    trakilaki, everyone loves your suggestion to re-enable Circus farming for exactly 2 reasons:

    1. You're god,
    2. everyone wants to grind drakens and draken cores easily outside of events.

    Why 1.? Because

    Why 2.? Because everyone wants to craft draken core items (dragan & witch seeker) ASAP. Why? Because everyone wants to be 2h Rambo and wants to use best items for damage ASAP.

    So you guys would be happy if the entire event system was reduced to Moons (2 per month), Dragan (2 per year), and Circus (any number per day) to get Witch Seeker and maybe Spider set (New Moon), Dragan set (Dragan), and tons of dakens and draken cores (Circus)?

    Well, isn't that boring?
    It would be much more fun if we got various events with more event related item drops. But you guys don't believe the devs would do that - because you are realists, or you don't even want them to do that - because you are uninspired farmers; so you are happy with the idea of having no events except the 4 ^. Well, good for you.
    Sure, re-opening Circus does not necessarily mean removal of other events or decreasing draken & draken core drops in them, but that might happen, bcs devs would know you could grind all desired event things in these 4 events.

    Then let's scrap ΣMiwel's ideas completely, because you want to grind drakens and cores in the Circus. I assume once you can do that, other events will be non-existent or having pretty much no drop.
    If that's the case, I don't mind it from the perspective of myself and my character setup, because I personally only have Dragan set and am thinking about trying a build without using any of the event items; but I'm worried about the state of the game, where everyone runs around clad in the same armor, playing the same build, and where there's nothing interesting to do other than 4 boring events repeating ad infinitum. And judging from FB comments, where everyone yells they want DRAGAN, it really is the case.

    If you look at the roadmap, the first big event is coming in the second quarter, probably half of the year, leaving us only the moon and a Easter(?) event coming. At this rate collecting draken or draken cores will become a nightmare.

    You know what your problem is? You're focusing on people who needs to craft/augment their draken core based equipment, which eventually we ALL need to do in the future, but you're forgetting about people who needs draken to buy runes.

    Do I remember you how much expensive are Life runes? Even concentration reduction and damage runes are useful for me and I need them, but at this rate I probably never buy them. The same for pets or mounts needed for collectors bag bonus.

    Look, Traki is not god and many of his ideas are certainly not of people's liking, including me sometimes, but this time he is right. We need to get draken, since we don't know when these lazy developers will bring stability to this game again.

    With the current roadmap, you're right.

    That's right. I don't buy anything from Gnob, so I forgot other players do.

    The existence of draken core based gear that is essential, is stupid. Event gear should be a bonus that some people have, some people don't, is cool looking and gives some advantage, but making it a necessary top-of-the-line is a bad design.
    To decrease its importance, devs would have to make some good PW sets.

    Sorry, never bought any of those (except one time 10% dmg), so again, I forgot about people who buy runes.

    Look, if Circus re-opens, so be it.
    But if devs take it as an excuse to not make any other events than the 4 (2 Moons, Dragan, anytime Circus), because we can farm everything we need doing those 4, I will not be too happy :/

    In fact, I was planning to slowly switch all may draken core based gear (4/4 Dragan's Bellicose Armor) for PW items due to the draken cores issue. I may not reach 60k damage, but 40k maximum damage is ok for me.

    But my case is not many people's case. The majority of players have full event items, armor of darkness and dragonache jewelry, they are the ones which need the change right now.

    We need more ways to get Draken cores. You can get Materia cores at any time by running PW maps. You can get Tullurian cores at any time by running World maps.

    Right now you can get 250 to 400 Draken cores per month with both Moon events, and that's it. Not enough.

    Right now, on top of all our Pristine Core crafting that we're trying to do, we have a massive multi level Augment core crafting to do.

    For me, right now I could use some 3250 Draken cores. At current rate that will take 10 months just to do the crafts that _I_have_lined_up_now_!!! And there will be more to come as I finally get some successes with the Platinum lines.

    I agree with Traki. Bring back the circus and Draken cores should drop from all the 2nd map bosses.

    As for the Draken themselves, well ditto to everything I said about Draken cores. We can get less than 1k a month and all the runes cost some 3 months worth of Draken each. We need drops there as well.

    introduce a way to exchange cores for other cores

    I have plenty of pure cores sitting in my bag that won't be of any use, i could convert them to draken cores

    The same about tellurian or materi or soul cores
    rcch and heror like this.

    Even if the conversion is 1:2 still ok

    I suggest 5 new workbench recipes:

    • 3 Soul Cores + 1 ingredient = 1 Augment Core
    • 3 Soul Cores + 1 ingredient = 1 Pristine Core
    • 4 Soul Cores + 1 ingredient = 1 Tullurian Core
    • 4 Soul Cores + 1 ingredient = 1 Materia Core
    • 5 Soul Cores + 1 ingredient = 1 Draken Core

    The ingredient would be different for each type outcome. And if you use green or blue ingredients (if there are multiple levels of a type) then its 1 or 2 less input cores.

    This would be awsome. Please implement as soon as next patch.
