    Stupid dragon scales

    Post by strangejoy on Mon Feb 27, 2012 11:47 am

    Farming for these things is so annoying. It's better than it was in 1.04, but good lord you need to kill a lot of wyverns to upgrade dragon weapons and advance in the covenent. Yes, you can also drop a dragon eye, but you have to wait forever to get summoned.

    The Dragon Eye is equal to nothing... I can imagine the pain to get 80 scales for rank 3..........

    i have no problem getting them with 10 humanity and no ring, i usuall get 2 or 3 every run. but it's really random too, it can be annoying.

    With 10 humanities or using the ring I think you can get 10 scales in about 15-20 runs on the wyverns, it's not that bad but it's very time consuming...

    It's not really that hard, I just hate farming, so I thought I'd whine a bit. happy I had dreams of becoming rank 3, but I think I'll probably abandon that.

    You need a high phys damage weapon. With my STR build I farmed 7 of them in like 10 minutes. The Drakes died in 2/3 hits and they always staggered. But it's still time consuming.

    i have a question, once you get the dragon torso and you abandon the cove but then come back, can you use it even if you dont have a rank?

    Yes, but I KNOW that being in the covenant makes your fire breath stronger and I THINK that it makes your Dragon Roar better in some way.

    I'm using dragon eye at kiln and the summons have been very faster lately, the proiblem you will have to deal against some who will bs while you bow and point down. But I still think its faster than farming drakes. I'm sl 120 right now. At sl 50-60 you can also try painted world

    All my dragon weapons are fully updated, and I have offered 50+ scales, (although I am still awaiting an answer to this question: http://soulswiki.forumsrpg.com/t1855-covenant-rank-ng-etc )

    Here is my run:

    410 item discovery.
    Take elevator down from basin.
    Wipe out first dragon with 2 Great Fireballs and a smash to the face, (second fireball will stagger him).
    Pull second one from the bridge with arrow, wipe out with same method.
    Run half way down bridge and poison the 3 Drakes on the other end with arrows.
    Run back to cliff and kill dragon on the ledge with 4 or 5 Fire Orbs, (don't try to melee, or you, OR HIM, might fall).
    Run back and finish off poisoned Drakes with a dozen or so arrows.

    6 Drakes dead in about 2 minutes. Every second or third run or so will get you 1 or 2 scales.....but every once in a while you'll get lucky and get 2 or 3 a few runs in a row.

    Boring, but extremely easy and effective.

    I'm stealing this method. Excellent idea on the poisoning. Let the poison do its work while you fight the cliff drake.
