Tips on How to Kill a Dragon

A Reddit user has given extremely helpful tips on how to kill a dragon. This will help players in correcting the computer-controlled teammates and give a better fight against enemies and dragons.

Below are the tips on how to kill a dragon (Reddit):

·      Bring at least one mage and set their "Barrier" ability to "off", and manually use it. Give your mages staves that the dragon is weak against. I.E. the Ferelden Frostback would be weak to ice staves. Same goes for which mage trees to use, but atleast have the "barrier ability." It's also recommended they have the "Peacefull Aura" and "Guardian Spirit" abilities, since they are both really useful for ranged mages.

·      All ranged characters have to stand close enough so that the dragon doesn't use the "pull" ability. It is likely to give 2-3 shots to your ranged characters. If possible, put one ranged character far enough for the drag to initiate the pull move, and then manually move them closer. It forces the dragon through the full animation giving you free time to do damage, and do other things.

·      The "fire breath" (continuous stream) is slow to dodge, try to time the animation and run horizontally away from its mouth.

·      When the dragon flies around shooting elemental balls, either manually set everyone to run in opposite directions, or clump and use the barrier ability.

·      Try to attack one of the legs with all members other than the tank. For example, set everyone to attack the back right leg, while Cassandra/Blackwall attacks the face. It will stop the drag from moving around so much.

·      Bring Resistant pots for the specific drag that you fight, i.e. "Fire Resistant Tonic" for the Fereldan Frostback. Try to upgrade them as well. Solas and other mages can use the dispel ability in the spirit tree to remove debuffs, i.e. the fire effect from the Frostback drag or other lingering effects from other dragons. (Works on mob abilities as well)

·      When the frostback is summoning mobs and is on a ledge where you can't reach her, stand below the ledge and use the "stand ground" command. Manually use characters to kill the mobs. This will keep it from lobbing fireballs at you.

·      Optionally bring Iron Bull to dragon fights. His dialogues are funny.

A.I Tips

·      Set ranged characters to "defend / self." That way theydon't run up to enemies.

·      Set Melee characters (not tanks) to "follow / self". That way they attack anybody and don't follow the Inquisitors target.

·      Set Melee characters (not tanks) to "follow / tank/inquisitor". That way they will target the tank/Inquisitors target, making it easier to kill specific enemies.

·      Set Melee characters (tanks) to "follow / self". That way they will attack and taunt anyone, not just the Inquisitors target.

·      It's good practice to set abilities to "preferred," such as barrier on mages, "taunt/challenge" on tanks, "jumping shot" on rogues. It makes the game A.I.'s way easier to control when they constantly use important abilities.

·      Keeping characters mana/stamina pools at 50% especially that of the mages, allows for the usage of important abilities.

·      For "Reaver" characters i.e. Iron Bull, set their flask limit to a certain amount so they don't use all your pots. I suggest using rejuvenation pots on them, since they are easy to make. (Buy elfroot for 20g at the crossroads in the Hinterlands trader.)

·      For "Knight Enchanter" characters i.e. Vivviene, set their preferred abilities to "Barrier," "Spirit Blade," "Fade Cloak," "Disruption Field," "Fade Step," and set all their other abilities that you don't want them to use to 'off'. That way they act as mage tanks (and do a lot of damage in the process.)
