Bosses are unique and challenging Enemies that can be encountered all over the Lands Between. Great Enemy bosses can drop unique Spirit AshesWeaponsSpells, and other various Items.

Glintstone Dragon is the normal enemy form of this boss. Other bosses with the same basic attacks are Flying Dragon AgheelFlying Dragon GreyllDecaying Ekzykes, Glintstone Dragon Smarag, and Borealis the Freezing FogLesser Dragon is a normal enemy with the same basic attacks.

 

 Adula, a devourer of sorcerers, was bested by Ranni and subsequently swore a knightly oath to her Dark Moon.

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.

Additional Attacks & Counters

Attack Description Counter
Most attacks are the same as Flying Dragon Agheel, except that Adula's flame does Magic damage
Seeking Shards Rears back and summons a giant crystal in front of its mouth. After a moment, the crystal will burst, sending several shards that will home in on your location. They track very well, and are difficult to dodge effectively. Used every 50 seconds or so. Duck behind something in the environment to block the projectiles, or use Eternal Darkness to consume them
Adula's Moonblade Flies up and backwards, conjures a magical greatsword in its maw, then swoops down to slash it in a wide arc, loosing a wave of frost projectiles in its wake. Only used below 70% health and only once every 50 seconds Watch for its head to turn to its right and move back and to its left to dodge the main sweeping attack as well as many of the projectiles that fly out. Alternatively, if you are close enough, you can move under their body to avoid the sword entirely

Glintstone Dragon Adula Lore, Notes & Other Trivia

  • Adula was a devourer of sorcerers, but was defeated by Ranni, after which they swore an oath to serve her, which explains why it appears in places relating to Ranni’s questline.
  • The name Adula is a reference to the scientific name, Adularia, of the semi-precious gem moonstone and the mountain in the Swiss Alps, Adula, where moonstone was first found.

      This mf should not be hostile against player aligned with Ranni, the very fact that we are on that hill at all should tell the ****er we aren't someone you attack on sight. Fromsoft is great with little details like this, maybe they missed it or a heart for the dragon cult is more important then Ranni's pet.

        Really poor writing... Another dragon other than lansseax where we could have had a conversation with them because they both have no reason to fight us.. but noo, they go "oh dragon, make it an enemy!" Ugh...

          Those who say that adula attacks us even being on the same side.
          1. the first time you meet her the first thing we do is attack or defend ourselves, before we can end the conflict adula runs away disappearing, she never witnesses that later we join rannis and help her, she only knows It goes with the appreciation that we are enemies.
          2. The second time we meet her, we simply summarize what we started, and as all the souls are beaten, we end up either being devoured or being victorious, rannis and adula never have any kind of communication that guarantees that we are the same equipment.
          Everything can be interpreted as a misunderstanding,
          I would say that the ***** that makes everything misunderstood is the idiot rannis, who from the beginning treats the subordinates like stupid puppets.

              If this Dragon is under Ranni's service, them why is he trying to kill us when we should just work together? I would've loved to have a Dragon for a Bestie.

                  Fun Fact: If you somehow manage to kill this boss at Three Sisters, you will receive 12000 Runes for killing it and no Dragon Hearts. How did I find this out? The dragon glitched to where it was stuck on crystals and got lock into a falling animation where it ended up dying from Fall Damage.

                    This game is weird sometimes. Astel, a boss I spent 3 hours wiping on before coming up with a niche strategy, 80k runes. Adula, a boss I killed on my second try by whaling on her feet with Uchigatana until she fell over, 120k runes...

                        Hold on, it swore an oath to serve her? Why the hell'sit trying to attack us then? I swear, half the issues in these games could be solved with proper communication.

                          She has a moonlight greatsword, and it's distinctively a sorcery and not a power she got from eating sorcerers, therefor the reason she's the only character in Ranni's service that's hostile to us is we're basically cucking this dragon.

                            Gravity sorceries, specifically Rock Sling, work great when facing this boss on a magic build, since they deal physical damage and not magical damage. Just stand inside the safety of the cathedral and throw rocks at her head until she dies.

