044 - New Moon event


best way to end the full moon event is to kill only the mini-bosses which drop 50 (or sometimes 100) blood.  That way one round yields around 220 to 250 event progess at average and it costs you only 1 scroll.  The event can be completed in 15 visits of 5 minutes, totaling only 1h and 15 min !! :)

Underneath the map with all the mini-bosses.  There are 4 different maps, once you get one, you know where the other 3 are.

have fun

042 - Calculating your characters strength

On request :

A character has a defensive strength and an offensive strength.

Defensive :  How many hitpoints can it take before it dies.

Offensive : How many damage can it do per second.

I've made an excel file where you can calculate both.  This makes it possible to compare different setups.

You can download the file at :

041 - Sargon 2.0 : Hidden Pigs

Hi all, I've had very little time in the past (and will have the next months) so not many updates.  But the hidden goodies in map 1 of the new event I want to share with you.  Ofcours, with many thanks to our German friends ;)

Every hidden pig is worth 10 shadows, enjoy :)


EDIT : The easter eggs in map 2 seems to be the same as the previous event.  You can find them in post 39.

No Sargon bug anymore !!!  It seems they erased the Sargon bug of the previous event.  It's not possible to stun Sargon at one place anymore.  For a dragon knight it's very difficult to kill him now, ranged attacks are no preferable.

040 - Terrifying Shadows event - map 2

map 2 with all the bosses

First of all, making videos isn't my best skill :)  So be gentle :)

Underneath I will describe or show how to kill the bosses of map 2 of the Terrifying Shadows event.

Devestating Swamp

Nothing special here.  Kill first the little mobs, then circle around the boss and hit when you can.  When he dies, he spawns 5 new mobs, nothing hard.  Just warming up.

Devestating Swamp

Bahadur the Immortal

Similar to Devestating Swamp.  The only difference is that he resurrects 2 times.  You need to kill him 3 times in a row.

Next boss is Dragan.  Many find him impossible but to be honest, as a dragon knight I don't find him that hard.  In fact I just overpower him with red essence and war banner + smash.  Takes only 30 strokes (100 red essence) and 1 health potion.

Treshold Guardian and Tortured Soul

Again these bosses aren't that hard.  Just don't play to quickly, kill the little ones first and then take your time.  Be aware, the Treshold Guardian explodes when dying.

Neferati Guardian of Wisdom

The 5th boss can be a little difficult solo.  His first hit stuns you and the second one is devestating (sometimes up to 6000 hitpoints).  In fact I find this the most difficult boss.  I often struggle to get started.  Just like in the video underneath.  The start is dramatic but I pull myself out.  The trick here is to keep running, never stand to long in one place.


Finally we come to the main boss.  This boss resurrects one time, so in fact you need to kill him twice.

First Sargon :
Actually the most difficult one.  Take the light essence with the most damage (red or blue).  Kill the healers as soon as possible, you will need to take some risks here.  For Sargon, you can circle around him and attack him from behind.

The video underneath begins when the first Sargon is almost dead.

Second Sargon :
The second Sargon is weird.  In the beginning the still spawns healers, again kill them asap.  He also spawns skeletons, DO NOT attack them.  When 5 or 6 skeletons are active, Sargon will stay in one place and won't attack anymore.  Then it's just a matter of pulling the skeletons away from Sargon, rush to Sargon and attack him until the skeletons  catch up to you.  Then you have to pull them back again and so on.

Hopefully this helps some who have troubles killing those bosses.  Have fun !

039 - Easter Eggs - Terrifying Shadows event

Easter Eggs

Easter Eggs in the event maps

Hi all,

haven't had much time last 2 weeks.  I even barely played the event.  Yet today, with Easter, I saw a post on the German forum saying there are Easter eggs hidden in the event maps.  I wanted to share that with you.

Each 'egg' is good for 10 shadows.  Until now they found 5 eggs in map1 and 4 in map2.  Maybe there are more or maybe there are some in other maps too.  If so, please leave a comment so I can update this post.

