Boss Strategy: Daudi Hamarr

GoW - Daudi Hamarr Boss Strategy

Like most Trolls you'll encounter throughout your travels, he has three basic attacks he'll try to hit you with – a wide swing attack with his log, a stomp, and an attack where he vertically slams his weapon down on you. Avoid his stomps as it shoots out lava waves at you.

Mastering rolling and dodging makes the fight easier, as well as using ranged attacks with the Leviathan Axe and Atreus' Bow.
