Strategy Writeup

The difficulty with the fight against Kraeaxenar stems from his ability to cover melee and medium ranges very effectively. Many of his attacks also require you to get far away to safely avoid, allowing you very few chances to get hits in. 

By far his most dangerous move is the Grounded Breath attack which not only has an incredibly long range but also a lingering hitbox. You can safely avoid this attack by running far away, to the very edge of the flames and jumping as it approaches. This will allow you to not get hit but will also prevent you from retaliating. If you are close enough to the dragon when the attack begins, you can roll forward past his lowered head and get at least 3 hits in. If you are caught in the middle of the breath, you can jump and combine ranged and melee attacks to increase your airtime.

Another move to watch out for is his Sweeping Breath. This move covers the dragon's rear all the way past midrange in his front so dodge it by jumping while behind the boss and repetedly performing  aerial attack to keep yoursef airborn for longer. This is  simultaniously best wway to avoid and dish out damage . Finally, his Chomp and Tail Sweep attacks can easily be rolled through, allowing a small window for you to attack as well.

Play defensively for this fight, make liberal use of your Hearthen Flasks and always be on the move. It may just be one of the most difficult ones by far and requires you to properly learn to read the boss' attacks.


Attacks & Counters

Attack Counter
Dragon Breath Kraeaxenar stands tall with blue flames forming at his mouth. He then slams down with his forelegs and breathes fire at the ground in front of him. Both his claw slam and breath can hit the player from melee and medium range. To avoid the attacks, run far away from the dragon.
Tail Sweep  Kraeaxenar stands tall and spreads his wings slightly. After a very brief delay, he sweeps his tail across floor in front of him. The attack can be rolled through with good timing. Otherwise, get away from melee range. Beware as Kraeaxenar can quickly follow this up with his Dragon Breath combo.
Chomp  Kraeaxenar pulls his head back and delivers a powerful bite near the ground in front of him. This attack can be rolled through with good timing. Otherwise, get far away from the dragon.
Melee Combo Kraeaxenar swipes with one claw and then stomps with the other directly in front of him. He finishes off with a Chomp. Get out of melee range during the claw attacks and roll through the Chomp as it comes down.
Grounded Breath Kraeaxenar stands tall, pulling his head further up as blue flames form at his mouth. He then lowers his head close to the ground, breathing a long stream of fire across the deck. This move is very difficult to avoid and you will need to jump several times in order to mitigate damage from it. However, it will still hit you as long as you are in front of the dragon.
Sweeping Breath  Kraeaxenar stands tall as blue flames form at his mouth. He then tilts his head down, pointing slightly towards his torso. He then breathes fire towards his tail and then sweeps the flames outwards. Get far away from the dragon as you see him breathe towards his tail.
Strafe Run Kraeaxenar takes flight and begins a strafe run, breathing fire across the ship's deck. Once he's in the air, sprint towards and underneath him to prevent getting incinerated. If you are too far away, wait for the breath to approach and roll through it to avoid damage.

      when you realise that sweaping breath is a blessing in disguise. if you jump and do light aerial attacks you do damage during his attacj which is very generous. no other boss lets you hit them for so free

              So he should be there the first time you get to the ship? I helped kill him in someone else's game and he didnt show in my game.
