In the previous 2 monster taming events players went hard on it because it was one of the few free ways to get Diamond Anvils and by far the best way. Everyone keeps saying “IMC is trying to remove Diamond Anvils from the game” so removing them from the event is not too unreasonable, but this event was already nerfed hard the last time it came around, the only reason it was as popular as it was, is because of the reward.
Bringing it back with mediocre rewards, is mediocre but that’s okay, compared to the shitty events we’ve been getting like Rainbow Trek this is still kind of good. Until ofc you see all the additional nerfs this time around…
The cost to level these things is insane, most people cannot compete with that level of farming so 132 is not gonna happen today for your average player. Especially if they’re not even motivated by Diamond Anvils.
However let’s just say that Mediocre rewards and horrible leveling rates were not a big deal, we all get past that because it’s finally a decent event. Even then you get 2 runs a day and you get 1 currency per 10 levels. If you manage to get 300 day 1 and you farm every day that’s 60 per day for 22 days that’s 1320 of these things total Cubes cost 50 each and ARE CAPPED?!?!?!? WHAT? For all 30 cubes it takes 900 of your currency. Pretty sure the cube cost was far lower last time.
If you had put these limits on the event while Diamond Anvils were a part of it, I think it wouldn’t be a big deal, people would still do it and the only real issue would be bad luck people getting 0 diamond anvils while good luck people get like 5/30
However the fact that the best prize is Primus Armor or Attributes which are both far easier to get via other not limited sources, both of which will also be far easier to get during Rebuild as well, it means this event is just bad.
It was a fun event, but:
- The grind has been made too harsh in both player level requirement and monster leveling requirement
- The items and currency gain are too limited
- The prizes are mediocre, which again is not the same as bad prizes, but in an event this harsh, it’s not worth it.
I honestly hope this event becomes a permanent system in the game someday where new bosses are released each month or so. However it needs so much fixing atm, this round is a complete failure. Please salvage it. If you don’t want to give us Diamond Anvils, I get it, that’s fine but at least make the effort put in match the rewards gained.
I’ve seen enough bad ToS events to not care about, between Rainbow Road and those stupid events where you can’t see anything but can’t let monsters touch you. At this point I’m over complaining about events as a whole, but this is an event that I was looking forward to, it was so good the first time and even during the second time with all those nerfs it was still great. I don’t expect it to ever be that good again but if it was at least worth doing that’d be nice.
The one good thing I can say is due to the coin entry system it appears as if we don’t have to run the dungeon right away to get the maximum entries? I’m not sure on this but it looks like I can just not worry too hard about the event for now and level slowly while I wait for you to make this event not suck. I hope that is the case.
