How to Beat the Duke of Balaton in V Rising
The Duke of Balaton has a high health bar and that can make this one of the longest fights that you will have to face in V Rising. To stay ahead, you will have to make sure that you dodge as many of his attacks as possible. And keep as many healing items with you as you possibly can.
This boss has a ton of abilities. Make sure to watch out for his jumping, slamming, and tongue-licking abilities as they are vicious. His tongue is like a melee weapon so the hit is that much worse in comparison.
To defeat him, it is recommended that you use long-ranged weapons like the crossbow. As well as protective gear like the Bone Shield to block his attacks. Once he gets to 50% health, be sure to get ready to deal with his hatchlings. As he spawns eggs that you will have to fight until he returns.
Once you defeat the Duke of Balaton, you will be able to unlock the Toad Form ability. Using this ability, you can transform into a toad yourself at will.
