    Dat Red Dragon

    Post by Anonymous Proxy on Sat Mar 23, 2013 1:30 am

    =| So...what the ****? Why won't it fly away and let me get the Purple Flame Shield?

    Is it because I took the back route from across the bridge?

    Or does my game just hate me?

    That won't help me... I only have 18 dex. =\ I have heard that without the White Bow, it is obviously pointless to try and shoot the dragon down. -sigh-

    You can use either a shortbow or longbow, and a buttload of arrows to pelt him to death. Alternatively, just get Pure White World Tendency and return there, there won't be any dragons and you can grab your loot.

    The dragon stops moving after you pull the lever and opens the gate to the boss. It will only fly away if you try to kill it in 1-1, if you kill it in 1-2 it will be gone for good. You can also poison it with rotten arrows.

    First rule of Demons Souls: buy lots of arrows
    Second rule of Demons Souls: if at first you don't succeed, try poison

    Whoever told you that has no idea what they're talking about. Head to 1-2 with a Composite Bow upgraded to your liking and plenty of arrows. You can also kill it with spells, I believe, but that's a bit tougher.

    I just buy as many arrows as I can, pick up whatever that bow is on the bridge, and shoot it repeatedly. Works every time. Obviously I use an upgraded bow on NG+.

    Actually if you have a large enough weapon you can hit the dragon as it flies over the first tower. I have heard of people killing Doran in 1-1, then going to 1-2 and using Demonbrandt's R2's to kill the Dragon.

    I normally use a greatsword on his tail on the bridge in 1-2. I need a lot of grass and a lot more patience for that, though. Using a magic weapon and the crescent falchion from 4-1 helps a lot.

    I used:

    White Bow + 124 Holy Arrows

    I'm on NG+, btw.

    So for hitting his head for 30 damage for maybe 10min in 1-1. I finally got my stuff. =D

    which didn't help because I decided to not use them on Flamelurker.

    No problem for me either. Low level character (21). Dex 18, Strength 12 or something like that. Composite short bow+4. Took it out from the bridge last night with around 80 standard arrows.
