Yeah, I was doing it in between other stuff. But I'd slowly ran out of other achievements to go for, and the radiant quests were starting to repeat a lot. I found one eventually. While looking at the Skyrim wiki, there was a picture of one flying above Arcwind Point (a location I hadn't yet discovered somehow), so looked there and *BOOM* Legendary Dragon.

Since they show up more often at higher levels, power-leveling to 81 makes it a lot easier to get this achievement.

This worked like a charm for power leveling..

When I first started working on my illusion skill I chain casted "Calm" on a chicken in a city. Bought some spells for illusion and would cast 2 different, non-aggro spells on NPC's (one in each hand).

Once you have Harmony (part of a mini quest with Delvis in the Winterhold College) and go to a populated area you will level very quickly.. I gained about 3 levels in minutes.

Finally found a damn Legendary dragon. Took me about thirty tries running around all the different dragon sites but finally found one at Mount Anthor. I found nothing but Ancient dragons, a couple Blood dragons, and a normal dragon.

I am level 87 too. Random shit pisses me off in games. Nothing should be random.

I didn't even end up using the Oghma Infinium. I was afraid the game would become a broken mess with the updates cleared. Instead I just spammed Muffle to get my magic up a bit, crafted some jewelry with Fortify Illusion, and then spammed Harmony in Riften marketplace get from level 60 to 81 in MINUTES. (They aren't kidding when they say the Harmony technique is super effective. Incredibly simple and effective.) The first dragon location I selected on the map, completely at random, had a Legendary dragon sitting there waiting for me.

Thanks for the info. Haven't gotten around to this yet but was still thinking of the best route to go. Will do the same as you.

Agreed! I like something that makes all the side quests, exploring and leveling up worth while!

Hey, can confirm. Just turned Lv. 78, traveled to Skyborn Altar and it was there.

Would advise using Dragonrend to keep it grounded and attack from the side. You'll still need a fair few potions though, not many but a good few.

I always figured the legendary dragons were the named ones you occasionally come across. Like you seefrost dragon, elder dragon, etc. But once in a while you encounter a dragon named *JumbleOfConsonants*. Guess not.

Finally!

I started trying to get this achievement at level 76 and by 86 I had still not found a legendary dragon. I killed lots of dragons. But no legendary. I spent 10 hours at least just travelling from dragon hang out to dragon hang out. Never finding a legendary dragon. Maybe because I was playing on an easier level.

I finally found BlueUltraNova - Skyrim - How to find & kill the Legendary Dragon on you tube.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xZxUjHKjBYM

I changed the difficulty to legendary and followed these directions to Archwind Point where I finally found a legendary dragon first time and finally got that last achievement. What a total pain this achievement was! Thanks BlueUltraNova !

Thanks for this! Really helped! Got it right away!~

Went into Gameplay settings switched it to "Legendary" traveled to Autumnwatch Tower. Killed the regular Dragon at the Autumnwatch Tower then I traveled South from there saw an opening between trees for a path took it all the way to Discover Arcwind Point and bam there the Legendary Dragon was.

I'm Level 86 going on 87 btw.

If anyone needs a map on the location:
http://www.uesp.net/maps/srmap/srmap.shtml

Type in Autumnwatch Tower and Arcwind Point after in the search bar.

I turned the difficulty down to Novice he had alot of health even for Novice play.

burned out

I was on level 57 and was trying to finish the last three cheevo's when I discovered that you had to be at least level 70 before you could encounter the legendary dragon. I had already played for over 450 hours and was too burned out on the game to crank out 13 more levels so I gave up trying. I guess that's why they call them achievements.
