How to Fight & Defeat The Giant Sleeping Dragon in Elden Ring?


To fight and defeat The Giant Sleeping Dragon in Elden Ring, you need to head over to the Fort Faroth Site of Grace. Once you make your way here, you need to go towards the north to find The Giant Sleeping Dragon.

Once you spot the dragon, you need to move towards it and start attacking it. We recommend you attack the dragon’s wings and legs. Doing so will avoid drawing the attention of the other smaller dragons in the vicinity. When attacking the dragon, you will need to be as patient as possible, because killing it can be a slow process.

If you want to, you can also summon a spirit or use a weapon with a bleeding effect. Doing so will quicken the battle.

After a few minutes of constant attacking, you will slowly notice the dragon dying. Once it does eventually die, you will receive a Dragon Heart as a reward, along with 74,000 Runes.
