    Holy damn that pet! o_o

    The cursor updates seem awesome and the event.. well i can't say for sure but it seems cool, guess it's a week of farming normal maps huh

    According to my estimation you will have to make 8000 kills ... in 15 days
    That is 534 kills per day :D
    The pet is giving 1024 Ice resistance and 10% attack speed ... the rest are my CB bonuses

    Thanks for answers! Btw do all difficulties drop the same event progress? It seems like this might be the first event i can't finish the progress of lol

    No.
    ATM ... bosses are dropping
    x45 badges in Painful
    x80 badges in Excruciating
    x50 badges in Fatal XD
    Which I believe is a bug ... it should be other way around

    Welp, event just became much harder for me xD

    Seems weird, i could finish the sewers event even when i was a newbie lvl 40 and barely doing normal difficulty. No way this event is unfinishable even on painful. Maybe they will tweak the values a bit.

    On wich boss did you get 125 insignia ?

    In zombie mode (no eat, no sleep during 15 days) maybe we'll can do half of this event ^^

    Looks like the drops are not fixed ... so 534 can go up higher.
    None

    Yes, as usual, BP delivers useless stuff (big difficulties on old maps) and then has to add something to make their useless, already implemented stuff have a meaning... but this time the solution to cover their backs seems nice (though us mortals shouldn't hope too much for the raffle prizes xD), lasts a good amount of time and has cool rewards. We'll have to wait and see how the drops come out on live... how many mini-bosses we can find, and I guess those with boss not in a separate room (Loxley Caverns, Eternal Grove, Atlantis Above Water) will be more popular, as the rest need map-cleaning for keys to enter boss.

    As for the pet... yeah, what he said... still, it's not bad. Faster than the 100-clover chicken.

    The best mount in the game, the invisible gorilla, the event seems a cancer^2 and that is an achievement in itself, theu monster hunts events and dunes of desolation were the most cancerous events around, that i have seen, but this on a whole new level of trash and awefulness. not impressed with this event

    Looks like its about time we start farming for those keys lol.Overall is a nice event with good rewards (like events are supposed to be imo).Most likely it will require 12h+ of continuous farm/day in order to finish it if not more.49 if not 50 of those from top 50 kills will probably be bot users lol.

    If you think dunes of desolation and monster hunt were bad, i guess you have forgotten the Invasion of Jarlshofn-Hognis mine. It was maybe the only even i did not finish.
    As for this upcoming event, i think the rewards are superb. I mean no event has ever given so many clovers as rewards and the rest of the rewards are awesome too ofc, but the clovers are the hardest to get.
    You said that this event is "cancer". Well, it just started on test server. Dont assume things before they implement them on the live server. I dont think it will be as bad as it looks. We still dont know much about it. Also, dont compare this to other events like full moon, which anyone can easily finish in 6 hours. Higher level rewards require a higher level effort and commitment. Thats what grind is and this event is one of the best to grind for. Dont think that all events are supposed to be finished by all players and remember the players are not on the same level.
    To summarise, we have yet to see this event on the live servers and then we can really tell if its good or bad. :D

    Just got off TS. New cursors are great (a blessing for my old man eyes :D)

    One thing I saw and do not like is the spacebar no longer closes open windows (playing in IE.) Hope this is just a bug.

    The event is an insane grindfest. But the rewards are good enough that even partial progress will make it worth playing at least a bit.

    Luck be with ye,
    Mikey,

    It is said that an italian politician said "To speak ill of others is a sin, but often you can guess."

    Well, dune was absolute cancer to me, i managed to finish invasion of whaterver, only the main event, the mini was cancer too, i didn't try it
    But yeah those events compete in the scale of cancerness
    But cancerness is not about effort, it's about boring farming, hours and hours of tedious boring farmig, it doesn't need any effort, maybe the effort not to succumb to boredom
    It's not like you are doing anything difficult, you are not doing difficult bosses, that reward delicious loot and fuel your greed, it's repeating the same bloody thing hundreds and hundreds of time, without any change always the same thing

    Worst of all, you can't do it in the pw, at least you can farm something useful
    And in lortac, the campions do not count for the objective of the kills
    An event should be fun, not tedious, this is a game and games are for fun

    So now they want to make us farm on that monstrosity named "scaling dungeons" that should not exist until they have update the unique's from that bosses.

    Last event was for people that bought zillion entries to get that cape and this one is for players that has full finished builds with all items transferred .

