    Hello all :), (sorry for my bad English : i'm france's prettyest plump rabbitgirl of DSO :p),

    Before, we were the heroes of Drakensang; and now we are cooks, gardeners, apothecaries, miners (noble trades IRL certainly).
    We make potions, we collect plants, we look for ore …. and so on o_O.

    You no longer need (another) heroes :( (Tina turner), the magic of the game has gone away !

    This event is like this previous one : bland and uninteresting :confused: + :(

    Ppppffffff… I think i'm start playing "bilboquet" or learn how to knit :eek: + :D..

    On this, at the review :cool:

    The previous version of Dessert of Essence, if remember correctly, was so much fun and exciting. Most of the guildies will always online to play or ready to join group for this event. The Black set was among those highly desired 'must-have' sets. etc

    However, Dessert of Essence (New) is an opposite side of the story, Where is the FUN ?

    *First impression with this event from an average player (Not those end-game big brother and sister :p )

    Yeah, the idea of events in games is to attract players to the game, with something new and exciting that only comes once in a while, brings great rewards and fun times. And this is how it was years ago. Any of the last events, easter, stelar gold, desert of essence, are not even close to that. Is like are made on purpose to eat lots of player's resources without giving anything in exchange. I mean - powerful essence ? For what ? To go and farm more resources to play again the event to get more powerful essence so we can farm the lost resources again ? Right...

    I agree with SMiwel art department did a good job and there can be some small changes here and there and its a monthly so you dont have to get everything rn.Thing is people criticize this event as "bad" because their 20k chars cant handle even normal and come here and start complaining.Dont be expected everything to be handed out to you so easily thats why this is an MMORPG game you need to grind to make your char better.If everything was so easy the game wouldn't be interesting *clowny*

    With the new elemental essences the inf7 will be easy-peasy overall a very good event for me.

    I think this event would have been decent in levels 45-50 when tanks were the heart of the game! Now I'm rubbish thanks to you!

    However, it is the first time that an event prize is exactly half the value for the Dk of all the other classes!

    Half the damage = double consumption of essences, maybe it is the case to fix the thing before the expansion!:cool:

    Having said that the event is not so bad for the duration of 3 days! You probably aim to see essences but it will not be so for everyone and this is called class balance!

    You actually need to survive the storm on inf 1, inf 2, inf 3 and inf 4.
    There are seven waves of the storm.

    Yep, that's right, it's grindy as hell.

    Recycling an old map and using it 7 times to just chang colours of the mobs inside is not what I would call art.

    This event should require less realm fragments to be done, the better you can do is making all difficulties playable with 1 realm path, so players can notice a difference on their progress/resource relation if going Infernals, and not just giving x3 progress but asking for x3 realm paths, thats making the difficulties pointless.

    Positive feedback:
    The event brings 2 good things: Upgrading essences and elemental damage essences

    Negative feedback:
    The big cost in realm fragments and HP potions. You are basically changing resources for other resources like hundreds of realm fragments and potions for essences. The way it is constructed does not give any profit for the player. Most of the older players will play on inf 3 or 4 with white or green essences. Therefore special essences will not be necessary unless you farm inf 6-7. You usually don't farm inf 6-7 because of very bad drop. In conclusion the event represents and big loss of important resources (realm fragments and potions) in order to gain less useful resources that will be used very rarely (special essences)

    A simple solution is to have access to all modes (from normal to inf 7) using only one realm path. Make it similar to Full moon and New moon events. The fact that you use one realm path for all modes makes those 2 events very popular. This also gives motivation to new players to make their character stronger. Right now there is almost no motivation to improve your character as long as the most viable modes remain painful and fatal at best (at events)

    Most of the top end has enough essences and most of them are quite easily obtainable anyway so upgrading via carmot is just changing colors for gold
    Regarding the elemental ess it might be interesting however mages once again wont gain much with it thanks devs on the other hand it´s a nice idea yet once again badly executed as the ess consumption is highly unbalanced amongst the classes
    I´ve already said that
    They made 2 maps one is recycled 7 times second is in 7 different colors that´s smth they are payed for as a brand new thing woah lemme have job like that when i just make 2 things and call it 14

    @Mal3ficent Why was the schedule changed?

    been a long time for this event ,was a fun event and was looking foward to it again,after 2 hours of playing desert essence helped me make a decision i had been mulling over,i have put a lot of coin into DSO but now ima break down and buy me a game console,money better spent i think after this disaster of an event and the other changes DSO made that threw the game out of wack

    Same as the last couple events....

    Put in loads of time for basicly zero rewards :)

    After few hours of playing desert essence event,I realize one thing: this is just a common NPC quest , not event.
    NO wonder such bad reward.:eek:

    This event isn't as bad as some other ones we've had recently.

    However, people are done with the grind. A grindy event being mediocre (as opposed to "bad" like most recent ones) with mediocre rewards just won't cut anymore. It won't make people suddenly love the game. We need new, good content, that is not overly grindy.

    None of the new proposed... Expend maximum essence, to create a new maximum, dress on the character and you will see that your basic damage matters without essences..

    If we speak constructively, there are advantages in the event, but it is only visualization, I mean, painted beautifully.. But playing it means only one thing, disrespecting yourself... Prices for portals - speculative, chance of falling new peets and decorations, minimal, new essences are useless..

    Everyone who has long been in the game knows that the old event was better, the current processing, can only like those who have not played in the DSO before and have not seen anything sweeter than carrots..

    I don't know what are you exactly trying to say, but the new essences do work. They're all the same on dragan however.

    @GUERRERO186 You're not allowed to speak Spanish here. Anyways, look here for a clue to how to translate the icons under the boss' health bar to his resistances.

    I have a question because i'm very confused by the new essences. I thought i understood but now i just don't know. I created some essence of vigor (fire) legendary. I used it against sigrissmar parallel worlds. First i used the regular red essence and the numbers were what i expected them to be. Then i switched to the new vigor fire essence and the damage numbers were less than half. Now the numbers i'm seeing for damage appear to be the numbers i would get from just using my skill without any essence. So does the new essence do anything or is it that the extra 300% fire damage it's supposed to do just not showing in the damage numbers?
