How to Beat Stormterror Dvalin

Break Dvalin's Shield

Genshin - Breaking Dvalin

Before you can do any damage to Dvalin, you'll have to destroy his shield first represented by the bar below his HP. Some of Dvalin's attacks will perch on the platform that you're on, during this time you can attack the claws in order to destroy his shield.

Once the shield is broken, Dvalin will be stunned for a few seconds exposing the weakpoint on his neck.

Use Bow Characters

While Dvalin is flying you can also use bow characters to damage his shield, so you don't have to wait for him to go down.

Attacking the Weakpoint

Genshin - Climb and Attack the weakpoint

When Dvalin's shield is broken, he will collapse on the platform for a few seconds giving you a chance to attack the weakpoint on his neck. If you have ranged characters you can just directly attack it.

If you only have melee characters, you will have to climb the neck in order to attack it.

Changing Platforms

Genshin - Moving to a Different Platform

When Dvalin's HP drops below half, he will do a special attack that will crack the platform that you're currently on, dealing damage to you overtime. The safest option is to move to the wind current to either side of the platform and glide to the next platform.

You may need to move a number of platforms before you reach an undamaged one.

Stormterror Dvalin Attack Patterns

Pattern 1 - Bite Attack

Dvalin Bite Attack

A bite attack that can be avoided by moving the edge of the platform. After Dvalin attacks, you have a small window where you can attack his neck and head with your melee characters.

Pattern 2 - Breath Sweep

Dvalin Sweep Attack

Dvalin will slowly move from left to right or right to left depending on which side Dvalin faces when he holds the platform. You can avoid this by moving to the opposite side of where Dvalin starts his wind breath attack.

You can also use this opportunity to attack the claws and break his shield.

Pattern 3 - Sweeping Attack

Dvalin Sweeping Attack

A fast-moving charge attack that can be avoided by running to your left or right. There is also a safe spot between his claws but you should only try to use this when you are sure that you will not be able to move away from the attack.

Pattern 4 - Meteor Fall

Dvalin Meteor Fall

You can avoid this by moving outside of the blue circle that will start to appear on the ground after Dvalin flies around the stage.

Pattern 5 - Double Wind Orb

Dvalin Wind Orb

Dvalin fires two wind projectiles towards the platform, avoid this by running left or right. Take note that this attack has a small explosion radius upon contact, make sure that you are not within its range to prevent any damage.

Pattern 6 - Cracking Roar

Dvalin Cracking Roar

Dvalin's signature skill where some of the platforms in the stage will start to show blue cracks. Standing on these blue cracks for a long time will deal damage. You can use the wind currents at the edge of each platform to glide to a safe area.

Pattern 7 - Wind Orb Burst

Dvalin Orb Burst

A slow yet powerful wind projectile that can hit anyone standing on the platform it is aimed at. You can avoid taking damage from this attack by immediately moving to the next platform as soon as the attack animation starts.

I love your website!

There is, in fact, a time where NO spot on ANY platform is safe to stand. Also, I am using mobile and bow characters suck. Aiming will suddenly jolt after clicking/releasing to shoot. I experienced this both with and without gyro controls. I even used my stylus to precisely position it while minimizing motion of the device. No success. I don't understand "auto attack" being used to describe the attack as it is not automatic, especially with a bow(which you either tap many times or charge.)
