    FAQ
    New infernal difficulties

    Q: Is it even possible to have 80% critical hit chance in infernal 7?
    A: It is because, unlike some rumors, there is no 100k critical hit rate cap anymore. You might have to optimize your equipment a lot to still reach the 80%. It might also be worth to check out some of the elixirs, tonics, and physics to increase your critical hit rate.

    Q: As the tiers will rise, do you have something in mind for the augment cores (apart from getting them with materi fragments/drakens/very low drop from bosses)?
    A: There is nothing planned yet. But we will monitor this release very closely and see if and what changes for the augment cores might be needed. But be aware that we know that the crafting situation is not optimal, and we will work on this topic in the future.

    Q: Will platinum and gold lines rate be increased in the new infernal modes?
    A: Yes.

    Q: How can we obtain Fragments of the Infernal Passage for the new infernal modes?
    A: The Fragments of the Infernal passage that you need to enter a specific difficulty must be farmed in the next lower difficulty. As before, bosses have a 100% drop chance. Additionally, they can be obtained via Daily Deals.

    Q: What is the highest possible equipment tier now?
    A: 10

    Q: What will change regarding the HP of Bosses? Will the cap be removed because otherwise, it will not really make a difference?
    A: The health points were adjusted accordingly. So, you can expect them to have more health points, but only removing the cap would lead to extreme and unrealistic numbers.

    Q: Is the drop rate of unique items increased? If yes, how much?
    A: The drop rate is not increased that much as we increased the value range of the base values for unique items on higher difficulties. That means that it is more likely now to find a unique item with higher base values. In general, we tried to change the loot experience a bit, away from quantity to more quality.

    Q: Will there be new infernal modes for the scaling dungeons as well?
    A: That is not planned yet.

    Q: Will the rarity of gems also increase (higher than blue) when adding the new infernal modes?
    A: That is not planned yet, but we monitor very closely how far you are in the gem progression.

    Q: How do you think will the new infernal modes impact the “balance” of PvP?
    A: We know that the higher tier of the equipment will also influence the PvP balancing and we have to investigate further to improve this in the future.


    Spring Festival

    Q: Is the Gilded Clover buff obtainable in this Event iteration?
    A: No, the buff is not obtainable anymore.

    Q: What is the best way to farm Spring Festival Essences?
    A: The colorful essences drop from all worthy opponents and from festival eggs. Its recommended to find a map that fits your playstyle and the power of your character to farm the essences. And never forget to open the eggs!

    Q: Is the drop rate of Spring Festival Essences scaling in higher difficulties?
    A: The drop rate of the essences is not scaling with the difficulties.

    Q: Can you obtain Event progress from eggs in non-event maps?
    A: The easter eggs that can be found in all dungeons in Dracania can also contain False Festival Eggs.

    Q: How can you obtain the new egg pets and mounts?
    A: The egg pets and mounts can drop from Daran the Spoiler, who can be found on Egg Island, and there is also a small chance that they appear as Daily Deal rewards.

    Q: What is the minimum required level to participate in the Event?
    A: 20

    Q: Are there golden Eggs in this Event iteration? If yes, where can you find them?
    A: Golden Eggs can be found in every dungeon in Dracania. And maybe, there are also ways to find them on Egg Island…. Who knows?

    Q: How can you obtain rewards from old Easter Events e.g. mounts, costumes?
    A: Some of the old rewards are part of progress bar rewards now, but the old Egg mounts, for example, can also drop from Daran the Spoiler.​
