    She also sells Keys to the Realm, a special Pet recipe, and "Hollows" currency packs.
    Esmi will give you some background on the Dark Hollow Settlers' event if you ask.

    Individual Tier Event
    The "Dark Hollow Saga" is an individual tier event with Bronze, Silver and Gold Tier Rewards!
    This is not a competitive Leaderboard Event. There are no special rewards for Top Ranked Players.
    Earn a Victory Tier to collect special prizes from Esmi when the event ends.
    Collect 10K points to unlock Bronze Tier
    Earn 30K points for Silver Tier
    50K points for Gold Tier

    Scenario Score
    Points are awarded after successful completion of either the 'escort' or 'defense' scenarios.
    Both scenarios have the same number of enemies and offer the same maximum number of possible event points per run:
    Escort
    50 points for getting Esmi past each of her three (3) encounters (for a total of 150 points).
    50 additional points for defeating "Amok the Armored Troll."
    Defense
    50 points for each building that surives to the end (for a total 150 points).
    50 additional points for defeating the "Wytch of the Wood."

    Crafting the 'Evolved Log'
    Get "My Barky" from Esmi just for the fun of it... or craft him into a power-pet!
    Name:  pl_dark_hollow_crafting_barky.jpg

Size:  78.5 KB
    To give "Barky" a stat boost...
    Purchase "My Barky" from Esmi for tokens.
    Use "My Barky" in combination with looted crafting components and recipes to craft trade-friendly "Barky" (with Esmi's help).
    Then you can use trade-friendly "Barky," more looted components and recipes to craft one of three (3) evolved companions:
    Hard Barky
    Name:  pl_dark_hollow_crafting_barky_02.jpg

    Wild Barky

    Greedy Lord Barksdale
    Name:  pl_dark_hollow_crafting_barky_04.jpg
Views: 2562
Size:  21.0 KB

    Dark Hollow Event Tokens
    You will earn tokens for completing either of the event scenarios.
    They are listed as "Hollows" in your satchel.
    Esmi sells most items for Hollows, and a few for Platinum.

    How to Play
    Use the "Let's Play" option when talking to Esmi to bring up the 'Legendary Events' campaign category of your World Map.

    Why exactly? We should not bring back event/quest items from old campaigns. It achieves nothing but alienating a divided community while also tanking the prices for those rare items, which will eventually become worthless since they serve no purpose in either PvE or PvP.

    ESB is currently 21 less damage than Phantom crossbow, which makes the situation even worse once you consider the fact that Phantom set is low tier trash in the current meta. EWT is far weaker than Sea Devil and Sharp staff so releasing this item again serves no purpose. Even if we make the argument that the proc is very usefull for its bonus armor, it still doesn't matter since you will not be using it to PvP with as your main item. Dont even get me started on Marlin. Beastly Longsword has always been superior than it and thats a whole troll item that you would use just for fun.

    Instead how about StS make a permanent dungeon in blacksmoke that has a new elite 1H item selection, balanced around the other 71 items so it's not oppressive like QTRs and Haunted gear. This is a better solution as it brings more content and activity to both PvP and PvE in the blacksmoke region. Elite Humania weapons and 71 Quest weapons can stay as a flex item that people can showoff with, or work their way towards buying later down the lines.

    A gauntlet would bea great alternative, with a requirement that you must be 71 to enter and loot these items. Higher rounds have better chances to loot, and since its a 71 exclusive zone it'll be much more of a grind instead of being a 115, one shotting everything. Thats my 2 cents.

    Thank you Futumsh and STS for this event.

    I love the recolours and the reintroduction of the barky pet which is essential for gauntlet events , considering its the strongest pet that works in those event zones.

    Keep up the events on game, some might not appreciate it. But I thoroughly enjoy all events on game.

    Much love

    Agreed, bringing back items like this serves no purpose.
    And before someone tries to say something no I don't own any of these.

    yes it makes no sense to bring back these items. instead of bringing stuff back, make new items that could shake up and balance 71 pvp or new vanities. even recolors are better than bringing back old items just for the hell of it.

    Thanks for event barky is BACK <3

    Sts and team, please bring back :
    1. Bring back L100 Honor Game to Endgame Level (115), cause myth game only 1-2 shoot then Die GG
    2. Bring back boot option to PvP, I've heard that not having the boot option in pvp resulted in a person being judged 3v1 in a pvp room by an active guild (and this is very sad)
    3. Can you create a new Honor Map 2v2, i think this will be good at pvp zone because little community at pvp right now

    Thank you…

    Always asking to bring those items back, and wanting to make the leaderboard events to be top 100. Haven't you seen any pattern on the posts? You shouldn't be suprised if 'he' got another forum account lol

    That sounds like a wonderful idea considering it is the most powerful set up depending on your playing style, as well as the dragkin shield (which was looted from warlock crates). Recolours of those vital set with a slight increase in stats would be amazing for this year's Halloween event.
