Pwning teh Draggy
# Aug 08 2009 at 7:23 PM Rating: Decent
I was a RDM/WHM, and my friend was a DRG/WAR. As soon as we got in there, I used a Yagudo Drink and he use Pamama Au Lait and a grilled hare, while I cast Protectra. We killed it in roughly five minutes. I used sleep on the Dragon, he killed the Searcher. After the searcher was down, he used ancient circle and spirit surge right away. We had it down to about 1/4 health after a minute of me using Banish and his Jump ability. In the end, I used an ether and chainspell to keep him healed, and we finally killed the Dragon.

Oh and were Taketsu and Twistedx on Shiva.

72Summoner/White Mage (Me- Redpage)

Failure. A few mistakes/points that I have to clarify next time we go in.

1. Tell the WAR not to eat the HP Regen food that I bought for him before we go in because it has a short life span.

2. Tell him again because he did it twice and I only bought him 2.

3. I didn't pop my yagudo drink until it was only the dragon left. I didn't need to, it was just I was trying to cure the Warrior and control my Avatar at the same time, I wasn't able to drink it.

4. My Astral Flow was working very well. Since it was Water's Day, I decided to throw out there Levi since it was his day. I didn't run out of MP, only HP.

5. I got quite a bit of Hate and found it difficult to tell the difference between if the dragon had hate towards me or the warrior because it was facing my direction and hitting the warrior. I didn't quite understand that part. It hit Levi and wasn't facing Levi.

6. Don't buff before you go in because all of your buffs get removed. I took that chance and buffed before going in. No harm done, I had max MP when the level restriction was placed, just no previously placed buffs.

7. Can't buff party members while they are viewing the cutscene.

8. We failed because I caught agro from curing. If we had another person who could cure, it would have been 100% complete. :) Good times.

I told my warrior buddy that when he goes in, try and do this method::::

1. Pop the HP Regen food
2. Seconds later, run in and provoke the Dragon.
3. Start attacking the Eye FISRT, NOT the Dragon.
4. Once you hit the Eye once, pop your 2 hour so you can use every second of it without wasting any of it.
5. Provoke only the dragon, and as often as possible.

I told him I'd pop astral flow, send in levithan for the eye to help, and I'd cure him when he gets hit. I told him I'd do all this while meleeing the eye and dragon because we need as much help as possible for damage. All in all, I'd say I did exceptionally well and that he did also. Our only main flaw that I saw is that I got Cursed and the Dragon took me out in 2 hits.

Dragon caught agro from me while healing him during the Eye half of the battle and Sic'ed Levi on it. I didn't have trouble with that at all and it helped keep him alive longer once the dragon was attacking my Levi.

All was going well until Curse. I didn't think that was going to take me out so fast, but it dropped my HP to 90! That wasn't good. 2 hits, maybe 3 later and I was dead, Warrior was soon after. Dragon was down to about 45%-47% health left and the eye was dead. Another person and we could have done it. Bring player #3 or #4 if you are going in with a SMN/WHM and WAR/MNK. The two of you will most likely be unable to do it alone.

Look on the bright side: I didn't lose ANY exp from dieing out there and neither did my friend. It looks to me like this battle you can try without exp loss, ever.

Soloable as a 25 MNK. Just bring potions and any +attack food. Put on Focus and Dodge, and Hundred Fists the eye. Then once killed, turn to the dragon and keep fighting, occasionally having to use a potion. I did this solo as a 25MNK, and another time 2 years later as a 25MNK with a 21WHM so I wouldn't have to spend money on potions. Just voke the Dragon before attacking the eye, just incase the WHM pulls hate while curing you.

Estimated time: 3 minutes.

Very much possible to duo this one. Myself (WAR 25, MNK 12) and my partner (BLM 25, WHM 12) took it down easily.

I had to eat a couple of things to boost my strength and I did have 2 hi-potion + 2 and 2 hi-potions + 3. But I managed to kill the Eye just before the Dragon woke up. And took most of the damage. Awesome victory. :)

This is my first battle with anything of the sort and I can not seem to get it right. I am a level 13 monk still leveling and could use a hand with these guys. If anyone is interested I am on the Ragnarok sever and could use a hand. Please seek me out Fatherofone.

Too Weak
# May 05 2007 at 1:40 PM Rating: Decent
This dragon is too weak, just duo'd with wife for her Sandy rank 3 as Blu25/Nin12(me)and Mnk24/War12.

We entered the circle and used food and drinks, she used a meat kabob and au lait,I used tav taco, yag drink, au lait and buffed with metallic body, utsu and cocoon.

I ran in and slept the dragon with sheep song, while my wife voked the Searcher and used hundred fist. Dragon woke while Searcher had around 100hp left, so my wife finished of the Searcher and i switched to the dragon, cast sprout smack and wild oats and then just spammed head butt and bludgeon, and we just beat on it till it dropped.

Total time was 5mins 17secs, so not gonna break any records, but we both finished with around 1/2 hp and we were never in any real danger of dieing.
Basic Info man...

Meh....this fight is WAY majorly easy. Already done all three dragon fights. I dont find them that exciting anymore just because they are so easy. The only reason it would be hard is if people werent doing their job like they're supposed to....like the party before my last that I was helping did....

First off, all you have to do is sleep the dragon. That, you'd need a blm or rdm for. They can sit there and keep an eye on the dragon while, the other members being the melee half, go after the eye and pwn its ***** (There is a level cap of 25 by the way, so be sure you have the right level armor for this.)

