    I'm doing it in the iron forest (map4) because i got advised by a man who helped me, and it seems that it gives more drop than other maps.
    The only good amphorae are the golden ones because the others are just a scam (but we don't have infinite keys).
    The drop of red pearls from the chest in map is inexistent, so idk how we can finish the 4th bar or just the 3rd one.
    The problem of this event is the boredom and the time that you have to spend every day. The anniversary event done in fatal was really funny compared to this.
    Unfortunately there are some good reward in the last bar but they can stay where they are.

    One common trend can be noticed: ever longer progress bars, ever lower progress drops, leading to ever more grind. The events are unfinishable for newer players who can't clear I3 maps in 5 minutes. Why is normal and fatal drop the same? That makes no sense. Dragan excavations, 2 runs on fatal, +22 progress on the second bar. This is absolutely ridiculous. 300 black pearls wasted on entries. Also, killing around 150 enemies in main castle (On Inf1!!), I increased my black pearl stock by an astonishing amount of 2. Yes, two.

    So why Dragan sword is 2H and why that set is actually a Tank set working on "Block" basis which isn't possible with a 2H weapon?!

    The pauldrons of the very set you're talking about have block rate in their base value.

    Well no problem with that, it's supposedly a "Tank" set
    So only oddness is 2H weapon being a part of it..

    Actually u can have a good dmg and defense with dragan defensive set and 2h weapon i just abandoned it as it is very hard to get a good block rate on inf 5 + now. But when inf 4 was max level there was 2k dmg difference with witch seeker set and way more defenses.

    today we were making about 300 excavation entries to look for red pearls. The loot achieved was an average of 15 pearls. Really? How do they expect us to complete the third and fourth bars if we can't enter ????

    15? are you high or something? :D
    only 5 Red Pearls for entire day of farming ... just because I was lucky :D ... my friends got less :D

    So they had time to lower the drops dramatically ... but they had no time to fix bugs like the level 1 items.


    A friend of mine has got this T8 level 1 hoaxbow ... hoping to get T8 items for crafting. The entrance fees are over the roof ... but apart form few green and blue items a rare exo item can be level 1 and useless af.

    I am not saying they are not ... just saying that the mini-bosses are dropping it 100% ... he said they are not
    When are you planning on taking the exams? :)

    What is the best way to finish the 2nd progress bar? As far as I can tell, the only way to get empowered pearls is the 4 dungeons. I get less than 10 progress each run. It would cost a small fortune to buy amphora keys and over 100 runs to finish. I don't see where there are any prizes worth that kind of effort.

    Unfortunately you have to: 1) go infernals (I1 drops 2 times as much) 2) open any golden amphoras 3) hope to get Cadoc often, and then clear the bonus map as well, it gives you around 40 on fatal.

    Also, excavations seem to be the least efficient. From fatal run on excavations, I get around 8-12 progress, for Iron forest, it's 24-30. Don't forget to do the repeating quest every time you enter, you will get, at minimum, 60 entry pearls back from the reward chest.

    A small tip: once you clear the dungeon and finish the repeating quest, return to Ravenclaw on I3 - you will get T6 items from the chest (you can theoretically return on I7 and get T10, but you probably won't have infernal frags), no matter what difficulty you had in the dungeon. Then, teleport to Kingshill and reenter Ravenclaw on fatal or whatever you're playing on.

    Thanks for the explanation. So this event is grindy AND spendy. There is not much point in spending now with the expansion coming.

    1) You may use the 3h free event attire as it gives 50% bonus to progress on the 2nd progress bar.
    2) You may also do it (with friends, clan mates, strangers) on infernal difficuly, e.g on inf4 you can complete it in less than 20 runs. On inf4 monsters drop 10 progress and your best friends can be the golden amphorae (by default they drop 3x10 progress, however each can be more like 20, 40, 60, 80, 160. Most of the time you get low progress, I personally had some lucky ones, e.g. 180, 300).
    3) If you get Cadoc and entrance to the Spider then go for it, all monsters and amphorae drop progress for the 2nd bar while the Spider drops for the 3rd/4th bars.

    Yeah, if you have pearls otherwise it is a pain in the [EDIT] to farm them either in 003 normal or doing the 2k/80/5 repeatable quest. Grind, grind, grind and even more grind :eek:

    Entrance fee becomes no issue if u join few "Rune farm"s

    But yea, other issues persist..

    Also, the costume drop rate for the knights is still very low, nonsensically low.

    And did anyone notice the bugged animations of Dragan in the great Hall?
    And the great hall is still buggy as hell, such as random teleports which conveniently take you in the middle of the enemies and get you killed.

    As I was playing the first progress bar, I thought how fun this is - maybe I've been too hard on this game. Then the second bar was like running into a wall. I would spend money if I was having fun, but I shudder to think how much money it would cost to buy the amphora keys. I understand that grinding is part of the game, but the dungeons in this event are so painful. I hate the headless horseman mechanic. I never see his attack coming. So, that's it for this event.
