Woohoo! Alpha Dragon dead. Well, not the Island alpha dragon, but the Ragnarok alpha dragon.
From past experiences, I remembered that the Dragon/Manticore fight on Ragnarok was easier. I setup a local copy of the Ragnarok server and did the fight a couple times to verify that it was possible.
The fight itself pretty much involved me running around on my daedon, dodging the manticore tranq bolts. I did stop occasionally to shoot the Dragon/Manticore with my shotgun or force feed the daedon kibble so it could keep healing the therizins. The therizins had about 30 veggie cakes so they could heal themselves also.
The Dragon went down pretty fast. The Manticore took about 10 to 15 minutes because it wouldn’t land. The Manticore flew around so long that my therizin’s killed most the rock elementals that spawned during the fight. The therizin’s only do like 40 to 60 damage vs the elementals and they had 25k+ health, so it took awhile.
My next goal is to breed up 10 to 20 more therizin’s and start working on the tek cave. According to the wiki you can bring up to 50 dinos. That is going to take a lot of work to get that many dinos through the tek cave without them falling into the lava.
