    yeah. something seems wrong here. I could not collect stellar gold essences from the golden monsters in painful spawning ground - it appears the only way to get the ess is by buying it.

    I hope it won't be of the serie " look at but no drop " ;)

    Of course it will be part of this series, of course, that's what they do.
    And i suspect that it will shot in the daily deal for an outrageous price, of course.

    They are getting desperate if they need to milk the playerbase so blatantly.

    I bet it's going to be the raffle reward. It's just the strongest pet ever for normal circumstances. If that's purple, then, what is gold? 25% dmg + 10% movement speed?

    Didn't they say that the raffle will as usual give out the long lost dragon and t10 items of zeal?
    In any case, if the pet is only obtained through a riffle, we may call it a day and not even bother obtaining it, we know how it ends with the raffle: botters and gangbangers awill get it and free players won't even have the chance to get in the list.

    This event is just DtU with extra (inconvenient for players) steps and extra (ridiculous) prices (either thousands of RFs or irl money). Love the essence shoving down everybody's throats as well. Way to go.

    Worthy mention: Art team, given their limited resources, providing good stuff. (Gameplay designers? Dont make me laugh.)

    I agree, the art team is wasted on this game, they deserve better.

    And it seems that we need the essence bag as well, if they continue of this path of making huge amounts of new essences.
    As if being limited with event entrances wasn't bad enough, now they make another gateway.

    The pet will be dropping from the main boss in the Skyfall Arena, and the raffle rewards are like @sargon234 said.

    Well you are not including all the variables in the equation.
    Game designers are not making decisions ... they do whatever they were told to do.
    And they are doing exactly that.
    Nice joke ... I am already laughing :D
    Same drop rates like the last few events ... when we got nothing?

    Lets see what we get there
    [​IMG]

    Ah yes ... the Cosmic Chest
    Open it ...
    [​IMG]
    But you need the cosmic Chest Key and its price is 6K andermant ... and what do you get for the price? (beside spending tons of special event essence)

    [​IMG]
    You get this "super reward" for spending tons of essences and andermant.

    But wait ... that is not all.
    How do we get Stellar Gold Essence?
    The game says "obtain Stellar Gold Essence by defeating Golden mobs in all Normal Scaling Dungeons".
    Exactly ... lets kill them all ...
    except
    [​IMG]
    they are immune if you are not using Stellar Gold Essence :D :D :D

    There are several different types of monsters in those mini-mobs of golden monsters. The littlest gremlins follow you everywhere (that may be dungeon-dependent … I couldn't escape them in Prison of Souls, but they didn't seem to track me as long when I was in Eternal Watch); the water blobs Spawning Ground clones had some champion-like skills but weren't terribly dangerous; curiously, though, the golden Vikings were susceptible to elemental (poison) damage … I killed a few incidentally while clearing normal mobs in various dungeons.

    In general though, yes … we're clearly meant to purchase rather than farm the event essence. Which is why this is yet another event I'll skip.

    So this event is only for those who want to pay.
    How are we supposed to get the essences?

    There are golden champions that are giving few stellar essences ... they are surrounded by these golden mobs that are immune.
    The amount of essence dropping form one champion is not enough to kill the mobs around him ... let alone saving them for the arena XD

    So free players can't actually do the event.
    Am i the only one that thinks this is nonsensical?

    Perhaps BP should rethink the economics of producing the game. It is presented as a free-to-play, but in reality has been trending more and more to forced-to-pay, which leaves the player community confused and frustrated.

    Rather than pretend that events are free, what if BP charged a simple entry fee of, e.g., $5 or 5euro. We can haggle over the what the specific price point should be (maybe even $2 would generate adequate revenue for BP if enough players bought in), but in the end, each player gets to decide whether or not they want to participate. Once the entry fee is paid, there are no other special items required to complete the event. No more event-unique essence cluttering your inventory; no longer a need to farm realm frags or event-specific keys; no event cloaks needed to boost drops; etc.

    Instead of focusing on funneling the players into choosing between mindless grind to obtain those items or paying to purchase them, BP could focus on making the event actions and rewards more interesting. The player gets less preparatory grind, more fun in the event play. BP gets consistent revenue.

    Would DSO still be considered a f2p game? Maybe technically not, but leveling and toon growth would continue to be available in non-event play which would continue to be free.

    (For now, I'm setting aside the discussion about the cost/benefits analysis of Premium & Deluxe memberships … those still don't make economic sense to me.)

    This approach probably wouldn't work with the regular Moon events; most players would skip those if they had to pay, if they aren't already avoiding the events because the rewards don't justify the effort?

    - cost of the Realm Paths to the Skyfall Arena has been adjusted accordingly

    Emilia prices were adjusted slightly as well, even though the cost of Realm Paths for gold remains unchanged (as of R233_8 - honestly who knows what will change with the next release).

    @couda22 Progress drop list added, but Infernal IV - Infernal VII are currently unavailable due to a bug, which teleports you into the city if you try to enter on these modes. It should be fixed soon, and I can update the table later.
