Behavior

The dragon is made up of a Body Segment Tail, multiple Body Segments, and the Eye of the Dragon. The tail is always invulnerable. The eye is initially invulnerable, but the body segments are always vulnerable.

Phase 1

The Rock Dragon’s eye and tail are invulnerable. The Dragon flies around very quickly, spraying rapid shotguns of flame bursts. It also deals high damage on contact. Combined with it’s attacks, it can deal incredible damage. It spawns Rock Dragon Bats at a constant rate. When a Body Segment is destroyed, it will separate from the Dragon, flash, and explode into a ring of bullets.

Once all body segments are destroyed, the tail will self-terminate and the second phase will begin.

Phase 2

The Eye is vulnerable during this phase. It slowly floats around the arena, firing radial Dragon Eye Blasts around it. It also fires fast Dragon Eye Lasers aimed at the nearest player. If not killed fast enough, the Dragon will regenerate it’s body and revert to Phase 1.

Tips and Strategies

If you’re an archer or huntress, try to paralyze the dragon and then you can destroy the body with ease (the eye can only shoot straight ahead). Still, you should keep a good distance because the body segments explode for 150 damage per shot, and sitting on it will result in about 2100 damage, instantly killing even maxed melee classes. One more tip is if you are a warrior use Juggernaut and for the time your armor has been doubled you will take only about 45 damage from the Rock Dragon.

Keep in mind that the eye can only fire forwards. Sidestepping the Dragon when it approaches you will spare you from the brunt of the attack. Do not underestimate the Eye of the Dragon’s slow, floaty movement in phase 2: sitting on it while it fires its radial attack will result in enormous damage that is instant death for all but the tankiest of melees.

If the Eye is not killed fast enough and the dragon respawns all its body parts, they will all spawn in the same spot, meaning if you paralyze them, they can be all taken out at once, possibly making the Eye vulnerable again within seconds.

Make no mistake, this is an incredibly dangerous quest, even for maxed melees. If you take a full shotgun to the face by this dragon, high chances are that you’re going to die. So if you are level 15, I suggest skipping out on this quest, as they will always spawn once per realm, and wait till you’re level 20 to tackle this behemoth.
