Default Epic weekend disappointment

okay, so once again i've gone thru all thirst cycles on an "epic" weekend and haven't seen an epic item either in the shops or any of the quests. I'm just wondering if i happen to be the unluckiest person on the server, or is this a common occurrence? At least the gold and exp weekend events are guaranteed to satisfy, and thank you s&f very much for those events

epic weekend is always disappointing for me i dont get many and spend loads of shrooms looking for epics in the shop the other special weekends are better in my opinion yeah fer enough when you do find them they do help and rise your stats but it just costs too many shrooms

outside of epic weekends I would estimate one epic every 80-100 store refreshes. On epic weekends it's closer to 1 every 30-40. So you will see more epics, but only if you spend mushrooms. The chance of seeing an epic without blowing a bunch of mushrooms refreshing the store is remote. I actually had one offered yesterday morning, but it was, alas, an all-luck epic, not worth the 15 mushrooms it cost

I average 1 every 10-15 shrooms
I average a 3-stat every 40-50 shrooms
I average the 3-stat I need every 100 shrooms
The least I've spent for a full set is 300 shrooms
The most I've spent for a full set is 2000 shrooms

I utilize epic weekends every 3rd go round which means 3-4 times per year.

Weel, that's how it works. Events can't be for everyone. Epic event is useful for people who aren't shy to spend shrooms. For the others: wait 2 weeks, then it's mushroom event.

Epic Weekend is definitely a love it or hate it event for the player base. For non-shroomers, it is essentially a none event as currently designed. Suggestions to make it more useful to the community at large, rather than just for shroomers, have been put forth.

Epic Weekend = Great for Shroomers, Pointless for Non-Shroomers
Mushroom Weekend = Great for Non-Shroomers, Pointless for Shroomers

My recommendation is you allow potions to be purchased with just mushrooms or just gold, then I would be happy!

The event is close to fair as it is, since epics are meant to be rare and comparing the numbers of players walking around full epic it is already too cheap

I stopped paying some weeks ago now and reduced my remainder of shrooms with turning pages in the shops instead of playing time, - ~400 = 6 new epics, 4 equipped or allstat/3stat exchange, 2 pure gold for the toilet.
-> Reduction of defense value from 4199 to 3899.

~400 this weekend (now down to 20 - the thirst on gold/ecp events) and nearly 20 epics seen, but only 3 bought:
a) an allstat weapon showing up as first acceptable
b) an allstat ring (the only epic in magic shop besides an hilarious amount of drinks (~100 shrooms left there + 30 for ring and 1 eternal)
c) the second day within the last turns an acceptable 3 stat weapon

When writing acceptable I mean considering Aura for stat value and of course the defense value - 360 defense is not usable if intending to keep 10%.

Before the event: Full epic was much more expensive too keep at 1 level, the 1st 2 events I had more 3 stat offered - the others events or the higher level domain the shops offered for me 6:3:1 all:3:luck. If this was "bad luck" for me or general (in this case it would be a serious issue ) I don't know, so the full reequip was something like ~1500 for me, using the largest package at discount rates this is 600 bonus and 900 standard shrooms *

What would be acceptable as redesign:
at least 1 non luck epic guaranteed from tavern if playing 300 thirst the event days (you can save 7 guaranteed per week + sponsor pay + luck - seems ok for me)
less high priced epics, even with 10 million gold in the pockets you have too little (weapons likely full 10 million starting in really 2xx levels, some 3 stat stuff in the range 2.x to 8.x million even with equal stats (+317 shoes with 356 def were priced 8.17 million, +315 ring 2.36 million, +628 weapon with good range 2.7 million, all the examples + 15 shroom -> full set: min. ~ 27 million max 90 million - with 10 million start and gold questing with bad luck still too expensive stuff because you are unable to earn 80 million on 2 days)

*I don't know if this list was from 26x or 28x but here an example of 1 day as "selective" shroomer, from the 1 490K price I assume it was the 26x event:
turned pages until epic - all + 15
9 tunic - unacceptable
11 shoes - bought for 1.6mio
27 creme - overpriced 3.2mio
9 heart staff - bought 6.7mio
1 hat low def declined (1.4mio)
10 cylinder crap def declined
10 hat crap def, low stats declined (3.0mio)
15 belt (2.8 mio + 100 def) no
45 belt (1.2 mio - 200 def) no
3 beltl, same def 490K - no but good price
10 shoes, low def - no
15 luck epic
30 hat - crap def, 1mio no
64 shoes crap def, 900k no
5 gloves crap def, 1.1 mio - no
3 hat - crap def, no
18 robe , 3.4 mio -yes
7 luck
11 acceptable gloves 900k -yes

(drinks each 527K)
5 3 drink int xxl - taken
2 2 drink int xxl - taken
11 3 Int xxl - taken
2 int - skip
5 gold life - take
3 int -skip
5 const skip
4 aus skip
3 int skip
1 2 const skip
18 all att chain 2.7 mio no
7 life gold .yes
54 all att chain better 2.7 mio, yes
59 all att chain - no
61 all att chain - no
==========
open ring, extra, belt, hat
spend ~ 15 million gold +75 on 1 day + ~550 turns
