    The official walkthrough is referring to the Solstice Gave. I remember there was 1 last year but this year it's been hidden well, i can't find it :eek:! Is this a mistake or am i looking in the wrong places?

    Just a fast first thing I noticed: you could make the Sugar Beets auto-loot but not the progress...
    Is it really that hard to implement the auto-loot to all events and their resources/progress?

    "The event is playable from character level 10 and onwards."
    Wrong, it's 15. Isn't it?

    Event map mini-bosses don't count towards dailies.
    But then how do you open 29 presents in 26 days?

    Easy, you open 26 this year and give the other 3 to bp as a nice christmas present.

    Some more: Drake's quests have absolutely no reward, so beyond useless for those who did the achievements once already.

    Another freakin' KH-only entrance... screw the Fairground and all that, the clutter on one single map makes all its instances laggy...
    I thought this event used to have a door in every town, like DDH, didn't it?

    Great start... oh, well... Happy Holidays, all (except you, lousy BP people) !

    Totems that shot on the walk path have to much damage, sure DK can cross it easy, but SW, SM on the otherhand can't, it's a nighmare for SW and SM. Maybe reduce the damage a bit, huh? :rolleyes:
    Give us a brake for God sake.

    If its the same as last year, this isn't an issue. SM using either dragan blocking pauldrons + tier I or higher wolf slayer shield can cross easily, as can SWs or Rangers with a decent tier I or II heredur shield. And anybody can do it with timing. Also, SM might be able to bypass with the long jump talent.

    1) I second adding autoloot to the event. Too much clicking going on.

    2) I'm also not a fan of the missing base stat on the kranparus offhands. It makes the event set really less useful.

    3) Also, not a fan of the fact that we can't just exit the kranparus map right back on to the winter solstice map so that we can enter in again.

    4) It would also be nice if the stack sizes for the presents were larger.

    And thank goodness for those wolf minis that don't drop anything much than coins. The Dragan knights taught you nothing still?
    Well, dwarves can skip the first row of those blasted things, but other than that, yes, one of the most annoying things there are. Can be bypassed with good enough timing and some defense, but that doesn't make them any less irritating (one wrong step, or collision with something or another player and you're done for xD). So, of course, they had to add them into the PWs too, but that's a different business.

    About base stats... well, they still have to re-fix their last change on offensive offhands (and the collateral damage on other items + slots).

    You have been playing so long you forget not all of the players have huge HP gems, best gear, some of us are playing new chars.. besides I already tryed with block, 7.1k life and 2100 res but totem killed me with one shot on Painful dificulty. For me personaly this is a nighmare event, I hate it couse of the totems sooo much.

    Damage coused by totems on the walk path is to high, it should be reduced by 50%, since nor block or res is helping to reduce the damage coused by hit, this as is it's rediculous.

    Same answer as above ^.

    i will not be playing this event anymore, totems are just rediclious. I tried atleast 15 times to cross
    with nothing great equipmnt wise. It just takes all the fun out.

    "If while Challenge 3 is active, you enter the Winter Summit in Normal difficulty, then enter the Challenge map, the difficulty will be set to Fatal"
    This quote can be found here in the Event Walktrough update 2016 !
    This confuse me!
    The difference in layout between the Normal difficulty map (mod1) and the others (mod 2 - 3 - 4) is the absence in the upper right corner of the map, of the pathway that leads to the challenge portals! How is it then possible to use mod1 when the challenges are active ?
    At present we must use at least mod2 to reach the challenge maps .....

    That means:
    1. You can enter from all maps except Normal
    2. There is no difficulty selection for challenges ... everyone will play #1 in painful ... #2 in excruciating and #3 in fatal mode
    3. That means Walk In The Park for filthy twinks while real hell for level 50 players. BP decides to let twinks play in fatal.
    I have tested this at TS ... I could enter fatal with my level 16 char ... I made objection to BP staff ... and apparently it was overruled because they didn't change anything.

    reread good the orange line i wrote "....enter main map in normal mode ... then enter challenge map ...." ????? If thats correct then your nr1 line is incorrect ????

    Even with 5.5k life 64% armor , 45 % resistance and 2.2 k dmg ( lev 40 )
    without any buff essence...... and can't survive in painfull map , and with 9.5k life and 4 k dmg with pink essence and without buffs and i still struggle to finish the map and to kill the bear i have to pass through the hell and by that i mean those cannons. And if this is like that what will be in the last mode 4 ? 1 mob will have 8 k dmg and 1 million life ? or much more. And right now i will think twice before i will buy premium in this game if this is the gap between me and the old/twinks than i will let them to play. Good luck for those who made their characters in the last 2-3 months we don't have any chance in the challenges :) . This is the hell of the drakensang christmas where heavy payers receive the gift and free and new players just watch and dream.

    Your armor and resist are low imho for 2H at level 40. players like you should be focused on leveling up anyway.

    This event is getting me angry by the minute! Let's see does BP even care about our feedback and will it do anything at all for us or let us get even more angry and frustrated from it. Reduce totem damage, it to high! *** really

    Let's see.

    Completed painful difficulty map in 30 minutes with 77 honey cookies.
    Completed normal difficulty map in 7 minutes with 110 honey cookies.

    Hmm. What am I missing here?
    So the painful is more difficult but lesser rewards?

    I experienced the very same thing as did several others in our guild. To further rub salt in to the wound I was fighting Big Paws in painful when I was dc'd and sent back to KingsHill.
    P.S: Not one gold present has dropped yet either...

    Here I was hoping that they would not touch which was such a nice event...wrong!
