How to defeat Dragon in Octopath Traveler

As soon as the fight with Dragon begins, his weaknesses to Axe and Light will be blocked. By targeting the breaking point of the Dragon, you can unlock these weaknesses for a short while.

By using Swept Away and Sweeping Storm Skills, the dragon can become invisible for a while essentially teleporting them from the battlefield. By targeting its weak point, you will not only deal damage but also block his attacks from coming.

To protect yourself from getting damaged from physical attacks like Rendering Claw, it’s best to equip yourself with armor. Bringing armor also raises the Physical and elemental defense which are much needed while fighting Dragon.

In case your healer gets knocked out by one of the Dragon’s physical attacks, you must bring healing items like Healing Grapes along with you. All in all, the Dragon is not hard to fight and you can easily defeat him.
