I don’t remember the exact day, but I think you already addressed the issue in your response to Galroth. I assumed that having “VIP” meant you get a 3rd building slot and a 3rd training slot. I didn’t know that unlike building slots the training slots accumulate to 4/4 and 5/5; I thought you would just get more time on #3.

As Galroth said, this was a VIP I won from Darkness spins. The original VIP I purchased a few months ago, but won VIP twice afterward (although I don’t remember on what day). Screenprint shows the remaining VIP time but you’ll see in the training ground that the training slots indicate 2/2.

VIP issue:

I still have 33 days remaining on my VIP (game shows 33 days remain on my 3rd building slot and my ability to choose a custom picture) but I’ve lost the third training slot in the dragon training grounds. It now says 2/2 and that I need to pay for 7 days (just as if I didn’t have VIP). I’ve tried refreshing but it didn’t come back. Seems like the last time I got VIP, I did it before the previous VIP expired, and while the build slots updated the time left, the training grounds didn’t (although I never actually checked it, just assumed it updated correctly too).

Ignore my post – refreshing the browser seems to have fixed this.

I got a VIP on the new server, Rio, but nothing happened. On other servers I’d immediately get an extra building slot and extra training slot. Is VIP activated on the new server yet?

Topic: Swords & Potions / Sept 6-7th changes review

Originally posted by ShadowLight:

This is to the devs if you bother to read kong forums.

It takes rare mats to make items quester want to be successful but yet the only way to get a decent amount of rare mats is to have quester bring them as reward. So now with so few questers per day mats will go from rare to extinct. (catch 22)

I’d say this catch 22 is exactly my finding after playing a few sets of days after the update. I’ve begun to think that living in the Palace without a steady supply of tokens might now be impossible, since what few adventurers who now show up there each day still all ask for the top-of-the-line item in its class for their adventures (Apoc, Gungnir, etc), all of which require the rare mats. If I read the changes correctly, chance of success drops hard if you give them an items lesser than they request (and I have had all of my adventurers fail so far giving them the same suple dusts/perfect leathers, etc like I used to…), and now at the Palace everything I give them will obviously be a huge downgrade from the awesome item they’re asking for. Once I ran through my pre-update overstock of those items, and did not receive any rare mats in return, I entered the death spiral ShadowLight says here. I’d say 2/3 of the days I play now, I’ve lost money; obviously losing money when I have about 150 million is not an issue, but the motivation to want to continue in that environment is low.

If the intent here was to drive more token business, I can see the rationale, to acquire rare mats, etc. I’m one of several who might be stuck having used their 100 free tokens for other items, and cannot “re-spec” the 100 points I already have in adventurer into something now more potentially useful for the way I play the game. I don’t think the game is at all broken for those who have a steady supply of tokens, but for me, playing the “free” game, I doubt I’ll be able to progress further. If anyone has dropped down from the Palace to a lesser area to experiment with this I’d be curious to know how that worked out, may try that myself.

The suggestion about modifying rewards above too I think is a good one. I gave out a Sky Mantle for an adventurer and got back 65k. I can sometimes sell one outright for that… I’d say either adapt the loot table for successful adventurers (return more items or mats), or allow us to feed the adventurer to the monster’s relatives if all they return with is equivalent cash (esp if it’s a monk).

I’m interested in a permanent guild, currently level 18, 28 sorc and 25 carp available. Typically on twice a day for each full session, happy to offer up points for whatever’s needed. Thanks for the consideration!
