    I stand corrected then, i thought it was the same as the sewer event

    Bad idea then, higher difficulties should drop more of event advancement, it's not like newbies can't enjoy this, they can go there with their guild or a group

    1 guildy that does fatal solo nearly finished the event in less than a day of farming, he was at 4000/5000. I don't think it needs to be faster, i mean if he could solo inf it'd be even faster lol

    nice event but the rewards are crap for dwarf player...only the costume looks nice and achievement is the thing for me on this event...needs a rework imo...better rewards especially.

    The good part for SM will come with the challenge... Gwenfara's banner is hands down Best in Slot, it's since R185 that I waited this event for that thing.

    So now the feedback about the progress drop rate aren't on topic anymore, suggestions about how to farm the event aren't on topic anymore.

    You guys are seriusly ruining this forum and his purpouse.

    sargon234 you may have actually been correct; just that those rates don't apply to the first map. The drop rates seem higher in maps 2 and 3, as well as being weighted against the level. I was in either fatal or infernal I last night and the creepy castle (map 3) was giving me drops of 5.

    Full moon. It may not be good, but at least there is an option.
    I was planning on using that method to farm some T5 crafting ingredients for 100 frags. It is nice that we finally got a respawning map with an Infernal II option.

    You're kidding, right? It is only the second of 13.5 days and I'm more than half done with only 6 hours of play. There are plenty of people who were finished on the first day.

    Good event. First off runes of devastation are welcomed as always.
    The progress is slow especially after getting through the quests. But the boss is dropping I believe over 100 progress a kill makes the event done very fast.
    350 anders for entry fee to darkwood path/ castle makes this by FAR the cheapest and easiest way to farm draken cores since the dragan event...
    Just running through everything and jumping to gwenfera event is done in about 6 hours playtime this way.
    Love the event and the massive amounts of draken cores ;)

    The biggest turn off is the loop that begins with grinding the items to get access repeatedly to the 2nd and 3rd map. It's the same problem with Infested Sewers and Dark Dwarf event to name at least some.
    The quests get finished very quickly, so the rest of the grind is just mindless grind. If it's necessary, for whatever reason, to have this grindy start of the loop in the game, I wish it was made in a less boring way. You guys need to add random quests or something, so players have a sense of purpose in what they're doing. The two repeating quests are not enough, imo.

    However, thank you DSO team for at least actually making the group play, so it doesn't penalize players with virtually zero drop rate (first map) as was the case of the last year's Halloween.

    I finished the main progress last night. I like playing this event because even though the maps and boss are reworked, they were before my time so it is mostly new to me. I like the concept and in general have fun doing so.
    My main complaint is that they removed large rewards from progress bar and didn't increase the unique drop rates, while trying to spin this as a positive thing for the players. Its not.
    Also, when you rework an event, you need to release a guide, with unique item stats for all gear in all tiers. [EDIT]
    Speaking of laziness, this event, as many others needs more content. I realize you don't want to hire more developers, make any new maps or mobs etc, I get that, but how much work would it take to make quests that last a couple of weeks? I (and I'm sure I am not alone) finished all of the questline in the first hour of playing this event and it lasts for weeks. Does this seem out of balance? Is there nobody on staff with some creativity to bring some story to the table? You could even ask the players as I am sure there are many talented minds out there. Heck you could even introduce some grindy nonsensical cloak of power type quest, but SOMETHING. Throw us a bone here BP.
    I buy my anders and I spend my drakens like a good boy, giving you what you need but do you think, maybe, you could try to make it more interesting? More fun?

    Best joke ever :D
    Those regular monsters are hitting like a freight train ... but the champions are different story ... they are on steroids.
    About the upcoming challenge ... I would like to warn the players ... don't enter there in higher difficulties unless you are really well prepared for battle. Those monsters in the challenge map are 5x stronger than the monsters in the other challenge maps.
    Avalona is hitting 10x harder than any PW boss in infernal II ... she was taking out 80-85% of my HP in one hit and these are my SWs defensive stats
    Expect ultimate bloodbath there.

    Once again they [EDIT] the player, as always, they are just incapable to make a good thing for the players.
    Thanks for the information

    Well, the event is once again a bad event for me, even after the improvements they made to it

    It was surprising to see an improvement in the event, of course there need to be something bad about it

    But what is the reason the difficulty is much higher than parallel worlds?

    Ranger weapon is terrible, is it supposed to be a long bow or short bow? Speed and damage wrong for short bow, missing cost reduction for longbow.

    For tank, avalona is one of the easiest bosses to tank. In PW I can only tank 4 infernal 2 bosses pretty well, heredur,medusa,mortis, and arachna. But avalona is even easier then medusa for tank. I will post my tank stats soon to show you that I am not an op tank with 150k+ hp either. My arguement is one sided because I can only say how hard it is on infenral2 with my tank.

    Now about the event progress, I got finished with event in a few hours because I used about 15-20 amphora keys for buffs and passes.
    I saved some for this event :p.

    They've been doing that for a while for the base stats for various unique weapons. Wolf slayer mace doesn't have traditional mace stats, for example.

    unique drop from bosses is way lower than last event. At least for me... they are non existent atm.. 22+ full runs and not 1 drop :(

    Monster drop and strength

      • In the Halloween event you can obtain the same items from monsters as in other events, such as Mystic Cubes, Gems, Equipment etc. The drops have been reworked and improved since 2016.
      • The armor and attack values of the monsters, as well as the loot chances in general, have been improved.

        I am getting way less mystic cubes and gems in event maps vs normal/PW maps. Am lucky to get 1 cube per full run/clear of all 3 maps. :(:mad::eek::rolleyes:

        Thanks, Doc.

    The monsters do more damage and have less life, I like that!, the drakens drop does not exist, more would be acceptable if have more drop for unics to farm glifos, the single drop should be increased since the course is long and the items are not useful, only for glyphs.
