Yeah... I have no idea what I could have done to prevent this. Went in with the best equipment I could find and massive amounts of health, stealth, regen, and swift figuring it was a sure win... and then this. Every item gone with a single blow? To add insult to injury, even when I escaped outside to gather more gear, he hit me again when he followed me out and sniped me, taking out all 8 items again and leaving me with 18 Health. What could even be done about that?

Haha, I did have fire weakness and didn't notice it! I didn't stand much of a chance after my items were gone, but looks like I'd signed up for it without fire resist. I've beaten this campaign a couple times but critical weakness to fire... yeah, that'll do it. I will remember to be wary of weaknesses the whole game and not just up until boss time from now on, still enjoying this game a lot. I'm glad that I picked it up during the summer sale :)

This shows the importance of resistances/vulnerabilities. Having the most powerful equipment isn't always the best option. You can have the best stuff in the world but if you go up against a dragon whilst you are vulnerable to fire damage you are going to get creamed. And that my friend is the hardest dragon in the game so you got doubly creamed.

With those stats you'd have took him out in a couple of shots if you'd been resistant to fire damage. Next time look for the dragon armour that one of the pre-boss monsters drops, in your screenshot it's at the entrance to the throne room, as that has fire resistance and will make the boss fight much easier.
