seems marks reward is random - did 2 runs, ~ same time 20 min or so with yul got 2x40 

some ppl do the instance slowly - 40-50 min and die, still they get 60 .. no logic as always, Korean random 

You done that instance too quickly obviously.

For every minute in the instance you get 2 marks i guess?

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 m

Its not only healer/iss/tank that cant do this event, my titan 101 with +8set, full rb jewels and tauti 2h cant do it, its only for top equipped dds.

just delete this event... its getting annoing to most of us!   i guess they have cameras inside this instance and  records every bsoe or deaths for the developers to watch and laugh of us

to summarize event problems

  1.  its only lvl 100+ and all faces same instance (probably should be made 99-104 and 105+ so ppl can get easy mode with low rewards and hard mode with beter ones)
  2. difficulty is to hard its impossible for new or even older player to get any rewards if they don't have good gear and by good gear i mean +10r99 or +8blody set and +12 bloody weapons and other stuff accordingly with lover items its fast death for most classes.
  3. rewards are so random ( i heard someone got only 25 coins even after he killed all) its impossible to get top bracelet with rewards like this max +7 but probably +6 or +5
  4. no rewards or xp for killing mobs only boss drops something.

so overall event idea is good but we got it so unpolished it became bad event who is viable only for top players with really good gear

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.

@Juji@Hime

U talk to devs?? u saying it as they would work in other company and you did well to tell them something that is the 1st thing, another one is, do u even test event or YOLO place something from KR and let see what gonna happen??

Still have question about rewards - is 25\40\60 coins are just randomly reward, or all depend on time of killing mobs?

 

because all strong DDs around have got 60*2 , less strong 40\60*2 and  that few supports, which survived - 25\40*2 coins.   Again supports are scapegoals

@Juji @Hime I know you are busy with this thing Classic....but we, players from live servers, kept NcSoft floating many years.
Pls fix this event...The problem is with those minions who hit very very hard. I mean I have bloody set, good 3 sa weapon, jewels,pve cloak, etc and I died 6-7 times per round..aka round 0.5% exp loose per round at 103 lvl....and I got ony 25 marks.....rly?
I just cant imagine a character 100 lvl doing this instance without draon weapon and ultimate items....for this you made this event???
Event is for all 100 +...healers,enchanters,tanks,dd. Pls do your magic so every play can finish this instance.

I dont see any of this to be a non good for the players and ncsoft .

Thank you @Juji and staff for looking into this. I do have a few questions.

  1. Will the event duration be extended to take into account that many people are unable to currently participate due to the difficulty?
  2. Will the rewards be adjusted so that the top (+10) bracelet is potentially achievable?
    • Currently if you do the math on the days of event vs max reward only +7 is potentially achievable (that's 2x instances a day every single day of the promotion while also receiving maximum reward every day.)
  3. Is there any consideration to, rather than adjusting the difficulty of the instance, making the instance a single party instance and allowing all characters in the party to receive the reward?
    • Currently I have seen people take up to an hour per run, with strong DDs still taking 20-30 minutes to complete this. Given that Lineage is an MMO I would hope group activities would be more widely encouraged than solo activities. Taking 1-2 hours every single day to solo an event eats into the majority of many people's play time. I know many of the people I play with (myself included) can only afford 1-3 hours of play a few nights a week due to work and other life responsibilities.

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.

Congratulations juji, but tell the developers that the reality of korea is a bit different from ours, here we do not have the gear they have, the level barrier has been broken in a very short time, the hunting zone drops and istancias are infimos what makes such a comparison complicated, yet I still thank you because I see that you can try to get this server out of the abyss that he is heading ... thank you.

1. Vou discutir mais com a equipe de desenvolvimento para ver se podemos estender o evento.
2. Depois da minha conversa com o time de desenvolvimento ontem à noite, era sua intenção tornar o evento difícil e só permitir um +7 de encantamento no Bracelet, já que eles mencionaram que ele foi executado várias vezes na Coréia. Verei o que posso fazer do meu lado para dar um pacote gratuito de notas ou prolongar o evento por mais uma semana.
3. Não há planos do lado Dev para torná-lo uma instância de partido, pois exigiria uma revisão completa do evento.

Próximas mudanças no evento da bússola de ouro:

  • Nós estaremos ajustando a Mysterious Herb para dropar de todos os monstros e aumentar o efeito da erva para P. Atk. 100%, M. Atk. 400% na próxima semana.
  • O item Solvente Acessório será removido da lista de recompensas da NPC.
  • O Crystal of Determination será removido da lista de drop de monstros e substituído por um Wind Vitality Tonic.
  • Uma opção de troca será adicionada no Event NPC para trocar o item Crystal of Determination por 1 Wind Vitality Tonic durante o período do evento.
  • Vamos apagar o item Crystal of Determination quando o evento terminar.

Nota: Eu atualizarei este tópico imediatamente se algo mudar acima.

I have a level 105 fho with dark equipment (set +10 weapon +12), I managed to do the istancia, it was not easy but I managed, but the question is how do players from level 100 to 103 with medium equipment? I think this was not tested with a toon at level 101 ...

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.
