Solo the dragons with Zero...help needed!

I know it has been done, but does anyone here have a good build-out and gear list for soloing the dragons with an OP10 Zero? This is one raid boss that I’ve never killed before and die every time I try :*(

I have a Legendary Sniper mod, no sandhawks… but I do have a Bee shield… And plenty of Bone/Skin of the ancient relics. Willing to farm any gear needed to get this done…

Thanks for any help in advance!

I won’t be able to help you, but I know a guy who can. Let’s just throw the @nat_zero_six signal up in the air and see if he can help you.

This is what helped me back when I was playing B2, at one point in the video you can see the loadout

So I need the magic missile grenade mod and a fire and shock bone of the ancients relics… I’m hoping this build-out will work at OP10. Thanks for the replies!

Be aware that if you put any status effect (slag, corrosive, shock, or fire) on a dragon while it’s in flight it will be unslagable when it lands (the same is true of LLMs, in case you aren’t already aware). That’s pretty much the extent of my helpful knowledge on this fight.

But in that video, he’s using a Grog Nozzle to bring them down and hitting them with Magic Missiles… I’m guessing the relics, DPS of the Lyuda’s, and his mod/com overrides the no slag effect?

I will defer to everyone else’s experience here, as I have none of my own. I know it works that way with the LLMs, and I have read in several places that you should bring the dragons to the killing floor with a NE weapon for that reason. I’m sure other folks (I would ask Nat any questions on raiding because hes got crazy raid skills) know better or for certain, I’m only repeating what I’ve heard elsewhere on the forum. I probably should have led with that. Sorry.

I’ve read that about the dragons as well. But that video shows that slagging them doesn’t make a difference in the beginning. I’ll be trying it out tonight and see if any of what is in the video holds up at OP10.

I may bring a couple pitchfork’s with me, too. I have them in all elements at OP10 thanks to Haderax and Uranusbot.

A quick youtube search turns up

He gives his build and loadout in the comments below…

That is a video I have not seen yet… Thanks for linking it. This gives me hope that I can take down the dragons with my OP10 Zero… I think I have a slag transfusion in my bank… I have a stockpile relic for increased ammo, I believe… I’ll have to check when I get home. I have all the sniper rifles I need and for my first time run at the dragons, I’ll be leaving my BAR on…lol

if you still have difficulty, you can do the pre-stacking method, something like this from @Rainbubble

This is how you stack

Why do they drop some gear then pick it up?

If you open your inventory your ca stacks will go away.

That’s what I figured. I’m having trouble stacking the mimicks… Lol… I’ll get it figured out… Never did this before…

anytime. You can do it, I am bad at anything involving getting critical hit, yet I manage to kill them, I use CA stacks and a wear a Bee. Once you kill Healianth and Brood or Boost it would become easier.

I was able to take down brood and was working on healianth when I ran out of basilisks to revive me in FFYL, then died… That was without CA stacks. I’m still working on getting the CA stacks over 200. I managed to get it to just over 100, but didn’t feel that would be enough. I need the Chaotic Neutral Rogue Com to go along with my stockpile relic in order to get it higher… Looks like I’ll need to run through TTAoDK and find one.

Even starting the fight with just 50 stacks makes a bigger difference than you might think, & if you can maintain the sweet spot for the Lyuda bullet split they drop pretty quick even without a Rogue COM.

Thanks for the reply! I need to make sure I learn the route back to the arena so I can limit the depletion of the CA stack. It’s pretty straight forward, but I want to be fully prepared. What is the sweet spot for the split? Does it matter which Lyuda as far as elemental?

As long as you’re not spec’d into Vel0city it should be pretty easy to see, you’ll want to try to keep yourself at a distance where the 2 extra projectiles that split out of the original Lyuda shot also hit the critical. You can see where the bullet splits just by shooting so try to find the distance where it splits right at the head & maintain it as best you can. Ideally you’d want a fire Lyuda for all of them except Incinerator, you’ll need non-elemental or shock Lyuda for him.
