    You know, I always have damage increasing essences, eat pies and other stuff for 30 minutes effect, have half legendary half extraordinary equipment and I'm already very tired of dying every 5 minutes =| Really. I'm not maniac player but Halloween event on the same location was like really funny and addictive. And now it's like hard and boring farming and I'm just tired after one day gathering rare dropping pearls and frequent deaths that not sure if want to continue =))

    The only way I got them was to use my Amphos, the one with 5 keys, that's the only way I even got 2, but there has to be another way, just not sure how...

    9ndrei, it's indeed VERY frustrating that this is still happening. Although it should not be necessary, I found a few work arounds that will get the lasers visible. Invite some random player from guild into party right before you go into the map then boot them after you verify the lasers are there. For whatever reason, the invis laser thing rarely happens when you are grouped. The other thing that worked for me last event was closing the browser with the X to simulate a DC. Then logging back in quickly. It may take a few tries for that to work, but it reloads the graphics for the map each time you "reappear". I have not had to try that this time and the new timer change from a few releases ago makes it more risky. So do this as a last resort.

    There is a thread on the issue from the last event with some other suggestions and feedback.

    Ok, sorry. Didn't know it was a rule. Can you address the bug issue then?

    More bugs...
    I got the Red Cursed Fragment form the 5 key amphora and the quest is still 0/10, and 0 Red Cursed Pearls drop rate too....

    Not a bug, it doesn't keep count of them in your inventory. Get 10 and take them to Janus and the quest will complete.

    I have a few suggestions...not sure how it'll go but......

    1)Once you collect 10-15 consumable emotes of the same you can trade that for a time limited one. Say....3 days long or something.

    2) I have 3 raptors in my inventory, it would be great if the time didn't begin until I activated them. Got them all yesterday and they'll expired approx the same time. Kinda sucks lol

    Update: This is getting ridiculous. I'm doing part 2 of 3 in sulfur desert. Gotta kill 50 of those big trolls with the backpacks and 8 of the snake bosses. Slaved away grinded 200 pearls. Entered map 3 times (50 pearls per trip) and was able to kill 3 bosses. Not cause I kept dying, cause they MIGHT be there. first trip, no bosses, 2 trip 2 bosses, 3rd trip just 1. C'mon BP, what are y'all trying to accomplish by discouraging players? I would not being writing this if THE PEARL DROP WAS INCREASED.....sorry, caps button got stuck

    The first thing is i am quiet impressed with the rewards in this event. However, the developers fail to this about one thing. Yesterday i played for a long time about 14 hours in that time i was farming with blue for speed and i could only collect enough pearls for maps 1, 2 and quest one of map 3. To finish in 48 hours is crazy people have jobs and some go to school. I just don't get it these were the same issue presented in the last dragan event too much farming now u need to do it within 48 hours. I just don't get it you make the essence event to easy you can finish it in 2 hours and yet this event so borring that requires hours and hours of farming pearls. I am a middle of the board lvl 45 SW imagine how new lvl 45's are travelling i am sure they are having less fun than me

    Are you speaking of farming pearls is the issue? If you farmed for 14 hours, completed maps1,2, and some of 3 you should have plenty of tokens for Dragan and Ravencaw difficult, right? Just break the monotony and go to a different area of the event. But I do feel your concern for the newer players.

    Today was pretty good day for me, but will update this with image later.

    There are few frustrations, however:

    1. Sargon chest was empty 3 out of 6 times (had white or green item) for all team members except one. (Upd: looks like this is not a bug, as a chest CAN contain unique. It's crazy though that you spend 480 pearls and lots of other resources to open completely empty chest)
    2. Sargon and Heredur did not drop shadows In a number of runs.
    3. Did not get a single promised permanent item from the dark chests. I have opened them all. No pet. No mount, no emotes.
    4. One of the dark chests contained the same part of the rabbit costume as the amphora chests. Now I have 5 of them. Idk if I can still get the 4th part.

    Are those bugs I should contact support?

