As a gamer, imagine having various game accounts, currencies, D&D guides, trading cards, tabletop figurines and board games listed on a single website. Imagine being able to list your items completely free of charge in a secure scammer-free environment?
Hopefully, soon your dreams can become true as new Kickstarter project launched recently promises to bring exchange between players onto next-level. MMOAUCTIONS.com is an online marketplace dedicated to gamers developed by a group of developers from Poland and UK. In works since early 2016 the project has seen a lot of changes but after reaching a final, conclusive, version team decided to launch their Kickstarter campaign.
Guys at mmoauctions.com offer few safety solutions including a six-step verification process will not only confirm that you are trading with a real human being but also will filter off all fake, VPN and TOR accounts. Their Scamkiller system is a massive, public-access, database that gathers information about online fraudsters from various forums and websites. With daily updates, this system will get even more effective as the website grows.
Another feature that is rare on such websites is a very slick and clean design. You will find no pointless flair and excess flashiness, the layout is responsive and simple and navigation very intuitive, created to reduce clicks required to perform the desired action. What is more, it can adjust to any resolution and window shape making it easy to use on a wide variety of devices. Guys at mmoauctions.com also promise us a fully functional mobile app that will grant you access to your purchases and listings wherever you are.
The ease and intuitiveness of adding your offers really caught our attention. It took us about one minute to create a listing from a scratch and managing our deals turned out as easy as putting them up. Easy-to-use and interesting set of vendor tools (that will expand in the future) make the entire ordeal even smoother, Scamkiller database, notification and message system, built-in chat and category subscription - all contribute towards an overall pleasant experience.
Even tho it’s their debut on Kickstarter, the team behind the project sure knows how to make things appealing. Their Kickstarter page is well designed and loaded with well-designed infographics. The reward system is interesting, apart from premium account time and listing promotion they offer each pledge level a different profile theme when the site launches. Stretch goals seem realistic and entire campaign is very informative and to the point.
“Growth itself might pose quite a challenge. Should our project prove to become a great success gaining massive traffic on the website, we will need to rapidly adjust to the situation which means not only upgrading servers but also hiring more staff members to provide a high-quality customers support.”
So if you are hoping for a proper gaming marketplace, mmoauctions.com should land on your radar sooner than later!
MMOAUCTIONS.COM will launch on Kickstarter™ on March the 1st 2018! - YouTube
Assassin is a Jin-only class capable of dealing terrifying amounts of damage in huge bursts. Relying mostly on combo chains and environment awareness it requires a skilled player to be handled properly. Combat relies heavily on stealth and keeping up your poison stacks. Today we’ll be focusing on lightning build.
Let's talk items first as Lightning Build is really gear dependant. There are three items that stack well together and are a staple of every good assassin DPS build. Divine Dragon Bracelet greatly increases damage when using Fighting Spirit, attack speed of Heart Stab while under Divine Dragon effect (with additional 475% damage bonus on hit). Holy Fire Soul Badge and Revelation Mystic Badge synergize with the bracelet extremely well. Holy Fire will decrease cooldown of Heart Stab upon using Fighting Spirit cooldown, Revelation Badge will trigger Inner Chant for 10 seconds when using Fighting Spirit which will grant even more attack power bonus to successful heart stab (200%).
This setup is build for PVE. So if you want to switch to PVP there will be some changes. For pvp scenarios you want Knockdown on your Shadow Slash. Under “F” instead of Lightning Pierce you would pick Close Shave. Daze on your Decoy, Knockdown on Shadow Drain and Stun on your Lightning Rod.
Open combat with Choke Bomb then press V for your Fighting Spirit buff and hold RMB for next 10 seconds. Once the buff is off, continue with standard rotation of RMB -> F -> 4. And that’s pretty much it. Remember to use Shadow Drain on every cooldown.
Skeleton builds have been a thing for a while now. Thanks to the steady damage output and survivability and cheap items this setup is often suggested for new players. Skeletonmancer also has lots of room for modification in it’s gem and passive tree setup so you can tailor the experience in your own play while the core gameplay remains pretty much the same. Core Items/Gems
This build became viable with addition of Minion Speed Support, when combined with Queen’s Escape sword our melee minions become fast enough to grant you a smooth gameplay. Making Skeletons your pet-of-choice has its limit when it comes to the numbers, since they are pretty fragile you want as many of them as possible, you can fix that problem by using Army of Bones jewels (3 or even 4), each jewel will increase your skeleton cap by 2. Leveling up Playing as summoner really begins at level 38 when you can equip Queens Escape before that basically anything goes, starting off with Freezing Pulse and Fire Trap and switching to Firestorm and Flame Totem. On level 27 you can equip Queen's Decree lower-grade of Queens Escape but using this version will require you to use Minion Speed Support to make it at least slightly less annoying. When it comes to bandits - spare Oak. Ascendancy Points To provide yourself with instant buff when it comes to clearspeed put two first points in Mistress of Sacrifice. Second on the list should be Commander of Darkness which will increase our Cast Speed and provide extra survivability. Spirit Eater should be our next pick, since in our tree we won't be focusing on cast speed we are compensating this fact with Spirit Eater passive. Gearing Grip of the Council (gloves) - minion movement speed decrease is not noticable with Minion Speed Support and Queen’s Escape but minion damage bonus + cold resistances makes this an obvious top pick for any melee minion build.
