dragon forging top weapons HELP

#1ALV9Posted 5/8/2013 10:24:08 PM
i cant seem to dragon forge weapons like Dragon's Vein (Daggers), Dragon's Blink (Longbow), sapfire daggers, dragons glaze (longbow) also some armor equipped... most of them are enhanced to max 3 stars cuz i know the chances of them being dragonforged depending how much enhanced they are... all weapons are maxed out enhanced but some armor are 2 stars... i avoid fighting the offline UR dragon cuz it takes me an hour cuz of its complicated vital spots and i need to be ranger vocation so i can give my ranger pawn only forged and rarified equipment... i fight drakes instead even 2 in a row and seems like they could only dragon forge so much which is tiring lol... finding the dragons in everfall is too much of a hassle, any advice/suggestions?

fight the cursed dragons in bitter black isle. they have the highest dragonforging rate of all lesser dragons,

drakes/wyrms/wyverns all seem to have less than a 10% chance to dragonforge even one piece of equipment while the cursed dragon for me has been around 90% chance of forging any or all pieces of gear i need forged.

Regular drakes/wyverns/wyrms only have an 18% chance to DF at 3 stars, so even lower at less. Cursed Dragons in BBI have a roughly 80-90% chance to DF even if the item has no stars. So just wait til you fight one of them. In fact, you fight one with a required boss, so just keep going.

Place explosive rivet at him when he cast spell he will lower himself then go near detonate it will either cancel his spell or make him land face down and prepare to be... You know what to do.
