    Sir Kendrick is an EDIT. It's taken me 15 days to get the rediculous 250 midnight snacks (which took me about 30 runs, not all complete due to circumstanses of life and Nebula errors, killed Headless 19 times) and the jass only gave me ONE key. :mad:. The chest needs FIVE !!!. There are only 12 days left! :(:( At this rate this event needs to run till the 1st of September for me to open that box. :(:mad:

    So, essentially, I've wasted a lot of time on one map that nearly everyone else has left.

    Not happy at all. :mad:

    I know I'm not going to complete this event (not that I've ever completed any event) as I'm only 1701/5250. The only thing I want is the Dragan's Incensed Staff. I don't see how to get it. Not of the "possible rewares", except the Cursed pearls have ever dropped from any boss. I just get blues and purples and the occasionally crappy orange. :(:(:(

    The 3rd mini is hard, for players that don't sell their souls to satan, is kinda hard to finish. I play at painful with a group of 3, we can't use the prem respawn for starters. The entrance fees are higher, the difficulty is higher, and OFC the drop is lower... Not all players can WASTE their weekend playing this thing.

    There is no point for higher enter price when the needed number of Candys are bigger in every next chalenge.
    You can change the name of Event in: Curse of the Pearls - Return of Grind Farming. More than 10 days i do not play the Event - i grindly farm Pearls non-stop.
    And, in normal, those knights around with ''drop'', are from painful difficulty.
    Of course, it is logical to disable use of spirit guards, dispite all.
    I am disappointed with the amount of arrogance...

    We didnt bother with higher than Painful. Casue the two turns we made gave us the average earn.... Approx 65-70. Which calcualted by the time consumption it took reduced the effort value to below zero. Just a waste of time if you are not a full damage dwarf or a full damage free skill spammer mage. Symmply no reason to do.
    If you calculate with one round pearl farm to extend your pearl amount before you enter the mini - you may get the same time spent with this ( i dont know how to call it, cause its not even close to fun) .... EVENT.... like you spend on higher difficulties. Which also makes no sence to force. Its not for players who arent disabled... Its for spenders who pay 3000 anders for 100 progresses....

    I do not usually like to complain about things, but this mini event is a disaster. It is extremely boring and time-consuming, to the point that I hate myself for even trying to amass a little bit of progress. By all that you hold dear, please refrain from designing anything like that again.

    Your development team really need to try and play the game IF they did this before implemtation they would say this is too boring people are going to hate it

    1st mini was funny and enjoyable. ( Finished with main and almost finished with 2nd pg )
    2nd was enjoyable with main pg.
    3rd is "tedious"

    Damn! Progress in 3rd mini event is sick and extremely lame.
    I'll not even able to imagine the 4th mini progress bar progress and the map drop rate.
    Insane stress farming. Boring progress.

    My rating of the 3rd mini 1-10, 10 being best. I would give it about an 8 lol. I don't know what you all are talking about. This isn't the easiest mini yet and take not many pearls for the amount of progress. Still take to many pearls, The cost should be cut in half to enter. I actually like the small map. I just want to tell the developers don't do this to many more kind of event with such small maps. It does make it tedious and bland because it is very same look.

    don't think anyone is complaining on the premise of the event. its the fact that the amount of pearls needed and time to complete is absurd compared to the others. if the reward was worth it then maybe, but it isn't so it becomes a massive grindfest.
    many times we have been promised less grind on events, yet every event it seems more and more for less reward.

    why would anyone that thinks the reward is useless would even bother thinking of doing this event or so called grindfest. Personally the pet is worth it to me so I did the grind and completed it with not much trouble early on the 2nd day.

    It is not difficult, just ridiculously boring and tedious. You only get about 60 progress in painful without using the statues, and playing at higher difficulty modes was even worse, as the entry cost increases disproportionally in comparison to the drop, making the effort completely worthless. It took me nearly 8.000 pearls to complete it and I also had to spend many hours just waiting for monsters to spawn on a tiny map. If you find that worthy of an "8" rating, well, you'll soon be enjoying the endless grinding alone. Personally, this stupidly boring mini event had me thinking about quitting the game completely. Next time, I won't even think about it, I'll just buy a couple of AAA titles for less than what the developers want us to pay for completing one of the mini events (lol!) instead of wasting my time coming to the forums and complaining about how bad the last event was.

    depending on the group of guild members I was with probably 1/2 normal and 1/2 painful. Being in a group of at least 4 opening the statues is fairly cost effective, on painful opening every 4th statue gets 60 progress for 50 pearls.

    This is what I did too but the mini 3 is still terrible. My feedback is that it is crap.

    It's unbelievably boring and tedious, and there's no entertainment here. The amount of black pearl farming needed to complete on painful (which I have not done) is ridiculous, and there is practically no way to for a mid-high tier level 55 (we're talking around the mid-200's in the Agathon pvp leaderboards, with numerous sets, etc) to complete this event on multiple characters.

    I mentioned this in previous events and I'll mention it again - the developers need to reassess the time requirements for completing each mini. Each mini realistically should take many less hours to complete per toon in a 3 day period, and should not require given up an entire weekend to mindlessly grind for an all or nothing result*. I'm an actual paying customer (basically, premium/deluxe premium) and switching my business somewhere else when my premium runs out is under serious consideration.

    agree to many pearls needed to complete the challenge.
    13,000 doing the normal lvl is way to many for the average player to have the time to collect.

    edit 7.9.17
    the only thing i would suggest for the event is to double the drop rate of the cursed pearl.
    this would give the weaker players a remote chance to complete the mini event's.
    as for me i hope to get the gem bag reward then i will quit tihis 3rd mini event.

    at the start of this event i had -0- of any event items no pearls, weapon parts or anything pretaining to this event.
    so starting fresh the time needed to finish all aspects of this event is indeed un-do-able with the pearls needed and the time given.

    Here's why it's like this. And I have played enough BP games to figure this one out.

    It's purposely long and boring. You are meant to get so far, then say 'screw it' and buy the rest of the meter with money.

    These people obviously never took business classes in college, where they teach you about ETHICS.

    IMHO, it's a borderline illegal business practice.

    All it really does is discourage players and make them quit. On the other hand,there has be at least some players who drop a ton of money on filling meters up or they would get rid of it?


    Pretty funny how you get butthurt by a post and delete it.

    Having to farm about 25k pearls for the 4 mini events with 1.7k-8.7k progress bars within 3 days whereas you only need 5.6k pearls to complete the main event within a month, it's just absurd.
