So what’s this KoD set we’re talking about? I can’t even look on the wiki for it on that name :-p

Knights of Dawn (maybe Kings) drops from Normal difficulty Monsters and Magma campaign nodes very commonly, Magma elemental illusion is much better when maxxed but requires a lot of hard runs which is much more difficult.

Topic: Kongregate / KONGREGATE is MANIPULATING with game tags and rating.

Look, there is no way that Kong DIDN’T mess with the votes; steadily rises to around 520 upvotes then bam suddenly in one minute down to -480, there is no way this was naturally voted for the players and the tag actually fits the game perfectly and has good valid reasoning behind it but because it hurts the dev’s income (and kong’s) it has to go despite the fact it is dishonest and just wrong in my eyes. (Also Kong always upvotes MMOs to at least 4 stars if it brings any sort of money)

EDIT: prior to 500 when it first hit number one tag:

A much simpler balance for gold is needed something that requires so much gold that suddenly saving your gold becomes important…..for example how about an OLD WITCH that sells enhancement runes. a 50-100 rune would cost 250million a 70- 140 would cost 500mil and a 100-180 rune with a greater dragon effect would cost one billion gold! something like that the suggested gold is only an example to show how easy it is to suddenly create high demand for gold….

Good idea, only 1 billion gold is a tiny amount and that would be better for a lesser rune with a 30-50 boost. (perhaps 75b gold for a medium and 250b for a large with the 180?)

Topic: Dawn of the Dragons: General / Enough world raids!

The main issues with these constant WR’s are the campaigns requiring everybody and the fact that people don’t summon raids during them meaning AP farming is almost impossible and thus meaning no free PC.

Topic: Dawn of the Dragons: General / What mounts are the best on this WR?

Bicorn and Bicorn are always best I think since they give the largest average % boost.

Hello, I am loosing stat points, the game only let me add to my caracter half of my stat points and erase the others.Can you take a look thanks.

if you have more than 10k in a stat that’s not a bug after 10000 each stat costs 2 SP per point and every 1500 after that adds an extra stat point to the cost in my case 1 attack costs me 8 SP

forget the high hp it is not necessary however really for NM crypt you want at least 8k defence probably 10k-12k just to be safe. Maybe the 0 damage is a display error but the enemies killing you is not

Topic: Dawn of the Dragons: General / Expeditions

Basically unless you are a collector of items never buy relic pack (RP). The best gear at the moment is drunken angel/ninja so currently the mystery pack (MP) is the best but the new item pack (NIP) normally has some good stuff stuff but at the moment the new item pack is poor. So either get the MP or wait for a better NIP.

Topic: Dawn of the Dragons: General / The WR loot table is misleading

All of the WR’s do this with the loot and it is a bit misleading, and it can be quite annoying but this one is not anything different than the others for the on hit drops after the raid is dead.

changing profile name should not delete character.
However if you made a new account then no you can’t transfer characters between accounts if it is a bug after changing names report it in the bugs thread.

Topic: Dawn of the Dragons: General / Top Magic For Raids

Originally posted by Kevlar33:

As medium to low damage player (15-20 BSI, level 600-800, no premiums), Don’t see rootfella’s concerns with haste. The private Horgrak mentioned seems silly to me- if you’re sharing a horgrak for AP kill credit, the only magics should be something like midas touch (NO DAMAGE at all)- even naked and with an empty legion, 150k hp is too low to mess with.
On the one hand, he says it’s rare, on the other, says it can cause you to seriously over hit from extra procs going off. I can’t remember if haste is 3% or 5% chance, but lets say its 5%. that means 1 in 20 hits will be doubled. So if you would normally get 20 people to hit that Grune before killing it, now you’ll only get 19. (and that’s if everyone was doing one 1-stamina hit, so someone’s hit got doubled). The risk of multi-proccing off the haste is no more than the regular hit, and you (and everybody else) was already risking that.

