    I got it once in fatal mode, on liveserver.

    ΣMiwel Count Count

    I think it might have something to do with "spawn clusters" being different in Normal than in higher difficulties. Remember when they announced that in one update, in scaling normal dungeons? It was when they added those random guardian mobs to those maps.

    They have to, but they are not present since the begin... they spawn once you step on them. Since you can step on them after you've cleared the map already, you may see them after you've cleared the map. I haven't tested it, they might indeed not count, but I think they do count after all.

    To be sure, it would take leaving one arms somewhere, then clearing the map, then returning to the place where you left them.
    • If the sentinel spawns and the arms are still there, it would confirm that they don't have to be killed.
    • If the sentinel spawns and the arms are no longer there, it means that either you've killed them accidentally, or sentinel spawns regardless and purges the map of arms.
    • If the sentinel doesn't spawn and the arms are still there, kill the arms,
      • If he spawns, it means you have to kill the arms.
      • If he doesn't spawn, find the missing mob, kill the sentinel, and retry the test.
    • If the sentinel doesn't spawn and the arms are no longer there, it means you've killed them accidentally. Find the missing mob, kill the sentinel, and retry the test.

    Does someone know how to enter the part with the poisonous ground?
    Or is that only "open" during the Mini event?

    I've not been in the castle yet, what little is written by Event: Use light essences to defeat witchqueen Gwenfara and her minions indicates that u need light essences to kill everything in the castle (previous time light essences were only needed to kill the queen)?

    It is not effective to collect essence on Oldfield map. Get a group, farm Sophia remedy by clearing Oldfield map and killing spawned Sentinel. Pickup minion parts/mystic cubes/gems only. An average group can do it in 3 minutes (hint: use event window + start button to teleport to the Oldfield entrance). It is much more effective to farm 1 sophia remedy in 3 minutes and use it to enter 2nd map on infernal3 and farm essence there.

    map 1: Farmear many bottles of sofia and pieces of meat until November 8.
    Map 2: Farmear essences in infernal and perform minievento
    map 3: during the minievento look for ingredients for buff and for the invocation of Wendigo

    Recommendation: play the event intelligently and be patient, just 2 hours per day for 1 month is enough.

    sorry for my English

    The upper part of the forest will be accessible during the second part of the event, coming in a few days . However, you will need to collect from Gwenfara items called Scary Skulls (if I'm not mistaken) that will allow you to get the protection of Salamander in order to enter the area (Scary Skulls will be available only during the secondary event).


    Correct. You will need to use light essences in the whole area of the Castle in order to kill mobs and Gwenfara.

    Hi,

    Finally a event that deserve my time due to the awards and one can make it without mattering in what difficulty you do it. i started being a bit of fed up of those events you must do it in inf 1 or 3 or 4 to fill a bar.

    But i have a question about this one. Does the extra pumpking appear in this one like in previos ones? I mean the one next to the one with the sword stabed this way we could get more progress.

    Thanks, greetings and good drop...

    I have run many normal maps solo. Until I started using speed pet and speed buff, I couldn't get the sentinel to spawn. After I changed to speed pet and activated a speed buff, I got the sentinel 5 times in a row on normal, then 3 times with no sentinel (doing the exact same clear pattern on all 8). Next day I got a mix. It seems to me, that running around when I don't get the sentinel, I triggered one of the arms but due to the spawn delay after trigger, it appeared off the screen and I was unaware I'd triggered it. Then when I got done, the time it takes to run check is too much and respawn starts occuring, at which point you've lost that sentinel.

    Now it seems to me that you get a little more time if your running on painful. However, where I'm using no essence on Normal, the lack of essense on painful seems to slow the progress down enough to hit/miss getting the sentinel, thus tonight I'm going to try Painful with white essence and I'm betting that I'll get the sentinel every time.

    Julov: I've seen the barrel in groups twice (Inf4 [5 party] and Inf3 [3 party]). And for those who haven't found it yet, you NEED light essence to kill Julov and his family (they're all there).

