Safety Dance

Safety Dance is an achievement that requires the player to avoid 20 fire waves spawned by the Queen Black Dragon in total in one instance of the fight. Restarting the fight will restart the counter. The fight does not have to be finished once 20 waves have been dodged.

Progress towards the achievement is awarded as the last fire wave of a single special attack reaches the end of the arena platform. The achievement is awarded as soon as twenty fire waves are tallied as avoided - it is not necessary to finish the fight afterwards.

The easiest way to unlock this achievement, is by drinking a super antifire flask at the beginning of the fight, standing at a distance big enough from her, so she won't attack the player with melee and by praying Deflect Missiles or Protect from Missiles. Remain in phase one for the duration of the achievement, because the fire wave is her only special attack. Though she may spawn more fire walls in the next two phases, they may be overriden by other mechanics.

Note: During phases 2-4, all fire waves must be dodged - if the player gets hit by any one of the sent fire waves, then all of them will not count towards the achievement.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The achievement name is a reference to the 1983 song The Safety Dance by Men Without Hats.
  • The achievement name is shared with a World of Warcraft achievement obtainable in a fight against Heigan the Unclean, well known for his own special attack which requires proper positioning to be avoided.
  • There is a glitch where the game will register an invisible fire wave attack if the player phases the Queen Black Dragon as a fire wave is sent, which will still count as dodged despite not appearing at all.
