"Dragons Bane" How-to!

35 posts in this topic

So I found an absolute easier way of doing this trophy just a few minutes ago, it's still going to take a while and don't know if it's been mentioned but this is how I've just started doing it, there's no deaths required and only one character select option needed, one note is that you may require a ranged attack.

 

So to do it, is the same method but when you get to the end boss defeat the two small dragons run under the little ledge where Karrundax is and wait for him to drop down and his health bar appear then hit options and select change character, log back in and then proceed to agro the dragons (dont wander to far out though) and kill them under the rock he's on, as long as you don't let his health bar appear the dragons will spawn infinitely.

 

I can't be sure all the dragons count or its just the first two as I've already got over 50 so if anyone can verify that this works who has under 50 would be appreciated.

Ok so i have finally mustered the motivation to begin the grind. Following Spark-N's method can anyone else confirms whether this works. Also would this be possible to do AFK with the comp killing the dragons. I assume comp kills would still count but not really sure

I did 50 dragons kills trophy in similar fashion as spark-N stated. 

 

You dont need to have ranged attack, just after killing small dragons, log off for 5-10 secs. This will reset boss and puts you back to fireplace inside boss encounter. If you log back in too fast, then boss havent reseted yet.

The method explained by @Spark-N and shown in his/her video works flawlessly. If you activate the boss by venturing too far from under the "ledge", just log out and back in with the change character option. I confirm that every kill counts. I did 1000 kills in under 6 hours on my own at level 68 with basic lvl66-68 gear with 0 enchantments.

so how do people farm dragons now with level scaling? You can't get to the baby dragons in karrundax without a full group, can't kick or leave a random queue group and stay in the instance and good luck asking 3 other people to waste 20 mins of their life carrying you to the final boss multiple times.

It is still possible, though more difficult. I tried soloing it shortly after hitting the level cap and couldn't make it past the second encounter. However, after gearing up some more (I'm now at 17k item level, starting to fill out with ME gear from Undermountain) I was able to make it to the boss on my own as an arbiter cleric.

 

The fights are not easy, and I died two or three times on the way, but I did make it. Farming the two wyrmlings isn't nearly as fast as it could be, since you actually have to fight them instead of merely slaughtering them. I'd estimate it took me about 30-45 seconds in between pulls to kill the pair. I stayed there for about 15 minutes and got my 50 kill trophy. (didn't check how many I had before starting) When I took a break for dinner, found out that you will be kicked from the instance if you stay logged out too long.

 

Definitely not as easy as it sounds like it used to be, but still better than any other method I know of. I'll be devoting a few solid hours of grinding over the weekends from now on until I hit the goal.

I didn't think it was possible to get to the boss solo. You can gear up quickly by farming Avernus sieges (Someone in chat will shout the number of where the siege is, when they do, quickly change instances to that number and go complete the siege, repeat)

 

Everytime you complete a siege you earn seals of the fallen/ Seals of the deep, which you can exchange for gear. The Siege also give you 100 chaotic writings for every completion, which you can trade in for Juma bags which has 1,250 level gear. It's the first thing every 80 should do, but the game doesn't tell you.

 

Epic mount speed is recommended, but not required. The enemies will hit you off the mount and try to kill you if your on a slow green mount, but if your careful you can go around them and get to the siege. Once your there you will be safe

I am still struggling to solo Karrandax and don't really understand how the game now adjusts your character down on lower level missions. Karrandax is supposed to be a level 59 mission.

I took a break from the game in June 2019 because of all of the major changes at that time and only returned about 6 weeks ago with all outdated gear, discontinued items etc. I was level 70 with an item level of 9,000 and no companion gear or any of that type of stuff that had been introduced in the last 9 months.

Anyway I tried to solo Karrandax, died several times in the first fight but got through to Pyraphenia eventually and kept getting no where. So I decided to level up and get the new stuff. I was to low item level to access the Juma stuff so I spent the last several weeks faming seals of the deep to get to 20K and am now farming chaotic writings. Along the way I kept trying to experiment with Karandax.

 

After failing so badly with 9,000 IL, level 70 and no companion equipment I went back in at 16,000 IL, level 80 companion equipment and level 11 bonding stones and was surprised to find fared little better that I had at 9,000 IL and much worst stats. I died a few less times and managed to take out Pyraphenia's first wave of minions this time but did not seem much more effective.

 

Having finally been able to farm Chaotic writings this week I have got to IL 21,000 and should be at 23,000 in a week or two. I tried Karrandax again this morning and it was slightly easier but I still died several times on my way to Pyraphenia and managed to get her to half health before the second wave of her minions swapned. With much more potions and a little luck I suspect I could have won but I doubt I could meat Magera if I did and based on my current performance the Wyrmlings at the end are likely to take me as much time to take down as farming the big Dragons in the Well of Dragons. The heroic encounter Dragons are no use any more as they last less than 5 seconds to a horde of high level DPS types and as a tank I rarely seem to do enough damage to get a 'great success' before the fight is over.

 

This morning when I tried Karrandax I did a comparison between my normal stats and those in Karrandax to see how much the dungeon was nerfing me and in a week ot two when my character is at IL 23,000 I will try the dungeon again and see if added another 2,000 IL has really helped my stats in the Dungeon at all.

 

Here is the position at 21,000 IL. I am a Fighter tank which is why my offensive stats seem low and yes I know I have a big problem with my crit avoidance at the moment which I am working on. I don't yet have a legendry mount yet which I am saving AD for but it will be a while as I have been spending on bonding stones and the like.

 

Anyway here we go (21,000 IL). I have rounded to nearest thousand below

 

HP normally 386,0000 nerfed to 142,000 in Karrandax

Power 82,000 nerfed to 32,000 (ouch)

Armour Pen 66,000 nerfed to 27,000

Defence 65,000 nerfed to 25,000

Crit Strike 43,000 nerfed to 23,000

Crit Avoid 43,000 nerfed to 19,000

 

***These two are interesting as they start off around the same but one takes a much bigger hit suggesting that stats coming from certain types of buffs, equipment, enchantments, companion gear are getting nerfed at different percentages. No idea really***

 

Accuracy 65,000 nerfed to 23,000

Deflect 35,000 nerfed to 17,000

Combat Adv 56,000 nerfed to 29,000

Awareness 40,000 nerfed to 17,0000

 

*** Here note how Deflect and Awareness but end up at the same level in the Dungeon even though Awareness is normally 5,000 higher***

 

So I only have a few bits of 1,000 gear items so far so I will be interested in seeing in a week or two when I have better kit and 2,000+ more IL if working on that stuff in any helps by Karrandax stats rise much at all or even go down in some areas depending on where any improved stats are coming from.

 

And they really should have added slayer tracking on Dragons by now. I am sure I must be past 500 by now and may only need a couple hundred more but once you get past 50 kills they stop showing you the progress you are making. Dragons are the only creature this seems to happen with that has an achievement attached to it.

 

Good luck with your Dragon farming.

Me and my friend finished the trophy in one sitting today. We are both ilvl 21k and It took us 2:20 to get to the boss and farm 900+ kills. If you have more/better geared people, it could be done even faster then that. It wasn't hard at all and so much quicker then I thought it would be. Here is the last 15 minutes of us grinding and getting the trophy.

 

Notes

* I had a Claw of Bahamut equipped and we were both using x2 Dragon Overload enchants (From gemmonger at Stronghold) for extra damage.

* People calming that you need to get the last hit on a Dragon, or that the kill only counts for one person are wrong.

Is this still the best method?, I haven't convinced myself to try and do it

 

So, yesterday I stumbled upon this and I'm trying it
