[News] Golden Compass Event

Limerence    18

I, personally, do it in about 30 minutes on a 101 Evis with +8 B. TW Set, normal epics, 3lvl jewels and Enhanced Fighter with 15% crit dmg passive aug ... That's just it... I can't manage to get 60 on each, but I'm on 40 marks reward ... It's fine ...

We will discuss with the Dev team on rolling out events like this in the future and taking lower level players into consideration next time. I will see if we can do something magical for next month :)

Discutiremos con el equipo de Dev sobre la implementación de eventos como este en el futuro y la consideración de los jugadores de nivel inferior la próxima vez. Veré si podemos hacer algo mágico para el próximo mes.:)

O.o is grateful for the concern

The event has been extended by an additional week to allow more time to earn marks and the changes will be deployed this week during the maintenance.

An herb will be added to all event dungeon monsters with a 1/3 chance to drop and now has the following stats below:

  • P. Atk. +100%, M. Atk. + 400%, P. Def. +2837, M. Def. + 1785, Speed +7, Vampiric Rage Effect + 5%

Crystal of Determination will be replaced with a Wind Vitality Tonic for the item drop from Votan. Anyone with a Crystal of Determination item will be able to exchange it for a Wind Vitality Tonic at the Meirin NPC. Accessory Solvents were removed from her rewards list and will be deleted along with the Crystal of Determination on 11/21.

Done this event instance *today* on hero iss lvl 105 with pretty good gear (not a PVE dd geared ofc - why would I have that on iss). Took me 48 mins to finish and result was 25 marks. People can confirm I'm not a bad player for sure.

So please Juji teach us how is this doable on support classes. You mentioned they've tested it on a lvl 101 healer. This is clearly a nonsense if you think about that considering a lvl 105 support can't do that normally.

You're either running this event with a wrong parameters or there is some other reason. But obviously this is only doable on a strong DDs now.

 

Lf hero coins refund spent on these useless passes - yes i bought them before testing this ;-(

Good night

Another event made for powerful DDs and well equipped, ally, very, but very equipped. I tried to do with my main char, a Sigel Eva's Templar, and as everyone knows, too low damage, nor using the skill that wields the sword with both hands, it worked, because I lost defense. In short, NCsoft creating more and more, events thinking only well-equipped players, but it seems that Iss, Healer and support in general, with a good level of equipment, is having problems, congratulations to NCsoft, so the game desistimulates more and more players.

You're too low level

Hate to say it, but if a preponderance (~95%+) of the people that are level 100 - 102 can't finish it, then they ought to change the entry requirement, or tweak the mobs in a way that helps with completion rate. True, Kartia and other instances are much more difficult right at entry level, but they can be done and with average gear by a majority of the players. It just takes them longer. In fact, Kartia can be done even if you don't have R grade weapons and armor depending on the class. That's not the case here. Most of the people that do it easily are 104-105ish range and well-equipped with semi-stacked DD characters. Just for the heck of it, I tried it with a 100 Wynn, +7 Bloody Ret, +6 Eternal full element, Boss jewels, level 4 jewels all around, and GM buff scrolls with +6 STR p.atk nano. I figure most people are in this range of obtainable gear and tweaks. Needless to say, that character didn't finish it. I had to do it with my 101 Tyrr, who has ungodly equipment, +17 bloody slasher, +12 Eternal bloody full attributes, full +5 STR/CHA dyes, level 4 - 6 jewels, skills enchanted up the yin yang to max, every manner of top accessory and boost known to man or beast, etc., etc. It should not take all of that for the average person to participate and complete the instance at below 103. If it does, then tell the player base so, so that they can stop wasting their time and energy on this "event."

Could someone please tell me what decides on the 40 or 60 marks?

I have done the instance tonight, no different than I would any other night, and the first time I received 40 marks only. I was also at wave 26. I was out the instance in roughly 22 minutes. The amount of effort and energy used to put into this event for something like this to happen, makes me not want to.

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.

I've done TWO Merkios’ Altar instances today. The first one I reach Stage 30 and get 40 Merkio's marks. The second one I reach Stage 28 and get 60 Merkio's marks. @Juji In any point of this thread (or website event description) says "do more stages and get less marks", it actually says the opposite... so... is there any good explanation for this?

I might as well just slack off a bit in this instance since it's korean random anyway?

P.S: Support ticket #22577635

You're not alone... Apparently the server decided that today people should randomly get 40 marks O.o

Someone I know, who usually finds it difficult and very lucky to get 40 marks, got 60 marks today. Another char, who finds it easy, got 2x 40 rather than the usual 2x 60. Something odd happening...

Keep us posted on your support ticket please!

Until the events cannot be done by my support characters. I will skip them because I don't want to support disbalance and waste my time.

It should be fun and easy. I find it hard to understand why people are willing to spend hours passing the zone.

If I don't get a generic answer with the usual "we're sorry, we'll forward this to where no one will check, nothing will be changed, bye" :S

Agreed.

Healer last night, got to stage 18 and received 60 marks.
I usually get to stage 25 to 26 and have usually get 60 marks. I've occasionally got to 27~28 and still got 60 marks. I once got 60 marks on stage 24. I've even taken a couple of minutes longer to kill the last boss and still got 60 marks.

Last night was strange. Stage 26 for me and only 40 marks, yet stage 18 for a healer got 60 marks. No mobs left behind before killing either of the bosses.

Total randomness?!!

usually for me 1st boss appear during 7 - 8 round

 i kill almost all mobs at 7 and leaving 1 than go to green circle and wait for boss when it raises i do aoe stun and interrupt shield so u do not need to do 100 hits

 

the last boss for me appears in 17 -18 round

i do the same leaving 1 mob and wait for boss appear, do stun aoe and interrupt his shield, it is more  easier to kill when no monsters around just rb.

 

and it works for me very well, and as i mentioned different last rb appears and you can know how much coins you will get,

but is it random or it depends from something i do not know.

Feoh 104,back on game after 3years almost naked toon... Gm buff scroll and int stew buff, +6 r99 set, cheap epic jewels, +8 bloody retri 1sa ,I do instance 50-55min and always get 60coins. 1st boss spawn 8-9wave second boss spawn 18-19wave and always 60coins. My only advice for not taking 60,happened to me only one time,be careful not to delay to kill a wave and one mob stay behind when next wave spawn,you are supposed to be weak you loose 60coin...even if you reach stage 50...If someone need advice on how to do easy on feoh I could help,pm me,other classes sorry cannot help.

Yes, it appears there is a random chance for receiving 60 or 40 marks. I am checking with Dev for further details.

You nabs don't care to do even little research on this, srsly waiting everything handled on a plate, gear from store, adena from selling ncoin items, instances to be handled by the staff, soon you're gonna ask how to wipe your ..... staff.

 

Since several days I've figured how to get constant 60 marks per run, but I`ll let Juji eventually tell you the trick xD

 Evi 104 low to mid gear , 2 runs per day / 1hour total time for 2 runs /  > allways same 40+60 or 60+40 think reward is random , no matter if some mobs left when kill final RB  or room clean :)
