    Priscillas Tail

    Post by eneq on Mon Feb 13, 2012 5:05 am

    Not sure how much discussions there have been about getting it off after the patch, I tried to get in a number of playthrus and only managed it once before.

    So on my new toon I decided I wanted it because he is trying to get every item in the game basically. So totally afraid if killing her prematurely I went in and tried a lot of things but quit/reloaded any time I felt it didnt work.

    So I tried;

    1. Toxic mist didnt work
    2. Massive hit to the tail before combat, didnt work
    3. Great fireball to the face, didnt work
    4. Repetetive hits with lesser weapon, didnt work
    5. Waiting, didnt work
    6. Testing to cleat my bleed, didnt work
    etc...

    So I finally was looking for something else and then it occured to me that the first time I killed her it was with the Iaito, which causes bleed damage. So I loaded up with a low damage bleed weapon (barbed straight sword, unupgraded) and went in swinging....

    True enough, 4 hits or so and she is visible.... Not sure if its due to all the things I tried before, or random luck or not but it kinda makes sense that bleeding her would have some special effect.

    So any comments or other experiences that speaks against this? I wasnt planning on killing her on next rin through so I can have the world for invasion pvp etc.

    Just keep going at her tail with slashing weapons that hit vertically. Use fire to make her appear, and circle her without lock-on.

    Soz maybe I was a bit unclear in my post, I already got the dagger since I got her to become visible, the question is regarding the method I used.

    I.E. Does affecting her with bleed make her visible after the latest patch? The reason I ask is that there is no consistent way on the Wikis about how to make her visible.

    PS: I tried fire in a number of combinations and it wouldnt trigger her to become visible, and on the wikis there are numerous refernces that fire does not make her visible.

    I used lightning to make her become visible. I had a lightning rapier that I would use through a shield, then once visible I'd switch to a claymore and go nuts on the very tip of the tail. I got the dagger when she had a sliver of health left.

    Ah yes, after my post I read some more online and it seems lightning also is very effective, which also makes sense since she is a half dragon and thus susceptible to lightning.

    Ill try to remember to test these methods in another playthru to see if they are 100% reproducible

    The key is going to be to get her visible, but not take too much damage off of her. This is why I chose a rapier and didn't upgrade it past the base lightning. This way I have the max amount of health to try to get the tail.

    I hit her dead on with a great fireball and she became visible, the only hit I gave here while she was invisible.

    Ah, yeah enough damage to the end does it. Its just a matter of getting that before she goes invisible or if you are lucky/good while she is invisible.

    I read someone doing firestorms and getting it of by pure luck (or rather the chance is pretty good) but I am sure there is supposed to be a trick to making her visible happy

    I think she become visible after 3 hits with any weapon now? Pretty sure all I used was a Winged Spear to hit her 3 times while blocking in Ng++++ to get her visible to chop off her tail.

    Its def. not that simple happy

    Are you sure it was a non upgrade Winged Spear? No lightning no nothing? If that's true then it just seems random luck and the best way to get her visible is to go in hit her a few times and then quit/reload and retry until she becomes visible.

    Yea my Winged Spear is +15 Normal, and it worked both times she went invisible during the fight.

    But I'm not 100% sure I was using it, might have been a +5 Lightning Spear honestly its been a week or two since I killed her.

    You all know the trick about walking out on to the bridge, right? That's worked well for me. When I see her footprints approaching, I lob one fireball or fire orb. It can't miss because of the narrow area. Then she's visible, and it's easy to stab at the tail. I like it better than just trying to hit her because it's too easy to accidentally do too much damage to her before you get the dagger to drop.

    First time I fought her fire orb turned her visible.....but recently tried, and no matter what I did, I couldn't get her to appear.... I even got her to bleed with my bandit knife. So Idk. I'm stumped.

    So its not bleed either, so the last to test is Lightning (atleast sofar). If that doesnt work then I assume its just a quit/reload strategy that would work okish.

    Hmm. . . I don't know what to suggest, then. It's just a shame that she doesn't have a health bar when she's invisible. The fight's fun that way, but too risky if you're going for the tail.
