    What's with the drop of those weapon fragments. You can do 30 or so runs in each map and get nothing from the bosses. It feels like we're wasting time and resources with this.
    No stones from the wooden chests either, did the rep quest twenty times and still no stone...

    Simply put, the weapon and ring are obviously a teaser to keep players coming back for more; along with the promise that this event would happen more frequently. I seriously doubt the intent is not for anyone to get this on the first go around (except for those blessed by the Gaming Godz with extreme luck.)

    Also 30 runs is nothing in a 2 week event. It's a grind fest. For those willing to put up with that (which I am not so inclined) possibly luck could be influenced by determination. I say possibly since we won't know until it is over. It is equally possible (probable) that the event is hard coded for failure.

    Luck be with ye,

    Come on everyone, let's be honest with ourselves here..., when it comes to raw damage and if you don't factor the potential of a bonus set, the Dragan's weapon outclasses Bearach's tier 3 by a bit, and there's people that has gone through Bearach fatal more than a thousand times to get it, some had gone the same amount of times without luck, so, were you really expecting the weapon parts to be handed out that easy?, I thought we all were aware of how things go in this place...

    Since they replaced the dragan set with crap, it would be a great idea to give something good to players that is easy to get, you know, as a way to distract us from the new changes. That was my expectation anyway. But no, they delayed the event to add that stupid thing called Dragan's "Protective" armor, lowered the event duration, lowered the drop chance...Most new players now are forced to collect as many drakens as possible to buy the old set (which is still expensive btw) because BP made a horrible mistake and replaced it. Bearach's weapon?
    You can farm q4 anytime you want, that's the difference, however, many PW uniques are bad so it won't matter if something better comes up.

    Problem is, their idea for "good news" is that they're gonna bring this event "more often".

    And that was your flaw, we know BP fairly well up to this point, my way of thinking with them is: expect nothing, or expect the worse, then there's only 2 possibilities, you either are proven right, or you're up for a nice surprise. If you expect "something" out of them you're 95% headed into a dissapointment every release, and that's the sad truth.

    Maybe BP should make 100% drop of weapon frags so you guys don't have to put any effort to get, just get it easy.
    If you want something you'll have to grind for it, that's the basic of mmo's, most of them. So I do think drop for me personally is feir of weapon frags, I only got 1 but with time I'll get all of them eventually.

    So let me get this straight.We get max 1 fragment for the weapon meaning that we can only craft 1x weapon during this dragan event and it will be a lvl 1 weapon.Then we need to wait for next dragan event to get another lvl 1 weapon.We need 16x lvl 1 weapons to get the lvl 3 weapon.Dragan comes like 1-2 times a year meaning that we will need 8 years to get all the 16 lvl 1 weapons to get the lvl 3 one.Is this a sick joke?

    Same goes for the tier 3 ring.We get 2 lvl 1 now, and we will need 14 more so at least 4-5 years of playing dragan events to get the tier 3 ring lol.

    If this wont be fixed we wont be even able to get these tier 3 items at all and will happen like the old items from the defender's set lol.We kept those for a few years and then we had to melt them because they were useless.

    So are we going to get the lvl 3 weapon/wand/bow when we combine those 4 parts or just a level 1 weapon/wand/bow and then we must wait quite a few more years to get the other parts required to get it to lvl 3?

    Correct. Though, it's not ok when it goes too far. Some people did 50 runs in each map and got nothing, wasting all those pearls, that's not enough? Come on, it is an event and it doesn't come often. On the other hand, if everyone could get them easily, many people won't have a reason to play the event again, so yeah I get it. I'll give you an example. Gnob sells the old set for 19k...so, we have to forget the rings, hammer, shield, mount, dyes etc and farm drakens for a year to spend it on something the old players aquired in a month because the new "protective" set is bad. So, you know, it's not worth to strugle if there's not a good reason for it.

    I did also around 60 runs, still nothing. And I was shocked when I saw this video on Youtube, he got 3 fragments already.

    And weren't we saying that this event would be good for twinks?

    Yes he is.
    Remember that Dragan contest?
    80% of the winners were twinks.

    As far as I know there were two winners and the other one was level 17.
    Also twink level 4 was second and twink level 17 was third.

    True, but Harra's was within the spirit of the competition as opposed to twinks.

    I never said anything about him ... but we were talking about twinks and Dragan event.

    BTW ... there is one saying : A wise man always checks the facts before says something.
    I was curious if you are a wise man and check if i am telling the truth ... well ... it looks you are. :p :p

    Nice catch. I wanted to see the other two. I remembered Harra and the LVL 17, but I didn't remember the runners up.
