    It is rare that BP implements any twink prevention measure, so any time they do, I jump up and down cheering. If you care about doing the mini event, level up to 30. That can be done in a matter of a couple of hours and you would still have plenty of time to do the mini event.

    That is true ... they have 2 different requirements at the difficult entrance.
    First it says "required level 25"


    and when you try to enter you get notification that your level have to be level 30


    Just another clumsiness

    I am refering to the entrance of mini event the prof julov lab, it has 3 modes, the one of them is the normal for levels 15+.
    but there is no way for level less than 30 to reach this gate.
    Baragain thank you for your intenion to help, but as i think you realize you didnt add something to the point. except if you are trying to start a big disscusion about low levels but is not the aim of this post.

    I think it was a good idea to exclude levels 29 and below and quite honestly my opinion is that it would be better if it excluded people levels 44 or 45 and below so that all twinks were effectively cut off from getting the gear in this event. So my feedback on this particular element is positive.

    It happened to me many times and waste too many pearls. When the net is diconnected, go back to city after reconnection. I don't know why this bug is not fixed. Very very boring:(

    Honestly i dont like the drop rate on those difficulties.Did 11 runs on dragan hard to get the achievement points and got 0 uniques.This is unacceptable.I get the same drop from dragan normal at dragan hard yet i waste a lot of time, ander on revives and essences there while on normal i dont even use green and i kill it in a few seconds.Where is the logic behind this?

    Why there are no guaranteed drops at least on dragan hard?Also whats up with those weapon fragments? I did over 50-60 rounds on the 60 pearl map and i havent found the fragment.So far 1/4.Same goes for those fire/lightning/poison/ice gems things that should be crafted along with the weapon? Do those fragments and those gems really drop? I havent heard of anyone who got 3 /4 from weapon or any of those gems so something is fishy here.

    Also once we craft the weapon do we get a lvl 1 weapon or a lvl 3 weapon? Because if we get a lvl 1 weapon we will need 15 more and we can get max 1 now so we will have to wait for the next 15 dragan events to craft a lvl 3 one ...That will only take 8+ years assuming we play every dragan event ..If this is accurate then the same thing will happen with the dragan weapon and ring as the old defenders set items.We kept them for 2 years and we had to melt them because they were useless after that lol

    Well the price for dragan set can be reduced easily by 1.6k - 4.6k drakens by buying the lucky spheres but that is still a lot for someone new like me.

    I would have stopped at 20 runs max. What hope made you run so much?
    And the stats aren't great compared to stuff you can craft out of the workbench now.
    Moreover, Dragan is more fun with that many cursed pearls than running boring dungeons non stop.

    Okay so i got 0 parts of the weapons after almost 80 runs in the map of 60 pearls and 20 in the 90. Farming dragan on fatal its actualy very fun for me and my guildmates and i got 1 head tire 2- 2 heads tire 1- 1 boot tire 2- 2 gloves tire 1. Making the set its posible if you farm Heredur and Dragan. About the spider i still didnt did many runs. Only one on middle dificulty and 1 in hard, got the mount and the cloack tire 1. Once you finish with the dragan set the best choice is to farm red pearls to do a lot of runs at the spider but i really wanted an entrance at the spider in the hard map of the castle just to be faster. If anybody wants both sets you need a lot of farm. I quit with the weapon parts its just not worth the pearls i am wasting.

    err, yes but not really. There is nothing of significant value in the mini for a twink. Everything a twink would want is in normal Ravenclaw and it's associated maps. So the unfortunate reality is this is a very twink friendly event (like all of them.) Which brings me to my first bit of feedback for this event.

    Without the guaranteed unique drops of the old Dragan this event is rather pointless for lower level toons that do not use gappers (xp blockers.) Since the normal and painful mode drops of the uniques are essentially the same it is bassically impossible to get a tier 3 craft of any one item, let alone the set. So by the time this event rolls around again I will have out-leveled any tier 1/2 pieces that I have saved.

    Essentially the new uniques are only good for melts except for lvl 50s and TWINKS.

    Oh well, not a deal breaker for me. I am actually using events to level some ex-twinks and this is where this event excels for me. The xp boost in painful Dragan and Ghastly along with fairly decent mob drops (including difficult Ravenclaw) is nice.

    One flaw though... when I enter Dragan or Ghastly the screen says 1) increased chance of rare stats and 2) increased min stats... I am not seeing either of these. Still good for melts and coin which are both useful.

    As for the unique weapon parts being so rare... again no biggie. I would not craft these until lvl 50 anyway.

    Even though this event is a grotesque mutation of it's former glory it actually suits me fairly well. Ofc, I realize my play style is way different than the majority (wandering aimlessly with many accounts :rolleyes:) Still I have to give it a least a mild like overall because:
    • No prerequisite farming for the event. everything you need to do the event is in the event. (I think all events should be this way. I have never liked Thabo :D)
    • Drops are fairly decent due to a minimum of white items. I have come back to town more than a few times with 3+ tabs of drops without a single white item.
    • Monster scaling on normal/difficult maps is done well. (lolz, I will always remember the 3rd (i think) iteration of Sargon which was a, "OMG we are all gonna die :eek:)
    • The mini is very doable. At this point I will have enough time to complete it with more than the 3 toons I had originally planned (maybe, if I fell like it and get off the forum :p)
    Luck be with ye,

    You mean like this one? If that had come out as a longbow, that would have blown the event weapon out of the water. The moral of the story is the same as always when it comes to you. Stop complaining and farm smarter instead of longer/harder.

    One little thing, not too important, but still: the guide says that Sargon items can't drop because the set is not yet ready for lv50... and then there's those Gnob boxes handing out those very items... now, we all know how good a method those "Lucky" Spheres are, but I imagine they give lv50 variants... therefore, why is that question in the FAQ still there and the items not in the drop-list of Summoned Sargon? Contradiction much? Or just laziness?

    When designing the event, didn't anyone notice this could happen?


    Putting a limit to the number of spiders would have been nice and it would avoid the extreme lag this causes making it impossible to even move.

    PD: I know, the plan is to kill the eggs before they explode into one million spiders, but the idea is that if you miss some, the problem will multiply until reaching this.

    I guess you better not miss any then... Wow.

    Those Daily Quests are nice for a change.
    But they should be more rewarding. You can't expect giving 100 cursed pearls reward for a quest were 120+90+30 pearls are needed for entry (Challenge the Administrators).
    And of course ... since we are challenging those administrators that are actually dropping those weapon parts ... they should have at least increased drop chance when doing this quest.

    I have done 150+ runs and can't find a single piece of the weapon (except the first part that all got in the first drop at the first map)...can anyone confirm any other drop (part 2-3-4????)
