Fastest Way to Get to Andrius (Lupus Boreas)

The fastest way to get to Andrius (Lupus Boreas) is by teleporting to the Cecilia Garden domain, which is just above Andrius' location. Teleporting to Cecilia Garden and making your way south until you reach Andrius is faster than teleporting to the two nearby waypoints.

You of course need to have the Cecilia Garden Domain unlocked before you can teleport to it. Here's our full guide for more information:

Having a Pyro and Electro character in your party will let you overload Andrius and deal extra damage to him. We recommend using a strong, Pyro DPS character who deals big damage in bursts so you can get through the challenge quickly.

We also highly recommend bringing shields and healing characters. This is extra useful for the second phase of the Lupus Boreas fight, where he stays still in one spot. If you have good shields and heals, you can keep hitting Andrius without worrying about getting knocked out!

We have Noelle, Amber, Lisa, and Xiangling as the best free-to-play team because of the Pyro Resonance and because of Noelle's all-around utility.

Noelle will be your shields, your healer, and your main DPS! Amber, Lisa, and Xiangling are there to give you the extra damage boost you need to defeat Andrius.

How to Beat Andrius (Lupus Boreas)

Avoid the Frozen Ground

Genshin - Frozen Ground

Most of Lupus Boreas' attacks will only hit anyone standing on frozen ground. Use this as a reference and stay away from the frozen floor so you dodge Andrius' incoming attacks!

Attack Andrius (Lupus Boreas) from a Distance

Genshin - Long Range
Lupus Boreas' attacks are mostly close-range. We recommend attacking Andrius from a distance using bow characters! If you don't have any well-built bow characters, you can also just dash in and out of attack range to deliver your blows.

Prepare for Andrius (Lupus Boreas)'s Second Phase

Genshin - Phase 2

When Lupus Boreas' HP is redcuded by half, he will immediately move to phase two and start with some charging 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 Andrius down once he'ss vulnerable to your attacks again.
