Dragons have always been a staple in every Phantasy Star game. There was Dragon and Sil Dragon from the original Phantasy Star Online. We also have De Ragan and its many variants from Phantasy Star Universe. Here's the latest variant of its kind and the REAL boss of the volcanic area, Vol Dragon.
Mouse over the image to reveal the weak points.
Unlike the previous bosses, this guy doesn't need reinforcements to kick your butt and is very strong. Their large size allows them to protect their weak points by making it unreachable to many, especially Hunters with their melee range. Not only that, this dragon tend to dig underground to coat itself with a thick layer of hardened magma. Doing it twice will allow the enemy to cover their weak points entirely and make them unbreakable. They might have a couple of tricks to cover their weaknesses, but it doesn't mean that they have no exploitable ones.

Here's a video of my team beating the giant lizard. Fighting this guy really reminded me of Monster Hunter and God Eater Burst, especially since this monster have more breakable parts than the previous bosses. Although we broke the tail twice, we couldn't break any of the horns so this run kinda sucks.
Here are more videos from my friends and companions. Both are Hunters but they use different weapons during the battle. Momoyo is equipped with a wired lance while Domenica prefers swords and partisans.
That's all for now. Next post would be about the Emergency Missions and the last available boss during the Closed Beta.
