Love the game, but the dragon is kicking my @$$, playing alchemy build. Dark mode he can kill me with one hit, but had fun on both playthroughs. Wanted to do a 3rd playthroughs Sign build but my playlist is getting back logged. Any tips for dragon, and what's a sign build work, to me it seems to keep switching out signs breaks up the flow, I usually just use quen.

Hmm, that's odd. My last playthrough was an alchemy build and I ended up having 100 resistance to fire (potions and mutagens combined.)

don't use signs against the dragon, just swing a few times and run around to avoid the dragon's attacks. Also have quen up whenever possible.

Took a couple of tries but finally beat darn dragon, and killed her out of pure spite when the time came ... ploughing dragon. Now need to decide if to start playthrough 3 or move onto Dark Souls
