    In these 2 days I replayed whole zone several times and got only few rented ghosts! WTF is going on?! 6 years and I cannot craft even the legion?! First one?! I always have damn bad luck, but this is too much even for me!

    I didn't like it because: Vexanna material Shadow Elf Wrappings has insanly low drop rates which is why i gave up on her in the first place!!!
    Instead, let's: either not use such difficult items as a requirement, or stop making drop rates of certain items so low. I have spent way too much energy trying to get those glove.. i'm about to give up on it again.. (Still only have 5 of them!!)
    umm the "legendary" items are supposed to be kind of hard to get in the first place.

    Average energy needed to quest in that zone is 111.5 which means, my drop-rate was 1 out of 116 quest clicks
    The drop rate is very low and hurt further by being only one of four concurrently running miniboss events (ghosts, hoof prints, masks, alchemist) in that zone. It's a problem found throughout the month, all the quest events are focused in a very few zones so each of those has multiple events running. Those event drops end up competing with each other with the player as the potential loser.

    Simply put: I adore this new update. I'm just flabbergasted. Thank you for all the neat little things you put into it.

    Lastly, please fix the rented/leased ghosts event. The drop rate is ludicrous, and always has been. Just make them fall.

    I rather grind for a second Vex than waste 1 and a half KBs.

    They didn't even announce those contests in game so many people didn't know about them until it was too late. You ***** about the stupidest crap.

    one, seeing as we have the gauntlet back next week, I have to once again ask why do you not allow us to update out battalions at least the week before the gauntlet? would easy to put a button inside the gauntlet shop to access the battalion for editing would think. ideally don't see any reason why it shouldn't be accessable all the time, but the week before would give players time to poke around and update it before it starts.


    two, why not add the rented ghosts as rare drops from the ghost master's tonic? it does fit in with the theme of it dropping ghosts. and it even would semi make up for the detail that the alchemist mini boss distracts from the chance to get the rented ghosts. also would be a simple way to at least be able to claim the rented ghosts are available year round.
    [curious does mathias or any other troop summoner summon the rented ghosts?]

    I think since most people came too late or were not around for training ground scroll 2, you need to have that event again otherwise it is pointless to have a crafting behind an event that doesn't happen once or twice a year.

    Am I the only one who couldn't get any Vornstaag minibosses to drop the rented or leased troops? I dumped over 10k energy on all levels (per current statement and past statement) and nothing. What is the deal?

    I only hit the last area on nightmare (for AP), but I have gotten leased troops. I haven't tested any other area or difficulty though.

    Didn't get even one single rented ghost in whole quest zone replayed (once and once and once and... again)!
    WTF?!

    And this event is only once in an year?!

    We can't get enough damn ghosts before we retire (in real life)!

    Improve loot chance or make these rented f**ng ghost more than once!

    Other areas of this zone works (I think years ago I read somewhere that other areas have higher chance to drop different ghosts) but I don't think non-nightmare difficulty works because banner says Nightmare mini boss drop

    Clearly not. I hit dozens of minibosses. Why such a disrespectful response, especially from a moderator? Have the rules suddenly disappeared?

    Sorry for being disrespectful. I thought you didn't get any mini-boss encounters in the zone.

    To be fair your response was not disrespectful but kudos for apologizing none the less. I commend you for your offering a possible solution to the poster's problem - and checking if stealth is on is a very real and valid suggestion. Especially since the poster didn't say they hit tons of mini-bosses, just "and nothing." This is similar to I.T. asking if you tried restarting your computer yet, and is a helpful gesture that often is a very real solution.

    I seriously doubt in 10k energy not one dropped, but that the fact that rented ghosts are located in the Event craft tab; and have to be searched is the issue (that devs did not move it to the new tab for the event so it is readily accessible). People see leased ghost in the new tab and think that is the drop, but rented ghosts have to be crafted into leased ghosts.

    This event should be continued and fixed. We are encountering lot of alchemist minibosses, which are giving only tonic, also other minibosses gives lot of useless (now) masks and green hoofs. Too much miniquests at same time, in same zone! So as most people here I failed again to get enough rented ghost to upgrade even the legion! And of course it is not possibe to get enough to upgrade Verna, even for first bonus!
    Devs, please listen to us and don't let us wait for another year! And if there is another item to be crafted with leased ghosts - we are finished!

    My very favorite thing about this week's update is: [Zone 9.10: Hymn of the Bell; Gate of the Underworld; ]
    I liked it because: [Awesome troop & general; good boosting and upgrading things on useful]
    Maybe we could: [-]

    This week I didn't care for: [Pumpkin' Pickings]
    I didn't like it because: [A lot of players had a lot of work to get this familiars in the past. So now it looks like they did their works for nothing. Now this familiars are not so special, they are common and for free for everyone]
    Instead, let's: [Next competition should contains also PC, so atleast contestants will get something, that will not get anybody in future for free. Their creations will be evaluated]
