    Ok, This sucks. Where's the good part out of it?
    I mean I pay 750CE, might get a key and? Get raped by skeletons?
    One of these levels make me earn enough to cover 750CE? It's unlikely.

    What the fuck, ThreeRings.

    These are going to be the new sets, only craftable through materials only obtainable in shadow lairs.







    Still, three rings made part of the game which I will never see..

    why would they do this, of course these are going to be 5 star armor so it will either be run it yourself for the mats or pay out the ass for them

    also i only ever went into t3 once, after having to whack away at a gremlin mender while getting swarmed by greavers for ten minutes i decided not to go back, still got out in one piece though

    Jesus christ, im never going to see these things or get that awesome barbarous thorn coat. So much for paying 750 ce just to get the MATERIALS (not even the recipe) to craft an item which costs 800 CE. So dumb, i was hoping to fight the curse vanaduke but nope, way too expensive.

    You have the materials but need the CE?

    As I expected shadow keys are hideously overpriced and completely ridiculous to get (all the auctions are up for no buyout, since the sellers want bidding wars).

    I don't think that a single dungeon is worth cracking a bunch of $2.50 crates over and over again. Especially since you only get to craft ONE of the armors, unless a guildie/friend gives you the other mat he got for some reason.

    i crafted a calibur the other day with ctr vh

    it sold for 920.001 crowns, after i shit myself i bought what accessories i wanted and i still have between 700-800k

    also is the facepuch guild active, the random one i am in seems to have gone dark, or im on when no one else is

    Edit: it was a brandish not a calibur, i havent made any caliburs for a while though i may start producing them again when i run out of mats for brandishes

    I crafted 2 Brandishes earlier with UV's, it's a shame that they both have high and very high damage towards Beasts.

    I've been in the Shadow Gloaming Wildwoods yesterday, a friend of a friend had a shadow key and somehow I got in that party.

    -The party in all it's glory.

    Note: Shadow lairs lags as hell. they lag worst then the laggiest moments from FSC or the twins, Stuff was flying offscreen, at the point that sometimes I was seeing one second every 3. And I usually have more than enough framerate.

    About the rewards: Not worth it. The rare 5* material didn't drop. Earned around 8k between the three levels.
    Spent around 1200CE in revives. Not kidding. 1200CE in revives.


    -The boss battle reward

    The "unknown passage" level got us all dead, and the resurrection cost was 1000CE.


    In all honesty, it's an energysink and it's not worth it. You can't have fun because of the lag, and you can't earn out of it because of it's difficulty.

    This is because it was a horrendously stupid idea and they should be thoroughly ashamed of themselves because of it.

    It's a shame that this game is dying so quickly.
    This game is a good game but they need to fix item levelling, see to it that you get enough crowns to buy around 200 CE per tier dungeon and overall not be greedy.

    when i sell things i put them up for one day, set buy price if it does not have a uv with a starting bid at what ever amount of crowns i used to craft and buy price around less what a npc would charge, if it does have a uv with a starting bid at double the craft price depending on the uv let a bidding war start on items with uvs, the buyer may not like it but in the end we all win

    if your wondering im the guy who alway has brandishes up for sale for 500 start and 2.5k buyout

    Nothing bad happens, unless you ask for money. The other way around, if something is not clear to you, or you need tips or hints, pretty much everyone will help you.

    I used to play this, then it started trying to be like tf2.

    The CE cost at lower levels, doing enough runs for crowns/mats just got tiring after a while, then they brought out appearance customisation.

    You know the one thing I wanted going into spiral knights? It was to look like the cool tall knights you see in the arcade, with their sword on their back.

    Azure guardian set and Leviathan blade.
    And now three rings made up their mind, you can buy shadow keys from NCPs, in order to access the new tier-3 exclusive content..

    My friend and I started playing this last night. He made his character name "Analsexman," but a mod changed it to "Fluffy-Bunny" after he started soliciting cybersex in Haven.

    ~Takes off his armor and readies his big boner~

    I'll probably cough up for the starter pack, or at least $2.50 for enough CE to enjoy the dungeons for a week or so. I really enjoyed what I got to play of this game. Too bad the daily Energy allotment is only good for an hour or so of dungeon-running, assuming you don't die or need any special services.

    Edited:

    If you buy an energy pack, do you still earn 100 energy per day? And does the energy you earn cap at a hundred, or if I go three days without playing, will I have earned 300 energy?

    Your Mist energy caps at 100 unfortunately, and you still get it if you bought CE.

    But, if I'm looking at this "trade" thing right, I could hop on and trade that 100 energy for Crowns, and then when I want that energy back, just buy more for about the same price? If so, that's pretty cool.

    The 100 rechargable energy amount is called Mist energy.
    You can't have more than 100 Mist energy at all.
    Mist Energy recharge itself, 1 every 15 minutes.

    The energy you buy with crowns or real money is called Crystal energy.
    Crystal energy price, as in a real value market, is determined by offers to buy and offers to sell.

    Still, you can buy energy, the "premium" user value, with in-game coins. It's something mmo games would never allow..

    Yup! Cool feature, for sure. I'm probably just gonna buy the $2.50 Energy bundle for now, so I can play around a bit longer to see if I dig the game enough to shell out for a starter pack or a battle pack.
