Stage 1 attacks
Most often used attack.
Last hit inflicts knockdown.
Inflicts disarm (silence).
Use knockdown protection (gazing golem card, pain barrier, link-shared rune of protection), and tank damage.
High Block or high evasion status.
Jump to the side. Hitbox is a cone in front of drake.
Dispeller should always be active inside raid map.
Hitbox is frontal and small. Stay away from its face.
25 seconds cooldown (excluding drake’s charge-up time).
Attempts to use this skill whenever it detects tile-based skills.
Skill pulls players towards the drake.
Inflicts 20s of Curse (hexing) debuff on players.
Charge-up of the attack is very obvious (displayed on top of drake).
Have cleric use useless tile skills to bait this attack (cure, deprotected zone), then drop all useful tile based skills.
Use pull-protection (gazing golem card, pain barrier, link-shared rune of protection).
Jump to dodge this attack.
Skill destroys all tile based skills and ice walls. It cannot destroy quarrel shooter’s pavise, reworked druid grass, and cannot destroy elementalist hail.
Attack is activated at 60% HP and 30% HP.
Stun cannot be mitigated or removed.
Uses homing orb attack after stun.
Bombards players from the sky (magic attack).
Move to the three stone pillar area to avoid the homing orb damage. Stun still applies to you.
Oracle counterspell, life line attribute, forecast attribute sometimes prevent the stun. (intended?)
After the stun, move around to avoid bombardment. Murder baby drakes quickly to move to next boss stage.
Stage 2 attack
(uses all stage 1 attacks, and adds 1 more attack)
Moves a long distance.
Attack charge-up is very obvious (drake crouches). Move away from its path to avoid the attack.
Lure to wall and make it dash into the wall. Or drop pavise (QS skill), or ice wall (low level ice wall please) under drake to prevent dash.
Use knockback protection and tank the attack.
Stage 3 attacks
(uses all stage 1 & 2 attacks, and adds a few more attacks)
Mixed Magic & Physical attack.

Turn effect settings ON to see the puddle.
Move out of the puddle.
Deals magical damage and steals all tile based circles.
Players hit by this skill lose HP and SP every second for 10 seconds.
Attack charge-up is very obvious (drake extends wings, shouts, charges its fist, and the charge-up timer is displayed on the drake).
Jump to avoid damage.
Stay away from allied tile skills when they are reversed.
Put heal tiles far away. (no longer necessary after heal rework)
Reverses Kabbalist3 Tree of Sephiroth (after heal rework).
Tile destroyer flame blast
Destroys tile-based skills.
Big frontal range.
The blast pushes the drake backwards.
Move to the side to avoid this attack.
Does not destroy elementalist hail, and cannot destroy quarrel shooter’s pavise.
Oracle counterspell blocks this skill. Counterspell does not get destroyed.
Best counter to drake : pavise lockdown
Bring experienced qs3 falconer3. Works on other bosses too. Necromancer’s Dirty Pole functions similarly.
