Feoh 103 (+20bl apo, +10 bl. R99 set, WB jewell - b.valakas,s.baium .... cloak, longing, abudence 1 ....)

Wednesday: 1-10 round NP... next time: sonata off = death - new enter with npc buf on 1hrs .... first boss ok. 10-17 round carefully but np.

second boss is red - damage from him 3k, i do him 600 - 6572 = fail.

Thursday : i make lvl 104  - 1 - 18 round NP - second boss is yellow - damage from him 2,5k, i do him 800 - 21500 = run on next 40 min and 3 death, last me death he had RAGE (how boss in kartia), i enter back to instance and boss have back 50% hp ... I better unlog and off this game.

Maybe on lvl 105 is chance.

And y Tyrr Grand Khavatari 105 have super single damage, can not be compared with feoh.

 Why you wrote this ROFL?

Most of characters no need 6 slot bracelet. But all of them need +5% pdef/mdef. Your advice looks like "if you want some gear, go fk yourself".

Do you understand these bracelets will rise imbalance? And you can get them only at the event time.

No, this item will not rise any significant imbalance lolz.

Get your Dimensional +5 CON or +5 CHA bracelet and there won't be much difference compared to this new item.

What rises imbalance are items like +15 or +18 cloaks, +5 radiant circlets and lv6 Brooch Jewels. These items are way to OP and way to expensive to get for the average player.

A mere 5% Pdef/Mdef while sacrificing +5 CON/CHA changes nothing/zero/nada/niente/nix. Same for the Patk (instead STR/DEX) or Matk (instead INT).

I do agree that the event could have been more fair for all classes, but it really isn't a big problem in the end. If you can't do the event, go farm DimWarp and get (almost) the same item. If you have a good DD friend to help you you'll be able to farm DimWarp Bracelet easy long before this Golden Compass event expires.

If they tested  so how with +10 bloody  set  +12 BLOODY WEPON 105 lvl still fail ?

Look at him playing, terrible, slow, opening skill tab and mouse clicking, sometimes not moving at all taking tons of dps for no reason, he plays really bad, ofc he will fail

 Btw 9 pages of complains and there answer was everything is fine . 

This quotes here below mean "everything is fine" in your world? You probably have a high lvl of autism so I'll help you to see what happened "in reality" so far. Thank me later.
 

One day after launch of event:

On 18.10.2018 at 12:45 AM, Juji said:

I am discussing with Dev what can be done to address all of the concerns brought up here and other issues with this event. Apologies :(

still first day after event launched:

On 18.10.2018 at 7:13 AM, Juji said:

Discussing with Dev now on how we can improve the event to make it easier since we have jointly agreed it is too difficult. I also had some information to share for making it a bit easier to complete the event:

If you defeat all of the monsters as quickly as possible in a round, then the difficulty will continue to increase until the boss appears (higher difficulty = more rewards).

If you leave one or two monsters untouched during a round that is not challenging for you to clear and wait for the boss to appear, then the difficulty will not increase anymore.

2nd day after event launched:

9 hours ago, Juji said:

1. I will discuss further with the dev team to see if we can extend the event.
2. After my discussion with the dev team last night, it was their intention to make the event difficult and only allow up to a +7 enchant on the Bracelet since they mentioned it was ran several times in Korea. I will see what I can do from my side to either give a free bundle of marks or get the event extended for an additional week.
3. There are no plans from Dev side to make it a party instance as it would require a complete overhaul of the event.

Upcoming Changes to Golden Compass Event:

  • We will be adjusting the Mysterious Herb to drop from all monsters and increase the herb's effect to P. Atk. 100%, M. Atk. 400% next week.
  • Accessory Solvent item will be removed from the NPC rewards list.
  • The Crystal of Determination will be removed from the monster drop list and replaced with a Wind Vitality Tonic.
  • An exchange option will be added on the Event NPC to exchange the Crystal of Determination item for 1 Wind Vitality Tonic during the event period.
  • We will delete the Crystal of Determination item when the event ends.

Note: I will update this thread immediately if anything changes above.

2nd day after event launched:

8 hours ago, Juji said:

I have spawned GM Buff helper Bora next to the Event NPCs to give out full GM buffs until tonight. The Bora NPC menu got messed up with another region's HTML, so please disregard the NPC's first dialogue.

I need to use a different NPC, cannot keep her up for long :(:(

one more thing Omen..... you say to supports to abandon this event if you can't do it and go for dimensional warp.

All is fine but at dimensional warp we need to invest way more time than in this instance,you need a strong dd to help u kill the mobs and ofc afther that we need a lot of stones.

By the time i finish having a decent bracelet you already have to your op gear a bracelet 6 slot +15% m. atack added to already so high stats.

So me as a support(already 2-4 hits) when we meed in pvp or siege who will have more advantage afther all this nonsense of event?

The gap between top players and above average is getting bigger and bigger, that is why we have so many ppl complaining.

Please define the Total armament and the character level that this event is attended. 105? because 100 lvl character is impossible to complete? +12 weapon +10 armor?

In such a manner the developer of this event typical targets a specific group of players excluding democratically the rest of players that financially hurdle to survive. This could be an approach but it appears to be unsuccessful

Every top DD already has a +5 STR/DEX/INT 6slot bracelet, most have it since years. There is not much difference between +5 stat and the new bracelet, you will not notice any difference in PVP after this event.

