Holloween Event Is Broken

teamstephonteamstephon Member Posts: 166 Arc User
since the halloween event has came out this year is there a reason why they had to make the broom mount 50k while making the sash impossiable to get cause all ive been hearing so far is nothing but complaining about the event and how lame the pinatas where so why didn't they not just go the either way without making all of us work hard for the sash cause after I couldn't get that one for a second time that it made me not want to do this event anymore and was hopping maybe they would of fixed it

    I only got lucky getting one sash on the 30 try but after trying again no luck where I ended up given up on the hole event because of that

    I gave up yesterday of the event, I spent hours farming pinatas and after more than 50 I did not get any sash...This update from yesterday had no effect (at least for me)

    It's the same here, i did my daily rounds for bags, got a few pinatas, opened them all and still no sash.

    I might burn through some leftover pinatas from last year on my other characters, but i'm not going to farm more of them.
    I'm done with the whole "farm hundreds of cursed bags for a few damn pinatas to get a single bloody sash drop" HAMSTER.

    And if this event is a preview of what to expect from the Winter Festival or any other seasonal/regular event "rework"... what a waste of time and money.
    I do believe in killing the messenger...
    Want to know why?
    Because it sends a message!

    I got my sash on the 4th pinata I did after the patch. Went through about 60 before that.

    . I agree cause if they hadn't made this event as a joke and would had given us the mount as a free gift as a treat than yeah I would of said thanks to them if they hadn't ruined it for us to get

    I'm honestly surprised that they weren't selling packages of those Bags in the Zen Store. Maybe thay are waiting for the last day or two to get the desperate people :)

    I don't know. It appears it is way better now. After the patch, I got 47 tasty treat in an hour. The day before, 3 total since the beginning of the event. I also got 30+ liar outside of PE in that hour.
    I also got the sash. Members in my alliance also reported they got the sash.
    It may still be considered as "bad" but before was way way way worse.
    The game can read your mind. If you want it, you won't get it. If you don't expect to get it, you will.

    I'm still not getting tasty treats or liars charm from killing enemies. Maybe 1 in 15 minutes of grinding mobs if I'm lucky.
    Not to mention still no witches sash, terrible drop rates on bristles and the pinatas themselves as well.
    Not fun at all.

    I don't know if that made any difference. I went to WoD because it is more fun over there to aggro 5 to 6 groups and clean them all at once. Less time consuming and I could finish some quests at the same time. That is where I spend an hour.

  • caspatia2#9228 caspatia2 Member Posts: 3 Arc User
    This event is so terrible. There's so many people on (including me) that it's actually lagging and crashing the servers. Why are there so many people on? Well, the drop rate for everything is terrible, that people are staying on for hours, or days, trying to get the pumpkins, then the loot bags, then the pinatas, then the sash. This so stupid. And that's only one item, you also need astral diamonds and other stuff. Come on.

    One of my toons opened over 300 bags and got the sash on the 39th pinata. My other character has opened nearly 350 bags and only got 30 pinatas, and not one sash and this is after the patch. I wouldn't be so discouraged if I didn't already have all the bristles, the broom handle, the astral diamonds AND the tokens. I have enough tokens for two broom mounts. Just no freakin' sash. I've since opened 30 more bags, and not a pinata in sight.:(

    EDIT: 450 bags, 56 pinatas later: SASH!

    Well, since the Enchanted Broomstick is new this year, it couldn't have been "always like that".

    People like to work towards quantifiable goals. Grinding rng will always be unsatisfying because all of your work just feels like it's pointless.
  • rubytruerubytrue Member Posts: 561 Arc User
    Well over 100 pinatas. No sash for me.
  • sandukutupusandukutupu Member Posts: 2,276 Arc User
    I don't know how many pinatas? I would guess no more than 20 got me the sash. I went to a private skirmish dismissed my pet. I was using only one character to run this event. I started playing on the 23rd and spent no longer than 3 hours per day in most cases much less. I focused on nabbing pumpkins until I had 5 charms then ran around to the illusionist getting the 5 bags. Next I waited until I had a few (3 or more) pinatas and jumped into a private area to open them. I am not doubting those stating 100 pinatas, but I could never see opening that many with a 2 minute cool down timer. That is over 3½ hours just standing there opening them. I really wasn't concerned about getting the broom as my characters own purple mounts. I went in to this with the idea I would save all drops until I got the broom or trade it all in on the companion and dye. There is still 8 days remaining and I am sure many will get the broom mount, others will just give up.

    My best wishes to all of you trying.

    TBH i'm not really worries about the sash. The 1000 tokens to upgrade the Mask artifact is probably gonna be what makes me rage-quit.

    What surprises me is that you lot are surprised that the event is a massive grindfest with a tiny drop rate.

    I mean, come on, what did you expect?

    I spent 30 minutes on this event right at the beginning and decided it wasn't for me. I am so happy I didn't waste my time on this. People really need to get back to doing what they enjoy in Neverwinter and stop chasing shadows or trying to grasp cold running water.

    Next Scene,

    Pumpkin King walked into his lab and raging and ranting, "come to my lab and see what on the slab" as he was telling young pumpkin disciple with short blue blanket, he saw a scarecrow, king said "now i have army to take over!", and he look at the window, saw a thousand scarecrows all lined up.

    "look! my Scarecrows, my army!, no blades can hurt and they dont bleed and no hammers to break, they have no bones, and they are fast and can overwhelm any defenders!" as king rambling along.

    "Soldiers! I have declare a war!, let march!" as they were expecting victory.

    hours later after the marching end and battle started, but Pumpkin King just ran away. "Inconceivable!", he paused, telling young disciple with blue blanket. "Fire! that what wipe out my army of scarecrows!"

    And soon, he went to his room, disciple heard the king crying.....

    end of scene.

    terrible drop rates still way too low, and my 2 alts got sash for few pinatas, but my main has all the stuffs needed to make and burn over 70 pinatas, but my 2 other alts dont have anything to make one. plus i have 2 more alts not had started, at this rate of tokens pulled from Illusionist Bag are too low to get it before festival ended.
    this is terrible joke on my main character and my alts got nowhere able to craft it.

    One is a quote from Frank'n'Furter from Rocky Horror Picture Show (the lab-slab stuff).

    Yeah, that's just the other fun part of the event... a character missing most of the mount parts gets the sash within a handfull of pinatas, and for characters with enough parts the bloody sash won't drop.

    It would help, if at least some of those mount parts would be changed from character bound to account bound.
    I mean, the mount itself will still be bound to character in the end.

  • ilmenirailmenira Member, NW M9 Playtest Posts: 269 Arc User
    no sash yet... but after reading your comments I didn't expect to get it anyway (~ 30 pinatas so far)
    this event is burdensome. no fun really.
    the special tricksters in 4 zones, turning and turning around and being thrown around makes me dizzy.
    very slow killing for treats... 15/50 after all weeklies.
    and I am not sure what the reward is about exactly, it's not a mask... it's not a transmute... it seems to be some 30 sec outfit effect... do we need it?
    i would very very much like to get the witches mask i currently wear for sweet kills as an armor transmute!

    bound to account on everything in this event would be VERY helpful indeed!!!
