Wow this event is great!

Boss fight:

The mechanics of the fight is really cool. It took our group of Randoms an embarrassingly long amount of time to figure it out but once we did I think the fight went at a good pace.

The Drop from the boss going straight into your inventory did cause some confusion at first but I think it is better than it dropping on the ground.

The visuals and audio and design of the boss is absolutely impeccable. If this shows the direction for event and maybe… world bosses? Then this is a great direction to go in. I found myself saying “wow” outloud multiple times.

Cauldron in the cities:

This is really cool, the visuals are great and the rewards look good and the coins are nice. If the Rewards and prices don’t change it looks like there wont be much grinding. I killed the boss once and was able to unlock multiple skins.

I also like how there are more options when talking to the quest giver to learn more about the event/lore.

Overall I think the vent is designed very well and I wouldn’t change anything about it. Maybe more rewards but that’s it.

Good Job AGS

LOVING the event so far.

The boss battle is simple awesome. I love how it changes the environment, like the corrupted breaches.

The boss looks awesome, hits bars and require lots of people to kill it, like a good world boss should.

The animations, the voice lines (heard them in several languages too) it was just perfect.

Also love the Halloween decorations in taverns, inns and manors for the settlements.

After the much more calm and relaxing summer event, I love this for Halloween.

10/10 event!

Event is pretty fun and has some cool rewards! Boss fight is enjoyable without being brutally hard, especially in a larger group!

Rewards look nice, however the patterns need a slight revamp. Particularly the GS600 versions. Not being able to choose what attribute they craft for is undesirable. Ideally it could work similar to how the armors from the Medleyfare worked, where once you had the pattern you could could craft any of the options. I tested out the both the Greatsword and the Voidgauntlet - Greatsword crafts as Dex, where most people would probably prefer it with strength (tank builds / versatility) and the Voidgauntlet crafts as Intelligence - which would be better in Focus for healer builds.

Would love to see this implemeted into the live version! Aside from that, Kudos to AGS for a great looking event!

People have been asking for a world raid boss, and you delivered. The mechanics are fun and not too terribly hard to figure out, the whole boss theme is humorous, and the spawn clearly shows up on the map.

Being able to use the cauldrons as a hot tub is a bonus.

Love everything about the event, except how long it takes for a kill.

Something is wrong with the Aggro Targeting of the World Boss/Event Boss Monster. It keeps the aggro on the person it has until that said person dies, very weirldy. I didn’t wear any Carnelian, yet aggro stayed on me irrelevant, what I did.

May be a bug or intended.


The head sticks out of the Cauldron, unclear if intended or relevant enough to fix.


The Skins, prob also the Emote from the Event can be bought but not worn in the PTR. Some may want to test them, so this may be considered a bug.


The Cauldron looks amazing and the idea of a World Boss is sth many asked for a long time. I just find the Event Shop missing more stuff, but nonetheless cool things offerred and the 600GS shard will be wishingly seeked by many.

Vote to keep Baalphazu permanently. Thats all.

Love the event boss. I would like for the other mobs in the area to stop spawning when the fight starts. I feel like it ruins the vibe of the encounter.

Event was great. I think the event boss is the most fun thing I did on the PTR which is unfortunate. Maybe we can get some world bosses that are always around.

I think having a few more items in the store would be great. Maybe a super expensive armor skin for those of us that like to grind for an accomplishment.

I want to fight that sandworm in Brimstone

I have only one thing to say, I love the whole event! :grinning:

Linking this here.

It honestly feels like the people deciding the perk roll odds for Life Staffs have ABSOUTELY NO CLUE what should go on a Life Staff. More likely, they are just lazy and decided to just make the odds for perks the same on all weapons.

I mean, come on. Seriously?

Every healer I know will not touch a Life Staff without Blessed. Most want both Blessed and Refreshing Move.

I would like to see Blessed incorporated in the base healing calculations and the perk removed. That would finally give healer some flexibility in picking other perks. As long as Blessed is available, it’s required.

Isn’t it random what you get? Keen Speed should be there always. The other 2 are random or am i wrong rn?

Yes it is Random what you get. So you got unlucky. So to answer your Question.
