So how the heck do you beat the dragon?

I've been stuck on him for awhile now. Best I've done so far is get him down to around 650 health. Do I just need to get more health or a more powerful sword? Should I be using certain scrolls?

Just takes time. Keep eating candies and upgrading your sword. I found that the teleportation scroll works real well, teleport out when your health is low, heal up, rinse repeat. I think I beat him at around 970 health with the summoning sword, don't know what level.

I did it by using an invulnerability potion as I got close and then using a teleport scroll as soon as a ran out and then another after the cool-down. Repeat as necessary, took me 3 potions.

Using a seed after teleporting can help offset the delay between chugging invincibility potions.

Did exactly this, proud to say I figured it out on my own too. Had to look up some tips to defeat myself though, not quite so obvious.

I did the damage sponge route of building up about 1800 health. The tank in me said this was the most viable option for this fight and whatever would come next.

Candy Box has more gameplay variety than Far Cry 3. Deal with that.

P.S.: If you run into ghosts along the way to the dragon, just escape-potion out and restart. It takes too long and is too costly to get all that health back before the dragon.

I owe the deg a piece of candy, I've been "playing" for weeks.

@psylah: nah, just use a imp scroll or a clone potion. Either one will kill the ghosts.

@psylah: @sexytoad: I think I remember killing an entire screen of ghosts with an acid rain scroll. Or maybe it was whatever is on the stairs.

@mosespippy: that would work as well, but I think that damages te player as well.
