Flying Dragon Greyll Combat information

Negations (or Absorptions)

The negation numbers are the % of your damage that gets blocked. For example, if a negation is 60, 40% of that damage by that type will go through and 60% will be negated. Bigger number = less damage. A negation of 100 means no damage goes through, and a negation of -100 mean the enemy takes 2x damage from that source. 0 means damage goes pretty much as is.

Resistances

The resistance numbers are the buildup amount to trigger it. For example, if a resistance is 100 you must deal 100 points of the given buildup to trigger it. Note that these go down over time, and increase each time the effect procs. The values after the "/"s indicate the increased resistances after each successive proc.

Additional Fight Strategy

  • Stand on the elevated areas overlooking the bridge and snipe Greyll from afar. Its breath attacks don't track upwards very well so you can attack safely with minimal fear of reprisal.
  • Use Serpentbone Arrows or Rotbone Arrows and stand on one end of the bridge, just barely close enough so that your arrows can reach. If Greyll starts using a long-range fire attack, run away and come back once it's settled down

      Gotta be honest, most medium size and big size dragons are a joke when you are on horse back. I just go under his pp and spam basic attack with the occasional dodge of the foot stomp.

      • Anonymous

        This was a toughie. What finally cinched it for me (Dragon Incantation build) was first summoning a helpful spirit ash (I went with Kaeden Mercenary), then basically playing chicken with Greyll running straight at him, slipping behind him as he started his huge fire breath attack, and blasting him with Rotten Breath from behind. Idk if it's a bug or what, but trying to do ranged attacks from the nearby hill was out of my range for all of the incantations I currently have in my playbook.

          So uh, was doing a sorcery run and tried killing him early, and he got stuck middair near the grace and died after a few sec. Made things faster, because im SURe I had enough fp :p

          • Anonymous

            Was able to kill him without too much trouble by summoning Latenna just to the east 9f bridge, right in front of the Farum Great bridge grace. Equipped flamedrake talisman, and with 25 vigor I would survive the flame breath, just barely, when he managed to hit me.

            Let Latenna blast him, while I was on horseback swiping at legs and wing when given an opening, and then riding quickly away when he would fly up, or rear up for an attack.

              While I was fighting him he managed to get stuck on the geometry of the bridge and a tree mid flying/jumping animation, and after ten seconds of floating, he just died without me doing anything.

                Defeated this guy at level 60-65 using Flame of the Redmanes on a Heavy Pike, with Latenna making sure his poise doesn’t regen. Had to tank some hits, Flamedrake Talisman helped a lot. Good way to get 80k runes.

                • Anonymous

                  Beat this guy at lvl 38 - flamedrake talisman and flame fortification incantation are must haves. Spam heavy attacks on his head and riposte - making sure to dodge his attacks. I used gold halberd which has amazing range.

                  • go toward his left. upon seeing the breath that goes left to right (or right to left from your perspective), quickly switch to his right and get 3-5 hits in before dashing away so as to avoid his tail. if he does the super long straight breath either run away or attempt to get under him if you’re close enough. takes forever but it’s consistent and effective

                      So this guy appears to be a direct decendant of Greyoll, given the name similarities and proximity. Whats interesting is that he is guarding Gurranq and the Farum Great-Bridge. Its clear that color indicates a dragons' age so we know Greyll is recently matured (evidenced by the fact that the babies around Greyoll are brown, whereas she, the oldest of them all is pure white.) It makes me wonder if Greyoll had him guard their links to Farum Azula seeing as that is their safe haven. We know the dragons have some form of intelligence as Ekzykes hunted those that partook in Dragon Communion for revenge against those killing his kind, and Adula was smart enough to swear an allegience to Ranni and the Carian Royals, and learn magic

                        Just a renamed agheel in a worse arena at least the other dragons have unique breath attacks this guy has nothing unique

                          I was able to beat him by luring him to an area between the bridge and the site of grace. He got stuck and started doing the same walking movements over and over. He wasn’t even breathing fire or flying. So I went up on the cliff right above him and used a longbow+14 and regular arrows. Lock your aim on his head and use the mighty shot. I was able to get 422 damage with every arrow. Sometimes I was able to shoot him in the eye for over 500 damage.

                            i personally think it would have been better to replace him with the black blade kindred that guards gurranq.And keep an ancient dragon at the kindred's place like in the trailer.

                              A little bit disappointed that this Dragon doesn’t have a special power. Maybe an upgraded or special Dragonmaw spell or something?

