  • Hard mode Feargus behaves in pretty much the same way as normal Feargus, with only a few differences:

    • Feargus can always have all 3 of his shades out.
    • Feargus by default has all of the projectile attacks of the other 3 dragons.


Feargus is surrounded by several Demented Eggs that will hatch into Obsidian Soul Shards when approached. Killing these is recommended, as they will take shots at players and heal the boss rapidly.

Feargus himself will only begin combat if approached.


Taunt: “Prepare to meet your doom. There is no mercy here.”
Feargus awakens and immediately turns invisible while firing spreads of various shots in all directions. The “elemental” shots are not aimed, but his own “dark” shots are fired at the nearest player. He immediately summons his 3 Shades and begins slowly following the nearest player while spraying shots all around him. While he will chase players, he will eventually return to the middle of they go far away enough from the center of the room. He will also fire wide-area bombs at the nearest player.

If any of his Shades are defeated, after a bit he will turn invisible and intangible while firing shots for several seconds before respawning all dead Shades.

Every time he loses 1/4 of his HP, he will quickly return to the center of the room and fire rings of various shots while invisible and intangible.


Taunt: “Until we meet again…sub-creature..”
At about 1/8 HP, Feargus will return to the middle of the room and despawn, leaving a Chest behind. Any Shades that are still alive will self-terminate shortly.

Tips and Strategies

  • When entering this room with a group, kill all the Demented Eggs before activating the boss. This makes the boss fight much easier and makes it safe when you need to back up and regenerate health.

  • It is recommended to use a long range class, else you will have to dodge armor broken shots as melee in order to survive Feargus’s shotgun which is really hard to dodge. An archer or huntress with a doom bow is very useful in this situation

  • Everyone should fight this boss first, as it allow you to access the Ivory Wyvern’s lair after Pyrr, Limoz and Nikao have been defeated. Contrary to popular belief, there is no specific order in which you need to kill the aforementioned bosses as the only requirement is to kill Feargus first.

  • As this boss is immune to Stun, Stasis, Dazed and Paralyze, abilities will not do much in this fight.

  • If you decide to use a melee class for this fight, be wary of his spastic movements at times. After a few seconds of him chasing the players, he quickly goes back to the center of the room and goes invisible, and if anyone sits on the full shotgun, they are dead.

  • This boss is arguably the easiest to long-ranged characters, as Feargus doesn’t always charge and tends to stay in the center most of the time. That in mind, while long ranged characters will laugh this dragon off, short range will have a slightly harder time.

  • When Feargus goes invisible, stay as far as possible from where he was last seen, the center of the room and the space between it. When he goes invisible, he usually bee lines to the center of the room. If a character is not careful, they will take almost a full shotgun.


  • Prior to Release X.31.3.0, the first dragon to be faced in the Lair of Draconis was based on the color first typed into the chat (with Fearugs corresponding to ‘black’), enabling “Hard Mode” and allowing players to fight the Ivory Wyvern. After said update, Feargus was set to be chosen first automatically, effectively removing the dungeon’s “Normal Mode”.
