    So what are that chests lvl 51-55 already for?
    If you cant confirm, maybe can you deny? So ppl will be sure that lvl 55 is not coming yet.

    I do not think there is a best drop. And not even one least worst. I had decent drop for a short time, I was getting about 30 frags per run in Q3. But then they turned off Heredur server due "a short maintenance", during which they nerfed the drop. After of that, a full run in fatal mode gave me only 10-11 dust in Q1 and 14-15 in Q3. Last full run in Q1 normal mode gave me 4 dust.

    4200 dust at the average of 13 every run means a total of 320 runs in fatal mode in 16 days. That is about 21 runs per day. Ok it is doable, if you do not have a life. Otherwise... much better enjoy it, and play tetris in the spare time. Also, knowing how many fakes they make happens in this game, that reward cheast will probably contain 1k copper and 250 green essence.

    If you are not climbing the leader board,NEVER farm any map beside q1 or q3m1,'cause the other pws are useless in every way.This event is very boring but most certainly doable if we quit farming some stupid pws (like q24568)

    I said something at some point about pay to play part and the official reply was quite harsh and straight, that the game is free to play, for everyone. This is so relative and can be debated for hours. The game is completely free to play, but to get certain content in the game, you'll have to pay for it. The only way the game is completely free is to have a very old char, with thousands hours of gameplay, which is full royal and with crafted items. That one would be able to get almost anything in the game for free. Else you either pay or just forget about all the shiny new things in the game. The game is completely free if you have a tone of patience and a couple of years to build a very strong char.
    186 progress / 2 hours - this is not an one year old char with less or no $$ invested in. This is a very old and strong char. In 3 years from now, if we play every day, we will be as chilled and relaxed as he is about any new event or content, no matter how hard.

    This is ALL about money for Bigpoint, nothing else. I played for about 3-4 hours today and in this time frame I finished the event in grotto and on 2354 out of 4200 for the other one. Why? Because I wouldn't have the patience for stupid grind and bought the 2499 anders buffs.
    This is exactly what they are really pushing players to do...... their greed is insatiable..

    I am in love with the game, but I hate the guts of this company

    So damn right, only a DSO employee with no other job would finish this crappy event without complaining. We don't have the time to be on our PC all freakin day dear DSO team. Make events that let us enjoy our life!

    Why is everyone so up in arms? The rewards are crap (until the contents of those mystery chests are known), so just ignore the event ... these two events are incidental to everyday game-play, might give you a few extra draken & materi while you go about your daily business, but don't otherwise provide material rewards, so shouldn't be approached like a true event. You don't have to complete every challenge unless you're obsessed.

    This is an event for the under 50 people. The increase in exp buff is very nice.
    I'm not advocating "doing" the event, just that those of us still gaining experience are benefiting greatly from the Bone Dust. And the drop rate is such that it generally keeps one between +12 to +25% (max) Exp gain rate.

    For those maxed in Exp, sorry there's not really much here for you. Normally, the events are the other way around. They are mostly for those way beyond 50.

    And, by the way, the Dwarf Heist "buffed" me up enough with Gems and Glyphs that I'm now surviving just fine in Nahuatlan. (Same Level - more Armor/Resistance/Health.) So, to me, even though I didn't finish either mini or the main, I am now deeming that it was a success.

    I've felt this way for a year now ... even with my (4th month at) Lvl 50 toon ... there's a huge gap between "us" and "them," those true end-gamers :)

    I would to thank you. I didn't think that the buff would be so powerful. I've read about it only on this forum - because the TL of the italian board (the one in my language) even don't mention it! - but I didn't understand the meaning of its description. Now your words clarified everything and I think I will buy it within the next days.

    I am a free player but, frankly speaking, I always appreciate the efforts of the developers
    when I see that developers make efforts so, if I have to pay something, I do not see anything against to the ethic: at the opposite, it is the normal mechanism that makes things to function and progress, especially when the prize is tiny and you could always farm the andermants if you really do not want make a deal using real money.

    When they introduced lev 50 I even bought several months of the standard premium
    exactly in order to support their work, that I judged fine and enjoyable in that moment. So, now, even in case we are slow to farm andermants and have to pay a couple of dollars to achieve the cheast (in the hope that it won't be totally useless), I wouldn't see anything immoral on it: our opinion should be kept positive and forwarded to support their work on this new expansion.

