    Many players were asking when Sargon would return, finally he is back!
    I wasn't on the test server for some time but today this one was active:


    Couldn't test it because sometime later there was maintenance.

    The rewards from the progress bars are as expected: amphora keyss, spirit stones, spirit guards, radiant gem bags and so on. There were also chests with different Sargon equipment, don't know if it's anything good.

    Could be nice having Sargon back or it could be a total disaster, especially for "
    older" players who played the older Sargon events (was this one of the first events ever on dso?).

    For who is interested the 2nd progress bar:
    And the third:

    Uhuuuu! More Essences!!!

    It is pointless to make more comments for pathetic progress bars rewards...

    Does this mean that they are actually changing the White Light Essence so that it can be distinguished from the White Essence of Vigor???

    And are the White Light Essence, White Antidotial Essence, White <any other type> Essence, etc going to be sold for gold like the White Essense of Vigor (which we are now burning thru by the 10s of thousands every day)???

    nice set OMEGALUL, devs were really creative right there .. it should be renamed to "Shadow crack-smoking set" since that's the thing that most players need now - there are only players which smoke crack since all other players already quit this dead game

    With regards to the Sargon set, here's a few considerations to take into mind:
    • Each usage of a movement skill gives 1 stack (even if you hit thin air)
    • Each stack lasts for 2 minutes and is refreshed with a new stack
    • If you die you lose the stacks
    • Cooldown is 120 seconds, during which you cannot collect any stacks
    • The andermagic explosion is a nice AOE centered around the player...
      • ...except players do not have skills that break andermagic resist, so you're better off spamming your other skills for damage
      • ...and if you're a ranged character trying to escape a killing blow, you cannot redirect the damage onto a targeted zone, so it's pretty useless
    In short, I've basically concluded from playing around with this set for a day or two that it's mostly intended for melee characters, particularly tanky types. I do have to give them credit on the SW appearance though. I really love the cute hat. :oops:

    If peeps want to see the set in action, you can do so on my most recent live stream (just jump to 25:25, where I start showing how the set bonus works).

    Sargon's set really sucks!

    This is the only lv 120 bonus set you drop on the map.

    What's the point of wasting time? look for a set made of nothing up to 8/8 objects, considering the useless and the fact of losing, the bonuses of other unique, the sum of which is even better, than the one proposed and if nothing else they are more easily replaceable with something better in less time.


    Hope the damage set is not the same!

    While they continue with stupid things, every time there are fewer players ... Why don't they close the game and that's it ... If today their state is miserable ...

    The glorious memory of Sargon insulted as if he were the worst of beggars.

    This is what happens when whoever manages this stuff has no knowledge no respect.

    Incompetence can only generate filth.

    Can anyone explain the basic mechanics of the event?

    I took my "best" toon -- a Lvl45 Ranger -- to Kingshill, found Jon Sunlair ... but he doesn't interact with my toon. I can and did enter Stillwater Bay at night, picked up a few coffee beans, 9 event progress from neat amphorae, 100 light essence also from neat amphorae, and various Shadow Portal Fragments from the portals I destroyed, but ... how do I combine the Fragments into a usable Shadow Portal?

    Can't be crafted on the workbench, and Jon continues to ignore me.

    Are there supposed to be event quests?

    Is this event only for level 100 players who've completed all of the CE content released to-date?

    I wouldn't be surprised if that is the case :D
    Not a big deal ... nothing to get there anyway.

    I don't know if it's only for level 100, since I was playing in on a level 100 SW. However, depending on whether or not you've completed all your quests, you will get a different 2nd form of Sargon. If you don't finish your quests, you get an EZ second form of Sargon. If you do, it's... a bit of a pain.

    I will check later on other toons if I have time. But the structure of it is this:
    • Grab coffee beans from worthy monsters (no need to waste a huge amount of time on farming tons, event maps drop them too)
    • Enter Stillwater Bay at Night to farm Portal Fragments. Collect 4 and turn them in to Jon Sunlair for a portal to the Shadowfort.
    • Enter the Shadowfort, kill 3 leaders and 1 sentinel to open Sargon's Throne Room
    • Kill Sargon
