    Thanks! The reason I was asking is because I prefer to do things on my own most of the time, but I guess I might have to make an exception for this event. lol

    I just ran Their Method in Tara on Hard, it can be solo'ed and I beat it with like ten minutes left on the clock still, pretty easy one.

    Didn't get any of the event stuff from the chest though so womp, Idk if I'm gonna continue with the event or not.

    You can only get 5 chisels max per day correct? Like there's no way to get more?

    Yup. You get ten the first day, but after that it's five per day.

    My mouth and hands say no for every 36 minutes but my mind says Yes for every 36 minutes. Hmm.. for conscience sake...

    Colored Star Pieces cannot be placed in the trade window or mailed.

    Conflict spam on hard tends to net a roughly 75% or better rate of having event drops

    so, let me get this straight...
    only up to 5 coins or broken pieces a day, which require one to run hm shadow missions or higher?
    if so, then I'm glad I can easily solo scc or their method

    If you guys are after the nimbus pet I highly advise just saving your coins and then using them towards the end of the event. That way you know which stars you need to get to complete the book. Then if you have any left over stars (and with this method you most definitely will) you can buy whatever else.

    I've only gotten 3 drops in roughly 18 runs..
    Do the drops scale with your level and difficulty choice, or just difficulty choice?
    I can just barely do adv scc alone at my current level :<

    You only get them in the reward chest at the end of the SM. Elite/Lord 100% drop, HM 60-75%? (based on my runs 3/5 - 3/4 chest drops). Not sure if it scales by cp, With my pattern, I would assume basic and adv SM are a waste of time.

    If difficulty determines the chance of a prize, this is a poorly made event catering to the very strong who could competently do hardmode and elite difficulty missions. This means the weak will have little to no chance to get any of the featured rewards. When we participate in an event, we expect to be rewarded when we achieve the given goal. When we aren't given any reward for our efforts, we, the players, feel discouraged. The prize being given is only consistent to those who are very strong, and the weaker people are left out.
    No reward, no incentive, no playing.

    Honestly I wish they had done this event like with the cat marbles, where monsters of an equal or higher level drop them. The way this whole thing is set up is ridiculous -__-

    Well, out of all 10 of my chisels I didn't get a star. This is going to be extremely difficult.

    No point in relying on RNG, just collect 70 coins for the next 14 days (5 per day, 12 days if you do all 10 today) and just trade in for your stars.

    well I did defeat the crag cow on hard mode 12 times and got a broken star piece 10 times out of 12 so that is not very bad. getting a star from using the chisel is completely random but I got yellow star, green star and violet star. so it looks like everyone should have a fairly high chance of completing at least half the book from just random chisel drops.

    That's a very good point I didn't consider, weaker and newer players don't stand much of a chance in this event. There only hope is to join in hard matches and stand back.

    Meh, junk rewards... I will only do this for Milky Way Nimbus, other than that is meh. That suit is ok if you prefer suits over the dresses for females. Now i'm wondering if that suit has any idle animation. Probably not.
