    "Some mysterious evil forces want to reintroduce the infamous Crystals of Truth into Dracania and spread chaos across the lands!!"

    What the hell did I read? o_O
    Crystals of Truth were one of the most sought resource in game.
    They were rewards we earned for fighting monsters. They helped us identify amazing legendary gears.
    Those days with CoTs was the time when DSO was fun, before most of our friends quit playing this game.
    What came after the CoTs was absolute chaos.
    With CoTs gone, the entire system of crafting items and identifying them was broke.
    DSO took almost a year to repair this broken crafting system lately.

    Crystal of Truth deserve some respect and not the "infamous" tag.

    If you are farming than ye it could be useful I remember when I played casually than cots were the worst thing in the world but than again if that green/blue gear was good enough to get to max level cap and than you can start farming than ye maybe it was good. They replaced identify cost for crafting cost

    Looks nice.I have some questions though after looking at the FAQ.For instance the red/pink/blue essence only add 300/200/100 dmg or its 300% /200% /100% dmg like the usual red/pink/blue essence?Is it an error there or there are 3 brand new essence types with the same icons as the old ones?If they are brand new, then are those 300/200/100 dmg boosts only working on npcs or also on pvp?

    Will the jesters have pinatas too?If so then we can loot any of their offers anytime we want (if we have the required amount of truncheons that is of course)?Same questions for gnob/emilia the premium npc.

    Also a how many truncheons to open each pinata?

    I apologise for having so many questions but whoever wrote the FAQ for this event is lazy lol xD

    Well i hope ill get my answers here before the event starts.

    This is the BEST event in longer time .
    This event is everything that latest Stellar Gold event versions are not.
    It is SG event remake ... but it has been made in right way. Fun ... rewards ... just everything ...

    I have no time to give my complete feedback I will do it later ...

    Is it only ander that gets you in to the arena?

    EDIT: I see the arena entries also drop from eggs

    Did they forget to put eggs in some of the areas? Stillwater I found 4-6 but in Twilight Downs/Nahuatlan/C.O.L I did not see one.

    Welp, my game crashed while I was in the arena. All it took was to open a chest. Ofc I can't spawn back in the arena. I understand that there were issues with exploiting bosses with the old method of spawning back into the same map. I know that I'm asking for the impossible here but I'd be great if you guys can somehow program a method to know whether the game screwed you or if you're purposely trying to abuse the game mechanics. Sure I might of just lost a potential splint gem / 2dyes / 1/350 of 100g/costume but imagine if this crap happens in inferno maps or maps where the cost to get in is high and you suddenly d/c. I see it happen often and people really do get pissed. If its not from an actually crash, then its from your internet router. This is a daily problem/serious issue that should be dealt with if you want your devoted dso player to keep playing.

    Another thing that's been bugging me with 171 is the update on the inventory sort button. I bet some people hated it in 170 while some others actually found it to be an improvement. I'm truly impressed that you guys read our criticism on this issue and quickly implemented a patch on 171. Personally, I find it to be a downgrade to 170. I use to have 4 pages of crafts neatly sorted thanks to the inv sort button from 170, now i got crafts and gems all over the place. Sure a 1 bag sort button is good in some cases, but not for over all inv management. Why not simply have both options? Variety is key. Keep the 1 bag sort button where it is atm and place the whole inv sort button to the far left of the inv screen. O yeah, it woldn't hurt if you guys added a confirm window to the full inv sort. It's kinda of a big deal when you have like 7+ bags and a 1 click mistake can lead the player into a 10 min cleanup job.

    I can see this being somewhat off topic. If that's the case, then please add a 171 feedback/discussion topic.

    Overall, I find that this event is a breath of fresh air. I'm quite a fan of events that gets dso players to play together. You get to know the players a bit better; Who's willing to co-operate on opening eggs and who's simply just a hoarder/jew.

    just curious but the dark towers that spawn round the outside in rounds 7 and 8 of the arena. are they meant to be immune to crit and most damage. from the figures their armour stops anything from 60-80% ish of my damage and it seems impossible to get crit hit even with 80% crit? they do not do much damage in return so it makes killing them all ok but just very time consuming.

    the rest of the event is sound, although just started so not had full runs yet.

    i dont know why are u all so happy with this event , its all EDIT , for a 5 year anniversary we get 1 mount and 1 costume ... big freaking deal . why did u changed it from the way it was on test server the first time , we actually got some great things from pinatas , now the pinatas drop 90 % of the time the worst reward posible. What were the rewards to good ? is a 5 years anniversary its should have been good. It would have been better if we had a progres bar with 15 k crystals , and get some more rewards , essences , amforae keys , drakens , lockpics etc

    Still better than no event at all. Think of it as an extra bonus that you get from your pw runs. Ya can't always get what you want. If the rarity of the pinata drops were completely random (drop chance of radiant = splint) then we would be one step closer to actually beating the game which results in us quitting the game until there's a huge update. Crafting 2.0 is already doing a good job in this regard.

