How to fight Kulve Taroth

2 Collect gold chips through side quests.

4 Check the quest board to find the special assignment “Banquet in the Earthen Hall.”

Join a Party

It is tough to take out Kulve Taroth single-handedly, so you need to enlist in a party. During the siege, players from other teams can break one of her parts, which consequently yields only partial points for you if you land an assist. You need to break one yourself to get max points. Assign each member of your team to focusing on a single part. If each member of your party breaks a part, every member will earn better drops. In order to carve each of her parts, you need to break the gold plated horns, armor, and mantle covered tail.

Keep Moving

While it goes without saying, you need to be on the lookout for Kulve Taroth. Sometimes she can unleash a vicious fire breath or scatter flames on the ground to inflict fireblight. Check her mouth to see if it catches fire, then time your dodge to the side to evade it. Meanwhile, you can tell if she’s about to cover the area in flames when she rises her hind legs. Backpedal to avoid its fireblight effect.

Focus on One of its Parts

Kulve Taroth’s gold plating is her weakest spot, so channel your attacks on it. Choose between bladed or blunt weapons to strike its weak point. You need to break her horns to finish the siege.

Check its Status

When her gold plating is active, she is weak to Thunder attacks. After destroying the gold plating, she becomes weak to ice instead. If you don’t plan on swapping elements later on, bring a water elemental weapon.

Initially, you need to start the investigation by collecting tracks and whittling down its health. Next phase involves the use of the terrain. After some time, Kulve Taroth loses her protective covering. You need to mount the dragon which causes her body to glow. Have everyone unleash everything they have for heavy damage. When you reach the third zone, tear her coating off with bombs. In the final zone, you need to shatter her horns. Have someone put her to sleep, then surround her with bombs. The blast should be enough to break her horns and end the fight.
