Foreword:

Since there are no really good IDN guides out there from what I have seen I decided to write a full guide to help others with the nest. I have been writing it for a while now, but since we cleared last night for the first time I thought now is a good time to release it!

At the current time I am working on adding videos for every single mechanic. This might take a while as I have to find the mechanic in a recording with a clear view of it, cut it, render it and upload it.

Criticism as well as any corrections are very welcome, as I am by no means perfect, so make sure to tell me if I fished up somewhere so I can correct it for other readers. With that being said, I hope you enjoy reading this guide and that it helps you with clearing the raid!

Up, added a bunch of videos for 1st boss mechanics, still working on adding the others aswell, but finding decent footage in my hours of recording takes a while and don't get me started about the rendering and uploading.
Not releasing the second part of dragon yet as I'm still learning details about how the mechanics work in every run. Will try to get it up by the end of the week.

He hurts like a truck rolling over your body only to then do it a few more times.
so it's better to stay safe and not attack for a while instead of DPSing without brakes.
11/10 Would read again

Added the last part of the dragon and ...
managed to delete all formatting and the video links. (clap)
Guide is complete for now, but extremely ugly to read. Will work on the formatting after I slept.
Will also work on adding more videos on every single mechanic from now on.

Very detailed guide, i'm glad someone did this *.*
By the way is it intentional to have double description of second boss Balapa dunk/opposite corner mechanic?

u should consider IDN Bosses are lvl 90 so their defence actually is shown against a lvl 90 counterpart.
100% defense  in 93 Cap is def: 233.730
so IDN Bosses now actually take more dmg.
46.530 def / 2337,30 = 19.90% def against lvl 93 players.
same goes for crit resi

I think Def/MDef is actually capped at 85% cmiiw. Maybe just slipped his mind and he typed 100% instead of cap

edit -

Since he was just calculating, he took 100% value for simpler calculation, I guess that's why he didn't mention the 85% cap
