These two events are connected too and you have to complete them both all ten gems or whatever they are and the heroic mode to get the final unit.

05-28-2013, 09:37 PM
According to the FAQ on Gree's site and also posted here as a sticky they state you must be level 10 to play the events but as evidenced many times that is not always true. No crashes here just slow going.

Edit: iPad 3 user and no crashes.

I just had a person have the same problems. To fix it, he tried connecting with Wifi instead of his Cellphone service. He said he let it load up a bit and then clicked the button and it worked fine after that!
I would give this a try.

Have you managed to open the boxes? I've tried six times with gold. And always "Sorry better luck next time"... Previously I've got like every second with gold, so I should have opened one or two already.

I used gold to open spider box every hour and all were "Sorry better luck...". Upgraded to newest version. no luck so far :D.

one way to circumvent the crash is to go the quest via the map. check where the quest is and instead of hitting the button - go to maps and that will take you there! good luck

OK so I tried one last time before I went to bed and the quest worked! I just restarted the game and the box icon had appeared and I got a better luck next time message. Since then have managed to get plenty of boxes open, 5 gems and a load of gold and honour. Seems I open more than I get denied, all with gold.

Hope he crashing has been resolved for everyone now :)

Gambit i got the last one with the gold open option. ...i did a mix of gem opens and gold open options...i opened about 24 boxes to get my 10. .......I believe that opening boxes early in the event yeilds better results...it may not be the case but it seems that way!! i know people who have opened 40 boxes and still only have 6 or 7.

To answer your question yes its possible to get with a gold option. hope this helps

I got to 9/10 almost two days ago, after about 5/6 opened with nothing I started counting. I am either 34 or 35 boxes without a gem. I spend gold, no diamonds, each time. Is there some strategy? I've gotten plenty hero points.

Edit. I have a theory no matter how quickly you check it the percentages take that in. While the work week was occurring and I didn't try for 5-7 hours between boxes I had a great success rate. When the weekend hit and I started trying every hour I have not had a gem yet. Hmm...

Ed_Radley
06-01-2013, 10:18 PM
I've been lucky this time around. 9/10 now with only two fake prizes of gold, both between my most recent successful event opens. Haven't spent gems either, which hopefully I won't need.

Got my 10th gem right now by using the gold option also finished the LTQ quest so got all of them, the apprentice of azgor is pretty useful unit 20% more on raid buildings which I really need, so I tackled down the spider box and the LTQ in just for 4 days, I think is just luck on the box event.

I certainly don't hope so, It's not the issue if I can use my real money gems for this, but more the matter that the chances should be so that you get rewarded for trying every hour to find the gems. I try approx.17x a day,( every day since the event started.) with 3 days & 21 hours left, this means still 62x chance..

The last 1,5 day, I shall think about using gems to open the box & resetting the timer, but still... it still should be a partially free game and not a real money taking gambling game...

For the time being, I stay positive ;)

I agree the same thing happened in a quest passed, always the same problem the first to find them at once, the last one can never find it, until you start to use the gems then the chances go up, not a case.

06-02-2013, 03:45 AM
The positive side of this is that a member in my guild already found the nr. 10 gem already ..without using gems, my wife yesterday evening found also another gem, we received already so many honor, gold and " better luck next time" , but that they found both a gem, gives me hope that the nr.10 gem is out there!! hehehehe

I'm not even massively bothered by the 20% raid bonus, what pee's me off is the tying LTQ in with the Box event, although a nice idea in principle, all it really means is that gems are wasted in finishing the LTQ, because you still can't get the main prize (which you would usually get at ~7K just for finishing the LTQ) without spendnig unknown quantities of gems, as it can range from a couple of hundred to a couple of thousand on a box event depending on the mood GREE have at any given time when they are somewhat dubiously flicking %'s up and down in the back-end.

