    Event thoughts and feelings

    Nothing personal from myself, just some collective thoughts and feelings re event:

    Observations

    Mob count seems low, wasnít terrible on launch due to lunar cycle though
    Gem chip drops, seems harsh itís only smallest size
    Pet food in top cave goes up to 180 making it useless
    Top solo cave only obtainable through gg

    Suggestions

    Increase mob spawns by 15-25% in main maps
    Make the chip drop one size up
    Take petfood out of drops of top end
    Let 3 L shards be merged to gain entry to top solo cave (lbh its really not that great anyways so no real reason to restrict access)

    Re: Event thoughts and feelings

    I've been camping the top gg cave to try and catch up on XP so not been in the main map much but event is same as last year, good to see more cave levels introduced which helps. Boss in GG brain cave really doesnt drop much at all (Lost count how many times Ive killed now).

    Was there another map last year near where you change the pumpkins and letters into rewards? Went in there to grab Terrifying candle and didnt seem to be anywhere to tele back out or further into a cave?

    If hunting purely in the Large GG brain cave does anyone know if the new spells are in the drop files?

    ?

    I only popped on for a couple of hours but I was disappointed this map was removed. I'm sure last year it was 3 or 4 floors with the most amount of mobs and a couple bosses.

    Maybe it's just been relocated though? Would be a shame to remove it fully

    Would be nice if there was a teleport out if the shadow swamp back to the barrens rather than having to start over again. Swamp is bare without the teleport in the middle of it to the temple.

    All the new spells drop in top gg cave

    This year feels like we missing the cave from swamp, the “extra” spawns to make up for it are inadequate tbh

    Re: Event thoughts and feelings

    I thought spawns were too low during lunar cycle, from cycle finished iv never got kill meter to more than 70% not enough mobs and too many competing for them

    The highest level cave I understand one high level player requested this be restricted to just the highest levels, but talking ingame many of us miss being able to take along our noobs and run guild hunts during events. Perhaps for the xmas event you could create 2 legendary instances one for the high lvls that wanna be alone and one for the rest of us that want to hunt together?

    That said I am enjoying it so far

    I have to disagree, for ages we have seen people taking for guilds in top caves, the restrictions for me is a more relaxing place to hunt without 3/4 wars 20 levels below trying to pk

    Don't understand why pumpkin torches expire when you haven't equipped it. Spent time making one just for it to disappear sooner than my current torch.

    Yeah pumpkin torches should have 24hr to use at least. Seen a few people now saying they made one and had no way to use it because they had a torch on already and ended up losing it

    Re: Event thoughts and feelings

    I do want to thank gm for event though, it’s been enjoyable and frustrating in equal measures!!

    Re: Event thoughts and feelings

    I quite enjoy event. Unfortunately I hit 161 on both of my characters and going to high brain gg cave is a challenging... Doable but just .... Went there with my wizz and died in 2 min... Deffo need a clear ring ��

    Re: Event thoughts and feelings

    Although I have yet to use up quite a few shards I have collected I have enjoyed the event.

    Exp has been good, shard availability good and drops good. Rune drops less good (but you cant have everything).

    Scorp, you seem to have hit the 'sweet spot' for shard drops in both this event and the previous spiders event.

    In a few previous events I have felt nothing but frustration looking for presents etc. to give access to the caves. I have had absolutely no such frustrations with this event, so job well done.

    I have used gg for the 'premium cave'. Quite enjoyed it. Personally, I don't mind that the only way into this cave is via gg, I appreciate you have a living to earn.

    Please consider this level of shard / present drops for Christmas event, I think it works and is nicely balanced, not sure what others think.

    Again, have thoroughly enjoyed this event so thank you!

    GG is not the only way to go in to the gg cave, spectres can drop the spectralamulet, i have found 3 of them so far.

    I agree the shard drop is nice now, i no longer feel frustrated like i felt back then, when i killed a spidersilk just to find out it didn't drop any silk, now at least when i find a spectre i know a "S" is at least for sure to drop.

