The Dragonkin Soldier is a powerful enemy with enough power to throw you across the map. This monstrosity is ready for you to challenge if you dare. Like with the dragon bosses, you’ll want to be riding on horseback to fight to make things a little easier. This is how you defeat the Dragonkin Soldier in the Elden Ring.
Location of Dragonkin Soldier
You will find the Dragonkin Soldier in the Siofra River. To get to this site, you first need to find the Siofra River Well on the east side of Mistwood. Take the elevator down and go through this area until you reach the large lake area with stairs surrounded by unlit spiers. Go to the forest and use the teleport stone to teleport to the area with the Dragonkin Soldier. The teleport stone is on top of a fallen pillar that you can climb on.
Dragonkin Soldier’s Attacks
Dragonkin Soldier has a few basic attacks that are easy to recognize but will deal a lot of damage if they are linked together. If you get too close, the boss will swipe one of its arms horizontally across the ground. It will also lift up and perform a massive attack.
In addition to those two attacks, the boss will perform an approach attack when it reaches out an arm and slams the ground. It will also use a claw attack when it reaches its arms away and claws the ground. Finally, it will perform an upper cut, where it pulls its arm along the ground before swinging up.
How to Defeat Dragonkin Soldier
Defeating the Dragonkin Soldier is easier said than done. Any attack that connects will deal a tremendous amount of damage. You’ll want to stay on horseback throughout the fight. When attacking melee, keep your distance and wait for the boss to use one of its attacks. You’re better off waiting for the uppercut or slam as they take the longest to recover. Run in and attack the boss’s legs before running out. Rinse and repeat until the boss is defeated.
When using ranged attacks, stick to a consistent distance and surround the boss. Use the Swift Glintstone Shard spell if you have it as it can be effectively cast while on horseback without slowing you down. Keep firing your spells until the boss comes down. Chances are it will use up a few jars so be prepared and bring extra supplies if needed.
