How to Beat Ebony Odogaron

Affinity and Weakpoints

How to Beat - Ebony Odogaron 1.png
The Ebony Odogaron is a subspecies that utilizes the Dragon element to enhance its attacks. Physically, the Ebony Odogaron looks the same as its normal Odogaron counterpart. However, its health and damage are significantly higher.

Try to aim for the head to take him down and remove the Dragon element from his attacks. Be sure to use your clutch claw to soften up the head if you are having a hard time aiming for the head break.

Bleeding and Astera Jerky

How to Beat - Ebony Odogaron 2.png

Be sure to carry an Astera Jerky immediately to cure this if you are getting targeted. However, if the Ebony Odogaron's attention is elsewhere. You can just couch for a few seconds to cure the bleeding without having to use an Astera Jerky.

Dealing With Dragonblight
