Entry Text
Mimir said of Geirdriful: "Master of Arms in Valhalla. Responsible for arming and training Odin's einherjar. His army, come Ragnarok. The einherjar wait in the great hall, endlessly feasting, drinking and fu— ahem uh... fornicating themselves silly. Once Ragnarok begins, Odin calls them into service to fight on his behalf. Geirdriful had her hands full, training that lot."

Valkyrie Geirdriful Fight Guide

Opening Attack

GoW Geirdriful - Opening.png

With the Blades of Chaos, immediately launch a salvo of Light and Runic Attacks. In the middle of each, have Atreus use his Runic Summon to continously damage Geirdriful without her being able to move. If successful, you will have taken out nearly half of her health bar.

Valkyrie Geirdriful Attack Patterns

Attack 1

GoW Geirdriful - Rings.png

Like Kara, she will shoot rings at you that you cannot dodge. Block these, and move out of the way of the variant of this attack which is an unblockable ring she throws straight at you.

Attack 2

GoW Geirdriful - Feathers.png

Using her wings, she'll send blade-like feathers at you. Dodge right, and look out for her unblockable wing stab where she dashes at you quickly after a salvo of feathers. Also dodge right to avoid this strike.

Attack 3

GoW Geirdriful - Blinding Strike.png

When you see her lift up into the air where she spreads her arms wide, have Atreus quickly shoot arrows at her to prevent her from unleashing an unblockable strike that blinds you. It is critical that you prevent her from doing this, as you will be left extremely vulnerable to her advances while blinded.

Attack 4

GoW Geirdriful - Valhalla Strike.png

When you see Geirdriful fly for a few moments in the air, quickly evade away, as she will unleash an unblockable grab where she drags you along the ground, which causes massive damage.

Attack 5

GoW Geirdriful - Scythe.png

Geirdriful will take out her scythe and drag it along the ground, unleashing an unblockable wave. Evade out of the way.

Attack 6

GoW Geirdriful - Wings.png

A regular Valkyrie attack, where she will swipe at you at an angle with her wings. Block these and move out of the way. A variant of this will be her moving in to strike you with her wings in a cyclone. These are blockable.

Tips and Strategy

Geirdriful likes to switch up her attacks, but her most common one is where she sends sharp feathers your way before going in for a wing stab. Although uncommon, her cyclonic wind swipes are also very deadly, as it leaves you extremely vulnerable.

Save Atreus' arrows for when she attempts to use her unblockable blinding strike in the air. Make use of the Talisman of Realms about midway through the battle, and don't use your Berserker's Resurrection Stone for its Spartan Rage bonus until her health is about 2/3 depleted.
