this morning I fought someone in the raid, but when I read the stats, he had An Alpha Serpent as a warrior....
The statistics is above the Cronus....

Is it true ?
If it is a new warrior, how ca I get it ?

Thanks....

Yep, dropped from the new Alpha Bahamut. I've got an Alpha Emerald myself.

Power creep -- is it in you?

Thanks all for the explanation...

I will try to get one...

How much damage should be targeted to get the Alpha Serpent ?

It's random but the general trend so far is that lowballers need not apply.

Wow.. it means that the Alpha Serpent was very rare items.
In order to get it, we should take a very high damage to the monster and percentage to get it will be bigger then....

Will try that method first eventhough I am in low level ( Level 50 ).

One day, this conversation will happen.

<me> Dude, remember Cronus?
<somebody> Wasn't that the hydra thing people killed back in the day?
<me> yeah. Then they replaced it with the Alpha Serpents.
<somebody> lolserpents. L2farmalphadragons (150/150).

At your level it would be a huge waste of stamina to try and get the Alpha Serpent. You do what, around 10k dmg/PA average on an alpha bahamut? In order to have a chance at the serpent you'd need to do at least 400-500 PA, that's 2000-2500 stamina on one single monster. And then the chance you'll actually get it is still not very large. I would wait a couple more levels and complete achievements first and do other stuff.

I have done a little bit over 10 million in damage on an alpha bahamut which will be killed in just a few hours. I'm hoping that that will be enough for at least one of the serpents :) maybe a crystal or two as well :) and maybe the gauntlets too :)
One can at least hope ;)

I'm taking on 3 Bahamuts at the moment. I have yet to see the gauntlets, which I need to make my trophy VolK. Ironically, I have no problems balancing between them because I heal as a warrior in one, attack as a rogue in the second and the third I can do nothing since as a rogue I cannot heal and apparently no one else is healing either and the team health is down to nothing.

Not true, I know people who got one doing 'only' 6-7M damage.

The alpha bahamut I were in is now dead and I did 10.53 million in damage which resulted in 3 epic and 1 legendary. I got the alpha emerald serpent and I also got the gauntlets finally. they have evaded me so far but now they are mine. now I only need one pair more so I can create the volcanic knight. I did not get any crystals though for my second bahamut. But all in all a good haul :)

I got an Alpha Emerald (65/65) with 5.89 mil activity. I was a cleric so a big chunk of that came from healing.

alpha emerald: (65,65)
alpha sapphire: (70,70)
alpha amethyst: (75,75)
alpha ancient: (80,80)

I only have the emerald though.

Level 150+ seems to have 15M dmg minimum for these Alphas

Did 26M+ and got an alpha sapphire (70,70)
Did 22M+ and got an alpha alpha amethyst (75,75)
Did 20M+ and got another alpha amethyst (75,75)

I say 15M because someone else in the Lv 150+ tier did 15M+ dmg and got the alpha ancient (80,80)

I still need the alpha ancient (80,80) and the alpha emerald (65,65)

Wow... it seems hard o me to get one of the Alpha Serpent for now... if the condition should have 10 million damage on the monster... :(
I am still in level 52.....

i have to disagree. i have noticed many times where low levels actually get better drops. seen that with wall of fire & hydra prometheus drops... low level were easily getting it...

i suspect the drops are also based on your level grouping.

5,510,636 activity, all damage -- I was a rogue and Deflection never came up at a time I was able to add to it.

You have been awarded with: Blazerune Ring! [attack: 7 defense: 10] X3
You have been awarded with: Skullfire! [attack: 16 defense: 16]
You have been awarded with: Volcanic Helm! [attack: 32 defense: 14]
You have been awarded with: Alpha Red Serpent! [attack: 80 defense: 80]
You have been awarded with: Volcanic Emerald!

Pretty nice haul if you ask me.

2 more ABombs done - another Alpha Emerald and emerald gem. Still no gauntlets though. Getting the feeling I'm doing too much damage. :(

You are right! At my level 134 and a total damage of 7.9 million. Nada! no legendary drop. Its not worth the sweat and toil......need higher damage, 25+K on 10 stam doesn't seem to be enough....

i'm pretty sure its a chance drop..

my first alpha i got an alpha saph.. cant remember the dmg and it's already gone so cant check, but i KNOW it wasnt near 20m.. probably was close to 5m or maybe even less.
second alpha i did just over 7m activity and got a bunch of purples but no legendary.
(lvl 176)

my first alpha netted the artifact and 2 volcanic crystal, doing over 9M almost 10M damage, pretty nice loot i said
but then my cousin whos doing the alpha with me, doing only about 6M damage, tells me that he got a saphire :(
both of us is over 150, i'm 195 and he's 170ish
so i think its just luck
me myself would be furious if i don't get any legendary doing over 10M damage :)

I got an Alpha Sapphire from doing around 4 million dmg. Generally speaking you will need to do a lot of damage to get high end items like this. Then again, I've gotten a Prometheus head from doing 10k damage on a Cronus. This game is a lot more random than most people would like to believe.

Nice stats for the Alpha Serpent.... better than Cronus...

I had made my damage to 2 million, but still got no Alpha Serpent...
Is it so difficult to get them ?

Will the devs make an easier way to get the alpha Serpents ?

Maybe, but by that point the alpha serpents will probably be considered a "worthless gutter trash not worthy of your spit" unit. Power creep -- is it in you?

I agree with you Azrael...
I think the Alpha Serpent is not so good if you focused to get it...
Just wishing as a bonus of killing the Alpha Bahamut...

Trying to do the best damage to all monster... and hoping for the bonus ( Epic and Legends )... hahaha...

you better load up on the antacids then because 10 million far from guarantees a legendary. it's more like a coin flip at that damage level.
