|Portal||End (locked by boss)
|Bosses||Plane of Fire boss: Dozekar
After going up and down the holes in the previous area you finally get to your destination of the boss
fight. All you will find in this area is Dozekar the Dragon who is introduced via a cutscene. Dozekar
has the Shard of Fire, and once you have it you can return to Mithaniel Marr
as proof that you
are worthy to get his Shard of Valor. Before you leave, make sure to run around and collect the many
little piles of gold all throughout the Lair of the Dragon.
Dozekar is primarily a melee attacker with very long reach. For melee attacks Dozekar can bite and hit
you with his claws, wings and tail. All are very powerful with a chance to stun. For special attacks,
Dozekar breathes fire, casts fire storm, and uses a non-damaging wing buffet to push you quickly away.
And it's no surprise that Dozekar is immune to fire. You should have a high fire resistance by this
It is possible to fight Dozekar using running away and using ranged attacks, or by blocking in melee
and timing attacks. Ranged attacks are generally more effective because Dozekar only has fire storm
at ranged. You can tell he is casting fire storm because he puts his head into the air. You can avoid
the rain of fire by looking for the circle of orange that appears on the floor and then avoiding
that area. When fighting in melee, stay to his front half to avoid his tail. Wait until he inhales
to get a couple of hits in and then block again. If you are lucky, his breath will miss you and you
can stop blocking for a couple more hits. If not, blocking stops most of the damage and a potion
should keep you stable. If he casts fire storm you may be able to get in a few hits, if running up
to him won't put you in the area of effect.
Whatever your character type, the best strategy is to follow the hint given to you on the loading
screen. Find the portal using your mini map and try and keep the portal between you and the dragon.
Use the portal as a shield as you wait for Dozekar to breathe fire, and then rush in to attack. If
Dozekar breathes to the side, he actually hits a much larger area in front of him than you would
think. Try to get him to breathe straight for a smaller area of effect. You can also use spells that
aren't blocked by the portal to whittle his health away, and you can use the time he spends confused
by the obstacle to let potions do their thing.
