    Increased what????
    99.9% of the Kranparus' drop I get is blue item ... and the rest were 2-3 extraordinary items.
    And don't give that "luck" crap ...
    BTW ... that bug at the starting point of the challenge map is intentionally implanted. It was not present on TS.
    And the other thing that players should know is ... the devs didn't fixed that drop bug on purpose. What drop bug? I will tell you ... remember when killing any champion monster in challenge map ... and they drop sugar beets? Well that sugar beet drop actually is supposed to be Phestos' Coins for that big present in Kingshill.

    This is pure retaliation for what happened during the first mini-event, and they think we're foolish enough not to notice, I wish someone of the team had the guts to try to explain this to us, and prove me wrong on my statement about "pure retaliation".

    Thanks, by the way, a lot of us couldn't have figured out the sugar beet part, but it's nice to be aware of how the things are being managed around here.

    Im pretty sure the achievementpart will be fixed! ;) BP-DEVS have done this before, so I guess they are getting the hang of fixing this problem! ;) I must say, I still dont know, why they dont test it beforehand... its allmost like they dont know, they have a testserver... :rolleyes:
    Regarding the missing gem... U should write support!:D

    Well... Ive had some time to think about this... And I must say, that I quite like the fact, that not every one is going to open that present! BP has made a LOT of BAD decisions, Ill give U that... but I dont think, that we all should be able to get excactly the same stuff!
    ...Maybe we should look at this differently...?
    The minievents ARE indeed really hard to finish, and on top of that, when Ur done, U can go on and try and go for an extra reward...
    So far, I have completed about 85 runs on mini-1 and 65 runs on mini-2, and I have gotten 28 unique weapons and 5 unique offhands, but I havent gotten the unique necklace yet (a guildfriend of mine found it in mini-1 though, so its possible to get)... and yeah! -On one hand its annoying as heck, but on the other hand, I dont really need that set, it would only be for show, and if it indeed drops tomorrow or during mini-3, I will be happy!

    So I guess, what Im trying to say is that Winter Solstice as a whole is REALLY easy, (and I still HATE those stoneheads like 99% of the people playing the game!:mad:) I like the fact, that parts of it is REALLY hard, and U have to choose, whether U want to spend the time and effort needed to milk it for every drop possible...:cool:

    LoL... lotsa enchantments on items dont make sense! Its part of DSO!;)

    A guildmate of mine had the same problem! He solved it by reinstalling the game!:p



    NOW Im done! ;)
    As U can see, (if U read danish) its NOT the 3 Jestergems! Only 2! And 1 jokergem!

    I have to agree the mini event is just a complete bummer. To think that they want me to buy the event instead of playing it is frustrating to say the least. I will for sure not waste my time to get the coins for the big box. It's really not worth the effort or time to for a few ander and 1k draken that are esentually worthless.

    The devs should rethink what the majority of players are able to do with the time they have to play.

    Unless they spend thousands of real $ on gems to max out the toons noone can finish this mini event.

    I for sure do not have the time or the desire to do so.

    I just hate the stone heads they shoot out crazy ass missiles the deals too much heavy damage, minus the mobs you encounter halfway through getting to the other side.

    I think you are totally wrong, a lot of players with defensive gear in their bag, can from Kinghill to Kranparius skip everything within 2 minutes if fast enough.
    These people after completing challenges can make 100 coins / hour for the last challenge and they are not so rare.

    I didn't expect challenge 3 map being so big xD

    maby you got a new pc maby you got a fast connection i do not know. all i see is if i try to go past everything i get surrounded and killed. the so called upgrade is a failure as far as my playability is concerned.
    i made it to the end and back 3x times the 1st mini before i figured it was NOT for me. and 2x times for the 2nd.
    apperantly my pc and connection are just to old and slow for this game to be fun for me much longer.
    i play games to have fun not to spend my time dieing most of the time
    or spending a small fortune making an invencible toon.

    my stats are 10k hp 9k block 6k armor 946-1011 dmg with green essence atk speed 2,31 1100 resistance what stats do these players who farm 100 coin / hour got?
    the harder they make things the less players will stay as they cannot get the "good drops" let alone finish something like these events

    Uh, why does Moosov make tiger sounds when mounted/unmounted :confused: ?

    Definitely a bug.

    I managed to complete the ice set, ignoring the stats, the ability itself is quite mediocre. The ice blast is delayed, similar to the mind control blast, and the range is less than ice nova range, it only hits the immediate melee disance. It would not save your character in a dire situation surrounded by mobs.

    Removing the shortcut jump in the event map was an especially nice improvement (just not for non-SMs).
    The changes in lay-out generally bite the green wienie, especially when it means you can't move through apparently clear parts of the map.
    Through carelessness or design, the program is not a challenge and no fun.

    Finally ... finished the last challenge. It took me 3,5 hours of constant running.
    The drops were one big joke ... never got any better item than extraordinary. 0 unique items from Kranparus ... but who cares that set is only good for melting.

    The big present finally opened


    The rewards are OK ... though they could have been better :D

    Does anyone know about some chatter which has been going around the tegan server if it is true... does anyone know if the last day to open the big present in sunday the 27th. If it is the case that is a bit harsh i might just farm in nahuthan atleast i dont die there so much.... i am sure that SW who posted going through hard map and mini event map was quiet OP, with high resisitance and HP and nice travel speed seeing how fast and how much damage he can take....
    But if anyone has any info on the present and if the coins can be used for next year any info would be great

    Speaking off... Just opened mine.
    The hammer was junk, the amulet was junk, but the torso... ah the torso. It was beautiful. Check it out here.
