It’s probably not the most encouraging of signs when a trailer for an MMO’s newest raid mostly features player characters lying down following a wipe. But then again, what do you expect when your party is going toe-to-toe with a very sacred, very powerful dragon?
Welcome to Koldrak’s Lair, the latest 12-player raid coming to Blade & Soul. Level 55 characters can form teams and queue up for the raid at certain times during the day. It’s here they’ll fight the titular Koldrak, a flame dragon that has since succumbed to Dark Chi. The fight is time-limited to 50 minutes each, with the opportunity to down this boss five times each day.
It won’t be easy, as chunks of ice will be falling and Koldrak will try to sweep players off into lava with his tail. Successful fights will pay off in a variety of powerful treasure, depending on a player’s damage contribution (there are no dedicated tanks or healers in this game). There’s also a daily quest that rewards players with XP and the new dragon scale currency.
Koldrak’s Lair is coming with the Fire and Blood update on March 21st.
