Path of Destruction is another favor for you to complete in God of War: Ragnarok. This side quest involves slaying a dragon mini-boss, for which you will be rewarded with Dragon Tooth and Dragon Claws to craft the Dragon Scaled armor set.

If you are struggling to somehow figure out how to finish Path of Destruction in God of War Ragnarok and defeat the drake that awaits you at its end, allow us to explain this favor in its entirety.

How to start Path of Destruction

You first need to complete the Return of the River favor. Once the area is flooded, you need to follow the giant footprints into the Jungle of Vanaheim. Path of Destruction will begin automatically as soon as you crawl through the gap in the wall.

How to complete Path of Destruction

Once the quest starts, you will see a well-type structure that will take you to the lower level. It is a cage that you will use to lure Drakes.

Drop inside it and hit the rotatable wooden structure with your axe. It will lift the cage, and you have to hit the circle right below it to hold it.

Now move out and circle in the area, and you will see two Drake there. When these Drakes start following, you take them to the cage and try to lock them inside.

You can hit the circle again to lower the cage. Once at least one of the Drakes is caged pull, the chain and your first objective will be complete.

How to defeat Slag Horn

The Slag Horn appears to be a big enemy, but it is relatively easy to beat. Though it can deal a lot of damage, its weakness lies in its attacks since the Slag Horn boss consists of a long charge attack time. 

Despite that, this boss is regarded as a difficult competitor for its adversaries since it is capable of possessing both blockable and unblockable attacks in its arsenal.

Moreover, Slag Horn will also leap towards you to bite you and hit you with horns. So, the best strategy to beat it includes using a spear for attacks.

You should try to maintain distance and attack as much as possible. However, you can also use a sword in both hands and deal extra damage.

Pay attention to its tail, and when the Slag Horn tries to turn, get away as quickly as possible to dodge it. When the boss’s Health bar drops to 50%, it starts attacking in a rapid motion with succession, dodging is the only option to avoid damage in this situation.

Also, after dodging the attacks, you must aim for the legs as most of the attacks of the Slag Horn consist of frontal motion. Therefore, attacking the legs will make it defenseless at times, knocking it to the ground at zero health, thus ending the slag horn boss fight.
