1) Did you enjoy the process of raising Rudolph?
No, im a summoner screwed my toon from being able to do it all the time. On top of the herb drops slowing my experience gaining for the entire time.

2) How often did you get the buffs of Rudolphina, or the Turkey's Big Mistake?
Never

3) Which reindeer buff did you want most?
Rudolphina

4) Did you like the way Santa gave out gifts?
Yes this is fine just like last year.

5) Did you like Santa's gifts?
Wish they came with the buff scrolls like the previous one.

6) How many gifts did Santa give you personally?
260 of these i used about 7 for raid boss killing on lowbies (4 toons to 40 through event^^)

7) What did you not like about this event, if anything?
~ After 260 gifts i really hoped id get the +12 weapon but i dont think there were a whole lot of these given out so Santas probably sitting on a pile of weapons for his Elfs to exp with....
~ Herb Drops slowed down my experience gaining such that i sat hitting an npc and went out and played gears of war2 and mario party as they were more fun that the grind+Selective drop pick up+no rudolph for my main.

I hated this event more then I hate the Australian Media, and that's a lot, because I'm from Adelaide.

It was a pain with all those fruit baskets.
I stopped trading in the presents cause the damage diff was not worth the trip to town.
Generally....I would hope that you would have Adena earning events so that there might be a chance for us poor people to get enough Adena to buy A/S weapons and Armour. I know everything points to botting or buying Adena but there are a few of us who actually like to earn their stuff the way the game was designed *snicker.

1) No.

2) Once / None

3) Something relevant to the class being played. Which was rarer than you would think.

4) No. Stand outside and watch everyone but you getting presents for standing around? Ugh.

5) So-so. Passive for the one handed swords was decent, passives for the daggers and two handed swords not so much. Liked the extra stats on the shirts. Should to add those to forts or something.

6) Too many. How am I supposed to turn them all in when Santa's giving them out right until you remove him?

7) Fruit Baskets. Why do you hate your players?

1:the baskets were a pain and so most the time i didn't lvl cause i got tired of waiting for the deer to eat them since i couldn't pick up items cause of the stupid baskets.
2:i didnt get either buffs which made me wanna just log out for the entire event.
3:the critical one
4:no should not have taken breaks
5:yes, though liked last years where u just went and got one from the guy and buffs too easy and it worked. also last year they were tradeable so people who didnt play alot i could give a gift to and they could enjoy the event.
6:total about 40
7: the baskets distrusted play, Santa should have given gifts that were trade able, there is some illusion that there was a +12 weapon suppose to be given at some point.... i dont think anyone got it. the reindeer buffed me with wrong buff 90% of time and never got the vit buff. maybe get an option of buff if not the vit replenish reindeer? I wish we got permanent accessories.

liked the shirts!!! ++++ shirts and +++ weapons make me happy. only3 deers a day???? lame specially when i got 3 wrong buffs. WANT MORE PERM ACCESSORIES IN GAME! that casket Halloween one where everyone got horns and masks!!!! i want those odds on accessories. not one pig hat in a million chance! not rider goggles-shadow i want cool stuff and to keep it to make my char look good!

It was a good event for lower level players ... I personally didn't participate so the fruit basket drops annoyed me but I m sure lowbies loved being able to use a +16 or whatever A weapon for a while.

1) Did you enjoy the process of raising Rudolph?
Not at all:
Firts of all my main is a summoner, so i got forced to play on my sub during this whole event
the scratch thingy was just plain annoying, atleast make the glow and not nose, since i didnt ever see the nose glow (unless i turned camera around ofc)

2) How often did you get the buffs of Rudolphina, or the Turkey's Big Mistake?
NEVER

3) Which reindeer buff did you want most?
Rudolphina, what else...
sure, other buffs made me kill faster, but whats the point anyway, cause i "have" to pick loot anyway

4) Did you like the way Santa gave out gifts?
To random, some ppl got tons, just by hitting a npc 24/7, while those actualy out grinding for a few hours prolly didnt get any

5) Did you like Santa's gifts?
What gifts would that be?
if u mean the ++ weapons it wasnt to bad, should have lasted longer tho, atleast 6 hours and guaranteed a +16 weapon

6) How many gifts did Santa give you personally?
30 maybe

7) What did you not like about this event, if anything?
Everything but the free +16 weapons

Default Re: Raising Rudolph Event Feedback

1) Did you enjoy the process of raising Rudolph?
i did, although there was an issue with having to wait 15 minutes to use the reindeer scratch skill after initially summoning, or being disconnected, even if the timer was past that point.

