Ur Dragon Gen 415

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 an 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.

You will then battle him for 8 minutes, after which he will fly away and you will see another "accessing server" message, during which the damages you did will be uploaded to the server for consolidation into the global health. If you don't see the "accessing server" message at this time, the damage did not upload, and you have likely exceeded the damage cap.

Over time, as players contribute their effort towards the common goal, the Ur dragon's global health will decline. Eventually, when the Ur dragon is killed by anyone, we go into grace period (GP). If you enter the Chamber of Lament during grace period, you will have a chance to land your own killing blow to gain good rewards - the 3 piece Abyssinal set, 1 mask, and 3-4 weapons. He will also dragonforge all weapons and armor equipped on the Arisen.

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 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. Substitute Tagilus's Miracle and/or Salomet's Secret to buff your entire party.

2. Use Bloodlust*, and fight at night.

3. Use Autonomy*, and fight solo. This is not always necessary, but may be recommended for lower level players.

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

5. Bring enough health and stamina curatives to survive while dealing max DPS.

6. Ur Dragon is weak to holy damage. Exploit this weakness.

7. If you are a bow wielding vocation, bring a Maker’s Finger and Blast Arrows. 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.

8. During GP, Ur will have very little health (usually less than 0.05), and all active hearts will be glowing bright red. You will need to destroy all active hearts during a single round to get a kill. GP generally lasts around 45 minutes, but can vary somewhat.

*Note* - Autonomy and Bloodlust have been severely nerfed in Dark Arisen. Autonomy may not be recommended for DA players, but Bloodlust is still a viable augment.

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

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

Conserving Consumables

• Save your game after entering the Chamber of Lament, then proceed to fight the Ur Dragon. When the 8-minute round is over, wait for the "accessing server" message, so the damage you dealt to Ur will be uploaded to the server. When it is done, use Godsbane and reload your last save. This will allow you to fight Ur without using any consumables (MF is an exception).

NOTE:

• Contribution rewards are dependent on your save file after you fight the Ur Dragon. If you did not save after fighting him, your contribution rewards (in case you miss killing him during Grace Period) will be forfeit. If you go a round with Ur, Godsbane, and then save, the damage you dealt should count towards contribution rewards.

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

Strategies in fighting the Ur Dragon using different Vocations:

Assassin/Strider/Ranger should attack with 100/1000 Kisses and 5/10 Fold with Blast Arrows. Sorcerer/Mage should use Holy Focused Bolt. MK mostly employs Great Cannon. Fighter/Warrior are not recommended due to lack of ranged attacks.

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 sync 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'm 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 of Ur when you attack him. Purple Blood = damage, Brown Blood = no damage. Hit the glowing spots (hearts) in order to draw purple blood, and do damage. If you can't destroy his hearts during GP, then you aren't doing enough damage.

How to discourage Ur from roosting:

Going to the West side of the chamber will help discourage Ur from roosting above the tower; while going onto the ledges on the East side of the chamber will often encourage roosting. Ur should 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. The game will auto-save after using a MF.

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!

Rather new to ur dragon hunting. Does it heal from maker's finger damage after a round? I used it twice and both the same result. The result being a ur dragon that has the heart I hit restored. Btw 10.3 somthing-ish.

Think of Ur as having two measures of health - global health and local health. What you see when you fight Ur is a local version of his health, and it is just a small portion of his total global health. So when you summon Ur, you are seeing a localized representation of Ur's global health. If it displayed his global health while you were fighting him, you would never see the health bar move at all.

While Maker's Finger makes a nice dent in Ur's local health, it barely scratches his global health. If a MF actually destroyed a heart on Ur's global health, he would be dying every few minutes, as it would only take 30 something Maker's Fingers to kill him.


Edit - I guess I'll try to add some info on local vs global health into the introduction sometime soon, as it can be a source of confusion, and we get questions about it from time to time.

It's questionable if the damage done by a MF is even counted at all towards global health. It would have to be counted separately from other damage or else you would exceed the damage cap each time you use a MF.

Another possibility is that MF does a set amount of damage to global health, but nowhere near what you see when you are fighting the local version.

There was also a theory that each time you use a MF on a low health Ur it creates another instance of the dragon.. O_o

Makes a little sense. Ugh, I wish I didn't sleep through 414's grace period...dammit. I got four weapons as recompense but the principle of the matter still stands. Well maybe Tuesday or Wednesday neh? Btw how well will 1145 secondary strength (without applying autonomy) work with blast arrows, holy enchant, etc. during grace period?
