How to Beat Stormterror Dvalin

Breaking the Shield

How to Beat - Dvalin 1.PNG
When Dvalin performs the wind breath attack, his claws will hold on to the platform that you are standing on, you can attack these claws to break his shield. Breaking the shield will stun Dvalin for a few seconds making his weak point vulnerable. Once Dvalin is stunned, you must attack the purple crystal above his neck to deal damage.

You can deal some chip damage to this shield by using a character with a bow when he is flying around.

Climbing Up

Once you break Dvalin's shield, he will lie on the platform giving you a chance to attack. If you have mostly melee characters, you can climb up onto his neck to be able to reach and attack the purple crystal.

Changing Platform

How to Beat - Dvalin 3.PNG
Once the platform starts to show some cracks, immediately move to a platform where it does not appear by using the wind swirls that are present at the edge of the platform. Standing on a platform with bright blue cracks will deal damage over time, this can be troublesome especially when you still have to deal with Dvalin's shield.

Opportunity to Attack

You will only be able to attack Dvalin for a short period when he falls, you should save up all of your cooldowns for this moment to deal as much damage as you can before Dvalin recovers from the stun.


Using electro against an enemy with the cryo status will apply superconduct, this will allow you to deal 50% more physical damage which can be extremely useful when bursting down Dvalin's shield.

Quick Bursts

Since you will be able to attack Dvalin for a short period, it is best that you use characters with powerful elemental abilities that can instantly burst down his shield to make him vulnerable.

Impetuous Winds

Having 2 or more Anemo element characters can give you the Impetuous Winds elemental resonance, this will allow you to increase your movement speed making it easier to avoid the charge and bite attacks that are frequently used.

This elemental resonance will also shorten the cooldown of all your abilities.

Attack Patterns

Pattern 1

Dvalin 1.gif
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

Dvalin 2.gif
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

Dvalin 3.gif
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

Dvalin 4.gif
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

Dvalin 5.gif
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

Dvalin 6.gif
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 swirls at the edge of each platform to glide to a safe area.

Pattern 7

Dvalin 7.gif
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.

>>4 not to mention that when the platforms are on light and there's animation going on you can just stand there and take all the dmg because you can't go high up. (today it tried to light up the already light up platforms twice and killed 2 of my characters just standing there) oh and when he gets down? guess what! animation! and more standing on the light! I just love this boss. awesome! lovely.

>>4 ALSO the boss is buggy aF. When I move too fast with Mona and switch character the character is sent to middle of the arena(usually when Dvalin breaths) and the next character nearly gets killed. ALSO when you try to deal damage to the neck when you get him down if you switch character too fast it might teleport you to the middle UNDER the boss. not to mention the splashdmg of those things that comes from the sky. "just avoid the circle" yea. Avoid it really far.
