Had to chime in and agree with this one. I've spent hours killing all kinds of different mob types in different areas and I have yet to get any candy for the Lara quest.

3+ hours of grinding and 1 candy. This quest needs to be hourly, not daily, so that maybe people can make up for shitty RNG, since even a fix to the drop rate now would screw people like me who aren't getting today's box. You only get one cookie per day anyway, there's no reason people should be punished by a freaking EVENT for RNG being butt.

This sucks. I get you want people to play, but brutal RNG on what's supposed to be a fun event is not fun and doesn't inspire me to play more whatsoever.

i have to disagree. Otherwise they would have to nerf the boxes contents. Have you seen what all is in that box?

Why would they need to nerf the contents of the box? You get one cookie per day. You need one cookie per box. It's functionally the same as it is now, except changing the quest to hourly lets everyone "catch up" on the candy baskets when they get screwed by RNG/lack of time.

now I know what you mean...I don't see a problem with that....you can't do anything with the basket without the cookie and the cookie is server controlled so...yeah I see no reason that wouldn't work or be ok.

Maybe next year?

God forbid you must grind in korean mmorpg. Blasphemy. /s

This is much better than stupid afk fishing 24/7 in heidel. Also this is completely free and voluntary, you're not forced to participate. It's free, do it or not.

 

The candy drops are rng.

If you're not getting drops, try changing area.

If you aren't killing fast enough, go on easier mobs.

i like to think of it this way. If I do daily quests, or guild mission, or go level a bit....I'm going to grind anyhow.

I find events go well when you aren't really trying but just doing what you normally do.

Now I can see how that might have a counter if what you normally do is only gathering, trading, farmingtraining, hunting, or fishing.

And I can agree that candies should have been put into the loot tables of some of the life skill activities.

But, it is what it is atm, and no changes will it can be available until.the next go around. I remain confident that the staff are reading these topics and looking for feedback, and perhaps it will do some good, time can only tell.

Till then, 3 candies a day...for a chance at boss gear....not really that shabby.

3 Candies a day is easy. I have already farmed over 20 candies, it's just matter of killing things efficiently enough.

It's not hard to get candies because even the little tree spirits near velia drop the candies.

When I grinded I average 1 candy every 15 minutes MAX. Obviously I wasn't killing those tree spirits.

If players are grinding hard monsters that take long time to clear, expect a small number of candy drops.

you should get a cookie with your daily loyalty payout. You can* save the cookie...but you can only do paras quest once per day, so make sure you get the basket to go with that cookie

3 hours to get 3 candies is way too long for a daily. Most players have busy lives and might only have 3 hours total to play a day. Honestly I think the drop rate is backwards. All the other event quests were too easy, I got a drop on every mob and these were one time quests. Dailies should have high drop rates and the one time quests have lower drop rate. That's usually how it works.

This could easily be fixed with the next patch to change how the quest works, whether they do it or just sit back and go "lol" at the fact some people get 1 candy per 10 minutes and others get 1 per 10 hours is another matter.

Is this really all the events? It seems fairly meager compared to the previous months :( Basically just a box that will give you cron stones and memory fragments 90% of the time. And some nice masks (yay).

I expected some extra drops or loyalty shop stuff. I guess we will (hopyfully) get a lot more events on the 26th when the whole explorer event is over.

 

Yanno...more boxes because well...RNA was just not enough.

Too bad there wasn't costume to make players actually look like monsters, like zombies, or skeletons, or have an event at a couple of major cities where undead fill the streets at night & you could hunt them down for rewards

The drop rate on candies is way too low. At the absolute minimum it should be at least 1 every 10 minutes. I got 3 yesterday in an hour and a half. Today I kill the same mobs get nothing in the same amount of time.

This event is a waste of time for those who don't want to grind 4+ hours a day or may not have time and may not even get 1 candy in that time.

A daily event should take an hour at most to complete.

And this was killing easy 1 shot kill mobs.

I am at 4.5 hours and only got 2, I can't even stay up already past my bedtime lol. I usually only play for 3 hours a day and tried to stay up late just to get one more but it's not worth it losing sleep over....Total waste of time, didn't get to do anything else.

Actually it does matter. It matters a lot. You need to fill out your knowledge wheel. You can do the halloween quest because you dont have knowledge of Lara NPC.....you need to talk to Bobby Lauren first, and get his knowledge (he may require you to get knowledge from someone else first.

Start getting that knowledge! (and some CON, o.O)(not having your knowledge book filled out will prevent you from doing MANY quest chains, and theres a TON of loot and freebies from quests)(Heck, i just bank rolled about 5 mil tonight just from doing some quests out at catfish, mansha, and rhutum that got reset with the patch).....

Seriously though, there is so much free stuff locked behind quest chains that you gotta have knowledge to do.
