    Default king forest dragon encounter S West

    Hi all

    Small question on King forest encounter with dragon
    Do some of you remember what diplomacy or buffs or intimidate level is needed to succeed the encounter
    with green dragon ..
    I went there a few times and always fail ..
    Do I need to get a group and kill it ?
    Are the treasure worth it ?
    I succeeded taking him at 50 % Hps targeting him with bows and spells at distance but he gets re-generated at 100 % each time .. well he is a dragon after all !
    Tips welcome

    Yesterday I spent a hour or two running around in the king's forest to meet some rare encounter and wishing to see the green dragon but.... nothing
    I really would like to know where it is

    This post gave far less to the topic than the post quoted, which shared similar experiences to the OP.


    I don't believe this dragon in the explorer area drops scales. Only the green dragon in the Well quest.

    I think I found it at the western part of the map about in the middle. Dont know if he is always there or does it change. I also failed my diplo and had to fight it. Got some piles of gold and 2 chests...no scale though.

    No idea how much diplo would be needed to convince him to just leave....

    Soloed him with my hireling. Hope this helps.

    So you soloed him , he did not regenerate at some point ?
    Anyway great job !
    I will stock a pile of good arrows and will try again to solo him
    For me he is always at the same place but not always as rare encounters trigger some time or not
    He is South west in the middle of the map surrounded by trees with a lake

    There are 2 Green Dragon encounters - only Deal with the Dragon can be resolved by dialogue. You need a skill of around 50. You will earn more XP by talking but it will cost you a 25kpp bribe.

    Go out of the gate in King's Forest and go straight (west)

    Hook a left at some point and head south.

    (sorry about the ultra-precise directions)

    About halfway down the map on the west side is a log bridge.

    Under that bridge is a path that runs perpendicular to the log bridge.

    Go under the bridge and follow the path west to a dead-end grove.

    Here there be dragons.

    I have only done casters past 20 so I don't know what to say for killing with close-quarter.

    I try to stay out of its line of sight and circle him while I blast.

    Maybe that will work with bows.

    If he is regenerating more then your DPS maybe go back at him after getting a few Sheraldi perks.

    Hi, could you be more specific with locations of the dragons? For example – what elminster message is the closest to the encounter?

    Ty a lot.

    I haven't read the walk-through so I can't comment on it's usefulness.

    I've killed the dragon a least a dozen times and no scale has dropped. I have heard there is more than one spawn location, but I have only found the one at message #12.

    He is really not that difficult to kill. I've never tried melee in close questers though. I take him down with my cleric. Fully stacked Divine Punishment while spamming searing light and nimbus light.

    He's worth 3000 XP and two chests and a commendation (I have alway gotten War Wizard Commendations, so I don't know if it is random).

    Some encounters only spawn in one location - this is one of them.

    There is a mountain with a clearing in the southwest of the Map where you can encounter a different Green Dragon. This encounter is called 'The Dragon Aspirant'. No talking with this one, just kill it - it is also a much easier fight. This encounter gives PD commendations.

    Meleeing either dragon is difficult but not impossible due to the near constant knockdowns.


    In the 'Deal with the Dragon' encounter, you can avoid the fight through Intim/Diplo/Bluff but it will cost you a load of Plat.

    At U14 I could solo w/ hireling.

    At U14.1 they screwed up hireings to much so I just don't even bother trying to kill it any more when soloing.

    The loot isn't anything big, and out of the 10 green kills I've been a part of, I have not yet seen any green scales. Scale drop is based on the combination of both dragon spawn locations.
