Golestandt  

Realm: Albion
Type: Dragon
Gives Master Level Exp
Description:
Per patch 1.100 (12.15.09):
* Golestandt: This monster has been increased in difficulty, will now have a chance to spawn more frequently and has been moved back inside his lair with adjustments made to address pathing issues while inside the lair. Additionally, Golestandt’s corpse will now decay within a half hour in order to allow players to forcibly spawn him once every half hour if Gerrik’s Sword is used.
* Adolescent dragons have been increased in difficulty.


Per the 1.101 Release Notes 02.24.10:

Golestandt: The damage values of this monster have been reduced. The main breath weapon attack now gives an immunity timer that protects against further resistance debuffs. The primary special attacks have had their reuse timer increased from 2 minutes to 5 minutes. New mechanics have been put into place to target inattentive players.

    Killing Golestandt Easily
    # Dec 29 2008 at 8:35 AM Rating: Decent
    All it takes is one FG of 50's or less. 50 Warrior with 2h, a healing class with 10% spell range and 25% heal effectiveness to keep him alive, and then a rezzer and a scout. You can have 5 scouts total, that'll bring him down quickly. The other three classes are necessities, 50 Tank, 50 Healer Class, 50 Rezzer, then the Scouts do the dirty work as the tank keeps aggro. If the scouts start to get killed do not heal them, simply let them die then rezz them, this happens several times, however it keeps aggro off of the healers, and the healer at 10% never gets aggro. When Golestandt is at 50% be careful because 3 or 4 adds spawn and go for the healer, have the scouts attack and stop them along with the other rezzer, preferably a hybrid such as a Friar for example. Then when they die go back to the dragon and finish him off for your loot! Hope this helps.
    we have 7maned him on classic/toa/and co-op

    no major speed differance just takes a few fires rather then a fop
    2 clerics 1 arms 3scouts and a friar arms needs good con/hp/resists and aom3+ other then that its cake if you have people that know what there doing if your dieing with 3fg's you might want to invest in some better gear

    Do Cuuldrach and Gjalpinulva (on Alb) drop any loot?

    Someone needs to post an updated picture, by the way.

    We went in there with 6 full groups and still wiped on the classic server, we heard rumors that this encounter would require over a 100ppl to do. But in that case dosen't leave much to roll on when the raid is over unless you camp him for like 4 kills, just to allow everyone to get a set of stones.

    We were doing 1 - 2 groups on the newest Golestant, but now she calls her brother and sister from Hib and Mid to her aide. We have been unable to drop all three. The hib and mid dragons both fall fast and only drop coin, but by the time you get Gole down to 25 - 50% she calls them back again. The call is on a timer, it's seeming that you'll need a good solid 5 groups to handle this encounter now.

    Welcome to no more easymode PvE. This is looking like a truely epic, and fun encounter.

    "dragon raids on a roleplay (toa) server" there is your answer, you do yours a TOA server, and the 3FG taking 2.5 hours was on a classic server. Roll an alb on Gareth, using a free 14 day trial acount and try one the dragon raids that usually takes 35 people, and see how long it takes it you Guddas. And I haven't seen a single 8 man group or even heard of an 8 man group beating the dragon on Gareth.

    "It took out our BG of 5 groups of 50s. We couldn't get it below 95% after 30 minutes and we were hitting it with everything we had. That is one very tough dragon. "

    Make sure nobody is using a weapon with a fire proc on it.
    2.5 hours ?
    # May 15 2006 at 3:44 PM Rating: Decent
    Oh, and also....

    "It took us 2 and half hours to kill him with 23 poeple"

    I don't understand how it could take that long with 3fg. It didn't even take that long when I killed it with my 8-man, it takes about half an hour or less when I take a full 3fg raid there.

    "I've seen this dragon wipe out 3+ groups of all 50s"

    "3+? BAH! This bad boy wiped our 6 group raid! I got some nice Pics so I'll send a better one in."

    If anyone happens to be reading here, this information is very out of date. With a good method and leader and class setup 3fg is pretty easy, I hold regular 3fg dragon raids on a roleplay (toa) server. I killed him once with 16 people, only 3 clerics. Also, this weekend I killed him with a group of 8, highest realm rank was r6, but those were all people very experience with dragon raids.

    "does anyone have a 3 group methed for alb dragon. there is one for mid dragon"

    I may come out with one soon if I have some time...

    It will take your group a while but you can take down this dragon with only 3 groups and one solo rezzer. Have two pallies be main aggro holders, cross guarded and the only two pallies twisting heal chant, with their protects on the clerics healing them. Everyone except the solo rezzer (who needs to be outside of lair and tucked away not to draw aggro when giants spawn again) has to be inside the dragon's melee range, yes even teh healers and casters. If you cast anything outside his melee range he will AOE fire that person and anyone near him. He gives warnnings before his blast, Text will say Golestandt glares at Player's Name. Whoever gets glared at needs to run away from group immediately. Golestandt will occosionally ...lol... toss people into the air, when he does, strafe while in mid flght to avoid landed on his mound this will lower the amount of damage taken when you land. Theurgs need to spam pets on this guy as much as they can...the more attackers the lower his AF goes down and makes it easier to take him drop him faster (remember to kill pets once he is below 5%, if pet gets deathblow no loot will drop). It took us 2 and half hours to kill him with 23 poeple (25 started 2 had to leave). The solo rezzer is in case nobody is paying attention when the dragon glares and wipes out the your group, which may happen more than once. Have that rezzer target rezzers first and get the group up and go back to it. Using 25 people takes longer but you get 2 respec stones per person out of it, and usually between 4-6 MP items to roll for. Designate one group as main aggro, one group as main rez and one group as main power restore with some necros in it that can be battery backs for casters and more importantly clerics. This is how we did it in albion, at least.
