The Witcher 3: How to Beat Dragon (Forktail)

How to Beat Dragon (Forktail)

The Dragon of Fyresdal, like most Forktails looks a lot more intimidating than it actually is and this fight is reminiscent to the Basilisk, Cockatrice and Griffin fights we’ve encountered earlier in the game. Fortunately, it acts in much the same way as the aforementioned monsters and as such the tactics remain essentially the same.

Whilst it does have wings, for the most part it will attack from the ground and is quite fast. It will commonly use its speed and mouth full of teeth to lunge at Geralt from range or perform pouncing attacks. Similar to the Basilisks it is able to spit green projectiles at you which will poison Geralt if it makes contact. When it is in the air, it will try a swooping attack that can be easily rolled under/away from but will hit like a tonne of bricks if not avoided.

The easiest way to take it down quickly is to use a combination of AXII to stun it, IGNI and AARD to dish out damage or YRDEN to slow its movements to get a few attacks in. It is also quite susceptible to damage from Grapeshot Bombs. Whilst in the air, hit it with crossbow bolts or AARD whilst it is flying to bring it crashing to the ground – run up and smash it a few times and then use your dodges and rolls to avoid its ground-based attacks whilst dishing out your own attacks when you see an opening. Repeat this process until it hits the dust.
