Easy way to kill any Dragon in the game - Dragon Age: Inquisition (DAI)
I would like to share some builds/strategies on how to easily take down almost any dragon in Dragon Age Inquisition.
In my opinion, this can be done with two characters (including The Inquisitor): Varric and Sera.
I recommend having this checklist covered:
Have Mighty Offensive tonic unlocked
Upgrade the Mighty Offensive Tonic with increased critical damage
Use the tonic just before lashing out damage
Have Focus bar filled. The bigger the Focus level you have, the easier it will be. Level 3 will provide a longer duration and a larger number of attacks
Have high critical rate - at least 50%
Poisoned Weapons ability also helps for larger damage
How to do it with Sera
The main idea is to use:
Flask of Fire + Throwing Blades.
Have the relevant upgrades on Throwing Blades
This results in huge single target damage.
Also, use Thousand Cuts. It will make you deal a tremendous amount of damage after the Flask of Fire wears off
In this video with level 16 Sera, I take on Vinsomer - level 19 dragon. As you can see the dragon only has a chance to land one attack before it is dead:
How to do it with Varric
Varric is another character that makes taking out dragons easy. You will use a bow as you need access to Leaping Shot.
Also, invest in Hail of Arrows to multiply your damage.
Check the video below on how I use Varric to take down two dragons in Emprise Du Lion on Nightmare difficulty with Even Ground trials:
I am using this Artificer build in the video above.
As you can see with the correct ability investment and appropriate equipment, the game can easily become your playground. I do not personally recommend using these tactics if you are playing for the first time.
