I’d suggest everyone send a message to R2 and not waste your money on this — if you do this type of thing will only get worse and probably become the main means of monetization for them.

The capture rate is irrelevant to what I’m discussing.

What IS relevant, is that the only red astrals which CAN drop are HP ones

I just captured a red PDEF astral a couple hours ago, so this is not true.

Topic: Akaneiro / Suggestions and Ideas

I’ve only been through the first five zones, so I probably haven’t had the ‘full experience’ yet, but there’s a few comments/suggestions I’d like to offer.

One, the threat system seems pointless. I don’t mean in the sense of the maps getting harder, that’s interesting, but in the sense that it’s basically impossible to keep overall threat low due to how long missions take. I just don’t see the purpose of the system as it stands now. I’d suggest adjusting how it works somewhat, maybe making the zone difficulties selectable, or having more things contribute to threat than just time.

Second, the bosses have too much health, are boring, unchallenging, and unrewarding. Thus far, using a cunning build with medium armor, there has been no boss with a chance of killing me at any threat level unless I fall asleep from boredom as my character slowly auto-attacks it to death while occasionally healing. Maybe this is just a consequence of my build, but compared to the frantic and fairly fast paced battles with normal enemies, the bosses are kind of a letdown. I’d suggest giving them some more unique abilities and attack patterns.

Some kind of semi-randomized quest system might be fun too, giving something more to do than just repeatedly grinding missions for karma.

Oh, also please either default auto-attack to off, or let the game remember the setting. Auto-attack is instant death for my squishy character.

Sorry if this sounds overly negative — I’ve actually enjoyed the game, but it could still use plenty of improvement.

Topic: General / is it me or is colosseum designed to be a pain

Colo isn’t that bad if you optimize, though you have to have bought out a couple of NIPs to be really good. Beyond that it’s just stat farming and more stat farming.

Thank you wpatter for bringing it to my attention that there are people out there who thought that we were a grab your raids free for all and I hope that now you all can see that we share our raids fairly that we may get a higher number of applicants in the future.

If you want more applicants you should probably make the process a bit less opaque. I’ve been seeing the umadbro raids appearing in chat for weeks now, and still haven’t got the faintest idea how people join it.

Topic: General / Bugs

This seems more like an oversight than a bug, but the mini-boss in Lucian’s final quest area (Oral Examination) is Mardachus’ Beastman, which I imagine is supposed to be in one of the final ‘back in reality’ zones.

  • Question for erebus – what build is better?
  • 1) Fire of vegeance or dragon cleaver (the purple one 100 – 100 + 200) ?

    2) Kessov horse mount or loyalist horse mount (with no other loyal items) ?

    3) Pure kessov set or hybrid with more attack stat?

1). Dragon Cleaver.
2). Probably Loyalist.
3). More attack.

Topic: General / Tips on SP farming?

Here is how to farm properly:

- Hit FS-OS on normal difficulty farm raids, which are: Grune, Wexxa, Erebus, Guilbert, and Bellarius, in that order of priority due to how quickly they die. Some people also hit Lurking Horrors, Gravloks and Erakkas to farm, but the rate of return is worse for whatever reason. Maraaks are also good when they come along (rarely).
- Hit AP damage (FS/2) on any NM difficulty farm raids. Why AP damage? Because there is a lot of extraneous junk in NM raids loot tables, and the 20-40 extra stamina it takes to hit OS is just not worth it vs. greater volume or raids hit. Also, AP damage can get you up to 2 epics. It will also guarantee that you have a steady supply of grey/brown items.
- The personal raids from z10 are good for SP farming. Which one you should summon depends on how quickly you do damage. Animated Armor is the most efficient though stamina wise.
- Once you get up to a higher level and start doing NM DLs more regularly, you can add z9 raids to your farming list to get teeth, as they drop quite frequently.

Topic: General / One Million Raids!

So, according to the raid IDs, the one millionth raid is about to be summoned on Kong (if it hasn’t been already).

I propose some sort of special event to commemorate this (mildly) momentous occasion! Also, it’s nice to see the player-base growing and thriving.

Congrats to Rigerz. :)

And if someone feels the need to spend hundreds of dollars every month on this game, well, hopefully it’s at least funding lots of new features. :P

Topic: Shadowland Online / Shadowland Online Olympic Games Event !

It’s still broken for me, for over a week now. Server: Frost, Name: Aesu.

Originally posted by zqgame:

Dear all,
As for the Olympic Event, the devs are considering canceling it, and we will figure out a way to compensate the player s who meet problems.

Having to cancel it seems a pity, but a compensation would be nice since pretty much anyone who chose a hard question had issues.

Still broken 3 days after the betting question. I guess the bugs in this event aren’t going to be fixed? It doesn’t seem like there’s been any movement on that front…

Topic: Shadowland Online / Shadowland Online Olympic Games Event !

The event mentioned in the ‘betting’ question today is already finished, but it still says ‘expect the answer tomorrow’. Is this going to freeze the questions for days again? I’d seriously recommend that you stop with the betting questions, as they just don’t seem to work.

Topic: General / Your game is broken, and you aren't fixing it.

Well, the fact that there is so much lag shows that the player base is increasing, but I agree they need to get better server architecture and/or optimize the game’s programming immediately.

They should just make the trinkets drop automatically if you have the correct combination of items. Collecting them is a challenge enough w/out needing to spend ages farming for the drop.

Topic: General / NOT ENOUGH HEALTH or STAMINA

Check the patch notes, it’s a known bug where the client and server get out of sync. Refilling your health or refreshing will make it show the correct value.
