    So I decided to play the moon events again. I needed the achievement points for the armor sets. The last full moon event was fine. I played for a day, and got the set. New moon - forget it! I got 3 axes and 1 helmet. To add insult to injury, only the smallest gems were dropping from Karabossa and only 10 draken over and over. I was playing with a guy who spent 250 shards on entrances to the event. All he needed was the helmet and he never got it. Add to that the usual frustration of being the tank carrying the weaker people in the group and it makes for a very tiring day.

    I had a tiring day yesterday while farming Karabossa as well, but in the end I did get the full set. The helmet dropped only once, on my last run, so obviously that was the rarest items for me and the people I went with (except for me, the rarest was the costume... which never dropped xD). Sadly, mine has 113 crit. rate... which is terribly disappointing for a set whose one main factor among others is CHR. However, I got lucky on the other two items, and got nearly maximum stats - even got a staff with almost max. stats as well, though I don't think I'll be using it, but at least it replaced my old one in my "trophy collection". It was pretty hard when one of us had to go, which meant less scrolls... that led to playing with strangers, which resulted in a couple of very ugly situations (e.g. stranger group leader kicked me and my friends/guildmates without warning after the boss went down... some of us didn't get to pick up the drop). The wood is very hard to farm for, scrolls are more often than not lackluster... so I'm really looking forward to the changes they have planned for the New Moon event.

    As far as Full Moon is concerned, it's fine as you said as well, easier too. The set is not that useful unless you're a DK or SM, in which case the shield might be quite a good pick (or if you want to use the set for 5v5). This one is also easy to farm resources for, and I think I'll be using it for Draken farming later on - something that no sane man could do with the New Moon, given the low drops of wood. I'm also curious as to how they will change this one, but hopefully it will retain its positive features.

    Even Jullov is better in Full than New Moon. I once encountered him in Varholm while farming Silver Essences, and his horde of "relatives" dropped a lot of essences and also a legendary (that I use to this day). In New Moon, I've seen him quite a number of times... but for only 5 Fairy Fire... it's just a waste of time.

    It's really about luck and persistence when it comes to event items. Yesterday I found two karabossa bows, 2 witch chaser jerkins, 2 witch chaser helms, various gems/draken. This was done in less than 20 runs.

    Did the max stats for the items just get reduced? Pre-R155, the wolf shield supposed had a max enchantment of 150% block rate, now it seems it comes with 148.5%? The other stats also look reduced as well.

    Wolf event, btw, was a lot easier to survive pre-R155 for a DK, but now takes less essence since you can tweak your offense to do more damage. I'm actually doing a lot more damage but a lot less block and hp (heal-dps DK with 1H sword and shield), so I was able to complete the event on less than 8500 essence when it used to take about 12000~14000 ess to solo the event. But now I occasionally die instead of just easily going through the map.

    I have been trying to not say anything really bad about bp, but the current version of Full Moon is too freaking hard to play. I think bp hates me. I am a 50 dk, been playing 2 years. I put all my skill into hp and I still can't run thru the map without getting killed by the wolves. Really!!??? It is much, much harder to kill Vargulf. In several of the runs all of the players died. This is not fun. After 15 runs with no unique drop, I quit playing the event.

    Are you doing the triple stun DK approach? Last month I had minimal issues soloing vargulf with every stunning talent selected, except that i erred on the side of max damage rather than HP.

    No, I don't even know what it is.

    Novadude, I read your post again. I will try the triple stun as described by the Drache, but you said *last month*. Last month, I was also able to solo vargulf (with my dk). Try vargulf now and see what you have to say :) I am quite miffed that all the time we were hearing about the expansion, bp neglected to say that dks were going to get nerfed. I am mostly playing my mage character now, anyway.

    The attacking pattern of Vargulf seems changed. My DK's triple stun is not working as last month. It attacks faster than cool down time of next triple stun. Oh, maybe I forget something of talent.
    A lame bug of silver power happened to me. It did not match the exact timing after reviving. Vargulf was immuned and I can't use the silver scroll because it's not running out of time.

    I just did it twice last night after your post (hoping to get a better vargulf shield), and can confirm that the triple stun approach worked fine. I did have to burn a couple +3598 pots.

    I do agree that DKs have gotten nerfed too much, though.

    I "finished" the New Moon event today with my mage. I killed Vargulf 35 times and got 10 draken EVERY SINGLE TIME. Where are the uniques?

    I don't know either. I helped a friend today. I didn't get any uniques in 10 runs, but she got the helmet and the shield.:confused:

    They changed the payoff rations again.
    Our team completed the event in record time. I averaged 257 blood / run, thanks to a lot of 100 blood drops.
    On the other hand everyone got less from Vargulf. I got only 1 unique. But the staff was much better than in any of my previous Wolf events.

    I not had uniques from any of moon events for a long time, but ran vargulf 6 times last night and got the bow twice

    I got a level 50 shield today for my DK. Only 133%, but much better than my old 138% level 45 vargulf or my old 2-1 w/ one armor line level 43 shield glyphed to level 46 due to the baseblock rate stats... but I will hold onto the 2-1 in case I decide to switch to the warlord set.

    Saving blood and scrolls for the rework coming, hoping they are still useable items and hoping the saved items give me a few extra rolls for uniques that I'm hoping are worth having. I know, alot of hoping going on.

    Come on Blood, you'd let vanity stand in the way of performance? Just throw the Misstroncity costume over the top, its sexy:confused:.
