How to Beat the Wrath of the Druids Balor in AC Valhalla?


Assassins Creed Valhalla Wrath Of The Druids Balor Boss Fight

To defeat Balor in AC Valhalla Wrath of the Druids, players must be prepared to engage in a full-fledged boss fight against an opponent designed to inflict significant damage with big, sweeping strikes. You must also learn his attack variations and timings. So let’s look at how to beat Balor below:

  • Balor is immune to much of your hits with melee weapons.
  • You should maintain a safe distance and make use of your ranged weapons and abilities.
  • Balor may be defeated with Mark of Death and Focus of the Nornir.
  • If Balor uses the Aerial Dive, Flaming Sword, or Cyclops Laser skills, make sure you can dodge easily. With some practice, you should be able to absolutely deplete his fitness.
  • Balor’s health may be depleted with status-inflicting skills that generate fire or poison.
  • Balor isn’t particularly vulnerable to stun damage. If you want to go that route, you’ll need to target vulnerabilities with arrows. Choose weapons that can do a lot of damage in a short amount of time, either with rapid assaults or single, strong hits.
  • Prepare to enter with full arrows and rations. This will be a long battle, and you’ll need all of your resources.
  • Prepare to dodge to the side when Balor leaps into the air to avoid his Aerial Dive attack.
  • Balor is vulnerable to arrows on his arm, knee, and back. The third one is the most difficult, but if you can master the slow-motion dodge effect, you can beat it.
  • Balor’s attack will always be interrupted if you hit any of these vulnerable areas for the first time.
  • To beat Balor in AC Valhalla, you can focus on using a faster less accurate bow instead of a precision one if you are having trouble hitting his back.

  • Balor will remove his mask and reveal his third eye on his forehead once he has been reduced to two-thirds of his health bar. You’ve entered phase two of the fight when you see this.
  • Balor can also launch a destructive laser attack from his third eye. It’ll be impossible to skip this one. For any chance of escaping, you must strafe around him as quickly as possible. It erodes your health in a steady phase, so being hit won’t destroy you right away, but being stuck in it for a long time can be disastrous.
  • Balor unleashes more attack abilities once the second phase beings.
  • These abilities can be dodged, but you must exercise caution.
  • You can swing at Balor a few times as you try to avoid the Demonic Circle’s attack to induce the sluggish impact.
  • Balor’s attacks have the ability to destroy pillars of rock. You can use supplies and arrows in some of them. If you’re low on supplies, try luring Balor into shattering them.
  • Remember these inputs and keep repeating your attacks and abilities to beat Balor in no time.
  • Once you defeat him you will get the Gae Bolg, the mythical spear of the Irish demigod Cúchulainn.
