God of War: Ragnarok features a variety of terrifying bosses that put up amazing fights. You will come across many bosses while progressing through the main storyline, putting your skills to the test.

One of these bosses is the Dreki. This is a special – although not so tough – boss that you encounter twice in the main story.

In this guide, we will break down the fight against Dreki, and show you how to beat them in God of War: Ragnarok.

Where to find Dreki

You will actually encounter Dreki at two different points in the main storyline. The second encounter will pit two Drekis against you.

First Encounter

Your first encounter with Dreki is during The Quest For Tyr – specifically around the swamp near the Forge (Svartalfheim).

Second Encounter

Your second encounter with Dreki will be during the Creatures of Prophecy quest while returning to Frey’s Camp in Vanaheim. This time though, you will have to fight two Drekis at once.

Best strategy to defeat Dreki

Keeping in mind the attack pattern and counters to all of the attacks mentioned above, half of our job defeating the Dreki is already done. The encounters with Dreki are fairly easy fights as they do not have much of a large health pool.

There are just a few more things to keep in mind while fighting the Dreki.

The recommended level for the first encounter against the Dreki is Level 1 for all difficulties, while it’s Level 5 for the second encounter.

Moreover, you should use the Leviathan Axe more often against the Dreki. Their attack speed is already fairly average, and with the Leviathan Axe’s Frost Awaken debuff, they are slowed down further, giving you more opportunities to close in on the beast.

You can also use the same debuff and throw your axe toward the acid balls to interrupt Dreki. Doing this will build your stun meter faster.

Furthermore, you should use your Spartan Rage as a last resort – only when you’re health is minimal. This time will often come if you don’t manage to keep out of the Dreki’s lingering acid pools.

Using this mode will allow Kratos to land more powerful attacks, restoring HP back with each successful hit and getting back into the battle with sufficient HP.

As for the second encounter with the twin Dreki, the general strategy remains the same, except this time, it would be best to focus on one Dreki at a time, eliminate it, and then move on to the next one.
