    That sucks

    Next time I suggest you set a limit beforehand.....''like if i dont get it after 100 runs, i give up''. Spending that much anders is just a waste :(

    I don't know whether Phestos' quest - Arena Chip Challenge is once per day or not. There is no information in Anniversary event FAQ (the newest if had). I can't tell it's bug or glitch?

    I stopped after bar3. Why would I spend all my time on 500k progres just to get a lame RNG chest that gives me useless glyphs?

    Im just tired of these stupid RNG gamble crap with such difference in rewards.

    1000 bones vs couple glyphs. REALLY?

    so ridiculous there are many who have thought that it is too much progress in the events including myself and what do we get we get more progress.

    Quite pleasant minievent, overall good, too bad the potato servers turned into fried chips when it started.

    Ghost Festival

    There are very few interesting rewards in this event: 7 lottery chests and mortis bones & 2 potions. If whoever designed this thinks it is worth 2000 boss rounds of my time, they are dead wrong.

    Man if only this game had their own official forum with dedicated event feedback to improve these events. Oh right, no one reads this.

    Just like last year, ghost festival fails from the start because of the same issues, paltry rewards, insane progress bar. I had a really hard time last year doing this that i completely skipped the event.
    This year the progress was increased another 400,000 for main event, and the mini (yet to be released yet) was increased like 300,000 for its progress bars. I'm uncertain on the mini's progress drop rates, but as stated above, a non cape bloodshed run nets 400 + mobs each run for main event. 1000+ runs to complete bar 4 alone for the main event is insane. This doesn't include the 10k+ inf frags 25k+ realm frags, light essence farming, and just absolutely banging out 100's of runs daily to complete both of these events in their respective timeframe of 3 weeks.
    I'm just going to assume getting potions and souls for wendigo is impossible, and the progress drops are just as awful if not worse for the mini. Those rewards are better, but again, impossible.

    Its quite clear any feedback from test server was completely ignored again for this event, and while its nice to see a makeover of rewards in the progress bar, they in no way justify a 4x increase of progress. This event is even more unbalanced now.

    P.s. really 1 infernal fragment in bar 1, ffs how does this not get noticed?

    Simply they ask us feedback but they don't read.

    There is a main event whose progress bar has increased by 5.5 times BUT drop from monsters/boss are identical.
    I assume a drop rate of 1000 progress/run in bloodshed we need something like 550 run in bloodshed killing all monsters in castle.
    550 run in 20 days -> 30 run/day ... 10min / run -> 300min/5h at day in bloodshed...less difficult = more more runs /day
    You said I can bough TP with RF so I don't need to farm Sophia's Remedy. OK for now

    Let's assume a bar of 350,000 (~5x last year progressbar) for the wendigo with a progress of 950/run in bloodshed so we need 360 runs
    360 run in 10 days -> 36 run/day -> 180min/3h at day in bloodshed...less difficult = more more runs /day

    So for the last 10 days we need play 5h+3h = 8h /day

    BUT...there is a lot of BUTs.
    1) to kill Gwenfara we need light essence and you can drop them in Darkwood Path so u need Sophia's Remedy or buy them
    2) for Wendigo we need Ghost Fire and Life Force and these 2 items don't drop if challenge is not active so in the last 10days you must kill Gwenfara ... you need more than 30/run day
    3) you must clear Oldfield to get Sophia's Remedy (or buy them with andermants...a lot of them) so you must spent other hours in this task
    4) I assume all of us can kill monsters/bosses in bloodshed and that all players have 10-15k ips
    5) last year we need 120-140 bloodshed's runs to finish main+challenge (I started play event when challenge started to minimize total runs) and many many players complained
    6) last bar have ridiculous rewards...if a player farm 15 days in Q or bloodchests they can have rewards 10 times more than event.

    I think that the only usefull reward for new player is Magic Jewel of the Frozen Heart but I think it was at the end of last challenge's progress bars so it is impossible for new player to get.

    I think to complete main bar I+II and peharps III to get the 2 box with random rewards

    don't forget that the new players, IF there are any, can't afford to play on a bigger mod than painful for them it's a downright disaster :) not to mention that the vitality drops only during the time when the mini is active :) then the runes become x 1.5 more : ) 20 days we will look at pumpkins and that's it :D

    It's okay next time I hope someone writes after me to continue saying my criticism towards a bad event

    also by the way that you have read me I am going to create a thread to see if they respond because of the excessive progress of the event

    new players barely have resources and put an event with absurd progress, or is it that they plan to give codes to compensate for that rookie mistake

    It seemed that they were on the way to an improvement but it is seen that they continue with that of boring new players with absurd events due to the scarce prizes and the abominal amount of progress

    Ghost Festival event

    gwenfara blood = 400advancement
    4th bar event = 497800
    means kill 1245 times the castle boss in blood mode
    even if you farm the 3 maps it takes a lot of time
    How can a player with little seniority perform this event? and why the number of Ghost Fire (50x) is the same in both excruciating(example) and blood mode ?

    same drop rate as previous years with objectives multiplied x4 or x6
    What are you thinking about in your new DsoTeam?
    Dso Team, you have a job ? yes ! so, players too, and they have family too !! your players are not 100% Hikikomori

    And More, the new dso team have no respect for old players, when you see the prizes of the 4th bar event

    and, the game is pretty good aesthetically speaking, so why the new mounts or pets are shoddy ?
