    Daily Quest
    Participate in and complete your Daily Quest for a special reward.

    How to Access:
    Upon logging in for first time of the day, a notification signal drops down the left corner of the screen. Click to open. To access your daily quest after that, open the Quest window (hotkey "Q") and click the tab titled "Daily quest."

    [​IMG]
    Each day, you are presented with 3 possible quest rewards:
    • 250 Knowledge Books (not available for those who have attained the current max Knowedge tree attribute)
    • Coin rewards
    • Magic/Extraordinary Equipment
    Choose 1 to activate. View you quest progress after you select a daily quest. Once completed, you will be shown a notification and automatically credited your reward.

    Here is a sample quest window:

    [​IMG]

    When will I get my next Daily Quest?
    Daily quest options always reset at UTC 12:00 AM. A countdown timer can be found at the bottom of the quest window.

    How does the "Reshuffle" work?
    For 80 Andermant, reshuffle the quests and possible rewards. All rolls are random so be warned that the same options may reappear after a reshuffle. Players with premium can reshuffle for free.

    Quest Possibilities:
    Quests are either PvP- or PvE-related:
    • Finish 2 quests
    • Finish 6 quests
    • Win 2 battles
    • Win 6 battles
    • Defeat 15 worthy players
    • Defeat 45 worhty players
    • Kill 100 worthy monsters
    • Kill 300 worthy monsters
    • Craft 1 item
    • Craft 3 items
    Note: All crafting dailies will not reward gold.

    For the quest "Defeat 15 worthy players," how are wins counted?
    Defeat players no more than 5 level below you in the wilderness or in the arena. Kills made by your group-mates also count toward your total. You will stop getting "defeat" credit if you kill the same player more than 5 times. The penalty will last for the rest of the day (until you receive a new daily log-in bonus).

    Common Technical Problem:

    Why don't I get any new daily quests? It says "New daily quests are being loaded... New daily quests available in 00h 00min."
    The issue can sometimes occur when you change your local PC time. If you sync your computer time to the correct local time, the daily quests should appear/load normally again. You can find your time/date setting by right clicking your clock on the task bar and selecting time/date settings.

    Repair Weapons and Armor

    If you find that your weapons or armor have been damaged or broken from battle, the Weaponsmith and Armor Artisan can both help repair your items. Dying in battle (except in the arena) will cost an additional 20% penalty to durability on all items worn (if you choose the free revive option).

    Broken gear?
    Broken items will be rendered useless and all bonuses from that object will be ineffective in battle. A warning sign in the top right corner indicates a broken item. In the Inventory, broken items are highlighted in red.

    [​IMG]

    How do I fix my weapons and armor?
    Don't just throw away you items if they are broken, get them fixed to max durability. Locate a Weaponsmith and choose "Repair Item."

    [​IMG]
    Then, choose whether to repair just one item by dropping that item into the open slot and clicking "Repair" or to repair all items in your inventory by clicking "Repair Everything."

    [​IMG]
    It is always a good idea to double-check that your items have max durability before leaving.

    Once in a new moon a malicious cult of witches, the witches of the North, meet on the top of mount Blackborg to perform a ritual of black magic, whereby they sacrifice an innocent virgin to a fairy queen.

    [​IMG]

    Don’t be fooled by the term fairy queen! This particular one goes by the name Karabossa and is most certainly not a serene and peaceful fairy but a horrid and evil creature. In exchange for the virgin as sacrifice, Karabossa is promising to award the witches with the renewal of their lost youth.
    Malyssa, the local witch from Kingshill, is counting on you to stop the ritual and, if you’re so inclined, safe the virgin.

    The way to Blackborg

    From the Full Moon Event you might already be familiar with realm fragments. Approach Thabo, the laidback realm magician, in the cities and he will create realm paths to Blackborg for you. Alternatively you can purchase realm paths to Blackborg from the shop in exchange for Andermant.

    Blackborg by day

    In order to stop the ritual, the heroes have to prepare for the night when the ritual is taking place. As the name of the event and the beginning sentence of this guide states, the ritual is only performed during the time of the new moon.

    [​IMG]

    Quest “Fairy Wood”

    Accept the quest from NPC Malyssa and enter the woods of Blackborg. You need to collect fairy wood, which only happens to grow in Blackborg. Defeat the enchanted Root Chreatures to receive fairy wood.
    This quest is just used for explanation. You can collect the fairy wood without any quest.

