    Well, I'd been reading all the posts but thought I'd try opening a chest anyway. It took about 900 of the special essence to open the one chest. I received the schematic, one pink item, one blue item, and some coins.

    Then ran it where another group member spent 800 essence to do the same thing. Two blue items and some coins.

    What a waste of time and effort.

    I am really curious how much extra time did it take on the second run? How many essences (or runs) did you need to spend in total to get that first useless rune fragment? You are the only player I know who has gotten a rune from playing the game and seemingly not purchased essences via andermant.

    How many runs did you do? How many essences did you use? What class, dmg, etc?

    Sorry for the many questions, but I don't understand how you could spend presumably 110 essences and open (fatal?) chest. What skills/dmg/crit would allow you to do that? How much extra time did you spend damaging the seal? I.e. if you used the highest dps you could, how time could you save?

    I wont say the essentials but you kill it on painfull since it has less hp.
    And it took 4 minutes ( if you think hard about it you understand why im not writing how i killed it and why it tooj 4 mins instead of 20 sec like normally)

    Fair enough, but if you could open the chest on painful in 20 seconds, you must have a high enough dps that the average player would probably take about 20 minutes with your method. (gross approximation w/o considering classes and such I know). My point is, your method is not what the devs intended, is not feasible for average players, and therefore does not absolve BP from the other point I was making above. That is, these runes are inaccessible to the average free to play player.

    34k dmg its not that high so i dont think i made a miracle

    When you compare that with my 6k-7k dmg... I would say it is kind of high.
    For me from the first 30 seconds of dealing dmg to the chest, I understood it would be impossible to do it even with all the essence I was given. Either the developers wanted a group of 4 of the same class + 1 person who wants that rune part or they made it for high end players.

    How do you expect to create further hatred between classes ... except forcing them to play together ... so even those who are not aware of the OPness of some classes can see it in action. Then the fights are getting bigger and bigger.
    What are you talking about dude?
    It took me 700 essences per chest in a group of two (SW+me)
    I was farming essences and there were times when I didn't get a single drop for more than 4-5 runs ... and then when i get them it was 1x 5 essences drop per run.
    In that pace I can collect enough essences for one chest probably in year 2079.
    Sure ... I can use Dragan's laser, Q9 buff (if actually working with essences), Lightnings, Black Knights and other set buffs and waiting for the cooldowns and starting all over again ... that way I can probably finish one run by the time Santa Claus climbs down my chimney ... BUT that is not the intentional way of playing.

    errm sorry. I would not sound rude or arrogant.
    Could someone give me a tangible meaning to have this event at least for one run ( curiosity apart ).

    Are those runes worst than the block runes over weapons?
    Did I miss something special from it? (really, because I'm not able to figure out the purpose of those runes )

    I play a SW.
    I get runes for groupskills that are not that big a deal.
    I need to farm special essences that take a slot in my inv and drop scarsely.
    Runefragmentdrops are not guaranteed and when i craft a rune i get a random one out of 3.
    Runes can only be placed in a belt and take the place of more important runes (any rune in any itemslot with any effect would be more important if you ask me).

    I have to be honest, i haven't even tried 1 run. There was just no incentive at all to get me to play this.
    I mean... the idea of this event is great. 1 of each class is needed. You have to play in groups. You have to cooperate (1 opens chest, the others defend). It is just not worthwhile.... at all.

    For this event to be fun and worthwile...
    Ditch the essences but keep the 'only 1 class type can open the chest' idea.
    Keep the random dropchance for fragments (if needed even lower it a bit), but introduce a progress bar (like in materi storm) with runefragments and at the end 1 (group)runebag that ensures players to leave with at least 1 (lowest tier) rune. Maybe add some other small rewards as well.
    Now return this event every 1 or 2 months.
    Introduce group runes for all 9 group effects.
    Introduce a third row of slots on every items in which group runes can be placed (if you don't, group runes are just not worth it, unless players dont have enough other runes.)
    After having introduced these additional grouprune slots, make sure each runetype can be placed in a different item. i.e. runetype 1 only in amulet, runetype 2 only in belt, runetype 3 only in ring etc.....
    (oh i forget, you still need to change or appoint certain groupeffects to other skills (middle 3 effects, especially for mages) and shorten the cooldown times (last 3 effects).

    Maybe if ALL of these changes would be introduced, it might interest me in playing this event and it could actually be fun.

    BP: but how to make money?

    Well, if you make good events, we might actually decide to take another premium, or buy more ander. And oh well, if the event is good and you ditch the essences, we might forgive you for selling buffitems at the shop that give increased runefragment drops. You ll think of something, you re smart enough right?

    So in this event dwarves and rangers were more equal than the rest. Ranger could kill the chest with literally 0 ess using adrenaline lightnings, or a minimal amount with wolves, while the dwarf could just pop some turrets... great design. Good thing the rewards were trash so I didn't bother playing the event.

    Not exactly zero if you want to not play till Christmass. Every turret need 5 ess. And with my dps I spent about 350-370 ess to open the chest. Stupid event design for now.

    Easy going event,i played the event alone and find usefull the class colour coding for the chest,ademand price for essence was ok couse everything i purchased was with ademant obtained clearing the map wich was a good deal.i allways try to have the buff when when breaking the seal to save the essence use and i end up with 6 or 7 runes wich are the same type.i wasnt bothered with randomness of the class chests couse every run i had the sentinel chest to open ...looking forward for next one!

    were you high or drunk when you wrote this or bp pays you to come here and say that? When 99/100 players call that the worst event in the history of dso, you cannot come here and call this event nice and that you are looking forward for the next time it comes. You have quite the nerve son and i doubt you even know anything about this game or games in general, otherwise you would not have the audacity to call this crap event good

    Nah ... they just don't understand ...
    No dude ... you are quite misinformed.
    You have probably got 6-7 fragments not runes. That is why they are all of same type. Because as far as I know ... one class chest is always dropping a same fragment ... and you were playing solo which means you could never get the other fragments. Your 6-7 fragments are useless since you need 3 more different fragments to craft one rune ... which you can obtain only from the other classes' chests.
    There you go ... you have no deal at all ... your bought essences were not worth the andermant price ... because you don't have a single rune.
