    With "trustworthy" I mean : those players that use ag or farm for an event that don't give an exact definition of what will you receive back.
    What will bones farming give us ? Surprise

    Who knows ... maybe they are using the same scheme again?
    If so ... I guess it could be similar with this event'Tac_Bound_-_Harbingers_of_Corruption .
    If we don't have info we can only guess :D

    It's easy. If you play 4 hours the first day and get 160 progress, like me, then you do a simple math and see that 16 days are just not enough.
    Moreover, if an event requires you to play 6 hours or more per day, every single day, for 16 days in a row to finish it, you can see right away that the designers want to force you to spend anders on it. If you didin't realize it yet, this is how the company makes money with this game, by giving items to players that pay real money. Of course you can get these items for free, but the effort is huge and the amount of hours of gameplay required is incredibly high. Sad is that the money make the difference in this game an who pays gets to be overpowered in pvp. Even sadder is the fact these players are the ones that call you noob and think this game is a battle of skills.

    I don't know why are you making such a big noise :D
    Take a look how much is this event worth to me


    If I don't like something ... I don't play it ... simple as that.
    Even though I was playing q2 for the other progress bar

    Exactly. :) Most people seem to forget that nothing is obligatory in a game (the Team forgets this fact too unfortunately...). For this reason I decided to take 2 weeks break, my head is already calmer that I stay away from this madness. :D If you like something play and enjoy it. If you don't, there's no need to forcing yourself.

    Likewise. This is a non-event as far as I am concerned. I would be utterly flabbergasted :eek: if there was anything in that chest I could not live without. No other worthy rewards. As far as the Draken goes... it has been so long that there was anything worth spending mine on that I am already close to having enough to replace the draken uniques I use with lvl 55 versions.
    Indeed. I am still playing daily but it is so very nice to have the rest of the month to wander aimlessly in the game :cool:

    Luck be with ye,

    Hello Moderators / Administrators .. In the Storm of Bones Announcement Thread it says that Bone dust XP Buff can be stacked up to 25 times .. But in fact it stack up to 10 times maximum which gives 25% xp bonus.

    So i thought to let u know and fix it ^

    Bone coins are currency used by one trader NPC in Sands of Malice. This Trader NPC sells gear thematically (desert themed) designed gear (weapons, armor, cloaks) which will help less powerful players tackle the first level of the parallel worlds and get them much better equipped for the Sands of Malice content expansion. This gear was created with the more casual player in mind. We wanted to give them a little boost so they would be able to take part in the parallel worlds and have a better time in the new Content.

    The problem with this is:

    1. Most CASUAL players wont even come close to completing this event. (Not without spending anders which is the reason the drops are so low)
    2. The first level of the parallel worlds doesn't really drop anything that will make you better. So many people say the same thing. Make it to the PW's and play through the first 5 or 6 worlds and hear the same thing... Haven't found anything better than what I have. As for crafting ... everyone knows if you want to have good results from crafting, you have to farm Excu. or fatal to get gear with the right kind of stat lines. Unless you have lots of powerful friends, then farming lvl 2 or 3 PW for "The Casual Player" is out of the question.

    The logic of various lvls:

    Lvl 1 drops gear that allows you to farm lvl 2
    Lvl 2 drops gear that allows you to farm lvl 3
    Lvl 3 drops gear that is much better than lvl 2 gear allowing you to farm more efficiently and play the retardedly difficult upper tier lvls of events

    But this doesnt seem to be BP/Youzu's "logic"

    Of course this is just my own humble opinion after 4+ years of being a casual player.

    thanks, Doc.

    Also, at the start it says 02.17.2017 as in month 2, day 17, year 2017
    but the end date is 06.03.2017, that means month 6, day 3, year 2017
    I though i should point that out ;)

    Still nothing on the contents of the box. Will we be informed?

    That is not what the text is says "less powerful" not "casual" :p
    As for the Bone dust ... for them it drops in LorTac maps much more than in hard PW maps. Take a look at this screenshot I made it just for this purpose
    ... you can note the buff is at max stack.
    That doesn't mean I am playing the event ... I am still at 400/4200 :D

    Bone coins:
    You can buy gear with them. Like I said:
    same pattern as before. I knew this before I even tested the new content ... that is why I am not playing the event. :)

    Yeah even if the drop there is decent, i can't farm there more than 1hour, it's so boring and with no objective. At least at parallel worlds you get some points and better drop.

    Well, just fyi.... I spent some time in Stillwater and Frog River, cleared both maps for a total of 3 progress. So I tried Cradle of Frost and Cradle of Death with not much better luck. Seems your experience there fared far better than mine.

    And IMHO Less powerful = Casual ... Neither has the time to play 10 hours a day to earn enough glyphs to have all their gear maxed at 55. Nor do they spend enough money to buy their way there ... thus we are talking about less powerful, casual players.

    Thanks, Doc.

    Extremely poor drop of Bone Dust, and have automatic collection as it is with the Materi Fragment. Because the drop is already little and can still happen the accident loses them during the journey.

    Then farm on PW and make some char progress, ignore the "event". Simple, isn't it?
    But if you want farm PW AND completing the event, then bear with it as it is or buy some buffs to make it slightly faster. Simple, right?
    Like the other says, no one forcing you to do this particular event. :)
    I myself don't know if I want to finish this event or not, just farming PW 2-3 hours per day as usual. Now my event progress at 2.2k and still have more than ten days remaining. If I can finish it, great. If not, well, I'd rather enjoy the game than complaining just to get nothing. Because this is just a game, for fun. Besides, I have plenty other problem IRL to worry about and it's not worth it to add some virtual/make-believe problems. Idk about you though :D
