I found another really nice video by Fylina (Fylina probably is making the best most informative Aion videos right now!), this one showing a brief walk-thru of the Draupnir instance boss, General Bakarma.
Keep in mind that General Bakarma is a level 50 instance boss and Fylina and company are only level 45, which is the maximum level currently in Chinese Aion. Consequently, they chugged a lot of potions and had a couple of deaths.
The boss seems to be one of the more complex bosses I have yet to see in Aion. The fight includes positioning, AoE damage, stuns, adds and debuffs in various phases. One thing that I was wondering after watching the video is about the positioning of the boss. Running clear to the other side of the area to get away from the spawned adds seems like it may be an exploit, as does positioning him higher up on the wall in order to outdistance the AoE. I may be completely wrong about this, however. If it is an exploit the fight would be ratcheted up quite a few notches if and when they fix it.
Either way, it looks like a fun boss and it looks like NCSoft is serious about getting content in for the PvE’ers as well. Now without further adieu, Brigade General Bakarma, downed by Fylina and Company!