    Scorpion, one thing is for sure, i love the method of hunting for something that allows you access to a room which gives you rewards for the time spent gathering it. it would be lovely to implement that in the game in a cave that runs this, but in this case, shards or silk, whatever u wanna put in there, would be rare to drop, but when it did drop, it would give a bit better rewards of xp/loot than what it is right now to compensate for rarity. It would be another method in playing the game. I enjoy alot, the feel in hunting for items that allows me entrance to different rooms according to the type of item i caught, where i can possibly be nicely rewarded for the time spent looking for. Everytime a event has this kind of mechanic, i see myself logging way more in to the server to play with these mechanics while the other events which was just mindless killing mobs, i didnt spend much of my time logging in to do it, i just didn't feel any fun in doing so, it was boring.

    Didn't know that spectres can drop the amulet! I have hunted mostly on a nearish full meter with a 20gg drop pot on, killing enough spectres to generate 50+ L shards, no ammy for me. Scorp, maybe up the drop rate of amulets next time ;)

    That concept is already sort-of in place, but instead of using items that take up storage space, it's implemented with demon souls. You spend your time "collecting" them by killing supers, champions, and bosses, then spend them in "special" caves.

    There are various types of caves, the "normal" ones are typically much better for exp and making gold than free caves, and there are two special ones RDD and BDP which have unique challenges inside them and exciting drop files, but beware, these places need a good group if you want to get far or even complete them.

    The problem that's faced is people treat these premium caves as normal levelling areas and think it's their right to only hunt there and nowhere else, then moan that demon souls are too hard to get, when actually they are very easy to get if you mix up your hunting places instead of just trying to power to the end.

    Kick your feet up, relax a bit, and enjoy the various caves the game has to offer, there's a lot out there to enjoy if you aren't in a hurry!

    Pumpkin torches need adjusting
    Gg cave is cool
    Spectres pretty cool but missing runes.
    I love the events but I like to look at things from every angle and I’d say there’s not enough for new/casual/non donating players.

    Awesome for us tho. I noticed first 2 days was awesome magic find but since then felt nerfed.

    Thanks again tho enjoying it so far

    - - - Updated - - -

    Everyone loves a free hunt in the forest looking for trees or pumpkin men. Few runes buff pots gold etc. It was that kind of event that got me hooked after casually playing it. Need some free stuff to do when the gg runs out. I find myself logging off when the gg runs out. The big room and maze is ok.
    Anyway somthing is better than nothing. Thanks again for keeping our beloved game going. :)

    Your view count for sod all. Scorp has earned his ££ from te event so he'll carry on doing the same next year as it's worked year on year. Thank you for your custom, please spend more during xmas event lol..
    I don't care how hard you think you are. You are just pixels, nothing more.

    Re: Event thoughts and feelings

    I enjoyed the higher exp monsters in the event caves, but oh my god did I hate the maps!! If i died there was no hope of ever making my way back to my drops because there was a blockage every which way.

    Pleased this ancient game is still going, and being developed and maintained!

    Re: Event thoughts and feelings

    Hi didnt manage to play the 1st few days , then very random during the week , One thing is for sure there was a great nerf to drops after the 1st few days , just seeing comments on our guilds wapp and talking to various players from the whole server , this reminds me of most of the events.....
    Day 1 -2 great drops people shouting in guild and in town wow got this from GG cave , so people think ohhh must buy GG and get in there or i miss out ............... Suckers there always a reboot 2nd 3rd day ish into event and bingo no more great or sort after items drop , no skill books ----------------- people have lashed out cash in the hope of getting something but then theres a drop nerf .............. of course this will be denied as it always been but fact is how can skill books drop 1st 2 days then none after.....
    just based on friends alone the dropped like 1500 to 2500 gg each so thats like 100 to 150 pounds in the last week times that by like the 10 people that i know that have done it ----
