update: 12 legendary chests without receiving a single bow

interesting that devs blatantly ignore all requests and don’t even honour this thread a single reply. Celerity; care to comment?

Topic: Dungeon Rampage / Dungeon Rampage Request Thread

Just to add on to legendary key prices:

Have now opened 8 legendary chests for my ranger without receiving one bow which is the only crucial part for a ranger. It is completely ludicrous to charge 125k for a 1/3 CHANCE of obtaining the desired item. It is poorly designed and forces me to spend hours and hours of farming PKB for the last piece of the puzzle rather than actually enjoying the game.

The way I see it, the problem can be resolved in 2 ways: 1) Reduce legendary key prices or 2) Make chests weapon type specific/abolish chests and allow people to buy a random weapon type of choice instead/complement chests with a slightly more expensive option of purchasing the desired weapon type in legendary format WITH COINS

The current design is horrible and encourages a lot of people to cheat w speedhacks and bots so either lower prices or fix the structure for the sake of the game itself

It’s a problem, yes, and yes, it’s unacceptable – that’s why they’re trying to FIX it.
Keep in mind, there was stupid amounts of lag before this upgrade. One of the reasons for the upgrade was that there was so much server lag. Lots of people like the game!

Let them fix it, and yes, it’s annoying, frustrating and time consuming – that’s all part of the growing pains. It’s rare when an upgrade goes off without a hitch. Come to grips with the fact that the realities of life apply to this game as well – it isn’t some sanctuary apart from the real world.

I’m sorry but the whole basis of your argument is incorrect:

1. This post was created way before server “downtime” which happened yesterday (thread was created Aug 3)
2. What you think was an “upgrade” was not an upgrade. It was a server breakdown caused by a “human error” from 5PG’s side. Hence lag was not a reason for it and previous updates have all failed to deal with the lag problem.
3. No details regarding server repairs has been released apart from being listed as an ongoing project in Patch Updates – fair to assume that nothing immediate is being done to repair this

Get your facts straight before you even start to form a misery of an argument like yours.

Your problem with what I said is incorrect Hizzak.
1. The THREAD might have been started before the downtime, but what I was responding to was Norma who posted TODAY ( and was talking about not expecting anyone to play a game “this laggy.”)
2. Fair enough, I assumed that the server broke because they were trying to fix something while trying to deal with the lag issues. The fact that it crashed a day after the patch couldn’t possibly point to an adjustment made by the team causing a problem, now could it? Moreover, I never claimed the lag caused the breakdown.

Perhaps you should try to correct things in an effort to bring clarity of what is happening with the game, rather than claiming everyone else who disagrees with you doesn’t have “the facts”.

Perhaps you need to reread what I said and substitute the word “patch” for “upgrade” – maybe that’ll remove your ill-conceived ire.

I believe you are the one who needs to review your previous statement. First of, so you’re saying that you simply ignored to read the previous comments made by Norma and just narrow-mindedly focused on his very last post? Or that you simply chose to ignore past raised concerns to focus on his harsher stance in light of recent events? No matter what the reason, the way you have written your point makes it seem as if though you discard previous grievances, which was my point exactly.

Perhaps you should read up on something before posting your ignorant claims. The situation is perfectly clear, all the details are there to be found but you seem to be the only who fails to comprehend what has been described. Furthermore, I solely focused on you because your ignorance was annoying and your idea that I claim that everyone who disagrees with me does not have the facts is preposterous. I enjoy a sound argument but yours is, yet again, a failure of one.

In addition; IT WAS NOT an upgrade OR a patch. It was a server crash and a repair (or reboot if you’d like). My ill-conceived ire seems to be perfectly justified.

Hey devs, wouldn’t it be good if you actually responded to this thread? It is probably in your interest to give players an update on this and let them know what is going on and no bullshit like “We are actively working on fixes…”

thx for telling us whats going on Felendis we appreciate it :)

Hizzak: he said “check back in hour or so”, so weeks? really?…

Check back doesn’t mean fixed. I was asking for an ETA on when systems would be back up since then I would know how often to check forums – did this confuse your little brain?

Could you please estimate ETA a bit more in detail, if not hours then days or weeks, and also give a reason behind this would be very much appreciated.

Originally posted by Nitromand:

Hizzak,

It has been hinted over and over and over and over that changes would be made to the game in this way. People have just been ignoring them (shame on the high lvl players for teaching people only to focus on Energy/Stamina).

Also, remember that it’s up to people themself if they want to sacrifice all the skill points to achieve LSI 7. People could choose NOT to do that straight away, and rather just focus on getting higher BSI in the begninning IF they have an uncontrollable desire to finish questing fast.

This game is all about making choices. There is no formula for people to follow anymore. Just plan ahead now and you will come out on top eventually.

Im sorry but you just missed the entirety of my post… what I’m saying is high leveled people can easily incorporate these changes whereas those in the mid zone trying to finish off quest zones just got f*ed. Suppose you were to be in z8 at the moment of this change, as in my case, and all of a sudden there is a huge (damn right, HUGE) bump up in quest boss atk, this would prevent me from advancing any further without spending masses on def and hp which were basically worthless in previous patches. A player who has finished z9, on the other hand, with all the benefits of recently having finished quest areas could simply start again in lower level quest zones. Benefits would include e.g. DL, farming opportunities for SoCK 3

Re formula; there will obviously still be a formula to follow since you wont need the additional def/hp points after a while— however low leveled people will now be forced to shift from LSI 7 and atk bump up (WHICH previous players applied and thus experienced great benefits) to a more def and hp focused build. The scale of the bump up makes this change greater.

My main point is; a gradual increase in quest boss dmg would be a much more suitable way of changing the game. This would lead towards gradually more def+hp focused builds and would slowly be adapted into the system without complaints and/or problems

This is a good way to put new players at even more of a disadvantage.

FAO devs My question is why the hell did you not implement it gradually instead of the insane bump-up you’ve done now? People with weaker builds and without LSI 7 are now forced to spend more points on defence and health whereas people with LSI 7 can simply shift focus from atk to def, health spending. Sure this seems like a reasonable idea to incorporate into the game but you can’t (well should not) simply increase it tenfold
