  • does it matter who gets last hit?

    a friend of mine told me that in order to get the best items from a dragon fight, the summoner of the dragon had to deliver the killing blow. does anyone know if this is true?

  • #2
    Not sure, but I've been in on 3-4 successful fights and the only one where I got one of the special items (needed for the epic helm in Alchemy) was when I delivered the killing blow. I haven't yet summoned one myself, though, and my sample size is small enough that it could have just been luck I got it that time.

      I don't get it. Why would your friend lie to you ?
      Ask them for their evidence if you don't believe them. I am sure if they are a good friend and say things like that then they have hard evidence to back it up.

      I have The Helm of Dragon Power and have never summoned a Dragon myself but that does not prove/disprove anything.

        I have summoned a gold, got highest damage, delivered last blow and did NOT get alchemy piece for helm.

I didn’t think anything of it at first, but as I prayed about it and was able to mentally go through all the images of the female characters in the game I realized the there had been a shift. Fanciful characters with traits like blue skin and hair where being replaced with those of a more Anglo or Caucasian decent, with large busts and very scantily clad."

          I theorize the amount of damage determines your rewards, by percentage. The greater your percentage, the greater your reward.

          I had close to 20 gift items when I was lead killer on a dragon three times.


          I have not finished second, have lost lots of sleep, so I do not know what finishing lower does.

            I havent worked it out either.

            My stats so far are;

            4 Gold, 1 Dragon Helm (I slew one and didnt get a dragon helm from it)
            4 Frost, 1 Dragon Helm (again I slew one and didnt earn a dragon)
            2 Red, no Dragon helm
            1 Emerald, 1 Dragon helm. (I did slay it, and I inflected 33% of the damage out of 13 fighters)

              I got the kill on a A-red, was middle on damage, was low lvl. I did not get anything special.

                The three drops of specials I got....#2, #9,#3 in damage. The three times I was the damage leader I got nothing as far as special drops. IMO and IME, the damage you do determines the rewards you reap, not your damage ranking.

                  she got the info from one of the dragon guild group leaders. she forwarded me the e mail she got and he DID say the summoner needed to get the last hit, but didnt provide any proof. all i know is ive been in over 10 fights, usually in the top 5 and a couple times as the top hitter, and no dragon items... so i was curious as to if anyone else had heard of this

                    CORRECTION. I did earn a Dragon Helm by slaying a Frost Dragon.

                      It's conjecture based on very limited data. The official FAQ within Castle Age says, "The more total damage you do to the monster, the better chance you will have to get better rewards. Keep in mind the faster you kill the monster, the better chance you will have to get better rewards." So, there's a reasonably good chance that the total damage you do and the time it takes to kill the dragon are going to matter to your rewards. (However, even the official Castle Age documentation isn't always right.) The documentation doesn't say anything about rewards being affected by summoning or getting the last hit on the dragon, and so far, the data doesn't seem to show any significant support for either condition improving your rewards.

                        All the rewards are secondary to what should be your aim.... getting the 4 peices that make the helm.

                        Imagine this situation ( It is all theoretical )

                        You give 100% damage to a Blue Dragon you stand 100% chance of dropping the helm piece.
                        You give 50% damage to Blue dragon 1 and 50% damage Blue to dragon 2. You stand a 25% chance of NOT getting the helm piece. ( 50% chance of getting it once and 25% chance of getting it twice... if allowed )

                        This is just theory and pure %age chance to drop based on damage done. The devs may have slipped in other factors into the formula but there is little way of telling and very hard to work out i.e. higher chance if top slayer, summoner, final kill, time left etc.

                        I doubt if dropping is pure random. ( we would have heard of a one hit wonder dropping a piece by now). From the slayings I have read you need to be delivering a significant amount of damage. Some people have given as little as 50 000 damage to a gold and received the piece. Others 200 000 to a blue and not got it.

                        If you want the piece, I would reccomend concentrating on one dragon with all your stamina for the best chance. Nothing is certain but I believe you can improve your odds.

                        I have the Helm and are currently trying to kill blue dragons to see if I can collect the 4 pieces again.

                          by far slaying 2 dragon
                          in my first run, land on #3 top damager, not got the piece
                          the summoner, which land only #6-7 got the piece

                          so i think the summoner got the helm piece, so summon my own
                          and land only #8 place, not got it either, some friends in rank 2 say he got the piece.

                          so the formula is still confusing to me,

                            Not true. I have help a friend with a gold dragons, although I'm not the one with the heavy damage dealers nor the top damage dealers, in fact I was the last one.

                            Guess what I got? Firewall.

                            It doesn't matter who deals the last blow, matters most who contribute the most. The top damage dealers around 1~5th is likely to get better rewards. Not the last player landed the killing blow.

                            I have fought another friend's green dragon, landed a killing blow, but the rewards isn't as great as you imagine if you thought you kill the dragon with the deadly strike.

                            I hope this can be a references, if you need that specific items, you gotta work on it

                              Ya totally not true. I have probably the worst luck so far as I have 15-20 dragons down and only 1 piece. my friends have downed 2 dragons and gotten 2 pieces off them too.
