Gullveig Bestiary Entry

Entry Text
A spirit convinced me that Gullveig, a powerful witch that was killed a long time ago, could "reunite" us with Mother. Father didn't believe him. I shouldn't have either... but for a chance to see Mom again, it seemed like we should give it a try, right? Once we collected all her bones, Gullveig was resurrected, and said she'd reunite us, "In death!" And then attacked us. We killed her, obviously. I was really upset with myself. How could I fall for such an obvious lie? But Father said to "take it as a lesson," so that's what I'm gonna do. No more trusting spirits.

Opening Attack

God of War PS4 - Gullveig Opening

Immediately after talking to the spirit on the beach in Mason's Channel, Gullveig will be reanimated. It is best to move away as events unfold, as the Revenant will appear where the spirit you talk to resides, bring along with it Nightmares.

Gullveig Attack Patterns

Attack 1

God of War PS4 - Gullveig Poison Projectiles

From a distance, Gullveig will be able to spew poisonous projectiles at you. These can be dodged easily, and you must do so due to the amount of continuous damage it can cause you once you are afflicted with Poison. Knocking arrows into the Revenant after its attacks can help stun it long enough for you to approach for a hit or two.

Attack 2

God of War PS4 - Gullveig Attack 2

Gullveig also has the capability of rushing you with full intentions of striking at you with its staff. Although blockable, it is recommended that you move away while having Atreus fire Shock Arrows into her that can allow you to strike her while she is momentarily stunned.

Attack 3

God of War PS4 - Gullveig Nightmares

Several Nightmares will appear alongside Gullveig when the fight begins. Although weak, they can hit you with poisonous strikes that have the potential of taking away large portions of your health at a time.

Tips and Strategy

Fighting against Gullveig is not a complicated endeavor. It is difficult however, if you allow the Nightmares that summon alongside her to remain, as they can, along with Gullveig's own attacks, shoot poison projectiles at you.

The key to winning the fight is to take care of the Nightmares as soon as possible while keeping an eye out for Gullveig's moves, as she can easily weave in an out of your defences.
