    I finished the first event, I was interested in new essences!
    Now I have some in the inventory, but I don't know how to use them, I have no interest from the bosses of the Q inf5-7, various reasons for a bad group game, the bosses give an insignificant drop when you already have all T10. Does the game now stop at inf3-4 and require more damage?

    The new unique set is little or nothing interesting, certainly not worth the effort to play hours and hours at this event!

    The rest doesn't make much sense either!

    The fragment farm is low, so it leads you not to play and skip events, you can dedicate time to something else, which therefore 3 monthly events + one special are too many!

    I think it will be appropriate to do a test to see on all the classes which abilities with the new purple essences take life and which do not!

    Surely there will be a big fight but it will be good for the game!

    The quets simply disappeared with the purple shards from the inventory!

    And more a question and if you find the purple fragments in the inventory after the end of the event?

    the event is in my opinion poorly balanced, the full moon and new moon events can be handled with fewer fragments of interludes, however in this event you spend much more, it is another event for cash players

    First to mention that I haven't planned to finish this event because, you could guess, I am a DK and whatever essence is, we are so pve disadvantaged that there is no point ...

    I just went for ach, and that was not a biggy :D


    And maybe to do quests (important note for next quote) .
    So I did collect all colors for the first one and then I start the pink one ...

    Actually - I finished event looking for purple ones and find few but I don't get this:


    As you can see - I got 24 spheres which means than I have to kill at least one (I did - 3) but achievements don't think so :D
    Maybe Troh isn't the only boss on the "pink" map, have to admit that I didn't pay attention on that detail.

    Back to feedback:
    • Not so hard to play (if ...)
      • entry costs are lower or none (m1 realm fragments would be fair only in case that m2 is f2enter but then m1 would be useless, I know :D so, no realm frags is the solution)
      • quests are more useful (first one's reward is a joke, 2nd is too random)
    • New essences - ladder up for essences bag need
    • Progress bar rework (at least some spheres somewhere)
    But not to be complete pia, probably will play the next one too but it would be nice that everyone can play ...

    Also, the drop rates for the set and pets/ auras should be way higher, there's no reason for them to be so low.

    Also, the drop rates for the essence crystals should be higher. No one like 2~3 for one run.

    positive in the event? anything.negative in the event everything!very high entry rate, we know that the drop of the (Realm Fragments) is not good for a long time.progress without comment.on the map of the deseeto to release the map 2 the drop of entries for the portals is null, the map is odd and waiting for the drop to fold in the sandstorm is only suffering besides not dropping anything the drop of the miniboss should be at least the pets .the set of the event nobody saw or heard of it. however what really frustrates the player is how the DEV'S are trying to develop the game, always getting worse.they should announce that the game is paid and whoever wants to play has to pay. become ethical.there is a player who hasn't managed to fix the character yet and new changes are coming. in new patch updates, the character loses everything. damage, life, resistance, armor, in short, everything doesn’t have time to improve anything. the illusion that when it gets to 55 it will get worse at level 60.and to determine how the game is getting worse. are too repetitive events. the one from the desert after opening the portals should not have to redo everything again to enter map 2.That's my opinion. I'm just sorry that it's getting worse.

    These are the things the devs can do for this event:
    1. Remove it from the game. (less lag)
    2. Remove sandstorm AND fixed the tickets required to 1 for all difficulties.

    PS: I will never do this event again, Just threw away the ports from codes to save space.

    The biggest problem with this, seeing as how it will be a recurring event is the theft of the essence crystals. It is theft from the player inventory, plain and simple, and it needs to stop.

    Also, the entrance should cost the same realm fragments as the Moon events, and not increase requirements with higher difficulties. This is especially important since BP blatantly LIED to all of us, saying that there won't be many events requiring realm fragments. This wasn't a slight nerf, it was a major nerf, and it was completely dishonest. We as players are BP's customers. The only organizations I've dealt with that treat their customers more poorly are the airlines.

    Back to the event, to make this more playable, I suggest removing the multiple waves of mobs in the sandstorm. It isn't challenging, or fun, it is merely annoying, and it takes a LONG time. If you insist on the stupid concept of a fire damage based sandstorm, make all of the mobs from all of the waves appear at once. That would be an actual challenge, and pretty fun to be engulfed in a massive hoard, that also can be cleared in a reasonable amount of time. The boss at the end should drop something too; whether it is a random path for the event, or some progress, just something to help us feel like we aren't being insulted for our time.

