    We'll collect data as time goes by, and event duration is subject to change.

    I just want to point out that you have the Epi names mixed up. Given choices between the names "Energy & Mighty", the dark blue epi with 武 should be "Mighty" and the light blue epi with 氣 should be "Energy".

    You need to refine the weapon to +18. And just for clarification, you can upgrade a +17 seastorm to a glacial sapphire, then refine to +18. It will count as long as you actually refine the weapon to +18.

    Dear Ahri,
    As you mentioned here in this line, any account abusing the event will be banned.
    So, you made available the OP pack with Ancient Mirror inside and bound it to 1 per account. Okay, that's legit.
    What is not fine is that people don't need much effort to create 13123 accounts and buy the OP for each one of them.
    Isn't it abusing the event?
    In my point of view, you are teasing the players to create more accounts and buy the packs to make sure they get the weapon permanent. And let's say, it can be considered as abusing the event which is implicitly caused by you.

    Another thing, why didn't you released the notice at the same time as the event? People already spent Ancient Mirrors to try their FWD weapons and they could have tried to refine the new one. Well done RedFox.

    Tease more players to drop their wage here for a racing refining event. Not even the refinement rates are available to the community and you incentive players to spend to try to refine weapons to +18? This doesn't look ethically right. You are encouraging people to randomly refine weapons at an unknown rate? That's not right from your side.

    Who guarantees us that the refinement rates were not changed? What were the success rates before? What are the rates now? Sounds a bit strange to my ears... And if we are to compete for it, we need to know the exact rates. I guess you know what I mean.

    Looks like you are trying to do what other games are doing. Check this example.

    Good luck.

    For clarification, as long as the participant is not using any exploits, hacks, or third-party programs to participate in the event.

    This means that at any time, at any event, creating new account to benefit from the event goodies is not considered as abusing. Am I correct?
    (as far as I remember this was punishable in the past events)

    There is something that triggers me tho. Why don’t you add the Ancient Mirror to the item shop and make it purchasable unlimited times? I don’t see any difference between that and creating thousands of new account just to drop 20$. Can you please tell us why don’t you do this instead? Keep the same price and just remove the op pack, most of people are interested in the mirror anyways.
    You would benefit more if you made this possible. Anyway, just my opinion (and nothing different from what you are doing).

    P.S.: it would have been great that you could comment on the official refinement rates since there is an event towards that. Just throwing this to the air.

    Gm I wrote about how it's impossible to buy a United Spirit Tablet in Infinite Dungeon NPC store for 1million point to make "Liu Sha Rung" within 30 days on comrade level event.

    So I will say the same here for the 250k point to buy Ancient Weapon Exchange Ticket. The time needs to be extend longer or be permanent and give the reward to the 1st 3 player in each server. It will be more reasonable that way.

    So I will tell you a calculation of how much point you can obtain. Lets just say there is 4 weeks and 7 days are in 1 month which make 28 days.

    In 1 day you have only 5 free attempt. If you can complete all 50 floors you can only make 1000 infinite dungeon point in one run. So in total in 1 day, you can get 5000 in a day if completed all 50 floors. So in 7 days you make 35000 points. multiply that to 4 weeks it is only 140000 points total. if u just add 2-3 days to make it 30/31 day it will sum up to 150000 or 155000 points only.

    Ancient Weapon Exchange Ticket(250000 points) is needed to make a Dark Sapphire Willow weapon.

    United Spirit tablet(1000000 points) is needed to activate "Liu Sha Rung" for comrade

    i would say the same thing for Ultimate tablet(1000000) but you can get it from blue dragon box or white dragon box if you a cash player or buy cc.

    so it is impossible for those who start doing infinite dungeon at the start of this event or even late.

    yes there are people who have been doing infinite dungeon ahead of this before this event so they should have some infinite dungeon points already but as you can see 99% of the population of this game cannot complete all 50 floors till this day. Some didn't even care to do it. At best they should be able to buy an Ancient Weapon Exchange Ticket if they been doing infinite dungeon long enough.

    I know you said the "event duration is subject to change"

    Shouldn't it be for individual server?:confused:
    Yin population cant compete Tao in term of supply and demand. Meaning they have more people on so they can farm more materials faster than Yin

    potala epis have broken at least twice

    Idea is ok, but the Event itself is just for 0,5% of the Playerbase. And since you can create many Accounts and just Gift the OP Pack to yourself. This makes the Event just a joke.
    But thanks to All whales to Support the game!
    I cant even Farm that much ID point to buy a weapon, i am to New to even have a fwd or higher weap, so i wish all that can take that Chance good luck.
    Would like to See Events all can participate.
