    Good morning, I see that there is a lot of concern about the bug in the Great Hall and I would like to shed some light on that.
    1- the bug exists (I went to check that it was when I knew it)
    2 - I do not believe that there should be prohibitions for something that was not known but if there is a mistake known to the community and the most normal thing is that if there are punishments
    3- the bug is known to Dev although I don't think it will be repaired during this event for obvious reasons (the event is about to end)
    If someone does not want to expose themselves to a punishment, they can do the same thing that I have done, not re-enter that map and go elsewhere to the farm

    About the costumes, I can promise you that they are drop (you just have to insist again and again until they give it to you), personally I have the 5 and some I found them easier than others but they are drop

    Greetings and good drop :)

    For people trying to get the costumes, it is better not to try, you can kill 1000 times and get nothing, some players have a 0% drop in inf 3, inf4 or normal. God the dredge event has no difficulty, at least 1 progress bar in inf 4

    They haven't fixed it yet. But they reduced the drop runes from the boxes

    Ofcourse this is only my opinion but many people say this same

    I got Ruhk once in Dragan's Excavation Site just before the last catwalk to the end room. I've not seen any others.

    Maybe it's one member per Dragan Event run? There are 6 of them, so 3-8 years and we will get all 6?

    And I've not seen any headless costumes drop from any of the 4 maps. Only once did the Empowered Headless Costume drop from Dragan in the Great Hall for me.

    What bug you called? The only bug is that the costumes do not drop and there are no additional maps on the infernals
    Och and 0% drop of defensive set from Dragan

    i have no idea what you are talking , if u get ghastly grave after a map the widow 100% drops 1 item of the defensive set, additionally the great hall battle also has a small chance of this set dropping.
    i have gotten atleast 5 capes untill now for my 200 dragan kills for this week, altough ghastly grave is better for farming this set

    Checked! - You got 1 EPC and Mysterious Scroll :p

    Me - 2 + 1, all in one run and not from cursed amphora, 2 regular chests - inside for 80% map (or how much is needed to show) and Agent's 004 one.

    Hello! You can clearly write for the players what kind of bug in the big hall and how not to get into the number of those punished? Or can you play this roulette forever and there will be nothing for it? Do you have answers to such questions? I just can’t write to the Russian-language technical support, they receive a salary inamants and I have never received from them the answer I was waiting for (for a long time). Although somewhere in this game you can find out something officially, so that in the future I could refer to your current answer? Or there will be a story in the style of "it's just a forum, you should learn all the technical questions from professionals who we don’t have," right? I'm waiting for an answer, thanks.

    In our community, they still cannot understand whether they will punish people or not for this bug. The action is on, the pearls are being collected, but many do not want to spend it, because they saw idiots of different qualities in their lives. To answer this question you need not so many brains, a little more than that of a coffee grinder. I repeat: What is the official position of the developers? 1) We can play calmly 2) By chance it turns out that it was a malign use of a bug, and they randomly punish me for example?
    I do not understand, this is the official forum of the game. Developers / publishers can answer this question. They exist? Could the whole administration reduce to the players and explain about an obscure bug and our punishment in the future?

    I feel your pain when you have a useless support org referring you to the forums, that then refer you to support, and its pretty insulting to then see you mocked by an admin but, such is the way of things. Aside from that, you and your community can relax, as it is done. They haven't punished a single person or group of people. As usual they have punished the entire community for this bug. I never experienced it or exploited it myself, but I wish the player that thought he was clever by posting and talking about it, never did so. He contacted support and should have left well enough alone. Now, they nerfed the rune drop from the chest in Dragan hall and made farming him on any mod, mostly worthless. That is a load s steaming diapers and its not cool. All cause one dude with an ego came and wanted the community to be impressed. Shame on him, and shame on BP.

    Otherwise, I have really enjoyed this event, especially at the beginning. I finished progress with my main, and while we all know BP laughs at the number of times they make us run the absolute worst map in the game, it was still better than before. I love that we could pick and choose when and which maps we want to run. Thank you for that BP, it was cooler than your usual behavior.

    The rewards from progress were very good, and the number and variety of runes, while not a massive game changer, presented a good bit of choice and progress for most players.

    Costumes for me have so far been nonexistant for either of the toons I am running.
    Scroll dropped after about 7 dragan kills on my main. On my alt I am at about 20 kills with no scroll.
    I've opened numerous 1 key, 5 key, free, and cursed amps in various mods, with no scroll and a pretty embarrassing drop of red pearls. There is still time so I will still plug away at it.
    I like the increased key drop, but when you tie completion of the progress bars in a timely manner to opening keyed amphora, well, don't everyone guess at once but what is the word? Scummy :) Thats right, typical BP.

    I am still enjoying this event, and it isn't as bad as I thought it would be but was made overly complex. I say that because there was no actual walkthrough or guide provided by BP. The greater community had to rely on @trakilaki and his wiki, which he does an awesome job with but I am 99% sure you don't pay him for. So, this business that you run, that you make money from, relies on a volunteer that doesn't get paid, to help the vast majority of players have a chance in your overly complicated events. How does that make you feel? Thanks for making the event playable @trakilaki ; I suspect were it not for your work, this game would have far less players.

