Scales are a resource you will need to V rising to craft endgame armor. When you first start looking for scales, you might not know exactly where to look, but we’re here to help. In this guide we will look at where you can find ladders.
It will also include the best ways to farm this material, as well as what you can do with it. The ladders are in the higher level areas, so be sure to bring powerful weapons and strong armor Before leaving.
Where to find scales
Scales can be found in the cursed forest, located in the upper right corner of the map. This is a small area with enemies all going above level 50.
In this area, you will be able to find several enemies that drop scales, which you can see below.
- The Duke of Balaton
The Duke of Balaton is a giant frog enemy, which is level 62. It’s a pretty high level and it takes a while to respawn, so we don’t recommend farming ladders by beating the Duke.
If you prefer not to engage in combat, you can also fish scales. Fishing is not a guaranteed method of obtaining scales, but you will have a chance of obtaining this material.
To fish for scales, we advise you to head towards the Brighthaven Docks. This location is on the western edge of the Silverlight Hills, facing the water.
Here you can fish for rare materials, including scales. Before you start fishing here, you may need to eliminate any guards or citizens that are in the area.
Advice for agricultural scales
There are two main places you should go if you want to farm for scales effectively.
The first location is the Spider Cave. This is a large area, located in the center of the cursed forest, which houses Ungora the Spider Queena level 60 boss.
Walking through the cave of the spiders, you will encounter many spiders that drop up to 10 scales at a time. Keep in mind that Ungora being at level 60, the enemies accompanying him in this area will also be high level. If you choose to engage in combat with Ungora, be prepared for the swarms of spiders that will come to her aid.
In addition to farming at the Spider Cave, we recommend going to the Swamp of greed. This is the northernmost area of the Cursed Forest, filled with earthworms and frogs that drop huge amounts of scales to collect.
An earthworm can deposit up to 100 scalesallowing you to quickly gather a few stacks of this material.
What to do with scales
Now let’s see what you can do with your scale.
You will need scales to craft the Dawnthorn armor set. This is an armor set that you will learn after defeating Octavian the Militia Captain for the first time. Octave is a level 58 boss that can be found in Dunley’s Stronghold in Dunley Farmlands.
After defeat, you can craft the Dawnthorn Armor at Sewing bench. Each piece in this armor set requires 160 scales to craft, but this will decreases if you place your sewing bench in a closed room with a sewing floor.
Overall, you’ll need a lot of ladders, so we suggest spending a few nights between the Swamp of Greed and Spider Cave.
