List of Contents
|note||We highly recommend bringing a lot of arrows if you wish to take down the remaining Dragon in Boletaria.|
|①||At the start of 1-4. you'll encounter crossbowmen standing atop a corpse of a Dragon. You can hit them with ranged spells or weapons.|
Past them, you'll encounter 3 Black Phantoms. Two of them drops a weapon reminiscent of the second and third bosses you fought in Boletaria.
It is safer to fight them one by one by luring them with a ranged attack. They also do not respawn so investing extra resources to dispatch them is highly recommended,
|③||After dispatching the 3 Black Phantoms, turn left and follow the path. There are some Red Eyes knights, Imperial Spies, and some soldiers. Keep your guard up and dispatch them one by one.|
|④||After reaching the top, there will be a shortcut with the Blue Dragon blocking your path by using its breath attack. You can snipe at it from here, but it can't die yet. Taking its HP down low enough will cause it to leave. You'll be able to kill the dragon in a later area if you do so wish.|
Pass through the bridge and climb the next area to reach the Blue Dragon's last stand. Time your sprint when the Blue Dragon uses its breath attack. From beneath it, you can continue sniping it to take it down for good.
If you saved Biorr in 1-3, he'll be providing extra fire towards the Blue Dragon.
|⑦||After getting through the Blue Dragon, make your way to the elevator and defeat the Black Phantom that's blocking your path.|
|⑧||After riding the elevator, prepare for the final Archdemon.|
The three Black Phantoms do not respawn. This makes killing even one of them extremely worth while. If you're having trouble defeating the three of them, you can lure them out one by one by using ranged attacks.
It is impossible to kill the Drake right now, but reducing its health will allow you to proceed. Using a bow and bringing a lot of arrows is the key to making the Blue Dragon retreat.
While killing the Blue Dragon will be easier if you can get beneath it, you can also snipe it from one of the pillars to your right at a safer distance. The further away you are the less damage you do but the safer you will be.

|Rune Sword, Rune Shield|
|Ring of Great Strength, Brushwood Set, Large Brushwood Shield|
If you saved him by unlocking his cell near the Tower Knight's Archstone, he'll show up to provide supporting fire against the Blue Dragon.
He uses a heavy shield and a mace. It is possible to get behind him for a backstab due to his slow attacks.
Metas is quite speedy so you'll want to rely on shielding to punish his attacks. Using a Riposte is also possible but can be quite difficult to land due to his speed.
Despite her name, she can switch to a Scimitar when you approach her. The key to this fight is to shield against her attacks while keeping close. If you get hurt, you can hide behind one of the pillars nearby to regenerate your health.
