    Since farming massive amounts of draken cores are needed and they can only be obtained in quantity during certain events it got me wondering if there were any reasonable alternatives.

    I'm pretty sure that this isn't possible, since DK's are basically required to have 6 or 7 items needing draken cores, but out of sheer boredom it has me wondering.

    It would be nice to have something to do besides waiting for events that allow farming of draken cores.

    I'm not used to DKs, but if you're looking for a build free of draken cores you can use all the PW equipments.

    Khalys' Head and Shoulders.
    Sigrismarr's Torso and Trophy.
    Herald's Hands and Weapon.
    M'edusa's Boots and Amulet.
    Cloak of Heroes.
    Bearach's Belt.
    Mortis' Ring.
    Any other Elemental Ring.

    Of course, you can alternate between World Drop items. This won't make you achieve 60k damage, but for the fun of it wouldn't be as absurd as it seems. In fact, I was wondering how effective would be a healing build if only Bloodmage items weren't based on draken cores. E.g. Untouchables 5/6 right parts, for extra healing when picking up spheres. Bloodmage 3/4 belt, weapon and Amulet for healing after defeating enemies, Artaya's ring of life for fast life regeneration, 30/80 life recovering wisdom points instead of chr bonus.

    I've been looking into the various pw sets as that seems to be the only option.

    It's either try to find something to do between events while playing this game or just take yet another long break from it. The dependence on draken core gear is just tedious.

    If you're totally insane, you could do the DK version of what I did with Balor set for SW. I wouldn't recommend it though. xD

    It would be nice if there were some other options that were somewhat comparable with what we are forced to use since they obviously won't make getting draken cores any easier to obtain.

    I already have a nice helmet, shoulders, torso, gloves, boots and a better adornment just waiting in my locker for the necessary cores.

    Until I can farm thousands of draken cores, my only option is to mindlessly farm the desert for gold to use for more failed weapon crafts, then rinse and repeat.

    It is just pure boredom.

    Yeah, there's like 50 PW sets and you can't make up your mind about which ones to choose?:p
    Maybe look into the world sets too. :rolleyes: Cube set also.
    Still, w/o the bellicose set... damage ain't gonna be that great.

    The cube set would be okay if I wanted to go 1h, but not sure how well it would work going 2h. I'll have to pay attention the next time they give away a freemium.

    The world sets don't offer much. The desert set would probably max out around 16 to 18K dmg and that wouldn't be much fun.

    Between the dark pieces, new moon pieces and dragan set, I need many thousands of draken core and since there is only a couple of events that allow some decent core farming, I'm stuck looking at good crafts sitting in my locker and that is not in the least bit fun.

    Well it was easy enough to gather all the necessary pw items, but sadly they are no match compared to the dragan/dark set combo.

    The massive drop in dmg and crit by using a mixed pw set is just too much of a difference.

    So it looks like I'll just have to severely limit any playing time in this game until they offer an event where draken cores can be farmed.

    You can split any group of items (gem, ess, etc). Put your mouse over the item, hold down ctrl on your keyboard and drag the item to an open slot.
