    Heroes of Dracania,

    Dragan Doll
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    He is dreadful, merciless, wicked to the bone and… he is damned.
    Beware of Dragan in pocket size. He will prick you while you sleep and
    whenever you take a walk. A living nightmare, who will never stop.

    Realm Fragments

    As you might have read, we decided to reduce the drop rate for Realm Fragments with this release. One reason for this is, that we run less Realm Fragment-based events than we have originally planned.

    We have also implemented a special version of the Looters Fortune event that increases the drop rate of Realm Fragments. Our plan is to run this event regularly whenever an event is coming that requires Realm Fragments.

    This change is the first step to decrease the huge gap between players with an endless amount of Realm Fragments versus players that struggle with finishing events due to a lack of Realm Fragments. The Looters Fortune event is supposed to create a balance between these two.​


    Curse of the Black Knights – Return of Dragan

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Dragan is back and up to his evil tricks again!
    Rumors have that Dragan gathers more and more strong fighters.
    What is he planning?
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Castle Ravencaw
    010.png
    The castle has changed compared to the last time. Before the player is able to enter one of the four main maps of the event, the areas of Castle Ravencaw need to be unlocked by completing the first quests from Janus Fox who is waiting in front of the castle.​

    Each unlocked area of Castle Ravencaw comes with a set of relic chests and a Fox Agent who offers quests to find out what Dragan is planning this time. At the end of each quest, a relic chest of the area can be opened. These chests can contain different rewards like premium membership, Andermant, Gilded Clover, Draken, runes, gems, unique items or a Jewel of Rejuvenation.​

    Cursed Pearl Maps

    Gloomy Pastures
    011.png
    The Gloomy Pastures is a map full of fiery enemies and the place where the Fiery Headless Horseman can be found.​


    Iron Forest at night
    012.png
    The Iron Forest at night is a map full of frost enemies and the place where the Icy Headless Horseman can be found.​


    Dragans Excavation Site
    013.png
    Dragans Excavation Site is a map full of electrified enemies and the place where the Electrified Headless Horseman can be found.​



    Sulfur Desert
    014.png
    The Sulfur Desert is a map full of poisonous enemies and the place where the Poisonous Headless Horseman can be found.​

    In all those four maps is also a chance that Cadoc the Belligerent appears. He must be defeated to open the portal to Mystras at night, Wild Forest at night or the Ghastly Grave.​

    Black Knights’ Battleground
    017.png
    The battleground is one of the maps where the player has to use Empowered Cursed Pearls to enter them. Note that this area is meant to be a challenge for more experienced players and therefore is considered as failed if the player dies in this location. It is also important to know that the battleground can only be entered alone – so be prepared!​

    The Great Hall​
    018.png
    The Great Hall can only be entered after completing the Preparation for the Unknown quest that is given by Janus Fox after unlocking all 4 areas of Castle Ravencaw. Note that, just like the Battleground, this map can only be entered alone and is a bigger challenge for all players.​

    Event Attire

    There is also an attire available for the event.

    019.png 020.pngGet the Dragan Event Attire and receive the following bonus as long as you wear it:
    • 5% chance that enemies in Castle Ravencaw drop additional Cursed Pearls
    • 2% chance that Dragan drops an Empowered Cursed Pearl
    • 50% increased Elemental-charged Pearl drop stack size
    • 10% increased Raven Pearl drop stack size

    Frequently asked questions

    Will there be an old Dragan set available somewhere somehow?
    If you refer to the Black Squire, Black Knight and Black Warlord equipment, the answer is yes and now. The unique items will not be available during this version of the Dragan event but the Gnob will offer the Skins of these items so that you could use them to customize your item appearance.​
    021.png

    What’s dropping from the Amphorae?
    The Amphorae drop definitively Cursed Pearls and Draken among other generic loot but they also have a chance of dropping the Mysterious Scroll, the Iron Morning Star, the Administrator’s Chest, the Focarrific Chest of Elemental Intel, a Flame of a Phoenix, the Fire Gnome Horns and, of course, an Empowered Cursed Pearl.​
    What’s the best way to farm Empowered Cursed Pearls?
    The best way to get your first Empowered Cursed Pearls for the event is to follow the main quests that Janus Fox is offering and complete the first two progress bars of the event. These two progress bars give you the first 5 Empowered Cursed Pearls. Enough to unlock all 4 areas of Castle Ravencaw and doing your first Dragan run. After that, opening Amphorae or the relic chests is your best way to gather more Empowered Cursed Pearls.

    Tip: Playing in groups reduces your amount of needed Empowered Cursed Pearls as only one group member has to activate the statues in Castle Ravencaw or open the portal to Dragan’s Refuge.​
    Where is the Ghastly Widow (Spider Boss)?
    The entry to the Ghastly Grave can appear randomly in all four Cursed Pearl maps (Gloomy Pastures, Ironforest at Night, Sulfur Desert, Dragan’s Excavation Site) after defeating Cadoc the Belligerent and his minions, who has a chance to spawn in those maps.​
    Where/how do you collect progress for the 3rd progress bar?

    The Raven Pearl drops from all bosses that belong to the Return of Dragan event.

    022.pngRaven Pearl
    Black as midnight with ominous marbling on it like the reflection
    of a raven's eye, fixated on its prey. This pearl intrigues and frightens
    people and many swear that the marble swirls are actually moving.
    It can be found by bosses of the Curse of the Black Knights -
    Return of Dragan event.

    Bosses are:
    • Dragan
    • Black Widow
    • Rukh (Member of the Special Force Unit)
    • Pjarn (Member of the Special Force Unit)
    • Claude (Member of the Special Force Unit)
    • Everett (Member of the Special Force Unit)
    • Vernon (Member of the Special Force Unit)
    • Dyl (Member of the Special Force Unit)
    How can I obtain “the scroll”?
    If you haven’t obtained the Mysterious Scroll during the Riot of the Rocketmen event, you have a chance to get it from an Amphora during the Dragan event or from Dragan himself.​
    Is there still a chance to complete the old Dragan event achievements?
    Some of the old Dragan achievements have been moved to the “legacy” category and they cannot be completed anymore.
    Will there be Gnob offers?
    As described above, the Gnob offers the old Dragan event unique skins.​
