Soul Gem Bonus Weekend Feedback Thread

Hey Folks!

We just wrapped up our first soul gem bonus weekend / boon event, and I want to know what you all think!

Overall, 38 soul gems and 55k in bonus gold went out. I feel the gold bonus drops are about in the right place, but the gems seemed lower than I had expected. What did everyone else think?
Yeah? Well, you know, that's just like, your OPINION, man.

Some mobs I still had to kill 5+ times to see a drop, which was sad panda.

A lot of drops did seem fairly low from what I was seeing as well, but the gold wasn't bad. No complaints there.

One thing with tracking gold with the event (and holding those modifier rates values steady), is I can use the gold gained as a way to track general activity vs soul gem drops. Hopefully over time that will help us fine tune all of the rates to something that is a fair.

I was not terribly systematic but I didn't have any objections to the gem rates I saw; if I were ballparking it, I'd say I got a gem for every 2.5-3 mobs I killed. I didn't notice the gold that much, but I also wasn't focusing on it (and, like with the gold weekend, it sort of reminds me how few high level mobs actually generate much in the way of gold).

Re: Soul Gem Bonus Weekend Feedback Thread

I was thinking about boons and how to motivate people to get them. Since it's soul gem weekend, I think the reward might be appropriate if it was a gem (and some gold) instead of just gold. I found quite a few of the boons, but I think I only got one gem from killing the mobs to find those boons. A guaranteed gem if I found a boon would be better motivation for me (and hopefully others); the gold, on the other hand, was not a terribly significant part of my motivation. Hell, maybe even a gem of the mother, a gem of the elder brother, and a gem of the younger brother, since those might have some RP value to people who play religious characters. Although having a Rhian or Syrin soul gem is... weird. But still.

Re: Soul Gem Bonus Weekend Feedback Thread

I'd be good with a soul gem, how about it just be 'a unique soul gem', and keep it as a wildcard gem. There's no limit to how many of them you can turn in at a time, but the only way to get them is through boon turnins.
