How to Beat the Aeonblight Drake

Interrupt its Attacks as much as Possible

You can interrupt the Aeonblight Drake's attacks if it's core is exposed. Aim and shoot at the glowing cores on the head or at the center of the Aeonblight Drake's body.

This interrupts their attack, stuns them for a short time, and removes the Elemental Resistance it obtained during the battle!

Aeonblight Drake Resistances

Gains Elemental Resistance Based on the Last Attack Received

Like other Ruin Drakes, the Aeonblight Drake will gain Elemental Resistance depending on the last element it was affected by. You will know which element the Aeonblight Drake is currently resistant to, by checking the color of its canisters. Switch to a different element until its resistance is removed!

Shoot Its Core to Remove Resistances

The Aeonblight Drake's elemental resistances will return to normal after hitting its core. This will also weaken the drake and make it vulnerable to attacks, before switching forms.

Adventurer Handbook Description
This dragon-shaped combat machine is a being that inspires fear, much like the lord who once ruled these vast lands.
It is said that the now-destroyed realm once sought forbidden knowledge and attempted to create perpetual-motion machines that could match or even surpass primordial lifeforms. This mysterious, tireless mechanical monstrosity seems to be proof that they did indeed reach heights that mortals should never have attained.
Devantaka Mountain, Sumeru

It should be noted that the clusterbloom arrows on Tighnaris level 2 charged attack will aim for the weak spots on its wings, meaning you only have to hit one weak spot instead of two to have it enter paralysis. This makes Tighnari one of the best bow characters to fight this boss
