Why can´t we have a duel with a dragonrider in the top of a huge circular area(like Ancient Dragon´s boss room) where we fight him one on one but sometimes he calls the help of a drake to spill fire(be fireballs or a flame wall). Then when he gets on 1/3 of his health he calls the drake and then mounts it, gaining full health and different resistances?

i did a cosplay build character of the Dragon Rider...and i actually received a message of a player that i kill him when i invaded him and he sent me this ''you are actually a better dragon rider than the boss itself'' hahaha

Easiest boss in the game... Except when it called for sniper backup in Drengliec castle.

overall amazing drawing on the Dragonrider!
SteelShroom's avatar
Nah, the easiest boss was the Last Giant.

Hahahahaa I know! It's like, "this is what you get for bringing friends along!"
Shame the longbow guy had little to no defense... ^w^;;
Superbz1212's avatar
I know right but probably for "fairness" of the game.
Maybe this guy would've put up a better fight if he used his twinblade...or had his mount. For dudes who were supposed to be the Drangliec Special Forces they go down rather easily. I guess it was low standards like that which let the war with giants last three generations.

Karniz, Will you going to make ds2 comic like the first one? O,O
karniz's avatar
If you've been keeping up with my comic, I made a post back in March will explain! XD;;
K-V-Saga's avatar

Very cool! :D is that watercolor?
karniz's avatar
Actually they're Dr. Martin Dyes!
They're similar to ink wash rather than watercolors, and they're not as forgiving either... XD;;

Damn this is nicely done.

Also, this guy is very easy, even as a heavy armor character. The basic Twin Dragon Greatshield absorbed 3-5 hits before the guard broke, and then the counter was very easily done.

The correct way to fight Dragonrider is with no levers pulled and no shield.

(I mean come on at least make the poor doofy fat armor guy feel good about himself)
karniz's avatar
You mean having a 3-man gang bang isn't the right way to do it?
JRinaldi's avatar
I swear I put a summon sign in front of Dragonrider like seven times.
And every time the guy just runs off to fight Old Grandpa Ornstein instead.

[if you're talking about the ones in the vault]
Get friends?
I'm a hexer and I waste the ranged one in like, three hits.

I haven't encountered the ones in the throne room [yet.]

after leaving the comment i gave it another shot strangely enough a fire dark knight halberd is more effective than a dark zweihander also fire storm has one helll of a stagger
