    Yes the Black Spider is dropping those items.
    I had the portal to Ghastly Grave spawned today in Dragan's Excavation Site ... I didn't enter but the set was displayed on the entrance.
    From that moment on ... I have never got the entrance again. Not on the same map not on any other map ... nowhere.
    I don't even know how to spawn that map entrance again :D

    It was right here on this spot

    but now it spawned a different portal :D :D
    It appeared after killing some dude NAME_The Belligerent ... who is appearing randomly and random portals are spawning. Really? (facepalm)

    Hopefully it's a frequent thing

    Are we sure it's not even on the black knights map?

    The two event bosses are also found on that map!

    But maybe it's too good to hope for it!

    I don't know I am still playing the quest with the scroll from the rocketmen event.
    Like it wasn't enough brainless farming during rocketmen event ... now we have to continue the farming even more.
    What a BS stupid drop on quest items ... 2 drops in average per run ... and we need to collect x50 on all 4 maps :D :D

    Anyway ... here he is again Cadoc the Belligerent. This time in Sulfur Desert.

    what a pile of stinky bananas ... we can't even select difficulty. The entrance is at same difficulty as the difficulty of the map we get the door. What if I want to play there on infernal 4? does that mean I should spend all my infernal passages hoping that someday somewhere the portal will show up? :D
    All these random dungeons are mess because they are not yet finished.
    Inside the Ghastly Grave there are Rotten Cyclopes and Dragons, spiders and undead creatures and the Black Widow is roaming across the entire dungeon.

    It looks like a punch in the face towards all who are trying to build some more defensive gear.

    I hope so... but still, putting Ghastly Grave as a random map is plain stupid. Of course, if they moved the defensive set to dragan too, it would make sense. But then, what would be the purpose of a second boss?

    Who knows why they limit the possibility of having that set?

    It doesn't make much sense, the development of the game has been done on the damage!

    In a group you don't need the tank with the latest news alone you can't afford to lose damage, at the limit go to a lower level!

    I forget that pvp is what they did and I gave up just to go there!

    They promised pvp sets so that this has nothing to do with it or it is ruinous to invest in a set that will be removed!

    But maybe it's still early and some things will change!

    The entrance is having difficulty selection ... that was only the first entry (playing the quest)

    The first time you kill Dragan in the new map you will drop the entire dragan set... They say it in the last January twitch.

    Interesting. Since that item happens while I'm at work and thus can't watch (not that I would watch any 3 hour game broadcast), I was not aware of that. Somebody who can, and desires to watch Jesse for 3 hours, should start a thread of "Twitch highlights" for the rest of us who don't have that kind of time to waste. ;)

    today with update to 228_6 the quest "Preparation for the Unknown" has been resetted and I haven't the mysterious scroll so how I can test? Bahhhhhh.

    I didn't understand the requirements to open final chest in the 4 maps...there is no quest so I didn't know if I cleaned map.
    Before I can use quest Preparation for the Unknown 2/2 enabling navigation for Mark of Dragan but now I can't.

    Black Knight and miniboss in castle Ravencaw don't drop black pearls at 100%
    In Sulfur Desert there is a portal to Mistras at night so we can clean 2 maps. I didn't see portal in other maps.

    Some quests are bugged so I must exit and re-enter maps paying pearls.
    In Dojo I was killed and all monsters disappeared so another bug?

    If you don't complete progress bar 2 (progress in maps with fee) every black pearls you get in castle don't count as progress.

    The 1st time I killed Dragan I didn't receive a full Dragan set, 0 uniques.

    It has no sense to make fee maps at high difficulty because drop are miserable and fee are 2x, 3x and more.
    I didn't see the boss present in last event like Heredur, Sargon, etc.

    There are fewer quests than in previous events but on the other hand they are much more boring and long :)
    I finished the 3 quest and the re-quest for sulfur desert and excavation site so I played a bit.
    In 5 runs of excavation site I dropped only 11/50 Dragan mark so I think we need 20-25 runs of every map that means a lot of black pearls.

    GOOD JOB!!!

    Hi,

    Amphoras :)

    No bug. That is intended. ;)

    But they exist. Random appearance :)

    I have finished the quest once and I still have one more scroll in my locker ... I will check if the quest is still the same or something changed.
    As far as I noticed they are activating when you clear something like 80% of the map.
    That was changed with the yesterday's update and I don't think it is a bug.
    It has been made like Hard Core :D if you die they are all gone and you are screwed you lose everything and you need to enter again ... and you will die again :D There is no way to stay alive with all those monsters and minibosses attacking in same time ... especially with all those fires and poisons and the shield that is making the monsters immune to stuns. At least for 3 classes in solo play that is impossible to survive. You can't separate them and deal with them group by group because the part of the map near the entrance has that mist and you can't use any skills there. The new Great Hall as they said is a solo map ... and I don't know if the Battleground map is solo too or it can be played in a group. That sucks. basically those are the old boss mechanics when if dying or if all the members of the group are dead the fight is over and you have lost everything and you need to start it all over again.
    That sucks because it will make me find design flaws in order to deal fit the suckers on the map.
    Those pearls only count for the first progress bar. Those for the third and the fourth progress bar are not the same. those are new called something like Raven Pearls. They drop from bosses.
    I have already answered that in my previous posts. They are all random and can be opened on all maps.
    All you have to do is to be lucky enough to get the Cadoc the Belligerent and kill him. When you kill him a portal to a random map opens up.

    EDIT
    ///////
    yeah I said I forgot to mention some other way of getting them

    Besides of the amulet +12%dmg and the new no-set items, will Dragan drop any set suitable for end players? Or will he drop old sets reworked? Or none of all that?

    I apologize in case any of you on TS already explained it in previous posts... lately I don't have much time or interest to read with care.

    Did they rework the weapons? Are they actually valuable for end game builds?
