Draugr Elite Battle Strategy

Isolate The Draugr Elite

When you encounter a Draugr Elite in the game, it is very important to isolate the Draugr Elite first before dealing with them. A Draugr Elite can deal a lot of damage and can one hit you if you are unprepared for this fight.

You can do this by either drawing its aggro and moving away from the group for killing all the other Draugrs first.

Parry their Attacks

The attacks of the Draugr Elite are a bit slow. This makes it easier to parry its attacks and leave it stunned for a long time. Since Draugrs in general get stunned for a long time if you parry their attacks, you can get multiple hits in before they recompose themselves.
