Elden Ring has a couple of dragons that you can defeat and the Lichdragon Fortissax is one of them. It is known for shooting lightning at enemies which is why it is so terrifying. In this Elden Ring guide, we are going to go over how you can beat the Lichdragon Fortissax boss.
Note that this is an optional boss and you do not need to beat it in order to beat the game. It is worth mentioning that you do need to beat the boss in order to complete Fia’s questline and unlock the “Age of Duskborn” ending in Elden Ring. You can find the Lichdragon Fortissax boss Deeproot Depths.
Beating The Lichdragon Fortissax In Elden Ring
Just like all the other bosses in the game, you need to take your time and take note of the attacks that the boss can use. Note the attack pattern in order to avoid taking damage and find windows of opportunity to deal damage to the boss. Other than lightning attacks, the boss can use its legs to stomp attack you and slam you with its wings. Finally, it can use fire attacks against you as well.
The most devastating attack is when the boss flies into the air and then swoops down on you. This attack is pretty quick and can be very hard to dodge if you do not see it coming. Note that the dragon stays in the air for a couple of seconds so you can be ready to dodge when it comes back down to attack you.
As this is a large beast, its attacks are slow and you will see them coming. This makes them easy to dodge. We recommend attacking the back legs and tail of the dragon. Weapons like the Moonlight Greatsword are going to go a long way. We also recommend the Dark Moon Greatsword.
We recommend not being too cocky. This encounter is going to take some patience and you should not be too aggressive. Take your time and drain the HP bar of the boss.
