    Snowbunnie! For spellweavers q7 set makes them unstoppable in pvp and pve and building your character is much easier now that you can purchase PW unique items for materi frags. I would give it a try.

    This thread mustn't die! One post, three questions.
    1. How to kill in PvP a DK that is uber tank and only escapes around the arena?
    2. How to kill in PvP a dwarf that uses "tactical" turrets to run around one spot and heal?
    3. How to kill in PvP a ranger that uses Q7 set (with that new 2h) and spams EA while continuing to flee?

    So Guru's a few questions
    1 Do you think DSO will ever nerf Mechs ?
    2 Do you think PW's should go back to similar to level 50 PW's ?? My point here is they can remove the Uniques from anyone under 55 still they can also remove the Uniques from any group doing boss runs with players under 55 in them
    As PW's stand now newer end game players are being punished by the minority of twinks in the game
    If you are not a mech cash player or have no life outside of dwarfensang you have got no chance of getting Infernal runs
    3 When will they implement Experience for all players thus removing the twink issue level 20 Knights with 20k+ Health Level 20 Rangers with 1800 Damage etc etc
    4 How long before the game is played 100% by mechs ?? Agathon server I would say is at 60% already
    Feel free to answer or not :)


    If you do not play a Mech the game has gotten worse :)
    And yeah it is not worth playing :p

    You can't. The q7 set was bugged though ... now it is working as intended (at least that is what the patchnotes say).
    I thought after R155 the arena was completely broken ... and the game has hit the bottom. Wow ... they proved me wrong ... now the arena is even more broken and that is because wannabe devs and designers who are not even playing the game are making it.
    How can you kill 150K HP regenerating tank with infinite stuns?
    How can you kill 30K base damage and 4.00 attack speed midget (on 2H)?
    As for the rangers and mages ... they are all at the starting point now ... since they can't exploit the q7 bug anymore.

    Good is not the right term.
    Open your eyes ... or should I say ... Open your Wallet.

    Short answer.

    Joke answer: Make a toon just like them and beat them at their own game.
    Semi-serious answer:
    1. Never waste low damage spam sills like magic missile or hunting arrow since the rage they get from the hit will let them heal for more than they'll be damaged. Carefully use stuns while considering their stun breaks to land a well planned chains can also help have a total damage greater than 0.
    2. It isn't as bad as it used to be, but it is still bad. It is very similar to #1, but a little easier since they don't generally have as much HP. The trick is staying outside the range of any mechanical turrets they have posted, but the good news is if they have mech turrets, that means less healing.
    3. It is a slower arrow, so with some sharp reflexes, it can be dodged. The important part is actually being close enough that you can see them so that you know when the arrow is coming. If you can't see them, you have a much harder job predicting the timing and direction. The other part that is important is having an escape skill ready to dodge with when they do a volley of the damn things.
    1. I think they will and it is going to be bad. If you think that DKs have complained bad at our various nerfings over the years, those will be nothing compared to the cries of the Mechs. The best opportunity they've had in ages was R185 since they were changing so much anyway, but they missed their chance choosing instead to make the problem worse than ever.
    2. No, I'm more in favor of a "gated" approach. I do think that the minimum level for PW access should be 40 or 45. From there, the avaliability of uniques should improve at each difficulty with the lower difficulty only having a limited selection. The added benifit of having fixed level gates to get into the PWs is that it would discourage twinks. But then, I'm also in favor of anything that discourages twinking. Beyond that though, the PWs were originally designed as end game content that was supposed to be a challenge for even the most dedicated groups. I remember standing around in Grimford for what felt like hours (5-10 min) looking for a team that could take it and you needed every class. I would love to see it go back to the day and age that grouping actually made a difference. The monsters had fixed (not scaled), so doing it solo meant that you had to work 5 times harder than a team. That is the way grouping should be... wow, how did this answer go from unique availability to "the good old days" ?... Ummm, next question.
    3. See the above for my general opinion of twinks. Over the years, I've suggested more than one "fix" for the twink disease, but they've ignored that sort of feedback in favor of stupid things that only one or two people have even mentioned, let alone discussed in depth. "Experience for all" is just a small part of the things they can do to fix the problem, but judging from that fact that they have done absolutely nothing tells me that they don't want to kill the goose that lays the golden egg. Twinks spend money to keep their twink edge over the other twinks (and make it easier to obliterate normal people trying out PvP for the first time), so killing twinks would be killing their profit. Imagine a cigarette company running an ad campaign about how smoking their product will give you lung cancer and is guaranteed to shave years off your life... it would be corporate suicide and would likely get people fired. "Bottom line above everything" should be their team slogan.
    4. I'd say just in time to nerf them all and either make them all pay insane amounts to make the character viable again or make them switch back to their old characters and spend money to bring them back up to competitive levels. Hell, it may even be part of their long range business plan/road map... not like we'd know since it's been ages since we've seen a road map. (P.S. There will always be at least my DK on Agathon, providing I don't rage quit.)
    Too bad it is taken in all the forms that I'd want. I don't feel like having to use some crazy mix of Russian, Greek, and Latin characters to make it work. It was the second "Doctor" themed name I thought of after DrHorrible. But I will say, I appreciate the double entendre/joke.

