After the release of Savage Coast of Turan it quickly became evident that Dead man's hand doesn't scale to veteran players in terms of difficulty and rewards. Funcom since revamped the Dead Man's and now you can enter it in normal or hard (unchained) mode. If you are looking for a quick way to make tokens, get mastery and even make some coin then this place is for you. In fact hard version of Dead Man's Hand is currently the fastest solo content that grants token rewards. In this guide I want to show you the quickest way to beat this dungeon and reap the rewards. It can be done in 10 minutes or so.
You start at the boat. Before you mount up get your kappa out and switch to red buff (critical damage rating) which is best suited for avatar based assassins builds.
Ride to the right corner of the village.
Keep riding through the pass until you run into two pirates
I recomend killing the pirates rather than avoiding them.
When the fight is over jump down, hide and stick to the wall
Either kill the few pirates that are there (I prefer to do that) or just keep stealthing next to wall
Wait for a pirate on patrol and take him out. The rest won't be moving.
Short chat with the boss and get ready to fight him.
Just spank the boss until he starts running. Keep landing the combos on him while on the run. The more you damage him early on the easier the fight will be. Use From The Darkness and Accelerated to quickly close in on the boss.
The last stage of the fight is also simple tank and spank
When the fight is over the boss will just turn green
Don't forget to loot the nearby chest
Mount up and run back to the village. Ignore all the mobs that will be in your way
Back to the pass. At this point you should have shaken off any aggro.
Back to the village
Back to the boat where you have started
Sprint along the beach until you reach the entrance to the forest
Don't stop and ignore any mobs
Keep runing straight ahead
When you reach this point you should have shaken off any aggro you had
Kill 3 crocs
Walk into the pirate's base
Deal with the pirates inside.
Look out for a nasty stun.
Kill the fat warden.
Talk to the boss to start the fight
This is simple tank and spank.
Loot the chest
Mount up and go back the way you came to the camp
Keep sprinting along the same patch
Go back to the village.
In the village keep to the left side until you reach the main bulding which is the tavern
Clean up the mobs there (boobies!)
Talk to the boss to start the fight
This is tank and spank fight (yet again)
Loot the chest nearby
Go inside and walk up the stairs killing the mobs that are there
Loot the secret chest that is on the balcony
Keep to the right until you reach an opening
Keep sprinting until you see the ship
Enter the ship
Run away from the boss when she is using "abhor the weak"
When she got damaged enough she will run to the center to buff up. Use the balistas to stun her.
Spank her when she is stuned or unbuffed.
Here is your loot: 3 tokens and epic mastery pot. The pet drop can be sold on Trader for good coin.
Good stuff. Worth mentioning that Dead Mans hand can be done in F2P mode if you own the Turan adv. pack.
It's a nice way to stay in the game if you don't want to sub. because your playing other games.
One thing.. aoc.wikia.com is probably the most up to date dungeon guide site for AOC. But it needs more contributions. Maybe you could make a post about it, and get more people to contribute etc...
Thanks for the guide! You were a big help for me with the Isle guide, too.
glad you guys like it
You forgot about one chest on a small island near village.
by all means share a screenshot with the rest of the class.
I didn't know about that chest.
There's a island north I think of the village, but to get there you have to swim through sharks.. The shark is just a buff however, if you jump into the water from the bridge for example(press space and jump into the sea) you dont get the shark debuff. and can swim out there and loot chest.
ok found the chest. Interesting stuff.
here is screenshot with location:
There is a shortcut from boss no1 to no2 but you must sprint through savage people with pigs area. U can jump into hill which is in the the back of the pirate camp.
LOL! Managed to do so much damage that Accalia in Unchained Mode of Dead Man's Hand died during first encounter and droped 2 loots 0_o
I have created an assassin just because of you!! thanks! i have hit 80 but I am poor with Greens!! was wondering if you can update the link for obtaining gear to Survive in Khitai as the link seems to be dead
Glad that you have rolled assassin!
The link with gear that you have requested is now fixed and you can find it here:
For the ship fight:
A thing to remember for squishy, is when you free the slaves you will get a three mins buff call "instill power". It gives you +20% damage mitigation and +20% damage multiplier, buff stacks up to 60%.
Nice walk-through :)
There is another "not so hidden" treasure chest in Accalia's village. It is north from the entrance to Accalia's arena, under a small hut.
1 for Accalia, 1 for Vayaspâra, I wonder if there is not another hidden treasure chest for Drostan...
There sure is, I think there are even more. I just wanted to point to the chests that are on the route to end Boss and the ones that can be picked up without too much hussle.
As I recall you need to put down quite few savages to reach that chest you have mentioned,.
Do you know where is the quest giver? I got turan expansion at 80lvl and Most of "!"s are not visible any more, ty!
those are not visible because the zone is for lvl 50 so you out-level the quest (that is why those are not shown).
I know. Do you remember who gives the quest?
Chain runs like this:-
Speak to Tali to make contact with Artus (she is in Khemi)
Speak to Artus to complete this quest.
Go to the west gate to get the 'Witness the attack' quest & speak to the sergeant to get the report.
Deliver the report to the fort (speak to the gate sentry to enter)
Speak to the captain to get the interrogation quest.
Exit the fort and speak to the guard at the east barricade then question the prisoner.
Return to the fort and hand in this quest.
Return to Artus and agree to collect a package for him.
Go to the cove and get the crate, speak to a drunk & return to Artus to receive some sparkling wine.
Artus will now give the starter quest for DMH that becomes the daily repeatable.
Thank you! did not know is part of chain quest...
