Glintstone Dragon Smarag 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

The Best Tips for Glintstone Dragon Smarag:

  • Use Banished Knight Oleg for his high defense and health to distract the dragon
  • Smarag has very high Magic resistance, so Intelligence builds should use spells like Rock Sling that deal physical damage.
  • Meteorite of Astel with Cerulean Hidden Tear can easily trivialize the fight by raining meteorites that deal physical damage.
  • Wear armor with high Magic and Physical resistance, like the Banished Knight Set
  • As this is an outdoors encounter, you can mount Torrent to quickly evade Smarag's breath attacks.  Melee users are encouraged to use Torrent to quickly get back into melee range when Smarag flies away.

 

Additional Attacks & Counters

Attack Description Counter
Most attacks are the same as Flying Dragon Agheel, except that Smarag's flame does Magic damage
Glintstone
Cometshard
Raises its head, gathering magical power in its mouth, then fires a fast magic projectile at the player. Most likely used when you're far away. This attack is usually repeated twice. Sprint diagonally towards Smarag. You can charge up a heavy attack to hit its snout when it dips after the attack

      you fight him mostly on the water, or at least i did, which means the potential to hit multiple of his hitboxes with lightning attacks. Its one of the only reasons i can think for the funky maths when i killed him. 2 full AoW with a +5 dragon halberd and minimum strength. Even in optimal conditions it shouldnt have insta killed him.

        Are there any puzzles near here? I've seen people suggest that the bright blue flowers around his lair usually indicate a nearby puzzle, but I think they might just be thaumovores.

          Just got Edgar's halberd. put on the lance talisman and it was a cakewalk. Had to equip my best anti-magic set tho.

            I kinda cheesed him with black flame from range cause all his attacks one shot me, what's the correct way to beat him?

            • Anonymous

              IF you have the Sword of Night and Flame, this is a trivially easy fight, as the dragon appears to be EXCEPTIONALLY vulnerable to the Sweeping Fire sword skill - I have no idea why - but it took off CHUNKS of health. I'm currently level 102 but given the amount of damage it did, I imagine a lower level could kill this fairly quickly - just be wary of the range and wear your finest Fire resistant stuff!

                I really wish us dragon communion folk could get that dragon comet move instead of named glinstone breath attack.

                  I ran Smaragh a couple of times on NG+1. When I say a couple of times, it was because first time out, I took Tiche, but he just stood there, getting burned. I then tested it with my Mimic, same again. In the end I had to deal with him myself, but this seems like a bug to me

                    Ez mode for mages…put Latenna the archer on the rock formation to the dragons right about halfway up. You stand a little further down. Blast it with Rock Sling over and over while the spirit fills the dragon with arrows. I never got hit once and it was either stun locked, collapsed, or trying to figure out what day it was.

                      Any bleed weapon trivializes this fight. Used a blood Uchigatana +7 and only took a single hit of damage because the boss died so quickly.

                          "Smarag" is the first part of "Smaragdina", which is a part of the word "Tabula Smaragdina", aka the Emerald Tablet, the mythical text for alchemical knowledge.

                          • I spent an hour or so trying to fight him melee while mounted, but it was a pain trying to strike the dragon's head. However, I found the Black Flame spell to be highly effective. Basically, you still treat the fight as if you are melee, keeping close as to force the dragon to stomp around, but instead of trying to double jump and swipe at the head, simply charge up Black Flame and you get great autotargeted damage straight to the dome piece. Not only does each fully charged cast take off about 5% health, but after about 5 or 6 strikes, it will stagger her. With only 20 in Faith and a +3 Finger Seal, I downed her in like 2 minutes.

                              Climb behind him and spell the Albinauric archer. She won't move but can't get hit either. She will continuously getting the aggro while you can ride away, take a patio and go back to hit the leg... Not proud of it, but the game keep ****ing me soooo.....

                                Incredibly weak to lighting damage. try throwing a few bolts at his head and watch the health just drop off.

                                    Climb on the rocks behind him and there's a ledge he doesn't hit you and take poison arrows is quick and practical! Shooting poison arrows he dies fast and you take no damage!

                                      So just beat him. But the Dragon spells are not showing at the Church of dragon communion. I’ve beaten three so far and only one set of dragon spells have shown up. Am I missing something?

                                        If you climb up the rock behind him there’s a ledge about 2/3 of the way up where none of his attacks can hit you. Then chuck incantations at his head until dead!

                                          I died to him once so decided to continue exploring & come for him later , only to find out he disappeared ? is it for good ? or did he really actually spawn in different spot like Glintstone Dragon Adula ? the wiki should mention that

                                            This was my second dragon fight and man they tend to glitch, at least for me on ps4?

                                            First dragon at the lake glitched at 5%, disappeared and then suddenly appeared behind me backwards mid tail attack which killed me.

                                            Next fight he went airborne and then his health went 100 to 0 all by itself and I got credit for killing him without even having a chance to fight.

                                            Then with this glintstone one he just straight vanished at about 70% hp. No kill credit but he's gone (checked whole area) and the summoning zone is now a no summon zone. Resting at the graces nearby did not bring him back.

                                            No souls or heart but I guess he's gone now so that's good? Hoping my next dragon fight goes more smoothly.

                                              Anyone figured out why are there a bunch of scarabs around him? They are useless so I think its because the dragon is magic so it attracts the scarabs?

