    Have a look in ur bag, u might find ur gems u equipped in that ghost weapon there ;)


    I just see there is a mini event on.. Is it somehow possible to pop a quick note through somewhere, facebook or game mainpage and let people know what you are doing and when you are planning to run events? Again, not all of us are privileged to play 24/7 and kinda plan their gaming time.. I now see that we need *bleep* loads of remedies for the castle entry and I've got like 1/2 day to play (other time is work yay) o_O :confused:

    The dates and times were announced in this post back on Oct 24. The 'watch' function of this forum can be quite handy if you do not have time (or the inclination) to go thru all the new posts.

    Luck be with ye,

    So is it safe to cancel that RE and do the boss every run? It's not like we have a week or more to wait on them to decide what's intended and what's bugged... haven't started yet myself... and the coming hotfixes will certainly "help" with the time allotted.
    Actually, there is a dwarf boss xD. In Fjalnir's Cradle of Frost's final version (i.e. post-all quests there), where you have to wait near the mushrooms to beat some bosses and then get the "Mushroom Collector" achievement.
    THIS. I had this problem in that Attack on the RCC event. Roshan was sitting there in a pool of poison and nearly died. I mean, I get it's an AI and all, but making it move away from a poison pool or fire puddle or whatever would be nice.
    LOL, Ghost Cloak of Initiation much xD ? But methinks it has way too much armor for those to be the supposed and intended stats. Another problem needing a fix? That'd be just great...
    Oh, here's that long quest for a puny 10 progress trakilaki warned us about. What a joke :mad:.
    As I said, I don't have it :p. My brother does and his gems are nowhere to be found. The bow's equipped to him. And if you look through the R177 feedback thread, you'll see the gem problem is not singular and indeed a bug that's going to be fixed. Why do people give such naive answers when I clearly stated that their "solution" does not work xD ? In any case, they ran a script to give back the gems to people who lost them. My brother got some different ones than he had... what the... their incompetence really has no boundaries. SMH...

    Honestly the only unique I was interested in this event was the weapon (yeah yeah, 1-handed mage here). And guess what... I killed Gwenfara I think a total of 40 times and I still haven't gotten it. I give up... I'll get a legendary... start farming Qs... and spend my andermant I earn there to open slots in it, and that's that. Or wait for the Dragon Wand to drop... one or the other. Because there's no point in me wasting time to get more entrances into the castle just to farm that silly weapon for no reason.
    The cape and the book are really nice for beginners but personally I'll stick to my Dragon Codex and Karabossa Cloak... Just mentioning this, not complaining that the guaranteed uniques exist (they are a very nice reward for newer players).

    The minievent was quite quick... and the rewards were nice. Except for the headless costume... really... you add a costume to a minievent... and you put a timer to it?! Why?! If it were via a bonus code I'd get it, but for minievent progress?! Makes no freaking sense! And it's a pity really, cause I like the costume a lot... oh well, I already have plenty of garbage in my inventory anyway. One free slot at the end of next week.

    On the challenge I was like: "I'm at 1200, it should be safe to complete the Promised to Death quest... I could probably get 300 more progress in about 4-5 painful runs...".
    Man... I was soooooo wrong! It took more time and runs to get those 300 than it took to get the first 1200.
    And I wanted to see how the quests flow... Never again!
    And seriously BP? No other quest rewards except a small amount of progress?!

    Here are my thoughts being a fairly new player (DK 6 months):

    Storyline: Not bad- just a VERY thin plot and cobbled together. Characters mentioned never appear??? (How about a PumpkinKing to go along with the WitchQueen? It would give a connection to the pumpkin farmers and further some plot.) Animation/flashback stuff would help drawn us in like with the Full Moon Event.

    NPCs: Most are serviceable- a better storyline would help. Ethan goes from being a character you want to help to somebody I wouldn't dream of defending. Vanity on his and Morana's(sp) part is not a "love" story. You defend Ward and then he's a ghost???

    Quests: Most are good and fun. They need to be repeatable so that the monotony of farming for body parts/souls doesn't discourage players. BTW: No one likes having to see "Please re-eneter the map" ever.

    Monsters: All good. Could use a little more variety- if not completely new, at least change their looks from map to map.

    Bosses: All the bosses seemed appropriate and well balanced. Oldfield could use an additional mini-boss on the east side of the map. Perhaps the Malodorous Mound on the west side and the Angry Oak on the east.

    Progress Bars: I found these VERY doable but not too easy. The rewards were spaced out very well, and those rewards were actually fun and/or useful. The addition of keys early on is a great help.

