[edit] Notes and Tips

  • The only way to S rank the quest is to fight the Ancient Dragon.
  • The gate that is one-way only during Lost Children can be opened from both sides.
  • A large number of lizards are along the path in B2 from elevator C-4 to the direspider.
  • Although this quest can be completed by have a party member tanking, a far easier way is to stagger all 3 dragons and eliminate the 2 Fire Dragons quickly. One player on each Fire Dragon and two on Ancient Dragon will allow you to accomplish this with relative ease.
  • To avoid Meteor Rain spams, attack the rear legs of Ancient (as this will prompt it to use Tail Strike.) Be warned - If you have ranged members in your party (Bow or Mage) make sure they do not draw Ancient's attention, or this strategy will not work.
  • Carry reviving items if you have space - It is very hard to recover when a party member is down and Raise is risky if there is more than one dragon left alive.
  • Carry Elixirs - They not only can ensure you and your party stay alive; they more importantly can keep Captain Robert alive if he takes too much damage.
  • Sovereign Roar cancels ALL positive Buffs, including the effect of Lifestones.
  • Due to the crowded nature of the 3 Dragon Boss Fight, the +Debuff spells are effective if you find yourself not being able to stagger them quickly. (+Fatigue and +Slow are very useful if your party is not able to kill the Fire Dragons within the first stagger.)
  • DO NOT attack Ancient's Tail until it is almost dead, or you will have an often impossible fight on your hands. (Captain Robert has a habit of doing this, so do your best to finish Ancient off as quickly as possible.)
