    Oh i see, so the reason you need a million points is because this buff is supposed to stack.. I hope this is correct..

    Also holy damn flawless gems?! I didn't even fill my weapon with radiants! If i get even 1 of these gems it's worth it lol

    If it 10% per stack, that is 1000% I guess the idea is to run boss marathons for hours on end since you only have 16 min to renew the buff. Still, with 1000%, each boss would drop 3000 instead of 30 and that makes the kills much more manageable. With a full bonus, it would only take 333 kills to reach 1 million, but given that you need some kills to ramp up to the full bonus and it will reset if you take too long of a break, I think the total would be closer to 500-600 over a couple days.

    I guess now is the time to start saving keys before the event begins.

    I already have over 200 and still farming ... but i play those maps since they were released not just because the event (for which we only heard today) ... those maps are very good for farming.

    Do you know a good way to farm keys? Especially for a newbie that can barely do painful difficulty?

    The buff says "+ 10% to Hunting Badge drop stack size.". So if you are fully stacked the bonus is +1000% to hunting badge drop stack size. The drop stack size in the video is 30, so the bonus is 300 (not 3000) and total drop is 330.

    According to my estimation it will need 50 runs to get the full 1000% buff (1 run= miniboss+boss kill).
    If we are taking to account only runs under full buff :
    - let the average badges drop be 37 from miniboss + 75 from the boss . That is 112
    - 122+1000%=1232 progress per run
    - thus it will need ~812 runs in 15 days

    Yes I know ... but you can do it in Fatal easily ... it will only take a group.
    FBI is most efficient map when it comes to Keys.
    Split into 2 groups and enter from opposite sides (FBI has 2 entrances).
    You will meet exactly at the point where the miniboss spawns.
    Kill it and run to the other entrance ... collect the loot on your way out.
    Repeat from the opposite side.

    FBI map, you can do the trakilaki way, or you play on 2 difficulties, one group goes to Fatal, one group goes to Excruciating, group in Fatal kills everything and boss, then joins the Excruciating map as long as they don't kill boss, collect 2 keys there. 2nd time the team from Excrucating map goes to join the fatal map FBI where they wait on the boss. So you get either 3+2 keys, or 2+3 every 2nd time.

    By group I mean, minimum 1 player in fatal, 1 player in excruciating.

    Also miniboss give buff? The best boss so can be Herald. Maps before Gorga is too large.
    Consider 4min for clear map and 2min for boss you get full bonus after 6*50 = 300min = 5 hours without stop.
    You need 1.000.000 / 15 = 66.667 badges a day and you reach that goal after 7:12 without stop for 72 run/day (1.080 runs)
    7:12 * 15 = 4 days and 12 hours

    If you kill only boss you max buff after 3:22 and dayly goal after 4:14 and 97 runs (1.455 runs)
    4: 14 * 15 = 2 days 15 hours 30 minutes
    And if you spent 2 minutes for getting keys now you need 2minutes * 1.455 = 2910 = 2 days 30 minutes

    Other possibility is to kill Arachna/Bearach without minibosses and keys but you need 3minutes (1 for avoiding monsters and 2 for kill boss)
    so you max buff after 5:03 and get 66.667 badges after 6:21.
    6:21 * 15 = 3 days 23 hours 15 minutes

    BP must increase badges dropped or change 1.000.000 in 500.000

    Or you need to find a more efficient way to finish the event.

    I got (122 badges every 2 minutes and 33 seconds) but I must play 3 hours continusly everyday or less because seems that badges' drop are random.

    UPDATE: I can't enter again in Q6 Oceans of bones like in R200 (after "fix" I killed Mortis)

    Trakilaki..do the mini bosses that drop keys (the ones that appear once a map is cleared) also drop progress? If so can u tell me for instance how much progress will the mini boss on fox map fatal will drop without buff and with 1000% buff? Ty in advance.

    I already answered that
    The leaders are dropping approximately half the badges that the bosses drop.
    Take a look in his table (base drop) and split them in half
    However the event description is inaccurate and misleading ... it says "Defeat Leaders and Bosses to collect badges". That is incorrect because not all Leaders are dropping badges ... only and only those who drop keys are dropping badges ... meaning only those that spawn after clearing a map.

    Tell me about it. A friend of mine did the testing (yesterday evening) for me on test server. I was thinking that the Dragon (it has purple rank) which is standing below the entrance to the Desctructor on the Stalgard map would be perfect for getting the buff stacked up quickly. It should drop badges according to the event description, but it does not. The same for the root tree monster in Rockwhatever Cavern.

    Here it is (pay attention to the minimap)

    [​IMG]
    This one is not dropping badges nor keys

    On other hand this one (after clearing the map)
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    is dropping badges.
    To make it simple we can say "look for the red skull in the minimap because you can get badges only from those red skulls".
