In The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wilde there are three dragons. The names of the The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wilde dragons are Naydra, Dinraal and Farosh. The dragons are ancient and primordial spirits that have taken the form of these massive, majestic dragons and they can’t be harmed by mortals.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild dragons
All three dragons can be found in separate parts of Hyrule. You can tell when the The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wilde dragons are near you because the music will change and large updrafts will appear around the dragon that will let Link use Paraglider to get closer. But be careful because every dragon will summon elemental orbs that can strike and cause some damage to Link and even make him fall out of the sky.
If you are able to land an arrow on one of the dragons, the dragon will drop a rare mineral that otherwise you would have to look for in select chests. Dragons can drop one of these four parts: horn, a scale, fang or claw.
Dragon parts are used for armor upgrades. Also, the parts can be used to boost recipe effects for a period of time. The dragon horns have the most value. When horns are cooked into recipes, they have a boosted duration of 30 minutes.
Where to find Dinraal
Dinraal is the Red Spirit dragon, the fire spirit dragon. Dinraal is said to have served the Spring of Power since ancient times.
Dinraal can be found along the entire Tanagar Canyon bfore exiting north of Gerudo Highlands. A good starting point to find Dinraal is climbing on the cliffs a bit south of the Eldin Great Skeleton. Wait for the dragon, then fly north and with your bow and arrow aim at the part of the dragon depending on what do you want to get from the dragon.
Another way to find Dinraal, on of the The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wilde dragons is to wait on the Tabantha Great Bridge early in the morning, at 5 a.m. Prepare yourself and the dragon will fly under the bridge, under you. Wait for the updraft and target the part of the dragon you want.
If you want Dinraal’s Scale – shoot the body.
If you want Dinraal’s Claw – shoot the claw.
If you want Dinraal’s Horn – shoot the horns.
If you want Dinraal’s Fang – shoot the face.
How to find Naydra
Many players suggest that if you haven’t had the luck of finding a dragon yet, that you try to find Naydra first. It is because finding Naydra will help you understand the aspects of the role of dragons in Hyrule.
Nydra is the Blue Spirit dragon, the spirit of ice. It’s said to have served the Spring of Wisdom since ancient times.
Naydra can be found north of Mountain Lanayru in the Lanayru Bay. The dragon appears around 12 a.m. and is going down by around 6 a.m. Just wait on the south side of Lanayru Bay grassy area and Naydra will show up in the western sky.
When you will see the updraft, you will have to paraglide perpendicular to the river, that will bring you close to Naydra. Then as usual press Y to target the part of the dragon depending on what do you want to acquire. Also, you can do this only once per day. If you need more than just one item, light a fire for time to pas faster.
If you want Naydra’s Scale – shoot the body.
If you want Naydra’s Claw – shoot the claw.
If you want Naydra’s Horn – shoot the horns.
If you want Naydra’s Fang – shoot the face.
How to find Farosh
Farosh is the Green spirit dragon, the spirit of lightning. It is believed that the dragon served the Spring of Courage since ancient times. The electricity that is around his body may make it difficult to get close to the dragon, but Farosh bears no ill will toward people.
The lightning dragon Farosh can be found on the western edge of the Gerudo Highlands and will be flying across the mountain range, appearing out of the waters of Lake Hylia in the Lake Region, or in the Faron Region – Lake Flora. Both in Lake Hyla and Lake Flora Farosh begins early mornings. You can fly down from the Akkala tower Lake Tower to the top of the first bridge and wait for the dragon to show up here.
After updraft, paraglide parallel to the bridge that will bring you close to Farosh. And then do the same as with other dragons, press Y to aim an arrow to body, claw, horns or face.
If you want Farosh’s Scale – shoot the body.
If you want Farosh’s Claw – shoot the claw.
If you want Farosh’s Horn – shoot the horns.
If you want Farosh’s Fang – shoot the face.
