How to Beat Andrius (Lupus Boreas)

Avoid the Frozen Ground

Genshin - Frozen Ground

Most of Lupus Boreas' attacks will only hit anyone who is within the area of the frozen ground. This can help in avoiding the attacks while also having an idea on where Lupus Boreas will be next.

Attack From a Distance

Genshin - Long Range

Lupus Boreas' attacks are mostly melee range so keeping your distance and attacking from afar is a good strategy. Bow users are very effective in this fight, so make sure you have them in your party!

Prepare for Phase 2

Genshin - Phase 2

When Lupus Boreas' HP is redcuded by half, he will immediately move to phase 2 and start with some charge attacks.

Use this time to replenish your stamina and wait for your abilities to cooldown. This way you can immediately use your Elemental Skills and Bursts to take him down once he is vulnerable to your attacks again.

Overload Combo

Use Lisa's Elemental attacks then switch over to Amber or Xiangling to do Pyro damage in order to trigger Overloaded elemental reactions for additional damage.

Fervent Flames

Having 2 or more Pyro element characters will activate the Fervent Flames elemental resonance. This will not only boost your overall ATK by 25%, but it will also counter Cryo effects by 40% making it the perfect Elemental Resonance for this boss fight.

Shield and Heal

Use Noelle's shield in order to reduce the damage you take especially during the 2nd Phase and be careful when using Barbara to heal as you will be affected by Hydro which will freeze you if attacked by Lupus Boreas' Cryo attacks.