Yes this event is unfortunate for support classes I agree, it could have been implemented in a better way, we all hoped for an event that will make *everyone* happy and that is not the case.

BUT at least we see a lot of care and effort from @Juji and for me finally seeing care back in the game from official side outweights one "semi-good" event by far and should be appreciated by everyone.
HELL, it is exactly what we all wanted while Neutron/Conguero were here! Do you wanna know how many times and how long I was banned from the forum by Conguero for only critizising his (and Neutrons) abyssmal way of game-management? I think in the last half year there were more times I was banned than being able to post lolz. I'm bloody happy this has changed and we have an experienced producer back now that apparently loves the game and tries his best to make L2 better, tries to pick up the pieces that those two other guys left ....

And as I said, there is another option to get (almost) the same item in game, so go for that and don't be disappointed too much about it, this event isn't a gamechanger at all and it won't lead to a noticable "more" of imbalance.

I missed that, here's some little tipps:
go Faeron Village from Gludio, go to the DimWarp NPC, stock up on BSOE, get a strong DD to help you, enter the instance, port to the highest floor you can, only kill the 1 or 2 questmobs in this floor, BSOE out, enter again, repeat. Number of quest mobs on each floor is random (0 - 2), if there is none, Bsoe and reenter again.

In this way you can do the quest for 6slot bracelet super fast, it can be done in a couple of days.

To farm the stones for the bracelet: pay higher amount of warp crystals and farm only floor 1 to 10.

Or buy the stones from the market, since last event there are many in AH and ppl. warehouses and prices are quite low, as some ppl. will make the new bracelet there might even more stones hit the market soon. With 5bil (cost from event to make the bracelet) you should be able to make your bracelet +5 unless you are very unlucky, I heard anything from 15 to 50 stones needed on average to hit +5. Good luck!

Well i agree we missed Juji and his attention to this game.(keep up the good work and maybe ppl will play once again this game)

However ppl are waiting long time for a nice event and we get this.

Ppl are even asking for pay to win events like shirt/circlet/jewls/aghations and we get this.

Ppl want red libra or some nice free events to farm on map with decent drop rates and fun items not OP just enough for the average players to catch up a tiny little bit .

What we got in this past month and half is nth.(exept classic server for nostalgic players) and some exp boost.

"We still miss the month preview BTW"(wold be nice to have once again if juji is back)

That is why ppl are so frustrated.

This event you will have +5% bracelet, next one +10%. I doubt that is the same thing as lvl5 dimentional. You gave good tips, but realy is this game only for dd classes? If you say "yes", you should to know mid-geared evi 101 lvl cannot finish this event instanse, for 101 iss it is very slow grind between healing and damage. And boss spawn minions every minute. Do not forgive damage reduction due level diffetence. I wanna say event has beed designed not for our case.

@Juji 

Hello, 

i can understand that this instance is supposed to be hard and that is supposed not to let you go up to +10 with the first try. BUT I would strongly suggest not to extend the event. Simple reasoning: those who struggle to do it will get perhaps a +1-+2 bracelet and will be happy. But those who can easily farm it will take advantage of the extension and go for the +10, creating a huge gap between the intended help to be given and the outcome. 

Humble suggestions:

a)in case of extension: make the dungeon limited on entrances calculating a maximum enchantment point (for example 100 entries) 

b)provide the reward in three different stages: entry, 1st boss, completion. Entry can be something small like 10marks, 1st boss can be smth a bit more like 20 and the completion as it is. The reasoning behind this is that support classes and undergeared players will get at least somewhere before next time and also get the satisfaction and the feeling of not being ripped off or let behind. Or you can make the reward per stage up to completion. (1 mark per stage) 

 

This is intended to be a suggestion and in no case a complaint. I can make the instance on my tyrr just fine. So you can flame all you want :) 

hope this helps at least a bit 

have a nice day

wish my stab have less cooldown like 2 sec, almost failed on 2nd run, was like 50 min long, this 5 sec cd ruin my damage. its not easy to be a othell on aoe instance like this.
My tactic its chase + bluff stab and run and hope i not die.
I have ok damage to all mob but because to many mobs i cant do nothing till i clean it up.

Juji can you ask dev team for do this instance with a gh? with bloody gear?

you think that enough? nah :D even if i have bloody set, still die on mage mobs.on last rb.
there is no aoe on othell that i can use again group mobs.
as i said 1 mob 4 sec, so to kill 5 mob that 20 sec, even top gear cant stay so long :D i know i have fake death but still 1 mob its 4 sec.

Please please do not extend this event or even try to fix it for party etc. It is badly failed and only a top p2w can enjoys this.

please do red libra event again if you want all the players to enjoy l2 live server. That s fun event and can boost xp for everyone including non p2w

It is Ab surdo to pray them for pixels. Yeah, I am addicted to L2. But the fails with events and game imbalance can quickly purify any mind from this curse. There is many projects where developers think about game balance and where, if you pay, you do not feel like third sort people. We do not ask about pew-pew one shot weapons etc. We just want to reanimate this deadman. What they gonna do in future? Why am I still QQ here? I wanna invest in dynamic and interesting game not in the swamp.
