Legend of Mana Dragon%: The Guardian of Winds

This is part of a first-playthrough guide using the Dragon story arc. It covers both the original PSX version and the 2021 HD remaster, though some place and item names differ slightly in the latter. You can find anĀ overview of the Dragon% path here.

The Quick Version

Place the Artifacts you got from your last quest and head to the Underworld. Pick up Larc at the entrance screen and head for the Norn Peaks. Fight your way to the top and defeat the first of Drakonis’ enemies. Receive the Dragonbone and Tome of Magic Artifacts after the boss fight.

The Details (May Contain Spoilers)

The path to the Village of the Winds is straightforward: just keep heading east. Once you start climbing the mountain proper, the first fork appears at Mountain Trail, but the upper left path from that room leads to a dead end with a few treasure chests.

The upper right path from Mountain Trail takes you to the first of three minibosses. This fight is a little tougher than most up to this point; to keep things under control, try to land a hit whenever you see blue and green shapes that telegraph a spell being cast by the boss.

After some dialogue, head to the upper left and keep going left to fight the second miniboss, with the same moveset (and the same near-continual spellcasting) as the first. Once this fight is done, go right three screens (back the way you came), then head to the upper right and keep going right past the statue. The third and final miniboss is here.

Backtrack to where you saw the statue, interact with it, then pass through the path the statue was blocking. From here, it’s just a few more screens until you find yourself face-to-face with dragon boss Akravator. Defeat him to complete the quest.