I maintain 2 profiles; my lower ranked one got the 10th gem on 3rd day. mostly gold hits with a few free mixed in. roughly 30 tries total
in my main profile took 4 days - all gold hits except was stuck so long on 9 that used one gem hit & wasted it on small honour payout. eventually got the 10th with a gold hit. not sure how many tries to get to 9 but it took 22 tries to get from 9 to 10

finished my box event yesterday , got so mad because i was in 9/10 for more than a day , so i clicked on free , first one was 1000honor and second the gem , i can say that they fixed the percentage to get the gems , because odds are higher now that they were Before , good luck everyone , btw best way to get so many boxes with least exp is to do the LTQ you gain 4 exp per hit and most of the kills grant you one box .

FYI - here's how it went for me:

1st day - used gems, got to 7 ebon gems easily. No matter what I did, would not give out any more.
2nd day - got to 9 with some difficulty, but no #10 - again, did not matter what I did.
3rd day - nothing
4th day - got the last ebon gem with GOLD, not with gems. Gems would not do anything except return gold/honor.

This has been repeated by several others beside myself.

They are supposed to be random, but everyone knows the drill. The first few are easy and it progressively harder to find the prizes. I've been at 7 on two games for two days now. I have 45 spider boxes in one game, 23 in the other. Which probably means 45 I have crap prizes in one game and...well you know how it is.

Gree really needs to rethink these box events. Most of the boxes I am attempting to open are opening, but they are giving me a little bit of cash or a few experience points. Nothing I would consider spending gems for. And since the odds of my getting an Ebon gem are less than 1 in 20 at this stage of the quest, I am not going to use gems to open boxes that 95% of the time they give me crap. Maybe if they gave some decent units out as boobie prizes I'd consider it.

One question I have is (not to be greedy) what happens if I add an 11th gem???

Nothing, Amigo. Never get 11th no matter how many more you open. But keep opening free - this will give you lot of gold and honors. BTW - also finished (today) with ZERO gems used ;)

I just got 8 and 9 today as well. 2 gems out of 5 gold tries! Not bad. Not bad at all. Now for the elusive 10th gem....

FYI - here's how it went for me:

1st day - used gems, got to 7 ebon gems easily. No matter what I did, would not give out any more.
2nd day - got to 9 with some difficulty, but no #10 - again, did not matter what I did.
3rd day - nothing
4th day - got the last ebon gem with GOLD, not with gems. Gems would not do anything except return gold/honor.

This has been repeated by several others beside myself.

This is me except for the fact that I have been stuck at 8 gems since the 2nd day I have been using gold the whole time. Any suggestions?

Good that there are lucky people, congratz for finding the 10th gem!

Meanwhile I'm stuck on 9 gems for 3 days already, I try opening the box every hour, only when I sleep I can't..so I miss 5 or 6 tries in a day!

Well..there is still some time left... :(

9/10 since 4 days ago and 68 boxes with gold since my last gem, still at 9/10...

Frustrating that we all keep trying & trying and find nothing! every hour again and again..
after 3~4 days most of us should at least find 1 gem, just only to keep more positive messages in the world..

Probably most of us ( including myself) are a bit addicted to the game, First I believed that I still could find a gem, but now I'm not so sure anymore..I just go on and with the little hope left.. I continue...
10 boxes to try today & 18x tomorrow...

What you need to be most disciplined about is NOT to use gems to reset timer/ open boxes unless you have lots of spare real world money. Sure, that missing gem could be in that very next box ... or maybe the 200th box from now, or the 500th box ... you get what I mean. Don't blow your gems on this kind of gamble. Its more worthwhile to use them in other events in the game where you can be assured of a reasonable return for your investment.

Torakiki73

What are the odds to find the 10th gem, with gold and gem options? Are they known? I'm in the same situation of many, stuck at 9 gems, since 4 days ago. Would like to know if it's worth to use gems, or if the chances are so low that it would be a waste.

Yes, you are correct, it's very tempting to use gems, but as you said...what are the chances you( we) find an "ebon gem"
I receive honor & gold prices in between, but honestly I don't care about that, ok I received approx.. 20K honor, but again.. 1 guild war and my honor unit is dead again ;)

Just received again 15K gold...but no Gem in sight.. now we're waiting and trying so long, I think most of us already have more peace with the fact the chance for the gem is almost not there... GREE(D) with their odds are very dissapointing... it's almost we're playing a real gambling game.

