This weekend: Battle Maleth, Dragon of Envy
The 7 Deadly Dragons Saga Continues!
Maleth, Shadow Dragon of Envy, holds the legendary Dragon Crown. There’s just one problem - none of the clans accepts his rule. This weekend, log in and face Maleth as the 7 Deadly Dragons saga continues. Take the crown, bring him down, and prevent civil war between the dragon clans!

Legend of the Dragon Crown
Dragons of all elements and races know the legend of the Dragon Crown - only one worth of ruling ALL dragonkind can wear it. Most assumed it was just a myth… until now. Maleth, the Darkness Dragon of Envy, wears the crown and claims the throne.

Right now, civil war on the verge of erupting - even IF the dragons wanted a ruler (spoiler: they don't), they would not choose a selfish, deceptive creature like Maleth.

Last week, your mission to stop Maleth began with:
  • Gaining entrance into Maleth's castle... by any means necessary
  • Quelling an uprising by villagers angry at the draconic destruction
  • Convincing the dragon clans to support YOU instead of their own champions
This weekend, the fight to dethrone Maleth continues:
  • Battle suspicious guards and servants to progress through the castle
  • Take down 3 of Maleth's most trusted warriors as you ascend to the throne room
  • Face down Maleth, Shadow Dragon of Envy with Mariel at your side
New: DragonKing Warrior Set
No matter who holds the crown, we know who the REAL dragon royalty is… you! Find the DragonKing Warrior set in your Featured Gear Shop, available for AdventureCoins until October 6th, 2017!

After watching the final Dragon of Envy cutscene, you'll be able to farm for the pieces of the Prince of Dragons armor set and the Key of Envy.* Or find the DragonKing Warrior set in the Featured Gear Shop in your game menu!

* If you have the Heptagonal Chest from /battleundere, you may start to hear some rustling and tap-tap-tapping coming from inside. Collect all 7 keys (one from each of the 7 Deadly Dragons) to unlock it!

Starting to feel like this 7dd release could have been finished 2 or 3 weeks ago. Feels like I'm watching a TV show that keeps getting ruined by fillers and okay endings to the episodes.

Only one more key until we unlock the chest.
Bad thing is, we need to wait until October to do so.

Also did the PTR event not happen because theres been a lot of talk on twitter about that.

I say bring on more Plague Knight level grinding.
Also does anyone have any wild speculation about whats in the box if its making noise?
I say its a pet or something dumb.

A tapping, eh? Can't help but get the image of us finally opening to the chest only to find a skeleton or something, having succumbed to lack of oxygen

I have to ask, is anyone else having things happen while using VHL?
Im on Artix and my damage sometimes gets super low and I just had a 3 tick DoT of 2300.

It wasnt skills not being up or people helping me. I was struggling to kill WolfWing, Khasaanda, Chaos Sphinx, Chaos Alteon and pretty much every other boss I fought.
Luckily Im not getting the problem anymore since the server restart.

The most logical explanations would be:
1: You deactivated Unchackle and Kneel Before the Nation faded at the same time, leaving you with only half your max damage output for a little bit, if you are fighting smaller mobs, it's hard to activate Kneel before the Nation in the first place. Unshackle + Kneel Before the Nation = 200% damage dealt + some extra crit damage on top. It's something that you generally don't think about when using VHL, but it's what's giving VHL an edge in the DPS department.
There could also have been a Courageous buff from Chaos Slayer in effect.
2: You had an Arachnomancer quadrupling your DoT + a little extra from something else. That's the only way I could see that happening.

I can say that I have not noticed anything like that while playing on my own with VHL.

@flyingmongoose Yea, farming elemental on Artix server. thought it was just me I first noticed it when I used a stable weapon and was not able to hit above 3000 damage so I switchted to unstable and highest I could hit was around 5000 damage. Maybe it got nerfed :/

Please keep in mind this thread is not the place to discuss the PTR power level changes. If you wish to do that, both the 25 Aug Design Notes and the 1 Sept Design Notes threads are relevant. PTR power level changes are off topic in this thread and subsequent posts about it will be deleted as such.

I'm pretty sure that

Elucidas and Mariel's art is the same. Check the third cutscene in /summon.

I thought they would've at least rebuilt the Dragon Crown map to include a way into the castle.


Mariel is revealed to be a Creatioux which are the good versions of the Void Dragons while the Decadere are the bad versions of the Void Dragons that we are more familiar with.

Galanoth doesn't slay Maloth. He still dies, but at the hands of the Dragon Champions offscreen. To recap, the Dragon Champions are Torgat of the Red Dragons, Fressa of the Ice Dragons, Radroth of the Undead Dragons, Nizex of the Water Dragons, Tathu of the Wind Dragons, Lanshen of Yokai Island's Dragons, Ashax of the Green Dragons, Letori of the Faerie Dragons, Nayzol of the Chaos Dragons, and Zathas of the Void Dragons.

As of this point, Glutus, Valsarian, Goregold, Phlegnn, and Maloth are dead while Lascivia is still at large.

Now we got to confront Gorgorath the Undead Dragon of Wrath when it comes to it's release.
