Frost Dragon questions


pgmr185
 Share

Recommended Posts

I just got 85 Dung and am really anxious to try out frost dragons. I did a practice run with some basic equipment (and no cannon) and I have a few questions.

 

When I got there I was completely alone, not another person in the whole dungeon. After about a half hour of having free run of the place I got surrounded by three guys with cannons and couldn't really get in another kill.

 

So the first question is, how busy does it actually get down there? Is it usually full, or are there plenty of times when it's dead?

 

Next, how essential is having a cannon? Both in terms of kills per hour, and also in being able to claim an area of the dungeon to kill in. I got 54 kills in a half hour, would the cannon significantly improve on that?

 

And last, what is a reasonable number for kills/hour for me? I've got overloads, a rapier, and turmoil. I'm not talking about the absolute maximum possible kills/hour for a master dragon slayer, just a good honest number that I should be shooting for.

It's crowded now, a couple months ago you had plenty of free worlds. But yeah... bots...

 

Cannon improves kills/h by a ton i usually get around 150 kills/h with extremes, rapier, turm & wart tort.

With a yak it's like 190-200 kills/h i heard.

 

This is in ideal circumstances.

If you want a good approximation of how many dragons per hour - you need to tell us:

a.) the gear you are using

b.) your levels

c.) turmoil/piety

d.) yak

e.) overloads or extremes? when are you repotting

210/hr is the max killrate but this is hard to achieve and requires summoning potions.

 

150/hr is the max a yak can bank naturally. If you are not using summoning potions and you find that you can bank every bone/rune long/effigy/visage etc. you get, you need to up your killrate.

If you want a good approximation of how many dragons per hour - you need to tell us:

a.) the gear you are using (he uses rapier, i guess with d def, d boots, barrow gloves, the rest doesn't really matter)

b.) your levels

c.) turmoil/piety (l2read)

d.) yak

e.) overloads or extremes? when are you repotting (l2read)

I was thinking about responding to him, but I kind of tucked the info in the last sentence, so it was easy to miss. I was really only looking for a ballpark estimate anyway. It seems like 150-200/hr is what I should be shooting for.

You said you were using a rapier (what about the rest of your gear? unless you're only using a rapier)

I mean, I was asking this so you would get a better estimate. Additionally, if there was anything wrong with your setups - somebody from Tip.It would probably correct you/show you a good alternative set-up.

 

However, if all you were looking for is a 50 kill / hour range - then I guess good luck with Frost Dragons!

Well, I got my cannon and it worked out really well. There were lots of other people there, so it really helped me get some kills.

 

I can't say for certain that the others were bots, but they all had War Tortoises, all set their cannons up within one square of each other, and usually the cannons ran out of ammo for long stretches of time. Most of the accounts were pretty low leveled (100-120) so maybe they botted their Dung levels,too.

 

I guess that there's just about no risk in being caught anymore if these guys are willing to take the chance with a non-throwaway account.
