    Katana's DotD Guide: Getting Legendary Items

    Legendary items have Red names. With the exception of the Colosseum ones they are all unique items that need to be crafted. They are the best items for their slots at the time of release. Some legendaries can also be upgraded (SoCK and Shield Ryndor)

    This is to help all you new players (and some older ones) to obtain the legendaries.
    Currently there are 10 legendaries -
    - 4 from raids: Mina, Sword of Conquered Kingdoms (SoCK), Kyddin Signet, & Sargaash Upgraded
    - 4 from questing: Shield of Ryndor, Suneate of Last Emperor, Heubark of Gold, & Gauntlets of the Realm Walker
    - 2 from colosseum: Golden Wreath, Panoply of the Colossus
    This means it is very hard to get all the legendaries as you need to be good at more than 1 thing and be involved in all 3 aspects of the game.

    Before I go into details to obtain each item I'll give some of my observations
    1) Everyone can get all the Quest/Raid legends if they play long enough as there are no real stat requirements. The Colosseum legends however require you to beat others at PvP. This means you need decent Atk to get it.
    2) Quest legends need LOTS of energy as items are random drops from quest bosses. Repeating quests multiple times is needed to get the drops. Higher difficulty levels have better chance of dropping craft pieces. To get these legendaries without taking ages invest in over 1000 Energy or buy refills.
    3) Raid legends are easiest to get as they require relatively low dmg from the raids to drop. The key is to stick to the optimum dmg range to maximise epics per stam invested. Fair share dmg drops 1 epic but it may take 3x fair share to get 2 epics so its better to hit multiple raids at AP/fair share dmg than invest it all into one raid.
    4) Mina & Kyddin are only nightmare (NM) mode. SoCK is any difficulty but because of overlap with Mina raids you might as well start with NM. If you get the Mina part before you get the SoCK part you can revert to normal mode.
    5) In case it is still not clear, Raid legends are from crafting Epic loot from Raid bosses and Quest legends are from crafting drops from Quest bosses. eg Circle of Bloodmane will not drop from raiding Bloodmane. You have to complete all the subquests in the first section of Ryndor to unlock the quest boss and then defeat him.
    6) Craft parts for Heubark and Suneate can drop from Gifts so I advise doing the Shield Ryndor & Gauntlet legends first and then picking up the Heubark/Suneate pieces you did not get from gifts.

    I will list the legendaries in the order of difficulty to get (In my opinion anyway)
    1. SoCK (Raid of any difficulty)
    Dmg listed is fair share for normal raids. The drop rates is 5-20% of epics with Lurking Horror and Gravlok giving the lowest return.
    I have listed the location to get the summoning essence in [brackets] if you want to summon your own raids. However you don't need to be able to summon a raid to get the craft parts. You can join other people's raid from the forum or your FB wall

    - Blade Eldarun: Raid Loot - Erubus [Fallows Zone 4] (600k=2 epic) or Tainted (1m=1 epic)
    - Blade Anothia: Raid Loot - Gravlok [Fallows Zone 3] (500k=1 epic)
    - Carnus Crest: Raid Loot - Lurking Horror [Faedark Zone 3] (350k=1 epic, 800k=2 epic)
    - Carnus Hilt: Raid Loot - Grune [Burden Zone 3] (200k = 1 epic)

    2. Mina (NM raids only)
    Aim for AP or 2x AP dmg. Drop rates are rarer than SoCK pieces so you need to hit more raids.
    I have listed the location to get the summoning essence in [brackets] if you want to summon your own raids. However you don't need to be able to summon a raid to get the craft parts. You can join other people's raid from the forum or your FB wall
    To unlock summoning essence for Tainted Erubus: defeat Erubus quest boss in NM
    - Grune Blood: Raid Loot - Grune [Burden Zone 3] (AP dmg = 200k)
    - Lurking Horror Blood: Raid Loot - Lurking Horror [Faedark Zone 3] (AP dmg = 350k)
    - Gravlok Blood: Raid Loot - Gravlok [Fallows Zone 3] (AP dmg = 500k)
    - Erubus Blood: Raid Loot - Erubus [Fallows Zone 4] (AP dmg = 600k)
    - Tainted Erubus Blood: Raid Loot - Tainted Erubus (AP dmg = 1m)

