    The entrapped spirit paced, it was almost time. The stars would soon be in alignment. His freedom was in the hands of others. Would they bring the four items needed to free him? Or condemn him to a continued life of nothingness…

    ooc: Meet at the Entrapped Spirit’s location Friday, 10/28 6 pst.

    How about why you felt it was a waste of time? Not everyone here was at the event or knows anything about it.

    exactly, i havent heard anything on what the event finale ended up being, I missed it but would like to know if it was worth missin. Havent seen any worthless yet overpriced EM items sellin yet so im guessin it was mostly RP.

    I did enjoy the quest building up to it tho, was kind of confusing at times but was a decent story.

    the spirit asked for the items that we found on the quests.....it asked Everyone there, so it meant that only one person needed the items. so much for the quest....although i do agree it (the quest) was fun. the items, however, turned out to be not needed from an individuals standpoint. this all happened in the dungeon that the quest started by the way.

    once the spirit had the items, it seemed to do something (nothing too spectacular) and some uber skeleton knights and uber skeletal mages appeared. very high hit points, took a while to beat them down. we saw the usual lag because of so many people.

    we had to kill about 5-8 of each (maybe). they were violet in color and had different titles/name...cant remember the name.

    well, we killed the last one, EM showed up and said event was over and pointed to a gate that took us to trinsic. That was it. Over.

    no special loot, at least nothing i heard of. no drops. just killed some high hit point bad guys that were a special color. Sudden end and....click...off.

    ah... well would have liked to make it actually then, I dont mind fighting crazy mobs and its even better when they dont drop useless deco items that xshard noob chars try to sell for insane amounts of gold.
    I was however kinda ticked off at the anti climatic end to the Gargy Queen Defiler quest, were we had to fight a renamed night terror just to get a em item. Would have liked to see the defiler a lil more powerful.

    Well hopefully this is just a lil test of the quest system to help set up for more EM events that are worth doing. I prefer the events that you can do on your own time since not everyone can make specific times.

    Thanks. From the sound of it it doesn't sounds like a bad quest. Although as described it does seem a bit anti-climactic, kill boss, good bye.

    A bit of work needed for a more satisfying ending I think other than the death of a boss. At the very least a victory feast somewhere at the end, a gathering for everyone.

    You appear to have the following criticisms of the event.

    1. Not a strong enough ending.

    2. No item.

    However, you did like the quest itself.

    Let's face it, it's your second criticism, the item, that your post is really about. We can tell because your first post, the vague one, called the event a "waste of time," which is usually a code word for "I got nothing."

    I have yet to even once hear someone refer to an event as being a waste of time because the ending was unsatisfactory relative to the rest of it.

    No one should go to an EM event thinking it'll be a "waste of time" if an item doesn't drop or, worse yet, if he or she doesn't get one or feels particularly entitled to one. (As too many seem to.)

    It's really just stupid to do so, to be honest. Between the fact that most events don't drop items and most players don't get items when they DO drop, to go to one SOLELY for an item is a tad on the dumb side.

    There's many better and more reliable ways to make money in this game.

    Go to the events for the events. And try to judge them on the whole, not just on one factor.

    Bad assumption on your part....

    my fault because i wasnt complete enough in my answer...lazy i guess

    i could care less about a "drop"...i have been to plenty other em events where nothing dropped and i had fun.

    the story line....well there wasnt one. just an abrubt end. I dont think im the only one that feels this way, but if i am...ok.

    the halloween event this year was poor from all persepctives....devs, shard. I just expected a lot more stuff to do this year. The poor event last night added salt in the wound.

    Thank God PAS had a fishing tournament during October.

    so....thanks for the analysis at any rate
