Forum, chat & wiki usage
Q: How can I easily address/mention users or threads?
Use the '@' to mention any registered users. There is even a drop down showing in the forum.
Except for the dropdown, this also works in chat.
To reference certain threads, use '##' and start typing the name. A dropdown will show up to 5 threads which fit that match. Same as with '@', it works in chat just without the dropdown.
Q: Where can I enter my IGN and/or Shop Code?
It's in the User Control Panel (UCP, at the top on the right, the dropdown behind the user name) -> Edit Profile (on the left) -> Additional information
Q: How can I change the forum theme?
First option: There is a layout switcher at the bottom of the page.
Though, for whatever reason, it doesnt always work.
Second option: User Control Panel (UCP) -> Edit Options (on the left) -> The theme switcher is on the bottom right. This one always works.
Q: How can I change the thread layout?
default view (horizontal view):
classic view (vertical profile):

Q: How can I link to my deck easily?

Q: What the hell is that 5fde8ca code in the above answer?
Go to your binder, open or create a deck with all the 12 cards. Then you can touch the Click to Create Code button on the upper right in the binder. Your deck now got uploaded to the Nexon database and website and you can show your deck around with full credits given
The link to use the code is: http://devcat.nexon.com/duel/us/deck?
Just put your code after the question mark and voilá!
The [deck] thingy from above does exactly that for you, when you use that.
Q: Where can I look up cards infos?
Check our Card Discussion Forum for specific cards and and user opinions.
If you can't find the card you are looking for, just open a thread for it and ask what you want to know. Please follow these instructions for that.
Also, since July 2016 Nexon finally provided an own solution for the card search: http://devcat.nexon.com/duel/us/cards/search/index.html?query=
Q: Where can I look up card prices?
There are no complete price lists as of now.
But we have a column for minimum and maximum prices for the better daily rotation mutants here: thread link.
You can further check the Trading Forum - especially the stickied threads - for prices. Open a new thread there if you have a specific of card prices you want to know.
If it's only about single card prices, you might try the Shoutbox and ask around there.
Q: Where do I go to trade cards, [gift] gems and [gift] boosters?
We have a Trading Forumfor that, the Trading widget (the dollar sign at the top) and the shoutbox/chat.
PC and emulator questions:
Q: Is there a PC client?
Yes, there is, but it's still Korean players only. That means you need a Korean account to be able to log on the client. So this option is only viable if your are new and or want to start new, since you will need a (new) Korean account. Check this reddit thread, how to do that.
