    Official Walkthrough

    1.png


    Quick Overview:

    Required levels15-50 (see notice below)
    Duration2 weeks
    Please note: You can play the event on your own (single), but it might be way easier to play in a group. Some of the challenges of this event are quite the feat – consider yourself warned!


    What’s new in this edition?
    • The event will last 2 weeks – on the other hand, there are only two mini challenges (don’t be sad – this means that Dragan is visiting us more regularly in the future!)
    • We have extended the minimum level of participationto level 15 (the Painful and Excruciating difficulties, however, are kept for seasoned heroes levels 30 and 50 respectively).
    • We have added brand new daily quests for this event only! Make sure you visit Janus Fox regularly during this event as he’ll be handling different quests with some rewards on top!
    • Removed all Halloween references – and changed them with tons of candy!
    • Added new Dragan weapons, a new set of equipment and a badass mount!*
    • We have also created a Dragan’s Grim Signet Ring (Tier 3)
    • There’s a new big boss to defeat: the Ghastly Black Widow! Beware those with arachnophobia!
    * So where is the old Dragan set? The old Dragan set has not disappeared from the game. Somehow Gnob has got a full assortment of these pieces in his store and he will be selling them, either in the form of Lucky Spheres but also as Limited Offers (fixed price) every now and then. Stay tuned to our social media to catch those!​

    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.
    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.

    *IMPORTANT* The crafting stones for all the Dragan’s weapons are as random drops within the wooden chests.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What happens with the Cursed Pearls after the event? Shall I keep them?

    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. They are useful in the game, since the event handler named Gnobhas a special store at 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 Dragan 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 for level 40 and level 45, therefore they have not been included in this event.
    Go forth and conquer, heroes of Dracania!​
    Best tregards,
    Your Drakensang Online Team
