  • Diamond Armlet

White Dragon Boss Fight Strategies 

To get the Whitewyrm Bone, you should know that facing the White Dragon without any precautions might kill your character faster than you could ever imagine. Therefore, let’s look at how you might be able to fight the dragon and take it down. 

  • The dragon will feature a few similarities that players can note with the Akashic Dragon, including a few attack patterns. 
  • Encountering the white dragon, Clive takes out his sword before stating that it must be one of the dragoons’ pets, and the dragon simply howls at him, and the boss fight starts. 

Start Of Fight 

The white dragon will start the boss fight quite aggressively, launching projectiles that look like shards toward you. 

Launching Out First Shard

  • It will launch out one shard toward the far left side of the battle area, and then it will be followed by a second projectile that he will shoot out towards the right of the first projectile. 
  • The White Dragon follows up the shard attacks by shooting out a projectile that will be placed right behind the second projectile launched. 
  • Remember that these shards will resemble crystals sticking to the ground, and you want to steer clear of them and evade them.

  • The dragon will then follow up with five projectiles from the left and five from the right, which fly and arch toward the player. 

After that, the dragon follows up an attack by getting a bit closer to the player, spinning around from where it is standing, and unleashing a giant circle of ice crystals; if they end up hitting the player, it can severely drain your HP.

  • After releasing the circular crystals, it remains stagnant for a few seconds, giving you the perfect time to get closer to it to launch a few attacks. 
  • There will also be an attack where the White Dragon gets on its hind legs and stays there for a split second before slamming down the forelegs, causing two parallel lines of ice crystals to get unleashed.

  • The White dragon may also pick up its wings and rotate them towards you, slamming them down in front of you, and when it does that, you should stay on the inside of it. 

As the white dragon slams its wings toward you vertically, it will cast more ice crystals. Therefore, it is crucial to remain on the inside of the wings.

Fight Continuation 

Occasionally, the dragon will also fly up and stay a bit of distance; it will stay afloat with its wings flapped out, cast out one ice projectile at a time, and launch out 5-6 projectiles

  • The best way to stay protected from the projectiles is to know they will travel in a line.
  • The dragon also casts out an attack called the Heavenly Host, which allows it to release 5 spectral projectiles toward the player, but they travel incredibly slowly, so avoiding them should be easy.

  • The heavenly host attack will also be followed by the same 9-10 projectiles that arch toward the player and then target you.
  • The dragon keeps following through with its attacks, including where it lifts its wings and launches it down, causing a shockwave of ice crystals to get released in your general direction.

After that, the dragon becomes vulnerable for a little bit. It roars and then lies down with its head exposed, giving you the perfect opportunity to head in and unleash as many attacks as possible, draining its HP more and more. The white dragon will remain vulnerable for quite a bit. 

Phase Two 

After being vulnerable for a while, the dragon that grants you the Whitewyrm Bone will stop being staggered and get up, which marks the beginning of phase two. 

One of the main attacks that it will carry out is to get on its hind legs, and it will release crystals that will slowly descend to the floor, after which they will stretch out and then become ice beams that will continue to rotate and will be targeting you.

  • After that, the dragon slams back onto the ground, which causes it to release yet another shockwave of ice crystals all in a second, which can severely hurt you if you are not careful enough.

  • Another attack will be to jump up and then slam down its body against the ground, causing a heavier attack. 
  • It returns to its hind legs to carry out the same attack pattern, unleashing the same ice crystals. 

Another interesting pattern that won’t be seen in phase one is the white dragon firing down icy breaths onto the ground, which covers the ground with a circular radius where there are tiny crystals of ice, and the best way to avoid that is to simply head away from the radius as it continues to expand. The shards then expand and then blow outwards before disappearing.

  • Heavenly Host is cast out again, but this time, 7-8 spherical orbs will be launched toward you instead of the five seen in phase one. 
  • The ice projectiles are also cast out from both left and right as they reach you and target you.

  • It will also target you and launch a crystal in a crisscross position. 

Towards the end of the fight, the dragon will practically go insane, launching projectiles and orbs and targeting your left, right, and center, and it’s all about timing, strategy, and prioritizing your attacks. The dragon also casts out its Dragon Dance attack. 

  • The dragon dance attack typically consists of everything at once, from Heavenly Host to projectiles from Emanation.
  • As the boss fight ends, you should be able to get 3 Whitewyrm Bones, 20 Bloody Hide as well as 20 Sharp Fang.
