I've heard of some people killing him in the late 20's. I was 32 and it took me about 10 min, managed to hit him once in the heart after he fell over with my warriors Arc of Deliverance using the Malevolance (Spelling) which has an ice attribute, took 2 1/2 health bars off of him.

So to get another dragonforged I need to kill a dragon? Also is it random what gets upgraded?
For the lesser dragons (that Drake, and later Wyverns) it's random, yes. Each item you have equipped will have a 15% chance of getting Dragonforged - some have stated that they need to be upgraded to at least One Star first, though.
