Mimir said of Kara: "Wild Storm personified. Calm and collected... Then the air would shift, and the fury of her storm would unleash. 'Twas beautiful, in a way, assuming you could find proper shelter. Her tears would cleanse the blood-soaked battlefields."

Valkyrie Kara Fight Guide

Opening Attack

GoW Kara - Opening.png

It is critical that you attack first with your Light and Heavy Runic Attacks from either weapon. Kara will move out of the way once finished and summon Draugr to fight alongside her.

Valkyrie Kara Attack Patterns

Attack 1

GoW Kara - Charging Scythe.png

Like most of her sisters, Kara has the ability to charge at you to strike in close with her Scythe. Parry this to momentarily leave her vulnerable for a Runic Attack or a quick combo. A variation of this attack will see her take to the air first before coming down for a strike.

Attack 2

GoW Kara - Feathers.png

Kara will send sharpened feathers from her wings against you. It is wiser to dodge these and prepare for a parry, as she can use a charging Scythe attack following this one. She rarely uses this attack however.

Attack 3

GoW Kara - Rings.png

She will lift into the air and send rings that you cannot dodge and must block. A variation of this will be her sending an unblockable ring you must evade straight at you.

Attack 4

GoW Kara - Wing Slash.png

Another common attack, she will use her wings to swipe at you from an angle. Even if you have some distance between you and her, she can close the gap quickly. Block these and assault her after she finishes, as she does not finish this attack with the unblockable Wing Stab her sisters utilize.

Dealing with the Draugr

GoW Kara - Draugr.png

When Kara first summons them, use Hyperion Slam quickly while they're grouped together. Have Atreus deliver Runic Summons of Falcon's Dive to damage even Kara herself while you finish off the Draugr. Combine this with the use of your Leviathan Axe's Light and Heavy Runic Attacks, and you will have mopped the floor with the undead.

Tips and Strategy

Kara is vulnerable as she summons the Draugr. Due to how close the undead spawn around her, using Hyperion Slam on the group while they're close together not only heavily damages the Draugr, but Kara herself. Have Atreus disrupt attacks by making full use of his Shock Arrows.

Lastly, make good use of the Blades of Chaos to have a very wide area to damage, as each swing can hit 2 or 3 Draugr if they're close enough to your intended target.