    [​IMG]

    Blackborg by night (Event)


    When the new moon has appeared in the sky, the witches gather around to perform the ritual.
    Travel to Blackborg via a realm path and meet Malyssa at the start of the map. NPC Shady John is also present in the map and is offering you the following items to aid your journey to disturb the ritual:

    NPC Malyssa has four quests for you to complete:

    [​IMG]

    Quest “Eternal youth”

    Seek out the witches who are about to sacrifice the virgin. To play the Hold Ground Quest you need to talk to the virgin.
    When battling the approaching monsters, make sure to defend the virgin as you will fail the quest if she dies. One of the enemies will be Karabossa's Icy Fairy Minion who will bestow upon you the buff “Fairy power”. (Repeatable)
    [​IMG]
    Quest “Fairy Fire”
    In order to progress in the event bar you have to burn some of the collected fairy wood in the witches’ cauldrons found all over Blackborg. The event progress comes in form of fairy fire. After having collected certain amounts of fairy fire, you will be rewarded with magical scrolls which you need to have, if you want to encounter Karabossa.

    This quest serves as an explanation and to complete it you have to burn the fairy fire in Malyssa’s cauldron.

    [​IMG]

    Quest “Karabossa”

    Follow the course of the map until you see the Fairy Ring (a magical circle of mushrooms) and use the magical scroll to banish Karabossa. Beware hero: Without the buff Fairy Power you will not be able to harm Karabossa and will be pushing daisies faster than you can imagine.
    (Once you have defeated Karabossa, you’ll need to exit Blackborg and re-enter the map before you can confront her without the quest.)


    Quest “The fairy Plague”
    Defeat 700 monsters on the map of Blackborg to complete this quest.
    (Repeatable)

    EVENT GUIDE: ATTACK ON WERIAN’S SANCTUARY

    [​IMG]
    In every major hub of Dracania (except Grimford) your hero can encounter a new NPC, the Prophet. As soon as the Prophet is being approached, the lighting around your hero changes to a mysterious magenta tone.
    [​IMG]
    The Prophet has several quests for you with most of them having the goal to collect trophies, which you can get by defeating worthy opponents. Once you complete the quests, you will be rewarded with a teleport item – the scroll of punctuality

    Among the quest rewards you will also receive items, which will be useful throughout the event and will ease you to succeed in the event.

    The majority of the Prophet’s quests are repeatable and thus the rewards can be received indefinitely.


    ABOUT THE PROPHETS QUEST REWARDS
    Can alternatively all be purchased from the in-game shop

    [​IMG]
    Scroll of Punctuality
    Immediately upon right-click you will be teleported to Werian’s Sanctuary, which is now about to be besieged.
    Note: Once you right-click on the scroll, you will be teleported immediately, there is no other notification window popping up (will be fixed next time the event is on)

    [​IMG]
    Oath of Balance
    This item will allow you to call a mercenary Ranger to aid you throughout the battle against the monsters.
    Oath of Power
    This item will allow you to seek help from a mercenary Dragon Knight, to fight next to you against the monsters.
    Oath of Knowledge
    This item will allow you to call a mercenary Spell Weaver, who will aid you in the battle against the monsters.

    About mercenaries in general:
    Once called for help, you cannot position or control the mercenaries and unlike the wolves of the ranger, the mercenaries will not follow your hero, mercenaries have their own intelligence and will attack foes upon sight.



    Life Force Prayer
    [​IMG]
    On the map you will find a shrine where you can active a healing source, once every time you enter the map of the besieged Werian’s Sanctuary. The source will heal your entire party and the NPC Fighter Anselm.

    Slowness Enchantment
    [​IMG]
    This item can be used during the battle and will slowdown
    the monster mobs. This enchantment can only be used once every time you enter the map of the besieged Werian’s Sanctuary

    Good to know:
    Mercenaries, the life force prayer and the slowness enchantment can only be used once per map.
    The same rule applies for the mercenaries, there can only be one Dragon Knight, one Ranger and one Spell weaver mercenary on the map. This also applies when you are entering the map with a group. The mercenaries cannot be called once per player, the same goes for the life force prayer and the slowness enchantment.

    ENTERING THE BESIEGED WERIAN’S SANCTUARY

    Upon using the Scroll of Punctuality, you will enter Werian’s Sanctuary and will discover that the area has been under heavy attack and is about to be invaded by waves of monsters. Talk to NPC Fighter Anselm to start the main quest and prepare yourself for an intensive battle.

    [​IMG]
    You will be attacked by nine waves of monsters in total and you goal is to keep NPC Fighter Anselm alive throughout the battle. If he falls in battle, then you will fail and you will have to start all over again. However, should you fail, stay in the map, as you can restart the monster waves simply by reaccepting the quest of NPC Fighter Anselm. However, if you want to use the help of the mercenaries and the shrines you will have to re-enter the map. Successful heroes will be rewarded with Insignia’s of Merits, which will allow you to progress through the event

    During the battle you can use the Prophet’s quest rewards – the oaths on the blue, red and green banner around you to receive help from the mercenaries. The mercenaries will aid you until they fall in battle.

