    Did Sargon get some type of buff since the last event or did Ranger get nerfed since then?

    I just tried him on normal mode just to save essence & complete the quest, but I could barely damage him at all in normal mode. Piercing Shot wouldn't work while blue shield was up, but thought that did last event. Even after I FINALLY got the blue shield down with Hunting Arrow & Piercing Shot started working it was still barely doing any damage at all. I had 1200 of the green light essence & went through almost 800 just to get blue shield down and after I saw how little damage Piercing Shot was doing I just exited since I knew I wouldn't have enough to finish. The last event I could kill him and was at least 30 levels lower than now and much weaker (I'm level 98 now).

    I'm level 98 Ranger
    Base Damage 122374
    Crit 19.68%

    It is all scaled so as your level increases so will the difficulty. You shouldn't have to but you will need to find a group to make this easier and use fewer resources.

    What server are you on?

    I'm on Agathon. I just assumed the more strength I've gained would balance out any scaling of difficulty. I could see it being that hard on a higher difficulty level, but being that it's on normal it feels harder than it should be. I can kill the rest of the board with no problems then Sargon felt like hitting a boss on Infernal or higher. I wouldn't really mind if the essences dropped more often like they did with the Easter event, but getting 4 or so here & there a couple of times on the board sucks. I know they're hoping we'll use andermant, but it should be able to be solo'd on normal without farming essence all day in hopes of getting enough to kill him one time. I may just save up essences and try next event if I've gotten stronger & have enough.

    shields have huge damage reductions, are immune to debuffs, and somewhat high HP on top of it to widdle down. Some bosses i feel like the shield takes more work to break off than to actually kill said boss, like heredur, dark force, sargon form 1, perhaps resistance to physical or higher armor makes it seem more difficult.

    If you just cant do this now, this "Event" is on repeat monthly or two, mainly just to clear the main quest lines off since theres two parts merged into the "storyline" which require killing sargon, then killing him again in form 2/3. The loot from this event isn't great and most progress comes from killing sargon on merciless+

    Your looking in the wrong direction for essences. There's a telepolo's quest for "9999 dark kills". Once completed that quest gives you the light essence crafting ability, then you can craft basic+ varieties. Its a matter of running back to telepolos crystals and getting light spheres (or from a few other zones) to craft them which takes a few minutes. This quest sucks, but its a lot easier to do this quest in still waterbay at night when this event is active; and this quest only really helps with the terrifying shadow event / sargon, something you'll soon be skipping once you do it once or twice, if at all.

    I didn't think the difficulty would scale so much on normal mode in 30 levels, but thanks for the explanations. I'm still relearning everything along with the new stuff.

    I've never heard of the Telepolo's quest, so I'll check that out and start working on it. At least this event isn't really worth stressing out about because like you said the rewards aren't that great. I saw 200 rune dust for T3 reward and laughed, lol.

    Thanks again guys for the help!
