After beating down foes in the Sander and Hamel Fields, 12 players will be able to zone into the dungeon via a Gate of Time and take on the mech techno-dragon in the City in the Sky zone.

 

If you’re one of them, you’ll need to bring your A+ game, as the fight will only last for 12 minutes. Any longer, and you lose. Veteran MMO raiders will know this as the “enrage timer”, the artificial limit where the boss grows tired of dealing with you and just snuffs you from existence.

The fight looks to be pretty impressive, with Eltrion’s abilities requiring player to constantly move between different levels to avoid lasers, pillars of plasma and more.

 

If you don’t have 12 players ready when the gate opens, it’ll remain open for a further 15 minutes before the fight begins proper.

    Neat.

  • Mugiwara

    Hmm. I wonder if this is already on Elsword BR?

    Should you happen to being to fight Eltrion for the first time or you just so happen to get your butt handed to you, check out this Korean post which illustrates all of his attack patterns, along with a wiki page if you want the text. The pictures themselves are easy to read, minus the part where he will shoot missiles everywhere. No easy way out, just dodge them the way you would Avalanche’s ice missiles.

    I want to say that the design for the dragon is cool, but there’s so much going on in its design, I’m a little confused as to what it is I’m looking at.

  • Jadfish

    This is the kind of game where lag would REALLY piss me off. Just look at those attack patterns! Dodging that stuff is almost akin to a Ys game

    • Bobby Jennings

      Lag doesn’t affect this guy in the KR server i know that much.

  • Shuga Suenaga

    kinda looks like arceus lol

  • Ni ~Algidus~

    dat terminator music.
    the attacks looks like they came out from Omega/Weil (MMZ)
