    Place your usefull hints here to help other people.

    I start with a few. You can add more later.


    -If you have a lumberjack a cook and scribe you can safe a lot of gold or make a lot of gold.
    Make bark with a cook into woodpulp. Then make blankscroll from woodpulp.
    Only 100 bark can turn into 500 blankscrolls!


    -Get yourself a Endless Decanter of Water from a water ele. Just trow water pitchers at a water ele untill you get a pitcher back.Link one of the picthers inside your house to a water trough . These picther very usefull for cooks and plant growing so you never run out of water.


    -Serpent Pillars:
    To travel from the Trammel/Felucca side to the Lost Lands say: doracron.

    East of Trinsic: 110 49'S, 116 51'E
    West of Jhelom: 145 22'S, 63 46'W


    To travel from the Lost Lands to Trammel/Felucca say: sueacron.

    East of Ophidian Lair: 36 7'N, 2 15'E
    West of the Desert: 30 50'N, 47 23'W


    -To Travel to Papua can be reached by saying 'recdu' when standing on the pentagram in the Moonglow mage shop. Return to Moonglow by saying 'recsu' while standing on the pentagram in the Papua mage shop.


    -For speeding up fishmonger quest mark a rune near the fishmongers on each dock. You don't need to sail all the way to the harbor to deliver fish. Just make sure you cross the closes server line and then recall to the docks.
    This safes a lot of time if you have a slower Britannian ship. ;)

    -For best success to get niter/saltper is to wear a luck suit. The higher the better.It makes a bug difference. Before leaving to a dungeon touch the luck statue for extra luck.
    If after 2 digs the niter deposit don't show up then move on to a next spot.

    I like mining in the Abyss near Suteks house. You do need to target the ground there.

    - Try to join the general chat channel. Always handy if you need help or have questions. Always a good place to find out about playe run event or EM events.

    - Regulary check the towncryers at the stairs at Luna for upcoming Em events or the Em webpage: Welcome… Willkommen… or forum :Drachenfels EM Forum - Stratics Forums

    Did you made a wrong choice in clothing for your vet reward?
    Or maybe you want something else then your cloak?
    Or you want now to change it for a gargoyle.
    Well you still got a chance to make a change.
    Go to the Lyceaum in moonglow.
    There is a chest on the table to change your clothing.

    Knowing if there is a EM event you have to keep a eye out on the top of these Drachenfels Stratics page to the sticky treat "Em current events".



    Also on the Official Drachenfels Em webpage


    And the Stratics EM Drachenfels forum.


    When there is a event i usually start telling it about a half a hour before the event star in General chat.

    not entirely true.. you can skip complete newbieness by asking seasoned veterans for advice.

    otherwise true. :)

    Also, double and triple check all items are insured/blessed and be very pessimistic about how much you going to die when checking bank balance. or you might regret it.

    Never use a shield with bushido, it significantly reduces parry chance.

    A tip to help solve the lotus puzzle.​

    Take a piece of paper near you . Give each path a number from 1 to 6.​

    [​IMG]

    The wait till you see the path turn light. Quickly write down what you see like.​

    Example :R2 B1 P6 G4 G1​

    Would mean Red 2 Tile then Blue 1 Tile then Purple 6 tile and then Green 1 Tile.​


    When you see a tile stay white longer then normal it means you need to press it 2 times in a row. ​


    It helps if you can't memories the very long ones.​

    What I have just recently learned:
    You can dye metal chests (for example those recovered from a shipwreck) with the new metal dye tub. Gives some interesting colours.

    Taken from Stratics: http://vboards.stratics.com/uhall/249194-epiphany-armor-%40-tomb-kings.html



    "Hi all,
    Just a FYI about all the epiphany armor pieces (human/gargoyle)(good/bad)
    Drops from Niporailem The Thief.
    It drops a random piece epiphany armor each time you kill him.
    Drop rate is 100%, so it is NOT rare anymore.
    Reason for me to post this is people are selling on vendors as Non-spawning rare armor pieces, which they are not!
    I thought it was a bug but found out later from Messana that it is infact an easter egg from PUB 71.
    So if you didnt complete your sets, dont get ripped off, just visit the Tomb Of Kings and kill Niporailem. "

    Best way is with 2 tamers. One fighting the boss. The otehr focus on killing the summons.


    Boss drops items that unravel into relics. :)

    You want some things to test on Test Center.

    Just copy your own character to TC.

    Here is a guide: Character copy


    As a bonus after you done a copy, in your title menu you will find a extra title "of Drachenfels" or your shard you copy it from.

    You can customize your own paperdoll title or name above your head with the title menu.

    Open it with context on your in game character.

    Try it out, You can all kinda titles and combinations. :)

    There is a very big runelibrary in the player run town called Drachental.

    [​IMG]

    Seven did a lot of work to make it as complete as possible.

    [​IMG]



    Drachental can be found North of Malas.

    Feel free to visit our town. :)
