    Came back to hunt for the full Dragan set and was extremely fast bored.. Feel't like preparing and had over 10k pearls when the "hard" map came.
    Figured out Sargon dropped pearl 100% and then I just took Dragan on hard all the time and been having the set for some time now. The thing is.

    1. - Hard map overall was extremely boring and not rewarding at all.
    2. - Dragan "hard" was boring and not strong/hard at all. (This coming from a 5 months old character by now) + Not rewarding at all.

    How hard is it to be logical when making a "hard" map to then as well increase the drops/rewards from it? I mean WOW..

    Been done for some time now and DSO seems to still be bad at the moment.

    (If anyone on Heredur needs Sargon summoned or Jullov from a map, leave your character name and I invite when it is) Still having 7k pearls left.

    Btw - Bad event :)

    Hi guys
    i wanted to give my feedback on the event Rise on the dragan 2 .
    as this is my first Dragan event i find the castle, the 4 maps is very good graphically and something new and one can Farm a lot COT , Andermant and Health elixer.
    now some positive and some negative feedback:

    1. After doing 25 times the demon mage boss at castle hard i didnt get the costume as well as headless although i did it 10-12 times . I have the 3 parts from the pet and i need the final part from dragan Jr . I defeted him 2 times but i got green items . and i have given up on him as he is rarely there .
    2. As a Mage I didnt Fancy the dragan set and i am not trying to get it i think it more valuable to Dks than us . But i was really playing for the pet and the horse and those Costumes which i dont have . I did dragan hard 20 times or so or even more i dont remember i got the Rusty Horsehoe 3 times ...... and i have given up on the horse cause after spending lots of ess and time it actually crossed my paitance barrier.

    the quests are oriented welll some of us actually argue over the final quest 8/8 but i think the quest reallly made us communicate better with guild or with friends. There are some friends who got the costume in there first try and one of my close friend got the pet part from the Dragan Jr. So at least its not for alll the players maybe some of us Needs a bit more luck.

    overall i heard from one friend that the Dragan Event was Awsome when it started at summer but we both are dissapointed with this one sorry but overall i give it 4/10 but hey its only my opinion.

    ps. i accidently deleted my hell Mare Horse and i asked in the support to return it if possiable and they returned it in less than 7 hours many many thanks for that :))

    and about the Buggs and stuff i think u guys doing your best to improve the game its not easy coding and some Technical stuff are really hard. I wish You Guys All The Best. Hope the Upcoming events will be more enjoyable

    Best Regards

    ahahaahahahah now everyone can enter hard without completing 7/8 quest


    I have 1 more oppinion!!
    You should make the regular jack-o-crate to drop token also not only jullov jack-o-crate -.-" .
    For example:
    regular jack-o-crate can drop randomly 2 or 5 or 10 or 15 or 20 and jullov's jack-o-crate token drop should remain the same since there is no jullov at all mostly. :p :)


    Note for mods:
    You're giving a false information for the event endtime. :p

    It looks like they have ruined everything that can be ruined in this game .... stellar gold event is next ... I am 100% sure about that.

    Now that I have given up on this event, here is my feedback:

    The good:

    The overall thought was actually pretty good. Putting Sargon/Heredur together in Grave, adding the rotating resurrected boss at the top of the map, adding a hard castle and hard Dragan were all very good thoughts. The drops of ess and health pots were actually quite nice.

    The bad:

    Getting rid of all the chests for each dungeon. Making everyone do 6 trips through excavation and desert to get 1 dragan pearl. Making the lvl 45 archer harder than any boss in castle (without a real reward). The decision to not include a unique (head) gem. No type of reward for the beating the bosses in the first 3 maps.

    The completely (I'll edit myself) horrible:

    Putting in a lvl 1 character? The 8/8 jullov quest. The absolute horrible idea of white items and coins for beating Sargon/Heredur. The horrible drops of the resurrected bosses. The absolute abysmal drop rate for bat pet and epic mount. Giving the same type of general loot for hard castle mobs/mini bosses. The brain dead decision to give the same reward for beating Dragan hard.


