    Inside Castle Ravencaw (Difficulty: Normal)

    In Castle Ravencaw, you can find four entrances to dungeons (see overview below), as well as two other entrances: one of the two leads you to Dragan himself (Dragan’s Refuge) and the other one is Castle Ravencaw but with a higher difficulty degree (Castle Ravencaw Difficult).​
    Random Monster Enchantments

    x08.png
    During the entire event you will find enemies of the category Champion which will be more powerful than the average enemy.All of them will be magically enhanced. An overview of all possible enchantments was introduced here: Patch Notes Release 155.

    Dungeons of Castle Ravencaw

    Once you are inside of Castle Ravencaw you have the chance to visit several dungeons.All of these dungeons need special key items; otherwise your character won’t be able to access them (see below).

    IconNameDescription
    x09.pngCursed PearlAvailable in in-game shop (hotkey T) - Yes
    Available from: drop from every worthy opponent in Castle Ravencaw and related dungeons.
    Purpose: Is needed as entrance fee to access the dungeons such as Dragan’s Excavation Site and to activate statues
    x10.pngCursed Pearl to Dragan’s RefugeAvailable in in-game shop (hotkey T) - Yes
    Available from: champion monsters, quests, repeatable chests
    Purpose: Is needed as entrance fee to access the dungeons Dragan’s Refuge.
    x11.pngCursed Pearl to Dragan’s Refuge (Difficult)Available in in-game shop (hotkey T) - Yes
    Available from: drop from the four champions in Castle Ravencaw (Difficult) and Festive Amphorae
    Purpose: Is needed as entrance fee to access Dragan’s Refuge in a higher difficulty degree.

    Gloomy Pastures
    Entrance fee: 30 Cursed Pearls
    This dungeon is one of the largest in the event. While there might be many enemies to defeat your character has a lot of space to maneuver around and avoid being hit. The pastures have been cursed and what were once innocent civilians are now slaves of Dragan, doomed to bake evil pastries.​

    Dark Pastry Chefs & Dark Bakery Assistants

    x12.jpg
    The chefs are pretty pissed off since you disturbed them while they are baking their evil cookies.You better be careful, these culinary experts are not the toughest enemies but they come as teams with their Dark Bakery Assistants and their rolling pins deal quite some damage!​

    Leader: Administrator Schilling
    In the upper north east corner of the Gloomy Pastures you will encounter a circle of Mindless Jack-o-Lantern Protectors and a special enemy called Administrator Schilling. The name of the leader pays homage to the owner of the YouTube Channel Spieletrend.

    The attacks of the leader are fairly easy to dodge as he only casts the spell Destruction.Tip: try to hide behind an enemy and let Administrator Schilling cast Destruction on the enemy. Any enemy that is hit by the spell will receive damage!
    x13.png
    Dungeon in the Sulfur Desert
    Entrance fee: 60 Cursed Pearls
    The soil in this dungeon is toxic and will drain your character’s life constantly. Bring your character to the outer corners of this dungeon as these are safe areas. Well, you will still encounter monsters but at least the soil is not toxic. The Slimy Sulfuric Spiders come in masses but they are rather weak, one hit should be enough to smash them. The real dangers in this dungeon are the Shadaiqaan Spider Breeders.​

    Dragan’s Excavation Site
    Entrance fee: 90 Cursed Pearls
    This dungeon is quite narrow and hold a lot of enemies, you are advised to enter it with a small group.

    Leader: Administrator Ravius
    In the upper North West corner of the dungeon you will encounter Administrator Ravius. This champion has ranged attacks and his attack speed is rather slow. Defeat the groups around him first before you try to approach him.
    x14.png


    Iron Forest at Night
    Entrance fee: 120 Cursed Pearls
    This dungeon is populated by various monsters – most notably the Troll Porters which are involved in the illegal production of cursed candy. You can see these gigantic trolls carrying evil jelly beans around the map​

    x15.png
    Leader: Administrator Andrus
    In the upper north east corner of the dungeon you will encounter Administrator Andrus. Out of all champions he is most probably the fastest when it comes to attack speed but regardless of that he is fairly easy to defeat. You have a lot of empty space to evade his attacks.

    Leader: Dragan Jr.
    Fight your way through the upper north east side of Castle Ravencaw and in the last room you will encounter Dragan Jr. He is by far not as tough as the actual Dragan but it is still advised to be cautious when you approach him.Dragan Jr. does not drop items from the Black Warlord Regalia set but he has a higher chance to drop legendary items.

    Note: All enemies that are Leaders drop more currencies and have a higher chance of dropping legendary items than any other monster during the event.​

    x16.jpg

    Dragan’s Refuge
    Entrance fee: 1 Cursed Pearl to Dragan’s Refuge
    This is the final battle ground where you will have to face boss monster Dragan the Damned. Dragan will need up to 5 seconds to reveal his final form and then he will start to attack your hero mercilessly. Your hero will not need any special essences to defeat him but stay vigilant and evade Dragan’s attacks. Once defeated, Dragan will always drop a piece of the unique set Black Warlord Regalia.