    Loot/Essences: The Cloak/Cape/Shroud/Shawl is a very nice reward for progress- fortunately it can be dyed pumpkin. The Shield is terribly too weak for me to want to equip to even see how the ghost aura thing works. I can't comment on the Axe because I've given up after 30-35 times killing Gwenfara. My suggestion: Have the item in pieces (ie 100). The random/luck aspect would be how many she drops everytime to defeat her. The pieces would stack in bundles of 25 that you could then craft into the item once you get back into town. It's a known goal to achieve. Even if it meant defeating her 100 times, I would do it because I would know it was attainable with effort. I'm assuming that I didn't already get it and accidentally sell it when it was a Common item of course. Did it ever get addressed what would happen to those people who didn't realize what they sold by accident??? As far as the required Light Essences, Shady John should have a repeatable quest to upgrade the normal essences to higher tier ones (a 999 becomes 99 ratio or something like that.)

    Easter Eggs: I LOVED trying to hunt down all the silver piggies. The Jack-o-Lantern with Gwenfara was a nice surprise. Jullov's Barrel was an AMAZING reward. Keep up the good work with extras like that. Perhaps some golden clover hidden in the pumpkin patches??? The lack of any treasure chests/barrels should be addressed though.

    Aesthetics: The look of the 4 maps is very good as a whole. BUT, inside the castle, the library area is a mess. The furniture looks like it was just thrown in there at the last minute. The colors are all wrong and out of place. The Stairs to the Dungeon ought to go Down -not Up...or just have a door there like the Dungeon shows once you've entered.

    Future: I'm looking forward to there being a reason for all the rooms in Castle. The altar in the one room next to the sarcophagus is just begging for a quest. How about a storyline involving some Pumpkin/Witch children to give a reason for there being a Playroom...or perhaps a much darker/naughtier reason for a "playroom." On my last run through the Dungeon, I noticed the 3 Demon locked doors beyond the grates. I can't wait to see who/what is waiting on the other sides.

    Entrances: Please take the Event out of Kingshill. Place an entrance in each Urban area. This will help keep the threat of Boosting and Pushing at bay. It may also keep lag/latency in check too.

    That :D

    I was so lazy to finish the main event I started hallucinating Chipicao's when I saw the mini event bosses. :p Besides that, Challenge wasn't bad, but I'd like better rewards to be motivated to finish it. Consumable costume on Halloween event was a big joke in my opinion.

    i'm the only one who does`t like the DESIGN of the new cloack??? , please is awful, should game designers remake the cloack it is TOO SHORT... just a bit longer should be enough.. but seems a handkerchief, not a CLOACK, just keep stats, but REMAKE THE SHAPE, make it a bit longer like other cloacks...

    lol, I agree, the design prob happened on a friday evening or early monday morning.. I also play around with dyes to get rid of that silly spider ghost thingy on it - I keep failing :/

    Mini feedback: all around nice, didn't kill the good vibes I felt with the main event. A couple of things, though: the quests were a bit silly...
    They could've used some better maneuvering in development. Still unsure if cloak will retain its high armor value. Rest is good. Doable ;).
    As with the main event, no ground-breaking rewards, but it's been fun :). Again, better than the majority of stuff we got lately. GG.

    One last thing: Jullov is such a joke here... OK in mini if he drops progress, but worse in the Creepy Castle than the Dragan event one. No worthy loot for such a family of hard-hitters? And you add enchantments to them... mostly fire? Crazy, even a good group will have trouble doing it (just imagine it on mode 3). Thought you had nailed it with the Auspicious Chests' mechanic in terms of lousiest Jullov ever (and the old New Moon one before that), but this one is just as bad in terms of drops but tremendously harder. Also, hardly ever found (like that pumpkin chest near Gwenfara. I have never seen it once. And I saw it has some Drakens and Pumpkin Candy, minor stuff. Really? 1% rate?
    Speaking of which, some things led me to believe she could be Mortis' wife or something xD.
    The obsession with souls and the "break out to the human world" thingy... just a funny thought :D.
    Nope, no tiers - therefore, I'm guessing it's not possible. Also, not like it drops that often... I, for one, got 1x in my 12th run on mode 1.
    Very weird design, true. But am I the only one who suspects they won't leave the armor as is? In fact, was surprised it came so to live.

    I really don't mind the armor stat cause i only use this cloack for farming... but you are right... may be they scalate the armor stat for character classes...

    Nice if it'll stay the way it is, but it just seemed and made it live rather like a TS-unpolished item, so +889 appeared a bit iffy to me.

    Belated 2 cents worth. As a new "end-game" Ranger (really, Lvl50 is just the start), this event was, meh. About 550 draken, enough junk green to craft 2 or 3 minor blue items (plus a couple dozen failed attempts), a quiver that is at best a marginal improvement over my Tier 1 Full Moon equipment with an not-so-special ability, no bow after 30-some-odd passes at the boss, not enough per run progress in the challenge to get through to the cloak at the end, etc. Again, underwhelmed. I may just stick with Full Moon from now on, skip everything else.