    [​IMG]


    The life force prayer can be activated by clicking on the priest’s shrine on your left and the slowness enchantment can be activated by clicking on the scholar’s shrine on your right.

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    The healing prayer will work on your entire
    party and also heal NPC Fighter Anselm, so use it wisely brave hero!


    FINAL EVENT REWARD

    The final reward, once you have filled the entire progress bar, is an armor piece called – the Defender’s Belt. The complete set is a collectors piece and will be made available each time this event will occur.

    [​IMG]

    About the belt: The belt has the attribute 20% higher piece of armor value. This bonus also applies on the stats of Cyanit gems that are being attached to the item. So for example: let’s imagine you insert 5 x +10 Cyanites, then their total value is boosted by 20%
    5 x +10 x 20% = +60

    Instead of + 50, you now will get +60.

    PS: The set has no random values and no minus stats

    Tips

    [​IMG]

    The event is preferably played in groups, one hero alone will find the event quite demanding and challenging. Therefore, please team up! If you still want to achieve progress for the event you can always buy Insignias of Merit in the in-game shop.


    Enjoy the event and good luck,
    the sanctuary’s fate is in your hands!

    Allogeneous Count Count

    Degree of Difficulty
    The event can be completed as single player but we highly recommend teaming up. A maximum of five players can enter the event simultaneously. The general degree of difficulty will be scaled to the number of players joining the event; however, a party of players will be able to control crowds of monsters more easily in general.

    [​IMG]

    Background
    After having successfully fought off the Attack on Werian Sanctuary, rumors spread that the Prophet had a vision that Kingshill would be the next target. Some say, that this time, the attack will come from several sides and that a mysterious puppet master is pulling the strings of the different enemy factions. Whether or not this is true, one fact is certain: Kingshill is in danger and is about to be attacked. Only you and your party can prevent the fall of Kingshill.

    [​IMG]
    Start the Event
    Find the Prophet in Kingshill. It's quite simple to recognize the Prophet: as soon as you approach him, the lighting around your character will turn into a deep shade of fuchsia. Speak with the Prophet and he will offer you two quests: the main quest For Kingshill! and a repeatable side quest called The Right Time. For the latter, you will need to collect 100 battle trophies, which will drop from worthy opponents (monsters that either have a higher level than your character’s level or a level of up to five levels lower than your character’s level). Completing the quest will earn you a Scroll of Punctuality. The scroll will allow you to enter the actual event at the exact moment Kingshill is attacked.

    [​IMG]
    Rebuilding Kingshill
    During the event, evil forces will launch multiple heavy attacks against Kingshill . The invasion will have an impact on the pristine appearance of Kingshill; buildings will be destroyed and walls will indicate that desolation and warfare took place. A true hero does not only know how to slay, but he also knows how to rebuild. The tiny, yet diligent, builder kobold Pip has two quests to offer: Rebuilding and At the End of the Rainbow.

    For the quest Rebuilding, you will be sent to a location where you will have to collect building materials. The location is determined by the level of your character (look at the list below). The material that you will have to collect depends on the region to which Pip sends you. For example, if the flora of the location features a forest, it is highly likely that you will have to collect wood, if however, the location is a frosty mountain, the material might be stone. Do not be surprised if you find Kobold Barrels at the end of rainbows along your journey, after all you just accepted a quest from a kobold! Completing the quest will earn you 100 Insignias of Merit. Insignias of Merit are needed to fill the progress bar during this event.

    Character Level = Location
    10-18 = Hagastove Grotto
    19-27 = Eternal Grove
    28-32 = Dragon Caverns & Hidden Sanctum
    30-35 = Hailstone Mountains
    36-39 = Mount Suvius
    40-43 = Gleaming Mountains
    44-45 = Stalgard

    Some kobold barrels will be empty if….
    -you do not have the quests of NPC Pip active
    -if you are in an area that is not equivalent to your level (see above)

    The quest At the End of the Rainbow is similar to the quest The Right Time; slay worthy opponents and collect the battle trophies. Pip will reward you with a Kobold Staff that allows you to crack open Kobold Barrels, which you can find at the end of rainbows. The stacks of building materials that you can find in the barrels always have 25 pieces.

    Main Quest: For Kingshill!
    As soon as you have acquired a Scroll of Punctuality, simply right-click the scroll, the notification window will pop up with a short description of the event and will allow you to enter the event map.

