Holiday Bosses


25 posts in this topic

Posted

So I know that the holiday events have already been created, but, wouldn't it be cool if there were World Class Boss Monsters to go with them?

Just like mudster, kzarka, etc....

Holiday bosses would spawn at random times, and send out mail gifts to all that participated in taking them down.

For Halloween, we could have Lord Skeleton or Dracula ?......Christmas we could have St.Nick or Krampus?......Valentines we could have Cupid in some mangled evil form.....Easter, Mr.Bunny (zombie bunny)(exploding baskets lol)

Would love to hear what you all think about the subject. What kind of Epic boss would you specialize for a holiday mob? What might be his special attack? what kind of items might he give out?

Waste of resources. Not like they can just pull bosses our of their asses, and then for only ~3 weeks?

from a development standpoint. they would simply copy the bosses models and code. Only a skin would have to be created, change the code for spawn location, and adjust said bosses loot table. Pretty much just copy & add with a new skin. Now to make it worth while, the rewards they give out could be tailored to the event, or copy&paste what we already get from boss loot...

Where you see a waste of resources, I see a potentially game improving idea quite worthy of investment. At least I'd have a fighting chance at maybe getting on the loot ladder...instead of making garbage posts about insanely unfair drop rates and getting so worked up I quit.

I want a Candyman for Halloween next year. I'll come back from wherever I am by then just to kick that guy in the nuts over and over and over again. Then I want him to ask why so I can kick him in the nuts again and then pretend I didn't hear the question.

you say Beard, my mind immediately sees large pirate ships sailing the ocean, commanded by strong world bosses Red Beard, Blue Beard, and Black Beard.

Though what holiday they would fall under, Im not sure yet.

Awesum idea, but there should really be a scroll version of this aswel. Not everybody has a scedule where they can wait for bosses to spawn randomly. Uness it spawns like every hour

And yet they create costumes and decorations which are no less work for every major event out there - this isn't a valid argument and you know it.

Have to agree with the OP and some of the other comments here, this game is quite possibly one of the worst for seasonal events. They are oh so quick on filling up the cash shop with items to milk a few more £££ out of everybody but give little in terms of content for it.

When you look at games like World of Warcraft, Guild Wars 2 and Skyforge they really had some depth in their seasonal activities.

I don't like you but this is a great idea! Maybe drop a piece *guaranteed* if you gather 3 or w/e you get a bundle with actual reward not Cron stone.

They are not really new ideas, seasonal bosses have been out for years. Dwarves Brewfest and Halloween from Wow were classics. But possibly my favourite were the guild wars 2 xmas events, dedicated team instances for snowglobe and who could forget the snowball pvp... loved that !

Yes, you are right. But comparing the way good old times were remembered (e.g. the pvp snowball fight) very positive and similar activities are missing or expected in BDO, they are good ideas for BDO (which could provide more fun for us player).

Now if i were to suggest a mechanic creation that would take a bit of work....i would say...

For Valentines Day......

Two Bosses. One Red Queen , and One White Queen. Each queen allows players to "sign up" to their army. At the scheduled time, the opposing armies are automatically ported to the 'battlefield' and pvp mode is engaged (guild war style of course)..... sound familiar? The winning side gets all the Tarts i suppose,...no jabberwokies im afraid.

While I'd love this concept, 1: Suggestions. 2: I don't think PA would have time to first implement/code it, then send it to Kakao THEN for kakao to translate it for this year. MAYBE Valentine's day (although I don't think that one needs a holiday boss. I would agree with Halloween and Christmas though. Maaaaaaybe (a bit maybe as it is stretching things very very much) an evil easter bunny boss or something for easter).

So IF (and only if) Kakao first forwards this to PA and PA agrees/accepts this suggestion, which is unlikely, I think we might be able to see this implemented earliest at Halloween or Christmas 2017.
