Getting ready for your Legendary

You want to make your Legendary weapon and you don’t know what to do first? This guide is for you, it will help you get this Legendary with no hassle. Trust me, anyone can get one rather easily and even you can get one within a month if not a few weeks. I will guide
you to get this highly coveted weapon. Now, let’s get started!

Character Setup

Your first step before starting anything to make your legendary would be to set up your character to be as most efficent as possible while farming. How can you make it efficient? Well, you will need tons of Magic find equipment!

Magic Find Gears Required:

[Superior Rune of the Pirate] crafted by Tailor (400) or bought from Tradepost

[Superior Rune of the Traveler] bought from Tradepost

[Superior Sigil of Luck] crafted by Artificer (400) or bought from Tradepost

[Exquisite Opal Jewels] recipe bought from Jeweler NPC. Is it too expensive? craft/buy [Ornate Opal Jewels] instead.

You will put these Runes on Magic find armor named Traveler with 3% MF such as the following image.

Magic Find

Finally, you’ve completed your magic find gears), but it’s not over yet with magic find! Ensure that you get Omnomberry Bars, it will grant you with an additionnal 30% Magic Find and 40% Gold from monster (it pays itself overtime!).

Gift of Exploration

You may do this gift while you are leveling your character, but I recommend to do this when you are level 80 with all your Magic find gears. It will provide you with a lot of items to help you at the same time level your discipline to level 400 which is required to create the Legendary Weapon.

Gift of Battle

The easiest way to get your 500 Badges of Honor is from the Jumping Puzzle located North West of Battlegrounds and near the keeps in Eternal Battleground. You do these 3 puzzles every day to receive ~5 Badges for each puzzles (15 Total) per character. You should do them every day with 5 characters (recommended warriors with Horn skill trained). Once you’ve completed the puzzles on all your charaters, it ensure you with 75 Badges per day. Note: Jumping puzzle are the same in all Battlegrounds. I highly recommend to watch this video on How to complete the puzzles.

Karma

The best way to get your Karma will be from Events. You need a lot of Karma to make your Legendary and to make it faster than it usually takes, you want to get yourself bundles of Karma Booster. It will grant you 578 Karma instead of 378 you normally receive from one Event. It also cost only ~20 silver each Karma Booster when you buy a bundle and a booster last 1 hour. The booster is cheap and shows great results in the long run.

Event Tag

You want to be efficient while doing Events and therefore you want to participate in as many events as possible. When you feel that you’ve contributed enough, switch to the next Event and repeat. It will also help you reduce your Diminishing Returns which will surely hit sometime. Whenever you Hit DR, I highly suggest to switch characters and do other objectives such as Badges of Honor.

Cursed Shore Events

Cursed Shore is the best place to obtain your Karma required for your Legendary weapon. You will always stay in the north part of the map. Always check your Map when you see a contested town such as Main camp Penitent, Shelter and Jofast. Remember to do Event Tag’ing, switch when you’ve sufficiently contributed and also helps reduce your DR. Refer to the image below and the following events description.

Karma Route

Events

Join a Party to know when an event is up!

Defend Penitent Camp ( 1 )

This is a good event to Tag and move to the next one if necessary. It also triggers “Escort Veteran Pack Heart”.

Escort Veteran Pack Heart ( 2 )

Starts right after “Defend Penitent Camp” Event ends. This event ends quickly, ensure to get there asap and hit the mobs. Sometimes, the event sometimes does not start right after Penitent.

Defend Shelter Camp ( 3 )

The event starts by being contested and usually spawns alongside with Penitent. This particuliar event spawns Spiders and Wraiths which drop nice loots. You may stay a bit longer than usual while doing this event.

Defend Jofast Camp( 4 )

This is the fastest event amongst all the events you will be doing in that area. Only do this event when there isn’t any other events around.

Defend R & D Camp ( 5 )

You will notice when R & D event starts when it is being contested in your map. Often, this event begins when Plinx, Risen Gladiator and Broodmother are already up. Therefore, you may Event Tag to ensure you get credits in the events.

Escort Rakkan ( 6 )

Rakkan event doesn’t occurs often and is a chain event. After you’ve completed this event, the Broodmother event will trigger.

Kill Veteran Broodmother ( 7 )

As mentioned this event will be triggered when Escort Rakkan will be completed. It’s a fast event and therefore important to participate. We love easy Karma!

Kill Champion Broodmotherf***er ( 8 )

You may do this event when nothing else is up, or tag it.

Kill Champion Gladiator & Contender Event ( 9 )

This is 2 events together and the first part you must kill 3 contenders. They spawn Embers around them and you will get great loot from those Embers. Therefore, try to AOE them as much as possible to ensure drop. The second part a Gladiator will spawn, you may tag him and leave.

Defend Plinx ( 10 )

You will notice sometimes that people will call Plinx when he is up in map chat. This event is really important, because it’s the first part of 5 events! Always ensure to be around the area whenever you can, trust me you don’t want to miss this chain event. Defend him while he repairs and it last 2 minutes.

Escort Plinx to Beacon ( 11 )

This second part often triggers other events such Defend R & D Camp, Gladiator and Escort Rakkan. This event is essentially great for loots and you may stay or do Event Tag.

Defend the BACON ( 12 )

The third part of the Plinx events, it’s important to not Event tag while doing this event to ensure bacons.

Escort Plinx to Caer ( 13 )

You’ve completed Defend the Beacon you will escort Plinx to Caer. You will get insane amount of loot from this event. Try to tag as most monsters as possible during this event.

Kill Risen Abomination ( 14 )

This being the last part of Plinx and also your timer to know when Plinx event will restart. He takes a while to kill, you may or not Event Tag, and when he’s dead count 5-6 minutes. This is how long it takes for Plinx event to restart and try stay near Plinx area when the time is up.

Conclusion

You will often runs around like a chicken with no head and jump in all those events while blindly throwing all your weapons everywhere to hit something. It will be efficient area, provides the most karma in the shortest amount of time and also be in a party while farming.

The following video shows a player farming Karma as explained earlier. You may note on how he tags as many events as possible and how efficient it can be.

Gold

Everyone has his own way to make money and it may be annoying for some people. How can we afford a precursor, etc? It may be easier than you think if you already know how to farm karma. You will farm near 1 million karma and complete your map at 100% with Magic find gears and therefore 150-250 Gold is not impossible to earn. You will find plenty of rares and exotic to reach your goal and ultimately get your Legendary weapon!

Tips:

Price Check your loots on Tradepost before selling/salvaging items.

Event Tag in Cursed Shore with Auto-Loot Enabled in Options and to avoid Diminishing Returns.

Precursor can wait, get everything else first.
