    I had fun during the entire event, which is pretty rare at least for consistent stretches inbetween patches :)

    Bite me.

    Well, I guess the same fun than before the "special" event and after it, cause you just ran the classic world boss train that has been there always.

  • Got nothing but trash. I actually played less then I normally would have because the boss fights where just far to over crowded. Not even really a problem with the kitten drops as much as the event just was not any fun at all.

    Well, in this thread alone, 2 people claim they got drops. Gemnaid.4219 and Musetti.7163. I don't think 100,000 people religiously follow the forums, but I could be wrong? Also for those two that got the drops, how many bosses did you kill? (The achievement will tell you.)

    @Gemnaid.4219 said:
    I’m the only one that got an infusion drop.

    @Musetii.7163 said:
    I only did tequatl but got an infusion...guess I'm just lucky.

    Of course.. we have to take their claim on face value...

    Life is what YOU make it... NOT what others tell you!

  • I only did around 80 and got one exotic (twin blades?), my friends had over 170 each and they got nothing too. A currency system for hard work would have been better.

    Except that it had multiple full maps and countless people actually talking to each other and coordinating.

    What new exotic pistol? I have not discovered any new skins at the TP.

    Sorry for the misunderstanding, a new one for me :)

    Perhaps, he/she meant 'new' to them.
    I got a couple of exotic weapons with a skin I had not unlocked before.
    Also, a couple of Charms from salvaging Rare armor.
    I did about 20? WBs, if that many...so far.

    Edit: Ahh, was explained above.

    If they run events with random (and ultra rare) rewards that are the only special and valuable items among a long list of common, everyday trash, the % of people participating in them that will have a negative perception of such event will be equal to the % of people that didn't get any of the ultrarare special reward.

    Special events should have special rewards based on participation, not on luck.

    They should have both, but they deff shouldnt have ultra rare and expensive rewards tied to participation, unless the participation requirement are very very demanding at least.

  • Ashantara.8731Ashantara.8731 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Welp, so far no luck. However, since I have only done four rotations during the whole week, I don't feel cheated (like those who have grinded their hearts out). At least some of the boss fights are fun to participate in, so it's okay.

    I agree that, when it comes to those new chests, participation in the event does feel unrewarding.

  • Teratus.2859Teratus.2859 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Nope but I wasn't honestly expecting to..
    I have bad luck with RNG in general so I learn not to expect much from it.
    That said I did get a lvl 80 exotic staff with choice of stats and lots of ecto from all the rares salvaged so it wasn't a bad week ^^

  • Vrita.7846Vrita.7846 Member ✭✭✭

    Opened a stack of boxes, got nothing of value. So glad I wasted my time with this trash.

  • Hot Boy.7138Hot Boy.7138 Member ✭✭✭

    i didn't get anything, and i haven't heard of anyone getting any of the rare infusions that could drop. big waste of time and big let down.

    I didn't do it. Was not much motivated, and after hearing from guildies that they got nothing interesting, it kept me definitively away from it. The lack of interesting rewards seem to be a quite common feedback.

  • Nothing from the new event boxes, but can not say I've done too much, maybe only an hour every day. An EbonMane's box dropped from Teq, so there is that.

  • Eekasqueak.7850Eekasqueak.7850 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Rarest thing I got was one of the filtration device helmets.

  • Naw. I didn’t do this event. I previewed the loot table and saw it was matts in the first section and infusions in the bottom section. I knew that the infusion drop rate would be “lol. You’re dreaming if you think you’ll get one” which meant it was only mats. Said to myself, ‘thanks but no thanks’ and did other things instead.

    Be careful what you ask for
    ANet might give it to you.

    Bloke in my map received the chakk infusion after 50 odd boxes. He was just back to the game after a long time away, 5k ap. What a welcome back!

  • Gop.8713Gop.8713 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Nothing for me. I only had 45 boxes bc I quit after Thursday so I could get this week's wvw pips out of the way before the new ep comes tomorrow :)

    Even my 45 unid rares didn't give me a single exotic :(

    I did get two new skins from the regular boss loot, only worth around one gold apiece but I like new skins so I'll take it . . .

  • was event broken I got nothing worth mentioning

  • Turkeyspit.3965Turkeyspit.3965 Member ✭✭✭✭

    My interest in this event waned after about 5th or 6th boss kill. Sure if I hadn't killed them before or had all the achievements, yay and all, but as I do, it really wasn't worth the time.

    But if this did expose new players to world bosses, something they might never have seen before because they don't know about the event timer, or weren't on the map at the right time, then I guess overall it's a good thing.

  • Etria.3642Etria.3642 Member ✭✭✭✭

    I tell you what though, the price of rare unidentified has plummeted. Why on earth people aren't opening them is beyond me.