                                                Some people are making reference to 'Smarag' being similar to the Hungarian 'smaragd,' but personally I think it's just a poorly veiled ripoff of Smaug from The Hobbit. And George RR Martin is usually so creative with character names...

Just pop out after he attacks and use the cover to take his attacks. His flying breath attack got me once but the next try I hid behind the rocks a bit deeper

                                                                  • Anonymous

A few others did recommend bleed but those are with the talisman and weapon art bleed rate buffs most likely as this dragon, unlike the others, is far more resilient to bleed than usual. I can bleed other dragons in less than half the hits it takes this dragon with identical setup. I actually ran to several, except the first in the starting region since it is dead, to test and they all bleed 2-3x for the single time this one bleed. This one can definitely be killed with bleed, though, which is useful against its high health but other builds are probably going to be better unless you run an extra focused bleed configuration or coop bleed.

                                                                    • Anonymous

Tested at 55% fire resistance on a SL1 and every flame/spell attack 1-shot me. Tested with slightly weaker 53% magic resistance and survived with about 30% health left from attacks.

                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                        • Anonymous

Like, I understand that they're an amazing spectacle but after fighting the first one at Agheel Lake, this one doesn't offer nearly anything more interesting visually or mechanically. And it's simply a chore to go through. There just isn't anything interesting in chipping away a massive health bar over and over again while just running in random directions hoping to dodge a slew of one-shot attacks over and over again.

                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                              • When trying to find the Glintstone Key and the Academy. You'll end up finding a travel gate that takes you right in front of the Academy and then there's a corpse with a small map. The map hints to you that there's gonna be a meeting place to pick up a key. This game is so easy though...the Glintstone Key is on a corpse literally right behind the Glintstone Dragon. No need to fight most of these dragons unless you need their drops. Elden Ring could have easily been FromSofts crazy MMO game with World Bosses and Cosmetic Lottery stuff.

Summon wolves to distract the dragon while you throw rocks directly into his face. Cast Rock Sling once when he goes down for a crit, then take the critical attack. Repeat until dead.

Need to dash your horse as soon as he's dropping on you and keep a huge distance from flames. I'd almost try to unmount under him and re-mount for flames. Make sure to always fight him in an open area or at least be ready to dash out since he brings you many times in tight corners.

                                                                                      • There is a third nameless glintstone dragon to the West of Moonlight Altar (not Adula which is directly in front of it). Defeating it drop a Dragon Heart and nothing else.

It was kinda nice to notice how my previous FS-experience helped me in knowing that in all their games, dragons are weak to lightning hah.

                                                                                                I didn’t trade the first dragon heart for the scarlet rot incarnation, so I managed to take down 70% of health with 80 black key bolts (I twinked it with another player for the test purpose) and didn’t succeed to inflict scarlet rot status, so I just switched to regular bolts to finish up.

Didn’t drop any runes or heart… one way to win I guess?

                                                                                                    I used longbow + 99 arrow + 50 feather bone arrow to kill him... Around 40 mins longest.

                                                                                                        Stay on Torrent, it's the only way you're going to dodge all those attacks. If three casts of Rock Sling fully hit his head, he'll be staggered and you can go for a critical attack. When first approaching, get close enough while he's sleeping that you can cast Rock Sling twice, wait a second or two, then cast again. The third one will hit while he's roaring and knock him down. After you get the critical attack, hop back on Torrent IMMEDIATELY and get some distance. Don't get behind him, his tail swing is almost impossible to dodge up close. Unless you've made some serious investments into health, assume that every attack will OHKO you. Play it safe, don't be afraid to back up a lot to dodge his fire. Don't worry too much about running out of mana, his attacks often deal collateral damage to all the scarabs flying around and you'll get charges back. You're extremely vulnerable while charging up Rock Sling, so time it between attacks. His projectile attack is easy to dodge as long as you aren't casting.
                                                                                                        Side Note: A magic damage Misericorde is excellent for casters to have specifically for critical attacks/backstabs.

Environment is sometimes annoying and it can take a long time (Uchigatana +13) and took probably around 15 min without ranged/magic and on foot). I have to say though that I love fighting dragons in this game. Agheel is the perfect "tutorial dragon" as every other dragon seems just to copy his moveset and then some

There are a large number of the blue tear scarabs around, so you don't have to have specced to hard into it before hand, as long as you can huck something with magic.

                                                                                                                    Do it on horse. Run horse between wings, and through feet then turn around when you get to the opposite wing. The wings and feet both take damage, allowing 4 hits on each pass with R1, or a full charged R2 (starting the charge at first wing since it will take damage while being dragged on ground) +R1. When the dragon is awakening, this can be done getting the dragon down 25-50% before it takes flight. The key here is to stay on it's feet/wing, and not go to its tail where it will do its swipe until it actually takes flight. Once it takes flight, run direction of tail/opposite direction that it flies to. When it casts fireball/fire spread you can generally start heading to his flank and avoid the spells and do the wing to wing attack pattern again before the next takeoff.

                                                                                                                    • Anonymous

I was getting wrecked trying to stay on him. I decided to just to just take it easy and do ride bys getting 1-2 hits wherever, wing, legs, head if you can, doesn't matter, his attacks are so avoidable by just riding through him to a safe distance then going back in once he completed whatever move he decides on. 5 minutes or so and he'll be dead. Don't lock on, just manually turn the camera to face him. Use jousting talisman.