    You have the chance to enter two slightly different versions of the invasion. The first version focuses on the quest For Kingshill! and the second version focuses on a new quest called Kingshill in Dire Straits!. There is a 75% chance that your character will start in the map that follows the quest For Kingshill! and, logically, there is a 25% chance that your character will first start in the map that follows the new quest Kingshill in Dire Straits!.

    When following the course of For Kinghill!, the town has not yet been conquered. You can still prevent the invasion, but for that you will have to defend four of Drakensang Online's known NPCs from the hordes of monsters; Captain Gregory Winbold, Father Fidelis, Chancellor Brett Aylwin and Robert Rampage. Open the map and you will realize that the NPCs are scattered around all parts of Kingshill. The NPCs can be found standing close to four exits. Therefore, you can assume that the monster hordes will invade from the exit closest to the NPC. For example, when you have to defend Captain Gregory Windbold, the monsters will most likely enter from the Swerdfield Pastures. Father Fidelis will most likely face monster hordes coming from the Catacombs, etc.
    [​IMG]
    You will start by defending Captain Gregory Winbold, only once you have defeated the attacking waves of monsters and the captain is still alive, will you be able to continue to the next NPC, in this case Father Fidelis, and so on.

    Quest: Kingshill in Dire Straits!
    As soon as you enter the map of Kingshill, four representatives of the Alliance will be awaiting you. Depending on your character's class, one of the four NPCs will offer you the quest Kingshill in Dire Straits!. In the pictured example, Cornelius Remin is addressing your character since the character is a Spellweaver. When following the course of quest Kingshill in Dire Straits!, the town has already fallen into the hands of the enemy and the monster hordes are already present there. This means that you will have to rid the streets of monsters from inside the town, but at least you can rest assured that there will not be any monsters coming through the exit gates anymore. However, you will have to face the former monarch and now, undead and fearsome, Heredur. Upon completing the quest and making the streets of Kingshills safe again, you will be rewarded with an equipment chest. This chest always contains a legendary piece of equipment for you character. Steam Mechanicus will receive equipment from Chancellor Brett Aylwin; Spellweavers will receive equipment from Father Fidelius; Rangers will receive equipment from Robert Rampage; and Dragonknights will receive equipment from Captain Gregory Winbold. The enchantments of the items are always randomly attributed but negative enchantments are not. The look of the equipment is unique and if you paid attention, you will have already noticed some NPCs carrying them around during the present invasion. For the full details about the items, please take a look at the pictures below.

    Good to Know
    Out of all NPCs that you have to assist in battle, only Father Fidelis is totally defenseless. The other three NPCs know how to give monsters a taste of their steel! Despite that keep in mind that NPCs do not heal.

    You can decrease the difficulty of the battle by calling brothers-in-arms for help; all across the map you will find spots with banners which are highlighted by colorful visual effects; red stands for Dragonknights, green stands for Rangers and blue stands for Spellweavers. If you have Oaths of Power/Balance/Knowledge, you can call a brother-in-arms for help. The brothers-in-arms come in three out of four Drakensang Online character classes (Dragonknight, Ranger, Spellweaver).

    All Oaths can be purchased from the in-game shop or can be found in event amphorae. The Dragonknight brother-in-arms will even follow your character. You do not need to control the brothers-in-arms, they have an intelligence of their own, but you can try to protect them and make the most use out of their help. Once defeated by a monster, a brother-in-arms cannot be revived or called again. Only one brother-in-arms can be called from a banner, even if multiple players are present in a party.

    [​IMG]
    Throughout the course of the quest For Kingshill!, there is a chance that the monster Morphing Stone will pay you a visit. The visit is not unannounced; upon the Morphing Stone’s arrival, a text will show up on your screen and notify you. When this happens you are advised to locate the monster and slay it immediately. The Morphing Stone is a heavy fellow and certainly not the fastest, but should he ever reach one of the NPCs, even the brave Robert Rampage will be pushing daisies faster than he can wield his own weapon.

    Should one of the NPCs die during the battle, the quest will fail but do not worry, you can always retake the quest. You will not have to start at the beginning; you will simply start at the NPC that was defeated.

    Once you have completed the quest series For Kingshill!, you will be able to play the more difficult version of the quest series. Simply talk to the Prophet and accept the quest again. The course is exactly the same as before, however, now you will not have any breaks defending all the NPCs. This means, once you have successfully defended Captain Gregory Winbold, you will have to go straight to Father Fidelis, afterwards to Chancellor Brett Aylwin and so on.