This build does not have to be focused on legendaries. When gearing up follow basic rules - pick items with high life and energy shield. Since we’ll be getting lots of resistances from our passive tree you don’t have to focus your gear on it.
Only decent glove enchant for this build is Of the Grave which procs off your minion kills. For boot enchant pick life and mana regen.
Only mandatory enchantment is the helmet one. Look for one that has effect summoning 2 additional Skeleton Warriors per cast. Linking This setup really needs a single 6L items, preferably Queen’s Escape. Most popular linking being Summon Skeleton linked with Minion Damage, Melee Splash, Minion Speed, Melee Physical Damage, Multistrike.
Rest of the build requires 3L at maximum, with Ball Lightning being linked with GMP. Discipline and Clarity unlinked. Secondly you want to link your Hatred aura with Generosity and Flame Dash with Faster Casting.
For Raise Spectre you want a 3L with Increased AoE and Increased Duration.
With that covered you have some wiggle-room left for Vaal skills of your choosing. Don’t forget to put a Desecrate and Flesh Offering somewhere (no need to link them tho). Skill Tree
If you are a new player to Lineage 2 the skill bar and character control might seem little outdated and odd, fortunately enough with “Helios” expansion, players have been introduced with the ability to create various macros that greatly enhance their abilities.
It doesn’t matter if you are a healer, raider, pvp-er or you want to buy lineage 2 adena – everyone uses macros.
To enter a Lineage 2 Macro creation menu press Alt+R. To create new macro select “Add”, a new window will pop-out where you can input 12 lines of macro commands, choose a name and icon for your macro.
Full list of LineAge 2 macro commands can be found on the official website
Looping Lineage 2 macros
Macros in Lineage 2 can be looped which means that you are basically limited by your own imagination. Loop macros will keep repeating themselves until you choose otherwise. To loop a macro simply right click on the macro icon on your taskbar, looped macro icon will have a “shine” animation on it, to stop the loop just right click the icon again.
So now that we are past the basic macros and using them to spam your l2 adena and l2 itemsspam we can now continue to use them for a little bit more advanced things like levelling and maintaining buffs.
So, you are a level 24 Elf Wizard and you are grinding in Windy Mill. It’s a very good location since it does not have real obstacles and has only two types of mobs making it even easier. You can create such macro
Now just put the macro on your bar, right click it and enjoy the 8 levels completely AFK.
Let’s try something more advanced now. You are a lvl 51 dwarf fighter and need to reach lvl 57 but you really want to do it AFK and without dying. So you go to Sea of Spores and create macro as follows:
Those were the examples of simple macros you can use to painlessly grind some levels. But there are way more uses than that.
Looping buffs: Sonata Example
So you’re playing ISS, keeping track on sonatas might be annoying during long raids, help yourself with macro as such:
Replace the [name of toon] with the name of the toon you will follow. The /target is put twice to set your character into follow mode, and the four minute delay makes you forget about keeping track of the buff timers.
One of the most important Lineage 2 macro commands you will use is /delay, delay forces a pause between each command so that they won’t stack upon one another so they can actually work. Using delay properly is key to creating a good macro.
means that there will be a one second delay before next command commences.
works same way as using a skill from Fx bar with ctrl pressed, just without having ctrl pressed :D
It’s a notrmal /attack with ctrl pressed in.
/useshortcut A B
presses a “button” on one of your tabs, “A” is the number of the tab, and “B” is the “F”. So for example you want to create a quick equip lineage 2 macro, so you put on your 6th tab: Helmet under F1, Chest under F2, gloves under F3, shoes under F4, weapon under F5 – you can now equip them all from any tab in just one click by creating macro as such:
/target %self with /useskill<skillname>
great tool for self-heals and self-buffs

Alchemy is one of the most vital Elder Scrolls Online trading skill. Developing it is a must for any dungeon runner and Cyrodilll dweller. Created potions and poisons can give a great boost to your defenses, damage, recover resources or drain resources from your enemy. What is more mastering alchemy tree will make the mixtures you use more potent and last longer.
Elder Scrolls Online Alchemy GuideCreation
Potion and poisons are a result of mixing solvents (potions) or oils (poisons) with reagents that add various properties to the created substance.
To create a mixture you need at least two reagents that share a common effect. For example Columbine and Corn Flower both share “Restore Health” effect and mixed together will result in a tincture that restores health. Each reagent has four different properties to be discovered via experimentation. Fortunately enough the possible effects list is not long so chances of actually making a discovery is high.
