Something is fishy, and they are trying to hide it …

  6. Well MoSai, you know how Acclaim is, they erase everything they don’t like or everythibng that they don’t have answers. It is a fact that Indy21 license will end this year and Indy21 will raise the payment or will give the game to other company.

  7. Don’t worry about people stealing your ideas. If your ideas are any good, you’ll have to ram them down people’s throats. Anyway is not normal for a man with Faculty in writing.

  8. Somebody once said : “A thief passes for a gentleman when stealing has made him rich”… apply to this ? I think yes.

  9. How idiot you can be as a writer to start steal ideas from players and endorse them like his and above all he stopped you to don’t go to this event. Maybe that is why he oppose for you to go to this event.

  10. Challenges make you discover things about yourself that you never really knew. They’re what make the instrument stretch- what make you go beyond the norm and in this stuation, makes you do things to be ashame off.

  11. All learning begins with the simple phrase, “I don’t know”.I agree with the rest, is lame what Hermit did, this shows he is not prepared from professional point of view.

  12. I dunno why i bought 90 day premiuns 2 months ago(=.=), i knew it already wouldn’t used .DAM ACCLAIM so manipulative with they promotions! i Want travel machine.
