    Default Yes

    I had everything to make and epic but the base item. I ended up farming for 2 nights and got one after probably about 60 runs or so. The best thing to do if you want it for the epic version get some friends or put a LFM up for help.

    This is what you do:

    Everyone on a lvl 20 and solo a Big Top instance on there ow n (everyone break party, go in, and join group again)

    Everyone run to the optional and see if he is there. Let everyone know you got the named and you all leave your instance except the one with the named.

    You go in loot the chest and you got your up to 6 chances. Doing it solo like I did will be very painful....trust me

    Yes, but not recently.

    Helped a friend of mine get his pair back in update 7 or so (when Small Problem seal drops were finally fixed).
    Saw one pulled in an Epic run where we killed him in update 10.
    Helped another friend try to farm it, without any luck in update 11.

    It's a lot slower to farm now since you can't do the "invis and jump" tricks to reach him, and he is not there very often.

    Yes, saw about 4 of them drop the first time I had ever run the optional to get it.

    They should do the end-rewards in the same way as they did with Sentinels. Every 3rd Big Top completion you get to pick from named loot.

    IMO Kron'zek should always spawn on Epic. Likewise the Mask of Comedy optional.

    The drop rate isn't bad on Elite, but even at 20 you'll want a hireling to feed to the first wheel of death (unless you are trapskilled or have evasion), and a way to raise them.

    Just go into the quest on Elite, solo to Kron'zek (check the wiki for where he spawns, and remember not to touch the wheel but to make the hireling do it), and if he's there, kill him. (He has only 1000 or so HP and is a joke). Then ask guildies to join you in the instance.

    Usually, if six people open the chest on Elite, a scimitar will drop.

    I can't agree more with this. The number of times i have run to that stupid encounter on elite is rediculous only to have it not spawn. That was bad enough with being able to jump to those locations now its far worse.

    The elite Rune Wheels can hit for up to 400 if you fail all the saves.

    good to know, I helped a guildy try to get his one night we popped that chest 15 or so times at least with no luck

    If anyone is still farming for the base Kron'zek's Cruelty here are some tips which helped me get TWO :

    1. Run with many friends as possible. Everyone or a couple of you enter different instances to check if Kron'zek's spawned.

    2. Normal or Elite makes no difference as I finally got two bases, once in each difficulty

    3. Clear the ENTIRE rune wheel area of mobs. When I did clear, I notice Kron'zek spawns compared to not clearing the area of mobs.

    The above should not be difficult with a capped toon, preferably an evasion or high HP toon on elite.

    Good luck !

    That is absolutely not true.

    Relax .... I'm merely saying the boss spawns more often if you do clear compared to just run and leave majority mobs behind after doing wheels.

    I understood that. I'm saying it's not true.
