Location For Dinraal The Red Dragon
Dinraal the Fire Dragon spawns at the Akkala Highlands near the chasm entrance.
After the Dragon spawns, Dinraal will wrap around the death mountain and exit through a chasm in the death mountain.
Additionally, here are a few tips for further interaction with the Dragon;
- Dinraal loops around the map for approximately 48 in-game hours.
- The Dragon hugs the Northeast edge of the map going from east to west, then retraces his routes in the opposite direction.
- Moreover, being around Eldin Great Skeleton to interact with the Dragon is better because it is closer to the player area than other places.
- Additionally, players can get one piece of material every 10 minutes from the Dragon.
- However, if the player uses a Flamebreaker Armor set, the player can farm the materials from the Dragon every time it glows.
Fighting the Dragon is a daunting task, however, the materials obtainable through the interaction with the Dragon are worth it.
Furthermore, the players can upgrade their Armor with the materials from the Dragon.
The materials from Dinraal the Red Dragon can upgrade Armor pieces like; Barbarian Leg Wraps, Champion’s Tunic and Trousers of the Wild.
Here is a table of materials that can upgrade the Armor and their upgrade levels;
|Armor||Dragon Part Needed||Upgrade Level|
|Barbarian Helm||Shard of Dinraal's Horn||****|
|Champion's Tunic||2x Shard of Dinraal's Horn||****|
|Trousers of the Wild||2x Dinaraal's Scale||*|
What Time Does Dinraal The Red Dragon Spawn?
Dinraal the Red Dragon spawns between the times 9 am, 1 pm and 11 pm in TotK.
The time is based on the in-game timer. However, the spawn time is linked to the route the Dragon takes.
Moreover, the Dinraal spawn time in TotK is 9 am at Akkale Highlands near the Chasm and makes its way through the map, where at the end of the route it is 11 pm at the Eldin Mountains near the Chasm.
How To Farm Materials From The Dragon?
The players need to be at a sky tower near the pathway of the Dragon.
They can fly from the tower using a paraglider and then shoot an arrow when near the Dragon and then land on it.
Additionally, the players need to target specific areas to obtain specific materials.
However, you can use Shrines as well to get to the Dragon. But, the Shrines will ask for specific Dragon materials for the players to access the shrine.
Additionally, the players advise others to have a good amount of stamina bar or use food to increase their stamina when tackling the Dragons.
Moreover, in the case of Dinraal, the players advise equipping the Flamebreaker Armor to allow an easier time farming the materials from the Dragon.
Here is a table of materials obtainable from the interaction with Dinraal the Red Dragon.
|Dragon Name||Material Obtained|
|Dinraal The Red Dragon||Dinraal's Scale
Shard of Dinraal's Fang
Shard of Dinraal's Horn
However, the players can obtain one piece of material with every interaction with the Dragons.
Additionally, players can farm each piece every 10 minutes which means the players can only get a total of 4 pieces of materials from the Dragon.
Additionally, players can farm specific materials by targeting specific areas of the Dragons.
The players can target the mouth or jaw of the Dragon to obtain the fang, the shard of the horn, the back or the face area for the scale, and the claw to obtain the claw of the specific Dragon.
The Bottom Line
The legendary Dragons provide the players with great materials to upgrade some of the best gear in the game.
However, the Dinraal Dragons spawn at a certain in-game time in TotK, and the interaction does not always go as planned. But the payoff is great when the interaction is done right.
Hopefully, this article is helpful in finding the Red Dragon and getting the materials needed to upgrade the specific gear.