    I don't know if that was originally a troll, but now with the event on live servers this definitely became a troll.

    So I get to gather around 500 crystals per day enough for just one pinata, and luckily I got an amethyst... But then again, I got a cyanide and a sapphire in the same day in PWs.

    I got used with failed events anyway.
    PS: I can't wait to get disappointed by the new FullMoon.

    Welcome to Kings Hill and celebrate our 5th Anniversary

    The Gnob, Emilia, Safir, Zumpe and Grizmek have BOTH new and old items to offer you at reduced prizes. As a token for your loyalty to DSO, we will also give all players a special daily bonuscode. And thats not all, during our new 5th Anniversary event, cool stuff will drop from all worthy monster, its worth to spend a little bit more time to farm, trust us on this.....

    OoooooMG, I just woke up and realized it was only a dream, sorry readers but it feelt SO real.

    DSO idea of a celebration is pathetic in my opinion. We are forced to "run around the house" 35276 times if we want to taste the Birthdaycake. In other words, farm you fools and you might get a new costume and a hybride of a horse/dragon.

    Sparkling essence and all kind fireworks? What where you thinking?

    For those who arent walletplayers, wont see much of this celebration, thats for sure....

    I am SO dissapointed at you DSO Team!

    It was honest feedback.
    When you get this


    you are thrilled and you would willingly spend all your andermant just to buy truncheons.
    If they didn't change anything I would spend my 1M andermant on truncheons ...
    BUT ... they did change it
    Now this is what the drops look like


    This drop is not worth spending my andermant.
    I guess BP thinks "celebrate" applies only to them not the players ... so they want to cash in even from once in the lifetime events like this one.

    Yet again ... it is still better event than Stellar Gold.

    PS - both drop testings are from TS

    So far (save the ander code) its been a disappointing event. No exciting sales, a collect-and-turn-in event which is an immense amount of work for little reward, strange contests with mediocre rewards (a 5 day mount, seriously) I had hoped they would be a trace more excited for their 5th anniversary....

    After five years you guys still act you're surprised with their decisions? The only competent people working in that office is the art team.

    The "event" is nice in that I can do my normal farming without much hassle (outside of an extra million clicks on top of what I do now because auto loot isn't a priority). You have to do the labored Stellar arena to make any headway with truncheons if you don't want to pay.

    I would have preferred have a real event marked drakensang for the anniversary, was supposed to be a fun event and nice, but.. let's face it, it was poor, you could put more conquerable objects, and make the event more interesting with some quests and rewards and not the same old horses and costumes and thousands of useless fireworks. We have been waiting for this event for five long years, and this is the result, we hope that the 10th anniversary will be better.

    I would really like to hear the opinion of the team on our feedback regarding this 'special event', let's see if you really look at them.

    I'm from an era of players who have never seen the supposedly "good" first Stellar Gold event. So SG for me has always been a rather crappy event, that got downgraded to something not even worth my time when it got reworked with an arena. Seeing SG get re-skinned as the anniversary event was a huge negative for me. The way the arena is structured is you have 8 Rounds of Boredom, then 2 Rounds of Lag. (If you play from an inadequately robust machine for the last 2 rounds, good luck and have fun trying to do anything between the rain animation, meteors as more monsters spawn, a dozen swords falling on your head, fireballs crisscrossing the arena, poison homing missiles, and every kind of elemental explosion they have in the game. :rolleyes:)

    Speaking of lag, I hate how all events are centered around Lagville, I mean, Kingshill. I liked the old events that had NPCs and portals across all towns so I could pick a non-laggy city to do my eventing in. As it is, I procrastinate visiting KH until I pretty much have to.

    Was there anything at all that I liked from this event...? Uh... Hmm... Bonus code freebies were nice. That's about all the positive things I could think of. :p