                            • It takes some time to fully aggro if you're damaging it from a distance, so you can pelt it with like 5 or 6 poison arrows before it even really starts to turn around. Considering the fact that this boss can nearly one shot endgame characters, you may want to utilize this information to cheese it with your ranged dot of choice. In my tests, I noted that the boss will detect you in stealth even if you're behind it. It'll aggro when you get within like 20 feet of its foot, so poison mist isn't really an option for this.

                                Can be cheesed by standing on the slanted pillar by the entrance of the cathedral, it will just walk back and forth by the wall, it can still hit you with the blade and some breath attacks but you can easily just back away when they are coming. Inflict it with rot or use Black Flame to take it down painlessly

                                  Cheese method: stood inside the building where the site of Grace is. Literally just shot arrows at him from the doorway. Occasionally he’ll do a flame attack so just walk behind the wall and hide and then come back out and shoot at his wings or whatever. Pop a gold foot before he dies for extra runes!

                                    if youre working a sorcerer build try cerulean hidden tear + meteorite and youll be able to take it down in one go. first youll have to run past it into the cathedral and start the fight from behind so that you can cast early enough to knock it down before you get hit

                                              If you lose the dragon after fighting it near Ranni’s Rise, look west of the Village of Albinaurics grace site. You’ll find the dragon curled up under two towering stones. If you zoom in on the map, the stones look like two sticks leaning towards each other to form an incomplete triangle. Sorry If my post is wordy, English is not my first language. I’ve been told I write very wordy.

                                                  • Did him at level 100, don't know if I' m overleveled but it sure didn't feel like it. Got me destroyed 10+ times. Finally went in with full Radahn's, magic negation buffs + horseback fighting buff. Mimic ashes too. Kept meleeing his feet, switching between them. He didn't have the chance to cast that lethal ice beam of his, nor anything else actually, he was just constantly trying to stomp me. At 5% of his health he knocked me down. RNG helped, got back up unharmed, finished him off. Everything else failed miserably. As usual in this game, storming in and being aggressive paid off.

                                                            I will say they must have buffed this final version of the boss from 1.03 he is much harder and has much higher magic reduction. It at least seems it was far easier on another character in the previous version with a simular build and weapons. But there have been several enemies that have seemed to be boosted in 1.04 that aren't in the notes.

                                                                It's mostly up in the air shooting down insta-kill magic flames and running away, then when you get close enough to hit, it just repeats the same cheap tactic. It's like it rage quit the fair fight on the ground, only to then act like a cheap babby when it comes to the retribution round. I swear Elden Ring has a big push for you to use magic compared to other titles.

                                                                  Easy Cheese as a caster. Go inside the Cathedral and hug the front wall. Send out Kristoff Spirit Ashes (Cold damage does almost nothing to him) and just go brew some coffee. I peeked out of the corner every so often, throw rocks and hid again.

                                                                  Yeah its not my proudest moment, but I can now stab stuff with a frosty greatsword to make me feel better.

                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                    This damn big lizard's fire breath (well... Glintstone Breath) seems to be glitched. More than once, it breath the fire and I have no difficulty moving ahead of the breath, but then as I'm getting next to its wings and it stopped its breath, some of the fire breath comes back and hit me from behind. (It literally went in the opposite direction from where it was shooting it.) From what I have seen, the fire breath particles "bounce" off certain tall surface (like rocks) and returns toward me while being barely visible anymore. It's kinda hard to explain, but the worse part of it is that this glitch kills me in 0.1 sec. (It drop my health to 0 and pushes me off Torrent instantly.)

                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                        This fight is infuriating as melee. It just keeps running the **** away from you AND does damage at the same time. I spend my time running around after the thing to catch up to it and when I do, it flies off again and sets everything on fire on the way. One time it kept flying off and landing then flying off so many times that it despawned itself. I couldn't even catch up to it.

                                                                        Cheesing this ****er with no remorse. Rock Sling all the way.

                                                                        • For anyone (particularly melee) that prefers not to fight on horseback, cold godskin peeler with bloodhound step worked well for me.

                                                                          Focused legs and bloodhound stepped to other leg when the one I was hitting raised to stomp. Watch for tail whip.

                                                                          Double step through his flying sword attack to increase odds of dodging blade and follow up mist. Hammering bloodhound step to close gap especially beneficial if he's going to flame attack while on ground so you have stamina to chain hits while he won't react. Winged sword insignia boosted this.

