Use a Mounted Weapon
Zorah Magdaros has a tough shell that can withstand normal attacks. Use either a cannon or ballista to whittle down its health.
Break All Three Cores
The cores are latched onto Zorah Magdaros, making them difficult to break. You need to find an opening to mount the dragon and break them. While it isn’t imperative to destroy all cores, you will earn more materials for doing so.
Stop Zorah Magdaros from Breaching
Later on, the battle will shift to the surface. Get back to a cannon or ballista and continue firing at Zorah Magdaros. Speak to the NPC in charge of the cannons to expedite the process. You have to defeat the dragon before the barrier’s health runs out.
Repel it for Good using the Dragonator
After weakening Zorah Magdaros, you will be tasked with piloting the Dragonator. Head down to the ship underneath and operate the lever to activate the drill. Continue to use the drill to finish the battle.
