Boss Strategies

How to Beat Sigurd

A Brother

  • You are invulnerable to any form of damage during this fight.
  • Sigurd will lose his right arm again as soon as he drops to about 50% HP. This marks the end of the boss fight.

How to Beat Odin

A Brother

  • You cannot die during this boss fight.
  • The goal of this fight is to escape the simulation by reaching the giant door that spawns after your HP drops to zero for the first time.
  • Odin will drag you back to the fight if you try to reach the giant door with your axe equipped.
  • Unequip your axe via the inventory menu and run towards the giant door to finish the boss fight and trigger a cutscene.

How to Beat Basim

A Brother

Phase One

  • Basim is a very agile and cunning fighter that uses multiple assassin tools and techniques to take you down.
  • Basim constantly climbs to the top of the pillars and perform a heavy leaping attack towards you. Dodge out of the way at all times.
  • Basim constantly drops smoke bombs to disorient and stun you. Anticipate these throughout the fight.
  • Basim does not have a health bar for the entirety of this boss fight. The goal is to simply survive and deal as much damage as possible until the next phase.

Phase Two

  • Phase two starts in the lift that you and Sigurd used to get down to the Isu Vault's central platform.
  • Basim will start using his wire to pull you within his range and perform an attack, similar to the Harpoon Impalement ability.
  • Basim starts evading attacks more, similar to how Ivarr dodges your attacks during his boss fight.
  • Basim is susceptible to stun attacks and parries once the lift reaches a certain height.
  • Phase Two ends in a chase sequence back towards the Isu Vault's central platform.

Phase Three

  • Phase three starts after chasing Basim all the way down to the central platform of the Isu Vault.
  • Perform a stun attack on Basim while he is inside the circle to end the boss fight.