    This event had the possibilities of being one of the better events, but someone decided to take the mindless grinding that we all know too well and add it to an event. It honestly ruined this event for me. I could deal with the worthless gear as I didn't have a lot of desire to fight Dragan for his gear anyway, but I was really looking forward to the hard castle, Sargon/Heredur, and the chance to get the epic mount. Farming for 150 pearls and wasting the ess to beat Sargon/Heredur for a white item and some coins was so (I'll edit myself) stupid that it defies logic.

    The drops in the hard castle really took my breath way. Maybe someone could explain what's the incentive is for players to waste the time and ess of fighting harder monsters if we are going to get the exact same rewards as fighting the easy monsters?

    I actually gave up on this event to go do full moon, how sad is that ?????

    Event had a lot of promise. Ideas were good. Execution failed; mainly due to extremely poor drop rates, too rare appearances of key mob (Jullov) - and a few other minor issues - which all added up to a less-than-enjoyable event. *3/10*

    And... we have a winner ! :D
    This is by far the best and the coolest worst event we've played until now... :cool:
    Let's keep our fingers crossed, this might be overthrown by the upcoming stellar gold and christmas events ;)

    PS : for those who don't get it : this was a sarcastic post :p

    I lost track of how many times I walked into the 150 pearl map, Graveyard, and teleported out with only green and white items to show for it.

    Today, I had the worst 150 pearl run so far. After killing everything, I teleported out with only 3 white items (one was an amulet though... so MUCH silver whooohooo!). Worst of all, I still only have 3/4 scrolls from there. This is a bad thing. Real bad.

    I liked that the devs tried to do something new with the event by adding in the timed release on the chests. It prevented people from just blowing through the event in a day and then having nothing to do. However, I did not like that it was 2 day wait between each chest. When an event is ongoing, I like to just play the event. If there had been a new quest to look forward to every day, that would have been better imo.

    Only upside of the waiting time was that I stockpiled enough pearls to help friends complete their 8/8 quest. While I was lucky enough to complete mine within a few runs of each map, I know it's given a lot of people grief. I am tempted to suggest that the 8/8 quest should have just been a side quest that could have been launched right from the start so that people just have to find it once and not have to struggle with the random spawns towards the end of the event.

    I think the event was ok. Doing the quests was a bit tricky and it needed lots of pearls = lot of farming. But with help of the friends and guild

    it was not so bad to complete. But it surely took time!

    I really enjoyed the hard fight with Sargon and Heredur + Dragan (in the hard mode). Too bad that they didn't dropped anything that

    I would really wanted to have excluding drakens hehehe :D (got 1k drop);)

    But the only thing I "wanted" from this event was the Sargon book of powerfull shadows.It took 150 pearls to enter the place where it can be found. I entered there trying to find the book about 25 times, no luck. At the last weekend I was already sick and tired farming pearls and pearls, because doing the quests took a lot of pearls and lot of farming!

    7500 anders for entering Sargon (150pearls) is way too much, if the price of those pearls would be reasonible (at least when buy like 10k) you would have me buying them, trying to get the book but since the farming was only option to enter there I decided to do something else than play DSO.

    Improvements for the future (my opinion)

    The quest line was nice! But some may find it too much grindy.

    I think it would be great if you could defeat Sargon and Heredur in the Hard mode and exchange the 2 entries for 150 pearl OR

    that you could exchange entry to the grave pale (Sargon and Heredur hide out)

    So that the getting inside to the Sargon and Heredur (grave pale) has another option than grinding 150 pearls

    because the whole event needs a lot of farming anyway.

    Every time there is lag and disruptions in service, the "extras" like dragan junior and jullov and workbenching items seems to dry up and disappear. With Agathon servers in California, and terrible storms between agathon and dso, maybe the servers just can't deliver the goods.
    Anyone else think so?

