    Player Suggestions

    We gathered a lot of feedback regarding the Ghost Festival Event and made changes accordingly:
    • Gruesome Minion Parts
      • The drop chance and/or drop amount per difficulty was modified, so that the overall loot should now scale better with the difficulty
    • Quest: “A Gruesome Remedy”
      • Players stated we should reduce the grind, so you now only need 35 Gruesome Minion Parts, instead of 50 to be able to finish this repeatable quest
    • Quest: “An Errand for the Dead”
      • Players wanted us to make the Darkwood Path feel more rewarding, when it comes to the yield of Saved Souls, so additionally to the existing rewards, you now get 25 Saved Souls every time you complete this repeatable quest which leads you there
    • Attire
      • You suggested to make the Attire more attractive, so we reduced the price for the Ghost Festival Event Attire while not reducing the different bonuses you get from it
    • Auto-looting
      • Auto looting was added for Premium and Deluxe users for the following items:
        Gruesome Minion Part, Sophia’s Remedy, Life Force, Ghost Fire
    • Wendigo
      • Players reported, that defeating the Wendigo is too hard when you fight on your own, so we deactivated the respawn of monsters during the summoning ritual for solo players
    • Progress bars
      • Feedback suggested to make the progress bars more rewarding for weaker and stronger players alike, which is why we added Legendary Equipment up to Tier 6 and 7 instead of Tier 0 to the main event and challenge bars during the overhaul of the rewards
    • Gwenfara
      • The drop chance and/or drop amount of Life Force per difficulty was modified, so that the overall loot should now scale better with the difficulty
      • To reduce grind during the Challenge: Return of the Dead, Witchqueen Gwenfara now will always drop a scaling amount of Ghost Fire, even while the challenge is not active
    • Champions
      • Players expressed their wish to fight against even more champion Monsters in Oldfield and the Creepy Castle, so we added some more on higher difficulties to these maps
    Shadows of the Past

    Jon Sunlair assumes that his family is somehow connected to the business of “shadow hunting”, but he lacks evidence. A hero is needed to help him, but is he really prepared for the truth?
    The Shadows of the Past questline will start automatically when you enter an urban area with a level 55 character after finishing the Cursed Wish questline in Qaizah.
