That means farm Unity Wings/Bottom, exchange for gloves/Rose, farm Unity Wings/Bottom again etc. to get the whole set? :questionmark:

now that you mention it, last time i watched the QA you guys left out some big discussion points from the forum, take it as feedback.
i could watch the videos you linked but thats to easy. asong as there are no raids, skill mechanics or pvp stuff im not really interested.
i know you work on new quests, maps, equipment and so on.
suggestions, well id had some. i remembre there was a section on the forums were you can post event ideas. 99% of them are bad, unrealistic, useless, selfish and profit oriented but some, ilke flubsy's

Spoiler
are quite good. implement one of his ideas

Yes it was supposed to be this way. It was a last minute change, because we thought that the green coins should have also a usage for players who don't want to farm the [Event] Unity Set.

I just accidentally trade 2 [Event] Unity Boots... (yeah my fault, since I was talking w/ friends while trading...)

 

Whats the point makes the trading so confusing?

Why don't just put larger groin numbers for the items?

Is the purpose to trick people like this? makes people throw away their time and effort?

 

Now I have 1 useless item that can't be used for anything...

ARRGGHHHH... so frustrating...

Sure, we have nothing better to do than trick our players, especially you. We do that all the time :wall: <irony off>

Sorry for being that cynical, but if someone comes up with an attitude like yours they deserve an answer like this.

 

And yes as you already mentioned correctly it's your very own fault. Don't blame us for being distracted while exchanging stuff. 

Just farm a new one - or don't. Whatever you prefer to do.

 

And to answer your question, the point is: This is an event and we wanted to do something different from the usual "grind and trade a single object". We did something else this time.

Thank you for your "very kind" reply.

(Didn't expect this from the staff)

 

Sorry if my post sounded so irritating, but yes, I admit that I was very frustrating.

(Not everyone can spend a lot of time grinding...)

 

I meant, it's not a very nice "feature" if there is no real purpose other than makes people confuse then feel miserable.

(Really, people just want to have fun. Having fun is better than being tricked purposely, try something funner next time :) )

 

This event, in the end is still "Grind and trade a single object", it's the full set counted as one.

No real added value on this new confusing trade system.

 

May next time will be better.

I am sorry to hear that you dislike this event. The [Event] Unity Set was a very special set for a very special occasion the last time it was in the game. And back then it was not that easy to obtain. However this event stays until August, 10th.

Damn, farmed one stack of Gada Coins for nothing :(

Now I have 1 useless item that can't be used for anything...

ARRGGHHHH... so frustrating...

What I do when I trade in my Unity stuff for the other part is go on the forums and use that as a guide. The forum is much better as to what to trade in because it is in order.

 

[Event] Wings of Unity
10x Groin

[Event] Gloves of Unity
10x Groin, 1x [Event] Wings of Unity

[Event] Shoulders of Unity
1x [Event] Wings of Unity, 1x [Event] Gloves of Unity

 

[Event] Top of Unity
1x [Event] Gloves of Unity, 1x [Event] Shoulders of Unity

This is the first part. This whole first part revolves around the Unity Wing. You are going to have to get multiple Unity wings.

 

[Event] Bottom of Unity
10x Groin

[Event] Rose of Unity
10x Groin, 1x [Event] Bottom of Unity

[Event] Hood of Unity
1x [Event] Bottom of Unity, 1x [Event] Rose of Unity

 

[Event] Boots of Unity
1x [Event] Rose of Unity, 1x [Event] Hood of Unity

This is the second part. This second part revolves around the Unity Bottom. You are going to have to get Multiple bottoms to get this.

 

Bacon(Popcorn) is still human he is not a bot. He has emotions also. He probably just wanted to have a bit fun or maybe he was a bit frustrated that you want to throw the staff off for your own mistake. I farmed the Unity set with my fighter a long time ago it was just fine.....Something dealing with Magma Coral Field for people near level 49 or something I believe....It was terrible.....Farmed the whole set then quit afterwards.... :heh:

The event is great... Always good to have something in a while.

 

Thanks for the tips, I noted down the items as well during trading.

 

I'm not bashing the staff or anything... No ill intention intended.

I was only frustrated and wondering why the trade has to be confusing with zero tolerance (no way to return or replace the item upon mis-trade).

With around 3% drop rate of the Groins, 50 groins for boots, equal to around 1 hour grinding time.

Then the 1 hour just vanished because I was not good at multi-tasking #11

 

I've been playing Dragonica since the Beta Test in 2009 (with a long vacuum period in between, started again last week), grinding monster to find items/exp brings a lot nostalgic memories since there was no F7 in the past to level up "hella" quickly. Life changes and I don't have a lot of time to spend on game anymore, that's why I was annoyed when 1 hour of effort just vanished away.

 

My point was "the simpler the better", there is no real add-value in making things confusing (especially, this time the set cannot be traded/sold/returned).

Instead, it creates a trap hole that can irritate some people (like me, sorry).

Would be better (and less harm to the players) if, for example, some of the unity set pcs need Groins and Silver Coins/Gada Coins/whatever.

 

In the end people playing games to have fun, if we want to be miserable we'll go back to the real-life :P

(half-kidding)

 

 

Okay, I already farmed all of the set, now have fun every one and be careful not to make the same mistake like mine.

Thank you for the staff to keep this game going, was quite saddened when the servers shut down here and there, look forward to next updates.

Have a great day!

I think a solution to this problem would be that the set parts could at least be deposited at the account vault (I think this would even boost the account vault, which is on sale), so people who accidentaly bought the wrong parts can send them to their other characters. But the actual system ain't bad, just watch out the F1 presses and we are all fine (that ain't a problem to me at least, I need to press FN before pressing F1 lol).

I just heard a life story. 

They probably wanted to do that just to try something different. Try to add a little spice to the game. If the feedback is bad then probably they won't do it again.
