Go to the Lair of Infinite Agony, and from there travel to the marked objective. Put 20 Eridium into the bowl, which will allow access into The Winged Storm. From here, just travel down the path, and drop down to the arena, and activate the highlighed scroll, thus beginning the fight against the Ancient Dragons of Destruction.
It is advised, instead of heavier damage, to have a good Adaptive Shield such as Evolution or Neogenator due to the elemental attacks, however, the Vault Hunter's shields are likely to be down for a large portion of the fight, so of the two the Evolution is preferred. Also, a Moxxi weapon such as the Grog Nozzle is highly recommended for this fight, seeing as it is the best way to regenerate health fast enough to stay alive.
Dealing enough damage to any one dragon will make that dragon land giving a stationary target to focus on. If the damage is scattered or otherwise ineffective, the dragons can land randomly. The order in which the dragons are killed does not necessarily matter, however Boost and Healianth can be taken out first because they can make the fight more difficult the longer the fight goes on.
Each dragon has unique abilities that should be considered. Healianth heals all dragons to full health and does horrible damage to non-Adaptive shields with his attacks. Boost increases all other dragon's level by one each time he lands, and his attacks can Slag players, even while airborne. Incinerator will cloak himself with his wings while grounded, reflecting bullets back at the attacker, and can also ignite large portions of the arena, which can make it difficult to rescue a player in Fight for your Life. Brood's attacks are easy to dodge and it summons Green Basilisks for achieving Second Winds.
If finishing off dragons before they take flight again is an issue then the order should have Healianth as first and Boost as last since Healianth will heal damage done to the other dragons and Boost will up the level of all other dragons. On the other hand, if the vault hunter(s) is effective in defeating dragons relatively quickly then Boost should be first to preclude random landings followed by Healianth to prevent healing. In any event, Brood can be left relatively alone unless a fight for your life situation is foreseeable and damage can be focused on him to cause a landing for Green Basilisks to be summoned.
Salvador seems to be the most viable character for soloing the Dragons, seeing as he can have a Miss Moxxi weapon in one hand, and a high damage weapon in the other hand, which lets him regenerate his health and do lots of damage simultaneously. Inconceivable and Money Shot are invaluable for this strategy. Wielding a powerful weapon of the same type as the Moxxi weapon being used, along with Divergent Likeness, is also recommended; perhaps the best combination being Rubi, with its greatly increased health return, and a powerful pistol such as Unkempt Harold; or Maggie, especially if not utilizing Keep Firing.
For the above reasons, in team play, a Gunzerker can always be at the core for damage output. However, Sirens, Psychos, and Commandos make excellent teams. Sirens can Res from a distance, Psychos can survive with Elemental Empathy and a Grog Nozzle for revives, and Commandos can provide cover with Phalanx Shield turrets. With the right combination, strategy and damage output, controlling which dragons land can overcome scattered damage from torrents and Flame of the Firehawk shields.
Upon completion, a massive quantity of loot will erupt from the middle of the arena, including one of their unique Seraph items, a large number of seraph crystals, and a great deal of Eridium. A bridge will also appear, granting access to a massive number of chests. The first chamber past the bridge houses many Mimics; all chests in this room are Mimics, which can be fought for extra Eridium and loot drops. Beyond the Mimics are many Dice Chests.
- The mission title appears to take its name from the movie Raiders of the Lost Ark.
