What’s a fantasy epic without dragons to hunt down? For fans of those magical lizards, Elden Ring has them in spades. However, tracking them down can be quite a challenge. But conquering that challenge will reward the Tarnished with vast sums of Runes and Dragon hearts, which can be exchanged for powerful spells.
