|I can't believe it... Father just killed a dragon! I've never seen him fight like that before. I mean, I know he's really strong and all, but this thing was huge! The dragon's name was Hraezlyr, which is sort of like the word for "Terror". It's an appropriate name too—he's vicious, ugly, and shoots lightning out of his mouth. Luckily, Father was able to find some Yggdrasil tree sap crystals, and he used them to stun Hraezlyr. Then he stabbed a big crystal into his throat! There was a big explosion, and down went the dragon. I'm still shaking from the excitement, but Father's doesn't even seem fazed. Does he ever get scared?
You will encounter Hraezlyr two times during your trek up the mountain. The first being when you ride the elevator to the top, and the second being when you save Sindri.
|Ride the elevator up to the top of the mountain.

Upgrade Level 3
You'll want to wait first until Hraezlyr makes the first move, just so you can have a bit of time to attack his hand holding the elevator in place in full force.
Hraezlyr will use its free hand to strike at you when you're at a distance. Block this.
When you move in to strike at its hand, it will attack you with hits snout. Evade this or block it.
Wait until the great beast makes the first move. This will leave you with time to learn a few of his attack patterns, as well as how to strike at him critically to make the fight shorter.
He will shoot lightning from his mouth up into the sky. Lightning bolts will then rain down on you, indicated by the electric mist that gathers beneath you. Evade these.
A variant of this attack will be when it shoots lightning on the ground before focusing it on you.
The beast will rear back and slam both its hands on the ground to send a wave against you. Block these.
He will directly swipe at you with its hands. Avoid these strikes, and counter with your own hits when its hands get stuck in the ground.
A variant of this attack will be when it slides its hand across the ground.
Adopt a defensive mindset when you're up against this dragon. Wait for his attacks where he opens his mouth for a lightning attack – there are red crystals scattered to the sides of the area you fight in which you can throw at the dragon when electricity courses out of its mouth.
