The Dragon Hunt is a quest in the recently released Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous, an isometric CRPG in the vein of classic titles like Planescape: Torment. The quest has players hiring a dragon hunting bounty hunter, chasing the winged beast, and ultimately slaying it to free the crusaders of the dragon scourge. Here's how to complete the quest.

The Dragon Hunt: How to Complete Pathfinder Quest

You'll first be able to take on this quest once you've made your way to Drezen. Head to the tavern in the upper right corner of the citadel and find the bounty hunting dwarf Greybor. You should recognize him from your time in the Estrod tower. Hire him to accompany you on your hunt of the dragon and you'll have begun the quest in earnest.

Head west with Greybor toward Grimwood. Along the way, the dragon will attack you up to two times. Fight it off and continue to Grimwood. Touch base with Greybor, then head out to ambush the dragon. When it flees the fight, follow the trail of blood — a location will appear under Drezen called the Blood Trail.

Save before you head to the Blood Trail, as when you get there you'll need to pass a few skill checks to ascertain that the dragon has continued south to Artisan's Tower. Yet more checks ahead, but Greybor can help you pass them.

You'll find the dragon with the Storyteller, and if you choose to wait and listen you can hear snippets of stories from Pathfinder: Kingmaker. When you're ready, attack the dragon and prevent it from fleeing to finish the fight.

With the dragon defeated, you'll have the opportunity to hire Greybor permanently for a not insignificant amount of gold.
