V Rising

How to Beat Nicholaus the Fallen in V Rising

V Rising comes with a bunch of interesting game elements that help to set the game apart from other vampire games on the market. These include castle building and unique combat that does not suck. The game also includes 13 bosses to beat in the Farbane Woods area. These boss fights can become particularly demanding and difficult, but V Rising is not a Soulsborne game, so you need not worry.

Nicholaus the Fallen is the last of the 13 bosses available in the Farbane Woods area of the game. Thus, it makes sense he will be the hardest fight in all of V Rising. So, let us look at ways to defeat this boss, and claim the rewards.

Where to Find the Boss Nicholaus the Fallen in V Rising?

Finding Nicholaus the Fallen is not the hardest you will come across in V Rising. He resides in the Forgotten Cemetry, just southwest of the Farbane Woods area where the bandit camp and the second-last boss of the game, Quincey the Bandit King, can be found.

What Gear is Recommended for Beating Nicholaus the Fallen?

Nicholaus the Fallen is almost as hard as Quincey the Bandit King. You need to have at least the Merciless Nightstalker armor and the Merciless Copper weapons set equipped.

Having a lot of iron equipment will help in defeating the boss. You also need to have a bunch of Blood Rose Brew to heal yourself as defeating Nicholaus the Fallen will take a while. Shielding powers or AOE will also help when Nicholaus spawns a lot of skeletons.

How to Beat Nicholaus the Fallen While Playing the Game Solo?

You need to keep a few things in mind while trying to defeat Nicholaus the Fallen. These include:

  1. Deal with the skeletons Nicholaus summons from the ground as quickly as possible. The boss will summon armored skeletons once his health is low. As soon as these skeletons appear, your priority would be to try and obliterate them as soon as possible. Once they start piling up, they will become a serious issue to deal with within a few waves.
  2. Nicholaus’ projectiles explode in contact with you or other environmental objects. So, try to stay away from the walls and other objects lying nearby.
  3. Try to stay away from the place where he teleports. He causes everyone nearby to fear, so staying away will help you in dealing with the boss rather than getting locked up in his spell.


V Rising, the vampire survival game, is finally out. It is extremely fun. The developers, Stunlock Studios, call it a “genre-defining” title.

These attacks are coupled with charges from a distance. Quincey will smash his shield at you, thereby taking away a huge portion of your health.