    If they want us to PAY money at least the could provide us with INFO about the Chests. That is without a doubt an attempt to make us lose our money/time for something that will not worth it. The contents of the chest should be mentioned, their thinking is IMMORAL (not saying about the contents).

    And that's all from the impossible event. Not a single euro spend on it. To be honest, I did not even thought on doing it, cuz I dont like the rewards, but everyone in the guild told that its imposiblle to compeat it, so i gave it a shot. Whithout any buffs it is annoying as hell, so i decided to try whith some scarab. I had 13k ander and I spend it all for 5. In the 5 hours farm on q3 fatal I completed the event and got back 6k ander + 1k from a cube, so it cost me less then 6k ander. Since i did it solo, it was not even the optimal farm, so in a good group it may take even less than 5 scarabs.

    cubes, ander, ander from cubes.. lol. Me too, I only spend euros on premium and ander. I never paid one euro for playing the game or for doing impossible event. Only ander. I don't understand the players always complaining the events are hard, I did the last minievents without even leaving the city, I bought the progress with ander. I didn't spend one euro!

    Yeah with gems like this in my items it would be wise to pay for something that is not worthy... You know there are players like me that play a year or less.. Do you think all the players have the luxury to waste anders?

    I don't know why you quoted me and it appeared as @wangwang 's quote..... never mind...

    What I wanted to say in response was, of course, in order to support a good project people have to be mindful that nothing comes for free and developers efforts have to be appreciated and rewarded. In order to keep the project going, developers require resources, without resources we wouldn't have a good game. I myself have been supporting this project for almost 5 years and I am not going to mention the amount of cash spent here because you would have a heart attack (yes, it's that crazy).

    Unfortunately, it was way too late that I realized that this company did not deserve my support. This feeling of absolute waste and no appreciation in return is a nasty feeling.

    Their right hand doesn't know what their left hand is doing, their inconsistency is hideous, their disrespect for their loyal clients is disgusting. These guys are all over the place......

    Every time someone in their office farts a seemingly good idea, they get onto it, not long after they jump onto something else, as a result
    we have multiple currencies that lost their value
    we are stuck with pieces of useless unique sets
    we have items from inconsistent events clogging our inventory

    This is because they don't have a long term thought through plan how to develop this game, they jump from one thing onto another. These erratic leaps create a lot of frustration for their players.

    Well, I spended 5 hours for this minievent in order to complete it, whithout spending ander on it, so i gues I am the screwed one. I gues I saved the ander for this event so not that much, but any way. This event is 16 days, so I don't know why is everyone suposed to complete it in the first day. In addition it dosn't require enything else but to farm in the place you are farming normally. If you can't do it in 15 days and you want the rewords, you can do what I did. Let's say you dont have prem and you don't get the 1k from the cude. This make the price for scarab 10k, since I hope you can get enoght bones in 15 days to save one of the 5. So you have 15 days to farm 10k (I gues is posable for 15 days whithout becoming a zombie, but I can't know, since I farm over 10k per day bieng one).Now let's say you are not 5 yers old char like me, whitch is completely normal. The drops are 1,2 and 5 for every difficulty, so you can farm 15 days in every one and have one day complete the event on easy. Now 10k ander is almost a radiant ruby, which is not nice to waste, but is not thath crucial either.

    I am at that half between a loving trustworthy one and the one that trust them anymore.

    Mainly, I think that those kind of events are created expecially for those trustworthy players that are able to waste k of ag to finish an event and reaching a goal, even knowing nothing about it.
    That kind of extreme grinding event are shared between those ag collectors ( buyers ) and evergreen bot users.

    I have to disagree with you here. 10000 andermant to get the buffs you need to finish fast was no big deal for me. I got half of it from the farm itself for the bone coins in q3 m1 (mill-only), mode 1 and doing the other PW event on mode 2. And that's because I don't have the time or patience for the event.
    But I am not sure what you mean by trustworthy, no buying was necessary for this amount (it's simple PW farm to get this much andermant). Simpler for some players than for others, I agree, but if you want it the hard way, you're going to farm the hard way.
    Is it brainless? Kind of... But you don't need a special map to do it. :)
