How to Defeat Eikthyr in Valheim
Make sure you prepare Gears to fight this boss. No need the complicated items, you can defeat Eikthyr with the early game weapon. As our experience, you need a flint spear and a shield. Also, you need the food to bring back your losing health and stamina.
You have to learn some Eikthyr attack patterns so it’s easy to defend and offend. Here’s the explanation:
- Eikthyr will perform a lightning attack when the body is lifted for about 1 second. You can avoid the front of the monster to avoid lightning attacks that strike straight. If so, you can use the arrows to attack him from the side. You can also use this opportunity to do the healing.
- The next attack is a ball of lightning that can strike you from several sides. This attack has the same characteristics as the first one, except that Eikthyr will lift the front of his body for approximately 3 seconds. Move away from the enemy to avoid the lightning ball.
- This one’s a pretty risky attack. Because the monster will chase using its horns to attack you. This is when you can use your Shield in the face of these attacks. Stay where you are and lift your shields until they finally hit. If so, the Stunt will appear on the enemy and carry out an attack using a spear.