  • aspirine.6852aspirine.6852 Member ✭✭✭✭

    So it looks like it is over.

  • Did anyone actually get anything good? A pre or maybe an infusion? Sound off if you did, cause I didn't lol.

  • Even my 45 unid rares didn't give me a single exotic

    The drop rate of exotics from unID rare is about 1-2%. Even if the rate was 3%, the chance of getting 0 exotics from "only" 45 would be over 25%

  • I got some good conversation and camaraderie.
    I laughed, I cried, it was life changing.
    wait.... you mean anything from the bonus boxes.
    Yeah total bust, except for the fun convos.

  • fill.3106fill.3106 Member ✭✭

    Did some world bosses and all i got from the extra loot box was just silver ore. Oh wells, it made the WB train popular for a minute.

  • Ok I Did It.2854Ok I Did It.2854 Member ✭✭✭

    No one from the 400+ member guild im in got anything rare, makes you wonder if anyone actually got anything from this event, and Anet just did this as a way to make people do world bosses again, im glad i didn't waste to much time with this event personally.

    Don't say what you mean, it will get you in trouble.

  • @Ok I Did It.2854 said:

    How many bonus boxes does that represent? 400? 800? 1000? With numbers "that small," I wouldn't expect any super rares. Based on other containers, the chance is probably much less than 1:10 000, perhaps even as low as 1:100 000.

    For what it's worth, if everyone in your guild managed 4 bosses per day (an hour) for the 7 days of the event, that would be 11.2k boxes.

    • If the true rate is 1:10k, there's a 67% chance that you'd see 1 or more super rares ("around 1" is average)
    • If the true rate was 1:100k, there's a 10.5% chance of seeing at least one super rare.

    And I'd imagine that most guild members didn't get to that many events.

    makes you wonder if anyone actually got anything from this event,

    Some people did. Just not that many.

    im glad i didn't waste to much time with this event personally.

    I managed 10 bosses, which is 11 more than I managed from October 2018 through April 2019.

    I actually wonder if the boxes may be bugged.

    This was a good event, but not great for rewards. But it was a good time to complete Boss achievements points and a good chance to receive ectoplasm.

    PvP games were 10x more fun without all the PvE scrubs ruining it. I don't think anyone AFKed in those matches I played this entire week. Could have been more free to play PvPers didn't show up playing core classes only and tanking matches.

    I think a simple way to improve the reward system for this event would be to give 1 free ectoplasm for each boss completion instead of 1 free rare unidentifed item.

    Even though most rare items are salvaged into ectoplasm anyway, it would cause people to feel more rewarded for the time invested.

    As far as the super rare category, after seeing a similar box for the fortune new year 2019 black lion chest, opened 60 chests with keys and only receiving the air breather rare item, I knew to not invest a whole lot of time into this boss event.

    For me personally, I had fun, but only completed 20 bosses across the entire week. So I don't have that feeling of regret that most players may be feeling. Just be happy it was time invested instead of time and money in those super rare Fortune black lion chests/keys.

  • You're losing more from a single ecto compared to rare item which has a small chance for an exotic. The problem is written in my previous post.

    All I got was a few T6 mats and an exotic hammer that glows purple when drawn.

    The only reason I'm even getting these boxes is cuz of Tequatl farming. I just need ascended equips, if I get those, I'm happy.

    I got Rodgort's Flame from an UnID bag, though I can't say for certain if it was a bag I got from doing world bosses or if it was from something else over the weekend.

  • Glider.5792Glider.5792 Member ✭✭✭

    "Some people did get a drop"
    Is there like, any proof at all? I have only seen words, and 0 actual confirmation of a drop.

    Yeah, mf nerf really cost us. Sry if you misunderstood that to mean I expected an exotic. I was only answering the OP's question as to whether we got anything from the event. To which my answer was no. Then my even more complete answer was that I didn't get anything from the '2nd chance' loot of the guaranteed unid rares. Then my even more complete answer was that I did get two new skins from the regular boss loots :)

    Of course not, it's RNG based. RNG is the real end boss of the game, and unbeatable.

    I was hoping to set expectations for the community about what they'd likely get from a few dozen rare unID boxes. There's a lot of confusion about it.

    I play the game since 2013 - 14 and got one Dusk from Silverwastes. That's it. Mostly drops are trash. Rewards-wise this game hits rock bottom. Most other games are truly rewarding.

  • Emberstone.2904Emberstone.2904 Member ✭✭✭

    Not sure how many bosses I did, but I played them for hours and got jack. It kind of sucks that the event was a waste of time for nearly all of us. Even the gold per hour was terrible because the boxes were really only worth a few silver a piece, and took 15 minutes to earn.

    Should've just stayed in the Silverwastes. I would've been better off.