    Last scummy item, and this one really really stinks. I am not sure if this is new, or just new to me but Dragan, on Inf 2 (maybe 3) or higher, that rotten little trick with the health potions? That kind of garbage needs to stop BP. When you nerf our damage, and buff the P of mobs that stun us so we can't run and recover, not letting us use health potions is a load of dirty wet bowel movements and you know it. I am surprised nobody has commented on this, but maybe its not new. I am not the strongest player on the server. Still its pretty shady.

    I give this event 7/10 for rewards and 5/10 for playability.

    I understand your concerns, have them too ... But it would be more fair to us to lock the map if there is something malicious.

    As I've already mentioned in earlier post - I didn't even pay attention on these "bugged" things until someone point it out that there IS a bug in GH.
    After that, everything was ruined (not literally - feeling and joy of playing is what I meant).
    Why should I worry am I doing smt wrong when I am doing everything exactly the same as any Dragan event (only this time if there isn't this issue I would hail dso team for changes they made because I am, most of the time - solo player), just now I have option to choose between two arenas and I have to admit, old Dragan's (rampage map) drop can't compare with Great Hall! (unless d. core is something you need, because GH's Dragan drop none).

    I used to think so :D but the fact is, if you play it (new map), some weird things can happen ! Still didn't find the pattern or a trigger when, but I've noticed that when it happens - it is not only ECP stack - total counter reset (hp pots etc.).

    Actually I can't agree, it is exactly the same for me (though I didn't play lower than inf 3 before and after RL 229): Can be none from 5-10 entries, but sometimes one, two even more (my average number of continued runs).

    But, what changed after RL 229, and this is only confirmation from patchnotes :

    Before RL 229 - only 1 special unit and :


    He is second after RL and third in total!

    Anyhow, I'll play this till the end, and as I said, if there isn't this issue great changes and event in total would be graded with 9,5/10 by me.

    Not just that... but I've heard that exp resets too. I'm not sure of that though, since I haven't got the scroll on any of my low lvl chars.

    I very good event i really enjoy it.


    -not worry about cursed pearls
    -balanced drop of runes(group chest)
    -balanced drop of red pearls(for entrance on dragan or great hall)
    -a good way to farm amphora keys
    -a good way to farm soul stone --> i want in future in one release devs. to improve 9999 stuck on those soul stones.
    -balanced drop of runes (on great hall)


    -a low diversity on chest (group chest); can easily add here random stuff like some 1-2 augment core/xx core, or 20-25 gold, drakens like 2-3x or idk not only soul stone and cursed pearls is good but to many of them...i let you dev. to think further
    -the progress bar was to short and to few of them, and more progress bar in the next dragan, i end all progres in 3h, many players like those bars but for a 20+ days event is to short and to few of them. (10 progress bar will be nice :))

    I enjoy this event a lot, hope you devs, can change some things on next events likes infested sewers(because last was a bad event) and why not more events to be at last like this dragan. Cheers!

    The only thing I liked about this action was the group runes. Only thanks to them we were able to play in groups among those who are not sitting in the big hall. And probably 99% of the players are there, since it is almost impossible to find a party on the farm runes.
    Man is a social animal, he must play social games, and communicate with others. But what did I see in this promotion? - solo, solo, solo, solo ....
    Today I was looking for people who need a set of Dragan. I don't need red pearls. The chance of a rune drop there is so low that it runs along the horizon of math events.
    Yes, I do not think that this “bug” or specially made mechanics will upset the balance. No, the drop rate of the necessary items is too low. But the regime itself breaks my view of MMORPGs.
    Group runes and farm in groups - cool
    Solo farm in the big hall - not cool
    Feedback through the forum - no
    The keys to the amphora ... I think they will put things in them with green magic, or cuckoo's nests.
    The promotion could be cool if 99% of the players did not farm solo. They will always be dissatisfied, but my dissatisfaction seems reasonable to me.

    I forgot to add, translated and voiced Google translator. So, if something seems silly and ridiculous, he should be ashamed. And I hope the poisonous action will be more cooperative.

    Which means you had the Mysterious Scroll from the previous event.
    Some of us didn't get that scroll till 5 to 10+ days into the event.

    And the fact that you could finish it in 3 hours... congratulations. However, most (99%) of the toons can't. And if the devs continue to "make it very challenging for the few top most strongest toons", everyone else is going to quit an impossible game. The more "challenging" it is for you as a top 0.5% toon, the slower the progress is for the rest of us.

    Maybe you should try a new character on a new different server and see "what you've wined for" that everyone else is dealing with. At the least it would be a new challenge and you wouldn't be so bored. A new server means you start completely fresh, not with a million andermant jump start that most everyone else doesn't get.

    Me. I started on Friday night. By end of Saturday I had finished the second bar (I wasn't using the amphora keys till Saturday afternoon). I didn't get the Mysterious Scroll till Tuesday. Because of my limited play time Sun-Fri, I didn't finish the 4 dragan "coin" quests until Saturday (day 8) morning. Then thru Saturday I got from about 1500 on bar III to the end of bar IV mere minutes before my Premium ran out at about 3pm.