So back to the topic at hand… as can plainly be seen from the discussion, the preferred magics on a raid plainly depend on what you are trying to DO with this raid. If you are trying to level up as quickly as possible, then yes, you want anything that will add xp- QM, haste, etc. If you are trying to do the most damage with the fewest stamina, then you want spells that do high average procs, and you don’t want spells like QM that do absolutely no damage.
IF you are trying to get everyone in the raid to do similar damage, you want no magic, or things like burning rain, lesser poison, GMT that do consistent damage.
But if your trying to get as much SP as possible by using as few stamina as possible…get over it. In my limited farm experience, any raid under 100M health is only going to be public for 5 minutes. I don’t even LOOK at the spells on it, I just hit and move on. Unless you’re willing to fight without your mounts (which can triple your damage), don’t complain about a raid having haste cast on it, on the grounds you may double hit…

If I am hitting fairly low hp raids (not low enough to need to unequip all gear) I change my mount to one that gives consistent damage (vornex or blue knight) that allows me to avoid overhitting but still if haste appears that can double my damage.

Well if someone puts haste on a private horgrak (can happen if you trust the person you share it to and then they put it on for some strange reason) and your naked and legionless 1 stam hits for over 150k then haste could cause it to only have 1 hitter instead of 3 or 4 maximum. Haste is good on large raids but not so good on small raids. And as for QM well I don’t BSI farm very often (only if my BSI is lower than I like it to be which is about 30 BSI) hitting N bellarius with no QM makes getting the BSI back to 30 a lot easier. (it would be nice if gibbo nullified QM for the player who was using him as then it would be problem sorted since people could put QM on raids and the ones who don’t like it don’t have to use it).

Every1 just stop turning it into a war….

When a point is brought up the reaction is a bit childish and dodgy, resulting in an even worse reaction from “the other side”.
As said before we are all in this community and i think that instead of blaming eachother (or trying to get the other out of the game/change playing style) we should bring up discussions here on how to better educate the community or how we can all work together better.

Btw 50% of the hate is caused by bad info mostly gotten from some1 else. i would encourage every1 who is against farmgroups to atleast join 1 sometimes to see how it really works. same for ppl against RC, atleast try it out. This might not change your views on the subject, but atleast in a discussion you know what you are talking about and might have some respect for “the other side”

Also try to switch a bit in the rooms to see different aspects… really some things i’ve seen when going through the rooms were hilarious and just plain ashaming…

very good points vinnie and as i have used both pastie scripts and the RC i can say that I do appreciate the RC but it is a bit a like a farm group on a large scale I use both scripts. I use the FTGOA script to do trains and pasties etc. and use the RC for AP/SP farming.

I do flit around the rooms a lot however i will admit i tend to avoid room1 because i had one slight argument there and now whenever i enter if i try to talk there someone normally jumps up and tells me to go back to room8 so i have basically given up talking there. I realise that some people in room8 can be a bit to angry and jump to conclusions but a lot of Room1 do it as well and i think both rooms should spend a bit of time in each other to see how things work in the respective rooms. now on to the OP i think that the idea of blocking peoples raids just for it failing etc. is a really bad idea as some raids get trolled really badly or are difficult to maintain and people can not be online 24/7. Now back to the entire war crap. This needs to stop and both sides need to accept each other as parts of the community so i still think that both rooms should visit the other room more often and get used to each other a bit better. also guys this isn’t the place for the war this thread should be about the OP so people need to get back to the OP and not talk about the war here. (in case people couldn’t tell I do not like either farm groups or the RC however i would still take part in both as just me stopping does nothing).

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Sword & Magic] Assassin skill problems

i dont use dark mist because it just rarely debuffs and venom fang does like 0.5% damage to enemies health when they are poisoned making it almost useless considering it almost never poisons them. if they are going to nerf assassins dodge then they need to buff our skills

EDIT: Oh and venom fang’s only good thing is that even if you miss it can still poison the opponent

Topic: Dawn of the Dragons: General / Are Z10 raids good for SP?

yes z10 is good for SP but only really when you have the dungeon plunderers (DP) Legion as it provides a damage boost vs z10 raids allowing to hit 400m-1b easy enough at lvl 600-700ish

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Sword & Magic] [Poll] Reset or not at open this game - this was closed :)

although I wasn’t a beta tester I have to say I don’t understand why you reset reputation and not everything (it would have made more sense to reset everything) so i vote for reset (I’m still a noob ) but I do understand why high levels may not want a reset. however a reset would be more beneficial overall i think

Edit: oops nevermind this was for the beta i didnt realise
