The Messiah

Defeated the Ur-Dragon.

Your first opportunity to fight the Ur-Dragon is in the Everfall (after you defeat the dragon boss). Enter the Chamber of Lament, 7 chambers down. If you don't want to fight him here, you can find him in NG+. There will be a portcrystal on the beach in Cassardis which can be used to get to him.

His health is affected by everyone else playing the game online. Their attacks hurt him and when the Ur-Dragon kills them or one of them fleas, he gains health. If you're lucky, you will join the fight when he is at low health. If you join and he has lots of health you can leave and join again another time, but if you leave he gains health from it.

You can fight the Ur-Dragon offline and he will be easier to kill than he would be if you fought him online with lots of health. You will be the only person hurting this Ur-Dragon, the loot will be different, and he will still be very difficult to kill compared to other enemies in the game.

Do we have to deliver the final blow or just have participated in whittling him down?

In the area towards the end of the game one of the platforms you can grab onto while falling takes you to a desert black hole purple fire area (no way to really describe it, youll know when you're there) there's three pawns that attack you, only place in the game that I was attacked by pawns. There will be a stone in the back with a list of all the people who've slain the Ur-Dragon, there were 5 when I checked before dealing any damage. Because it's a community kill I lowered it to 1 bar out of 10 and quit without saving so that it uploaded an almost dead dragon to the server. I will do this the next time I get to the end of the game again.

@Luomo alternatively from what #6 said you will upon a new game plus discover a rift stone on the beach at Cassardis that was never there before and bingo. -it'll notify you too of what lies within-

Have to land the killing blow to get this achievement. If you are having trouble killing the online version you can always fight the offline version alone.

@12 there's glowing spots on him, a bunch of em. got to attack them till the heart is visible and whack at them till they dissapear. there's two you might be better off with an archer as they are on his wings. i haven't been able to climb up there to hit them

4 hours so far i can't do the last 1/2 of it's bar, the glowing points are on the tips of it's wings, can't climb them, can't archer them (does nothing). Out of patience.

You can just kill him in offline mode. He dies very quickly in comparison.

Late to the game, and not having much luck with the online version. Did get the Totem Mace and Lustrous Greatshield for 'helping' with one kill, so it hasn't been a complete waste. Any YouTube video I see from last year doesn't include the firestorm of spells I run into now, like they upped the difficulty over time. I would also help if one darn heart would break when I knife it dozens of times. All that's left for me is this Achievement and the 2-times-won one, so offline is probably my next move...

that freaking thing, took me 2 tries to get him down to half health and all purple balls down (offline of course and hard mode since noone online anymore) but 7 tries to finish him off, none of my stupid npc would attack him or use magic on him. i tried with sorcerers, mages, fighters and warriors... all they do is die all over and the stupid fighters all they do is keep bringing the dead ones to me! i tell you, i tried everything to climb on his wing to hit it but the camera would never let me see a thing and my guy keep turning in circle so i had to shoot him. took forever, never doing this one again!.