    Reusable Items
    If you still have Oaths of Power/Balance/Knowledge from the event Attack on Werian Sanctuary you can use them for the Invasion of Kingshill as well. The same does not count for the Scroll of Punctuality: the scroll will teleport you either to Kingshill or to the Werian Sanctuary, depending on which of the two locations is mentioned in the scroll’s tooltip description.

    Some kobold barrels will be empty if….
    • You do not have the quests of NPC Pip active
    • If you are in an area that is not equivalent to your level
    Team Drakensang Online wishes you a successful event and, of course, lots of fun! – For Kingshill!

    [​IMG]

    SetUpgrade Level II (Upgraded): This set is equipped with much stronger defensive equipment and in addition to other things will improve your blocking chances.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.
    Here's an overview of the respective levels of difficulty.

    Excavation site: Easy

    Dungeon in the Sulfur Desert: Medium

    Dr. Jullov's Laboratory: Difficult

    Black Knights' Battleground: Very difficult



    Event Procedure

    As soon as you make it to the Swerdfield Pastures through the portal, there are a few exciting quests waiting you. You must first complete these quests in order to make it to the boss room Dragan‘s Refuge where you must fight the horrible Dragan.



    The Final Battle

    You can defeat Dragan on your own, but of course it is easier in a group.

    After redeeming your Victory Tokens, enter the boss room. Dragan will be there waiting for you in the middle of the map sporting his old scary look. He will transform however and will be given a new look with new skills. You can then try fighting him.
    [​IMG]
    Remember not to let the rotating lasers hit you, as they will drain a lot of life from you. You can deactivate the lasers by directing projectiles (one of Dragan’s skills) close to the Dragon Breath’s source: Simply run away from the lasers and redirect the projectiles to desired target. Stand still briefly and wait until the projectiles have deactivated the Dragon Breath. Try to get it done as quickly as possible, after a certain period of time the source of the Dragon Breath will reactivate again.

    Dragan isn't easy to defeat. He is a very strong opponent. But with a little bit of determination and some guts, you can do it. Try always to keep moving so that you aren't an easy target. After you have successfully defeated Dragan, there's a chance that he might drop a few valuable items (See item list).



    What is new about the event?

    Close to Dragan, you can find a Helmet of a Black Squire, a Cape of a Black Squire and Pauldrons of a Black Squire. Dragan will definitely drop one of the items of the Black Squire and he can also drop some additional items. Once you have collected 4 Helmets, Pauldrons or Capes, you can upgrade them on the workbench in the city. Upgrading will only work however when you have four identical items (e.g. 4 Helmets of the Black Squire, etc.). The items are based on your level. For example, if you are a level 10 player, you won’t receive any level 30 items.

    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 the Black Knight = 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.

    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 (weak, strong, etc.) 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 Gnob sometime 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.

    Sargon's Soul still lives on. Can I assume that he will rise again?
    If we tell you now, we will spoil all the fun. ;) No, joking aside, whether and how Sargon will find his way back in the game, we do not know yet. We know however that Sargon is a very popular character in the game. We won’t let him get away that easily … there are however no specific plans just yet. So keep posted!

    The Jesters

    gamblers.jpg

    A group of NPC’s stand in Kingshill. They are known as the Jesters - Ballerino, Arlekin and Zampano. These artistic fellows can be found on the fairgrounds. All three of them are jolly and playful characters but no one really knows what is hidden behind their masks!

    The Jesters will allow you to win useful consumables, precious gems, special emotes and hoards of gold and Andermant. The Jesters do not provide any enchanted equipment items (improved, magic, extraordinary or legendary). A number of items will exclusively be available from the Jester, for example, the following emote and jewels:

    ic1.png
    Emote: Coin Toss
    Your character tosses a coin

    ic2.png
    Small Accelerating Jewel
    2% faster travel speed
    to be equipped in: Feet
    Combine 3 small accelerating jewels to create 1 large accelerating jewel,
    Combine 3 large accelerating jewels to create 1 huge accelerating jewel.


    ic3.png
    Small Equipment Fortifying Jewel
    20,0% higher armor value on this item
    to be equipped in: Torso
    Combine 3 small equipment fortifying jewels to create 1 large equipment fortifying jewel
    Combine 3 large equipment fortifying jewels to create 1 huge equipment fortifying jewel.

