    As the Ranger/Warden of the Abyss events start to end shard by shard (GL's is over as of today, LS's was yesterday or today, I am told) I wanted to say that I thought you did a good job with this event. There was fiction, it was appropriate to the event, there were rewards that struck a nice balance between rarity and unobtainable, there was reason to be interested even if the main goal had no appeal to you whatsoever.

    I am looking forward to Magincia.

    I agree wholeheartedly, even if they did mess up the announcement and mess up the information a bit (not making it clear how long Part 2 lasted), they apologized for both, which shows character. So I will wholeheartedly say that I am very impressed with our current development team.

    Heck, it even spurred me on to use quite a bit of time to persuade those who cancelled their account, to reactivate again.

    Yes thank you dev team for all your hard work on this quest. This was a great quest and I know that I personally got many people to join it. We spent hours collecting the keys for everyone to get a chance to run as many chars as they wanted through. You all deserve a round of applause!

    Yes, very well thought out, very fair, great story. This is how quests should be.
    I must say.. the new dev team after SA has come up with nice stuff. Halloween, Turkeys, Ranger quest... all were very entertaining. The Ranger quest takes the cake though.

    I agree with you. I did not do it but seemed fair for those who did.

    I agree! I don't know if the idea was a group thing
    or one person's idea but whatever, some really good
    analysis was thrown in along with a large helping
    of common sense! Damn thing was so fair I'm not
    even the least bit upset I didn't win. Very happy for
    those that did!

    Whatever process you guys did to vet this, please use it again!

    Totally agree.

    Fair
    Fun
    No overpowering of individuals
    Good Rewards

    and

    When there was a glitch at the beginnning, it was owned up to and we moved on from it.

    Excellent job Devs. I cannot wait for the Magincia Rebuild.

    (Just an Idea on that, how about a statue of me in the center of Magincia - Just an Idea I thought I would throw out there :) )

    Beyond 'accepting' the Quest I didn't participate, but I have heard good feedback from those who did. :)

    Maybe that's what all the little ink bottles will be used for.

    On a more serious note..That's a lot of beer bottles.

    My objective view: very well planned and event that drew players out of their comfort zone. For the weaker characters, the event fostered teamwork and mentoring.

    My subjective view: YAYYYY - I won :lol:
