The fight against Flying Dragon Agheel is simple enough. Charge on your Mount towards Agheel’s legs. Charge up your heavy attack and unleash it on one of Agheel’s legs. You can refocus your auto-target to Agheel’s legs which makes this process a lot easier. 

Unfortunately, the fight is not that easy. If you hang around Agheel’s legs for too long, Agheel will spin around and do some serious damage to you. Additionally, Agheel will chase you and breathe fire in your direction.

There are several attacks that Agheel has that you should memorize.

  1. Sweeping Flame Attack: Does not track the player, but creates a firey death zone in front of Agheel. Avoid going in front of Agheel, and if you can get behind them and attack them once.
  2. Long Tracking Fire Attack: Tracks the player. A long cone of flames that is hard to dodge. Runaway and move perpendicular to the fire.
  3. Fire explosion: One big burst of flames that Agheel breaths out. Run far away from Agheel to avoid this attack.
  4. Sky Fire: While Agheel is flying, they will spray fire in a straight line from above. Avoid being under Agheel while they are flying.
  5. Spin Attack: If you hang around too long near Agheel, they will spin around and do damage. Whenever you attack Agheel, make it one or two hits and then run away. That way, you will avoid this attack.
  6. Stomp: Agheel will stomp its legs if you hang around too long. You can tell when they’re about to do this. Get out of the way as soon as possible when you see Agheel’s legs starting to move up. 

The attack strategy you will have to implement is avoiding Agheel’s attacks and then ride up to Agheel on Torrent and get one or two hits on their legs. Then, you will need to quickly run away and get some distance from Agheel so you can avoid their fire attacks.

Agheel will fly around the swamp area and land in different places. Therefore, you need to follow him around the swamp and when he is flying. Keep in mind that Agheel will attack you from the skies and on the ground, so keep your distance until it is safe to approach.