    @_Baragain_ & @trakilaki wow! you're still playing this game?! o_O
    I stopped for 3 months then comeback, seen level 55 & new gems :eek: then I turn off game, uninstall launcher, game delete (that was 1 month ago or more .. not sure)
    You will never seen me online again.
    Game is to much linear, to much time wasting on collecting stuff, there is no adventure at all, no fun, just boring grind [EDIT].

    Oh you keep your word not to play anymore after 189.

    Btw. I'm looking for suggestion here regarding Magotina's set.
    What I have:
    - T3 Boots
    - 120 Moonlit Lunar Blossoms
    - 7 Magical New Moon scrolls
    - 190 Amphora Keys

    With above resources, I have a chance to complete the set.
    I chose this set instead of Karabosa's because in future build I would like to open possibility to gain some critical damage although not that much.
    But the current changes in unique items from event.. makes me wonder.. what if I got this set.. and they change the base stats, enchantments, or the way to get the items in future(let's say those uniques drop from boss, not being trade with Moonlit Lunar Blossoms anymore).

    According to your knowledge & prediction, what is the best scenario here that I can do in mean time?

    Yet you still find the time to log into the forums of a game that you don't care about and have left...? Whatever.
    I'm out of the business of making predictions based on gear for a while. They have been changing things so often and so drastically that any prediction made today could be worthless next week.

    I don't know and I don't really care anymore XD

    This thread has been created as a parody thread to "Ask CMs" since it was closed down.
    It is not meant to be thread where you will ask real ... or serious questions :D

    So... umm... it's not really a parody but exactly the same as Ask the CMs was before it was shut down :p

    Na, it's different. You actually get answers from the Guru's. ;D

    Speaking of.... I'm in the Sands (Evergreens?) and I'm wondering what is up with all the really rediculously useless enchantments? I'm getting boots and gloves with +9 damage and enchantments of + 3 to +25% damage on this item. 25% of nothing is nothing. Or can we put Rubies in boots now? (which would make the enchantment actually be usefull)

    And what is up with the really hard to beat cyclops that has nearly no treasure? What's with that?

    Edit @ 4/28/2017 @ 10:26pm MST ====================================================
    I dance around every cyclops and it takes 8 - 12 lightning bolts plus chain lightning plus Magic Missle to kill them. And the leader one's are even worse. And those stupid archers.... Is everything in the Evergreen Oasis immune to magic damage??? I'm not like Gandolph where I can pull out an elven sword and stab them. That must be what it is. They all have high resistances.

    I think I've only one quest left in there. Need 10 more "cloths" (... deja vu ... cloths, again???) to get my 40. Cleared the entire map and the "Big Boss" and I didn't even fill one bag in inventory. *sigh*

    Welcome to the new world of worthless enchantments! No, you cannot put offensive gems (nor runes) in defensive gear, nor vice versa.

    That cyclops really isn't so tough; maybe you ran into one with a special talent that doesn't suit your setup. But you'll soon find that you'll finish the quests for a given wilderness area and never go back. Yes, some of the quests are repeatable so qualify for potentially Daily Quest bonuses, but they tend to take soooooo long to complete, I've given up on the Level 51+ repeatables and resort to Kingshill super low-level repeatable tasks instead. The cyclops is only good for an achievement, if achievements are even something you shoot for.

    Once you complete all the quests (and I may never complete two of them: The Tower of Despair, or whatever it's called, has a task to kill a specific monster on the 10th floor, but he only shows up randomly, and I still haven't seen him; and the ultimate quest is to kill the genie, but it's locked at Excruciating ... I can't even put a dent in him using red essence), kiss the R185 areas goodbye and play events and parallele worlds instead (hopefully you have buddies to help you with PW end-bosses; I don't, and can't kill most of them solo any longer; I could pre-R185, but they got buffed in that release, so are now out of reach).

    I still end up back in the Great Desert some days to help with Daily Quests; the spawn rate of both regular and champion mobs is rather quick, so you can pick up junk to craft or melt and check off those 5x, 10x and 20x champion DQs fairly quickly. And you'll fairly frequently get the request to kill the mini-boss in the small temple dungeon; he's very doable, though I still have to pay attention.

    So these forums are a waste of time pretty much
    The Developers don't post the CM don't post he uses Facebook so why are these forums here ???
    No point whatsoever

    There is no body else to take care the Facebook.
    While here, there are moderators who pass community feedback. Maybe that's why less obligation for him to communicate in forum.

    It was Trakilaki who woke me up somewhere in one of the feedback forum.
    No matter what my feedback was..there will be no way that feedback being implemented or ever considered to be listened.
    There, developers job to do what the management wants. What they wants definitely not this:

    Now mostly I use the forum to share & communicate to among members.

    Hey, I'm doing that as well (but not often, once or twice a month). There's actually a method to my madness... many of the people here are interesting, while my interest in the game dropped to near zero a long time ago.
