Flying Dragon Agheel is one of Elden Ring‘s optional bosses. Its arrival is actually quite surprising, as it’ll just swoop in as you’re exploring an area of the swamp. Here’s our Elden Ring guide to help you defeat Flying Dragon Agheel.

Elden Ring guide – How to beat Flying Dragon Agheel
Flying Dragon Agheel can be found along the northern section of Agheel Lake and the Dragon-Burnt Ruins (which I’ll talk more about later). Some players might want an epic fight where you go on horseback like a knight who wants to slay the beast. However, for this guide, we’ll simply cheese by looking for an advantageous position.
That spot is none other than the sloped wall further northwest of the lake. Similar to the Tree Sentinel, Flying Dragon Agheel is an Elden Ring boss that you can cheese if you found a ranged weapon. It’s a lot easier if you have the Arrow’s Reach Talisman as well.
Note: You can also snipe from the Dragon-Burnt Ruins, but the environments there are destructible. The sloped wall, meanwhile, can’t be destroyed.
As you’re shooting the boss, beware of its fire breath. It will move off to the side, spewing flames in a frontal cone that will go through the opening. However, if you hug the sloping wall, you should be able to avoid the damage. You can just continue shooting at its leg since it barely moves, or the beast’s head whenever it pops up for the fire breath.
After beating Flying Dragon Agheel in Elden Ring, you’ll receive a Dragon Heart. This allows you to unlock dragon-type spells in the Church of Dragon Communion.
What about the Dragon-Burnt Ruins?
There are a couple of interesting tidbits in the Dragon-Burnt Ruins in Elden Ring. The first is the northern area where Torrent’s double jump can be used. This leads to a cellar with treasure chest containing the Twinblade weapon:
- Requirement – Str 10 and Dex 18
- Scaling – Str D and Dex D
The second is at the other edge of the area, which also has a cellar. However, the chest here has a transporter trap. It will teleport you to Sellia Crystal Tunnel all the way to the east in the Caelid region. This is a high-level area, and you’ll probably end up dead if you go toe to toe with the enemies here.
Instead, you can check your viewpoint until you see a passageway to the south. Dodge-roll past all the enemies and keep your fingers crossed that you make it. There’s a Site of Grace at the end, and resting there will allow you to use the fast travel system to get back to Limgrave.
