How To Find Dragonlord Placidusax
So as we know Elden Ring is a huge game with so many deadly main and optional bosses whom you have to find and kill and Dragonlord Placidusax is one of such optional bosses whom you have to kill in order to get a huge amount of runes and some amazing gears.
We have to find the Crumbling Farum Azula where we will find the dragonlord, but without reaching a certain level we won’t be able to find him so first we need to reach the level required. So get to the Giants Site of Grace in the Mountaintops of the Giants and rest there and talk to Melina about Erdtree and you will be teleported to the bridge located near Crumbling Farum Azula.
If you have been to Crumbling Farum Azula before then you can directly reach the site of grace otherwise you have to face different enemies and bosses in between. Then rest at the site of grace and then go through the Dragon Temple and outside the front.
Get outside the temple and look for the floating rocks and now take the rocks to the bottom where you will find a platform full of graves. Now simply walk to the grave and use the action button and you will be in front of the dragonlord after a simple cutscene.
How To Kill Dragonlord Placidusax
No second health or phase transition which means you just have to kill him in a simple way, but as you started depleting his health he will gain some new attacks that have the ability to shake you off. Like he will start teleport and while he was not visible he will attack you with deadly lighting claws and in the second one, he will throw a beam all over the arena many times that is quite easy to dodge but at the same time because of its reach you can be caught to and lose you health.
So that’s about his attacks now let’s how can we attack him and get victory over him.
- So when you bring his health down to a certain level he will start teleporting by turning into dust and then reappear in some other place and give you great attacks. But if you hear the sound very carefully then you will get to know that there is a rustling wind followed by a roar so with help of sound you can track him and can escape from hit lethal attacks.
- Hitting his head will deplete his health faster but at the same time you will get exposed in front of you and he can easily attack with his claw or with his breath. So better you should be at his tail side, he will still try to hit you with his tail but that’s not very dangerous and you can hit him from there that will take a bit of time but at least it is a safe strategy.
- Then he can perform a beam-breath attack that will cover the whole arena with deadly beams, but you must not try to go far from him as you have to dodge the attack several times and changes are you got hit by the beam. Rather you should roll towards the boss as you can dodge the beam there and at the same time you will get a safe place to hit the boss.