My opinion is that when GREE(D) combines 2 LTQ, that the required gems should stay on an acceptable level, but again we're tested and GREE(D) want to see how far we will go to win the main price.

Similar with the Guild wars, is someone really thought GREE didn't make enough profit, they should compare the numbers from before the Guild war introduction and the numbers of now, think their profit has doubled again...
Advantage for GREE, (we) KA addicts will pay and play as long as possible to get what we want, hehehehehe

Anyone know minimum level requirement for Dark Awakening by any chance?

It turns out the minimum level was 25 for this LTQ. I believe it is based upon the maps used in the LTQ - you must have all the relevant maps unlocked before the quest will start. So each LTQ will be different, depends on the maps used.

First ever box/LTQ tie-in that I have finished. Either didn't finish the box side, the LTQ on heroic side or some aspect thereof, but this time, got both done!

And all gold option openings, except twice mis-click on gem openings, which netted me 500 honor and 15,000 gold.

And from Thursday through yesterday, I opened near 40 boxes with the gold option before I got gem 9/10, and then today was 2 sorry's, some gold and gem 10/10.

Good luck to the rest still plugging away.

Not laughing at me! Got all 10 gems completely free!!

Sorry, only 85% of me is rubbing it in. The other 15% really wants everyone stuck on on 9/10 to get that final gem. Especially you Ratma. And maybe Midas, too.

I flatly refuse to use gems to open, or reset, as they're expensive, for what is clearly a luck event. I have completed a lot of the heroic event, but am deliberating finishng it, because, without the big prize, it's a lot of hard (-and expensive) work. I really hate box events, with an absolute loathing. I have never been successful with them and this pne is no different. Been stuck on nine for days. I'm not really sure why two events have to be run together either, but I guess Gree's bank has the answer to that one!

Not good enough Gree.

Merely stating my opinion here.

Torakiki73
06-05-2013, 04:31 AM
The chance to get the item (in this case the ebon gem) by opening the box should be "official" and shown in the event box, so that the players willing to use gems (and therefore real life money) know the kind of gamble they're investing their gems in. Of course it would be good to know the chance to open the box with rusty knife and gold options as well.
A spreadsheet with columns like this would be welcome:
- Number of items already obtained
- Rusty knife chance to open the box
- Gold chance to open the box
- Chance to get the item when the box opens (supposing it is the same for the three options, knife, gold and gems)

I guess the chance to get the 10th item from an open box is somewhere between 2% and 3%... or maybe it really depends on a secret "luck" stat given to players... If I had to calculate the % based on my experience it would be a flat 0% :)

Johan -
06-05-2013, 05:08 AM
time is ticking away and still nothing, even the the box fails more than before to open...
In "GREE chance" formula, they should also consider when players try to open the box every hour, for committed players who try every hour, their chance rate should go up..

For a gambling game only without consideration and chance rate below 2~3%, I just as well can play "Jackpot slots"

Been at 9 gems for 2 days now, opening every hour when I'm awake. I will not use gems on a box event, tried once and it was a huge waste. They should make the odds of getting the 10th better. I would burn through some gems if I knew I could get the big prize, I'm on 8 in hero mode. But that luck variable that sucks in the box event means my apple bucks aren't coming into this game. Because when it comes to Gree, I don't think luck is a part of the equation, just GREEd.

Is there something wrong or tips on getting the spider boxes to drop? I see most posts are complaining about getting gems from boxes, but I can't even get the boxes. Leveling three times and not getting one is weird to me.

Thats one thing i havent had a prob with this time i actually have to many boxes normally they drop while fighting creatures it can take a few kills to get them somtimes more than a few i got most of mine while doing ltq every kill i got one kinda lucky and when attacking players your basically stealing there box so if they dont have any you cant take them but that also is kinda random i would say cause when i battle ive taken like one box from one person sometimes two or three and when people attack me they seem to get lucky and ive had like one guy end up with 5 or 6 at the end of all his attacks

Thanks. Do you know of any limit on levels that could cause boxes not to drop? I have been killing monsters for more than a day without getting any and I really don't want level much more since I am still very weak. Does it have to be quest monsters or can I kill any monster on any map?

