Are you in favor of automatically picking up mission items without premium?

    Don't you think that automatically picking up items from missions shouldn't be enabled normally without premium? I've been playing Drakensang for 3 days, I started the game with 3 friends who finished the game today because they ran out of premium for 3 days and now, when doing missions, I spend more time on picking up each item for the mission than on killing monsters...

    I think that for this reason many people may give up on the game without even completing the main missions.

    LOL... Wow just wow.. so your saying that players will stop playing just because of having a to pick up a few times.. that's the most ridiculous and hilarious argument i have yet to come across on this forum.. if you can't take the time to pick some items from the map then honestly you should stop playing.. you sound like a bunch of entitled kids that can't get what they want so you think by throwing a tantrum you will be heard.. well your on the wrong game if you want think the devs are going to change the entire mechanics just to make a few "new players" feel good about themselves..what a ridiculous question..

    In fact, it's a change of the entire mechanics xD And it's not about having to pick up a few things, because without premium, after killing a group of monsters, the whole screen is filled with drops... And I think that players can be discouraged when in such a game we have to spend more time collecting than to fight...

    It can be overwhelming in like in spring-event, where the screen is filled with essence,eggs,dust,coins and more crap.

    But during normal play you dont have to pickup much.

    Yes, it is annoying. You can turn on "Auto equip essences" in settings and as long as you have colored essence in one of your slots, they'll pick up, I believe.

    you've been playing 3 days and you're complaining and you think you'll get what you want? Over something so miniscule? You know prem is handed out like candy in this game xD
    We've been asking for good QoL stuff for years , Good luck having a premium benefit changed

    Welcome to world of MMORPG games. Yes, the grind is painful and slow. But you have the chance to buy either premium or any kind of items that help you make the gameplay more convenient and enjoyable. So you either grind like there is no tomorrow or pay. It has always been like that and it will always be like that.

    Not without Premium/Deluxe. Auto-equip does not auto-pickup; it only moves the essence into one of the two essence slots if the slot is open. You still have to click on the item manually.

    (No, not everyone was playing the game when the Winter Solstice tree was briefly handing out infinite Premium.)

    Thats why it is called Premium !! For you to have something more than others ! It is not fair but hey life is not fair and its only a game !! And nowadays prem is really ez to obtain either for a certain amount of time from collecting pets/mounts or just by buyin a normal premium for a fair price :) We should focus on other more important things than that hf tho :)
