@Rin Will these ice cubes be storable in the account warehouse or tradeable? In the event that they are not, can the devs possibly make a change to the items to be at least storable in the account warehouse?

It always amazes me how shamelessly you place these pay to win events without any regard or worry about unbalancing the already dead population.

This is not even an event, is a sad excuse for players to use the shop:
"Hey you can get x6 LEVEL 1 of these items WEEKLY if you kill x1700 monsters!, but if you deposit $70 USD you can get x25 of those items and x5 of said items at LEVEL 3 AT AN UNLIMITED AMOUNT"
Nobody from the team in charge of this stuff has been logged in for more than 30 minutes in the game, actually clueless actions for a clueless company, these people making the easiest 15/hr 9-5, I wish that was me LOL.

Unfortunately, the Ice Cubes are not tradable and cannot be stored in the account warehouse. I also do not believe we can get a change on this prior to its release tomorrow. As always, I have put your feedback (and others, of course) in to my document and will let them know ASAP. As always—no promises—but it has been noted!

That being said though, SOME reward items can be stored in the account warehouse. Not all, and it's a lengthy webbed list as some selection boxes have selection boxes inside them...  I've also documented feedback and will see how we can add this information for what is or isn't account warehouse storable or tradeable in the future!

I apologize I don't have better information at this time, but I hope this helps a little.

Will [BCM] Sanctity Potion be storable in the account warehouse? there have been many events where this item is a reward, and it just sits and takes up space since you cant combine them with the ones you get from combining dust. Being able to move these to 1 character would help people that need to use them to fix corrupted items. Makes no sense for them not to be storable in the account warehouse.

@Rin Are the runestone boxes you choose from Prime Runestones? It just says Dazzling Gemstone/Runestone; but whether it's a normal/greater/prime runestone matters very much :')

**EDIT**

Also, can the lugbug kills be completed in alliance? Would be interesting if we had faction trains running across the map

Correct, according to my team, they ARE Prime Runestones! Also, the Lugbug missions can be done in a group, but NOT alliances.

Hope that helps, Aria!

They must find solutions so that the community has fun and comes to play. If they do events that only make quick money for the team, the game will die and more than one of the team will end up losing their job. Find a way to keep the few people you have happy, so those who want to come back will come to stay.

Aion still has salvation. It has good pvp and decent graphics.

They can create a free event that encourages players to participate and get into the game. A side event for the business to generate income. If you only create events to generate income, people get bored and leave. Aion Na, a few years ago it was known as the free Aion, now it's the same as gameforge. See your community, you only get negative feedback.

Wow more pay to win stuff, who could have guessed, +10 runes/gems. You are really milking it dry mate.

Its not p2w stuff at all, because u can get ice cubes by farming and also by buying them, but the rewards are the same... U can get dazz/prime rune +10 with farmed ice cubes or with bcm ice cubes. This is what event says:

The following items can be obtained from the different level [BCM] Gemstone/Runestone Selection Boxes.

Item

Includes

[BCM] +5 Gemstone/Runestone Selection Box

[BCM] +5 Runestone Selection Box (18 types)

[BCM] +5 Dazzling Gemstone Selection Box

[BCM] +7 Gemstone/Runestone Selection Box

[BCM] +7 Runestone Selection Box (18 types)

[BCM] +7 Dazzling Gemstone Selection Box

[BCM] +9 Gemstone/Runestone Selection Box

[BCM] +9 Runestone Selection Box (18 types)

[BCM] +9 Dazzling Gemstone Selection Box

[BCM] +10 Gemstone/Runestone Selection Box

[BCM] +10 Runestone Selection Box (18 types)

[BCM] +10 Dazzling Gemstone Selection Box

and so on, u can't buy RNG so it's not p2w at all since no rewards are purchased directly in the BCM. It's RNG based event.

Ah yes, i can grind for days and get 6 (SIX) cubes for free per week, or someone can swipe their card and get 100s (HUNDREDS) instantly, we are at completely equal grounds, and yes you can buy RNG, the more tries you have the better your probabilities to get the good rewards are(statistically),  and who do you think has better odds, the ones with 6 cubes, or the ones with 100s/1000s? Totally not p2w.

