Can I assume raids will continue until store close/event end time on Tuesday?

Only if you want to be disappointed when they end tomorrow at 1600.

The newsflash that was sent out stated that the event would run until the eighth. Some of us had items we were working on figuring we still had today to do it but now it appears that the raids have ended . That seems kind of hinky to me . What's going on .

I'm not in Venan's favor, but killings always end one before the store and the whole event ends. I do agree it was not clearly said in the news when each part of the event was reaching its end.

Raids always end 24 hours before store closes. Standard procedure and posted somewhere.

Shouldn't the store close a day after the raids end?

The post states the end time of the event, not the last spawn. The store and the event will end on this date. We leave the store open for 24 hours after the last raid has finished. We will post more detail times as the event unfolds.

Two things. First, maybe a bit of scaling and I'd suggest changing to ph 1 reg mobs, ph 2 os mobs and ph 3 os boss. This would be of greater benefit to new and smaller toons. Obviously would affect the Dracula feat, but that can be tweaked. Personally I thought the raid spawn rates were just fine. Some have complained but you'll always get that
Second, the only drama was about the newsfeed of event and store closing at same time. I naturally assumed the raids ended 24 hours earlier, but I've played awhile. The newer players will have no clue about the normal course of things. And the wimpy response of "it was in the forums".... not everyone visits or even knows of the forums. I think an addendum to the newsfeed would have solved all issues. A minor thing, something to live and learn from.

All in all a rather enjoyable and simple event. So let's give the guys at venan some thanks for a job well done.

Love, Bims.

P.S. You'd better believe this one will be REDACTED soon

How soon?
