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.

      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.

                    You can use wildfire to stunlock the wyrm by using it right as it attacks over and over at it. Use only if your having a real problem with guy.

                      The dragon did not die as it glitched off the edge of the screen, it still tried to jump at me forcing me to leave and restart the fight.

                          The Wyrm just committed suicide12 Apr 2016 23:35  

                          It ended up doing its lunge attack out of the arena and fell to its death. It was right on the edge of the screen and must not have realised I was behind it, because it peforemed its attack opposite where I was standing.Meh.I'll take it.

                            The Dragon Died From Falling?08 Apr 2016 20:59  

                            So I was fighting the dragon and after a short fight he seemed to glitch out because he started to attack something outside the arena. Ten i thought that he was attacking me but he seems to have jumped off and died. I was still rewarded the salt and his item drop but couldn't get the gold. Has this happened to anyone else?

                              So i just figuted this boss out and was about to kill him. He had one eighth of his hp left when he suddenly glitched out of the arena! I heard him attacking a little bit and then hr died, apparently jumped off a ledge. I play a thief with a knife and i find it funny...

                                Free salt on new game +21 Mar 2016 06:11  

                                Just a note for people at least on New Game Plus. This boss is the easiest boss -ever- with the incantation Dark Swarm. Not only can it not miss, with not so great magic, the spell still does about 1/15th of its health on cast and, best of all, completely stun locks the boss. Forever. Every hit of the multiple hit incantation will stun it. Just spam away and you win free salt!

                                  Finally beat him19 Mar 2016 00:25  

                                  I'm a hunter. Tried for about an hour on this boss. Finally got it after spending some points on strength and switching to a two handed long sword which would occasionally stagger it. The whip was just not doing enough damage. I'm level 38 currently. Love this game.

                                    I had such a hard time with this boss as a mage character. When I finally beat him, I just spammed Wildfire (Class 2 Magic). It does quite a bit of damage, but most importantly, it will stagger the boss EVERY TIME. So when he'd fly up in the air to breathe fire, just dodge in the opposite direction so you can get some swings in when he lands, then just spam Wildfire.Stats when defeating this boss: Level 32 - Magic 30, Willpower 10
