You earn more rewards by doing more damage, thus it follows that you would receive more rewards for expending your stamina on ONE target until it dies to be as high up the list as possible.

Now, if you have an absurdly high amount of stamina you may profit more from getting to the top 1-5 spot on 2 dragons at once, if such a thing is possible.

One thing I can say for certain, the more damage you do the more rewards you get, in DSU our high damage dealers earn a lot more stuff than the other contributors.

It depends on how much damage you can do. So far, from the data I've collected, it seems to be a good idea to aim for around 60-100K worth of damage. That should translate to about 10 reward lines, give or take a few depending on the roll of the dice. Of course, keep in mind that you get nothing if the dragon doesn't die.

Demon Rewards (http://174.37.115.166/cforum/group.php?do=discuss&discussionid=146) and Dragon Rewards (http://174.37.115.166/cforum/group.php?do=discuss&group=&discussionid=59)

I haven't tried to analyse all the data, but the 10 rewards for over 100k seems accurate based on my personal experiences, and it also drops off fairly slowly if you do about 50k you still get around 5-7 items, but 20-30 you only get a handful.

Lots of people don't seem to include the full set of data when it's free-form like that. I'm using Google Docs to make a form and spreadsheet for my dragon-slaying group to make sure they enter all the relevant data. I whipped one up for the forums too, in case anybody wants to use it
