Obtaining Ill-gotten Gain in New World

NEW WORLD - This Legendary Item is INSANE and EASY to Farm! MUST HAVE!

You will have to travel to the lower slag mine, south of Eden Grove, and fight a level 55 boss Foreman Harold. Once the boss is beaten, he will drop Ill-gotten Gain for you to loot! 

It is important to remember that in order to get Ill-gotten Gain to drop, players will have to reach level 51 first.

Note: Harold is very weak against Arcane and very strong against Ice. 

Since Ill-gotten Gain is a legendary item, its drop rate is low. Therefore, you may have to persistently fight off the boss and pray to God Almighty for the in-demand jewelry to drop eventually. Also, it goes without saying, you will have to acquire the loot before others.

If you are unlucky, you are looking at spending hours to obtain Ill-gotten Gain but believe us when we say it; this isn’t just another jewelry item.