Underneath you'll see all the locations of the eggs in the event maps.

map 1 - egg 3
map 1 - egg 4

map 1 - egg 5

map 2 - egg 6

map 2 - egg 7
map 2 - egg 8

map 2 - egg 9

if you look at map 2, I'll guess there need to be one more on the far east side.

Tnx to Sper009 from the forum, the last easter egg is located.  Also good news is that the eggs are still there.  Maybe they stay there till the end of the event.

Some figures about the event

A few quick words about my 'road map' of the event.

-> Farming coffee beans : I farm my coffee beans in Suvius.  This gives on average 4.5 beans per run (15 min).  This also yields on average 115 ordinary light essence.

-> Solo event : As a dragon knight I find it much easier to go solo then in a group.  So I complete the event solo.

-> Map 1 : map 1 gives me between 50 and 75 shadows and around 250 ordinary light essence.  It takes around 20 minutes to complete.  Map 1 doesn't give that much shadows, but you need to do the map in order to obtain the nightshadows from the bosses so you can get the portal for map 2.

-> Quest map 1 : Don't forget to take the quest of killing 1000 monsters in map 1.  There are a little over 400 monsters thus this quest can be done in 3 turns.  This give you on average 25 / 3 = 8 extra shadows per run.

-> Map 2 : Map 2 is the hardest but I find it doable even solo, even Dragan and Sargon.  Can clean the map on my own without dying.  Normal monsters in map2 give around 165 shadows, Dragan drops 70, Sargon 250, 5 amphora give each 25 shadows, quest  2 gives 50 ->  this sums up to over 550 shadows per run.  With the 4 Easter eggs even close to 600 !

-> Quest map 2 : Don't forget to take the quest for map 2.  Killing 500 mobs gives you 100 shadows.  There are 300 monsters in the map so this quest can be done in 2 runs yielding 50 shadows per run.

-> Amphora's : You can 'buy' a key to open a amphora for 200 ordinary light essence.  Not sure if it's worth.  I opened 20 amphora so far, this is what I got :

slot 1 : minion helmet (11) / 2 coffee beans (5) / 500 ordinary light essence (4)
slot 2 : 5 shadows (20)
slot 3 : 1 draken (20)
slot 4 : 4, 5 or 6 copper (19) / scroll of wisdom (1)

-> Uniques : As said before, the uniques from Dragan and Sargon doesn't drop too much ;)   The cloak however is said to drop the most frequent.  Nevertheless, you'll need a lot of luck to get one of those.

So far my experiences.  If I have time I will make some videos on how the beat the different bosses in map 2.

038 - Terrifying Shadows on testserver

Drakensang Online terrifying shadows event

Today the new event Terryfying Shadow - Antonia's Abduction went live on the testserver.  So it's possible / probable that this event starts this weekend.

There are 2 questkeepers at Kingshill, John Sunclair and Sir Hardy.  Underneath you can see their quests.  I don't know which quests are repeatable and which are not.

At first there was a little confusion on how to enter the Swerdfield Pastures at Night.  The pouch given when logged in only contained 5 coffee beans while you need 10 to enter.  So I started farming for coffee beans because it was said that worhty monsters would drop those.  But after a while I got none.  The 'ordinairy essence of light' however did drop regularly in drop of 10.

drop of 10 Ordinairy Essence of Light

After a while I managed to get over 500 essences, but still not a single coffee bean.  Back in Kingshill it seemed there was a quest at Jon Sunclair called 'Vigilance' where you could trade 500 light essences for 10 coffee beans.

So eventually I could enter.  I'm not sure how it will be on the live servers.  Coffee beans as a drop too or only light essences which can be traded.

I made a video from the Swerdfield Pastures at Night.  It was not easy to survive because I have only a weak character on the testserver.  Besides the map is designed to go with 5 ... I was all on my own :)
