For The quest with the same name, see Hakkon Wintersbreath (quest).

Hakkon Wintersbreath is a unique high dragon encountered in the Jaws of Hakkon DLC for Dragon Age: Inquisition. It can be found in the Frostback Basin during the main quest Hakkon Wintersbreath (quest).

Background Edit

This high dragon is an ancient beast which during the Divine Age was bound and forced to serve as the vessel for the Avvar god Hakkon Wintersbreath. Sealed by Ameridan within the Old Temple in the Frostback Basin for ages, it is finally freed in the Dragon Age by the re-formed Jaws of Hakkon.

Strategy Edit

Cold Resistance Tonics are useful here since the Hakkon dragon's magical attacks are all ice element. A recipe can be found at the Old Temple for this if not already acquired.

Equipping the party with fire-aspected weapons will help increase damage output.

Dragon-Slaying Runes are also effective.

Hakkon Wintersbreath begins attacking by unleashing a pack of Frosted Gibbering horrors and will then follow similar high dragon attack patterns;

  • Frost Breath
  • Cyclone that damages anyone outside it as well as pulling the party towards Hakkon
  • Hakkon may take off and fly around while breathing Ice at the party
  • Hakkon can land on the upper podium, where Hakkon will summon more horrors as well as use Ice breath attacks
  • Stunning Screech
  • When weakened, Hakkon will flee to the raised platform and the party will have to move up to attack.