    How does the jester work, how can I play?
    Approach the Jester NPC, speak with him and open the interface. You can place a certain amount of gold or andermant on one of the 8 slots via drag and drop. A reward is kept hidden behind each of the 8 symbols round. The rewards change with every round but with a little luck you can win an Andermant Treasure Chest of Legend: This chest can contain a jackpot of 1 million Andermant.​

    Right next to the gambling pool you will find the winning history, which lists all the previous wins from all the players that are trying their luck with this jester.​

    How much Gold or Andermant can I bring into play per round?
    • 1 Gold
    • 5 Gold
    • 40 Andermant
    • 200 Andermant
    Your chances of winning depend on which amount and currency you bring into play: 1 Gold holds the lowest chances and 200 Andermant the highest. Andermant always holds higher chances of winning compared to Gold. Having said that, every reward can be won, even the 1 Million Andermant Jackpot, regardless whether you bet 1 Gold, 5 Gold, 40 Andermant or 200 Andermant.​

    What is the maximum amount that one can use at the jester?
    The maximum amount is 200 Andermant and you can bring only one amount into play per round. You can only choose one of the eight slots per round for the amount.​

    Is there a chance that one does not win anything?
    No, you will always be rewarded but the value of the reward can differ tremendously in rarity.​

    Official Walkthrough:
    The Return of Dragan (Halloween 2014)

    [​IMG]

    Introduction
    Dragan revives the undead and tries to destroy Dracania with the help of Sargon’s dead body. Ghosts are seen in Kingshill. Jon Sunlair suspects Dragan behind all this - though the revival of the dead is, technically, a "Sargon matter".

    A hero is needed! You’re sent to Toniosha Starkhammer because she is forming a group of heroes committed to fighting Dragan. At the moment, Jon Sunlair, Toniosha and Janus Fox are part of the group - and she wants you to join!

    In Castle Ravencaw, Tonioscha and Janus Fox gained some ground and are holding the first entrance hall. While Janus Fox has the player sabotage Dragans Army systematically and kill his Seargents, Tonioscha wants two things: Sargon and Dragan dead, yet again.

    Janus tries to foil Dragan's plans to bring back Sargon's army of dead. Dragan has a way to revive the dead, but not to control them. To do that, he needs to have Sargons dead body as well. Thus, Sargons body is controlled by Dragan and will challenge the heroes in the new dungeon, together with Heredur (Ghastly Grave).

    In the end, you – the hero - can defeat the master behind it all, Dragan!

    Quick Overview

    Required levels: 1-45
    Duration:3 weeks
    Number of Quests: 16
    Please notice: The event is playable from level 1 on but of course you need to go through the tutorial in order to play it. You can play the event on your own (single), but it might be easier to play in a group.
    Non-Player Character (NPC)

    Next to Jon Sunlair, who is the initiator in Kingshill (he is well known), we will have a comeback from Toniosha (with a small quest row regarding to her storyline and her connection to Dragan) and, as newcomer, Janus Fox, who was already hinted at in the first Rise of Dragan.

    He will guide you through the main plot and will open up the reward chests each time the player helps him fulfill his plans to stop Dragan.

    Event
    This is how you start the event:

    Now it’s your turn! You will receive a notification about the event in the game, including information about how to participate. This will lead you to Jon Sunlair in Kingshill. He will offer a quest which will redirect you to the Black Knight Portal (located in the Kingshill Fairground) to enter Castle Ravencaw. You will have the possibility to accept two different quests from Janus Fox in the main hall (see "NPCs" for more details). Start to solve the quests to earn the great event rewards. Notice: There is a separated, repeatable quest which will offer victory tokens as a reward, so you will be able to earn access to Dragan’s refuge from the very first minute.

    Chest mechanic
    The chest mechanic replaces the progress bar for the event again. You will be able to see a direct information about the own event progress in the game world.

    Because this is a Halloween Event, there will be a new kind of chest inside the rooms: the Jack-o'-Crates. The Burning Jack-o'-Crate is locked, so you will need to find the key that has the chance to be dropped out of the champions located in the map.

    Hard mode
    You are able to choose between the normal version, where all quest related content will happen and a hard mode, which is mostly for the lvl 45 players, to give them the challenge they want.

    We have 4 different statues in the hard mode fortress where players can summon special champions by using cursed pearls. Every champion has a chance to drop the key to Dragans Refuge in the hard Castle Ravencaw.

    The hard mode will be available after the Sabotage! quest row is finished. The player will get a key as reward to unlock the hard mode barrier.

    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 (weak, strong, etc.) 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 Gnob sometime 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.

    Sargon’s dead body is in this event. Can I continue with the “Kill Sargon 999 times” Quest?
    Yes, you can do the 999 Quest by killing Sargon’s dead body.

