    Here is my feedback on the event so far.

    In short, I like the concept and the design. Good progression, layout, nice items, fair drop rates. The grinding to get the jewel is a bit excessive, but understandable given the usefulness of the item and the length of the event. The insertion of an event merchant is a huge plus for me and other people whose luck is as terrible as mine, as it will give me the chance to complete the set by buying the item(s) I will not manage to drop.

    What I did not like was the requirement to kill every single monster in the event's maps for the boss to come out. I do not fundamentally dislike the concept but having to kill every single monster every time is painfully tedious. You can easily run around the whole map and then find out that you missed one monster on each corner. The worst case is the sulfur desert map, where you can easily miss a couple of eggs and then have to run around the map just to break them. I completely ignore the achievements for the first two (large) maps because of that, it just does not worth the effort. It would have been much better if the players had to kill a couple of minibosses (like in Q4's second map) or a percentage of the map's monsters (like 70% works in the Q's for the leaderboards).

    I also could not understand the higher black pearls cost to enter the event's maps on higher difficulties, as you still get the same quest/event progress and no other benefits. There is no incentive at all to enter the event at higher difficulty levels. On the contrary, it would be counter-productive even if the entry cost were to be the same, as it would take the player much more time to clear the map. Higher difficulty levels should offer better quest progress or other tangible rewards that could justify the extra time and effort required.

    You can just teleport to the city, no need to go back to the castle again. If you could go back to the castle and not pay anything, then you just entered a fresh infernal mode (plus passage to both dragan and arachna) for free. It is perfectly reasonable that it asks for 80 fragments again.

    I was wrong with this, you don't pay to enter to Dragan in infernal mode, you pay AGAIN to enter in the mini event maps.

    IMHO, the best map to farm red pearls, are the Dragan's excavations site.

    Great event but some peevs I have so far...
    -No draken drop at all o_O
    -Fist full of sweets quest is absolute garbage and stuck with normal difficulty because drops do not improve for no reason with level
    -How absurdly easy it is to get set...seriously in 3 runs back to back i got 3/3 bellicose set and same happened with spider :cool:
    Now everyone is running around with this set that LAST time took weeks to farm all 48 parts :mad:
    This event really easy to farm draken cores thankyou for that!

    This event is sad. i want to play alone. but i cant and because why theres absulutley no red pearl drop at all alone. doing fatal black pearl farm. i pull one by one to kill. nothing drops. like this game is made i need to kill many mobs at once to get drop. why. to mek me buy ???
    i buyed ander for infernal. i saw weapon tier 4 drop. then suddenly i got logged out. this game is soo buggy. hours hours i farmed for weapon and i get this. what the point to waste money when game is not even trying to be fixed by devs. they even not read what people wrote here. sad

    I agree that the old dragan set vanishes from the game, but at least give us the opportunity to transfer legendary items to them. I'm not asking for them being updated with base stats, only asking to let us transfer and make some use of this wonderful set. Using the old and the new dragan set, makes a great combo to fight against Q7 set.

    I dont like to see it go but oh well...since bellicose came i stopped using it anyways. It is cool you can combine warlord with bellicose and it gives good damage too but bellicose with damage helmet still gives so much more

    You get almost 2000 drakens just by doing the quests that the fox is giving you. Not too shabby. If the bosses were to drop draken with each kill, with the 30-day length of the event, some people would hoard tens of thousands. I prefer it this way, I don't have the time to stay in front of a computer for 30 days and I wouldn't like kids who just got their summer vacations to overwhelm me just because they have all the time in the world. Drakens are and should be a controlled currency.

    Also, you do realize that you complain about how easy the set is to get while a bunch of people before you complained that the drop rate is bad, right? :) I am not judging you, I am just saying that such things are a matter of perspective and resources. Not everyone is created equal. I got 3/4 of Dragan's and 2/4 of Arachna's set and still many days to go, but others still have only 1 or 2 parts. Do not compare by checking the 100 most powerful people of the server, that's not the majority of the users.

