    Here my feedback (and I know some players think the same because I chat with them)

    Curse of the Black Knights - Return of Dragan (Dragan Event) -
    Not sure if I will finish because:
    the drop red pearls is low,
    my DK is now a bit weak (after CE), before CE I could do the Dragan Salon in infernal 6
    the set does not attract me, old set was amazing

    Spring Festival
    the set does not attract me, probably I will do just to try to get the pet

    Full Moon
    one event for draken, yes I can do it

    Desert of Essences
    useless set, good only for some ess and ingredients to create essences, obviously need to be done in group because the OP boss

    New Moon
    time ago this was a MUST event, where players were really attracted and try to farm the set, now I skip it (and I'm not the only one)

    Terrifying Shadows - A New Era (Sargon Event)
    that's the only way to farm Mortis entrances, so I will do it, hoping the part 4 of the cube will drop more often

    Totally agree.

    The absence of decent sets, which could make any difference, collapsed my residual interest in the events.

    If you combine this with the fact that, once your character reaches a certain degree of growth, further significant progress is only obtained by spending tons of money at the jeweler or by farming and dusting gems for the next 10 years, it seems to me that the game has burst its lowest level of interest ever.

    At least if you have a worth drop of runes in the event maps, you could sacrifice playing them to get those. Instead, at least as far as I'm concerned, there is practically no trace of them anyore (in any map), not only of green or blue runes but not even white ones.

    Well done really.

    boring & recycled events once again .. will we ever get a BRAND NEW & FUN EVENT at all? i miss old Sargon when each event was totally different and had amazing rewards and it was FUN! i am still waiting for an apology to the entire community for ruining your game and the player's game experience

    The events are for the new players that persist with the game. The Uniques from all these events are now worthless if you have grinded correctly.
    Totally agree with Cogix.
    Sorry [EDIT] , Drakensang was a good game it had it's faults but you could always see what you were working towards and progressing too.
    Dark Legacy is not a good game , only thing left for most end game players is to Grind Rune and Shiny Dust.
    That gets boring fast.
    Sorry Dark Legacy is just Crapola and you should take the Drakensang part of the name out of it at least that was decent.

    As far as I see, there is no evidence that they invest on the game anymore. And I will be glad to be wrong, in case.

    DL was probably implemented long ago, then interrupted, then released among lot of difficulties just in order to convince people that DSO is still alive and push them to spend cosiderable amount of money in order to craft terrific gems... for the last time.

    Even PW Gorga I don't think it's a development of the latest times, in fact it was present within the game db for years. And if I'm not mistaken, this seems to me maybe the most "consistent" thing remaining in 2021 roadmap.

    I am under no illusion that any truly-new event will happen anymore, at least for what most of us mean by the word "new". Although I must admit that the fortress of Sargon is almost a masterpiece of aesthetics (but again I suppose it could have been created long ago) despite the event being a real rubbish, and so is the boss Sargon as such.

    Pparaphrasing what some detractors of Darwinian theory argue, here is missing the link between some things done unquestionably well and others done just as badly. Unfortunately, the latter are also the most recent to be born.

    I think it's a 50% game made in archaic times and 50% taken by other developers with all the problems and bugs that follow!

    Maybe interns, maybe change of people.

    I didn't even think the CE would come out at some point I saw the game close without announcement.

    Just my thoughts but I hope they keep the commitments made on the roadmap.

    Returning to the events I will only play those that are not a robbery and are within the reach of my class the rest is what it is and I skip it.

    For sure full moon if they don't ruin it, the sets are useless, the prizes are worth nothing but it's also true that if you want it doesn't take much time and here the group helps but doesn't count that much.

    The other event and the last is that of Sargon, I am interested in creating the old set, especially the damage set while armor, helmet and shoulder straps less, but perhaps it can be used if it has good values with other unique ones.

    I finished the Spring Festival event, but only for 2 reasons:

    1) I was going to the boss rooms for the ingredients,

    2) I had no problem getting into the others otherwise I would have skipped it, the base event consumes too many essences, too many mobs, the only solution would be the case, only the bosses should request special essences.