                                Not even true , you can easily cheese him with the scarlet rotten breath and hiding behind the bridge wall , he'll walk back and forth, allowing you to rot him again , along with Grayoll and Radahn it's easy early runes

                                  This is all that it takes to kill him. Just get the aggro, wait for him on the hill above the site of grace; he will get stuck there giving you the opportunity to put countless headshots in. If you don't mess up with the shots you should be able to kill him this way. I had to deal the finishing blow myself because I messed up a little and I didn't have cerulean flasks allocated, so I had to make do so to speak

                                          Easy way is using rotten breath incantation and run away till rot ends. rot deals about 2000 damage, so 2 times and some arrows do the trick.

                                              Idk where they're getting the health values for this but it has WAY more than 2200 health. About 800 barely did more than a sixth of the bar.

                                              • If you fight Flying Dragons by performing horseback archery, then this is basically Agheel v2. More health, higher damage, but same deal.
                                                Equip a good bow, plenty of arrows, Arrow's Sting Talisman + Arrow's Reach Talisman. Keep your distance, watch your footing so you won't fall off the map. Bait him off the bridge. Shoot the head when he's approaching you in between attacks, shoot the body when he doesn't. Won't even take too long.

                                                  Bleed resistance seems to be incorrect. It should be closer to 400~500. Bled a single time during the entire fight and I was able to thoroughly keep pressure on it and get about 11-14 hits in power stance both bleed off at same time on a few occasions.

                                                      It's harder for him to run away than the other dragons, so this is a good chance for melee fighters to practice posture breaking dragons. Bonk him on the head, and stab him in the eye. Repeat until you get runes.

                                                        This was the easiest boss in the game, he took flight to crash on me, missed the bridge and died of fall damage.

                                                          If you're underleveled or just hate the idea of fighting on the bridge you can cheese the encounter by going to the cliffs next to the "Farum Greatbridge" Site of Grace and using any form of range attack that arcs over the rocks so that you're completely safe from any of the breath attacks.

                                                          The fastest and most reliable combination I found was to use any type of bow to get Poison/Scarlet Rot to tick while repeatedly casting Rock Sling. After 3-5 casts Greyll will usually fall down as some of the rocks hit the head which lets you reapply any status effects without having to worry about the breath attacks.

                                                          Consider allocating all your flask charges into Cerulean Tear as you will be casting a lot of Rock Sling and healing isn't needed at all as you will most likely instantly die in the case that you get hit by any of the breaths.

                                                          If you're able to cast Comet Azur then it's possible to nuke the boss from the same cliffs at a slightly different angle near the trees every time it tries to lunge towards you. Alternatively you can just go to the bridge, use a tanky summon near any of the roots and jump on the braziers to cast. This way the boss will usually waste a few breaths on the summon when the encounter starts and with good luck the roots will terrain block the breaths which gives you even more time to channel spells.

                                                            I ran underneath and rotted it with rotten breath. I then ran back to the graced side and got on the rocks. There is a spot where you can hide behind and not get hit by the fire. I spammed meteorite and chugged cerulean tears. I had either the talisman to boost damage at full health or the sorcery booster one. By ran I meant rode torrent.

                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                              • Anonymous

Took three runs of poison and a couple pot shots. Just make sure to hide far enough away to out range his flame breath as it reaches pretty far into the rocks.

                                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                                    You can easily beat him by staying close-mid range so he only uses the stomp move, just need to watch out for the breath fire AOE and the Flying Stomp, other than that, his head is always close to the ground, so just spam any quick attack to break his stagger.
                                                                                    I used the Moonlight Veil Art and completely mowed him hitless after trying the Meteorite on him and missing completely, so it's very doable.

                                                                                    • Anonymous

You shouldn't need but 1 crimson. Recommend having highest magic attack you can build yourself up to. From starting point use torrent and bait him to the opposite side. Get on the dead dragon heap to the left and stand on top. Find a good spot that his fire can't hit you and spam Rock Sling. You may need to test a few spots first. This could probably work with BOWS too. Happy hunting!

And you can hit the very tip of his tail without starting the fight because is so long. The tail is located near the Fort faroth bonfire.

Easy to reapply as well because once you get close enough with torrent he does the big flame attack which was punishable

                                                                                              • Anonymous

I advise that you either bring alot of cerulean flasks or arrows to this fight as it will take awhile.
