Ashes of Creation have released their Alpha one Raid boss sneak peek and it’s safe to say these look epic! The designs of the dragons are awesome and they have their own biomes which mean they do different abilities accordingly. For example, the lava dragon will shoot fireballs at you and the frost dragon will freeze you into icicles!
The gameplay they’ve posted just looks so immense and we cannot wait to get involved with the game! In the video, they talk about needing 40-60 players in order to take down the boss. And if you played WoW in the past then you know how epic these type of fights are and the length each one can last for. There will be prep time needed in order to scout the boss and plan your attack!
In the first dragon, we can see the detail of the boss and how well done the visuals are for a pre Alpha game so I know I cannot wait for this game to be released! Alpha One is scheduled to be released in May/June so hopefully, we get to see a lot more gameplay and action!
The first had loads of poison pools that it spat out which looked to deal a lot of damage and a seismic jump which caused a shock wave that spread in a circle around the boss dealing more damage the further from the boss you were! A lot of DPS was needed to take down the huge dragon and a lot of healing and tanks to soak up the poison pools so the mages could unless their DPS without fear of standing in a poison pit!
So as an overview we are very excited with the first glance at the Alpha One bosses and we cannot wait to fight one ourselves! Check out the video for yourselves below and let us know in the comments what your thoughts are of the Boss fight!
