    I can't believe you are going to eliminate the jesters and make it so there's no more gambling. The gambling is one of the only very few good things about this game. What else would I possibly ever spend gold on? Crafting? I only ever get terrible items from doing that. You just made gold practically worthless, and now the game won't be as fun to play starting tomorrow. This is extremely disappointing!

    Yeah, 20 min in and still reading. I wish the changes to the game will come in smaller packs, like workbench update plus gems and runes changes in one patch, new secret lairs in the next patch, pvp updates should have its own, dedicated patch and so on. This is a lot to take in. Even the feedback section should be divided, one feedback thread per change. I don't even know where to start giving feedback.

    I just read the new big changes, and I began to wonder or maybe it's better to ask you the big question, now what?
    If nothing else matters now in PVP, no gems, enchantments, runes, unique values, including set bonuses... what is the whole point of PVE now? Why do we have events? For pets and costumes?

    Note: No one knew to answer this question or didn't want to say it, but I found the answer myself and the answer is gold. And when I say this I don't refer to coins, so the situation is a bit better but not necessarily, and like always, they gave us something and something else is taken, and last but not least, more expensive.

    Cheers, and a happy new year!

    you're doing something wrong if you gamble gold instead of crafting, gambling should be reserved for top players, players who have crafted

    besides, only andermant gambling should have been removed

    I asked myself the same question. However, reading the forum, there are lots of (even old) players that say they only play pvp for daily quests. They just like PVE.
    Personally I'm only playing PVE for daily quests and in rest I play PVP. I guess the only change here is that who likes PVP only, won't spend hours after hours in PVE anymore, grinding. And for who likes PVE, there are only good news, aka new content.
    Overall, I like the idea. I spent huge amount of time in PVE/events, crafting, for gems and runes and so on. Now it should be more relaxed, knowing that I don't have to play all night the same event map over and over again to get some stupid rune. Plus that I didn't really enjoy the one-shoot-kill in pvp, even though I'm one of the q7 fast spammer mages that just kills players in 5v5 like they are mobs.
    I have hopes for this update... but for now we wait and see...

    In the notes, it seems the ice and lighting icons are the same.

    Old 1h RuneExchanged to
    Old Lesser Rune of CelerityLesser Rune of Celerity (new)
    Old Rune of CelerityLesser Rune of Celerity (new)
    Old Mighty Rune of CelerityLesser Rune of Celerity (new)
    Old Supreme Rune of CelerityRune of Celerity (new)
    Old 2h RuneExchanged to
    Old Lesser Rune of Grand CelerityLesser Rune of Celerity (new)
    Old Rune of Grand CelerityRune of Celerity (new)
    Old Mighty Rune of Grand CelerityMighty Rune of Celerity (new)
    Old Supreme Rune of Grand CelerityMighty Rune of Celerity (new)
    You clearly got our feedback about how scummy the tier 4 (16%) 2h rune --> tier 3 (16%) new rune exchange is (not only this one but this one in particular) and yet you still didnt changed that?

    So, let's be clear about this:
    A player that had five tier 3 (12%) 2h runes
    A player that had TWICE the amount of runes AND spent additional ~250k anders (+ was lucky enought to get 5 in daily deal) on runes of enchantment
    A player that had THRICE the amount of runes

    will receive the same runes.


    ONE tier 4 (16%) 2h rune is worth:
    - 27 tier 1 (4%) 2h rune drops from Bloodmage (effective 5 gilded clovers drop).
    - 9 tier 2 (8%) 2h runes bought from Zumpe (135 gilded clovers now / 3150 gilded clovers after r214).

    ONE tier 4 (16%) 2h rune with rune of echantment is worth:
    - ~50k andermants (rune of echantment cost + you have to be LUCKY enough to get one in daily deal).
    - 18 tier 1 (4%) 2h rune drops from Bloodmage (effective 5 gilded clovers drop).
    - 6 tier 2 (8%) 2h runes bought from Zumpe (90 gilded clovers now / 2100 gilded clovers after r214).

    So you're making my FIVE tier 4 (16%) 2h runes worth either:
    - 250k andermants AND 225 (now) or 5250 (after r214) gilded clovers LESS
    - 450 (now) or 10500 (after r214) gilded clovers LESS

    So lemme ask again.

  9. As a reminder, vulgarity, even masked vulgarity, is a violation of the forum guidelines. It is possible to express your frustration without swearing.

    And yes... We passed along the feedback, but unfortunately, it seems the developers didn't agree with many of the comments we sent up.

    I guess they have press the self destruction button long time ago. Now with this release they just slap our faces with a big statement that say :
    We dont care about you all and your opinions or suggestions.We don't want to share with you what was the reasons why we do that instead of other changes according to your feedback, is our game , if you dont like dont play.
    We dont care if you have bought sapphires in boxes with real money, sue us if you like but remember there is a CCG that you agree with.

    Was a nice game with a bad ending.i guess only players that cares too much about the money that they have spent in game will continue to play this game that is not DSO anymore.
    God luck and if someone will sue this company for this sapphires abuses please contact me.

    Are the patch notes complete?
    People who play on TS reported legendary items don't drop nearly as often as they did in R212. But this is not mentioned in the patch notes.

    Also, it's interesting how all these costumes and mounts can be dropped from monsters or bought for gold. Does this mean that a lot of new stuff of this kind is planned for future releases?

    It's part of this release that is being uploaded to the live servers right now.

    It seems not all my runes were converted. I had a 9% attack speed big rune from the old sapphire conversion and it didn't change. Maybe it was an oversight when programming the script.

    A lot of players invested resources time and money for beeing better in pvp, and suddenly bp deleted all their hard work. That shows that bp dont have a stable bussines model u can rely, and players work can be trashed anytme.

    So at lest players will know what to expect in the future and will proceed acordingly.

    I logged on today to see what 214 was going to be like.

    I lost a little speed despite adding my new and improved runes. Not a lot, just a bit, but considering DSO is supposedly making 2h the proper build, it seems to working against the player.

    I haven't done the quests yet, so combining gems is limited at this point.

    Most of the old quest items are no longer good, but not all. There are still some items for desert and mine event that don't say "no longer usable".

    My favorite is the latest new and improved crafting. I see that they got rid of the revert price. But alas, any good thing that DSO does for the player comes at a price. So they get rid of the revert price, then jack up the crafting price, and if that were not bad enough, they kept the worst part of it all. The absolute EDIT randomness.


    Another thing. Who thought that it was a good idea to to make the part of the map where the reset is to turn grey after killing all the monsters?

    The 1 hour buff glasses expire when you die. I hope this is not intended.
    Also, your pet also disapears when you die if you didn't notice

    I noticed that some 50k copper was added to my account by a script... Now, I lost track, what was exchanged for those coins?

    game crashed after activating quest guidance at crafting quest 1/9. Not that you need it, cause you have to craft 4 greens into 1 blue, but still, game crashed.

    And please change the aura from champoin monsters etc. With the little white circle they blend in too much with the other monsters. Sometimes i dont even see them until i see an ice explosion or poison on the floor. Then i start searching for them.
