what's with the power drain on dracur prime advanced solo @ tigloth the conqueror?!  i used the blue thingy and the second my power replenished, he drained it again.  i used manastone & overclocked manastone.  the second that my power replenished, he drained again.  hey... um... not everybody can power regen nonstop!  in most solo/group fights, my power replenishes would have been more than enough.  drop the power drain in a solo instance!  thank you.

I have to second this with never noticing the power drain. However, again, I am a beastlord with a healer merc, and I usually have a full bar of savagery so the fight takes no time at all. I will try on my pally and see what happens.

Using the inq merc is probably why you haven't noticed it.  Inq merc cures continually.  It's not Tigloth doing the power drain.  The adds that pop put arcane dots on you that power drain you.  Never noticed it when I was on a toon able to burn him down fast.  But yeah, on a healer with low to medium dps, you definitely notice it. 

My suggestion would be trying a different merc or duo it which would make it real easy.  I'll probably try the inq merc since he's so good at the cures.

I've killed this guy almost daily with different classes and haven't noticed the power drain.  I did not run it yesterday because well... the apprentice part is broken.  So if it's happenign since yesterday I'd not have seen it.

This... you just move from the sparks is all you have to do.

How do people finish Tigloth off in 3 seconds?  I'm a necro.  I've hit 91.  Got a lot of master level spells and using a sk merc.  Pet can't even seem to maintain aggro and the health of my merc and my pet are gone before Tigloth even gets down one bubble.  I just can't figure this one out.  Done all the withering lands quests so have most of the armor upgrades too.  I understand advanced solo but I can't even put a dent in this guy.

Some people have already said that all you have to do is move away from the things the dragon spawns. Took me like 5 seconds to figure that one out ...

Junst one more thing Tigress. If you encounter something you cannot do, pay attention to the fight and try something else. Coming to the forums to ask for a nerf so you can do it without having to think at all, is not the solution.

The fight is extremely easy anyway for any class. If you find that while you stay ot you die then what can you do ? Gasp, I know, very hard, move a little bit ?

He does do a power drain if you take too long to kill him, ie let the sparks spawn.  I found this out on my guard with an inquis merc.  My poor guard was undergeared at 90, so by killing him slowly he would spawn the sparks at like 30% and I couldn't beat him.  All I did was start using the 25% damage clicky and it was insanely easy after that.

I'd say your dps must be very low and you are killing him too slowly.  Not sure which class, but even my Templar didn't have issues with him, although at 90 without some SS gear I can see some classes have a tiny bit of difficulty.

You're missing the point of the fight. The orbs drain and put detriments on you only you are very close to them. Move away and it does not matter how slow you kill the dragon. Yes you can get more than one up , but again, simply void them and you have no issues.

No I wasn't missing the point.  I was just pointing out that even a very crappily geared 90 guardian could ignore the script by using the 25% damage item that drops in that zone.  I understand there is a script, but it was annoying to follow due to that huge almost constant knockback and it was just easier for me to straight burn him.

Sorry, I wasn't trying to get you worked up. The script is very easy anyway.I do it with my defiler which I think we can agree is not a massive dps beast. The kick back is a long casting spell so you see it and when it happens I park my defiler against a column or wall so i don't get Kbed much. Effectively I run around the dragon, avoiding the spawns and it's a very easy fight.

He makes a sounds when he spawns an orb so I can stay in one place and dps and only move when he actually spawns them. I don't even use a merc, because I just can't be bothered to look after him.

Actually.. I believe the power drain is caused by the name itself.

Its called Charged Laceration and is a trauma curable effect.

It says that it drains mana every 4 seconds, if it is cured before that it wont drain any.

The sparks on the other hand have an effect called Electrocute that does decent damage every 7 seconds.

Again this will not take effect until those 7 seconds has elapsed.

It is my understanding that he uses charged laceration first and then shortly after that the sparks will spawn.

This gives the illusion that the sparks cause the power drain but ACT says otherwise. It is the trauma detrimental ticking at this time.

No, not worked up at all. =)   I will readily admit I'm lazy and usually just try the brute force method several times before I start thinking about strats/scripts.  It's funny because I'm a regular raider and understand the incredible importance of scripts, but I think that in solo play you just get used to everything being so insanely easy that you don't want to be slowed down by a script.  I actually hugely appreciate the fact that SOE is trying to put in scripts into solo play so we just don't burn thru content.
