    So they did indeed destroy the only good event. Not sure how did you manage to get that many drakens, but I don't get any. I only get 25 drakens ones in 10 chests. This is nothing comparing to what it used to be before.

    Also, the first golden chest I opened didn't contain the rune. Why do they do this crap...

    I am little disappointed you don't read my comments ... especially on DSO Wiki :p
    But nevermind ... i will explain once more.

    What I said:

    I have opened a huge number of chests ... make it 450+ golden and 5000+ regular chests. That is more than 9500 Keys spent on chests. If one key costs 600 andermant (10x=6000) ... I have spent around 6M andermant on keys. In total ... for testing purposes I have spent over 10M andermant on this event. That is how I get all the info for my Wiki articles ... I get no info from the devs ... I test alone , making calculations and suppositions and creating contents all on my own.
    Now ... from the picture you can see I have something like 9200 draken ... that is something like 1.03x draken per Key OR if we make an average drop of 30x draken ... that means i had something like 306 Draken drops out of ~10000 spent keys.

    Now about the rune drops. I have got only 2 lesser runes of relentlessness in the first opening (first golden chest) ... and never again.
    If I quote your quote from the other thread
    I can almost be 100% certain they have never lifted the lock after finishing the progress. Why? Because I got those runes in the first opening (this doesn't mean you will get 100% drop after opening Golden Chest for the first time) while my progress was not finished.

    Believe me that is not all ... I wonder how many players will actually craft the new Nefertari Doll.
    Because I spent huge amount of portals to Circus Monstrorum ... and i have got only 3 parts (2 bodies and 1 crown).
    1. there is a chance Nefertari will show up in the map.
    2. after she shows up ... there is a chance that she might drop one of the parts.
    3. Good luck with the Wishing Star because it can't substitute 2 parts ... but getting even one pet part from Nefertari is almost equal to mission impossible.

    You are right, didn't see the wiki comments.

    On the drakens, I was under impression that you meant drakens still drop the same. People started crying drakens drop has been nerfed, and then you shown the pictures with plenty of them in a couple of hours of play.

    Anyhow, they have nerfed the drakens drop drastically. And I have not seen a single rune, not even from the first chest. Guess need to stop opening them. I got about 500 drakens over the course of whole progress. It would be 4-5k drakens last year easily.

    Actually, I got two parts of nefertati doll already (just finished progress). Also have those flames from dragan, so very soon will get that will using star if required. But will wait until I use all 600 portals. Don't have any per yet on my DK, so will see which one doesn't drop. So far, arachna is the worst. Others are 3/4.

    Great news ... you can thank me later :p
    Because actually i have reported this behavior to the lead QA (last week) ... together with the chest drops. But I can't see any difference in the chest drops.
    And this is one of the reasons I was actually against auto-pickable event progress. That way I don't have to pick up the progress and I would probably have higher chance of getting those runes :D

    BTW i still have 0 pet parts

    Ah, I thought the same. I planned to avoid the progress, but then saw their message 'you can now get unlimited blah blah'... sometime I forget you cannot trust them.

    You have to farm those flames to get nefertari doll, you can't use wishing star to substitute the flames

    So they lied about runes of relentness i assume
  7. trakilaki

    trakilaki Living Forum Legend

    Got one lesser rune after finishing with the progress ... also the body pet part
    Those flames re not hard to get ... you would probably get them x500 until the event ends.

    I already completed nefertari pet, the other pets i completed in past events

    I opened three golden chests, only the first gave me the lesser rune, the others didn't

    It seems to me that the loot from the golden chest is the same as the normal chests

    Good for you :)
    They were not dropping on TS ... before the last update.
  10. sargon234

    But then they then introduced them as drops from the boss

    The boss is too rare
    It should appear more often

    Trust me i have killed the Nefertari more than 100 times on TS (out of countless runs) ... i haven't got any of them.
    I did get them immediately after the last update a day or two before the event went on live servers.

    Well, Im happy some of you got the rune from first chest. I must have done enough runs to finish progress 3 or maybe 4 times. Never seen a single rune. The few bosses that "MAY" drop solid cores... Dont! at least not for me. The bosses were not random enough... herald 50% of the time followed by khalys in second place with the few other bosses Gwenfara, Dragan, Grim, Djin and Sigris making up maybe 20% Never saw Gorga, Destructor or Balor the whole event. Very disappointing for such a good line up.

    As for the flames, would have been nice to incorporate a few into progress rewards and maybe even drops from certain end bosses...

    As for the wishing star...I disagree with the notion that the flames are 25 parts, they fill 1 slot on the crafting table, not 25,just like any other part and therefore should be able to be replaced with the star. IMHO
    I found a "better" way to farm the flames and have crafted the pet without the star... (Sorry, I wont post the way I farmed here, if I do, they will just nerf it.)

    as for the chests :
    Gold Chest.. Absolute garbage.... Never got a single rune of any kind from gold chest, and the loot that did drop was no better than the regular chests.. after @ 15 very disappointing golds, I quit opening them altogether. Definitely NOT worth the 10 keys it takes to open

    Regular Chests.... Most the time got decent loot drops with occasional cloak and draken.... worth the 1 key.

    My personal take. The event was over too fast. the progress bar could/should have been double or even triple with the inclusion of at least one drop of a relent rune, and a couple drops of 2 or 3 flames, as well as some leg gear, a few "lucky" spheres.. etc etc.

    There was really nothing wrong with the "old" event other than the restriction of rune drops... if you had taken that event and added the new bosses, and maybe even included a few more.. This event would have rocked! as it is now its just kinda meh.

    Heres to hoping some of this feedback soaks in and the next one is better instead of the current tread of making old events worse.

    Thanks, Doc.

    I know, i read your posts

    What i meant is that they made them drop later after an update
    @Baragain mentioned that in an answer to me

    It seems they removed balor, gorga and destructor from the boss list, didn't they?
    I have never seen them

    So far, encountered Sigris, Dragan, Khalys, Djinn and Grimmag for the end bosses. Have not seen the others.

    Looking at the list again, pretty sure I've seen Herald and possibly Gwenfara too.

    No they are not removed ... they are only available in Normal Difficulty.


    If you buy those direct access Realm Path to (some_place) you can see that you can't change difficulty on Yolotl, Desecrated Sanctum and Teleportarium.

    You don't want to mess with Balor, Gorga and Destructor in Infernal III the way they are now. :D

    Balor and gorga are doable, the problem is destructor, who is a pain in the [EDIT]

    But they are gonna get reworked for pw in the future, possibly
    I mean, the trend is that

    Those three only showing up in Normal explains why I never ran into them. I remember a person in my guild wondering how they were supposed to take on Destructor solo and I jokingly recommended killing him in one round. It was "jokingly" because someone who would be running Normal instead of Painful wouldn't stand a chance at that method.
