    Initial thought as to reward: The tier 3 amulet has somewhat reasonable stat lines, but not the right ones. If the resistance line was an 450 HP line or if it was just 10% speed and 750 crit, I think people would like it more.

    I think people are just conditioned to not want resiatance lines, and the speed % is probably of more value to a 1H player.

    Don't worry. I'm pretty sure the free glyphs will expire as well, probably putting the upgraded item back where it was before :)

    Is it really that hard for them to give players something for free?

    The second set of event maps are NOT loading, but it costs 100 Timedust anyway.

    My server is perfect and it is NOT a disconnection, just a neverending load screen.

    What a waste of TIME!

    The map artwork is good as always, but rather dull looking. Gray scale must be easy to print.
    The story line is complex enough, and entertaining.
    10 days should be about right for almost everyone.

    The hotfix was scheduled, even before the event arrived. lol
    If it's rocket science for Big Point, they should hire some rocket scientists, and do it right the first time. Try moving the test server up a few weeks, to let staff debug; or test it twice before live server time.

    The quest line is glitched several ways. Items and NPCs appear out of sequence, and then the quest guide catches up later. I killed Ethyl the bad witch with one shot, the screen hiccupped, and the quest stayed broken. The guide couldn't figure it out either, when I wasted an entry on the second attempt. Another dungeon had a similar problem with items not dropping until after the npc was found, and the map was almost empty. Another wasted entry.

    This is an event for new and mid-game players. The minions are fairly easy, but the drops are very light-weight as well. It passes the time, like a dead end job, and it won't make you rich by any means.
    Blue essence drops are so programmed out of the game.

    The progress bar moves very, very slowly.
    Stellar Gold had no drops and a real frag shortage up front, a really bad decision. Then DSO said they would look to fix it.
    Perils of Time has lousy drops and another shortage (dust) up front, on top of game mechanics severely broken on release.
    BigPoint is good at shooting itself in the foot, and they keep working their way up. Can a head shot be far off?

    New maps seems nice and fresh. I liked the story as well but why it has to include so much grind for the time dust???
    The drop rate of time dust is low. Too low!

    Farm for an hour to get 100 dust, then enter pilgrims past to be booted a second later.... bye bye dust.
    Cool event... if it worked

    Totally not worth the progress rewards and the drops in maps are piss poor. Several areas have foliage which hide monsters and potential drops (if any) Found a bugged quest involving the killing of Ethel the Evil Twin, killed her but the quest still shows it as incomplete. I thought I had screwed up and checked with quest guidance and sure enough it told me to enter map again. Entered and no Ethel so there goes 100 time dust. In the same map it asks for 10 of something from monsters but if you killed most of them like I did already it requires you to re enter at the cost of yet another 100 time dust.

    Next time you want to introduce a new event please don't rush it for the sake of putting it out there as it pisses all of us off and makes you guys look like fools. This event is a steaming turd.

    The amount of bugs is simply embarrassing. They have tested nothing of their new work.

    The dust required to enter is ridiculously high.

    Rejected. No fun.

    OK ... this quest is bugged ... but can be completed.'s_Decision


    First you will have to delete the quest and take it again. (You must delete the quest)
    Once you take the quest again from Malyssa ... be careful you must NOT kill Ethel before the system informs you that you have found her.
    Once you get notification you can kill her and solve the quest.
    I would suggest you first to clear the area where Ethel is ... and then take the quest. (because before you take the quest she can't be killed)

    When I first read up on this, I thought it would cost 50 dusts to enter. That is DOABLE! 100 dusts is TOO much! Especially if you have to re-enter the map because there wasn't enough mobs on it to begin with.

    Solo farming takes me 3 hours to get about 60 dusts on my level 49. That's even going to a lower leveled zone so I can kill mobs quickly. I'm a new player and this event and the ones I've experienced are not very impressive. My baby toons (in the level 20+ range) get dust faster than my level 49. They just irritates me now.

    I had learned that folks who can go to Parallel World gets 3 times the drops for dusts and can get them super fast while I'm stuck struggling. A new player who likes this game enough to pay monthly for the patronage. Pretty disappointing... nuff said.
