I haven't played as much as with the event.
Getting stones for those shiny purples yum yum .
I wish the kept the faction in the game and make the stones only drop like in an daily invasion or death rifts.
i could live with it if the quests where gone but i really loved to hunt for stones

The thing is normal rifts dont give my real satisfaction , 4 planerite and a green and a little notority for a faction i did not even see a merchant of ( i guess i overlooked or its in higher lvl area?)

It was so much fun ...
Maybe the event went wrong the hunt for stones was so good i really miss it already