    Can I assume that Sargon will rise again?
    If we tell you now, we will spoil all the fun. ;) No, joking aside, whether and how Sargon will find his way back in the game, we do not know yet. We know however that Sargon is a very popular character in the game. We won’t let him get away that easily … there are however no specific plans just yet. So keep posted!

    Event: Stellar Gold
    in cooperation with Razer Comms

    001.png

    An unidentified object of stellar origin finds its way to Kingshill and leaves the heroes and heroines of Dracania full of questions. Rumor has it that the realm of Duria has been blessed by the arrival of the stars; heroes reported to have discovered peculiar coins on their daily routes around Dracania.

    Start: 19th of November 2014
    End: 30th of November 2014

    Over the period of eleven days (19th-30th of November) the players have the chance to find Lucky Coins as drops after defeating worthy opponents, after winning a PvP match or while trying their luck with the Jesters .

    How to participate and start the event?
    Open the event window (hotkey: E), read the terms & conditions, check the box and click on the button that states "Take Part". When you've done that successfully, the Stellar Gold counters should be displayed.
    IMPORTANT: Your character will never receive Lucky Coins as drop if you fail to register for participation.​

    002.jpg
    003.png

    Worthy Opponents:
    Only Monsters that are between 5 levels higher or lower than your own character are considered worthy opponents. For example, if your character is of level 20, then all the monsters with level 15 to level 25 are considered as worthy opponents and thus they have the chance to drop Lucky Coins.​

    Lucky Coins:

    004.png 005.png
    Upon right-click the Lucky Coins will reveal various immediate prizes in your inventory.​

    Among the immediate prizes are:​
    • emotes
    • costumes
    • regular loot items (essences, weapons etc)
    • dyes
    • and many more
    Item Stellar Gold:
    Furthermore, the Lucky Coins bear the chance to contain one very special item called Stellar Gold.

    006.png 007.png

    The more Stellar Gold a hero is collecting the higher are his or her chances to become the winner of real prizes and the super rare epic mount the Black Bear.*

    There can only be 3 winners per instance throughout the entire Drakensang Online Game: We have 6 instances (Heredur, Grimmag, Tegan, Agathon, Werian and Balor), and therefore, a total of 18 winners will be determined.

    For more information about the individual prizes, please see the section below (Prizes Single Player).​

    "One for all, all for one!"
    In this edition of Stellar Gold you have the chance to win prizes for your entire guild!

    If you happen to be a member of a guild, each time you are collecting Stellar Gold, the amount of Stellar Gold will be added to your individual counter but also the Stellar Gold counter of your guild. Both counters are displayed on the event window (hotkey: E).​

    Only one guild, from all six different servers, can be the winner of this year's Stellar Gold. Every member of the guild will receive a prize. (see Prizes: entire guild)​

    FAQ

    What if I don’t have the "Epic Mount" talent yet and I am winning the Black Bear epic mount?
    You will have the epic mount in your inventory but you will only be able to use it once you have reached level 30 in the knowledge tree and unlocked the talent Epic Mount.​

    I only managed to get 2 Stellar Gold and my friend has 20, can I still win the prize?
    Yes of course you have chances to win, however your friend has a higher chance of winning.​

    Is there a ranking to see the players with the highest chances of winning?
    No, since this is a raffle everyone who has Stellar Gold has a fair chance of winning.​

    A ranking table would only make sense if this was a competition or match.​

    I don't have a guild but I want to join a guild, will I still be able to contribute to the Stellar Gold guild counter or do I need to join a guild before the event starts?
    Your individual Stellar Gold will instantly be shared and displayed on the Stellar Gold guild counter as soon as you join a guild. Your individual Stellar Gold will also be subtracted from the guild counter as soon as you decide to leave a guild.​

    When are you announcing the winners of the Stellar Gold event?
    The winners will be revealed by the DSO Community Managers Greg and Dracaty via live stream on www.twitch.tv/drakensang on the 5th of December. After the live stream you will be able to read about the winners in the official forums of DSO, on Facebook and on Twitter.​

    Do I need to be 18 or older to be able to participate in the raffle?
    Yes, you need to be 18 or older in order to be able to take part.​

    The terms & conditions state that forum moderators are not allowed to take part in the raffle however, my guild has a moderator, what happens if my guild wins the raffle?
    Forum admins and moderators cannot influence the results of the Stellar Gold event and are thus allowed to participate. If your guild wins and you have a moderator as member, then s/he will also receive a prize.​

    Countries excluded due to local regulations
    * Players from Brazil, Italy and selected states of the USA are unable to participate to win the prizes due to governmental regulations. However, these players are still able to win instant in-game prizes.​

    The Winder Solstice Event Walkthrough

    event_winter_02_dro_facebook.jpg

    [​IMG]

    126GHIW.png

    Difficulty of the Map

    When in mobs, the enemies can be quite overwhelming and strong. Well-equipped heroes can do the journey alone; however, groups of 2-4 will have a much easier job than solo players, especially when facing Big Paw in hard difficulty mode.​

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    Enemies and loot of the Winter Summit
    You will encounter a variety of enemies, including wolves, gnomes and special Christmas enemies. During your travel you will have to cross passages which are guarded by huge gnome heads made of stone, looking like the stone statues of the Easter Islands, and cannot be harmed. Be extremely careful when crossing the passages, the stone heads will take you down in no time. Luckily their missiles can easily be evaded.

