In Candy Box, How do I beat the dragon at the end of the castle keep level? Even with a Level 2 sword of life, starting the fight with an invincibility buff, and 170hp I'm only getting it down to 700hp.
The way I did it seems pretty fool-proof. I just ran in and popped an invulnerability potion right before I touched the boss. Then when it runs out teleport back. When you get to the boss next time, the timer still won't be up though, so you'll have to use another teleport scroll, but then the next time you can turn invincible again, and repeat the strategy until victory. It's pretty costly, but the winnings will pay for it easily.
I guess my way kind of sucked, but I kept eating candies until I got up to around 1000hp myself, then just kept drinking major health potions whenever possible.
By eating 17 000 000 candies, I had 1755 HP and when in front of the dragon, I just used an invincibility potion, having so much HP let me use another one and by the time I use the 2 potions, the dragon is left with a few HP and I still had 200HP when he died.
invincible, teleport, seed, repeat is the basic way to beat the dragon.
if you have to, use the cloning/seed combo in the cauldron (burn water, 869050/22750/1950 candies, stop, bottle for 650 cloning 1337 seeds/17 cloning 35 seeds/1 cloning 3 seeds)
if you have enough health, you could also clone at beginning, then invincible/fire scroll if needed.
