I spent a few hours on Lamannia last night running the new event. It really looks like a lot of fun!
Grindy, but fun. Also very pirate-y.
The initial accumulation of material is similar to the Mabar event: a big public instance full of targets that drop the loot you need to advance the event.
Once the event advances, you go into the Crystal Caves. I won’t spoil the inside for you but I will say that Turbine came up with an all-new kind of challenge that is nifty and fun and very different from anything else in DDO.
There are a LOT of items available. Lots. And they all require a lot of materials. One could build an epic Mabar event item in a few hours: I don’t see that happening with this event. I am guessing that most people will need to be in the event for several days (or maybe even weeks) if they set their sights on some of the higher level items.
But, if you have to grind something, hey, at least this is something fun 🙂
Nicely creative Turbine!
Now get back to work on update 9! 🙂 😀 🙂
