    Great event, but the whole thing is focused on 115 players. Every non-vanity drop is for level 115. Nothing else drops for all those players on the way to 115. The drop rate also seems to be changing as we go, probably due to complaints from the whales that control the economy.

    I think some of this is contributing to the rapidly declining number of players getting on from the beginning of the event until now. I would like to see the game focus more on players that are on their way to cap to encourage more players to stay with the game.

    I like the challenge of Gauntlet, and spawning the toyman boss at wave 20.

    It keeps the winter warfare vanity items hard to loot and exclusive. We need some vanity for this event to be rare.

    I don't agree that vanity items drop for level 115 alone, in the ESCORT Father Frost map, I have looted all the Gelid Vanity items on low levels under 115. You just need to make sure you have no luck items or luck elixirs to loot a vanity item.

    The vanity item on the loot table is between an elite and mythic item.
    Trash
    Common
    Uncommon
    Rare
    Epic
    Legendary
    Elite
    VANITY
    Mythical
    Arcane

    Knowing that mythic items do drop, you don't want any luck at all farming for vanity items, because if your orginal drop was a vanity and you rerolled, you will reroll your vanity into a higher loot on the table and loose the vanity.


    I mentioned the tactics to farm this map in the announcements thread.

    Map 2: The Winter GAUNTLET

    This map is where you loot The Winter Warfare Vanity Weapons and shield which complete the Frost Guardian set.

    It is best you use a level 115.
    Ensure you have one pro puller, after wave 16.
    This number 1 puller, can use different sets depending on what they have.
    Damage elixir of 4x damage (30mins) and Anti freeze elixir kit is required.

    The number 1 puller does all the work, pulling all the mobs in one ball, the rest of the team is support.

    The rest of the team stand in one corner of the map, helps after all the mobs are in a ball, only uses auto hit on the mobs, with a splash damage weapon (preferably Ebonthrax bow).
    As a support player ensure you run the same line as the main puller and only auto attack what snowmen they are shooting, if you miss or hit another snowman you will split the ball of snowmen up, and it becomes messy and harder to kill all the snowmen mobs and the timer of the wave might run out.

    DO NOT mess up the snowmen ball of mobs the number 1 puller has, pulled

    When wave 20 is reached, and the Toyman boss is the last mob left, switch to either Ebonthrax Dagger or Volta dagger to kill him more efficiently.

    Only the Toyman boss who spawns at wave 20 drops the vanity items.

    I like this idea.

    If you donít have the best of the best gear and a puller itís almost impossible to reach Wave 20.

    I think adding him on at Wave 10 but also keeping him at Wave 20 will help the less fortunate players.

    Adding him at 10 would make the vanities worthless.

    We did discuss this issue with Cinco.

    And Cinco explained that the drop lists are the same count whether it's orbs or kits once you get to 110.
    So the only way to remove xp orbs for levels 115, the change will require that we stop dropping orbs for 110+
    If the only way to fix dropping orbs for 115's is to stop dropping them for 110's I'll consider just leaving it.

    We don't want to hinder level 110 from dropping xp obs, considering this event especially for the Escort Father Frost map is the fastest way to cap to 115 as well as looting 115 mythics.

    It is best to leave the loot table as it is.
