Snow Harpy

Snow Harpy is an Enemy in Dragon's Dogma.

Overview

The Snow Harpy is a variant of the common Harpy, similar in most respects except it is found in colder norther climes, and posseses a freezing breath that may freeze prey or threats. They can be distinguished from regular Harpies by their white wings.

They are very weak to Fire-based attacks, and resistant to ice otherwise use regular Harpy tactics to take them out.

Attacks

Attack Type Description
Dive Attack Phys Quickly dives at a target and slashes them with its talons.
Grab Spec Grabs a target and attempts to fly off with it, and then drops the target at death-causing heights. Wiggle the L-stick to free yourself before this happens.
Sing Status Starts singing with a sleep-inducing voice, other Snow Harpies often join in to make this process faster. Causes Sleep.
Frost Breath Mag/Status Breathes short range ice breath at a target which can cause Frozen Solid status.
Knock Off Phys/Spec After the Arisen grabs onto a flying Snow Harpy, eventually it will decide it has had enough and knock you off, dropping you from a height for typically fatal damage on impact.


Tactics

Main article Harpy
Tactics for dealing with Snow Harpies are the same as their cousins - however they are tougher and more resistant to magic than their cousins, but are very weak to fire.

Snow Harpies in the Greatwall region

Many Snow Harpies can be found near the Miasmic Haunt and Hillfigure Knoll.

  • Any fire based skill, item spell or weapon will be useful if it can be used against a Snow Harpy.
    • All shortbow and longbow users: Equipping Oil Arrows and then using a Fire buff will set these arrows on fire; this is the poor Arisen's Blast Arrow, which are even more effective.
    • For Magic Archers - the striking power of an Explosive Bolt is strong enough to down a Snow Harpy, even without exploding the charge.
  • If a pawn gets Frozen solid by a Snow Harpy's breath, the Arisen should simply grab them and put them back down to unfreeze them.
