List of Contents
|We ran into an Ancient of the Forest on our way out of Fafnir's Storeroom. This one was walking around, instead of just hibernating like most of them do. Or maybe we woke it up while we were trying to get inside? These Ancients are kind of beautiful... I wish their hearts weren't so valuable.
|Flaming Projectiles, Laser Beams
|The Forest Ancient appears in the forest of Fafnir's Storeroom after retrieving the knife of Fafnir's Son.
The secret to this fight, is to position yourself behind the surrounding trees while the Forest Ancient attacks. A majority of its attacks can be blocked by the terrain giving you multiple openings to attack.
The Forest Ancient's first attack is similar to the Fire Ancient. It will expose its core and shoot flaming projectiles directly at you.
The second attack will make the Forest Ancient fire a laser beam from its core. This attack has two variations where it will target you directly or shooting the beam in a wide area.
The 3rd and 4th attack of the Forest Ancient rarely happens. This attack only happens when you are close to melee range with it. A red circle will flash on the Forest Ancient signaling you that it will do a close range attack.
The trick to defeating the Forest Ancient is to position yourself behind a tree while waiting for it to expose its core. Small fragments of the Ancient will drop if you hit its core.
If you throw 2 of the fragments back to the Forest Ancient, you will be able knock them down and deal massive damage to them using the R3 button.
