Slane the Winter Dragon is a NPC in Divinity: Original Sin 2.



Slane the Winter Dragon information

  • Upon first encountering Slane you will find him bound to the ground by a set of chains, which can be destroyed through attacking them. The dragon will not be able to speak with you until you do this.
  • After some dialogue you will be asked to retrieve the Witch's purging wand, as it is the only way to free the dragon of it's souls captivity. 
  • Radeka the Witch wields the Purging Wand, and must be found in the beachside cave to the South of Slane's location. Kill her and the extra enemies summons to loot the wand from her corpse.
  • Upon returning to Slane with the wand in inventory, you may speak with him again and either offer to give him the Purging Wand or decide to keep it for yourself. (NOTE NEXT TWO BULLETINS)
  • Handing the wand over results in his gratitude, and now immediate rewards, although he will be of use later as he will destroy the pair of shriekers North of The Abandoned Camp upon your avatar approaching them. It's very possible to die while standing in range of the Shrieker's waiting for Shane to fly over, so watch the "tendrils" connecting to you, they indicate you're in the instant death zone.
  • Refusing to give Slane the Purging Wand results in combat.



Slane the Winter Dragon location

  • Slane the Winter Dragon first appears in southeast area of the island, not far from Witch's Location and Gargoyle's Maze. It will be on the beachside, with frozen surfaces surrounding the area.

      i did it on Tactician thanks to the Dome Of Protection.6000 xp and good loot..Then again tactician isnt meant for an Origin Character other than custom.Their source powers are awful other than Fane perhaps.
      Magic doesnt work well on Slane because he has permanent Soothing Cold..Physical damage is required.

        Rupture Tendons (Scoundrel skill) absolutely wrecks Slane. I applied it with my rogue, then Slane used Dragonfall to attack my max-range archer before using Fly to get back into melee combat with my rogue. The rupture knocked off around 2/3 of his health when he used Fly.

          Is this dude like an OC insert from crowdfunding or something? I find it a bit strange how the MC kind of gushes over him.

            I was able to kill him at level 7 using a rogue and a summoner. Dropped an uber sword, a dagger called Toothpick, and some other unique items.
