    I started out solo (fatal)...

    My very first M2 map (Gloomy Pasture) I found Cedric (however it's spelled) and got the Ghastly Grave and rather enjoyed the map.

    I've only played on 3 levels: Fatal (solo/group M2 maps/solo Dragan), Inf3 (solo castle/group Dragan), Inf4 (solo/group castle, group Dragan).

    I started with 1802 Cursed Pearls and 22 Empowered cursed pearls. I'm about 1000/3200 on III bar and I've 6000+ cursed pearls and 33 Empowered cursed pearls. And I just last night got 2 Mysterious Scrolls from group Dragan Inf 4 (took approx 1000/44 times at Dragan)

    I've only did the Dark Knight Challenge once on Inf1. Almost died several times (wrong buffs active), but completed it in one try.

    Overall, this is a good event. Not the same ol' Dragan Event. A different Dragan Event. Maybe they could do one of each, each year. That would be nice. I still have 2 of those keys for the chest that's "not" there anymore in the entrance.

    So, I'm usually lazy to log in and share my very important opinions :rolleyes:, but I had to come and say I'm loving this event; makes me feel like in the good old times, but improved! :D

    It's relatively easy to progress, black pearls are dropping like crazy (perhaps next time we could either sell them or exchange some amount for red pearls..), red pearls drop to.. other people :p, amphora keys are everywhere - which is amazing since it doesn't happen often.

    It has solo aspect and group aspect, which I find really cool, my mind can rest in Dragan solo:D and I can go with others who maybe can't go solo; everyone benefits.

    I4 being available for free is also amazing, lower players can get some pretty nice items (both pink and uniques from Dragan) and I can continue trying to farm golden base t8 items for pvp (and hope for decent platinum lines in wands..) :oops:

    Solo Dragan and the runes; wow! Sure, it would be better never to see wisdom rune, but overally great drop and a nice surprise - I did not expect them to be so generous :rolleyes:
    But, it would be great if he was dropping some cores too, I need augment in my life :p

    Red pearls are pain, but okay, when farming in group it's goes fast and we sometimes get them. :rolleyes:

    Long story short, I'm very happy and positively surprised, we need more of that in this game! :D

    This event is a big surprise for me, I almost can't believe it. I am speaking from a medium level player perspective.
    There are so many good rewards that are accessible to most players.
    Especially those rewards from quests (from chests). Event quest never had this much good rewards in my opinion.
    So I had to tell you that this event in terms of rewards is the best until now and to thank you for these gifts :)

    I like the idea of dropping all set items from the first Dragan kill.
    This is very good for low and medium level players. And for those high end, they need to farm Dragan to get better stats.

    Costumes are nice with those effects and Dragan pet has nice stats.

    I also like the battleground idea because it gives the opportunity to test player skills.
    And you are rewarded with an appropriate amulet for how good you are.
    You could have put some more rewards but also add a time limit in some way like what you have in PVP 1v1.
    (I think you should implement this idea for some leaderboard PVE event that uses this concept (or something like a tower with levels). For groups and solo)
    But with every new level the difficulty should increase but not that much damage amount and monster HP but for example the variety of those special monster skills, stuns, slowing effects, negative auras for offensive stats reduction, etc. Than something like those annoying shooting towers from winter event etc. And then some shop items to create immunity to some effects.

    The idea I like the most was those chests that require different player classes to open. This finally reduces class discrimination :)
    You should implement this concept everywhere.

    They require special essences and don't even count from the objective and don't really drop anything good.

    Undoubtedly, the best action in the series about Dragan! The only thing that upset was the low chance of a costume falling out of the riders without a head! But I didn’t really chase them! Prizes are decent, a lot of the necessary drop is available to players with low characteristics! The developers worked very hard! Keep it up !

    hmmmm Well after few days I was going to complement Bigpoint this time. I was having a real good time playing with my friends. Doing the quests. Then of course Bigpoint ruined it. Really what is up with all the solo maps???? After my friends and I got to the solo map it was like pfffttttt lost all interest. If you want us to use all the red pearls we have hoarded over the years fine. Bigpoint could have at least made it so each player needed a red pearl to enter so we could still have fun playing together. Now everyone just soloed it to finish,, event over in a few days. Same ole Bigpoint SMH.

    Ehm.. i just find out that, when i was doing a second bar, in meantime i was killing a lot of bosses, which they dropped raven pearls, that it was completely useless beacause they didnt saved for third bar.. Nice nice :D

    I'm slower than all you folk, so just still completing basic elemental room quests.

    Dropped a Pearl Box from completing the 2nd Iron Forest at Night quest. It's supposed to give 50 cursed pearls + 1 amphora key + (100 or 250 or 500 cursed pearls) and maybe 1 empowered cursed pearl … so a minimum of 150 to a maximum of 550 cursed pearls.

    Instead, I received 50 cursed pearls and 5 amphora keys.

    That's a bug, but is it a good trade-off, 4 keys instead of between 100 and 500 cursed pearls? I'd prefer the pearls.

    In principle, not bad, diversity and all that. BUT!. The moment of choice comes; 1) close the progress in the party. 2) close his solo in x10 mode. Which mode did you choose? (whisper in the ear) And there is also a nice bonus, you can go to the daragan for runes without pearls, yes, you heard right. XXX mode (10), runes !!!, and you don’t need red pearls to enter (!). Cool, yeah!? And since the game is social, you can only go solo. Sexually? I see someone not in the know and demanding answers), but I'm sorry, I can’t talk about this ... I will be banned right away, as was the case with Mortis’s set. BP, you are discounting my time in your game. You do not respect me and you do not care about me. You do not respect your players by allowing such bugs into the game EVERY SHARE !!! I don’t understand who entrusted the game to you at all. I would not trust you with the cat of my neighbors! When I begin to think of you well, in my eyes, you again turn into nerds ..

    To enter Great hall, you do need 'empowered pearls'.....not sure why you think its free to enter.

    It was possible to go to the big hall without spending pearls. I can’t say the details, otherwise they will block me again on the forum. I thought about this, all DSO players know, except for the developers.

    FAALHAAS Forum Commissioner

    This event runs smoothly, prizes are decent, some new and acessible gear, nice work on combining group and solo maps.
    Long story short: I hope to see more events like this.

    The only time I get my pearl back is when I've selected Dragan for the 3rd middle daily quest... seeing as how the reward is an empowered cursed pearl.
  18. sargon234

    sargon234 Commander of the Forum

    Yes, but it seems that either the pearl isn't consumed upon entering the great hall, which is definitely a bug or that the final chest gives the red pearl.

    Either way, there's something strange going on.

    FAALHAAS Forum Commissioner

    Strange it is...I'm 100% sure my pearls got consumed, since i keep track of how many i got. So im also pretty sure people do something extra to archive this special free entrance

    Exactly what I thought - since one mentioned it, I payed extra attention and count pearls but still I can't provide a pattern what's going on - sometimes I'm on -1 (which is "normal"), and sometimes on "same as entered" which supposed to happen when chest drops red pearl.

    Maybe pearl drops into inv but:
