    it's a group event, not really designed to be done solo.

    I've been doing it solo and it is a hard grind esp. for a beginner. I've been to the yellow dersert twice, first picked up ten shinny things and second to kill a one of the bosses ( hoping for a lengenary) got a blue ring o_O

    But to be fair, on my first green boss kill I received a leng. helmet one lv. above me which is much better than the pink one i've played with for too long

    The best thing about the grind is the ex. it gives; at the beginning I about a third of the way to lv 43 and now I'm almost there! ( now I'm there )

    If u go to the yellow desert bring along as many shards as u can as it is not a good place for farming them or atleast not for me.

    Good Hunting All

    ( The Dr.; I'm too new to have friends that I trust and have never ran with a group:) )

    P.S. I finished the line besides the draken and the only a purple circling emote, was the leng. helmet i got on my first beserker.

    Yea, it will be a huge grind if you try to solo. On the other hand, if you do it in a group of 4 or 5, you actually farm more frags than you use. Just be sure to run with people you trust because if you don't, people have been know to be jerks and try to have you summon the red boss and then kick you from the group. If you are running with strangers and they expect you to summon the big boss, demand the star so that you can not be kicked from group.

    No way. Even the players that can run yellow map, arent into it.

    This event is a step backwards from previous DoE. Increased the core and time requirements to summon colored bosses, with uninticing unchanged rewards. Highly increased difficulty on the yellow map with only a small quest to get you interested in doing anything other than clearing to the boss. It was a 3 hour ordeal to get the bar done and then move back to PW's which were much more interesting.

    That said, I accept the event for what it was, a gap filler between the Halloween and Holidays events so nothing exceptional was really expected.

    I'm talking about event design, not event desirability.

    I think the event would be alot better if each color of enemy would have their own map. it would make getting shards easier if the ammount of the lower rank enemys
    was higher.

    I see they still have the Violet Hearts as non-stackable and therefore taking up inventory space.

    And again, Hearts drops randome! I get Improved Item instead of Hart two times so far! :mad: Violet Berserker are still in corner and can not drop all loot! 80 wasted frags, 4 wasted hours, thousands wasted blue essences SO FAR!!!
    Thank God for bugs. :(

    yellow helmet should have 400-500 critical.....and 10% to 15% fast attack speed lvl 50
    this is the only way to start thinking about using this set

    The odds of each piece dropping are not identical. Iirc, boots currently are the rarest to drop.

    But... this topic is about event from 2015 year...

    Whatever - I like it for fast and more bonuses for do it in group, not solo. This is mmo and this is ok make events which need cooperation all classes.
    Red boss has a good droprate, I have by 3-4 of each item from set.
    A lot of time for do event at all toons - plus for me.
    BP increased droprate for frags.
    Less bugs in quests and at maps.
    Hard map is only for must do players who want to have 100 drakens, yellow set for metling them and riverdance emote.
    But I prefer event like this - little boring and without super prizes but easy and fast than new events with stupid nolife/griding ideas.

    I actually find it nice that they didn't create a new "feedback" thread for this years ess event. This way they don't have to pretend to listen to what we think about it, and we don't have to waste our time asking for things that will never happen. It's a win-win in my book.

    There is a bug whan you upgrade red set items. First line with armor state that armor is 3-4-5 and it will get upgrade of 35-36-37 armor..... Upgrade it few times and my opinion is that values are switch. It should state armor 35-36-37 and with upgrade it will gain 3-4-5 armor.

    Maybe we should create one for the upcoming Dragan Event? You know where we remind them to remove the pumpkins...
