Dada books need to be given out in much higher quantities

At the current rate of 10 per month, it would take 4 months to unlock an average node that costs 40 dada books. If the node costs 80, then that's 8 months. That could be an entire year of collecting dada books just to complete 2 nodes of SOS training. Absolutely unacceptable.

    Completely agree. Only 10 per month is so poor.

    Did i miss something but how are we getting 10 per month. No dada books for the last event and doesn't look like any for the next event.

    Maybe Community Days?

    Looks like we might get 5 for the brilliant events so that is where the 10 per month comes from. Sure hope they do something else to reward more. So disappointing they didn't reward any for the weekend event.

    It will take about 11 years and a half to get all the DADA books by rough calculation of getting 10 DADA books monthly.

    Please consider to give out DADA books too during CD to make it more interesting. For some trainers that has been playing fortress dedicatedly, already maximized their combat skills and mastered their profession. Do tell us what plan do you have for the overflowing red books in the future.

    Ok. 15 months of the BE for restrictive section books, is acceptable.

    But almost 11 years for DADA is very good!

    This is crazy!

    There are expensive skills in SoS tree to boost spell books from treasure trunks and wizarding challenges. But what is the point of that when there is no use for spell books right now!?

    Scrolls are even more useless. If only we could convert them into something useful.

    Seems like the team just added a lot of pointless **** in the game....where after the initial hype players may start questioning the point of any of it!

    Perhaps by the time people are able to get that skill there will be new combat lessons which require more red books and scrolls.

    We don't know all of the changes that are in store, but it's possible that what doesn't make sense right now will seem more reasonable down the road. Think of the big change to the registry in the spring. At the time it didn't make sense why it was worth all the trouble. Now that we have the new SOS lessons, the changes from the registry update make sense. It's entirely possible that some of the SOS skills will tie in with changes that are yet to come.

    This is pretty standard for how a lot of new features are introduced in games, not the least of which includes HPWU. For anyone out there who has ever played an MMO (Massive Multiplayer Online) such as World of Warcraft, this is a familiar experience. Devs release feature, players give feedback on feature/devs realize where loopholes etc exist, devs release changes/patches, cycle starts again. As Lion King's Mufasa would say "and so, we are all connected, in the great gaming circle of life." Okay maybe not but you get the idea. All I can say is, keep being vocal and maybe the changes we want to occur will happen!

    11 years for dada completion is assinine, it should be 12 months, then release new content and repeat

    Rather than complaining the 11 years thing. Perhaps what we should do is give feedback to dev about what added feature which is harry potter related that give a bit more DADA book, and maybe beside the inter trade between scroll-book thingy.

    I think its more interesting that way, it could also enrich gameplay.

    i care that they give us 30-60 dada books per event, everything else after the last year of features experience i consider it above their heads and improbable to happen, so I'll settle about having more rsbs and dadas given.

    scrolls were never the problem, red books were for those who had no group to play with until the Knight Bus came along, rsbs will be a chronic problem as -I'm afraid- DADA will be.

    If HPWU could sale chicket like POGO…

    Green books or DADA books come from challenge treasure trunk during the Community Day, I'm sure to buy the chicket with pleasure.

    That and ministry books for placed items are 4 irrespective of prestige page status. I got 4 for placing items on a bronze page, a silver page, and two gold. Highly imbalanced since you have to acquire vastly more traces. Either up the number based on page status or award based on a set number of won traces. Getting 4 for something that requires 8 wins and 4 for something that requires 55, isn’t equitable. And, what am I going to do with 6000 scrolls? Finally, dada books should be designated for only one area, either sos or combat, not both.

    dada books are only sos so far, its the rsbs that are for both, but what youre saying doesnt make much sense, altho with 6000 scrolls you can do all 3 professions' nodes.

  • DrakoniteDrakonite Posts: 1,315 ✭✭✭✭✭
    #2208 August, 2020, 10:33 am.

    and 6k isnt much, i have 22k with all 3 professions finished (other than 3 rsb nodes in professor) 😂

    28k here. I believe I was the first on this forum to point out the imbalance between scrolls and spell books. That was based on my time playing in beta. I remember being shot down in flames with people actually wanting scrolls.

    Maybe they should award a DADA book along with ministry books when you PLACE images on the DADA classroom page. Just a simple way to give DADA books where it makes some sense. Or maybe give a chance of getting a DADA book from returning traces from DADA classroom just like chance of getting books from non stream foundables.

    @WerewolfChaser i remember when you brought up the scrolls and red book inequities last year. Oh how the tables have changed!! 🤣🤣🤣🤣

    up until the knight bus red books were a nightmare for anyone who did not have access to a steady group. Scrolls imo never really were a problem, unless ofc 'you' (narrative not anyone personally here) played for '10' minutes a day. But for anyone who played systematically and for a time a day scrolls were never a problem. I don't think that in the same terms, for anyone playing for example '1-2 hrs a day' guides or manuals will be. But rsbs and dadas are, and I understand WB needs them to be a time gate but 11 years at 10 dada a month, and now 5.5 years with 20 a month are simply too little.

    It needs to be 12-16 months as are the rsbs and in 12-16 months it needs to have finished and they need to release new content that requires them (dadas/rsbs).

    Absolutely agree, @bryu.

    What they did here, is introduce yet another form of currency. We had the scrolls, the books, the rare books, the XP, the family XP (the latter ones to 'buy' your level or registry page images) and now a skill tree that will take years to complete. I figured: well, the events will take care of these new books, but at the second brilliant event it's clear this will take years and years to complete, if possible at all.

    If people start to think the goals of a game are unattainable, the developer of the game runs a serious risk of losing those players.

    #2812 August, 2020, 05:21 pm.

    Agree. Very frustrated by inability to get more when so many skills take 20 DADA books.

    I have suggested a few times that they allow various books to be traded for / bought with all the excess scrolls that cant be used anywhere

    It would be nice if they would let us exchange say 1000 scrolls for a DADA book.

    #3012 August, 2020, 08:30 pm.

    Agree! I suggested like 250 for spell and 500 for restricted. 1000 for DADA sounds perfect.

    You still have to play to make it happen so it makes sense
