    Correct.  As I said, the DK event, from March 1st to March 8th, had 20% during the week and 100% during the weekend.  It's over.

    I'm pretty sure this is wrong.  The DK bonus XP event ended today with server maintenance.  It was supposed to have 20% during the week, 100% during the weekend, and end after one week.  No new xp event has been announced.  The combat xp weekend event ended in Feb.  We're looking, as far as I can tell, at zero xp bonus even on the weekends outside of the Olvia servers, for those who can access them.

    Imagine your company said it was throwing an 'employee appreciation' event.  Free food and entertainment is promised.  You show up at the event, and it's some folding chairs and tables set up around a beat-up game of Monopoly with some stale cupcakes that say 'Happy 12th Birthday Ashley' on them.  Would you feel appreciated?  That's pretty much how my experience has been. My Lauren Family Gift Box had an item so bad I can't sell it at the minimum price.  I vendored it for less money than I get from ten minutes of gathering.  My boss kill reward was a horse whistle I'll never use.  Three of the four discount coupons showed up after I'd already bought my DK all her weight limit expansions and inventory and costume.  
    In short, this party's gift bag was empty.  The entertainment was so bad I'd rather have stayed home.  The food gave me food poisoning.  That's some real customer appreciation right there.

    Let me rephrase - The rewards were described in a way which implied every reward was received, as opposed to boxes which list that one of the listed rewards would be received.  By the description conventions the game has created, every item should have been received.  Also, you know, 'bundle'.  A single item does not a bundle make.

    The rewards were listed as a bundle, in a way that made many players assume they received the entire bundle for participating.  Instead, when participating I got a horse flute that I'll never use, and wasted a bare minimum of a half hour, probably more like an hour total, to get it.  Wasting my time with trash events advertised as anniversary events meant to reward the player is certainly cause for complaint.  Better to do nothing than what they've done so far.  Personally I wish they'd just stuck to the DK event and just not bothered with this mess of an anniversary.

    Yeah, I got a Ring of Cadry's Guardian.  It's unsellable.  Even at the lowest price possible nobody buys them.  All together, the total rewards from the anniversary event can be surpassed by a solid fifteen minutes of gathering.  Woo.
    Thanks for more disappointment.  I can say without a doubt that the last two days have drastically reduced my opinion of, and enjoyment of, this game.  Things like this may not change the actual gameplay, but they have a way of casting a shadow over everything and sucking the fun right out.  Constant disappointment isn't my idea of a good time.

    So, what I don't get is that there's a special notice when we log in about attendance rewards, with a little black spirit and an exclamation mark or whatever.  It's not the monthly loyalty one, because it states it runs until June.  It takes up half of the notice window - equal billing with the DK event.  Yet there isn't a single change to the returning/rookie rewards other than 'extending' it until June.  'Extending' in this case just means 'no existing players get anything new'.  How is this worth drawing attention to and advertising?  Every time I log in and that pops up it just makes me feel a little more cheated, a little more like they really don't give two s*!@# about us.  It's just a monumentally lazy way to not have to put in anything new, rewarding, or interesting.  'Oh, we'll extend the event for three more months, even though everyone's already collected everything, so we don't need to add anything new.  Sounds good?  Great.  Let's call it a day.' 
    Seriously, wtf?

    Oh, they showed the playerbase how much they care about us and respect us, all right.  Showed us that they don't.

    If you want to see what real anniversary events should be like, check out what Gazillion does in Marvel Heroes.  Free heroes, free loot, massive xp and loot drop bonuses, special event quests and drops, buy one get one free sales, massive discounts... the list goes on and on.  It's a massive multi-week event where the players feel appreciated and rewarded.
    Here, I feel like they put coal in my stocking for christmas and sent me to bed without dinner.

    The worst part is that no amount of feedback, protests or complaints will change a thing.  We're just a secondary bonus market, not their 'real' customers.  They're not going to come out and say 'oops, we're sorry for taking a giant dump on you guys for our anniversary event, here's a real reward'.  They'll just glance at the forums, shrug, and move on.  The amount of effort put into the event proves we don't matter, the lack of response to our feedback proves we don't matter, and nothing we can do is going to make us matter.

    And it sounds like they're just extending the 'loyal' and new player login reward event, not providing anything new to, you know, loyal players.

    Two newish players looking for PvE-focused guild
    My brother and I have been playing for about a month, and have been 56 for about a week.  We've yet to join a guild, and figure we're about at the point where we should become more involved.  We're primarily PvE players - I'm open to trying out things like node wars, but I have no idea how much I'll enjoy them, so I wouldn't want to join a guild where attendance at pvp events is mandatory.  We're both 40 years old (twins), and have been playing MMO's for almost 20 years (started way back with ultima online's pre-alpha).  We've done competitive raiding in EQ and WoW, but are at least slightly more casual than when we were racing for server firsts and waking up at 4 a.m. to grab rare spawns for epic quests.  As far as gear goes, I'm mostly in pri/duo (ult grunil's, liverto's, witch earrings, green tri awakening weapon, etc).  My brother is, of course, less well geared than I am because I'm just better than him (or have more free time, but I like my first answer better).  What we're looking for is a guild that's not just starting out and has some stability, and one that at least has skills like gathering +2 and fishing +2, and regularly does bosses and other pve-oriented group activities that we haven't been able to try solo.  We have used teamspeak, ventrilo, and mumble in the past, and I have discord, although my brother may not have used it before.  If any guilds meet our criteria and are interested, I'm on my wizard Finnien most of the time, and occasionally on my alt Sinneas when afk-fishing.  Hopefully I'll hear from somebody sometime soon... somebody... anybody... please?  I mean, I'm totally fine, and if anyone contacts me, that's cool, but I'm not desperate or anything.  Really.

    Wiz/Witch Duo Question
    My brother already has a Wizard he started a few days ago, and convinced me to start playing.  I'm debating between a wizard and a witch to join him with.  From my research I've gotten the impression wizard is slightly better/more fun, but Witch has different buffs.  Would a duo of wiz/witch be more effective than duo wizards?  Or should we just double up on the Wiz goodness?
