How to Defeat Umber Drague in Xenoblade Chronicles 3
It is recommended to take Isurd in your party when you go to fight Umber Drague as Isurd is probably one of the best healers you will have up until this point in Xenoblade 3 also take at least two tanks with you.
Once you are up against the gargantuan Dragon knowns as the Umber Drague, it won’t be possible to position your party members around the back of the monster because it will only waste time to go around the huge monster.
Don’t waste time on positioning, rather, focus on attacking. The auto-attacks are slow and can easily be avoided by simply looking out for them. Crushing Bite is the most dangerous attack as it will nearly kill the target so make sure to have heals ready.
Heat Scream will boost its Critical Rate so be sure to have the backup ready. Mighty Gale is also there but it is not something to worry about much as it only deals negligible amounts of damage and a little knockback.
It is not recommended to take any class that relies on positioning, as maneuvering around the monster is not going to be an easy task and will waste a lot of time. Chain Attacks are the best way to easily and efficiently take down the Umber Drague in Xenoblade 3
