Important note - When calling GP or grace period, please include the keyword # grace, but remove the space so the # is up against grace, and it is all one string. Please do not use the keyword in this thread until it is grace period.
When you enter the Chamber of Lament, you will see an "accessing server" message, during which a copy of the online Ur dragon will be downloaded. Kill the 3 enemy pawns to summon the Ur dragon into the arena. The Ur dragon will come with hp (and weak spots status) representative of his global health, but at any time players may be greeted with Ur dragon of varying hp. Do not be alarmed if you see an Ur dragon with hp different from what others are reporting - he is not healing himself. Look at the mean for its general health rather than individual hp values.
TIPS AND TRICKS:
Having a hard time killing Ur Dragon during Grace Period? Check this thread about stacking periapts!!
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!!
• 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!!
Strategies in fighting the Ur Dragon using different Vocations:
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 on different servers, each with their own health points, thus the varying amounts of HP when you enter the Chamber of Lament. When one of these versions dies, all 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 discourage Ur from roosting?
Going to the West side of the chamber helps discourage 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 also be less likely 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!!
Hopefully I don't miss this one's grace period >:(

Another newbie who hasn't bothered to read the FAQ before asking his dumb ****ing questions! If you had taken a look roughly a half-dozen posts above you, you might have noticed the following:
• I am not doing any damage!!
I honestly have to wonder: Why are we seeing such a proliferation of new accounts asking these questions? Is it older players trying to hide their identities as to salvage their reputation (that what it is)? People too lazy to read and/or use the search function? Some other plausible possibility?
I'm not a newbie, but I'm not doing any damage either.
Then again, I'm not fighting him either:P
Kill one man, and you are a murderer. Kill thousands of men, and you are a conqueror. Kill millions of men and you are a hero. Kill them all, and you are a god.
