    Gonna be real with you. Most people don't feel good after a grind like the post-drop rate nerf void weapon was. And that was a grind that had two tongue-in-cheek achievements with it about the sour taste it left in your mouth.

    Looking at all these Varnimyr achievements makes even socketing decent stuff (and the titles) look like a void weapon tier grind. These grinds need to stop, especially when we don't have the playerbase of KR to support grinding many end-game dungeons in the first place. The less players can find rewards from the end-game with a reasonable amount of effort (right now, it's not), the more players are going to be left behind when the next region comes out.

    The majority of the playerbase seems like it's incapable of even running 12-4 without at least a couple people with +11 void weapons, and yet +11s are still notoriously difficult to obtain, void is still not fun to get, and elrianode armor while not as bad, can still be pretty rough. Combine that with a small player base, and new players will be turned away the further into the game they get because not only is there hardly enough players to carry them, but there's hardly enough active players available to carry in the first place.

    The QoL changes we've been getting have been fantastic, but I can't imagine the huge grind and paywall behind getting even close to the meta would do anything but cause a higher player turnover rate. And with these new achievements, it feels like KoG is trying to get us to embrace that grind instead of toning it down like they probably should.

      Agree, but no only the grind, but also the RNG and Pay to Win features, scare the new players realy quick, more over that now are a lot of free to play options that dont had a Pay to Win model, more like pay to look fancy, so the game will have trouble to apeal new player, like the years, the player base is getting smaller in a slow but steady pace

    The Halloween Ghost suit is stupid AF, and I love it!

    Glad we finally got more stuff to drop in Elrianode and Varnimyr. The potions definitely aren't award winning, but it's good to get some more stuff on my MP bar. Late game stuff not dropping craftable consumables kind of had me worried for the long run since I wasn't exactly seeing a net gain in my MP pot count outside of events.

    Though we do need to get Varnimyr toned down and more accessible at least by the time area 13 comes around. It's a pretty demanding roadblock for the majority of the install base.

      Eh, can anyone confirm that the medal from the event are stackable or not? Planning to use them efficiently.

        The medals are not stackable, i think <(")
        Just tried to "slightly-opened" the box to see if the medals stack or not, and i don't see any lines saying that they're stackable

      There is a bug with Mad Paradox his "Awakened will: Diabolical Esper" passive isn't working. The additional critical is fine, I don't know about the critical damage but the Additional Maximize is not working. I'm at 90% max and see no change.

        You mean it doesn't has any change in dungeon/any other place, or just doesn't visually increase in stat window? :-/
        Wait, have the flat bonus stats from passives ever been added into the stat window? :v Because my luciel's awakened will also doesn't show in stat window, but it still work properly (as it was always shown as a buff for some reason :v )

        As it doesn't have any change anywhere. Doesn't change in stat window (Which would be really nice) nor does it change in actual dungeons/ any other place. The problem with the maximize not doing anything got fixed in 2016 maybe they messed it up again and repeated the same mistake.

        Is that treasure box encounter rate an increase or decrease? Also, can anyone confirm whether or not the drop rate medal stacks? (there is no indication that it does, but there is no indication that it doesn't)