You dont really need a whm or any kind of potions of any kind, unless like I mentioned in first paragraph someone doesnt do their job properly. Really, a drg would be nice, seeing as it has an edge against dragons....and it has a wyvern to add to the slaughtering.

Basically, send in the blm or rdm, your choice, sleep the dragon, call in the melee team (Only need about one or two good high attack melee jobs for this), silence the eye and than start slaughtering it and than once its dead go after the dragon. You dont need nice armor, nor do you need buffer spells (although I'm not saying you shouldnt get them....), but its really simple. Dont rush in without a plan though, or else YOU WILL DIE. Point made. It's happened before. Make sure everyone is ABLE to enter into the fight and that everyone knows their part by heart before you even make an attempt (You have to be on the rank 2-3 mission or be rank three to fight the dragon). This is coming from a 49 whm who has done all three dragons and has won every battle. >>; Don't think I'm acting cool. Cause this is just simple knoweledge. So, if you arent going "we already know and have done it before and won ourselves", dont think of me as stupid or stuck up. This is a warning and basic info for future attempts by others who are looking for a way....

P.S. DO NOT forget about the requirments for entering the battlefield. This happened to me the first time I tried to enter one when I first got to level 20-25 on whm. We had almost a full party, and only two were able to enter the battle field. They died and me and one or two other were just left sitting there wondering "why?". Well, dont make our mistake and don't forget about that. PLEASE dont make that same mistake. It will cost you time and effort, which you could always be using for more sufficiant stuff.

[b][/b] WHM25/BLM, WAR25/MNK, BLM24/THF (was 25 on the first go)

Took three attempts: Its advised to take potions or higher and, maybe, a few ethers.

Buffs at start included:
WAR: Boost, Defender
WHM: Protectra, Shellra, Blink, Regen

Upon entering the arena, Sleep was cast on the dragon until the searcher was killed by the WAR. During this the WHM cast Paralyze and Slow whilst curing.

Once the searcher was killed the WAR moved onto the dragon and the BLM helped with elemental magic. The WHM done the same as before with a cure about half way (this is when potions are used by the other two). With WAR's 2 hour, the fight is no problem(we didn't have it because we used it on a failed attempt)

ROFL OWNT? Ya Rlmente

ShadowWarriors: Pipip(WHM), Kingdjones(WAR) and Zaziu(BLM)

Me and a Friend duoed this easy, me lvl 25 blu/nin, and a pld/nin. Both elvaan. Just ran in to the fight, the pally ate a mithkabob and took on the searcher, i cast soporific on the dragon, it slept for the whole 90 seconds. The searcher died in around 30 seconds then we rested up mp and hp and destroyed the dragon with over half MP and nearly full HP. Overall a ridiculous easy fight. Just cast wild oats and bludgeoned it to death. And if i need shadow i could stun it with headbutt for a few seconds.

Me and two people from my LS, plus another person that needed it, did this guy easily yesterday. We were BLM/WHM, WHM/RDM, WAR/MNK, and RDM/WHM (me). When we got in BLM slept the dragon, and I lightly debuffed the eye as that was what we went after. WAR voked the eye, BLM nuked it and it died. We rested a sec as the dragon was still sleeping, then WAR voked the dragon and I debuffed it. At 3/4 health, BLM slept it and we rested, with the BLM standing because he had enough MP, he was ready to sleep it when it woke up. Then, when we were ready, we got back up and WAR voked it I debuffed it again as they had wore off and BLM nuked it hard. As it got to 1/4 health I nuked it with Blizzard and Fire then BLM Thunder nuked it and it died. Really easy fight, we didnt go for the record though.

we were helping a ls member do this fight, the whole time we had a MNK who was claiming she could solo the dragon as long as we took care of the eye. Well we get in there, only 4 people in the fight total, the 3 of us beat the crap out of the eye and stand back and watch this MNk beat the ever living hell out of the dragon, dragon took 3/4 of her healt but she was just way too much for it.She only ended up using 2 hi pots the entire fight. Was quite amusing.

Rank 5 myself a LS friend asked to do 2-3 with her. Of course I said yes so she RDM25/WAR and me RDM/PLD went on down to the mines and faces the dragon.

Drinks: Yag
Food: Def Up

Plan was to sleep the dragon, if I failed she would and if it woke up same. While we were fighting the eye I slow, paralyzed and blinded the dragon ready for when we fought it. We owned the eye quite quicly with the dragon only waking up once.

By this point we were both at 95%-100% health and still around 90% on MP.

We auto-engaged the dragon by accident but it didnt mater as it had just woken up anyway. We just used the damage from our swords + en-spells leaving all the rest of the MP for Cures. *remember never cure yourself* hate was shared by healing each other so we both go evenly damaged. Fight lasted 7 mins with me ending the fight with 70% health 0% MP and Rupali (the RDM/WAR) at 70% Mp and 70% HP

Easy. The only thing you have to look out for is the petrafication. It happened to us twice but as RDMs the Pertra ran out quickly enough.

2nd time; we were just leaving the BCNM area when a lvl20 blm (Rutu) asked us to help him, so we did. Same plan but we had no extra def food so it was much harder. We justed some pies that Rupali had on her and that was all. The start was the same as last time but the dragon fight was very close. Kept doing a Heavy stomp that took Rutu
from 100% HP to 10%!!! And took us from about 70% down to about 30%. + it paralized us all >.<

We slugged our way though and ended us all in red for HP and very low on MP. Fun fight though.

Hope it helped. If it did rate up please. a good example on how RDMs are adaptable.
