Preparing For The Moder Fight
Stock Up On Potions
Bring Frost Resist Mead & Equip Wolf Armor Set
Make sure to bring a lot of Frost Resistance Mead since Moder can inflict Frost attacks which can lower your speed.
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
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.Click Here For Weapons List
Bring Fire Arrows & Poison Arrows
Moder Has Resistance To Blunt Weapons
Moder has the resistance to blunt weapons so bringing one & attacking with it is not a good idea.
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.Click Here For Food List!
Frost Shards From Above
This is where Moder breathes frozen shards from above that can pierce through you.
Moder will charge up and let out a Frost breath that damages in a straight line so watch out for it at all cost.
This is one of Moder's melee attacks it has a huge reach, make sure to equip your shield if you are close to the dragon.
Another one of Moder's melee attacks, Moder usually bites if you are close to its head. It can also be blocked by a Shield as well.
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.
Fire Is Its Weakness
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.
Once the Dragon has been defeated it will drop 2 Items.
To activate Moder's buff you have to go back to the spawing altar and place it on the rural stone with a carving of a dragon and you'll be able to received the buff "Always Tailwind When Sailing".
