  1. The last changes that have been applied to the moon events have been a while ago.

    The game designers are looking into the Moon Events.

    We would like to know what you, the community, has to say about the events.

    - what is the biggest issue with the moon events?

    - what do you like about the moon events?

    - what do you think needs improvement?

    I believe acording to all of the players the main issue has to do with the frags, new moon event needs 2500-3000 woods to be done, and with marginal drop of 100 per round you need 25-30 portals for farm and since there are 12 fire pots in the map with marginal 80 fires per round that makes a loooooooooooot of frags, way a lot to farm at 15 days. Yes you can skip the fire part and go straigt after karabossa but still miss a lot of drakens. Also if people die at boss fight cant respawn at city because they lose the buff.
    Full moon needs less farm but you can't do a thing without it. I t still remains a very easy event and nice to play.
    As a closure I would suggest increase the drop rate of frags or reduse the needed amount, rebalance once again the drop rate for new moon event or make it a better place to farm in there
    P.s. why karabossa drops a varholm portal it is so odd

    I personally believe that full moon is good enough and it doesn't need any kind of improvement,however i could say that new moon needs many portals so as to complete event. In this case i would recommend that you change the drop of woods,particularly boss (big tree) shouldn't give 5x woods,at least 10x+ woods each time. Also it could be great if you decrease the shivers,5 shivers for each portal is fine as it was in the past. Moreover,i would like to increase the cauldrons so as to need less portals to finish the event. Finally,i will say that these 2 events give us almost 400 drakens which is good enough and i like that,due to the fact that we always know that these 2 events will surely come in a month so we can prepare for these events and earn some drakens which need them.But, do not stay in this...we need more events. Ah and do not forget fix the bugs and lags, when we fight karabossa and system fly us out we lose the buff when we come again in map.

    I agree - make it 5frags / map again and it will be ok. Full moon is fine as it is. New moon - either increase the drop rate of wood (is still low) or decrease the amount of wood needed to finish event. Or both :p

    "Game designers are looking into moon events" Why? Show some facts that players want to play these events. Once again I think you guys are developing without facts, just guesses and preferring. Personally I couldn't care less about these events. Seen them already long long time ago. Sometimes its better to bury old stuff to start new.

    I totally agree with Zokin here.

    Moon events are great events that should continue even if they are always the same. Those who are complaining are those who are not considerate towards new players or people who wish to test out the sets/get better stats. These monthly moon events provide two different sets which are both nice. Those who thinks that the events are boring should just ignore them. The event might be useless to some but that doesn't mean it is bad for the general people. Not everyone plays hours everyday and I would say these sets are more easily obtained than some other sets that only comes during events as these moon events come monthly. No one ever forced anyone to play the event. If you already have the set, you might want to farm some draken or melting value. People can just complete the first bits of the event instead of finishing the whole progress bar. Gosh, giving a progress bar doesn't mean you have to finish it. Not like you'll die or something! However, I believe the new moon event progress bar should be shrunk a little. Maybe give the same rewards over a 1200 progress bar instead of a 1620.

    If you don't like these 2 events don't play them...but do not say they are boring,imagine dso with 3 events in 8 months (sargon,dragan,invansion of kingshill) and no moon would be awful.At least these 2 events give us a satisfying amount of drakens.

    I care about myself and not for others...well done that's your skeptic.The best option however is to keep these 2 events and whoever want to play them lets do it and whoever hate them just don't play them.Your phrase is quite annoying "freaks".

    The economics of the moon events have gone stale, the "new and exciting" phase has past. The worst of it, is that the drop rates have dwindled down, so now it's a choice of what boring place to go. The moon events are still a change of pace from regular pve, but give us something else to change the pace.

    I think that whatever resources they have should be used to making new content. Or would you rather play these same events one more year or longer than have new quite similar events?

    For NightWalker:
    Of course no one is forcing anything, I don't understand what's your point here. Those who are complaining are old players and for reason. It has been all about new players way too long.

    I'm repeating myself. I think there should be facts to support decision making regarding development. These should also be shown to players in game.

    God, you'r deleting my post's, those are the only real reviews in this thread.., but i see where this leads, it's ok, let's try like this.
    -Biggest issue with the moon event doesn't exist! Event's are just awesome and i would like to play them for one more year, WOHO!
    -I like everything about them!, their cosmetics, awesome bugs and cool drop rates that makes us looks like jackass's just for playing them, isn't that just awesome.?
    -Real improvement needs to be in dso team(bcs those event's are just perfect, right?), they're so unprofessional that they don't know the issues with the content that they released one year ago? As for mods here, pff seems that BP policy is not to tolerate criticism.

