I decided to kill some time when waiting on a friend to show for up for an MQ turn in at Xanuusus for his Earthcaller. So I decided to kill the dire griffon/ plains dragon..Popped aimshot disc..hit him about 8 times for between 2.1k and 5.8k, then 2 fatal bow shots for 203k+ each..one dead dragon..took all of about 20 seconds to deal about 460k dmg on him..seems range weps are the wtg..even though he summons. I do have rk12 HS, so I'm guessing he's classed as an animal. Dropped Plains Dragon Crystal. Later on I tried the same thing with 'a mountain dragon"..which spawned from a dire panda, and yielded SAME results...2 hits for 203k+...8-9 hits totalling about 36k..one more dead dragon...Note to bards out there getting their 1.5's: recruit a ranger with headshot rank 12 or better and save yourself a major headache ...and time lol.

soloed him easy (well - with healer merc) 2010 as a 85 wizzy
resisted all his spell efforts
he resisted some of mine so lures a good idea
yes he summons - but was hitting me for about 1000 at a time - easy for merc to heal me

why did i kill him? <shrug> because he was there! (and noone else in zone - im guessin someone had a go at the dire griff and spawned him and thought oops!)
Not such a beast anymore

Duo'd this morning (or tonight, depending on what you consider 12:30am) by an 82 bard and paladin for an alt bard.

Bard almost solo'd it, paladin showed up at 50%.

Bard - level 82, Defensives maxed through Secrets of Feydwer, All song and instrument aa's, 2.0 in hand. Anguish Gear or Equiv in all slots. approx 3300ac.

Paladin - level 82, dressed and AA'd in a similar sense. Once she got agro only one heal was needed for the rest of the fight. approx 3700ac.

just because something is a raid mob doesnt mean its triggered.

raid mobs do spawn.

and if it is a triggered raid encounter, then it was probably still up because the people that attempted it died.

although he is probably 1 groupable like most(not all) epic 1.5 mobs.

casters info

26 heads

5 healers (1 cleric, 4 druids)
1 MA (warrior)
1 SA (sk)

Coming from a healers pov (druid), keep ALL casters far far away from this guy. Have 10 junk buffs lined up then the good stuff. MA and SA need to have at least 2 clickie buffs on them for the dispell which is unresistable. The 1.5k DD is resistable however.

Druids dot'd and kept up the MA and the only cleric we had. No one died :)
1 group

Anyone know if he's slowable? I hear he's very Magic resistant so if that wouldnt work would Disease based shammy slow work better?
RE: Slowable?
# Apr 04 2005 at 9:03 PM Rating: Decent
Yes,use disease based slow. He is so very highly MR that he resists lifetaps.

The spell info says the AE is targetted with a range of 200. We had casters OoR from behind the dragon who were still in range of the AE. So that part doesn't seem right.
RE: Slowable?
# Jun 06 2005 at 12:07 PM Rating: Decent
The targetted means its range is calculated using the spells target. In this case, 200' centered around your tank.

Directional AEs have a different listing.
Tank w/out buffs

Get a tank that can tank it w/out buffs 'cause he dispells too fast to reliably clicky =p

Ran into him today - quite a surprise to see him here. White to a 68, cons indifferent. Located just NW of the druid ring in NK: -2441.54, -731.17.

Don't worry, you can't miss him.
Not lvl 70

was running around North Karana looking for highland lions for HQ pelts when this guy popped up on track. decided to go check it out cause I had never seen a dragon in the game yet being only a lvl 34 Dru (which is my highest toon). Conned red (no surprise) and indiferently (which did surprise me). asked my guild if they had any info on it and no one seemed to know anything so I decided to attack it and see if I could do ANY damage at all, not surprisingly I died in a matter of about 3 seconds. went like this

you begin to cast ensnaring roots
Your target is immune to run speed changes
Your target resisted your ensnaring roots
Thunder echoes in your ears, you are engulfed in lightning. You take 1500 points of damage.
you have been slain by a plains dragon
returning to home point

ouch!!! oh well at least I can say I tried LOL
What did he drop?
# Sep 30 2004 at 6:16 PM Rating: Default
Could someone tell me what he drops that is worth this fight. So i know if i should ask for a raid on him

He drops a crystal needed for the Bard Epic 1.5. If you're a bard and you want your Prismatic Dragon Blade, then you should ask for a raid on him.
Just did him

we just killed him with a small raidforce of about 20 VT / GOD equipped players.
He will proc a 1500 DD or so, and dispell 2 buffslots. Very nasty. Using 2 clickies helps a bit.
Good healers can keep a decent tank alive quite well, but someone else needs to keep
the healers alive, or you will wipe. (We did the first time, got him on second try.)

CAN AND WILL hit for 1900, possible quads or doubles, if not hes a bloody fast lil guy, hit me 9 times in about a second.

AE can be spell runed against cuz it hit me for 1200.

can be slowed by a 65 bst

will only agro you if you attack it

dont know about how much hp it has as i didnt last very long against it solo

AE is front only

looks like a floating human but is apparently a dragon.

AE hits from behind too, both at melee and casting ranges.
RE: a plains dragon
# Sep 16 2004 at 1:04 AM Rating: Decent
id say, after taking a group to take him out that his attack is quite low as he only hits about 4 out of 9 times
