Boss Strategies: How to Beat Galan, Son of Mordeleg

Honor Has Two Edges - Galan boss fight banner.png

  • Galan's far-reaching attacks combined with the confined space of the building can make this fight difficult at times. Keep your stamina topped-off at all times.
  • Galan's weak spots are easy to hit. Shoot them with arrows to quickly drain his stun bar.
  • Most of Galan's attacks are light and can be easily parried. Use this to your advantage.
  • Galan will occassionally charge his weapon and perform a heavy attack
  • Ignite the oil jars if Galan is standing next to one.
  • You can have an early advantage leading into the fight by performing a stealth attack from the top of the building. See our stealth guide to know how to get on top of the building.
  • The entire boss fight can be bypassed by performing an advanced assassination on Galan. It is important to note, however, that the advanced assassination prompt is very thin and is possibly the hardest one to pull off in the entire game.

Stealth Guide: Sneaking into Stenwege Camp

This method requires the Advanced Assassination skill.
Start by climbing a tree located at the northwest of Stenwege Camp.
Be mindful of guards stationed along the outer wall. Eliminate them with your bow if necessary.
Sneak towards Galan's building. Eliminate any guards in your way.
Climb to the top of the building and position yourself atop the building's innermost ring.
Position yourself directly above Galan and perform an advanced assassination.
Performing this properly will bypass his entire boss fight.