    So you get only progress for event, nothing else, no matery, no unique, nada just endless farm.
    All this for -10 clovers=1 rune and another rune from the last box + a pink monkey :)) - but wait - usually we have 4 runes/ big events (2 on event and 2 on mini) . So is not a grid fest that they want us to believe it is just an main event + mini event joined in a big event with 3/4 rewards and 1/2 runes.

    [​IMG]

    Maybe is the year of monkey in Chinese calendar :confused: or they wanted to make a dog and they get a monkey instead :D

    I think i will pass this event me and my entire guild, is more important for us to get unique items and to craft then that an endless farm events in maps that give you nothing.

    BP you need some real brains in development area, to come with nice ideas.

    The only thing that worth in this event is that Fenec, and i already have that so BP take your event and put it in your ...collection.

    Maybe it was worth this event if they rework all unique that drop from all that bosses at the end of the dungeons just for diversity of builds, to try something new.

    These drops are not fixed ... also there is a buff which is not working ATM ... that is why I didn't see any change to the badge drops.

    Dude seriously ... you are talking about something you don't know.
    1. this event beats all events so far when it comes to rewards
    2. you didn't spend a single minute in those new scaling dungeons ... otherwise you would know how much rewarding they are.

    Now ... let me show you some of the rewards (these screenshots are from my video made for me only to help me create Wiki contents so the quality is very poor since I don't need big files on my HDD):
    - 11x Gilded Clover
    - Radiant Gem
    - 5x Flawless Gems
    - 760x Draken
    - no unique items? In fact you are getting entire set of 6 unique items

    [​IMG]

    - useless Fennec pet

    [​IMG]

    - Mount + Supreme Rune of Vitality (40% HP on this item)

    [​IMG]

    - essences
    - lockpicks

    Name one event that has rewards close to the worth of these rewards

    Also ... it is quite obvious you didn't set a foot in those new maps ... otherwise you would know they drop many unique items.

    The only reason I can see, why they keep making these tedious impossible events is that they hope we all spend some $ on buffs. Why do people still buy those? If everyone just ignored these events, it'd be obvious to the devs that this way of events is a wrong way. Well, but maybe it's not, because apparently some people just keep buying into it and keep spending ander.

    I can just say the more I'm pushed towards buyig stuff for real money, the less likely I am to do so. If the devs were honest and if I got the feeling the team was making the game not just for the revenue and that they actualy care for the game per se, I would gladly spend some money here and there to show my support and sympathy. DSO team, you have a lot to learn from the GGG guys.

    When I first heard there would be scaling dungeons, I was pretty pleased, because I thought it was a shame that we just leave the old maps behind once we level up and get somewhere else.
    But currently it's not really so much fun. And to have an extremely grindy event there only makes it worse. So... agreed.
    Although the rewards are pretty cool, imo.

    I think the rewards are amazing. But no rewards really justify the monstrous grind we have to do. What I mean is that what you do in the game is supposed to be fun. And the rewards should be just a bonus to that.

    But currently the game makes you do boring, tedious things over and over again just to finally get the reward and to never want to see the event again in your entire life.
    And in fact sometimes you don't even get the reward despite all the grind - it's probably not the case of this particular event since the rewards are not drop rate dependent, but you know what I mean (Gwenfara uniques and such).

    The scaling dungeons are actually rewarding, the sad thing is that they don't give materi, but if they drop more andermants and crafting resourced, then it is good. The goblin drops gold, so that compensates the materi

    I suggest you start farming your keys now, you'll need them
    Let's hope the drops become a bit higher
    Are they adding a buff of some sort?i have seen one you get from killing bosses, that'll help with farm
    Keys can be easy to farm, just do the shortest dungeons in group and use the final teleport to restart: if there are different paths, split the group so clearing the map is faster

    But the rewards are very good, so a good amount of work is required, obviously, the problem is that it is tedious, not the work needed

    Damn, I apologize if I stared spitting lava about purchasable buffs. If there are none, well I'm sorry :) Still it's gonna be grindy, I'm pretty sure. It is already, actually as we need to start farming the keys now.
    And speaking of short dungeons, Foxarrific Burrow of Invenstigation's HQ is a good one, isn't it? It's the shortest, I guess.

    There might be a community challenge on FB as an addition, so perhaps the rewards may become even better. Btw. I appreciate these community challenges a lot, so it's not like I'm hating everything.
