    The drop of the pickaxes is so damn low.. A big award for the development team that wants us to play all day. Till now i have seen "Julia" aka jullov 3times.. Talk about low..

    Hey, you are doing better than I am. I have run this event map well over 30 times (I've lost count) on my level 50 toon and have yet to see Jullov once. I'm at a loss as to how I am supposed to finish this event when the drop rate is so low for pickaxes. (That is.. have a life at the same time!)

    A question rather than a comment: I have been away for 2 years so there have been some changes, notably the level below the viscanium mine. Yes, I did like it; so much so I farmed all afternoon for lowering contraptions only to find that the event has finished!. Looking at the rewards for continuing the viscanium mining, there seem to be a ton of lowering contraptions..... I'm wondering what use they are when the event is over?
    And Leelahbea - Jullov jumps out of a cask in the middle. I am much slower than you guys, but I've found him twice. Have faith.

    How is it even possible to make the main event more boring than before? :eek: I'm at a point of making 30 progress per round and I'm happy if I get 50 in total (with the trade viscanium quest in Kingshil). Is this what you wish for Drakensang to be like? More and more grinding everytime it's not fun anymore.

    -Rare Julof
    -Poor drop of pure viscanium
    -Even worse drop of pickaxes
    -The grinding is just... unbelievable (if it wasn't for the last gem 95% players would have stopped way before that)
    -Excruciating/Fatal mode drop same progress as Normal

    If you want your players to suffer you don't need extra modes... the event itself is excruciating :mad:

    The only positive feedback I can give is the auto-loot during progress and I'm actually afraid of writing this good thing because next time you might cancel this too. Get yourselves together please and make the next event enjoyable.

    Why can't they leave a fun event alone? If you didn't want to do main or even mini's, at least you could farm keys...

    I figured this event would be a make-up for the terrible drop rate of the Dragan event... NOT

    The gem... pointless - No one is giving up a damage gem slot.

    I agree with every disappointing reply to this thread!

    Just don't get it? Why not make a fun event with great drops that you can complete with more than one toon and make everyone
    love to play this game????

    it's a simple business strategy...

    One of the past Cm's (Greg) actually answered this question on twitch some time back. Other games have lousy drop rates, so DSO has to have lousy drop rates. To do anything else would require an actual thought and implementation. Neither qualities will be found here.

    So after playing this lousy event for a few hours over the past couple of days, the changes made are obviously designed to frustrate players. Not that I am surprised.

    Lowing the availability of Jullov to appear was done on purpose and it only takes reading the comments to see how well the players like that. It forces everyone to stand in town begging for anyone to shout out if they find it.

    I was a tad over of the way through the event and saw Jullov twice before stopping. The event is not worth the boredom.

    The lack of reward with increased difficulty is further proof that DSO developers have never played any type of game before. Only a complete idiot would expect players to take more time and put in more effort for nothing in return.

    Now some (I'm expecting those who play Rangers) will give the dev's credit for introducing a new gem. Of course it is completely worthless for SM's and anyone bothering to play 2 handed, but what can you expect from the same people who increase difficulty without increasing reward? Will anyone honestly pull out a Ruby for this new gem?

    Now if any of the dev's had bothered to read past feedback from this event, they would have found that players need axes to finish the event quickly and most importantly need these axes to stack keys for the beyond stupid grind of the New Moon event.

    They would have read that no one wants more grind for less reward.

    On Tegan you'll find far more end game players in the PW than you will playing this event. The time required simply isn't worth the effort.

    I am interested in seeing if the new CM chimes in on this event. I wonder if he will resort to the same old tired line of "We're listening" or maybe something honest instead.

    ooops, looks like i droped a bombshell
    Who would have thought that doing the easiest mod for the same loot is best way to complete events. And moar movement speed increases map clear speed? Wow, groundbreaking.

    I also found out an ultimate method for solving all dso problems. You hit double alt-f4 combo and PUUFFF, they're all gone :eek:

    More axes. More people will play the event. Simple.

    rewards are good but the progress is way too long without pickaxes for people like me who play few hours a day

    We get only 2 pickaxes from the repeatable quest. I finish the quest on 3-5 maps. Occurrence of Helmits is random. I had even only 1 Helmit on the map. In this event pickaxes are very rare.
    It does not make sense for me to do the whole main event if I play with dwarf. The final reward is useless.

    It's almost like the developers like to be bashed with comments ... users are like that right now... It takes me so much time to farm, even though i had so many pickaxes from the last event!

    one thing you all seem to have forgotten. this game has been made for them to all maks $ not for us to have fun.

    Actually this is wrong. Happy customers spend far more money than unhappy customers. Happy customers don't quit and go play other games. DSO seemed to run out of ideas to steal from the popular games, so the releases have become unknown bug fixes and a few cosmetic changes only.

    Dear BP,

    Next time, when you decide to fight andermant farmers (amphora farmers), those who 'cheat' the system to make profit, please do it so the other 'normal' players are not impacted.

    I have never used this event to farm those anphora keys like crazy, and was always using those pickaxes to open stuff and gain progress.

    As you adressed an issue of key farmers, you made the progress for normal players ridiculous.

    Instead, please think of some other means to limit 'cheaters' gains against your finances, such as limiting that amphora quest to once per day, making it 60 axes per key, or disabling it whatsoever, whatever, but keeping normal reasonable progress for normal players, so event could be completed at normal pace.

    Thank you.

    Also one more thing... I don't know if anybody else reported this, but since in this event we drop more poison antidote for Challenge 2 it would be nice at least for them to work 100% :mad: Seriously?? I'm using the Poison immunity pot here and I'm still suffering the poison effect

    Are you actually taking damage, or is the animation still in effect even though you're not taking any hits? In case you don't recall, it's like that in Opal Shrine: While you've got the 30 minute antitdote running in that normal map and are in the sewers, the puff from the poison damage shows up, but you're HP isn't actually impacted.

    I was taking damage aswell, yes. I almost died once :p It happened few times with the 5 min antidote, I don't recall it happening with the 30 min ones.
