Vinuskar appears in Stilshrine of Miriam. When first confronting the creature, you’ll find it in the Ward of Steel. In this area, there are three pits that spew fire. To summon Vinuskar, head to the farthest pit. As soon as the metal dragon appears, there will be a large gravitational and magnetic field. Weapons recommended for this battle are bows and guns, which are not affected by the fields.

Battle Strategy

While Vinuskar is relatively easy to defeat. It has two attacks to watch out for: Crown and Sword Dance. Both these attacks can deal heavy damage. To soften the damage, have a Sash equipped to each member of the party.

Do not use hammers, axes, or any of the two-handed swords against it. The attack speed of your characters will be affected by the magnetic field. The field additionally decreases the attack speed of your characters by a third if they are equipped with any of the above-mentioned weapons. To quickly defeat it, chain Quickenings, as they require little time to cast or charge.
