How to Get Ill-Gotten Gain
To be able to loot Ill-Gotten Gain, first, you must face the level 55 boss Foreman Harold. He’s located in the Lower Slag Mine of Edengrove region, just south of the Valor Hold Outpost. Nevertheless, the Ill-Gotten Gain earring has a low drop rate since it is a Legendary item, its drop rate is low so you probably will have to fight him more than two or three times. Bringing a friend or two might help speed up the process, but remember, item looting is a free-for-all. Don’t forget that you’ll have to reach at least level 51 for the Ill-Gotten Gain to drop from Foreman Harold.
Similar to Captain Patricia, Foreman Harold is actually very weak against Arcane. With that in mind, make sure you can deal non-physical or magical damage with that particular element. For physical damage, your best bet is Thrust. Avoid using Ice attacks and Strike weapons. Here are the details regarding Foreman Harold’s status:
- Level 55
- Health: 10880 HP
- Kill XP: 128
- Arcane: +30% damage
- Thrust: +20% damage
- Nature: +15% damage
- Ice: -40% damage
- Strike: -15% damage
- Unique Loot:
- Harold’s Rifle
- Ill-Gotten Gain
- Scorched Asher Earring
Good luck on your Ill-Gotten Gain farming attempt and I hope it won’t take you forever to get that equipment in New World.
