    Well the "new" Lost Wisdom event is live on TS ... some people were complaining about Dragan's event ... they said it requires too much grinding. :D Nonsense! Wait until you start playing the Lost Wisdom event. :oops:
    The event is very boring and as you can see from the screenshot obviously unrewarding.

    So what you will need to do:
    - farming impure viscaniums and trading them for map entry (though viscanium maps are dropping from the monsters as well)
    - out of 5 runs in the viscanium mine there was only 1 boss per map (drops x2 "Aufzung-Zundungsmodule" :oops: )
    - when the challenge is active you need x100 "Aufzung-Zundungsmodule" to enter the challenge map. (you can't enter if the challenge is inactive) That is 50 Viscanium Mine runs for 1 challenge map entry o_O
    - if you need ... lets say ... 10 challenge map runs for completing the challenge .... that is 50 x 10 = 500 Viscanium Mine runs.
    - there are 3 chalenges (and for the rest of them you would probably need lot more "Aufzung-Zundungsmodule" for completion) that is 1500+ Viscanium Mine runs (+ farming for maps ans impure viscanium from worthy monsters)

    And for what? For items that you don't need (from the progress bar) on top of it you can't even sell them :D:D
    Another ruined event.

    damm, you beat me to it trakilaki. Anyways, here s what i was going to post:

    Event comes with release 150.

    Shady John Fair trade trade 200 impure viscanium for 10 pure
    Shady John To the Mine trade 200 impure viscanium for 1 secret map which is needed to enter the event map.

    Mud No Mercinary Kill 30 Cold Norse Mercenaries Reward: Viscanium miner pack (contains map, pickaxes and impure viscanium)
    Mud Chop, Chop! Bring Mud 30 pickaxes Reward: 1 amphorea key (complete waste of pickaxes)

    In the world maps the impure viscanium drops like crazy, mainly in drops of 1 and 2. Autopickup would be awesome!
    Upon entering the event map 1 'secret map' will be consumed.
    There s a small chance for a secret map to drop in the world maps.

    Buzz saw, gnome, dark dwarf, troll, ice minion, jullov, 3 bosses (inspired by/copied from Stalgard)

    The spiders in the map (previous events) have been switched with buzz saws, so no more poison damage (good news for low lvl chars XD )
    I think there used to be wolves, they seem to be gone now.
    There used to be cold norse mercenaries (miniboss), but they re absent. The quest from mud can not be completed.
    There used to be 3 bosses. Each on it s own square, top, middle and bottom. For now they seem to spawn randomly.
    Bosses drop items (2x, 5x and 10x) needed to enter the hardmap. 100 items are needed.

    Pickaxes: drops of 1 and 5. total per map: 10-20 (unless you find Jullov in a barrel, he s always in the same barrel and drops 15 pickaxes)
    Barrels: trap (damage), impure and pure viscanium, pickaxes, Jullov
    Viscanium rock: impure (and sometimes pure) viscanium. No pickaxe needed.
    Viscanium geode: pure viscanium or ice minion which drops impure viscanium. Consumes 1 pickaxe.

    Hard map: no info, my char couldnt enter, and hovering over the entrance doesnt give any info. The entrance is at the bottom of the map.
    There are 3 challenges for the hard map.

    - Error 21
    - error ids: forkresultforkdenied
    They happen all the time, sometimes i need to refresh 3 times before i get back in the game.

    nice, i want the 2 keys,haha
    but really,in their big bag of stuff they have just sitting around collecting dust,the rewards should be better.
    how hard is it to change the keys to a radiant gem or something,anything.
    well back to map2 and pvp for me.
    thx for sharing.:D

    The only worthy rewards i ve seen are blue essences, draken (not much though), and the joker gem. Some might find the pet, horse and costume worthy.
    However, anything can change! XD

    Went through the effort of logging into forums just for this. Man, they really must be kidding with those useless rewards in what is, in my eyes, the most boring and most grind requiring event they have ever created.

    Even though it's only on test server, I really hope mods do their job and pass on the comments to the devs, will be a really big mistake if they let it go live as it is.

    The quest can be finished. My guess is that it counts trolls or evil dwarfes.


    Interesting item:

    i have some more info about the hard map. the boss on the most south square in the normal map now seems to give 2 drops (10x and 20x) from the items needed to enter the hard map, so that s an improvement. the monsters in the hard map drop challenge progress. there s 2 bosses, but not much special. the ranged attacks from some monsters hit rather hard (my mage got 1 hit killed).
    and i saw a lot of 'inactive turrets' which are as the name says, inactive. i assume they ll be for some kind of quest, but the hard map doesnt seem to be finished yet, so anything can still happen.

    I was playing only solo. For me the drops from the bosses were constant.
    (bosses from right to left)
    1. first always drop x2
    2. second always drop x10
    3. third always drop x30

    They are randomly generated and only one boss can be on the map at same time.

    It might depend on when you played it. I was on the TS when the event started there. The first few rounds the third boss dropped randomly 2x 5x 10x. later the same day, or the second day he suddenly always dropped 30x. i played everything solo. (teaming up may be better for the pickaxe usage, but i couldnt find anyone to team up with. i hope, just like in the past, that when person spends a pickaxe, the geode drops for everyone in the group)

    Remember, the event is still being developed. The hard map doesnt seem to have been finished by far. The potion (post #6) seems to give some kind of immunity against poisonous gas (maybe like in sulfur desert?) in the hard map. but there s no poisonous gas there yet. and i m still missing the challenge in that map.

    the first day, i encountered only 1 boss in the map at a time. the second day, i encountered 2 bosses (randomly). so perhaps when the event is fully developed, there ll always be 3 bosses.

    @devs, making something beautiful out of all this mess XD

    Hmmm ... then it is all random ... but for some reason I always get the same outcome. :D

    I think that the hard map is finished. If you look at my screenshot from this thread ... you can see that there are achievements related to the event. Now ... I think that the challenges would be different not the same like the ones from Dragan event. I think those turrets and those other things will be active for 2/3 or 3/3.

    BTW in the last achievement's description you can see it says challenge 4.
    Probably there will be more than 3 challenges.

    There are only 3 challenges. The 4. Achievement is for the title that you get when completing all 3
    Seems like we Germans know the most of whats happening next, maybe i'll post a bit about lvl 50, rewards of challenge 2+3 and some other stuff tomorrow :p
