Master Guide: Farming for The Kestrel Hairstyle! Very Easy! Farm King Amadeo from Crab Alley for hair!!
Farming for a hairstyle? Seems pretty bizarre, right? There are many hairstyles you can farm for, but one I find particularly easy is The Kestrel. All you have to farm is Rank 2 boss King Amadeo from Crab Alley! Here's an easy guide to do so with deck set-up, tips, and a estimated drop rate :)
The Kestrel, 350 crowns from the Crown Shop
Very similar to Rattlebones, Amadeo is a super easy boss to farm for having 385 health and low-level spells. He doesn't even have a mob! :D I recommend farming this boss if your level 20 or up solo. (You have to be at least level 12 to enter anyway.) If you are below, I'd suggest possibly going with a friend. If you're lower you will also have to collect health every time before re-entering.
You can find the king's palace in the back of Crab Alley (map shown below). Easy to get to but yes, sadly you need membership to enter the Alley i: The pricing however to get Crab Alley, Deep Warrens, and Wailing Caverns is 750 crowns, so for nonmembers that is an option :)
I do this deck with all Wizard City farming bosses, and its a fairly simple strategy that works every time :)
1. Buy a cheap deck (I use the level 15 school ones) and call it "Wizard City Deck" with the icon in the top left corner of the deck page.
2. Add in 5 pip or less spells in max copies (I use cyclops, 3 pips) and max copies of enchants. If you don't have enchants (gargantuan, etc.) as a learned spell, you can go learn it from Celestia, buy it in tc, or put in blades. I favor enchants and they are something every wizard should have. They are no pip, don't take a round, and make a difference :D Check out The Untold Spiral's post on What Astral Spells To Train and Not To Train for advice :)
Nothing has a real drop rate, but usually when I farm I get it within 50-70 tries. It takes about an hour if you're very quick, however it may take around 90 minutes.
1. Is the hair dye-able? No, unfortunately the hairstyle is not dye-able in farming. What you get is what you get. Usually, the hair will match at least one character. Or you can buy a party outfit that matches it. The hair may not match the char you were farming for it with, but it should match at least 1/6. The hairstyles come in all variety of colors. I have black kestrel and dark pink and they both matched a char. I also have a light pink in owl and a brown in cha-cha that were also farmed for and fit a char :)
Have fun farming this week :) You might find me in Crab Alley lol Hope you guys enjoyed another fun and exciting post! Look forward to more soon! :)
