Talk:Dagannoth Mother (Blood Runs Deep)
Max and attack styles?[edit source]
Can anyone confirm the max and the fact it uses range? I never seen it using a range attack (than again it could be due to the fact I was close enough to melee it) it never hit more than 15 on me and anything over 10 was fairly uncommon. Chaos knight 07:08, December 16, 2009 (UTC)
- I can, but she even hit with range if you're close enough to melee her. However, she uses magic most frequently I guess.--Dylandeklerk 09:29, December 16, 2009 (UTC)
- Okay, thank you for confirming, was more curious about the range attack than anything as I found it odd how I never once was hit by anything but the water spell and seeing her try to melee me while protect was on, was wanting to just confirm the max due to it seeming uneven due to, as I had stated above, her barely hitting 13s.

- She probably did use the ranged attack against you, but the spikes sorta blend in with the surroundings, that's why you didn't get hit for much. 11:22, December 17, 2009 (UTC)
Added the strategy I used against her, which I've dubbed the "Click-efficient" strategy. Basically just sacrifices Ranged for more clicks + taking Melee void. 13:35, December 16, 2009 (UTC)
Mage strategy should be the main tip, the one in the quest guide.[edit source]
A mage strategy should be the main strategy presented in the quest guide. There is no ignoring that 4 of 7 styles are magic based. The Dagannoth mother does not move towards the player to attack with melee, thus while protecting from range, arguably the most common attack used by the Dagannoth mother, the player may only be damaged by the magic attack.
Thus, the strategy requiring least effort, and the easiest strategy for almost all players is wearing either mystic robes or Ahrim's robes wielding a bow and concentrating on 6 of the 7 styles eliminating the use of melee. Melee may be used at player discretion, but the easiest strategy is arguably not using melee, thus eliminating the need for changing protection prayers. --Tortilliachp 20:21, December 26, 2009 (UTC)
Melee balmung?[edit source]
Ok lets clear this up do you need to use Balmung to damage her when she is week to melee because both this artical and the quest's artical have coniradictions.12:35, April 8, 2010 (UTC)
Evolution of Combat[edit source]
She doesn't seem to use anything else than Melee attacks, and remains Gray during the whole fight, even after you strike her with Balmung... Mage armor negates almost all damage and Balmung can be used for the entire fight to dispose of her quickly. Extremely unsatisfying fight.

I've fought her a lot recently in the Dominion Tower and she doesn't appear to be glitched there - When you've got lots of debuffs going on she becomes one of the hardest fights because of her colour changing moving faster than you can change! 126.96.36.199 18:32, March 16, 2013 (UTC)
I just killed her with only using balmung. Her back didn't seem to be orange, just grey, so she didn't change colors. I think it may be a worthwhile bug to mention. That is if anybody else has experienced the same thing. I did not kill her quickly so she definately should have changed colors —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) on 11:49, August 3, 2013.
I also just finished this quest, expecting (and kind of dreading) a really tough fight... and then she didn't change colors at all, allowing me to kill her easily with just the Balmung. Clearly something funky going on with her since EoC. 184.108.40.206 00:26, October 28, 2013 (UTC) 220.127.116.11 00:26, October 28, 2013 (UTC)
Impossible to defeat in dominion tower??[edit source]
i just finished meeting her in the dominion tower and because i know in the past was able to simply bring a staff for mage with only air runes, a cbow with bolts for when she turns green and a melee weapon for when she turns orange, and when the fight started, after hitting her with balmung to get her to the main battle stage, she changed to blue (water spellls) and then she turned red (fire spells) and then she turned blue again, at first i thought "wow im really unlucky", but then as the fight continued these were the only two colours which she changed to. i stayed in the fight until changed colours around 30times give or take a couple, then i just let myself die. i was wondering if this has happened to anyone else?

I am expiriencing a bug right now with her during Blood Runs Deep - I can't complete the quest! She is doing exactly what the above comment said, changing from blue to red but nothing else! And no matter what I use, she will not take ANY damage after the axe. So I thought at first it was just me, and gave a bug report. But I'm really upset, as I'm working for my completionist cape and can't complete this quest. If anybody knows of a solution to this, please let me know!

I am currently fighting the Dagannoth Mother. I started by using Balmung but she is only going between red and blue. She will not change. I also did not bring any runes. I guess I will have to die and restart.[[File:Runescape_glitch_balmung.png|frame|Red and Blue switch]]
