We’re going simple today, as game ran a little long last night. What follows is the edited versions based on the feedback I received post-fight. It was intended to be the final fight of the paragon tier and it takes place inside a giant treasure vault. The dragon first appears as a shadow, then forms a body from the coins and trinkets in the room. It telekinetically controls the treasure.
I should give you more fluff and description, but, like I said, I’m tired and if you can’t find inspiration in a gold dragon made from real gold coins…
WARNING: This fight is a beating.
- I started with three Platinum Guards. It was suggested that he could start with more or less as a way to tune the fight.
- I used Ocean of Coin on the first turn to grab the warlock and flurry him. I then action pointed into Goldstorm on most of the rest of the party. Goldstorm is a lot of damage (average 32 or 47!) and you can pretty much choose anyone to jam back inside.
- The real dirty trick is to punt people back into Goldstorm, then summon minions to clog the charge lanes.
- Ocean of Coin also makes marking/”tanking” very, very hard. Kalek can just chuck defenders away from him.
- If you’re wondering why he doesn’t have the traditional “solo stun protection” it’s because causing him to drop that Goldstorm is almost a requirement.
- I waited until turn two to pick someone for Drowning in Money and chose wrong. I went after the main healer, thinking that a solid damage burst would put them on tilt. Instead, I should have gone after a damage dealer because the fight is on a clock.
- You can lower the damage from Explosion to 15 and have it automatically hit if you want to save time.
- Try to clip the soft targets with Smash, as that means that you don’t have to use Ocean of Coin to keep them in the AoE.
