The Ur Dragon, an immensely powerful undead dragon is located in the Chamber of Lament in the Everfall beneath Gran Soren. Defeating this beast online requires multiple encounters & the combined effort of players around the world in an asynchronous form of battle: all damages done by all who fight this creature will be consolidated by the server, but you cannot see the other players who are also fighting it at the same time.

When you enter the Chamber of Lament in the Everfall or via the special Rift Stone at Starfall Bay in Cassardis, you will have a chance to battle the Ur Dragon. You will then be greeted by 3 randomly generated pawns. Kill these pawns in order to summon the Ur Dragon into the arena. You will have 8 minutes to battle the creature after which he will fly & the damage you've done will be uploaded to the server for consolidation into its global health.

When Ur is summoned, he will appear with varying amounts of Hp. Donít be alarmed as he is not healing himself. A generally accepted theory (as proposed by some GameFAQs members) is there are 4 different Ur Dragons in 4 different servers, with their own Health Points. If one of these versions is killed, we will then enter Grace Period. There are also instances that the server redistributes Urís health in the case that one of the versions has a considerably lesser amount of health compared to the other versions. This is done to prevent the players from concentrating on the Ur with the lowest Hp.

The Ur dragon is weak to holy so it's best to use a holy weapon or bring a pawn that has holy boon/enchantment. You can only do damage when hitting the glowing spots (weak points) throughout its body, when you break one it drops loot. Be sure to check the color of the blood that comes out when you attack the creature. If it is purple, it means you are doing damage. If it is grey/white, you are not doing any damage. You have to maneuver yourself to the glowing spots so you will draw purple blood.

Eventually, as the players around the world continue to fight, Urís global health will decline. When the creature is killed by anyone, it will be set to a dead status, and we will then enter Grace Period (GP). Itís a time when you can deliver a killing blow to the Ur Dragon and earn good rewards. GP is short, only about 30 minutes or less so timing is vital.

When you enter the Chamber of Lament during GP, you will encounter the Ur Dragon with hardly any Hp left with some or all of its hearts lit up. You will have to destroy all of its hearts in order to kill it. Once all of its remaining weak points are destroyed, you have technically delivered a killing blow.

Grace Period is divided into two; Hard Grace Period and Soft Grace Period. Hard GP is when Urís hearts need to be dealt with considerable amounts of damage before it will be destroyed. Hard GP usually happens during the early part of GP. As Grace Period is nearing to its end, we will eventually have a weaker Ur Dragon with almost no hp left. This time, all of his hearts can be destroyed with a hit or two. We call this Soft Grace Period. But please note that Soft GP may not always be present in every Ur Dragon Gen; there are Gens that have no Soft GP at all.

When Grace Period is over, a new generation will be spawned and all the participants in the Ur-Dragon hunt who delivered a killing blow will have their names and play times listed in the stone tablet located inside the chamber while all those who participated in damaging UR but missed GP will have contribution rewards instead.

Disclaimer: A lot of the statements above are speculations based from observation. There is no confirmation from Capcom.

At first glance, he seems slightly squishier than last gen. My bloodlust wasn't active though, so I had a hard time gauging him.

10.95

My initial assessment may have been off. He's still at about 10.8 or so.

If the dragon is bleeding purple when you hit him, then you are doing damage. He just has such a massive health pool that the damage can be difficult to see.

Use augments to boost your strength and/or magic. Bloodlust, clout, vehemence, acuity, attunement, exhilaration, etc. Autonomy offers a big boost, if you feel like going solo.

Use strength or magic boosting consumables. Up to four will stack at a time. ex. - conquerors or demons periapt,

There's once I fought it with a team of sorcerers including my character and only managed to kill it after 4 rounds.

It is so much easier using assassin with the augments and periapts mentioned by nhankins7. Skills wise, you just need hundred kisses, gale harness (sometimes I think is optional), invisibility, five-fold arrows. Remember to drink Liquid Vim to keep your stamina. I bring blast arrows and maker's fingers just in case.

Oh, go solo so that you can use Autonomy. Make your life easier too.