    New: Once you defeated Dragan the Damned, you can leave the refuge and go back to Castle Ravencaw instead of starting again in Kingshill.

    Note:The Black Warlord Regalia comes in three tiers: Black Squire, Black Knight and finally Black Warlord.The Black Knight and Warlord set pieces can only be obtained through crafting;

    The following upgrades are possible with the items:
    • 4 Helmets/Capes or Pauldrons of the Black Squire = 1 Helmet/Cape or Pauldron of the Black Knight
    • 4 Helmets/Capes or Pauldrons of theBlackKnight = 1 Helmet/Cape or Pauldron of the Black Warlord

    Once you have collected the Cape, Helmet and Pauldrons of the Warlord, you will receive a set bonus: +30% block rate, +30% Mana/Rage/Steam and +30% weapon damage with two-handed weapons. Since the Ranger doesn’t have any two-handed weapons, the following bonus will be awarded: +30% concentration, +20% block rate, +10% damage with longbows.​

    NameIconsDescriptionHow to obtain
    Black Squire Items (Unique) x18.pngThe set is equipped with good defensive equipment and in addition to other things improves blocking chances.
    Note: Out of the three items, the helmet drops the most frequently and the cape the least frequently.
    You receive parts of this set after defeating Dragan in Dragan’sRefuge.
    Black Knight Items (Unique) x19.pngUpgrade Level I (Upgraded): The set is equipped with strong defensive equipment and in addition to other things improves blocking chances.Can be crafted but also drop from Dragan. Should you have four identical items, for example, 4 Helmets of the Black Squire, you can upgrade these helmets on the workbench to Helmets of the Black Knight.
    Black Warlord Set (Unique) x20.pngUpgrade Level II (Upgraded): This set is equipped with much stronger defensive equipment and in addition to other things will improve your blocking chances.Can be crafted but also drop from Dragan. Should you have four identical items, for example, 4 Helmets of the Black Knight, you can upgrade these helmets on the workbench to Helmets of the Black Warlord.

    Mechanism: Reward Chests
    In front of the entrances to the dungeons you will find the event chests; each entrance has three dark chests and one wooden chest. In order to open these chests, you need to complete the quests that Agents 001, 002, 003 and 004 will give you.
    x21.png
    The dark chests will only open once and the wooden chest will open only after you have opened all three dark chests. Unlike the dark chests, the wooden chest can be opened infinite times.
    x22.png

    Leader: Jullov
    In every dungeon there is a chance that you will encounter the well-known monster Jullov. Defeat him and you will receive Jullov’s Lock-Pick which you can use to open a Burning Jack-O’-Crate. Whenever you find a Burning Jack-o’-Crate you can be sure that Jullov must be near and vice versa. Beware though, Jullov behaves like a Lernaen Hydra: the second you slay him two other of his kind will summon and once you slay one it will again be replaced by two.

    x23.png

    Jullov will be replaced by two Jullov’s Lying, Cheating Ex, which will be replaced by four Jullov’s Nit-picking Lawyers, which will be replaced by eight Jullov’s New Girlfriends. If you encounter Jullov in one of the dungeons that are only accessible during the challenges, he will drop Cursed Candy.

    (Burning) Jack-o'-Crate Chests
    Because this is a Halloween Event, there will be a new kind of chest inside the rooms: the Jack-o'-Crates. Regular Jack-o’-Crates can be opened with a simple click. The Burning Jack-O'-Crate is locked, so you will need to defeat Jullov and get Jullov’sLock Pick to open it.

    Hard mode

    You are able to enter Castle Ravencaw in a more difficult mode and explore areas which are not featured in the normal mode.

    Castle Ravencaw (Difficult)
    Entrance fee: none

    The entrance to the hard mode is located in Castle Ravencaw next to Janus Fox. Once you’ve entered the castle, you will notice that dungeons, such as the Gloomy Pastures, are not accessible anymore. Instead 4 different statues are located in all cardinal directions.By clicking on the statues, your hero will summon mighty champions. Note that your character will need to use Cursed Pearls to activate the statues. Every champion has a chance to drop a key (Cursed Pearl to Dragan's Refuge (Difficult)) to Dragan’sRefuge. The entrance to Dragan’s Refuge (Difficult) is located centrally on the map Castle Ravencaw (Difficult). All of the four champions drop Cursed Candy (only when the challenges are happening) that your hero needs to complete Dragan’s Challenges (see Dragan’s Challenges).