The solvent tier used is responsible for the level requirement (and the strength) of the potion. Crafting potions will grant you alchemy inspiration that will unlock more and more alchemy related traits including Solvent Proficiency that unlocks higher grade potions. Improving your alchemy even further unlocks Laboratory Use perk that allows you to mix three reagents to craft your potions vastly increasing the variety of potions you can craft.
Elder Scrolls Online - Reagents
Currently there are 26 alchemy reagents spread all around Tamriel. Most of them are gatherable plants and herbs but some require you to kill certain type of enemy (for example Beetle Scuttle drops from thunderbugs and shalks)
Elder Scrolls Online - Solvents
Each potion requires a solvent, which is nothing more but a vial of purified water. High grade solvents require additional ranks in Solvent Proficiency perk. The grade of solvent adjust to the zone level. You can find them in:
Pure water spots - look for a small whirlpools in bodies of water, those are harvestable for water
Water Skins - small leather sacks found in buildings and around crates and barrels
Bottles: Small bottles found commonly inside buildings and on shelves. Apart from yielding solvent you can also loot consumable beverages from them
Oils and Poisons
Just as potions require solvents, poisons require oils. The scaling is pretty much the same and requires Solvent Proficiency to enhance the tiers of the poisons. But while solvents can be found commonly in the world oils are found in combat and drop commonly in dungeons. Alternatively you can drop them from from undead and daedra.
Your first focus should be unlocking all four traits on the reagents first. You will earn extra amount of inspiration each time you discover a reagent property.
Invest points in Solvent Proficiency first, higher grade potions grant more inspiration experience
When leveling alchemy use only two reagents, even with three unlocked, as there is no difference in inspiration gain
It may be best to not use certain reagents during the leveling process and you will need them for best quality potions later on so safe your Columbines, Mountain Flowers and Namira’s Rot!
When going for a supply run turn off grass in the settings, this will make harvesting herbs so much easier!
If you still didn’t touch Arche Age for one reason or another, either because of big ArcheAge gold sellermarket or because of pay-2-win mechanics, with the launch of new servers that limited the freemium services perhaps now is the time to finally get yourself immersed in this huge MMO.
There are overall 6 different races in ArcheAge, three for each faction:
Nuian races: Nuians, Elves, Dwarves
Haranya races: Firran, Harani, Warborn
So, which race to pick? Just keep reading ArcheAge guide. It depends what path you want to take, let’s take a look at their passives.
Nuians – Double the time of stat increase after death, construction time reduce by 30%
Chin Sol Shrapnel Trap Build revolves around a single Path of Exile item a Chin Sol bow and its unique property – 100% increased bow damage in close range.
Path of Exile Guide Build
Now, here is the Path of Exile Guide build trick – the “close range” is not determined by how close your bow-wielding character is to the enemy but how close source of arrow is to the enemy, in short – you do not have to be the source of the damage. Now, what else shoots arrows that is not a player? Shrapnel Shot supported by trap support or “Trapnel”.
The concept is really simple – you throw a trap at mobs and they die. Path of exile build is really simple and not too expensive (entire build can close at around 10C). The build synergizes strongly with Point Blank keystone, but before you get there you should be focusing around elemental damage, life and critical strike chance, after you have those basics covered you want to grab all your trap passives working your way towards the point blank grabbing the acrobatics along the way. Saboteur ascendancy provides many great passives and tools for trap-based builds so it’s an obvious choice here.
Path of Exile Guide Build: Chin Sol Shrapnel Traps Chon Sol is obviously not the only epic item on our list. If you want to buy PoE orbs or items we recommend Path of Exile tradeforums. Here is a short list of items making this build more effective and their average PoE Market prices:
A melee DPS with a boss lockdown skill, while boss is held by a destroyer everyone in the party can spam their highest hitting skills, additional utility in protecting party members from taking
Ranged DPS with long team i-frame and projectile shield. Can rescue KOed team members.
Melee dps, very versatile, one of the best utility classes – DPS team buffs, anti-missile shield, stealth party i-frame, rescue, can stealth their party through a group of NPC’s unnoticed.
Ranged support/healer with very potent AoE heals, mass resurrection, projectile shield, short i-frame, boss lockdown and moderately effective taunt on their pet.
Melee dps with boss lockdown, group i-frame
Ranged DPS with a special buff that allows everyone in party use a special big-damage skill.
Mixed (melee+ranged but leaning towards melee), good party healing and better mass resurrection than Warlock (which has to sacrifice a pet to do this)
Ranking in terms of Utility:
Top party offensive buff classes, which are:
Is a clear winner here, thanks to his Soulburn that give party members a nice DPS buff but also lets everyone use a special skill dealing huge damage.
Kung Fu Master and Assassinthose
Two are replaceable since both have a Fighting Spirit buff but having both of them is even better making the two split the skill cooldown in half. Kung Fu Master might have a slight edge over Assassin thanks to more DPS buffs.
Destroyer and Blade Dancer
One of the two is a MUST HAVE in any good party composition due to boss lockdown which allows players to use their highest bursting skills with no fear of taking damage.
In our next Blade and Soul tier list we will look at PVP utility and tier down best classes for some player vs player action.