2) How often did you get the buffs of Rudolphina, or the Turkey's Big Mistake?
I had heard of one person not in clan getting the Turkey buff, and several of my friends got the rudolphina buff once. i have 7 reindeers waiting to be used, but no way to feed them, so 7 chances not to get this buff... i personally did not get this buff, even though i wanted it greatly.

3) Which reindeer buff did you want most?
I really wanted to get the Rudolphina buff, for looks, for the 4 bars of vitality, and the hour long vitality which would have helped me a bit.
even though i had not been efficiently leveling, i'm sure with this buff i could have finagled together a good xp group.

4) Did you like the way Santa gave out gifts?
i've always enjoyed this, although i found it strange that one day, 5 in an hour, and another day with 0 for the day... once i got one because i playfully attacked someone elses reindeer.

5) Did you like Santa's gifts?
i did, although tradeability would have been nice, the extra Shirts and SA weapons were quite good. go go +16 shirt +5 str, int, con, men +50 resist element... (just wish someone told me the poles had Vampiric Rage sooner than the last day of the Santa weapons)

6) How many gifts did Santa give you personally?
i received... close to 30 i guess, 15 AFK hitting, 15 Grinding(i didn't AFK hit too much... no jackpots though, i'm just not lucky in that way.

7) What did you not like about this event, if anything?
the herbs which dropped could not be picked up and interupted standard functionality for myself, and others... the herbs were required to get the rudolph buffs, so if you neglected to feed all of your rudolphs before herbs stopped, they became dead weight.
Also... 3 Rudolphs + Rudolph food + that event ticket thing...
took up way too much inventory space... inventory space is pretty important and i have 107 max, and was hitting it regularly during this event.
i feel bad for anyone who only had 80 max.

1) Did you enjoy the process of raising Rudolph?
Kinda. Fruit baskets were annoying ofc the character went to pick up them FIRST before the drops they could actually pick up and Rudolf was slow at picking them up, and as he got close to going to santa he gave up on picking them up. The baskets should have been made so chars just ignore them. It was also annoying to have to switch from inquisitor to pet rudolf.

2) How often did you get the buffs of Rudolphina, or the Turkey's Big Mistake?
NEVER. i saw ONCE someone with Rudolphina. Never saw or heard of anyone with the Turkey one.

3) Which reindeer buff did you want most?

The vit one OFC.

4) Did you like the way Santa gave out gifts?

Yes, tho he seemed to favor buffers/healers lol


5) Did you like Santa's gifts?

No. I don't want any xmas trees, and the shadow weapons (tho improved from last time when they didn't give any sa) were useless for S grade due to the lack of elements so even highly enchanted ones were useless. Plus NO ONE GOT THE +12 weapon. And at this point in the game it should have been a +12 S weapon, and multiple lower grade highly enchanted weapons given out as the jackpot.


6) How many gifts did Santa give you personally?

Between all my alts...maybe 40-50 or so?


7) What did you not like about this event, if anything?

Everything i've already stated. But mostly that no one has gotten the "jackpot" the weapons were useless if u had an elemented s grade weapon. Santa should have given out like real gifts, real armor/accessories/weapons of varying grades and enchants. The shadow weapons were fine....for levelling subs & alts. But not for mains.


Overall I said I liked the event. The buffs were nice, and so were the weapons for alts & subs. It also seemed to be one of the events that didn't necessarily favor those who play 24/7 as santa seemed to be competely random and event items were no trade no sell no drop.

Default Re: Raising Rudolph Event Feedback

yeah, i know, it's een more sad now...
however, i did like the rudolph joy buff...
i know it wasn't asked about, but i liked it a lot anyway.

and... i should say, since rudolphina was pretty much a write off for me anyway with my bad luck...
for the actual turtle buffs, i liked them in this order.

