    Not that we had a long time to play, since the servers are going down again. But the drop on the bone coins is low and we are not going to complete it. As long as you respect the players that they don't want to give their precious anders for some blessing that lasts couple of minutes. The "event" is boring. The development team is constantly dissatisfies the players due to their slow events, you know we can't be all day in front our PC. STOP making slow events. Make them more difficult and increase drop if you want to make them boring. You ruined the dwarf heist event and i lost one precious jewel because you can't balance the things around here. If you don't want this event to die before it starts do something about the drop. Really i don't want my hair turn gray when i play. Btw today the bigpoint servers were hacked?DDoS attack? Can you tell us? we are curious :D

    well what to say 4 progress 1st run and 5 the second must say i agree with most you do not know what you are doing 17 days to finish, more like 17 months. do you think we sit all day at home playing this game, sack the guy who made this event as for me 1k runs to pws is a joke and i think most will agree do you read any feedback, as a player of 4 years this is the bottom of the barrell event and i quit playing this mind numming grind event regards steve

    So, in 30 mins playing q2 fatal with a good team i got around 10 progress. If you do the calculations you'll end up with the conclution that it takes around 9 days to finish the whole event. That is 9 full days that you played all 24 hours......... How do you expect us to finish this event??? We have lives aswell. We don't sit in a computer 20 hours a day. The only way to actually finish the event is to buy your buffs. The only one thats actually worth buying is the 2.5k one. Lets say you buy it, with an avarage of 10 drops / 30 mins --> 2.5k ander = 200 progress. To finish the event like that will need 21 hours (acceptable) and 52k ander (not acceptable). Why do i have to pay 35 euros to finish an event thats supposed to be free and will give an advantage over the ones that didn't finish it once the new levels come out (i assume, correct me if i'm wrong)?
    And as a side note. When the new levels come out will there be enough missions to level up? Or will it become a grind fest again, a repeat of lvl 48 - 50 only 100 times more boring.
    I have to say, i love this game and i have spend a fair amount of money on it because of that and i'm sure i'm not the only one. But BP keeps letting us down again and again. When they do one thing right (ex. new Full Moon) they ruin 10 times more (ex. new New Moon, this event, deluxe)

    Edit: (5 mins later): This is a position i'm sure a lot of players like me share and i would like to hear an official answer to it (even though i'm sure i won't get one)

    HI all, some good suggestions about the best drop rate of bones?
    Which maps?

    I tried Nanhuatlan and it was piety
    I tride Q1 Q2 Q3 mod1 and mod3 and nothing changed ( 20 progress in a complete row : map1 map2 and boss )

    Another pathetic grindfest

    I was running Q3III and got 168 in 2 hours of farming. That comes out to about 1.4 dust per min. At that rate, it will take about 3000 min or 50 hours. Never use a time sample as small as 30 min. Randomness reigns over small samples. The biggest reason to take a large sample is to average out the occasional drops of 2x or 5x. In your example of 10 drops in 30 min, I could say that I got 10 in as little as 5 min when I have a drop of a 5, a 2, and a couple 1s in rapid succession.

    I also ran about 30 min in painful and the drop rate felt about the same per number of monsters and the stack sizes were the same (1/2/5), so that should result in faster drop rates.

    Total, by my estimate, it will take about three hours of farming a day to complete this event. That is more than reasonable.

    To me, this reminds me of the pre-Lor'tac event but with less grind because it doesn't require us to change our normal farming routine. Instead of having to run a totally unrewarding map hundreds of times, we can farm our favorite PWs and get plenty of progress. The only thing that is not efficient to farm is bosses because they don't drop enough progress to justify the time wasted on them vs farming in Q1, Q3 or the like. There will be plenty of people who won't finish it, but there will be plenty more (like myself) who will do what we normally do and finish the event by accident.

    You forget thought that there are new players (like me) that can't play on fatal. It's not reasonable at all. Well not that i will play it like that.

