Quite heartbreaking to see out of the meager number of players participating in what used to be a popular activity, everyone is either doing occult or warped and donít take larges from floor thirty to occult.

Those farming dungeoneering tokens have been led to think mystery box mtx events like this wolf one, are more than adequate for dungeoneering tokens. Hereís an example:

Every time I try to find a team to fulfil large abandoned 2 I receive responses from the high level elites to Ďgot gudí rushing small dungeons on my own and screw the tokens until occult. They even told me tokens are so ez, just do events like the wolf one here to farm tokens. In fact on these very forums:

@ Aria Ventus

I have seen you bring this up a few times already. Why can't you do dungeoneering solo? I don't know much about dungeoneering just because I don't enjoy the skill much, but I am a level 83 and have never played anything but solo. Is there some reason people feel it has to be done in a group? It seems like solo would be a better option than mtxíing your way to a group


Agreed.


Seems like the community doesnít see the problem of activities going dead. Yet, Jagex keeps adding more rewards in the dungeoneering reward shop at very expensive token prices.

I just ask that tokens be removed from mystery boxes to increase participation in actual dungeoneering

You know you can get a lot of DG tokens from ED, right? So more rewards in the shop and less players doing DG directly.


You didnít mention that to me on the other thread I quoted from when asking for help quite literally for that overpriced gold accumulator.

Else I Ďd say getting past the minions and mini bosses is already a chore since they hit so hard.

Note Iím not taking the token grind beyond Sanctum guardian.

Remove dung tokens from ed2 and temp events and TH to solve OP's issue.


Iíd leave elite dungeons in case someone is willing to help me grind for tokens next time I ask for a group on the ge like Iíve seen some players do.

I die mostly to Oyu and Xiang. This not only incurs a death cost or a degradation fee but all mini bosses disappear when I return for some reason.

Neither of these is going to happen TBH. :D

ED is really great for players looking to kill several birds with one stone... like DG tokens, xp, combat, The Arc currencies, and of course, as usual, adequate loots.

I don't see temp events and TH cause too many to not DGing. They don't give DG tokens. They give xp lamps/stars but DG is not a good skill to use them on since DG xp come really really easy.

The other "problem" to DG is actually its own Sinkholes. The holes give mega xp daily. :)

You can get token boxes from wolf event. Did you not know that?

Whether or not you get tokens in sinkholes is entirely rng. Iíve come first, second and third and usually end up frustrated with a lamp due to the mixing up of chests at the end. Call it fun if you like but doesnít appeal to me.

Besides you can only do sinks twice a day

Maybe we get DG tokens occasionally from events but they come in so small quantity than what I can just thief from priffdinas... yes, and theiving is another good reason why players don't do DG for tokens as often now.

You don't always get tokens from Sinkholes but most of the time you get xp, especially the daily challenge xp is very good.

Have you checked my stats? A long way from Prif isnít it? Tokens should only come from dungeoneering as was its initial design. Having them come from elite dungeons is as far as it should go albeit that was the most recent addition Iím aware.

A lot of them actually came from thieving in Priffdinas way before ED. Jagex made it even easier by making the thieved DG pouches automatically converted into tokens because the thieves ask for it.

Don't blame ED, blame the Priffdinas thieves first. ;)
