Crown of the Sunken King Final Boss
Sinh has both standing attacks and airborne attacks. The dragon will fly through the air and land, and attack players with various fire and physical attacks. Watch out for Sinh's diving attack! This is a very fast head-on attack that will damage any player who is in front of Sinh. While in the air, the dragon can also shoot fireballs at you.
Use ranged ammunition/spell attacks while Sinh is soaring through the air. The dragon will spend quite a lot of time in the air, but will land at times. When Sinh lands, watch out for the wing flap attack and the tail swipe attack. Roll or block the wing flap attack and roll out of the way when Sinh tail swipes.
The dragon will use many fireball attacks. Roll out of the away of these to avoid damage. Sinh's fiery spread attack is not avoided as easily unfortunately. The player must be a great distance from the fiery attack to avoid taking damage. Or the player can get behind the dragons neck and attack with melee. In this fashion, you can deal damage and also avoid taking it. The neck will push you away from the flame, which keeps you safe for the duration of the deadly fiery attack.
