Orb & I attempted to kill the Red Ancient Dragon, it went horribly wrong. It was a paragon. We normally can kill paragons after about 10 deaths each, but we do eventually get it down.  This past week, we've come across 2 Red Paragoned, that were just non-stop death-fests. We're lucky to get 1 swing it before we die, so we lored it.


Its HPs are 65k!   Breath weapon attacks are based on HP. They hit at aprox 250-300 each time it lands, which is aprox every 20-30 seconds. Armor ignore hits for around 250-300, multiple times in short succession with a 15-20 second window of non-usage. It throws several firefields in very short succession. Basically, anything it does is grossly OP, then to top it off, we can rarely hit it, we "miss" on our swings 80+% of the time.  The resists were all above 80, but their weapon skills equal to ours.


We've lored paragons periodically in our past, as we learned to fight them, & are aware of the standard. These are well beyond "standard paragons".  These are just ridiculous.


We haven't found a Spirilix in a while, but Im afraid it may be on other prime mobs for our gear level. Please, find & revert/repair this bug. We don't want to have to spend 40k-80k ED for 2 whole new suits, & this is game killing for us.


Thank you for your time & keep us apprised of the situation,


*hugs*

Tips and tactics for Ancient, Gem, Named, and Other Special Dragons.


1) cast a poison field on top of you, as the tiles are then covered it prevents the Dragons Fire Fields from appearing on those tiles.


2) Evasion ability from Bushido. While active it gives you a chance to parry special attacks, such as breath weapons.


3) Stone Cirlce or Energy Fields are great for stopping their advance while you then use ranged weapons and spells to kill them.  Takes awhile.  So use a composite bow for the Armour Ignore ability.


4) Do NOT attempt to melee a special type of dragon, unless you have around 220+ parry skill.  You will just lose at that point.


5) Do NOT use pets on them, they make tasty snacks for the special type dragons.

Yes, thank you for your insight Sucro, but Im reporting a BUG to Owner/Staff, because something has been altered, Im sure unintentionally, which needs repairing.


Orb & I are very old players/members of the server, & very aware of how to kill Boss Mobs extremely fast. Before the nerf last year, I was able to solo kill any of the ancient dragons, without outside help. We took that in stride, but this issue now, is destructive in comparison.

Ok. 


Wish I was at that stage of the game, still working on everything getting socketed.  If I would stop finding other things I want to buy for my crafting and taming it would go a lot faster. Lol.


Best of luck and may the Gods of Phat Loot smile upon you!
