Balsvin Boss Fight Guide in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla The Forgotten Saga- How to Beat?
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla- Forgotten Saga has introduced many new enemies, each of which has its unique fighting style. Unfortunately, Balsvin is one of those enemies who are pretty challenging to defeat. This enemy has unique moves that are sometimes difficult to avoid. One of the frequent moves Balsvin uses is the Charge Attack. Though the attack gives you time so you can dodge it, if you are not careful and hit by it, you’ll take considerable damage.
Another frequent attack of Balsvin is the Faint Circle attack, which is pretty challenging to avoid. During this attack, a faint circle appears, and it’ll follow you before it stops and gets on fire. The best way to avoid this attack is to move continuously.
The third attack Blasvin uses is the Slamming attack, where he slams the ground thrice. Before the attack begins, you’ll find a red circle to indicate the attack is coming so you can jump out from the area if you are near it. With the third slam, the enemy throws fire, spreading around the circle. Therefore, don’t stay near the red circle.
While attacking Balsvin, try to keep your distance from him. Don’t go too near. Instead, shoot arrows from a distance to deal damage. Using bows and arrows can deal lots of damage to Balsvin, and you can defeat the giant bore easily. However, no matter what you do, don’t forget to watch out for its attacks because they also deal a lot of damage. That’s all you need to know about fighting Balsvin in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla- Forgotten Saga. Though it is the first boss you encounter in the game, it is not an easy enemy.
