    Yes and no. If you hadn't reached cap, you were guaranteed a DQ with wisdom. The issue was if it was on a PvP one and you didn't PvP.

    You might have been saying this, but I felt that it was a little bit ambiguous.

    That said, I do agree that this is better.

    That is what I meant. Sorry for not being clear.

    I thought it was implied well enough though :)
    The new system guarantees 500 (250+250) wisdom every day. This more than makes up for the reduced mentor bonus. Under the old system there were many days nothing but PvP quests would come up, and those needed wins, not just playing, which meant it was time to switch toons (or accounts) and go away empty handed.

    Ofc, premium players that could shuffle ad infinitum seemingly have lost a little value with this reduced mentor bonus. I would counter though that this is compensated by being to get all the dailys done (and most likely quicker) using shuffle in the new format.

    Luck be with ye,

    Why Grimmag man?

    That would take me all of 8-10 min. :D:cool:

    yeah but that means I have to waste time running map to get there then waiting for that damn ram to roll 3 times. q1 m1 can do in less than 4mins(just run rune circle then boss) then grimmag in 2 so done before my cuppa gets cold :)

    Now that I have seen the new new moon event, here's my complete feedback of R170.

    The new daily quests system is very good. Even though its rewards are mediocre for a char as advanced as mine, they still give me some motivation to play for a little longer and try visiting bosses that I wouldn't otherwise ever go to. Plus, I got to play some arena matches after a whole year of abstaining.

    The new new moon event is greatly problematic. I really liked the concept of having "tokens" dropping from bosses, it is a far more fair system than relying on entirely random drops and I wish it could be implemented throughout the game. However, the event itself is so badly designed that I would investigate whether the designer is not deliberately trying to saboteur the company. It is extremely time consuming while it poses no challenge whatsoever. I can stroll throughout the maps killing everything in one blow, drop the boss with just a few hits and it would still take me about a year to make just one of the sets, assuming that I would play the event every month (and I most certainly won't). The sets are not of use to me anyway and I suspect that they will not be of use to anybody by the time they can actually have one of them. It is a painfully slow, boring and unchallenging event that is in dire need of major redesigning.

    I did not find any thread related to Moon Event feedback.

    For that reason, I am writting my opinion down here:

    - New event (reworking something that was demanded);
    - Amazing graphics - congratulations to Design/Graphic Team once again ;)
    - New set (including more ways/combinations to have more sets). I personally liked the fact that we have the chance to choose which map/set we wanna do. Give us more autonomy and freedom.

    - Quests (I personally did not understand why quests to get scroll (2000 kills) or even wood were removed. It was useful)
    - Final boss (at least Karabossa is not dropping Draken anymore)
    - Mini-bosses / champions are dropping just improved and magic items. This should be changed.
    - Long time to make quests (6 quests required something like 2 hours)...
    - Progress bar: why only scroll exists? Where is some rework on progress bar (e.g. leg item / polished gems / some moonlit lunar blossom...). Full Moon event seems better in that point.
    - Wood drop: one word - low (extremely low).
    - Cubes drop for premium users - 2 or 3 per round. Not good enough once map is big.

    - Experience: i clicked that cauldron so many times and i have no wood left. They could block it after 1st click.

    Note: I am still thinking if the cost is reasonable. But I guess it should be reduced a bit (not 10, but maybe 7 or 8). If the map had enough wood drop, then, 10 is fine. It is not the case currently.

    For now, it is my opinion. Anything else that I found/remember, I will edit my post

    With the typo on the spelling of Blackborg, I got to wondering if the Gnome Mender monster should really be the Gnome Minder. Is that monster supposed to fix the gnomes or is it supposed to watch over them?

    Just a thought...

    I agree! But I would like to add that I also like:
    - Autopickup of blossoms!
    - The fact that U get a currency U can use to buy the uniques, U need!

    I agree! But I would like to add that I also dislike:
    - No autopickup of fairyfire/fairywood! This is truely where we, the players, needs that autopickup!
    - Why is there mobs on the Karabossa Bossmap? Thats just stupid and timeconsuming! Get rid of that!

    There is a bug with crafting the unique items.
    I was crafting the new cloak from New Moon event ... and it was not showing any price for crafting ... neither gold nor andermant.
    HOWEVER ... the game deducts gold from the gold pool in the process of crafting.


    I have no other screenshot and i have no more items to craft ... so you can zoom in the picture and see for your self that there are no crafting prices nor option to select whether you would like to use andermant or gold during the process.

    PS. I can't use my TS account to reproduce it there and get a better screenshot because:
    1. New Moon event is not active there and I can't buy more items
    2. R171 is at TS ... while R170 is present at live servers.

    The " New" New Moon Event

    First of all I am at 1797 progress of 4000 and that is largely in part to me having amphorae keys to open the gold ones which provide a decent amount of fairy wood/fire. I think I'll go to the 2250 mark and quit after receiving the 100 Draken.

    The Good
    - The urinating skeleton is a nice touch and most likely placed by PO'd dev
    - The map is a nice change but for my tastes too lengthy and time consuming
    - Token idea and the 3 tier items are good for new players that are unable to finish to progress further...kind of like kids sports nowadays where no scores are kept and everyone is a winner

    The Bad
    - The 6 quests do not need to be there so just allow us to choose who we'd like to fight
    - Monster difficulty is a snorefest even with my average toon
    - Minor bosses in map drop SFA

    The Ugly
    - Progress is incredibly slow and I have yet to see a drop of Fairy Fire > 1
    - Fairy Wood drops are poor at best
    - In 12 runs the End Boss has dropped 5 Blossoms each time so completing a set should take a year +
    - Not a single Unique has dropped in those 12 runs and nor has any Draken

    Hi mate,

    Absolutely. Autopickup is urgent :D :D
    I did not add that thing because on Twitch they told that they will introduce it (just "when" left...)

    But, please, collect 4000 progress without autopickup is annoying :p So, awesome suggestion!!!

  16. Theusen

    NP Mate... =o)

    Its really like STUPID, that they added autopickup on blossoms(1 per run), but "forgot" to add that same feature to fairywood + fairyfire(50+ per run)!
    And I know they said that they would do so on twitch, but Archeology, Guildwars, and NUMEROUS other things has also been promised on twitch without an actual implementation... -Its not like its a hard implementation (all the mechanics are allready there), but I guess they are too busy thinking up new useless, unwanted, broken-for-ages-stuff, that we never asked for, and that just ruins the game like the Inventory-sort-button, Compare tool-thingy, CV, compendium, etc...
    -And then they have to spend even more time fixing that same useless, unwanted, broken-for-ages-stuff, later on... (I heard they are fixing the sortbutton in r171, so I guess they are pushing important stuff the gamers really want and need back even further due to BPs incompetance :))

    Found a nice plus for the new DQs during New Moon:


    Whoever came up with this idea... You must listen to him/her more often.;)

    I dunno if you have been reading the forums lately but the single most requested change is the removal/ changing of the sort button. That is what I have been really wanting and needing. Does not sound like "Useless or unwanted" to me.

    I can confirm this too.

    And traki, you owe me 2400 ander for propagating baragain's theorem about gem slots on crafting tier cloaks.


    You need my feedback for R171, so make the thread already!

    The new dailies are nice but the cumulative reward part is odd. The same rewards for 2 and 3 done every day a pot and a frag. They seem underwhelming for a level 50 character completing multiple daily subtasks. The same for an extraordinary at 6. These items are ultra common in the PW. Could you not use things that are rarer like keys or gems or just drop gold instead.....
