It's STILL a VERY HARDCORE quest requiring an average of 206 hours of gameplay, but a lot more possible to actually complete.
A lot of people also pointed out last night (thank you) that while an optional hardcore quest seems like fun, the POINT of a Paragon Pet is to be able to farm Legion Tokens faster or at least easier then you could without the pet. I've added a second quest (this one is a daily) that will require 20 drops (25% drop rate) off of the Ultra Chaos Warrior, but the reward is 100 Legion Tokens.
Not the fastest way to earn Legion Tokens but faster by far than not having the a Paragon Pet.
Each of the items is a 1% drop (0 AC for storage, naturally) from the quest. I made this quest as hard as I could think without making it literally impossible for those few of you who say that the game has become too simple... We also have our Mardi Gras/Carnival Big Bad Voodoo Event! AE has Thyton and the Undead Legion has the Blade Master.
In order to complete the quest, you will need to collect 13 Ribs from Binky the ungodly-powerful, nasty-as-frak unicorn monster and each rib only has a 2% Drop rate. 2% chance to get a rib, IF you manage to kill the unkillable Binky. 1% chance that you'll get one of these items, making them two of the rarest items EVER in AQW. who say that even Drakath is too easy and you need a REAL challenge. Complaining about it is like complaining about a test you . Also coming in the shop will be the Legion Dread Rider armor (800 ACs) and helm (90 ACs)... The Dread March Armor (500 ACs or 500 Legion tokens), helm (90 ACs or 90 Legion Tokens and cape (250 ACs or 250 Legion Tokens)... And finally some items that we missed in the initial Blade Master release: Blade Master Hood (90 ACs), Blade Master Wraps (9000 Gold for everyone), Blade Master Horns (90 ACs), the Blade Master Mask (Legend only, 9000 gold) and the Blade Master Cape (animated, 250 ACs). Once the Blade Master Class goes rare (again, in a month or so) we will be looking through everyone who has it (AC or Legion TOken version, both work) and drawing a name at random. There will be beads and dark magic and some colorully attired undead. February 26, 2014 Dage's birthday isn't until Sunday, but he's decided to start celebrating tonight, and he's got plenty of evil goodies to share with everyone! This is the NEW CLASS coming TOMORROW in the first wave of Dage's Birthday Shop.
The quest and monster also both drop rather a lot of XP and gold so it's a good place to farm to approach max level.
