Thanks for the detailed info littlemichel

How long do you think it takes to get 1000 shadows and how long for 9000?
Trying to see if I can do it for all 3 of my chars

What is the most efficient way of getting event progress?

My guess would be as level 40 characters to farm Cata PW or any Parallel world for essence. I was hoping I could get to the 4th Draken reward on all three of my characters, so that would take 3000/9000 on each one. I guess that's doable (it's the amount I need on all 3 to get 1k Draken go figure).

its depend how faster you can get the shadow portal (entry 2nd map )and light essence or higher to kill sargon ,so the best drop for progress (if still like that in live server ) I think 2nd map,it's more 300 shadows per run
so the overall ,most important in this event, I think to kill sargon if you want faster,but question is how to get enough light essence or higher (this 2 kind essence only drop in event's map or buying )
so if someone done this event very faster I will not suprised as long can manage this 2 item

Event drops disappear pretty quick in Swerfield too btw. So you have to have grab them as soon as possible. If you die before you get to it, there's a good chance it'll be gone when you get back to where you died at. Lost a few shadows finding that out lol.

AND the Power of the Shadows speed buff you get as drop once in awhile does NOT WORK. 0,50% speed increase but my speed is unchanged. Noticed it was flawed in Sargons run too.

And an important question regarding Amphorae. So when a group is in and one person opens it, does the amphorae reset right away for the next person or just one open/drop for the person who got to it? Because according to event announcement we're supposed to get a gear piece from one of them and it would suck to never get a chance to get to it without having to solo the sargon run.

P.S. Skipped Dragan and went for Sargon... ...complicated drawn out kill, not fun.

The monsters in Swerdfield Pastures seem fair (solo ranger at level 30 with purple gear). My main concern is the lack of healing orbs from the summoned creatures. I noticed it when fighting Gretel the Witch and the little fire gremlins kept exploding by my side with no health orb compensation.

Oh... so that's what those darn things do. Needless to say, I could not seem to kill the second Sargon fast enough to do any real damage.

Default Better Bean Drops

Well I noticed they did something on the test server to the coffee bean drop rate. It is much better now. In a few hours I got enough beans for several trips into Swerfield at Night with enough left over for a cup of coffee

Ordinary Light Ess seemed a bit better as well but just a guess since I was not tracking that. Altogether the changes will make the event much more playable.

Luck be with ye,
Mikey,
Tegan

Yep, at least on the test server, when one member of the group opens the amphora the other players can't use it, the same as shabby chests. But I noticed more than one amphora in Sargons shadowfort.

You get the pauldrons as an event reward, not sure about the others.

From the point of view of a F2P who hasn't got 20 hours a day to grind, as far as the test server went, I spent most of my game time trying to collect beans or enough ess to exchange. My lvl36 ranger got an invite from lvl 40s and was probably carried in the team, but we only did the Pastures at night map. Later I joined another lvl40 - a SW (just the two of us) and we did that again -I was obviously being carried this time, but we also tried the second map.
Not even sure who the knight character was that repeatedly killed us as we didn't get that close to ask his name. But we gave it up at that point. So no quests done - not even understood at this point. What are the keys for?
I have a load of stuff in my inventory for this event and no room for any drops.
My SW, who is lvl39, again spent a long time trying to get the beans together to get in, only to find that I couldn't find a group, so didn't even get inside.
Today, loins girded, I decided to give it a bash on solo - at least get monsters at my own level, and ............. nothing! Gone, disappeared, extinct.
