    If you don't remove the variable stats from the red set + time limit emote, than make this event like the Full/New Moon...once every month. Otherwise this event is pointless.

    Although my set is lvl 34/35, I didn't kill the red boss to get lvl 45, because of the variable stats were always lower than the ones i have.

    Permanent Riverdance would be cool.
    Use of the 7-day version dropped off, when the quest bugs and drop rate bugs took center stage. Welcome to the leper colony.

    Wouldn't that be too little, then? I mean, maybe not every high-level has the time to finish the event once, let alone multiple times. Then there's the lower-levels whom cannot progress as fast as a team of lv45s can, even if the map scales to the player's level.

    It starts the 7-day countdown when you receive it. Therefore, a person getting it on the last day will be able to use it for a week afterwards, whereas if you got it in the first day, you'll only have it for the next 7 days.

    personally in constructive criticism id say make the start urban area to get items from your safe hold,
    move the "go back to urban area" i did once teleport in and instantly out again from lag spike
    id also make one difference and thats to make the Shards costs vary (3-5) (7-10) (13-15) additional to that reduce core drop, but not the amount so higher brute's still drop 5core or more

    also add a crazy brute quest, like kill 25 brute's assault for 2x Might spirit guard ++
    that last one was whack :)
    Long live DSO.

    away of weeding out bugs in events is to launch the event on a test server first. If a player finds a major annoying bug he can report it. And can collect a reward. In another BP game i got 1 year premium for free for finding and reporting a mayor bug that would have spoiled an event.

    Dang, they owe me 20ish years of free premium then.:D They seem to ignore the test server reports in DSO.

    I've been looking forward to this event like many others wanting to complete their red armor sets. I like the expanded quest bar and rewards but that's about where it ends. I was one of the "lucky" ones who got a low end chest after 40 kills or so; I've been playing with it but I don't think it's really any better than what I was using before.

    On one of my lower toons with limited fragments I used everything to complete it in 6 trips, I got gloves the first 5 times and a useless set of pauldrons on the final trip. One would think the odds of getting the same thing 5/5 is pretty long, but it seems to be fairly common. Games are supposed to be fun, not a pointless grind, I just don't understand the thought behind making the armor such a rare drop and the set so difficult to complete. The player base is crucial for a game like this, but events like this that just leave people frustrated doesn't do much to encourage people to keep playing.

    Please do something about the portal back to town right where you spawn, so many people have accidently exited at one time or another from lag or misclicks. Who even uses that intentionally? Seriously I would venture to guess at least 99% exit maps by teleporting. If you can't move the spawn away from the arrow, how about an are you sure type of box? I don't think anyone exiting an event map through the portal is in such a hurry that they would be bothered by it, and it would fix the issue of accidental exits.

    You have to look at players that are over powered. If you want to have people that have overpowered toons get too muck draken it will increase the cost of the items gnob offers or the new items he offers will be more. So you do have to keep it low. I got 100% event complete on 2 toons day 3 of the event. I saved up 1000 realm frags on one of my toons, hoping for this event.

    I got 3 total. 63 red bosses. Fastest kill was 2 min 18 seconds.

    Solo against the red boss with red ess, took about 30 seconds. The hardest thing about this event is getting enough cores to unlock the boss so I ended up running duos with a friend and it seemed we were getting just the right amounts to get just the right amounts to keep opening what we needed.

    Did the same running with a partner when a guildie wanted to go; kill green, blue and couple of violet and have enough for a Red summon every run. My goal for this one was to find replacement pieces for boots and glove so I could harvest the glyphs out of the old ones. Going in I thought this would be fairly easy, but both of the old ones were top end stat wise and I wanted decent pieces even though I don't use them anymore. After about 50 kills and only seeing one piece that had damage in the 30's with decent armor and HP, I gave up on red boss, figured luck wasn't with me or they tweaked the stat allocation and started farming the yellow guy to get the trickle of Draken and repeatable quest accomplished. The 5's and 10's added up over time and got a 50 Drak reward twice from the repeatable. All in all it was something to do away from the daily routine so enjoyed at least having a variation.

    I only replaced one piece of gear from this event. My old ess gloves were replaced and gained about 2 damage and 10 hp and 15 armor... not exactly earth shattering improvements, but at least it wasn't a total wash when it came to gear. The biggest shock for me was one time when I killed the yellow boss and he dropped my the red torso... awful stats, but an unexpected shock anyway,

    Have fun saving the 2k relm frags you will need for that... better you than me.

    Really? I thought the Yellow Boss would only give Draken, as it technically should, so I didn't even try for it (only once, but after the drop was 10 Draken for me and most of the players I was running with, while one of them got a measly 5, we deemed it as a waste of time & resources).

    I thank-you sir and I have saved over 400 now and get roughly 50 a week. I really hope this event is Halloween.
