Boss Strategy: Baldur

Your last fight with Baldur is very much like your first one with him. He will stil use his ability to flash from place to place to confuse you – roll out of the way when he comes in for an attack, and parry his attempts to flash straight towards you for a punch.

First Phase

The first phase of this fight will involve Freya constantly getting in your way by trapping you in roots whenever you and Baldur finish having a row. Break out of them before Baldur does. Baldur will try to use his speed against you, and try to rush you for an attack. Block, dodge, or parry these and strike back.

Second Phase

This phase is much like the first – instead of vines, Freya will make use of the giant's hands to send disruptive wave attacks against you. Block these.

You must use the Blades of Chaos throughout the majority of this fight, as Baldur will encapsulate himsef in an aura of ice the Leviathan Axe will simply bounce off of. You must also dodge or block the shards of ice he sends your way.

Third Phase

You must use your Leviathan Axe for this phase, as Baldur wraps himself in a flaming aura. Freya will send Broods down on you, so be wary of their charges and attacks.

Baldur himself will jump straight into the air and come crashing back down. Dodge these attacks and turn to attack him. Atreus' Shock Arrows are useful in these situations, so that you can slightly stun Baldur and cause some damage while his arrows bounce off to hit Broods.

Fourth Phase

You will start off in Spartan Rage with however much rage you still have left – make sure to make the most out of it. Once you return to normal, you must pay attention to Baldur's color and switch between your weapons accordingly. Remember his attack patterns from the previous phases, and dodge them here.
