Useful Info

Rime drakes are one of the least deadly lesser dragons, but they are still capable of irritating and injuring adventurers.

They can be encountered in the Lair and other midgame branches like the Swamp, and can be summoned by enemies with the Summon Drakes spell.

Tips & Tricks

  • Their Flash Freeze breath deals significant damage that ignores your EV and applies the Frozen status effect, slowing your movement. Try to have a rank of cold resistance. Fortunately, they cannot spam Flash Freeze, as it has no effect on creatures that are already frozen.
  • They are fast, but have low AC, a moderate amount of EV and no MR to speak of. So just take them out quickly.


  • Rime drakes were added in 0.18.
