Anyone figure out how to get past his Moon Blast? Almost 50k damage... BOOM!
I've died about 20 times trying to figure out how to kill this DRAGON! ;)

    I did that fight with my templar. Died twice and then I put vampire mist form on my bar and between that and breath of life, I survived the Moon Blast. It was a very challenging fight! Kudos to ZOS for that.

    @Casdha What other option?

    Just did that quest an hour ago with my templar. There's a moment when he lands up on a rock or pillar, and does his devastating moon blast attack. The only way I survived it was to put up Sun Shield (Radiant Ward morph) immediately, and then start spamming my heal over and over. You have to spam it fast, so hope you have a lot of magicka or stamina, whichever your heal uses. In other words, you need both a magical shield of some sort AND to spam your healing skills.

    I wasn't a vampire, so I couldn't use Vampire Mist. I tried to see if getting as far from the dragon as possible would work, but no, he'll kill you just the same, so it's not avoidable.

    @ValandarTheRed

    He's not unbeatable without the right skills. It's just that you might die a lot in the process of killing him. When you die and rez back, his health is down as far as you got it. So hit him as hard as you can before the next Moon Blast and when you die his health will be a little further down. Rinse and repeat until he is dead. Also, when the prompt comes up for the horn, use it. It helps a lot.

    That's ... odd. Every other fight everywhere, when you die, the baddies' health goes back to full.

    I had to find a video to figure that one out as I couldn't hear Abnurs advice.

    EDIT:

    I found that if you stand in the circle - you can actually hear Abnur... otherwise you can't.

    I play late at night so I have the sound off so as not to wake anyone. I had no idea there was a shield. I completed that quest already but I will have to keep this in mind for my other characters. Thanks for letting us know! :smile:

    Also, don't use your soul gems. If you die, select "resurrect at wayshrine." It'll just bring you back to the door you entered to fight the dragon. :)

    This is what I meant:
    The pic looks like the point where you have a choice to taunt the dragon or agree to speak with Tharn, I chose speak with Tharn. I don't know what the other option did, I thought they were saying what happened with the other option.

    I had my volume up but as Imza said unless you are standing in the middle you can't hear him telling you to get to the shield. You should be able to hear his instructions anywhere, in my opinion.

    I've had the problem of missing audio cues and such things for *ages* with ESO. It can be helpful to turn subtitles on for major battles, you'll then get the cue appear on your screen even if you can't hear it.

    As for this fight. It's just horrible. I created a necromancer and, following the story through, I turned up to this one with my character in it's mid teens, level wise. It took me three defeats and nearly twenty minutes to get the dragon's health bar to even show it was taking any damage. For almost all that time, the dragon was circling around out of range while damaging lightning strikes peppered me constantly. I get one hit with a wet tissue for each twenty of its hugely damaging hits. With those ridiculous mechanics coupled with a non-functional quickslot, I just gave up on it.

    I've never died to an enemy as many times as I've died in this battle. I tried blocking, I tried healing through it, I tried hiding behind things...then I gave up and used Google.

    Not only could I not hear Tharn, there were no subtitles. In fact, I've only heard and read his advice on the second or third time I was inside his shield. :/

    To add insult to injury, the only thing I got from that battle was one of those treasure things that dragons drops, worth 100g. There was more loot, I saw it when I clicked the body, but my game didn't register them.

    I have auto-loot turned on so it should have picked everything up automatically. No, my inventory wasn't full, and the dragon's body didn't have that aura that yet-to-be-looted bodies have, so I know there was no loot left behind.

    I only checked my inventory when I was back in Rimmen, but if I'd checked it while inside the temple, I doubt it would make any difference, since there was nothing left to loot.

    As a side note, I had a hard time firing my ultimate during the battle. The game didn't seem to respond to the command at times. I wonder if this is related to the problem I had stealing some quest items, after all, both the ultimate and the steal actions are bound to the R key (my keyboard is new, and the only use that computer has is to play the game).

    If you have a ranged attack, use it on Mulaanmir. In fact, this battle works well if you look at the paying field and see that there are three "rings". For Mulaanmir's initial appearance, stay in the outer ring and use ranged attacks. After he takes off, stay more or less in the contrasting middle ring where you have room to fight the second dragon and still avoid its attacks. For the third dragon, get in the center and fight up-close-and personal. When you drive that one off, Mulaanmir will unleash his Moon Blast -- and you'll be right in the center when Abnur's shield goes up. While Mulaanmir blasts away, you have time to regenerate health/mag/stam. As soon as the shield dissipates, run for the outer ring to resume distance attacks on Mulaanmir. Repeat this cycle until Mulaanmir is finally down. It will take several rounds to accomplish, but once you get the sequence down it's not so bad.

    Another fight that is completely unbalanced on PS4. I'm good up until the air atronarch spawns, he shreds me. I'm level 40 equipped with blue dungeon gear, I've breezed through most Elswyer content, but I cannot get passed this fight. The balancing in this expansion had been rubbish.

    Same I’ve just give up tonight after the air Atronach killed me about 8 times, I just can’t get past it. Anyone any tips on dealing with the air Atronach. Also anyone else feel as though roll dodge is glitched on this. Mine only seems to work every 4 or 5 tries meaning his lightening shots are taking my health and stamina right down making me unplayable. Not great when I’m a stamina necro as it is.

    @UnseenCat

    Thank-you very much for contributing your description of how to fight Mulaamnir!! I followed your advice and did not have to fight all that many rounds to kill that dragon.

    The problem which I encountered originally was that Khamira and Abnur Tharn, respectively, disappeared from the scene after my character entered the final arena. I remember seeing what appeared to be a portal open near the entrance (which was behind my character at that point). So I had no idea whether they left entirely, or were around somewhere.

    During the fighting, I could hear Abnur Tharn calling out that my character must "get in my shield" to survive the major "Moon Blast" of Mulaamnir. However, I never saw where the shield was located. After I found Khamira and Tharn were on a terrace of the northern building nearby, I tried standing at a location as close to them as I could get, but died nonetheless. That was when I decided to look for some advice and assistance online. .....

    Again, thank-you for your contribution!

    @Shadowshire You're welcome!

    I initially got confused in exactly the same the same way you did -- it seemed logical to run toward Abnur. Then I saw where he was putting the shield in the middle of the arena.

    The Elsweyr "climax" battles are sort of solo mini-dungeons. Mechanics are important unless your build is such that you can brute-force your way through -- but even so, they discourage that. Like dungeons, I've come to expect a wipe or two until I can figure out how the puzzle works.

    The Prologue quest for Dragonhold has a different, but somewhat related mechanic. I fully expect that the final fight and several along the way in the Dragonhold DLC will also be like this. Don't worry about clearing it the first time through -- watch what happens as you go and look for ways to work a strategic advantage, and watch for hints from NPCs.
