Facing Rued Head-On

  • Eliminate Rued's Rabid Wolf. This will make the fight a lot easier.
  • Rued occassionally performs a jab with his Great Sword's pommel to throw you off balance. Anticipate this throughout the fight.
  • Be wary of Rued's bolases. He occassionally throws these to knock players off their feet.
  • Rued can engulf his Great Sword with flame! Perform a dodge roll whenever you are set on fire to stop the burning damage.
  • Rued can heal when his health is low. Utilize this opening by performing heavy attacks or high-damage dealing abilities.

Stealth Attacking Rued

IMPORTANT:
This method requires the Advanced Assassination skill to pull off properly.
Performing an Advanced Assassination on Rued will NOT outright kill him.
Rued will only be in a downed state, essentially bypassing the entire boss fight.

WARNING:
This section contains major spoilers about the ending of The Tale of Thegn Oswald story arc. Read on if you do NOT mind spoilers.

Killing Rued results in a smooth wedding ceremony for Oswald and Valdis during the Wedding Horns quest.

Sparing Rued results in a different scenario for the Wedding Horns quest. Rued eventually crashes the celebration and challenges Oswald to a holmgang to the death. You can choose to either let Oswald fight or fight for him.

It is also important to note that Finnr may move to your settlement as a Jomsviking depending on your decisions from this point onward.

He will join the Raven Clan if you decide to either kill Rued now or fight for Oswald when Rued crashes the wedding celebration during the Wedding Horns quest.
