    How is it that the Festival starts on the 2nd of December and when I go into the Cave and kill the beast 3 hours after it event starts, the 2nd present opens and shows that I missed the first present (when there was no door yesterday cause the event hadn't started)????

    Ok so feedback:
    (Im not gunna make this long, cuz U devs never reads it anyway, but here goes...)

    Bear is harder this Yr than ever B4 and droprates on everything inside then event is lower than ever!
    -I mean... I REALLY thought U guys hit a new low last year with the droprates of presents at that point being at an all time low, but droprates this year??? Its just RIDICOULOUS!!!
    -Presentdrops this Yr is at an all time low!!!
    -Bear doesnt even drop coins at all this Yr!!
    -Cubedrops from event is even worse inside event!!!??? (especially since Im deluxe)
    -Havent even seen the new cursed amphora that is supposed 2 be added this yr!
    -getting snowess is just RIDICOULOUS!!! (snowmen still have the same INSANELY LOW drops as previous Yrs, but now bear takes so long [read: requires so much snow ess] to kill that it is insane!!!
    Why didnt U adjust for this? -I know why! Cuz its not enough that we buy deluxe 2 support U guys! -Now U want us 2 buy attires!!! (at 50 euros??? Are U kidding me???)

    -so the only way 2 get those phestos coins is to do the mini now!!! Which we all know is gunna be superhard, since U also cut the droprates of those coins in the minis even more than U did last Yr!!

    And this is what christmas is for U devs??? -a way 2 annoy and frustrate Ur playerbase into leaving this game?? SHAME ON U DEVS!!!

    Merry Xmas 2 all people in the entire world! (except for a handfull of people in a building in Berlin!)

    It's just for the bear... but Kranparus has other problems.

    Another day, another terrible trashfire of an event offered by BP

    Good EDIT job, you ruined the winter solstice festival event too
    And now we have to see what kind of a joke will the dragan event become

    Well, the event with 1 to 2 hours per day is enough to finish in 1 month the normal and infernal bars 1, the infernal bar 4 is already another challenge only for strong players.
    In the first days, you collect many beets and snow essences (optional), then the rest of the days it is only to enter the map and collect the pigs and gifts, kill miniboss (optional kill bear) and finally in the last days of the event exchanges gifts for
    20 phestos coins and continue to enter the map collecting pigs and gifts, killing miniboss and opening at the end of the event the map of prizes of 60 and 5 phestos coins.
    In short, it is another event of patience, the event is normal and can be played, in 1 to 2 hours per day it is difficult to get bored.
    The bad thing that I see in this event is the fall of the bear's mantle, in my case dedusco that is 0%.

    And how they ruined it ?!?!? by giving us 3 lesser concentrated slostice runes in the main bar ? Probably you will say ''But you need to grind'' Well no one is foring you, you can simply play to the first rune still it will be more worth then the last year main event progress.
    Probably you will say ''Kramparus gives less coins and it's harder because of the boss changes, plus you need to grind on minis''. And again nobody is forcing you to grind plus the big pressents gives so good rewards it's kinda even-handed
    When we will recieve it after the event or the last day of the event ?

    On Dec 2nd, I went into the Solstice Cave and defeated the monster. Opened the 2nd present.
    On Dec 3rd, I went into the Solstice Cave several times and defeated the monster each time. No present was available for opening.
    On Dec 4th, I went into the Solstice Cave and defeated the monster. Opened the 4th Present.

    That's two presents shown as opened that I didn't get to open. :( :mad: What the $@##? :mad:
    There was not a Solstice Cave on Dec 1st on my map. :( Are we only supposed to be able to get the present every other day??? :(

    Mod's, could you please list on the Advent Calendar page for each day what the cave presents give? I have no idea what I got from Dec 4th as I didn't get to read it before it vanished. I with that texts like that would show up in the chat bar as a "System:..." message.

    (tried to get picture for here, but won't upload for some reason...)

    it's ruined simply because, having to be played mostly in infernal 4, it is out of reach for many (most) players. If you commit yourself a little you will see that it is not difficult to understand it.

    The cave resets at 00:00 CET (UTC +1).
    I am putting all rewards , daily , in the Wiki guide as soon as possible https://drakensangonline.fandom.com/wiki/Winter_Solstice_Festival_2019#Solstice_Cave_Daily_Rewards
    As I recall you are playing on Agathon ... so you would always know what is the next reward since Agathon is 6 hours behind EU servers.

    Not just that ... but weak players are getting nerfed drops as well.
    In example Phestos' Coins have 80% drop chance on Normal and 90% on Painful.

    Oh, I was not aware of this (my interest is at an all-time low) but it seems right to me: to discourage newcomers and make them change game before they lose too much time on this for nothing. Or what other subtle and diabolical strategy would productors be pursuing?

    If you bothered to use your head you would have understood that: the coin drop was lowered for no reason at all, the event requires much more progress while progress drop is like the past events and not only that, the turrets can't be countered in any way and you are forced to do the event in inf 4

    And let's not talk about how much progress you need for the minievents
    Have you read Trakilaki's posts?
    Guess what, the event is bad and you can only defend this mess by ignoring the evidence right before your eyes

    This is a skill that BP shills all lack

    I am afraid there won't be a guide provided for this event's edition. As CM Jesse explained when this was brought up on Discord: "there are some older guides for the past winter solstice events in the forums + the info from 225 about new things". As all the new changes were posted in the R225 patchnotes, an additional guide won't be provided, I'm sorry :( . The following info regarding the event challenges progress has been posted here the other day.

    Best regards,

    I know it's just a little bonus thing, but this morning I couldn't even be bothered to update our guild message with today's bonus code :D What a troll...
    I think the guy who comes up with these has to be the same guy who assists Jesse in his streams. He never knows what items are called, and he probably has no clue what items are worth :>

    About the event progress bars, well, I assume soon the strongest of us will be pushing their royal gems up their bum.
    But at least we can get the lesser rune triad from the 4 progress bars below infernal.
    The rewards achievable by weaker players seem to be better than last year.

    The challenges... It seems like 99% of players get all the garbage rewards in 2 runs and then are stuck farming coins with no more rewards coming.

    I don't remember from last year, but using the solstice log, does it turn the turrets off too?

    Nope. It only activates an extra spot to save you from the cold.

    Ahh amazing... ;D


    Btw. I have a little quality of life improvement suggestion. A tiny one:
    Whenever I open the Event window (E) and select the event I want to look at, I'd like the game to show me my current progress bar I'm filling right away. At the moment I always have to click through different progress bars to find my current one. Just a little thing.

    how is it fair that dwarfs need 100-150 essence per boss run in inf3-4(assuming they are some what decent) while rangers and mages need 400+ and wars need 600+?

    Have you just discovered the power of dwarf ?
    While some buy capes 50$, they can do the events solo and not spending anything. Several years that the problem exists on the imbalance of this class, and nothing changes.
    Maybe with the new cloack system, more players will find it unfair. :D
