Crystawhasiwhosit - That Big Astral PITA Wording Dragon

Postby Ashiwi » Sun Jul 09, 2006 2:30 pm

We whittled that thing down to just-die-already last night, when it worded. Well okay, that was fine, chase it over astral and deliver a death blow, right? No.... You walk in, dragon gets a lick off and words again. The rogues ended up chasing this thing all over astral with backstabs. We even let the dragon take the first swing on the tank at one point, but apparently dragons have no lag with wording where the kill command is concerned.

Unless the point of this was to make it absolutely necessary to finish Astral in order to do this dragon (since we wiped out Astral in the process), is there really a point to this process, or is it supposed to be a giant game of freeze tag? I understand wording a couple of times, but eventually a dragon would stand his ground and go out in a blaze of glory, wouldn't he?

I think it worded a total of what 16 or 17x ? and it wasnt like he was wording, his word was really just teleport, cuz he worded to a diffrent random room in astral every time. This is the 2nd dragon i have seen do this, one was on Ethereal and this one.

All of those dragons will be like that except for the one on prime. Has to do with how they are distributed. Got a possible fix, but will be two-three days before I have time to do it up.

that actually sounds pretty cool. maybe all dragons should learn to 0* teleport instead of word!

Changes are in for these, so hopefully no more 0* teleporting for them.
