After this next restart, you will be able to earn an elytra for killing the dragon in the end. However, it will not be an easy fight. The dragon is protected by 10 crystals. These crystals can only be destroyed by defeating the boss mob each crystal transforms into.
To start this epic battle, place 4 crystals around the end portal just as you would for a vanilla fight. All crystals will be invulnerable once spawned.
The player that places the fourth end crystal to spawn the dragon (the fight “owner”) will receive the final drops when the dragon is defeated, even if they’re off-line. If your inventory is full when the dragon dies and you own the drops, the plugin will record your victory and you can claim them later by running /dragon prize. You can check the current stage and owner of the dragon fight by running /dragon info.
Fights that are abandoned by a player unable to defeat the bosses will have ownership transferred by admins to a player willing to complete the fight. If you feel you cannot defeat the dragon solo, please ask for help or ask someone to take over before logging out. Admins can change ownership of the dragon fight for you.
Be careful not to spawn the dragon too close to the restart. If there are four end crystals on the end portal frame when the server restarts, they will all be removed and you will need to /modreq for replacements.
Final drops will be in 1 of 10 different shulker prize boxes. Prizes will include the dragon head, elytra, a skull and other goodies. Want to be the Ultimate Dragon Slayer? Trade your dragon heads in for a dragon egg with the number of dragon fights completed as the egg name. Hang the egg in an item frame to show your DragonSlayer level! (DragonSlayer levels will start at 5 dragons killed, for higher levels you will need to trade in your lower level egg plus additional dragon heads)
A few more words from the padmins:
The DragonFight plugin was developed by totemo, and the bosses were designed by cujobear with input from all the padmins.
We reserve the right to adjust the difficulty of the fight, and to make any changes as are necessary to correct any problems discovered. We will factor your feedback into this evaluation.
We also ask that you be considerate of other players and allow everyone an opportunity to obtain a set of elytras before you start trying to speed run the dragon fight.
We strongly suggest players go into this battle:
- Well prepared with good armor, lots of food, arrows, etc
- With at LEAST 30 mins to fight (first time will most likely take longer)
- Trying the battle with a group
- Sleep in a bed near the end portal before entering the end to fight
- Keeping spare armor, extra food, and weapons somewhere safe nearby
