Challenge of the Gods - February 17th?

Does anyone else feel this event will be a bust? Let's consider the following;

Amaunator ----- Kill 5 enemies; No At-Wiil Powers in 3 minutes
I would say this one alone is highly improbable, if not impossible.

Corellon ----- Survive 30 Seconds in Combat while Below 50% Health
The below 50% health is doable. I don't know about the survival part?

Kelemvor ----- Kill 5 Enemies while you are Below 50% Health
Maybe?

Oghma ----- Use Daily Powers 3 Times in 5 minutes
With the way things work now, you have to be joking right?

Silvanus ----- Kill 10 Enemies; No Encounter Powers in 3 minutes
This one is more possible than Oghma.

Sune ----- Use your Encounter powers 10 times; While in combat 3 minutes
Oh come on now! Sune do you know how long it takes for just one of those to recharge?

Tempus ----- Kill 10 Enemies; No Daily Powers in 3 minutes
No problem, we have been living without those so long, I forget which keys to press!

Tymora ----- Kill 10 Enemies; No Healing Potions in 3 minutes
Wait... we have healing potions, oh yeah, I have been chewing on Health Stones for so long, those slipped my mind.

This is just a selection of the event challenges. I am curious, if the development team thought this out or if there will be new rules? Opposing views are always welcomed.

Have fun!

    It used to be a fun event (at least in my opinion). But I think it would need to be pretty much completely reworked with different challenges in order to be fun again. I may or may not participate in the next one on console.

    There were only a handful of those I would bother with in the past anyway. So without a reworking this event is an even larger dud to me and a definite pass.

    I've pretty much ignored it for years. The other Divine inspired events have the same loot, rather meh quality. But at least they just give the stuff out. Challenge makes you jump through hoops for forgettable rewards.

    I think last time I did Challenge of the Gods, I got the forgehammer, so I was happy. Don't see a point in doing it anymore because I'm pretty sure the forgehammer is bound when obtained from this event (I might be mis-remembering though).

    I like the challenge when it pops. I always like to see if I can solve it.
    For the characters I played and with VIP, I think they can all do most of the challenge.
    I play Rogue, Warlock, Barbie, Cleric, Ranger and Paladin.
    I can't tell how Wizard and Fighter can be done.

    Amaunator ----- Kill 5 enemies; No At-Wiil Powers in 3 minutes
    This would be easy for my characters. Just use AOE encounters. With VIP, they can all teleport to Dread Ring. They have been doing that for the weekly AD quest. My Rogue and Ranger (or even Cleric) can kill 5 in dread ring using one encounter.

    Corellon ----- Survive 30 Seconds in Combat while Below 50% Health
    Teleport to dread ring. Now, it may be easier than before. The issue I had before was their health went back to be above 50% easily.

    Kelemvor ----- Kill 5 Enemies while you are Below 50% Health
    This is again easier than before with no life steal anymore.

    Oghma ----- Use Daily Powers 3 Times in 5 minutes
    This is now tricky. With mystic Cleric Artifact, each cast gives 25% AP. You cast one daily to begin. Hence, you need to fill AP twice in 5 minutes. Cleric Artifact can be cast 4 times with mystic to get one more daily. Hence, somehow, we need to fill up AP in fighting in 5 minutes to get one more daily. I think it can be done. For Ranger who does not use all the AP to cast daily, it will be pretty easy.

    Sune ----- Use your Encounter powers 10 times; While in combat 3 minutes
    This should be easy. Says the cooldown is 20 seconds, for the toon that can have only 3 encounters, it can do 27 encounters.
    Most encounter cooldown is not 20 seconds and Ranger has 6 encounters, Wizard has 4.

    Ogma should be doable by anyone by holding down atwills on a training dummy. Takes 1 min to fill AP.

    I do open Waukeen's Coin Purse hoping for AD to drop. I don't mind getting the teleport scrolls as I tend to collect them. I don't use the VIP signpost, I stick with teleport to PE scrolls and the teleport to Moonstone Mask scrolls. Other than that, the whole event seems outdated now with the change of game mechanics.

    They should all still be doable, especially in SH or Dread Ring. I used to have to strip down a lot for anything beyond 50% health, but now it should be easy enough.
    Oghma will be easy for my HR, but even if not so, there are some ways to fill AP more quickly (battlehorn, food, some gear) but yeah, if its too much trouble you can always just skip Oghma.
    I think I used to skip all that were too troublesome (50% health, didn't want to constantly undress to get rid of lifesteal) and it was still nice to do on the go. I have never "farmed" this event, if that even is a real thing.

    I'm pretty sure it won't have new rules.

    Did it last time, not easy, but works.


    Corellon ----- Survive 30 Seconds in Combat while Below 50% Health
    The below 50% health is doable. I don't know about the survival part?

    Kelemvor ----- Kill 5 Enemies while you are Below 50% Health
    Maybe?

    Kelemvor is easier IMO, as for Corellon's - getting down to 50% AND having combat go on for more then 30s that's hard! ;-)


    Oghma ----- Use Daily Powers 3 Times in 5 minutes
    With the way things work now, you have to be joking right?

    I did get this to work last time. I was using one of "Dew" potions to generate AP faster and waited for my AP to be full at start but is not easy, as I recall I prolly had about 5-7 secs to spare.


    Silvanus ----- Kill 10 Enemies; No Encounter Powers in 3 minutes
    This one is more possible than Oghma.

    The only way is with Daily and generally weak enemies.


    Sune ----- Use your Encounter powers 10 times; While in combat 3 minutes
    Oh come on now! Sune do you know how long it takes for just one of those to recharge?

    Easier on a wizard, since they have 4 slots... As for other classes, yeah...no so much.


    Tempus ----- Kill 10 Enemies; No Daily Powers in 3 minutes
    No problem, we have been living without those so long, I forget which keys to press!

    Tymora ----- Kill 10 Enemies; No Healing Potions in 3 minutes
    Wait... we have healing potions, oh yeah, I have been chewing on Health Stones for so long, those slipped my mind.

    LOL to both!

    I would agree however, after all the changes especially with longer cooldowns, some adjustments to this event is needed.

    Go to an easy area such as Dread Ring.



    Corellon ----- Survive 30 Seconds in Combat while Below 50% Health

    The hard part is to wait to 50% health. The easy part is that 30 seconds of 'combat'. You have a Paladin. You can just stand there for 30 seconds with a shield or running in circle. If you have to, drink a health potion.



    Silvanus ----- Kill 10 Enemies; No Encounter Powers in 3 minutes
    This one is more possible than Oghma.

    The only way is with Daily and generally weak enemies.
    Go to Dread Ring and use your at will to kill everything.



    Sune ----- Use your Encounter powers 10 times; While in combat 3 minutes
    Oh come on now! Sune do you know how long it takes for just one of those to recharge?

    Easier on a wizard, since they have 4 slots... As for other classes, yeah...no so much.
    Easy for all class. Even if it is 20 seconds cooldown, any class can cast 27 encounters in 3 minutes.
    Ranger has 6 encounter powers.

    not gonna be fun doing that in mod 18 for vast majority of player base
    There are more than BIS players in this game
    It has been 5 YEARS since last new class this is getting ridiculous
    Master expeditions is a good idea. Just extremely boring if it is only thing you do for 2 MODS
    Please do master/normal version of dungeons. This way content for all MOD 17 have nothing new for vast majority of player base
    Changes are getting so bad i would rather prefer no new changes (RIP ICE FISHING in winter fest)
