Upcoming Changes to Daeva Ranger Event Missions

Recommended Posts

Kibbelz   

Due to a technical limitation with the way point-gathering Event Lugbug Missions work, we'll be prematurely ending the Daeva Ranger Event Lugbug missions on 9/30, to make way for a new event starting that day. We considered the extreme difficulty of some of the Daeva Ranger missions when making this decision. In order to make up for any lost progress related to this, we'll be providing the following:

1. (5x) [Event] Wicked Gracheni's Vault Bonus Entry Scroll
2. (15x) Event Coin Bundle

We have also added Event Coins to the new event's missions, so you'll be able to gather approximately the same amount as if you had fully finished Daeva Ranger's.

Thanks for understanding!

.... Para compensar cualquier progreso perdido relacionado con esto, proporcionaremos lo siguiente:

1. (5x) [Evento] Pergamino de entrada de bonificación de la bóveda de Wicked Gracheni
2. (15x) Paquete de monedas de evento

También hemos agregado Event Coins a las misiones del nuevo evento, por lo que podrás recolectar aproximadamente la misma cantidad que si hubieras terminado por completo las de Daeva Ranger.

@Kibbelz

is this per character or account?

Thank you for updating the event quests to reflect that we don't have the auto hunt system here.  Also, thank you for the compensation, much appreciated! =)

@Kibbelz speaking of the current event...can you guys look into a fix for if a player DC's during the vault? The scroll to use to xform back into the shugo ranger only works in the starting room, which you can't return too if you DC in the last room of the instance.

Do you have an idea when the survey will be sent out? A lot of people need to know because it's almost impossible to grind out Ranger Vault instance in two weeks time (since it ends on October 14 maintenance) for the locked legendary contract. We weren't aware till a day before this week's maintenance about the key being renewed, and getting 9,800 event coins by doing Vault till the 14th is almost impossible unless you have a lot of luna to burn.

You can only buy the contract on one character and one character needs 9,800 coins. If a player supposedly has 0 coins, and does Ranger Vault Event ONCE from 9/30 to 10/13, that will be 14 runs, the minimum you can get from each run is 30 coins if you get S rank (because 5 is lowest amount of coins you can get from the candy tower whatever it's called). Although, I haven't heard of anyone getting 30 coins in a run, since it's usually between 5-10 coins sometimes 20 or 35 and a lucky 100 per candy tower. But let's say the average you get from each run is around 70. 70 coins a day for 14 days = 980 coins. This number is a rough estimate, some can get lower and some can get higher than this but the highest could be around 3k coins till Ranger event is over. Giving out the 5 reset scrolls helps a little in changing that number & event coin bundles. But we don't know how much event coins those event coin bundles give. Perhaps they can get us to around 5k coins where we need to farm 4,800 more.

 Lugbug event missions don't give enough event coins along with the daily login coins to reach that number.

Although @Loki said the Baron npc will stay for awhile (and we don't know how much "awhile" refers to), we would still not be anywhere close to 9,800 coins by the end of this month.It might take another month probably. I'm not sure if you guys will do future events to give out more coins while the Baron NPC is still there to get the contract.

So a lot of people to be safe, need to reset Vault and do multiple runs, to get 9,800 coins and they need to open those bundles from survey to have an idea how much luna they need to use to reset.

There is a reason the event coin bags were/are storable in your account warehouse.  There is a reason that each unique character class on the account (that looted ONE class mastery book) got a survey for 1k coins which could also be stored in the warehouse.  

I'm 100% sure you're not supposed to be able to farm enough coins to buy a legendary contract from running one wicked vault entry a day for the duration of the event.  Not only would that be ridiculously easy but it would give the opportunity to earn way too many coins per character for those with multiple level 80s.

If you didn't store every characters small and large coin bags in your account warehouse to be opened by 1 character for the legendary contract I doubt you can achieve a 2nd legendary contract before the event ends.  However, going forward I strongly advise doing this so you can pool your coin bags and withdraw them to open as necessary.

Of course, that is in an ideal situation though. You're not getting the point here.

I described a hypothetical situation where someone has supposedly 0 coins as some are in similar situations to that where they have few coins. I don't fall in that situation since I stored my bags in account warehouse, so thanks for the advice that I already know about. I'm speaking up for people who have this situation. When the Mastery Book Event came, you could get 1k coins survey bag. You could delete duplicate class characters and re-level a different class. That's 12k coins for 12 toons if you have prestige (which everyone should have even with 7day free pass). 12kcoins -9,800 coins= 2,200 coins. If you consistently logged on all 12 toons lvl 80 to grab small event coin bags and stacked it in account warehouse, then yes it's not a problem. It's a problem for those, who chose the latter in, "oh, since we cannot obtain more keys from bcm", should I save these event coins for future events where these coins are reused or should I use it to buy from Baron NPC on items that I need. A lot of people needed to + up their stigmas to 15 and baron npc offers 5 per week at the cost of 450 coins which used up some of the bags before this Ranger vault was introduced. If they purchased it on other items as well ( manastone selection box since not everyone is able to get hidden mobs, Daeva skill box, Refining stones, enchantment stones, Sovereign weapon box if they can't be taken to BENM, Locked Minion A contract if they don't have an A rank minion or if they need one to combine for S rank minion, etc) , then they lost a lot of coins on that. Some people decided to buy Ancient contracts costing 1k coins to try to combine for a legendary if they don't have the proper one from the first contract. A lot of people had to spend their event coins, especially if they are new/returning players who need to catch up.

And then they suddenly decide to renew the key, but some can't even farm it or if they try to they need to reset with luna multiple times on one character if they want a legendary because we don't know if we'll get more coins in the future from dailies/missions/future events and if the Baron NPC will be up by then to buy the locked contract again.

All my original post is saying, is to give out the survey asap, so people can burn their runs, and calculate off of it. if they want to wait for future event that gives more coins or next month till they get 9,800 and if baron npc is still there, then buy it then. but if they want it by the end of this month and not wait for a possibility of baron still being there next month & them getting 9800 coins by then, then they can reset ranger vault. but they need that surveys bundles to calculate.

I did get your point.  You obviously missed mine.  The event coins are the standard currency going forward, so my point was...

You're not going to be able to get EVERYTHING you want every time an event NPC merchant is up.  Prioritize what you absolutely must have, and then just wait for the next time the event NPC returns and again, spend accordingly.

That is IF the event Baron NPC returns again. That is an assumption and possibility we don't know about because of lack of clarity on this. We don't know if Baron NPC will stay there next month or in the future so that we can buy the contract then. All we were told is Baron NPC will be up for "awhile" and will not be gone on 9/30.

Edit: To clarify better, we could get a different event NPC when baron is gone that uses event coins and offers different items than baron npc.We don't know what NC soft will do. We don't know if Baron NPC will be there next month either as well.

Again, I will quote what I said.

In other words, if people want to still prioritize on getting the legendary contract this month and not wait next month/in the future, and they have few coins to work with right now, then they need the survey to see the situation they are in. If they want to spend luna or not, and if they need to spend luna how much do they need to spend so they don't over spend. But it relies on the survey.

This is the key take-away from Maika's post, and a very reasonable request.
