    The Dev team would likely need to be on call over the weekend if they released it Friday, in the event things broke or weren't working like attended. If this was another round in Deceit I could see them doing it Friday, but since it sounds like it will be in a new location (Tokuno) and it hasn't hit TC1 (assuming that) it's more likely Monday/Tuesday of it being worldwide.

    It's possible they might also drop it into the live Prod testing shards like Origin for the weekend to see how it goes.

    We are working through QA - should be hitting TC1 later this week.

    I see no issue with that.

    @Kyronix, thank you!!!

    Thank you for the update.

    Please test it a lot before the release, Id rather wait a week extra for bug-free content.
    Can just let it run one more week at the end or smth.

    3rd party client bot farmers are frothing at the mouth for the paycheck because you guys refuse to make this stuff account bound. Well done!

    Exactly.  Glad you ignore the one person that wants account bound rewards.

    Grimms barely spawn, and when they do they rarely have pumpkins on the corpse...but we all know that within 24 hrs of this event starting there will be a thread here with every item that's available..and vendors will be full of them on Atl, but don't worry, it'll be 'working as intended'.
    You and Several Others like this.


    Please make the Grizzled Mare a 5 slot mount, it's incredibly rare and deserves it. Some of us have been waiting a long time for this simple addition.

    It's all about the RNG...don't know how many times I have to say that.


    This isn't even HALF of the pumpkins I have gotten on Origin. All the small, round ones are being used for another project but I have gotten about 25-30 of those. Had full set of the new pumpkins within 4 days?

    So it all depends on Character, Shard, time doing it.....some runs I might get 2 or 3 pumpkins, then later on that day I'll get 8 or 9.

    I don't have the playtime you obviously have. The numbers I listed for kits I received were based on those log ins only. I"m sure if I logged in farmed these for 4 days, I would probably have what I need, but life and a job prevent me from that luxury, I don't know how many times I have to say that.

    I do one run first thing in the morning...then not again until later in the day.

    I also have a life, I guess I'm just lucky.

    Think spawn grate for Grimms has always been slow and if you have a lot of players out there looking for them they can be hard to find.  Have no complaints on my shard.  Not that many looking for them when I play, and Grimms not that hard to kill.  Have a rune book with cemetaries and pumpkin field areas.  Just go through the book once or maybe twice a night.

    What will the window be to give feedback on event/rewards on TC1?

    I think it makes sense to deploy to TC1 first for feedback but with the timeframe of releasing worldwide "around the 15th" which is Sunday (more likely Monday) that doesn't seem like it gives more than a day or two for actual testing.

    I know that spawn area (ie things spawn out of reach) and spawn rate have been reoccurring themes for each ToT event that need to be tweaked.

    It's a short turn-around.  We are on a tight schedule trying to bring the events live in time for their respective holidays.  The event will sit on TC1 over the weekend, after that we are looking to get WW pretty quickly.

    Yeah, i do about one run a day maybe (depends on if my Mother is having a good or bad day) I have lots of pumpkins but not enough kits. I'm hoping next week when things aren't as busy at work i can throw an extra run on butchers in to get a couple more. if anyone wants to donate to the "Vic hates the RNG" fund, you can drop kits in my luna or Termur mailboxes.

    You may be able to get some quick feedback before this event shows up on TC1, if there is a tight schedule.  Likely things that will trigger user feedback:
    1. What are the rewards?  What are the stats on the rewards, and what are the point costs for the rewards?
    2. What is the rate of spawn?  (faster / more spawn is commonly mentioned request).
    3. What are the monsters?  What monsters can spawn as paragons?
    4. Where is the event located?  If it's tokuno, is this the entire tokuno map, or something else?
    Thank you!

    Go to test center and answer those questions.  Thanks

    Looks like there might be a paroxy style ozy available as a reward?? I think the damage taken appeared to be less while riding it than on foot... not sure if it's the same damage protection as a paroxy though.

    Certainly some interesting rewards this go round. The team listened quite a bit to people's suggestions (30% splintering imbuable bok).

    @Kyronix - Can we PLEASE make the Sentinal's Necklace (Garg) a stone amulet?? The human version mempo is studded which makes it +3 LMC... the garg version should get the same treatment. Gargs were already penalized last event when the bone gloves were made a cloth kilt (instead of stone) for Gargs. It should be the same thing Kilt of Holy Warrior... the human version gloves are plate (+1 LMC) while the cloth kilt (again) is no inherent LMC. Please stop slighting the Garg race... we already get 1 less armor slot.

    Same thing with the Kabuto head gear. Cool thing to transmog... Gargs do not benefit from it though. I'd love to see the Gargs actually get the same treatment.

    @Pawain

     Is it a paroxy copy like the Ostard from the other Event was ?

    That is, same stats as the Ostard but not really the same stats as the Paroxy (close, but not the same...) ?

    Basically, will it be a photocopy of the Ostard from the other Event just with a different look, or is there going to be different in something ?
