Elden Ring Sleeping Dragon Location

The location of the sleeping dragon is north of Fort Faroth. That’s a castle in the east of Dragonbarrow, in the land of Caelid. We’ll mark the location for you in the screenshot below. Near the castle, there’s an enormous sleeping dragon which doesn’t even flinch if you attack it. Granted, its kids are protecting it fiercely, but the giant remains dormant. It still takes a very long time to kill the thing (using a weapon which causes Bleed buildup like Hookclaws helps speed the process up), but it will never hit back. In other words, there’s several truckloads of Runes just lying there. But attacking such a peaceful creature just seems wrong, leading people to assume that they shouldn’t mess with it. Maybe it’s actually a part of a quest line, and if it isn’t there, you’ll be stuck. But is that the case? Well…

Elden Ring Sleeping Dragon Related Quest

As far as we can tell, there is no quest related to the sleeping dragon in Elden Ring. In fact, it seems that its death is kinda inevitable. Why? Because you get an Incantation after slaying it, which you need to get an achievement; specifically the one where you collect all Legendary Incantations and Sorceries. When the dragon is dead, you’ll get the message that “A new draconic power is available at the Cathedral of Dragon Communion.” Not to mention the obscene amount of Runes that you can get, especially if you have the Gold Scarab equipped and use the Gold-Pickled Fowl Foot just before delivering the killing blow. Oh, it also drops a Dragon Heart, of course. So, yeah; it might feel wrong to slay the sleeping beast, but we’re pretty sure you can do it consequence-free.

Very early in your exploration of Elden Ring world you will find out that you need to prepare your character for different tasks. You'll need to learn how to use Ashes of War, how to two-hand weapons, or use magic spells during the course of your adventures. Many secrets are also waiting for you, such as, a hostile NPC Sellen that doesn't let you see her shop, an invisible man in a bush, or a huge turtle with a bell that lets you duplicate some very important items.
