Entry Text
Mimir said of Eir: "The Healer. Strange, for a Valkyrie. Very quiet. Very calm. Where her sisters were violent rapids, Eir was a gentle stream. She healed the wounds of both mortals and gods... and even a certain all-knowing sage who once drank too much and fell off a mountain."

Valkyrie Eir Fight Guide

Opening Attack

GoW Eir - Opening.png

As usual, open with a Light and Heavy Runic attack as the Valkyrie opens its wings. Add Atreus' Runic Summon into mix. If you time each attack right, two to two and half bars of her health should be taken out.

Valkyrie Eir Attack Patterns

Attack 1

GoW Eir - Shield.png

Although not really an attack, Eir will use her wings to guard herself. Take care not to strike these wings twice, as she can deliver a devastating counter attack against you. You can break this shield of hers with a runic attack or with your shield.

Attack 2

GoW Eir - Wings.png

As usual for most Valkyries, Eir will also possess the standard Valkyrie attack of swinging their wings at you at an angle. Another variant of this attack, the wing stab, is also present in this fight, even if she rarely uses it.

Attack 3

GoW Eir - Flight.png

When she swings her scythe while flying in the air, have Atreus quickly shoot her down to prevent her from being able to send an unblockable attack that you also cannot avoid.

Attack 4

GoW Eir - Dash.png

Eir will dash at you to deliver an unblockable attack. Dodge this, and block or dodge the secondary attack she unleashes with her mace.

Tips and Strategy

Eir is not a difficult Valkyrie to defeat. Her weakness lies in her slowness and defensive nature, which you can fully take advantage of with proper spacing in the arena you fight in and timely dodging as her attacks are powerful despite being slow. When she uses her wings to shield herself, this is when she is actually most vulnerable as a quick runic attack or shield bash will render her unable to defend herself for a while.