    DSO used to have plenty of events, but I guess you are new player and you are not aware of that. No one is asking moon events to stop we are asking to have more (real events) like we used to have. Saying to older players "if you don't like them don't play them"? Really? You have the only right to play? Remember if it wasn't for older players (who went through all that crap that you are going through now) you wouldn't be on this level. They are the ones whom all of you are asking for help so you can get stronger.

    Now on topic.
    Realm fragments are hard to get. The drop rate of realm fragments was lowered and in the same time the price for buying portal raised from 5 to 7 fragments. That is insane. You can't expect someone only to play for fragments.

    Drop rate. Drop rate is awful . If drop rate for uniques is like it is now ... then make legend or extraordinary items drop mandatory when there is no unique item drop.
    Costumes are dropping more than coins. And we can't sell them and get our effort rewarded. Make "check function" ... if the player have the costume ... he/she don't get more costumes. Instead they get other reward (coins, items, gems ... or whatever).
    That is why moon events are boring. You get no reward from progress bar ... yet you get nothing from drop ... and you realize all your effort and time for farming realm fragments was in vain.
    It is like you are thirsty in the hot desert and developers are keeping big glass of cold water next to you ... and don't give you to drink.
    that is not fun.
    Respect all players ... they will respect you twice more.

    EDIT: What about those portal drops? You must be joking. We are getting portals for another event. New Moon event boss is giving you portals for Full Moon event and vice versa Full Moon boss is dropping New Moon portals.
    Fix that.

    Not trying to argue, but I started playing DSO in late March of this year so I don't know what the drops rates were before that point, but in my experience fragment drops don't seem all that low.

    I've played the moon events multiple times each time they appear and still have plenty of frags. As you can see, I've got 120 unclaimed and 31 - 35 portals. That equals 582 fragments and factoring in all the times I have farmed and played, it means I've collected 800+ frags in just about 4 months.


    Now I agree that the rewards for playing the events are a bit low, and I would like them to be more like Sargon and Dragan events, where you were guaranteed to get something for the effort.

    Maybe they don't seem low to you... but as Trak said, when the moon events were new-ish, fragments dropped about 4X more often per kill and it only cost 5 frags, not 7, to get an event portal. They apparently thought it was too easy to get frags then, so they reduced the frag drop rate and raised the portal cost.

    changes that should take place are:
    statistics:they need to be stable in each item level with the maximum as it is now.
    more items:it should be added more items like belt,amulet and weapon accesory(arrows,crystal,teeth or nails)
    stable drop:i mean that the chances to get an unique item are the same for each one player can beat the bosses 20 times and get the 3 or 4 items and another player does the same rounds and recieve olny one unique and maybe none of it.
    fix the quiver critical value(base)in 45 level i have seen that the critical value is the same as 40 level quivers.
    add a shield for the rangers:rangers neeed a good shied cause they need to tank most of times to get concetrate.

    Your question is right.
    This is all I got and I am playing 6-8 hours per day.
    I got no portals. You see as a F2P player I have to manage andermants and not to spend them on inventory expansion (only if necessary). So I keep fragments only and I buy 1 portal only if I have to enter the event map.
    The other thing is ... as a older player I have to help other players too. That consumes a lot of fragments too. But nevertheless, drop rate for realm fragments is too low now. I remember when those event were new, I was throwing away 999 fragments just to have inventory space. Now that is impossible. :)

    Likewise, during that time period I was using fragments to "complete 6 quests" for my daily quest, and then throwing away the portals! Like you, I have limited space (2 pages bag, 1 page locker) so every use of a space must be justified.

    The chances are the same for each player now. A chance is not the same as a guarantee! I think what you really want is something like "one unique drop per five kills"... or something similar to that arrangement. That is not a chance, that is a guarantee. The word "chance" does not belong in your suggestion.

    I play this game for almost 3 years,i am not new.You probably didn't comprehend my words.Some guys here said to eliminate these 2 events and i told if you hate them and are boring don't play them.Plenty of events this year? lol i am talking for this year and not for the last 3 years...I know that there are many good events,which must take place.But this year(8 months) we have seen only 3 events except new and full moon.So i said that if these 2 events were not excisted we couldn't find some more drakens.Yes they are boring but there is no way to get drakens if we don't play them.However, i totally agree with your ideas.

    No. Not to eliminate these events. If I don't like playing them it doesn't mean other players shouldn't play them. I am suggesting multiple events at same time. The player chooses what to play. If the player got time then he/she can play all of them.
