The Alpha Drake is a large drake encountered during Kill the alpha drake, which takes place in the Archen Foreland of Bloodtide Coast. When a Fisherman takes his cattle to the shore to get water, it emerges and swallows the fisherman whole. It must then be killed before it finishes digesting the fisherman.

  • The Alpha Drake is one of few foes to still have Unshakable instead of the Defiance bar mechanic introduced in Heart of Thorns. But nevertheless hitting the Alpha Drake with control effects do not trigger Defiance.
  • The Alpha Drake used to be a champion but was later changed to a normal rank. Despite this, it still has the hp and difficulty of a champion, as well as the unshakable effect.
