Entry Text
Mimir said of Gondul: "The sight of Gondul always took my breath away. Gondul had a silver tongue, a sharp wit, and struck a figure so stunning, it literally drove men insane. Odin forbid her from stepping foot in Midgard after a time, as insanity is not a welcome trait in Valhalla."

Valkyrie Gondul Fight Guide

Opening Attack

GoW Gondul - Opening.png

Attack as she opens her wings with a flurry of Light and Heavy Runic Attacks. Have Atreus launch a salvo of his Runic Summon, preferrably Wrath of the Wolf. While she is incapacitated, rush her and switch to your other weapon and launch all your Runic Attacks on that weapon.

Valkyrie Gondul Attack Patterns

Attack 1

GoW Gondul - Wing.png

Gondul makes use of the standard Valkyrie attack patterns with her wings – an angular swing, a cyclonic attack, a wing stab, and even the sharp feathers. However, these attacks, apart from the feather strikes, are rarely used. Gondul instead makes use of attacks that take advantage of the wide arena you fight in.

Attack 2

GoW Gondul - Fire Rain.png

An unblockable strike that causes balls of fire to rain down from the sky in a straight line within the space between you and where she casts this attack from. Move away from these balls, and take care not to dodge into them when Gondul follows up with close in strikes.

Attack 3

GoW Gondul Jump.png

An unblockable attack where she rushes up into the air. The ground beneath you will boil in fire, but you must evade twice to avoid her eventual sudden slamming down into the ground where you are.

Attack 4

GoW Gondul - Air Scythe.png

Similar to Eir's attack where she will swing out her Scythe and wave it around, sending out an unblockable pulse. Have Atreus shoot arrows at her to prevent this.

Attack 5

GoW Gondul - Dash Mace.png

Again like Eir, Gondul will dash at you for a strike with her mace, followed up by a blockable follow through attack.

Tips and Strategy

Apart from the arena in Niflheim, the arena you fight Gondul is in large enough to maneuver around very freely in. Take advantage of this fact by dodging a lot, particularly since a lot of Gondul's strikes are ranged and unblockable. The few close-in strikes she has are attacks you must dodge, as otherwise they take out large chunks of your health.
