I know people say being hit by dragon breath doesn't affect the forging but here is what's happened and is still happening:
Farmed the drake and wyrm in the everfall for two days straight now. No dragonforgeries. Now I did it four times in a row by being hit by breath. Every single time one dragonforgery. All items were at two stars.
Went to estan plains near gran soren in search of a wyvern. Found drake there instead. Breath - dragonforged....
Going to let you know how this goes on.
