    Stairs

Firkraag's Cavern (AR1203)

Firkraag's Domain - Firkraag's Cavern (AR1203)

    Well, Lord Jierdan Firkraag, as it turns out, is a red dragon !!! Well the 'Fir' in Firkraag may have given it away because it is too close to the word 'Fire' - red dragon's trademark.
    Firkraag will tell you that he has tired of this game with you. If you inquire Firkraag will explain the reasons why he has destroyed your reputation. He seems content enough to leave you alone. Questions is whether you would leave him alone. You can tell Firkraag that you won't leave without Garren's child, he'll agree to that if you manage to wrestle her from his pet mage Conster's grasp.

    During the conversation, after Firkraag has mentioned about the deed to Windspear Hills, you may have an opportunity to propose him a deal. This is the EVIL path as you will betray Garren Windspear. Keep in mind that if you are going to go for it then Conster will kill Iltha. At this point you should go to Garren Windspear to set matters straight.
    After you've obtained the deed, bring it to Firkraag and he'll give you one item from his massive hoard as a reward. If you think that this was not enough you can try to kill him.

After killing him you'll get the key to the cells. Set Iltha free and she'll thank you and run to her father.

CONSTER: 6000 exp, Firkraag Prison Key, 48 Gold, Quarterstaff.

FIRKRAAG: 64000 exp, Carsomyr +5, Red Dragon Scales, Cloak of the Shield, [Death Spell], Bloodstone Ring, 1500 Gold.

    Strategies for defeating Firkraag

    Firkraag is a mighty red dragon and by one of his remarks you should know that he would deal with an Amnish army merely as a nuisance. Before you actually fight him you should get yourself properly prepared. this includes casting all beneficial party spells, like Oritection from Fire, Stoneskin, Resist Fear etc. Also in the dungeons above you have collected various items that could help you in the fight with the dragon. These include Ring of Fire Resistance, Dragonslayer, Dragonscale Shield +2 and a Dragon Helm. Giving them to one or two characters would make his/her resistances like XXX.
    Another part of the preparation is to summon as many creatures as you can. Surround him from all sides, don't stand in one line so that he can use his wing buffet.

    The best way to open the battle is to fire a sequencer of Lower Magic Resistances. Three such spells should take his magic resistance down below zero. This is essential if you want to use your spells on him. One properly equipped melee fighter may go toe to toe with Firkraag, just don't forget to switch him out for another fighter when he takes too much damage.

    There is also one cheese tactic of planting traps right where Firkraag stands while he is still neutral. This way, when he becomes hostile they will spring up and damage him, in some cases even instantaneously killing him.
