    Reive Evaluations

    Greetings pioneers!

    Hopefully everyone was doing their best this weekend to contribute to the colonization efforts, which in most cases means a lot of Reives.

    As we have been receiving quite a bit of feedback about this new content, we feel that adjustments are necessary and have decided to put it on a higher priority. However, we need your help! If you currently feel that you are not receiving enough experience points or bayld while doing Reives, please fill out the below template and post it as a response to this thread.

    Please only post EXP and bayld data from Reives you participated in after this post was made.
    (*This is limited to Colonization Reives and Lair Reives for the time being)

    Please note the below important points:
    1. Please only post the experience points and bayld for a single evaluation and NOT the total of multiple evaluations.
    2. If you felt that the experience points and bayld you received were too low multiple times in a single Reive, please separate them into different sets and post them in the same reply.
    3. Please make separate posts for different Reives.

    This is only about the first evaluation, where you never get anything whatever you do. The best I did for the first one was the one below. Worth mentioning is that I get 150-250 for the same amount of work on subsequent ones.

    Amount of experience points and bayld for a single evaluation
    EXP: 150/0 (the first amound happened 2-3 times but most of the time it was 0)
    Bayld: 50/0

     
    Actions performed at the time
    Nuking Roots and spawned monsters (~10 tierV spells + Aspir/Aspir 2), occasionnal buffs like Stoneskin and cure IV on my self (2-3 times per Reives), Sleepga (~5) the adds.


    How much HP did you damage the obstacle or lair for?
    30-50% with each nukes on adds, 1-2% on the obstacle

    While I get you probably don't want some low lvl to get xp from just spamming cures, just put a level requirement to be able to join Reives and the problem is solved. Most of the mages I played with just melee the roots to actually get some xp/bayld.

    Amount of experience points and bayld for a single evaluation
    EXP: ~200
    Bayld: ~150

     
    Actions performed at the time
    Hastega more than 18 persons with garuda
    Whispering wind more than 18 persons for more than 3k hp each time
    Attacked the root with BP (wind blade and predator claw mostly) ~1400 dmg for each use of wind blade
    Dia 2 the root

     
    How much HP did you damage the obstacle or lair for?
    I was doing ~1400 dmg to the root every 45 seconds

    I saw that if I dismiss my avattar just before the evaluation, it ended with red message, 0 xp and 0 bayid, if I use the same avattar without dismissing it, I gain a very little amount of xp (compare to the xp I make with my mnk) and bayid. it seems totally random by the way. sometimes, I just don't get any xp for the whole reive, sometimes, I gain a little, but never more than 200 per evaluation.

    So did I, but apparently they've fired the testing staff and would rather live test with paying customers. Better to have people testing your game that are paying for it, rather than paying people to tell you how much your programming blows.
