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. Don’t be alarmed as he is not healing himself. A generally accepted theory (as proposed by some GameFAQs members) is there are at least 4 different Ur Dragons on 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 Ur’s 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, Ur’s 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). It’s a time when you can deliver a killing blow to the Ur Dragon and earn good rewards.

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 one round, in order to kill it. Once all of its remaining weak points are destroyed, you have technically delivered a killing blow. Recently Grace Period has been about 2 hours long, and there hasn't been a “soft” GP at the end.

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.

TIPS AND TRICKS:

Having a hard time killing Ur Dragon during Grace Period? Check this thread about stacking periapts!!

http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/626515-dragons-dogma/64783146

=====================================================================================================

The infinite supply trick:

• Just before you enter the Chamber of Lament, save your game. Then proceed to fight the Ur Dragon for 8 minutes. When the 8-minute round is over, wait for the "accessing server" message so the damage that you dealt to the Ur Dragon will be uploaded to the server. When it is done, use Godsbane to reload your last save. And there you go!! Infinite supplies!!

NOTE:

• Contribution rewards are dependent on your saved file after you fight the Ur-Dragon. So since you did not save after fighting him, your contribution rewards (in case you missed killing him during Grace Period) will be forfeited. If you don't care about getting petty rewards and you are sure to catch him during GP, then by all means, use this trick and fight him with infinite number of supplies!!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

Ur Dragon is healing??

Capcom confirmed that HE DOES NOT HEAL. There is a generally accepted theory that there are at least 4 versions of the Ur Dragon with their own health points, thus the varying amounts of HP when you enter the Chamber of Lament. When one of these versions die, all 4 servers will synch and we will have Grace Period. There are instances when there is a big difference between the health points of different versions, so as to prevent the players from concentrating on the Ur with the lowest HP, the server will redistribute Ur's health.

I am not doing any damage!!

You are doing damage. It's just that Online Ur has a tremendous amount of HP and it takes a lot of players around the world to bring his HP down to zero, thus activating Grace Period. Also be sure to observe the blood that is coming out from Ur when you attack him. Purple Blood = damage, Grey Blood = no damage. Try to hit the glowing spots so you will draw purple blood.

How to prevent Ur from roosting?

Going to the West side of the chamber helps prevent the Ur-Dragon from roosting above the tower; while going onto the ledges on the East side of the chamber will often encourage roosting. Ur should be unable to roost once all 4 wing hearts are destroyed.

How to properly use the Maker's Finger:

The Maker's Finger is a special arrow that will instantly kill almost every enemy in the game. As for Ur, while it will not kill him instantly, it will deal massive damage to his HP. But you can only damage him if you hit a glowing spot or an intact heart. If you hit him on a dead heart, this will not do any damage.

You can only hold 1 Maker's Finger at a time. After you use it, Fournival will automatically restock another Maker's Finger. Don't forge it! A forgery will never work!!

Health Notation

The numbers you see posted in this thread are health updates. To give an update, just count the number of purple dots remaining on Ur's health, and add a decimal approximation of the current health bar. So two dots and half a bar would be a 2.5. Ur starts at ten dots and a full bar, which equates to 10.99 or 11.0. Important - always report what the health is at the beginning of a round, not what the health is at the end of a round.

General advice for getting a kill during GP

1. Use Bloodlust, and fight at night.

2. Use Autonomy and fight solo. This is not always necessary, but highly recommended for lower level players.

3. Use all other strength/magic boosting augments at your disposal – Clout, Vehemence, Acuity, Attunement, etc.

4. Use stacked periapts. Bring at minimum 32 Conqueror’s and/or 32 Demon’s Periapts – Conqueror’s for strength, Demon’s for magic. Use 4 (of each) at a time, and reapply when they wear off.

5. If you are a bow wielding vocation, bring a Maker’s Finger. If you can get Ur down to only one heart, you can MF the last heart to kill him. Don’t miss, you only get one shot.

Something to take note of... it's highly possible that GP has changed from 2 hrs to 1 hr.

Gen 214 had a short GP, many ppl missed it. Only 1 person reported a kill on Gen 215 after 1 hr (he reported it 1 hr 15 min, given that ppl don't post immediately, the GP could have been 1 hr). And with Gen 216, it was clearly 1 hr.

If this is truly the case, I feel a lot better about missing Grace. It doesn't change the fact that it was a rotten $#&%&@%* day and a doubly rotten $#&%&@%* night for me, but a one-hour Grace means I missed it by an hour-plus and not by a few minutes.... and that means there wasn't much I could do (short of having cancelled my plans for the night and losing the money invested into said plans) to catch it.

I'll edit that part of the intro for the next thread, and leave it in more general terms. I think the grace for 215 was about 2 hours - I checked about an hour and 50 minutes after the initial call for grace, and the new gen wasn't up yet. I really hope the format hasn't changed though, 2 hour grace periods made Ur hunting a lot less stressful.