    3. Kyddin Signet(NM raids only)
    These raids have less attackers than SoCK/Mina so you may need to do fair share rather than AP to get raids killed.
    I have listed the location to get the summoning essence in [brackets] if you want to summon your own raids. However you don't need to be able to summon a raid to get the craft parts. You can join other people's raid from the forum or your FB wall
    - Map 1:Raid Loot - Bloodmane [Ryndor Zone 1] (1.4 mil =1 epic)
    - Map 2:Raid Loot - Kerberos [Ryndor Zone 2] (700k-1.4m=1 epic, 2-4m=2 epic)
    - Map 3:Raid Loot - Hydra [Ryndor Zone 3] (650k-1.3 mil =1 epic)
    - Map 4:Raid Loot - Sir Cai [Ryndor Zone 4] (1.4-3m =1 epic)
    - Map 5:Raid Loot - Tyranthius [Ryndor Zone 5] (1.2m=1 epic, 2.5m=2 epic)

    4. Shield Ryndor (Parts drop from Quest bosses - not Raid bosses. Better chance at higher difficulty)
    Drop rates were increased when the upgraded version became available.
    - Circle Bloodmane: Quest Boss Loot - Bloodmane (Ryndor 1)
    - Circle Kerberos: Quest Boss Loot - Kerberos (Ryndor 2)
    - Circle Hydra: Quest Boss Loot - Hydra(Ryndor 3)
    - Circle Sir Cai: Quest Boss Loot - Sir Cai (Ryndor 4)
    - Circle Tyranthius: Quest Boss Loot - Tyranthius (Ryndor 5)

    5. Suneate Last Emperor
    First you craft Misako's Essence: Each Vornstaag quest boss drops a piece and the ring is Epic loot from any Vornstaag raid.
    Quest pieces can also drop from Gifting
    - Misako's Ring: Ironclad, Zombie, Bogstench, Stein, Nalargast Raids

    - History Carnus: Quest Boss Loot - Bogstench (Vornstaag Quest 4)
    - Eurydice Compendium: Quest Boss Loot - Nalargast (Vornstaag Quest 5)
    Then you summon Misako to fight (buy personal runes) and get Misako's Cleansed Ring as a raid drop.

    6. Heubark of Gold
    Note: Kalaxia Quest boss drops 2 diff pieces. The Stylin' and Profilin' is a much rarer drop
    First you craft Mestr Rekkr Essence: Each Bludheim quest boss drops a piece but you can sometimes get from gifting.
    - Wrestling Invite: Quest Boss Drop - Gunnar (Bludheim 1)
    - Alte Armutar: Quest Boss Drop - Nidhogg (Bludheim 2)
    - Flos Duellatorum: Quest Boss Drop - Kang (Bludheim 3)
    - Gladiatoria: Quest Boss Drop - Ulfrik (Bludheim 4)
    - What Ya Gonna Do: Quest Boss Drop - Kalaxia (Bludheim 5)
    - Stylin' and Profilin': Quest Boss Drop - Kalaxia (Bludheim 5 - very rare drop)
    Then you summon Mestr Rekkr to fight (buy personal runes) and get Championship Belt as a raid drop.

