Dark Souls 3 boss: how to beat Vordt of the Boreal Valley

Now it’s time to lớn make a run on a quái nhân - a real boss khủng - so spend up your spare souls, cấp độ up any equipment you fancy, and gird your loins. The easiest way to lớn reach your foe is from the High Wall of Lothric bonfire. Kill or sneak by the crossbowman, two dogs, two tall guysgrunt, and take the elevator down. Battle or run past the grunt and pack of grunts, then the crossbowman & grunt beyond.

We need to lớn go down the stairs và through the doors at the bottom. As well as the two knights who patrol close khổng lồ the đứng top of the stairs, there are two shielded grunts & a crossbowman on the lower stairs.

You probably don"t want to lớn risk losing health on your way lớn the boss, but you can bypass all of these enemies - and lose the pack trailing you from the lift on, if that"s necessary. All you need to vì is drop down onto a ledge on the side of the stairs, from the arches near where you fight (or run by) a crossbowman and grunt. From here you can either drop down on the stairs side và run past the three baddies down below while they slowly react to your presence, or use Spook & drop down on the side closest lớn your goal to sneak past them completely. They won"t follow you into the monster arena.

However you get there, pass through the doors & into the ominously empty room at the bottom of the stairs. Approach the gates at the other end.

Vordt of the Boreal Valley

Once a knight now hideously transformed into a loyal hound of Lothric, Vordt is thickly armoured but moves on all fours. He uses swiping attacks & has a quick dash move which he"ll use to put distance between you and spin lớn face you if you"ve gotten behind him, & a charge for when he ants to get in close. He also inflicts frostbite status, but unless the battle draws out this shouldn"t be a problem.

For melee characters or quick-fire magic users, there’s a trick lớn this boss, và that is to stay as close lớn it as possible. You don’t need to lớn be behind it; trying khổng lồ assume the dragon-slaying position will usually send him dashing away. Just muscle on up like a rugby scrum against his face, shoulders & belly. You can take a swing at him here if you like, but make sure you’ve got plenty of stamina for when the real fun begins.

When he starts to wind up any move, roll forward; you’ll pass right under and behind him. Give him a whack (or two, if you"re fast) và start again. If he dashes away, immediately sprint after him, aiming for one side so you can roll around the range of any attacks he sends your way as you approach. He has one long-distance attack, but it has a narrow hit zone so you should

In his second form, which triggers about halfway through his health bar, Vordt becomes a bit more deadly: he’s faster, and he inflicts frostbite much more quickly. He also has a new frost breath attack, which fortunately takes a very long time lớn wind up; unless you"re on the other side of the arena, it provides a great opening lớn get behind him.

The same tactics apply for the second phase. If you’re nervous about successfully dodging Vordt"s faster attacks, you can hold your shield up – just remember you need khổng lồ drop it for your stamina to refill. You may want lớn equip armour with higher frost resistance, but if you finish the fight fast enough it won’t be a problem. Just be sure lớn always leave yourself stamina to lớn guard và roll, of course.

If you struggle with this boss, try farming enemies along the walls for a while until you have enough Titanite Shards khổng lồ reinforce your favourite weapon. You might also want khổng lồ use an Ember khổng lồ make yourself a little more hardy & to summon co-op assistance.

When Vordt is down, you"ll receive his soul. Don"t cash it in for currency; you"ll have the chance khổng lồ swap it for something more precious later.

Light the Vordt of the Boreal Valley bonfire then exit through those tempting gates. Assuming you’ve already visited the cathedral lớn receive the key item, approach the edge of the cliff và you’ll be prompted khổng lồ raise your banner for a cutscene. After the short cutscene, activate the Foot of the High Wall bonfire.