    Will mention one good thing for now :)
    Hard entrance does not seem to be an issue anymore. Got 32 keys to hard mode already :))

    Also, got a surprise drop from a mob - Kings Armor... for 1 day :))) then got the same item from the dark chest. Also for a day. Could I melt them before they expire? :)


    As you see, 2 Kings Armors. One from the mob, the other from the chest. Both 1 day only, but they are different - those from the chest are marked white and you cannot melt them. you can, however, melt the dropped one for 21K. Guess it is a bug, but maybe not :)


    And the best gooooodie today was Radiant Ruby. I have Flawless on the pic, but it was radiant. from the mystic cube. The best cube I've ever had.


    so, 25 Dragan runs - 1 Cape. Guess those playing normal only will be happy :)
    Fortunately, I don't need a cape, will use one of the lower level if am not able to craft this time. Not going to waste resources for 40 resistance points. Replaced Helmet already, will replace Pauldrons in few days.

    As you see, no promised drops from the black chests, not a single one. And two Sargon runs were wasted as chests were empty. I would kindly ask for the compensation, 200 of remains please, no pearls needed :) (UPD: after reading walkthrough again, looks like everything is 'fair') :)

    And I had 250 or so drakens from Dragan. Each run 10.

    Did one hard run to test it out. All bosses are simple to solo with mage. Mage boss - with bugged wall, horseman - hit and run, heredur - hit and dance around, sargon - a combo of hit&run&teleport. I did Mage and Heredur with a book.

    Dragan is easy with fast boots, hit&run + disable lasers by what he fires. Dropped Helmet and 10 drakens :)

    Little dragons are insane, watch out - high damage and immunity to stunning.

    Melting strategy - if you want to melt extra pieces of dragan set - craft to the second level. You will get 14k glyphs. 1st lvl is only 1.5k, 3rd lvl - 21k.

    Yes, you should contact support. Everyone should. "If you don't make noise, no one will notice you."

    I have another bug now. Or at least I think it's a bug. I'm stuck at 1/3 from Agent 003. First two runs in map120 had 2 spoiled eggs. That made my progress 4/5 eggs inspected. After that, noting. 5 more runs in the map120.. no eggs to inspect. I mean, come on.. if that's intended...

    Also, can anyone tell me what do I use Sargon’s Shadows for?

    The third quest, which is also repeating is to get 360 shadows.

    So this is Dragan #3? 4? SO WHY is it apparently IMPOSSIBLE for the dev team to make the lasers VISIBLE in Dragan's Lair for the SOLO player??? You'd think by now they would have gotten it right...and some people think the dev team gets abused by the player base but golly gee whiz, how many same events do you need to fix it? It's only been one of the repeat problems since the first Dragan event.
    P.S. Killing bosses in hard mode, dropped 12 challenge eggs so far I picked up and they are not in inventory, so waste of time and effort here?
    And of course, every laser in difficult mode is invisible. Nice job dev team.

    Oh and needing 350 pearls just to the first of 3 quests at Sulfur desert is just the stupidest thing ever, dev team. You all deserve the Genius of the Century Award. Give yourselves a huge pat on the back for making the event just too frustratingly stupid to even want to do.

    All the new drop items are a nice change of pace, and generally the event is going well. There are some grousers in chat, but they also keep coming back for more. For a long-term event, so far, so good.

    There are a few nuisance glitches that keep getting attention:
    All dragons are supposed to drop essence, but that doesn't always happen, solo or in groups. Sometimes the essence drops, but the dragon doesn't show.
    Also, quest targets disappear when others in group tag them. Sometimes the other players get credit, sometimes not.
    The number of quest minions changes in the Desert, 1-4 minibosses in a map, 1-5 brood trolls drop per map. The number of Excavation Prospectors vary a lot. Other players get different results.

    I must make the DSO production a big compliment here.

    This is the first new event that I played so far without bugs or possible exploits.
    It playes pretty smooth, feels much more refined and everyone can do something. Well done!

    In one of the official notes a department of quality management was mentioned. This whole idea of seperrated quaility departments is US american so I just assume the major BP shareholders in Boston had their part in it.
    So if there was a change of the structure or just an department that changed it ambitions, I hope it stays that way.

    Hey guys,

    The bunny costume parts are intended to drop from the last chest of every quests set and 1 from Amphorae? Because right now i opened the first 6 chests(without the wooden ones) and opened 5 golden Amphoraes and i have 3 of the 4th part of the costume and 2 of the second one...