    Essences of the desert

    I took a ruthless ride and remembered why I skipped this event:
    1) the crystalline dew does not fall on the first lap, on the second practically nothing and my interest in this event has already faded The DK has a limited farm speed and takes too long, as usual you didn't even make an effort to check these things with all classes.

    2) The bosses do damage from oneshot, a Dk in any case cannot avoid them even here no balancing it is obvious that if you play at a distance this will not be a problem including the summons used as a shield and above all far from you where otherwise you would have the blast damage.

    The dragan event is still as grindy as it was in the past, what are you talking about? And no meaning full improvements have been done.
    The drop rate of red pearls is as bad as always.

    I'll echo what others have said in that the progress rewards are poor across the board for most events save for maybe Dragan.

    Dragan: Initial rewards from quests are good but I also have an issue with the scroll dropping. As always red pearl drops are [EDIT] poor.

    Full Moon: Do it for the Draken only and is quickly completed.

    New Moon: Have skipped this event for a long while. This was/is the red headed step child of the Moon events. I apologize in advance if you happen to be a red headed step child.

    Spring Festival: If you enjoy burning up essence this event is for you. Pet/Mount drops are poor and to add insult we are provided garbage progress rewards: 9,000 GOP's, 50 Shiny Dust etc. (Really 9k gop's? What is that that one pink item or 2 blue items?)

    Desert of Essence: Tried it out after it was brought back and another fail.

    Terrifying Shadows: The drop rate for Part#4 is suspect as others drop with greater frequency. I ran out of quests at level 67 and will have to wait on this event to roll around so I can collect more. No way in hell I'm grinding out 30 + levels.

    I'll add that it must be incredibly difficult for new players to progress along. I'm sure some make it to mid 20's and delete the game but I can't say I blame them for doing so.

    The festive eggs in brigavik drop items at level one, when brigavik at bloodshed is level 140.

    Spring Festival: what a great design where the fastest and most efficient way to finish the event is to NOT play the event.

    Since all Lairs have event boss (sentinel), and PW have 2, just farm bosses for ingredients and with lair and you will eventually finish the event. Running the map is pointless except to get pets.

    If it WAS necessary to play the event, then I would say the design of the map is ridiculous and intended only to burn so much essence that we can't farm enough and need to purchase. I already spent around 2k andermant and wasted 5k+ essence per round before I realized I could just farm lairs and spend 200 per round...

    Rewards are mostly useless except for lockpicks and the 4 trapezoid gems. Still, those rewards are fine only considering the alternative way to finish the event quickly through lairs, and being able to farm at least merciless difficulty.

    I wouldn't complain that we have a fast way to finish the event.
    Finally an event that is really worth doing.

    Do it for _what?_ draken? There is so little in the time line that it is not worth the effort spent.
    You'd be better off following around a rich wall street democrat for a week in the hopes that he'll drop a few pennies you can pick up.

    Reality is that with the draken price changes at Knob, they need to at least add another "0" to each amount of draken on the progress bar. Then I _might_ think it's worth the time and effort to do. God knows that the non-blood "rewards" are a complete waste of time and effort.

    Reality is, after buying all mounts and cosmetics, draken hold no value anymore. I use mine to buy amphora keys or lair passages... why buy runes, when you can drop more running the maps, and much faster than farming the ridiculous 6K for just one white rune?

    Reality is, most event rewards are useless... the previous grand prizes of royal gems, what they mean now? Royals are equivalent to pre-CE radiant gems... they should give imperials as the final reward...

    Things that still hold some value: anders, lockpicks, crescerites, wisdom, multitools.

    Its like talk about the same , when everybody knows already.
    As we can see dso gets positive feedbacks on spring event cause progress is gaven by free and easy.
    Dragan gets bad feedback cause progress dont flow.
    Moon events pff

    Spring event its easier as just a manner to hide all the bad stuff behind the game. So many old and new bugs , skills messed up all around.

    So my feedback is sssgame