    Like the regular Dragan’s Refuge this is the final battleground where you will have to face boss monster Dragan the Damned. However, the difficulty degree is noticeably higher.Note: Speaking of higher, the chances that the pauldrons or the cape of the Black Squire will drop here are higher than in the normal difficulty degree.​

    Mini Events - Dragan’s Challenges 1-4
    Required Character Level: 20-50

    During the entire event, your heroes will be able to complete four mini challenges that will be activated on certain dates (see timetable below). Dragan’s Challenges are mini events that run along the main event. Each of the four challenges only lasts 3 days and will only be activated once. Each of the challenges has a different progress bar and thus also different rewards. In order to fill the progress bar of a mini challenge you need to collect Cursed Candy. You can review your personal progress, the runtime of the mini challenge and the rewards at any time in the event overview window (hotkey: E).

    IconNameDescription
    x34.pngCursed CandyThis item is needed to progress in the challenges.Each time your character picks up Cursed Candy a boost is given that increases your character’s attack speed +0,5 % for 5 minutes.Note: Cursed Candy will only be available when a challenge is active.

    How to participate in the challenges
    The challenges will automatically be activated on the listed dates (see timetable), all you have to do is enter Castle Ravencaw in the difficult difficulty degree. Once you entered the castle you will notice that new entrances are available. Let’s start with the first one:​

    Challenge #1 - Professor Jullov’s Laboratory
    Entrance fee: 100 Cursed Pearls
    Recommended group size: can be done solo

    Enter the dungeon and defeat Professor Jullov to make an end to him and his failed experiments! The dungeon is not the widest, ranged classes should be careful not to be pushed to a dead end or corner otherwise they might be overwhelmed by the monster crowds. Cursed Candy will drop from Professov Jullov and any champion in this dungeon.​

    This dungeon is wide enough to escape big groups of monsters in case the situation gets too heated.Close to the Abandoned Village you will encounter champion monster Bobbus the Cyclops.

Bobbus is immune against any stun or slowing attacks, therefore do not count on attacks such as Iron Brow. Cursed Candy will drop from champion monsters and any skeletal enemy – if it has flesh, it won’t drop Cursed Candy, except Bobbus of course​

    Challenge #3 - Black Knights’ Battleground

    Recommended group size: at least 2 players

    In this dungeon you have the option to battle against the elite of the Black Vanguard.Twelve Devastating Black Knights are positioned in a circle and are waiting to fight against you. Unfortunately they do not drop any Cursed Candy but it is advised to defeat them and clear the space before you click on the gong and start the monster waves to appear. Any attack that waiting Devastating Black Knights receive will trigger them to attack you and the last thing you need during a monster wave is another powerful champion attacking you!

    Once you hit a knight he will leave his position and attack you. Make sure you only attack and attract one knight at a time, each of them is immune against stuns and slowing attacks which makes them not easy to defeat.

    Click on the gong to start the monster waves. From now on you will be attacked by at least 5 monster waves before the final leader appears. Every monster that is coming from the wave has a chance to leave Cursed Candy behind. The final leader will drop it guaranteed.

    Click on the Imposing Statues of Dragan to summon the Black Knight Captain and the Black Knight Trainer. You will need 35 Cursed Pearls to summon each of the champions. Unlike the Devastating Black Knights the Trainer and the Captain are not immune to attacks that stun or freeze them. Both champions will drop Cursed Candy.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    After I have defeated Dragan, I didn't receive the items I wanted. What can I do?
    As soon as Dragan has been defeated, he will not die. Instead he will briefly disappear from the boss room Dragan’s Refuge. Leave the room too and as soon as you have the “Cursed Pearl to Dragan’s Refuge”, you can re-enter the boss room and recommence your fight with Dragan. You can keep repeating this as often as you like. But of course, only as long as the event lasts.​

    What happens with the Cursed Pearls after the event?
    Should you have some left over after the event, they will remain in your inventory. We recommend keeping the Cursed Pearls. They will most likely be needed again in future events.

    Why do I need Draken?
    This is our event currency. You can only win Draken during the event. They are useful in the game, since the event handler named Gnobsometime drops by Kingshill and sells special items which can only be bought with Draken.

    I can't defeat Dragan. It is way too difficult. Are there any tips?
    We recommend playing the event in a group. But should you play alone, just remember – always keep moving. Try to deactivate the Dragon Breath’s source of power as it can drain lots of life from you. And at the same time also make sure to defend yourself against Dragan... equip yourself well for the battle by putting on strong pieces of armor or by fetching reinforcements, for example, in the city, to briefly increase your life force. That way you will be able to stand up longer against him. Make sure to stay calm and with the will to carry on, you will most certainly banish the event boss Dragan and be able to score yourself valuable items.

    Is there a chance to get any items from the set Sargon's Terrifying_Armor from the SummonedSargon the Terrible?
    No, unfortunately not. The set pieces are currently not available for level 50 yet. only level 40 and level 45, therefore they have not been included in this event.

    What about items such as Sargon’s Remains and the Shadows, can we delete them?
    No, please keep the for now.​