    This event is nearing the end so I'm ready to give my feedback. I would say about 1/3 of the event was fine. The side dungeons were the same but the quests for those dungeons were disappointing. I liked having Sargon and Heredur in the new dungeon and I thought that was done well. I still think the Sulfur Desert is the coolest, most interesting map. Having a hard map is good too but the drops and purpose were disappointing. Also, I couldn't see the lasers unless I was grouped except for normal Ravencaw. That was my only big beef with the last Ravencaw event and it should have been fixed. The most disappointing and frustrating part was the effort needed to get the Batty Gremlin pet and the epic mount. My plan, like many others, was to get the pet and the mount during the event. I was only able to get 2 items for the pet and I tried so many times and spent so many hours trying to get the wings. Sometimes I would find Jullov and invite others to share him and they would get wings. To document my frustration and have some fun I started saving the dungeon costumes every time I got that instead of the wings. I'm up to 10 costumes. I also ran through the hard map, for hours at a time, looking for Junior but I never found him. Others in my guild were farming for the mount but could only get the same parts. I like having a challenge with a difficult boss and a hard map but not a poor random drop rate.

    There is something else I need to say and I think it's important. I'm the GM of my guild and I'm a busy-body trying to recruit people. I noticed in the last Ravencaw event we lost a lot of members. Huge numbers of people just gave up and stopped logging in. I had to remove the inactives at a number I hadn't done before. I thought this was a fluke the last time but it's happened again in the last 3 weeks, I think people are so put-off by these Ravencaw events that they are quietly quitting. Everyone loved the Desert of Essences event and we were running it together all the time and the guild was active. Now I log in the past few days and I'm the only one on. DSO needs to be more innovative and exciting in the next Ravencaw.

    TL;DR Event was disappointing and some rewards unobtainable + poor events are disastrous to the future of DSO.

    3/4 of the pet (~40 kills of Junior with red)
    3/4 of the horse (~80 kills of Dragan Hard with purple)

    And in the next event the last part of the gremlin will be a simple event reward may be.

    The event is over. Its quests line is good but Sabotage (8/8) fails because Jullov's almost not there. I complete the quest by 11 Map 30s, 7 Map 60s, 1 Map 150 and 7 Map 100s. Jullov in Map 30 is notorious, I saw him again in the 32th round and no more till 55th round. About quest "Know Thy Enemy", I should know those notes and reports are parts of quest not just coins in early event.

    Quest "With Your Own Weapons" is the only free way to get victory token. This is worse than last Dragan event. All day farming 900 cursed pearls (10 hours) and 5 rounds of "With Your Own Weapons" (4 hours), I only have two chances of defeating normal Dragan (6 min.) NPC asks 9000 andermants for 50 victory token. I can go to a Hollywood 3D movie in my country.

    I like Castle Ravencaw and Dungeon in the Sulfur Desert in all event maps. Old Black Knights' Battleground is better and exciting. I don't dream bosses in Castle Ravencaw (Difficult). Once Dragan Jr is enough. Summoned Demon is bad design for my melee DK. After seeing some SM player's video on YouTube, I thank I should change talent and keep using skill "Ground breaker" all the way to shoot Summoned Demon down. DSO, you can do something better.

    After R137+138 is online, some mobs have no respawn if I don't kill all its group in the same spot. I don't know this is a bug or not.

    OK, this is a heavy farming event for me. Many thanks for a lot of GoPs, CoTs, potions, Drakens, Dyes and coins. I hope I can complete the Black Warlord Regalia next time.

    Should we keep the pet part or mount part?
  19. MikeyMetro

    I did not keep them. Even tossed the cursed pearls on all but one toon that had quite a few left. I'm only keeping the warlord/knight/squire parts I had hoping to complete the sets next time around.

    I figure after the majority of the less than positive responses to the format of this event that next time these items are available they will actually be achievable. (Or Not :p Only the Gaming Gods know what goes on in the minds of the designers and devs. At times I think even the GG are at a loss :rolleyes:)

    Luck be with ye,

    I thought that
    I thought that too Mikey, when there was an uproar in the last event, Dragan 1, that the Cape drop was ridiculously low. So I melted all my cape parts to free inventory thinking the GG's would raise the drop rate the next time. MMMMM HMMMMM, they'll fix that in Dragan 2 I thought.

    Lesson learned on my end.
