Some time ago I decided to try to answer the following question:

What is recorded in the death log if a Stuffed Dragon kills you? - TibiaQA

Most of the fansites state that it is extremely rare that Stuffed Dragon can hit us for 1HP when we use it. At the same time, it should say "You will burn". I decided to check it out and test this extreme rare effect. Due to the fact that Stuffed Dragon has a cooldown I bought 27 of them. I set the use of the item to hotkey. This allowed me to use the item a very large number of times per minute.

So far I used Stuffed Dragon about 35,000 times during my research. And guess what happened. Nothing! Not once did Stuffed Dragon hit me for 1HP and say "You Will Burn". Let me add that I tried to trigger this effect on two different characters.

I'd like to know what the term "Extremely rare" means. What is the chance that Stuffed Dragon will hit us for 1HP? Or is it impossible to trigger?

Additional question:

Is there a screenshot on the web confirming the "You will burn" sound by Stuffed Dragon?

Just a guess here, but I believe maybe it won't happen if you are in a PZ when you use them? Did you do all of your testing from a PZ?

I wasn't in PZ during my research. The place you see in the attached image is the roof of the Explorer Society headquarters in Yalahar. So there's no PZ there. I've been to a few other locations but none of them were in PZ.

I continue to try to research this. Yesterday and the day before yesterday I pulled off all my equipment and made about 6000 attempts. So we have about 41,000 trials in total.

Possibly not related but still I will ask- Did you try it on the char where achievement " I need hug" is not unlocked?

Yes, there were probably 25,000 attempts by characters without this achievement. I don't know the exact number. It's an estimate. The rest of the trials were on character who have the achievement.

Hi, I started to check this, but I want to confirm also below:
Did you check other worlds other than Optional PvP? I will be checking on Open PvP and will get back to you in next days.

It's great that you're going to try to check it out. I hope you are able to create this effect. I only tested it on Optional PVP.

Just quick comment- Ryocrits managed to trigger the effect, however, she was not aware of the investigations. Perhaps it was bugged before and now after new update is working again- so let's try our tests again!

Wow. Thanks for the information. I already wrote a comment there. I'm very curious when someone will manage to make screenshoot of this effect.

I was curious about this at one point as well, but however I was trying it with a character with already 1HP.
I wanted to see what the death would be on tibia.com. However I tried for a while but when nothing happened I got bored and gave up, good luck though!

So I went ahead and tried my luck, here is my research based on my experience...

When you "use"Stuffed Dragon you have the chance to get various messages with different occurences:

As we know, the Extremely Rare Message "You... will.... burn!!"  will also "burn" you and you'll recieve fire damage for 1 hitpoint... but, what is the chance of this happening?

Stuffed Dragon 2,000 trials:

In my case, I got the "You...will...burn!!" message in the attemp 1889 out of 2000 trials.

For the additional question whether is there any screenshot on the web confirming the "You...will...burn!!" sound, you can find the uncropped version here: TibiaGallery Stuffed Dragon.

Additional notes:

- I used only 1 Stuffed dragon during the whole research

- The Stuffed Dragon was not in my backpack, it was on the floor, therefore all the clicks were done "manually", no hotkey used

- I was wearing Fabulous Legs and Falcon Escutcheon (yeah, silly me) so I was not hurt for the 1 hp since the damage is fire based

- I wasn't on PZ during my research. I was on Darashia Desert

- I do not have the "I need hug" Achievement

In my opinion, 2000 trials is not enough to determine chance in this case unfortunately. Maybe you can run even more trials to see if there is indeed a chance as once in 2000 will be confirmed? I know it is difficult because of the time consuming task but it is probably worth it :)

I will try to recreate! To have a bigger sample and hopefully another good proof. Maybe I was extremely lucky but I don't consider my self lucky... this is comming from a guy with 0 Oberon drops and 0 Lord Retro drops killing daily haha

I done it more than 2k times several times and never received this message neither damage. But yeah- I used more than one Stuffed Dragon on hotkey and was in my bp. Congrats on resolving !:)
