How To Collect Dragon Materials

Materials Can Be Obtained By Attacking Specific Parts Of A Dragon

HornShard of FangClawScaleShard of Spike

Dragon Materials can be obtained by attacking specific parts of a dragon while riding it. The corresponding parts and materials are as shown in the table above. Focus on the part of the body you're attacking according to the material you want.

Claws & Fang Pieces Are Obtained By Attacking With Bows & Arrows

The mouth and hands are difficult to attack, so attacking them with bows and arrows is recommended. If it is difficult to aim well, you can jump down for a moment and use the Bow Throw to attack easily.

▼Picking up glowing drops will give you pieces of claws and fangs.

When you attack a part, a glowing item will drop and you can get various Materials by picking it up. If you attack the mouth or hand, be sure to pick it up immediately after the attack because it will fall to the ground if you leave it be.

Materials Other Than The Shard Of Spike Respawn Once Every 10 Minutes

When AvailableWhen Unavailable

Once you attack the spikes and it drops materials, the light will go out which means that it will not drop materials anymore. After 10 minutes in real time (10 hours in game), the light will glow again and materials can be dropped again.

Only The Spikes Do Not Revive While Near The Dragon

You can pick up the Shard of Spikes from around the corner of the dragon's back, but unlike other materials, the Shard of Spikes will not respawn while you are near the dragon. Therefore, if you want to get Shard of Spike, move to another location after you have picked them all up.
