A new and exciting feature of the dragons in Tears of the Kingdom is that players can now ride them if they dare to resist their fiery or icy breath with some potions. In addition, the backs of these magnificent creatures are adorned with spikes that grow pointed fragments at the base, which can be conveniently collected while walking along their backs. This also allows players to use their sword to get a scale and snatch it while maintaining balance on top of the dragon.

Light Dragon only travels the surface. Still, it circles the borders of the entire Hyrule map, so good luck catching up to this elusive serpent. The safest way to spot him is to head to the Sky Islands’ Nachoyah Shrine and wait for him to fly past the south of the island.

When hit, the Light Dragon drops a Light Dragon’s Horn. 12 Shards of the Light Dragon’s Spikes are on his back.

Best Way to Farm Dragons in Tears of the Kingdom

When farming dragons, using a map or game mechanics won’t cut it. The best way to track them down is to launch off a Skyview tower like a fearless adventurer and keep an eye out for the majestic creatures on the surface. If they’re not there, players can wait patiently at the chasm where they emerge from the depths or take a deep breath and plunge into the murky waters below. Following the reverse of the dragon’s path through the depths might just lead to a glimpse of these winged fish gliding through the abyss.