    And you forgot to read all my post.
    Fatal isn't faster because the stack sizes are the same. Fatal is slower because you are fighting harder monsters. So if I can average about 84 in an hour on fatal, newer players should be able to average near that on painful.

    And that goes back to what I said here:
    You don't "play" this event. You farm like normal, and what you get is what you get. The only difference is that you may do fewer bosses or play an extra hour here or there that you may not other wise do because you want the rewards.

    I get what you are saying, however i have a couple of questions:
    First, how much time do you have every day to farm on PW?
    Did you farm alone or with a team?
    If you are farming with a team, did you randomly join a team or was it put together by your guild?

    37 fragments for 1 hour 45 min q2 farming.
    37/1.75= 21.14..... event progress/hour.
    4200 to finish event/21.14..... = 198.67 hours to finish event.
    17 days of event would mean 11.68 hours per day, and the event isn't even 17 days.

    I have a full time job and a family and I'm not sacrificing my sleep or wallet. Honestly these events are a bit insulting to me as a player.

    If you want to make an event fun to play in the future:
    1. No event should have more then a maximum 2-3 hours/day requirement to finish.
    2. Powerups should shorten the time by half, price of 2500 ander is okey.
    3. If you want me to buy the powerups please make the events finishable without powerups rougly within the time limit I suggested above because: If you give me an event which is not finishable without paying it tells me one thing, you are more interested in my wallet then supplying a product that is enjoyable and fun. If you on the other hand make the events finishable within 2-3 hours/day I won't feel like I'm being robbed and will be much more willing to buy stuff and support the company.
    4. Stop making events so complicated, simplify. If your event requires me to gather item A to enter map B so I can gather item C to enter map D so I can gather item E to kill boss's too complicated! Kill monsters to enter map, gather event progress within the map until you're done.

    If you follow these suggestions you would make at least me throw my money at your company.

    I have the feeling that q2 has lower drop chance than other q.... I got in a q3 fatal with a team and got around 10 in 5 mins -.-

    My normal day, I play the game for about 2-3 hours a day.
    Sometimes alone, sometimes with a team. I'm faster solo, but it gets dull fast. The test above... I spent the entire time grouped with a RA who is skilled, but only three months old. He's not a super toon that makes things ultra fast.
    God, never with randoms. It never ceases to amaze me how awful some people's tactics are and they always seem to do the dumbest things. Throw in a language barrier that exists over 90% of the time and it just makes me want to rage quit. I team up with people in a guild voice chat if I team up with anyone. On some occasions, I'll group with other players that I know and trust, but that is much less common than solo or voice chat teams.

    P.S. The event only came to Agathon 3:45 ago, and I only played for about 2 hours plus a little bit in the testing of the painful map, and here is the progress.
    It can be done. It won't be easy or fast, but it can be done. It is all about killing as many monsters in as short of a time as possible and there is no better map that Q3M1 for that because of the huge mob by the mill.

    three hours of consant farming in stonekeep excruciating and only 169 progess in this event, absolutely pathetic. and now another very lame event on top of it. omg can they get any more desperate for our time and our money? an F minus for this attempt at game design. sorry but that is the truth.

    Can you 100% confirm that at 28th Februar new content with lvl 55 is coming?
    Just want to know if its worth to keep all items for craft or I can burn it without any worries.
  17. It' sure this event won't be easy to do, but don't event try Fatal, you got only 1/2/5 bones loot in every difficulty so keep in mind to farm mode 1 if you don't have much time ...

    For my part I'm doing Q1 circle, around 80-100 progress in an hour.

    @Baragain If you are not farming faster, hope for you that you don't will miss any "3-hours-farm-day" :D

    currently the method i use is : q3, kill the first boss, kill (almost) everything in the top side, reset and repeat. I haven't gotten an accurate number on how much i got / hour because i just started, but its looking good
