Don´t like the friends bar... it will get more and more lag into the chat and into the servers.
Even with the 100 friends limit, it´s still a big lag.
Raise the number of eggs from the 1h jobs and human duels and remover the bar. It will help the ones that are active better than the ones that get 99% of the eggs from the bar and it won´t touch the nuggets usage.
So eggs are used only to reset timer?
How does it work, is it always 500 eggs? Does it reset timer to 0 or just reduces wait time?
Yes, they are only used to reset the times, and 500 eggs/25 nuggets always reduces the cooldown timer to 0:00.
Ok, and is it again level 50 for last item from Easter Showdown set?
All items can be equipped from level 1, I believe. Their bonuses scale to your level.
no, i mean wins in duels, is it 50 wins to get whole set?
I did some testing for you, here's what duel streak you require for each item. (everything on beta is subject to change)
Duel streak required
It looks pretty easy to get whole Easter Showdown set without nuggets use, since we can get more then 500 eggs for 2 hours of doing jobs, even if we don't have any friends.
On average day, 10h of jobbing is normal, that's 5 timer resets. So we can get 2x8h plus 5 resets, equals 7 wins per day. Minus let's say one loss per day, so 6 wins per day and there are more then 20 days for event (on beta).
Other 3 sets are as usual obtainable on market, so stanard thing.
Now as for usefullnes of sets, that remains to be seen.
Does it need a win streak or just 75 won duels?
Streak, without losing any. You can bribe the bandit if you do lose, and it will keep your winning streak going.
So wait, if I am at let's say 74 and lose 1 I go back to 0?
If you don't bribe the bandit, yeah
I can see a few drunken misclicks causing some problems!
I can see me having to reskill for duels during the event just to get the eastern showdown set
Bribing the bandit ... that can only be done with nuggets? Or can the eggs be used for that as well?
25 nuggets or 500 Eggs.
I logged in just to say that steampunk weapons look so cool! great job whoever made them!
i gotta ask, but how does the set bonus work? lets take cullen bakers set for example, with 2 items we get +0.1 aiming among the other bonus, but with 3 items the aiming bonus is not listed anymore, while at 4 items it is again +0.1 aiming. does that add up to +0.4 aiming at 6 items?
isn't that way to overpowered? i mean, the items alone give a nice amount of skills but the setbonus adds another +56 aiming/dodging and 12 of all attributes on my level 140 main character?
i hope i misunderstood lulumcnoobs post in the announcements and it works the other way
I hate the friends bar- and the way an event like this fill the chat with spam- and my reports with useless friendship requests. It was fine with valentines - but honestly not again.
I am going to need an easy way to get rid of all the requests when the event is over- and I guess I just have to keep the saloon closed during Easter - pretty sad.
I agree with Olga and Killado... I am not a fan of the friends bar egg gathering at all. This reminds me way too much of Farmville and the Zyga games that depended on that type of thing to tend the game all day long. It unfortunately gets very tedious and its not a good measure of true game participation, just going through the motions. I'd rather have to deal with a very long-winded round-the-map type of quest, which at least has a lot more direct game related application.
That all being said, I'll still end up trying, but having to win duels consistently in a row for the set items is a bummer, and I already screwed that part up a couple of times.
