Preparing For The Moder Fight

Stock Up On Potions


This is going to be a tough fight since Moder will be flying during the battle & will only land, so we recommend that you bring potions like Medium Healing Mead & Medium Stamina Mead.

Bring Frost Resist Mead & Equip Wolf Armor Set

Frost Resist Mead

Make sure to bring a lot of Frost Resistance Mead since Moder can inflict Frost attacks which can lower your speed.

Wolf Armor Set

Since you're going to the mountains, we would advise that you equip the Wolf Armor Set since it can give you more armor & also you won't get any freezing effects.

You can also equipped different Armor Set, make sure that you have a lot of Frost Resistance Mead, we still recommend that you wear the Wolf Armor Set so you won't have to keep consuming a Frost Resistance Mead.

Bring A Draugr Fang

Draugr Fang

We recommend that you bring the Draugr Fang for this fight since this is the strongest ranged attack weapon in the game and in addition it also has a poison effect damage to it that should inflict damages to Moder.

Bring Fire Arrows & Poison Arrows

Fire Arrows & Poison Arrows

Since Moder is weak to fire, we recommend that you also Fire Arrows to put the dragon down & to top it off, bring some Poison Arrows in the fray, that way the poison will slowly deplete its health.

We recommend that you bring 100 Fire Arrows & 100 Poison Arrows for this fight.

Moder Has Resistance To Blunt Weapons

Resistance to Blunt Weapons

Moder has the resistance to blunt weapons so bringing one & attacking with it is not a good idea.

Food Combinations

Eat Food

Before heading to battle as always, never leave with an empty stomach. So keep in mind as always that you should always leave with full health & stamina.

For the food, we recommend that you eat Cooked Serpent Meat, Serpent Stew & the Sausages as those 3 food can give you 221 Health & 165 stamina.

Strategy Against Moder & Its Weakness

Dodge The Frost Shards

Moder will use shoot frozen shards every time he is flying, so make sure to dodge it all time.

Break The Frost Shards

Once the Frozen Shards has landed on the ground, it becomes spikes which can limit your movement, so make sure to break it with a sword.

Since Moder will mostly be flying during the battle, we recommend that you shoot it with Fire Arrows as this would give you an advantage and would kill the dragon quickly.

Bonemass Buff Or Eikthyr Buff

There are 2 Buffs that you can either be used in this fight. If you don't want to run out of stamina quickly during the fight then activate Eikthyr's buff or if you want to have physical resistance for 5 minutes then Bonemass' Buff is for you.