    The portals should be clickable only with a confirmation, and only one by each player in the group, that way you don't accidentally burn the precious crystal dew during combat, and group members have the option of doing their own color if they so chooce.

    Lastly remove the "random" destination for the purple portal and just make it the damned purple portal. The deceitful way BP injects randomness into this game serves to simply make the customer angry and helps nobody.

    I like the second map, but have to admit, it is pretty lazy to simply recycle it for each of the different colors. Is this an example of the best you can do?

    event ended and I was unable to finish an event quest. second time it happens. I don't know how the dynamics of developing the game work. I'm not a programmer. but I understand that if the item is mandatory, the drop to finish the quest of the event itself should in addition to the drop work all of them. I did not enter the map of purple essences because during the entire event the portal did not open. question: will you fix this for the next events? missing event quest item has been going on for a long time. comment only.

    I'm still disappointed with this event, the debuff on the first map makes the entire playtime so uncomfortable (even with physics and tonics). The entry costs are way too high and each edition, we're supposed to do the same quests over and over again? No, thank you.
    This edition I finally found one purple map but to my huge disappointment, I wasn't given that 1 point to achievement, what's worse, failed to find all 10 pieces :'(
    From DSO Discord, I learnt that only those who entered that map on inf3+ were given the achievement points. Then why all the other colour maps are working fine? No matter of their modes all the bosses are counted in, but not this one? There's no info that this one from the purple map is supposed to be killed on higher modes :(
    I could play this edition a bit longer, thanks to the free entries, but still, huge disappointment.

    That's not correct, I am playing only i3 + and still am on 0/25 +

    It was him all the time!

    And one more thing about purple (or any other color map) - please give us correct color path, not the random one when we decide to spend amphora keys:


    Additional feedback:

    I have to admit that this new essences could be useful, especially purple one :D

    Of course, about purple one above was sarcasm - WHAT WERE YOU THINKING?! Andermagic should stay as all others and it would be more logic that additional map was BLACK and gives black (mortis's) ess (just as it is, without elemental additions) to fit with his set.

    +100% dmg per color is very OP even in compare with other new essences only but reflection effect (-hp%) shouldn't be 10%- rather start with -1% (with additional +1 for red = 5% - that would be fair)

    Then I have no idea what's going on... How come that some players got their achievements right while others got bugged or sth...
    Would appreciate if Mods asked sb higher and shared the answer with us.

    And BTW Dzungla, have you noticed that all cursed amphorae (no matter on which colour map) gave only entries to the white map? :p

    I think this might be bug like that one in pvp event - you must activate it with playing 1v1 and then team which I haven't in desert event - solo finished both.

    Of course I haven't! XD

    I've encountered two cursed amphora's on the second map. First one gave me a pass to the second "white" map. The second CA gave me a pass to the desert of the lost (first map).

    does anyone ever down in the dev's room ever try to do these quest's for this event?
    2 runs i had 6-8 dew per map the next 5-6 runs i seen 3-4 / run.
    now i have done 2 runs with out a single dew drop for me.
    how can i ever gain progress when the vital part of the whole event does not drop?
    looks like you guys never even try to do any part of these quest's!
    if this is how the future event's drop rates will be , expect to see alot more players quitting!

    the game has been redesigned for the player to buy. Everything in the game is now money. what is not purchased with anderments, must be purchased with cash. haven't players realized this yet? illusion to think that the progress of events will change or decrease the bar, that the drop will improve. understand now is to buy or buy. For each event, the use of a progress buff is required to achieve up to 50% drop increase. it is also not clear the amount of drop per map or race on the map. the worst of all is that the player is not sure of good drops, only high quality, items that are supposed to drop in each event. in the case of the desert of essences the only ones, pets the auras of effects. none of this is certain. what i understand is: if i'm paying i have the right to the freebie. I pay the game for it. however this is not how it works. if you question the support or in the forum the answer is the same: the drop is random. wake up players. and we will treat them as they treat us. if it is to pay for fun, then be sure of fun. or shut up and go look for something different to do. complain? there is no solution. after all the game is theirs and ready.

    well in fact i have paid over the 8.5 years i been playing here , and no small amount either.
    If they expect me to pay more i expect to get things easier than someone who does not pay anything.
