Combat Information

  • Attack Types: Strike and Fire
  • Weak vs: Elemental Damage
  • Strong vs: Poison and Slash damage.

Phase 1

  • Tail Swipe - swipes his tail over floor sending you flying, you can jump over it.
  • Fire Breath - breathes fire in front of him, his back is a safe spot.
  • Bite - fast bite attack in front.
  • Jump Attack - jumps over the player if he is far away from the boss.
  • Flight - gets airborne above arena and flies over to the side of the arena breathing fire over it, avoidable by moving till the end of arena side dragon is or another end. Following him when he is airborne before breath attack is one of the most efficient ways to deal damage.

          Used to be a stupidly hard boss which completely blocked me. Now I can beat it while getting hit less than I get hit by the Sodden Knight. No nerfs, it's just that I've fought it about 600 times and thus learned how to counter it.

            This is kind of a sequence break, and it does mean the Nomad won't show up in the Castle and some other stuff, but you CAN progress without killing the Wyrm. The secret is to have a somewhat high endurance and no equipment on aside from the Endurance Ring. With around 20 or so Endurance with just the ring, you can "Long Jump" in order to reach the Thief without having to fight the Wyrm, allowing you to get the Brand early. Long Jump (on PS4 at least) can be done by pressing roll and jump at the same time while standing still, and is much more effective the lower your weight is compared to your endurance. The sweet spot for the jump is the second to last platform, just below the wall blocking you from jumping over normally.

              Sure, the fire will destroy anyone who hasn't built themselves to tank, but the real dangers here are the arbitrary restrictions to the battlefield and the fact that when he staggers (and he does it a lot) he moves you around. One of the worst bosses of a good game.

                    the secret is the sky the best position, in some cases, to attack him is jumping. You can dodge its ground attacks and with luck stag when it beggins to fly sorry the bad english

                      Hard boss for Dexterity build and easy prey for a heavy knight with a Greatsword or -hammer.

                      Don't fight him with the whips - they deal little damage.

                        This wyrm give me pain in the ass. Got killed thousand time. Since i build my char pikeman with heavyarmor and not a big fans of shield, i realize being agile are better. So i toke off my armor and fight this thing naked. It become wired, this thing damage not big enough to one hit me even when i am naked, and the damage are similar when i am in armor.

                          They should've made this boss black or dark blue so it could blend into the sky. Maybe it would've added a bit of tension during the fight. Instead, they made it blend into the bestiary...

                            The first attack this dragon does to me on my around 15th attempt, he flies for his breath attack, then lands outside the arena, where he died around 10 seconds later (pretty similar to how Dark Souls bosses react once they've left the arena as well). Couldn't help but have a good laugh at that. Followed by me audibly saying "We take those." And then round 15 seconds later, "I did not deserve that."

                              The Dragon just die on his own... His HP bar turned yellow and decreased to 0 in just 3 or 4sec. I was granted the salt, but not the gold.

                                the shield makes this boss a jokei'd swap from an axe/sheild to my twohander to stagger him outa any ground attacks but i let him fly around all he wanted cause when he did i'd get a free 2hr great hammer swing in taking a chunk of his life. easiest fight of the game for me.
