I cannot recall on the rune Dawn has given me. It was a normal looking rune at first and now its a blackened rune and it tells me I cannot recall to that location at this time. :(

I was trying to get the Tutor Statuette for my other account (all of my slots were filled up on it).

I have the same problem. For me, it occurred after I transferred skill points from a soulstone and then fizzled a recall spell targeting the rune.

Anyone know how to fix it?

Did you try to recall on the rune before?

The quest has been broken since the start. When you try to recall on the rune and fail (for whatever reason) the rune is "busted". It is not meant to be like that since the Dark Knight clearly states you can try several times until you defeat him... but still, it will be busted.

So you'd better have a very good recalling skill before you use the rune, or you might use recall scrolls.

No way to fix a busted rune I fear.

Bummer. Looks like I broke my rune, then.

Yup. It looks like my character's rune was busted, too.

However, I made a couple of new character (50 magery, 40 eval, 30 meditation) and gave him a few items to help on mana conservation (and magery jewels) and I was able to clean his clock both times without any problems. I got my statue on the second time killing him.

:)

With the magery jewels and a recall scroll purchased (just for good measure; that tutorial is a pain after the first time) I was able to recall to his hold and fight him within 15 seconds of recalling.

These new player quests were enough of Kingdom Reborn for me. I may log into it when I do some crafting, but otherwise I think I'm sticking with 2D until Stygian Abyss is released.

you can train and fight him in 2D, you only need KR to get the rune.

on europa the statue is worth like 3-4M

Also I'd rather take 50 wrestling with 50 magery, so you dodge blows. You can buy all other skills to 40 anyway :)

I don't know about melee characters. The two times I successfully killed him I was a mage (the other times I died was because I was trying to figure out why targeting my health bar wasn't healing me in KR). I didn't bother training the characters skills, the only skill that went up was my Focus because of the 10 dex I was passively regenerating a whole lot. :)

I put some magery jewelery on my new guy so I was able to cast Mindblast without fail and I'd keep blasting him until he went to heal and when he did I would poison him and let my mana regain. Heal when needed and don't let him hit you (he is pretty slow; horses outrun him very easily).

I dont understand why I fail this quest all the time. I load up my char with 100% LRC and +Magery so i have 100% chance for mindblast. But most of the time the dark knight warps to me and I cant move and have to wait till he kills me and I am back outside. Back outside I sometimes can't move either and have to relog to be able to move.
Somehow I really start to hate KR even though I just started to try it out >.<

Like they said: You only need KR to get the rune, not to fight him. Once you've got the rune, just kill him in 2d.

Unfortunately, I don't have any unused character slots anymore, which means I'll have to get a trial account or buy the Dark Knight statue...

Boo.

Unless...will a GM fix the rune?

Is this a character you are attached to? If not, you can soulstone any skills you want to keep (if that is an option) and then delete the character and create a new one exactly the same as the first. I had to do this to get my statue because I fizzled the recall and my rune went bad.
