Dear Kos and Lakoo friends,
Thanks for a great Chinese New Year event! I love how it offers desirable rewards that are not too easy and not too hard to get! Having different boss fights for different level brackets is a great idea to keep things rewarding and fun for players of all levels!!
If you don’t have anything planned for March, I want to suggest a St. Patrick Day (or week) EVENT!! This is a great time for friends to celebrate together about magic, imagination, and of course, good luck.
In the event, you help a Leprechaun retrieve his silver back from a Greedy 3-Headed Dragon. After defeating the boss, you steal the Dragon Chest. Now, do you feel lucky and open it for a chance to win +2 gems, 1-50 silver, time limit and permanent event loot, and a chance for a legendary Blue Dragon pet? Test your luck by giving the Dragon Chest back to the Leprechaun who said he would reward you with a Pot of Gold!! Of course, being a crafty fellow he didn’t say how much gold was in it! Maybe you will get only 1, 10, 50, or a lucky 5,000 gold!
Lucky Charm [amulet, +7 critical, +7% mp, +77 magic]
Four-Leaf Clover Crown [helm, +4 critical, +4% hp, +400 range, look: green garland headband]
Fairy Wings [cloak, +10 critical, +10% speed, +10% dodge, look: fairy wings on back]

Ninja Suit [fashion, +10 agi, +5% dodge]
Rationale aka Sales Pitch:
Ok, the events have been great! However, with the silver system not working for the majority of players, there is a serious shortage of silver in the game. Naturally, players convert gold into silver to participate in your awesome reward chances from events (which would be nice to have in this one as well, it is a good feature). Most players I run into can’t buy silver and have already downloaded all the free gold apps in the Tapjoy system. Maybe it’s just me, but it feels like nobody can really trade because no one wants to risk an item swap due to scamming, and very few players have enough gold to buy high rarity items.
I think the potential (very, VERY rare) for players to get a large gold reward would not only encourage participation, but would more importantly put a little gold back into the game to free up trading. It would also keep people interested in the game because some folks feel like they will never get enough gold to buy parts for the set they have been working toward. The silver would help beginning players learn how to use silver and maybe get them interested in buying once the silver system is working again.
The event items are all Leprechaun theme (except the Ninja suit which is just darn cool ;). I’d like to see the Four-Leaf Clover Crown because I think range folks could use a little extra damage without needing the full Surifen suit. The Fairy Wings should be easy to make (not to mention gosh-darn cool) and I’ve argued for a lv30 cloak for awhile. The Leprechaun Suit…well because the female one would be sexy ;) We need more blowpipes because there really aren’t many and this could be used by wizard/archer hybrids. Did I mention the Ninja Suit?
Thanks for listening and keep up the great work!
