Ghostflame Dragon: Boss Fight Strategy

The Ghostflame Dragon is essentially a carbon copy of all the other dragon Boss Fights from the base game, so you'll be employing the same tactics to take this foe down too. Riding Torrent, get underneath it and target its two legs to start chipping away at its health bar — if you can apply Bleed damage, building this up will be very effective. Its breath applies Frostbite, so don't stay in its stream for too long.

The great thing about this encounter is you can call upon your Mimic Tear Ashes, so spawn them in and have them distract the boss while you focus on applying damage. If you're able to stagger it, it'll fall to the ground and you'll be able to land a heavy attack to the part of its head glowing orange.

Since you'll have faced so many other dragons up until now, you can use the same strategies as before; there's nothing really to differentiate the Ghostflame Dragon from the many before it. You'll have this one defeated in no time. You'll also encounter the same enemy in the Scadu Altus battling a group of soldiers, though the above strategy still applies.
