Drednaw - Latest Changes

Drednaw Adjustments (October 20th)

Changes- Shield & EXP gain reduced.

Drednaw has received some balance adjustments in the October 20th patch. These take the form of a reduction in the overall exp and shield provided by Drednaw when it is defeated. As you can see the in the above video, the reduction isn't massive, so it's likely that the first Drednaw of the game will still be the most important objective.

When defeated, Drednaw offers a protective shield and exp to your whole squad (regardless of their position relative to Drednaw) for a brief time. The barrier appears to absorb at least 15-20% of maximum health worth of damage.

Despite being nerfed in a previous patch, Drednaw still grants a significant amount of experience when defeated. Defeating it is often enough to level up your Pokemon (though this depends on your level at the time). This can help your squad get its Unite moves in before the opponent!

Team That Does Last Hit Captures Drednaw

Overall damage done to Drednaw doesn't matter - what matters is who gets the last hit on it. For this reason, it's best to eliminate all enemy players nearby before attempting to finish it off!

Fighting Drednaw Tips

Prioritize Drednaw For EXP Boost

In the current meta, prioritizing Drednaw will cause your team to gain an EXP lead that can be used as leverage against your opponents. Try to immediately group up and defeat it after it spawns at the 7-minute mark. It's ideal for at least one player from the top lane to rotate the bottom during this time as well.

Versatile Defensive Shield

Versatile Defensive Shield

Although the major reason to choose Drednaw is the immense amount of experience it provides, its shield can still be effective in clearing out other Pokemon that may still be in the area or using against your lane opponents.