    7. Sargaash Upgraded (Combine original Sargaash with Trophy Honor & Proof of Courage)
    Sargaash the Mighty (original) is epic loot from any difficulty Erubus/Tainted raid.
    All craft parts from raids. Magma essence is random drop from Subterrain Quest Bosses. Once you have the essence you can summon the personal raid which has 200k health and 24 hr timer. Only you can participate in personal raid. You can resummon the Magma Horror every 6hrs.
    Trophies of Honor
    Magma Horror's Eye - Personal Raid Summon of Magma Horror (Possible Loot)
    Blood infused Magma - Personal Raid Summon of Magma Horror (Possible Loot)
    Guilbert's Stone - NM Guilbert the Mad (Raids) (2.2-4.4m =1 epic)
    Wexxa's Mask- NM Wexxa the Worm-Tamer (Raids) (1.1-2.2m =1 epic)
    Shards of the Erakka-Sak - NM Erakka-Sak (Raids) (1.24-2.5m =1 epic)
    Maraak's Shards - NM Maraak the Impaler (Raids) (3mil =1 epic)

    Proof of Courage
    Tainted Heart of Erebus Raid Loot - NM Tainted Erebus
    Nalagarst's Bone- Raid Loot -NM Nalagarst
    Kalaxia's other Eye Raid Loot - NM Kalaxia
    Bellarius' Claw - Raid Loot - NM Bellarius

    8. Gauntlets of the Realm Walker (Parts drop from Quest bosses - not Raid bosses. Better chance at higher difficulty) (NEW)
    Link to Revanche's post for this info
    - Hargamesh's Stinger: Quest Boss Loot - Hargamesh (Dreams Zone 1)
    - Grimsly's Diploma: Quest Boss Loot - Grimsly (Dreams Zone 2)
    - Rift's Hand: Quest Boss Loot - Rift (Dreams Zone 3)
    - Music in a Bottle: Quest Boss Loot - Sisters (Dreams Zone 4)
    - Mardachus' Claw: Quest Boss Loot - Mardachus (Dreams Zone 5)
    - Mysterious Emblem: Quest drop ("Better Part of Valor", "Strangers in in a Strange Land", and "Awakening" quests in Hargamesh Zone)

    9. Golden Wreath
    - Master Gladiator Rank 12: 25600 Colosseum Points (CP). Assuming you win all 20 battles per day against opponent of your rank (6 CP each) it wil take 213 days. The only way to speed it up is to get lots of defensive wins, beat people above you, or buy tokens. Obviously if you lose battles or others attack you and beat you then you lose CPs and it will take longer.

    10. Panoply of the Colossus
    - Master of the Colosseum Rank 16: 76800 Colosseum Points (CP).

    Upgraded Legendaries
    Sock Upgraded (NM raids only for raid Stones) (Combine original SoCK with the stones)
    Drop rates of raid parts is low so the key again is to maximise the number of epics from stam invested. i.e do lots of raids at lower dmg rather than pour it all into one raid. You can expect to do 10-20 raids for each stone (some people need more but others have been luckier)
    Quest stones drop from clicking on any of the subquests listed. They do not come from Quest bosses. Higher drop rate from higher quest difficulty but may still need 2-3 runs to get. Shift + Click to reset an area's difficulty if you have made it thru NM quests without obtaining the stone.
    #1 Stone of Farzak: Raid Loot - Kalaxia
    #2 Stone of Xarabesh: Raid Loot - Lord Tyranthius
    #3 Stone of Lyrpan: Raid Loot - Bogstench
    #4 Stone of D'rach: Quest Drop - any sub-quest in Vornstaag "Cemetery"
    #5 Stone of Arach: Quest Drop - any sub-quest in Ryndor "The Tomb" and "Plains:Mad Dogs"
    #6 Stone of Zuxala: Quest Drop - any sub-quest in Bludheim "Terracles Meander"

    Shield of Ryndor Upgraded
    Here's the link to Hexatomb's compilation of solution

    Anyway, hope this helps make the game more enjoyable for you.

    When I started out all I wanted was a simple source of info - CA was really good at that. You knew eaxctly how much to hit each monster to get what you wanted. Here, the info is starting to build up. There's some great collation of proc info and dmg calculations done by a few others on the forum here. I'm trying to fill in some of the gaps. If there are any other areas people feel they need info on, share you thoughts here and I'll see what I can do

    very nice guide man. well written and easy to follow.

    i am still on the fence on thinking the shield is the 2nd hardest behind the crown to get. i was able to snag journal pages and books all on normal or through gifting. while i have not seen a shield piece below nightmare. the 2nd time i turned in the stuff for the legendary chest it was all from gifting. i did tyranthius's zone 3 times on nightmare with no shield and said **** on it and moved on. since then i have picked up 2 other shield pieces the first shot on nightmare. its still a nasty little legendary to pick up.

