Unlike Eddie Murphy’s portrayal of Mushu, the miniature dragon guardian in Mulan, the dragons in DDO are magical, mystical, and rather large.
I encountered four in total last week. Two greens,
and a white.
All in all, my experiences have been positive. They were tough adversaries, and a challenge, but not so that I had no chance (if I’d been alone, that would likely be a different story).
This pleases me, as my previous encounters with dragons were not in any way encouraging.
The Dragon that has instilled the fear of all his kind into my poor PC’s heart is Velah, the red dragon on the Plane of Night, which is the boss for the follow-up raid.
My group didn’t last more than a few minutes inside that area, and we were completely buffed for the encounters (to clarify, I was in the part of the group that handled the ice reavers).
It was a horrendous slaughter, and I haven’t done it since. Mostly because I haven’t been free when the raid party was forming, but also because of the intimidation factor. That raid has made me respect and fear dragons all over again!
