Just buy $15.00 NCcoin a month and save them for events you want to participate in; imo.

I like that no bots can benefit from this type of event!!!! So many people on the forums are bashing NCSoft for events that benefit bots but now they have events that wont benefit bots and people are upset . . .
From one egg, you ahve around 1/7 chance to get a perfect box

From a perfect box, you have 30% chance to get a Crystal box. all others rewards are even hardest to get.

Have fun spending money for nothing

cool story bro, ull see now top clan forums flooding with char sales and bots lvling faster to buy nc coins. Either way NC benefits from this. Not us.

+1 to Fhurrhurr, rewards fro mevents should never be tradable. This shouldve been put long time ago to avoid mindless farming (full servers) from bots.

now that's the player's fault right there, they shouldn't buy adena! So it's the players that RMT that have caused this event to be an event for bots! NCSoft has banned many bots recently . . . RMT keeps the bots coming back, everyone that does that is to blame imo.

I am under the impression ncw doe snot give a crap what it's player base say's and is only trying to soak as much $$ as possible out of this game before it dies completely, and they are speeding it that way probably on purpose. as for those who think this is great because it's not a bot event. there are way better ways to deal with it then making ppl pay for the event. hmm maybe programs that kill bot programs and live gm's on all servers to ban the ones that get through?? its funny how some other games do not have "bot" problems but l2 does. and btw the bots sell adena for $$ what makes you think there not going to spend some of those $$ on coin to get event items to sell for more $$?? now tell me this dose not make an advantage for bot's?? BOTTOM LINE NCW DOES NOT CARE ANYMORE SO THERE'S NO POINT IN COMPLAINING ANYMORE. SO JUST PLAY THE GAME AND ENJOY WHILE IT LAST'S! as for those who actual put lots of money into game to be op'ed it doesn't make YOU any better of a player (actually worse player since you need god gear to win :-)) only a rich kid on a power trip :-)

What an irony all you range about the event 99% of you all ready are on ncstore buying coins right after your qq and thats why they keep adding this so called events and they never answer to your range.
Dont buy a single coin all you qqing aparently for 1 week and you will see next week event items will droping from mobs like las years.
Nah....dint think so you all dreaming for that blessed valakas

well.. other problem is with nccoins, every time i have to write ticket to them that i want to spent some money, someone from support read it, then make auto answer that "ah you need personal help, so i sent your ticket to other team", and close my ticket. i wait answer for 1week, later i check my ticket and no answers, just status changed - closed... pro support.
but anw there is a bright side of this event. no $$ for bots and farmers in xp spots.

Ok, my previous post in this forum were trolling post. I get sick of people always ranting about bots this and bots that and how every event is an event for bots no mater how the events are made. Even where players have to spend $ on NCcoins someone turns it into another event where only bots will get the best opportunity in the event. Geez . . .

For NCSoft, this is a fail event in the eyes of the players, imo, because the 1st Draco event was awesome! Everyone enjoyed it! E.V.E.R.Y.O.N.E.!!! People have been looking forward to the second Draco event ever since the last Draco event ended. There's been a lot of excitement and talk about the 2nd Draco event how much fun it will be . . .

Think of it as a young child hearing the icecream truck around the block! He hears the music and run homes and is excitedly shouting to his parents "The Ice-cream tuck is coming, The Ice-cream tuck is coming, The Ice-cream tuck is coming!!!!" His Mom gives him a dollar and walks out to the curb to wait on the Icecream truck. The child is jumping up and down with excitement! He selects an ice cream cone! He unwraps it! The Icecream truck pulls away from the curb, the child looks up at his Mom with a big joyous smile because he finally has his icecream, he accidentally tilts his icecream cone and the icecream falls in slow motion to the dusty sidewalk . . . that icecream is THIS Draco Event.

Much Ado About Nothing



I'll stop using NCcoins now. k thx bb

I was actually looking forward to grinding today and getting some cool event items, just for something different you know. W/e though.

I remember back in the day I useto enjoy seeing and participating in events, but now all these events are nc coin only events.

Kinda destroys one of the more fun opportunities of the game.

I hope they wise up and just put blessed earthworm rings, etc, in the shop for like $5000 nc coins, and change the events back to the way they once were.

Since I've came back to l2 the only events I've seen are nc coin only events.

Pretty lame.

I'm also a 100% legit player, and I count on ncsoft banning bots. I don't count on them making events absolutely unattainable for everyone just because there are so many bots.

Really sad day today for me. I was truly looking forward to a normal event, but I guess these events are the new "normal" unlike 2-3-4-5-6-7-8+ years ago..

W/e.

I know a player with "good ways of farm", they got +418.000 shiny gifts and got an antharas and valakas, no bottles .

I'm talking about "Syntesizer", he is a old ambereye archer hero, traded in black market and now a brazilian lineage 2 worker.

Firstly shame on you this was not a decision made by the korean team at all, this one is pure North America.

Secondly for all of you thinking bots will not benefit from this event your correct.
They will not spend a single dime on this game they use it to make money not spend it. So they will not be buying eggs they will be still farming there adena and selling it to you as usual.

Events like this were for the slim chance of your average player to get something, nothing amazing just something to have fun with.

You won't get the necklace or the rings, why would they give something like that away? noooo they rather you go get it yourself (hah yeah right)
or do without it like the other 99.9% of the people on the server.

But you might get a nice hat or some scrolls but at least it would be fun right? well by making it a payable "event" you took that away also.

I agree to keep the servers alive you need some income and i am sure you do well from fancy underwear and shiny weapons stones, but the only people you hurt from something like this is you average player not your bots or even your op gamers they will continue regardless.

39ncoins for 30eggs.
Laby posted a pic, 5258 shiny, idk how many eggs are, but just for 5250 ->eggs<- (not shiny) you would spend 6650ncoins (64$ +)
so i guess 5200+ shiny are around 15k eggs (19.500ncoins = 192$+)
for get nothing
