CheckmarkDodge Instead of Blocking

Focus on the Judged Spirit

Judged Spirit
Focusing on the Judged Spirit first will make the entire fight much easier. If ignored, the Judged Spirit can inflict Cursed status on your character, making them take 50% more damage. This can make even the weakest attacks something you can't ignore. Luckily the Judged Spirit does not have much health and only has a few attacks.

Use the Bonfires or Avoid the Ice

The arena for this boss fight is filled with the ice environmental hazard. This will make the battle difficult as you take damage and become slowed whenever you stand on the ice. Luckily, there are a few bonfires around the arena that will give you the Warm status effect that negates the ice. Make sure you have the buff up as much as possible.

Dodge Instead of Blocking

Like other Frost Giants, Bjorn's attacks are slow but deal a ton of damage. Some of his attacks are blockable, but still deal chip damage that can add up if you constantly attack, while other attacks can't be blocked at all. Watching for his attack animations while on the offensive then getting out of the way is your best bet on beating him!
