Boss Strategies: How to Beat Modron

  • Modron opens the fight from range and will constantly shoot you with arrows. Always make sure you are amply covered from her shots as you chase her down.
  • Modron will constantly try to put distance between you and her. Be mindful of oil jars and other hazards while chasing her down.
  • Abilities such as Focus of The Nornir and Harpoon Impalement are extremely useful in this boss fight. Use them to your advantage!
  • Shoot the weak spot on Modron's back when she flees. This will give you enough time to catch up to her in most scenarios.
  • Her second weak spot is located on her left foot and can be easily shot with an arrow.
  • Modron occasionally coats her arrows with Poison Powder Traps. Always stay away from the poison cloud as getting caught within it deals massive poison damage.
  • Modron will sometimes use her spear once you are within melee range. Be mindful of her extremely quick attack combinations.
  • Modron occassionally lights the tip of her spear on fire and deal burn damage to you when attacks connect.
  • Shoot oil jars in case Modron positions beside any to deal massive burn damage to her.

Kill or Spare Modron?

WARNING: This section contains spoilers. Read on if you do NOT mind spoilers.

This is a minor decision that only affects the final cutscene of The Burning of The Wicker Man quest later on.

Tewdwr will be ealdorman regardless of your choice and ultimately boils down to which one resonates with you more after considering all that has happened so far in the story arc.

It is important to note that Gwynedd, Cynon and Modron's daughter, will oversee the Wicker Man ritual at Glowecestre if you decide to kill Modron.

Gwynedd will warn you of fate's punishment for killing her mother later on but this does not affect the events of Assassin's Creed Valhalla's story in any way.
