    Hello, I started playing less than a week ago and I had a bad experience with this event, and when I saw this thread I thought I should share. Basically, I didn't realize that the vulnerability effect from tossing 50 fairy wood into the cauldron was on a timer. I spent a couple hours getting to the boss, and once there I got her to ~20%health before running out of fairy wood. Had I known it was on a timer, I would have used essence to speed up the kill... with how long it took me to collect the wood and teleport scroll I was really frustrated.

    It was definitely a mistake on my part to assume the effect would last, but I feel like that's an assumption a fair amount of people would make, especially new players, and it isn't a hard misunderstanding to prevent. The fifth bullet in the event window reads "Toss fairy wood into the cauldron to stop the invulnerability of Karabossa or Magotina." Just adding the word 'temporarily' would do a lot to prevent people from having the experience I did...

    Event descriptions are often vage in-game. I recommend searching the Drakensang wiki for an event walk-through that will give you a more complete explanation.

    p.s. event bosses are usually tough to kill at lower levels.

    Thanks for the advice. I've already been using the wiki for the event and all of the event quests. Nowhere does it mention that the vulnerability effect from the fairy wood is on a timer and that info is all I'm suggesting be added.

    Which would be bug ... there is no need for average of the quests ... DQ should take into account only the final quest since that quest is the one where you are deciding the final boss.
    Because there is no need.
    When you burn the woods a buff is starting ... and all buffs come with timer.
    Don't you get it? New players are the milking target XD

    Thanks for pointing this out! I'll be sure to watch my buff bar more closely. It still doesn't entirely make sense though, that a debuff for an enemy would appear on your own buff bar... and the event text and quest text is worded as though it is a debuff for the boss.

    On the other hand, I don't think monsters in DSO have buff bars? So I guess it does make sense. Thanks again for your reply.

    Unfortunately it isn't always consistent. In the Ghost Festival, you could use incense in the brazier to remove the poison and that didn't seem to be on a timer. Or maybe it was and I just cleared the map fast enough... But I know there were times when I was AFK for a bit.

    Have you ( dev ) ever tried it with the objective to reach the end of the first 6-block-quests for the third time ?
    Have you ever tried it with the feeling to do at least the end of the first 6-block-quests for the second time ?
    At least one time ?
    Have you ever entered trying to collect woods for one run ?
    The event is , boring, numb : ugly.

    Yeah they left it untouched since the addition of the runes. Should be update like the full moon, plus drop pickup like the new sewers event.

    i usually stop playing new moon after 3-4 rounds to karabosa everytime. the drop from monsters is too low there should be a drop of 25-50 progress like full moon from some monsters like this it gets boring fast

    Positive; The dragons & Rune stones & items Karrabossa.
    Negative; Low droppate karabossa (broom).
    New Moon map is just a dead folder, very mind-boggling to walk through that folder 40-50 times to get an event. Just nothing happens in this folder.
    With Varholm, for example, it's always awaiting you to find a Jullov or an Amphora vase, which makes it fun to play and I miss New Moon.

    I actually finished the progress bar this month. This is only the second time I have done this since the event was reworked. I now feel like going on a two day bender :cool: That will have to wait tho since I am still working alts in the stinky event.

    Such a mind numbing grind for a couple of runes. The gear is worthless to me as is so I'm just saving blossoms for the broom that is basically the same one I have that dropped but is a different collection item o_O

    • auto pick up of progress - please, pretty please
    • update event gear to post-185 standards (base stats and/or whatever)
    • progress drop from queen boss
    • more scrolls as progress reward. As it stands now to finish the progress bar means grinding the omg boring M1 over and over (sure I could us amphora keys but I have tested this for 3 months now and discovered that the scroll drop from amphora has been nerfed)
    What would also be nice is to figure out a painful difficulty at least. Running around for hours on end spamming hunting arrow adds to the bored factor.

    Luck be with ye,

    I DID IT all [EDIT] night. this game purpose should be having fun not bleeding eyes out. my fingers hurt. [EDIT] i dont have life nomore. SOOOOOO BIG MAP so small drop. where do i get more scrolls. i did aprox 8 karbossa kills and 2 uniques hat and belt. my head hurts. conclusion i say this. to enter blackborg. to prepare for blackborg we need realm fragments i used 700 fragments to finish this painful event

    second. there will be fullmoon. and there will be defeat undefeatables. again realm fragments needed. do i get it straigt that this game litterally say PAY TO WIN and JUST PAY PAY we need your money "players" just buy ander to finsih event."
    after this event i wont but a single dime in it.

    what is good side of this event. let me tell you. DEAR new moon event creator. get a medium geared lvl 42 ranger and play 30 runs on this event.

    Thank you. hope you understand that pain


    and ofcourse please make on event notification very clear that those uniques wich are in shop arent drop from karbossa. its missleading.

    @Paavelsons please make use of the "Edit" button when you have something to add to a previous post, since double posting is considered spam, also, try to tone the language down a bit, best regards.

    Seriously do not know why people complain about these events
    If you have not realised they are catered to the Pay to Play people on this game
    Every event there is a way to spend Andermant for progress or for Amphorea Keys or Buffs
    It is how Bigpoint has them designed for the cash players
    Take a look at this sewer event how many people bought an Andermant buff to get it done fast ??
    Now if you continued doing the event or you did it without buying the buff you will have between 10-15 +10 Buffs
    So spending to finish fast then boasting about it on facebook or in the forums is not helping anyone [EDIT] in my opinion
    I do events as far as I want then just say enough this New Moon one I have not completed and never will it is boring and I don't do boring :)