    The course of the maps is pretty straight forward but using the characters jump/teleport ability, allows you to make your way to Big Paw’s cave faster. However, if you travel through the regular course, you can do the quests of the Jullov family.​

    Presents
    Regular mobs drop honey cookies (progress) and can also drop presents. Presents appear in the following colours: Green (often) Blue(improved) Purple (Extraordinary) and Gold (Unique).

    Green, Blue and Purple Presents can be dropped by regular mobs and also champions. Green Presents will have qualitatively lower drops than Gold Presents. Regular mobs and champions can also drop Gold Presents but you will need lots of luck for that. However, Boss Big Paw has a higher chance of dropping the Gold Presents.​

    Battle against Big Paw
    As soon as you have reached the top of the map and enter the cave of Boss Big Paw you better have Snow Essences equipped. The essences will allow you to hurt Big Paw and deal greater damage against the boss.
    Big Paw is being guarded by stone head gnomes that fire missiles at you. Unlike the stone heads from the passages that you have crossed, these stone heads can be hurt. However, their defence is really high and you will need a lot of time to destroy them. It is best if you focus on defeating Big Paw as the stone heads will disappear as soon as Big Paw falls.​

    [​IMG]

    Christmas Gear
    All presents have the chance to contain special Christmas gear. The gear is available for every character class, it is scaling and starts from level 25. The gear only comes in legendary form; you will not find them as improved or other rarities. Even if your character’s level is below level 25, you will be able to find this gear but remember that the level of the items starts from 25.​


    Nightmare Location “Frosty Wasteland”
    Once you have reached almost the end of the progress bar, you will receive a teleport item. This item allows you to face Big Paw in an even harder mode. Note: You will not need Snow Essences against Big Paw here.
    As soon as you enter the map, you will notice a red sphere that you need to destroy but get prepared for a real challenge. Big Paw will be accompanied by either an evil Snowman or a mad Santa. There is a 50% chance that one or the other will appear. The Santa is a melee class and the Snowman is a ranged mage. In general, the Snowman is slightly more difficult to defeat. In total you will be attacked by Big Paw, an evil Snowman or mad Santa and on top of it also by stone head towers, similar to those of the Winter Summit map. The stone heads can be destroyed but its best to defeat Big Paw and his accomplice as the stone heads will then immediately collapse.

    The Snowman and the Santa each have the chance to drop their costume and Big Paw will always drop one item reward from the entire Christmas Event, ranging from components to upgrade your reindeer mount to unique Christmas gear.​

    Hidden piglets
    Of course, as with every event there are piglets spread and hidden all across the map.​

    Ingame - Shop
    In the shop you are given the opportunity to purchase Snow Essences and Sugar Beet, as well as other items of the event.​

    3f75692c9b871a25f9ca18662ffdf00f52b1ebdc.png

    Enjoy the event and happy holidays to everyone!

    Defeat the Undefeatables

    Introduction
    The folk believe that the arch-enemies of Dracania cannot be defeated. But resistance is rising: the merry Queen Antonia is calling the mightiest heroes of Dracania to come to Kingshill and prove them wrong. Even Sir Hardy and Sir Kendrick have gathered brave heroes in the royal city to not only annihilate the monsters in Dracania but also those in the lands of Duria! In return, valiant fighters shall be rewarded Insignias of Honor. Emerge as a grand warrior by defeating a single arch-enemy or immortalize yourself as one of the greatest heroes of Dracania by defeating some or all arch-enemies!
    In the legendary Circus Monstrorum, in which the ancient gods once had their warriors battle against each other in every arena, you can now go up against the big names – King Heredur, the battle spider Arachna, the gorgon M’Edusa and Bearach, warrior of the Goddess of the Hunt. With each one, you can get one part of the Heredur doll – one of the most extraordinary companions Dracania has ever seen!
    Defeat the Undefeatables from January 8 until January 18, 2015 and make sure you go down in history just like the immortal heroes of Dracania!
