    Agree,,, they are doing a fix that should be done. But it should also never have happened. The event never should have been designed to exclude 90% of the players. When this event first started Tegan was packed. I have not seen so many groups since the old level 40 days for Sargon events. Then when the mini came out players were defeated before they even tried. I can not ever remember talking to so many discouraged players. It is to little to late players have moved on.

    As I write this there is only dozen groups now plus I guess the ones hide their group. When this started there was more then two pages of groups plus the hidden groups. Make no mistake two pages of groups on Tegan is huge. I imagine some players will come back if they read forum. But it is to little to late.

    The mini event boss is only dropping 1 coin on every lvl what happened to the 3 coins?
    Will the other mini's only drop the same 1 coin?

    As we all expected to see the 3,7 and 10 coins dropping, it seems some compensation would be headed our way especially if the drop rate is not repaired.

    As stated earlier in this and other threads... The coin drop was changed from 3/7/10 to 1/2/3. You'll have to farm 3x as much to get similar amounts of coins.

    The runes that are quite important to low level players and which won't make a big difference for top players are at the end of infernal 4 progress bar, out of reach for low level players. The runes and items that help growing our characters should be on progress bars that an average character can do. On top of the infernal progress bars should be aesthetic things, mounts and costumes, etc. A top player is more interested in a unique mount that not everyone has, than some 3% crit rune, while a low level character is more interested in the rune.

    You took this right out of my mouth.
    Yet, I think you too are aware that this might be problematic. I'm not sure if players, even if they were super op, would be willing to spend their inf. fragments and so much time to get just practically useless items like mounts or costumes. We've again hit the fundamental issue of this game, which is the basic gameplay loop especially in events, that is repetitive and boring af. For that reason, the only thing that keeps players playing are the rewards. And if the rewards are not worth the effort, players won't grind for them :/

    I certainly don't. But I know people who, despite not having any need for it, play any stuff as long as it's called event. Needless to say, many of these have almost exhausted their resources: that is exactly what BP wanted to achieve.

    This is exactly what OP players want. I did the inf4 bar just because, for the challenge. I didn't need anything on it. I will do any infernal bar and spend all resources I have if at the end would be the mortis dragon mount.
    The good players want to show off in the city, to show they are OP, to have mounts and costumes only the best players have.

    I agree with you guys. I also think that if you play an online game, you want to show off and enjoy the feeling others can see all the things you have achieved. It begins with titles and ends with epic mounts, costumes, auras, etc.
    And if this really applies to DSO players as well, that's great. Because in that case, not only event rewards, but also the whole monetization philosophy can follow this trend, just like it does in some other free online games :]

    There just need to be a bunch of brand new, super sexy items added as new rewards for the strong players who can actually do hardest modes.

    I would have a lot if not everything to disagree but, as Clint Eastwood said, opinions are beautiful precisely because everyone has their own. Needless to add to what he compared them.

    Those runes and special gems on the infernal progress bars means a lot for a beginner, but means nothing or almost nothing for a top player. I have quite a bunch of different type of runes sitting in my inventory as there is no more room to put them on my character. The runes should be on the low level progress bars.

    What do you mean they mean nothing to top players? Those runes are now upgradable and no one has a Supreme rune.
    Those are not for twinks and new players.
    The good thing about the Infernal Progress bars is that they are restricting players by level (only level 55 can play Infernal) ... the downside was ... not all level 55 players are strong and not all of them have that kind of resources.
    The devs are like promoting group play ... but there is no group play when someone finishes the progress and refuse to help further because they already lost so much resources. No one is stupid to waste resources to help others ... especially if they can't help even themselves.
    But in future progress bars should be having a level restriction. I see twinks playing the event and they still not leveling up. That is interesting because that should not happen with the latest mechanics and I am observing those twinks for a longer time ... they haven't leveled even one level up. So there must be an exploit.
    He compared them with anus. He was not so polite in choosing words though :D

    ok... so many kills and only 3 [EDIT] cloaks?? Well .. we can't buy items anymore, but do we need to die, while we are farming some item???? I used almost 4k keys of prowess until I got Herold's cloak and it was so bad, that I was really mad and melted it...
    What are you trying to do??? To make us quit of this game????
    Keep going, you are near the target...

    You already got 3 cloaks??? Wow. I've gotten none. And I'm not the only one in that cloakless boat.

    sad... so sad.. There is no fun in this game anymore...
    Bad drop, too strong bosses, we need so much efforts and resources to play every event, an endless repeating again and again and again until we get bored at all, PvP is full of cheeters and bugs, and disbalance … have no words anymore...

    Oh, I forgot … crafting is more than wasting time... I don't craft anymore!!!

    Aaah, the culture of the great classics who made history: Goethe, Gandhi, Kipling, Eastwood .... oops :D

    Double like just for it :)

    I don't know anyone who has ever played this game "for fun" :confused:

    R.I.P.?

    I agree, it is one of the worst things at the moment (and there are many): it is an obsolete and now aberrant system for new players.

    the bosses aren't strong, they are simply boring and timeconsuming to kill, which is a big difference

    So, like most drops, the RNG is fickle and gives the real big screw to most players. That said (and it could be that I have just gotten "lucky" this time) I have dropped 7 cloaks and 4 or 5 of the mace. Also got 3 Krapus amulets so far. Almost all of that was solo. And I have historically experienced better drops while grouped instead of solo but the benevolent dictators may have changed something in the matrix. Nevertheless, it doesn't matter. My first drop was a T6 mace with gold damage that was trash. It is all trash. Gold base lines or not, high enchantments or not, all of it is trash. Garbage that you almost feel ashamed to sell because it is more scummy trash from scummy BP.

    My opinion, and thats all that it is, is that BP tricks and confuses the players, as is their scummy way, into thinking the drops are worth your time. They are not; into thinking completing the Inf 4 progress bar is worth your time and resources (money?) but they are not.

    My suggestion is to focus on what has value; Getting the biggest present, which isn't difficult if you know how. It should be rather normal for all players to attain the violet presents that then need. No need for getting blue presents to be so painful either. Spending time in Inf 4 looking for violets is an Infernal waste of time.

    Then get what drakens and runes you can and don't stress about it. Yes its true, that BP designed a scummy and deceitful system to force players into thinking they have to waste resources but if you keep your goals in mind, along with your expected play time, you should do ok.
