You need to destroy the crystals to stop the dragon from healing

The best way to destroy these crystals is by using a bow or crossbow from far away because these crystals explode when destroyed. But if you don't like sneaking and sniping, you can just climb up and destroy it up close. This will be harder as the dragon will try to knock you off. If you got knocked off to the ground, use the water bucket trick to take zero damage.

After you have destroyed all the crystals, the dragon will not be able to heal anymore. Therefore, any damage you deal to it is permanent now. You can kill it with any weapon or mean. Also note that the dragon will fight back with melee attacks, fireballs, and breath. That's why you should be well prepared with food, armor, potions for the fight.

There is also another advanced technique that will help you kill the dragon in just seconds without the need to destroy the crystals. However, it is quite complicated. You can check out the video below to learn how.

When the dragon is defeated, it will explode into lights and turn into green dust raining down the ground.