Darkwing907
06-05-2013, 08:09 AM
Its any monsters and for me ive had the prob your talking about when it was just one box event and not two tied together my option for getting boxes was to attack everything i could and it seems pretty random on there drop rate cause ive got them 2 in a row before and ive also had to kill like 20 monsters just for one to drop i would say keep trying but with 16 hours left in this ltq it almost seems pointless if your having that much trouble but theres always next time ive had one box quest where i could not get anything at all its very frustrating sometimes

I have a timer running so I can open them every hour for the last 2 days. No luck. If I could get a tenth gem I'd break out the gems and make a run for that big prize. But if I have to rely on the luck of a MF box event to win those gems are not going to be used. There's a few new tunes I can download instead. GREEd makes it too hard to get the prize in box events and I am never going to use gems on something that is based on pure luck when the odds are against you. Same reason I won't go to casinos, betting on a losing hand is just plain stupid.

Yes - I am going to do that. I, like others, was stuck on 9 gems and for the next 30+ boxes did not get the 10th gem.
So, I bought gems and used a bunch of them to reset the counter and open guaranteed. Well, after getting blown out with stupid Gold wins and no gems, I was taught a lesson.

I WILL NEVER, EVER, EVER buy another Gem on this game...and I will warn my Guild to do the same.

How stupid of Gree. If they would have allowed my a 10th Gem after buying and using gems, it would have trained my like a Pavlovian Dog to use and buy gems for such things. Now, I wil do the opposite....and warn others.

DO NOT BUY GEMS. DO NOT FALL FOR THE SCAM.

I was at 9/10 since day two, opened 102 boxes since ... (option 2 / coins) without ever getting the 10th gem. I even panicked towards the end and went 17 boxes using gems .... NOTHING.

Booo!!!

It's hard to stay motivated when the odds are stacked that much against you :)

I couldn't finish the herioc mode, got stuck on 11/15. Too many stupid axes and my hero weapon is just not good enough to finish a PVE without major loot. But at least I got the 20% bonus unit!! Finally I got something decent, lol.

I have returned my 91 unopened boxes to GREE. I know that one has my missing gem. Hopefully, the others are literally filled with large, black, hairy spiders; I hear the game developers are afraid of them ...

anyone trying to complete this in "overtime mode?" (if you don't close the game the box event still goes on)

I did for two boxes and got 1000 gold. Whoopie! It sounds like you can no longer get the big prize even if you find another gem. But I might be wrong.

I did the same thinking the gemming would open for me. A guild member also gemmed- 480 later received the prize. Definitely not worth $50 to me.

I am still very irritated with Gree. I went for over 5 days without finding a gem. I was opening on average 18-19 boxes a day. That was a LOT of gold invested with about 1 in 6 boxes having anything. And 5 days without a gem is robbery. :( :( never got my 10th gem and am losing interest in a game that sucks that much gold out if you without a reward. :(

Scam? yes. Rigged? yes. Gree has disappointed us all once more. I had 9 ebon gems the first day & a half, and then no gems for FIVE & a half days!! What does that tell you? The word "chance" is inappropriate when opening those boxes. :mad:
We all hate hackers, but when the game makers secretly designate only one 10th gem per 1000 players and don't tell us, then it's just a rigged lottery. Even if we had 10 more days to open boxes we would not find the 10th gem. It's more likely that from the beginning Gree had only 25-50 10th gems to give out and no more. So most of us were doomed from day two, when we had our max 9 gems.

Sirius, can we get some more information on what happened?

Why were myself and sooooo many others left short changed for 2-4 days with no 10th Ebon Gem? What happened there? Religiously opening a box every hour for days and nothing but Honor, Gold & Sorries.