Donateloph Attack speed, P.attack, Vamp Rage...
Raphaeloph Crit rate, Crit damage (i melee a lot with swords)
Leonardolph Casting speed, M.attack (helps for drains and seals)
Michaelangeloph ... magic crit rate? meh, didn't nuke enough to be helpful.

i kinda forgot all about the Turky buff, never even crossed my mind...
what were its stats anyway? anything useful?

i woulda liked those prophecy scrolls again from last year, but the fact that they were dominating Oly was kinda a big deal.

1) Did you enjoy the process of raising Rudolph? Sure it wasn't difficult at all.

2) How often did you get the buffs of Rudolphina, or the Turkey's Big Mistake? 2 Rudolphinas, 0 Turkeys

3) Which reindeer buff did you want most? Vit buff obviously followed by fighter buff. I seemed to get mage buff atleast half the time which was essentially worthless for me.

4) Did you like the way Santa gave out gifts? Yes

5) Did you like Santa's gifts? Yes the shirts and event weapons really helped alot however I have yet to hear about someone who actually got a permanent gift. Also gifts should be tradable.

6) How many gifts did Santa give you personally? I guess around 40 total.

7) What did you not like about this event, if anything? Items should have been tradable, rare buffs should be more common, fighters get fighter buff, mages get mage buff.

No. Not that baskets, deer horns messing with my targetting, deer body blocking my movements, scratching, spamming the white chat. The only good thing about it was the deer didn't catch aggro.

Rudolphina was cute, though.

Default Re: Raising Rudolph Event Feedback

First I want to thanks all the Lineage 2 Staff for this event. I'll try to answer question the best I can


1) Did you enjoy the process of raising Rudolph?

Yes, but there was for me a small problem : the Affection Jauge is a good idea, but it's a bit annoying to wait 15minutes between each "Scratch". And It was impossible to scratch rudolph when you was in a transformed state (Inquisitor, Vanguard ...)

2) How often did you get the buffs of Rudolphina, or the Turkey's Big Mistake?

Never for those 2 buffs

3) Which reindeer buff did you want most?

Personally as healer, I really loved the Donateloph Buffs, but for others, less work for me because of the Vampiric Rage effect

4) Did you like the way Santa gave out gifts?

Sure.

5) Did you like Santa's gifts?

Yes. I leveled my subclass and only it with all thoses event weapons. It's really a good help for alt characters/subclasses, and even for high level characters (S Grade Pole +16 x3, AoE @ fog <3)


6) How many gifts did Santa give you personally?

Around 20

7) What did you not like about this event, if anything?

-All the white chat made by Rudolph. Ok it's cool at the beginning, but if you put 4 or more rudolphs in the same place, you should put white chat in an other tab ><
-Impossible to earn money with this event
-Summoners got played with this event.

No, didn't bother. The scrolls from last year were more useful.

2) How often did you get the buffs of Rudolphina, or the Turkey's Big Mistake?
0

3) Which reindeer buff did you want most?
If I were exping the vit one of course, but normally whichever was most suitable for my class.

4) Did you like the way Santa gave out gifts?
Bunch of people standing afk hitting npcs for hours on end hardly seems like what you intended.

5) Did you like Santa's gifts?
Shirts were nice, weapons without element are essentially useless though. A +12 a grade weapon is something that would have been impressive 3 years ago.

6) How many gifts did Santa give you personally?
8ish

7) What did you not like about this event, if anything?
The weapons being useless as mentioned above, the buffs were nice but I honestly couldn't be bothered with the reindeer. Shirts were ok, nice little boost. Being able to port in with the +16 weapons into olympiad probably wasn't intended, gave a pretty huge advantage to warcryers and OLs who are purely matk based, not that it really bothers me but was a little sloppy.

1) Not really, the idea is nice but it just didn't work in game, the baskets were probably one of the most annoying things ever.

2) Never got them

3) The vitality one (Rudolphina), and it would be nice if next time we could get fighter buffs for fighters and mage buffs for mages. I kept getting mage buffs over and over on my destroyer, other then added hp and run speed, they were mostly useless.

4) Didn't like it, I got 2 or 3 gifts on my SE that i would of liked to give to my BH instead.

5) Yes those were fine and fun.

6) Roughly 10 to 15 gifts.

7) Like I said before, the added "basket food" drops was really annoying.
