How to Beat Golden Wolflord in Genshin Impact
There are two basic but very helpful tips that you should remember when fighting Golden Wolflord. The first is to avoid attacks. These are all the attacks that Golden Wolflord uses.
- Skull Strike
- Ramming Attack
- Rifthound Minion (Spawn, Stun, and Projectiles)
- Earthshaking Dive
- Laser Beam
If you are alert and careful then you should be able to dodge them with ease. The next important and basic tip is to time your attacks. You can attack the boss when it prepares its attack or is in the middle of an attack. For example, in the case of the Laser beam attack, you can attack it on the side or back with a melee character while it launches the beam from its mouth.
It is recommended to initially just learn its attack pattern and avoid attacking at all. Once you understand all the openings and when to attack you should be able to deal massive damage in no time.
After you chip away 1/3rd of his health the Golden Wolflord will get a shield. You can destroy this shield by breaking the three Rifthound Skulls. And throughout the fight try dealing Geo damage to it. The Rifthound Skulls also deal projectile damage. Also during the Shield phase, the Wolflord will use an AoE attack that covers most of the battlefield. So during this attack try to run outwards to be able to dodge it easily
When you break all three skulls the boss falls on the ground for a long time. Use this chance to chip away as much health as you can.
Repeat avoid getting hit and attacking when you find an opening and you should beat him in no time.
Best Recommended Characters that you can use to beat Golden Wolflord
Since Wolflord will be in the air most of the time. It is best if you avoid fighting using Melee characters. So for you to beat him the best characters are ranged characters. And the best character for this battle is Ningguang. Not only because she uses Catalyst attacks but also uses Geo. You could also use Ganyu for her ranged attacks but remember that she is Cyro. And if you are insistent on using a melee character then you can go with Zhongli as he uses Geo. Gorou is also a good choice, only that it hasn’t been released at the time of writing this article. But if you happen to read this article and Gorou has launched then that is also an excellent choice for this battle.