                                                                          Wait for crystal magic attack to pop and then wait until projectiles are honing in on you then roll for iframe protection.

                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                            • Anonymous

They break through any shield, they hit and such different times that it's nearly impossible to roll through them, and even hiding behind something doesn't work because the shards that went straight in the air will come down on your head like a mortar. Absolute RNG move as to if you live or die. It's just a Vigor check. I hate it so, so much.

                                                                              • Anonymous

I go to the top, Talk to Ranni the witch, talk to her friends, then all of a sudden, it pops up that I slew a Great enemy, and I got 12k souls, but no dragon heart, and I go back outside and the dragon is gone. At first it wouldn’t let me leave, so I go back to talk to Ranni, but I went too fast and fell off a cliff.

                                                                                I didn’t screw myself out of a dragon heart did I?

                                                                                  Cheap fight, isn't satisfying to defeat either.

Would make sense if Adula was formerly in her service and is still guarding that place. Ranni placing a guardian dragon outside also explains why Seluvis only visits an apparition

                                                                                      This is blue cheese, though, in sense it is a cheesy, safe and slightly stinky way to deal with magnificent magical dragon.

If you are a Mage INT Build like i did against this Dragon , try using Rock Sling its one of the only Sorcery Spells that deals great damage and also staggers this Dragon. ( Other Glintstone Sorceries will be extremely not that damage dealing since Adula has the most Magic Defense along with Placidusax... ). Otherwise even Comet Azur Combo doesn't work that well... If you'd want you could also Mist this dragon to Death with the Night Maiden Mist for a cheesy approach... Altho if it wasn't for my Spirit Summon this would've been a pretty tough Boss for being just a regular dragon... I also found that Lightning attacks specialy from a decently upgraded Seal could deal more damage than Sorcery Spells unless if its Gravity Spells like Rock Sling. ( Rock Sling might be slow yes , but if you Land the 3 Rocks onto his Head it'll deal Massive damage and can stagger this nasty Dragon easily... So try saving up all your FP Flasks and FP mostly for Rock Slings , Meteorites , or Weapon Skills otherwise you need alot of Hits in order to kill this dragon with Glintstone Pebbles or even Comet ). Other not soo bad strategy is you carefully Aim Loretta's Greatbow Spell on its Head... That's the only Spell that deals significant damage towards the head otherwise you will deal minimal damage if struck on the body parts of this dragon. Goodluck this Dragon is a must Kill for all Mage Builds as Adula's Moonblade outshines Carian Greatsword or even Carian Piercer.

                                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                                            • Anonymous

Just run far enough into the cathedral and shoot him with poison and blood arrows (or just regular arrows but will take much longer) if you stand back far enough he can't hurt you with any attacks. Just move around the ruble in the cathedral when he flies and stay out of reach of his frost attack. Super easy fight

                                                                                                • I was wondering, if this guy's name is translated wrong. We have Glintsone Dragon Smarag, quite obviously a reference to a name for emerald (in older English or any of the other many languages still using it) with it's emerald scales. I think Adula in meant to follow the same pattern, it's name being Azura, in reference to it's azure scales. The mistranslation would make sense if we think about the Japanese syllables it would be written with: アヅラ, which could be romanized as Azura, Azula, Adura or Adula.

                                                                                                  • Anonymous

If you want to, just kill it later. You don't have to chase it away, it'll show up at the Moonlight Altar anyway (but you can just run past it if you want to)

Will have to finish the route to see if it shows up again or if I lost out on its blade and 3 hearts as listed above.

I thought it despawned on me. Glad to know it was an intended reaction meaning I got no bugs so far

                                                                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                                                                I feel like FromSoft should maybe have made it a tad more obvious that Adula dissappearing mid-fight is intended behavior. I genuinely thought he just despawned on me due to a bug and I'd be losing out on all the rewards.

                                                                                                                                Like, they could have just sent a little message in the same way it does when Invaders arrive "Glintstone Dragon Adula has fled the fight" or something like that.

Also this guy has two added moves, one of them can one shot you at 40 VIG and the other has homing capabilities that humans won't be able to invent in the next 100 years.
