Egomaniac Challenges are here!
Hey there, heroes!

New challenge fights have appeared at the Inn at the Edge of Time! This week, we have some classic DragonFable characters at the height of their power. Will you stand to be any match for them or will you be consumed by their flames?

Face off against the omnipotent hero in his prime, Vaal (supported by his "soulminion" Alraia), and the insane pyromaniac Xan in combat!

Defeat them both, if you are feeling particularly insane, to earn the powerful Vaal's Ego trinket! Make your foes crumble under its oppressive influence!

Also, the Mogloween Storybook is now available for the month of October! Spooky!

I beat the challenge with DmK V1 life carve and stuns. Is that cheating?

Kinda, but I think you've been grandfathered into being OP. No one new can access that same level of power.

Vaal hits like a truck and his finger snap does more damage than Thanos with the Infinity Gauntlet.

I hope that is an exaggeration but the Infinity gauntlet is far more powerful than this. Like the Infinity gauntlet (especially the real comic book one, not the pale imitation of the MCU) would literally be Verly programming the game.

Trying the think of strategies to win without DmK V1

I can beat Vaal with Dmk2 but not Xan once he's healed himself. Did anyone else have any better luck?

Xan has this permanent DoT that gets stronger every turn (similar to Toxic Myra but less extreme). At around one third HP he full heals, gains a massive defense for 30 turns boost and weakness to water for 5 turns. It might also be turn based as both times it happened just before my third soul sync.

Stun Xan just before he heals at around 3500. Then just kill him in 3 turns. My strategy is to use break, stun, and just spam life carve.

And for the duo, I used a zard burger, then killed Vaal first. After that, use the above strategy for Xan.

Xan damage and DOT is irrelevant with DmK V1 Life Carve.

Does the Trinket do anything other than a 99 turn DOT?

No, but it has the best offensive stats apparently.

Shadow X Ascendant

Anyone Beated It Without DC Itens or DmK?

I feel I'm close to beating Xan with BSW. I have managed to stun him but not at the right time, and I'm fairly certain I am one soul sync and banishment away from victory. The trouble is stunning him at that key moment.
AQ DF MQ AQW Epic  Post #: 12

Yeah BSW could be good against Xan. Stun him when he has about 3700 HP. Then Synch and Banish.

The best strategy for the duo I can think of is go fast. you want to kill them as quickly as possible so the DOT don't stack. Vaal first cause he does more damage and has less HP.

Also, Vaal nuke fails if something else is happening on screen at the time, including pet attack or enemy attack. So when the red symbols on the outside show up, just make sure you click something.

EDIT: Soul Allies have to choose the weaver just like a wand choose the wizard in Harry Potter right? And they have to be compatible right? So why would Alraia choose Vaal?

I caved and used DmK V2 on Xan. Didn't have much trouble as I expected. I'll try again with BSW after I'm done with Vaal.

I also noticed Xan is a human when he was previously an elemental.

DmK V2 is good because Malefic Binding works even if no hits connect. And Shape darkness auto hits.

Apparently every egomaniac needs a snarky sidekick. Even with only two lines, she does strike me as the snarky type.

How is Dmk V1 usable in this fight? It's banned for me, and I thought we couldnt use that armor for any challenge.
AQ DF AQW  Post #: 17
10/5/2018 21:19:31   

DmK V1 is usally banned. But for some reason it is allowed for this fight. If that has been fixed, then I guess I am lucky enough to have gotten the trinket on both my characters before the correction

EDIT: Just checked and DmK V1 and Icebound Revenant are indeed now banned. Guess I was lucky I got here early enough. Verly please don't take away my trinkets

I will have to look up Icebound Revenant since it keeps getting banned for Inn challenges, yet I never hear about it. Also apparently Google does not consider revenant a word even though it is most definitely a word.

@^: The reason Icebound Revenant is usually banned is because of its ability to constantly decrease the enemy's Ice resist until the fight becomes more or less trivial (well, relatively speaking)

Also, have I mentioned how much I like the BGM in the Vaal and Vaal/Xan challenges? Yeah, it's amazing.

I just took a crack at both of them, and while Xan is definitely doable with a properly timed stun, I have no idea how to take down Vaal. A single attack from him took out all but 300 of my health, and then he just snapped his fingers for a whopping 90,000.

@ lujikul
to beat vaal's nuke ur gonna need to have around 180 M/P/M or u have to blind him. U need to completely dodge the attack and glancing blows wont cut it either cause they do abt 7k damage. BSW with not-so-tiny-bubbles works well for this.

The massive nuke does not happen if something else is happening when the red symbols surrounding the screen appears. So if another animation is happening, including pet animation, enemy animation, or your attacks. So if you are literally doing anything other than sitting at the skill select screen it will be fine.

Combining a shield and some accuracy lowering skill or damage nerf skill should deal with his damage.

I suspect you need to be above a certain amount of health (maybe 50%?) to avoid the finger snap.

For the individual challenges, DmK v2 was able to handle them, but I don't think I can beat the duo right now. Anyone got a list of fire resist equipment? Since both Vaal and Xan are human, you can show Vile Infused weapons for 10% extra damage when you nuke them.
AQ DF  Post #: 23
10/5/2018 21:40:23   

Vaal only does his nuke when your health is low (which is just under 1000 for me), so just heal up and and hope he doesn't pummel you back under and you can avoid the snap. :X

Vaal nuke is cancelled if anything on screen is happening. So unless you are really unlucky or sit on the skill selection screen the nuke is irrelevant. Multiple times the red symbols surrounding the screen started to appear but my pet attacked or my animation started so nothing happened.
