    Can anyone tell me the quickest/easiest ways of getting all the uniques available in this event? I basically know, but I just want a pro's expertise on how to obtain the Dragan set, those 2 parts of the Legendary King's set, the Heredur shield, any Sargon items that could drop... hope I didn't miss any. But, are those last two things even available in this edition of this kind of event?

    No easy answer but generally the uniques available through completing the event will be simpler to obtain then the ones that are random drops from the bosses. For the first ones, just do the event you will get them, for the drops persistence through repetition is the only answer and will be far from quick or easy. Sargon did drop items last time but they were rare and mostly on the armor side from anecdotal tells. No idea what he will drop this time if anything. Heredur dropped his shield frequently.

    If you want speed and ease, the answer is money and friends.
    Buy Ander to the point of pain, then gem up, and visit the traders and jesters 'til your broke. Stack your pots and red essences.
    Then take you boss gear, and team with the baddest players you can find. Farm the hell out of the event, take every shortcut you can, and work the progress bar to completion. Run the bosses for loot at every opportunity. Play 'til you drop, then come back.

    Works every time.
    Enjoy!

    The Dragan set seems like an awful deal of work, as it involves 2 rounds of crafting (LOL, 16 of each 4 first-tier items :confused:). I'll probably pass.

    About the Legendary King items... I heard you can get them by doing those challenges? Does anyone know more about this? If so, please share your knowledge :oops:; I'd kill to get those, even if I'm not lv45 yet, but if Hard Mode is limited to end-game players, then I don't even need to bother (not saying it's not fair to limit the Difficult section for high-level people, on the contrary).

    If Heredur drops his shield frequently, then it's awesome. It's one of the best unique shields, and I wouldn't mind having one :D. And if Sargon drops are rumored to be more on the armor side, I don't mind either; if any'll drop, that is. I saw a video on one of the previous issues of this event series and saw both Heredur & Sargon being spawned in the same room, the player having to battle them both at once. Is that so with this installment as well? This would probably be the part I'd want to focus on during the event, as I don't think I'll have enough time to pay attention to it as a whole. If I'm not asking too much, I'd appreciate more info on the location and requirements (such as "entry fees", if any) for meeting these bad-boys, especially Heredur (I want that shield if it's not so rare a drop). Thanks!
    Haha, great answer ;). Nah, I won't be doing that... sadly I have not so much time for this event, and I'm certainly not gonna go so bonkers with spending stuff for it :D. I was looking for more of a shortcut-guide (something like how people mostly only do the Vargulf boss in the Full Moon event). Thanks for the reply, though; made me smile a little :).

    You can't get those items if you are not level 45 player .... but ... you can get these:

    Which are not permanent. The funny thing is they last for 1 day ... so even if you get them ... I doubt you will ever put them on. :D

    Awesome, more pics of such drops please!

    I d like to ask about entering the hard map (castle/dungeon). What does it take? Do we need to finish a quest to permanently unlock it? Or will we need pearls for every entrance this time? Or just one pearl, just once, and will we be able to enter for free and unlimited after that?
    Besides from getting pearls to dragan hard from these boxes, how else can we get them? Do we still summon bosses from statues for those pearls? Or will it be different this time?

    I was just 2 cloaks short last time, so i hope to finish this set quick, so i can enjoy the rest of the event this time. Btw, will we be able to enter the hard map from day 1? Or will it be unlocked after a week or so, like last time (devs, i still hate you for that!).

    Well, ain't that funny! Hope that wand was good ;). Yeah, it'd be more of a tease to get those and see them there, grinning while they wait to expire, knowing I can't use them xD. I see this was from one of those special chests? What do you open them with? Also, still want some info on how to encounter Heredur in this event, thanks :D.

    For me also not random, only when going solo. The 1st dragan event I couldn't see lasers anywhere solo. The sencond dragan event I could see the laser only in Ravenclaw castle norm map, but the hard map and dragan again bugged.
    Unfortunatelly the workaround to invite a friend to map and then let him leave is usable solution only for the castle maps, not for dragan. No friend will come to Dragan map and leave just to help me see the lasers :( And waiting all the time till some friends wants to come at dragan is not an option when I want to drop enought cloacks to combine the final cloack. I wasted a lot of precious event time waiting for someone to come with me, even if I am strong enough to beat the dragan very easily solo, but with those invisible lasers, I could not. No way I will be able to finish the cloack this way if it won't be fixed again :mad:

    Was any tweak done for the relentless grind for pearls????

    trakilaki's screenshot contains the boots and the gloves. The torso is called "Fortitude", as far as I know. Could be wrong though, since I also thought the boots were called "Celerity", not "Steadfastness" and that the wording was "Legendary King's..." not "...of the Legendary King". Maybe it's only the temporary ones that have different names.
    One thing I forgot to ask: were those 1-day uniques able to be sold or melted? I suppose no, but I'm curious.

    I am playing on TS since the start of the event. All I can say is that you need ... HUGE amount of pearls.
    Neglecting my ranger on the live server ... I was playing 8+ hours per day just to solve the whole story line.
    But OK ... people are reading Wiki and we have to come with the "exclusive info" before BP release the event on live servers. :D
    Pearls will be big issue for players who play the game casually. The drop of pearls is somehow lower than before.

    Those names are probably for temporary ones.
    They can be sold for 10 silver coins. :D