    Pick up all the esssence in Oilfield that you find (the higher the level the larger the stacks, finally). It isn't near as efficient as spending time in the Path, but it does add up. And if you can survive, the Oilfield on Inf3 give stacks of 4 / 12 / 20. Top end on Inf 4 is 22 light essence. Since the start of the event before I found out about the sentinel, I was farming Inf3 and got some 25k essence in the first 3 days (P.S. I'm barely into the III progress bar.) However, now with some 63k light essence, I'm more focused on the sentinel and those Sophia's potions.

    Moderators: Please suggest with utmost urgency and player emphasis that all players want auto pickup of ALL ESSENCE, Lockpicks, and Spirit Stones. Nobody ever leaves these 3 items behind.

    Try to farm m1 in a group, does not matter if it contains 2-3-4-5 players, you'll never miss the sentinel.

    It's almost always dead arms - it's good to remember where are those and just try to skip those places on map. This way you have automatic way to counter issue. As for respawn i'm really suprised that there is any. I honestly thought they removed it as i waited once or twice a little bit to see if i get respawn and nothing I guess i was too lazy and just picked too easy mode :p

    I'm gonna suprise you but I actually sometimes don't pick spirit stones - in fact I would never pick them but they look same as lockpicks so I don't pick them only from time to time when i realize it's stone. I periodically even sell couple hundreds in shop for "astonishing" amount of gold because why not? It's at least somewhat satisfying in odd way. Would be good idea if they have different icon than lockpicks so i can pass those :D or they can be sold for much higher gold value. Autopick could be nice but i would prefer much, much more different icon so I can just assert dominance on map leaving those behind :p

    Different playstyles, different needs ;) "Never" is always risky ^^

    There's an exception to every rule.

    And you are in the 0.00000001% that would pass by something so valuable.

    Or you don't res anyone and so have no need for them. If so, I'm betting you mostly solo.

    you think 1 month is enough? 500+ kills gwenfara for ghost fire for mini 2h per day? This and christmas event are the worst in game now. 24/7 grind and praying for end events

    I'm only solo of course, besides those rare cases i'm helping sb I play in group only at Dragan Event and only boss.
    I just mentioned that to show "never" is risky assumption. I know i'm very rare case but those happens and for me stone is just 1,5 silver. It's such low value that i really prefer to show a middle finger to it and leave on map. Autopickup of those would seriously piss me off :p

    I think stones, lockpicks and yarn should have just slight different colours aureola so you can identify them easier. Stone for example i would never pick, yarn only if it's next to other items so no movement needed and lockpicks every time especially i'm mage so Stalgard farm is on the menu since last patch. That's of course mine own criteria but i guess you can find more players that have some hierarchy in those not only such extreme case with stones as me.

    Definately agree with this.

    Hear that DEVs??? Get some more varied satchels to distinguish different items.

    I have few questions.
    1. Are ghost fires stacking up only to 50 or you can farm it to 1000 and make event without any break?
    2. If you open 30min buff this buff will disappear when you leave map or you can run few maps with 1 buff?
    3. If you got 200 ghost fires and you use it for mini your ghost fires will disappear all (like this is with q2 mushroms) or only 50?

    Hi again. I see nobody knows about the pumpkin i talked above.. any way, let's see if someone may help me to know how many progress you get in the mini that stars tomorrow,cos before, at least in spanish forum, there was a guide, but now it seems we are playing events blindly.

    It's supose you may choose the time for thats charms work to, but what's the difference between 30 and 5 min a part of the time in progress in differents levels or at least in some of them? is there someone of you who played it in test server to give us a clue? this way we may know if it deserve our time to do it or not.

    Thanks and good drop...

    Those hands don't count as a mob apparently, so you don't have to kill them for the mini boss to spawn. The centinel always spawns when every mob has been cleared, so you definitely forgot one somewhere :p.

    It is probably removed.
