    Doesn't drop at all or doesn't drop 100% of the time? Because if it is not dropping 100% of the time, but it is dropping, then everything is normal.

    3 times in a row no drop, and other team members reported the same thing. Only 1 of 5 team members got it with 4 kills as supposed.

    It's extremely lucky to get the violet hearts in 5 kills. Last time around I believe it took me 10 or more kills.

    In my case, if I remember correctly, the chances were 50-50% for such a drop.

    Are you talking about the 4 hearts that you need to craft in order to complete the mission for drakens?

    I got 4 violet hearts in 4 runs.
    This random thing seems to be very "fair", typical for bugpoint

    I don't like the set's bonus. Considering how powerful legendaries are now, this set is a big joke now. It was decent before r155 and especially r158, now it's very very weak. Who would use this set when you can use instead a torso with 20-30-40% dmg, boots with dmg (or runspeed, tons of armour or hp, resistance), gloves with 20-30% speed or more (or even gloves with dmg). You can get much more dmg with legendaries than with this weak set. If you rework the newmoon and fullmoon and dark set, why not rework this one too? and improve it, otherwise it will only be useful for the people just starting out who have nothing else better to use than these useless uniques.
    Legendary boots, shoulders, gloves can give you over 100-120 dmg.
    The set's bonus should be at least 30% for the red one
    and 40% for the yellow one.
    I only did the event for the drakens, because otherwise it has 0 good rewards. No special gems, no cool uniques / items, nothing

    And one last thing I forgot. Considering that the knowledge points don't go straight to the base dmg now, the 15% increase in dmg from the set bonus will be even smaller because the actual base dmg is much smaller than displayed :D

    It never did, we just didn't pay attention to it.

    Didn't bother to fix the violet quest, did they? True to form, for jerks.
    There seems to be a problem with the layout and collision prevention programming. I opened a green brute, and he materialized beneath me. It threw me a few feet across the map, like I stepped on a land mine.
    The violet boss will not drop the quest hearts, if someone is standing on top of him. Back your DKs off at the end, if you want the drop.

    The defend Julov quest is bugged: the guy we need to defend is about a mile from where the mobs spawn to kill him. The explosion thing for Blue berserkers is still bugged since DoE #1. The freeze for it goes off during its "warning" phase about 1 second before it actually explodes, then freezes you again when it actually does explode.

    Why did you make getting to the yellow map so repetitive. We need 300 dust to get the Sleep potion, and if you summon EVERY brute on the map and 1 or two berserkers you get about 50 a run. So we have to do 6 runs to get a potion. Oh wait, you can buy the potions for 3k ander. Now i get it. nevermind it's intentional:mad:.

    Does every brute drop exactly 1 core?
    If that's the case isn't it best to kill the weaker brutes to get maximum cores per shard used.

    no, ive seen drops of 2 and 5 on the red brutes and 2 from violet ones but its not a guarantee to get more than 1

    300 dusts for every Yellow map entrance.

    I remember there was a quest in last event where we had to collect ~10 shiny things in the "desert at night" map.
    It gave some draken reward and later came the kill 10 yellow berserkers quest.
    This time there is no "collect shiny things" quest instead it's kill 10 yellow berserker right after violet boss.
    Why was that quest removed?
    DSO didn't like people getting reward for running night map just once?
    They only like us spending our entire day farming dust and going in 10 times for a few 100 drakens.

    And these sets from the event need a remake to suit post R157 scenario. The current design is old from pre r157 and doesn't suit well now at all.

    It is not removed 1001 Jullov (2/2)
    You can take it from Jullov in the night map.
    This event is exactly the same as the previous one ... nothing has been changed ... even Defending Jullov is bugged like it was before.

    I have some observation about this essence event. Have anybody else tried to do it all solo? Its absolutelly impossible to get into yellow map if u play solo most of the time. The math for this event is totally wrong , the drops of shards are very low to allow a single player do all the runs needed to get cores enough and so collect 300 dusts to reach yellow map!

    I quit with this event needing only yellow boots because i just cant make anough dust without doing tons of solo runs just to farm shards to summon minis and so collect cores to summon big bosses and get a better dust drop.

    Running solo , with the shards we collect in a full map we barelly get some to summon up to the first purple mini bosses. Than u have no shards , rarelly have enough cores and so it goes.

    This event was by far the most grinding event ive ever seen on this game. I suggest it to fix the grinding , improving shard drops!
