However, it is important to keep in mind that Dragon Aevis should not be handled roughly. It is vital to have a sound strategy in order to combat this formidable foe because he can cause issues for anyone who attempts to engage him. While Dragon Aevis lacks special skills, unlike other bosses in the game, this does not imply that he is any less formidable because his basic attacks are still deadly.

How to defeat Dragon Aevis

During the fight, the Dragon Aevis has excellent mobility and quick movements, regularly leaping and changing positions. Despite its amazing speed, its strikes follow a predictable pattern, making Precision Dodge an easy way to avoid them. It's critical to stay alert whenever the dragon adjusts its posture, as this signifies an impending attack. Maintain your finger on the dodge button, ready to react quickly if such motions are detected.

When the dragon leaps away from you, take advantage of the opportunity to use the Lunge ability to catch the creature off guard. Follow up with a barrage of combinations to take advantage of its temporary vulnerability. Once you've successfully broken the dragon's will, use the devastating combination of Rising Flames and Scarlet Cyclone to maximize your damage output while taking advantage of the dragon's weakened position.

If you prefer to keep a distance from the dragon, be prepared for its fireball onslaught. Utilize ranged attacks, as they prove highly effective against this boss due to its relatively low Health Points (HP). By maintaining distance and strategically launching ranged assaults, you can gradually chip away at its health. Furthermore, as you gain the Burning Blade skill for Clive, use it to stun the dragon. This talent takes time to fuel up yet has tremendous power. Use it judiciously, then fire a flurry of basic attacks and additional Phoenix Abilities to unleash a devastating onslaught on the dragon, dealing huge damage.

Overall, this battle should be swift, provided you effectively stagger the dragon and successfully land all your attacks. By combining precision dodging, exploiting its attack patterns, and capitalizing on moments of vulnerability, you can rapidly deplete its HP and emerge triumphant. Stay vigilant, adapt to the dragon's movements, and unleash your arsenal of skills to secure victory.
