    for a new decade of game play on the planet. this one ..not sure..you should know that whoever invented money from the dawn of time period is an idiot, this decade and the way gvrt is..money is all that people want . i hate it, even if i need it,,now, about gaming,, is there a game on the planet that does things like cater to people make stuff like a good werkin event, and that doesnt take the phrase , free to play have fun, and it actually is a job to farm all day and that pearl issue, who wants to farm 5 hours to get c r ap to enter a maybe drop event boss, like its what we do out side of events, i hate EDIT here but after reading all this . I m very surprised, I have invested long hours to my char i dont get a lot of help, and when i fina;;y get to event its more hassle than the crashing, if money wasnt the focul point of humanity, how would this game be... and how appreciative would the public be, us users, or are you using us for money .. major feeling here, as i sit everyday wanting to know, should I send Bigpoint money to get things, but for what. I dont like the responses I read/

    You can have my Jullov monster emote. To me, it's useless because I have several and they're all timed. On the other hand, I can't get the pumpkin nor the raven and that's driving me crazy... not that I need it since the only pet I really use is my festive gnome but still.

    The Demented Developer's Revenge:

    Make a game that requires massive tolerance to boredom.
    Make sure it is cannot be won, even by the most addicted or dedicated of players.
    Provide token rewards that are not satisfying or useful.
    Give out a few, fabulous prizes early, to show others what they are missing.
    Use a variable schedule for rewards, so it will be totally unpredictable and most aggravating.
    Make it complicated enough to slow down the players; total misdirection is preferred.
    Be sure to provide enough competing goals for individuals, so that effective teamwork will fall apart and disappear.
    Have lots of lag and system problems, so that the real plan is masked and hard to see.
    Offer lots of solutions that do not work, or do not apply, to core problems.
    Discuss other things to make them seem important.
    Allow players to vent their frustrations in a variety of media, to give the appearance of progress or care.
    Make lots of meaningless changes, to give the appearance of improvements.

    all i wanted was Sargons powerful staff,looks like im not getting it,im tired of whites and coins drop from his chest,,i like the old sargon event where i got his regular staff,killing them solo is easy enough with blue ess,hard mode is white n green drops too from demons ect..,,i dont feel rewarded at all for time and effort,,i like this game,i played all the mmo's out there,and this one i always come back too but i guess there is new developers now making all the wrong changes,such a shame,this was a great game now circling the drain,,and i still have mortis quests i need for ring and staff that i been holding for 6 months now lol,,at least decrease his power so we all can solo him,im level 45,and all i can do now is just farm for cots and look at legend gear.(and no one wants to go to final boss of Stalgard, Destructor either,so thats 2 places they need to decrease boss hp and power)

    And to top it all off.............

    My dragon mount STILL gallops :rolleyes:

    Must be a complicated fix ;)

    Edit: Has anyone completed 8/8 yet? If so, what was in the last chest?

    Yes I finished it two days ago. Never thought I would complete it with the pearls I had left (as I was pretty much done farming). Last crate had 450x drakens (yes!) the regular pitch black (have 14 now), uni-pot, and some other junk. Wish 8/8 gave us a fester mare for all the hard farming we did, not that I'm unappreciative… :(

    Thanks for the info Jettemee. Now I know NOT to waste my time trying to get it

    It appears that the last 4 chests were grouped, the last chest contains whatever you had not previously received. Several people got the 450 draken drop, but some got the horse. (Yes, you have a personal file. They are tracking your ID.)
    It may be the same process, that explains why different members of a group can't find a different, particular scroll or item to complete a set. Everyone is missing something, but it's just a little bit different.

    The lack of a progress bar with known rewards for advancing through the event made this a Non-Event. Just a time limited maps with random chance of getting rewards.

    I began with three characters with the intention of completing the event. All got the 450 Draken drop from the Sabotage chests by 6/8. Imho this is the only decent drop from these chests. I also got the two new costumes and Raven pet (many times) along the way. Of course my perspective is different from a newer player since the Hell Mare mount, Jack-O-Lantern HP pet, and Pumkinhead costume are all things that I already had.

    My initial hope of turning my Hell Mares into epic mounts is gone. Although I am still playing the event a little I reached burn-out when I completed 7/8 (the same day it opened up.) Right now I am using the event for the kill 300 worthy DQ with my original 3 and a couple more toons. Ravenclaw is nice for that since one quick trip thru completes that DQ.

    I will probably make a push in the last couple days w/ my level 26 toon since he has 3 black squires capes and another toon has a realistic chance of completing the scroll quest.

    Anyway, overall... something different to do for a while, some good times w/ friends but I did not like the quest driven format.

    Luck be with ye,

    I liked the progress bar events more than this quest-driven type. Quests are OK, I guess, but it gets very mind-numbing. (I flat-out refused to do 8/8 when I saw what it involved.) Many of the progress bar events could be completely in much less time than was given, but then a player could just move on and do something else... or help friends with their progress. Overall, I preferred the old-fashioned progress bar better.

    I agree with Multi-sev and Mikey.....

    The old fashioned progress bar events was way. You can set personal goals with friends and guildmates.

    Just another reason why I started another game.

    I agree, something new to grind is the best part of this event for me.

    Gave me something else other than the mind numbing parallel worlds.

    The ess drops are adding up nicely, plenty of health pots dropping, and it gave me a chance to add some coins back after the power cloak quest.

    Luckily I got my 450 draken drop already so all that is possibly left in the last chest is the dead horse.. That is of course if jullov ever appears in the first two maps. Just over 100 trips between excavation and desert without seeing him yet.

    Would be nice if the pieces dropped for the epic mount, but I gave up on that hope days ago..

    I fourth the notion. I was trying to explain to newer players how I got my items from former events that involved progress bar instead of ludicrous quests. It involves non-stop grinding to get rewards, not some lame mission impossible criterion.

    P2P isnt necessary on this event. Even the hard map is easy and dragan is a walk over with nice cloak drop rates :). In the first event the 100 map wasnt too easy :) it was a challenge, NOW its too easy, All u needed was a mage and a dk.
    Now cloak drop rates are good in dragan hard with me dropping 6 cloaks in 10 runs :) such an easy event.

    You need a mage and a DK for a "walk"? That is the reason why it is easy for you?
    Not all players have powerful friends and not all players have strong toon.
    I hate scavengers.

    Me ... I don't need mage and a DK for a walk.
    I always cruise alone.

    That combo sounds about right... but it's useless if time is an issue (I'm the SW but having hard time trying to time things with my DK partner since we work opposite shifts) and neither one of us are going to get time off work just to have a playdate over an event. Just not worth it for me. I guess he can solo (he's already picked up more cool gear when he goes on his own) but it's not always how he wants to roll.

    I killed heredur and sargon alone and got one improved amulet(green) and julovs monster from pumpkin for the 1000th time. Is that normal or just me?
    It takes a lot of time to farm those pearls and for what?