@Rin Just a suggestion, but could players have some Renown Tonics to refill our current levels of renown? Part of the event was to allow players a break from re-building renown during the event, but our renown was already reduced on Monday... So, we are not really getting the intended break this week.

afk mobs will get you 10 hours- 12 hours with geared alts  24hours+ if ungeared. Can u please change the reward for people who finish 1k mobs without group will get instant +5 ice cube? and if they are in group it will not be counted? Dang wasted my hours to get this exp crystals I didn't deserve this and to all who is trying to get 1k mobs don't deserve this ridiculous disappointment.

There are two problems with this event:

  • First problems is that this is an auto-hunt event so the amount of mob kills it requires is based on that (aka too many), you either auto-hunt it or you do not participate! Apsaranta is not an auto-hunt friendly map, nor does it give us any gaming experience to have yet another afk event on a pvp map with the potential for the char to either die from guards, get stuck, fall from a height or get killed by enemies.
    ~> It would have been much better if the event required to kill (lets say) 200 mobs instead of 1000 and not have auto-hunt so we do it manually.
    ~> Even better, keep the mobs 1000 but make it an alliance kill, so engage the players to do activities with other players and revive the game a bit.
  • Second problem is that RNG is probably the worst thing NCSoft ever implemented on the game. It is pure gambling and it sucks.
    ~> It would have been better to make it so you can get a higher cube by doing a harder quest or something. Like get 6 simple cubes or get 1 cube that is already enchanted to a specific level, you want to gamble with 6 smaller cubes and have the potential to get more enchanted ones, or get 1 cube but ti is already to a good level, and you should be able to make a choice on that!

Events are supposed to be player engaging and rewarding, this event has none. It mandates you to do it afk, because 1000 mob there are insane to do manually, and it doesn't reward you anything other than RNG-frustration.

Archangelos is 100% correct....apsaranta is not auto hunt friendly... this event is pointless if you don't have full gear and skill enchants.... the only people who will be able to participate is people who have yornforged, paragon or FS weapons.... also I'm going to make a point here... the gemstones are an insane item to give away right now.... it's almost like they are trying to purposely kill Aion.... Everyone needs to continue to post the way are posting.... oh lastly I want to make point here because angelos here has made a statement that these events are like gambling...I've made multiple complaints about this...there are children who play this game and children who are family members of mine who want to play with me...and well me and my family do not want our children playing a game where they need to gamble.... this needs to stop... please rin please tell ncsoft we do not want our children gambling it's illegal!!!

I kinda want to make one last point...because originally I was going to come to the forum to say I thought the event was going to be good... then I realized after angelos's post what I really needed to say... anyway... the event actually isn't that bad.... server population is low and ncsoft can't just give everyone stuff for free... the fact that these high enchanted gemstones and runestones practically don't exist means that ncsoft needs to make sure the that this item doesn't ruin everything...therefore only a few of these items should be given out and to those who need them and or have full gear/ weps/ skill enchants...remember there are a few people in the server that are full and maxed out with little left to do... this allows there wealth to be spread for a new  item they need...

 

I'm gong to emphasize that I think it's great ncsoft is listening to the community... but sometimes the community thinks they want something and in reality it's not really what they want...

I would gladly take over aion if I could;)

 

Lastly any gambling event should not require real world money,  in pokemon there where slot machine's when I played as a child... but never did I play with real money...

I can't take my child to the casino it's illegal....

Neither can anyone else!!!!!

So far the only acceptable afk event is Garden of Growth. It has a normal and an easy mode so people could decide depending on their gear. The difference is in the HP and XP of mobs but the event coins are identical on both versions.

Nobody asked for an afk event. They could make it an alliance kill, I bet you the game would revive for the duration of the event because people would form alliances to kill 1000 mobs and it was going to be fun!

Correct again... look at how the community was during alliance farms at the coast!!!!

It was growing

My friend made a good point... you can't do things that require a community to do if you don't have the community to do it...

Regardless... the last afk event was ok... and well this one is basically all twisted and just like angelos said no none asked for an afk event.... it's like ncsoft just doesn't care...

...lol the worst part is that the level 1 fail ice cube gives you 10x big XP crystals which is a total of 539.299.530 XP while the 2nd fail gives you THREE... yes THREE xp extractors, worth 1,5m kinah!

The level 3 gives you two big stars which is marginally better than the 1st reward.

The level 4 is almost useless as well.

The actual reward starts at level 5 and forth! And that is if you are lucky to get the rune/gemstone and not the refining stones again.

~~

At this point I wish I could trade all my ice cubes +1 for 10x crystals and save me the hustle because it never fails at +1 and it will most likely fail at +2~+4 range.

Or just make it an alliance kill and call it a day!