    What we need is data on drop rates. A lot harder to collect big sample size due to enormous energy involved.
    Perhaps if people could write here what they got for all Bludheim. Ryndor, Vornstaag quest bosses and I will compile. Only record legendary pieces or "no legends". Don't just record the times you get legends or it will skew the data. I'm thinking that if we can collectively get sample size of 100 for each boss/level it should give us good indication of drop rates.
    eg
    Tyranthius NM shield piece
    Gunnar Norm no legends

    haha, I think most would think that too if they had your PvP stats. But I think it was a lot harder work to build a strong PvP build than it is to dump everything into E/S and level quickly

    3) Raid legends are easiest to get as they require relatively low dmg from the raids to drop. The key is to stick to the optimum dmg range. Doing more is likely to give you an equip loot instead.
    would it be the same if u went just a little over eg for kyddins signet u said optimum dmg is 3-5mill what about the little differnces eg 5.1mill?

    I don't think that would hurt your chances - My Map 5 I got from Tyranthius doing 5.495m, whereas I got Map 1 from Bloodmane 1.811m, Map 2 from Kerberos doing 1.115m & 3.505m, Map 3 from Hydra 3.292m

    Just don't do heaps more eg my first 2 Tyranthius I did 44.44m & 32.16m giving 7 epics but no map. By doing lower dmg you also spread out your dmg across multiple raids giving you more chances eg The 76.6m dmg above could have gone to 15 raids x 5m each which should give me 30 epics.

    Thanks for the list but I think you have Bogstench and Stein confused since you first go to the Dungeons (3rd Quest w/ Stein) and then rise up to the Castle (4th Quest w/ Bogstench).

  13. #13
    Are you sure Kyddin Signet(NM raids only - 3-5 mil dmg) for - Map 1:Bloodmane (Ryndor Quest 1)? Bloodmane does not even have enough HP for you to do 3-5 dmg plus others helping to kill it quick? Most Bloodmane raid posted, don't last long enough for you to gain 3-5 mill damage unless you start them.

    @ Locke. Thanks for picking that up. I did get them confused.
    @Dragonwar. You're right. 10 man raids need a lot less dmg than others.

    Good list of what damage to do to raids to get the items, but i had recently looted an Erebus the black raid (doing roughly 12 mill on it) and received the sock component. I was confused because i saw this thread a while ago and stuck to the damage. I personally thing that if you do more than 3 mill on a raid, you will probably get a sock component, just my thought.

    You are righ in pointing out that craft components can drop from higher dmg. I too have had pieces drop from even 20 mil dmg.
    However the other reason for sticking to the lower range is you get more chances for a drop
    Lets just say a craft piece drops 1 in 10 epics (made up this figure for the example)
    If you do 12 mil you might get 2 epics so it would take 5 raids to drop the piece. This would be 60 mil dmg
    If you did 4 mil you might get 1 epic so it would take 10 raids which adds up to 40 mil dmg
    This allows you to spread your stam around more .

    PS The dmg range I have listed is not the optimal range in that I don't have the stats to back it up. However it is a good guide to what is needed. It encompasses a range of dmg that I have done to get drops. I have had drops at higher and lower dmg.

    sir, i like your post regarding how to get the legendary items and i followed it for several times already but still no map...I even tried killing Kerberos NM & bloodmane NM using my 4 dotd accounts only but still no map...also, I tried doing the quest just damaging Bloodmane w/ only 1-2.5M & Kerberos 2-4M but still no map again...I'm just wondering how many times do I have to kill Kerberos & BLoodmane before I can get the maps?
