How to Beat Staldra


How to Beat Staldra
Destroy 3 heads at the same time. If you break only one head, the heads will line up in a straight line at the moment of regeneration, so slash them all at once.

Slash All Heads at Once

The best way to slay Staldra is to wait until all the heads line up. In this short window, players should do a slash attack in the direction of the heads to cut the 3 heads in one swipe.

Shield Bash Strategy

The Staldra's eyes turn red right before it attacks so players can use this as an indicator for when to shield bash. With the right timing, the Staldra will be stunned and all the heads will line up. Take this time to slash all the heads and defeat this monster.
