    The only issue is that this new game is ages away from releasing, probably over a year.

    We should organise a boycott of DSO until BP are forced to listen to us by reverting the game as it was just after the Balor expansion. I’m seriously considering this...

    it won't work and reverting back to that time isn't the right idea

    Do you want to remove all the good ideas that they introduced since they introduced the balor expansions? I don't want, i want to keep my new mounts, the pets, the collector's bag, gear customization,scaling dungeoins,ecc.

    i want to keep the new sets

    This is reactionary thinking and it doesn't work
    Thinking should be progressive: want to fix pvp? Easy, implement trakilaki's suggested fix from the DSO wiki
    Want to fix pve? Ok, nerf the bosses' life, dmg and defenses and make them actually difficult by giving tehm actual AI, artificial intelligence, which is what makes them challenging
    Remove what they have today, which is AS, artificial stupidity

    You don't need to revert back to remove bad changes and bad ideas, you need to remove them and rework them

    You can even keep events with multiple bars, but make them a little bit faster to complete, making them relaxing and not tedious grind and boredom

    Tbh I would rather play that than the game as it is now.

    In their latest live stream they were quite clear about this. They think running a "classic" server would cause too much problems to them, and they are sure most people want the game to progress and play as it does.

    I keep coming back to playing every now and then just because there is some new content being released. It's not much, and we haven't received a real content expansion in almost 3 years(!), but simply put- new stuff is what makes me play. I don't see myself playing this game in some 2014/15 state that may have been cool- Idk, I don't quite remember those times; but it would be frozen in time with no prospects of updates.

    At the same time, I admit updates haven't been amazing since then. I still have some hope. I have been quite pleased with the drop settings since r214. It's no big deal, but I see it as a spark of hope.

    You’re right, it’s too much to hope for. I guess we all gotta put up with this for now and hope BP sort a lot of issues out with the game eventually.

    It is not the number of bars, it is that it becomes eternal, without going any further, event of wolves and witches, one is glad to do it and the other does not bother to start it, in wolves you do it fast and you have time to go to look for the weapon or cores or help the little ones, in witches there is almost no time left for you unless you are 24/7 the days of the event.

    If they copied the wolf system for the other events a little bit, it would be more agile everything, there would be plenty of time to do the event, help and even have fun, but as long as they continue doing all the events like that of bruajs, having to be attached to the PC 24/7 there will be more people like me who don't even bother to start it or blow it if it ends or not

    Even making it Newmoon style grind would be fine. It's around 7h of play - at least for me - and no forcing to grind high inf. So if they make 30 days event without forcing high inf + 2h per day that would be totally fine in my book. So far those events are either setup for 3-4h per day or slightly shorter but forcing inf III/inf IV which are really tough for solo players no matter how you look at it.
    I also don't bother doing events due to lack of time and not worthy rewards - I just do them to 1 ez progress bar threshold and than leave it. For me it's just constantly around 33% too long bar to try finish the event.

    I missed the update on cloaks. Could someone please help me understand what’s been done with cloaks? I heard that they’ve introduced new ones but idk anything more about them.

    This is not an issue, rather it gives the last chance. I perfectly understand they do not have the resources of Americans and Koreans, but knowing in advance what is gonna happen should push them to improve the efforts, maybe starting from the financing source if required.

    Or, simpler, they won't do nothing. After all, they manage other titles that, perhaps, already give them a living. Why therefore continue to go mad on that only product (in the world) that still uses Nebula as game engine?

    Nah, who cares? If they don't care/can't, should I?

    Worth of mention is the new possibility to craft a cloak from scratch, from improved to legendary grade, just having completed the quest Cover your back (and, as a prerequisite, the quest From disaster to master). Just go to youtube and search for some "tutorial".

    Another possibility is to dedicate yourself to searching (the chance to find them is almost infinitesimal) the new unique cloaks that Herald and M'Edusa could kindly drop when you kill them. You will not find the cloak directly, but the raw material you need to create them: again, stay ready to sacrifice a big gem at the purpose.

    If you scroll down those pages on the Wiki and you look at comment section, you may see the pictures of both the cloaks and their related stats that I uploaded a while ago.

    In a next release (new year) all the bosses will have the ability to drop a unique, different cloak.

    Actually I know nothing about what’s happened to cloaks for the last year or so. Idk what cloaks people are using now and what these new cloaks are/how to obtain them.

    I also noticed bosses are way harder now compared to a year ago. What the hell have they done to Arachna? She’s near impossible to beat on my low level DK.

    I know these changes probably didn’t occur in R225 so forgive me for being somewhat off topic.

    You can now craft your own cloaks. When you first get a random mob drop of a bobbin of yarn, a new set of quests will open up in the Resistance Command Center. Time consuming to gather the ingredients (I think I'm on quest 5 of 6 building up enough plain yarn so I can craft golden thread, which means I can't craft the "best" items yet); expensive crafting; more randomness in the crafting process; questionable value of the final results. Bleh. I'm not worrying about cloak crafting, and instead continue using a Gwenfarra cloak from last year's Halloween event. The cloak crafting system came up several releases ago.

    About the same time they buffed the HP of the bosses; I can't recall if the devs increased their damage as well, but the bosses sure are more of a pain to kill just because you're exposed to their attacks that much longer waiting for their lifeblood to much more slowly drain away.

    Monsters upgrade happened in r. 214 and yes it's much harder from inf I up. Fatal was barely touched and mods below at all. There is now big difficulty jump from fatal to inf I and from inf III to inf IV.

    Cloaks changes idr which release was but sth similiar. As for cloaks people use mostly same things as before, difference is now cloaks are on t.8 and we have transfered enchantments in. From new cloaks worth mentioning there is basically only Herold one and maybe for DK Medusa's but idk what DK's are wearing in cloak slot. Both craftable with token drop and golden yarn. Only one, however big issue, is cloak of hero was removed as loot from Khaly and now you have to rng it from cloak craft which is absolutely bonkers. If sb didn't have it before he shouldn't count on getting it right now :p

    If you making new cloak in near future I recomend first tiering it up if you need to and only after putting in enchantments.

    Hi, I have a question about this jewel of Furtherance (solstice star), which was related to the winter event. This winter event, I did not see him in progress ... the jewel is discarded? .... do you have any information what changes have been made to it?

    If I remember it correctly then the Solstice star is final reward of each mini event Infernal4 progress bar. So you can get up to 3 of them.