    While he could have been a bit lucky with his drop rate, the thing we can all agree is that you will drop the full set way before you have dropped the draken cores you need for the transfers (unless you don't want to make em which would be a nonsense).

    In the end this was a smart move, before you needed 400 runs to complete the set itself, now you need 400 run to be able to craft the set.

    you get draken core for whatever you want to craft from all event bosses (would only make sense) so it's something you don't have to wait on till the same event happens again (1-2 times a year)
    that , i will give BP. but as already mentioned, a pink and 10 inf passage +draken cores on a slap in the face. then there's the randomness of these unique drops.
    While some get the full set in 4 runs, others farm 40+ and get 1 or 2. With draken no longer being a progress reward, you can't say "farm a lot, buy them from event merchant after boss fight". I myself am being more carefull with what i spend draken on, i have a dark cold feeling draken will get really hard to come by
  15. I like the event apart from the huge maps, especially Gloomy Pastures..

    1 - The mobs in Gloomy Pastures are kinda big and annoying to gather a big crowd together, which makes it difficult for me as a ranger to slaughter them with thicket of thorns. I know some rangers don't even use thicket of thorns anymore, but I just got back to Dso, so I still do. :)

    2 - The spider eggs shouldn't count as an enemy you have to defeat to get the demon to spawn imo... takes ages to clear that map.

    3 - More empowered cursed pearls drops from the big maps pls :D (Or change them to something like Dragan's Excavation site) :p

    4 - I wasted 2 empowered pearls by clicking on the altar that opens dragans portal. I didn't bother reading what it did and saw someone click it which spawned mobs so I thought that's how you spawn the knights that drop Cursed Pearls :p

    Other than that, the event is great. Long enough for me to catch up, get to 55 and still be able to get some 55 stuff.

    I haven't really played the mini challenges, so I have nothing to say on that.

    EDIT: Mini challenges are doable but require an enormous amount of Cursed Pearls which is really.. really boring to farm for hours and hours. The first challenge I needed about 3k Cursed Pearls to complete for 1.7k progress?? Now even that is okay'ish imo, but the next challenges have higher progress with the last one being 8.5k I believe.. *** lol that's 2x more than the main event.. I hope you get WAY more progress per run than the first one for those.. Otherwise I might have to farm around 100k pearls to completely finish everything in this event. t_t

    I did get the jackpot from the wings sphere though so that encourages me a little bit. :p

    No but seriously.. don't pull off another 'new' newmoon. I don't want to quit again, especially because of deadly boring events..

    Activity weapons not worth it, because of the need to "super" luck I worked in another server to get him, also met in order to collect his super efforts of others. In addition, in order to get the red bead, remove all the monster is a very painful thing, I have to coordinate my state of mind. Let oneself not to brush for a long time and didn't get very angry,。

    Be more creative dude :p
    That is not the way you should craft the weapon.
    In order to keep your golden stats in T4 weapon ... you should do the following:
    1. craft a weapon with all the weapon parts ... you will probably get T0 weapon
    2. craft that T0 weapon with desired stones ... you will get enchanted weapon
    3. craft that T0 weapon with legendary weapon by implementing Pristine Core transfer crafting
    4. use your enchanted T0 weapon and do Soul Core transfer crafting to your T4 weapon ... you should be able to transfer the enchantments to your T4 weapon with golden base stats.

    i dont like the Fist full of sweets quest especially because in sulfur desert map the quest drop is lower than all the others, before when we had to gather 30 candies from there we could get them in 3 rounds , now the drop is even lower than 10 per round, if the quest was for 10-15 runs in each map it would've been better, in the gloomy pastures i did 21 runs to complete the quest but for second i might have to go for 28-29 runs, not to mention that i only got 3 cursed pearls of the damned in the 21 runs in gloomy pastures, we should get 1 every 3 runs at least because even if we kill dragan or the spider the unique drop is not high

    how many of you got this beauty? [​IMG]
    I was quite happy when i got it, since i couldn't get it at the forum event. A big plus was the costume.
    This quest for the jewel enchantment is a trap, to make you agonize at the minis, searching for pearls.. I personally don't do it..
