    Just do then the bossmap on Infernal II and get your 380-450 progress per run. :rolleyes:

    FWIW, I got disconnected/reconnected when in the Darkwood Path map and lost the ability to enter the Creepy Castle. Tad irritating....

    There is no entrance to Creepy Castle available ... until you kill the Castle's Keeper. The Castle's Keeper appears for the first time when you take the quests A Tale of Heroism 3/3. If you have problems opening the door (but you shouldn't) just discard the quest and take it again ... once you kill the Keeper as a part of the quest the entrance to the Castle is open every time you go to Darkwood Path.

    After playing for few days, I have to say that this is an event done right.

    • It is fun to play with a variety of environments and creatures.
    • A good set of quests with reasonable rewards and can be completed easily.
    • Event progress is smooth and can be completed by casual players.
    • Event rewards are great.
    • Creatures are not over powered. They are comparable to the creatures in parallel worlds.
    • Power players are also happy with this event since they can farm Draken and Draken cores even after they have completed the event progress bar.

    True. But I'd not only been in the castle several times but I'd just cleared the map, including the Castle Keeper, and was on my way to the door when I got disconnected/reconnected. The arrow to enter the map vanished.

    How about they change they change the minievent and make avalona similar to kramparus, without having her tied to a quest or how about having her spawn every run, without the progressive quest nonsense?It would solve the issue entirely

    The challenge is interesting and fun, but too time consuming.
    After the initial run it takes me about 45 minutes to do a full run and yields me with only 20-25 progress per run. Absurd. It would take me close to 100 hours to complete it.
    So, no thanks.

    25? Even when I did normal so I could do the speed achievement, I got 94 progress.

    Less than 12 hours in and I'm done. Total, I've only farmed 7-8 hours.

    Did you bank any remedies or passes, or are your farming each remedy before you run? I had 14 remedies saved up along with the 2x direct paths so I haven't had to waste any time on the first map except to farm some faces.

    If you delete the quest, You can kill the boss every time, but still for the 2 runs I did like this I got only around 60 progress. I did a painful run on my mage and painful run yielded about 100 progress. But that is only if you delete the quest and restart.
    If I continue the way the game developers want us to do, thus completing the quest and getting the next quest, I was only getting about 25 progress per run where there was no boss.

    When I say a full run that includes farming for the remedy.
    20 minutes to farm for a remedy
    5 minutes to run through dark path
    10 minute for castle
    and another 10 minutes for mini.

    You need to spend this time even if you have saved earlier or not.

    Playing myself or with a team doesn't really make a difference either. Because even though you get faster progress in a team, it is counter productive when you consider the time to assemble the team and all the drama going on while doing the run.

    The runs I did with teams actually took me about twice the time as if I would to solo, but yielded only about 50% more progress.

    I am a casual player and don't have lot of time to play. So, if an event takes more than 2 hours a day to complete, I consider not worth it.

    Run in a group... that is the way the developers intended. I spent the last three hours farming with four friends and even if I wasn't using the delete quest method, we would have had the boss every run.
    True, but it is a matter of the distribution of the time. If you don't have much time this weekend to farm the mini, then it makes sense to plan ahead and bank passes. Also, for only 10 amphora keys, I got 6 remedies and 3 paths. That cuts off time too.
    It's all about a good guild. It took no time to assemble because one group existed for most of the afternoon with people leaving and joining as time came and went. Guilds make all the difference.

    Try playing painful or excruciating
    also as baragain said, join a guild, it helps.
    You have 6 days to complete the minievent, this is a good amount of time for the minievent

    And if you find jullov, always look for him, you may end up finishing faster. In excruciating it gives 200 scary skulls i think
    And if you are strong and/or you find a strong group, you should try excruciating

    Also DK has 1.0 speed and normal base damage as a legendary axe, nothing special.

    Event has low drop for unique , very bad drop.

    The rebel here :3

    cdeepal is right. No boss, normal -> 25 points. With boss, normal -> 100 points.
    Forming or joining a group with the right quest loop alternation is possible, but good luck with that.

    I was lucky last night, we ran on painful 4-5 people. Made about 600-700 points in total. Not the best result, but better than nothing. Now almost 1,500 points remaining - group dependent -> insecurity.

    Are you serious? U really think that this method of calling boss is come with fun? You're probably confusing something... Devs should done class balance before do something completely depent from game in party. Besides, this must be indicated in the event guide.
    For all event i don't see any announced unique item. I have completed all main event progress, and no unique drops.
    Cape can be dropped only from Avalona, which can called for once between 6-8 enters. And don't say that buying uniq in Grimma's shop make a sense, because it's not and this method to get uniq shouldn't be the only!
    When devs makes cape drop from Avalona, they forgot to change quests. Many ppl that i know, cant get cape from Avalona, some of them have done the progress, but cape still not drop. When Grimma's shop is exist - many players know that devs have reduced uniq drop chance to 5% (or even less).

    This is an mmo, you are supposed to group, grouping is the most efficient way in this case to farm
    Also, once you you have done the candle quest, you can repeat the avalona quest
    There are 70 mobs in the dungeon, so in three runs you should be able to do kill avalona every run, without even cancelling the quest
    Join a guild and ask for jullov in the minievent map, he drops a huge amount of scary skulls

    The cape can eb bought, and it drops from avalona, i dropped it.
    I don't know if they reduced the drop rate, last time it was 0% cause the cape was a reward from the minievent advancement bar and it didn't drop from avalona
    there are two methods to get the cape, drop of buy from grima,why doesn't it make sense?

    Because when a boss dropped uniq it gives more fun to player, than spending almost all drakens on event, in which you farm it.
    I will buy the stuff for drakens only if it will be impossible to take by any other way (like black or white paint).

    Seem that the developers greeded the uniqs, so there is no point in spending the drakens if the purchased cape is worse than the one that was received from monster.

    The point of the unique shop is to buy the unique if you have no luck or you don't want to wait. If you can't wait 'till it drops or you are unlucky, you have the option to buy. And the cape have random values either way, so you can get the best cape by buying or by dropping, there is no guarantee that the bought cape would be worse than a dropped one
    If you don't want to spend, that's fine, but don't suggest the nonsense that the cape can only be bought, you should realize what a bad idea it is, given the randomness of the value

    You can still drop the unique, are you suggesting to return to the previous system where uniques were only dropable? Are you sane?This is a bad idea, i can't see how anyone can think it's good

    Last time drop chance get lowest from event to event, i think it's 1% and most of ppl supposed to buy the cloak, it's not right. It's not the "unluck", it's very low drop chance. Now, please answer, if player dont get any uniq during whole event, no matter how much time he killed Castle Keeper, Castle boss and mini-event boss... will he buy these uniqs? I don't think so! It big chance that player stop playing this event. especcially if this is a new player. Is not he supposed to get uniqs from bosses?

    Yeah i feel you.. All my runs are on Inf1 and still nothing, so many runs for nothing.

    Hey there BP the Drakens are so damn hard to gather and you want us to buy, augment crafting... Really now? Heyyy ohh wake up we can't spend our hard earned drakens on something that will lose its value till the next event! I spend all my drakens at dragan event and i regret it.. Since i got t4 Cape with one Slot...

    I prefer to farm solo I don't get what is going on with these missions, when ever I come to the 4th map I can't kill the end boss only because the mission don't allow you to.
