Remains to be seen, but at least on paper I kinda like what I see as far as this whole anniversary event thing goes. I'm sure between now and actual implementation I'll find something to laugh at though.

 

But for now, (if I'm reading this corrrectly), this event actual feels like an "event", and not just another cash grab.

Thank you for this! so much better than re-watching the awkward stream.

 

Just an FYI: Your title says Feb 14. I think you meant Jan 14.

It will be enjoyable for all, we are all going to get some pretty stuff, but if you want to get the gem and some oils, or just more than one of the better rewards, you are gona have to spam the hell out of the dungeons that give the coins from the dinamic quests, which happen to be the only 2 dungeons that you cant spam for free. And aslo ofc the bundles they are going to put up in the shop with the event coins. They always always make money out of events like this, which i dont mind and i get, we can all play for free if we want to!

It's a business and they have stockholders to answer to, not just gamers. I don't mind the cash shop and I have spent liberally in it.

Free Alice costume is great ! Just too bad only 1 per account, i hope we'll get it in f10 later

Rest is p2w event like usual, 35AP diamond is pointless for most of players already got it (and will definitely kill one crafting who only had that one diamond useful), and getting the 40/48 one include mass cs reset and cash shop bundles to get, classic NC

This event is completely f2p, you only need time. Well, even with resets you need the time. It only matters if you wanna spam cs hundreds of times on 1 character or run dungeons on different ones. The 40 ap gem is easily obtained with 1 character without any reset scrolls. No idea how you can complain about that.

A lot of good stuff with this update. Damn that unleashed pet is hella expensive, to bad the possibility of getting the ultimate pet is horrid.

The unleashed pet also gives 40% crit defense which is a nice bonus to PVP play.
