Help with Red Dragon....

#1shadowlarPosted 10/20/2009 7:33:51 AM
ok, so I'm playing as a Magician, and I was fighting against the Red Dragon.... probably area 1-1 I guess... it's the area where you see the back of the blue dragon and several treasures on the ground, with the Red Dragon standing on the cliff above and breathing fire down whenever u get too close.

Anyway, I was blasting him with the Soul Arrow Spell and had his health down to less than 15% (estimate), and then he flew away.... will he re-appear? is there somewhere else I have to go.. something else to do to finish him off? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

i think it's 1-2 when he reappears making progress through the level a bit more difficult.

when I fought him for the first time, I'd already defeated the Tower Knight boss. Does this make any difference?

If you attack the Red Dragon at 1-1 he will always get away from you. Despite what point of the story your at and can only kill him at 1-2.

The souls they yield are not worth the time to kill them, unless you want the trophies.

what's a good spot to kill him in 1-2? I assumed the top of the towers where the archers are, but it seems impossible to get a target lock on him. ANy suggestions anyone?

I killed him from the first archer tower in 1-2. I would load up on about 150 arrows. Took me 90-100, but I missed a bunch of times. You can't lock on so you need a compound long bow and hit him in free aim mode (L1). You'll get about 8000 souls plus his soul and it will never respawn. Once you kill it, go back to 1-1 and collect everything under the where the dragons originally nested.

Great... thanks for that.

Thanks for the tips! I used a compound short bow+2 and killed it with about 70-80 arrows. Level 1-2 is going to be a lot easier now...

I stood on the first tower on the bridge at 1-2 and arrowed him to death, stand to the far right and shoot 2 arrows each pass...took around 120 arrows
